The camp is truly a hidden gem in northern Oak Harbor.

The camp is owned, operated and run by Doug Moyer and his family; Doug’s wife, 8 children and 2 foster children. Camp Sabroske is a non-profit 501 C3 Christian campground.

Lakeside Marblehead Storage fire

A fire occurred on July 18, in building number 2 (units 22-47 and units 127-144) of the Lakeside Marblehead Storage.  The fire started sometime in the morning of July 18 and area fire fighters were dispatched immediately when smoke was detected.  Despite the hard work of area fire fighters the building was severely damaged.  It is unlikely that much will be recoverable in all but the end units of this row.

Marblehead fire fighters, the Danbury police department, and the many other volunteer firefighters responded from across the county (eleven companies total responded that day).  They fought the fire tirelessly and were able to keep the fire from spreading to any of the other units.  Other area volunteers also helped and quickly responded to donate equipment, water, and food for the fire fighters including: Dave Shrock Excavating, Starcher Enterprises, The Danbury Maintenance Crews, Red Cross, Erie Market, Subway, Bruno’s and many more that helped assist during the day.

Terra State PTA program earns accreditation

Assistant Professor Bruce Wassung and a PTA student practice a technique in the lab

Terra State Community College recently received official word that its Physical Therapist Assistant program has been granted accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).

“CAPTE granted a full five-year accreditation to Terra State, the maximum length awarded to any new PTA program,” said Bruce Wassung, PTA, MSPH, Assistant Professor and Director of Physical Therapist Assistant Program. “We are excited for our students and the patients and communities they will soon serve.”

Accreditation is important to students considering a career as a PTA, according to Wassung, because it helps assure the quality and consistency of the student’s classroom and clinical educational experiences. It is also very important to consumers of physical therapy services because it helps ensure that our patients are cared for by clinicians with the appropriate knowledge, skill and behaviors to meet the public’s expectations.

Promoting our parks

I agree with CORD’s mission statement and what they are trying to do for the people of our city. Citizens Organized for Responsible Development are an honest group who want the best for the city, her people and the natural life in our parks. I think there are many people who want our waterfront to remain as a park. These same people want our city to prosper. There can be a compromise and just because it hasn’t happened doesn’t mean that it can’t.
