Catching Walleye during a Mayfly Hatch

Frank Smith

Anyone who lives near Lake Erie is familiar with the massive Mayfly hatches we endure each spring around this time. In the “nymph” stage, they can live under water for several years. As they mature, the metamorphoses of the nymph into a mature Mayfly happens over several stages of molts, and when they reach the surface of the lake, or river, they are winged little beauties that will live for only one day.  Their only purpose at this stage is to mate and reproduce. It’s kind of sad when you think about it really, they finally free themselves of the water, and all that would gladly eat them, only to be able to soar like an eagle for one day, and then they die.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

Team Doin’ Good in the Neighborhood would like to extend a sincere thank you to Roseann Hickman of Perfect Color Hair & Tan for allowing us to set up our lemonade stand benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on Saturday, June 7. Another big thanks to Michelle Kodak of The Cakery’s Bakery for the cupcakes that she donated to our stand, everyone enjoyed them. I would also like to thank Papa Jimmie’s, The Book Exchange, Ida Rupp Library and Ace Hardware for displaying our posters and fliers as well.

While we are very grateful to Roseann for allowing us to set up our stand at her salon again this year, I was very disappointed in “the powers that be” at City Hall by them refusing to allow me to set up the stand in front of The Cakery Bakery. At first, it appeared that it was a possibility, but when I had heard nothing from them a week later, I contacted Jenn at City Hall via email and she had to deliver the news that I would not be able to use the public right of way (the sidewalk).
