I received a call from old friend LuellaTerp, who worked for many years as theclerk for Ottawa County Common PleasJudge Donald Wargowski. She called totell me that Judge Wargowski and his wifeFaith have “come home” from their retire-ment place in Aiken, SC. They are now residents at Edgewood Manor in PortClinton. Judge Wargowski introduced meto Founders Day in Toussaint. One of my rst assignments at WRWR in 1972 wasto cover the celebration of the foundingof Toussaint by French explorer EtienneBrule in the 1600s. I think the Judge playedthe accordion while everybody raised aglass to salute the founding of Toussaint,Carroll Township and Ottawa County.The Celebration happens on Nov. 1st, “AllSaints Day” (Toussaint in French).

Cheerios in the Pew
Friday morning my wife and I were sitting on the couchhaving a cup of coffee together before the kids woke up forschool. Just as we had settled into our seats Rachel checkedher phone for any messages. That’s when we found outthat John Drummer had passed away. Our hearts bothsank into the couch in disbelief.On any given Sunday you could nd the Drummer fam-ily sitting in the pew awaiting the beginning of 10:30 a.m.mass at Immaculate Conception Church in Port Clinton.Rachel and I usually arrived a little after 10, with kids intow, and were always greeted by the warm smiles and kindwords of John and his family. John, a mountain of a man,towered over our three little ones. If it were anyone else,little Bert, Oliver, & Lorelei would have been scared todeath of someone with shoulders broad enough to makean NFL linebacker look small and wiry, but John alwayshad a way with the kids that made them laugh and putthem at ease.As we would enter the pew he would hold outhis palm and ask the kids “Did you bring me any Cheer-ios?” referring to the treats Rachel and I brought to helpkeep the kids quiet in church. Every time, my kids wouldlaugh and smile as they playfully denied him their pre-cious Cheerios.Personally, I didn’t know John outside of the Church. Infact, my only interaction with him, in all the years I knew him, was from sitting one row behind him at mass. Yet,when I heard the news of his passing I was deeply affect-ed and couldn’t help but shed a tear. How did someone Ihardly knew have such a profound impact on my life? Canonly a few words of kindness once a week make that muchof an impression? Absolutely!As I pondered John’s death I began to think how, all toooften, we nd ourselves going about our daily routine andpay little or no attention to those around us. Many timeswe encounter people on a regular basis and show little orno interest in them at all. We aren’t necessarily mean tothem but we may treat them with indifference. The ca-shier at the store, the clerk at the bank, or even the guy youwalk past on the way into the ofce in the morning, how much of a difference could we make in their lives, and ourown, by sharing a warm smile and a welcoming hello? Alot, I suspect. Just as much, if not more, as John Drummermade in my life just by joking with my kids about sharingtheir Cheerios in the pew. God bless you John!

Downtown Port Clinton
My wife and I have been part time residents since 1987.Starting out in Blue Teal, next to Breezy Acres and for thelast 20 years on Catawba Island. After listening and read-ing all your articles in the Beacon regarding WaterworksParks future I realize residents of Port Clinton want thingsto stay the way they have been and make no changes.Example: downtown badly needs sprucing up withpaint. Fix the sidewalks and even though the storefrontsare empty, decorate them to at least look friendly. Thetown needs a hook, something to draw people to PC. Thetall ships brought the town alive, as with the Walleye Fes-tival. The Islands do get the bulk of the business but withan attraction such as a waterpark/Hotel or maybe even apermanent ship of some type maybe visitors would stay a little longer. Put some entertainment on the streets forthe children. Maybe traveling magicians, clowns, musi-cians walking around. If none of these ideas y we haveloved PC as our second home and continue to partake inall summer events even if everything stays the same.
Thanks for listening.R. Carleton,Catawba Island 
Waterworks Park
My wife and I own a unit at Waterfronts II condomini-um and I spent all my youth summers on Ascher Beach.As an attorney I have assisted developers of residentialcondominiums, including the “expandable” type, wherethe builder retains the option to discontinue completingthe project at any time if actual sales of initial units donot justify or support constructing all the additional unitsthat had been projected.From news accounts it appears the potential park de-velopment includes residential condominiums, with con-struction of all projected buildings admittedly dependenton sufcient sales —meaning of course there is no guar-antee it will all ever be built.One news story said the developer, when asked how thecity can be sure he will build it all, answered “we will bebonded.” That no doubt refers to a payment/performancebond for any individual structure being built at any pointin time, not that all the proposed buildings are guaranteedby a bonding company to ever be built. If there is no bank or group of developers who have in place and available allthe money needed to do the entire project, please don’t doanything, unless you are willing to say out loud we needthe cash so badly we don’t have to be sure what will everhappen with the land and we will risk the project failingfor lack of buyers.Port Clinton could end up in the worst of all worlds: nocompleted project, only just a part project; and no pub-lic park-it is gone forever. If that happens, it will not beproper for the city to then say, “We had to do something.”Nothing in life is for sure, but a project being completedonly if sales support it is about as far from for sure as youcan get. Make them “show you the money”—all of it, if what ultimately will happen with the land is a critical partof your decision to sell the park. If the driving force is re-ally just to convert the park to money, then please say so.
Very truly yours,Ronald J. Mayle
