Gardner and Redfern announce naming of Hetrick Highway

State Senator Randy Gardner and State Representative Chris Redfern, who both represent Ottawa County, have sponsored legislation naming a portion of State Route 51 in Ottawa County after Clay Township officer William J. Hetrick. House Bill 19 received final passage in the Senate Wednesday and is expected to be signed into law soon by Governor John Kasich. 

Officer Hetrick was killed in an automobile accident while on duty in July of 2000. Gardner and Redfern were asked by Clay Township police Chief Terry Mitchell to honor the fallen officer. 

The William J. Hetrick Memorial Highway on State Route 51 will commence at the intersection of Witty Road and proceed in a northwesterly direction to the State Route 795 intersection. Highway signs will be erected by the Ohio Department of Transportation in honor of Officer Hetrick.

Lady Redskins are sectional bowling champions

Port Clinton’s Lady Redskin Bowlers won their first OHSAA Sectional Bowling Championship at Star Lanes at the Harbor Saturday. Port Clinton trailed Huron after two games by seven pins, but went ahead in the third team game, and shot 1052 in six Baker games to earn the Championship. 

Alysia Zoeller led the Lady ‘Skins with 212-182 for a 543 series, second overall for individuals. Reilly Wittman rolled 157-181-166 for 504, Kassidy Mahler 156 for 454, Eryn Binder 151 for 448. Other team members are Samantha Stroupe, Jozlynn Seamon, Katelyn Chapman, and Shelby Radloff. 

“Our girls bowled good overall, but were sort of sloppy during the team games,” said Coach Bob Black. “After the third Baker game (129) we had a one-way discussion and they responded with 193-194-201 to finish. They are very good and talented, all 7of them, and they have to believe in themselves that they have the ability to play at a high level. And, there is lots of room for improvement, and there are no seniors!”
