ST. MARYS â€” In an effort to keep residents abreast of algal concerns in Ohio waterways, state officials unveiled a new website Monday to serve as a one-stop shop.
OhioAlgaeInfo.com will serve as a website residents can visit that will provide up-to-date information regarding algal outbreaks and any current advisories for Ohio waterways. The response strategy includes three recreational use advisories as well as drinking water advisories.
CELINA â€” Erica Gelhaus leads the six, small girls gathered at the Richardson Bretz Building, pulsing her arms in a beat, as the children breathe in, breathe out, then pant like a dog.
The breathing exercises are to warm up their vocal chords, Gelhaus tells the children. The former Miss Ohio and St. Henry native also explains to the children how their vocal chords vibrate â€” whether it be fast or slow â€” to create high and low notes. Itâ€™s all part of â€śSingers on Stage,â€ť a new Arts in the Parks program presented by Arts Place.
CELINA â€” Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey announced Tuesday the arrest of three more subjects on drug trafficking charges. All but three of the offenders indicted by the May grand jury have been arrested. Two of the remaining are incarcerated at this time in another facility on unrelated charges, but will be returned to Mercer County at the completion of their sentence at that facility. Deputies are working with South Carolina authorities attempting to locate the remaining suspect.
