Waterworks Park

For over 30 years I have summered in the Port Clinton area. During that time, I have watched the shrinking Lake Erie coastline being taken over by condominiums and hotels that are for the most part vacant from September to May. And now the last public shoreline is being considered for development of the same. With heartfelt pleading, I beg of you to not let this happen.

Port Clinton City School District student Logan Tupa is hard at work in the kindergarten classroom.

Federal Duck Stamp events at ONWR and Maumee Bay

The Federal Duck Stamp, also known as the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, is selected by distinguished judges from hundreds of submitted works of art each year.  For every dollar sold, 98 cents are used for the lease and purchase of critical habitat for waterfowl, wetland birds and other wildlife. To date, the Federal Duck Stamp is one of the world’s most successful wildlife conservation programs, raising $850 million to preserve 6.5 million acres of habitat.

The Bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie, Sept. 10

The National Park Service continues to commemorate the Bicentennial of The Battle of Lake Erie, fought between American and British navies during the War of 1812. This battle was a decisive American victory led by Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry from the safe harbor at South  Bass Island on Sept. 10, which led to a long-lasting peace between the United States, Great  Britain, and Canada. 

A series of events will take place at Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial on Tuesday, Sept. 10.


Port Clinton Council

There is a lot of talk around town right now about council members and what their personal convictions are concerning Mike Rose and Washington Properties' development of Water Works Park. I would like to remind everyone that the elected representatives of Port Clinton are here to represent the people which they serve. Personal beliefs and interests of council members should have no part in making decisions and choices for Port Clinton residents.
