Little Free Library comes to Marblehead

The first Little Free Library user, Bailee Hoag. 

In a "petite" opening, the Marblehead peninsula celebrates it's first Little Free Library.  In a quiet little corner by a green swing with a peek of the lake sits a creation by Dave Follman.  For the love of his wife, Dave created this quiet place after his wife Sheila saw the website and fell in love with the concept of a series of little free libraries.

Fall is in the Air

Dr. Jackson with a nice walleye.

Even though the first day of fall doesn’t officially start until Sept. 22, the weather we are experiencing this week makes it feel like it has already arrived. The reports of walleye in certain areas of the lake right now would confirm that it is indeed an early fall. I just hope that winter delays itself long enough for an extraordinary extended fall bite.


Rockets defeat St. Mary’s in volleyball

The Oak Harbor Rockets Varsity Volleyball Team defeated St. Mary’s Central Catholic in 4 games Tuesday night, 25-19, 24-26, 25-20, 25-22.  Leading the team to victory was Jordyn Thorp with 4 aces, 14 kills and 4 blocks.  Emma Bergman had 3 aces and 16 assists.  Athena Eli provided 21 digs and 25 serve receptions.  The JV lost in 2.  The Rockets play Perkins at home on Thursday.


Waterworks Park

How soon we forget. We now see a replay of 2007 on the Waterworks Park issue. The people who oppose any development and insist that the citizens should decide were already accommodated 6 years ago.  The issue of rezoning the park to permit the development was on the ballot November 6, 2007.  Those in favor had their say and, among many others, were supported by the opinion of three former mayors: myself, John Fritz, and Jeanne Huskey. The opposition was organized by the same C.O.R.D. group that continues to oppose it as if they have forgotten that the people spoke to them that November and supported the change to allow the development.
