Your vote is (was) your choice

I write in response to Mr. Gary Philabaum’s September 9th letter titled, “Your vote is your choice.”   

Mr. Philabaum implied that the recent change to the meeting agenda prevents Council from hearing what people have to say.  To what is he referring?  Are we making the audience prove U.S. citizenship or PC residency to speak a single word – that’s got to be it, right?  Hardly.     

Council voted to move public comments from agenda item #19 up to #7.   That’s at the top of the meeting, after roll call and before the mayor’s report.  Remember, according to Philabaum, “It is unclear why council would not want to hear what the people have to say about what they are doing.”   We are.

After losing to Genoa by 71 points last season, many people would figure Port Clinton was just hoping to have a respectable showing against the Comets this time around.

The Redskins, however, were looking for much more than that, and managed to come up with what was probably their biggest victory in two decades, defeating Genoa, 27-19, to improve to 3-0 on the season.

It was just another step in the rebuilding process that appears to have accelerated under head coach Beau Carmon, who was proud to see his kids avenge last year’s 84-13 loss to the Comets.

Danbury comes up short against St. Mary CC, 36-14

Danbury came into its matchup with St. Mary Central Catholic hoping to get a big victory that would move them to 3-0 and give them momentum heading into the conference slate.

Unfortunately, the Lakers fell short in their contest with the Panthers, losing 36-14, but Danbury did prove it could play with SMCC, keeping pace in a game that was closer than the final score indicated and taking a step in the right direction for a program that is looking to build its foundation.

With the loss, the Lakers fell to 2-1 while the Panthers improved to 1-2.

Losing the waterfront

I would like to thank every member of CORD for all the time and effort they have put in to save our parks for us. I would also like to congratulate them for their success on getting the needed signatures so a petition can be put on the November ballot.

I truly believe the citizens will support this petition, giving us the right to vote if we want to keep our parks as parks, or let our administration have a developer fill them with those ugly, view blocking condos.
