Mystery Illness Solved

As many as 100 people could have E. Coli after visiting Put-in-Bay.  Monday the Ottawa County health department reported 94 calls from people complaining of serious flu like symptoms.  Health investigators haven't found a common link or source, but say two wineries on the edge of the island have well water that's tested positive for e. coli. The wave of illnesses comes at the height of tourist season on the South Bass Island, which sits just a few miles offshore on Lake Erie, between Toledo and Cleveland.
