Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone presenting Alejandro Zapata with Citizen of the Year 2013

On the night of Saturday, Feb. 22, Mayor Vince Leone presented Alejandro “Hondo” Zapata with a key to the city and the title of Citizen of the Year for 2013 at Slater’s Madison Street Pub in downtown Port Clinton.

“We usually present the award at city hall,” said Mayor Leone, “but for Hondo, I thought this would be a better venue.”

Slater’s was already packed; regular Saturday night patrons and party goers for Stella Lopez’s birthday party which was being held there. Around 10:30 p.m. Mayor Leone, Michelle, Isaiah, Xavier, and Zayden Zapata along with friends and other family parted the sea of patrons to reach Hondo at the front of Slater’s who was DJ-ing.

Mayor Leone read aloud the Proclamation from the Office of the Mayor to Zapata and everyone in Slater’s.

WWII Veterans can experience a different kind of Honor Flight at the Liberty Aviation Museum

The Liberty Aviation Museum today announced that World War II veterans will be able to experience a unique and different kind of Honor Flight this season.

“This all becomes possible because our friends up at The Yankee Air Museum (YAM) recently announced they will be honoring WW II veterans with free rides on the B-17 Yankee Lady and B-25 Yankee Warrior when a paid rider accompanies them,” states Jeff Sondles, Operations Director of the Liberty Aviation Museum. “This special two-for-one pricing is effective for the season, beginning in May and running into October.”

“All of us feel the deepest honor when a World War II veteran steps aboard one of our aircraft,” said Kevin Walsh, Executive Director of Yankee Air Museum. “We want as many World War II veterans as possible to have the opportunity to fly on the B-17 or B-25. This is a special offer for them and an imperative for us.”
