Cynthia Rumball of Port Clinton sent me a note this week to announce that her niece, Shaylyn (Tewers) Ford of Columbus was recently crowned “Mrs. Ohio America 2014”. She is the daughter of former Port Clinton resident Mark Tewers and granddaughter of Carolyn and the late Ron Tewers. Doesn’t she look a lot like Cynthia? She will be competing in the Mrs. America 2014 Pageant in Tucson, Arizona on August 29.
We have received several very nice commendations, along with our friends at Suburban and Metro Press on the west end of Ottawa County, for Free Community Newspaper Month. In addition to resolutions from Port Clinton City Council and the Ottawa County Commissioners, we received notification of resolutions from Ohio Legislature, compliments of State Senator Randy Gardner, and also from Ohio Governor John Kasich and Lt. Governor Mary Taylor. For over 31 years (and a lot longer for Suburban Press) The Beacon has served an important function providing timely local information to our readers, with the emphasis on positive local news.
