All donations (suggested $5.00) go to support the “Rise Above Traveling Exhibit.”
The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit will tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen to young people all across America in an experiential way. We will use the Airmen’s story as an inspirational example of how they might reach beyond their grasp to attain new levels of achievement just like the Tuskegee Airmen did in WWII, and “rise above” the challenging circumstances in their lives. The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit will allow us to take this exciting story off the airport and directly to the young people in ways we could never do with using our airplane alone. When the exhibition and the airplane can be together at an aviation venue, the story will be even more compelling and powerful. We believe that the combination of the inspiration story of the Tuskegee Airmen told in an exciting and experiential multi-media presentation will inspire young people in many areas. We expect many will be inspired to pursue a future in aviation.

Golfers Unite for United Way
Last week, on a cool and breezy Friday, 23 teams of hardy men and women golfers donned their best spring-in-Ohio gear and played the beautiful 18 holes at Catawba Island Club for the benefit of United Way in Ottawa County. It was the largest field in the four year history of the event. The annual United Way golf outing featured a competitive and good-humored field, with the team of Marty Sutter, Ken Williams, Rich Hillman and Justin Moore winning the men’s competition in a score-card playoff, and the team of Alison Falls, Marsha Bordner, Karen Coffin and Diane Beale winning the women’s competition. Adam Bess and Marsha Bordner won the closest to the pin contest, and Laura Borows and Brian Tobias won the longest drive competition. Other prizes that were awarded included Best Britches (Karen Coffin and Josh Grymkowski), Best Dressed to Golf in the Dark (the team of Adam Bess, Jayson Hedberg, Joey Capizzi and Dominick Frausto) and Best Attitude and Sass (the team of Karen Mathison, Cheryl Kistner, Karri Anthony and Nikki Smith). On behalf of those served, United Way in Ottawa County expresses gratitude to the golfers, the sponsors and to CIC. All the proceeds from the event go to help fund the important work of United Way in Ottawa County. United Way in Ottawa County changes lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community. United Way is focused on the building blocks for a good life: education, income, and health. Starting at the root, United Way addresses the circumstances that destabilize communities. United Way recruits people and organizations who bring the passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done. You can give, you can advocate, and you can volunteer – that’s how to LIVE UNITED. For more information, visit unitedwayottawacounty.org.

Port Clinton City Beach and Lakeview Park clean up
The cleanup will be held on Saturday, May 10 beginning at 9 a.m. Volunteers are needed and are asked to report to the Lakeview Park Shelter House with gloves & rakes. Please dress appropriately for the weather. The Cleanup began in the early 1990’s when it was a part of the “Lake Erie Shoreline Sweep”, which was an annual spring effort to clean all of the beaches along the Lake Erie Shoreline. Those beaches included the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge/Crane Creek Beach, East Harbor State Park Beach, and the Port Clinton City Beach. On average, close to 100 volunteers have collected approximately 3 tons of debris at the Lake Erie Shoreline Sweep event. Areas to be cleaned this year include the Port Clinton beach, Lakeview Park and Water Works Park. These areas include a 1 mile strip of our valued shoreline. Past volunteers have included scout groups, high school science and government classes, service organizations, members of the Friends of Lakeview Park committee and concerned citizens who simply wanted to make a difference. A pizza lunch is being planned for volunteers after the event. Gloves and bags will be provided. For more information on the event, call Diane Ball at the OSS Solid Waste District 419734-6783 or Tracy Colston of the PC Recreation Department 419-734-5522, ext. 6.

Danbury Police Department This Friday, May 2, we arrived to town around 6:45 p.m. and heading to our place we came across a Danbury Police Officer with his lights going, but no car pulled over at the intersection of 163 and 269. Once we got closer to the officer, we saw he was “serving and protecting” an injured swan. I told the officer I thought he was a hero for doing what he did. I’m an animal rescue person and

Development survey A survey was taken about Water Works Park. I’ve lived here my whole life and never heard of the survey. I’ve asked a lot of people and they didn’t get to see it either. Finally one person said it was on a computer, Facebook, etc. Not being a computer whiz, I didn’t even know about it, so that means I couldn’t vote! JUSTICE? Is this the way we are heading? Maybe a survey for ONLY the people in Port Clinton is the answer. Let’s be fair about this! Clarabelle Bothe Port Clinton

Gardner designates Bird Ohio Day On April 22, members of the Black Swamp Bird Observatory (BSBO) staff, along with three Ohio Young Birders Club (OYBC) members and their families, traveled to Columbus, Ohio to accept the official resolution designating May 10 as the first annual Bird Ohio Day. The resolution was initiated and drafted by Black Swamp Bird Observatory and sponsored by Senator Randy Gardner. The Resolution was adopted by the Ohio State Senate on March 20. The resolution was also sponsored by Representative Chris Redfern and Representative Mike Dovilla, and was adopted by the House on April 2. The Bird Ohio Day resolution encourages teachers to incorporate birds into their lesson plans; encourages all citizens of the state of Ohio to spend time outside enjoying the spectacle of bird migration through our state; calls attention to the economic impact of bird tourism in Ohio; and urges all citizens to be better stewards of the habitats migratory birds rely on for their survival. BSBO Executive Director Kimberly Kaufman has high hopes for the resolution. “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 conserv-
ing the habitat that this economic engine is built upon.” said 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.” Senator Randy Gardner stated, “I am pleased to sponsor the Senate resolution recognizing May 10 as Bird Ohio Day. Birding is an important part of Ohio’s strong and diverse travel and tourism economy, in addition to bringing great enjoyment to thousands of Ohioans and visitors to Ohio from all over the world.” The celebration of the first Bird Ohio Day will take place at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area on Saturday, May 10, at 10 a.m. Senator Gardner, Representative Redfern, and representatives from the offices of Senator Sherrod Brown and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur will be making remarks. A special letter of recognition from Governor Kasich will also be part of the ceremony. In addition to the Bird Ohio Day ceremony, there will be many family-friendly, bird-related activities taking place throughout the area that weekend and the public is invited to attend.

Fishing Report Take advantage of days you can’t fish due to lousy weather Last season I wrote an article explaining how to tie up your own crawler harnesses. With the weather we’ve had this past week, now is a good time to start building some of your own harnesses to use for this season. There’s nothing more satisfying than catching fish on a lure that you’ve created yourself. After a great start to the season weather-wise, this past week has confronted us with cold front conditions, rain, and big winds. The walleye bite slowed down in areas that were very productive for the first few weeks after ice out, and the fish are now moving around more, so locating them after we can get back on the water is the first order of business. Using your electronics to check an area before you start fishing is mandatory, because simply putting your lines in the water in a spot where you caught them last time you were out will not be productive if the fish are not in the area. Once you find the fish, the next order of business is to figure out what lure will be the most effective. When the water temperature is below 50 degrees, crankbaits are best, and when it reaches 50 degrees it’s time to start pulling the crawler harnesses. Number 5 and 6 blades are most often used here. There is a plethora of colors to choose from, now that there are so many people painting custom colors on
blades, but remember the simple blades in gold, copper, and silver caught a ton of fish long before the custom painted blades came along, so spending a lot of money on blades is not necessary. Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best approach. I have spoken to many anglers that have started pulling crawler harnesses last weekend, and they said they were catching the bigger fish on the crawlers. 1 oz inline weights or number one Tadpoles 25-35 back was best. That puts the bait in the top ten feet of the water column where these fish are suspending just below the surface. You can run the crawler harness and the Deep Diving Husky Jerks and Reef Runners at the same speed, so put both out and let the fish tell you what they want. If one is more productive than the other, switch out the unproductive baits for the more successful ones to help you catch more fish. As the water warms, though, you’ll want to speed up with the crankbaits, so then it becomes an either/ or situation on choosing which lure to use. Good luck on the water this weekend, and be safe!

SPORTS Rockets bounce back with a win over the Tigers BY YANEEK SMITH After losing two straight games, Oak Harbor’s softball team rallied to defeat Huron, 8-4, and get back in the win column. Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the fourth, the Rockets rallied and scored four runs to take the lead for good. Justine Webb drew a walk and advanced to second on Emma Vidal’s single. Both runners moved up on a passed ball and Webb later scored on a passed ball while Vidal advanced to third. Theresa Stokes drew a walk to put runners on the corners, and Taylor Weborg reached on a wild throw by the shortstop. The throw, which allowed Vidal to score to cut the deficit to 4-3, was later recovered by the first baseman, who threw Stokes out at home. Weborg stole second, and Brandy Lochotzki walked, putting runners on first and second. After both runners moved up on a passed ball, Olivia Rollins singled to bring home Weborg and tie the score at 4. Maddy Rathbun then grounded out to shortstop, scoring Lochotzki. Lochotzki came up with a big play in the top of the fifth, helping to preserve Oak Harbor’s lead. With runners on first and second and one out, Huron’s Madi Orzech hit a liner to center that Lochotzki ran down for the out, and, after throwing the ball to the infield, the Rockets were able to get the baserunner in a rundown before Stokes tagged her for the final out. The Rockets (12-6, 2-4 SBC) scored one run in the fifth and two in the sixth to push the lead to four. Chrislyn Stevenson went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk, Rathbun finished with two RBIs and Webb, Rollins and Emma Bergman each had one RBI. Rollins and Vidal finished with two hits apiece and Stokes drew two walks. Bergman got the win to improve to 12-6. She allowed four runs, two earned, on seven hits to go with a strikeout and no walks. Madi Orzech hit two home runs and drove in three runs and Bailey Gadd and Emma Elder finished with two hits apiece.
Edison 5, Oak Harbor 0 Edison jumped on top of Oak Harbor with three runs in the bottom of the first before defeating the Rockets, 5-0, in Sandusky Bay Conference action. Kaylee Fox went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs and Victoria Grames and Lauran Wolf each finished with an RBI. Karyn Schmidt didn’t allow a run while giving up four hits. She walked two and struck out seven. Emma Bergman had a hit and drew a walk. She took the loss in the circle, allowing five runs, two earned, on 10 hits to go with two strikeouts and a walk.

Mueller throws a no-hitter in Redskins’ win over Rockets BY YANEEK SMITH
Despite getting a no-hitter from Kate Mueller, the Port Clinton Redskins softball team had to eke out a 2-1 victory over rival Oak Harbor in Sandusky Bay Conference action last week. Mueller, who went the distance while allowing one run on no hits to go with eight strikeouts and three walks, allowed a run in the first inning and Port Clinton found itself down, 1-0, in the top of the seventh before rallying to get the win. The ‘Skins first three hitters, Molly Haberman, Emily Ashley and Amber Wuersig, reached base to begin the seventh inning, two of them on base hits and the other on an error that could have been ruled a hit. The next two hitters failed to deliver before Allie Schroeder connected on a base hit up the middle to score two runs and give Port Clinton the lead for good. In the bottom half of the inning, Theresa Stokes got the Rockets going with a walk and was bunted to second by Kimmi Wahlers, who was thrown out at first. However, Stokes decided to try and advance to third and Paige Culver hit Wuersig with the throw to beat Stokes by a hair for the second out. The third out was recorded when Tiffany
Colston made a running catch into the fence of the Oak Harbor dugout. The Rockets’ lone run came in the first when leadoff hitter Maddy Rathbun reached on a walk, stole two bases and scored on a wild pitch. Emma Bergman took the loss despite both of her runs being unearned. She allowed five hits and struck out one batter and did not walk anybody. Port Clinton 12, Margaretta 2 (6 innings) Holding a three-run lead in the fourth, the Redskins erupted for five runs to take control on their way to a 12-2 win over Margaretta. The win, which lifts Port Clinton to 6-7 overall and 4-3 in the Sandusky Bay Conference, saw a number of hitters get into the action, most notably Amber Wuersig and Molly Haberman, who both went 3-for-3 with two RBIs. Kate Mueller, who is 5-1 this season, allowed two unearned runs and struck out two. She walked three batters in six innings of work. Caitlin Conley led the Polar Bears with a double and an RBI.
Rockets sweep Redskins
Danbury senior John McClellan hurls the shot put 30’ 9” on Tuesday against Northwood and Toledo Christian.
BY YANEEK SMITH After falling behind early, Oak Harbor’s baseball team scored three runs in the first to take the lead for good in its 9-3 victory over Port Clinton, earning the win in Sandusky Bay Conference action. Down 1-0, the Rockets scored three runs in the first on RBIs by Andy Rathbun, Ben Genzman and Jourdan Maguire. Oak Harbor pushed the lead to 4-1 but the Redskins responded with two runs of their own. However, the Rockets scored five unanswered runs to put the game away. Garrett Harvey had a key two-run double. Aidan Rospert scored twice to lead Port Clinton, Ian Kyle scored once and Nolan Smith had an RBI. Oak Harbor 3, Port Clinton 1 Oak Harbor manufactured three wins to defeat Port Clinton, 3-1, for its first league win of the year. Garrett Harvey, Andy Rathbun and Ben Genzman scored the three Rocket runs and Zak Floro had an RBI groundout for the Redskins. Harvey got the win for Oak Harbor, allowing one run on just two hits in six innings of work. He struck out six and walked five. Harvey got out of several jams, allowing just one run in the third after walking Port Clinton’s first three batters. He left runners on second and third in the fifth inning and got out of another jam in the sixth. The Redskins got singles from Aidan Rospert and Drew Fodor, but had two runners thrown out at the plate, something that proved to be key.

Over the last 15 years, since the proliferations of the internet, paid circulation newspapers have seen their subscriptions drop dramatically, up to 8% per year. That is why you hear “Newspapers are dead”. That’s the bad news. The good news is FREE community papers, like The Beacon, have had ZERO reduction in circulation and readership! Our latest audit shows that nearly 80% of the households who get The Beacon READ The Beacon. PLUS The Beacon is read by over 2 individuals per household. So, while the daily papers have suffered, the FREE communities weeklies like The Beacon have thrived. And better yet The Beacon’s Web Site just gets better and better, updated every day with new community news items. The Beacon was “Hyper-Local” before the term was coined! So, when you hear “Newspapers are dead” ... don’t believe it! Community papers are alive and well, thank you! And our Web Sites are great as well because we don’t have to worry about losing readership to our own Web Site. All you have to do is sit back and read your weekly Beacon and stay informed about the “good news” happening every day.
For my business, Bayside Comfort, we choose to advertise with The Beacon! Here at Bayside Comfort we see the results from advertising in The Beacon, and we continue to do business with The Beacon for this reason. As a local business Bayside Comfort has been operating for over 23 years, and we know advertising is an important part of getting services to our great customers who need them. The Beacon helps us do just that!
