CRYSTAL BOWERSOX Elliston Idol Singer could be headed home for performance
Home visit Friday
If American Idol Contestant Crystal Bowersox survives Wednesday night’s elimination, this is her tentative “Hometown Visit” schedule for Friday, May 14:
BY ROBERTA REDFERN She has been compared to musical greats Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt. She has been called “the one everyone has to beat” and a “true artist” from the infancy of this year’s season of the wildly popular Fox television show “American Idol.” But local native and Idol contestant Crystal Bowersox — who calls a small western Ottawa County town home — has already made a mark on the world regardless of the show’s eventual outcome. “I hope she makes it. She deserves it,” said fellow Ottawa County resident and fan Emmie Crump. The show has aired weekly since February, and Elliston resident Bowersox made it to at least the final four before a winner is crowned in just a few weeks (The Beacon’s deadline for this publication was Wednesday morning before the elimination round airs Wednesday night). But if Tuesday night’s performance had the impact it should have had on the nation, she’s still around. “I have been saying this since Day One — you are definitely an artist,” said Idol Judge Randy Jackson. The top three contestants are jetted off to their hometowns for local performances that will air nationwide next week. Should Crystal still be on the show at the time of this publication, she is scheduled for a whirlwind of activities Friday in Ottawa and neighboring Lucas counties, including a mini-concert Friday afternoon at the Ot-

BY ROBERTA REDFERN A local girl with a special connection to overnight superstar Crystal Bowersox is hoping to be front and center Friday at the American Idol contestant’s event at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. Hannah Castro, 10, of Port Clinton, has had Type I diabetes since she was 5. It’s the same disease Bowersox has, and the same one that landed her in the hospital early in the American Idol competition. “Hannah looks up to Crystal as a role model,” said her mother, Jennifer Garlock. “It’s been a day of e-mails and constantly calling people. We are hoping we can get her up close to the stage. She will definitely be at the fairgrounds and then we are going to the Mud Hens game right after.” Hannah’s crusade to help herself and others afflicted with her disease goes beyond connecting with the American Idol star, however.

A week ago, she created Hannah’s Hope for a Cure — a Facebook page to garner support for the Walk for a Cure that is held at East Harbor State Park every year. In that amount of time, she has gathered more than 1,400 fans and has raised about $650 for her cause, said her mom. “The group just grew and grew with new members joining rapidly and donating,” Garlock said. Hannah is raising the money to go toward the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the national organization that hosts the Walk across the country every year. Hannah has to inject herself three to five times a day with insulin, but has a great attitude about her disease. Her site says she likes to listen to her iPod, go shopping, play on her scooter and listen to Hannah Montana. “I will do anything for my daughter … she is the bravest little girl I know,” Garlock said.
tawa County Fairgrounds. “It’s a way to allow Crystal to come back to her roots in Ottawa County, to be recognized for what she has accomplished,” said Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass, who helped organize the fairground event. “It also creates some positive national exposure for Ottawa County and that’s a good thing.” Crystal will participate in radio interviews at local stations Friday morning, followed by a parade in downtown Toledo. Later that evening, after her performance at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds, she will make an appearance at the Toledo Mud Hens game at Fifth Third Field in Toledo to sing the national anthem and throw the first pitch. Ottawa County’s rising young star, whose musical idols include Joplin, Jewel, Tracy Chapman and Melissa Etheridge, has stayed true to form throughout the national competition. Also playfully nicknamed “Mama Sox” by the nation because of her devotion to young son, Tony, the 24-yearold sang gospel at her local church growing up, rocked it out in local pubs and taverns, and played her guitar and sang in the subways of Chicago. Her style is that of a gravelly rocker with a powerful voice that she usually accompanies with a guitar, although she showed the world her potential for diversity a few times by ditching the guitar for a piano, having a Didgeridoo instrument player accompany her, and well, just Crystal and her voice. Wildly popular throughout the entire county, her biggest fans are locals Bill, her father; her boyfriend, Tony; and their son, little Tony. “Especially in Ottawa County I think there will be a pretty big turnout,” said Tom Cook, program director at 101.5 FM Toledo, The River. On Tuesday night, the contestants were mentored by actor and R&B singer Jamie Foxx and sang songs from movies. Crystal performed a solo song last, and also did a duet with fellow contestant Lee DeWyze halfway through. For her solo, Bowersox chose the song “I’m All Right” from the movie Caddyshack, a song by artist Kenny Loggins. “That performance just got ‘Crystallized.’ I think you actually took that song and made it better,” said Idol Judge Ellen DeGeneres. The other judges agreed. “I would say after that performance, you,

Tour tickets ickets for the American Idol tour performance in Toledo go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at www.livenation.com. Crystal, are back in the game,” said curmudgeon-like Judge Simon Cowell. Since she made it to the shows finals, she has remained “in the game” locally, as residents near and far root her on. As one drives west in Ottawa County, fan support is apparent everywhere. In Oak Harbor, where Crystal went to high school, not a single window front is clean of decorative paint cheering on the local sensation. Slightly further west is Bowersox’ hometown of Elliston, a tiny community that sits to the north of Ohio 163. At the outskirts of the town sits a sign reading “Ellison, Est. 1867 Home of Crystal Bowersox.” A stone’s throw away is Crystal’s church, the Trinity United Church of Christ, which decorates its yard with a sign supporting the star. Members meet every week to watch their hometown hero, wearing bright red shirts that say “Elliston, Ohio Supports Crystal Bowersox and I Do, Too!” Crump, an employee of Country Keg farther on down the road, wears her shirt at work, and is joined by patrons on a daily basis. She heard Crystal perform at the “Keg” a few years back — before her days on Idol — and is more than impressed. “She does an excellent Janis Joplin. I think that’s her best style,” Crump said.

It’s green, green, green everywhere
It’s Monday and I’m out and about on my lunch break. And “sure and begorra,” ‘tis a fine and splendid day! No, I’m not in Ireland. But with all the vibrant shades of green in the grass, foliage and flowers, our community looks a bit like pictures of Ireland that I have seen over the years. Here it is in the middle of May and the outdoors colors look clean and beautiful. And there is a fresh, clear look in the air. Last Friday night, May 7, the sky wasn’t very pretty, though. In fact, it was dark and threatening. When the alarm sirens sounded, I went out to look around but could see nothing awful heading my way. After a while my son Jeff called and said, “well, did the wind blow you away?” Nope, I was still around. He said that was because the storm in my area had gone past just a bit to the south. We talked for a few minutes and I didn’t think any more about it until later. That’s when I was standing at the kitchen sink, cleaning vegetables and fruit to cut up and put in the refrigerator and the sky off to the west looked foreboding
and dark. Only a few minutes later it had grown much darker still. In fact the sky seemed to be getting blacker moment by moment as I watched! It didn’t look good out in the western skies. So I called my brother-in-law. Was there a storm coming? “Nope.” Well, I told him, this one that is coming NOW looks worse than the earlier one. But he said he’d been watching television and there were no more forecasts for violent storms. Then we heard that a tornado had touched down in Clyde. Our sister lives in Clyde. She said the weather was fine there. Later we heard that a sheer cloud had been sighted there. Our sister hadn’t seen it. In fact, the weather at her house was totally okay. Then we heard that a tornado had touched down in Fostoria and was moving eastward at 60 mph into southern Seneca County where friends live. The friends were preparing to go into their basement. The storm did not arrive there.

Mother’s Day was a strange day for me. I was gone all day and didn’t have the opportunity to accept my son’s invitation to brunch. But when I got home at about 10 p.m. there was a very nice bouquet of cut flowers on the kitchen cupboard with a card. That was so nice, a welcome home indication that Jeff had been there. While carrying things from the car in the garage to the house, I saw a little box near the vase of flowers! Opening it revealed a little cross pendant on a chain. It was silver and had little beads in it. That was very nice. Then, under all of that, there was a manual for a microwave. So I looked in the cupboard where the old microwave had been and there was a new one in its place. The old was completely gone — it had totally disappeared from sight. I wouldn’t have the nuisance job of getting rid of it. All that was very nice — a super topper to a long day. nnn
All Hanging Baskets
Finally I went to bed and stopped thinking about all the forecasts. It had been a really “weird” weather night. Saturday was cold and blustery but since then there’s been a big improvement. Today is gorgeous. From one extreme to another — yes, that is spring time in northwest Ohio.

As summer heat gets nearer, some good advice is to make sure your ceiling fans are in good shape. Use of ceiling fans keep
the air in your home circulating, help to keep you cool and are cheaper to operate then your air conditioner. Another good option is a box fan or an oscillating fan. In fact, I sometimes use fans in addition to the air conditioner in order to keep the cost of electricity down. This works if you don’t have the temperature set too low on the thermostat. And your lawn equipment needs to be in tip-top shape now. Keep your power mower clean by scraping the blades and undersides of your mower (only when the mower is turned off, of course). Now is a good time to plant flowers; the frost-free date for our area is May 15, I believe. And if you do your summer repair work and painting now, rather than later, you’ll have more time for fun in the sun as the season rolls on. Be sure to put down mulch after your flowers are planted. Mulch helps to retain moisture and inhibits the growth of weeds. And it looks nice, too. nnn

AROUND OTTAWA COUNTY

Allen Twp honors veterans and Mother Nature Allen Township became a pioneer in Ottawa County by installing the first section of porous or pervious pavement in the Allen Township Cemetery memorial area. “Traditional concrete pavement or asphalt can be ‘impervious’ by not allowing water to filter into the ground. Instead the water runs off the surface picking up pollutants and warms the water temperature,” said Crystal Dymond, Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District stormwater technician. “This can be harmful to the receiving streams and aquatic life.
By installing the pervious pavement, Allen Township is allowing the water to filter into the pavement through small pores to reduce pollutants and potential flooding.” The memorial was designed to honor veterans, firefighters, families, organizations and now Mother Nature. This is not the first environmentally friendly act within the cemetery. Grant funding through the OSS Solid Waste District was used to install recycled steel posts for fences and recycled trash bins. Ottawa County Commissioner
Mark Stahl, Allen Township Trustees Scott Everhardt and Greg Blausey, maintenance supervisor Mike Harder, fiscal agent Sonia Eischen and the OSWCD were some of those present during construction. The pervious pavement installation was done by Bureau Concrete from Perrysburg. Allen Township officials are excited to continue “going green” and invite residents to support the memorial by purchasing engraved bricks or granite benches.

Murray to host tour and Car seat checks Saturday town hall in Sandusky COLUMBUS — State Representative Dennis Murray (D-Sandusky) scheduled a town hall meeting on Monday, May 17, at Sandusky’s Big Island Water Works as part of a continuing effort to hear the concerns and perspectives of the people he represents. The event will start with a tour of the Sandusky facility. Murray’s location for this town hall focuses attention on the challenges to safe drinking water. Following the tour, Doug Keller, Sandusky Superintendent of Water Services, will outline several of these challenges and answer questions about the ways water systems, like Sandusky, can respond. “We must not underestimate the importance of reliable, safe drinking water,” said Murray. “Hopefully, this event will help highlight the challenges we face
and help educate people about the water treatment process.” “One of the most rewarding aspects of serving as state representative are listening and talking to people in town hall and other meetings as we collectively consider how to best shape our state government,” said Murray. “It is also a productive opportunity to learn about legislation that we should be considering and to have small group discussions about people’s expectations of government in a time of hardship and change.” The tour and town hall will be 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Big Island Water Works, 2425 First St., Sandusky. Guests who plan on participating in the tour should wear sensible shoes — this is a working facility including many steps and tight spaces.

AROUND OTTAWA COUNTY
Compost workshops offered at wildlife refuge Composting is one form of recycling that can happen right in your backyard. Discover how composting yard waste, food scraps and other organic materials are used to create a nutrient-rich soil conditioner for your yard or garden. The Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste Management District, Sandusky County Park District, Ottawa County Soil and Water Conservation District and Seneca County Health Department are sponsoring a composting workshop on Tuesday, May 25. Pre-registration is required to attend one
of two available sessions because of limited space. The sign up deadline is Friday, May 21. The first session will begin at 10 a.m. and the evening session will begin at 6:30 p.m. In addition, there will be a charge of $5 to participate, which must be pre-paid before the event. The 2010 workshop will be held at the Ottawa County at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge at 14000 W. Ohio 2, Oak Harbor. Each year the workshop is sponsored in one of the district’s three counties. The compost workshop is open to all district residents. This includes all residents
of Fostoria and Bellevue. “It doesn’t make any sense to throw away materials that can be turned into compost in your backyard,” said Tim Wasserman, director of the OSS Joint Solid Waste Management District. “We want to offer these workshops to educate residents on the proper way to create and maintain a compost pile.” The workshop will cover basic techniques and essentials of composting. These aspects include the composting process, materials to place in your pile, common compost problems, as well as other helpful
information. Registered participants will be put into a drawing to win composting and gardening door prizes. In addition, participants will be provided with snacks and a hayride tour of the refuge grounds during the morning session only (in case of inclement weather, the hayride will not be offered). Residents may pre-register by calling the Ottawa County SWCD office at 419-8981595. Information regarding the workshop can also be found on the OSS Solid Waste District’s website: www.recycleoss.org.

All electronics will be processed in the U.S. and all plastics, metals and leaded and nonleaded glass materials will be recycled.

Ace of Clubs 4H club elect Kay Bodi as president The Ace of Clubs 4-H club met on March 22 in the community room at Riverview Senior Health Care Campus. Members received their 2010 Ottawa County Fair project books and were reminded the fair will be July 19-25 with pre-fair judging taking place the week before. All members taking livestock projects attended a Quality Assurance session. The remaining members played word games while the
younger Cloverbud members talked about farm animals and colored pictures of a farm setting. The Ace of Clubs 4-H club met again April 11 at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. The meeting began with the election of officers for the year. Members elected Klay Bodi as president, Sarah Bastian as vice president, Michelle Fillmore as treasurer and Emily Shaw as secretary.
Alex Suter and Thomas Keville will share health and safety responsibilities. Suter, Keville and Madeline Brazzel will share recreation tasks. Lauren Shaw will report club information to the newspaper. Following the election of officers, a grand Easter Egg hunt took place with more than 900 eggs hidden for participants to find. A special area was designated for Cloverbud members only. Each egg held paper tokens
to be traded in for special prizes of each member’s choice. Members were reminded of the annual Ace of Clubs Bake Sale to take place Saturday, May 22, at the Friendship Stores located at Ohio 53 and State Road and Ohio 2 and 101. Proceeds will help fund tuition for members attending 4-H camp. The next meeting will be May 16 at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds.
East Harbor gets $75K for improvements
Hi, Barry the Bear here. I am still being held captive. We have raised about $150 for the Humane Society. My kidnapper will not release me until we raise $2,000 for my friends at the Humane Society. They need food and litter really bad. I went golfing this week and even though I am having a good time, I really miss my family and friends at my home, the Catawba Inn. Please make checks payable to the Humane Society and drop them off or send them to the Catawba Inn at 4112 Crogan Road, Port Clinton, OH 43452. Please, I want my friends to eat and I want to come home.

In September, Emily Wadsworth joined Stein Hospice as a nurse at the inpatient care center. Friends worried that working at a hospice center might be difficult for Emily, whose cancer was in remission. “Because I have cancer, I should be there,” the 61-year-old Clyde nurse told them. Emily’s career at Stein was brief, but her impact was vast. She served patients and families with compassion and dedication, never satisfied until all their questions were answered. When Emily’s cancer returned and she was no longer able to work, she shifted her attention to other Stein projects. This spring she laid the groundwork for Emily’s Library. A room at the care center will soon hold books, recordings and computers to help educate and comfort patients and families. “I think one of the best gifts you can give a family is the understanding of what is happening,” she explained. Emily joined a Stein committee that was planning a caregiver conference so she could share her experiences from both sides of the bed. And in an effort to further reach out to others, she asked to be part of Stein’s advertising campaign. Emily wasn’t able to complete all her projects. She died April 8 at the care center, receiving the kind of care she once delivered. Stein Hospice helped Emily deal with her death on her terms.
to be a great beach again. While it appears to many that well-intentioned engineering mistakes have harmed the beach in the past, the state is now on the right track to correct these issues. Our actions today will ultimately allow science and Mother Nature working together to restore the beach that many of us enjoyed in years past.” Murray also noted that Ohio has applied for $1.14 million of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding to better understand the complex situation at East Harbor and to conduct a pilot project to determine the best method for restoring the beach.

Caregiver support groups offered in Ottawa County People who have Alzheimerâ€™s disease or a related disorder are often cared for at home by family members and friends. The Alzheimerâ€™s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, invites anyone who has a family member or friend with memory loss to attend a caregiver group meeting. Caring for a person with Alzheimerâ€™s disease is a challenge. Changes in the personâ€™s behavior, caused by the progress of the disease, can lead to frustration and anxiety for a caregiver. Caregivers attending a support group meeting find a relaxed, confidential atmosphere. They are among other caregivers and discuss suggestions for handling specific medical, legal, behavioral and financial problems. Meetings are free and open to the community. Registration is not required however, it is strongly suggested that you contact the facilitator of the group you plan to attend
for the first time to confirm the time, place and date of the meeting or the Alzheimerâ€™s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, at 1-800-272-3900 or 419-227-9700. Port Clintonâ€™s meetings are at 9 a.m. the second Monday of every month in the Conference Room at Magruder Hospital, 615 Fulton St. The facilitators are Priscilla Faris, 419-341-1434, and Marian Blevins, 419-797-4923. The facilitator for Oak Harbor meetings â€” which have no set time â€” is Amy Simkus, 419-239-8235. The Alzheimerâ€™s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, provides an extensive range of caregiver and professional education programs, support groups, a 24-hour Helpline, an Adult Day Center and more.
