I have said it many times…Ottawa County’s biggest need is JOBS! We need JOBS! I have spoken to the folks at the Job Store at the Resource Center many times. There are many cases locally where good local jobs are available, but businesses have trouble finding folks with the proper skills. There are also many cases where the skills may be there, but no jobs. We at the Beacon want to bridge the gap between good jobs and good people. Therefore, starting in February, we intend to begin posting Help Wanted ads on Page 2A, right up front, taking them out of the classifieds. Our Vicki Theobald will be in charge of businesses who want to place bold and visible help wanted ads in an effort to connect our 20,000 readers with good jobs in the area.
My favorite sports photographer, Bill Migala, came down with some health problems at Christmas time and has been out of action for a few weeks. Well, he’s back, and did he take some nice action shots of the Port Clinton-Oak Harbor boys’ game last Friday and the PC-Sandusky St. Mary’s girls’ game last Saturday. The photos we don’t print (and they are numerous) we always put online at www.thebeacon.net.
