Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary was a full house of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders as kids “Took a Bite Out of Spring Break” Thursday and Friday.During the course of two days, students learned about sharks, and the ocean Eco System. Without sharks, the ocean, and parts of the Great Lakes would be doomed.Education Coordinator, Erin Pilarski said learning about the fundamentals of the ocean isn’t just why this spring break event held, she says take a bite out of spring break also keeps kids active, while learning other skills during their time out of school.“Not only does it get kids interacting with different groups from different people. It also helps them to learn skills for teamwork, like working in teams, activities, and getting better social skills. It also gives them new opportunities to learn topics that they probably wouldn’t learn in school,” Pilarski said.If your child missed out on this week’s fun, don’t worry there will be another opportunity for them to enjoy the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary this summer.You can register early to ensure their spot by dropping off a completed registration form to the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center.For additional details contact the sanctuary at 989–884–6200.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Great Lake Maritime Heritage Center, Spring Break, Take a Bite Out of Spring Break, Thunder Bay National Marine SanctuaryContinue ReadingPrevious Allor Supports Education BudgetNext Pinwheel Garden Planted in Harrisville for Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness Monthlast_img read more

You don’t see or hear anybody from the Sandusky family saying he’s innocent, do ya…well do ya?:09 Chris Dorner, the on the run ex-military, ex-policeman out of Los Angeles will reach a small level of martyrship for blowing the whistle on a legendary racist police department. But it’s not likely he’ll live long enough to know about it. Hell. They didn’t put “A Million Dollar” wanted dead or alive hit on Al Capone and he killed anything that moved and brought the gates of hell down on Chicago.:08 Man, did you see Beyonce at the Super Bowl?…Neal…Neal…What? Let it go man, she’s not calling you back. Just let it go.—-She’ll call back, you’ll see, you’ll all see!:07 It gives me great pleasure to congratulate my long time friend Dr. Vernon Tipton and all the great Wilkinsburg folks honored at Ralph Watson’s “Classic Events” Black History Celebration at the Hosanna House last Saturday. A great event and job well done by a hard working good brother, Ralph Watson. Hey Ralph…”Be Blessed!”:06 The only thing missing from the Notre Dame Louisville “5 Overtime” classic matchup was Dwight “The Iceman” Clay launching the winning shot to shake up the world. If you don’t know by now, Notre Dame won the game. And “The Iceman” just celebrated a big birthday bash. (Hey “Ice” thanks for the invite…not!) Oh but when you wanted “The Silver Streak” back in the day for you and Duck Williams to cruise the Golden Dome campus, then I was your boy, huh? No worries, I still love ya man. :05 High school basketball playoffs coming at ya soon. Let’s get out and support our student athletes. And you parents, you know the ones that are supposed to be the grown ups. Will you please stop trying to live out your failed high school career through your kids. Just go to the games, clap, cheer, and go home. And stop this stupid fighting at the games. C’mon man! Listen my people, we-are-so-much-better-than-that…Fighting over kids in a basketball game. C’mon man and c’mon women!last_img read more
