Fish Huron Ohio Announces Two Fishing Tournaments sponsored by I’5’s Restaurant Fish Huron Ohio, a group dedicated to promoting fishing in Huron, Ohio, announces two fishing tournaments to be held this fall. The 1st Annual Fish Huron Perch Challenge commences on September 12th,  2009  and features 60 boats fishing for the famous Yellow Perch of Lake Erie.  The tournament will pay back a minimum of 80% of the $50.00 entry fee per boat.  This is an excellent opportunity for family fishing teams, neighborhood challenges, and a chance to show off your angling skills on the lake.  For walleye enthusiasts everywhere, your chance at large payout prizes and bragging rights can be had with the Fish Huron Walleye Challenge scheduled for October 3rd,  2009.

Entry fees for this tournament are $200.00 per boat of 2-6 anglers. This is also a 60 boat event with minimum of 80% paid back in cash and prizes. Tournament Director Steve Carlson commented – “We are looking forward to showcasing the world class fishery that Huron is home to in the fall with these two events.  The Perch Challenge will offer an opportunity for families & friends to fish together with a little competitive fun thrown in.  The Walleye Challenge in early October will feature some very impressive catches as this is TROPHY TIME out of Huron.  The winning weight for a 5 fish tournament limit for the Walleye Challenge will very likely exceed 40 pounds and hopefully

several 10+ pound walleye will be caught on tournament day.”

Sponsor for both events, local eatery I-5’s Restaurant will supply food to those that are attending the After Party Awards and weigh in ceremonies.  Local charity, Cancer Services, will be the recipient of monies from the event.  Online Registration is now open online or to find out more about these two tournaments and fishing in the Lake Erie / Huron River area, visit the website at www.fishhuronohio.com   Fish Huron Ohio was formed to promote fishing the world class waters of Lake Erie in and around the Huron River.  Find out why the area is rated as one of the top fishing destinations on the Great Lakes.

Shawnee Elementary School, home of preschool through 2nd grade, is off to a great start for the 20092010 school year. The students are adjusting well to their new teachers, classes and daily routines. A new friendly face in the building this fall is Mrs. Marie Strayer, the Interim Principal. Mrs. Strayer has come to Shawnee with 21 years of principal experience; and in more recent years she has been an Interim Principal in the Edison District and a Catholic school in Willard.

“My goal is to ‘try to’ keep things running as smoothly as possible on a daily basis”, stated Mrs. Strayer. “Ms. Vonthron has done a great job organizing the building which has helped make this possible,” she continued. Mrs. Strayer stated “the excellent staff at Shawnee has contributed to the smooth start of the school year.” Mrs. Strayer’s number one concern as a principal has always been the safety of the children. In addition to that, her primary role is to support the teachers, assist the students and help the parents when needed. She stated she is also a disciplinarian who must enforce the rules while helping the children learn from their behavior. Mrs. Strayer is striving to keep life at Shawnee as normal as possible for the students. The students have already completed two very successful fire drills for the month of September

and are preparing for Fire Prevention Week in early October. The Red Cross will be presenting their “Super Hero’s” Presentation later this week and Picture Day is scheduled for next week. Students and their families are reminded that the 2nd Annual Back to School BBQ is this Friday, September 11 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be face painting, a jump castle, and $5 tie-dye t-shirts for sale. Stop out and celebrate being “Back to School”. Outside of the school building, Mrs. Strayer enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, reading, and following high school and college sports. Mrs. Strayer and her husband are often seen at Toledo Mudhen’s games as they previously had worked with them and are BIG fans of the team!

Huron City Are you a First Family of Schools Huron and Huron Township? Instrument Drive The Huron City Schools Band Program is conducting a used instrument drive through October 15th. We are in need of gently used band instruments, including but not limited to, flutes, clarinets, alto saxophones, trumpets, trombones, orchestral bells, and snare drums. There are several students interested in playing in band, but unfortunately do not have the financial means to purchase an instrument. If you have an instrument collecting dust somewhere in your house, we would greatly appreciate your donation. The IRS classifies schools as charitable organizations. Your donation of an instrument, therefore, may qualify as a tax deduction. Upon donating the instrument to the school, you will be given a letter confirming your contribution. We ask that you drop instruments off at Woodlands Intermediate School between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Together with the children of Huron, we thank you in advance for your donation. You are putting an instrument in the hands of a child who might not otherwise have that opportunity!

As part of Huron’s Bicentennial year, the Huron Historical Society began a project to locate descendents of Huron pioneers, settlers, and builders by offering the opportunity to meet with Sandy Kingseed, member and genealogist. For the past few months, many residents have come forward and worked on their family trees with much success proving that their family roots were indeed embedded in Huron’s past. Many familiar names have been designated as a members of First Families: Ruggles,

Wright, Sprague, McMillan, Meeker, Everett, Dale, Jarrett, Jeffery, and others. Anyone still interested in still tracing their Huron roots should contact Sandy Kingseed at 419.433.3826, or stop by the Huron Historical Society, located in the Huron Library, on Fridays from 1-3 pm. The Bicentennial Project will culminate in the recognition of Huron’s first Lineage Society, and the continuation of First Families of Huron as part of the Huron Historical Society.

Milestones OBITUARIES Beatrice DeRose

Elizabeth

(Stephens)

Sept. 2, 1918 - Aug. 31, 2009 Beatrice Elizabeth (Stephens) DeRose, 90, of Huron died Monday, Aug. 31, 2009, after a brief illness. She was born Sept. 2, 1918, in Whitley City, Ky., to George and Martha Ellen (Ball) Stephens, the tenth of 12 children. In 1925, her life was forever changed when her father was killed in a coal mining accident; she and four of her siblings, all under the age of 12, were sent to Tiffin to the Junior Order National Orphans Home to live and receive an education. She graduated from the Junior Home in 1937 and received a scholarship to attend Heidelberg College, where she studied education. At Heidelberg she became a proud member of the Phi Society and graduated in 1941 with a bachelor’s degree in education. On June 10, 1942, she eloped with Ercole “Polo” DeRose, but because women teachers contractually were not allowed to be married, she kept her marriage to “Polo” a secret for almost a year. Her only child, son Joseph DeRose, was born April 8, 1948. Beatrice worked as a schoolteacher first at Lacarne Elementary School in Ottawa County and most notably at East Junior High School in Tiffin. A dedicated, strict and professional teacher, she guided many students toward the importance of learning, appreciating, and understanding history and government. She retired in 1980 after 30 years of service. Most importantly, she inspired a love of education and a passion for teaching in her son, who became an educator, and all three of her grandchildren who followed her footsteps into the noble profession of educating our youth. She is survived by her son, Joseph DeRose; daughter-in-law, Deborah (Swartz) DeRose, whom she loved like a daughter; three grandchildren, Shana DeRose (Patrick Smith), Shawn (Mary-Kate), Seth (Kristi); and two great-granddaughters, Giavanna and Claire DeRose. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ercole DeRose; parents; sisters, Flonnie Bowerman, Georgia Eckert, Myrtle Stephens, Mabel Stephens; and brothers Carl, Thomas, Paul, Caleb, Harold, Jack and Homer. A private, family graveside service will take place Sept. 25, 2009, in Tiffin. Burial will take place at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Tiffin. Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Groff Funeral Homes, 1607 E. Perkins Ave., Sandusky. Memorial contributions may be made to Ohio Memorial Church Restoration Fund, c/o Edith Kilgore, P.O. Box 286, Republic, OH 44867 or First Christian Church, 2016 S. County Road 19, Tiffin, OH 44883. Condolences may be shared with her family at grofffuneralhomes.com.

Robert William “Bill” Hess

Sept. 3, 2009 Robert William “Bill” Hess, 84, died Thursday, Sept. 3, 2009, in Firelands Regional Medical Center, Sandusky. Bill was born in Urbana, Ohio, on his father’s birthday.

He retired from General Electric after more than 30 years negotiating and managing contracts for rockets, jet engines, spacecraft and electronic equipment with government agencies, commercial companies and foreign governments. He made many trips to Iran, including ones after the revolution and just prior to the capture of American citizens. Bill was a member of Huron United Methodist Church, Huron Rotary, and Huron Board of Zoning Appeals. He was a volunteer and Board member for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children) and a mentor for troubled youth in the HOSTS (Help One Student To Succeed) program.

John H. Foxworth

Dec. 24, 1941 - Sept. 2, 2009 John H. Foxworth, 67, of Huron died Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2009, in Firelands Regional Medical Center, Sandusky. He was born Dec. 24, 1941, in Port Clinton, and was a resident of Huron since 1964. He was a U.S. Air Force veteran, serving from 1960-64. He worked as a welder for Plumber and Steamfitter’s Local 42 of Norwalk and retired in 1998.

Services took place Saturday in Zion Lutheran Church, 930 Main St., Huron, with the Rev. Raymond Vance officiating. Cremation will take place.

Rev. Roger’s Reflections It’s been pretty impossible to miss the many accolades, memorial services, and even disparaging remarks about Senator Edward Kennedy in the media over the past few weeks. Tales of his private faith, his private and very public deeds; some very bad, others extraordinarily good for millions of persons over the past 50 years. I was a student at the AmeriREV. ROGER can University in Washington, SKELLEY-WATTS D.C. during the worst of Ted Kennedy’s misdeeds, and my girlfriend at the time worked on Capitol Hill so she knew more. During the family tribute, one special story touched my heart, and perhaps yours as well. It was told by son Teddy Kennedy, Jr., who was stricken with bone cancer and had a lower leg removed at age 12. Can you remember all of the activities you wanted to pursue at that age? As Teddy Jr. was trying to adjust to his new artificial leg, his Dad convinced him to try snow skiing – in Massachusetts! Well, the Hyannis Port hill was slick and they slid all the way down to the bottom. Then, they had to get back up, somehow, to the top. 12 year old Teddy, Jr. tried and tried, but failed. He scampered up again, fell down in a heap in the snow, and began to cry. “I’ll never make it. I’ll never make it up that hill. I give up!” the child bellowed. Then, he felt the strong arms of his father come around his waist, and pick him up. That familiar voice whispered in little Teddy’s ear, “Yes you will. Because we’ll make it together.” After several more tries, they did make it up that hill. And as grown-up Teddy, Jr. told it, that was only the first of many “hills” that he and his father climbed together. Saying, “My Dad believed in redemption.” Wouldn’t that be enough for anyone to say about our spiritual character? Isn’t that why we pray, worship, ask for atonement, receive Holy communion? Because we believe in redemption. That no matter how badly we mess up, no matter how much other people may judge us, regardless of whatever may happen to us that is in no way our fault…there is no distinction before God, who is always ready to give us another chance, wrap his loving arms around our waist, hoist us up, and help us climb that icy hill.

Sharon I. Anderson

April 15, 1942 - Sept. 4, 2009 Sharon I. Anderson, 67, of Huron died unexpectedly at her home Friday, Sept. 4, 2009.

Leaf pick up The city of Huron’s leaf pick up program will continue as it did in 2008. We have worked together with Fultz and Sons and Barnes Nursery to continue with weekly pick ups starting with the yard waste collection on Monday September 14, 2009 and continue through Monday December 28, 2009. This will give the residents within the city of Huron 16 opportunities to dispose of their leaves. Residents will also be able to take their leaves to Barnes Nursery compost site at any time at no charge. All leaves will need to be placed by the curb line in either yard waste containers or yard waste bags the day of collection. For those residents that are unable to place their leaves in either yard waste containers or yard waste bags, the city of Huron is currently discussing arrangements with Huron city schools to provide volunteer assistance to the portion of our population that may need this service. Should this service become available, those residents requesting assistance would need to have leaves raked into piles in order for the volunteers to place leaves in your yard waste containers or yard waste bags. Volunteers would not be raking yards. Please call street superintendent, Dan Hoppe at 419433-5000 ext 290 if you wish to be placed on a list for consideration of this service. The city has also contacted local businesses in regards to the purchase of leaf bags. Bags can be purchased from the following businesses at these prices: Huron Drug Mart - $2.49 a bundle of 5 bags Huron Ace Hardware - $2.99 a bundle of 5 bags or $10.00 for 4 bundles of 5 bags – total of 20 Huron Market - $1.99 a bundle of 5 bags With your cooperation we are sure that we will have a successful leaf program for 2009.

LET’S GET GROWING

Fall is upon us Mary Strayer, Master Gardener September is here, and it’s time to prepare your gardens, landscapes, and lawn for the end of the growing season. We need to change our gardening ideas, and shift gears looking ahead to the colder months. Start now, and don’t wait until hard freezes, as this makes the work so much harder, and much less effective. Start with tidying up the landscape of drying foliage, dried stems that look unsightly, fallen smaller branches and debris from trees, shrubs etc. While you are cleaning up, look for noticeable holes in the gardens spaces, and pick up some of the discounted perennials at local greenhouses and markets. Be sure you purchase any mums you want to grow year to year from a greenhouse or nursery which states openly that they are hardy mums. You can purchase mums at general merchandise stores very cheaply, but they are not hardy because they were forced into bloom far too early, and this hurts their systems, and they usually freeze out over winter. Use compost now on your flower beds and around trees and shrubs. This feeds the plants now, and gives them nourishment for the months to come. If you have had a dry summer, water up until the first freeze, again to give the plants sufficient water to survive also. If you have annals growing about your landscape, and want to experiment take cuttings now, dip in rooting compound

and try to root them for growing in the house until next spring. One tip I find very useful is for geraniums. The old teaching was to pull them out of the soil, hang them upside down in a brown paper bag in the basement or other cool, not freezing place until spring, and them prune back and replant. Well, for the past 7 years, I have been experimenting with geraniums, and found that if you simply take the pot and all to the basement, store in a dark cool spot, and don’t water all winter that they survive also. In the spring time, when it is still too cold outside, but nice on a sunny porch, I bring the geraniums upstairs and water them. As they sprout, I trim off what doesn’t resprout, and put outside at the proper time. My geraniums are twice the size as purchased ones, and the flowers are larger and showier. Perennials need a haircut, unless they have winter interest, i.e. the snow or wind looks good blowing them, or making them glisten from your favorite window. Trim your perennials back, but I would recommend looking each variety up in a reputable perennial book so you are sure each is done properly. Now is also the best time to fertilize your lawn with slow-release fertilizer. The grass will store food for the winter, and come back looking great in the spring. Lastly, clean out the garden storage area, throwing away old chemicals, and clean your tools. Rub metal surfaces with a very light coating of cooking oil, and sharpen anything that may need sharpening. This will give you a head start on beginning your spring gardens. Happy Gardening!

Crane Children’s Theatre

Dr. Ronald M. Ruble will teach two Caryl Crane Children’s Theatre pre-teen workshops, “Audition Techniques”  and “Taking the Stage,” on consecutive Saturdays, Sept. 19, Sept. 26, Oct. 3 and Oct. 10 in McBride Auditorium at BGSU Firelands.   To register, children must be ages 10 through 12 and must be ten years of age by the workshops’ start date of Sept. 19.   Maximum enrollment is 20 students per workshop.   These are excellent workshops for children who have little or no experience and for children who have some theatre experience but want to enhance their skills. In “Audition Techniques,” learn to be creative and enjoy the art of trying out for a part.  Learn how to prepare for the audition, how to use the script; how to be more relaxed, how to play a rock or a tree, even be an animal; how to be understood, and how to use your excitement and energy to have fun in an audition.  This workshop should be taken more than once. A notebook and pencil are required.  Attendance is expected.  There will be assignments.  “Audition Techniques” meets for four sessions, 8–

9:50 a.m. “Take the stage!” is a common phrase used by directors. What does it mean? Children will discover a variety of meanings.  Topics will include: (1) the difference between thinking as “self ” or thinking as “actor”; (2) the difference between personal discipline and stage discipline; (3) the difference between leading and following in a scene; and (4) the difference between playing with the audience and playing for the audience.  Stage exercises and stage games will be used to accent such differences.   This workshop should be taken more than once.  A Notebook and pencil are required.  Attendance is expected.  There will be assignments.  “Taking the Stage” meets for four sessions, 10:00 – 11:50 a.m. Fees are $50.00 per student. If a student takes both workshops, the fee is $45.00 for the second workshop.  For additional family members (brother/sister) each workshop is $40.00.

ODOT Construction Report State Route 2, Erie County – ***UPDATE*** State Route 2, from 0.6 mile east of Joppa Road to the Lorain County line, is now open to all lanes of traffic as part of an ongoing resurfacing project. There will be short duration lane closures for bridge deck work; however, at least one lane of traffic will be maintained at all times in each direction. The project is expected to be completed by September 25, 2009. Beginning Tuesday, September 8, at 6:00 a.m., the State Route 60 east and westbound entrance ramps to SR-2 will have narrowed lanes as work is being done on these ramps. This work will continue until September 18. SR-61/SR-113, Erie County – ARRA Project – ***UPDATE*** State Route 61, at its overlap with State Route 113 over Old Woman’s Creek in Berlin Township, is now open! It was previously closed for an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) culvert replacement project. U.S. Route 250, Huron County – ***UPDATE*** U.S. Route 250, between Town Line Road 187 and U.S. Route 224 in Greenwich Township, is closed for new alignment tie-in work as part of a railroad grade separation project.

A unique setting available for:

Tigers Hijack Truckers, 42-18 It was Parent’s night for the home opener against Norwalk at Kalahari Field in Huron. A large crowd was on hand, including the parents of the football team, ball boys, and cheerleaders. There was also a nice presentation before the game of a United States flag flown in combat (Iraq) by Huron alumni, Lieutenant Ara Bartemes. Most in the crowd were a little surprised when the refer- Joey Bogden (56) and Zack Greives (57) lead ees decided to charge another successful run by Derek Dowell. the Tigers with a delay halves behind center. of game penalty. But Ramey opened the scoring by throwthese are important events in the life of a small town, and a penalty like that ing a 16 yard strike to Derek Dowell. was a trivial price to be paid on such Then, late in the first quarter, Dowell would find the endzone again, this occasions. Despite the win, this game had many time on a two yard run. The senior sloppy moments for the home team. running back would finish the night The first half seemed like a constant with 91 yards on 19 attempts and barrage of penalties. The Tigers also two touchdowns. Huron finished the committed six turnovers on the night opening quarter up, 14-0. Norwalk would score first in the (five fumbles and one interception) that gave Norwalk more opportunities second quarter with a 16 yard touchto score then they otherwise would down pass by Tyson Ringle. Huron’s have had. Unlike Huron’s first game Jake Hillman and junior quarterback against Vermilion where weather and Brian Bollenbacher connected twice running success kept the team on the for touchdowns (20, 33) during the ground, the Tigers displayed a decent second period. Hillman would have aerial attack by both quarterbacks Joe 6 receptions for 117 yards during the Ramey and Brian Bollenbacher. The game. Norwalk would score again, younger Bollenbacher would lead the during this action packed quarter, on Tiger’s offense during the second peri- a 30 yard pass with 4:18 left. This was od and the start of the fourth quarter, the first play following a mishandled while senior Joe Ramey opened both punt return by the Tigers. At the end

of the second period, the Truckers looked to be on the move again, but were stopped by an interception by Jarod Blakely with :43 left. Huron led at halftime, 28 – 12. Midway through the third period, Huron was able to stop a Norwalk drive on downs at the Tiger 24 yard line. Justin Hicks immediately scampered off a 52 yard run to the Trucker 24 yard line. the way for The very next play, Ramey would hit Huron’s Patrick Moore on a 24 yard touchdown pass to give the Tigers a 35-12 lead. Norwalk’s last score of the night was set up by a long punt return to the Huron 12 yard line. On the very next play, Ringle ran the ball into the endzone. No Norwalk extra point attempts were successful through out the game. Third quarter ended with Huron up, 35-18. The Tiger’s last score of the evening came on another of Jarod Blakely’s opportunistic plays. This time, Blakely recovered a Trucker fumble on the Huron 29 yard line and raced the length of the field for a touchdown with 7:57 left in the game. That play closed the book on all scoring with the Tigers collecting a 42-18 victory. The Huron defense, led by senior captain Zack Grieves played a hard hitting game and punished the Trucker quarterback and runners all night.

Volleyball Win Streak Finishes at 99 Huron’s Varsity Volleyball did something this week that is hasn’t done in 99 previous SBC conference matches spanning eight years…it lost. In a thrilling matchup between two solid volleyball programs, the Edison Chargers finish the night on top 3 games to 2 (27-17, 20-25, 24-26, 26-24, 15-13). While the contest was played in Milan, the Huron crowd, led by a boisterous student section, cheered their team on. The first game had the widest margin and went the Chargers way. But after that the pressure stepped up a notch for both teams. The second game saw no more than a three point differential between the teams until Huron took a 16-10 lead after two really strong blocks by sophomore Katlyn Sommer and a spike by senior captain Jesse Miedema. But Edison regrouped and closed in to within one score, 18-17. It was at that point that junior Devon Koenig made some terrific plays to finish off the game for Huron 25-20. The next two games were both nail biters that went to extra points. In game three, won by the Tigers, there was never more than two points separating the two teams. At crunch time, Miedema and Sommer stepped up. Combine that with two costly miss hit serves by Edison and Huron, again, finished on top. As senior Adriana Deluca served the last two Tiger points, it looked like streak might still survive this challenge.

Senior captain Jesse Miedema makes a play on the Edison serve. Game four gave no early indications of the problems to come. Huron came out strong and took an 18-13 lead. Edison called time out to try and change

momentum and change it they did. The Chargers outscored the Tigers 9-4 to tie the match at 22 when Coach Wood called a time out of his own. Despite two vicious kills by Sommer and Miedema, Wood was forced to call time again when Edison took a 24-23 lead. Huron got one more point to tie it at 24 but then the Chargers took the next two scores for the win to tie the match at two games a piece. During the last game to 15, the lady Tigers always seemed two points down. Jesse Miedema, the best overall player on the floor for both teams, displayed her power and experience trying to bring her team back, but the Chargers were steady and between Stewart and Blodgett had power of their own. Another potentially costly bad serve by Edison allowed the Tigers to tie it at 12-12, but the girls from Milan scored the last three out of four points to secure the victory. Still, what a marvelous achievement it has been by this special program. This span of success includes a state championship, numerous conference titles and big time playoff wins. Don’t be too alarmed, there is a lot of talent on this team and in the program overall. For that, we can thank the hard work of Coach Wood, his staff, the players and their parents for all the dedication they have shown and still show.

Girls Varsity Tennis Results Huron continued on with its 2009 girls tennis campaign with two matches at home this past week. The team suffered two tough conference losses. The first was a loss to SMCC 3-2 and then were swept by Oak Harbor, 5-0. Nancy Bloor won one of her singles matches against St. Mary’s Morgan Linden 6-2, 6-1, and then was beaten by

Ashley LaFountain, 6-2, 6-2. The other win for the Tigers was a doubles match by Emily Waldrop and Erin Black that came against the Panther’s Sarah May and Molly Doyle, 6-2, 6-1. The tennis team now has a 2-4 record and is 1-3 in the Sandusky Bay Conference.
