The Avon Lake fire and police departments hosted a mass casualty drill Aug. 7 at Avon Lake High School. The drill included neighboring safety services and emergency rooms. Students from the drama club and teachers volunteered as victims. The training scenario had an armed intruder in the high school that police had to search for and neutralize before they and paramedics could rescue victims from the building.

While taking pictures of the drill, they kept media at two observation posts to allow us access but keep us from getting in the way. On one hand, I wish they would have let me move around more for better pictures, but then again, I realize I wouldn’t have anywhere near this kind of access during an actual event.

Being when the drill began gave me a very strange feeling. I don’t know quite how to describe it. It was definitely eerie seeing something like this unfold, even if it was only a training session. After speaking to some of the other media and the first responders there, I found out I wasn’t alone feeling that way.

I’m always amazed by the different things I find at the Summer Market in Avon Lake every year. People can be so creative in the things they make or remake.

As always, the Avon Lake fireworks celebration was a lot of fun to shoot.

Girl Scout troops in Avon Lake helped clean up the beach at Miller Road Park last week. The picked up a lot of driftwood, trash, dead fish and other stuff cluttering the beach.

A new ice cream shop, Divine Scoops, recently opened in Avon Lake. I’m looking forward to going back for more pictures when they start making the ice cream themselves.

This level of HELL NO should ALWAYS be opt-in, not opt-out.

Opt-out here.

The default for *everything* should be opt-in, because there are just too many people who don’t know how to opt-out (or that they even have the option to do so).

How is this still up for debate?

Avon Lake had its first Chalk Fest over the weekend in the parking lot of the city pool. There were a handful of people coloring at any given time, from kids to art students to professionals. It was pretty cool to watch the progression from blank square into something, whether it was a bunch of squiggles or something recognizable.

Just some things from my dad’s basement. Thought I’d have some fun with the trains.

From a few weeks ago. Rags in a dryer at a laundromat started smoking, so the Avon Lake Fire Department came by to put it out.
