Port Clinton High School Government Day

PCHS Government student, Ashlynn Slauterbeck, works with City Treasurer Edna Hansen as part of Student Government Day.  High School students shadowed government officials for the day. 

Some students in Mr. Greg Scalf’s Government Classes had the opportunity to learn, first hand, what life is really like as a public official.  On May 13, students spent a portion of the day with City Officials and learned about the requirements and responsibilities of their positions.  

Mayor Vince Leone had assistance from PCHS students Allesandria Dracka and Jack Warner.  Sabrina Webster and Jesse Escobedo spent the morning with Fire Chief Kent Johnson learning about all the responsibilities of the local Fire Department.  With the help of Judge Hany, Rich Gillum and George Wilbur, along with other officials, students had a mock trial during the day.  Police Chief for the day, Keegan Lowe, even arrested defendants Eryn Binder and Kassidy Mahler during their lunch at Port Clinton High School!

Friendship Park to showcase local artists

The showcase area for this project will be in Friendship Park on the wall where the old mural once was. Keith Fleming and Carol Morgan, co-chairs of the project, said that estimations they received to just fix the wall, not even counting the mural, ranged from $30k-$115k. 

“Mineral pigment paint was supposed to be used on outside murals and the mural was painted with latex paint,” said Fleming. 

The wall that the mural was painted on also wasn’t built to hold a mural even if it was applied correctly.
