The crisis may have eased in Toledo , but the toxic algae in Lake Erie that contaminated the water supply for 500,000 people in Ohio continues to plague lakes and rivers across the country, including here in Maryland. Lake Williston, a swimming hole for a Girl Scout camp in Caroline County, is off limits this summer because of  dangerous levels of a toxin in its water.  So is 75-acre Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park in Montgomery County.  Same for Northwest Creek, a 100-acre impoundment on Kent Island in Queen Anne's County.

Another accomplished young conductor, who is an old friend of Annapolis audiences.The orchestra selected Peter Bay, the Peabody Conservatory graduate who did such a commendable job as conductor of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra from 1985 to 1990.

ERIE, Pa. - Brian Conroe says he might vote for President Bush this fall. He sounds about as enthusiastic to do that as he would be to shovel the snow piling up on the sidewalk. A Republican, Conroe voted for Bush in 2000 but now has major complaints. For one, he contends, the United States had no business invading Iraq, an action he fears stoked anti-American disgust around the world. "The war in Iraq wasn't our fight - and now we've stepped on a lot of toes," he says. A 24-year-old factory machinist, Conroe says he would vote for Bush only by default, if no Democrat impresses him. "He's still young for a president," he says.

ERIE, Pa. - In the wooded meadows off Lake Erie, a Roman Catholic monastic community practices a 1,500-year-old spiritual way of life. The Benedictine Sisters of Erie gather to pray three times daily. They sing the Psalms. They feed the poor, train the illiterate. They live on donated clothes and a monthly stipend of $70 each. But the gentle rhythms of their ancient religious lifestyle recently exploded in a radical act of conscience: Risking expulsion, one of the sisters refused to obey a Vatican decree against attending a worldwide conference to promote women's ordination.

CLEVELAND - A night earlier, Orioles manager Dave Trembley kept Jim Johnson in the bullpen, rather than giving his most effective reliever the ball in the seventh inning after his team rallied to take a one-run lead. The Cleveland Indians scored three times off Rocky Cherry, leaving Trembley the subject of second-guessing. Last night, a similar situation arose, and it was Johnson on the mound. It also was the same frustrating result. Johnson pitched a scoreless seventh but allowed two go-ahead runs in the eighth as the Indians defeated the Orioles, 7-5, before an announced 21,143 at Progressive Field.

John Rogers will be the first to admit that he's had some money problems. Someone digging through the 43-year-old salesman's credit history would see some unpaid bills on his account, a bankruptcy from 15 years ago when his son needed life-saving surgery, and even an Internal Revenue Service lien that still lingers. "I've been working to improve it," said Rogers, who lives in Northeast Baltimore. "I'm able to go out and get loans and I'm no longer paying the 22 or 24 percent interest that I used to pay. I'm not the worst-credit person in the world and I'm not the best.

CLEVELAND -- They surf in Cleveland because they must. They surf with 2-inch icicles clinging to their wet suits, through stinging hail and overpowering wind and waves brown with human waste. They work nights to spend their winter days scouting surf. They are watermen on an inland sea. Given its industrial past, Cleveland largely turns its back to Lake Erie, lining the coast with power plants, a freeway and mounds of iron ore to feed its steel factories. The shore is especially deserted in winter, when strong winds and waves pummel the land.

LAKE CITY, PA. / / Erie Bluffs State Park is Pennsylvania's newest and the 117th in the state system. The still-wild tract 12 miles west of Erie and just east of the Ohio line is long on potential and short on amenities. There are no facilities, no trails, no toilets, no signs. There is a small unmarked parking lot off state Route 5, but that's just about it. The nature-based park -- it was dedicated by Gov. Edward G. Rendell in mid-2004 -- features the largest tract of undeveloped land on Lake Erie along Pennsylvania's 60 miles of shoreline.
