  • Stranded kayakers rescued, charged with reckless operation - Cincinnati.com - April 11: Two kayakers were pulled to safety from the Great Miami River in St. Clair Township by Butler County authorities Friday. The rescued kayakers - Jeffrey Marcum, 27, and Christopher Marcum, 22 - escaped the dangerous river current with help from rescue officials, but could not escape the law... Two helicopters, a boat and a team of deputies that walked along the swollen river were needed to rescue the men, both of whom were treated for minor injuries, according to the release. Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones condemned the Marcums' decision to kayak in the heavy river currents, saying the situation was absolutely ridiculous. "The current in that river could have cost several lives to try to rescue two people that should have known better. I am all for rescuing those in need. That is why I have all these resources. I do not like putting my own people or anyone else in danger when something like this could have been prevented," Jones said.

  • Paddlers race 160 miles to Lake Michigan - Detroit Free Press (MI) - April 10: Not even the wind or a spattering of cold rain could dampen the spirits of the 85 people lined up for the start of a one-of-its-kind race along the Red Cedar and Grand rivers from Okemos to Lake Michigan. Over the next 2 1/2 days, they'll attempt to paddle 160 miles to Grand Haven, a trip that would normally take a week. The race is called Campus to Coast, and it's the biggest event of the year organized by the Michigan State University Outdoor Club. Now in its third year as an official, club-sanctioned event, Friday's start was the biggest yet with 44 teams, said event organizer Luke Rookus.
