We would like to say “thank you” and send a big hub to the young couple that paid our dinner check at Casa Las Palmas on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
We were totally unaware of their actions until we asked for our bill and the waitress said that it had been taken care of! We were truly at a loss for words.
Happy New Year everybody!
We had 11 new homes built in the Village in 2012, and 16 house additions, which included seven decks. This was twice as many additions than last year and about same number of new construction. We built half a dozen garages and sheds and four fences (remember the good side faces your neighbor!). Jamestown Tavern put in an outdoor expansion and Bay Point built a new store. There were two Waterfront Development permits and the Planning Commission ruled on seven new cases at public hearings, including two subdivisions representing six new buildable lots. The Planning Commission also held several informal meetings with local developers for upcoming projects.
Dear Ottawa County Residents,
The success of Ottawa County is NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING. I say this each and every year that I have been the Director for The Salvation Army. Each year our Red Kettle Goal is given to us by The Northwest Ohio Salvation Army in Toledo.
The Lakeside Volunteer Fire Department is very grateful for the strong community support given by individuals, businesses, community organizations and churches. This year’s annual support response has been tremendous which assists in purchasing equipment and offering Fire and EMS Services to the residents and visitors of Danbury Township.
With their 46-26 win over Lake, the Port Clinton girls improved to 13-2 on the season, marking one of the greatest starts in the program's history.
After trailing, 19-16, at halftime, the Redskins took control by outscoring the Flyers, 17-5, in the third quarter before blowing the game open with a 13-2 advantage in the fourth quarter.
Emily Ashley led all scorers with 16 points and Hannah Weaver contributed 12.
Jordyn Taylor had 14 points to lead Lake.
Plans to restore the old Port Clinton Lighthouse and transfer the historical structure from private ownership to the city will be the focus of a public meeting being held Jan 17 at the Ida Rupp Public Library in Port Clinton. The meeting will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy, a local non-profit organization, called the meeting to brief the public on the ongoing restoration effort and how it will impact the future of the city and its residents. The Conservancy will also provide a brief history of the lighthouse and will be recruiting motivated volunteers to assist in the restoration, distribute flyers, assist with future fundraising, and other duties.
Port Clinton's Redskin Bowlers traveled to Tri County Bowl in Woodville Friday and were swept by the Eagles, knocking the Redskin Boys out of first place in the Northern Ohio Bowling Conference.
The Redskins moved ahead during the first two team games by rolling games of 990-997 to the Eagles 982-982 to grab a 23 pin lead going into Baker.
