Davis Besse officials tell NRC they are ready BY JOHN SCHAFFNER “They know they are being watched.” Those were the words of Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass following Thursday night’s public hearing on the defective nozzles feeding into the nuclear reactor at the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station. “I am satisfied that they made their case and that

safety is their primary concern,” he said. Eight members serving in various capacities for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission were on one side of the room, and six executives and engineers from FENOC — First Energy Nuclear Operating Company — were on the other side. The focus of the evening was a presentation by

FENOC to the NRC explaining their rationale for getting DavisBesse back online within a few weeks after inspections during their recent re-fueling outage uncovered cracks in the Reactor Vessel Head Control Rod Drive Mechanism nozzles. This is a near repeat of the 2004 problems that caused the plant to make major repairs and replace the Reactor

Vessel Head altogether. Clark Price, director of site performance improvement, noted that the plant had operated safely and reliably over the past several years. Workers also completed weld overlays on all four reactor coolant pump suction lines as well as a number of other modifications to make the reactor safer and more reliable.

During the refueling outage, Davis-Besse engineers made more than 280 manual examinations. Then, on March 12, they identified the first indications of boron deposits indicative of leaks in the nozzles showing the deposits on the reactor head and immediately notified the NRC. On one

Relief efforts in full swing Tornado destroys 11 homes in western Ottawa County BY ANGIE ADAIR Recovery efforts are in full swing after a tornado ripped through northwest Ohio late Saturday night. According to Fred Petersen, director of the Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency, 11 homes were destroyed in Allen Township. “You don’t realize the devastation until you’re here and you look at it,” said Rose Markel, Catawba Island. Markel is a volunteer for the United Way and was on scene Tuesday helping to

United Way, along with the Ottawa County EMA, Salvation Army and Red Cross have set up an operations and communication center — a big blue tent — in the heart of Ottawa County’s damaged area. There volunteers are checked in and water and gloves are handed out. “This is just amazing how warm and giving the people are,” said volunteer Sue Gillig, also of Catawba. Victims of the

BY ROBERTA REDFERN The Greater Port Clinton Arts Council is the sole host of an annual downtown Port Clinton tradition this weekend — the Arts and Crafts Festival. This is the 17th year for the daylong arts and crafts fair that stretches along Madison Street, and the first time the arts council has taken it on by itself. Last year, the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce —which has run it in the past — shared responsibilities with the council as members got their feet wet and prepared to take it on this year. It will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 12. Arts Council Secretary Sarah Pietrykowski said there will be about 70 booths spread up and down the street with area artists and their original artwork — anything from paintings and wood carvings to glass work and confectioners to name a few. There will also be children’s art projects, demos and entertainment going on all day. “We are very excited to be supporting not only local artists and the arts, but also to be bringing people into downtown Port Clinton to showcase what local businesses have to offer,” Pietrykowski said. Last year’s addition of demos such as

Prayers after the storm

The weather is getting a little crazy! Last weekend’s tornadoes were scary and our hearts and prayers go out to the families affected. I am reminded of the tornado that tore through Port Clinton and Catawba in 2002 that destroyed a lot of properties, but miraculously, no injuries. Our neighbors in western Ottawa County and Northeast Wood County weren’t so lucky. nnn

Please join Scott Harvey from Noon - 4:00pm on June 12th for a tasting of Scott Harvey Wines.

Deep ruby color. Salty roasted peanuts, pepper, and blackberry aromas follow through on a supple entry to a dryish medium body with tangy fruity, vanilla bean notes and fine powdery fruit tannins. A nicely structured, claret styled zin for the table. Great with ribs, burgers and grilled meats.

Scott Harvey Wines, the initial line of wines in the “Creative Wine Concepts” portfolio, was created out of market demand for Scott’s wines - “niche wines that over deliver.” The Scott Harvey line focuses on Scott’s roots - Zinfandel, Syrah and Barbera from the Sierras. Approachable, food friendly and full of luscious fruit, these wines have struck a cord in the marketplace. Scott has hit his stride with his new mantra - “Scott Harvey Wines, it’s time!” Stay tuned this is just the beginning!

Beacon Bits

Mayflies are back for another season The first onslaught of mayflies that I saw this year was June 3. They were ranged by the thousands along the storefronts at the shopping center at Port Clinton and around the McDonald’s restaurant. Then around to the back of the buildings there was actually a pile of them near the rear entrance of the Rite-Aid Pharmacy. I haven’t seen a pile of mayflies in years — at least that I can remember. But, decades ago, on most mornings, there would be piles of the little dead critters under all the street lights. City workers would go around with scoop shovels and scoop them up and haul them away. I know they look goofy, I know they smell bad, I know they are a nuisance. But, just the same, I sort of like them. I know, I know. What is there to like about a pile of bugs? There is no rational reason. It must be that they remind me of fun summers in the past, happy memories of summer dates, swimming parties at the beach, drive-in movies, Bermuda shorts and watching the shooters at Camp Perry. Mayflies are reminiscent of fun times and I like them. (But only a little!). nnn

In a cover letter, he outlines the year’s primary achievements as: • Handling 30,000 consumer complaints (a record-high number) and his office now takes complaints online or by phone rather than solely on written forms. • Filing eight major lawsuits and recovering $2 billion for investors and retirees. • Joining coalitions of federal, state and local officials to prevent housing foreclo-

sures. The Attorney General’s office also is continuing to pursue action against predatory lenders and perpetrators of mortgage fraud, foreclosure scams and other illegal activities.

Sophia Loren said, “Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.” And Robert Kennedy was quoted as saying, “only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” The moral of those two statements: take a few risks and don’t be afraid to follow an uncharted course or tackle an untried task. Those who never do anything are the only ones who can claim they never make a mistake.

Sound Off Thank you

This thank you to the Port Clinton Police and EMTs is long, long overdue. We want to thank them for all the times they had to come to our home. Their very concerned approach was very reassuring to us. Out of four times we’ve had to call for assistance, the response time was amazing. Three times, Geo had to be transported to the hospital and each time they assured me that it was their duty to help us and not to feel bad about calling them. Although the fourth time did not call for going to the hospital, the response time was also excellent — I don’t know what I would have done without their assistance. Thank you, thank you police Lt. “John,” and also all the other times thank you to the police officers who waited with me to lock up the house and head to Magruder Hospital. Also thank you to the great ER staff at Magruder Hospital. They are a very caring group and their caring attitudes helped put us at ease — it was amazing to us when they called our home the next day to make sure everything was okay. We are proud to be residents of this great community and

wish we could stay here forever. This is a great community to live in. Thanks, Geo (Ray) and Julie Thomas

Airport tour

I want to thank Jack Stables and Dave Hirt of the Erie Ottawa Regional Airport Authority. Monday, April 26, we toured our local airport with 35 Cub Scouts and 15 adults. The Cub Scouts learned about airplanes and all the equipment it takes to maintain the airport facilities. The Cub Scouts also witnessed the rebuilding of the Tin Goose airplane that is taking place in the airport hanger. When we were finished, the boys did not want to leave; they were truly amazed by the experience. Thank you so much Jack Stables and Dave Hirt for taking after-hour time to help out with our local Cub Scouts. You both are true citizens and made great use of a government facility.

BESSE from 1A of the nozzles, they found nearly two teaspoons of boron crusting. The reactor head has 69 nozzles. During the outage, 24 of the nozzles were identified for modification and the report stated that the flaws were found before they resulted in an operational challenge. More importantly, the structural integrity of the reactor head was not compromised. Scott Plymale, manager of plant engineering, put together a “Root Cause” team, utilizing experts from across the country. They performed rigorous examinations evaluating the boron deposits, operating temperatures and weld-stress calculations. The metallurgy examinations were extensive. They determined the primary cause was water stress corrosion cracking caused

by susceptible material, the environment and tensile stress. They concluded that the Reactor Vessel Head was made with materials and manufacturing methods consistent with other industry units manufactured in the 1970s, when the Davis Besse reactor was built. In analyzing the crack growth, the team concluded that the flaw is not expected to grow through the wall. Ken Byrd, manager of design engineering, said the defective nozzles have been re-welded and moved to a region with no primary water stress corrosion cracking and that they used new weld material that is resistant to degradation. In fact, “the new welds should last 25 years, long after the scheduled time for the reactor head to be replaced,” he said. According to Byrd, all nozzles with indi-

cations of degradation have been modified. oughly investigated the root cause of the All other nozzles have been thoroughly ex- problems, developed a new method to amination during the current outage.

TORNADO from 1A storm as well as volunteers are taking notice. “I can’t believe how many friends we have and how many friends we didn’t know we had,” said Jami Wyatt. She, along with her husband, Doug, and two children were in the basement of their home as it was destroyed above them. “We could hear the house creaking and the ceiling tiles were falling,” said Devon Wyatt, 11. He said the family had just returned home from a graduation party and went directly to the basement after hearing about a possible tornado on the radio. The family was watching TV a minute before it happened. Devon, his 8-year-old sister Lauren and his parents had to dig their way out after the storm. “Our kitchen was kind of in tact and we were able to get some clothes out,” Jami said. Other than those items and a table and chairs, the Wyatt’s house was destroyed leaving the family — like many others — to rely on friends, family and in some case strangers. “It has been amazing the outpouring of support,” said Jami. The help pouring into the area is much needed. In addition to the 11 homes destroyed, 14 were severely damaged and more than 20 affected in some way by the 165 mph winds. The governor came Tuesday to survey the damage and an assessment from

ARTS from 1A glass blowing and blacksmithing added to the event’s magnetism. This year, there will be demos and children’s programs at some individual booths as well, including local potter Collin Budd, a take-home art program for children by the Bethesda Arts Council; and a flag painting project for children at the Ro’s Garden Custom Artistry booth. The council is also trying to team up with local businesses this year to offer promotions and deals to vendors. They have dispersed fliers to restaurants and hotels to “encourage them to send people out to take orders and deliver to the artists or have a special starving artist menu,” said council co-chairwoman Carol Morgan.

TELL TALES from 1A both days are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will feature kitchen items, appliances, tools, linens toys, knick-knacks, plants, gently used clothing and baked goods. nnn

The Peninsula Helping Hands lunch will be held at St. John’s in Marblehead this Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. for recently laid off and retired folks struggling on a fixed income. The free lunch is sponsored by the Peninsula churches and other groups.

Debris is piled up Tuesday in front of the home of Jami and Doug Wyatt. the Federal Emergency Management Agency is pending. The governor also issued an emergency declaration for Ottawa, Fulton and Wood counties. “We are making sure the State of Ohio is doing all it can to assist those in need,” Strickland said in a press release. “But because the need is so great, we requested that President Obama send support to help determine the totality of damages in the area.” Businesses, churches and individuals have been showing up since the

storm with donations of water, money and food. “We’re going to be here all week with the canteen truck,” said Maureen Saponari, Human Services Director for the Salvation Army’s Port Clinton Service Center. Hot meals, sack lunches, fruits, water and more are being provided to tornado victims and cleanup volunteers. “It is America at its best out here,” said Chris Galvin, director of Ottawa County branch of the United Way. “The volunteers just keep coming in.”

Md., along the eastern Atlantic coast through the Panama Canal, up the west coast of California to San Francisco. After a short time there, they were off to Pearl Harbor and eventually out to the South Pacific in service to the U.S. Navy where the crew of the Tupelo assisted during the battle for Guam. Boehler says he witnessed the construction of the airfield on Guam where Army and Navy CB engineers took the top off a mountain to create the runway surface. It was from that runway the U.S. aircraft began striking cities of Japan. Eventually, the Tupelo took Hal and his crewmembers back to San Francisco then back along the route from where he began his service he left service in 1946 at Baltimore. Upon leaving military service he became a journeyman carpenter and worked for Hossler Construction Co. in Tiffin. He is proud to have worked with Hossler on large construction jobs such as churches.

That stuff has been in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20 years.” Another gentlemen brought an old Fender guitar his father bought years ago. “Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.” The Roadshow expert that assisted him, made a few phone calls and a Veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for $5700.00.

The 73rd annual banquet was held at Catawba Island Club. Rev. Chris Young from St. John and St. Paul Lutheran churches gave the Invocation and Benediction; guest speaker was Judge Fritz Hany. Curt Laubner, president of the Marblehead Chamber, presented the 2010 Business of the Year award to The Victorian Inn owners, Wayne and Ann Duez. To be a Business of the Year Award Winner, you must be a Chamber member, have a minimum of 10 years in business and have community involvement or employee participation in community affairs.

PORT CLINTON — A new and unique addition to downtown is the quaint upscale antique, gifts and consignment shop located in the 100-year-old historic building at 125 Monroe St., behind the Coffee Express. The original location of the building was on Second Street facing the post office. It was relocated to the rear of the property to build the existing block building owned by Dave and Linda

Frederick. Erie Cottage Trading Co. proprietors, Doug and Toni Garrett and Debbie Coppeler, extend a warm invitation to stop in, browse and enjoy the unique concept of gently used antiques and recycled furnishings. The shop is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Tom Shirkey attends Jewelry artist comes to town insurance institute

Award-winning jewelry artist Ivy Solomon of Ivy WoodRose Jewelry will be at Ferguson Gallery from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 12. Ivy WoodRose Jewelry is entirely handmade: from the sterling silver frame to the inserts that capture intricate details with precious metal clay to coloring her pieces with pigmented epoxy resin. Solomon was awarded first place in the Saul Bell Design Award Competition in 2004 and 2006 in the PMC category. She was one of only 15 artists

whose work was featured at Tokyu Hands Creative Life Store Exhibition in Japan from 2004-2005. Her work was featured on the cover of Art Jewelry Magazine, November 2004 and Authority on Jewelry Manufacturing, June 2005. “It is the simple things of life that bring me the most joy and I feel strongly that quality surpasses quantity,” said Solomon. “The texture and feel of my work is very important. The perfect weight, silky smooth metal and comfort are critical to the joy of wearing jewelry. For this reason, extra care is spent on the fit and finish of each piece.” Ivy has created some new water-related pieces just for Ferguson Gallery. Questions on the event may be directed to gallery manager Kim Mazur at 419-734-0600. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Moves to help stay-at-home spouses

CIVFD’s Famous Barbeque Chicken

Not all households have two wage earners. By choice or circumstance, either you or your spouse may be out of the work force for an extended period of time. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make progress toward your joint financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement. It does mean, however, that you need to carefully review your situation and make the right financial moves. For starters, consider one of the best retirement-savings vehicles you have available: an Individual Retirement Account, or IRA. Even if your spouse isn’t earning income, he or she can open a “spousal IRA” to which you, as the income-earning spouse, can contribute. (Keep in mind, though, that you must file a joint tax return if you contribute to a spousal IRA.) Depending on your income level, you can designate a spousal IRA as either a traditional IRA, which grows on a tax-advantaged basis, or a Roth IRA, which can grow tax-free, provided your spouse has held the account for at least five years and is at least age 59½ before taking distributions. And a spousal IRA has the same contribution limits — $5,000 in 2010, or $6,000 if your

spouse is 50 or older — as a traditional or Roth IRA. Clearly, if you want to increase the cumulative opportunities for building tax-advantaged resources for both your retirements, a spousal IRA can be an attractive option. Furthermore, if your spouse allocates his or her IRA funds to investments that complement — rather than duplicate — those investments inside your IRA, the spousal IRA can prove to be a valuable tool for diversifying your overall holdings. While diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your portfolio. To help achieve this diversification between your IRA and the spousal IRA, you may want to work with a financial advisor. Another move you can make to help your stay-at-home spouse is easy to accomplish but also easy to overlook — namely, updating your beneficiary designations on your 401(k), IRA, other investment accounts, life insurance policies and all financial and legal documents. This step is particularly important if you’ve been divorced or widowed, and you want to be sure your stay-at-home spouse comes into possession of all the assets you had intended for him or

her.. Of course, in this day and age, “stay-athome” status can change quickly. If your spouse enters or re-enters the work force, COON you as a couple should consider adjusting your financial plans. Your spouse can continue contributing to the spousal IRA you’ve established, but he or she may now have other opportunities in which to save for retirement, such as a 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. And if your spouse has been out of the work force for a while, it will be important for him or her to contribute as much as possible to a retirement plan. In any case, whether your spouse stays at home or returns to the work force, you’ll want to be proactive in making sure he or she doesn’t get left behind on the road to financial security. nnn

The Beacon/Huron Hometown News


Get ready to go back in time MARBLEHEAD — The fourth annual Pioneer and Primitive Arts Festival will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 12-13. This free event is hosted by Fort Firelands RV Resort located at 5650 E. Harbor Road. Spend the day learning about pioneer ways and the primitive arts of times gone by. A full-scale replica of a frontier-style fort, Fort Firelands, sets a realistic tone for historical events. Rob “Armchair” Gerding and members of the Seneca Muzzleloaders, along with a host of independent reenactors, will be setting up a pioneer camp inside the fort. Authentic dress and methods will convey the way it was on the early frontier. Musicians, tomahawk throwing

and other demonstrations will be happening throughout both days. Now an Ohio Atl-atl Association sanctioned event, children and adults can try their hand at the Atl-atl. Used by the Paleo hunter 12,000 years ago, the Atl-atl is a device for throwing 6-7 foot darts that look like giant arrows. If you have never seen the Atl-atl you are in for an exciting experience. Flint Knappers will demonstrate the art of arrowhead and knife making while period vendors sell old-time wares. In addition to the on-site restaurant, flea market and shops, the tenants of Fort Firelands RV Resort will be having a park-wide yard sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
