City auditor Steve Benko steps down Port Clinton's Auditor Steve Benko has announced his resignation effective Monday. "I have just been offered and have accepted a full-time employment opportunity with an out-of-state military defense contractor supporting the nation’s missile defense programs," Benko said in a letter sent to city officials Friday. Benko, who was appointed to fill the position left vacant after the retirement of Nancy O'Neal, has served about 18 months. City Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester said she will name an interim auditor next week to serve while members of the Republican Central Committee who live in the city meet to discuss a permanent replacement. "Those who want to throw their hat in the ring can contact me," Hymore-Tester said. The seven-member committee has 45 days to appoint a new city auditor. Hymore-Tester said the city's law director George Wilber is researching whether that replacement will have to run in the upcoming general election. The position is considered part-time and requires a minimum of eight hours per month. The term lasts four years and pays $40,000 annually. "I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to serve the residents of Port Clinton and wish all of you well in your future endeavors," said Benko.

Jim and Bob Snyder were the principal perch and french fry fryers Saturday at the Perch, Peach, Pierogi and Polka Festival hosted by the Port Clinton Knights of Columbus.

Construction starts at Magruder The Magruder Hospital Board of Trustees recently gave its approval for the hospital to move forward with the installation of a new generator system and the renovation of the hospital’s inpatient rooms to all private rooms. The new generator installation has already begun on the northwest corner of the hospital’s campus. When the project is complete, it will change the look of the hospital’s front area facing Fulton Street. “The generator installation will take us until early spring to complete. When we are done, the hospital will have 100 percent operating capacity during a power outage,” said Jack Smith, vice president of support services for Magruder. “The current generator system was only required, and designed, to support a limited amount of our needs during an outage. Since the emergency department drive is so frequently used by our patients and visitors, we wanted to make sure the area was tasteful, so the system will be enclosed using smoked glass and stone as a finishing.” Smith estimates the generator project will

In addition, Magruder started last week on a complete renovation of its 2-South wing where inpatient rooms are located. All of the current inpatient rooms are being converted to private themed rooms that will offer a serene environment for both patients and their families. “We have selected design themes such as outdoors, botanical, Cape Cod and Tuscan for color combina-

tions and design selections. The artwork and simulated hardwood floors give a more relaxed environment in which our patients can relax and rehabilitate,” said Smith. The four design concepts chosen for the private patient rooms will be carried throughout the entire 2-South wing. The total cost of the renovation is estimated at $810,000 and is scheduled to be complete by spring of 2010.

store in the United States. Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this eighth anniversary of one of our country’s worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, AND those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year round, but if you don’t; then at least make it a priority on this day. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you. God Bless You – God Bless America!!!” Yvonne Darling, Elmore

Beacon Bits By Virginia Park

I am writing in my living room on Saturday of a threeday weekend. On Monday it will be Labor Day, honoring working men and women, and celebrated since the 1880s in this country. While I was doing some research about the day, I happened to come across this quotation by Warren Beatty: “You have achieved success in your field when you don’t know whether what you are doing is work or play.” And I do also remember something written by Dr. Wayne Dyer. He said that for a career we should do what we love to do best. So, for example, if you love to drive a vehicle, maybe truck driving is the best kind of job for you. That really is a good motive to finding a career, isn’t it? Find what you love doing best and then do that — or something related to that — to make a living. ——— This week I had to go to Columbus for continuing education classes. On the way there, I saw the first autumn foliage in a few (very few) trees that had actually changed color. Other seasonal signs: soy beans that had turned gold, corn fields where the stalks had begun drying from the ground up and for maybe 2 feet were brown, goldenrod in bloom and those dark yellow flowers that look like tall daisies looming over the goldenrod. Fall is coming quickly now. Even the big pin oak tree in my front yard is showing some fall colors.

——— There are lots of wonderful things happening this coming weekend. Here are a few of them: • Rev. Tony Fadely will be preaching the sermon at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Chapel on The Lake. That’s at 145 S. Bridge Road (Ohio 269), Marblehead. Tony will be in Port Clinton to attend the Port Clinton High School Class of 1954 reunion. His home church is Trinity Methodist Church at Port Clinton and he went to College of Pacific in California for his bachelor’s degree in philosophy. He earned his master’s in theology from Drew University (in New Jersey) and his doctorate in ministry from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. He married Karis Stahl in 1957 at Trinity Methodist Church, Port Clinton. They both served as missionaries in Liberia, West Africa, where Karis died from surgery in 1978. In 1979, Tony married Vera Hauglett who was a missionary nurse in Liberia. They now live at Cocoa, Florida. The Fadelys were missionaries until 1982. He is now the senior pastor at Whole Loaf Worship Center in Cocoa. This is a Jewish-Christian congregation. The church supports a retreat center in Israel. The public is invited to the worship service this Sunday. For information, contact Pastor Brad Hall at 419-3411177 or Susan Keefer at 419-656-5503. • Another great thing to do this weekend is a medical benefit event for Bill Stubblefield. It’s being held Saturday, Sept. 12, to help defray his medical expenses. Bill recently had surgery for stage 4 melanoma and will undergo various therapies. The all-day takes place at Rack Attack, 221 Madison, Port Clinton, starting at noon. Prizes, dinner, a raffle and more are on the agenda. Diane Hepp gave me this information, saying Bill is a great guy who will help anybody. He is involved with many sports and youth activities and has befriended many area kids over the years. This event has something for everyone. There are an 8-ball pool tournament, a cornhole tournament and there will be a special benefit performance by Pumpin’ Ethyl. Grandma’s Backyard BBQ will be serving dinners for $7 (that’s the pre-sale price). Call Hepp at 419-734-1387 or Cynthia Rumbull at 419-573-9528 for information. • Then on Sept. 14, Premiere Events along with are sponsoring a golf outing at the Oak Harbor Golf Club. This will benefit the Ottawa County Humane Society. The shotgun start is at 1 p.m. and this will be an 18-hole golf scramble. Fees are $50 per golfer. Individuals or teams are welcome. Included for the $50 are greens fees, cart, drink coupons and a steak or chicken dinner. Ken Prine at 216-644-8275 or Roseann Hickman at 419308-4690 will supply information. • And of course Put-in-Bay hosts its historical weekend on Sept. 12-13 so no one should be bored next weekend. There is plenty to see and do in the Great Lake Erie Vacationland. There is even an open house at Stone Laboratory on Gibraltar Island. Tour the island and view Cooke Castle. Lectures, lab sessions, historical photos and more (including a tour of the South Bass Island Lighthouse) are slated to round out your day. Catch the boat for Gibraltar

Island from near downtown Putin-Bay. –—— Well, the kids are back in school and many students have already left for college. Some empty-nesters are feeling the pain. Others are rejoicing. One women told me that she couldn’t wait for her daughter to be gone. Their house was a total wreck while the daughter was getting packed up to leave, saying goodbye to friends, etc. ——— The Salvation Army offered a school supply assistance program in August called Tools for School. This program served 509 local students (up from last year’s 450) with school supplies, backpack and a haircut. This program was completely funded by donations. “Thank you to all who contributed funds and supplies to this program. We could not continue to help our children without your support,” said Maureen Saponari, director of the Ottawa County unit of the Salvation Army. ——— From Sept. 17-Nov. 29 the Toledo Museum of Art will host a wonderful exhibition of the glass artwork of Dale Chihuly. Chihuly is a great artist and his work is spectacular. Sketches and drawings that inspired the art will also be on display. The glass is “vibrant, alive with color, light, depth and perspective.” You have plenty of time to see it. Don’t miss this mind-boggling exhibit which features Chihuly’s glass work from the Toledo Museum’s collection as well as from many other sources. ——— Don’t forget the Ida Rupp Public Library Cinema Arts Series continues this fall on Fridays at 7 p.m. I mentioned “Ninotchka” is playing this Friday. Mark your calendar for next Friday, Sept. 18, when “Defiance” will be featured. Jewish brothers (Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber) in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe escape into the Belarusian forests where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavor to build a village in order to protect themselves and about 1,000 Jewish non-combatants. This R-rated picture received nominations for score and special effects. On Sept. 25, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” will be the featured movie. Brad Pitt stars as Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences. This PG-13 rated film received Oscars for art, makeup and visual effects. In all it received 24 awards and 69 international nominations, including Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for best motion picture and acting. “Doubt” will be featured on Oct. 2. In 1964, a nun (Meryl Streep) confronts a priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) after suspecting him of abusing a black student. He denies the charges, and much of the film’s quick-fire dialogue tackles themes of religion, morality and authority. The Rrated movie received four Oscar nominations for acting as well as 10 international awards. Admission to The Cinema Arts Series is free and sponsored by the Friends of the Ida Rupp Public Library.

trines within the church. As the ELCA and other denominations meet in such conventions, I am reminded of something that took place between Guenther Tharp and his mother several years ago. Helga Tharp was becoming totally frustrated with the mess that served as Guenther’s bedroom. The room was in constant disarray. She wondered aloud how Guenther could even get in and out of the room – much less sleep and play in it. Spanking, lectures, and grounding had no effect in altering his sloppy behavior. Then Helga heard about a rather ingenious plan which had worked for Mrs. Schultz down the street. Helga cleaned Guenther’s room herself and charged a fine for the items she had to pick up. Certainly, such a system of fines would have an impact on her messy son. At the end of the first week, Mrs. Tharp left a bill on Guenther’s dresser. He owed his mother $9.35. The next morning on the dresser where she had left her bill, Helga found the $9.35 – plus a 50 cent tip and a note which read, “Thanks, Mom, keep up the good work.” The experience obviously produced something other than the understanding Helga sought to implant in her son. Looking at Mrs. Tharp’s series of attempts to make Guenther more responsible in the upkeep of his room, she seems to have been following an insightful saying about education – “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I might remember. Involve me and I’ll understand.” In her last attempt, she hoped involving Guenther through the fines would increase his understanding of his responsibilities. She was on the right track — but understanding does not stand alone — understanding needs a context, a frame of reference to make the understanding relevant and useful. Whether we are talking about Guenther taking responsibility for his room; each individual person taking moral and ethical responsibility for his or her own life; nations setting their social, ethical, and moral agendas; or churches trying to remain faithful to their calling – there must be a recognized and accepted context. Life’s ultimate context for understanding is faith – the ultimate beliefs by which we live and the foundations we recognize upon which those beliefs are based.

AroundOttawaCounty Perry’s Victory to celebrate Historic Weekend With the blast of cannons, a Boy Scout Camp–O-Ree and the Toledo Symphony Historic Weekend comes again to Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12-13. The weekend-long historic celebration commemorates the 196th anniversary of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s victory over the British fleet at the Battle of Lake Erie. The festivities will include an authentic War of 1812 military encampment, historic demonstrations, an ice cream social and children’s crafts and activities. This year’s entertainment includes performances by the Toledo Symphony, Four Winds Barbershop Quartet, a Fife and Drum Duo and a segment from Ohio the Musical, “The Ballad of the Battle of Lake Erie” by Phoebe Borman. “For those with a love of history, this is an opportunity to enjoy the re-enactor’s stories, watch black powder demonstrations, hear the 32-pound carronade being fired and learn more about the War of 1812 that took place in Ohio’s backyard. For those who have yet to discover a love for history, this experience is sure to invoke one,” said Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Superintendent Blanca Alvarez Stransky. On Saturday afternoon at 2:15 p.m., the festivities begin with a Grand Parade through downtown Put-in-Bay. The parade will include antique cars, the United States Coast Guard Sea Cadets, 150 high school band members and 1,500 area Boy Scouts. The parade will conclude at the lower plaza of the memorial where the memorial service will be held. This year’s memorial service is dedicated to Rear Adm. Wayne E. Meyer (U.S. Navy retired). Meyer is known throughout the Navy as the “father of AGEIS.” Capt. Ronald Boxall Commanding Officer of the USS Lake Erie and Vice Adm. Ronald Route (U.S. Navy retired) will be the keynote speakers at this year’s ceremony. A special performance of the “Ballad of Lake Erie” by Phoebe Borman will open the ceremony at 3 p.m. Following the ceremony, there will be an ice cream social and Four Winds Barber-

Red Cross gets CPR manikins thanks to Stensen Grant The Ottawa County Red Cross was able to purchase new, up-to-date manikins thanks to a grant from the Harry Stensen Memorial Fund. In a continuing effort to make Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automatic External Defibrillator training a more realistic experience for participants, the American National Red Cross has updated its list of approved training equipment which includes manikins. The old inventory of training manikins in Ottawa County was more than 10 years old and considered obsolete by new standards. Because of the grant funds, new Actar Defib Manikins have been purchased for local training. The Actar Defib manikins are the most cost effective replacement manikins and have the following features: jaw thrust, head tilt and closeable airway along with landmarks that represent the Adam’s apple, carotid groove, lower rib, nipples and navel. With one manikin for each participant, there is more practice time which maximizes participants’ psychomotor skills, reduces the risk of cross-contamination and maximizes class time efficiency. The local Red Cross staff of volunteer instructors certify an average of 2,000 residents each year in lifesaving skills for employment requirements and also personal use.

Juvenile diabetes walk coming up at East Harbor MARBLEHEAD — More than 500 walkers, representing Erie, Ottawa, Huron and Sandusky counties, will be at East Harbor State Park at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21. Local civic groups, families affected by diabetes and friends will band together to raise money for a cure for diabetes. The goal of this year’s walk is to raise $25,000. This sixth annual family-fun event, complete with a balloon-making clown, mascots, crafts, vendors, live entertainment, live remote from BAS Broadcasting and a picnic lunch, takes place on the shores of Lake Erie for it’s sixth year. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. with lunch provided by Bassett’s Market and served by P.C. Kiwanis. The official 3-mile walk will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony. East Harbor State Park south beach offers an ideal location and beautiful view of the lake. The walk chairwoman is Mary Brown, of Port Clinton. Her son Ryan has had diabetes since he was 6 years old. Although he is 19 now, she continues to lead a team of parents who can reach out to the newest of families diagnosed with diabetes, most recently a child at age 2 ½. “Life with diabetes is not an easy. Insulin is not a cure. When the child is very young it is very emotional for these families to care for the child,” said Mary.  “The countless finger pokes and insulin injections, which obviously hurt the child is all for their health. Just try to reason with a 2 or 3 year old,” Brown said. “These children and young adults deserve a cure. We are within reach of a cure, which is why

we work together with JDRF. We parents, who are veterans with diabetes offer hope to the new families. They can see our kids are doing well with diabetes and JDRF continues to fund key diabetes research projects to cure diabetes.” Last year, in more than 200 cities, JDRF walks were held and more than $94 million dollars was raised. JDRF is the world’s largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes research. Leading research support both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes providing kids the best hope for a cure. Type 1 diabetes most often strikes in childhood and lasts a lifetime. It requires multiple daily injections of insulin, or continuous infusion of insulin through a pump. Insulin is not a cure, but life-sustaining treatment.  Despite controlling diabetes with insulin, it still carries the threat of devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke and amputation.  Silver-level sponsors for the local walk include: BAS Broadcasting, Bassett’s Market, DJ Dave, Friendship Food Stores/ Beck Oil, J and R Silk Screening, Magruder Hospital and Meyers Rental. Monies can be raised in various ways. Most people attending the walk have made their own donation to JDRF, and

Upcoming Open Houses

Port Clinton Women’s Club

Tour the homes of Perry Street Sept. 13 The Port Clinton Women’s Club and P.E.O. will be hosting the fourth annual Tour of Homes from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13, on Perry Street. The proceeds from the event will go to benefit Port Clinton Women’s Club, PEO Scholarship Fund and Joyful Connections. Joyful Connections establishes a location where parents can handle visitation exchanges in a safe, neutral environment. The following will open their homes for the tour: • Bo and Julie Loeffler — 802 E. Perry St. This home was built in the early 1950s and is the only home on Perry Street to have a clear view to the downtown areas as it jets out beyond all others west of it. The home was originally owned by the Draka family. “Great Grandpa Draka” built the kitchen cabinets and they still exist today despite the current updates and renovations to the home. The Loefflers have added upgrades to the living area on the main floor that includes crown molding, new windows and upgrades to the fireplace and mantle. The home includes southern plantation-style blinds throughout. Come and enjoy the traditional modern décor with a “Pottery Barn” theme throughout. • Curtis and Elaine Moody —726 E. Perry St. This Victorian-style home was purchased by the Moody’s about six years ago and they have redesigned and remodeled both the interior and the exterior of the home since that time. The front of the home has had landscaping changes and there have been larger windows placed in the front room to enjoy the wonderful beauty of Lake Erie. The downstairs has been completely changed in order to take in the views. Where there were originally walls and rooms, it is now open. With all the changes, Curtis and Elaine have also been able to keep some of the original fixtures and woodwork of the home. It’s amazing to see the classic mixed with the new and how well they collaborate together in this home. • Cindy Bolte — 520 E. Perry St. This home was originally built in the 1800s by the True family. Over the years, Cindy’s home has seen several owners as well as

the Civil War, the rerouting of the Portage River and two World Wars. In Spring of 2006 the original home was considered by many to be one of the oldest homes in Ottawa County. Unfortunately, because of its age it had become unsafe and beyond reasonable repair. The home was demolished and reconstructed. There are many design elements that were saved from the first home and several custom features such as built-in bunk beds, a window seat in the master bedroom that doubles as a dog kennel for Cindy’s dogs and custom molding throughout. Come take a closer look at this beautiful home. • Darrell and Connie Brand — 516 E. Perry St. This ranch style home was built by Otto and Stensen in the 1950s. The original owners were inspired by a home in one of the Dutch Caribbean Islands. The current home replaced a brick home that burned down. The Brands’ home was built with the master bedroom and den windows facing south with little emphasis on the view of the lake. The Brand’s currently use the front bedroom as a master bedroom in order to enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Erie. • Dr. Peter and Anita vanden Berg — 510 E. Perry St. The contemporary style home of the vanden Berg’s was built in 1968 for Dr. James and Priscilla Rheil and purchased by the vanden Bergs in 2004. This home has a beautiful open floor design with living space on the second floor and bedrooms on the first floor in order to take full advantage of the wonderful views Lake Erie has to offer. The vanden Berg home underwent a major renovation in 2009 to the upper floor with new cabinets and counters in the kitchen. The carpet on the stairs has been replaced with wood steps and tile risers. Upon entering you will notice a variety of tiles. Each design represents Dr. vanden Berg’s Dutch Heritage. Come and enjoy the wonderful stories told through the tiles. Tickets can be purchased in advance from any Women’s Club member, Bassett’s IGA or Mary’s Blossom Shoppe for $13. Tickets will also be available at the Loeffler and vanden Berg home for $15 the day of the tour.

Exercise program created for those with memory loss The Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, has joined with the Ohio Department of Aging and the Benjamin Rose Institute to implement a free program that will help both individuals with memory problems as well as family members who are caring for them. This new program is called Reducing Disability in Alzheimer’s Disease. The RDAD program is designed to help teach older adults who may suffer from memory problems how to do some simple exercises to improve their overall health. The program also teaches family members about symptoms to watch for and how to care for persons with memory problems. This program’s goal is to improve the ability of the person with memory problems to carry out activities of daily living while also helping fam-

ily members provide assistance to their relative. A specially trained professional will come to the home for 15 sessions, each session lasting about one hour to teach exercises to the person with memory problems to help improve strength and balance and trained professionals will also teach family members how to assist their relative with these exercises. Family members will also be asked to keep a record of their relatives’ exercise progress and to complete three brief surveys about the sessions that will be mailed back to the Benjamin Rose Institute.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 3 to 6 and 8 to 14. In 2007, 6,532 passenger vehicle occupants 14 and younger were involved in fatal crashes. That’s why Firelands Area Safe Kids Coalition is urging all parents and caregivers to attend Car Seat Check on Sept. 19. As part of Child Passenger Safety Week, the coalition will have certified technicians available to provide on-site child safety seat inspections and education 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Trish McCartney’s State Farm Agency located at 140 Buckeye Blvd. in Port Clinton. “It’s the responsibility of every parent and caregiver out there to make sure their children are safely restrained — every trip, every time,” said Ann Lewis, coordinator. “We are urging everyone to get their child safety seats inspected. When it comes to the safety of a child, there is no room for mistakes.” In 2007, among children under 5, an estimated 358 lives were saved from the use of child safety seats and booster seats. If all children under the age of 5 were restrained,

an additional 71 children would have been saved. Ohio has passed a new booster seat law which requires all children up to 4’9” or 8-years-old be in a booster seat. A drawing will be held at the Sept. 19 event for five booster seats which have been donated by the Port Clinton Kiwanis. The children winning the booster seats must have been present at the car seat check. In addition to the Port Clinton event, other area car seat checks will be held on Sept. 16 at the Perkins Plaza on Milan Road in Sandusky and Sept. 26 at the Huron County Health Department on 28 E. Main St. in Norwalk. Both events are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Easter Seals holds a fitting station at Magruder Hospital from 3 to 5 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. If you need your seat checked or wish to find out if you are eligible for a seat through the Ohio Buckles Buckeyes Program, call 419-332-3016. For information about the car seat checks or the Safe Kids Coalition, call Easter Seals at 1-800-696-5601.

It’s one thing when your football team starts the season with two consecutive wins. But the way the Port Clinton Redskins have done it this season almost defies description. The ‘Skins have promptly defeated Woodmore and Gibsonburg in non-league contests with last-minute heroics that would have made Alfred Hitchcock swoon. It wasn’t that either game was frightening — it’s the notion that both games ended with dramatic finishes. In both cases, the winner was Port Clinton, although a full moon during Friday’s 35-33 win over Gibsonburg may have added to the drama’s special effects. Port Clinton coach Toby Hammond says it has “probably been quite a while” since the Redskin football team last started the season 2-0. In the opening week of the season, PC scored two late touchdowns to come from behind and defeat the host Woodmore Wildcats, 34-26. To finalize win No. 2, the Redskins had to stave off a two-point conversion attempt with 1:18 remaining by the Gibsonburg Golden Bears that could have tied the game and sent it into overtime. Then, the Redskins had to successfully recover an on side kick. Gibsonburg running back Avery Potridge scored from 3 yards out in the waning minutes, but an attempt to add two more points via a conversion run fell short. Coach Hammond said his Redskins were fully aware and prepared for the impending onside kick, and when the ‘Skins made the recovery another victory ensued for his squad.

Visiting North Baltimore scored nine touchdowns Friday night to defeat the Danbury Lakers, 64-0. Danbury fell to 0-2, while NB improved to 2-0. “They’re good. They’ve got a real good freshman running back,” Danbury first-year coach Tim Heffernan said of the Tigers. “You know, I think the score there was not real indicative of what went on. “We actually rushed for over 100 yards, so I was pleased with that,” Heffernan continued. “Hunter Stevens is a kid who stepped in at fullback and did a phenomenal job for us. As a matter of fact, he will probably start at fullback this week (at Fostoria St. Wendelin) for us.” For the Tigers, Dalton Ishmael ran for 99 yards on only three carries and one touchdown (92 yards), and team-

completed 13-of-21 passes for 189 yards, including two 39-yarders — one to Allen Tigner and the other to Eric Reynolds. Tigner caught seven passes for 107 yards, Reynolds caught three for 49 yards, and Graves caught three for 33 yards. Harris scored the first touchdown of the game 3 minutes into the game, but the Golden Bears came back on a 1-yard run by Brett Diekman. Then, Harris got his second touchdown run to put PC up 14-7 with 2 minutes remaining in the first quarter. Harris and Gibsonburg quarterback Neil Black each ran for a second quarter touchdowns, and PC held a 21-14 edge headed into the halftime locker room. Harris’ third TD run at the end


mate Michael South had 88 yards on six carries and two touchdowns (15 and 50 yards). Quarterback Clinton Ebright completed 5-of-7 passes for 164 yards. The Tigers went for two points on four touchdowns, and were successful all four times. When attempting a one-point conversion kick, the Tigers were successful 2-of-5 times. The Tiger defense scored twice, including once on a 34-yard fumble return by Chris Casey. Treg Rensch also returned an interception 53 yards for a Tiger touchdown. Casey also caught a 32-yard touchdown pass from Ebright. The Danbury Lakers will be looking for their first win this Saturday night when they play St. Wendelin on the field turf at Fostoria High School’s stadium. St. Wendelin, coached by former Genoa and Cardinal Stritch coach Bill Hrabak, was a 59-14 loser to Lima Perry Friday night. Heffernan believes the turf at Fostoria will help his team. “That’s a good thing - for the little bit of speed that we have,” Coach Heffernan said. Heffernan and Hrabak have al-

ready met, and Hrabak has quite a history against Danbury. One of his Stritch teams won a Toledo Area Athletic Conference championship and reached the Division VI playoffs. Hrabak is considered one of the pioneers to getting football sanctioned as a sport in the TAAC. He started campaigning for TAAC football once Toledo Christian began its varsity gridiron program and before Northwood became a member of the conference. In addition, Heffernan said in his recent conversation with Hrabak, he found out that St. Wendelin is facing many of the same rebuilding issues Danbury is. “They are dealing with the ‘numbers’ issues and they are also dealing with the injury issues the same as we are,” Heffernan said. “That’s a bad combination to have. That’s a snake bite all around.” Heffernan will be dealing with his own issues before the Lakers take on the Mohawks Saturday night. “We’ve sustained quite a few injuries,” Heffernan, a former player at Cleveland St. Ignatius, said. “The positive thing is a lot of our guys are stepping into leadership roles, which is real important for us, especially down the line. This being a rebuilding situation, you can’t HOMES THAT NEED ROOFING ask for anything more than game A select number of homeowners in Port Clinton and the time for your surrounding areas will be given the opportunity to have younger guys - so a lifetime Erie Metal Roofing System installed on their that’s a positive, home at a reasonable cost. for sure.” Call today to see if you qualify.

ard Harris helped the Redskins get to where they are at, by scoring four rushing touchdowns Friday night and intercepting a pass in the fourth quarter, which he returned 30 yards for a fifth touchdown. He also ran for a two-point conversion in the third quarter, which proved to the difference in the ballgame. “He was our leading rusher last year, but I think the big key to Richard is that our offensive line was just so much better on the line of scrimmage,” Coach Hammond said. “We were able to run the ball. Richard had the hot hand Friday night and we were able to run the ball a lot.” Harris scored on runs of 24, 2, 22 and 29 yards. The Redskin running back ran for 171 yards on 24 carries.

GENOA 52 —OAK HARBOR 0 by j. patrick eaken

There was a feeling at Oak Harbor that after opening the season with a two touchdown win over Springfield, the Rockets would be ready to take on Genoa. But the Genoa Comets, defending Division IV state semifinalists, were not going to allow the Rockets any chance to get two consecutive wins in the opening two weeks of the season. In the Route 163 rivalry contest for the Celestial Bowl trophy, the Comets rolled all over the Rockets in a 51-0 rout that left little doubt how good Genoa was going to be this season. Genoa was ahead 45-0 at halftime and only after scoring two third quarter touchdowns did the Comets pull up on the accelerator. Still, Coach Mike Vicars Comets were able to preserve the shutout. The Comets had 390 total net yards to the Rockets’ 55, and Genoa had 19 first downs to Genoa’s six. The good sign for Oak Harbor was no turnovers, plus the Rockets did have success moving the football under sophomore quarterback Brian Mallernee. Mallernee was starting for the injured senior quarterback, Steve Young, who is expected to return within the coming weeks. Linebacker Matt Mallernee, Brian’s older brother, also sat out because of an injury.
 Brian Mallernee showed some precision in his passing game, which may foretell good news of things to come at Oak Harbor. He completed 6-of-10 passes (60 percent) for 45 yards, including 10-yard completions to D.J. Everett and Zack Priesman. Priesman caught three passes for 22 yards, and Everett, Jake Scott (8 yards) and Brad Perry (5 yards) each caught one pass. The Rockets had difficulty running the

Matt Klippstein ran for 20 yards on 10 attempts, Jake Scott had 11 yards on five attempts, Jordan Cannet had 7 yards on 5 yards, and Priesman had 4 yards on one carry. But the young Mallernee ended the evening with negative 32 yards on 13 carries, mostly because of sacks by the Comet defense. Mallernee did have the longest Oak Harbor carry of the evening, good for 12 yards. For Genoa, 11 running backs ran for 287 yards on 35 carries. Greg Hillabrand led the Comets with 115 yards on seven carries along with three touchdowns. Hillabrand scored on runs of 14, 2, and 55; Chris Cuevas scored on a 10-yard run; Seth Dufendock scored from 9 yards out; and Connor Wendt scored from 30 yards out. Genoa quarterback Matt Bassitt completed 7-of-11 passes for 103 yards and one touchdown - a 21-yard completion to Derek Allgier. Bassitt also completed a twopoint conversion to Greg Hillabrand, and Tyler Pickard added three conversion kicks for the Comets. Genoa also scored four points on two safeties by the defense. Things do not get an easier for the Rockets this week as they travel to Eastwood (2-0). Eastwood defeated Rossford on the road Friday night, 72-0, and the Eagles opened with a 32-21 win over Clyde.

of the half, and Black scored from 5 yards out 2 minutes into the second quarter. In the third quarter, Harris got his final touchdown run with 4 minutes remaining, but the Golden Bears had stayed on pace with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Black to Diekman with 6 minutes to go. The Bears missed a conversion attempt, but PC was successful on a twopoint conversion run by Harris. PC’s only fourth quarter score was Harris’ interception return with 8 minutes left, while Gibsonburg scored twice. Potridge ran the first Golden Bear TD in from 16 yards 1 minute into the fourth quarter, then his second score came after the interception return, setting up the last minute heroics by PC. PC had 18 first downs to Gibsonburg’s 26, and the Golden Bears had 396 total net yards to the Redskins’ 353. Gibsonburg had 279 yards rushing and 121 in the air, while PC had 173 yards rushing and 189 through the air. Neither team lost any fumbles, and the only intercep-


tion of the game was the one Harris returned for a score. Gibsonburg, which opened the season with a double-digit victory over Ottawa Hills, fell to 1-1 on the season. Now, PC will take on a task of another magnitude - hosting the defending Division IV state semifinalist Genoa Comets (2-0), who opened the season by defeating Rossford, 61-0, and last week defeated Oak Harbor, 51-0. “They are better than they were last year,” Hammond said about the Comets, knowing Genoa has returned several skilled position players from last season’s 13-1 team. “Plus, they (Genoa) are throwing the ball a lot better than in the past,” Hammond said, referring to the passing of Comet quarterback Matt Bassitt. Hammond says that if the Redskins can upset the Comets, that might be good enough for him “to retire.” He was joking, but said his team was taking Genoa very seriously and spending the week watching the Comets and Rockets game on film.

“Positive coaching” — it’s hard to define, but you know it when you see it. The coach is supportive and encouraging. The program is player-centered and not coach-centered. Winning is important, but so are lessons like sportsmanship, teamwork and perseverance. The coach notices and verbally rewards the skills and behaviors they want to instill. Players are treated with respect, but the coach is definitely in charge. Unfortunately, when winning seems to be the only thing that’s important, we are seeing an increasing amount of negative behavior from adults. Some display actions that border on abusive as they work with kids. I guess many believe the louder they yell, the better the athletes will play and the more they will win. That just doesn’t happen. Kids can be immobilized with fear and grow tentative. Teenagers may be totally embarrassed and lose concentration. Cheering is positive and can improve the energy level. Yelling, which is “at” someone, causes anger and serves as a distraction. Performance suffers and motivation fails. There is a long history of drill sergeant type coaches who drive their teams hard and punish mistakes aggressively. Coaches in the “old” days had full authority and people expected them to be tough. One of the stated reasons to have sports in schools was to prepare young men for military service. (I’m not kidding.) That model of coaching has faded for a couple reasons. One is that the public no longer supports physical or verbal attacks on children. Laws have changed and so have opinions as to what is acceptable as appropriate discipline. The other reason is that positive coaching works better. Praise is a more effective motivator than punishment. I know a lot of people won’t agree with that statement, but countless studies in educational and business settings bear it out. As adults, we are happier and work harder if we know what we do well is appreciated. If the only things we ever receive are criticisms and punishments, performance and morale suffer in the long run. Kids react the same way. Remember to build fun into practices. How can you coach in a positive way? Focus on it! It’s easier to see only what’s wrong because it stands out. Train yourself to look for what’s right. Notice how things are done, not just if they are successful. Pick out part of a skill that is good and stress that. If your team loses, build on whatever went well. Notice effort or staying in position, for example. If something needs to be changed, use positive language. Try to correct the problem. It’s not enough to point out something was wrong. Telling someone to stop or quit doing something doesn’t help. The player needs to be told or shown what to do differently. If kids know you care about them, they will be more willing to do what you ask of them. Another guideline is that praise must be earned. Undeserved compliments don’t mean much. Sometimes it’s tough to find something good. Keep looking. Younger kids need lots of praise. Teens need sincere praise. Of course, coaches need to make corrections and get players to make changes. Being a positive coach doesn’t mean you never get upset or yell, but it doesn’t happen often. How coaches handle mistakes has a huge bearing on how athletes develop. Mistakes happen and they are learning opportunities. Teach what to do the next time the same scenario occurs. Let the kids know it’s OK to make an error. Expect them to work to get better. Help them learn to put the mistake behind them and bring their focus to the next try. Emphasizing the mistake can cause fear; correcting it can bring confidence. I once asked second-grade students what a coach does. One answer was, “They wear a whistle and yell a lot.” Another was, “They help you get better.” Which coach would you like to play for?

National Bank of Oak Harbor celebrates 75th anniversary OAK HARBOR — In August, the National Bank of Oak Harbor celebrated its 75th anniversary in style by hosting a red carpet event for shareholders and guests. The banks Oak Harbor office was transformed inside and out to create an unforgettable evening. As guests entered the red carpet, they were greeted by Gary P. Macko, president and CEO, and Charles E. Hablitzel, chairman of the board of directors. They were then encouraged to continue their walk down the red carpet through memory lane, where they could reminisce by viewing window boxes featuring bank history. The final stop along memory lane was an area for viewing a special video created to highlight the bank’s 75-year history. Two large white tents were set up just outside the bank building and filled with white linen-clothed tables, a dance floor and life-sized cardboard characters from the 1930s, such as Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh and Betty Boop. The crowd was entertained by 12-piece big band Dana Dorsey and The Blue Notes playing the most popular jazz and pop music from the 1920s and beyond. That evening, Chairman Charles Hablitzel took front stage to welcome guests and introduce members of the board, including Jim Dunn, Dr. Den-

nis Laub, Tom Spangler, John Caputo, Dean Davis and Gary P. Macko. He then thanked Marie Truman, board secretary and event coordinator for her efforts in creating such a wonderful evening for shareholders and guests. The most exciting moment of the night was when the crowd erupted into cheers after Hablitzel announced a three for two stock split for all Indebancorp shareholders of record July 31. As guests exited the party, each received a special 75th anniversary gift, a DVD copy of the video and a commemorative program highlighting

the banks’ history. “The committee set out to create a memorable evening for our shareholders,” said Marie Truman, event coordinator. “I am just thrilled with how well our plans came together to create an unforgettable event!” Indebancorp is the holding company for The National Bank of Oak Harbor. Established in 1934, The National Bank of Oak Harbor is an independent, community bank with four full-service locations in Oak Harbor, Curtice, Port Clinton and Oregon, as well as one mortgage loan office in Fremont.
