‘Chamber of Commerce Day’ For 14th Billman Golf Outing In tourist towns, when they speak of a Chamber of Commerce day, they are referring to one with absolutely perfect weather. It was truly a “Chamber of Commerce Day,” on Wednesday, Sept. 15, for the Huron Chamber’s 14th annual Don Billman Memorial Golf Classic. The outing, held this year at Sawmill Creek Golf Club, is a tribute to Billman who served as the group’s treasurer for nearly two decades prior to his death in 1996. While no one was able to sink a hole-in-one on Hole #7 and earn a Hyundai Sonata from Route 250 Hyundai, the teams had great fun attempting to “Beat The Preachers.” The Revs.Tom Halzaepfel of Lighthouse Assembly Church and Wanda Ray of Christ Episcopal Church, took them on to see who could shoot the longest drive on Hole #13. A Mail Box game, run by Jerry Bogner of The UPS Store in Sandusky, gave golfers a chance to pick the right key that would open one on a wall of mailboxes, revealing $50. The Haggerty team, composed of Bill and Billy Haggerty, Shawn Bahnsen and Josiah Sanchez, captured first place with a 15 under par, 56. The well-known Bodde brothers, Bill, Dave, Tom and Bob, came in second with 58. Taking third place honors was the team composed of Eric Muehlhauser, Kevin Asher, Paul Berlin and Joe Nageotte who shot 62. Proximity winners included: Jeremy Pfahl, long putt on Hole #4; Joe Blodgett, closest to the pin on #5; Erie Muehlhauser, closest to the hole with the second shot on #9; Shawn Bahnsen, captured two best shot awards with closest to the hole on the third shot at #12 and closest to the pin on #13. Chih Lee also doubled up, with the longest drive on #15 and closest to the pin on #17. Tony Frank made the longest putt on #16. This Chamber fundraiser would not be possible without the sup-

Around Town Master Gardener Hold Meeting Tonight Huron County Master Gardeners will meet Sept. 23 at St. Alphonsus on Settlement Road, just off Ohio 61 South. Committees may meet at 6 p.m., with refreshments and socializing at 6:30 p.m. A business meeting (with much information to cover) will begin promptly at 7 p.m., followed by the education presentation “Fall Clean-Up in the Garden” by Charlene Margetiak.

Cub Scouts Hold Popcorn Fund-raiser Local Cub Scout Pack 31 will kick off their annual popcorn fund-raiser on Saturday, Sept. 25 with a “Neighborhood Blitz.” Cub Scouts will be going to Huron neighborhoods to sell Camp Masters popcorn. This is the Cub Scout’s major fund-raiser that provides funding for camping, pinewood derby, overnights at the zoo, summer camp, den activities, recognition awards, and other activities. Camp Masters returns 70 percent of the cost to scouting, with 30 percent to the Cub Scout pack. There is a wide selection of popcorn available, including popping corn kernels, microwave popcorn and tins of popcorn. Several new

items this year include chocolatey carmel corn, sweet and salty kettle corn microwave popcorn, and Ohio State University tins filled with white cheddar, yellow cheddar and zesty cheesy salsa popcorn. For those who do not wish to purchase popcorn for themselves, the scouts are offering a military donation option that sends popcorn to the troops. The boys will be out in the neighborhoods from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Popcorn can also be purchase by contacting any cub scout or by emailing Pack31popcorn@bex. net by Oct. 22.

Enderle Family to Host Jeff Krabill Fund-raiser Jeff Krabill and supporters will enjoy a night of BBQ, fellowship, and camaraderie as supporters work to send him to the Ohio House of Representatives. “Boots and BBQ” will feature a BBQ meal with guests wearing either casual or country western attire. The event is open to the public and will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Enderle farm, 756 River Road, Huron. A campaign gaining momentum, supporters believe Krabill has the integrity it takes to represent the 80th District to

the state legislature. The 80th District includes all of Erie County and most of Ottawa. Jeff Krabill began his campaign more than 20 months ago and has been knocking on doors and raising money to defeat the incumbent, Dennis Murray. As a challenger for the seat Krabill said he will maintain his strong work ethic by running a grassroots style campaign. For more information, call campaign manager Justin Barnhart at 419-231-1111.

Audubon Society Hosts Picnic

Woodlands Garden Clean-Up a Success

On Tuesday, Sept. 28, Firelands Audubon Society “Welcome Back Potluck Picnic” followed by Ed Boose’s presentation “Osborn Park from the Beginning.” The event will be held at 6 p.m. at Osborn Park, Shelter No. 3. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share and their own table settings. Osborn Park can be accessed from Cleveland Road because of a bridge repair on Perkins Avenue. Contact Mary at 419625-7136 or for more details.

Drought Causes Preview of Ohio’s Fall Color

Thank you goes to the many volunteers who gave a few hours of their Saturday morning to help weed and clean up the gardens at Woodlands Intermediate School. The volunteers were Jean and Riley Mullen, Neva, Tom, and Nick Tonich, Bob and Sandy Schuh, Tim Wallick, Brad, Hannah, and Gretchen Blackwell, Lisa Yako and Megan Rehm. A special thank you also goes to Barnes Nursery for providing a pickup truck to transfer all of the compost materials to the Barnes compost facility. The public is invited to come to the garden and see the many plants, birds, insects, and other animals that call the Woodlands Gardens home. Another community work day will be planned soon.

Pictured at Right: Nick Tonich holds a toad that COLUMBUS – The relatively dry summer has created he found at the Woodlands Children’s Garden the opportunity for a great fall foliage season, which could Saturday. peak during mid-October in northern Ohio and late October in southern parts of the state. To help Ohioans plan seasonal outings and enjoy the fall color that will radiate through Ohio’s 100-plus tree species, ODNR will post weekly fall color updates at http:// The reports will begin Sept. 22 and run through the first week on November. The drought and heat through part of July and all of August does seem to have some trees a little stressed out causing them to show hints of color in mid- to late-September. This will be noticed most in urban areas, where trees live a tougher life, and in lower lying areas where the trees are used to having access to more water. Hopefully, the state will get rain again in September and the temperatures will continue cooling off in the evenings. If the weather in September cooperates, the state should be on track for northern Ohio peaking in the first and second week of October, central Ohio peaking around second and third weeks, and then southern Ohio peaking through the fourth week. Sunny days with cool nights, minus an early frost, will make for a stunning fall foliage season. Consistent rainfall will also help October color to peak at its best. Poison Ivy, Virginia Creeper, and Buckeyes are expected to start the color display at the end of September with bright reds and golds, respectively.

Sports Tennis Lady Tigers Enjoying Success

Tigers Shut Down Chargers, 35 - 0

Lady Tigers are 5-2 in SBC play Coach Jeff Skaggs and his young team won another SBC match this past week – this time against a struggling Edison Charger squad who are looking for their first conference win of the season. Here are the individual results of the match: Edison Match 4 - 1 Win: Sammie Jamison defeated Erin Black (H) 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4;

Lynsie Schwerer (H) defeated Karyn Schmidt 6-4, 6-2; Brittany Mayer (H) defeated Rachel Wallace 6-0, 6-0; Caroline Stierhoff/Catlyn Foley (H) defeated Mallory Kiley/Daneill Rasey 6-4, 6-2; Emily Waldrop/Holly Richardson (H) defeated Amy Salmons/Morgan Schaeffer 6-3, 6-2.

Lady Tigers Now 6-4 on the Season Coach Jeff Skaggs and his young team took another SBC match this week, this time against the Rockets of Oak Harbor. This win gives his team a 4-1 record within the conference. The sole loss came in a non-conference showdown with Bellevue. Here are the individual results of each match: Oak Harbor match, 3-2 win: Ashley LaFountain defeated Erin Black (H) 6-0, 6-0; Julia Konieczny defeated Lynsie Schwerer (H) 6-1, 6-0; Brittany Mayer (H) defeated Katie Mehlow 6-2, 6-2; Caroline Stierhoff/Catlyn Foley (H) defeated Logan Bahnsen/Hanna

Birchall 6-2, 7-5; Emily Waldrop/Holly Richardson (H) defeated Jessica Hymore/Brittlyn Grodi 6-1, 6-3. Bellevue match, 4-1 loss: Ophelia Whitmore defeated Carolyn Stierhoff (H) 6-3, 6-0; Emily Wellingford defeated Caitlin Foley (H) 6-4, 6-2; Catherine Wilson defeated Holly Richardson (H) 6-0, 6-3; Erin Black/Brittany Mayer (H) defeated Brianna Wolfe/Alivia Ball 6-2, 6-4; Tonya Posey/Jessica Brown defeated Lynsie Schwerer/Emily Waldrop (H) 6-1, 6-0.

Tough Week for Varsity Volleyball Team Certainly Coach Wood must hope that this past week was an educational one for the Lady Tigers on the varsity volleyball team. On Thursday night, the then-unbeaten Huron squad spotted Margaretta a 2-0 lead (25-22, 2523) before finding their groove in the match. The Tigers rallied to win the next two games 25-18 and 25-21. But in the short 15-point game fives, anything can happen. And anything did, with pesky Polar Bears providing Huron their first conference loss in over a year, 15-9. The Margaretta fans stormed the floor as if they had won the regional finals for the first time leaving the Lady Tigers standing there, waiting to congratulate them on their win. On Saturday evening the Tigers hosted the three time Division IV defending state champion Marion Local along with their stellar athlete, No. 8, Alyssa Winner. The Flyers came in sporting a record of 7-0 so far in 2010. And for this special occasion, the announcer, Mac Lehrer, introduced Huron as the Division III defending state champions. (Normally, the Tigers are announced as the defending SBC champs.) While the Marion’s Winner is gifted, they are by no means a one-woman show. The visitors played a very disciplined match throughout the evening. Often times, when two really good teams meet, both teams make scoring runs against each other, back and forth. The match develops a rhythm like a close NCAA basketball game. But not with Marion. They allowed no sustained runs that would put the Tigers back into a game. Once Huron fell behind, the home team had to grind to

get back into it. Huron started fast in game one by taking a 4-1 lead. But Marion battled back to tie it at six apiece. Then the scoring went back and forth until the Flyers took a 13-9 lead. Coach Wood did an excellent job calling timeouts to try and break Marion’s momentum. The Tigers went on a 5-2 run, led by two Kaitlyn Sommer aces, to pull within one point, 14-15. But again the Flyers began to pull away, forcing Wood to again call time at 14-18. An Erin O’Reilly, then a Kat Ferrell kill combined with a Huron block forced the visitors to call time at 18-20. But the Flyers closed out the first game with a 5-2 run for a 25-20 victory. The Tigers hurt themselves with several serving errors either went into the net or were long that proved costly. The crowd who witnessed the final two games in Marion’s defeat of Huron saw some long, amazing points with quick, athletic saves by both squads. The type one only sees when teams of this caliber face off. No Tiger attacker had double digits in kills because the Flyer blockers were so effective. (Senior Taylor Slauterbeck led the team with eight kills and nine digs.) Marion did an outstanding job exploiting holes in the home team’s defense if a Tiger was slow to get to the right spot. Whereas, the Flyers rarely seemed to be out of position. The Tigers went long on many spike attempts that proved costly. In the end, Marion prevailed 3-0 (2520; 25-16; 25-18). The road for Huron gets no easier as they travel to Edison, on Thursday, for a rematch of the five set season opener won by the Tigers.

With only four home games this season, Huron has to make the most of each and every one. This Friday night was Band Parents night, as well as an opportunity to show off the town’s newest and cutest mini-cheerleaders! This proud town also welcomed home Joseph Enderle from yet another tour of Iraq with the Air Force Reserve. A 1985 graduate of Huron High, Joe not only played football for the Tigers, but has spent several years coaching within the system as well. His son, Drew, a junior center on the team, led the Tigers out on the field waving a United States flag that had flown over Iraq during Enderle’s recent tour of duty.

The home team, including Coach Legando, seemed particularly fired up for the opening of the game. Last week’s dismal showing against Norwalk St. Paul (a 43-25 defeat) was a tough pill to swallow. On this night, the Tiger offensive line seemed to do a better job protecting QB Brian Bollenbacher. He was very efficient throwing downfield, going 12 for 15 for 271 yards and two touchdown passes. Both primary receivers – Jake Hillman and Sean Fantozz – had big nights. Both broke the 100-yard barrier with Hillman gaining 104 yards (plus two touchdown grabs), while Fantozz contributed big with seven receptions for 150 yards. The Tigers opened the scoring by taking advantage of a Charger fumbled hand-off on their own 47-yard line with 7:09 left in the first quarter. Aided by a pass interference call, a nice run by the quarterback, and a reception by Fantozz, Huron ended up one foot away from the end zone. From there, Brian Bollenbacher followed his center in for the touchdown for a 7-0 lead. The Huron defense, led by a very active Matt King and Jordan Romick, played well throughout the game. Creating turnovers was the unit’s specialty, including an interception of an Edison pass to close the first period. The Tigers opened the second period with the ball at their own 35-yard line. Bollenbacher fired a pass to Fantozz twice in a row for 33 total yards. Then, on first and 10 from the Charger 27, Bo found WR Jake Hillman for a score and a 14-0 lead. Still in the second period, the home defense forced yet another turnover on the Edison 21yard line. Huron again capitalized immediately with a 16-yard touchdown run by junior Troy DeLamatre. This time the PAT is blocked and the Tigers have a 20-0 lead with 2:22 left in the first half. On the Chargers next possession, the Tiger defenders force a three and out series. The Huron offense remained aggressive by tossing a 57-yard touchdown strike to Jake Hillman. Bollenbacher and Hillman hook up a third time – this time for the two-point conversion. Edison closes the half shell-shocked and down 28-0. On the Charger’s first drive of the second half, following a long pass reception, the receiver is popped by the defensive back and coughs up the ball to the Tigers. Bollenbacher hits Fantozz with a big gainer yet again. This time it went down the left sideline all the way to the Edison 17-yard line. Then a pass to Hillman took Huron to the four-yard line. After a couple of failed attempts to score, Coach Legando has his squad go for it on a fourth down and 3. Brian Bollenbacher runs behind his line for the final score of the game with 5:05 left in the third quarter. The rest of the game was dedicated to getting the underclassmen some valuable varsity experience. The Tiger defense was able to maintain their shutout and get a win by the score of 35-0. Next week, Huron’s varsity travel to Clyde High School to Drew Enderle leads the Tigers out onto face the always tough Fliers. the field waving the flag his father, Joseph Enderle, just brought back from his latest tour in Iraq.

Health & Wellness Fisher-Titus Medical Center Named in Top 100 Best Places to Work in Health Care for Third Year For the third year in a row, Fisher-Titus Medical Center has been selected among the nation’s top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine. Fisher-Titus was the only Ohio hospital to receive the award three consecutive years and one of just four Ohio hospitals named among the top 100. Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare program identifies and recognizes health-care organizations that have successfully built workplace excellence and enabled employees to perform at their optimal level. “This honor reflects what we know: Our employees are our greatest asset,” said FTMC President Patrick J. Martin. “I am very proud of all of them and everything they do every day taking care of our patients in the hospital and our residents at Norwalk Memorial Home and The Carriage House.” With over 900 employees, FisherTitus Medical Center serves Norwalk and Huron County and southern Erie

County including Milan and Berlin Heights with the latest medical advancements. A non-profit community hospital, FTMC provides the area’s 60,000-plus residents a full continuum of care that includes Fisher-Titus Memorial Hospital, a 99-bed acute care hospital; Norwalk Memorial Home, a 69-bed skilled nursing facility; The Carriage House of Fisher-Titus, a 48-unit assisted living facility; and a Home Health Center. FTMC also has been recognized for two consecutive years with HealthGrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award Three hundred and twenty eight health-care organizations participated in the third year of this health-care workplace listing. Only 49 of those were repeat recipients with only 14 organizations being named to the list all three years. Modern Healthcare collected information from both the employer and employees and was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25

employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked an in-depth set of questions that resulted in an analysis in eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction. Modern Healthcare, a weekly magazine published for the health-care industry, will reveal the specific ranking of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, from 1 to 100, in a special supplement to be published Oct. 25. The unranked list is now available online at www.modernhealthcare. com/section/bestplaces-2010. Only three other Ohio hospitals were named to the list including Firelands Regional Medical Center, Henry County Hospital (Napoleon), and Southern Ohio Medical Center (Portsmouth).

Business Business Leaders to Provide Insight for Huron Growth Last year was the inaugural year for the Huron Business Ambassadors Program, a joint venture of the Chamber of Commerce, the city of Huron and the Business Resource Network. “The 2009 pilot program showed clearly ‌ how working together we can create a better environment for businesses to grow successfully here in Huron,â€? said Sheila Ehrnhardt, chamber director. The Ambassador Program focuses on promoting and fostering improved communications among local businesses and related agencies through face-to-face visits by volunteer ambassadors, many of whom are local business owners or other community minded individuals.

During these brief visits, business owners are interviewed and asked seven questions regarding their business experiences in Huron. The process takes about 15-20 minutes and all information is confidential. Huron Business Ambassadors Program has partnered with EHOVE for data collection. All information is compiled and analyzed, and will be made available to the city, the chamber and all businesses who have participated. This program that begins with the business owner, will assist in giving direction and assistance – with the ultimate goal of assisting Huron businesses to grow and prosper. For more information, call Steve Furey at 419-626-2101.

Firelands Habitat For Humanity Selected To Receive Green Building Firelands Habitat for Humanity is among 136 recipients selected to participate in a national green building initiative between Habitat for Humanity International and The Home Depot Foundation. Launched in 2009, the Partners in Sustainable Building Program is a $30 million, five-year program aimed at helping Habitat affiliates in the United States incorporate sustainable building practices in 5,000 Habitat homes. Each Habitat organization receiving a “Partners in Sustainable Building� grant will receive $3,000 for each home built to a standard equivalent to Energy Star and up to $5,000 for each home built to a higher green standard. The selected Habitat affiliates are expected to build 2,400 homes in 2010-2011. “We are extremely grateful to Habitat for Humanity International and The Home Depot Foundation for selecting Firelands Habitat as a “Partners in Sustainable Building� grant recipient,� said Executive Director Barbara Miller. “We will use the funding on 4-5 homes we are building with low-income families in need.� Since the program was established, nearly 1,500 homes have been certified nation-

wide. By incorporating practices such as creating a tight building envelope and using efficient, durable materials in the construction process, many of these homes achieved green building certification with little additional cost. “We believe that healthy homes are the building blocks for thriving, affordable and environmentally sound communities,� said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. “Through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, we are focused on bringing the practical financial and health benefits of green building and maintenance to families of modest incomes. By showing that green building and efficient maintenance of a home can truly keep more money in a family’s wallet, we also hope this effort has a ripple effect on all homeowners nationwide. � “Partners in Sustainable Building� is the first partnership between The Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity International at the national level in the United States.
