Tell Tales

Gone too soon ■■ We were so sad to learn of the untimely passing of Laura Young from Catawba. She was only 28, but had accomplished so much in her short life. After graduating from Port Clinton High School, she earned an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. While there, she excelled academically and was at the top of her graduating class. She was also an accomplished racing sailor having participated in a number of national events representing Port Clinton Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing Program. ■■ We are also sad to learn of the passing of Jeff “D.J. Jeff” Below. He was an extremely talented young man. Also, no doubt you heard about the passing of Julie Quayle, a retired teacher who was an outstanding Language Arts teacher at the Port Clinton Middle School. Former principal Dale Vanlerberghe used to brag on her a lot. All of these accomplished folks will be sorely missed. ■■ Our “Find Wylie” winner this week is Neil Wilson of Oak Harbor who was one of 216 people who found our friendly fish in the ad for Cleats Club Seat Grille on page 10A in last week’s Beacon. Neil 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

First Annual Bird Ohio Day celebrated May 10 BY JASMINE CUPP On Saturday, May 10, the trail head of the boardwalk at Magee Marsh was even busier than usual for the Biggest Week in American Birding. Senator Randy Gardner, Representative Chris Redfern, and representatives from the offices of Senator Sherrod Brown and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur made remarks regarding the first annual Bird Ohio Day. The following letter from Governor Kasich was also part of the ceremony:

The proclamation:

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the senate of the 130th General Assembly of the State of Ohio, the House of Representatives concurring herein, that we designate the second Saturday of May as Bird Ohio Day in the State of Ohio and, during the month of May: encourage school districts, schools, teachers, and nature educators in this State to offer lessons and activities to teach students and citizens about birds, bird habitat and the conservation of same; the citizens of and visitors to Ohio to spend time outdoors enjoying the sights and sounds of birds and sharing that experience with the young people of Ohio; and all citizens of Ohio to be engaged stewards of the wildlife habitat that migratory and resident birds depend on for their survival. The resolution was initiated and drafted by Black Swamp

Bird Observatory and sponsored by Senator Randy Gardner. “The passage of the Bird Ohio Day resolution is a milestone for birding, habitat conservation and economic development. This resolution and the celebration of Bird Ohio Day each year will do much to raise awareness of the importance of birding to the economy. It will also highlight the value of conserving the habitat that this economic engine is built upon,” said Executive Director of Black Swamp Bird Observatory Kim Kaufman. Kaufman also offered thanks to Senator Gardner for his tremendous support. “We are incredibly honored that Senator Gardner was willing to sponsor the resolution, and we offer our sincere appreciation to him and to his wonderful and supportive staff for helping to make our vision for Bird Ohio Day a reality.” The Biggest Week in American Birding is growing each year. “Close to 70,000 people have been through Magee Marsh to observe the bird migration this year,” said Kaufman. “We’ve even had someone from as far away as Israel travel to the event.” Next year, the Biggest Week in American Birding is May 8-17. Kaufman said there are already people registering for the event. Visit to see reader-submitted bird photos.

■■ We here at The Beacon have always struggled with the notion of carrying crossword puzzles and word games in our weekly newspaper. I have personally resisted it because I would not want to have to drop an important local news item to accommodate space for such recreation. I do, however, recognize the popularity of these games. So, when you send us your email address, let us know online if you would like us to add word games to our weekly copy of The Beacon. ■■ We are so honored to have a living legend among us. Lt. Col. Harold Brown, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen from World War II. Bassett’s is a sponsor of the traveling Tuskegee Airmen exhibit titled “Rise Above” which will be at the Airport all weekend long through May 17. Don’t miss it. ■■ The Marblehead Peninsula Chamber of Commerce will hold their 77th Annual Banquet at Catawba Island Club Tonight, (Thursday, May 15). Social hour begins at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. They will be presenting their traditional awards that evening.

Port Clinton’s brain gain: Dina Rodgers of Lilly and Gerts BY JASMINE CUPP Editor’s note: First in a series, The Beacon is showcasing businesses of Port Clinton graduates that moved away, saw the country and world, and decided to come back to Port Clinton to start their business. People may talk about a “brain drain”, but we want to showcase Port Clinton’s “brain gain”. Many of these graduates and business owners came back to start a business and raise their families. That is the case with Dina Rodgers. Dina Rodgers, owner and operator of Lilly and Gerts, is a 1990 Port Clinton High School graduate. “When my husband retired from the Marines, we had lived in lots of places from Maine to Florida,” said Rodgers. “I knew if I was going to raise my family somewhere, it had to be Port Clinton.” Even after traveling and visiting so many places in the United States, Rodgers knew Port Clinton was still home. “It’s always been a dream of mine to own my own store. I have always been crafty. I wanted the independence and freedom to be there for my daughters who are 9 and 7; I want to be able to raise them and have a career. Life’s too short to not be happy and follow your dreams.”

■■ National Safe Boating Week starts this Saturday, May 17, and runs until next Friday, May 23. This is a good opportunity for the boaters in our area to give their boats a good, comprehensive safety check. Tomorrow, May 16, is “Wear your Life Jacket to Work Day”. We are just a couple of weeks from that terrible boating accident that took 4 lives. That should be incentive enough. ■■ The Firelands Musical Arts Series continues this Saturday, May 17, with the “Sixth Edition” vocal and instrumental jazz show. Tickets are $15 at the door, students are free. The show will be held at Firelands Presbyterian Church, 2626 E. Harbor Rd. (SR 163) just east of Port Clinton. Dina Rodgers of Lilly and Gerts

■■ Thank Goodness for Grandparents! That is a new program being put on by the folks at Oak Harbor High School to offer support and information to adults raising grandchildren, nieces, nephews or other related children. Their next sessions will be on May 22 at 10 a.m. and again at 6 p.m. in the Oak Harbor theatre lobby to talk about available services that can offer support when children are visiting with biological parents. They will also discuss plans for their summer sessions. Childcare during the sessions will be provided if you RSVP by May 19. Call Judy Peters, Director of Student Services, at 419-898-3280 or text your name and session choice to Sara Stahl at 419-341-6535.

Inspired by her grandmother, Lillian, and great-grandmother, Gertrude, Rodgers opened Lilly and Gerts. Lilly and Gerts specializes in reclaiming and repurposing vintage items for the home. There is also handmade items and jewelry in the shop. Formerly located on Jefferson Street, they now reside at 122 West Second Street because they needed a bigger location. “This is my hometown and I wanted to do something to add to our community. I want to raise my kids here and I want to give back to my community any way I can. People say there’s nothing in Port Clinton for people, but there is. You have to want to find it,” said Rodgers. “My family encouraged me that you can do anything you put your mind to and I encourage my girls and everyone else to live by the same philosophy.”

Krupps celebrate 50 years of marriage

Sound Off Thanks for the After Prom

Thomas J. & Barbara K. (Harger) Krupp residing at 536 E. 9th St., Port Clinton, celebrated their 50th anniversary on May 9. They were married at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Marblehead by Father Blanc on May 9, 1964. Mr. & Mrs. Krupp have 5 children – Mike Krupp (Amy - Port Clinton), Kim Rider (Von - Port Clinton), Kathi Peto (Steve - Port Clinton), Jen Zelms (Mike - Marblehead) and Suzi Chrysler (Dane Urge - Put-in-Bay). They also have 9 grandchildren - Brady Krupp, Becca and Brock Rider, Amber and Alyssa Peto, Taylor, Abby & Andy Zelms and Tom Chrysler. Thomas is retired but is a volunteer firefighter for the City of Port Clinton and Barbara is employed by State Farm Insurance in Oak Harbor. They celebrated with a dinner with their children and grandchildren. A party over the summer is being planned in order to celebrate with many friends and relatives.

Sound Off Meeting Mr. Rose Last week a friend of mine, Grant McCallum, a small business owner from Marblehead, and I took the time to travel to Medina to meet personally with Mr. Mike Rose of Washington Properties. It is our opinion that Mr. Rose is one of the most professional and accomplished businessman we’ve ever met. Also, I found him to be one of the most pleasant and fair-minded businessmen that I’ve ever met in my fifty plus years of being in business. Micropolitan Cities, as Mr. Rose describes them, are cities with less than 50,000 citizens. Medina and Wooster are considered Micropolitan Cities and have experienced significant improvement in their standards of living and also in attracting both small and large new businesses as a result of the vision, commitment and efforts put forth by the Washington Properties team. Mr. Rose believes in Port Clinton. He is willing to risk his own reputation and capital in an effort to create an environment that could bring the same results to our Micropolitan area. Mr. McCallum, who was a resident and business owner in the Medina area for 27 years, can attest to the revitalization of the town of Medina that Mike Rose was so instrumental in accomplishing. Prior to Mr. Rose’s involvement it reminded Mr. McCallum of Port Clinton’s business district. Overall, the project, known as Harbor Front, is projected to be a $60,000,000+ project. No small commitment by any standard. Washington Properties, aka Mr. Rose, is prepared to provide not only vision for us, as he did for Medina and Wooster (go and see it for yourself), but he is also willing to risk a great deal to see it all through for us. My friend and I were completely satisfied with the answers Mr. Rose gave to all of our questions. Thus, I encourage each one who is still in doubt to go and see for yourself what has taken place in towns like Wooster and Medina. Then, ask 19 Park Drive, VFW Memorial Park yourself if that kind of future could be VFW Post 2480 Tickets on sale untill May 10th at possible, with Wash214 Madison St. ington Properties VFW, $10.00 per person. help and money, for (Downtown all of Port Clinton. $20.00 after May 10th.

Lakeside Chautauqua’s Spring Cleanup Day a true community effort Lakeside Chautauqua welcomed springtime’s beautiful weather and returning families on April 26 for the ninth Annual Spring Cleanup Day. More than 65 volunteers of all ages dedicated their time and efforts to help beautify Lakeside. Volunteers completed a variety of Lakeside improvement projects, including: gardening throughout the campus and Herb Garden; upkeep at Chautauqua Park, miniature golf course, Grindley Playground, lakefront and nature/walking trail; cleaning at Hoover Auditorium and Bradley Temple; preparation of the gates and Welcome Center; and other cleanup projects around the Administration Office. Lakeside would like to thank the many volunteers who dedicated more than 260 hours to make Spring Cleanup Day a success. View pictures of this annual event on the Lakeside Chautauqua Facebook page at

When I was walking by the field left after the old middle school was removed, I was struck by how suited it would be for a community garden. Not only to sell produce but to supply fresh food to the food banks. It would need a good organization to organize, but I think there would be plenty of volunteers to work in it. I would give a few hours a week, others would too. Phoebe Borman Port Clinton

Oak Harbor clean-up thanks The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Village Wide Cleanup was held on Saturday May 3. Despite the rainy, cool weather, we had nearly 30 volunteers, including the OHHS Baseball Team, come out to help clean up the downtown area. We would also like to thank Community Markets for the use of their dumpsters and The Village of Oak Harbor for donating trash bags for the event.  1/2 of a dumpster was filled on Saturday morning, which is trash that is no longer on our streets.  Everyone needs to do their part to help keep our small town beautiful. Again, we would like to thank everyone who participated and their efforts to help keep Oak Harbor clean! Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce

BY JOHN SCHAFFNER Love conquers all. That is a pretty definitive statement. But for the parent of a son or daughter addicted to opiates, it is an even bigger statement. Lesha Cuttaia graduated from Port Clinton High School. Her life was going great until 1998. She was working in the automotive world making a great career for herself having moved to Toledo in 1999. Her son, Franklin, called her one day from Athens, Ohio, and said, “Mom, come get me…I need help!” No, he wasn’t in an auto accident; he was using legally prescribed Oxycodone opiate pills. “I never knew anybody on opiates before,” said Lesha. Her son was experiencing one of the bad affects of opiate use…his organs began going dormant. Lesha knew she needed to find help for her son, but where? There was no help available as far as she knew. A short time later, she left the auto business and began working for “A Renewed Mind”, a mental health and addiction clinic in Toledo to learn all she could about mental health and addiction issues. She has since become a licensed chemical dependency counselor and has become all too familiar with the problems affiliated with addictions. Her focus is addictions; her passion is opiates. What she has found is scary. The use of opiates, including prescription drugs such as Oxycontin, Vicodin and Percocet, are no longer just issues in the big cities. They have found a home in Ottawa County. In the past two weeks, there have been two nasty incidents in Ottawa County involving opiate use…an alleged abduction and rape as well as a 33 year old individual assaulting his grandmother who had confronted him about stealing her Xanax. Heroine overdoses have become all too common, even here in quiet Ottawa County. Six Overdoses were reported to authorities in eastern Ottawa County alone in the past few weeks. In the last year there have been several fatal overdose events. Does the name Phillip Seymour Hoffman ring a bell? Lesha, along with her son, Franklin, have worked with the problem for the last 15 years, mostly in Toledo. Franklin has had several relapses over that time which eventually led him to heroine use. He would quit, but refused to work a full rehab program. He spent some time just hitchhiking around the U.S., and one day was picked up by a man named Mike, who has a place called Rusty’s House in Toledo, named after his son who died of an overdose. Mike told Franklin that quitting wouldn’t work unless he dedicated himself to a full rehab program. He did and has been clean for 2 years now. There is now help for those battling with these highly addictive substances. Lesha and Franklin recently (April 16) started a Facebook Page and a Foundation dedicated to helping addicts. The name of the Foundation: F*** Heroine Foundation”. (Lesha says it’s called that because that is what addicts generally say when they finally beat their addiction). They just started the Facebook page and it has already engaged literally hundreds seeking help. As of May 7, nearly 200 Ottawa County residents had engaged the Facebook page. Lesha has personally worked with a number of Toledo area law enforcement agencies, and has begun to make contact with local law enforcement in Ottawa County. There is little law enforcement can do when confronted with a user. Subjects are rarely arrested. A common user spends between $50 and $300 a day on opiates. Addicts in need of money often commit crimes to get what they need. She also works closely with a specialized rehab facility in Florida. With her license as a chemical dependency counselor and her fervent desire to meet the problem head on, Lesha Cuttaia is trying to become a local conduit for serious help for those users in need. Her son is now 34 years of age and has joined his mom in this crusade. So what are the early signs of opiate abuse? Withdrawing from family, lack of responsibility and trustworthiness, poor decision making, poor hygiene, acting extremely fatigued, spending lots of time in the bathroom, or developing an ashen skin color. Anyone with questions can call Lesha anytime, 24/7 at 419-870-7575 or you can contact her on her personal website. Her email address is Finally, if you think you or a loved one is in real trouble, don’t hesitate to call 911.

Walleye Festival Grande Parade

Fishing Report Is it time to use crawlers? It’s been a long time coming this spring, but hopefully the warmer weather is finally on its way. I can’t remember a time, living here in Port Clinton over the last 13 years, where I have had to wear my long underwear and the full body Mustang suit this long into the month of May. It’s really quite exhausting! Just like everyone else, I’m longing for the days where I can wear shorts and flip flops in the boat again. Walleye fishing has been good, but not great, this last week. The strong winds and cold temperatures we have endured have scattered the fish around their normal feeding areas, and locating and catching them has been a bit of a challenge, though not impossible. The water temperatures took a little step backwards, from the low 50’s back to the high 40’s, but are on the rise again now. The biggest question I’ve been reading on the fishing websites is, “Is anyone using crawler harnesses yet?” And, the answer is, “Yes!” So, pull them out of storage and start using them. They have been very successful enticing finicky fish to bite, but it’s also been a challenge keeping fish hooked all the way to the boat, since they are biting so lightly.


When trolling, I use the Off Shore Tackle in line planer board that attaches directly to my main fishing line. One trick I use to entice a fish to bite a little harder is when there is a tell tale sign a fish is biting, but it doesn’t look like it’s hooking up, I quickly free spool the line back to the fish about 5-10 feet, and engage the spool again. This makes the crawler harness fall, and then shoot forward again, making that walleye hit with a reaction bite. The reaction bite is a serious, “I’m going to eat you” bite, where as the opportunistic bite, is that of a fish hitting a bait that happens to be passing by and it isn’t all that serious about eating it. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, the hooks are deeply embedded in the walleye’s mouth and it will make it all the way into the boat. Word has it that the jig fishermen are still catching fish on the reefs with much success right now, too. So, no matter how big your boat is, or what experience level you are, there are fishing opportunities for everyone. Don’t own a boat? There are several walk on charters and head boats in the area to fish from too. Just check with your local bait shop for a good reference, and then go have some fun. Good luck on the water this weekend, and be safe. Captain Juls can be contacted by email at, or by phone at 419-8357347. Her website address is

The Port Clinton City School District is pleased to announce that its recent bond refinancing efforts will save district taxpayers in excess of $1 million in future debt service costs. In its original financing of the construction and renovation costs for Bataan Memorial, Port Clinton Middle School, and Port Clinton High School, the District utilized Build America Bonds (BABs). BABs were made available as part of the Recovery Act of 2009, and were intended to help lower borrowing costs on public capital projects. Congress and the Obama Administration encouraged public entities to use BABs to pursue needed capital projects, promising that the U.S. Treasury would pay a direct subsidy of 35% of the interest costs to the bond issuer. The BABs program was, and remains, one of the many casualties of the 2013 budget battle in Washington. What became commonly termed as “sequestration” led to an initial 9% reduction in the promised governmental subsidy payment to the school district. With no relief to the sequestration impact expected, District Treasurer Jeff Dornbusch, Board Vice President Beth Benko, and several advisors worked to find a solution that might reduce the significant financial burden of continued subsidy reductions. Ultimately, the District exercised the early call provision on its BABs, leading to an early redemption of the BABs. In turn, the District is now financing approximately $24 million in debt with traditional tax exempt bonds that carry a lower total net cost in excess of $1 million. For taxpayers, that means the millage rate for the debt can be reduced each year. Thus, district taxpayers will save this 1 million dollars over the next 27 years. “This is great news for our district and our taxpayers,” stated Mr. Dornbusch. “We were able to get out of the government subsidized program that became subject to sequestration and save even more money for our taxpayers.” Ms. Benko, who worked Mr. Dornbusch to facilitate the sale of the traditional bonds, added, “This collective effort demonstrates the commitment of the Board of Education, Superintendent, and Treasurer to remain vigilant stewards of the district’s financial health for the long term. We recognized that the government subsidy reduction would shift a financial burden to our district’s taxpayers where one was not originally envisioned, and worked to find a beneficial solution.” So what does this all mean for local taxpayers? The result is local property owners will see a decrease in the Port Clinton City School District portion of their tax bill starting next year.

PCHS Chorale rated Superior at State Competition!

On Saturday, May 3, the Port Clinton High School Chorale traveled to the Ohio Music Education Association State Contest in Van Buren. For the first time in school history, the choir qualified for this event and the Chorale represented themselves and PCHS extremely well. PCHS Chorale Director Eric Watts stated, “The Chorale received straight 1’s from all of the judges and were given an overall rating of Superior. Receiving straight 1’s is the highest rating any group can receive and the Chorale received this rating at both the District and State level, which is a tremendous accomplishment. The students in the ensemble worked hard all year long towards this goal and they were able to flourish in performance at the highest level.” Want to hear for yourself? The Chorale, along with the PCHS Chorus and Touch of Class, will host their concert on Thursday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the high school Performing Arts Center.

Port Clinton High School Chorale earned a Superior rating at the State Music contest.

Fifth graders meet their PCHS NHS pen pals Members of PCHS National Honor Society corresponded with grade 5 students at Bataan Intermediate Elementary during the school year. Letter writing is part of the grade 5 Language Arts curriculum and NHS members serve as role models to the younger students. On Monday, May 12, the pen pals finally met face to face for an afternoon of fun at Bataan Memorial Intermediate. After meeting for treats in the cafeteria, all the students had fun on the playground. More pictures are at or  facebook. com/portclintonschools.

St. Boniface students visit Toledo Museum of Art St. Boniface students, accompanied by art teacher Kami Brough, visited the Toledo Museum of Art to see how famous artists put into practice some of the techniques the Pictured here are Christian Owen and Michaella Kohlman with their NHS pen pal Amber Wuersig. K-6 students have been studying this year. It was an opportunity to see first-hand how rich colors and somber tones, foreground, background and perspective were used by painters as distant as 700 years ago to portray various events in the life of Christ. Students also spent part of the day in the museum classrooms, comparing and discussing their work as they practiced some of the elements of drawing they learned. St. Boniface Catholic School serves students in grades K-6 of all religions, racial, ethnic and income backgrounds. For information on the curriculum, admissions policies and registration contact the school office at 419.898.1340 or visit the website at . Students listen for directions on how to begin a drawing project.

Ada Warren adds watercolor to oil pastels in a hands- on lesson in the museum classroom.


Grace Johnson, Teresa Rosiak and Victoria Fuzinski use chalk pastels to apply some of the elements of drawing they learned during the museum field trip.

ICS fifth grade class digs through history at Johnson’s Island The fifth graders at Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton spent Monday being archeologists. Mrs. Jane Drusbacky’s class once again had the experience of participating in the Experiential Learning Program in Historical Archaeology offered by the Center for Historic and Military Archaeology of Heidelberg University. The students were able to explore and learn about the Johnson’s Island Civil War Military Prison site in Marblehead with Dr. David R. Bush. Dr. Bush is the site director for the Johnson’s Island Civil War Military Prison and a Professor of Anthropology. Johnson’s Island held more than 10,000 Confederate officers between 1862 and 1865. During that time, over 10,000 Southern officers found themselves confined on the island. The Confederate Cemetery on Johnson’s Island (the only area publicly owned on the island) contains 206 tombstones commemorating the over 300 prisoners that died while imprisoned here. Prisoners from battles throughout the war ended up imprisoned from weeks to years on Johnson’s Island. The students were able to dig for artifacts that serve as clues to the activities, health, and living conditions of the prisoners. The students and the adults that went with them were able to uncover more than 300 artifacts that hint at what life was like for the prisoners.

Danbury defeats Old Fort in sectional semifinal BY YANEEK SMITH Trailing by three runs in the fourth inning, the Danbury Lakers rallied to tie the score before taking the lead for good in the fifth on their way to a 5-3 victory over Old Fort in the Division IV Sectional Semifinal Saturday  at Danbury High School. Down 3-0 in the fourth, Danbury loaded the bases with two walks and a hit-by-pitch before Jake Internicola drove in a run with a base hit. Ryan Chapman would later score on a passed ball and the Lakers would score once more to tie it at 3. In the fifth, Seth Vargo tripled before Internicola drove him in to give Danbury the lead for good at 4-3. Mike Stys would add an insurance run with an RBI in the sixth before Chase Botson finished off the Stockaders. Internicola finished 3-for-3 with two RBIs, Vargo was 2-for-2 with a run and Botson had a double and scored a run. Old Fort’s Kaleb Lance had two hits including a double and two RBIs. Botson, who pitched the final three innings, allowed no runs while striking out two and walking two to get the victory. Al Corton started and pitched the first four innings for the Lakers. Jake Wilson took the loss for Old Fort, allowing five runs on six hits in six innings of work. He struck out two and walked six. The Stockaders got on the board in the first when Brad Heilman lead off with a walk and stole second before Brandon Tittle drove him in with a double. Lance drove in two runs in the fourth with a double to account for Old Fort’s other two runs. Danbury travels to Gibsonburg to face the Golden Bears for the sectional title on Wednesday at 5 p.m. 

Chase Botson pitches against Old Fort in the sectional tournament.

Port Clinton falls to Norwalk in sectional contest

Lady Lakers lose to Rangers, 11-4 BY JOHN KOZAK The Lady Lakers suffered another loss at the hands and bats of the Northwood Rangers on Thursday, May 8, by a score of 11-4.   Alyx Perram knocked in two runs. Kylah Mackall and Sierra Puckett ghad the other two RBIs.  Mackall hit a triple, and ElissaRae Barrere had a double.  Relief pitcher Sam Puckett struck out eleven and walked four in 6 1/3 innings.  So far this season the record of this very young Danbury team, with no seniors,  is 0-14.  The next home game for the Lakers This hot grounder caught Danbury second is Friday, May 16, against baseman Haley Menier in the throat in a Emmanuel Christian at 5 p.m., a makeup game from Bri Krupp takes a wicked cut at a pitch game against Northwood, but she recovApril 8. ered to throw out the batter. delivered by a Northwood hurler.

BY YANEEK SMITH Sometimes a little bad luck or a mistake can snowball into something much, much bigger. That’s just what happened to Port Clinton on Saturday  in their 10-0 loss to Norwalk in the Division II Sectional Semifinal at Norwalk High School. The Truckers took control of the game in the first inning, scoring seven runs and adding another three in the second to account for their 10 runs. In the first, Norwalk’s Joe Hinkley reached on a single before three consecutive bunts, the first two being base hits, plated a run to give the Truckers a 2-0 lead. Avery Albright singled to pushed the lead to 3-0 and Marcus McClain’s two-run single gave Norwalk a five-run advantage. Hinkley then connected on a double to make it 7-0, effectively putting the game away. The Redskins do have some games remaining, the final ones for six of their players: Zak Floro, Ian Kyle, Austin Krupp, Kody Ratliff, Dylan Webb and Joe Zam.

Port Clinton defeats St. Mary CC, 13-8 BY YANEEK SMITH Port Clinton’s softball team scored eight runs in the first two innings to take control in their 13-8 victory over St. Mary Central Catholic. The Redskins benefited from a balanced attack that saw a number of hitters get involved in the act. Molly Haberman and Amber Wuersig finished with three hits apiece and Taylor Steyer had two hits. Kate Mueller picked up the win in the circle. Dani Parish had two doubles and drove in three runs to lead the Panthers. The Redskins scored four runs in each of the first two innings to take an 8-1 lead before SMCC scored three runs in the third to cut the deficit to four. The Redskins pushed the lead to 11-4 with three runs in the fourth, and the Panthers responded with three runs in the next two innings to make it 11-7, but they were unable to get any closer. Port Clinton is currently 8-8 overall and 5-4 in the

Edison 12, Port Clinton 1 (6 innings) In a matchup with the soon-to-be Sandusky Bay Conference champions, Port Clinton fell behind early as Edison slowly built a lead on its way to a 12-1 win in six innings over the Redskins. The Chargers, ranked sixth in Division II, scored three runs in the first inning and two apiece in the next two to take a 7-0 lead. Edison scored two runs in the fourth and three in the sixth while Port Clinton’s lone run came in the fourth inning. KayLee Fox went 3-for-3 with two home runs and three RBIs, Chelsea Imus finished 3-for-3 with a double, a triple and two RBIs and Victoria Grimes and Hannah McGinley each had a double. If it defeated Toledo Scott on Tuesday, Port Clinton will travel to Sandusky to face Perkins on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Oak Harbor defeats Scott to advance to sectional final BY YANEEK SMITH The Oak Harbor Rockets baseball team defeated Toledo Scott, 19-0, in five innings, in their Division II Sectional Semifinal matchup on Saturday at Oak Harbor High School. Oak Harbor took control early, scoring nine runs in the first inning to effectively put the game away early on. The Rockets then added three runs in the third and seven in the fourth to account for their 19 runs. A number of Oak Harbor hitters contrib-

uted to help account for the scoring. Caleb Turco had a triple and three RBIs, Garrett Harvey finished with three RBIs, Andy Rathbun finished with one hit, two RBIs and two runs, Ryan Pavlica went 2-for-2 with an RBI and a run and David Tooman had a double and an RBI.

I thought that would give me an edge. I got a surprise.” Koeberlein said he learned that there are few similarities between auto and boat engines.
