Meeting Mr. Rose

Last week a friend of mine, Grant McCallum, a small business owner from Marblehead, and I took the time to travel to Medina to meet personally with Mr. Mike Rose of Washington Properties. It is our opinion that Mr. Rose is one of the most professional and accomplished businessman we’ve ever met. Also, I found him to be one of the most pleasant and fair-minded businessmen that I’ve ever met in my fifty plus years of being in business.

Micropolitan Cities, as Mr. Rose describes them, are cities with less than 50,000 citizens. Medina and Wooster are considered Micropolitan Cities and have experienced significant improvement in their standards of living and also in attracting both small and large new businesses as a result of the vision, commitment and efforts put forth by the Washington Properties team.

Even Bad Problems can find a Solution

Love conquers all. That is a pretty definitive statement. But for the parent of a son or daughter addicted to opiates, it is an even bigger statement.

Lesha Cuttaia graduated from Port Clinton High School. Her life was going great until 1998. She was working in the automotive world making a great career for herself having moved to Toledo in 1999. Her son, Franklin, called her one day from Athens, Ohio, and said, “Mom, come get me…I need help!” No, he wasn’t in an auto accident; he was using legally prescribed Oxycodone opiate pills. “I never knew anybody on opiates before,” said Lesha. Her son was experiencing one of the bad affects of opiate use…his organs began going dormant. Lesha knew she needed to find help for her son, but where? There was no help available as far as she knew.

Is it time to use crawlers yet?

It’s been a long time coming this spring, but hopefully the warmer weather is finally on its way. I can’t remember a time, living here in Port Clinton over the last 13 years, where I have had to wear my long underwear and the full body Mustang suit this long into the month of May. It’s really quite exhausting! Just like everyone else, I’m longing for the days where I can wear shorts and flip flops in the boat again.

Walleye fishing has been good, but not great, this last week. The strong winds and cold temperatures we have endured have scattered the fish around their normal feeding areas, and locating and catching them has been a bit of a challenge, though not impossible.  

The water temperatures took a little step backwards, from the low 50’s back to the high 40’s, but are on the rise again now.

Port Clinton falls to Norwalk in sectional contest

Sometimes a little bad luck or a mistake can snowball into something much, much bigger.

That's just what happened to Port Clinton on Saturday in their 10-0 loss to Norwalk in the Division II Sectional Semifinal at Norwalk High School. The Truckers took control of the game in the first inning, scoring seven runs and adding another three in the second to account for their 10 runs.

In the first, Norwalk's Joe Hinkley reached on a single before three consecutive bunts, the first two being base hits, plated a run to give the Truckers a 2-0 lead. Avery Albright singled to pushed the lead to 3-0 and Marcus McClain's two-run single gave Norwalk a five-run advantage. Hinkley then connected on a double to make it 7-0, effectively putting the game away.

The Redskins do have some games remaining, the final ones for six of their players: Zak Floro, Ian Kyle, Austin Krupp, Kody Ratliff, Dylan Webb and Joe Zam.
