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.

Photos of old Port Clinton

Back by popular request, Chuck Grindstaff will present his program on old Port Clinton, using glass slides donated to the Ottawa County Museum by Rudy Dracka.  The audience will be challenged to identify the locations of photographs taken around 1915, followed by recent photos taken from the same vantage point as those by the early photographer.  Although the program will use digitized copies of the slides, the original glass slides and projector will be on hand for audience members to view.

The program, sponsored by the Ottawa County Museum, will be held in the Ida Rupp Public Library Community Rooms at 2 p.m. on March 10.  The museum, located at 126 W. Third St., across from the library, will be open that day from noon to 2 p.m.
