Congratulations to Fritz Below who started a new Facebook page on Monday called Port Clinton’s 1:20 Club. The purpose of the new Facebook page is to encourage folks who love Port Clinton to choose, at least once a month, to spend at least $20 inside the City limits that they had planned to spend elsewhere. By Tuesday morning he already had 583 members. AND…unlike other Port Clinton Facebook pages, negative comments are not allowed, or at least discouraged! Check it out!!!
Remember the rumors floating out there a couple of years ago about Eric Clapton buying a place in Lakeside? Now we have two more celebs supposedly buying their “getaway retreat” nearby. Rumor now has it that famous actor Robert DeNiro recently purchased a place on the Marblehead Peninsula. Also, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, John Boehner (of Cincinnati) just purchased a place on Catawba. Also, in case you need reminding, John Schaffner, the famous sailor, golfer, rock star and newspaper mogul, has lived here since 1962! And you might ask… “What is his name doing in the same sentence as Eric Clapton, Robert DeNiro and John Boehner!?”
