Sing to the song of Huey Lewis & The News, I need a new drug.

I need a new Neighbor, one that's talking behind my back- one that's not watching me take a bath; I need a new Neighbor, one that's not blowing grass into my yard - one that's not going into my barn; I need a new Neighbor,
one that's not dissing me to a neighbor - than asking me to do them a favor; I need a new Neighbor, one that's not talking me down at a water board meeting -than siting cheek to cheek with a member of the hood; I need a new Neighbor,
one that's not hiding a gun from his wife because she thinks they only take animal lives, (nothing to do with protecting your home and preventing Tyranny, clueless);  I need a new Neighbor, one that's not digging weeds after they weed and feed - one that's not washing his truck with a toothbrush; I need a new Neighbor, Soon, Please.

U.S. Boaters

Ritchie: New Canadian Law Lifts Cloud Over U.S. Boaters

June 14, 2017
(Patty)Ritchie(Republican) Joins Forces With Canadian Senator, Member of Parliament To Boost Tourism and Strengthen Economies Of Two Nations
State Senator Patty Ritchie has announced the passage of a new Canadian law that lifts a cloud of uncertainty over boaters rights on the St. Lawrence River that was hurting 1000 Islands tourism and threatening to sour longstanding bonds of friendship between two of the world’s greatest nations.
Under this new law, American boaters who do not anchor their boat or step foot on Canadian soil do not have to report to Canadian Customs. In addition, the measure will also exempt Canadian boaters from being required to report to their customs officials when they return to Canadian waters, as long as they met the same requirements while they traveled in U.S. waters.

Plan 2014




High water on Lake Ontario: Who's to blame?





The current system of managing water levels and flow for Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River has been in place for more than 50 years, and is slowly killing the lake’s ecosystem. Plan 2014 offers us the opportunity to reverse the devastating consequences for the environment, property owners, and industries — like tourism and hunting/fishing — that rely on a healthy lake. Plan 2014 will restore Lake Ontario and help revitalize the communities on the shoreline.

Lake temps

The Lake Erie water temperature is taken at the Buffalo Water Treatment Plant located on Lake Erie at the entrance to the Niagara River.  The reading is taken at a depth of 30 feet. Lake Erie temperature updated : April 18, 2013
Latest Lake Erie Temperature

The Lake Ontario water temperature is taken at the Monroe county water treatment plant near Greece, N.Y. The temperatures is measured at the intake pipes about 1500 feet offshore at a approximate depth of 35 feet. The Lake Ontario temperature occasionally may not be representative of the surface temperature due to upwelling. This process, more common during the summer months, brings colder water from the deeper parts of the lake toward the surface near the temperature sensor. The surface water may be significantly warmer.
