TellTales

Ten years and going strong

BY JOHN SCHAFFNER

The City of Port Clinton has launched a new initiative on the Internet. Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester has had a six-minute video professionally produced by part-time local resident John Seidell touting the city and, especially, the Water Works property for economic development. The video has been posted on Hymore-Tester YouTube and can also be seen on www.thebeacon.net and the WPCR Web site at www.portclintonradio.com. ——— We had 111 entries to our Find Wylie Contest this week. Our winner is Bertha Sanns, of Port Clinton, who found Wylie hiding in the Herman’s Furniture ad on page 9A. Bertha wins a pass to Monsoon Lagoon. Our “Win it on the Web” contest winner this week is Carolyn Apotsos, of Marblehead, who was selected from among 51 entries. She wins a $20 Friendship Food Stores Gas Card. We’ll be hiding Wylie again this week. When you find him, just drop us a note at our office or click on the Find Wylie icon online at www.thebeacon.net. While you’re there, just click on the Win it on the Web icon and enter yourself for a $20 gas card also. Good luck! ——— I am very sorry to learn of the death of Annette Reider, who was one of my mentors in media. For many years, Annette and her husband Bob published the Ottawa County Daily News and in 1961, they started WRWR radio, which is where I got my start. Annette and I have remained friends ever since. Her son Bobb called me Monday night with the sad news. We also lost Micki Herl following a courageous battle with cancer last weekend. She too was a great lady. ——— There will be a Family Fun Day at Community Markets in Port Clinton this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be root beer floats for $1, games, crafts and prizes for the kids, a DJ, a hamburger and hot dog cookout and much more. Wylie Walleye will also make an appearance. ——— They are having a “Dollar Dawgs and Buck Beers” open house Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Nor’Easter Club off Ohio 53 North. The times are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and tours of both the Nor’Easter Club and the new Nor’Easter Cove condominiums are included as well as a mini boat show. ——— This Sunday, the Log Cabin in Oak Harbor welcomes back the “Four Corners Gospel Quartet” starting at 6:30 p.m. Speaking of cabins: The fireplace cooking demonstration at the Wolcott Keeper’s House, East Bayshore Road, Marblehead, has been rescheduled. The class will be 1 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 25. ——— State Sen. Karen Gillmor will be the featured speaker at the Ottawa County fourth Thursday Republican Lunch Bunch at the Port Clinton Elks Lodge on Buckeye Boulevard at noon. No reservations are necessary. ——— St. Joseph Catholic Church Religious Education is registering students grades K-12. For information, contact Carol at the church office at 419-798-4177. ——— Jack Huston got up last Sunday morning and looked outside his Catawba home and saw a doe with a fawn, not exactly a novel event. However, the fawn was a pure albino snowy white color and very tiny. ——— State Teachers Retirement System Executive Director Michael Nehf will be the speaker for the Thursday, Aug. 27, meeting of the Ottawa County Retired Teachers Association at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Post on Sherman Street in Elmore. To make reservations, contact Joyce Doust at 419-635-2446.

Leadership Ottawa County is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with the biggest class yet. Eighteen people will take part in the community leadership development program that seeks to prepare, involve and sustain leaders from diverse backgrounds. Participants have the ability to broaden their leadership skills as well as establish a personal and professional network of individuals who are active in the community. “People who have lived here 40 and 50 years say ‘I never knew that about Ottawa County,’” said LOC’s board president and 2004 grad Cathy Allen. “They really value the networking opportunities they get whether its classmates, speakers, alumni …” The program was developed by a group of community leaders from local organizations including the OSU Extension Office, United Way and Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce. Former OSU Extension educator Jim Wiedenheft served as first president of the board and he, along with other founders, developed a curriculum based on similar programs. Members of that first board helped with each class. “I was involved with planning and conducting a couple of the monthly classes based on the outline of leadership

Members of the Leadership class tour local facilities and learn about industry throughout the county. topics and local information that was developed,” said Marcia Jess, an OSU Extension educator who for the past four years has served as LOC Program Director. “In this capacity, I work with the Curriculum Committee to set agendas for the year. Then I plan, organize and attend each

AnnMarie Radigan shows off her winnings Saturday from one of four 50/50 raffles drawn at Gem Beach Rocks ... Again. The event, to benefit The United Way, drew people from all over the community and the state to listen to live music by Phil Dirt and the Dozers, Pumping Ethyl, Wally and the Beavs, The Divide and Colin Dussault’s Blues Project.

Libraries cut hours after slash in state funding Local libraries are feeling the effects of the state’s recently approved budget. Funding to area facilities has been slashed by more than 30 percent and so far in Port Clinton and Oak Harbor, hours are the first things to go. Ida Rupp Public Library will now be closed Wednesdays and Sundays with shortened hours the rest of the week: 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday; and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Ida Rupp anticipates a 35 percent reduction in funding because of the cuts that became effective retroactively to July 1. The Oak Harbor Public Library is currently operating with a 31 percent decrease in funding. As a result, that facility has also reduced its hours of operations. The library will be closed Sundays but open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Additional reductions will likely continue into the future — including reductions in workers and supplies. “Staffing cuts will be announced before Sept. 1,” said Barbara Wenzinger, Ida Rupp Board president. “Without a director it makes it very difficult to work through these changes.” Former director James Crawford recently left his post after 10 years at the facility to accept the position of director of the Lakewood Public Library. The search for his replacement has been put on hold. “We’ve had to raise our prices on copies and of course we won’t be ordering as many materials for a while,” said Robin Vail, head clerk at the Oak Harbor Library. With more and more people coming in to file for unemployment benefits and search for jobs, the crowd is still the same, just forced to work faster and with more competition for machines. “I’ve seen quite an increase of people coming in,” Vail said. As for the future of the facilities, a lot is still unknown. “We’re still trying to figure out exactly where we stand,” said Wenzinger. “At this point, we are going to have to consider an operating levy.”

SoundOff Open letter to Sens. George Voinovich and Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcy Kaptur: I usually make the small amount of correspondence that I send to you in a one-page letter because I am led to believe that you won’t read past one page. I am making an exception and I hope that you will too. In the past I didn’t feel the need to correspond with you, but lately I believe that I don’t have a choice. I am not part of a mob, and I am certainly not unAmerican. But I am really upset about the management by crisis being exhibited by both the executive and legislative branches of our government. Starting last October, I have observed a hurry-up-and-get-it-done mentality by congress. You don’t take time to read the bills let alone study them to come up with a viable solution to something that may or may not be a problem in the first place.

Due to the recent cuts in State funding to Ohio’s public libraries, The Board of Trustees of the Ida Rupp Public Library have found it necessary to cut library hours, staffing, and services. Effective September 1, 2009 THE NEW LIBRARY HOURS ARE AS FOLLOWS: Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

11:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. 11:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. CLOSED 11:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. 11:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. CLOSED

Just because you hear someone say that the sky is falling, you don’t need to start a panic to pass bills that do not help those of us in your districts. Your terms of office are measured in years not weeks. This letter is aimed at both parties. From the polls that I have seen the approval rating of congress is as low as 17 percent and as high as 24 percent. This means that the people in this country are very unhappy with your performance. They are probably as tired as I am of having programs formed upon us that require higher taxes. You can’t tell me that we can continue the spending program that you are on that will not have to be paid for eventually. I can’t see burdening our grandchildren with all of the debt that this Congress is imposing on us. You all seem to be more concerned with the illegal aliens than you are for the people who have made this country a success. How about taking the money that you want to spend on health care for them and instead use that money to send them back where they came from and secure our borders? This has been done in the past and could be done again today with the proper leadership. This would also greatly reduce the numbers of people that don’t have healthcare. Speaking of health care. I hear that Medicare and Medicaid are going broke. Surprise, surprise. The government runs the post office, Amtrak, social security and the department of energy that all are losing money. I heard the president say that UPS and FedEx are making money. It seems that with good management the post office and the others could too. We the taxpayers are funding these programs that you say are a bargain. But all of the money that you spend is tax dollars, the government doesn’t have any money except our tax dollars. So now you want to impose a health care program (that according to the latest polls) most of us Americans do not want. How about a study on a fix for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, etc. in lieu of forcing a new government-run program of socialized medicine on us. If you are bent on passing a bill, how about putting it in a referendum on which we can all vote. While I am at it, I think that all of you should be able to think for yourselves. I am tired of hearing that the other party did it to us so now we are going to do it to them. Sounds like a bunch of school kids. Don’t separate th parties by an aisle, this encourages cronyism. Maybe if you seated yourselves in alphabetical order we could have more dialog. Open up all of your meetings. Don’t continue to shut members of the other party out. Above all, don’t put yourselves above the people that you are supposed to represent. You have the best health care programs, the most lucrative retirement programs, all paid for by the taxpayers. Oh yea, I know that you pay

each monthly session and work directly with class members.”  The class includes sessions on leadership skills, team building, problem solving and conflict resolution, communication and public speaking, boardsmanship, business and economic development, agriculture and the environment, government structure, history and heritage of Ottawa County, education and diversity, justice and law enforcement, health and human services, and tourism. The class meets from 1 to 9 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month September through May with meeting locations around the county. “In a way, it is like kindergarten: throughout a ninemonth class, you meet new people, make new friends, Saturday and develop and polish some basic skills,” said Jess. th The participants also attend an all-day retreat and develop a community service 9:00 am - Noon project.

for your own health care, but with the government checks that are funded by the taxpayers. I think that you should be under the social security program like the people that you represent, and then have to put in at least 20 years for retirement again like the people that you represent (another reason for term limits). Any new health care bill should include the provision that all members of the executive, judicial and legislative branches of our government must be under the new government plan. I believe that the town hall meetings are the place to state how you feel about health care. But I am led to believe that the majority of the townspeople don’t get the warning about what and where the meetings will be. I understand that in Columbus, the town hall meeting was filled with people who had received e-mails from the White House long before the meeting was announced to the public. I hope that this is wrong. I have also heard the overflow room was not filled, but the public was turned away. If the people appear to be extremely unhappy it is because the people are extremely unhappy. If it sounds like I am saying that you put yourselves above the people that you represent, you are right. What is fair for you should be fair for all. Let me make some bullet points for you: • Balance the budget. • Quit management by crisis. • Study and solve the existing problems first. • Reduce taxes to encourage the economy • Think fairly; don’t impose programs we question on us. • Be Fair. Be like the people that you represent. • Don’t turn your back on the people that made this country great. • Don’t exempt yourselves from programs that affect the rest of the American people. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Retired Gen. Phil and Carol Williams Dear Editor, As a moderate Democrat I support most of the President’s agenda. Trying to cut health care costs and improve coverage will be a formidable challenge in the face of savage opposition from the powerful lobbies of the more than 400 for-profit health insurance companies. There is one thing I don’t understand. The Republican mantra is that the government health care plan would be a catastrophe. Why, then, don’t they work to abolish Medicaid and Medicare, the two massive government programs that are already in place? Makes you wonder. Phoebe Borman Port Clinton and Put-in-Bay

Kick off event / orientation The 2009 Leadership Ottawa County class kick off event will be 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Oak Harbor Golf Club. All alumni are invited to attend as well as any founding member of the program.

And the group is looking to set an example. “This board is trying to be an exemplary board of excellence,” said Chip Palazzo, board marketing and public relations chairman and Class of 2008 graduate. As part of that effort, Allen says the board tries to be responsive to surveys from the class participants, set clearly defined goals and work with clear agendas and meeting minutes. “We want people to want to serve,” she said. “We strive to provide a relevant leadership program to develop, strengthen and enrich leaders for Ottawa County,” said Jess. According to Allen, this year’s class is the most diverse yet thanks to the board’s outreach efforts to small businesses. Other goals the board has set for the future of the program include getting its Web site up and running and ensuring a whole-county focus. LOC is open to all adults who live or work in Ottawa County. “We encourage individuals who currently hold leadership positions in their community or their company to participate,” said Jess. “Any enthusiastic and actively involved person who would like to broaden their leadership experience is welcome.” For information, to join the mailing list or apply for the 2010 class, call administrative assistant Shiela Powell at 419-366-7420 or e-mail leadershipottawacounty@gmail. com. According to Marcia Jess: “I think this quote from a recent graduate says a lot: ‘During almost every class session, we visited someplace I had never been or even heard about. Aside from the actual class experience and business networking that occurred, I developed friendships that will last for years to come.’”

Here is a note of historical interest. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of The Battle of Lake Erie (fought in 1813), the Perry Group on South Bass Island — with members from practically everywhere — is swinging into action. In beginning preparations for 2013, the organization has formed four new committees. Membership, programming, fundraising and the actual Bicentennial Celebration itself will be the focus of these groups. The organization is also now actively recruiting new members. They work directly with the staff of the Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial to sup-

BUT YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR DECISIONS. Sometimes the market reacts poorly to changes in the economy. 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 make sure you’re in control of where you want to go and how you’ll potentially get there. Call or visit your local financial advisor today.

This first event, to be held at the historic Doller House, will be that day following the Perry Group’s annual meeting. Then on Saturday, Sept. 12, a grand parade begins at 2:15 p.m. It travels through downtown Put-in-Bay and ends at the Visitors Center at Perry’s Monument. On that same weekend there will be a War of 1812 military encampment.

Citing an article in the “New York Times,� written by Tara Parker Pope, the local newsletter says that an active social life appears to delay memory loss as people age. It seems that strong social ties with family, friends and community groups can help preserve the health of our brains as we age. Conversely, “social isolation may be an important risk factor for cognitive decline.� The article suggests that when people are helping to care for an elderly person, it’s important to realize that for the person to have someone to count on or to lean on for support may not be as important as helping the elderly person be completely engaged and participating in our society. There are many avenues to accomplish this. Family networks can help, friendship networks can help — even social engagement by volunteering in civic organizations can help. “People don’t have to have all of these things. They just have to have some breadth and diversity in the kinds of networks and ties they have in a community.� ——— The brig “Niagara� has returned to Put-in-Bay this week.

This movie is a dramatic retelling of the post-Watergate interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former President Richard Nixon. “Frost/Nixon� received nine awards and 36 nominations for screenplay, acting, directing and best film, including five Oscar nominations. A best actor nomination went to Frank Langhella, who played Nixon. The following week, at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, you can view “Ninotchka� (1939). In this romantic comedy, Greta Garbo plays a stern Russian woman sent to Paris on official business who finds herself attracted to a man who represents everything she is supposed to detest. “Ninotchka� received Oscar nominations for acting, writing and best picture.

"For the past 45 years, I have smoked 1 to 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I tried EVERYTHING to quit many times. After only one hypnosis session with David Prudhomme I am now a non-smoker. There have been no cravings and no anxious moments. I am now in control of my life. Thank you, Dave." — Ed Verkin, Former Federal Agent

Stop Smoking for Good with Hypnosis Hypnosis has helped millions of people easily quit smoking for good after the first session, without gaining weight and without the need for willpower. Hypnosis allows you to change your subconscious mind to match you conscious desire to be a non-smoker. A study presented October 22, 2007 at the annual meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians found that hypnosis was more than twice as effective as quitting “cold turkey,” and over three times as effective as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).

Health Oak Harbor woman crowned queen for weight loss MILWAUKEE — Healthy competition can be a strong motivator for anyone aiming to improve their wellness. Members of TOPS Club — Take Off Pounds Sensibly — were recently recognized for their weight-loss efforts at the organization’s annual three-day celebration, International Recognition Days, in Orlando. The festivity honored TOPS award winners from all over the world who, with determination, perseverance, and support from fellow members, achieved the greatest weight loss in their category in 2008. Jody Blausey, of Oak Harbor, was named

the Ohio Queen with a total weight loss of 130.75 pounds. “Our founder, Esther Manz, felt that anyone who achieved their goal of losing weight should be treated like royalty,” says TOPS president Barbara Cady. “Though purely symbolic, these winners embody the best of what TOPS is all about: healthier lifestyles, personal accomplishment, and overall wellness.  TOPS has been by these members’ sides every step of the way on their weight-loss journey and is proud to provide the support and motivation to sustain their remarkable achievements.”

Net books and digital readers, provided by stimulus grant money, were piloted in fourth-grade classrooms during the 2008– 2009 school year with positive feedback from teachers and students. Net books are

Experience baseball’s history by watching the Squires FREMONT — The Spiegel Grove Squires are devoted to playing base ball the way it was played when the sport was created (and its name was two words). Sponsored by the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, the Squires host their next home match at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23. Their opponents are the Cincinnati Buckeyes. Admission is free. Members of the Spiegel Grove Squires are volunteers. Their interest in base ball and history inspires them to demonstrate the sport as it existed in the 1860s. The “ballists” (19th-century word for players) wear reproduction uniforms and use peri-

od-style equipment. You won’t see gloves in use. Fielded balls are caught barehanded, with an out being called even if the ball is caught after a bounce. Not only are the bats and balls very different from today’s equipment, so are the rules of play. A player who swears, argues with the umpire or leaves his shirt tail untucked faces a fine. Respect for other ballists and polite behavior are the rule. The Squires’ home matches are played in the open field behind the Hayes Museum. The final home match of the season is 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30, with the Clodbuster Base Ball Club.

In Ottawa County, a specialized docket program commonly called a Family Dependency Treatment Court has been developed. Family Dependency Treatment Court models indicate that families involved with Family Dependency Treatment Courts will reunify with their children more quickly, engage in treatment more quickly and stay in treatment longer than non-Family Dependency Treatment Court parents. The program is made possible by a grant through the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Deadline for WSOS cooling assistance nears In July, the Summer Cooling Program operated by WSOS Community Action Commission, provided assistance with air conditions and electric bill payments to 258 households for a total of $32,007 compared to 162 households and $14,467 for the same period last year. The program, which ends Aug. 31, is available to income-eligible households in the four-county area of Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa and Seneca counties where there is a person with a certifiable medical condition relieved by the use of an air conditioner or a household member 60 years of age or older. The program pays for either an air conditioner or electric bills up to $175 for those 60 years of age or older. Any household with no member 60 years of age or older, but a member with a certifiable medical condition of a breathing disorder can receive assistance on an electric bill up to $175 only. In July, the program assisted 213 households with electric bill payments and 45 households with air conditioners. In 2007, this program served 371 households by the end of July at a cost of $75,373. However, beginning last year, the program was cut to only two months at a much lower funding level.

VFW Auxiliary’s polka fest a success By Mary Ann Monak The Marblehead Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7572 Ladies Auxiliary held its annual fundraising polka fest from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug 8. This event was the Whitey Priebe Polka Fest in loving memory of Post 7572 comrade Whitey Priebe, who originated this festive occasion in 2000. Ladies Auxiliary members assisting, providing entrees and supporting President Debbie Garrard included Jean Dewey, Camille Sobolewski, Blanche Baillie, Donna Ungvarsky, Elaine Roth, Mary Glovinsky, Carol Hamit, Alice Peroni, Lilah Groene, Donna Renton, Roseann O’Keeffe, Mary Ann Monak and Jeanne Snowball, with her 7-month old daughter Josie. Special thanks Commander Bob Peroni of the welcoming committee; to comrades Bob Dewey, Terry Rahner, Dave Groene, Pat O’Keeffe, Dave Glick and Dan Monak; and to Men’s Auxiliary President Mike Garrard with members Terry Glovinsky, Frank Zalar, John Batcha; and post members Harvey McGiver, Doc McCormick and Dan Elchisco for their support. Comrades Dale Fitterling, Bill Bixler, Dave Emrey, Gary Youndt, Billy Beck and Ed Spevak of VFW Post 8795 in Lancaster County, Pa., were there to support this event.

Timing for their fishing trip was perfect for the second year in a row. John and Libby Batcha, with their children Nick, Kate and Anna added to the afternoon fun and brought back pleasant memories of John’s father, past Commander Emil Batcha playing the drums to many polkas and the

music our families loved. Another former drummer in the Mike Batcha band was Anthony “Jim” Glovinsky, father of Terry Glovinsky. Terry and Mary were there to enjoy the afternoon fun and to promote Polish Pride. “Happy Campers” were Donna Renton, Harvey McGiver, Edna Zalar, Bob Dewey, Dale M. Fitterling of Pennsylvania VFW Post 8795, and Jessica Garrard. “Happy birthdays to John Batcha, Jean Dewey and Debbie Garrard. Thank you to Frank Moravcik and the members of his band for bringing to VFW Post 7572 the music of our lives; a posthumous thank you to Whitey Priebe, who introduced Frank Moravcik to us; thank you to the workers Commander Bob Peroni, Quartermaster Bob Dewey, Jean Dewey, Camille Sobolewski, Blanche Baillie, Donna Ungvarsky, Alice Peroni, and Carol Hamit; thank you to Jim Leihenseder for his special donation; and to Jessica Garrard for the donation from her 50/50 drawing winnings. Thank you to all who enjoyed an afternoon of fun, while supporting our program to fight cancer; the dreaded disease that took Whitey Priebe and many of our loved ones from us.

Wagoner and Murray host Lake Erie Shores & Islands Legislative Days Over two days, more than 100 members of the Ohio General Assembly, state officials and other key policy makers recently had the opportunity to participate in activities and events that showcased the region’s travel and tourism industry and the importance of Lake Erie to the state as a whole as part of Legislative Days. State Sen. Mark Wagoner (R-Ottawa Hills) and State Rep. Dennis Murray (DSandusky) hosted the event.  “I am pleased that so many legislators joined Representative Murray and me for two full days on Lake Erie. Lake Erie Shores & Islands Legislative Days gave us the opportunity to emphasize not only the impor-

tance of having a healthy Lake Erie, but also the importance of travel and tourism to our area. I want to thank everyone who volunteered their time and provided the resources to make this event possible,” Wagoner said. “Lake Erie is Ohio’s single greatest natural resource. The lake and its shoreline are significant drivers of the local economy,” Murray said. “Legislative Days highlighted the linkage between obtaining both present and future returns on these assets because the Lake Erie of the 1970s produced few tourists or fish while the Lake Erie of 2009 yields a bountiful harvest of both. It was important for key decision makers from around the state to learn about Lake Erie’s past suc-

cess as well as looming and emerging challenges.” Participants in Lake Erie Shores & Island Legislative Days enjoyed: a luncheon at the Crescent Pavilion followed by a tour at Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial; a tour of Gibraltar Island, which included Cooke’s Castle, Ohio State’s Stone Laboratory, information on diving Lake Erie, water snake exhibits and trips on a research vessel; an informational dinner at Niagara Event Center which featured keynote speaker Amir Eylon, Ohio State Tourism Director; a choice of tours at Kelleys, Middle Bass or South Bass Islands; a luncheon highlighting Ohio Tourism at Crew’s Nest Pavilion, and

for those who elected to extend their stay, a round of golf at Sawmill Creek Golf Course or a day trip to Cedar Point. Wagoner noted that while many participants were aware of the recreational opportunities in the region when they came, he was pleased that more people had learned about the quality programs and research conducted at Stone Lab by the time they left. Stone Laboratory is a teaching and research facility for The Ohio State University and the oldest freshwater biological field station in the United States. Here, researchers from 12 agencies and academic institutions work to improve the overall health of the Great Lakes.

Danbury Township Trustees At the regular meeting of the Danbury Township Board of Trustees Aug. 12, the following business was conducted: • Police Chief Mike Meisler reported 533 incidents in July and 201 incidents to date in August. • Zoning Inspector Rhonda Botti Sowers reported nine zoning permits processed in July and three permits during the month of August to date • The Board of Zoning Appeals will hold two hearings on Aug. 19 beginning at 6:30 p.m. • Trustees received notice that the Ottawa County Common Pleas Court has ruled in favor of the Board of Zoning Appeals which denied two variances in 2007 to Lakeside property owner Gerry Drackett. • Following receipt of construction guidelines from the county engineer, trustees will negotiate an agreement with the Lakeside Association for a crosswalk on Erie Beach Road at North Shore Boulevard. Lakeside has agreed to stripe and maintain the crosswalk. • The nuisance complaint at 238 Sunnydale has been corrected and the complaint regarding Lot 26 of West Harbor Landings is still pending. • Property at 202 Sunnydale was again declared a nuisance and notification sent to mow the property or trustees will order the work done. • The board approved a resolution authorizing collection of a 3 percent video service provider fee. This fee was previously collected as a 3 percent cable franchise fee.

• Discussion continued regarding a Natureworks grant-funded shelter house at Meadowbrook. • The board received an opinion from the Ethics Commission regarding trustee Dave Hirt and purchases from his employer, Bill’s Implement which is owned by his brother. The opinion stated that purchases will not constitute a violation of the ethics law if certain conditions are met. The Commission, however, does not have statutory authority to interpret ORC 511.13 as it applies to public contracts and recommended the board consult with the township’s legal counsel regarding this section. Trustees will seek further advice from the county prosecutor. • Trustees authorized Keith Heilman Excavating to mow phragmite at Meadowbrook at a cost of $275. • A resolution was adopted to initiate text amendments converting the zoning resolution to a digital Clearzoning format. • A request was received to lower the speed limit on Mistic Bay Boulevard and Mistic Bay Point. The request will be submitted to the county engineer. • Trustees approved the transfer of $500,000 from the Marblehead Bank checking account to STAR Ohio investment following the receipt of the second half property tax settlement. • July financial reports were approved as were bills in the amount of $104,733.42. • Trustees held an executive session to discuss purchase of property.

Classes start Sept. 8 and generally meet two or three times a week for three hours. The course covers common tax topics seen in the field by

preparers, including: • Credits, deductions and charitable contributions • Health savings accounts • Stock sales, retirement planning and income • Mortgage interest • Home offices, self-employed income and wages Once hired, H&R Block tax professionals will participate in ongoing training to stay apprised of the latest tax law changes.

Ohio Wildlife Council hears proposed fishery management changes COLUMBUS — The Ohio Wildlife Council is considering proposals that will affect Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch, crappies in 44 inland lakes, and Ohio River catfish according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife. A proposed change to the timing of when bag limits are set for Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch will be discussed. This proposal would make new bag limits effective on May 1 instead of March 1. Changing this effective date allows for the walleye and yellow perch quotas set by the Lake Erie Committee to be considered prior to setting the bag limits. The Lake Erie Committee comprises fishery managers from Michigan, New York, Ohio, Ontario and Pennsylvania. The committee’s work is

facilitated by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, a Canadian and U.S. agency on the Great Lakes. Each year the committee sets the total allowable catch for walleye and yellow perch from Lake Erie. Total allowable catch represents the number of fish that can be caught by sport and commercial fishers without putting the stocks at risk. From the total allowable catch for the lake, individual state quotas are calculated. Open houses will be held at the same day and time in Akron, Athens, Columbus, Findlay, Port Clinton and Xenia from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. Information recorded at these open houses is forwarded to the division’s central office in Columbus, where proposed rule changes to the Ohio Administrative Code are considered. For information, call 1-800-WILDLIFE (945-

3543) or visit wildohio.com. A statewide hearing on all the proposed rules will be held at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10, at the wildlife division’s District One Office, located at 1500 Dublin Road in Columbus. After considering public input, the Ohio Wildlife Council will vote on the proposed rules during its Oct. 7 meeting.

It’s almost time. Almost time, that is, for Yvonne and Charles (Chuck) Swartz, of Port Clinton, to head to Minot, N.D., to the largest Scandinavian festival in America, the Norsk Hostfest. In late September, the local couple will attend the celebration as special guests at the annual Sondre Nordheim Wreath-laying Ceremony where Chuck will present a wreath to lay on the grave of Nordheim, the father of modern-day skiing. Chuck was chosen for the honor because the famous skier was his great-great grandfather. As a child, Chuck had always known about the connection to his famous relative. But it wasn’t until they made a business trip to Minot in the mid-1990s and met with city officials that the search for more details began. Chuck saw a plaque on the wall with the name Sondre Nordheim, and he mentioned that it was his great-great-grandfather. In the discussion that followed, he was asked for a picture of Sondre because there was no official portrait there. “That day I became more aware of how famous he really was,” Chuck said. From that point on, Yvonne began the project of digging into the family ancestry and searching for information on the Internet. Norheim lived from 1825 to 1897 and played a critical role in changing skiing from a utility activity to a sport that could be enjoyed by many throughout the world. He changed the design of the ski equipment from a single birch or leather strap for each foot, to bindings that kept the foot secured at both the toe and heel thus allowing skiers to make turns instead of only going in a straight line. The turns led to slalom skiing, high-speed skiing and ski jumping. He was known for skiing off the rooftop of his father’s cottage and later became famous for the Telemark and Christiana turns. Nordheim has an eternal flame and statue in his honor located in Scandinavian Heritage Park in Minot as well as a flame and statue in Morgedal, Norway, where he was born. He is also the subject of a 1971 movie made about his life that was broadcast in Norway and later translated into English. “He was never in it for the fame,” Chuck said. “He just loved the sport.” During the ceremony in September, Chuck plans to say how honored he is to have someone in his family who has contributed so much to people all over the world and how honored he is to have this history to past down for generations to come. He will introduce members of his family who were also invited to the celebration: his mother Marlys Swartz, and siblings Toni Holmes, George, Richard and Paul Swartz, all from other states. Among other guests they will be meeting is H.E. Wegger Christian Strommen, Norway’s Ambassador to the United States. Does skiing run in the family? Although he skied as a child, ice skating was Chuck’s sport of choice.
