Mike Bassett contributes to Ron Case Challenge Match

Mike Bassett has joined the United Way in Ot- tawa County Ron Case Challenge match of Tom Bohlander, Fairways Villas developer. Bohlander contacted United Way to honor the memory of his Fairway Villas partner and friend Ron Case by offering a tribute match dona- tion challenge of $7500. United Way in Ottawa County needs $15,000 to meet this year’s goal. Bassett has offered a Contribution Day to help meet the challenge and in celebration of Ron’s life. On Saturday, Feb.16, Bassett’s Market in Port Clinton will be donating $5 for every $50 spent on groceries (no alcohol or cigarettes) in the store. WPCR will also be doing a live radio remote from 10 a.m. to noon. If the challenge match is met on Saturday the 16 th and through other donations, United Way will be able to meet this year’s goal and will be able to continue to provide needed services throughout Ottawa County and to honor Ron Case, Tom Bohlander and Mike Bassett’s com- mitment to the community.

Public meeting with developer to be held in Port Clinton on Feb. 20

There will be a public meeting on February 20 at the Elks Lodge on Buckeye Boulevard in Port Clinton from 6-8 p.m. The meeting will be an informative meeting with Mike Rose, a developer from Washington Properties, to talk about downtown Port Clinton and the waterfront. Council members and administration will have the first opportunities to ask questions then it will be opened to public questions if time allows. Rose is the founder and chief ex- ecutive officer of Washington Prop- erties, a commercial real estate development, leasing and project management company specializing in the renovation and adaptive reuse of historic downtown properties. For over 27 years Rose, a Cleveland native now residing in Medina, has built, leased and managed com- mercial and retail space in a variety of settings. He began rehabilitating residential projects in the 1980s and developed a passion for sustainable community development. Rose founded Washington Prop- erties in 1985. As one of the civic

leaders concerned about the physi- cal and economic deterioration of downtown Medina, Rose and his firm took the lead in transforming a shuttered, 88-year-old department store into retail and office space. Rose has also developed a num- ber of commercial campuses along the growing Route 18 corridor that links Medina’s Public Square with I-71. Rose then entered the Wooster, Brecksville and Orrville markets, initiating revitalization projects to bring new businesses into the cen- tral business districts. Today, downtown Wooster fea- tures approximately 50 high-quality residential lofts that continue to be nearly 100 percent occupied. In 2012, Rose also began leasing the first market-rate condominiums in the city. “The idea is creating a met- ropolitan lifestyle with a small town charm,” said Tony Cerny, architect at Architectural Design Studios, of the Wooster revitalization.

PC Mayor touts city departments in State of the City Address

BY JOHN SCHAFFNER

A year ago, Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone didn’t think he had enough knowledge and information to give a “State of the City” address. However, this year he did, and he gave it at Tues- day night’s Port Clinton City Council Meeting. Right out of the box, he was full of praise for his staff at City Hall. “The first and most important accomplish- ments this year in my belief is that I have surrounded myself with a great group of people that equally share the desire to move the City of Port Clin- ton in a forward and positive motion,” stated Mayor Leone at the beginning of his speech. He then moved on to heap praise on all of the City Departments, starting with the Police department and Chief Rob Hickman. He noted that three vet-

eran officers, Don Gaydosh, Bob Case and Louise Bergeman retired, all with over 35 years of service. As for the Fire Department led by Chief Kent Johnson, Leone stated he would put this fire de- partment up against any community anywhere. Leone followed up with the Service Department. They completed negotia- tions with the city through Teamsters Local 20. They implemented a new way to repair streets by using a “hot box trailer” which holds hot asphalt. Over 200 tons of asphalt was used patch- ing city streets in 2012. They also had to deal with 18 water breaks. An out- sourced investigation of Port Clinton infrastructure revealed 19 leaks includ- ing 14 hydrants, 2 water mains and 2 main valve leaks. All of the repairs were made in house, according to the Mayor. Eric Peterson is the head of the City’s Service Department.

Tax revenues to the City increased by over $133,000 in 2012 compared to 2011. Improved collections and the renovations to Bataan School and con- struction of the new Middle School also had an impact. Mayor Leone also talked about a number of ongoing projects includ- ing the work of the Conestoga groups and the volunteers working on the City Garden on Beech Street. He also noted the special attention that was given to Veterans Park on Monroe Street. He spoke of the completion of the Sloan Ditch project on the City’s east side and a $250,000 grant from the Army Corps of Engineers for the waterfront. A copy of Mayor Leone’s complete State of the City address has been post- ed on The Beacon’s website, www.the- beacon.net.

PC Chamber celebrates Beacon’s 30th year

My personal thanks to all who turned out, or wanted to, for last Thursday’s PC Chamber Busi- ness After Hours at the 1812 Restaurant in the Island House. According to Laura Schlachter at the Chamber, they counted 110 business cards turned in for reg- istration, but the estimate of the number attending was well over that. The event was our official observance of the 30th Anniver- sary of The Beacon. As I said in my little speech that night, “every face is a memory”. We won’t offi - cially observe our 30th until next week.

They laid former Port Clinton Police Chief Henry Jacoby to rest on Tuesday. Hank was a “Cop’s Cop”. The officers who served un- der him loved and respected him. He drove former mayor John Fritz crazy because he always wore a suit to work instead of a police uniform. We often butted heads on how he controlled the information that his department released to the news media. That

became a particular issue with the flooding and high water prob- lems in the early 1970s. I also can now tell this story, now that all of the principals have passed on. When he was being interviewed for Chief of Police in Port Clin- ton by then Mayor Gordon Coo- per, he cautioned Gordon that if he got hired, he would enforce the law … PERIOD! That meant going after Port Clinton’s infa- mous house of ill-repute, Rosies. Gordon hired him anyway, and it wasn’t that long after that he made good on his promise. Like I said, he was a “Cop’s Cop”, and a genuinely nice man.

Letter to the Editor

Thank you It is hard to believe that it has been over a month since my mother, Mary Alice Streeter, passed away. She, like my father, Clarence Streeter, loved this town of Port Clinton. They were both raised here as children and felt this was a wonderful town in which to live and raise a family. Dad even said to me one time while we were walking near the lake, “I think Port Clinton is God’s country, why would anyone want to live anywhere else?” To which I respond- ed, “I agree with you, Dad.” Port Clinton is a wonderful area, not just because of the spectacular view of Lake Erie, and not just because of the beautiful seasons we have, its crowning glory is the people who live here! Mom’s brothers and their wives and dad’s

sister all raised their families here as well, so cousins were plentiful, which made Port Clinton the family place to be. Growing up here we felt safe, got a good education and made oh so many wonderful and fun memories. Our neighborhood was special, too. Keith & Marge Montgom- ery and Earl and Patsy Warnke were our other parents who kept me in line as much as my own parents did. But more, they, and their children, were family, too. But this past January proved that many in Port Clinton are family to Greg and me as well. We received so many wonderful cards offering condolences, prayers, and Mass- es for mom. So many memorials to Immaculate Concep- tion, American Red Cross and to Stein Hospice, as well as other non-profit organizations, like the Ottawa County Museum, etc. We received many Facebook messages, e- mails and texts telling us that people are thinking of us, praying for us. For a month now, wherever I go people come up to me and tell me how sorry they are that mom is gone, that THEY MISS HER SO MUCH, that mom always put a smile on their face when they would depart. People would stop their conversations and say, “I have to give Carol a hug” as I was coming toward them. The hugs and the smiles that I get in the grocery store, at church, in the

street…

maybe there are other places in Ohio, or even in

the United States, like this, but I am glad I am here, with all of you. I feel I am blessed, and I KNOW I am blessed, to have so many to comfort me, as I pray I am comforting

you as well in your loss of a friend, a mentor, a role model,

a buddy, a sister in Christ. Mom left a wonderful legacy in Port Clinton, as did my dad. They gave to others and in return they received so much goodness and love. Many of the “girls” at Curves said mom inspired them as well as made them laugh while working out, now it is YOUR responsibility to keep the smiles and laughter going. You keep encouraging each other so you can “look good in the box”! (Mom’s sense of humor - the daughter of an undertaker!) Even after all these words, I still don’t know how to say, ‘THANK YOU’ for all you have done for mom and for Greg and me. I truly am so appreciative of all the TLC this past month. Sometimes it seems she is not even gone be-

cause I see her reflected in all of you. I will say it again,

I feel so blessed to be living in Port Clinton with so many wonderful people.

God Bless. Love you, Carol & Greg Fox

WENTE
BROTHERS MORNING
FOG CHARDONNAY
Each summer morning, fog billows inland through the Golden Gate, pushed
by Pacific wind streams into the bowl of the San Francisco Bay. Here, it
forms deep fog banks that rest on the East Bay Hills. In just one place, the
Livermore Valley, with its unique East-West orientation, the fog banks come
further east, cooling the air as it goes. This daily phenomenon creates the
Mediterranean or Marine climate found in less than 1% of the world’s land
mass. And it makes the San Francisco Bay and Livermore Valley appellations
ideal for growing wine grapes that are beautifully balanced. This Chardonnay,
named Morning Fog, pays homage to this rare climate.

Rep. Latta visits The Beacon

BY DONNA LUEKE On Friday U.S. Representative Robert Latta, whose 5th district includes parts of western Ottawa County, visited The Beacon’s of- fice in Port Clinton. Rep. Latta talked about the four issues that he most commonly hears about from his constitu- ents. They are: regulatory issues, health care, taxes and energy. Latta serves on the Energy and Commerce, Telecommunications

and Regulatory committees. According to Latta, the brightest spot amongst these issues and committees is energy, as it is predicted that by 2020 the United States will pass Saudi Arabia in energy production and has the potential to be the world’s largest supplier of natural gas. Latta’s recommendation on energy is that “we don’t pick the winners and losers” with energy companies. When asked what he can do or is doing to help break the partisan deadlock in Washington, he said that the administration has made bipartisanship difficult, but also that “Republicans need to do better at communicating”, and “I really think we can all work together.” When asked what his constituents can do, he advised that they “stay informed and in con- tact, by email, mail and calls. Never say ‘my voice doesn’t matter. I am just one person.’ I look at every letter. Don’t be afraid to talk to your friends and neighbors (about policies and politi- cal issues). If you don’t, others will.”

The Danbury Township Trustees and Ken Kostal will

hold a fund-raising dinner at Big Bopper’s Restaurant,

7581 East Harbor Road in Danbury Township, on Thurs-

day, Feb. 21, 4-8 p.m. Kostal offered to host the dinner to raise funds for The Newtown Community Fund, to help purchase 26 trees for Newtown, a close neighbor to Dan- bury, CT, for whom Danbury Township was named.

The food is being donated by Big Boppers, Bassett’s Market and the Canoe Club Wine Bar and includes salad, garlic bread, spaghetti, meatballs and dessert. The cost is $10 per adult and children age 5 and under are $5. Many gifts have been donated for a raffle that will be held that

evening. A fifty-fifty drawing will also be held. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased in advance at Big Boppers. All proceeds from the dinner and raffles will be added to the fund. Monetary donations for the trees will continue to be ac- cepted until mid-March at both branches of the Marble- head Bank, at the Danbury Township Police Station lo- cated at 419 Bridge Road and at Danbury Township Hall,

Community Gathers to Help One of Their Own

On December 23, 2012, Oak Harbor DECA members hosted a benefit din- ner at the Oak Harbor Golf Course. The purpose of the dinner was to raise funds for an Oak Harbor High School gradu- ate, Amy Ottney-Wolff, who is battling breast cancer. Approximately 50 community mem- bers attended the dinner and enjoyed an evening of food, family, and fun. This event is part of a community service project titled “Keep Calm & Fight On” which was organized by DECA mem- bers to help cover expenses for Amy and her family. Amy was a 2004 graduate of Oak Har- bor High School and was very involved in DECA at both the local and state level. During her senior year, Amy won the position of Ohio DECA Parliamen-

tarian and became the first state officer from the Oak Harbor DECA chapter. After high school, she went on to pursue a degree in fashion at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchan- dising in Los Angeles, California. Amy held several po- sitions in the industry from designing clothing sold at Disney stores to working for Forever 21 to her current position creating fashions for Barbie and other dolls which are now being sold in stores such as Wal-Mart.

The chapter is planning a Quarter Mania to raise additional funds for Amy.

PCHS DECA Denim for a Difference

Port Clinton High School DECA is collecting old jeans in preparation for their trip to the State DECA conference in March. PCHS students are teaming up with other area high schools for their “Denim for a Difference” campaign. This is a spin-off of a larger campaign called “Jeans for Teens”. Any unwanted jeans, in any size and any condition, are welcomed. Community collection boxes for donating denim are at Ida Rupp Public Library and Huntington Bank on Catawba between Feb. 19 and March 11. PCHS DECA stu- dents will take the donations with them to Columbus. All the jeans will be cleaned and repaired then distributed to homeless shelters across Ohio.

The Beacon

February 14, 2013 S C H O O L S The Beacon Auto Body student Porsche

Auto Body student Porsche Donich (Danbury HS) with her newly painted truck, right before she began one of the final steps of making it shine with buffing compound.

EHOVE student translates skills into results

EHOVE’S Auto Body student Porsche Donich (Danbury HS) is proud of the work she and her classmates did to repair her truck during class. They took rust off the body of the truck, fixed dents and re - painted the whole truck a deep purple color. “All the dent repair skills I have learned at EHOVE have been a huge help,” said Donich, a senior in the program. “Work - ing as a team helped me with my leader- ship skills as well.” Students in EHOVE’s Auto Body Pro - gram learn how to fix damaged vehicles using professional techniques including welding, sanding, painting and wrench work skills. They are prepared for careers where they can become an auto body re - pair tech, body shop owner or auto refin -

isher. Currently Donich is also working on repairing her engine and is proud of the outcome of her vehicle with the skills she learned in EHOVE’s Auto Body Program. Even though there traditionally aren’t many females in the career field, she is un- daunted. “More girls should get into the auto body field,” she said. “Girls can do anything a guy can do.” Donich is considering attending Ohio Technical College after graduation to study classic car restoration. EHOVE Career Center is career tech school and adult education facility in Mi - lan Township that serves multiple school districts in Erie, Huron and Ottawa Coun - ties. For more information, go to www. EHOVE.net or call 419-499-4663 x232.

Danbury P.A.W.S Club holds pet food drive

From Feb. 11-28 the Danbury High School P.A.W.S. Clug is holding a pet food drive to benefit the P.A.W.S Club Pet Pantry. The following donations are needed: cat litter, dry dog food, dry cat food , canned cat food and dog and cat treats. Monetary donations (checks only, made out to Danbury Local Schools, At - tention P.A.W.S. Club) are also encour- aged and will be used to purchase pet food. P.A.W.S. stands for ¨Promoting Ani - mal Welfare by Students¨. This Dan - bury High School Club currently has 60 members who are committed to bettering the lives of all animals. Mrs. Sherri Roth, veteran Spanish teacher and animal lover, founded the club in January 2008. In January 2011, the idea of establishing a monthly pet pantry at the local food pantry came to life, based on the sad reality of people in financial hardship often having to choose to feed themselves or their children over feed -

ing their pets, or in many cases having to surrender their animals to shelters or dog pounds. P.A.W.S now has a pet pantry commit - tee that plans and oversees the collection and distribution of pet food and cat lit- ter. These students share the mindset that pets are family, too, and deserve to be fed adequately and to remain in their homes with their loved ones. Because of their efforts, clients of the food pantry who are pet owners now look for the P.A.W.S pet pantry table and are grateful for the help in feeding their pets. Clients often chat with students about their pets and show interest in the students´ lives. The P.A.W.S Club is committed long-term to “doing good” for needy animals in our area. The continued support of the community, along with the Club´s fundraising activi - ties, are key to sustaining its month- ly pet pantry in Danbury Township.

Immaculate Conception School’s first graders build lighthouses

Immaculate Conception School’s first grade class has a long stand - ing tradition. For seventeen years, Mrs. Rita McNutt’s students have been asked to pick a lighthouse from anywhere in the world, study its history, and then build a model of the beacon of their choice. Mrs. McNutt is a lighthouse enthusiast herself and has traveled with her husband to visit numerous lighthouses. She began light - house projects in 1996, the year of the 175 th anniversary celebration of the Marblehead Lighthouse. Since that time she has been taking her class on a day trip to the Marblehead Lighthouse and the keeper’s house. The students get a rich knowledge of the history of the area they call “home”. The project allows the students and their parents to spend time to- gether looking up the information and then coming up with house- hold objects to replicate the lighthouse. This year lighthouses were chosen from Vietnam, England, Canada, and six from the United States shorelines. Mrs. McNutt has visited five of the nine lighthous - es created by her class. The lighthouses will be on display at Ida Rupp Public Library be - ginning this Friday, Feb. 8, for several weeks.

Nora Bodie reads to Bataan Primary Principal Kendra Van Do- ren. Teachers at Bataan Primary use “Positive Office Referrals” to reward students for working hard in the classroom. The Positive Office Referrals vary from reading a book to the prin- cipal to sharing a story they wrote. After the sharing, they can choose a small gift. Each student then receives a note to take home so parents know they are doing well at school.

Port Clinton rebounds from loss to defeat Edison

BY YANEEK SMITH Following a heartbreaking loss to Clyde last weekend, the Port Clinton girls’ bas- ketball team responded with a resound- ing victory over Edison, 49-25, Thursday to improve to 17-3 overall and 11-2 in the Sandusky Bay Conference. The Redskins controlled the game throughout, taking a 32-6 lead into half- time as they cruised to victory. Hannah Weaver led all scorers with 16 points and

Emily Ashley chipped in with 14 as Port Clinton shot a stellar 63 percent from the field in the first two quarters. Ciara Reed had 11 points to lead the Chargers. The ‘Skins finish the regular season with home games against Fremont Ross (Tues- day) and Huron (Thursday). Port Clinton has yet to face Ross this season but did de- feat Huron in the first matchup.

Port Clinton freshman, Nathan Stubblefield, puts up a shot over the Clyde defense on Friday night.

PC boys fall to Fliers

BY YANEEK SMITH Behind 19 points from point guard Derek Gray, the Clyde Fliers defeated Port Clinton, 68-47, last Friday. With the win, the Fliers improved to 12-6 and 7-3 in the SBC while the ‘Skins fell to 3-14 and 3-9 in the league. Clyde got going from the start, taking a 17-13 lead after the first quarter before pushing the advantage to 41-25 at halftime. Freshman Nathan Stubblefield led all scorers with 21 points and Carter finished with 11 points to lead the ‘Skins. The ‘Skins host Edison (Fri.) and Fostoria (Sat.) this weekend.

Danbury boys fall to Lakota in game at The ‘Q’

BY YANEEK SMITH In a special event for Danbury High School, the Laker boys’ basketball team competed at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland last week against Lakota as part of the High School Hoops Showcase. Danbury did lose the game, 47-33, but it was a special experience nonetheless. The Raiders (6-13) took an 8-4 lead after one quarter before pushing the advantage to 22-11 at halftime. The Lakers responded in the third quarter, outscoring Lakota, 11-7, to make it a 29-22 game heading into the final pe- riod, but the Raiders put things away with an 18-11 run in the fourth to claim victory. Lakota’s Darris McGown led all scorers with 14 and Co- lin Timmons and Nate Ray scored 13 and 12, respectively. Chance Mackall led Danbury (1-16) with 12 points and Dylan Buckley finished with eight. The Lakers have three games this week — @ Maumee Valley CD (Tues.); Toledo Christian (Fri.); @ Oak Harbor (Sat.). Danbury fell in their first matchup versus MVCD, 65-30, and lost to the Eagles, 84-31, on Jan. 18.

Lady Rockets win third straight

BY YANEEK SMITH In what could be the defining game of the year for the Oak Harbor girls’ basketball team, the Rockets rallied from a 14-point deficit and defeated Margaretta in dramatic fashion, 49- 45, last week to improve to 13-7 and 7-6 in the Sandusky Bay Conference. Down 28-17 at halftime, the Rock- ets went on a furious rally as they employed a full-court press that gave the Polar Bears fits, causing a num- ber of turnovers as Oak Harbor got back into the game. Andrea Cecil helped pace the Rockets with 15 points and Abbie

Gezo chipped in with 14.

Kelsey

Kromer led all scorers with 16 points and Kendra Gast added 12.

The Rockets controlled this one throughout, jumping out to an early lead and taking a 32-17 advantage into the half. Maria Boers led all scorers with 16 points, Andrea Cecil chipped in with 15 and Abbie Gezo had 14. Jocelyn Cole finished with 11 points for the Tornadoes. Oak Harbor finishes up its regu- lar-season slate with a road game against Lakota on Tuesday before coming home to host St. Mary CC on Senior Night on Thursday.

Oak Harbor boys fall to Perkins

BY YANEEK SMITH Despite getting 15 points from guard A.J. Cecil, the Oak Harbor boys’ basketball team lost its fourth consecutive game, falling, 69-41, to Perkins last weekend. Holding a 29-25 lead at halftime, the Pirates put things away in the third quarter by outscoring the Rockets (9-9, 6-5 SBC), 23-6, to put the game out of reach. Perkins (15-4, 11-1 SBC), which is tied with Huron for first place in the conference, got 17 points apiece from Nick Williams and Brandon Smith.

Greg Haar helped pace Oak Har- bor with seven points.

Genoa 77, Oak Harbor 73 In a back-and-forth game that saw the lead change countless times, Oak Harbor fell to cross-town rival Ge- noa, 77-73, in non-conference ac- tion last week. Led by Luke Rightnowar’s 22 points, the Comets stormed back from a second-half deficit and took the lead for good late in the fourth quarter on a layup by guard Casey Gose. Jake Schimming and Noah Go-

odrich helped pace Genoa (3-16) by scoring 15 points apiece. All of Go- odrich’s points came from beyond the three-point line. The Rockets got 17 points from Austin Wiegand, who gave the Rock- ets their final lead on a bucket inside with 50 seconds to play, and A.J. Ce- cil chipped in with 14 while Greg Haar and Andy Rathbun finished with 12 apiece. Oak Harbor returns to action this week when it travels to Margaretta (Fri.) and host Danbury (Sat.).

Danbury defeats MVCD, improves to 10-11

BY YANEEK SMITH After losing three straight games, the Danbury girls’ basketball team righted the ship with a 43-7 victory over Maumee Valley Country Day last week. After improving to 9-8 two weeks ago, the Lakers fell on hard times, losing to three quality opponents in Toledo Christian, Cardinal Stritch and Huron to drop to 9-11. Danbury (10-11, 9-4 TAAC) took control from the outset as it con- nected on a number of outside shots against the Hawks’ zone defense. Danbury raced out to an early lead and held a 19-2 advantage after one quarter before pushing the margin to 25-6 at halftime. The Lakers con- trolled things in the second half as

well, outscoring MVCD (1-17, 0-12 TAAC), 18-3, in the final two quar- ters. Lavelle led all scorers with 14 points. Stephens finished with eight and Stephanie Kukay and Katie Al- mendinger scored six and eight points, respectively. Cammie Lon- sway, Miranda Vargas and Kennedy Jackson each finished with two points to lead the Hawks. Danbury hosts Ottawa Hills next Thursday on Senior Night with a chance to finish the year at .500 with an 11-11 record. And, after going 7-7 in the conference last season, a win would put the Lakers at 10-4 and as- sure them of a second-place finish in the TAAC.

The Court of Common Pleas

I promised to tell you more about the Ottawa County Court of Common Pleas on a regular basis. Our last arti- cle gave an overview of what we do, now perhaps I’ll delve into the specifics of how criminal cases come to us. Unlike the Municipal or Juvenile Courts, police offi- cers are not permitted to file their cases directly with this Court. Criminal cases come to this court either having been reviewed by the Municipal Court Judge in a Prelimi- nary Hearing, or by being reviewed by the Grand Jury to determine if there is “probable cause” for someone to face charges. Probable cause means that a crime has probably been committed and the accused probably committed the crime. Only then can charges be filed in the Common Pleas Court. If the Municipal Court Judge finds there is probable cause, he then transfers the case to the Common Pleas Court. If the matter is heard by the Grand Jury and they find probable cause an “indictment” is given. The indictment is the document informing the accused that he or she has been accused of a crime and gives the gen- eral nature of the offense with which he or she has been charged. Under either procedure the accused is served with for- mal charges, usually by the Sheriff. In some circumstances the accused is arrested and in others the accused is or- dered to appear in court at a specific time and date. The prosecuting attorney makes the determination who is ar- rested and who is “summoned” into court. The first appearance in court is called an “initial ap- pearance.” This is where the accused is formally advised of the charges against him or her, the potential penalties involved, as well as his or her right to an attorney. If the accused is unable to afford an attorney, one is appointed to represent them from a list of local attorneys. Bail is then set. The purpose of bail is to ensure the accused returns for future court proceedings and to ensure that the ac- cused is law abiding if he or she is out of jail while their case is pending. We require that everyone who comes into court for a criminal offense of any type submit to a drug test to de-

termine what, if any, drugs are in his or her system. We are testing for illegal drugs and drugs for which the accused does not have a prescription. When any accused is released into the community the court monitors them with drug testing on a consistent, but random basis. If the accused is found to have used drugs, the community release is termi- nated and they are sent to jail to await trial. The second hearing is the “Arraignment” where the ac- cused enters a plea of “guilty” or “not guilty”. Following arraignment the case is set for “pretrial” where the pros- ecutor and the defense attorney exchange evidence and information in an effort to resolve the case, either through

a negotiated plea to a less serious charge, “plea bargain-

ing”, dismissal of the charges, or trial. Very few criminal cases proceed to trial, less than 2%. Plea bargains are given at the sole discretion of the prosecutor because he alone knows the quality of his case and the shortcomings, if any. The next step in the process may be trial and I will cover

that aspect in a later article along with jury service. If the accused is found guilty at trial the matter is set for sen- tencing. If the trial concludes with a “not guilty” finding, the charges are dismissed and the defendant is released.

If rather than trial, a plea is negotiated between the pros-

ecutor and defendant, the matter is set for “plea Change” where the defendant admits the charges. Again the matter

is then set for sentencing.

Following the plea Change, the Probation Department of the court the engages in an investigation of the defen- dant, his or her criminal background if any the defendant’s mental health, drug and alcohol issues, and any other fac- tors that may play a part in determining an appropriate sentence. It has been my experience that nearly 75% of the defendants who come before me have drug and or alcohol issues and as many as half have a mental health issue the requires medical intervention. I review the report of the probation department before

the sentencing hearing. At the sentencing hearing I listen to the prosecutor, the defendant’s attorney, victims and others before I make a decision about a sentence. While

These Cedars will grow up to 3’ per year, are deer resistant, have a strong root system, and no major insect problems. They make a great windbreak or privacy screen. Fast growing varieties of deciduous trees offered are Au- tumn Blaze Maple, Cleveland Flowering Pear, and Tulip Poplar. Other trees available are Red Oak, Prairifire Cra- bapple, Canada Red Choke Cherry and Princeton Ameri- can Elm. Butterfly Bushes, Reblooming Purple Lilac Bushes, Pink Knock Out Roses, and Red Double Knock Out Roses

are also available for purchase. Native grass packets are again available. The District reminds everyone that the Colorado Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, Arborvitae, Bald Cypress and

White Oak are only seedlings, with sizes ranging from 8” – 18”.

Green Rocket Cedars do very well in our soil and are about

2’ in size. All are pre-packed and come complete with plant-

ing instructions! Prices range from $8.00 to $35.00. If you would like an order form or have questions, call the Ottawa SWCD of- fice at 419-898-1595. Early ordering is encouraged because supplies are limited (particularly for the fast growing vari- eties and Red Oaks). Deadline for ordering is April 5, 201. Money raised from the program goes to support District Programs throughout the year. To view the different variet- ies or print out an order form visit www.ottawaswcd.com.

many have opinions as the proper sentence the final de- cision is mine alone. The law allows me a certain range of sentence, such as up to 12 months in prison, or up to life in prison depending on the seriousness of the offense, but in reality the law doesn’t permit me to send many de- fendants to prison. After plea bargains are made only 6% are eligible for prison. The remainder either spend time in our local jail or are placed on probation. I will talk more about these options in future articles. If you have questions you would like me to address please contact me at ococpc@gmail.com. Remember, I can’t talk about specific cases.

TWO DEDICATED KIWANIANS HONORED

Last Wednesday Port Clinton Kiwanis Club President Carl Koebel (far right) awarded two long-time and dedicated Kiwanians, Mark Giaco and Anita Gribble, The Walter Zeller Fellowship Award. The award is named after Walter Zeller, who made the first dona- tion to the Kiwanis International Foundation. The Port Clinton Kiwanis Club made two $1,500 dona- tions to the Kiwanis International lead project known as the ELIMINATE project. The organization globally is trying to raise enough money to wipe out maternal neo-natal tetanus and the Port Clinton Club’s dona- tion is going toward that cause.

Leone receives CFP® certification

Frank Leone of the financial servic- es firm Edward Jones in Port Clinton has been authorized by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board) to use the certification mark CFP®. Leone successfully completed CFP

Board’s initial certification require- ments, which include completion of financial planning coursework and passing a comprehensive examina- tion. Individuals who hold CFP® certi- fication must agree to meet ongoing

Magruder’s Laboratory earns CAP re-accreditation

Magruder Hospital’s Laboratory Department was awarded re-accred- itation by the Commission on Labo- ratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on results of a recent on-site inspec- tion. Lawrence Fanelly DO, Medical Director of Magruder’s Laboratory, was advised of this national recogni- tion and congratulated for the “ex- cellence of services being provided.” Magruder’s Laboratory is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited lab-

oratories nationwide. During the CAP accreditation pro- cess, inspectors examine the labora- tory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the entire staff’s qualifications, the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the labo- ratory. The CAP inspection is recog- nized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than

the government’s own inspection program. The College of American Patholo- gists is a medical society serving near- ly 18,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest as- sociation composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists, and is widely considered the leader in labo- ratory quality assurance.

Applicants do not need to be affiliated with the Catholic Church but must be in compliance with Catholic moral and social teach- ings. Local grant applications are due March 20.

Public support encouraged for those with developmental disabilities

The campaign theme for Devel- opmental Disabilities (DD) Aware- ness Month 2013 is “Look Beyond!” REM Ohio is inviting people to look beyond an individual’s disability to picture that person’s potential, seeing the individual’s unique capabilities and abilities. REM Ohio and other related organizations celebrate DD Awareness Month in March, and in- vite people to embrace the important message of this year’s theme.

“This is a time when our organiza- tion focuses on encouraging the pub- lic to better understand the individu- als we serve,” said Jo Spargo, REM Ohio Executive Director. “During DD Awareness Month, we encourage all communities to join together and learn more about those who have de- velopmental disabilities. We all need to recognize that everyone has talents and abilities and this blend of diver- sity makes our community and state

a great place to live.” During March, Developmental Dis- abilities Awareness Month, everyone is encouraged to get acquainted with someone who has a developmental disability. Everyone has something to offer and when we look beyond dis- abilities, we all accomplish more. For more information on how you can bring awareness to your commu- nity all year long visit www.rem-oh. com.
