It was a little disconcerting this season that Huron was beaten by Margaretta in volleyball twice and had to share the SBC crown. But then again, when you have had the success the Tigers have had over the last decade on the state level, only one match really counts. That’s the one that decides the District Champion during the State tournament. In that win-or-go-home match, Huron taught the talented Polar Bears a lesson about executing on a big stage. For those who had only seen the Tigers play in those two loses, what happened Saturday night must have come as quite a shock. But for those who have also seen Huron play the state caliber teams that Coach Wood brought in during 2010 knew the young ladies were capable of this. To be fair, the season has had its share of frustration because diehard fans knew this team is capable of great things, but had seen them struggle inexplicably at times. Following this exhilarating 3-0 win (25-19, 25-8,25-16), Tigers Coach Wood was asked what the difference was between tonight’s performance and the two earlier losses. He answered with just one word:

“Focus!” Getting off to a good start was going to be key for Huron. And they certainly accomplished that with two early kills by Kat Ferrell and an ace by Hannah Figgins. Following a kill by Taylor Slauterbeck that gave the Tigers 11-4 lead, Margaretta called time to rally the troops. The Polar Bears could get no closer than 13-10, when Slauterbeck clobbered another kill, Taryn Graham served an ace, Ferrel blocked a kill attempt, and Katlyn Sommer dropped a touch shot over the net to take five of the next six points for an 18-11 Tiger lead. Ferrell closed out the victory 25-19 win with a kill. Senior captain Taryn Graham, again led the team’s defense with 17 digs – some of which were unbelievably spectacular and quick. Hannah Figgins contributed nine and Slauterbeck had eight. Defense was sharp, particularly in game two when the Tigers held Margaretta to just eight points. Huron’s attack was very balanced during the opening 10-2 run. It may have been their best stretch of the season thus far. The Polar Bears looked absolutely stunned

Leaf Pickup Explained In 2008, the City of Huron’s leaf pick up program was modified from past practices in an effort to provide a more cost effective and efficient service. The program utilizes the city’s existing yard waste removal service, which provides all residents a weekly opportunity to dispose of leaves. All residents must use the appropriate yard waste receptacles for leaf disposal: 20 to 35 gallon trash can receptacles clearly

marked as “YARD WASTE” containers. In place of receptacles, biodegradable yard waste bags may be substituted, which can be purchased at most retail outlets. There is no maximum amount of leaf refuse; however, no receptacle can weigh more than 50 pounds. The city’s refuse hauler, FSI, will pick up all packaged leaves as part of the normal weekly collection cycle, with the service continuing through Monday Dec. 27.

when their coach called timeout. Out of the break, the Tigers fired off another six straight points, helped by some outstanding, aggressive serves from the sophomore Ferrell (four aces) to take a commanding 16-2 lead. Slauterbeck fired an ace for the 25th point in the 25-8 win. During the third and final game, Margaretta started out playing more aggressively and hung with Huron up until 9-8. Then the Tigers went on a 7-3 run that was capped off by a powerful Slauterbeck kill again forcing a Polar Bear time out. Now up 16-11, Huron did not let up. The Tiger defense was outstanding with big blocks by Sommer, Koenig, and Erin O’Reilly while the back line was diving for saves that looked like sure points for the opposition. Ferrell, as she seems to have a knack for, closed out the match with a kill and the decisive 3-0 win. None of Huron’s aggressive attacks would have been possible if it weren’t for Taryn Graham’s digs and the outstanding play by setters Sam Wechter (17 assists) and Sydney Grendow (15 assists) who combined for exactly zero ballhandling errors.

Contest Anglers Donate Catches to Charity The FishHuronOhio group sponsored its second annual Fall Walleye Challenge on Saturday, Oct. 16, drawing some 250 fishermen from Ohio and four surrounding states. Many of the anglers agreed to donate their catch to a local charity. Of the more than 1,300 pounds of fish caught, 430 pounds of fresh walleye were donated to the Huron Helping Hands Food Pantry.

BY JUDGE BILL STEUK, HURON MUNICIPAL COURT As of August 9, 2010, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) allows drivers to remove their home addresses on vehicle registration certificates.

From contemporary characters like Spongebob Squarepants to the timeless classics of ghosts and princesses, no one left empty handed as the hopes of overflowing treat bags became reality. This year’s theme was “The Haunted Swamp,” where old movie monsters came to life. The resident dining room went through a transformation and staff and volunteers enjoyed entertaining the young and old who dared touring the ‘swamp’. The courtyard also served as a maze to navigate with all kinds of creatures waiting to scare at every turn.

offered an opportunity to win cakes and all kinds of delicious confections. The Trick-or-Treating included residents, family members and staff – many of whom who were in costume themselves – lining the halls passing out goodies as the children passed through. The trick-or-treat ran the length of the facility from the entrance all the way through the new rehabilitation center. While the themes may change from year to year, this remains the highlight – the residents always love seeing the children in their costumes.

Keeping a Home Inventory Smart Idea BY BRUCE MILLER, STATE FARM® AGENT This one goes in the category of those things we are planning to do when we get the time making or updating a home inventory. It may not sound like an exciting activity, but in the event of a calamity such as a fire, burglary, flood or tornado, a current home inventory can save a lot of time, money and frustration in the insurance settlement process. Take this test. Sit down and try to make a detailed list of what’s in each room of your dwelling. It’s amazingly hard to remember all the “stuff ” that accumulates – wall hangings, curtains, cookware, clothing, sports gear, jewelry, knick-knacks, rugs, clocks, etc. Get the picture? This weekend, go ahead and bite the bullet. Video or photo each room and list major items on paper. Record brand, model, date and amount of purchase, if possible (serial numbers are important on some items). Also, saving receipts on big-ticket items is always a good idea. For antiques and jewelry, written descriptions or appraisals are important. Don’t forget the closets, and remember, even your attic may be full of valuables. You can usually get a home inventory checklist from your insurer. These lists are great tools to help organize your records. Finally, remember to update your inventory every year or so, and keep it in a safe location away from your dwelling. Taking the time to make and update your inventory now, can help you in working with your insurer later and maximizing your recovery should you have the need.

Community Thanksgiving Meal Brought Back to Life In 2008, Christine Morehart became burdened with the reality of local families that may be going without because of job loss, foreclosure or other financial hardships. Something had to be done, and while she knew there was not going to be a cure for every economic woe, there could be relief and help given. Other people who Morehart knew through church felt the same way. So a plan was made to deliver complete, ready-to-cook meals to area families for Thanksgiving. Through pulling resources with friends at the chapel and some help from the Nehemiah Partners of Sandusky to help identify individuals in need, 15 local families were able to be helped that year. In 2009, the push was to grow the outreach so that more families could be helped through having a community meal, but it was not to be. Despite efforts to grow the outreach, doors were shut on the program. It seemed that the community meal would have to wait ... that is until 2010. Pastor Mike Cheek of The Sandusky Community Church of the Nazarene met with the Moreharts to hear about the vision, and accepted the challenge on behalf of his church. So this Thanksgiving, those in need in the community can go the Nazarene church, located at 1617 Milan Road in Sandusky in the former IAB Club. The meal will be held on Thankgiving Day, from 1:30 to 4 p.m., and the meal is free. Cheek introduced Morehart to Rose Bailey from the church, who along with other members, has been instrumental, diligent and visionary in their desire to see this mission come to pass. “The meal will be designed so that people know that God loves them, and that we love them too, and that they are not forgotten.” Morehart told her congregation during services. “We want to serve them in a way so that they leave the experience knowing they are special. We have the goal of feeding 800 people on Thankgiving Day.” Her husband Mark says that regardless of whether people are in a financial poverty, spiritual poverty, or just a poverty of loneliness, the outreach is there to help for a day.

“The needs are increased this year, and even Victory Kitchen (a food provider for the Homeless in Sandusky) has cut back due to a drop in donations. This makes the meal even more important for the community.” On Nov. 4 at Skateworld / Ghostly Manor Thrill Center, a benefit concert will be held, featuring the band “Unforsaken” to help Harvest of the Heart and Victory Kitchen. Also, there has also been a Web site set up for the Celebration of Harvest of the Heart, The web page is devoted exclusively to Christ-centered, food based ministries in the area. Anyone who would like to have their ministry listed on the site (for free) can contact the Feed Sandusky group directly through the site. This is a very practical way to reach out and help someone in our community. Families or businesses are welcome to get involved. No good deed is too small. If you want to help or even if you want to be helped, please call Christine at 419 515 0423 or Email to and see how you can serve.

Grant Improves Lakefront Park Playground NOMS Healthcare welcomes Allison Petznick, D.O. and Matthew Petznick, D.O.

to their Primary Care team NOMS Healthcare is proud to announce the addition of Allison Petznick, D.O. and Matthew Petznick, D.O. to their primary care team.

The playground at Lakefront Park has undergone a major transformation thanks to Huron Parks & Recreation and The Sandusky/Erie County Community Foundation. HPRD and the SECCF joined forces this past spring to replace the timber containment area for the “playground wood fibers” with a concrete material and to add additional playground mulch to enhance the safety of the playground structures. “Safety is our top priority,” said Chris Basting, Huron Parks maintenance manager. Huron Parks & Recreation had applied for and was awarded a $5,000 grant through the Sandusky/Erie County Community Foundation, which made funding for this project possible. HPRD donated the labor to complete the project and the SECCF granted the funds to cover the cost of the materials and to outsource the concrete work, explained Basting.

Drs. Allison and Matt Petznick are family physicians with specialized fellowship training in diabetes and sports medicine. They currently are establishing their practice in Sandusky at the NOMS Medical Facility.

Many county residents, city residents, and visitors of all ages have benefited this summer from these upgrades. The concrete containment area will offer longevity from the former deteriorating timbers that often needed replacing. The playground wood fiber surface periodically needs to be added to as over time the fibers are known to blow away, break down, disperse, settle and compact. The wood fibers are more economical and ecologically friendly; however, routine maintenance is required. The City of Huron’s Park System is currently the home to four playground structures: Fabens Park, Lakefront Park, Oklahoma Park and Nickel Plate Beach. Due to the nature of all four park locations and Huron’s reputation for being a “vacation destination”, these parks are in continual use. Parents and children are often seen picnicking and playing during the week while on weekends the parks are filled with large family reunions, sports tournaments and an occasional wedding. “Our gratitude goes out to SECCF who deemed our project worthy of funding. They have helped us in the past and we greatly appreciate their support. Without them we would not have accomplished the entire project,” Basting said.

Sports Huron Defense Restores the Roar with Shutout; Tigers beat Port Clinton, 20-0 Much maligned after last week’s lackluster performance in the loss at home against the Polar Bears, the Huron Tiger’s on-the-road defense came out and proved their mettle against a much improved Port Clinton Redskin team. Coach Legando’s offense also came to play as they would outrun the Redskins by a 164-to-54 yard margin, and in general dominate the time of possession in a 20-0 win. Huron’s victory helped earn the squad a playoff birth and the team will face Elyria Catholic (9-1) next week. The Tigers takes the opening kickoff and immediately marches 77 yards on 16 plays for a touchdown. The score came on a fourth and goal attempt where Bollenbacher shot puts the ball between two defenders and three yards to Sean Fantozz for the 7-0 lead. After a big kickoff return, Port Clinton starts on its own 47-yard line. At first, they easily pick up two first downs. But the Huron defense stiffens and stops the Redskins on downs at the Tiger 21, then gains confidence as they force Port Clinton to punt on the next series. On Huron’s third possession, starting on their own 14, the Tigers again shows outstanding offensive balance as they cut through the hometeam’s defense on an 86 yard drive. QB Brian Bollenbacher tosses a six-yard touchdown pass to # 83 Brandon Krueger with 9:39 left in the first half, to take a 14 - 0 lead. Port Clinton mounts a drive that goes deep into Huron territory late in the first half. Facing fourth down on Huron’s 15-yard line, the Redskins are again forced to give the ball back to the bend-but-don’t-break, Tiger defense. After forcing Huron to go three and out, the home team gets the ball back one more time but with less than

WR Brandon Krueger catches one of his team-leading six receptions of the night. a minute left, throws an interception to Kyle Pisano that essentially ends the first half. The Tigers’ first possession of the second half began deep in their own territory with 9:36 left in third quarter. The big play was a nifty reverse run by Jake Hilman that gives his team a big first down on the Port Clinton 30-yard line. After a pass completion to Brandon Krueger (six receptions for 72 yards), Huron attempts a 40-yard field goal that goes wide right. The Tiger defense – that seems to get stronger as the game goes on – forces PC into a three and out scenario. Huron takes over on its 44 with 4:12 left in the third

period. The offense looks sharp moving briskly to the Redskin nine-yard line. A couple plays later, Bollenbacher runs the ball in from seven yards away for the final score of the evening, 20-0. While the Tiger defense continues to shut down the Port Clinton offense, Huron running-backs led by Justin Hicks chew up clock the rest of the way. Hicks finishes with 77 yards on 24 carries. On two reverses, Jake Hillman adds 32 rushing yards to his 30 receiving yards on four catches. Huron intercepts the PC quarterback three times on the night, including two drive killers late in the third quarter.

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service.
