People flock to Cars for Critters

The Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge held its sixth annual Cars for Critters event on Sunday, Sept. 29. Well over 150 cars participated in the show. Participants in the show were asked to vote for their favorite cars in the Cars of Critters event. Some of the categories included best bird, best mammal, best fish, best insect, best reptile and best plumage. The registration fees and all other money raised went to benefit wildlife rehab, wildlife rescue and environmental education. 


Margaretta rallies to defeat Port Clinton

Keegan Lowe wraps up a Margaretta runner early in Friday nights game

For a while, it looked like the Port Clinton Redskins might be on the way to their first victory of the season.

Holding a 12-point lead midway thru the second quarter, Port Clinton was in the driver's seat before Margaretta scored the next 23 points to defeat the 'Skins, 30-19, on Friday.


Oak Harbor defeats Edison, improves to 3-2

A big play early can often swing momentum in one team’s favor, and that’s just what happened in Oak Harbor’s 42-21 victory over Edison on Friday night in Sandusky Bay Conference action at Rocket Stadium.

On the game’s second play from scrimmage, Edison quarterback Chris Smith raced 59 yards down the sideline before being knocked out of bounds by Rocket safety Cole Weirich at the Oak Harbor 4-yard-line. Then, on first-and-goal, Oak Harbor linebacker Cobi Brough forced a fumble that was recovered by Jourdan Maguire and suddenly the Rockets had dodged a bullet and seized momentum.


A special thanks

However, due to this lapse in appropriations this facility is closed to the public and all public activities are cancelled. 

Only limited functions will continue, such as those necessary to respond to emergencies, perform essential functions and to protect human life or personal property.
