Coast Guard warns of debris in Lake Ontario

The U.S. Coast Guard is warning boaters on Lake Erie and Lake Ontario to be on the lookout for large logs and other debris washed into the waterways by recent heavy rains.

Coast Guard officials tell local media outlets in Buffalo and Rochester that the objects often float just below the surface of the water and can be difficult to spot.

The Coast Guard station at Buffalo says it has received calls from boaters in distress after striking logs and other debris along the shoreline of Lake Erie and the Niagara River.

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office believes that a 62-year-old Lockport woman found dead in her motor boat earlier this month was killed when she collided with a submerged object in Lake Ontario.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
