On Monday, May 26, Memorial Day, Veterans Park on North Monroe Street in Port Clinton was filled with people paying their respects to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Guest speaker Ottawa County Municipal Court Judge Frederick “Fritz” Hany gave a compelling speech to all those in attendance.
“Nothing is wrong with America that cannot be cured by America,” was first said by President Bill Clinton, but reiterated by Judge Hany in his presentation. Judge Hany spoke of the heartbreak in our country, for all reasons, or what is wrong with America, but then said that Memorial Day is what is right with America because we are honoring those that sacrificed for us and for other countries.
“Today we gather together on Memorial Day to say thank you,” said Judge Hany.
