Algea in lake a growing threat By ANGIE ADAIR ZAM Editor In recent years, Lake Erie has seen an increase in algae, particularly blue-green algae capable of producing toxins. Last year the Harmful Algal Blooms kept people out of the water and thanks to record levels of nutrients pouring into the lake, this year isn’t looking much better. According to Dr. Jeffrey Reutter, Direc-

tor of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program, the blue-green algae can cause nerve issues, stomach problems, rashes, tingly fingers, numb lips and asthma-like symptoms for those who come in contact with it. Those effects are dependent on the level of toxins present in the water and the age and health of the person that comes in

Kelleys Island swim benefits kids One of the nicest annual events here on the North Coast is the Kelleys Island benefit swim. Each summer for nearly 20 years, Jeni Hammond and Cindra Mielke take on this swim to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. This year the water was rough on Sunday, Aug. 7, but they made it from Gem Beach to Kelleys Island in 4 hours and 20 minutes. Their wish kids this year are Marianna, 8, from Bellevue, and Randy, 6, from Sandusky. Both will be headed to a Florida Theme Park thanks to the efforts of these great gals. They are pictured here with some of their recent “wish kids” … Daniel from Gibsonburg and Taylor from Marblehead. They are still






As a result of the latest budget signed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich, free community newspapers such as The Beacon in Port Clinton and Huron Hometown News in Huron will be able to carry official “Public Notice” advertising. Starting September 29, 2011, free community papers will finally be “legal” for the publication of legal notices. A key provision in the new Ohio budget reformed the legal notice process. Among the significant changes were modern eligibility requirements allowing placement free community papers like The Beacon and Huron Hometown News as well as expanding visibility online. Going forward, you will no longer need to pay a price per copy to read important government notices which have already been paid for with tax dollars.


State indicators are based on state assessments, attendance and graduation rates. For grades three through eight and 10, at least 75 percent of the students tested must score proficient or higher to meet the test indicator; for 11th grade graduation tests, 85 percent must score proficient. Other requirements include 85 percent attendance rate and 90 percent graduation rate. • B-C-S Schools met 26 of 26 indicators • Danbury met 25 of 26 indicators falling just shy of the 75 percent requirement for fifth-grade math scores with 73.2. • Port Clinton City Schools met 22 of 26 indicators falling short in the mathemat-



Jenni Hammond and Cindra Mielke recently completed their annual Kelleys Island Swim from Gem Beach to Kelley’s. When they finished, they were greeted by a couple of past Children’s Miracle Network beneficiaries from last year’s swim, including a youngster from Marblehead, Taylor Wilhite.

leading me to believe if I want a letter to get published I better not say anything negative about our administration, the tourist, or the business people. I am sorry I have not been writing the type of letters you approve of, you see, I foolishly thought sound off was a column where people could “sound off,” a column where they could question the ones they voted into office, a column where they could voice their own opinions. I had no idea it was a column for praises and thank yous only. There are more than a few citizens that want my opinions, such as what do I think of the 6” grass and weed ordinance. I am all for it, because now that our administration has the authority, I believe we will see them use it, but not on some citizen that left his grass get 8” long, or an elderly

couple that is unable to mow their grass and can not afford to hire it done as often as they would like to. I believe our administration should, can and will help these citizens by getting volunteers to cut their grass when they get a little behind. They have no trouble getting volunteers to make things nicer for the tourists, so I can not believe they will have a problem getting volunteers to help our needy citizens after all, isn’t the citizens of Port Clinton the ones our administration cares the most about? Well, aren’t they? If our administration is really serious about the grass and weeds ordinance, and wants to convince the citizens they intend to enforce it than they should first make an example of the big offenders. I would like to know how our administration could bill a citizen a minimum of $170.00 if his grass gets over 6” long, when his neighbor has weeds and brush over 10” high. Yes I am for this ordinance as long as it applies to everyone and not just the homeowner. Citizens be heard. Bob Walls Port Clinton

Monument commemorates 198th anniversary of Battle of Lake Erie Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will commemorate the 198th anniversary of the “Battle of Lake Erie” during Historic Weekend Sept. 9-11. “Historic Weekend is a time to remember and honor the brave sailors who despite being outnumbered defeated the British in a pivotal battle that shaped the future of the United States of America,” said Blanca Alvarez Stransky, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Superintendent. “To help us honor this important moment in American history, we have invited living history interpreters to present a variety of entertaining and inspirational programs for children and adults alike.” The weekend-long historic celebration begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, with the “Sunset Flag Retirement Ceremony” where Boy Scouts of America, American Legion Post 459 and National Park Service Rangers will demonstrate the proper proce-

dures for retiring flags flown at the park. Since the flags from Canada and Great Britain are also flown at the park, as a symbol of the lasting international peace between the United States and these two countries, these flags will also be rightfully honored and retired. This year’s Historic Weekend ceremony beginning at 3 p.m. will showcase the Native American’s role in the War of 1812 and the Battle of Lake Erie. Dr. Barbara Mann, assistant professor at the University of Toledo, Honors College, will be the guest speaker at the ceremony. Mann has written nine books on Native Americans, including “Land of the Three Miamis: A Traditional Narrative of the Iroquois in Ohio”. Capt. William Johnson, commanding officer of the USS Lake Erie, will provide special remarks at this year’s event. The USS Lake Erie is a Ticonderoga-class cruiser based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. “Historic Weekend is a unique op-

portunity to re-evaluate the great fortunes that has been bestowed upon us as Americans. It is a time to rejoice in a strong and free America and to reflect on the value of life in a country that is peaceful, united, and surrounded by strong allies,” said Stransky. This year’s festivities include historic demonstrations, an ice cream social, Historic Weekend parade, crafts and children activities like “A Sailor’s Life Then and Now” featuring the crew of the U.S.S. Lake Erie and 1812 sailors. Entertainment includes a performance by the Toledo Symphony at 6:30 p.m. For information about Historic Weekend, call Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial at 419285-2184.

The Homes on the Tour are: • Jeff and Carol Morgan, 504 E. Perry St • Mike and Bonnie Elias, 118 Fulton St. • Duane and Martha Snyder, 426 E. Second St. • Barb Ritter, 520 E. Second St. Tickets may be purchased ahead of time at Bassett’s Market, Mary’s Blossom Shop or Rudder’s for $15. They may also be purchased the day of the event. For questions, call Jennifer Straziuso at 419-271-6015. The homes: • 502 E. Perry St. — This historic Perry Street home has captured the eyes of many for years. The home takes on the style of Richardsonian Romanesque and Beaux Arts Mix. Blueprints for this home are dated 1897, the completion date is listed as 1903, and the roof tile date is 1901. The Morgan home was built by George Oliver True. The True family also lived here before the Morgan’s. True passed this home on to his son Oliver True. In 1960’s Oliver True renovated the home into three apartments living in the downstairs and renting the two upstairs apartments. There are stories of the third floor being used as a basketball court, but there is no evidence of any hoops being hung. The Morgan children used to eagerly clean the at-

tic every August preparing for their Halloween party. So much has been done from electrical, plumbing, heating, wall placement, total redo of columns and front porch, roofs, copper wrapping of parapets, and a redo of the pink kitchen. You name it, the Morgan’s have done it. Over the years, the Morgan’s have done their best to restore this historically rich house into a home. They have put love, sweat, and money into this treasure for future generations. • 118 Fulton St.— This home was built and moved to its current location in 1858 by the Kelley family. They moved it when they changed the path of the river in order to be closer to the river and the horse barn. It is referred to as the Moon House. Judge Moon had lived there previously. The current owner, Mike had his prom picture taken on the current staircase in the home. He was friends with Paul Moon, who lived in the home at the time. Mike and Bonnie are the seventh owners of the home. There are many original parts to this home, including the summer kitchen, dining room, living room, the entire upstairs and the fireplace. Mike has converted the fireplace into a gas fireplace recently. Down from the laundry room there is a basement where the wall is cemented in. Rumor has it that this may have been a passageway for the Underground Railroad. Mike and Bonnie enjoy spending their time on the screened in porch that faces Fulton Street and has excellent views of Lake Erie. As you tour this home, take note of the faces on the trees in the front of their home that can only

be seen from inside the house. • 426 E. Second St. — This beautiful Victorian style home was built back in 1890. It is believed to have been built by the Anna York Family. There is also rumor that it was built for a doctor and his family to live in. The Snyder’s home has been well preserved by the current owners. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. Previous owners took down a wall upstairs which opened up one of the bedrooms into a television/ sitting area. There was also a spiral staircase that was added by previous owners. This staircase led way to a remodeled attic to make room for additional bedroom and sitting on the 3rd floor. Duane and Martha are currently renovating rooms by pulling up carpet to refinish the original hardwood floors. This home has been very well taken care of throughout the years. It is a labor of love that the Snyder’s continue to restore little by little. • 520 E. Second St. — This 2,100-square-foot historic home was built in 1913.

Port Clinton Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester had some help while campaigning doorto-door on Monday afternoon in Port Clinton. She visited the home of Andrew Johnson on 10th Street and talked about local issues important to him and his family. Pictured here are State Rep. Randy Gardner (left), State Sen. Mark Wagner, Tester and Johnson.

Fifth District Congressman Bob Latta proved that he still has a lot of friends in the 9th District. He brought the U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, with him for a fundraiser Monday evening at Catawba Island Club. Latta and Cantor both spoke about the importance of creating jobs in the private sector and getting Federal spending under control.

The wines we sourced from this deal make up a considerable part of the repositioning of a particular ultra-premium Zinfandel and Zin-based blend producer that was sold a year or so ago. As part of the deal one of the brands was discontinued altogether and we purchased all of those wines and others from the flagship brand as they sought to maintain the high-dollar price point by reducing inventory. This is a classic deal for Cameron Hughes Wine but it’s also a one-time deal as they severely cut back the 2010 contracts, so grab what you can of these incredible values.

Nor’Easter Club under new ownership August 18 marked a day of change at the Nor’Easter Club. A purchase agreement for the club, located at 2801 Nor’Easter Cover, Drive, Port Clinton, was established in early 2010 between seller and long-time club owner, William VanDerGiessen and Rick Stechschulte, member of the club and long-time northwest Ohio entrepreneur. That agreement was finalized on Aug. 18 making Stechschulte the sole owner of the club. In comments about the acquisition, Stechschulte thanked the developers of the club, previous ownership and managers, and the long list of the loyal members for their stewardship and support of the club over its 30-plus-year history. He further wished

VanDerGiessen all the best as he moved on to other pursuits. Stechschulte commented on the extensive renovations, estimated at more than $500,000, he’s undertaken at the club during the 18 months transition to his full ownership. He also outlined his commitment for continued re-investment in club facilities, in his effort to make Nor’Easter Club the premier members’-only yacht and dining club on Ohio’s Lake Erie shore. In closing, Stechschulte said he would be remiss if he didn’t take a moment to single out and thank designer Lisa Koehler for her tireless energy, patience and expertise in

helping with the club plans and renovations. Her keen eye and design sense has created the new Nor’Easter Club experience. The club was established in 1978 as a private alternative to the busy high-season traffic that more public venues suffer on and around Catawba Island. Club facilities include the clubhouse with its three dining areas, lounge and outdoor deck; Olympic-size outdoor pool with large deck and pavilion snack bar; outdoor casual dining; new fitness center; and dockage with easy access to and from Lake Erie. For information about the club, call 419-797-4466 or email

Relotto started this organization to help women succeed, personally and professionally.

This is what Dames Bond is all about,” said Relotto. In an effort to take Dames Bond to a national level, the first chapter outside of Central Ohio will represent women living in Huron, Erie, and Ottawa counties under the direction of Joy Skarupa.

“Our goal is to make sure women across the nation are given the opportunity to afford an exceptional networking community, where their success is our main priority,” said Skarupa. Women from all northwest ohio counties are welcome to attend our events. Dames Bond, recognized by Forbes and ForbesWoman as one of the “Top 10 Career Sites for Women In business,” is the first networking community to actively market the business and expertise of its members, to provide common ground where women can connect and share and to offer an affordable marketing and advertising outlet where consumers can find women who represent a variety of industries.

Free community papers will be making the case to local government entities that our competitive rates and strong loyal readership should earn our papers the people’s business. Publishers of free community papers urge their readers to contact their local officials, thus letting them hear from their constituents. If this happens, positive change in public notice will surely take place. Schaffner Publications, Inc. publishes two weekly newspapers, The Beacon based in Port Clinton as well as the Huron Hometown News. It also publishes the North Coast Business Journal, serving the small business interests in Erie, Ottawa, Huron, Sandusky and Seneca Counties. John Schaffner, publisher of the three publications and President of Schaffner Publications, Inc., began his career as General Manager of the Port Clinton Press in 1977, following a short career in radio that began in 1969. He is a 1973 graduate of Bowling Green State University with a major in Radio/TV. Schaffner began publishing The Beacon in February of 1983, and talks about the growth in the Free Community Paper industry. “With the onset of the Internet, many paid subscription newspapers have been hard hit, as readers have moved from the printed page to the newspaper website. Free Community Papers have not been as affected. Our papers have active and lively Internet websites, and we haven’t lost any newspaper circulation since the basis of free papers is saturation circulation and high readership.” The latest audit backs up that claim. According to the Circulation Verification Council, an agent for the Mid Atlantic Community Papers Association classified network (MacNet), 98 percent of people in the newspapers’ communities indicate they receive their papers and 78 percent say that they read through those papers every week. The three publications boast circulation numbers more than 30,000 with more than two readers per copy. So, while paid circulation papers are suffering from dramatic readership and circulation losses, free community papers, like The Beacon and Huron Hometown News, are actually thriving. There’s a

areas where there is floating scum or the water is generally discolored. Use common sense – when in doubt, stay out! • Immediately rinse family members, pets and yourself after swimming in natural waters. HABs cannot always be seen, smelled or tasted. • Ingesting any source of untreated water is unsafe, so never allow your family members or pets to drink lake or river water. Although algae sometimes forms a layer of scum on top of the water, Reutter warns that this isn’t always the case. “We’re having an algal bloom right now,” he said last week. But added that high winds had churned up the algae mixing it in and making it less visible. One major cause of the HABS is nutrient loading. The nutrients, namely phosphorus, come from a variety of sources including fertilizer, manure and poor sewage treatment practices and are carried into the lake through sedimentation, runoff and open lake disposal of dredging materials. “We have a whole lot of land draining into a small amount of water,” said Reutter. “And we are going to drink that water.” Ruetter spoke to a group of area farmers last week during the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District’s Lake Erie Ag Tour. He explained the direct correlation between the amount of phosphorus and the amount of algae and prompted those farmers to look at their practices and be proactive. But it isn’t just farmers who can make a difference. The Ohio Sea Grant’s factsheet on HABs suggests: • Using lawn and plant fertilizers sparingly • Regularly checking and maintaining systems • Preventing surface runoff • Not allowing large concentrations of Canada Geese to set up residence. Their waste can cause excessive nutrients to enter waters. • Maintaining native plants along the shoreline throughout the watershed to act as filters for runoff.

HAB Advisories The State has developed standards for posting of Ohio Recreational Use HAB Advisories. The advisories are: • An algae bloom advisory will be posted for a recreational contact area once an algal bloom has been identified and the State has confirmed it is a harmful algal bloom capable of producing toxin. The public would be advised not to ingest water and avoid contact with surface scum. • The public health advisory would be posted when tests conclude microcystin levels are at least six parts per billion (ppb). At this point, the public would be advised that swimming and wading are not recommended, water should not be swallowed and surface scum should be avoided. • A no contact advisory would recommend the public to avoid all contact with the water at that location. A no contact advisory would be posted if test results show microcystin levels at least 20 ppb and there has been a report of human illness or pet death. If a no contact advisory is posted for a recreational contact area, the State may sample the lake to determine if an open-water no contact advisory should be posted. Once an advisory is posted, the State will periodically sample until microcystin is below acceptable thresholds or the end of the beach season in Ohio.

Tools for School serves 607 students in Ottawa County Every year, since 2002, The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit has offered a school supply assistance program (Tools for School) in August. This year the program served 607 local students, up from last year’s 595, with school supplies and a new backpack. Since this program was completely funded by donations, it was only made possible through the generosity of our local businesses and residents. The overwhelming success was also due to our local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds including The Harry Stensen Memorial Fund and The Ottawa County Community Foundation Grant. Thank you for all who have contributed funds, supplies and volunteer hours to this

program. We could not continue to help our children without your support. The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit currently has additional supplies and book bags available to anyone who is still in need of these items. For questions, to call the office at 419732-2769 and speak with Director Maureen Saponari.

The book club, made of Port Clinton City School staff members past and present, includes Jody Gahn (left), Barb Cammann, Nancy Kreulen Wargo, Karen Shifflet, Brenda Hetrick, Jane Taylor, Diane Rosiar, Rosemarie Kuharick, Molly Sass and Donna Chudy.

Practicing what they preach

Brand new backpacks and bags of school supplies fill up the floors of the Salvation Army office in the Sutton Center during Tools for Schools distribution.

number, email address, instrument and graduating year. Please indicate if you do not have an instrument and every attempt will be made to secure one for you. Contact Gluth at or 419-7322102, ext. 242, to participate. More details can be found at the school district website, under “news.”

Higher education Ohio Northern Aaron C. Riechman, son of Curt and Traci Riechman, of Oak Harbor, has enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences

REPORT from 1A ics category for sixth-, seventh- and eighthgraders with 70.5 percent, 73.2 percent and 73 percent respectively. Also below the requirement was eight-grade science with a score of 57.4 percent.

Performance Index According to the report cards, the Performance Index reflects the achievement of every student enrolled for the full academic year. The weighted average includes all tested subjects, grades and untested students and can be compared across years to show achievement trends within the district. Results scale from 0 to 120. • B-C-S: 100.8, up from 97.9 for 20092010 • Danbury: 100.8, up from 98.6 for 20092010 • PC: 96.2, up from 94.6 for 2009-2010

Value-added measure This rating represents the progress made since last school year. There are three possible scores: above expected growth, met expected growth or below expected growth.

at Ohio Northern University for the 201112 school year. He will be a sophomore majoring in physics. Riechman is a graduate of Oak Harbor High School. All three districts met expected growth.

Ask any teacher the most important thing a child can do to increase their success in school and they will say, “read.” A group of Port Clinton City School District teachers and staff, both past and present, have been having fun with reading as well by forming a book club. This summer they selected the novel, “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, which is also the source for the movie now in theaters. On Aug. 17, they met to discuss the book, however, creative teachers can’t simply meet and discuss the book. They decided each should bring a recipe from the book they read set in Mississippi in 1962. Jane Taylor hosted the event and made southern fried chicken, Jody Gahn, Bataan Secretary, brought the chocolate pie and others brought various sides such as collard greens, bean salad, tea sandwiches and iced tea. Nancy Kreulen-Wargo, Title I reading teacher, even dressed the part as a southern housewife. An interesting twist since in the classroom Kreulen-Wargo has her students dress in character for Readers Theater and act out a story. After dinner and discussion, they all went to Sandusky to watch the movie and were pleased with how closely the storyline followed the novel. The book club was formed just more than a year ago and has been meeting every four to six weeks. Members of the group suggest books and then set the deadline to discuss the book. Jody Gahn said the book club “has inspired me to read books I normally wouldn’t.” They have read a variety of subjects and various authors. At another book club meeting they invited fellow faculty member, Ty Roth, author of “So Shelly” to meet and join in on the discussion after reading his novel.

Adequate Yearly Progress This federal measure requires that each school meet goals set for reading and mathematics proficiency and participation, attendance rate and graduation rate. The goals are applied to a variety of groups based on race, ability and economics. If any group falls below the goal, the entire district does not meet the AYP standard. Not meeting AYP for consecutive years will have both federal and state consequences. All three districts met AYP standards.

School designations Each school also earns a designation in the report card process. • Excellent with Distinction: R.C. Waters Elementary (B-C-S) • Excellent: Carroll Elementary, Oak Harbor Middle and High schools (B-CS); Danbury Elementary and High schools (Danbury); and Jefferson Middle and Port Clinton High schools (PC) • Effective: Graytown and Rocky Ridge elementaries (B-C-S) and Danbury and Port Clinton middle schools.

Redskins off to another fast start By JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher The Port Clinton Redskins launched their season on the road on Friday and got going early and late on the way to a 28-12 win over Woodmore. Statistically, it was an extremely impressive performance offensively as they rolled up nearly 400 yards on the ground. Diante Laurel, who played hurt most of the way, was the big horse for the Redskins with over 200 yards rushing in the game on 24 carries. Andrew Leidheiser got the start for the Redskins at quarterback and acquitted himself very well…no turnovers, throwing for one touchdown and rushing for two. He also ran the ball for nearly 100 yards. “We played as well as we could on offense,” said PC Coach Toby Hammond on Tuesday. “We told our kids that our best defense would be our offense in that we had to keep the ball away from them.” That happens when your offense is chewing up the clock with a ground game that goes up and down the field, which is exactly what Hammond’s team did. Hammond had big-time praise for his veteran offensive line…Cory Colston, Rob Beck, Nick Leone, Chounard Stransky and Ben Petersen. “This is the best o-line we have had since I’ve been here,” Hammond said, adding “many returning starters there.

Up next • 7 p.m. Sept. 2 — John Marshall at home

On the down side, Diante Laurel had a number of leg problems, from a cramp to a twisted ankle but played through it. Said Hammond, “X-Rays were negative but we’ll see about how he feels on Friday.” The Redskins play John Marshall from Cleveland in their home opener at True Lay Stadium Friday night (games now start at 7 p.m.). John Marshall pounded on Toledo Scott last Friday and will bring some things the Redskins don’t normally see. “They are athletic and fast,” Hammond said about Friday’s opponent. “Those are things that we just can’t simulate in practice.”

Rockets soar past Blue Devils 23-10 By J. PATRICK EAKEN If there was ever any doubt about how good Oak Harbor football might be this year, it got answered on Springfield’s turf in Holland on Friday night. The Rockets put up 339 total yards and 17 first downs en route to a 23-10 nonconference win over the Blue Devils, a team that is usually a contender in the Northern Lakes League. Oak Harbor running back Mark Konieczny rushed for 206 yards on 33 carries and one touchdown in the Rocket victory. Meanwhile, quarterback Brian Mallernee completed 9-of-15 passes for 65 yards with one touchdown and one interception plus he added 61 yards rushing on 10 carries.

• 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9 — Genoa at home

PC’s Diante Laurel rushed for more than 200 yards in 24 carries Friday night in the win against Woodmore.

Helping the Rockets was a 75-yard kickoff return by Austin Weigand and a 76yard return by Konieczny. Springfield got on the board first when Jared Williams ran for a 56-yard touchdown run with 8:18 remaining in the first quarter. Devon Burns added the conversion kick to give the Blue Devils an early 7-0 lead. But Oak Harbor responded, scoring on a 48-yard touchdown run by Konieczny with 2:58 left in the first. J.J. Rathbun added the conversion kick and the score was tied at 7-all. In the second quarter, Rathbun booted a 26-yard field goal, putting the Rockets up

WARNING Danbury kicks off with a win



BY J. PATRICK EAKEN Danbury football opened a 30-0 lead over Fostoria St. Wendelin and then held on for a 43-24 victory over the Mohawks at Fostoria Memorial Stadium Saturday night. It is the first time in 13 years Danbury football has started the season 1-0. “I learned that these guys are committed and they knew what was at stake,” said Danbury coach Tim Heffernan. “It’s been 13 years…and some of these guys were barely alive when that happened, so it’s a big night for us.” Led by returning All-Ohio senior quarterback Lucas Kennedy, the Lakers amassed 328 yards on the ground and 132 in the air for 460 total yards. “It feels great. Coach has been talking about how we haven’t started off 1-0 in 13 years. It’s great being part of this team and on top tonight, but there are a lot of things we have to work on,” Kennedy said. “We gave up 24 points and we let them hang around a lot. If we want to have a winning season, we can’t do that. We have to shut out teams early.” Kennedy completed 7-of-14 passes in the first half to account for all the Laker’s yardage through the air. But, he threw two interceptions and no completions in six second half attempts as the Mohawks found their offense and defense. Coach Heffernan blames his team’s execution for its poor second half passing. “We saw some things defensively

that we thought we could take advantage of and we were not able to execute that well in the passing game,” Heffernan said. “Clearly, that’s definitely something we need to work on. You know, its first game mistakes — definitely something we need to fix.” Kennedy also ran for 164 yards on 18 carries, but had trouble with cramps throughout the game. Despite the humidity, he still contributed 296 total yards to Danbury’s cause. “I kept cramping up in both of my calves. It was terrible,” Kennedy said. “We definitely have to get in better shape. I know I was tired in the first quarter and everybody else was dogging it. We’ve got to play better than that.” Heffernan said, “He (Kennedy) wasn’t hurt at all — just a little sluggish. It’s game one and everybody seemed to be cramping up. That was a sort of strange phenomenon, but he was not hurt in any way.” Danbury had five other running backs contribute in a big way, only one of them was not exactly a back. Big 6-foot-1, 214 pound No. 53 team captain Justin Tester, normally a senior offensive tackle, played “Refrigerator” on a fourth down fake punt play, stiff arming and barreling over one Mohawk defender on his way to a 35-yard gain and a first down. Sophomore tailback Cody German had 77 yards on 10 carries, freshman receiver Taylon Molnar carried the ball nine times for 31 yards, junior wingback Brandon Bahnsen had 20 yards on eight carries, and sophomore fullback Cooper Eller had 15 yards on four attempts.

German was Kennedy’s most popular receiver, catching four passes for 51 yards. Senior wide receiver Cory Schenk had two catches for 77 yards and Bahnsen had one catch for four yards. It took Danbury four possessions to score. On the first, the Lakers reached the FSW 11-yard line, but stalled on a fourth-and-7. The next two saw lost fumbles, including the first one recovered by the FSW coach’s (Bill Hrabak) son, freshman defensive end Zac Hrabak. Finally, on possession No. 4, which started in the second quarter, the Lakers found paydirt. A seven-play drive was capped by a three-yard run from the four-yard line by Cooper, but the fullback fumbled the ball into the end zone where it was recovered by freshman wide receiver Caleb Gerber for six points. Kennedy ran the twopoint conversion to put Danbury up 8-0 with 8:43 remaining in the first half. FSW sent a snap over the punter’s head on its ensuing possession and Danbury took over at the Mohawk 17-yard line. After a 12-yard pass from Kennedy to German, Kennedy ran over a few people on his way to a five-yard touchdown. Kennedy completed a conversion pass to Bahnsen, giving the Lakers a 16-0 lead. After the kickoff, a Laker interception gave Danbury the football at the FSW 9-yard line. Four plays later, German ran for six points from two yards out with 6:37 left in the first half. Kennedy’s conversion pass to Bahnsen was complete, but FSW junior defensive back Austin Reinhart


ROCKETS from 1B 10-7 with 7:41 remaining until halftime. The three-point lead stood until intermission. Neither team scored in the third, but the fourth quarter became a slugfest with the game on the line. Oak Harbor scored first on a six-yard TD pass from Brian Mallernee to Joey Mallernee just four seconds into the fourth period but the conversion kick failed, leaving Oak Harbor with a 16-7 lead. Burns brought Springfield back to within a touchdown by kicking a 25-yard field goal with 4:14 remaining in the game. But Oak Harbor put the game on ice when Brian Mallernee went on an 8-yard touchdown jaunt with 1:31 left. Rathbun added the conversion kick and the scoring ended there. For Oak Harbor, Mitch Hayslett had four years on one rushing attempt, and Alex Bergman had one carry for three yards. Austin Weigand was Brian Mallernee’s favorite receiver, catching four passes for 33 yards. Konieczny and Greg Haar each had a catch good for 13 yards, Jamie Balboa had a catch for four yards, and Hayslett had one reception that netted a minus-four yards. Springfield had nine first downs, 126 yards rushing and 98 passing. The Blue Devils punted five times, Oak Harbor punted only once. Oak Harbor completed 5-of-12 third downs, Springfield 3-of-10 and the two teams combined had three fourth down conversion attempts and could not convert any. For Springfield, Clay Fink completed 6-of-123 passes for 98 yards, including a 19-yard completion to Williams. Williams caught three passes for 41 yards, Blake Rudolph had one catch for 36 yards, Braxton Hayes had a reception for 13 yards, and Ben Steedman caught one pass for eight yards. Rushing, the Blue Devil’s Kyle Ruiz carried the ball 12 times for 51 yards, Williams had eight carries for 47 yards plus he had a 40-yard kickoff return, Fink had nine carries for 26 yards, and Rudolph had one carry for two yards. Defensively, Marquan Hodge had an interception for Springfield. Oak Harbor’s defense was led by Adam Losie, who had two solo tackles, one tackle for a loss, one sack, and seven assists, and Allen Boss, who had four solos and five assists. Joey Mallernee had two solos, six assists, one sack and recovered a fumble and Austin Weigand had three solos and five assists. Jamie Balboa had three solos, three assists, and forced a fumble, and Alex Bergman had three solos and three assists. Brian Mallernee had one solo and four assists.

DANBURY from 2B made the tackle one yard short of the end zone. Early in the second half, Danbury tacked on two more points when it pushed FSW’s offense to inside its own 10-yard line, and then on a punt attempt the Mohawk snap went over the kicker’s head and out of the end zone. After FSW punted following the safety, it took a 51-yard touchdown scamper by Kennedy to put Danbury up 30-0. Then, the Mohawks found their mojo. It started when Reinhart returned the kickoff 80 yards for a TD with 8:01 remaining in the third quarter. After a failed pass on the conversion, Danbury still led 30-6. Only 32 seconds showed on the clock in the third period when FSW junior quarterback Zach Miller threw a 42-yard completion to senior wide receiver Alex Shontz, setting up a six-yard touchdown run by Reinhart. Another failed pass on the conversion left the score 30-12. After the kickoff, a Kennedy pass was in-


tercepted by Reinhart, who returned the football 14 yards to the FSW 39. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Miller threw a 60-yard TD bomb to Reinhart, leading him perfectly. Now we’re at 30-18 with 11:50 still left to play. But Danbury went on an 8-play, 65-yard drive, highlighted by a 36-yard run by German in which Reinhart made the TD-saving tackle. Four plays later, Kennedy scored from 12 yards, putting Danbury back up by three touchdowns, 36-18, with 8:35 remaining. FSW went on one final 12-play, 59 yard drive with Miller scoring on a QB sneak from one yard out with 3:23 left in the game. Danbury came right back on its next possession, capped by Kennedy’s 38-yard TD run with 1:52 remaining. A conversion kick gave the game its final score — 43-28. This Friday night Danbury hosts the Woodward Polar Bears out of the Toledo City League. Woodward lost its season opener, 46-0, to Sheffield Brookside last week.
