Art Club sponsors day trip

Port Clinton Artists’ Club “Reflections of America” museum tour will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18. The Butler Institute of American Art, located in Youngstown, is the first museum of American art. The original structure, dedicated in 1919, is an architectural masterpiece listed on the National Register of Historic places. The museum's mission is to preserve and collect works of art in all media created by citizens of our country. The Institute's holdings now exceed 20,000 individual works, and the Butler is known worldwide as "America's Museum." The Butler permanent collection includes works from four centuries, and is assembled in galleries in chronological order according to the history of America. The collection mirrors the dynamic changes the nation has experienced in the four centuries of our country’s history.

Waterworks Park

In response to the Aug. 15 Beacon article regarding the Waterworks Park development, we would like to make a couple of comments regarding why the million dollar development would not be conducive for full and part-time residents.

Most residents along E. Perry Street are against the development and so are we. We love the small town ambience and flavor of the city and always feel welcome and privileged to be part of this town on the Lake Erie shore. This is heaven for us. The disturbance of the community/city would be an unwelcoming event and make it not ours or any middle class folks choice of choosing.
