WTOL Editorial: Obama leaving us high and dry over Asian Carp

The Asian Carp are making their way to the Great Lakes, and the Obama Administration doesn't seem to care.

Experts believe this voracious and highly destructive fish is now within 25 miles of Lake Michigan. Once the Great Lakes are breached, the $7 billion commercial and sport fishing industry will be quickly and irrevocably impacted.

Last week, a federal judge turned down a plea from the five Great Lakes states to order the immediate closing of the shipping locks on Chicago-area waterways. The Obama Administration declared it was pleased with the ruling. Pleased! People, you need to be angry about this.

You can contact your Congressional representatives here. Let them know how strongly you feel about our precious waterways.

The Great Lakes remain one of the world's most magnificent wonders. Yet the Obama Administration seems to wonder what all the fuss is about -- which ought to make you wonder.

    The recent decision of ProMedica's Board of Trustees to enter into a transfer agreement with Capital Care Network, Toledo's last remaining abortion facility, just doesn't make sense.
