Magruder Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Fund Committee

On behalf of Magruder Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Fund Committee, I’d like to thank all of the people who donated items, money or time to our "Dollars for Scholars" fundraiser. It takes a group of committed people to undertake a project as large as this. Our outstanding committee also proved themselves more than “up for the task” and I’d like to personally thank each and every one of them for all their help. 

As this was a first for the Auxiliary to do this type of event, I am pleased to say it was a resounding success. I’d also like to thank Paula and Frank Murphy for their generous sponsorship of the venue, food and drinks. 

Sue Johnson
Auxiliary Vice President
"Dollars for Scholars" Chairwoman


Issue 6

It is with solid clarity that I write this letter suggesting that issue 6 is the only positive move forward for the citizens of Port Clinton. It is not an attack on the City as our Mayor suggested at candidate’s night. I doubt that his insinuating that our city will not be refurbished if this issue passes is the truth, unless he and council choose it to be so. The developer da jour has now added restoration of the old city hall into the downtown mix with a very clear threat: no waterfront development-no downtown restoration.
