Goodbye Graytown Elementary


Memories on display during open house
BY ANGIE ZAM Editor Former teachers, staff and students of Graytown Elementary will gather in the school Sunday to celebrate its history before the doors are closed at the end of the year. The open house, from 2 to 4 p.m., will feature historical information about the building and Benton-Carroll-Salem School District, along with a chance to reunite, share memories and talk about the future. Thats the good part, it brings everyone together, said Lynn Vasill, alumna and 25year employee of the school. She said Though Vasill will remain with the district, she is sad to leave the school that has been such an important part of her life and says its the sense of community shell miss most. This is home so its going to be an adjustment, she said. Well see. Vasill has been working alongside a committee formed to gather items and information for Sundays open house. Eight boards of memories and historical details will be on display throughout the school in addition to yearbooks, class pictures, photo albums and a memory video set to play from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The Oak Harbor High School Jazz Band will perform at 3:30 p.m. in the auditorium. Vasill said they expect about 300 people to attend Sundays event. Guests will be invited to enjoy punch and cookies and will have the chance to order T-shirts and CDs. Joe Wank, principal at the school, said the current students arent saying much about the closure but that he and other school officials are working together to ensure a smooth transition. The students will eventually visit R.C. Waters School and Oak Harbor Middle School to ready for next year. But for this weekend, the school family will look back instead of forward.

Bolte won the award in competition with Croghan Colonial Bank. The long history of one of the oldest existing real estate businesses in Ohio has been well documented over the years. Four generations have been through the businesss management team, starting with Ann Bolte in 1936. In those days, few women worked, let alone started companies. Ann was followed by her son, Eugene, who added the insurance side of the business. He was followed by his daughter Cindy, who first joined the firm in 1980. In 2001, Cindys son Phillip joined up, and has also started a construction affiliate to the

Warm welcome goes out to birders and anglers alike


A big Ottawa County welcome goes out to two major visiting groups coming here starting this weekend. First, The Biggest Week in American Birding will attract literally thousands of bird enthusiasts to our precious marshlands and parks. We have become a Mecca for birders in North America. Also, welcome to the participants in the FLW Walleye Tournament. In fact, many of the fishermen have been here for a week or so, marking out their favorite honey holes out in Lake Erie.

Seniors celebrate support after theft


When guests arrived at the Port Clinton Senior Center last Monday for cards, they found a shocking scene. A rock had been thrown through a window in the rear of the building and the 46 LCD TV they purchased after more than a year of fundraising was gone. The incident was immediately reported to police and the seniors jumped into action. Jaunita Mills Persely, events and FUNraising chairwoman for the center, circulated a letter to the editor about the break-in. The story was picked up by a Toledo news channel and its broadcast started a course of events that swiftly brought fun and security back to the center. A 55-inch flat-screen Sanyo television was delivered to the center last week by an anonymous angel. The TV which

Corbin Carpenter of the Port Clinton Police Department, a caller reported seeing someone taking a large TV into their home in the middle of the night. That anonymous action led to an arrest. Now, thanks to another donation, the seniors can rest assured something like this wont happen again. John Smythe, president of Habitec Security in Toledo, heard about the theft from one of his employees and decided to help out. He donated a security system and one year of service. Senior center reps say they are humbled by the support.

Fireworks fund
I am writing to make a final plea to those who enjoy fireworks and the other events that take place in Port Clinton on the Fourth of July. Each year a committee of interested citizens works very hard to plan and fund events for the celebration that the entire community enjoys. The annual financial goal for these activities is $8,000-$10,000. From that amount, $8,000 covers the cost of the fireworks display in Water Works Park and the balance funds the other events that day. The deadline for the PC Area Fourth of July Committee to sign the contract for the fireworks display is this Friday, May 4. As I am writing this letter, our coffers have $6,688.54. Meaning with just hours to go we are $1,311.46 short of what we need for fireworks not to mention the Community Band Concert, ice cream social hosted by the PC Senior Center, Firecracker Cutie Contest and parade. If you, your family or business are interested in helping us reach our goal, please deliver your check to the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce Foundation, 110 Madison St., Port Clinton, OH 43452 and place the special notation FIREWORKS in the memo section of the check. The PCCOC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) established to help smaller organizations like the Fourth of July Committee meet financial records commitments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 419734-0515. A very special thanks to the committee: Mary Ann Snider, Debbie and Dennis Tester, Snip and Sharon Snider, Roseann Hickman, Judi Halstead, Kim Sedlak, Greg Pieffer and the Port Clinton Senior Center. Sincerely, Mike Snider, Chairman PC Area 4th of July Committee

Residence
I was shocked and dismayed at the article in your recent Residence 2012 insert to the Beacon and to the Huron HomeTown News that discussed Turf Tips. The article correctly notes that phospohorus is probably the least important nutrient for turf. But then it goes on to recommend a fertilizer with a N:P:K ratio of 3:1:2. This is irresponsible. Phosphorus runoff from lawns, golf courses and most importantly from farm fields is the reason that Lake Erie is experiencing the severe algal blooms. A lawn fertilizer ratio of 3:1:2 will significantly contribute to this problem. There should be zero phosphorus in fertilizer for established lawns. Responsible fertilizer companies have recognized this and now offer fertilizer with zero phosphorus; one wellknown, premium brand now offers a 30:0:4 fertilizer which is what lawns really need. I suggest that you publish a future article about the algal problem in Lake Erie and about proper lawn nutrition programs that help reduce the Lake Erie problem. This lake is one of our greatest resources and we must protect it. Bill Smith, Lakeside

Fishermans Guide to Sailing


A new boating season is about to begin. Some are fortunate to live near a lakeshore community, while others travel quite a distance to enjoy time on the water. Regardless of how you get there, you will be certain to encounter both power and sail boats sharing the lake. While some fishermen are familiar with sailboats, most are not sailors, and the concept of tacking back and forth to travel upwind looks random. Part of the hate/fear perception you hear about, is the apparent unpredictability of sailboats. It doesnt help that most sailors either talk sailing lingo or shout angrily at other boats. However, problems are eliminated virtually every time a sailor speaks to a fisherman as another sportsmen enjoying the water. Sooner or later you might encounter a sailboat race. Most fishermen are fine with racing, but sail racing is unique in not having actual lanes or a track. Since sailboats cant go directly in the direction the wind is coming from, they have to attack it in chunks. Sailboats can only move upwind by zig-zagging. Racing sailboats usually have very fine control over their direction, so the sailors feel comfortable in coming quite close to other boats. A fisherman should not be alarmed if he is anchored with his line in the water. If a fisherman is trolling in the middle of a race and becomes surrounded by sailboats, the best move is to continue slowly in a straight line instead of trying to avoid everyone by constantly changing course. Occasionally, fishermen might encounter a sailor yelling at them with rude insults and acting all hoity-toity. The best response is to ignore them or give wave and I see you; dont worry. The laugh takes it from being a condescending order, to being a joke among peers. The lake will soon be full of people in boats of all sizes and types, each looking forward to a good experience with their companions. There is no reason that all boaters cant do their part to promote the politics of good relations between power and sail. David M. Ryan Jr.

Grant helps Portage Twp enhance two cemeteries


The elected officials of Portage Township believe that it is fitting to maintain and enhance the cemeteries within the township in order to honor the memory of past generations. With the help of a $2,665 grant from the Ottawa-SanduskySeneca County Joint Solid Waste Management District, Portage Township has completed enhancements to two of the township cemeteries. An arbor was added to the existing fence at Christy Chapel Cemetery, located at the township maintenance complex on State Road. At the Shook Cemetery, located on the north side of Ohio 163 between Christy Chapel Road and Ohio 53, 84 feet of fence and an arbor were erected by the township maintenance crew. The intent of the OSS Grant is to encourage local governments, non-profit organizations and non-profit educational institutions to expand environmentally friendly activities by developing recycling programs or by purchasing materials composed of recycled products. Additional information on the Ottawa-Sandusky-Seneca County Joint Solid Waste Management District grants can be found by visiting their website at www.recycleoss.net.

AROUND OTTAWA COUNTY

The Beacon

LOCKS OF LOVE
Shelby Anderson, student at Bowling Green State University and daughter of Kassie and Eric Anderson of Port Clinton, recently got her hair cut. Normally, this wouldnt be much of a news story, but it was the second time Shelby had at least 7 inches of her hair cut off and donated to Locks of Love an organization that creates hairpieces for kids who suffer from hair loss. For more, visit www.locksoflove.org.

Heating help ends on a high note


In March, 441 households were approved for assistance from the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program compared to 367 approved in February. The program, which ended March 30, has served an estimated 2,600 households in 2012. The final tally of the number served for the 2012 heating season will be available later this month. In March, the number served in each of the WSOS counties is as follows: Ottawa County 54 households for a total of $13,950 Wood County 151 households for a total of $33,483 Sandusky County 128 households for a total of $26,206 Seneca County 108 households for a total of $18,337 Residents submitted applications until the end of March for assistance through EHEAP, so many of those applications are still being processed to determine their eligibility and the amount of assistance. Each year, from November to March, EHEAP provides one-time emergency assistance to income-eligible residents to help them maintain their heating source by paying some of the heating bills. These households receive up to $450 one time to pay electric and other utilities, and up to $750 for those who use propane and have less than a 10-day supply left in the tank. The income limits to receive assistance through this program remains at 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. This means that households with one person should earn no more than $21,780 or four-person households should have incomes of no more than $44,700. The Summer Cooling program also helps income-eligible residents with electric bills in July and August. Income eligibility is the same, however only those who have medically verified needs for cooling in their homes, and are 60 years of age and older receive assistance.

Cupcakes for the Cure


There is still time to enter the Cupcakes for the Cure competition and cupcake auction which will take place on Saturday, May 5, at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 108 Perry St., Port Clinton. Activities start at 10 a.m. with a balloon release honoring those who are currently fighting, are survivors or have been taken by breast cancer. The contest is open to the public and includes a Junior Division for ages 6-12. Contestants are asked to deliver 2 1/2 dozen standard-sized cupcakes to the K. of C. Hall by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the competition. There is no entry fee. Snacks and raffles will be available for purchase. Cupcakes for the Cure is a service project of the PC Seniors/Port Clinton Senior Center and Gerner-Wolf Walker Funeral Homes with proceeds benefitting the October 2012 Susan G. Komen 3-D (60-mile walk) via sponsorship of two area walkers. For information or to donate cash or raffle prizes in honor/memory of a pink warrior, call Juanita MillsPersely at 419-341-1080.

The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council and local art enthusiasts Cathy and Bob Adorni, long-time friends of the late Thomas Kinkade, have popped open an art gallery in downtown Port Clinton. The display, Come Share the Light, features the Adornis extensive collection of Thomas Kinkades art. The couple lived in California for 30 years before moving to Port Clinton in 2006. In 1990, the Adornis started to appreciate the talents Kinkade had to offer. They met Thom was he was 37 at an event in Van Nuys, Calif., and started collecting his art in 1995. In 1997, the Adornis met Rick Barnett, Thoms business partner and friend, and immediately formed a friendship. The Adornis relationship with Thom and Rick became a personal one, spending time with their friends and family and even traveling with them to Washington, D.C., for the presentation of Thoms Christmas painting to President George Bush at the National Christmas Tree Lighting. Stop in and see special artwork created just for the Adornis by Thom and his children; Thoms earlier artwork and listen to the fascinating stories they have to offer! Fall in love with some of the art and they might even sell it to you. The pop-up gallery, at 113 Madison St., Port Clinton, will be open for several weeks so check for hours.

Two Terra students honored at All-Ohio Reception


Two Terra State Community College students were among those recognized at the 2012 All-Ohio Academic Team Luncheon on April 26 in the Ohio Statehouse Atrium. The annual event is sponsored by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges, Phi Theta Kappa and the All-Ohio Advisory Council. Sherry Peterson, of Port Clinton, was named to the first team while Michael D. Ontko, of Oak Harbor, was selected to the third team. Both received AllOhio medallions, certificates and lapel pins. Peterson was awarded $1,000 and Ontko received $250. Receiving acknowledgement from the governor of Ohio, the OACC and Phi Theta Kappa at the State Senate epitomizes my value as a student and representative of Terra State and Phi Theta Kappa, Peterson said. Ontko agreed. It was an amazing day spent with so many good people, he said. I was very happy to hear Governor Kasich speak. Vice President for Student and Administrative Affairs Dr. Jerome Web- Peterson will graduate May 4 with an Associate of ster (left), Michael Ontko, Sherry Peterson, Terra President Dr. Marsha Applied Business in Office Administration/ExecuBordner and Vice President for Academic Affairs Lisa Jozwiak at the tive. She plans to pursue a bachelors degree in business administration with a concentration in organiStatehouse following the ceremony. zational management at Tiffin University beginning this fall. Eventually, she hopes to earn a masters degree in developmental education, possibly at Bowling Green State University. Ontko will also graduate Friday with an Associate of Applied Science in Social Work/Social Work Assistant. He plans to attend Spring Arbor University this fall and later work toward a masters degree in social work at The Ohio State University. The U.S. Army veteran hopes to build a career working closely with armed forces veterans. Both were honored to be nominated for the AllOhio distinction. Learning that I would be acknowledged on the State Senate floor as one of the top 10 students in the State of Ohio was surreal, Peterson said. I never dreamed such an honor would become a part of my story. Ontko was humbled. I was very excited and overwhelmed to think that of all the students at Terra State, someone felt so highly of me to nominate me, he said. Peterson is the mother of Kasey and Jay Peterson. Ontko and his wife, Traci, are the parents of James, Reid, William, Jessica, Rebecca and Cheyenne. Honda of America Mfg., Inc. was the event sponsor.

What should you do with a 401(k) when leaving a job


slapped with a 10% IRS tax penalty. Even worse, youll have lost a key source of your retirement income. Still, if you are leaving your employer involuntarily, and you need the money, cashing out your 401(k) is an option you may need to consider. Keep the money in your companys plan. When you leave a company, your employer may allow you to keep your money in your existing 401(k). You may want to choose this route if you like the investment choices available in your plan. However, you might be caught by surprise if the company decides to change investment options. Furthermore, some employers may charge former employees fees to maintain their 401(k) plans. Move the money into your new employers plan. If your new employer has a 401(k) and allows transfers, you could roll the money from your old plan into the new one. This might be an attractive option if you like the investment options in your new employers plan. Roll the money over to an IRA. You may find several advantages to rolling your 401(k) over to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). First, your money will still have the potential to grow on a taxdeferred basis. Second, you can invest your funds in virtually any investment you choose stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs), etc. Third, if you own more than one 401(k) account, you could find it advantageous to consolidate them into a single IRA, thereby making it easier to allocate and monitor your retirement assets. And fourth, IRAs may give you greater flexibility if you plan to pass money to your children. In fact, if your child inherits your IRA, he or she has the option of stretching withdrawals over the childs entire lifetime, rather than taking the money as a lump sum. (If you do transfer funds from your old 401(k) to an IRA, be sure to use a direct rollover to avoid the possibility of triggering unwanted taxes.) Before making any moves with your 401(k), consult with your tax and financial advisors. By looking closely at your options, and by getting professional guidance, you can make the choice thats right for you.

In the past, many people stayed at one job, or at least one company, for almost their entire working lives. When they retired, they could typically count on a pension, the value of which was based on their years of service and earnings. But today, workers can expect to hold several different jobs in their lifetime, and to a great extent, pensions have been replaced by 401(k) plans, which place much of the funding responsibility on employees. So, assuming you will change jobs at some point, and you do have a 401(k), what should you do with it? Here are your basic choices: Cash out your plan. If you cash out your plan, your company will likely pay you 80% of your account value, withholding the rest for federal taxes. And if youre younger than age 59, you may well be

Lakers top Margaretta, Rockets head into stretch have won 3 out of 4 run on 4-game win streak
OAK HARBOR HIGH SCHOOL
BY YANEEK SMITH Last weekend, Danbury rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Margaretta, 4-3, to improve to 7-9 on the season. Lucas Kennedy reached on an error before scoring on a Dalton Chapman single to tie the game at 3 before Chapman scored the winning run on a wild pitch to give the Lakers the win. Branden Burke had a fine game on the mound, allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits in seven innings of work. He struck out four batters and walked just one. Head coach Adam Steinbrick is happy with how the team has performed of later after struggling to begin the season. These guys are playing with more confidence as of late, said Steinbrick. These guys have bounced back. The pitching has been pretty solid and were getting around 9-10 hits per game as of late. Our defense has picked up from that. Were a different team from where we were earlier in the year. Those guys have just kept plugging away and I feel like were headed in the right direction. Im just proud of the guys for hanging in there. DANBURY 14 MONROEVILLE 7 The Lakers, which finished with 10 hits as a team, doubled up Monroeville, 14-7, in non-conference action last week. Danbury was led by Cory Schenk, who went 3-for-5 with four RBIs while Lucas Kennedy, who normally plays shortstop, got the win on the mound. Kennedy allowed no runs on two hits in three innings of work. DANBURY 7 E. CHRISTIAN 2 Danbury held off Emmanuel Christian to defeat the Warriors for the second time this season, defeating EC, 7-2 in Toledo Area Athletic Conference (TAAC) action. Cory Schenk got the win, improving to 5-2 on the season. He allowed two earned runs on three hits in four innings of work while striking out five and walking three. Brandon Burke came in on relief in the fifth with runners on second and third but got out of the jam without allowing a run. John Bunce had the key hit for the Lakers, driving in two runs on a single to help pace Danbury. OTTAWA HILLS 14 DANBURY 4 The Lakers took a 2-0 lead before the Green Bears rallied to go ahead 10-3 before winning, 14-4, in TAAC play. Jack Saddemi led Ottawa Hills by going 2-for-4 with three RBIs and Scott Turner got the win on the mound. DANBURY 5 ST. WENDELIN 2 Cory Schenk had two RBIs to lead Danbury in its 5-2 win over Fostoria St. Wendelin. Branden Burke helped to pace the Lakers with an RBI and a run, David Gast contributed with an RBI and Dalton Chapman scored twice and had an RBI. Schenk got the win on the mound, striking out four in five innings of work. BY YANEEK SMITH Oak Harbor scored five runs in the third inning to break the game open and take the lead for good in its 10-1 win over Edison. Brian Mallernee led the Rockets with a double and three RBIs and Phil Bryant and Cory Grotz each finished with two hits and two RBIs. Mallernee also got the win, allowing one run on three hits in five innings of work. He struck out seven and walked three to improve to 4-3 on the season. OAK HARBOR 6 PORT CLINTON 3 After Port Clinton rallied to tie the game with three runs in the top of the sixth inning, Oak Harbor responded with three of its own in the bottom half to take a 6-3 lead on its way to victory. Brian Mallernee had the key hit, driving in three runs on two-out double to give the Rockets the win. Mark Konieczny had one hit and scored three times and A.J. Cecil got the win, allowing three runs (two earned) on seven hits in seven innings of work. OAK HARBOR 16 MARGARETTA 9 In a back-and-forth game that saw Margaretta rally to tie the game three times, Oak Harbor broke an 8-8 tie with four runs in sixth inning on its way to a 16-9 win. Brian Mallernee led the team with a home run and seven RBIs and Mark Konieczny and A.J. Cecil had four RBIs apiece. Cecil got the win in relief, allowing no runs on two hits in one inning of work. OAK HARBOR 11 LAKOTA 7 Oak Harbor took the lead for good with four runs in the first inning as it defeated Lakota, 11-7, at Fifth Third Field in Toledo. Joey Mallernee and Cory Grotz drove in three runs apiece to lead the Rockets, who broke the game open with three runs in both the third and fourth innings, pushing the lead from 4-2 to 10-2. Josh Graber got the win, allowing six runs on 11 hits in 4.2 innings of work. He struck out four and walked three to improve to 1-1 on the season.

Softball
EDISON 10 OAK HARBOR 0 (5 INN.) The Chargers took control from the outset, scoring four runs in the first inning on its way to a 10-0 victory in five innings. Edisons Susan Knight pitched a perfect game in five innings. Gabby Stoll led the Chargers at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two RBIs and two runs. The Rockets are now 6-15 overall and 4-6 in the SBC. OAK HARBOR 10 PORT CLINTON 1 (6 INN.) The Rockets avenged an earlier loss to Port Clinton by defeating the Lady Skins, 10-1.

Walk on the Wild Side


205 S.E. Catawba Road Suite G Port Clinton, Ohio 43452
The second annual Walk on the Wild Side at Magee Marsh will be at 9:30 a.m. May 12. Proceeds from the walk will support our Weeds to Wildflowers project. The Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, purchased by the Ohio Division of Wildlife in August 1951, lies in some of Ohios finest remaining wetlands. The marsh complex has historically been inhabited by large numbers of waterfowl, waterbirds, shorebirds and songbirds. The primary responsibility at Magee Marsh is the development and maintenance of high quality wetland habitat for a diverse array of wetland wildlife species. Managing invasive plant species is a constant battle in the Magee Marsh wildlife area. For the past six years, volunteers have been working to reduce garlic mustard along a boardwalk. This noxious weed has taken over the area, choking out just about everything else. The work has really made a difference, and last year volunteers planted more than 900 native plants, like wild columbine and wild geranium, along the boardwalk. Not only will these plants be beautiful, they will also benefit birds and other wildlife. This year many ash trees had to be cut because of Emerald Ash Borer. There are a number of ways you can help achieve the fundraising goal of $2,500: Walk on May 12

MAGEE MARSH

Public invited to visit reopened bird center


The Sportsmens Migratory Bird Center located at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area has been reopened. The facility had been closed to the public since March due to a water leak on the second floor. Water had covered approximately 20 percent of the second floor and damaged both the mens and womens restrooms and the aquarium room on the first floor. Fortunately none of the displays were damaged by the water leak, and professional engineers have examined and repaired the building. Enlist your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to sponsor your effort to help the marsh Join an existing team of walkers or form your own team Participate as a virtual walker if you cant join us, but want to support Weeds to Wildflowers Help make our Walk on the Wild Side a success by donating your time as a volunteer Visit http://walk.birdday.org/mageemarsh to sign up today.

Power Boating Skills Course


The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Watercraft, is offering a new Power Boating Basics Course that provides novice and untrained boaters the basic skills needed to properly and safely operate a power boat. The eight-hour course is open to the public and is being offered in a three-day format, July 11-13, from 5 to 8 p.m. as well as a one-day course from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 14. The class will take place at the Sandusky Watercrafts field office located at 1407 Cleveland Road in Sandusky. Class size will be limited. The course fee is $47. A $17 non-refundable deposit must be paid upon pre registering for the course. Participants must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid drivers license and be able to show proof they have completed a boater safety education course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators. These prerequisite boating safety courses are also offered in different locations throughout the area so potential Power Boating Skills students can meet this requirement. Working in cooperation with various boating partners, the Division of Watercraft has developed its new Power Boating Skills Course that is aimed at educating boaters in the safe and proper methods of operating a power boat while at the same time reducing their likelihood of becoming involved in a boating accident. Participants will get hands-on training from certified instructors that will include how to properly launch and retrieve a boat, basic boat docking procedures and basic openwater power boat operations. Some of the student objectives the Power Boating Skills course will cover are: Proper on/off trailer launching and retrieval of a boat at a boat launch ramp On-water approach and departure from a dock procedures Man overboard drill, how to rescue a person in the water Mooring and knot-tying techniques Proper anchoring procedures On-water power boat operating basics For information on the course, go to ohiodnr.com/watercraft/. To register, call the Sandusky Field Office staff at 419-6211402 or stop in at 1407 Cleveland Road, Sandusky, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, to sign up in person.
