Gov. Strickland fires first shot Gov. Ted Strickland fired the first shot Monday night officially kicking off the 2010 National Matches at Camp Perry. Elected officials, distinguished guests and even a cardboard cutout of the 200th RED HORSE Squadron’s Col. Mike Skomrock were in attendance to celebrate the beginning of the competition.
The U.S. Congress and President Theodore Roosevelt founded the National Matches in 1903 to foster national defense preparation through marksmanship competition. The National Matches consist of the National Trophy Rifle and Pistol Matches and Small Arms Firing Schools, which are mandated by federal law and gov-
erned by the CMP, and the NRA National Rifle and Pistol Championships, which are conducted by the NRA in conjunction with the National Matches. Overall, the matches bring more than 6,000 competitors, volunteers, vendors and family members to Camp Perry each summer. 2010 CMP National Trophy

2010 fair kicks off Monday
Day on the lake celebrates tourism, sport fishing Ohio’s first couple, Gov. Ted Strickland and First Lady Frances Strickland, were joined by members of the media, representatives of the tourism industry, elected officials and conservation leaders to draw attention to Lake Erie during the 31st annual Fish Ohio Day on Monday. For the first time in event history, both the governor and his first lady were in attendance, which added some goodnatured rivalry to the mix. No one went without bragging rights — Gov. Strickland caught one of the first walleye of the day and the first lady’s boat caught more fish than a number of other boats, including the governor’s boat. A total of 165 fish were caught. “She is a better fisherperson than I am,” the Governor said. Reeling in fish wasn’t the only focus of Monday’s events. Strickland touted the importance of taking care of Ohio’s great lake, which will continue to help strengthen the state’s economic outlook. After a half-day of fishing under excellent conditions, attendees gathered to applaud local tourism efforts as well as discuss immediate threats like Asian carp and responsible land use. “Ohio’s future can never be separated from the future of Lake Erie, Ohio’s greatest natural resource,” said Strickland. “Lake Erie is a great example of how the conservation of our resources and the growth of our economy can be compatible goals. “Fish Ohio Day helps us focus attention on all that the lake represents, all that it means to our economy and our quality of life, and its importance to Ohio’s future,” he said. Ohio’s 1.1 million anglers spend an estimated $1.1 billion on fishing-related expenditures annually. Anglers contribute to local economies through the purchase

Anglers support local jobs and wages, along with hotels, cottages and other lodging, marinas, charter boat services, restaurants, grocery stores, bait and tackle stores, marine suppliers and other local businesses. Their expenditures spur a $480 million sport fishing industry along Lake Erie and create nearly 10,000 jobs, according to the
American Sportfishing Association. “Statistics measure the benefits of the lake; but numbers don’t tell the whole story,” said ODNR Director Sean Logan. “Just as important as numbers, the memories we have of time spent on the lake, afternoons fishing or boating, and just the sights and sounds of Lake Erie build

Summer has officially arrived … It’s fair time! The fair is an exciting time for our community, but especially for youth involved in 4-H and/ or FFA, such as myself. I am Cobi Brough, the son of Dan and Jessica (Dewitz) Brough. I am 14 years old, a member of the Silver Spurs 4-H Club and looking forward to showcasing my projects at this year’s Ottawa County Junior Fair. I have put a lot of hard work and time into my projects this year, but it is a very rewarding experience. This year, I will be showing a horse, a beef feeder, a heifer, a market steer and a carcass steer. Like others, I am grateful for the memorable experiences and opportunities that the 4-H program pro-
vides. 4-H is a great program, but especially in economic times like we are currently facing, support of this program is very important. I greatly appreciate the support that you have shown in the past to this program. I am requesting that you continue to show that support so that myself and others can be afforded the same opportunities, enjoyment and memories of 4-H and the fair that our parents and grandparents still speak of today. The Junior Livestock Sale will take place on Friday, July 23, and the Back to the Farm Sale is on Saturday, July 24, both beginning at 10 a.m. I want to personally invite you to attend, and see the accomplishments of the youth of Ottawa County.

If you are unable to attend, but would still like to support the program, you can send a check directly to me made payable to: Ottawa County Fair Livestock Sale. I will see to it that you get your recognition. Again, your support is greatly appreciated. As you may already be aware, the 2010 Ottawa County Junior Fair will be July 19-25 and I hope to see you there! Please stop in and visit me at the main beef barn to see my livestock animals.

MIDDLE BASS ISLAND â€” Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Sean Logan joined local and state officials Friday to dedicate recent renovations to Middle Bass Island State Park marina and other facilities. The ribbon cutting ceremony was followed by a special recognition of former ODNR Director Sam Speck, who led the department from 1998-2006. â€œWhile we come here today to recognize those whose vision and hard work made this day possible, we need to bear in mind the real reason we build marinas, open parkland and advance the cause of wildlife,â€? said Logan. â€œWe will fight to conserve those things we know best. Love and respect for nature comes most naturally to those who have the most access to nature. This marina represents yet another doorway Ohioans now have to their natural world. â€? Renovations at Middle Bass Island began in January of 2001. Since then, several significant improvement and expansion projects have been completed over the past decade. An initial 50 new temporary docks were immediately installed for boaters, with many modified for permanent use. Public input was sought for development of the facilityâ€™s master plan, a conceptual document that provides the vision and flexibility for continuous improvement as resources allow. In 2006, a 20-site primitive campground was constructed, and in 2008, the large-scale marina entrance and basin improvements project â€” including reshaping of the marina basin, new entrance channel and revetments, floating dock anchorage piling and other improvements â€” was complete. The marina floating docks project was completed in 2009, which included installing shore-side utility connections and floating docks, for a total of 264 docks. A 100,000-gallon elevated water storage tank has been installed with water and sewer lines connecting to Lake Erie Utilities. Construction work slated for this summer includes staff housing along with a permanent shower and restroom building. Ongoing design projects include plans for the marina office and harbormaster building. Design services for the project were performed by BBC&M Engineering Inc., of Dublin; CTI Engineers, of Akron; Feinknopf, Macioce Schappa Architects, of Columbus; Fred Hunt, of Columbus; MSI Design, of Columbus; Poulos & Associates, of Sandusky; and Woolpert Consultants, of Cincinnati. Construction work and logistical support was performed by Bayes Inc., of Perrysburg; Gateway Tank, of Avon; Huffman Equipment Rental, of Eastlake; Kwest Group, of Port Clinton; Perram Electric, of Wadsworth; S.A. Comunale Co., of Fremont; and Speer Bros., of Sandusky. Other guest speakers for the ceremony included State Rep. Dennis Murray, Ohio State Parks Acting Chief John Hunter, ODNR Division of Watercraft Chief Pam Dillon and Jim Hodgson, chief of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Serviceâ€™s Wildlife and Sports Fish Restoration.

FISH from 1A quality of life and a sense of community. Fish Ohio Day is one way to remind people of all that is at stake in the Lake Erie watershed.â€? Fifteen charter captains from the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association volunteered their boats so state leaders, members of the media, representatives of the tourism industry and conservation leaders had an opportunity to experience fishing the lakeâ€™s Western Basin. All of the participating boats brought in fish, making it one of the more successful Fish Ohio days in recent history. The 495 pounds of fish caught at this event were donated to the Victory Temple Food Bank. Located in Sandusky, this food bank serves families from the Port Clinton and Sandusky area.
