CIC Run/Walk for Humanity June 2

The CIC Run/Walk for Humanity will be held Sunday, June 2 at the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinotn. Now 19 years old, this event is still a Catawba-Port Clinton community calendar highlight. “We always have close to 300 runners and walkers who participate in the 5-mile run or 3-mile run/walk. And for kids, we do a ¼ mile fun run. So this event is not only a great event for Ottawa County’s Habitat for Humanity, it is truly a family-based event. We welcome strollers, dogs and all ages to enjoy,” says CIC’s Michael Schenk.

Applications are still being accepted for all events and t-shirts will go to the first 250 registered.

Race day registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the CIC Maintenance Building with parking in the lot across from the CIC Pro Shop on Beach Club Road. The 5-mile run starts promptly at 9 a.m. with the 3-mile run/walk starting at 9:15 a.m.

Judge Hany forms Veterans Affairs Committee

Judge Frederick C. (Fritz) Hany II has instituted a Municipal Court Veteran’s Affairs Committee. The committee will aid the Probation Department in addressing mental health and/or substance abuse issues unique to veterans. “In many cases, veterans with no previous criminal history find themselves in the criminal justice system after their tour of duty,” Hany stated, “One goal of this committee is to target these cases and direct offenders to resources available for appropriate treatment.”

The committee has also undertaken a project to document and honor Ottawa County Veterans’ service to the nation. Chairperson Peggy Debien, herself a former Naval Officer, said, “The displays located in the lobby of the Municipal Court are intended not only to honor our county’s veterans but also to present examples of good citizenship in our country.”

In addition to Debien, members appointed to the committee are County Commissioners James Sass and Jodi Regal; DeAnn Louk, Senior Veterans Service Officer (currently on active duty); Veterans David McDougall, Roger Velliquette, Ron Distel and Military Historian, Kevin Winters.
