Finding Wiley in Las Vegas, Nevada

I found Wiley!!! No, not Wylie Walleye, Larry Wiley, the star running back of the undefeated Port Clinton football team of 1962. I had a Publishers Business Summit in Las Vegas last Saturday. I couldn’t get a flight out until late Sunday, so I made arrangements to spend some time with Larry Wiley who lives in Vegas with his lovely wife Catherine (Coleman) who graduated from PCHS in 1965. They hope to come “home” in July for the Class of 1963’s 50 year reunion and a special reunion of the ’62 football team in September. I learned all about the football teams of the early 1960’s. Larry picked me up at the hotel and took me to his home. Catherine, an avid LA Laker fan, also served me a steak dinner topped off by a delicious slice of Apple Pie. They couldn’t have been more hospitable. I can tell you, Larry still can’t get over the only blemish on the record of that team, a 6-6 tie with Perrysburg that cost them a perfect season and the outright Northern Lakes League championship.

Photos of old Port Clinton

Back by popular request, Chuck Grindstaff will present his program on old Port Clinton, using glass slides donated to the Ottawa County Museum by Rudy Dracka.  The audience will be challenged to identify the locations of photographs taken around 1915, followed by recent photos taken from the same vantage point as those by the early photographer.  Although the program will use digitized copies of the slides, the original glass slides and projector will be on hand for audience members to view.

The program, sponsored by the Ottawa County Museum, will be held in the Ida Rupp Public Library Community Rooms at 2 p.m. on March 10.  The museum, located at 126 W. Third St., across from the library, will be open that day from noon to 2 p.m.
