Mayor unveils master plan

MARSH ATWITTER FOR INTERNATIONAL MIGRATORY BIRD DAY

By JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher Another plan for Waterworks Park and downtown Port Clinton revitalization has been unveiled by Mayor Debbie HymoreTester. She presented it at Port Clinton City Council Tuesday night. “The first step in a six-step process is the building of a master plan,” said Tester in an exclusive interview. What she shared with us, as well as City Council and city residents Tuesday night, is the newest waterfront master-plan developed through three workshop meetings that began last Dec. 17 facilitated by Cleveland consulting company, URS Baird. The newest plan takes into account the previous plans that have been developed over the past 10 years. The primary stated purpose of the new plan is to preserve full public access to the waterfront, maintain flexibility to market conditions and identify public improvement costs. The development market has been virtually non-existent since 2007 when nearly two-thirds of city voters accepted the zoning changes needed to commercially develop Waterworks Park. Less than four months after that vote, the primary developer, Puller Group of Indianapolis, pulled out. That was just about the same time mortgage and financial markets around the world collapsed. The new plan could, or might not include a transient marina. The new plan could or might not include hotel/waterpark com-

Tell Tales

Good time had by all at fundraiser for Teri Winchester What a great time we had Sunday afternoon at the Round House! First, just being a part of the big fundraiser for Teri Winchester was great. Second, being back up playing music on that stage was fantastic. Third, hanging around with all of those great island musicians like Bob Gatewood, Mike Adams, JD Owen, West Side Steve, Ben Parker with Benny and the Screamers, and Ray Fogg was

just fabulous! Now for the best part … Anita McCann told me on Tuesday that they raised close to $40,000 to help defray Teri’s huge medical expenses! Nick James of PiBTV.com had his camera in action all day long, and a live feed was sent directly to Teri in Florida where she is rehabbing. Thanks to Paula, Mike, Anita, Ty, Billy and Bob for putting it all together.

Ohio 53 safety audit under way The Ohio Department of Transportation is performing a Roadway Safety Audit of Ohio 53 in Bay Township. The audit is in response to a request from the Bay Township Trustees for improvements to the safety along that highway. The audit team includes ODOT employees, law enforcement officers, local officials and a representative from the Port Clinton City Schools. The team held its first meeting on April 27 to formulate a plan to study the road. The study area will encompass Ohio 53 from the Sandusky County Line to the Ohio 2 interchange. A road audit is a formal performance examination of the roadway. It considers the safety of all users of the road, estimates safety issues and prepares written reports on them. The team will also suggest oppor-

tunities for improvements. Field observations of the highway at various times and under various conditions will be made. At present, it is proposed that a series of five work sessions will be held by the team. The location and history of crashes over the past five years will be discussed and analyzed. Aerial photographs will be reviewed and field reviews will be incorporated into the meeting schedules. A tentative date to discuss the audit team’s findings with the public is scheduled for late June. The Bay Township Trustees will notify the public when the date and time for the public meeting are set. For information, contact Bay Township Trustee and member of the Audit Committee Dan Mulligan at 419-732-2855.

LOG CABIN COMES DOWN A piece of Catawba History was recently taken off the map. The old log cabin in the Catawba Cliffs was demolished and removed from the property due to structural and mechanical deficiencies. This home built in the 1920s had a majestic history with very few owners and was rumored to have housed diplomats during political meetings. The developers of Fairway Villas at CIC are the current owners of the property.

Planting peace this weekend at Perry’s monument In collaboration with the Put-in-Bay tradition of celebrating the Canadian holiday of Queen Victoria Day, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will hold its “Planting the Seeds of Peace,” event on Saturday, May 21. This is an annual event held at Perry’s Victory that commemorates the long-lasting peace between Canada, Great Britain and the United States through community gardening and educational activities for all ages. Perry’s Victory began holding the peace garden planting on Queen Victoria Weekend as a way to bring the mission of commemorating peace to life. “Gardens are synonymous with peace and transcend all language barriers,” explains Superintendent Blanca Alvarez Stransky. “The planting

of a peace garden at the Memorial is the perfect method for expressing the park’s dual mission — commemorating the War of 1812 and honoring the long-lasting peace between countries.” Children’s activities begin at 11 a.m. and run throughout the day until 2 p.m. Area gardeners young and old are invited to help plant the park’s new peace gardens on the corner of Toledo and Bay View Avenues and the corner of Hartford and Bay View Avenues. Planting starts at 10 a.m. gloves and trowels will be provided. Ice cream will be served to celebrate the planting and the beginning of a new season of events and programs at the memorial. Children’s activities will include a miniature fleet building out of recycled materials, compostable

flowerpots crafts and ranger games. For information about the “Seeds of Peace” or other special events at the park this summer, call 419285-2184 or visit www. nps.gov/pevi. For information about the Memorial construction project, call Stransky at 419-285-2184.

While Axis and Soviet POWs were both the perpetrators as well as victims of dictatorial governments and statesponsored violence, POW experiences on all sides embody ageless and timely themes of war and peace, justice under arms and issues regarding human rights, international reconciliation and future conflict avoidance. The roughly 372,000 German POWs held in U.S Army-operated camps across the United States were sent out to harvest or process crops, build roads and waterways, fell trees, roof barns, erect silos, work in light non-military industry, lay city sewers and construct tract housing, wash U.S. Army laundry and do other practical wartime tasks. With the high rate of 19th-century German immigration to America, many of those who worked with POWs spoke to them in their native tongue; some even had relatives or former neighbors among them. In the process, they formed significant, often decades-long friendships with “the enemy” and underwent considerable changes as individuals and as a group — thus fundamentally influencing postwar German values and institutions, as well as American-German relations. A number of POWs even chose to immigrate to the United States after the war. Using ten narrative panels and films about this story, TRACES’ mobile museum — a retrofitted school bus called the BUS-eum 3 — will tour, reaching schools, libraries, museums and historical societies. Barring unforeseen difficulties, the BUS-eum 3 will be in Port Clinton from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 23. It will be parked in front of the Ida Rupp Public Library at 310 Madison St. TRACES Center for History and Culture is a Midwest/WWII history museum located in Saint Paul, Minn. Each of its more than two dozen exhibits about Midwesterners’ encounters with Germans or Austrians between 1933 and 1948 forms part of a larger mosaic, a fuller image of a war that is often misunderstood or seen in clichés. At TRACES, WWII is a case study to learn from for today and future generations. To confirm the BUS-eum’s itinerary or learn more about this exhibit, see www.TRACES.org. The exhibit texts and photos can be previewed at that website; reading the narrative in advance facilitates speedier visitor flow in the bus.

The Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District is sponsoring a Television and Small Electronics recycling collection Saturday. This collection is for Ottawa County residents only. Materials from businesses will not be accepted. The event will take place from 9 a.m. until noon at the fairgrounds, W. Ohio 163. Residents will be charged to recycle CRT (lead/glass tube) televisions.

The fee associated with the service reflects 25 percent of the District’s cost and is based on contract pricing with the electronics recycler. To determine the size of your television, measure your screen diagonally from corner to corner. Fees for TVs are as follows: 24 inches and smaller — $2; 25” and larger — $3; all console units and projection screen TVs (limit two per resident) — $5.

Additional materials that will be accepted at no charge include electronics (DVDs, VCRs, stereos, etc.), flat-panel televisions and cell phone equipment. All electronics will be processed in the U.S. and all plastics, metals and leaded and non-leaded glass materials will be recycled. Computers are no longer accepted during the television recycling collection.

PLAN from 1A

with the waterfront, along with the appearance of our community as a whole, for our residents and guests to enjoy the improvements and attract them to our town,” the mayor said. According to the report from URS, strong support for a year-around use such as a hotel, conference center or waterpark was voiced by the stakeholders. Plan B offers potential to site this type of development. One of the primary comments to emerge out of the planning workshops was the need to enhance downtown and its linkage to the waterfront. Many suggested downtown enhancement took priority over waterfront development. For instance, one of the alternatives in Plan B was a modest marina complex at the foot of Madison Street as opposed to a large and expensive marina complex further east along the lake. URS suggested a “phased-in” implementation approach. They recommend starting with downtown enhancement, an issue that has challenged community leaders for 40 years. Second phase was to link downtown with the waterfront. Phase three is construction of the boulevard extension of Adams Street with utility services needed to provide for a hotel, conference center, waterpark or significant commercial develop-

ment. Phase 4 was the enhancement of the unique waterfront setting of the Waterworks property with walkways around Derby Pond. The final phase develops the Riverfront promenade and commercial establishments fronting on the riverfront. So, what will all this cost? First, the marina at the foot of Madison with possibly 10 floating docks would be just over $2.7 million compared to the $12-million price-tag for a full marina complex. The estimate for the rest of all five phases would be under $7 million. URS identified a number of grant sources for much of the land’s preparation. Mayor Tester is very anxious to find the money to tear down the old Waterworks Building and do the necessary environmental testing to see what might be needed to clean up the site. In fact, completion of the environmental testing was #1 on URS’s proposed action plan. It was in 1990 that the first group proposed a Marina complex. Actually, proposals of that nature, according to some sources, date back as far as 1964. So, the question remains … does this latest attempt at revitalizing the Port Clinton business and waterfront district have a hope of success? Or will it die as others have, mired in the minutia of city politics? Stay tuned.

plex. It is weighted heavily on “Smart Growth for Coastal and Waterfront Communities” issued by National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration. Among other things, they suggest mixed land uses, providing a range of housing opportunities, walkable areas with water views, development of a “sense of place,” preservation of open space and encourage community collaboration in development decisions to keep public access to coastal waters in tact. (Sound familiar?) By the time URS and community participants got down to the third workshop in February, the proposal was for a “Plan A” or a “Plan B.” Plan A focused on full development of pretty much all of the 14 acres of Waterworks Park. Plan B provided for less development and more open space. In both plans, Adams Street was extended to a cul-de-sac near the Portage River. At the February meeting, the consensus was to go with Plan B. It was stated in the URS report that Plan B does allow for future expansion if development demand warrant “The implementation of this plan, speaking of the first phase, we will continue to work simultaneously

Beacon Bridal Guide

Wedding reception math: How to know how much you need of everything (ARA) - Acting as your own planner can help save money on your wedding reception. From ordering wedding napkins and favors to deciding how much cake and drinks to have on hand, you can keep a handle on costs by self-managing as many reception-related tasks as possible. But how do you know how much to buy? The reception experts at My Wedding Reception Ideas.com, a leading online resource for brides seeking unique wedding favors, wedding decorations and wedding supplies, offer these tips for calculating how much you’ll need of key reception items: Beverages — With all the dancing and celebrating they’ll be doing, your guests are sure to work up a thirst. It’s important to calculate the right amount of beverages to buy so you don’t run out. A good rule of thumb is to plan for one drink per person, per hour. You may need more or less depending upon the make-up of your crowd. Lots of kids? You’ll probably need less alcohol and more soft drinks. Plenty of adults who love a good party? You may

need to adjust the amount of alcohol accordingly. Here are some averages to give you a starting point: • Beer - Three to four beers per person. * Champagne - Two glasses per person (mostly for the toasts). * Wine - Three quarters of a bottle per person. One bottle of wine or champagne yields about six to seven glasses. * Soft drinks - Three to four servings per person. A 2-liter bottle holds seven to nine drink servings. It’s always good to err on the side of caution and order more than you think you will need - about a third more is standard. Check with your distributor before you order; some will allow you to return unopened bottles. Food — If you’ll serve cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before the reception, limit this time to an hour or 90 minutes - you don’t want guests filling up before the main event. Estimate three hors d’oeuvres per person, per hour - roughly five per person for the entire time. If your reception will be a cocktail/hors d’oeuvres event with-

out a sit-down dinner, increase your calculations to 12 pieces per guest. If you’re serving a sit-down dinner, one plate per person per course should be your starting point. You may choose to ask the kitchen/caterer to have some extras on hand in case anyone requests seconds or some last-minute guests arrive. For the wedding cake, simply tell your baker how many guests will attend and they can recommend the size cake you’ll need. It’s good to estimate more servings than invited guests as some may want seconds or bring last-minute additions to the party. If you’ll serve desserts other than cake, estimate one to two servings per guest. Napkins — Personalized or plain, linen or three-ply, wedding napkins are a wedding reception must-have item. It’s hard to imagine going overboard and having too many napkins, but it could happen - and if it does you may find yourself using those napkins at your first anniversary celebration. To ensure your napkin buying is on target with your needs, follow these guide-

lines: * Two to three cocktail napkins per guest for the bar area. * One cocktail-sized napkin per guest for the cake table. * One and a half dinner or luncheon napkins per guest at the meal table if you won’t be using linen napkins. For example, if you’ll have 100 guests, plan for 150 dinner napkins. Finally, favors — This one may seem obvious — one favor per guest. In reality, however, you need to allow for breakage (What if someone drops a box of favors on the way into the reception hall and several shatter?) and guests who may ask to take an extra favor home for a relative or friend who wasn’t able to attend. Increasing your favor purchase by just 10 percent won’t cost that much more, but could allow you to send guests home with an extra favor or two.

Materion employees help co-workers in Japan With the first reports of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the thoughts of many Materion Corp. employees in the United States turned to their 38 Japanese colleagues at the Materion Brush Performance Alloys and Materion Beryllium & Composites sales office in Tokyo and production facility in Fukaya, Japan. Within a few days, word arrived that all of the employees and their immediate families were safe. But clearly the crisis was far from over, and Materion’s U. S. employees wanted to help — particularly those in the Company’s Elmore, Mayfield Heights and Reading, Pa., locations, who

work most closely with the facilities in Japan. The company quickly offered to provide lodging to any Japanese employees and their families who wanted to temporarily relocate to the United States. (None have chosen to move.) When concerns arose about the safety of the drinking water in Japan, two pallets holding a total 370 gallons of bottled water were air-freighted from Reading for distribution to the Tokyo and Fukaya facilities. Three more such shipments have since been delivered. To further the assistance efforts, Materion has made a corporate donation to the AmeriCares — Japan Disaster Relief Fund, and

set up a mechanism for employee contributions to the Fund. To date, the total corporate and employee gift has reached nearly $15,000. “Most of us cannot imagine what it would be like to have our daily life turned upside down, but that is what has happened to the people of Japan,” said W. Glenn Maxwell, President of Materion’s Brush Performance Alloys business. “Our hearts went out to our colleagues there, and we are proud of how our U.S. employees have responded. We know from the messages and photos that we have received from our co-workers in Japan that the assistance is very much appreciated.”

Employees at Materion’s operation in Tokyo sent a photo to show their appreciation for the thoughts, prayers and gestures of support from the co-workers in the United States. “We have been overwhelmed by the messages of goodwill and outpouring of support we have received from our Materion friends and co-workers,” said

Kazuhiko Sato, senior manager of Materion Brush (Japan) Ltd. “This has made all of us here in Tokyo and Fukaya very proud to be employees of Materion.”

Real estate broker Len Partin and Realtor Glenda Ward, both members of the National Association of Realtors, met with Congresswoman Kaptur to review and discuss important real estate issues. Some of the issues discussed were: retention of mortgage interest deductions for both primary and secondary homes; extension of the national flood insurance program as a five-year program verses the present one-year program; reform needed to the current restrictions and problems in financing residential condominiums and commercial properties; and local effects created by foreclosures and short sales. Congresswoman Kaptur strongly recommended “keeping your money home” through the use of our state- and locally owned banks and credit unions. According to Partin, Kaptur was receptive, informative and pleased to hear from our area.

Financial Focus

Can you save for retirement and education? The school year is coming to a close, which means that if you have young children, you are now one year closer to college days — and college bills. At the same time, you are moving nearer to your own retirement. Can you save for college while you put money away for retirement? Yes — but it will take planning, patience and discipline. Your first step is to be aware of the challenges you will face. As you know, the financial crisis of 2008 and early 2009 took a bite out of just about everyone’s retirement portfolio. And even though the markets have bounced back strongly, you might still have some ground to make up in your 401(k), Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other accounts. At the same time, budgetary pressures may lead to reductions in Pell Grants and other federally backed financial aid to students, so you may need to provide more assistance to your children than you once might have thought. To deal with these challenges and help yourself make progress toward your college/retirement objectives, consider the following moves:

• Establish some priorities. How much should you save and invest for retirement versus college? Also, how much of the college costs would you like to cover: 100%, 50% or perhaps a set dollar amount? There’s no one “right” answer for everyone — you’ll have to establish priorities based on your preferences and family situation. But once you’ve set these priorities, you’ll have some guiding principles to govern your savings and investment decisions. • Put time on your side. The earlier you start saving for both your retirement and your children’s college education, the better your chances of reaching your goals. • Choose the right investment vehicles. You may want to work with a financial advisor to choose the appropriate mix of investments for your needs. But in general, it’s a good idea to contribute as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement account. Your contributions are generally made with pretax dollars, and your earnings can grow tax deferred. And whether or not you have access to a

401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan, you can probably also contribute to a traditional IRA, which offers tax-deferred earnings, or a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, provided you’ve held your account at least five years and you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’ve reached age 59½. To save for college, you may want to explore a 529 plan, which also provides tax-free earnings, provided they are used for qualified higher education expenses.* • Keep investing. The financial markets will always move up and down — so in some months, you might not like what you see on your investment statements. But the most successful investors keep investing in good times and bad. If you decide to take a “timeout” from investing and head to the sidelines during a market slump, you could miss out on the next rally. By following these suggestions, you can keep moving forward toward two special times in your life: when your children attain the higher education that can help them succeed in life and when you can enjoy the retirement for which you’ve worked so hard. nnn

There may be state tax incentives available to in-state residents who invest in their home state’s 529 plan. Student and parental assets and income are considered when applying for financial aid. Generally, a 529 plan is considered an asset of the parent, which may be an advantage over saving in the student’s name. Make sure you discuss the potential financial aid impacts with a financial aid professional. Tax issues for 529 plans can be complex. Please consult your tax advisor about your situation.

Boys win league title The Danbury Middle School boys’ track and field team turned in a dominating performance at the 2011 Toledo Area Athletic Conference Championship Meet at Northwood High School. The boys won by a large 40-point margin over runner-up Northwood. Among the outstanding accomplishments was a schoolrecord setting performance by the Danbury 4x200m Relay Team of Jacob Kuebler, Shay Rickard, Chase Botson, and John Rhodes. Out of fifteen events, the Lakers won first place in just four; but the depth of the team allowed the Lakers to earn points from multiple participants in each event. Earning first place honors for Danbury were 8th graders James Dorko (pole vault), Ken Fleming (discus), Caleb Gerber (high jump) and the 4x100-meter relay team (Kuebler, Rhodes, Taylon Molnar and Zach Ward). Team members also included eighth-graders Johnathon Brooks, Alec Calton, Ryan Chapman, Hunter Stinchcomb, Mike Stys, Devin Thompson, and seventh-grader Connor Lenthe. Final Boys’ Scores: Danbury 118, Northwood 78, Kateri 70, Maumee Valley 60, Toledo Christian 56, Ottawa Hills 53, and Emmanuel Christian 28.

Jennifer Amos is PCMS Teacher of the Quarter Mrs. Jennifer Amos, Port Clinton Middle School Fleet 8 Language Arts Teacher, was selected as Teacher of the Quarter. PCMS students voted during their lunch periods for the one teacher they thought has been the most influential to them. Every student

could vote from a ballot of all PCMS teachers. Mrs. Carrie Sanchez, PCMS Principal, made an announcement at the end of the day, at the same time Mr. Patrick Adkins, Superintendent of Schools and Mr. Troy Diels, Dean of Stu-

dents surprised Mrs. Amos in her classroom with the award. Mrs. Amos received a plaque provided by PCMS Student Council and a gift certificate to Hair Quarters in Port Clinton. Some of the quotes from students on their nomination forms about her in-

cluded: “She always has an uplifting smile”; “She is awesome”; “She has worked hard this year”; and “She makes class fun and cares about kids opinions” The Teacher of the Quarter program was developed to allow students to recognize their teach-

ers for instruction and caring acts that enrich their lives. Each quarter, Port Clinton Middle School recognizes not only the teacher who receives the most votes, but also all of the teachers who received special nominations from their students.
