Ottawa County Commissioner and Coroner candidates
In Ottawa County’s contested races in the Nov. 6 General Election, Jo Ellen Regal, Mark Stahl and Steve Arndt are running to fill two County Commissioner seats. Dr. Daniel Cadigan and Dr. Jerome McTague are running for County Coroner. The Beacon asked each candidate to submit his/her reasons as to why they would make the best officeholder. Dr. McTague did not respond.
Jo Ellen Regal, Candidate for Ottawa County Commissioner
One of the main responsibilities of a county commissioner is to be the budgeting and appropriating authority for the county. As county auditor I have an understanding of the budget and the budgeting process. I believe that knowledge is needed in the commissioner’s office during difficult budget times. I also have the leadership skills needed to be an effective commissioner. As an independent thinker I am not afraid to ask the tough questions and do the necessary research to make the best decisions for the residents of Ottawa County. I would bring a common sense management style to the office. A commissioner also needs to be a good listener. I believe it is important to communicate effectively with the residents of the county REGAL as well as the other elected officials, department heads and employees of the county. I believe that better decisions are made if you are willing to talk about and listen to different ideas even if they are not the same as yours. Your vote on November 6th will bring fiscal experience, proven leadership, independent thinking, trust and integrity to the county commissioner’s office.
Coroner candidate Cadigan
I believe I am the best candidate for Ottawa County Coroner. The Coroner’s duties include responding to requests for attendance in Coroner’s cases, and to timely complete and file documents. As a family physician, I have been available when called by Ottawa County residents for 17 years. I will continue to be available. I live and work in the county and can attend a scene when requested. Not all medical specialties can do so in a timely fashion. I have a record of public service within Ottawa County, having served as Riverview Nursing Home Subacute Medical Director, Ottawa County Health Department Well Child Clinic physician, Ottawa County Board of Health member, Ottawa County Health Needs Assessment Committee member, Immaculate Conception School Advisory Council President, and Magruder Hospital CADIGAN Medical Staff President. I will continue that record of service. I will ensure that we again have access to a Deputy Coroner, which has been lacking in 2012. Ottawa County residents are my patients, neighbors, and friends, and I will ensure that they and their families have the same dignity and respect in death as they do in life by responding to the family’s needs in a timely and consistent fashion.
Why am I the best candidate for County Commissioner?
A County Commissioner does more than manage a office, we manage a government. Because our primary responsibility is that of the appropriating authority we must possess a good working knowledge of all of the county’s operations and responsibilities. County government serves at the pleasure of the state, implementing their programs, policies and Constitutional requirements. Having said that it takes years to fully understand the breath of county government. Serving in leadership positions in the County Commissioners Association of Ohio on various committees such as Jobs and Economic Development and Infrastructure, Public Safety and Criminal Justice, Human Serves and Workforce Development and various State Task Forces has given me the working knowledge and understanding of the legal requirements in these critical areas. ARNDT The past four years have been some of the most economically challenging times for Federal and State governments but it becomes acutely apparent at the delivery point, County government. Because those pressures remain, my 24 years of knowledge and proven ability to manage our more than $100 million dollar operations will prove to be invaluable in preserving the health, safety and welfare of our county.
Reid appointed County Recorder
The Ottawa County Commissioners have appointed Veronica Reid as Ottawa County Recorder. Reid fills the office that became vacant on Oct. 31 with the retirement of Virginia Park. Reid, a resident of Catawba and graduate of Wichita State University, is experienced in finance, payroll and human resources. Reid has worked for 21 years in payroll and finance, with Safelite Glass Corporation, Sterling Commerce and most recently with Abercrombie and Fitch of New Albany, OH. The Ottawa County Democratic Party Central Committee will meet on Nov. 8 to make the interim appointment for County Recorder. Park is on the ballot for the General Election on Nov. 6.
I currently serve as your county commissioner.
I am seeking re-election to the office of Ottawa County Commissioner in the November 6, 2012, election. Four years ago, I campaigned on the promise to provide government leadership and financial responsibility through effective and efficient management of the budget of Ottawa County. As the economy continues to be soft, we budgeted to make Ottawa County financially stronger. We balanced the budget and increased our cash reserves without seriously effecting public services. We did this by partnering with all stakeholders and this success was built on solutions offered by all stakeholders. We continue to look for ways to STAHL streamline our operations and have developed partnerships with all stakeholders to provide solutions to cost containment. The budgetary crisis at the federal and state levels present future financial challenges for Ottawa County. As their present financial commitment to us decreases, the demand for services remains. We will continue to budget for the financial challenges that our county will experience in the future. Together, we can ensure Ottawa County’s success for the future. My education, training and experience in accounting and finance support this commitment. My formal education includes a dual Bachelor of Business Degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of Toledo, College of Business Administration. As your commissioner, I continue to deliver leadership and the commitment to make decisions with the residents of Ottawa County in mind. Your vote is a precious gift and I ask for your vote on November 6th to continue to service our county as your County Commissioner.
Democratic Central Committee meeting open to the public
The Ottawa County Democratic Party Central Committee will meet on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the activities room of the Riverview Care Center (Ohio 163 between Oak Harbor and Port Clinton) to vote on interim appointments to the Ottawa County Recorder position and the Ottawa County Clerk of Courts position. This will be an open meeting and members of the public are invited to attend. Only members of the Ottawa County Democratic Party Central Committee may vote on these appointments. These appointments are necessary because of the recently announced resignation of the Ottawa County Clerk of Courts Jennifer Wilkins and the announcement that the Ottawa County Recorder Ginny Park will be filing with PERS for retirement. Both announcements are effective October 31, 2012. Contact Dan Laity with any questions at 419-332-9615.
Board of Elections to test voting equipment
Ottawa County Board of Elections will conduct the public test of voting equipment on Monday, Nov. 5, beginning at 10 a.m. The test will be held at the Board of Elections at 8444 W. Ohio 163, Oak Harbor, in the Veterans Memorial Building.

Please vote! It’s not your right. It’s your privilege.
Next Tuesday is Election Day. We have a number of important local races as well as several State Issues. But for most of us political junkies, it’s all about the Presidential race and the US Senate Race. As you know, The Beacon does not endorse candidates…never have. This much I think I can say, the last four years have been extremely difficult, not just in Ottawa County, but everywhere. Small businesses, including The Beacon, are getting squeezed. Some may not survive. Four times in my lifetime I have seen income tax rate cuts stimulate the economy and actually generate MORE revenue for the federal government. The first time it happened it was proposed by John Kennedy. The second time it was by Ronald Reagan. The third time was 10 years ago under George Bush. They always worked. I fear for America’s future if we continue down the current path. That’s all I want to say, except please vote next Tuesday. It is not your right. It is your privilege.
I had a great time serving as a judge for the Port Clinton Rotary Pizza Challenge last week. Congratulations to the winners… Bruno’s had the Best Pepperoni Pizza, and Papa Jimmie’s had the Best Specialty Pizza. Papa Jimmies also took first place in the People’s Choice award, with Cameo taking second and Sloopy’s third. And the best part, all of the dollars raised go to the many good works that Rotary does in the community.

Voters of Ottawa County, When making an informed political decision I feel it is best to consider the RECORD of a candidate. Mark Stahl and Steve Arndt have RECORDS to evaluate as Ottawa County Commissioners. Their RECORDS include an 18% cut in spending without a reduction in critical services and without furloughs, widespread layoffs or reduced work weeks. They have fiscal management skills to establish priorities that best serve the citizens of Ottawa County and they have a history of prudent spending. With the continuing uncertainty of our economy I feel it is best to continue our leadership in the commissioner’s positions with the proven RECORDS of Mark Stahl and Steve Arndt. Sincerely, Pizza Challenge judges Pizza Challenge The Rotary Club of Port Clinton would like to thank everyone who came out to join us at our Annual Rotary Pizza Challenge on Tuesday, Oct. 23.

CASA and United Way Ottawa County Court Appointed Special Advocates, CASA, is a group of highly trained volunteers that work with the children in Ottawa County involved with the Court system. These volunteers are the voice of the child in the court room and are charged with advocating for the best interest of the child at all times. These volunteers work countless hours interviewing families, teachers, medical professionals and others that are involved in the life of the child. They also travel long distances to have face to face time with these children that can be in foster care and treatment centers that are more than two hours from Ottawa County. These volunteers work with children in many difficult situations such as neglect, abuse, truancy, and difficult custody issues. These are the most vulnerable children in our county. The United Way in Ottawa County provides significant funding for our program. This funding allows us to provide training and other resources to the volunteers and allows them to have the most up to date resources at their fingertips. Last year, CASA served 86 children at a cost of just over $800 per child. Research has shown that children represented by a CASA volunteer are much less likely to age out of foster care and are able to be In a safe stable environment sooner than their counterparts. Fifty percent of children that age out of foster care are homeless or incarcerated within two years of leaving foster care. Girls that age out have a 76% pregnancy rate before the age of 21. The United Way funding allows us to have a positive impact on the lives of these children to increase their chances of becoming productive adults and responsible citizens. Please consider these children when you are asked to support the United Way! Connie S. Cornett Executive Director

Magruder Hospital Employees Flip Pancakes for Funds
At the Harvest Festival this year in downtown Port Clinton, Magruder Hospital em$ $ ployees hosted a pancake breakfast and are donating all of the funds they raised toward the hospital’s oncology renovation. ( VA I BLE A T TH E BO X O FFI A LA CE) “We have been doing this breakfast for 4 years now. In the past we have donated to the American Cancer Society, but decided we wanted the money to stay right here in the community. None of us could think of a better benefactor than Magruder. We are designating the funds to go toward the hospital’s oncology clinic renovation which is scheduled to start soon,” says Jody Bacak who is a nurse at Magruder. She and her husband Don and fellow employee Chris Campbell were the main organizers. The star pancake flipper this year was Dr. Sandy McLean, a Magruder Family Physician. “He even made Mickey Mouse pancakes for the kids,” laughs Bacak. “He flipped a lot of pancakes that morning.” Over the years, Dr. Steven Jackson, a Magruder Family Physician, has volunteered his time to flip the pancakes.

Citizens of Ottawa County,
AROUND OTTAWA COUNTY
There is a very important question to consider when casting your vote for Ottawa County Commissioner. Why are the candidates running? Mark Stahl and Steve Arndt are clearly running to continue the successful work of their previous term. Jodie Regal, if elected, will take a $13,000 pay cut from her current position as Auditor. However Jodie will be eligible to retire from that position, double-dip in the state pension fund, and allow her party to appoint her replacement for the next two years. Hmmmm. While Jodie may be free to personally benefit from a broken system, I prefer to support Mark and Steve who put personal service over personal gain. Sincerely,
SUBMITTED BY JOHN STARCHER, PRESIDENT PRO TEM, VILLAGE COUNCIL It’s hard to believe the Presidential Election is just around the corner. And it can’t get here soon enough. It seems like this election season is just about the worst ever. I can’t remember an election so divisive as this one. Lifelong friends are becoming enemies; “unfriending” each other on Facebook because of differences in political opinions; refusing to speak to each other on the street, and even more bizarre actions – it’s crazy. Not to wish my life away, but November 7th cannot get here quickly enough. In the midst of all this vitriol, I was very blessed this past week to witness a contrasting set of behaviors. I was privileged to watch our community come together in support of our own Jackie Bird as she mourned the loss of her brother Tom. Tom’s memorial service was beautiful. The church was packed, and Denny Bird delivered a eulogy that resulted in more than a few tears. Also more than a few laughs, in typical Denny Bird fashion. After the service, we all went and stood in the cold rain for the graveside ceremony. The thermometer had topped 80 a mere twentyfour hours prior, so this was a stunning contrast of weather as we huddled together in the bone-chilling rain to offer Tom one final farewell. After the ceremony we gathered in the welcoming comfort of St. Joseph Church basement, and broke bread together as a community. I was warmed – not only by the delicious food, but also by the comfort of being reminded once again what a wonderful area in which we live. It was a bittersweet combination of sadness over the loss of Tom, and appreciation of my community. This town is special, and it is the people here who make it that way - people who always come together in time of need to help and support each other, and it’s beautiful. If you are a resident of the Village, your Village Council works pretty hard to support you as well. In order for us to continue to do our jobs effectively, we need a little help from you, though. When you enter the voting booth next week, you will be asked to approve a replacement 2-mil property tax levy. I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to figure out how I was going to “sell” this to you via this article. I have decided to just to give it to you straight, present the facts, let you decide, and hope for your support. The residents of the Village of Marblehead approved a 2-mil levy sometime in the mid-to-late sixties. It generated around $14,000 per year at the time, and the money went into the general fund to help with everyday expenses. It was not a continuing levy, so it had to be renewed every five years. The Village residents have supported its renewal on a regular basis. Taxes are complicated things, and can be very hard to understand. To put it simply, a tax levy generates a fixed dollar amount of revenue each year, based on the tax valuation of the area at the time of passage of the tax. When property values escalate, each individual’s contribution to the overall levy amount can actually get smaller. In 2003, your Village Council asked for your approval of a replacement levy. The Village’s finances were in pretty rough shape at the time. The new levy was still 2-mils, but replacement would yield around $120,000 annually, based on the tax valuations of property in the Village at the time. Thankfully the levy was approved by the voters, and the Village saw an immediate improvement of its financial health. In 2008 we asked you to renew the levy, and you were kind enough to do so. The levy continued generating around $120,000 each year because the revenues were still based on the 2003 tax valuation. This year, we are asking to once again replace the levy. If you agree to do so, the levy will generate a little over $200,000 each year. “Why do you need more money?” you may ask. It’s simple. Things keep getting more expensive. The Village faces the same challenges that all businesses do: rising insurance premiums, higher utility costs, fuel prices, labor costs, and even office supplies keep getting more expensive every year. Because we are a government entity, we are required by law to have a balanced budget. (Insert joke of choice about the federal deficit here, please. The Fed plays by a completely different set of rules) Along with rising costs, we are staring down some potential losses in other areas of income. Local Government Funds – money we get from the State of Ohio – are, and have been on the chopping block for the past several years at the state level. To date we have not seen a major decrease, but the threat hangs constantly and ominously over our heads each year like the sword of Damocles. Submerged land lease revenues may substantially decrease, or disappear altogether as the courts sort out the waterfront property ownership issue. Those two items alone have accounted for $40,000 to $50,000 of our annual monies received each year for the past five years. This year, together, they have generated just $26,000 so far – a good example of what an unpredictable source of money they can be. We have tried our best to be good stewards of your money, and I think overall we’ve done a pretty good job. Drive through our town and you’ll see plenty of evidence of the work we’ve done with it – the improvements at Radar Park (the rear portion of the building will house all Village records by the end of next year) James Park looks as good or better than ever; the ambitious road paving projects undertaken in the past five years; the new fence at the Village cemetery; snow plows; a new backhoe; late model police cruisers, and even the maintenance and upkeep of our buildings. We have also worked very hard to bring our salary levels up to par with similar job positions in our surrounding areas. I’ll be honest – our wages were a joke for a very long time. I’m actually amazed sometimes at the high level of quality of many of the employees we maintained over the years. I was also never shocked to see a good employee leave for a similar job elsewhere that paid much better. We have slowly been upgrading pay scales over the past several years to become more competitive, and I think it shows in our current employee retention rates. We’re not quite there yet, but we are certainly on the right path. We have quite a few projects on our wish list, and one of the biggest is to finally repair Alexander Pike. We’re still waiting on a long-range plan decision for a potential water line installation on this road, but we are anxious to finally make this much-needed improvement. Your approval of the replacement levy will help us to get where we want to be, and where we need to be financially. It will help us to maintain what we feel is an excellent level of service to our community. As the chairman of the village finance committee, I welcome your questions. As the President Pro-Tem of Council, I encourage your support of this levy. And here’s the best part: if the tax valuation of your property hasn’t changed, then the amount you contribute towards this levy won’t change. Replacing the levy simply allows us to have the benefit of all the new or improved properties in the Village paying their fair share. Please help us to continue serving you by supporting the levy.
And now the bad news. Bad news for all worthy candidates, all voters and all residents of Ottawa County. With no legitimate tools at his side, Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern, himself a candidate for State Representative of Erie County, has again sprung a “trap” to ensnare and block Mark Stahl from a possible re-election as Commissioner of Ottawa County, Using his typical underhanded tactics, Redfern, the Chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party waited until the eleventh house to accuse Mark Stahl of improper behavior and misconduct. He is using last minute tactics to spread what he thinks is “dirt” on Commissioner Mark Stahl, a four-year veteran Ottawa Commissioner who is seeking re-election to this important office. Using funds of the non-profit Ohio Democratic Party, Redfern created a two sided 8”x11” card complete with mark’s photo, photos depicting Mark’s family and slanderous accusations that Mark hiked the sales tax to take millions of dollars from Ottawa County’s families all the while “using Ottawa County’s resources to increase profits for his personal insurance business.” Redfern used a photo-shopped copy of Mark Stahl holding up a bogus “headline” of the News Herald saying “Stahl has been working on personal business from his county office.” This card was addressed and delivered to Stahl’s young daughter at their home in Williston and was sent to countless homes throughout Ottawa County. It was recently reported in the News Herald that a law suit involving Mark’s wife who is the owner/operator of her own insurance company, suddenly being sued by a former associate. The suit alleged that Mark Stahl is an officer or employee of Ms. Stahl, and her company. Mr. Stahl is not an insurance salesman. When not at his commissioner position, Mark Stahl works for some small businesses in accounting and bookkeeping. Mark is a fifteen-year Firefighter/Instructor with a local volunteer fire department in Williston. He has never been in insurance business and is a well-respected member of the community. He holds the rank of Captain in the Williston Area Fire Department. Mr. Redfen has a track record of last-minute sabotage including Photo-shopping and blanketing Ottawa County with similar flyers of false copy right before an election. Former Mayor Debbie-Hymore Tester lost her bid for re-election as Mayor of Port Clinton last year. Like his flyer on mark Stahl, Redfern’s flyer about Debbie Hymore-Tester bore his name and that of the Ohio Democratic Party. Redfern’s bogus flyer was mailed to all Port Clinton residents just three days before the election. Like this recent flyer to the Stahl family, Redfern’s name was on the corner of an 8’x11’ flyer berating Hymore-Tester and fabricating her standing on some labor issues... complete with a photo-shopped copy of a photo of her making a finger to her lips “shhhh” hand gesture as though she had a secret. So, Mr. Redfern, with this latest stunt and outlandish conduct, you have finally been caught with your hand in the cookie jar. If you can’t play by the rules and obey the laws, grow up or get out of the game. The voters of Ottawa County are tired of your shenanigans and dealing from the bottom of the deck. Democrats, like republicans, are good, honest people who only ask that those chosen to serve the citizens of Ottawa Count you so eagerly, effectively, and honestly. If you are unwilling or unable to do this, these citizens will seek and find those that will.

Legends of the Celtic Harp
New Port Clinton Middle School is open
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, cheers from the students were heard when Mr. Pat Adkins, Superintendent of Schools, was hoisted above the crowd on a scissor lift to ask students at Port Clinton Middle School, “Are you ready to see the coolest school building in all of Ohio?” The students cheered. “Are you ready to see the most technologically focused new school building?” The new school building is designed especially for middle school education with classrooms grouped by fleets or grade levels. There are 15 full size classrooms and three science classrooms with larger spaces dedicated for life skills, modular technology & production labs, band, choir, and art. Walls of the classrooms can be opened to create large learning spaces for interdisciplinary lessons. Technology is evident with wi-fi throughout the building, dual touch Smart Boards in every classroom and a media center with expansive windows to enhance availability of natural light. Inside the main entrance is a large commons area with rear projection screen message board. Energy efficiency is a primary focus of the new school as Port Clinton Middle School has received the “Designed to Earn the Energy Star” designation from the U.S. EPA and is on track to receive at least LEED Silver Certification. The community is invited to attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Community Open House on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to noon. Adkins continued “Our community believed so much in what we do, they supported these new school buildings. We are very grateful and can’t wait for them to see the new Port Clinton Middle School.”

Underwood Pavilion dedicated
The Underwood Pavillion in Lakeview Park, Port Clinton, was dedicated on Oct. 27, Make a Difference Day. Underwood Pavilion is in honor of Bob Underwood, Port Clinton restaurateur and one of the founders of The Friends of Port Clinton Parks. After a welcome by Dave Mehl, treasurer of The Friends of Port Clinton Parks, Linda Hartlaub reminisced about Underwood’s many contributions to the community, from the people he employed in his restaurant to those that he fed when they could not afford to pay, to his dedication to Lakeview Park. Port Clinton Mayor Vincent Leone shared that he appreciated that it was appropriate the dedication was on Make A Difference Day, with thanks “ for all that Bob Underwood gave to the community and for all the volunteers.” About the simple ceremony, Lisa Underwood, Bob’s daughter-in-law said, “Bob would not have liked the fuss, but he would have been pleased to be a part of the park. He will continue to look over things.”

Medicare open enrollment comparisons and precautions
Medicare open enrollment gives beneficiaries the chance to review their health and prescription drug coverage for the coming year. Changes can be made between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7. To stay with the same coverage, nothing needs to be done. Although Medicare scams occur yearround, they dramatically spike in the weeks leading up to and through the annual window for participants to make changes to their health and prescription coverage. The easiest step to avoid a Medicare scam is to never reveal the Medicare card number (the same as a Social Security number), or other personal health and financial information to anyone who’s not a bona fide member of a health care team. What to know: If you’re really entitled to a refund, a check will be sent directly to you. You won’t have to “prove” or provide anything. If you get Social Security, Uncle Sam already has your direct-deposit account on file, so Medicare wouldn’t ask for it. Posers galore. In seeking your personal information, crooks may also claim to be from state or local health agencies, doctor’s offices or hospitals, or an official-sounding but phony organization such as the National Medical Office. And they may try to trick you by manipulating your caller ID screen. What to know: Never trust caller ID. Scammers can easily make it display whatever identity and phone number they choose, thanks to “spoofing” products for sale on the Internet. Also, don’t be taken in if callers have personal info about you: Fraudsters have been known to contact Medicare patients and accurately give the names and addresses of their doctors. It’s unclear how they got the information. If you think a call may be genuine, hang up, look up the agency’s number yourself and call it back. For Medicare, it’s 800-6334227. Senior Resources will not call you to make an appointment to review your Part D comparison. They take appointments by telephone from the clients. If you receive a call from anyone saying they are from a County Agency and want to make an appointment with you, gather as much information as possible from the caller. Do not give any personal information including your address. Call Senior Resources so we they can look into the company to make sure they are legit. For more information, or to set up an appointment for a Part D comparison with Senior Resources, contact Dianne at 877898-6459 or 419-898-6459.
There are several open enrollment scams:
New card cons. In phone calls and occasionally emails or front-door visits, you’re told that Medicare is issuing new cards, and to get yours, you need to provide identifying information such as your Medicare number, birth date or even financial account numbers. Identity theft is the real goal. What to know: Medicare isn’t issuing new cards and its employees don’t contact participants through unsolicited calls, emails or visits. They won’t ask for personal identifiers unless you contact the agency yourself. Refund rip-offs. Scammers claim you’re entitled to money back because of “changes” or “enhancements” by Medicare or private insurers, or because of purported lawsuits or actions by government agencies. In these schemes, the goal is to get not only your Medicare number, but your bank account information for a supposed direct deposit.
EMPOWERMENT DRUM CIRCLE AT OTTERBEIN
Otterbein North Shore recently facilitated an empowerment drum circle for members of a Red Hat group. Members of the group from Oak Harbor are Ann Loehtzki, Linda Hartigan, Diana Sorg and Julie Weyandt and from Fremont Beth Witt. Witt said, “Thanks for the wonderful drumming circle experience. It was unique, intriguing, fun and exhilarating! Let me know if you decide to offer this on a monthly basis. I’m sure we could fill the room with drumbeats!” Ottawa County is truly blessed with our dynamic duo. While most of the counties in Ohio have not managed their budgets to adjust to the failing economic times and have therefore budget crises have occurred throughout the state.
Re-Elect Stahl and Arndt
Unlike many of our neighboring counties, they did not cut back services, just ask your neighbors!
Stahl and Arndt have cut our budget by 18% or almost $3 million dollars. This was accomplished through cost savings and cost avoidance measures, implementing a hiring freeze, sharing of personnel and establishing sound funding practices.
How did they do this with our economy? Look at these amazing figures... Ottawa County has lost 2 million in lost interest earnings, another million from reduced real estate transfers, Again, just amazing work guys. Arndt and Stahl have 40 years of government experience and 67 years of business experience and 67 years of business experience. Folks, we just can’t afford to lose that vital experience.

PELICANS ON WEST HARBOR
In late October Angela and Randy Long of Catawba were at Hidden Harbor Marina and were amazed to see pelicans on West Harbor. Angela reported, “It was fantastic! We are avid bird watchers, and never thought we would see pelicans here!”
It’s election season once again and its politics as usual in Ottawa County. I read the article in The Beacon regarding the resignation of the County Recorder who also asks to be re-appointed in the interim and is running unopposed for another four years starting in January. Ms. Park cites a revision in State Law as her reason for taking this action, but isn’t this something that has been going on for the last several years? Friends...this is called “Double Dipping”! What is Double Dipping? It is when an individual on the public payroll resigns from a position to collect a pension or retirement fund, while still getting paid on the public payroll...getting paid twice for the same amount of work! Perhaps the reason that politics in Ottawa County is so apathetic is because we have come to tolerate these issues and accept less than we deserve. If Auditor JoEllen Regal is elected County Commissioner, that leaves a vacancy in the Auditor’s office. Why is she taking a $13,000 per year salary reduction? If she resigns and chooses to “Double Dip” her personal gain is $176,000 over four years not including benefits. If Treasurer Bob Hille is appointed to County Administrator, which appears likely, that not only leaves a vacancy in the Treasurer’s office, it allows the Treasurer to resign his old post, collect the pension there, and assume the highest paying job in the Courthouse. All of the vacant positions would then be filled by the Ottawa County Democratic Central Committee. All of this is perfectly legal…but is it old fashioned “Patronage” and is it in the best interests of the people of Ottawa County? Double Dipping is certainly not a new issue in Ottawa County. As Ms. Park pointed out, many public officials are doing it across the State. Is it better for us to keep “experienced” elected officials and tolerate paying them twice? Yes, the same thing can happen in the private sector, but it is much more pervasive in the public sector, where you and I are paying for it. There have been many local instances of Double Dipping previously in Ottawa County, some resulting in cost savings to the taxpayers. I guess we have to judge every instance on its individual merit, but isn’t there a pattern here? Is this all part of a grand master plan orchestrated by the Ottawa County Democratic Party? Are the voters in Ottawa County victims or participants in these schemes? I just don’t happen to believe that it is in the best interest of the people of Ottawa County to close their eyes, hold their collective noses and mark their ballots knowing what they know…or should know.

Community Thanksgiving meal needs volunteers and donations
The Free community feast is scheduled for Thanksgiving Day. For the 22nd year on Thanksgiving Day residents of the Port Clinton area are invited for a turkey dinner at Trinity United Methodist Church, corner of Adams and 2nd Streets, from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. To celebrate the holiday, volunteers and committee members create a festive atmosphere and prepare a buffet of traditional foods for all to enjoy. The committee continues to invite new volunteers, as well as those who have assisted in past years, to help in the Fellowship Hall. There has been a turnover of established volunteers and as a result the committee especially needs help this year. Volunteers work in the kitchen and in the dining hall overseeing table service, greeting, coordinating deliveries, food preparation and clean up. This event is made possible through monetary and food donations from the community and by the time given by local volunteers and committee members. All are welcome to the free Thanksgiving Feast. The committee encourages area residents to bring families and friends, to come alone and sit with our groups and join in celebrating this important time of togetherness. Reservations are never required. To volunteer, to donate food (hams, turkeys, canned sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, carrots are needed), or for more information call Ginna Fall by Friday, Nov. 16 at 419.967.0185. Every year, volunteers deliver meals to area shut ins. If you know a shut-in who would enjoy a hot turkey meal for Thanksgiving, please contact Ginna Fall by Tuesday, Nov.20, at 419-967-0185. Editor, Ottawa County has benefited from the leadership of two very competent and professional individuals, Mark Stahl and Steve Arndt. Both of these gentlemen have served well, and deserve to be returned to their positions as County Commissioners. The County has fared well through the past several years and its fiscal condition is to be envied. Few Government agencies can make that statement as we hear horror stories of bankruptcies and unpaid obligations. The success Ottawa County has enjoyed is directly attributed to the leadership of the County Commissioners, two of which are Mr. Stahl and Mr. Arndt. I would encourage everyone to vote for these two highly qualified gentlemen. Sincerely, William Quayle 4204 E. Stonehenge Port Clinton, Ohio 43452

yards for a touchdown and, after forcing a punt, Smith scored from 49 yards out. In all, Smith finished with 21 carries for 403 yards and four touchdowns. After winning five games in each of the last two seasons, the Redskins struggled mightily this year as they won just one game, a 35-14 victory over Woodmore in the season opener. The primary reasons for Port Clinton’s struggles this season came down to two key factors: (1) injuries and (2) bad fortune. The ‘Skins suffered a number of injuries, many of them to key players. And to make matters worse, the breaks certainly were with the opposition this season. In games against Edison and Margaretta, Port Clinton suffered tough breaks. A muffed punt cost the ‘Skins dearly and changed the fortunes for the worse in their loss to the Chargers and, in the loss to the Polar Bears, a botched snap on a Margaretta punt midway thru the fourth quarter turned out to be a blessing in disguise as they were able to convert on the fourth-down play before taking the lead for good.

Port Clinton finishes season with loss to Clyde
BY YANEEK SMITH It just wasn’t a good night for the Port Clinton Redskins last Friday. In their final game of the season, Port Clinton lost, 74-6, to Clyde to finish their season with a 1-9 overall record and an 0-7 mark in the Sandusky Bay Conference. However, in the early going, things weren’t as bad as they looked. The Redskins’ first two drives were substantial, but both came away with nothing as there were missed opportunities. The first drive, which began at the 30-yard-line, lasted 10 plays and encompassed 54 yards before the Fliers came up with a critical stop. On its following drive, Port Clinton marched 47 yards into Clyde territory before Flier safety Paul Cullen came up with a key interception. Following both possession, Clyde responded with scoring drives of their own, both on touchdown runs by Brad Smith, to go ahead 14-0. In the second quarter, the Fliers built their lead to 34-0, scoring on a 8-yard run by Damian Coburn. Coburn then returned an interception 88

Oak Harbor falls short in its quest to win an SBC title
BY YANEEK SMITH Momentum swings often determine the outcome of a hard-fought game. In Oak Harbor’s game last Friday against Perkins, a crucial play turned the game in the Pirates’ favor before they took control in their 39-14 victory over the Rockets. With a 14-7 lead and 35 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Perkins faced a fourth-and-6 at the Oak Harbor 25-yardline. Quarterback Brandon Smith dropped back and looked downfield but could not find a receiver. After surveying the field, he threw the ball into the end zone for wide receiver Dale Irby, who was covered by Rockets safety Jamie Balboa. The pass, which appeared to be uncatchable, fell incomplete, but a late flag was thrown, indicating a pass interference call on the Rockets. The penalty gave the Pirates a first down at the Oak Harbor 12 and, on the very next play, Smith hit running back Mitch Benkey in the flat for a touchdown that made it 20-7. After getting the ball to start the third quarter, the Rockets advanced to midfield before fumbling it away to Perkins. The Pirates responded, advancing to the Oak Harbor 21, scoring on fourth-and-7 when Smith ran it in for a touchdown to push the lead to 26-7. On the play, he dropped back to pass, could not find anyone open before running it up the middle and cutting to the left and scoring. From that point forward, the Rockets were never able to seriously threaten. Ultimately, it was Perkins’ rushing attack that dictated the pace of the game. The Pirates rushed 45 times for 263 yards and were able to consistently move the ball downfield.

Judge Hany is featured speaker at conference
Frederick (Fritz) C. Hany II, Judge of the Ottawa County Municipal Court, was one of the featured speakers at an Ohio Judicial College conference held in Columbus. Judge Hany addressed more than 90 Municipal Court Clerks from around Ohio. Judge Hany and Staff Attorney Barbara Petersen coauthored and produced the materials presented to the Clerks as a result of his being chosen to be a member of the faculty of the Ohio Judicial College. Judge Hany’s presentation reviewed current Ohio civil, criminal and traffic rules of procedure that affect not only the Ottawa County Municipal Court, but all Municipal Courts in Ohio. Judge Hany commented, “I was honored to be chosen by the Ohio Judicial College to prepare and present my course material to the Municipal Court Clerks. Not only was I able to share with those in attendance my years of experience as Judge of the Ottawa County Municipal Court, but I also gained valuable information from listening to the others’ experiences.” Judge Hany has served in the Ottawa County Municipal Court since 1991, having been elected to the position four times. Judge Hany and his wife Susan (Loeffler) reside in Oak Harbor with their two daughters. The Ohio Judicial College is the principal educational arm of the Ohio Supreme Court. Its primary function is to provide educational programs for all Ohio Judges. Ohio Judges are required to complete continuing legal education courses on an annual basis. They can fulfill these requirements by either attending the courses or voluntarily teaching them. Judge Hany fulfills his legal education requirements by both instructing and attending these courses.

“Scary” Investment Moves to Avoid
A presidential election is almost upon us. But if you have young children or grandchildren, you know what’s really important this week is Butterfingers, not ballots, and Pop Rocks, not the popular vote. Yes, it’s Halloween time again, which means you’ll see plenty of witches and vampires scurrying around. You’ll no doubt find these characters more amusing than frightening, but you don’t have to look far to find things that are a bit more alarming — such as these scary investment moves: • Paying too much attention to the headlines — Some headlines may seem unnerving, but don’t abandon your investment strategy just because the news of the day appears grim. • Chasing “hot” investments — You can get “hot” investment tips from the talking heads on television, your next-door neighbor or just about anybody. But even if the tip was accurate at one point, by the time you get to a “hot” investment, it may already be cooling down. And, even more importantly, it simply may not be appropriate for your individual risk tolerance and goals. • Ignoring different types of investment risk — Most investors are aware of the risk of losing principal when investing in stocks. But if you shun stocks totally in favor of perceived “risk-free” investments, you’d be making a mistake because all investments carry some type of risk. For example, with fixed-income investments, including CDs and bonds, one risk you will encounter is inflation risk — the risk that your investment will provide you with returns that won’t even keep up with inflation and will, therefore, result in a loss of purchasing power over time. Another risk you will incur is interest-rate risk — the risk that new bonds will be issued at higher rates, driving down the price of your bonds. Bonds also carry the risk of default, though you can reduce this risk by sticking with bonds that receive the highest ratings from independent rating agencies. • Failing to diversify — If you only own one type of investment, and a market downturn affects that particular asset class, your portfolio could take a big hit. But by spreading your dollars among an array of vehicles, such as stocks, bonds and government securities, you can reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification cannot guarantee profits or protect against loss.) • Focusing on the short term — If you concentrate too much on short-term results, you may react to a piece of bad news, or to a period of extreme price gyrations, by making investment moves that are counterproductive to your goals. Furthermore, if you’re constantly seeking to instantaneously turn around losses, you’ll likely rack up fees, commissions and possibly taxes. Avoid all these hassles by keeping your eyes on the future and sticking to a long-term, personalized strategy. You can’t always make the perfect investment choices. But by steering clear of the “scary” moves described above, you can work toward your long-term goals and hopefully avoid some of the more fearsome results. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.
