Resale center opens Friday By JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher Bob and Linda Snyder have always believed in giving back to the community that has given to them. The local developer and his wife have dreamed of creating a place where people could buy quality goods at extremely low prices to give those less fortunate in our area a break. For the past three months, the

Portage Resale Center has been taking shape in the east wing of the old Portage School. On Friday, that dream becomes a reality. Several years ago, Bob Snyder served as chairman of the United Way fundraising campaign in Ottawa County. That campaign, thanks to a lot of innovative ideas that came from Snyder’s involvement, was a big success. He was instrumental, along with his part-

Voters ready for election


Local voters geared up for the Nov. 8 election last week by packing the house at Candidates and Issues Night at the Port Clinton Elks Lodge. Those running for office spoke about their backgrounds, platforms and achievements while those representing state and local issues stated their positions. For those of you who missed the chance to attend, or watch live on WPCR’s website,, more opportunities are available to gather information before casting your ballot. The Ida Rupp Public Library displays and distributes literature representing all points of view. During the month leading up to the election, the library will display and distribute voter information and campaign literature for issues and candidates appearing on local ballots. In addition, the Ida Rupp Public Library will distribute copies of the election brochure published by the League of Women Voters and include links to election information on the Library’s web site. For candidates, Ida Rupp Public Library is requesting that election information be sent to the attention of the Library Director. The Library assumes no responsibility for contacting individuals or committees if appropriate campaign literature is not received. The Library Director will determine how and where such literature is displayed or distributed in the Library. Flyers and brochures may not exceed 8½ x 14 in size and the quantity may not exceed 500 per delivery. Campaign materials that are not literature will not be considered for display or distribution. All campaign materials will be removed on the evening before the election and discarded.

Fourteen eateries compete in second annual event By ANGIE ADAIR ZAM Editor Fourteen area pizza vendors will face off in the second annual Rotary Pizza Challenge next week. Guests are welcome to come sample the pies and cast their ballot for the People’s Choice award. Meanwhile, local “celebrities” will be judging the other two categories: pepperoni, to be scored by Danbury and Port Clinton high schoolers, and specialty, ranked by some chosen local adults. “Last year I think we had 12 vendors and I was hoping to have 150 people show up,” said Duane Waite, Rotarian and chairman of the event. “We had 459 come through the front door.” Waite brought the idea for the challenge to the local Rotary after attending a similar event in Sandusky. “I thought, there’s just no reason we

can’t do this,” he said. With a little help from Rotary’s Sandusky counterparts, the first event went off smoothly. This year, the only change planned is the placement of the ballot boxes. For the inaugural event, they were all lined up in one bank together, which Waite said was a bit confusing for voters. This year, each vendor will have a ballot box — or pizza box — on their table to catch the votes. The vendors are: Beer 30’s, Bell Mell’s, Bruno’s Pizzeria, Cameo Pizza, Caro’s Pizza House, Feltner’s Flipping Pizza, Lagoon Saloon, Marco’s, Mr. Ed’s Bar and Grille, Papa Jimmie’s, Pizza House, Pizza Hut, Porky’s and Sloopy’s. “It’s a great way to showcase the product,” said Ted Haughn, vice president of operations at Bruno’s Pizzeria in downtown

Marblehead. “I can’t even count the number of people who came in because of the pizza challenge.” Bruno’s, along with other participating eateries, are getting the word out to customers with flyers in the establishments and on the pies heading out for delivery. The Rotary Pizza Challenge runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, and is held at the Port Clinton Elks Lodge on Buckeye Boulevard. The cost for all-you-can eat pizza and pop is $10 or $5 for those younger than 12. A cash bar will also be available. All proceeds support scholarships for Port Clinton and Danbury High School students. For information about the Pizza Challenge, go to for a link to the event page.

Tell Tales

Trip to Washington, D.C., was inspiring Having noted that this is the political season last week, Mary Alice and I took a trip to Washington, D.C., last week to formally celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. I got to chat with Congressman Bob Latta, who, although he no longer represents us in Congress, is an old friend. I also received two tickets to a fall garden tour on the south lawn of the White House from Marcy Kaptur. We caught ourselves standing 50 feet from the Oval Office. Most inspiring was our first visit to the World War II

Memorial. There were several Honor Flight groups there, one from Dallas and another from Bend, Ore. It was great to have the opportunity to thank these fine men and women for their service. We also got to see the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial one day before it was formally dedicated. However, my overall impression is that Washington is a pretty screwed up place. It was hard to get anywhere in that city, as it is overloaded with staffers, bureaucrats and lobbyists. There is no way n

Good Librations

Of the many fascinating secrets kept by  the Marblehead Peninsula, one of the most colorful is becoming known more and more each year. The organizers of the sixth annual Good Librations: Out of Africa fundraising gala held on Sept. 10 are proud to announce its highest attendance yet: more than 175 enthusiastic patrons came to celebrate and grow a library. Your generous support is necessary and so appreciated. We thank you for coming and for bringing new friends each year. An elite league of Danbury students passed fine hors d’oeuvres and served an exotic buffet of appetizers prepared by our seasoned committee. It was said their attentiveness to the guests added a special charm and energy to the evening. Many thanks to: Erin Lavelle, Lindsay and Grady Mark, Ben Keller, Bri Adams, Caitlynn Thompson, Katie Almendinger, James

Dorko and Caleb Gerber. Each year a different book is chosen for the event, based on its era, atmosphere and setting. The African theme this year, “Out of Africa” by Isak Dinesin, evoked the wild animal in many guests as they donned fun leopard and zebra patterned outfits, safari jackets and hats. They basked in the decor of an African savannah encampment, with nearly life-sized silhouettes of elephants and giraffes, listened to the  easy listening acoustic music of the Michael Shirtz trio and indulged in an unprecedented offering of more than 160 silent auction items. Bidding was spirited to the end and we wish to thank the generous donors who provided so many wonderful items.* Thanks to your support, the establishment of a community media and resource center is one step farther away from being  one of the best-kept  secrets on the Peninsula. So much is possible now. Please stop in to Ex Libris, Books to Buy, Books to Borrow at 110 W. Main St. Maybe you will hear whisperings of next year’s theme for Good Librations VII.

Yes on Issue 12 I am writing to appeal to the common sense of the voters within the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District and urge them

to vote yes for Issue 12. This levy will be the first increase from the voters in 11 years. In those 11 years, utilities have gone up, maintenance costs have gone up, transportation costs have gone up and the district has managed to cut and save every where possible. In the same time period, the school district lost Davis-Besse monies and state monies. Something has to give, and it is time for the community to support the needed revenue. Like everyone else, my costs of living have gone up and have not necessarily been met by the same increases in income. But, these children are our future. We need these children to have an excellent education. They will be our health care providers, our bankers and any other service or care you will need as you progress through life. Why would we shortchange the education of these children? We think nothing of getting together for coffee and spending that dollar or more, but can’t seem to find the value in 33 cents a day (on a $100,000 home) to spend on the future of our community? As you encounter more and more of a diverse population tending to your customer service needs or your medical needs, consider why there may be a language barrier. The world education rankings from the OECD ( ) are out and the US is not faring well. We have an opportunity Nov. 8 to do something about this. We have an opportunity to give the children of the BentonCarroll-Salem School District the kind of educational opportunities they deserve to become exceptional contributors to society as they grow. Please VOTE YES for ISSUE 12. Deborah Meek Oak Harbor

I strongly encourage voters to support Issue 12, Benton-Carroll-Salem Local School District’s emergency operating levy. Passage of the issue is essential to maintaining the excellence of the schools and the community and would cost the owner of a $100,000 home just 33 cents a day — less than a cup of coffee. State cuts and other challenges have schools across Ohio struggling to maintain a high-quality education, and BCS schools are no different. In the new state biennium budget, the district lost $315,454 in tangible personal property tax revenue, with no further payments in coming years. Utility deregulation funding was decreased about $354,000 for each of the next two fiscal years, with future payments uncertain. Stimulus funds of $537,541 received over the last two years will not be replaced. The district has made substantial reductions in staff and services, but cannot get out of the current financial crisis with reductions alone. Even if issue 12 passes, further belt-tightening will be necessary. Your school board has been an outstanding steward of tax dollars. Staff reductions for the 2011-2012 school year saved the district $1.2 million. Over the past five years the district saved nearly $720,000 through limited contracts to retired staff;

eliminating 18 positions; reducing instructional supplies by 15%; and reducing bus service. Other savings include $600,000 per year by transferring vocational programs to Penta Career Center and an estimated $1 million from closing Rocky Ridge Elementary School. It has been 11 years since the community approved new funds for its schools. If Issue 12 fails, the district will be forced to close Carroll and Graytown elementaries in the 2012-2013 school year; further reduce staff; implement state minimum busing; and initiate pay-to-participate for athletics. In addition, fourth-graders would move to the middle school and eighth-graders would move to the high school. For 20132014, seventh-graders would move to the high school and all programs and activities would be negatively impacted. Benton-Carroll-Salem has been ranked Excellent on the state report card two straight years. By voting yes, you are voting to continue this excellence — in your schools, your children and your community. Richard Lewis Executive director, Ohio School Boards Association

PCMS Cornerstone I was shocked to read that the new Port Clinton Middle School has had a cornerstone dedicated that will carry the Masonic insignia into the future of the building. The Masonic cornerstone ceremony was performed by the Grand Master of Ohio Masons and repeated by Pat Adkins and local school officials who invited top officers of the Grand Lodge and the local Perry Lodge to do the ritual. When the average American thinks of Masonry, thoughts are of Children Burn Centers, the Shrine Circus, and a parade of Shriners driving up and down the parade route in their little cars wearing clothes of the Arabian knights bringing laughter to the kids lined up along the way. On more serious occasions, such as the laying of public building cornerstones, these same men, dressed in somber attire, wearing their ornate sashes, medallioned chains of office and ceremonial aprons, will perform with solemn dignity, the rites handed down through the centuries of their ritual secrecy. Yet, once you get past the good-old-boy fraternal act, the funny red hats of the Shriners, and the sheltered reputation of the local Masonic groups, there is something beyond the colorful mask, an aura of mystery, power and intrigue, complete with undertones of false gods, blood oaths, conspiracy and back room politics. So now the taxpayers, who are burdened with 37 years of the school levy tax to pay for this new school, are to accept Port Clinton School Superintendent Pat Adkins’ words that “Masonic cornerstone ceremony is an established opportunity to being the ‘life’ of a new building.” The trouble is the cornerstone ceremony is another example of the double meaning behind most of Freemasonry’s facade. Can I get my money back? John Swigart Port Clinton

AUTUMN FEST Gene Hill, resident at The Vineyard on Catawba, is pictured displaying his laser-art crafts at the sixth annual Autumn Fest and Bake Sale on Saturday, Oct. 1. There were homemade baked goods for sale and a large variety of vendors. The Vineyard also hosted a Chili Cookoff in conjunction with the fest.

Portage Township Trustee Drew Surovjack, Portage Township Fiscal Officer Judy Johannsen and OSS Solid Waste District Board Chairman Jim Sass show off the grant award of $2,665 for recycled plastic fence and arbors for both township cemeteries.

Solid Waste District hands out grant funds Ten organizations received funding to start recycling programs or to buy products made from recycled materials in the first-round of competitive funding offered by the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste Management District. The grant program’s main priority is to set up recycling programs for educational institutions, governmental entities or non-profit organizations. Any agency applying must have a recycling program in place in order to apply for funds for products made from recycled material. There is a $10,000 grant award limit on each application and the applicant must match a minimum of 20 percent of the total project cost. Entities receiving funding for products made from recycled plastic include: Allen Township Trustees — $3,727 to purchase waste receptacles, Bellevue Hospital — $1,468 for new signs, Erie Township Trustees — $704 to purchase sign stands, Ottawa County Agricultural Society — $10,000 to purchase bleacher seating, Otterbein North Shore Retirement Community — $2,070 for gliders and end tables, Portage Township Trustees — $2,665 to purchase fencing and arbors, Put-in-Bay Township — $4,042 for new picnic tables and benches, Seneca County Park District — $3,860 to purchase signage and Sisters of St. Francis — $10,000 to purchase new signs. Amy Drummer, assistant director of the Solid Waste District, administers the grant program and sees the direct benefits to the community. “These grants provide an opportunity for local organizations to create or expand recycling programs,” said Drummer. “The purchase of recycled products provides the public examples of what types of products can be made from the materials they recycle every day.” The next funding round deadline for the Competitive Funding Program is 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31. All grant requests for products made of recycled material must contain documentation of a minimum 25 percent recycled content. The grant application is available online, however, grant applicants are required to attend a meeting prior to submitting an application. The purpose of the meeting is to explain what information is needed to properly fill out the grant application form. The next meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 5. The meeting will be located at the District’s Main office, 1875 E. State St., Fremont. Eligible applicants include governmental entities, educational institutions and non-profit organizations. For information or to register for the meeting, contact Drummer at 888-850-7224 or email View the OSS Solid Waste District’s website at to view grant guidelines, the application or for general recycling information.

Ottawa County Court Appointed Special Advocates Board of Directors recently held an evening of appreciation for the volunteer advocates that are serving the abused, neglected and dependent children of Ottawa County. A beautiful evening of champagne and chocolate was hosted by Board Member Linda O’Brian and her husband Wade with the added benefit of a breathtaking sunset on the lake. Several awards were presented to those volunteers who have gone above and beyond to assist the children they serve as well as promoting the program. The Rising Star award, presented to a volunteer that has been serving for less than two years, was given to JoAnn Behlke. She has worked very hard serving many children and has been very devoted to those kids. The Volunteer of the Year award went to Rosalyn Barnhill. She, in addition to serving many children, organized and coordinated a day of “Celebrating Oneself.” This was a day of special pampering and selfesteem building for many of the young moms involved in the program. The Jennie R. Dornbusch, Beacon of Light award was presented to Judge Kath-

Regal, Ottawa County Auditor, assisted by Molly Sass and BJ Surovjak, will prepare a home-cooked meal to be served at 5:30 p.m. Monnett, retired Clerk of Courts, and Ottawa County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Mulligan are in charge of ticket sales and pre-registration. County Treasurer Bob Hille, County Commissioner Jim Sass and Sheriff Steve Levorchick are in charge of prizes to be distributed at the dinner. Anyone wishing to donate a door prize should contact Bob Hille at 419-734-6750. Darrell Opfer, retired state representative, has underwritten the cost of the hall rental.

leen Giesler. In addition to respecting and acknowledging the hard work of CASA volunteers, she has promoted and assisted the program in all areas. The judge has been instrumental in guiding the Board of Directors, danced in the inaugural Ottawa County CASA Dances with the Stars event, and continues to support the program in many ways. Congratulations to all of the volunteers on another year of service to the kids. CASA volunteers are specially trained volunteers that work and speak on behalf of children in the courtroom. These volunteers spend countless hours learning about all facets of the life of the child they serve. This information helps the court in making decisions about what serves the best interest of these children. Ottawa County CASA is currently recruiting volunteers for a new class. The number of children and families that we are serving continues to grow and it is important that we add to the number of volunteers. Anyone with a desire to help the most vulnerable children in our county is welcome to apply. For information, call the office at 419-301-0225.

Halloween Trick or Treat tradition continues An Ottawa County Halloween tradition will celebrate its 11th year thanks to support of the Riverview Nursing Home Auxiliary. From 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus will open its doors to the public for Riverview’s annual Trick or Treat Night. Little ghost and ghouls are invited to Trick or Treat at the door of our 100 residents. “This is a win-win for both Riverview and the Community. It gives families a safe, well-lit, warm place to Trick or Treat, and our residents have a ball getting to see all the different costumes. It something that they may have enjoyed in their own home and we are happy our Auxiliary has given us the opportunity to provide the experience right here in our building,” said Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus Administrator Kendra German.  At 7:15 p.m., families can gather in Riverview’s spacious Multipurpose Room where guests are invited to enjoy cookies and punch. Trick or Treaters can participate in the costume contest. First-, second- and third-place prizes will be given out for the prettiest, funniest and scariest costumes and for our littlest goblins (ages 0-2 years) a best baby costume. The Riverview All Stars’ Relay for Life Team will also be hosting a Haunted Basement for $1 and Halloween Bake Sale. All proceeds from these events will benefit the Ottawa County Relay for Life. The Auxiliary is donating $1,000 worth of candy, but there is always need for more. If you are interested in donating candy or

money to this special event, contact Kim Geldien at 419-898-2851, ext. 0. Those wishing for their donation to be dedicated toward the costume contest should specify this and their name will be included on the winners’ gift bags. All donors will be announced throughout the event and have their name displayed in our “Pumpkin Patch” in Riverview’s front lobby. The Riverview Auxiliary is an area-wide organization devoted to the wellbeing of the residents of Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus (Nursing Home). The organization is always in need of active members, but also needs the support of general members. The Auxiliary meets every other month, February, April, August, October and December on the first Monday of the month at 9:30AM in Riverview’s Multipurpose Room. The meeting held in June, is the first Monday at 7pm, to accommodate those members who may work during the daytime meetings. The Riverview Auxiliary has provided Riverview Healthcare Campus with approximately $30,000 in donations in 2010 alone. A majority of this donation was used to construct the Helen Sharpe Memorial and Riverview Auxiliary Gazebo, which greets guest outside the main entrance of Riverview. Cost to become a member is $5 per year or $50 for a Lifetime Membership. Those interested in joining this worthwhile active group may contact Madonna Beard at 419-898-0803 or pick up a Membership form in the Riverview Healthcare Campus front lobby at 8180 W.

Two Sessions To Help You Quit Smoking

Noon-3pm & 6-9pm

Hypnosis works!

David S. Prudhomme has a proven track record for helping people just like you STOP SMOKING FOREVER! “YES, it’s true. I’m a nonsmoker. I was smoking 2&1/2 packs a day. I tried to quit smoking several times with medication, but it only made me feel tired and depressed, and I was only able to cut back on smoking not quit. Then my doctor suggested hypnosis to quit smoking. I called the number and spoke with David, he was very confident that I would walk out a non-smoker. I thought on it for a couple of weeks, and then set up my appointment. I am proud to say I have been a non-smoker since 3/12/2009. Thanks to David Prudhomme and hypnosis I couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you!” -- Jody A

“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 first 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 NONSMOKER, RELAXED, ANXIETY FREE, HAPPY AND ALL WITHOUT TAKING ANY MEDICATION. Thank You.” -- Wanda Keller

County holds medication take back event The Ottawa County Sheriff ’s Office, along with local fire departments, law enforcement agencies and the OSS Solid Waste District are collaborating to provide proper medication disposal to the residents of Ottawa County. A one-day collection for unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at multiple locations Saturday, Oct. 29. Ottawa County residents are encouraged to drop off medications at any of the following collection sites: • Village of Genoa Police Department — 102 E. Sixth St., Genoa • Portage Fire District Station — 242 W. Water St., Oak Harbor • Ottawa County Sheriff ’s Office — 315 Madison St., Port Clinton • Lakeside Fire Station No. 2 — 150 S.

Bridge Road, Danbury Township • Catawba Island Township Fire Station — 4730 Cemetery Road, Catawba Island Township Ottawa County Sheriff, Steve Levorchick, said he believes there is a need for this type of program in Ottawa County. “This program provides residents with a safe and secure means to destroy old unwanted medications” he said. “It helps prevent persons of all ages from accidentally taking medications that are no longer needed, prescribed to someone else or falling into the wrong hands.” Outdated or unused medications that can be disposed of include: prescription and over-the-counter medications, medication samples, narcotics (controlled sub-

stances), vitamins and inhalers. Residents are asked to keep medications in their original containers. Names and personal information may be crossed off or removed before dropping off. Please do not dispose of medical syringes/needles or illicit drugs during the collection. The Sheriff ’s Department is working with the Drug Enforcement Administration to sponsor this collection. According to the DEA, the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows prescription medicines to be the most abused drugs by Americans other than marijuana. Almost three-fourths of teen prescription drug abusers get the drugs from family and friends. The home medicine cabinet is a major

Blood and platelet donors needed as soon as possible Here and now, the Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region needs 300 units of blood each and every day. However, not nearly enough people are giving blood. Local supplies are insufficient to meet the needs of our community’s hospitals in a timely manner. There is also an immediate need for platelets, a blood component used to treat cancer patients, for

example. Although the local Red Cross is intensifying phone calls, e-mails and direct mail to blood and platelet donors, the response is still not sufficient to meet current needs. Anyone who is eligible to donate blood or platelets is asked to do so as soon as possible. For those who have never donated — or have not donat-

ed in a while — now is the time to try. To get as many donations as possible with the greatest efficiency, Red Cross officials are asking eligible blood and platelet donors to make appointments or to keep the appointments they have already made. To help, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS.

Sometimes the market reacts poorly to changes in the world. But just because the market reacts doesn’t mean you should. Still, if current events are making you feel uncertain about your finances, you should schedule a complimentary portfolio review. That way, you can help ensure you’re in control of where you want to go and how you can potentially get there.

Take control. Schedule your free portfolio review today.

Banner season for PC’s fall sports teams By JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher While much of the attention this fall has been placed on the Port Clinton High School football team’s quest for their first winning season since 1990, several other teams from PC have excelled as well. As previously reported, the Redskin golf team won the Sandusky Bay Conference title. Last Saturday, coach Del Culver’s girls cross country team brought the SBC championship trophy home, and now, the boys soccer team finished the regular season with a 4-2 win at Huron then an 8-0 win over Clyde to wrap up the season undefeated in the SBC and a 15-1 record overall. The girls soccer team finished second in the SBC behind Oak Harbor with a 12-3-1 record overall. For the boys soccer team, their top goal scorers on the season have been Nick Heminger, David Brown, John Brown, Jose Figueroa, Ben Heminger, Alec Ochs and Brandon Stubblefield. Assist leaders include Stubblefield, John Bowers, Ochs and Carter Rumball. Garrett Zunk was forced to make only two saves last week, one each against Huron and Clyde. Obviously, the key element of the Redskins’ play is controlling the ball in their opponent’s zone.

“All of the seniors wanted to win the conference and play good soccer,” said coach Paco Romero Tuesday. “Playing good soccer was our focus.” I would say they accomplished that. The Redskins play Perkins in the first round of tournament play behind McCormick School in Huron tonight (Thursday). The Pirates gave the Redskins a scare a couple of weeks ago. “We escaped from losing by a score of 2-1 the last time we played them,” said Romero. “Their players are very skilled and they are also very disciplined.” The girls’ team defeated Huron 2-0 and Clyde by a score of 7-0 last week. Shelby Gerwin and Gracey Stewart were the goal scorers against Huron. Abbi Pitts, Kaegan Frye, Shelby Gerwin, Breahanna Hernandez, Marcy Lindsley and Rachel Nehls scored the goals in the win over Clyde. In Cross Country, the lady Redskins finished 3-4-5 behind the efforts of Sara Chura, Abbi Bitts and Claire Zielinski. Three more runners earned second team All SBC honors as Kennedy Gulas, Hannah Weaver and Cheyenne Meek went 10-11-12. The Port Clinton Middle School boys

Fliers take down Rockets BY J. PATRICK EAKEN Oak Harbor’s bid to hand Clyde its first Sandusky Bay Conference loss went by the wayside last Friday as the visiting Fliers rolled to a 35-14 victory. Oak Harbor falls to 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the SBC, while Clyde improves to 6-2 overall and a perfect 5-0 in the league. The game was a special night to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Night, as fans and players were decked out in pink. Oak Harbor and Clyde school officials asked fans to wear pink to the game. The pink Breast Cancer Awareness bows were painted on the field and Oak Harbor football players and cheerleaders wore pink towels during the game. But once the game started, it was all Clyde. The Fliers scored the first four touchdowns to take a 28-0 lead, although the Rockets did mount a comeback to make it a two-touchdown game with 6:37 remaining. Brad Smith had 216 yards rushing on 34 carries and scored three touchdowns for Clyde. The Fliers were 9-of-11 on third down conversions and successful on two fourth down conversions, while Oak Harbor only converted once in eight third down tries and once in three fourth down tries. Clyde scored twice in the first quarter — on a 4-yard run by Smith with 5:34 remaining in the quarter and then again on a 19-yard run by Bennett Brown with 2:11 remaining. In the second quarter, Smith scored

on a 7-yard run with 2:12 remaining until halftime. In all of Clyde’s touchdowns, Alex Medley added the conversion kick. Smith broke loose for a 37-yard touchdown run just over two minutes into the second half to give the Fliers all the cushion it would need. However, Alex Bergman scored on a 1-yard run with 5:24 remaining in the third quarter to put Oak Harbor on the board. Then, Oak Harbor scored again on a 10-yard pass from senior quarterback Brian Mallernee to his brother, Joey Mallernee. On both touchdowns, J.J. Rathbun added the conversion kick. But Clyde came back one more time — scoring on a 5-yard run by Brown with 1:56 left in the game. The Clyde defense held Oak Harbor running back Mark Konieczny to 54 yards on 12 carries. His longest run was 23 yards. Brian Mallernee completed 11-of-16 passes for 142 yards, including a 29-yard pass to Joey. Joey Mallernee was Brian’s favorite receiver, catching five passes for 75 yards. A.J. Cecil caught four passes for 46 yards and Austin Wiegand caught two passes for 21 yards. On defense, Joey Mallernee also had an interception. For Clyde, quarterback Ryan Meyer completed 4-of-7 passes for 82 yards, including a 27-yard toss to Adam Turner. Turner caught two passes for 53 yards, Brown had one catch for 15 yards, and Chris Moore caught one pass for 14 yards. Brown also ran for 38 yards on five carries and Meyer had 15 yards on three carries.

Danbury falls to Ottawa Hills BY J. PATRICK EAKEN Ottawa Hills’ running back threat Will Longthorne was just exactly that — a threat — in scoring two touchdowns to defeat visiting Danbury 3422 in Toledo Area Athletic Conference football action Friday night. Longthorne ran for 42 yards and caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from Green Bear quarterback Jon Rodriguez as the host team improved to 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the TAAC. Longthorne finished the night with 195 yards rushing on 30 carries. Danbury fell to 3-5 and 2-4. Senior quarterback Lucas Kennedy led Danbury with 207 yards rushing on 28 carries, plus he scored two touchdowns on runs of one yard and

11 yards. Cody German had 53 yards rushing and an 11-yard touchdown run. Kennedy completed 18-of-25 passes for 121 yards, but he had one interception. Cory Schenk was his favorite receiver, catching 12 passes for 90 yards. German had six catches for 31 yards. The Lakers had 373 total yards, including 252 rushing and 121 passing, and the visiting team had 19 first downs, including 13 rushing, three passing and three by penalty. Rodriguez had a 1-yard touchdown run and threw one other TD pass for Ottawa Hills — a 6-yarder to Jake Swafford. He completed 5-of10 passes for 101 yards. Ottawa Hills

Clyde had 19 first downs, including 14 rushing, four passing, and one by penalty. Oak Harbor had 13, including five rushing and eight passing. The Fliers had 364 total net yards, including 282 rushing and 82 passing. Oak Harbor had 255 total yards, including 113 rushing and 142 passing. Each team lost one fumble, but Clyde dominated the time of possession. The Fliers were on offense for 38 minutes of the game, while Oak Harbor had possession for 22 minutes. Konieczny, despite having one of his lowest performances of the season in yards gained against a very good Clyde defense, still has managed to cross the 1,000 yard threshold. In 175 carries, he has ran for 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns, with his longest run the season covering 63 yards. Brian Mallernee has completed 61of-132 passes for 878 yards and 10 touchdowns — his longest being a 57-yard toss to Austin Wiegand. Wiegand has been his favorite receiver with 23 catches so far this season. On defense, Kaleb Maguire leads with two interceptions and Wiegand and Joey Mallernee each have one. This Saturday night, the Rockets travel to take on Sandusky St. Mary Central Catholic (3-5, 1-4). SMCC’s only league win was a narrow 13-12 victory over visiting Perkins in the first week of league action. Other SMCC wins have been over Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic, 33-17, and Danbury, 42-13. Losses have been to Norwalk St. Paul 23-7, Huron 38-12, Clyde 63-0, Port Clinton 35-0, and Edison 50-15.

scored three first half touchdowns to take a 20-0 lead, and had 34 points before the Lakers could answer starting in the third quarter. The Ottawa Hills win sets up a TAAC showdown this Friday in Northwood (7-1, 5-0), where the Green Bears and Rangers will collide. An Ottawa Hills win would give the Green Bears a chance to share the championship with the Rangers if both teams win their final games. Kennedy has gone over the 2,000 yard mark in total yards, accumulating a total of 2,326 total yards, including 1,253 rushing and he has thrown for an additional 1,073 yards. Schenk has caught 47 passes for 735 yards. Danbury travels to Gibsonburg this Friday to take on the Golden Bears for the first time ever as a TAAC contest. Gibsonburg joined the league this season. “Gibsonburg is a great addition to the TAAC — there is no question,” Danbury coach Tim Heffernan said. The Golden Bears are 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the TAAC. They have defeated Lakota 19-16, Cardinal Stritch Catholic 12-0, Toledo Christian 20-6, and Hilltop 29-19, but have losses to Elmwood 33-14, Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic 27-7, Ottawa Hills 38-0, and Northwood 46-0. The Golden Bears are led by second-year coach Steve Reser, and on the field freshman quarterback Mark Tille leads a spread offense. They feature 6-4, 210 pound senior tight end/wide receiver Logan Jones, who also plays on the defensive line.

PC turnaround not immune to turnovers By JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher The Port Clinton Redskins were 5-2 when they traveled to Perkins last Friday night to take on the 0-7 Pirates. There might have been a lack of focus or they just ran into a team that was due. Either way, the end result was a PC loss to Perkins, 20-6. “They made plays and we didn’t,” said Redskins Coach Toby Hammond this week. “We turned the ball over and they didn’t. You can’t beat yourself.” The Redskins were in the game to the end, and had a couple of drives deep into Perkins territory turned away in the second half. Had they scored on one of those third quarter drives, the outcome might have been very different. “Every time we got going we either turned the ball over or had a penalty that hurt us,” said Hammond. “We knew Perkins was going to be a tough game. They are very good defensively and their record is misleading with the schedule they have played so far.” So now the Redskins must find an upset in them in their last two games, both on the road, against the top two teams in the Sandusky Bay Conference, Huron and Clyde. Port Clinton is 5-3 overall on the season and must win one of the two games go gain that elusive winning season that hasn’t happened in 21 long years. First up is Huron. “They are fast and very athletic,” says Hammond, adding, “they are also more physical than they have been.” When asked if he had any tricks up his sleeve ready for these next two games, Hammond replied, “no tricks. We will just try to play as well as we can and not beat ourselves. The big thing now is who still wants to play football or who is just counting the days down until football is over. We’ll see if we have any pride in our team.”


PC’s Addison Rospert gets a couple of key blocks from his offensive line to break loose for a good gain against Perkins. A Perkins running back is about to meet up with Redskin defensive end Aaron Smith for no gain.

Port Clinton’s flag football season is under way. Games are 9 a.m. Saturdays at Taft hill.

FALL from 1B cross country team continued on their amazing winning streak again on Saturday at the SBC Championships in Huron. The boys’ team took first place scoring an awesome score of 16 pts! Logan Hepp was the SBC individual champ setting the SBC course record in Huron with a time of 11:32! Six boys on the team earned All-League honors which are given to the top ten out of 63 in the race. They included Michael Leone in 2nd, Zach Barr in 3rd, Matthew Winke in 5th, Collin Rider in 7th, and Logan Willoughby in 9th. Running their personal bests were Logan Willoughby, Thomas Keville, Chris Haghiri, and Collin Miller. Katelyn Koebel also earned All-League honors by finishing 6th in the girls race. Many girls had their season by running their best times of the season, in the windy, cool weather. They finished in 5th place as a team. Running their personal bests were Courtney Koebel, Taylor Rollins, Taylor Steyer, Stephanie Wheeler, Rachel Reineck, and Jasmine Garcia. Great job to both teams! Some of the boys will finish off their seasons this Sunday at the Middle School State Championships at GrovesportMadison High School as they look to bring one more trophy home in this successful season!

Financial Focus

Do men and women invest differently? Several years ago, a book titled Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus was quite popular. As the title suggests, the book argues that men and women are vastly different from each other, particularly in their emotional needs and in the way they communicate. While not everyone agrees with the notion that men and women might as well be from different planets, most of us would probably concur that the two genders frequently behave differently — and this divergence in behavior may also show up in the way that we invest. In fact, various studies and anecdotal evidence suggests these differences in the way that men and women invest: • Men tend to trade more often than women. Men seem to buy and sell investments more frequently than women. This difference could result in an advantage for women investors. For one thing, if women do trade less, they may incur fewer commission charges, fees and other expenses, all of which can eat into investment returns. Also, by holding investments longer, women may be able to take better advantage of market rallies. During the 20082009 financial crisis, for example, men were more likely than women to sell shares of stock at market lows, which led to bigger losses among male traders — and fewer gains when some of the stock values began to rise again — according to a study by Vanguard, a mutual fund company. • Men tend to invest more aggressively than women. Perhaps not surprisingly, men seem to be more willing to take risks with their investments. This trait can be both positive and negative. On the positive side, risk is associated with reward, so the more aggressive the investment, the greater the potential for growth. On the negative side, taking too much risk pretty much speaks for itself. Ideally, all investors

— men and women — should stick with investments that fit their individual risk tolerance. • Women are more likely to look at the “big picture.” Although both men and women investors want information, women seem to take a more “holistic” approach — that is, instead of focusing strictly on performance statistics, they tend to delve deeper into their investments’ background, competitive environment and other factors. This quest for additional knowledge may help explain why all-female investment clubs have achieved greater returns than all-male clubs, according to a study by the National Association of Investors Corp., which represents thousands of investment clubs across the country. • Men may be more optimistic about the financial markets. Some studies show that men are more optimistic about key economic indicators and future stock market performance. Optimism can be a valuable asset when it comes to investing; if you have confidence in the future, you’re more likely to invest for it, and to continue investing. On the other hand, false optimism may lead to over-confidence, which can have negative results for investors. Neither men nor women have a monopoly on positive investment behaviors; each gender can probably learn something from the other. Ultimately, of course, it’s your decision-making, not your x- or y-chromosomes, that will determine your ability to make progress toward your longterm goals. So educate yourself about your choices, and get the help you need from a financial professional, as you invest through the years. nnn

Santa shop vendors needed R.C. Waters Elementary P.I.K. and Graytown Elementary ABC Club will be hosting Santa’s Secret Shops for the 2011 Holiday Season. R.C. Waters shop will be held on Friday, Dec. 9, and Graytown’s shop will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 14. Santa’s Secret Shops are delightful in-school holiday shopping experiences for children. Children purchase “secret” gifts for family and friends in the safety and security of their own school. Rather than going with the traditional com-

panies that come in from another state, we are going with a local Santa’s Secret Shop. The way it works is that local businesses or individuals that wish to participate can set up a table in the gym at the school and have items for sale. The items should range between $1-$5. The students can then browse the selections and make their purchases. The parent group will provide lunch to all participating businesses and there is no charge to set up a table. Our goal is that children learn

the importance of saving their money, shopping local and planning their purchases in a positive learning environment, and that local businesses have a chance to get into the schools and interact with the children, spread name recognition and make a little extra money while clearing out inventory. We are currently looking for vendors. If your business would be interested in setting up a table for the Santa’s Secret Shop, call Valerie Winterfield at 419-898-0479.
