Lake Erie Threatened Again

Lake Erie

Here in Monroe we live on Lake Erie. We swim in it, boat on it, fish from it (the "walleye capital of the world"), and beach next to it. I do many of my solitary prayer times at our state park on the lake.

Years ago it was threatened by pollution but made a comeback and became a poster child for ecological recovery. Today's nytimes headlines read: "Spring Rain, Then Foul Algae in Ailing Lake Erie."
