Mayor Leone and Rick Noderer face off on Issue 6

Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone and CORD member Rick Noderer represented their stances on Issue 6 at Candidate’s Night Thursday, October 2, at the Elk’s Lodge in Port Clinton. Mayor Leone represented voting no and Noderer represented voting yes on the controversial city park ballot initiative that would give Port Clinton residents voting rights at each general election to decide on the leasing and selling of city park land.

“This is not a yes or no vote on condos, this is not a yes or no vote on saving all the parks,” said Mayor Leone during his 5 minute allotted time period. “This is an attack on moving forward for the City of Port Clinton.”

Mayor Leone went on to explain that during his three years in office he and the administration have capitalized on $4.6 million dollars of competitive grant money. He looks forward to getting more of that grant money and continuing helping the City of Port Clinton in years to come. He and the administration have done this with the help of republicans and democrats; two of those being Senator Randy Gardner and Representative Chris Redfern.

The members of the 1976 Port Clinton High School football team that went 9-1 with 7 shutouts and a Great Lakes League Championship were formally inducted into the Port Clinton High School Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday Night. With Leo Alvarado holding the GLL Championship Trophy, the team surrounds its head coach, Jim Hastings, who made the trip from Tennessee to Ohio this weekend for the special ceremonies. Hastings teams were 16-4 in his two seasons at the helm of the Redskins. Hastings spoke to the gathering on Saturday night and told a few stories about the team. He also admitted he may have made a mistake leaving for a College Coaching job at Morehead State in Kentucky. "No matter where I have gone in my coaching career, my heart is now and will always remain with Port Clinton and these great players." Two of the members of that team have passed on, including the starting center, Mike Ebert, who was represented by his wife Olga (pictured far left).
