TELLTALES BY JOHN SCHAFFNER

The Celebration of Life was held last Saturday at Lakeview Park in Port Clinton. One of the participants in the moving annual Survivor’s Walk was the smiling Taylor Wilhite who made the trek in a wheelchair. It was another beautiful event. ——————

We had 130 entries in our Find Wylie contest last week. Our winner is Lee Cuevas of PC who found Wylie hiding in the Ritzki’s Grill ad on page 12A. Lee wins a $20 gift certificate to Kokomo Bay. Our “Win it on the Web” winner is Ken Benton chosen from 70 entries. Ken wins a $20 gift card from Friendship Food Stores. Wylie will try to hide again this week and when you find him, fill out the Find Wylie Ad (on page 10A) and drop it at our office in the Beacon Place Shopping Center, next to Goodwill. Or, you can click on the Find Wylie icon on our Web site home page, www.thebeacon.net. Also, click on the “Win it on the Web” icon to register for a free gas card. —————— We had a couple stop in to our office this week that frequent East Harbor. They wondered why the shower and rest room facility at the beach there had been closed. I checked with Beth Ruth of ODNR and got the answer. The shower house at East Harbor State Park beach has developed structural issues. It is closed and will be torn down. Rest rooms and shower houses at the campgrounds remain open for campers and other facilities are available long the beaches. —————— Many thanks go out to event planner Kim Godfrey (Always Genuine Events) and her committee for planning a very successful Catawba/Marblehead Parade of Homes on June 20 and 21. We held our wrap up meeting on Monday and all of the participants reported the two-day event with lots of traffic. Over $3,000 was raised for the Humane Society during the Howl at the Moon Party on Thursday, June 18. —————— The Great Lakes Chapter of the Matthews Boat Owners Association will host its annual “Float-In” of classic yachts July 21-23 at The Crew’s Nest in Put-in-Bay. They want to welcome former Matthews Boat Company employees, who made these classics in Port Clinton from 1908 to 1974. All former employees will receive a free ride to The Bay aboard the Miller Ferry on Wednesday, July 22. For more information, call Bob Reynolds at 419-732-7858 or Laurie Schultz at 419-732-1353. —————— The Humane Society of Ottawa County will be holding a special Chicken & Ribs fundraiser this Sunday, July 5 at Community Markets in Port Clinton from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will also feature a Bake Sale at the event as well. —————— Lots of Music events are happening this weekend. On Friday, the 6-7-8-OH Band will be playing Mango Mama’s from 8 p.m. to midnight to raise money to help the PCHS cheerleaders attend camp. Tickets are $10. Also Friday night, my personal favorite local band … The Travelin’ Lounge Lizards will be at Mon Ami from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The Port Clinton Community Band’s holiday concert will be at 4 p.m. Saturday at the gazebo in Adams Street Park. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy some good old-time patriotic music before the fireworks show. Finally, on Sunday, Jess Riley and Associates will once again grace the stage at the Log Cabin in Oak Harbor at 6:30 p.m. They play some pretty nice bluegrass music. —————— Port Clinton Seniors (real seniors, not high school) will be selling raffle tickets for the Oct. 24 OSU-Minnesota game during the July 4 Old Fashion Ice Cream Social from 3:30 to 5:30 on the lawn of Trinity Methodist Church, across from the gazebo concert on Adams Street. Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. The drawing will be Sept. 14 at Senior Day at Put-in-Bay. —————— Port Clinton residents can purchase a “once and for all” parking pass to be used at the city parking lot on the Portage River for just $10. This makes for easier access to the Riverfront Live concerts held there on Friday and Saturday nights. —————— Mark July 12 on your calendar for the annual Arts and Crafts show sponsored by the Port Clinton Women’s Club and the Kiwanis Barbecue at Lakeview Park. Kiwanis will be serving their famous barbecue Beef, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, cole slaw, chips and cookies from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Remembering the Fourth of July Storm of 1969

Dark Wall of Water BY CHRIS MCBAIN-BERRY Look up. On July 4th, if the sky is clear and blue, consider yourself fortunate. Forty years ago to the day, Ottawa County was reeling under the worst storm in local history. One hundred mile-an-hour winds and 8 ½ inches of rain caused hundreds of thousands dollars worth of damage. Mother Nature’s contribution to the Fourth of July holiday lasted for about a day turning streets into streams flooding towns, homes and cars. Trees fell on houses. Cars were smashed. Although the storm hit from Adrian, Mich., to Findlay to Cleveland, Port Clinton and Oak Harbor seemed to be the hardest hit. Backed up storm sewers, flooded underpasses and ditches isolated Port Clinton and Oak Harbor. Richard Oxner and his wife Mamie from Springfield, Ohio, were fishing on Lake Erie when their boat overturned. They were pulled ashore by rescuers, but he was pronounced dead. Kassie Anderson told The Beacon that her uncle, Howard Moore, was visiting from Toledo on a fishing trip with his wife and two children when the boat capsized and he drowned. Several other people died from storm accidents. In Oak Harbor, the intersection at Locust and Main measured 5 feet of water flooding the car dealership on the corner. A portion of the roof at Riverview was lifted, and trailers in several areas were overturned. A power failure shut down the sewage treatment facility

Nugent's Canal area was particularly hard hit by the Fourth of July storm of 1969. The trailer belonged to Bob and Paula Young who also provided background information and this photo. pumps. In some cases, power was out for four or five days. Candles and ice were at the top of everyone’s wish list. Ninety stranded motorists found refuge at The Island House and slept on the lobby floor. Other sleeping quarters included Jefferson Elementary School and Gardy’s Laundromat. continued on page 2A...

Storm of 1969 Continued from front page The hot and humid July 4th began as any other summer day according to Paula Young of Port Clinton. “People were enjoying the company of family and guests while attempting to stay cool and setting up parties to celebrate the holiday,” she said in a letter to The Beacon.

The Government awarded and out regard for time or money… from the city departfederal funds to help reimburse the cost spent on storm ments to ordinary citizens. It was a time of sharing.

BeaconBits And here we are in the month of July already! The Independence Day holiday for many workers is this Friday, July 3, but the holiday actually commemorates an action that took place on July 4, 1776. That’s when we declared our country to be legally separated from England. On that day, the second Continental Congress voted to approve a BY VIRGINIA PARK “Resolution of Independence� that had been proposed by Richard

Henry Lee, of Virginia. Thomas Jefferson was an author of the Declaration of Independence (although it was prepared by a committee). Congress debated and revised it and then approved it July 4. Most of the men who signed the Declaration actually affixed their signatures to it on Aug. 2, 1776. Later, “In a remarkable series of coincidences, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, two founding fathers of the United States and the only two men who signed the Declaration of Independence to become president (of the United States), died on the same day, July 4, 1826, which was the United States’ 50th anniversary. President James Monroe died exactly five years later, on July 4, 1831, but he was not a signatory to the Declaration of Independence.â€? (All of the above information and the quotation are from “Wikipedia,â€? as it was found on the internet). Anyway, the “Fourth of Julyâ€? – as it is commonly called, is a national holiday and is celebrated with speeches, parades and fireworks among other things. Let’s all enjoy this national holiday to our freedom. And here is something I didn’t know or maybe just did not remember: a fifty-gun salute (one shot for each state) is fired on July 4 and that’s the only time that happens. In our area there will be an Independence Day concert at 2 p.m. on Saturday performed by the Toledo Symphony Concert Band. This event always attracts large crowds. So‌take your lawn chair (or a blanket) and go to the President Rutherford B. Hayes Home and Museum at Fremont. The concert starts at 2 p.m. and will feature “The National Anthemâ€?, “God Bless Americaâ€?, other patriotic music and the “1812 Overtureâ€?. The Overture will be punctuated with cannonfire, courtesy of Civil War re-enactors. Call 1-800-9987737 or visit rbhayes.org for additional information. If a concert band isn’t really your cup of tea, how about some other kind of music? The R.B. Hayes Verandah Concert Series is now underway, and folk songs will be featured on Wednesday, July 8. The music starts at 7 p.m. Again, you will need to provide your own seating because the concert is per-

formed on the porch and guests sit in the lawn. The Crescent Tavern Pavilion at Put-in-Bay is the location of the “Island Auction� on July 11 at 1 p.m. Items to be sold will be on display at about 10 a.m. Greg Peiffer of Catawba will serve as auctioneer. Put-inBay souvenirs, furniture and other great items will be offered. Of historic value will be items from the John Brown, Jr. family. These items are from what is called the Brown-Alexander Collection. If you go over to Put-inBay you will want to visit the museum of the Lake Erie Island Historical Society. This year there is an enlarged display about schools that have served the island over many decades. Over the 115 years the high school has been open, the graduating classes have averaged only five graduates. Five years had no graduates. The class of 1975 was largest (with 14 people graduating). Also, don’t miss the re-sale shop in back of the island museum. I’ve been there several times and always have found some good things to buy. Catawba Island Township Volunteer Fire Department will host its annual Chicken barbecue on Saturday, July 11, from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. The menu includes home cooked chicken barbecue, corn on the cob, baked beans, coleslaw, roll and dessert. The dinners are available for dine-in or carryout. Lis Brand can give you any information you need to join in the Magruder Hospital Auxiliary’s Annual “Golf Classic� on July 20 at Catawba Island Club. Lunch, dinner, greens fees, cart fees and prizes will be included. Call Lis at 419734-3131 at extension 3145 to get signed up. July always brings the Ottawa County Fair. This year it seems a little later than usual – July 20-26. Mark your calendar now because you won’t want to miss it. Senior Day at the fair will be Wednesday, July 22. The county’s Senior Resources Program and OSU Extension office have planned a great day for senior citizens to enjoy. It was really interesting this spring to watch baby robins in a nest just outside my guestroom window. There were at least three babies. I read about them so I could understand better what was happening. Here’s what I learned. Mama Robin lays three or four eggs, one each day. When all eggs are laid, she begins to incubate them so they all hatch at the same time. This takes two weeks. Then mama and papa feed their babies frequently; the food is regurgitated earthworms. Oh, yuk! When the babies are two weeks old they jump from the nest. If you find them on the ground, leave them alone. Don’t put them back in the nest because if it’s time for them to jump out, they will just jump out





I



again. Only one in four baby robins survives. Then robins live about six years. In a second nesting in the same year, Mama Robin lays two more eggs. And the process starts over. I counted the days assiduously. I first saw the baby robins on June 20. Two weeks from then would be July 4. I’m going to wait until July 7 and then get rid of that nest. I don’t want them back again because they are too close to my back deck and the parents made a big mess of it. I don’t want them there again – even if the babies were cute. They need to find another subdivision! You’ve heard the acronym “NIMBYâ€?, which means “not in my back yardâ€?? That’s how I feel about this messy family! My niece Roseann Hickman told me about a neat new place on Route 163 near and across the road from Fort Firelands on East Route 163. It is just west of The Natural Wave, and Roseann told me I should try the food there. I did, it’s good; I recommend it. This business is called “European Yummiesâ€? and the great deli has cabbage rolls, stuffed peppers, pieroghies, halushki and several kinds of specially made sausages. (The smoked kielbasa was great.) I bought several things to try, took them home, ate some the next day and really enjoyed it. Also, Doreen Kirk has a coffee shop in the same building; her “Make My Day Coffee CafĂŠâ€? features great coffee and other beverages with home baked desserts, including breakfast treats. Delivery is available. Call 419-709-3189 or 419504-2427 to make inquiries. A hint: try the pieroghies. They are just like homemade! (My spell-check on this computer does not like the words “pieroghiesâ€? or “halushkiâ€?.) “Kids Cabin Muralsâ€? are new this year at The Keeper’s House, 9999 Bayshore Road in Danbury Township. These are life size murals with holes for faces so people can have their pictures taken as Rachel and Benajah Wolcott. The house is open 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and the second Saturday of each month now through August 28. The volunteers at the House are hosting “An Authentick Supperâ€? on September 9 with a demonstration on hearth cooking beginning at 4:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. Just bring a potluck dish to share. If you can take an “old-timeâ€? or historic dish, that would be great. Begin thinking about this now. I think I’ll take something made out of eggs. The people on the Ohio frontier always had chickens, didn’t they? Later on this season I’ll remind you to make your reservation before September, but mark your calendar now if you want to see how the pioneers prepared their meals over an open hearth!

Senior Day at the Fair

New Summer Hours: Now open 7 days for Dinner

8am -8pm

Local entertainers from across the county will be performing for seniors at the 2009 Senior Citizen’s Day at the Ottawa County Fair on Wednesday July 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ottawa County Senior Resources has teamed up with the Ottawa County OSU Extension Office and the Ottawa County Senior Fair Board to sponsor this senior event. The Seniors’ Activity Committee along with the county’s six Senior Centers across the county helped to plan the day of fun. “We wanted the County Fair to be a good experience for the seniors”, said Juanita Mills Persely, Chair of the Seniors’ Activity Committee. In addition, Senior Resources, that sponsors the ‘free’ box lunch, will be taking reservations for lunch. “We want the seniors to enjoy the fair, and not worry about if there will be a lunch available,” said Dianne Martin Mortensen, Executive Coordinator of Senior Resources. The day will include free entertainment from Felix Manaia, Doc Nehls, Dave Ninke and Smile Awhile musical groups. The day will also include Bingo, wagon rides, coffee and donuts, blood pressure and sugars checks. In addition, the Senior Fair Board is once again providing golf carts for transporting seniors to and from the parking lots. Full day schedules are available at all local senior centers and through the Internet. There is a limited number of meals available, so make reservations early for lunch by calling the toll free Senior Resources Info Line at 1-877-888-9445 or locally at 419-732-7245. Leave your name, address and phone number to expedite the process. If you have any questions, contact Senior Resources at 1-877-898-6459 or 419-898-6459

On June 17th, twenty children got up early, loaded up a chartered bus filled with snacks and movies, and headed to Camp NEOSA in Carrollton, Ohio for a week filled with swimming, canoeing, hiking, outside sport activities, arts and crafts and lots of fun. Camp NEOSA (Northeast Ohio Salvation Army) is one of the many programs offered by The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit. Camp NEOSA provides an atmosphere where campers learn skills in developing their physical, social and spiritual needs. To assist in the development skills of each camper, the camp is aimed at teaching good health habits, providing an opportunity to con-

tribute to and receive from a group living experience and participating in activities that stimulate creativity and foster independence. The Port Clinton Service Unit has provided this opportunity to approximately 20 campers each year for the past eleven years. Currently, the organization is taking applications for the “Tools for School” program and needs bell ringers for “Christmas in July”. If interested in finding out more information on programs offered by the local office, call Maureen Saponari at (419) 732-ARMY (2769) or stop in at 1854 E. Perry Street, Suite # 800, Port Clinton.

The main competition was a mystery clue game which sent staff from one destination to another as they solved the clues. At the final destination their name was entered into a drawing for the grand prize of four Cedar Point tickets. Screams of joy exploded as Sarah Plotter, STNA, heard her name announced.

er Concept Rehab, Inc., presented an overview of home safety measures that can greatly reduce the risk of falling. Some of the valuable tips include: have a lamp or light switch you can easily reach from your bed/chair, use night lights in the bedroom, bathroom and hallways, sit on a bench or stool in the shower/tub, keep telephone and electrical cords out of pathways, Don’t Rush! Take your time and “get your balance” before you take that first step and install handrails near home entrances. Falls are the most common cause of non-fatal injury for seniors, often causing hospitalization and interfering with an independent life style. More than one third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States. Answering the following questions may help determine your risk of sustaining a fall. Do I exercise regularly? Have I done a home safety inspection? Do I wear the right shoes? Have I reviewed my medications? Do I need a Medical Alert device?

Around Ottawa County Lakeside to Host Hoover Potato Digger Dedication

Behind the grand façade of Hoover Auditorium, famed artists have performed and renowned speakers have lectured, yet this esteemed edifice would not be possible without the proven leadership and dedication of the Hoover family, who selflessly gave of their own money to pre-

serve the legacy and longevity of Lakeside, the Chautauqua on Lake Erie. At 3:15 p.m. Sunday, July 5 at the corner of Walnut Avenue and Fourth Street behind Hoover Auditorium, Lakeside will dedicate an original Hoover Potato Digger that was sold to generate funds to support this

Edgewood Honors Dads

“Resident and loving father of four, Don Provonsil, enjoys his juice. Blueberry pancakes smothered in syrup were on the menu Father’s Day for all the dads at Edgewood to enjoy. Pancakes and sausage links cooked to perfection on the griddle by Activity Assistant Sally Phillips were served with a choice of juice and coffee. Mouths were watering as the enticing aroma of a breakfast “fit for a king” permeated the facility. “The pancakes were great!” commented resident Don Provonsil smiling. “I ate several.” This was Edgewood’s way of honoring the men who selflessly protected, nurtured and guided the next generation of parents.

Lakeside Women’s Club to Host Quilt Show

Three area Quilt Stores will settle into the historic Train Depot in Lakeside on Friday and Saturday, July 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. to provide a one stop shopping experience for area quilters and quilt enthusiasts. A consignment shop featuring local quilters will be open throughout the event, providing an

opportunity for shoppers to pick up a unique handcrafted item. The Train Depot is located at Seventh Street, between Central and Cedar Avenues. Guests are encouraged to use the Lakeside Main Gate, which is located on Rte. 163, where they will be able to purchase a three hour pass for $5.

Chautauqua community. Prior to the dedication ceremony, Lisa Yako will deliver the Heritage Society Lecture at 2 p.m. in Orchestra Hall regarding the history behind the Hoover family and potato digger. All are welcome to attend and help Lakeside celebrate. Thanks to Clayton Werden, Jr. and family, the Hoover Potato Digger has a new permanent home in Lakeside at Walnut Avenue and Fourth Street. The digger was originally gifted by the Lakeside Association to the Heritage Society last fall. Thanks to its members and the hard work of Carol and Joe Morgan, they have helped Lakeside realize the rich history of this farming implement and its inventor, Isaac W. Hoover. The Werdens wanted to celebrate this potato digging wonder, which has supported many projects and advancements within Lakeside. The Hoover Potato Digger Pavilion was built this spring, thanks to the generous donations and support of the Werden family. Born in 1845 to John and Elizabeth Hoover, Isaac grew up in the rural Ohio countryside, which prompted his decision to become a potato farmer. He was inspired by his daily work to invent a po-

tato digger that would produce a larger and more efficient potato harvest. He received a patent on May 15, 1885, which led to the founding of the Hoover Manufacturing Company, located in Avery, Ohio. By 1916, the company had expanded worldwide, manufacturing 5,000 machines per year. Following a successful business career, the company was sold to John Deere Plow Company in 1926. Isaac and his wife, Hannah, were among the first investors in Lakeside. Enamored by the community, the couple built a lakefront cottage in 1918. Following in his parents’ footsteps, Arthur L. Hoover became an instrumental community member and business leader, and was eventually appointed as Lakeside General Manager in 1926. Between Arthur and Isaac Hoover, Lakeside remained stable during the Great Depression. During Arthur’s tenure as General Manager, 1926-46, the community witnessed a great renewal with the building of Orchestra Hall, the Administration Building and Central Auditorium, which was later renamed in his honor. He is credited with bringing wellknown individuals to Lakeside, including Amelia Earhart, Elea-

nor Roosevelt and Marian Anderson. Entertainment was said to have evolved during Hoover’s administration. Lakeside is entering another era of great renewal, by renovating and upgrading facilities throughout the community. The Hoover Potato Digger is testament to what Lakesiders have been able to preserve and grow in this Chautauqua, regardless of the world’s state of economy. Clayton Werden, Jr. stated, “I’ve wanted to do something for Lakeside that would last forever.” He continued, “We’ve helped support several projects in Hoover Auditorium, and the potato project was ideal.” All are invited to attend the Hoover Potato Digger Dedication. Lakeside is a gated community; admission to the grounds requires a one-day gate pass of $17 (adult), $12 (youth ages 1218) and children under the age of five and guests over 90 are free. Partial day passes are available for up to three hours for $5. Parking on the grounds requires a daily auto fee of $7, or there are free parking lots located off campus.

Financial Focus Declare Your Financial Independence Day As a nation, we will soon celebrate Independence Day with fireworks, picnics and parades. And as citizens, it’s good to reflect on the many freedoms we enjoy in this country. But as individuals, we define freedom in many different ways — and one of the most important of these could be financial freedom. That’s why you GARY COON, EDWARD JONES may want to take the steps necessary INVESTMENTS to eventually declare your own Financial Independence Day. For example, consider the following: •Pay yourself first. In difficult economic times, it can be hard to set aside money for your future. But if you can afford it, try “paying yourself first” by having some money moved automatically each month from your checking or savings account to an investment. If you never actually “see” the money, you probably won’t miss it, and over time, you may be pleased by the growth in your investment. As your salary goes up, consider increasing the amount you automatically invest. •Invest for growth. Given the most recent recession, it’s understandable that many people would shy away from investments whose principal may fluctuate. It’s understandable but not necessarily wise — because historically these investments can possibly offer more potential for growth when a recession ends. And you’ll likely need this growth if you’re going to become financially independent. Although past performance is not an indication of future results, by holding these investments for the long term, you may be able to lower the risk involved, because

over time, quality investments tend to overcome “down” periods and trend upward. You can also help control risk by including some fixed-income vehicles, such as bonds and certificates of deposit, in your portfolio. •Reduce your debts. Debt may be your biggest obstacle to financial independence. It may take a fair amount of time to get rid of your debts, but consider your current situation and the options available to you, which might include evaluating your largest debts, paying down highrate credit cards and avoiding new loans whenever possible. For example, mortgage rates are low compared to historical measures, so you might consider refinancing your existing mortgage to lower your monthly payment. This would give you additional cash flow that you could use to pay off credit card debt. •Help protect your income. If you were to become ill or injured, and could not work for an extended time period, you might jeopardize your family’s well-being and your prospects for financial independence. That’s why you may want to consider purchasing a disability insurance policy. If you work for a large company, your employer may offer this coverage, but it might not be sufficient, so you may need to add some private coverage. And if you work for a small company or are self-employed, you’ll need to find disability coverage on your own. True, it’s an added expense — but it’s also an investment in your financial future. Financial freedom, like other types of liberty, does not always come easily. To achieve it, you’ll likely have to work hard. But it will be well worth the effort when your own Financial Independence Day does arrive. This article was provided by Edward Jones.
