Ice yacht fans sail into Lake City

Lake Pepin experiencing similar problems as Chesapeake Bay
Diets are everywhere you look - from Atkins to South Beach and Nutrisystem to Weight Watchers. And now, diets are not just for people. The Chesapeake Bay has been on a "pollution diet" for years and it's time for Lake Pepin to take on the same routine. "If you put too much nitrogen,...
