Thanks
On May 20, the Elks Lodge No. 1718 served a wonder benefit breakfast for the community to partake in. The benefactor, myself, would like to thank you, the public, for attending and supporting this delicious activity! Your support and an ENF Grant have enabled the Elks to purchase for me an electric scooter. This scooter enables me to to take myself to the market, go to public functions (Walleye Fest yes, I was there!), visit friends, the list goes on!
The hard work of the Elks membership and you, the public, have afforded me a new level of independence. There were even folks at the benefit breakfast who donated monetarily. A big heartfelt thank you to you also!


With heartfelt regards,

Big idea
My name is Ken and I am writing to suggest that a group or organization looking for a community project restore the huge man statue on Ohio 163 next to the Shell station (close to 163 & 269 intersection). They could restore/repair him into a fisherman holding a walleye and put a sign below stating something like: Welcome to the Port Clinton area — Walleye capital of the world. It would help advertise the area, restore a rusty statue and give a group an opportunity to improve the area. I am physically unable to do this type of renovation because of a stroke. But maybe someone will think this is a good idea and take on the project.
I enjoy your paper and read it every week. Thanks for listening to my idea.
