C.O.R.D. gathers required signatures for initiative ordinance

Citizens Organized for Responsible Development (C.O.R.D.) have gathered 280 signatures, more than the required 175, in support to put their initiative ordinance on the ballot for November. The petitions were handed over to Port Clinton City Auditor, Cole Hatfield, on Tuesday, June 24.

“According to Ohio law, I am to hold the petitions for ten days and then I am to submit a certified copy to the Board of Elections,” said City Auditor Hatfield. “The Board of Elections then examines the petition, checking signatures, which is protocol for every petition, and then a certified letter is sent to me stating the petition’s validity and the initiative will be put on the ballot in November.”


Introducing: Oak House

Tucked away on the east end of Port Clinton, Oak House is a little known jewel of a place.  It is a non-judgmental, safe haven for adults recovering from mental illness.  This is a place where all kinds of interesting, challenging and fun things take place.    

In just one month all these might be on the calendar:  celebrating birthdays with cake and karaoke, painting beach scenes, doing exercises, watching a movie complete with popcorn, competing in Wii bowling and taking a trip to a place like the Toledo Botanical Garden.  Each month’s calendar is crammed full of things to do and places to go, all planned by Activities Coordinator Julia Enderle.  She says, “We’ve come to embrace members as one family.  They always feel welcomed and wanted.”
