PCHS Athletic Hall of Fame inductees: Scott Rickel and Class of 1976 football team

  • Published in Sports

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).


Are the Mayor’s statements meant to confuse?

Rick Noderer of Citizens Organized for Responsible Development (CORD), under the Ohio Sunshine Law, did a public record’s request through City Hall requesting copies of leases from the City leasing property. Noderer requested leases from 2009 to 2014 and only received two documents back from the City.

“From my request I received two leases through the City: one was regarding the Senior Center and the other was Sassy Sal Charters,” said Noderer. “This tells me that the City does not consider park reservation contracts or event applications as leases.”
