The Village Square

By Robert Hruska Marblehead Zoning Administrator

Happy New Year everybody!  I hope this letter finds you well.

In case you thought you heard more construction trucks going by this year: you did!  We had 20 new homes built in the village in 2013. That is twice as many homes as in 2012. We also issued permits for 4 house additions and a dozen accessory structures including four fences, three sheds, several garages and a swimming pool.

The Gift of Knowledge

It is approaching the New Year. The best gift you can give for the holidays and the New Year is the gift of knowledge of your personal information. 

I have all of my financial affairs in order.

That is fine but does anyone else know these facts other than you?  Does your spouse know of every bank you utilize and what type of accounts are in these banks? Do you know if there is a lockbox, and if so, do you know where the key is stored?  This may sound trivial but upon a serious illness or death it can be crucial that your spouse or child be in position to continue to keep the home front running.

As the winter blahs set in, a fixture of the summer party scene will be coming to town. Popular Put-In-Bay entertainer Ray Fogg will bring his one-man show of island fun to Fremont for a single performance at Strikers (at Plaza Lanes) on Saturday, Jan. 25. Showtime will be 9 p.m. with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Seating will be limited. Tickets are available by calling 419-332-1192.

Ray Fogg has become a favorite of islanders and tourists alike at Put-In-Bay. He performs about 50 shows on the island during the season. Cleveland’s Sun Papers said, “What attracts people to Fogg’s shows is his ability to write, and better yet ad lib, edgy comical songs and anecdotes perfectly suited to a beer-drinking crowd.”

For more information call Strikers at 419-332-1192 or Ray Fogg Productions at 216-749-3334.

Eli leads Rockets to victory

Behind 20 points from sophomore guard Athena Eli, the Oak Harbor Rockets recovered from an early deficit to defeat Woodmore 42-29 in non-conference action to improve to 7-2 on the year.

It was a breakout performance by Eli, who had yet to have a game like this all year. If she scored like this a more consistent basis, she would provide a solid third option behind Andrea Cecil and Emma Barney.

Oak Harbor trailed, 8-7, after the first quarter before outscoring the Wildcats 12-7 in the second quarter to take control of the contest. The Rockets outscored Woodmore 23-14 in the second half.
