Mary Alice and I just got back from attending the Annual Conference of the Association of Free Community Papers in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. No doubt, you have heard much about the demise of newspapers. You don’t have to look far to see what is happening. I have now spent close to 30 years in the Free Newspaper business, and based on what I learned in Myrtle Beach, our industry is thriving and looking for growth, in spite of our economic woes. We have built a model where we can own and improve community information websites without pillaging our local “paid” circulation. I heard while driving from Toledo Airport to home on Monday that “paid” circulation papers lost 7% of their circulation just in the last six months. We are in the midst of a great “sea change” in the newspaper industry. However, prospects for the Free Community Paper model continue positive. Just don’t confuse one with the other. ––––––––– We had 133 entries in our Find Wylie contest this week. Our winner is Geri Lohman of Catawba who found Wylie in the Oak Harbor Golf Club ad on page 6A last week. Our “Win it on the Web” Contest winner this week is Virginia Kihlken chosen from 106 entries. Geri wins a $20 gift card from Friendship Food Stores and Gini wins $20 in gift certificates from Cleats. We’ll hide Wylie again this week and when you find him, fill out the Find Wylie Ad and drop it at our office (Beacon Place Shopping Center, next to Goodwill) or … click on Wylie on our website homepage, www.thebeacon.net or … click on the “Win it on the Web” icon. You could be our next winner. ––––––––– Lisa Underwood gave us our first ideas as to what could be done with the new “Green” Beacon newspaper delivery bags. She suggests making bows for your holiday trees, colorful and weather proof! Great idea, Lisa! ––––––––– Habitat for Humanity’s “Application Day” will be this Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to Noon at Trinity Methodist Church on Adams Street in Port Clinton. If you ever wanted to win your own home, but couldn’t quite make it financially, this could be a great opportunity. For more information, call Habitat for Humanity at 419-734-7074. ––––––––– A free workshop to develop skills to turn a layoff into meaningful employment will be conducted by Joan Washburn this Wednesday, May 5 from 6-9 p.m. or Thursday, May 6 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Sutton Center in Port Clinton. Joan has 27 years of successful sales, marketing and executive management experience and is a certified life coach. ––––––––– The Port Clinton Women’s Club will hold its annual spring Mother-to-Mother Sale this Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Port Clinton Knights of Columbus Hall at 109 E. Perry Street. Admission is 50-cents or a donation to the St. Vincent DePaul Society food pantry. ––––––––– The Immaculate Conception youth Group is selling Little Caesars Pizza kits until Friday, May 8. If you don’t know any of their members, you can order by calling Carol Fox at 419-734-1239. ––––––––– I got a nice note from Don Caldwell, who lives in Lakeside. He noted with all of the talk and political posturing about water-boarding and such, remember that it was just 67 years ago when a number of local soldiers got captured in the Philippines at the start of World War II, and were forced to endure the Bataan Death March…lest we forget. –––––––––

Wagoner Hosts Town Hall Friday State Senator Mark Wagoner will be holding an open door meeting on Friday, May 1, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Ida Rupp Library to provide an opportunity for his constituents to meet with him and to share ideas and concerns regarding state government issues. As a member of the Senate Finance & Financial Institutions Committee, Wagoner is playing an integral role in the development of the state’s two-year budget bill - House Bill 1. Though the bill is still pending in the Ohio House, Senators have begun informal hearings, recognizing that with a slow economy, limited resources and a deadline of June 30, this year’s budget will be especially challenging to pass. “From the school funding plan to concerns about the use of one-time federal funds to balance the state budget, there are a lot of issues on the table that could have a major impact on the people I represent,” Wagoner said. “I hope that this open door meeting will enable my constituents to share their views about the budget and any other issues affecting them.” The Ida Rupp Library is located at 310 Madison St, Port Clinton, OH 43452. Those who cannot make it on Friday, may always contact Senator Wagoner at his Columbus office via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com; via phone: (614) 466-8060 or by mail: Senator Mark Wagoner, Statehouse, Columbus, Ohio 43215.
DD The Duck No Longer Making Rounds DD the Pekin duck was hatched in April of 2007 and brought to the Wolfe family in early June that year. DD was raised by former Port Clinton Yacht Club caretaker Dick Wolfe. We are sorry to report that DD, Port Clinton's "Duck in the Truck" passed on last week.
Spring into Boating This Weekend Ken Alvey, President of the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association, cannot think of a better location than the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton for a spring boat show. “The location is perfect,” he said while drawing up plans for the fifth annual Catawba Island Boat Show that will be held May 1-3. “The golf course, restaurant, tennis courts and other amenities are all located right on the water, making it easy for us to come in and put on a boat show with fun attractions.” There will be no charges for admission or parking, features Alvey hopes will appeal to the public in
the current economic downturn. At no cost, visitors will be able to board and even test drive a broad selection of power and sail boats that will be displayed in the water and on land. Additionally, preparations are being made to host some golf and wine-themed activities. The event serves the Lake Erie islands region that has one of the highest numbers of boats per capita and greatest densities of boats
PC Schools Hire Middle School Principal After a state-wide search, Port Clinton Middle School will have a new principal in August 2009. At the April 21 Board of Education meeting, Carrie Sanchez was hired to replace retiring middle school principal Bob Nobles. The selection committee consisted of Patrick Adkins, Superintendent of Schools, district administrators and Board of Education members, plus a panel of middle school teachers. Sanchez is currently employed by the Bellevue School District as the Director of Choral Activities. She has also served as President of the Bellevue Education Association, Director of Dramatics and Co-Coordinator of the High Schools That Work/ Making Middle Schools Work Reform Initiative at Bellevue Schools. She was chosen for the position from over 40 applicants. Sanchez received her Bachelor of Arts in Education from Ohio Northern University and her Masters in Educational Administration from Bowling Green State University. "We look forward to the energy, enthusiasm, and leadership that Carrie will bring to Port Clinton Middle School. She is a dynamic leader and we look forward to her joining our team.” stated Adkins. She met the Port Clinton Middle School staff last week after school and stated, "I am thrilled to work in the Port Clinton City School District, a district I have admired for many years.” She added, “It’s exhilarating to see such motivated teachers who are connected with students and student success.” Carrie Sanchez resides in Port Clinton with her husband Paul and two daughters.

per acre of water in the entire Great Lakes Basin. Boating household expenditures in nearby counties are eight to ten times greater than the state average. “Boating is big here,” said Alvey. “We look at this as kind of a kick-off party for the 2009 boating season.” The boats will be docked in the Catawba Island Club Marina slips, allowing for easy access to both the club and the open water. Show hours are noon to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 1; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 2 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 3. Additional information can be found at catawbaislandboatshow. com.
Magruder Opens Urgent Care Unit Magruder Hospital is opening its urgent care service, located in the emergency department of the hospital, on Friday, May 1. Urgent care will be available seven days a week from Noon – 7:30 p.m. including holidays, and no appointment is needed. Jan Troeger, Magruder’s Vice-President of Nursing, said that a typical visit to urgent care would include minor types of medical conditions. “Things like ear infections, sprains, simple cuts, burns or the flu, are the types of conditions seen in urgent care,” said Troeger. When comparing the service to seeing a primary care physician, Troeger said urgent care is not a replacement. “This service is not something that is replacing the services of our area primary care physicians. Urgent care is a service for people who don’t have a life-threatening condition, but they cannot wait for an appointment to see their physician.” Adding the urgent care service stemmed from a marketing survey Magruder did in 2007. The survey showed the community wanted access to urgent care, and that those surveyed wanted the service to be located at the hospital. “I think most people felt that instead of having an urgent care service located away from the hospital, it would be better to have it in the emergency department. This way, if an urgent care need turns into an emergency, you are right where you need to be.” Troeger said that patients will be evaluated at Magruder’s emergency department, which will determine whether the medical condition is urgent care or an emergency. “We follow specific medical guidelines in determining what is urgent care and what is an emergency. Once again, that is the advantage of having Magruder’s urgent care within its emergency department,” said Troeger.

big controversy over a study made by Director of Homeland Security and former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano…because this study tells us that the greatest terrorist threat to America is its own military veterans, not the people we are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Needless to say, groups like the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard and the Coast Guard are stunned that such an assertion could be made. They question the methodology of the study and so far have gotten no real explanation. Apparently, Janet Napolitano herself is unsure of the study. So is participating agency the FBI. The only solution, then, is to enable these people to have first-hand knowledge of the situation. That would involve all of them serving in a combat zone in the above-named battlegrounds in order to learn whether serving in the military makes one a terrorist. The ship can load these people in a week. There’s no need for training, because they already know everything. Bon voyage and let us know what it’s like out there. Carl R. Goodwin Norwalk, OH
on September 5, 2009 at the Lakeview Park, Port Clinton. An attendee requested copies of a cookbook the UAW Local 497 women’s committee created, “UNITED WE COOK”. We have found a way to honor that request. As the years go by and time marches on, this cookbook contains recipes someone’s family member submitted. You can obtain a copy of this cookbook for the cost of printing - $5.20. Since the cookbook’s original’s printing, the publisher does not have the book in its system nor does the UAW Local 497 exist at this time. The cookbook is being copied by a local printer. This we feel keeps money in our local community. I say, “Think global but work local.” For one day a year we can eat together and catch up. We worked, fought, played and helped each other. After all, that is what families do. I wish everyone now going through or continuing to go through this difficult transition in their lives the very best. All Past Standard Products Employees… see you in September. To get a cookbook -Website: www.spreunion. info or contact Arlene at 419-732-2375. Patsy “Patti” Cook, Reunion Organizer Port Clinton
Dear Editor, Time does not stop. I feel for the individuals and companies that have to rethink, retool, and realign life as they know it to survive this trying time in our nation’s history. As most area people know, several years ago Standard Products closed. It had as many as 500 employees at one time. The company provided paid health insurance, holidays and a good living wage. In turn, we had money to spend and save, plus pay local, state, federal taxes. Most of us that worked there can absolutely relate to those who are now going through the process either for the first time in their life or again. Our annual Standards Products reunion is set for 1 p.m.
Dear Editor, Mon Ami Restaurant and Winery and The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit would like to thank Ottawa County and all of the supporters who contributed to the Ottawa County Food Drive held at Mon Ami Restaurant and Winery.

May is National Tourism Month In 1984 following a joint resolution passed by the U.S. Congress, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation establishing that one week each May would be designated as National Tourism Week. Citizens would be urged to observe that week with ceremonies and activities that recognized the economic, cultural and social benefits created by travel and tourism.
Each year since, the U.S. Travel Association has promoted this annual celebration and provided assistance to communities planning their own events. This year’s National Travel and Tourism Week will be celebrated nationally May 9-17 however the Lake Erie Shores & Islands Welcome Centers in Sandusky and Port Clinton will be holding a month-long celebration. Lake Erie Shores & Islands is a partnership between the visitor bureaus in Erie and Ottawa counties. Millions of people travel to this part of Ohio each year to enjoy the many family fun and outdoor recreation spots. Statistics show that these visitors spend $1.4 billion dollars annually and this spending touches nearly every type of business. Tourism dollars generally stay in the local economy and benefit each and every resident. During the month of May, area residents will be encouraged to get out and explore the many destinations in their home county and also “cross the bridge” to visit places in the neighboring county that they may not have experienced before. Doing this not only means an enjoyable day spent close to home, but helps our residents become better able to communicate to others just how special this area is. Helping promote the area is a way that residents can help bring additional tourism dollars to the region, and in turn benefit themselves. One way the visitor bureaus will be helping residents explore Lake Erie Shores & Islands is with special offers available with the new Shore Savings Card, a discount card that can be used at dozens of locations throughout the region. Card holders can save on attraction tickets, dining, lodging, golf, and many other activities. A special Cedar Point discount coupon is also included with the card. The Travel Planner is just one of the components of Lake Erie Shores & Islands’ 2009 marketing plan. This plan includes television, magazines, billboards, internet, public and media relations, and many other approaches. Audiences and geographic areas to which the Lake Erie Shores & Islands message will be shared are carefully selected and responses are tracked to make sure the choices are right. Everyone is invited to drop by one of the Welcome Centers this May to help celebrate National Tourism Month. Each Friday free refreshments will be offered and visitors will receive a little gift just for stopping in.
