Tell Tales

Success! A lot of people have complimented me over the past few months for my weight loss. Yes, I dropped about 40 pounds. When asked how, I cannot help but note that much of the credit was due to a commitment to hypnosis therapy. I got to know David Prudhomme through sailing and other local networking opportunities. I have struggled with my weight all my life, so I thought I would give it a try. I don’t know if that was the only reason for my weight loss, but I believe it was a major contributor. David is having an Open House this weekend at his new office at Grande Lake, just east of the Buckeye Boulevard stoplight. Hours are 1 to 5 p.m.

Sound Off Thank you United Way would like to extend an enormous “thank you to our community” for another successful Gem Beach Rocks event! Many of you came to Gem Beach to enjoy a beautiful day filled with great music, food, drinks, fun and friends. We were able to raise more than $45,000 for the annual campaign — money that stays in Ottawa County. This is vital to our work in education, income and health, and also allows us to respond to disasters as we did this spring when the tornadoes struck our area. This day could not have been possible without the hard work of our volunteers. The Gem Beach Rocks committee put in more hours and commitment than I would even know how to begin counting … so a very special thank you to Kim Godfrey, Rose Markel, Carrie McGlothlin,

Ed Markel, Steve Lovitt, Megan Lovitt, Tom Halsey and Amy Below for all of their dedication and hard work. Also, thank you to the more than 200 event volunteers without whom the day would not have been possible. Last, a huge thank you to our title sponsors: FriendShip Food Stores, BAS Broadcasting, The Beacon/Minuteman Press, WPCR Port Clinton Radio, Croghan Colonial Bank and Gem Beach Marina who continue to provide consistent support for this event. We cannot thank these businesses enough for their dedication to United Way and to our community. Thank you to everyone who supported and attended Gem Beach Rocks … see you next year! Christine Galvin Director United Way in Ottawa County

Blood drive The Red Cross Blood Drive on Sept. 11, was held at the Catawba Island Township Community Center. The blood drive was a great success.

They are Alice Holly, Toni De Luca, Claudia Kiesolhorst, Anne Belden, Dale Dietrich, Mike Minor, Margie Steller, Sue Dole and Linda Snyder. With the help of these volunteers, we were able to have a very smooth and successful drive. Thank you for your time and caring. Most of all, I would like to thank the fine people who gave up their Saturday morning to donate their blood, the gift of life! Edwina Minor, Red Cross Chairperson

Richmond offers anniversary prints MARBLEHEAD — Immortalized in song by balladeer Gordon Lightfoot, the fate of the Edmund Fitzgerald and its crew has attracted more widespread attention than any of the other thousands of shipwrecks recorded on the Great Lakes. The 13,000-ton ore freighter and its entire crew mysteriously and suddenly disappeared during a violent November storm on Lake Superior 35 years ago. After gashing its underbelly on a shoal, the captain made a command decision to race towards Whitefish Point in order to save his ship and crew. With less than 15 miles to go, the first wave loomed 30 feet high, striking the stern, rolling over the after deckhouse and producing a shudder of steel plates throughout the ship. Like a 729-foot long whale, the ore boat slipped almost silently beneath the

surface, its deck lights still blazing. In their steel tomb at the bottom of the “Big Lake,” in never-ending darkness, the crew of the steamer Edmund Fitzgerald repose in endless sleep, safe at last from the “Gales of November.” In tribute to that fateful day, the Richmond Gallery is presenting 35 Master Canvas Giclées of Ben Richmond’s painting “The Gales of November.” Offered on a firstcome, first-serve basis, each uniquely sized Master Canvas (image is 22 5/8 inches by 34 ½ inches) will be personally embellished and textured as well as signed and numbered by the artist. To order, stop by Richmond Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., call 800-441-5631 or visit www.richmondgallery. com.

The equinox passes —Autumn is here

Well, we’re now past the autumnal equinox, one of the two times of the year when the sun crosses the plane of the equator and day and night are equal. Make that “almost equal.” This year the equinox took place on 11:13 p.m. E.T. on Wednesday, Sept. 22. A full moon was visible on that day. Traditionally the “harvest moon” is the full moon closest to the equinox and, since it happened on the same day, that is about as close as you can get! However, because of other factors, the day when the hours of daylight and night are equal come a little before the vernal (spring) equinox and a little after the fall equinox. (However on those days the sun does rise due east and sets due west.) For more interesting facts about the two days of equinox each year, look up “autumnal equinox” on the Internet and read about it. There is lots of interesting data there about the calendar, too.

Now part of the reason that I’ve been interested in the equinox is that my son’s birthday is Sept. 21 and so he and I have always talked about it. This year, it was great because we were celebrating his birthday one day late (Sept. 22) with a cookout at his home. Burgers, hot dogs, sausages were on the menu and we were “dining al fresco,” an uppity way of saying we were simply outside on his deck. The moon started rising, full and pale, as we finished eating. Lethargic, we sat and watched it get brighter. It became more interesting as it turned silver and yellow-gold in the heavens. It truly looked like the Harvest Moon that it was. After a short time we were so intrigued with it that we decided to look at it through a telescope and that was fun, too. The face of the “man in the moon” was plainly visible. We watched for a while before sitting in the yard, letting a wonderful warm fall night come down around us.

It was warm and breezy. I didn’t want to leave but eventually did have to head for home. And, oh yes, one more thing about the cookout: Jeff cooked an extra couple of pounds of hot dogs for me to take home for the freezer. He knows I really like them. So that was a nice present for me, although it was his birthday! nnn

St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church at Marblehead (right next to the lighthouse) will host a craft festival 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9. This will be in the church hall and on the parish grounds. Foods (sandwiches, pie, donuts, etc.) will be available. And the doors will be open for visitors who want to see the beautiful interior of the church. nnn

My good friend, Kenny Monnin, is retiring from the Ottawa County Veterans Department. Kenny, who has worked for that department for 12 years, frequently comes into the Recorder’s office at the courthouse to obtain copies of Veterans Service Discharges. A true gentleman, Kenny was never once in a bad or discourteous mood. He was always polite and mannerly, and it was a genuine pleasure to work with him. He was reputed to be 100 percent helpful to this county’s veterans and also did a great service for the county by putting together an alphabetized list of every discharge on file — back to the Civil War. It was a great help to the public. There was a surprise party at the Island House Hotel on Monday night for friends, co-workers and family. And it was a very nice tribute to him. When you see Kenny, tell him congratulations. Let’s hope his retirement years are filled with fun and the happiness he deserves.

Sandy Baumgartner of Oak Harbor is the new administrative assistant to The Perry Group, headquartered at Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island. Sandy is putting together the Group’s newsletter as plans come into being for celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie (in 1813 during the Way of 1812). The observation deck on Perry’s International Peace Memorial (aka Perry’s Monument) is currently being restored. But that important project is only one of the activities going on to prepare for the anniversary celebration. There will be lots of opportunities to help. Send a note to P.O. Box 484, Put-inBay, OH 43456 if you want to offer your assistance. nnn

“Nature at Night Hike” takes place starting at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 at Magee Marsh, 13229 Ohio 2, Oak Harbor. Meet at the bird center, see the nightlife in the marsh and then enjoy refreshments following the walk. This sounds like good fun. nnn

And then, how about this for fun for kids and families? Oct. 1-2 and 8-9, there will be a Halloween Campout at East Harbor State Park. Bonfires, dancing, scarecrow building, cookout, crafts, games, hayrides and more are on the agenda. nnn

The Vineyard on Catawba is hosting its annual Autumn Fest this Saturday at the Community Center located at 3820 E. Vineyard Village Drive, Port Clinton. A wide variety of merchandise will be available from numerous vendors. Proceeds from a bake sale will benefit the resident activity group and lunch will be available from the Second Street Diner. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 2.



On Oct. 2, you can dispose of your old television sets at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds, West Ohio 163, near Oak Harbor. Time is 9 a.m. to noon. All CRT, LCD, plasma and projection screens and console units will be accepted. A fee will be charged for this service. Please note that computers will not be accepted at this recycling event. However, the Port Clinton and Fremont Goodwill Stores accept them on a full-time basis.

Many, many, thanks go out to the wonderful person who saw my purse in a cart at Community Market and turned it into the office there. I appreciate it more than I can say! Also, I owe a big thank you to the clerks at the market who safeguarded it for me until I could get back to pick it up. Money and credit cards, etc., all seemed to be there. I am grateful.


The entertainment season is gearing up. The Firelands Symphony Orchestra had its opening night this past Saturday. Next on the schedule is called “Broadway’s Best,” a performance of favorite show tunes. Soprano Margo Watson and baritone Gregg Busch are the headliners. Broadway classics are on the program. After that show, the orchestra will be into the vibrant holiday season. Their “Holiday Spectacular” will be staged on Dec. 12. nnn


A new flagpole in an area behind the Ida Rupp Library was dedicated to the memory of Robert Armbruster this past Saturday. I wasn’t able to attend because of the funeral of a friend. I hope to find out more about this Eagle Scout project and write about it next week. Can someone help me find this information? nnn

Do you remember that I wrote last week about my being technologically challenged? I said I had taken a camera photo card to Fremont’s Walmart store to have a disc made. Well, guess what? When I got the pictures back, they weren’t my pictures! They belonged to someone else. Oh, well, I guess that happened to people when we had cameras with film, too. nnn

Until next week …

Property values surge, crime down PORT CLINTON — Property values in Port Clinton’s Conestoga area, situated around Lakeview Park, surged for the second year in a row according to information released by program officials. In the same area, crime and police nuisance calls fell sharply. According to data through the second quarter of 2010, the average price of property sold there in publicly advertised, arms-length transactions was $92,000 compared to a previously-assessed average valuation for those properties of $87,105. This represents a 5.6 percent increase so far this year, and continues the trend established from 2009 which saw a rise of almost 6 percent for the same area. The average sale price of Conestoga Area properties further closed the sales price gap compared to other Port Clinton properties, which had an average sale price of $109,019. This difference is 15.6 percent, whereas in 2005 it was 34 percent. “We are delighted to note that while it took 18 years since the closing of the Port Clinton American Standard Products factory for adjacent home values to fall 34 percent, we’ve gotten more than half of that back already,” said Dr. Kirk W. Halliday, executive director of the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Erie and Ottawa Counties and a member of the Conestoga Program executive team. “This accomplishment plus the plummeting crime and nuisance data for the area means the Conestoga Program has been a spectacular success,” he added. Information from police records in 2006 prior to the start of the program showed 1,284 complaint calls for nuisance and violence activities, such as drug sales, trash dumping, public intoxication, robbery, assault and theft. In 2009 this number had fallen to 599, a 54 percent drop. For all police calls, the number for the Conestoga area fell by 42 percent, from 3,152 to 1,813, compared to the city totals of from 14,623 to 11,288, a 23 percent drop. The Conestoga Program involved state-ofthe-art neighborhood revitalization activities such as community organization, capital improvements, home repairs, demolition, housing code enforcement and organized clean-up campaigns. It added intensive behavioral healthcare services plus sophisticated planning and coordination to make sure everything happened with maximum cost-efficiency. “The extensive coordination efforts of the Conestoga Program involving neighbors, the

community, local and state government, social services and the planning team were integral in the project success,” according to project manager Cindy Gunderson of CKG Consulting. “The coordination was centered on community-appropriate outcomes through collaboration and cooperation, not standard processes that satisfy administrative requirements,” she explained. The planning process took over a year and involved consultation and coordination with dozens of community leaders and civic organizations. Advanced planning tools included Start-Up Charts, Case Management Comparison Tables, Real Estate Trend Panel Analysis, and the Performance-Evaluation-Review-Technique. The addition of concentrated mental health and alcohol/addiction services to more traditional neighborhood-based services helped to reduce the number of petty crimes or “incivilities” which had previously harmed morale in the area, according to Halliday. “All the physical improvements in the world aren’t going to help if the community residents feel they are being surrounded by bad behavior from out-of-control neighbors,” he began. “The ‘For Sale’ signs will continue to pop up because people with choices won’t want to live there. But if we can provide affordable and effective counseling and life skills services to all in need, we can reduce these problems to such a low level that confidence will return and then all the other programs will have a chance to work,” Halliday stated. “We particularly owe a big round of applause to Municipal Court Judge (Fritz) Haney and Juvenile Court Judge Kathleen Giesler for insisting that troubled persons and families appearing before their courts get into the treatment they need, and stick with it. We also are indebted to the high quality of services provided by behavioral healthcare agencies, including The Giving Tree, Bayshore Counseling Services, and TDH Enterprises. And WSOS Community Action Council has been involved in Port Clinton for years,” he said. Chris Galvin of the United Way in Ottawa County, another Conestoga Program funder, praised the area residents who “embodied the United Way philosophy of Give, Advocate, and Volunteer” in order to improve their community. “The neighbors became their own strongest advocates with both the public and private sec-

tors, transforming frustration to fruition.” Linda Hartlaub, Port Clinton City Council President, expressed similar thoughts. “These types of improvements cannot be made without the work and cooperation of the entire Genuine neighborhood,” she pointed out. ”The Residents of the Conestoga neighborhood have joined together to make a better community for themselves and the future.” Port Clinton Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester added that the Conestoga program was assisted by the city’s adoption of an exterior housing maintenance code early on, which complemented the Neighborhood Clean-up Days that followed. “It was heart-warming to see how all the residents rallied around to help those who were elWhile Supplies Last derly or had limited income by going to their Reg. $32.00 homes and picking up trash during those activities,” she commented. “I just think it’s been a wonderful program. It’s had a very good impact on the whole city.” The mayor also noted All In -Store that the success of the Conestoga program has encouraged other areas of the city to undertake Opal Jewelry similar projects, such as recent clean-ups at the western end of the city. According to Halliday, other locations in WE BUY northern Ohio are also taking notice. “The City of Sandusky allocated funds from GOLD its Weed and Seed program budget to begin & COINS! the planning process there, and other locations from Fremont to Cleveland have expressed interest,” he said. “I was particularly pleased that BASSETT'S the Sandusky City Commission passed a resoPLAZA lution approving participation in the program Port Clinton on June 28. We are working now on putting the 419-732-6691 planning pieces together and pursuing funding to get it started.

Officials declare Sept . 9 Fetal GOP opens Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Day headquarters Local officials, citizens and children recently gathered on the Ottawa County Courthouse lawn to recognize Sept. 9, 2010, as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Day in Ottawa County. Melinda Slusser, superintendent of the Ottawa County Board of Developmental Disabilities, expressed to local citizens that FASD is 100 percent preventable. “Awareness can be one of the most deciding factors in bringing about positive change. Women who are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant need to know that no amount of alcohol is safe — not a single drop,” she said. Ottawa County Commissioner and Family and Children First Secretary Jim Sass presented a proclamation to Jennifer Zelms, president of the Ottawa County Board of DD, declaring the official day. Sass relayed that the ninth day of the ninth month was chosen as a reminder to women to abstain from alcohol during their nine months of pregnancy, and that

when a pregnant woman consumes alcohol, so does her unborn child. A minute of reflection was held at 9:09 a.m., when local preschool children rang hand bells. The minute of reflection symbolizes the worldwide circle of community that is concerned with FASD. After reflection, the children presented with the song, “Rock-a-bye Baby.” According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, each year almost 40,000 children are born with mental, behav- Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass ioral and physical challenges (right) presents Ottawa County Board of resulting from prenatal ex- DD President Jennifer Zelms a proclamaposure to alcohol.

Alzheimer’s Association offers ongoing support for caregivers People who have Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder are often cared for at home by family members and friends. The Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, invites anyone who has a family member or friend with memory loss to attend a caregiver group meeting. Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease is a challenge. Changes in the person’s behavior, caused by the progress of the disease, can lead to frustration and anxiety for a caregiver. Caregivers attending a support group meeting find a relaxed, confidential atmosphere. They are among other caregivers and discuss suggestions for handling specific medical, legal, behavioral and financial problems. This meeting is free and open to the community. Registration is not required however, it is strongly suggested that you contact the facilitator of the group you plan to attend for the first time to confirm the time, place and date of the meeting or the Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, at 1-800-272-3900 or 419-227-9700. • Port Clinton: The group meets the second Monday of every month at 9 a.m. in the Magruder Hospital Conference Room, 615 Fulton St. For

information, contact facilitators Priscilla Faris at 419-341-1434 or Marian Blevins at 419-797-4923. • Oak Harbor: No set meeting time. Contact facilitator Amy Simkus for information at 419239-8235. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease of the brain which destroys brain cells, causing problems with memory, thinking and behavior severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies or social life.  Alzheimer’s can be fatal and today is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States.  There are more than 5.3 million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease, and someone develops Alzheimer’s disease every 70 seconds.

According to Terra Community College, “Established in 2001, Beauty and Melody is composed of talented young women, all of whom have studied in major music conservatories throughout China where they grew not only into professional musicians, but also into accomplished vocalists and dancers.

Activities for the 65 classmates who attended included parties at Mango Mama’s in downtown Port Clinton and Lambert’s Cottage, dinner and dancing at Catawba Island Club and Sunday breakfast at the Elks Lodge.

include the flowing and gentle sounds of bamboo flutes and wind pipes, the beauty of stringed instruments like the ruan and pipa, and the magnificent strength of suona and percussion instruments. Beauty and Melody is based in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, and has traveled worldwide including a special performance at the United Nations in 2005.” Port Clinton High School students were able to enjoy this educational experience as part of the 2009-2011 Arts Midwest World Fest Partnership with Sandusky State Theatre & Sandusky Concert Association and Terra State Community College & Bellevue Society for the Arts.

County fifth-graders enjoy a day outside The 49th Fifth Grade Conservation Day changed it up by having the historic field day on two days this year. “This event has been planned with our office and The North Point Education Service Center for a very long time,” said Carol Benner of the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District. “Jean Fanning, Sandy Butzin and I thought it was time to give the Jefferson students Mason Bodi (petting the snake), Zach event a ‘face lift’ and have the students enjoy a full Murphy, Dominic Fulkert and John Young get up close day of outdoor educa- and personal with “Lucky” the refuge’s resident Fox tion and hands on activi- Snake at Laura Bonneau’s station. ties.” More than 600 students participate in Brenda Culler, Coastal Management; this environmental each year.

Now that fall is officially here, change is everywhere. The days are shorter and cooler and, in many places, the trees are bursting with color. In preparation for the long winter, squirrels gather nuts and put many of them together in one place. If you’re nearing retirement, you might be able to learn something from our furry friends, as you, too, may want to consolidate some of your assets — in particular, your retirement accounts — as you prepare for a new season in your life. You might be surprised at the number of retirement accounts you’ve accumulated over time. For example, you may have 401(k) plans with a few employers, along with IRAs that you’ve established with different financial services companies. If you were to consolidate all these accounts with just one provider, you might find several key advantages. Possibly the biggest benefit of consolidating your accounts is that it may make it easier for you to track and manage your retirement assets. Once you retire, you could choose to do any number of things: travel the world, pursue your hobbies, volunteer or even open a small business or do some consulting. But whichever retirement lifestyle you choose to follow, you will need to know how much you can afford to withdraw each year, how you can stay ahead of inflation and how best to control your investment-related taxes. You may find it easier to accomplish these things if you have a single, unified investment strategy — and it may be easier to develop such a strategy if you have all your retirement accounts at one place, possibly under the guidance of a single financial advisor. You’ll also find some other benefits to consolidating your retirement accounts: • Less fees — You may be paying fees to several different providers for maintaining your retirement accounts. You might be able to reduce these fees by consolidating your accounts with one provider. • Less trouble calculating distributions — Once you reach 70½, you’ll need to take withdrawals, or distributions, from your 401(k) and your traditional IRA. (This requirement does not apply to a Roth IRA.) It’s not that hard to calculate these required minimum distributions from a single IRA or a single 401(k), but if you have a mix of these accounts at different places, you might have to do a lot of number crunching. If all your accounts were held at the same place, you may have an easier time. • Less chance of forgetting assets — You may find it hard to believe, but plenty of people lose track of their 401(k)s, IRAs and other retirement accounts. In fact, the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits lists more than 50,000 individuals who are owed benefits from 401(k)s, profit-sharing plans or IRAs and either can’t be reached or don’t respond to inquiries. But if you hold all your retirement accounts in one place, you may be less likely to “misplace” them than if you kept them in several different financial institutions. Just as summer turns to autumn and autumn turns to winter, the seasons of your life follow one another in seemingly rapid succession. So when you enter your retirement season, make sure you’re prepared — and one way to help that preparation is to consider consolidating your retirement accounts. nnn

Finances strong for PC City Schools At the September Board of Education meeting, Jeff Dornbusch, District Treasurer, reported that the Port Clinton City School District finished the fiscal year in “very good shape.” The report was presented with all the end-of-year reports completed. A Fiscal year for school districts is from July 1 to June 30 each year. Even though General Fund revenues were down by approximately $150,000 from the previous year, Port Clinton City School District reduced expenses even more thus ending the year in strong fiscal standing. “While there continues to be uncertainty with state funding for schools, one thing remains certain, controlling expenses remains a top priority for our district” stated Dornbusch. Total General Fund expenses used to operate the district were reduced by $301,118 from the previous year. Most expense categories across the board were lower or had a modest increase. Health care costs, which are always a concern, were held constant. Port Clinton City School District employees were the first in a nine-school heath consortium (San-Ott) to enroll in a new health savings plan. The health savings plan lowers costs but requires the employees to take control of their health expenditures. Utility consortiums for electricity and natural gas helped to reduce the district’s utility cost by over 30 percent. While there is excitement for the construction of the district’s new facilities, which should also help reduce expenditures, Dornbusch said, “The main focus is still our commitment to our taxpayers and we will continue to run the district as efficiently as possible.” He added that there

Redskins get big win over Chargers By J. PATRICK EAKEN The Port Clinton Redskins came from behind to defeat the Edison Chargers Friday night, 24-21. “That’s a big win,” PC coach Toby Hammond said. “We were down 14-0 back in the first quarter, and I mean, we scored right at the end of the first quarter. “Then it was 21-7, and we came right back and outscored them and shut them down,” Hammond continued. Edison scored two quick first quarter touchdowns to take a 14-0 lead, but it was mostly PC from there on out. Quarterback Derek Colston completed a 32-yard pass to Steve Wingo and Addison Rospert added the conversion kick to close the gap to one touchdown, 14-7, when the first quarter gun sounded. In the second quarter, Edison scored again on a 10-yard run by Zach Rutherford to expand its lead to two touchdowns again. But that was the final score the Chargers would get. Colston scored on a one-yard run before halftime to close the gap to one touchdown. Rospert’s conversion kick made it a sevenpoint game at intermission. In the second half, the Redskin defense kept Edison out of the end zone while the offense went to work. The Redskins forced three lost fumbles by Edison. “Really, our defense played well,” Hammond said. “They were all were playing what they were supposed to do.” PC’s Stephen Pastor scored on a 19-yard touchdown run to tie the game in the third quarter.


Stephen Pastor blasts through a gaping hole during the Redskins victory over Edison last Friday. Then Rospert later in that quarter kicked a 37-yard field goal, which proved ultimately to be the game winner. The Redskins improve to 3-2, 1-1 in the Sandusky Bay Conference. Edison falls to 3-2, 1-1. Colston completed 12-of-28 passes for 154 yards, including eight to Wingo for 100 yards, one to Eric Reynolds, and three to Josh Graves for 40 yards. Edison had three times as many rushing yards as PC, but the Redskins tripled the Chargers in passing yards. At the Ottawa County showdown at Oak Harbor this Friday, the Redskins will try to show that last year’s win was no fluke by going for two in a row over the Rockets. On October 2, 2009, the Redskins held on to defeat the Rock-

ets 25-14 in front of a Homecoming Crowd at PC’s True-Lay Stadium. It was PC’s first Sandusky Bay Conference victory that season and a 21-year “monkey off the back” off the Redskin football program. It had been that long since PC had defeated Oak Harbor. Anyone under the age of 21 had not been born yet, and that included anyone playing football at Oak Harbor or Port Clinton. In that game, Colston completed 12 of 21 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown. In total net yardage, Oak Harbor held a slim 341 to 328 yard advantage, and PC had 25 first downs to the Rockets’ 22. Oak Harbor did not do poorly offensively, either. The Rockets mounted a rushing game totaling 270 yards on 40 attempts, and




quarterback Steve Young completed 8-of-16 passes for 63 yards and one touchdown. Both Young and Colston return at quarterback for the rematch this season. Nearly the entire PC student body attending ran onto the field to circle the Redskin football team and celebrate after the final whistle sounded. Hammond knows this time around it won’t be easy this time around has Oak Harbor has already had a strong start to the season.
            “Yeah, after I watched them on tape, they are pretty good,” Hammond said. “We saw the Genoa-Oak Harbor (Genoa win by one touchdown) game and I was impressed with Oak Harbor. The Young kid don’t get hurt, and they may have beat Genoa. It’s been a long time since somebody has done that.”

Support soccer teams under the lights Come support the 2010 Port Clinton High School Redskin soccer teams on Thursday, Oct. 7, as they play under the lights at True-Lay Stadium. This is the first year for the girls soccer club team and they play Huron at 5 p.m. The boys play Perkins at 7 p.m. Admission to both games is free for fans wearing PC colors. Students are asked to show their spirit by wearing red and white or their youth soccer Tshirts/uniforms. The PC Soccer Boosters will host a pre-game chicken dinner at the stadium from 4 to 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 presale and $10 at the door. Presale tickets can be purchased during the home soccer games at the Fulton Street soccer field on Wednesday, Sept. 29, or Thursday, Sept. 30. Events include a 50/50 raffle, door prizes and at halftime of the varsity game, the annual Soccer Shootout featuring special guest goalkeepers. The soccer shootout provides a chance for elementary students to shoot a goal for $1 vs. Bataan Memorial and Jefferson Elementary teachers. Free stadium night T-shirts will be given to the first 200 fans.

retta 35-7 Friday night. That took Scott halfway over any attempt to reach 1,000 yards rushing this season. Scott has 527 yards in five games this season as the Rockets improved to 4-1 overall, 2-0 in the Sandusky Bay Conference. Margaretta fell to 3-2, 1-1. Although the Rockets put up five touchdowns, it was the defense that did its job. The Rocket defense effectively put up a shutout, as the Margaretta offense failed to score a touchdown. After a scoreless first quarter, Oak Harbor struck first on a one-yard touchdown run by Steve Young just 45 seconds into the second quarter. Miles Backus added the conversion kick, and the Rockets led 7-0. But on Oak Harbor’s next possession, Margaretta’s Devin Jones returned an interception 37 yards for a Polar Bear touchdown with 7:15 remaining in the half. Moore added the conversion kick, and the game was tied at 7-all. But the Rocket defense did its part, too. Joey Mallernee returned a fumble 45 yards for an Oak Harbor touchdown with 38 seconds remaining in the half, and the Rockets led 14-7 heading into the locker room. The second half was all Oak Harbor. Scott scored on a one-yard with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter to put the Rockets up 21-7. Then Kyle Mincheff scored on a one-yard run with 10:31 remaining in the game. Oak Harbor’s final TD came on a three-yard run by Mark Konieczny with 5:33 left, and on every touchdown Backus added the conversion kick. The Rockets compiled 249 yards rushing. Besides Scott, Mincheff had 47 yards on five carries, Konieczny had 38 yards on seven carries, and quarterback Steve Young had 18 yards on four carries. Young completed 4-of-11 passes, including three to Davey Burkett for 27 yards and one to Scott for three yards. His longest completion to Burkett covered 14 yards. Margaretta had 135 yards rushing, including 38 by Mike Hauke on five carries, 30 by Cory Yontz on 10 carries, 29 by Jones on seven carries, 24 by Ben Singer on three carries, 15 by Chris Vanscoy on five carries, six yards by Corey Kane on two carries, and Charles Elswick had one carry for six yards. Jones, at quarterback on offense, completed 3-of-5 passes for six yards, including an 11-yard pass to Chris Glaindo. Galindo caught two passes for 15 yards, and Moore caught one pass which resulted in a loss of nine yards. The Polar Bears were forced to punt six times, and Moore had one punt covering 62 yards. Oak Harbor punted twice. The Rockets had 16 first downs (13 rushing, two passing, one by penalty) to Margaretta’s eight (seven rushing, one passing). In third down conversions, the Rockets were successful in 6-of-13, the Polar Bears in 2-of-10. Oak Harbor went for the first down three times on fourth down, converting twice. Margaretta converted on its only attempt on fourth down. Oak Harbor had possession of the football 26 minutes and five seconds, Margaretta had possession 21 minutes and 55 seconds. This week, Oak Harbor hosts Ottawa County rival Port Clinton (3-2, 1-1).

Local on state champ team SANDUSKY — The Erie Bucks recently claimed a second straight State Special Olympics Division 1 softball championship, defeating the Darke County Sluggers in the title game at Coontz Recreation Park in Oregon. The Bucks also finished their season with a perfect 10-0 record for the second straight year. The march to the state tournament began with a 22-15 win over the Richland County Bears in the West Sectional Tournament, which sent them to the state final four. In the state semi-finals, the Bucks defeated the Lorain County Raiders, 15-2. The 21-hit Erie County attack got out of the blocks quickly when Andrew Brown led off the game with a home run. Jeremy Champion had four hits to pace the Bucks. Jeff Hartman and Jon Ray added three hits each. With the score tied at eight in the seventh inning of the championship game, Erie County erupted for seven runs on seven consecutive hits. The Bucks held Darke County to a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning to secure the title. Champion had five hits to lead the Bucks and finish the state tournament with a perfect nine-fornine. The Bucks are sponsored by the Erie County Special Olympics.

Free bird banding, migration programs coming up Join the Black Swamp Bird Observatory on Saturdays this fall for free songbird banding, migration programs and the opportunity to see beautiful birds up close. The events will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays, Oct. 2 and 9. Programs are offered free of charge as a service to the community. Bird banding is one of the techniques that helps scientists to better understand bird movements, population dynamics, habitat use and migration patterns. The bird banding programs will demonstrate the methods used at the observatory’s nearby Navarre Bird Banding Station, one of the busiest banding stations in the

country. The Navarre Bird Banding Station has been monitoring bird migration for nearly 25 years and has banded more than 500,000 individual birds to date. Researchers capture birds using soft mist nets. The birds are then fitted with lightweight, individually numbered aluminum leg bands. Data is collected for each bird including species, age, sex, body condition and weight; and then the birds are released unharmed, back into the wild. As migration progresses, each week will present an opportunity to view exciting new species, learn identification pointers and appreciate the bird observatory’s conservation work. Participants

are encouraged to bring a camera for taking outstanding close-up songbird photos. “Bird banding demonstrations are a perfect representation of BSBO’s motto: Teaming Research with Education to Promote Bird Conservation,” said Kimberly Kaufman, BSBO’s executive director. “The programs really showcase how critical the stopover habitats of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge and Magee Marsh Wildlife Area are to the songbird populations of the northern United States and boreal Canada. People are often absolutely blown away when they learn the astonishing number of birds that rely on this area to survive the rigors of migration.

“Dear David, I want to truly Thank You! I came to you for relief from stress, and what I didn’t realize was how much stress I was under. After talking with you, I felt a certain amount of relief, but after the Hypnosis Session - WOW! Immediate relaxation set in. My sleep pattern has improved, my mood and overall demeanor is unlike I have ever experienced. A week later on the follow-up session what a difference, I felt like a new person. You have helped me to put myself â€œďŹ rstâ€?. Thank You! You are truly sincere about what you do. I appreciate all that you have done.â€? - Jo Kopchak

“I thought I would be a hard nut to crack when it came to quitting smoking. I smoked for 37 years. I was tired of cigarettes controlling my life. I couldn’t sleep more than 1-2 hours at a time, my hair and clothes smelled. I tried many times to quit smoking. I attended a group hypnosis session, tried the nicotine patch and attempted cold turkey. Nothing worked. Nothing until I met David Prudhomme. My session with David was the most relaxing, easy and effortless way to put a stop to my addiction. I ďŹ nd that I have much more energy and I sleep more soundly. I do not have the urge to smoke and I can be around people who do smoke and it doesn’t bother me. If I can do this, anybody can!â€? -Bev Krofft

“Dear David, I came to you to stop smoking and also for anxiety. I would like the world to know how much you have helped me, I am no longer a smoker, no urges to smoke, no anxiety. I feel WONDERFUL. I am in control of my life for the ďŹ rst time in many years. This has been the most rewarding experience and so unlike what I expected. David you are awesome!!! There are no adequate words to describe how much I appreciate what you have helped me to become, A NEW NON-SMOKER, RELAXED, ANXIETY FREE, HAPPY AND ALL WITHOUT TAKING ANY MEDICATION. Thank you.â€? -Wanda Keller

“Dear David, I came to you to lose weight. Through hypnosis you helped me eliminate the things that triggered my overeating. Gone is the anxiety, stress, loneliness, low self-esteem and shame. You helped me ďŹ nd forgiveness and self-conďŹ dence and I now feel a glow about myself with peace, happiness, love and contentment. I’m excited for each day and have new energy. I’m eating healthier and getting slimmer. Thank you. You have done more for me than any counselor or psychologist.â€? - Jane Lambert

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to take this opportunity to thank David Prudhomme and his practice Mederi Wellness for helping me with insomnia. I have been pleased with the results and am pleasantly surprised how hypnosis is helpful in many other areas of my overall wellbeing. I recommend David Prudhomme to anyone who would like to improve their lives, change habits or, in my case, improve sleep.â&#x20AC;? - Tally Gallogly â&#x20AC;&#x153;My migraines are completely gone after just one session. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sleeping better and I feel wonderful.â&#x20AC;? - Renee Konzen â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have Multiple Sclerosis and have suffered from trigeminal neuralgia for the past 3 years. The condition caused me to have severe pain that required me to be on 4 pain pills each day. After learning that hypnosis works very well to control pain I decided to work with David Prudhomme. After the ďŹ rst session I experienced relief from my pain. During the second session David taught me techniques to control my pain, and I have been able to stop my pain medication. I am now pain free and I am even sleeping better.â&#x20AC;? - Fred Genzman
