MIDDLE BASS ISLAND, Ohio -- The state plans to spend $6 million to rehab the former Lonz Winery property, the site of a July 1, 2000 terrace collapse that killed one and injured 75.

Members of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources made the announcement today during a news conference in Marblehead. Other money - from a total pool of $88 million to be spent across the state - will be used for improvements at other Lake Erie-area state parks.

Open houses will be held this summer to solicit the public's input on the future of the Lonz Winery property at Middle Bass Island. The structure itself - an iconic, castle-like building - will not be demolished, officials said.
