Examples of lakes in a Sentence

  1. Chris Hartline:

    Thirty years ago, Bill Nelson said he was going to fight to stop the poisoning of lakes and streams across Sunshine State and fix Lake Okeechobee, and he kept talking for 30 years, but nothing got done.

  2. Cassi Free:

    The CDC states online that gasoline-powered engines on boats, including onboard generators, produce carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless and odorless gas that can poison or kill someone who breathes too much of it. The generators on many boats vent toward the rear, meaning that someone sitting there can be put at risk for CO poisoning. Additionally, traveling at slow speeds or idling in the water can cause CO to build up in a boats cabin, cockpit, bridge, and aft deck, or in an open area. Wind from the aft section of the boat can increase this buildup of CO, per the CDC. Johnathan and Blake both required oxygen to bring down their CO levels. Blake has continued to have issues with memory and focus, while Johnathan has struggled with energy levels, Cassi said. CORONAVIRUS PEDIATRIC FATALITIES MOSTLY AMONG MINORITIES, THOSE WITH UNDERLYING CONDITIONS, CDC SAYS We thought it was due to the grief and had him in counseling, but we are now being told that grief may not be the only issue, Cassi said of her 15-year-old, noting that both boys are scheduled for MRIs and have a referral to begin sessions with a neuropsychiatrist to hopefully start a regimen that is supposed to help repair any damaged neurological connections. Moving forward has been hard for the Free family, with Cassi noting that she and Brett struggle daily. The joy has disappeared. Weve always been an active family, but we have little energy to do anything anymore. As I stand in these shoes, Ive realized that there are so many ways to notify people, other boaters, of the dangers, she said. The Free family had never heard of boats causing carbon monoxide poisoning before.  (Courtesy of Cassi Free) New boats may have less risk, but many new boats cost as much as a house. A Mastercraft X26 costs $165,000. So for those with a smaller budget, your risks can be exponentially higher, many, if not all, new boats have warnings stamped on them. Used boats do not. And people with new boats, those who are lucky enough to be privy to the few notifications that are made available, forget that a cared-for boat can last for decades- and that the lakes are full of boats that have the potential to backdraft lethal levels of CO into the back seating area.

  3. Martin Taylor:

    (New Zealanders) are extremely worried that they are losing their ability to swim, fish and gather food from their rivers, lakes and streams, people see those activities as their birthright, but over the last 20 years, that right is being lost because the level of pollution in waterways has increased as farming intensifies.

  4. Syd Kitson:

    Josh Day wife added : I think we’re pretty all in ! We live here. We work here. Babcock Ranch, near Fort Myers on state’s west coast, was developed from the beginning with a massive solar power farm generating 100 percent of the electric needs. About 350,000 photovoltaic solar panels stretch across a swath of land the size of 200 football fields. When developer Syd Kitson, a former NFL lineman with the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers, bought the 17,000-acre property, it was all old mining and farmland. Babcock Ranch, near Fort Myers on state’s west coast, was developed from the beginning with a massive solar power farm generating 100 percent of the electric needs. About 350,000 photovoltaic solar panels stretch across a swath of land the size of 200 football fields. It’s now the country’s first, fully solar city, with a very low carbon footprint, a soon-to-open school, electric shuttles that will eventually be driverless, a cute town square with shops and an emphasis on the environment and preservation. Where most developers would build and sell as many homes as possible, for greater profit, Kitson’s vision from the beginning was preserving most of the open space, now encompassing several lakes and 50 miles of bike trails. The homes run from $ 190,000 to about $ 499,000. Residents can work in the town, but are not required to do so. The fully completed footprint will eventually be 19,500 homes. We think about the way we develop differently …. It’s the most environmentally responsible, the most sustainable new town that’s ever been developed, and, it’s the first solar-powered town in America. And we’re very proud of that. In January, the first two people moved in. Now, there are 150 homes under contract with an expectation that will there will be 250 families moved in by December. Eight developers are now building homes. The vision is a unique creation of a 45,000-person small city. But first came the enormous solar farm. Syd Kitson gave the land to Florida Power Light for free, which then spent more than $ 100,000,000 installing all the panels, wires and storage batteries. That solar-generated power now is shared throughout FPL’s grid, as Babcock Ranch’s demand, at this point, remains very small. John Woolschlager, an urban planningprofessor at nearby Florida Gulf Coast University, said all cities canultimately follow Babcock Ranch’s model, but Florida Gulf Coast University will take years. Babcock Ranch’s huge advantage was that Babcock Ranch huge advantage’s being built from scratch with theself-sustainability and pro-environment philosophy on the ground first.
