Port Clinton holds off Oak Harbor, 57-46

After a promising start to the season was quelled by four-game losing streak that left Port Clinton at 3-6, the Redskins have responded by winning three straight games to get back to .500 after their 57-46 victory over Oak Harbor.

Holding a 21-14 lead midway thru the second quarter, Port Clinton, which is now 6-6 overall and 5-2 in the Sandusky Bay Conference, saw the Rockets go on an 11-0 run to take a 25-21 lead before responding with an 8-0 run of their own to take a 29-25 advantage into the half. Joe Brenner started the run with a bucket inside with 1 minute, 12 seconds remaining in the second quarter and Tytan Rumball connected on a three-pointer from the left wing with 33 seconds remaining before his brother, Carter, drained a three in the closing seconds to finish off the spurt. Oak Harbor was unable to get any closer for the rest of the game.

Junior forward Andrea Cecil led Oak Harbor to a 79-58 comeback victory over Edison while scoring her 1,000th career point and setting a school record for points in a single game with 36.

Cecil helped key a second-quarter run that saw the Rockets, who improved to 7-7 overall and 4-4 in the Sandusky Bay Conference with the victory, rally to cut the 25-13 deficit after one quarter to 42-37 at halftime.

In the third quarter, Oak Harbor took over, outscoring the Chargers, 25-11, to take a 62-53, into the fourth.


Potassium Iodide resupply available for Davis-Besse 10 mile EPZ

The Ottawa County Health Department announced that a replacement supply of potassium iodide (KI) has arrived and is available for persons living or working within the Davis-Besse 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ). 

KI can protect the thyroid gland if properly administered in the event of an off-site leak of radioactive iodine from the nuclear power plant. Public health officials remind residents that the best precaution is to follow evacuation recommendations for their specific area if so advised during an emergency.

“The administration of KI is meant to be a supplement to evacuation or sheltering, and not a replacement for these actions” said Ottawa County Health Commissioner Nancy Osborn. “The public should not delay evacuation or leave shelter in order to obtain KI.”

The health department has provided KI stockpiles to schools, nursery schools, daycare centers, nursing homes, hospitals and detention facilities. In addition, Ottawa County EMA has been distributing KI to emergency workers such as police, fire, EMS and highway departments. 

Ottawa County residents who live or work in the Davis-Besse 10-mile EPZ are eligible to receive KI at the Ottawa County Health Department, 1856 East Perry Street, Port Clinton, Ohio, Monday through Friday, from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  For more information, contact the Ottawa County Health Department at 419-734-6800.
