Plan for Port Clinton Let’s Talk…
BY JOHN SCHAFFNER Tuesday night’s Port Clinton City Council meeting might turn out to be a turning point in the future of the City and its central business district. Councilman Mike Snider, after getting a positive report on the Economic Impact of the Washington Properties proposal, made the decision to put a motion on the floor to authorize the City Administration to move forward with negotiations on the plan outlined at a special Council meeting last Thursday. Snider’s motion went something like this: “I move that this Council restate to the Administration our strong desire to move Port Clinton forward and ask that Mayor Leone and his negotiating team give the utmost focus and attention to working with Washington Properties Inc. to discuss, organize and present a plan of implementation for development of the 14+/- acres of commercially zoned land offered by the City of Port Clinton for said purpose. Additionally, and in accordance with Ohio statute, this plan should be presented to City Council for consideration and further action within the earliest possible timeframe allowed by the parties involved.” Snider added that he expected a 6-0 vote in support of the motion with only the voice of Councilman Gabe Below absent. Below was out of town at the time of the motion. Prior to the vote, City Council heard from Hans Rosebrock, an economic specialist for First Energy Corp., on the economic impact the project proposed would have on the community. Number one would be taxes, over $6 million in property taxes, nearly $700,000 in local sales taxes, another $700,000 in income taxes and
over $143,000 in bed taxes split equally by the City and County. (Note: the old Jet Express Parking Lot was generating over $300,000 annually to the city when Putin-Bay Boat Lines moved operations to the old Portage Entry Marine building and transformed the old Port Clinton Lumber Company into a parking lot.) The total value of the economic impact of the project is estimated at $149 million. Over 700 new jobs would be supported within the area by the project with a projected annual payroll of nearly $50 million. Overall, it is estimated that a total of 585 new jobs would be created with a new direct payroll amount of $11 million. Rosebrock used a specialized software program to run the numbers measuring the economic impacts of a business or project on an area or region from a direct, indirect or induced impact. The program quantifies fiscal impacts on local and state governments and identifies business linkages or interrelationships. He noted that the estimates were put together based on phasing in the $60 million investment and the job creation factors over a five year period. Assumptions were then made about the number of hours new employees would work, the nature of the jobs (retail , service, restaurant) and the hourly pay. The assumptions were made based on research done in partnership with the Visitor’s Bureau, FirstEnergy, Applied Economics (FirstEnergy’s economic impact analysis partner) and the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation. Bottom Line: the proposed plan for commercial development at Waterworks Park would mean a $60 million investment by Washington Properties and would create upwards of 700 new jobs, not to mention a ton of new tax revenues to the City and to Ottawa County and an economic windfall for the Port Clinton City School District.
Meeting held with Washington Properties BY JASMINE CUPP “The renovation and development of Port Clinton are hot topics for the city of Port Clinton,” said Mayor Leone as the Thursday, March 6, special meeting of Port Clinton City Council was starting. “Due to input from the community, the rendering (of the plan) has changed.” Washington Properties was there to show Council and those in attendance at the meeting the re-designed plans. Craig Trick of Port Clinton, who is working with Washington Properties, gave the presentation. “It’s an exciting time to be a resident and even more exciting for the leaders because they are an important part of furthering the future of Port Clinton,” said Trick. The objective given by Washington Properties for the project states its purpose is to capitalize on the rich heritage and natural resources of Port Clinton, ultimately restoring pride in the community and creating a regional hub which will bring people to the area year round. The presentation then showed the before and the projected after plans of three downtown buildings-the Hersberger building on Madison Street, the empty building on the corner of Madison and East Second
INSIDE RECORDS 2A
Street and the Loof building on Madison Street. “The bones are there,” said Trick, “we just need to make it happen.” Next, Trick showed the projected plan for Waterworks Park which Washington Properties is calling The Harborfront at Port Clinton. The Harborfront at Port Clinton has a lodge, store fronts, residential space above the store fronts, a boardwalk, viewing platforms, dockage, an amphitheatre and more green space than the original plan that Washington Properties showed Council and residents at previous meetings. When talking about the Harborfront plan, Trick invited Mike Rose to come up and help explain the new design. The lodge planned for the Harborfront is modeled after Victory Hotel on South Bass Island, capturing a piece of our area’s history. Lodge amenities would include a banquet hall, conference rooms, studio to three bedroom units, pool, spa, fitness center, restaurants and more. All the areas of the projected Harborfront plan would be accessible to the public.

ducted into the Ohio Kiwanis Hall of Fame this past weekend in Columbus. Vee was President of the Port Clinton Kiwanis Club from 1999-2000 and became very involved with the activities of the Ohio District of Kiwanis International. She was elected State Treasurer several years ago, and still serves on many boards at the Ohio District level. I followed Vee as President of the local Kiwanis Club, and I remember saying at the time that her heart bled “blue and gold”, the official Kiwanis colors. I heard that Dave Franck, owner of Tri-Motors in Oak Harbor, was in a very bad snowmobiling accident on Sunday afternoon and was Life Flighted to St. Vincent Hospital in Toledo. I spoke with Steve Bast at the dealership Tuesday and he told me that Dave is recovering and should be out of the hospital by the end of the week. It was rumored that he broke some vertebrae in his neck, but that proved to be from an old injury, but a couple of broken ribs and other scrapes are still pretty bad. We wish him a full recovery. A Past Commodore of Port Clinton Yacht Club, Ted Mason, passed away last Saturday. His funeral will be this coming Saturday, March 15. I believe that in the dictionary next to the term “nice guy” there is a picture of Ted Mason. He was a gem. Our “Find Wylie” winner this week is Angela Behring, who was one of 198 people who found our friendly fish in the ad for Common Grounds on page 8A in last week’s Beacon. Angela wins our weekly $20 gift card from Friendship Food Stores. We’ll be hiding Wylie again this week, so if you find him, drop off an entry form at our office in the Beacon Place Business Center or click on the Find Wylie Icon at our website, www.thebeacon. net. The Ida Rupp Public Library is losing its Librarian. Debbie Loiacono, who lives in Westlake, found a Librarian position closer to home. So the Executive Board of Ida Rupp is inviting members of the community to visit the library this Friday, March 14, from 2-4 p.m. to say goodbye to Debbie. She did some great things while she was here the past few years. The American Red Cross Bloodmobile is in Marblehead today (Thursday, March 13) at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 541 S. Church Rd. from 12 Noon to 5 p.m. Walk-ins are always welcome. Go give the gift of life to a total stranger. Today (Thursday, March 13), they are having a very special “Soup’s On” program at Otterbein North Shore Retirement Community. Their Chef, Ron LaPointe, is hosting a cooking class to demonstrate how he creates the wonderful soups he serves there. The Ottawa County Genealogical Society will meet this Tuesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. at Ida Rupp Public Library in Port Clinton. The speaker will be Henry Timman, professional genealogist and Huron County historian. His program will be “Finding Maiden Names”. Guests are always welcome. The Port Clinton High School Leadership Council is hosting the Ohio Association of Student Councils State Conference from April 24 to 26. They are looking for community help in housing the 500 to 800 students who will be in attendance that weekend. What’s involved? First select the number of students you can house (they don’t need beds, just floor space for sleeping bags). They will need transportation to and from PCHS. They will need a good breakfast on Friday and Saturday mornings. Forms are available at the High School. For more information, call 419-734-2147. This is obviously a big endeavor and your help is very much needed and appreciated. Don’t forget the Port Clinton Knights of Columbus weekly Lenten Fish Fries each Friday during the Lent from 5-7:30 p.m. This year, the Knights are offering a new menu featuring ALL YOU CAN EAT meals for $8 for adults and $4 for children under 12. I am told it was a big hit last Friday. The menu features hand breaded fish, French fries, coleslaw, mac & cheese, applesauce, lemonade, coffee and a variety of desserts, all included in the ALL YOU CAN EAT price. The meals will be served at the Denny Bergeman K of C Hall at 109 E. Perry Street in downtown Port Clinton. The St. Joseph/Marblehead Knights of Columbus will serve Perch & Pierogis on the following Fridays during Lent: March 14 and 28 and April 11 from 5-7 p.m. in the St Joseph Church Hall located at 822 Barclay St. in Marblehead. Dinners are $11 and sandwiches are $6. Sides will be available as well. Our crowds are getting bigger for “Coffee with the Editor” sessions at Common Grounds every Wednesday at 9 a.m. Lot’s of interesting local topics are discussed. It is our opportunity to have a sit-down with our readers and learn about what YOU want to see in The Beacon as we enter our 32nd year of community publishing. Also don’t forget that Common Grounds offers their gourmet coffee for just 99-cents with one refill. Monday is St. Patrick’s Day so proudly wear your green on Monday. For the past decade or so, Beacon editor-at-large Donna Lueke has penned an Irish-themed verse or story to celebrate the day when we are all Irish. She does this to honor the memory of her Canadian-Irish poet Mother, Margery Alberta Welsh Lueke. This year, Donna compiled the writings and a selection of photos from her 1990 trip to Ireland in a book titled “Blarney and Blessings”. The book is available for $15 at the Ex Libris Bookshop, 110 Main Street in Marblehead; Twisted Sisters Gallery 318 W. Main St.; Unique Antique Jewelry & Gifts, 206 Madison St. in Port Clinton; and at The Beacon office in the Beacon Place Business Center next to Goodwill. Erin Go Braugh!

Arianna String Quartet at Firelands The Musical Arts Series at Firelands will host the Arianna String Quartet in a performance on March 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Firelands Presbyterian Church, 2626 E. Harbor Rd., Port Clinton. Their chamber music concert will include selections from Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Van Wyck. Hailed for their outstanding musicianship, the Arianna String Quartet has firmly established itself as one of America’s finest chamber ensembles. Their performances have been praised for “tonal warmth, fastidious balance...expressive vitality” (Chicago Tribune) and “emotional commitment and fluent virtuosity,” (Pretoria News, South Africa). Formed in 1992, the ASQ garnered national attention by winning the Grand Prize in the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, First Prize in both the Coleman and Carmel Chamber Music
Competitions, and were Laureates in the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition. The Arianna Quartet has appeared throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia, with frequent visits to Brazil and South Africa. They have collaborated with many of the world’s finest musicians, including members of the Vermeer, Tokyo, Cleveland and Juilliard Quartets, and their live performances have been heard on National Public Radio. This concert is sponsored by Arby’s and Neidecker, LeVeck and Crosser. Accommodations are provided by Our Guest Inn. Following the performance, the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council will host a reception for the audience to meet the musicians. Tickets are available at the door for $15. Students are admitted free.
WASHINGTON PROPERTIES from COVER
A Sense of Community.
Trick and Rose explained the project as a redevelopment artery. “One building is renovated at a time and the renovations become contagious,” said Trick. The presentation then addressed the questions: “Why Washington Properties? Why Port Clinton?” Answer: “For the revitalization of downtown Port Clinton and the development and enhancement of the waterfront.” “The utilization of the Waterworks Park area right now is not perfect,” said Trick. The key to success for the project, according to Washington Properties, is an investment in both the existing downtown and the existing waterfront. Washington Properties remains committed to both. Washington Properties anticipates beginning renovations and development in Port Clinton in the spring of 2015. “This is a lot of information for the council,” said Mayor Leone. “There is a lot to digest. I appreciate that a lot of consideration of the public and Council’s opinions went into the new plan. It screams nothing
but character that defines our downtown.” The room and hallway of Council chambers were full of young to seasoned residents. Two high school students in attendance, Gabe DeFreitas and Ty Gallogly, wanted to hear the plans to report back to their government class because they are required to attend a public function for school. “Why not attend the all-star of all meetings?” said Gabe DeFreitas. DeFreitas and Gallogly plan on leaving Port Clinton after graduating to attend college. They are like many young people in the area, a product of the great school systems who then leave town after graduating. Would they come back if there was something to come back for? “I want to come back here if there’s employment here,” said Ty Gallogly. “It’s hard to picture Port Clinton different than it is now, but it’s great to hear the possibilities.” More about the meeting, including figures and renderings, can be found at www.thebeacon.net.

First boat launch of the 2014 season
The Lighthouse Center
The first boat launch of the season was made last Friday at the Catawba Moorings on Catawba Island. Marina owner Rockey Piacentino says it’s a ritual to put the classic Pacemaker “Emerald” in the water the first week of March. Emerald owner Captain Dick Sisson of Sandusky says, “A boat’s place is in the water.” His is no doubt the first one to go in this year. Because the marina is still solid ice, the launch area first had to be cleared of ice. When Sisson was asked if seeing his boat in the water made him happy, he replied, “Yes, now I’m happy.” The 78 year-old Captain predicts the ice will leave sooner than some expect. As soon as it does, he will head his boat to Middle Bass Island Yacht Club to commission the club house and docks for the coming season, another spring ritual.

Trout fishing opportunities at Castalia Hatchery The Castalia Fish Hatchery in Erie County will open a half-mile section of Cold Creek for controlled trout fishing events. This opportunity is limited to a designated number of anglers and will held during select dates during the 2014 fishing season, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Controlled trout fishing is offered by the ODNR Division of Wildlife at the Castalia State Fish Hatchery from May 5-Nov. 28. No weekend or holiday fishing is available. The trout stocked in Cold Creek measure between 10-12 inches. Most of the fish are rainbow trout, although brown trout are available. Anglers interested must apply online March 1-31 and pay a non-refundable $3 application fee in order to be eligible for a random drawing. Only one application is allowed per person. Anglers 16 and older can fish from May 5-June 13 and from Aug. 18-Nov. 28. A second season will be held for those 15 and younger from June 16Aug. 15. Youth sessions are 7-11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m-3:30 p.m., and successful applicants will be assigned a session. Adult sessions are 7 a.m.-12 p.m. Individuals selected to participate can bring two adults 16 and older and three youths 15 and younger (no more than six people total). Random drawings for permit selection will be held in April. The results of the drawing will be posted at www. wildohio.com. Special fishing rules will be in effect to ensure a qual-
ity fishing experience. This includes a no-catch-and-release rule; anglers keep all the fish they catch. The daily bag limit is five trout per angler. Anglers are required to check in at the hatchery upon arrival and check out at the end of the session. An Ohio resident annual fishing license costs $19 a day; a one-day fishing license costs $11. Those who purchase a one-day fishing license may later return it to a license agent to receive credit toward purchase of an annual fishing license. Sales of fishing licenses along with the Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) program continue to fund the operation of the ODNR Division of Wildlife’s fish hatcheries. No state tax dollars are used for this activity. This is a userpay, user-benefit program. The SFR is a partnership between federal and state government, industry and anglers/boaters. When anglers purchase rods, reels, fishing tackle, fish finders and motor boat fuel, they pay an excise tax. The federal government collects these taxes, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers and disburses these funds to state fish and wildlife agencies. These funds are used to acquire habitat, produce and stock fish, conduct research and surveys, provide aquatic education to youth and to obtain and develop boat accesses. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at www.ohiodnr.gov.

Mrs. Scott, kissing the pig held by Ben Genzman, student at Oak Harbor High School.
Oak Harbor teachers and administrators kiss a pig Oak Harbor teachers and administrators kissed a pig to raise awareness and funds for those needing organ transplants. The event took place on Friday, Feb. 28, during two separate assemblies. Both the high school and middle school participated in the swine kissing. The kiss-a-pig contest was sponsored by the Penta Career Center, Oak Harbor DECA Chapter. Students at each school donated money in the name of their favorite teacher or administrator. The top five winners at each school had to pucker up to kiss the pig. The money will be donated to COTA, The Children’s Organ Transplant Association, in the name of 2 year-old Camille Osborn, who needs funds for transplant related expenses. Camille and her family are from the Oak Harbor area. Her grandmother, Beth O’Shea, was a former employee at the middle school. Bryce Rubie, an Oak Harbor High School graduate, was a special guest and spoke to the students about his experience. He was in need of his second kidney transplant and recently found a match. Bryce will get his kidney later this year at the University of Michigan. He is the inspiration for the DECA members to help Camille. “It’s very important because there are so many young kids and adults that need a transplant. They don’t like being on dialysis like me for so long,” Bryce said. This event is part of a DECA community service project titled “Be Someone’s Miracle” which was developed to promote the need for organ donors as well as to raise funds to benefit Camille. Over $1900 has been raised so far and the chapter will continue to support the cause. For questions or to make a donation, contact project leaders Ben Cochran, Dillon Pollard or Bryce Buderer at 419-898-6216, Ext. 351.

Thursday, March 13, 2014 SPORTS www.thebeacon.net Kontak named District Co-Coach BY YANEEK SMITH sports writers all over northwest Ohio. “It’s a great honor,” Kontak said. “For Andrea, too. It’s recognition for our program from a lot of reporters in the area who saw a lot of games from the area teams. (Our district) covers a lot of area.” That area was home to several fine clubs this year like Archbold and Liberty-Benton, both of whom advanced to regionals, as well as other good teams like Elmwood, Genoa, Ottawa Hills and Rossford. “This (award) is about the respect that our program has garnered throughout northwest Ohio,” Kontak said. “I think that’s because we win, we win a lot and we do it in a firstclass manner. We’re not going to back down, but we’ll be respectful (towards our opponents).” Kontak credited his players for their work ethic and success this season, a group that included Cecil, seniors Amanda Hetrick and Nikki Weis, Emma Barney, Maddy Rathbun and Athena Eli, Allie Kuhn, Brandy Lochotzki, Oliva Rollins, Alexa Weis and Emma Bergman. He also credited the players’ families for allowing him to do his job. “I appreciate the families that are supportive of me teaching their daughters,” Kontak said. “They trust me to teach their daughters about the game and some life lessons.” Kontak also spoke about his band of assistants, a group that’s included Art Eli, Chris Rawski, Ralph Mills, Mark Boukissen and John Kontak, his son. “We’re all very close,” Kontak said. “Our families all know each other. Art and I were together at Genoa. He’s the most loyal person I’ve ever met. He sent his kids to

Oak Harbor (after I got the job here). Chris is like a consultant for us. We teach across the hall from each other (at Genoa) and have coached softball and basketball together. We’re like brothers. It’s like a big brother-little brother relationship. And Mark and Ralph bring a calm, a sense of community to the team. “You’re only as good as the people around you.” When Kontak and Rawski coached softball at Genoa, the Comets went a combined 167-52 (.763), won a couple of Suburban Lakes League titles, seven sectional crowns and advanced to the Div. III Final Four in ’06. “We spend a lot of time together,” Kontak said of him and assistants. “We game plan together, we each have our role. Art looks at the other team and makes our ingame adjustments. Mark and Ralph listen to the girls and talk to them and get a feel for the game. And they work well with our younger girls. You put that together and you’ve got a well-rounded staff.” As you might expect, Cecil was happy for her coach. “He deserves (the award),” she said. “(Coach Kontak) works so hard. We can see when he’s been thinking about about what to do for a game.” Cecil also talked about what makes Kontak such a good coach. “Every single drill we do, it’s in a gamelike situation,” she said. “They all have a purpose.” “We work on the little things,” Hetrick said. “It’s about making sure everything is done how it’s supposed to be done.”

After leading the Oak Harbor Rockets to a 20-5 record, a spot in the Division III District Finals and a second-place finish in the Sandusky Bay Conference, Tom Kontak was named the Associated Press District 7 Co-Coach of the Year. Kontak, who shared the honor with Liberty-Benton’s Nate Irwin, was joined on the All-District Team with his top player, sophomore forward Andrea Cecil. Cecil, who averaged 19.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, helped lead Oak Harbor to the district finals, where they fell in heartbreaking fashion, 40-37, on a buzzerbeater to Bucyrus Wynford. Port Clinton forward Tiffany Colston, with a per-game average of 13.5 points and 8 rebounds, also earned first-team honors at the Div. II level. Colston helped lead the Redskins to an 18-5 record and a second-place finish in the SBC. In her final two years, Port Clinton went 39-9, won a sectional title and twice finished second in the league. Both Colston and Cecil earned firstteam SBC honors as well. “It’s exciting (to receive the honor),” Cecil said. “I was the only sophomore with (a group of) seniors. It’s exciting that people think of me like that.” The award is a special honor for Kontak, who has a career record of 127-57 (.690), including 36-13 (.735) with the Rockets. In his eight years, Kontak’s teams have won five sectional titles and advanced to the district final four times, falling excruciatingly close in each of the last three tries. He was named the Coach of the Year in 2009 by his fellow coaches, but this time the honor was bestowed upon him by

Bolte Real Estate announces Team Dunlap Bolte Real Estate is proud to announce the teaming of two of its professionally trained real estate agents, Nancy J. Dunlap and Jeanne Sutton. Both agents bring extensive knowledge from their diverse background in the real estate industry. Jeanne Sutton is a licensed real estate agent who sold real estate in the Port Clinton, Catawba and Marblehead areas for a number of years before joining Martin Appraisal Service in Toledo as a licensed/certified Residential Appraiser. She appraised homes in Northwest Ohio, primarily in Ottawa and Sandusky Counties, eventually forming her own appraisal company,
Sutton Appraisal Service. After 15 years as an appraiser, she left appraisal and became active in real estate again as both a listing and selling agent. In addition to her real estate activites, Sutton was also a member of the Adjunct Faculty at Hondros College, teaching real estate pre-licensing and continuing education classes for a number of years. She is also a member of the Firelands Board of Realtors and the Ohio Association of Realtors. Jeanne believes she brings the Dunlap Team the benefit of her appraisal experience and market knowledge.
Nancy is a versatile real estate agent and broker who previously owned her own real estate company on Catawba for many years. During that time she was among the real estate leaders in Ottawa County for sales and listing volume and was the recipient of many Ohio Association of Realtors awards. As a mem-
ber of the Firelands Board of Realtors, she was nominated to serve as President of the Board, and has been a team leader on numerous committees representing the members of the Board. Through her hard work and dedication she has achieved the real estate designations of Certified Business Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist and Graduate Realtor Institute. She has been a member of the Bolte family of realtors since 1998 and continues to work for her clients in finding the right fit for buyers and the best price for sellers.
Contact Nancy Dunlap at 419-341-0043 and Jeanne Sutton at 419-261-0892 or reach them online at www.nancydunlap.com or www.bolterealty.com.

Ottawa county customers see David’s abilities David Salyers is the Service Clerk from Community Markets that is on posters and billboards throughout Ottawa County with the logo “Ability @ Work”. David, a resident of Ottawa County, has worked for the Oak Harbor Community Markets store for the past 15 years. Recently David and Lester Weatherwax, Supervisor and Store Manager of Community Markets, discussed what is behind that great smile David flashed for the billboards. David shared that he previously worked in the fast food business for 8-9 years before being hired at the grocery store. He remembers the day he was hired vividly and how his soon to be boss went to
David knows many of his customers by their first name and shared that serving the community is his favorite part of the job. Lester commented that the customers feel the same about David, as he is always the one that gets the most cookies at Christmas time. David and Lester have worked together for many years, as Lester has worked at the store for 32 years. During their time on the job together, Lester said he couldn’t ask for a better employee. David always is at the store before his official start time and over the last 15 years Lester said he can’t even count on one hand how many times David has called off. He also com-
Baumann celebrates renovation Over the past year, extensive improvements have been made at the Baumann General Motors auto dealership on State Route 53. Last Thursday, March 6, Baumann’s celebrated the completion of those improvements by hosting a Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours. They then held a special ribbon cutting ceremony, with Chuck Miller, their General Manager, doing the honors.
Lester Weatherwax and David Salyers
Riverview Industries Inc. (now RVI Inc.) to interview another gentleman before his interview. David explains that he went in for his interview and was hired on the spot. He began his job at the grocery store by learning multiple tasks including cleaning, stocking and bagging groceries. Over the years, David has seen many changes including the store name, a new supervisor, different co-workers and a revision of the layout of the store. Although things have changed, one thing has remained the same is the customers.
mented that David is the only employee that has never had an error on his time card, as he punches in and out when he is supposed to, including lunches. Lester stated that David is always willing to work whatever schedule is needed and will stay late if you ask him. David and Lester have also both competed in the annual baggers contest which takes place at the local level at Community Markets every July. The local competition is done during regular business hours and the public can stop in to watch as baggers from the store compete to go to State. The State level competition is held at the Ohio State Fair. Those successful at State advance to the National Groceries Association contest which is held in Las Vegas. There is a lot to keep in mind for the competitors as they must focus not only on
speed, but weight, neatness, friendliness and overall service. David has entered the competition and has won at the local level. Outside of working at Community Markets, David and Lester also team-up together in the community. Each year the store has a float in the Oak Harbor Apple Festival parade. Last year’s float was a 50’s theme and David dressed as a character from “Grease”, complete with sunglasses and slicked back hair. They won third place. David has also participated in bell ringing for the Salvation Army, delivering food for the Holiday Bureau and helping with the Food Pantry. When he delivers for the Holiday Bureau David sports his Santa hat to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. Next time you are in the Oak Harbor Community Markets store be sure to stop by and say hello to David and pick up a sample of free popcorn. David is known as the “Popcorn King” as he makes the best popcorn. March is Developmental Disabilities Month. Take a minute to recognize the hard working people with disabilities, like David.
