Finding Wiley in Las Vegas, Nevada

I found Wiley!!! No, not Wylie Walleye, Larry Wiley, the star running back of the undefeated Port Clinton football team of 1962. I had a Publishers Business Summit in Las Vegas last Saturday. I couldn’t get a flight out until late Sunday, so I made arrangements to spend some time with Larry Wiley who lives in Vegas with his lovely wife Catherine (Coleman) who graduated from PCHS in 1965. They hope to come “home” in July for the Class of 1963’s 50 year reunion and a special reunion of the ’62 football team in September. I learned all about the football teams of the early 1960’s. Larry picked me up at the hotel and took me to his home. Catherine, an avid LA Laker fan, also served me a steak dinner topped off by a delicious slice of Apple Pie. They couldn’t have been more hospitable. I can tell you, Larry still can’t get over the only blemish on the record of that team, a 6-6 tie with Perrysburg that cost them a perfect season and the outright Northern Lakes League championship.

Walleye Capital

I was happy to see the rendering of a possible view of downtown Port Clinton in The Beacon.  It is exceptional, especially including the downtown and the waterfront as one package.  However, I take exception with “Walleye Capital of the World.”  If we keep using that tag line aren’t we potentially only appealing to a small part of the audience we want to reach?  Why not use a more inclusive tag line like Fish. Play. Eat. Shop. Port Clinton, Ohio   or - Where relaxing, shopping, touring and fishing come together – Port Clinton, Ohio.
