RELAY FOR LIFE

Wish upon a cure at OHHS

This is the big weekend! The Ottawa County Relay for Life begins at 6 p.m. Fri- day, June 8 , and lasts until noon Saturday, June 9. So much is planned for those 18 ex- citing hours at the Oak Harbor High School Athletic Field. With a Disney-themed — “When You Wish Upon A Cure” — the planning com- mittee created themed laps along with some traditional favorites for the 18 registered teams. All survivors are invited to the Des- sert Reception in the Auxiliary gym from 4:30 to 4:45 p.m. T-shirts and goodie bags will be available here also. The opening ceremony begins at 6 p.m. with Ronald McDonald helping to kick off this high-energy event. He will be at the re- lay until 8 p.m. The public is welcome to at- tend. Enjoy the food at the concession stand and special items at the team tents. Bid on a piece of art or a themed basket, watch an adult basketball tournament, take your photo at the old-fashioned photo booth us- ing dress-up items, eat a rootbeer float — do some or all. A memory tent is available for pictures of loved ones, to write a message or just to re-

member. The Luminaria Ceremony begins at 10 p.m. Luminaries can be purchased at Relay for survivors, cancer victims or for caretak- ers. A Remembrance Lap follows at 11 and reminds all why we walk and work so hard to collect funds to fight this killer. At 8 a.m. Saturday, wake up with a Zumba class. The Lions Club will prepare breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. and donate a portion of the proceeds to Relay. Harbor Lights will perform during the 9 to 10 a.m. Princess Lap then teams will be challenged with the Scrabble lap which completes the special laps for Relay. Help your favorite team cre- ate the longest word from letters collected by walkers during the hour. From 11:30 until noon, complete one last lap with your team and attend the closing ceremony. Remember, we do this to save lives and cel-

ebrate more birthdays. Stay well, get well, find a cure and fight back.

Local adults earn Scouting honors

As the Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America, celebrates it’s 100th year of Scouting in Northwest Ohio, the Council will honor their adult volunteer Scouters for their time and talent in working with the youth of Northwest Ohio and also honor some of the youth who have earned special recognitions this past year. The pro- grams and activities of the Erie Shores Council work to instill values in young people and prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential and becoming valuable citizens of our com- munities. The annual Scouter Recognition Dinner will be June 7 at historic Camp Miakonda, 5600 W. Sylvania Ave., Toledo. Dinner is at 6 p.m. with the program fol- lowing at the outdoor Council Ring at 7 p.m. Roger Carpenter from Oak Harbor will receive the John Haar Lifetime Volunteer Service Award. The John C. Haar Lifetime Volunteer Service Award was estab- lished in 2009 to honor John C. Haar, who also served his community through exemplary lifelong volunteer service. The Haar Award is intended to honor direct support of community activities and indirect support provided through leadership roles in civic and commu-

nity organizations. Roger has been a major influence and mentor as a Scoutmaster for 61 years, and a strong supporter of the Oak Harbor and Ottawa County com- munity. Another local, John Blodgett of Oak Harbor, will be presented with one of six Silver Beacer Awards. This is the highest award the council can bestow on an adult volunteer. It is given in recognition of noteworthy ser- vice of exceptional character to youth both in and out of Scouting. Also recognized will be the over 2,000 adult volunteer leaders in Northwest Ohio who work with our young people, boys 7-21 and young men and women ages 14-

21.

The Compassionate Friends members Chris Overmyer, Cheri Carpenter, Kathy Stover, Kim Chaffin, Chapter Leader Roseann Hickman and Kim Weis, Director of the Magruder Hospital Emergency Room.

The Compassionate Friends present infant memory kits

Infant loss can be devastating to any family. The Com- passionate Friends of Ottawa County recently presented Magruder Hospital with Infant Memory and Comfort Kits as a gift to families going through the grieving process. The kit comes with a baby blanket, teddy bear, memory book and handprint kit, along with other keepsake items. The Compassionate Friends member Chris Overmyer experienced the loss of his son and felt a need for some- thing in place at our local hospital. “Losing my son was a devastating experience in my life,” he said. “I wanted to give something back to the commu- nity who was so supportive during my family’s time of need. Though losing a child can never be minimized these memorial bags will help other parents collect and memo- rialize their child. During a very difficult time so many parents don’t realize what things they may want to keep to remember their child’s last day.” This kit will help them remember the special child they have lost.

Port Clinton Safety Town

Children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of

2012 are invited to attend the Port Clinton Safety Town. The program will be held from 10 a.m. to noon June 19- 22 at the Port Clinton Fire Department, 1755 E. State St. On Tuesday, June 19, the Port Clinton Police Depart- ment will teach the children about buckling up for safety,

walking safety and stranger danger. An officer will also

provide safety instructions in the Safety Town Village. Wednesday, June 20, the Port Clinton Fire Department will talk about fire safety while the children visit the Smoke House, a simulator of an actual house fire. Thursday, June 21, North Central EMS crew members will teach the children about home and play- ground safety and what to do when an emergency

occurs. The Ohio Depart- ment of Natural Resources, Division of Watercraft, will present their Kids and Floats program and discuss water safety. Friday, June 22, the last day of Safety Town, will include a school bus ride

that will teach the children

proper entering and exit- ing rules for riding a school bus. This is also graduation day, and family members are invited to attend the graduation ceremony. For information or to en- roll your child in the Port Clinton Safety Town, call Cynthia Geiger at 419-663-

KIWANIS HONORS KATHY JO SCHWEITZER

Kathy Jo Schweitzer, past president of the Kiwanis Club of Port Clinton, was surprised at her recent Kiwanis meeting

by being honored twice for her dedicated service to her club, her community, Kiwanis and the children of the world.

Schweitzer was presented with the Ohio Kiwanis Legion of Honor Society Circle of Achievement Award by Ohio

District Kiwanis Foundation President Bob Williams (far left). Then, past district treasurer Vee Reifsnyder (far right)

read a letter sent by Ohio District Gov. William Snellgrove, and presented Schweitzer with the Governor’s Key of

Success Award and a key pin. She joined the Kiwanis Club of Port Clinton 25 years ago as the first woman member

and later became its first female president. At the upcoming June 2012 Kiwanis International Convention in New

Orleans where the theme is 25th Anniversary Women in Kiwanis, she will also be honored for becoming one of the first Kiwanis women in the world. George Wilber, her fiance’, attended and gave her flowers.

Taste: The nose is sweet, focused and pure with ripe blackberry, raspberry
and currant aromatics and an underlying sense of minerality. The palate is
classically styled with pretty fruit and ripe tannins. We used about 40% new oak
with this wine, mostly French with a tiny bit of Hungarian with a low to medium
toast to lift the fruit. The result is a delicious Cabernet. It’s a classically styled
Rutherford Cabernet notable for its faceted complexity, purity of fruit, and
outstanding balance. Of course the best is yet to come as this wine will age
gracefully over the next decade.

Taste: The nose is layered with orange blos-
som, lemon curd, and toasted almond aromatics
underpinned with spicy pear and apple aromas.
The palate is unctuous with creamy oak but lifted
and complex with ripe pear, pretty minerality and
honeysuckle notes. There is tremendous length to
this wine despite its youth, indicating there is more
here to come.
Taste: Intense aromas of dark plum, fresh cher-
ry, red raspberry and toasty spice dominate the
bouquet. It shows a bold mid-palate and complex
acidity. Beautiful oak couples with rich playful fruit
for a smooth and elegant wine that boasts a long,
velvety finish.
Taste: Pale, straw color with tints of green. Aro-
mas of citrus-fruit, melon and freshly cut grass
dominate the nose. Lively acidity up-front and
subtle vanilla complement the bright aromas.
With a great mouth feel and incredible clarity, this
wine finishes light, crisp, and clean.
Taste: Lot 250 has a lovely, peppery nose of
raspberries and plum skin. Saturated black cherry
and fresh acidity provide structure to this delicate
fruit bomb. With great fruit, acid, and a killer struc-
ture, this wine presents Napa in a great package.
Wicked-good.

Commissioner Jim Sass presents Principal Judy Peters with a proclamation designating May 20, 2012, as “Carroll School Day” in Ot- tawa County.

Building of Memories

On May 20, nearly 380 people wandered

the halls of Carroll School reminiscing

about days gone by, sharing a laugh or

meeting up with some old classmates.

“I never expected this many to come out,”

Alma Mater. Old class pictures, newsletters dating back to 1927, memory letters sent in by Judge Donald Wargowsky, Robert Moore, Paul Layman, Shirley LaCumsky and Mel Hoover lined the blackboards for people to enjoy. A video of memories also played throughout the day and people also had a chance to “share” some if there own. At the closing, OHHS Jazz Band en- tertained attendees. Everyone gathered outside and watched as the Boy Scouts from Troup No. 370 lowered the flag. I’m sure many happy memories were going through their heads. Closing comments were shared by Peters and a balloon release ended the wonderful day of celebrating 73 years of memories. — Carol Benner

said School Secretary Linda Dick. “It was so nice to see all the familiar faces coming through the doors.” The school hosted its “A Building of Memories” which was kicked off by Jen- nie Dornbusch, graduate of the school. Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass
5707 presented a Proclamation to Principal Judy Peters. Children from the school sang “America the Beautiful” (which was also sung at the 1939 dedication) under the di- rection of Jackie Seibert. Before traveling the halls, Ashley Auger, accompanied by Bonnie Daniels, sang the Carroll School

Camp NEOSA also pro- vides an opportunity for each camper to contribute to and receive from a group living experience, help with making their own decisions, participate in activities that stimulate creativity and experience an at- mosphere that fosters independence. Camp NEOSA is located on a 200-acre peninsula on 1,000-acre Leeville Lake in Carrolton, Ohio.

DECA sponsorship fundraising drive under way

It may be summer vacation for most students at PCHS, but those involved in DECA are busy actively seeking sponsor- ship donations. These donations will help send students to the Summer Leadership Retreat, held July 13-16, at FFA Camp Muskingum in Carrollton, Ohio. Students will also be raising money for the 2012-13 school year to help defray the costs of trav- el, registration and to help buy new DECA blazers worn at competitions. Last year, PCHS DECA students attended a conference in Philadelphia where stu-

dents learned team building skills, attend- ed workshops, and participated in mock business competitions. This year students would like to attend a conference in either Washington, DC or Chicago. Sponsor business names will be displayed on the back of a DECA T-shirt and sign boards, as well as being a busi- ness tax deduction. If you haven’t received a call or visit from one of the PCHS DECA members, interested donors may contact DECA Advisor Bill Hollister at 419-260- 9068 or go online to www.pccsd.net and

KERSTEN’S KORNER GETS SPECIAL VISITORS

Kersten’s Korner Nursery School recently had some special guests when the Toledo Zoo Educational Department came for a visit. Josh from the zoo brought three special friends with him for the children to see: a turtle, lizard and a guinea pig. During his talk, children learned about three different types of habitats animals live in: African savanna, ocean and rainforest. Josh brought some items for the children to touch such as skin from a monkey, a shark’s jaw, a stinger from a sting ray, puffer fish, an el- ephant ear and snake skin. He explained to the children how having these items allow people to know how they feel and work.

WOLCOTT KEEPER’S HOUSE

Local author on hand Saturday for book signing

Marblehead resident Nelda “Nel” Adcock will hold a book signing for her recently published children’s book, “My Firelands Adventure,” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June

9, at the Wolcott Keeper’s House, 9999 Bayshore Road, Marblehead. Adcock was inspired to write the book while volunteering at the Keep- er’s House annex and gift shop, and enjoying the aroma of apple scones being prepared next door on the Keeper’s House fireplace by fellow docent Ray Machar. She wove the idea of the tempting aroma into a story about Selima Wolcott, Benajah Wol- cott’s younger daughter, and a young Indian boy. Selima, who was unhappy about leaving her home and friends in Connecticut to go to the wild Fire- lands frontier, meets the young boy and shares an adventure. She learns a few things along the way, as will Nel’s young readers — the retired teacher admits hiding many interesting facts in the story.

While reading the book in several

area classrooms, she was further in- spired to write a play that the children can perform. She looks forward to sharing it with more classrooms. The book is illustrated by local art- ist David Schwan and the story and pictures will appeal to children be- yond the 7-10 age group at which it is aimed. Adcock, who has degrees from Capital University and Penn State, has taught in central Ohio, the Pana- ma Canal Zone and at the University

of Dayton. Adcock and her husband

Carl (“Fred”) are also quite adventur-

ous. They once drove all the way from

the Canal Zone to Ohio. The Keeper’s House is open 11 a.m.

to 3 p.m. Saturday for the book sign-

ing, fireplace cooking demonstra-

tions by Ray Machar and docent led

house tours. The regular weekday

open houses start Wednesday, June

8A Thursday, June 7, 2012 The Beacon Log Cabin series kicks off Sunday The Oak Harbor

Author Nel Adcock reads her book about a Firelands frontier child to school- children at the Wolcott Keeper’s House.

11, from 1 to 5 p.m. The book may be purchased at the Keeper’s House gift shop, the Lakeside book store, Ex Libris in Marblehead and soon at

Perry’s Monument gift shop. Visit www.thekeepershouse.org for information about the Keeper’s House.

Local Jerry Davenport performs at

first Riverfront Live! of the season

Check out Jerry Davenport live at the season’s first Riverfront Live! under the canopy on North Jeffer- son Street. The free summer concert series is held on Friday evenings in downtown Port Clinton. The Portage River is the backdrop for some fan- tastic entertainers. Davenport is a native of Catawba Is-

land. He is an artist and a songwriter.

His songs reflect his lifelong experi- ences of growing up near the shores of Lake Erie, some nostalgic, some funny. Songs like “Leaving an Island in My Wake,” “APB at PIB” and “We Did Everything That Ends in ‘ing’ but Fish,” are a few. He also has written many a love song and a few country songs such as “You Look Stupid in a Cowboy Hat.” He has recently written

a song called “Our Old Lyman” about his memories of Lake Erie adventures on his dad’s Lyman. The free Riverfront Live! outdoor summer music program is sponsored by Main Street Port Clinton. For a complete schedule of performers for the 2012 season, go to www.historic- portclinton.com.

JAM Festival comes to PC

Terra State Community College presents a unique festival experience to Northwest Ohio on June 15-16. With the launch of Terra’s new Jazz and American Music Studies degree program in the fall, this new summer festival celebrates American music styles from 1920-today with featured bands from around the area and nu- merous guest artists. “There are so many musical genres to choose from that have come from the birth of jazz and evolved into to- day’s pop music that it’s hard to cap- ture all of the styles in just one week- end,” said Terra’s rock ’n’ roll history instructor, John Cipiti. “With our in- augural festival, we are primarily fo- cusing our attention on jazz, rock, R&B, blues and funk this year, and look forward to focusing on many other styles such as gospel, country, folk, musical theater and more in the coming years.” The Jazz and American Music Fes- tival features festival headliner Doug Johns, funk bassist from Cleveland. Earning rave reviews from Bass Play- er Magazine as well as the bass com- munity, Johns is an accomplished bass player, composer, clinician and bandleader. His raw presence, en- ergy and all-around crowd-wowing prowess can be heard on numerous recordings and stages. Believing that a good musician sur- rounds himself with great musicians, Johns has had the privilege of work- ing with such icons as Buddy Miles, Chuck Rainey, Grammy-winning producer Aaron Lindsey, and many others.

FRIDAY, JUNE 15

The festival opens with the “JAZZ LEGENDS” concert on at 7:30 p.m. at the Port Clinton Performing Arts Center in Port Clinton. The concert is presented by the Terra State Jazz Band under the direction of Jeff Blanchard and a special jazz tribute group called the Regional Jazz All Stars featuring Keith Barber (guitar), Pete Ford (pi- ano/organ), Linda Jackson (vocals), Brian Lang (saxophone), Doug Neel (trombone/bass), Michael Shirtz (piano/vocals) and Elijah Vazquez (drums). This concert will be the per- fect concert for both Big Band lovers and a walk down memory lane to the jazz legends of the 20th century who helped shaped our American music. Tickets for Friday’s concert are $8 at the door.

SATURDAY, JUNE 16

‘Commitment to Excellence’ begins with training

Elmwood Communities has now grown their Elmwood team to an amazing 700+ employees. This includes all employees at Elmwood Healthcare Center at The Spring’s Specialty/ LTAC (Long-Term Acute Care) Hospital; Skilled Nursing and Respiratory Nursing units on the West cam- pus in Green Springs; Elmwood Nursing Home and Elm- wood Assisted Living at The Springs-East campus; Elm- wood’s Assisted Living communities in Tiffin, Fremont, and New Bremen; and Wynn-Reeth, Inc. (in association with Elmwood Centers in Green Springs. Due to new programs and services, over 100 new em- ployees have joined the Elmwood team since early 2011. Kathy Hunt, owner and CEO of Elmwood Communi- ties feels this is quite an achievement for the family-owned company that got its start in Green Springs, Ohio in 1974. “Having over 700 employees throughout our Ohio facili- ties is just amazing! But ensuring that each and every one of our employees knows and performs what is expected of them is the real challenge!” stated Hunt. “That is why we have some great employee training programs in place.” Elmwood at The Springs Healthcare Center’s “Com- mitment-To-Excellence” Mentor Program is designed to help welcome, train, and nurture new employees for all job classifications. This hands-on, orientation program has helped new employees adjust more easily to their new position, in turn, helping them to gain self-confidence

and lessen their nervousness and insecurities that may come with a new job. The individual, one-on-one train- ing assures that all new employees receive consistent and thorough training, so everyone knows what is expected of them and how to fulfill each job requirement. Elmwood recently re-certified 13 current mentors, all State Tested Nursing Assistants (STNA). These mentors will continue to be the “Go-To” employees for new direct care staff in Elmwood’s Skilled Nursing Units. For information, visit www.elmwoodcommunities.com

Spencer joins Ottawa County Health Dept.

The Ottawa County Health Department has wel- comed Jessica Spencer, of Port Clinton, to its nursing staff. Spencer began work Feb. 21, concentrating her efforts in the home health care division. “I love the elderly, geriatric pa- tients,” said Spencer, noting regu- lar visits can often forge special bonds. Diane Kokinda, Director of Nursing, said Spencer underwent an orientation period in which she was teamed with a fellow reg- istered nurse. She now makes the health care visits on her own. Spencer’s position with the

Firelands recognized for environmental practices

Firelands Regional Medical Center was recently recog- nized with the Melvin Creeley Environmental Leadership Award. Awarded by the Ohio Hospital Association. Fire- lands was one of 10 hospitals in Ohio to be recognized for promoting sound environmental practices through environmental stewardship and exemplifying the best practices for other hospitals to follow. “Firelands is excited to be recognized for our efforts in being more environmentally friendly,” said Richard Brown, Director of Environmental Services at Firelands Regional Medical Center. “In 2011 alone, Firelands Re- gional Medical Center recycled over 74 tons of cardboard/ plastic/glass and 81 tons of paper.” The award is named after the retired president and CEO

of East Liverpool City Hospital, Melvin Creeley, who chaired OHA’s Environmental Leadership Council from its inception in 2001 and 2010. As an ENERGY STAR partner, OHA is also working to protect the environment. OHA’s Team Green is collecting electronics such as com- puters, CDs, radios and other electronic devices to be re- cycled. OHA recently received the Ohio Alliance for the Environment Award from the Environmental Education Council of Ohio, which honors a business or industry that is dedicated to fostering a climate of cooperation for re- solving environmental issues. And in an initiative begun last year, the OHA Energy Program is assisting hospitals to become more energy efficient.

Alzheimer’s group offers professional development

The Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, is hosting the professional development program, “Ethi- cal Decisions, Spirituality and Dementia,” from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, June 29, at Magruder Hospital, 615 Fulton St., Port Clinton. This half-day workshop will help spiritual leaders of faith-based communities and other in- terested persons to increase their knowledge of dementia and reach out more effectively to people with memory loss disorders and their families. For many people with Alzheimer’s disease, participating in spiritual practices was an integral part of their younger years. Continued spiritual support throughout the course of the disease can provide a great deal of comfort and meaning to these people and their families. The program has been approved for three contact hours of continuing professional education. The registration fee is $25, payable at the door. Participants can feel free to bring their breakfast or lunch. Light refreshments will be served. To register, call 800-272-3900.

Pair of Lakers earn first-team honors in the TAAC

BY YANEEK SMITH

After a strong finish to their season, the Danbury Lakers saw two players earn-first team honors in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference (TAAC) last week. Seniors Lucas Kennedy and Cory Schenk were both named to the first team while se- nior Dalton Chapman and freshman Chase Botson earned second-team honors. Senior pitcher Brandon Burke earned honorable- mention status. “It was very well-deserved,” said Danbury head coach Adam Steinbrick. “You can’t vote for your own (players), so you’ve got to have the respect of the other coaches. It’s a strong conference.” The Lakers, who had a 12-13 overall record and a 5-7 mark in the TAAC, finished the season on a hot streak, going 9-4 over the season’s final 13 games. Danbury’s season ended in the sectional tournament when the Lakers fell, 4-1 to Toledo Christian. The Lakers will lose six seniors, Chapman, Burke, Kennedy, Schenk, Caleb Helline and John Bunce, a group that has accomplished quite a bit in its time. They won 49 games in their four-year run, a school record, and won a sectional title last season. Steinbrick summed up what the group has meant to the program. “They’ve just done a tremendous job and they’re going to be dearly missed. They’ve set some kids for our young kids to follow and we’re excited about the future with our numbers and what’s coming up. “We had 10 freshman of our 24 kids in the program; a bunch of young kids will get an opportunity next year.”

DIVISION II TRACK & FIELD STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

Dunn gets two top 10 finishes

BY YANEEK SMITH

Over the weekend, Port Clinton senior Emaleigh Dunn competed in the Divi- sion II Track & Field Championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Co- lumbus, finishing seventh in the discus and ninth in the shot put. In the discus, Dunn had a throw of 123 feet, 4 inches to go with a 40-04.50 toss in the shot put, an impressive feat that will sustain her status in school history as one of Port Clinton’s top performers. It was actually the second consecutive season in which she advanced to Colum- bus. Last year, Dunn finished 11th in the shot put (38-05.50) while teammate Al- lie Reynolds came in second in the discus

(129-09).

Needless to say, it’s been quite a year for Dunn, who was the SBC Champion in the shot put and the second-place fin- isher in the discus. A number of other area competitors fared well at the state meet, led by Hu-

ron senior Treyvon Matthews, who won the title in the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.30 and Bellevue’s Matt Rowland repeated as champion in the pole vault (16-01.00). Genoa’s Logan Bryer was sec- ond in the discus (177-04) and Perkins’ Aaron Mawhirter was fourth, finishing with a throw of 166-03 while teammate Michael Ebert was fourth in the shot put

(55-05.75).

Clyde senior Adam Turner was sixth in the 400 (49.63), Perkins senior Bill Fial was sixth in the 300 hurdles (40.09), Clyde’s Ben Wollenslegel was ninth in the high jump (6-02.00) and Edison’s Stephen Shephard was 13th in the 1600 (4:46.94). In the pole vault, Huron’s Ma- son Majoy finished 11th and Bellevue’s Travis Brake was 12th. Edison and Perkins’ 4x800 relay teams finished third and eighth, respectively. The Chargers quartet of Dallas Risner, Lucas Wallace, Luke Pierce and Stephen Shephard ran a time of 8:02.52 and the

Pirate squad of Michael Decker, Chris Johnson, Cory Pfanner and Cody Priebe finished in 8:06.28. Clyde’s 4x400 relay team of Alex Webber, Collin Rieman, Isaac Bouyack and Turner was 13th (3:29.66) and Perkins’ 4x200 team of Dale Irby, Mitch Benkey, Austin Sparks and Fial was 14th (1:32.13). On the girls side, Vermilion’s 4x200 me- ter relay team of AuBree LaForce, Han- nah Bartlome, Mallory Morris and Emily Cunningham (1:41.79) and the 4x100 re- lay squad of the same members was sec- ond (48.98). Cunningham also finished third in the 200, running a time of 25.63 and Bartlome was second in the high jump with a leap of 5-04.00. As a team, the Sailors were fourth, finishing with 33 points. Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary was first with 55 points, followed by Colum- bus Eastmoor Academy (46) and Day- ton Cahminade-Julienne (43). The Lady ‘Skins, because of the efforts of Dunn, finished tied for 58th with two points.

PCHS senior makes Cincinnati cheer team

Emily Ochs, daughter of Paul and Tina Ochs, was recently chosen as a member of the University of Cincinnati’s Black Var- sity Cheerleading Team for the 2012-2013 season. Ochs was selected from a field of more than 50 competitors who tried out for the upcoming season. The competitive three- day tryout process held at UC was direct- ed by UC head cheerleading coach, Tabby Fagan, her staff and other judges. The team tryouts included interviews, tum- bling and cheer partner stunting drills, along with other related physical endur- ance testing. “I am thrilled to be chosen as a mem-

ber of the varsity cheerleading team at

UC and I am also excited to be a student- athlete representative for the University,” Ochs said. “Not only does the cheer team perform at UC’s football and basketball games, but it also makes appearances in support of many other university-related functions. “in order to cheer at the NCAA Division I collegiate level, I owe a lot to the training and advice I have received over the years from my Port Clinton High School cheer advisors and my competitive cheer coach- es at Champion Cheer and Tumble Center in Castalia, Ohio.” Ochs, who will graduate from PCHS in June, will be an entering UC in the fall and plans to major in Dietetics.

Edgewood Manor celebrates honors

Edgewood Manor hosted a cel- ebration for the staff and com- munity to recognize the facility’s achievements of the past year. There were three major awards Edgewood received for outstand- ing care in their facility. On hand to present the prestigious awards were members of the corporate management team from Cov- enant Care. In addition to Edge- wood Manor, Covenant Care owns and operates 54 skilled nursing and rehabilitation cen- ters across the United States. Kaye Lipstraw, Director of Nursing, and her team of nurses won the award for Clinical Excel- lence. This award was imple- mented nine years ago and Edge- wood Manor has consecutively been awarded this honor since its inception. To qualify for this award, a facility must meet sev- eral clinical standards of excel- lence to ensure the highest level of quality care for the residents. The Edgewood team, lead by Administrator, Lori Lieb-Opfer

and Kaye Lipstraw, DON, was recognized for its Operational Excellence. In addition to the rigorous guidelines to achieve Clinical Excellence, the team at Edgewood Manor has exceeded all expectations of financial re- sponsibility, excellent Federal and State Survey outcomes, low em- ployee turnover, positive employ- ee relations, and being a valuable resource to their community. Receiving individual recog- nition for her hard work and dedication to her staff and her residents at Edgewood Manor, is Lori Lieb-Opfer. Opfer who is a Licensed Nursing Home Ad- ministrator and the Executive Director of the facility received CEO Designation. This desig- nation is only awarded to those exceeding all expectations and with a personal recommendation from the corporate staff. Mark Knepper, Director of Operations for the Ohio Covenant Care Fa- cilities presented Lori Opfer with this prestigious Covenant Care

Automatic investing can pay off for you

To achieve investment suc- cess, you don’t have to start out with a huge sum or “get lucky” by picking “hot” stocks. In fact, very few people actually travel those two routes. But in working toward your investment goals, you need to be persistent — and one of the best ways to demon- strate that persistence is to invest automatically. How do you become an “auto- matic” investor? You simply need to have your bank automatically move money each month from a checking or savings account into the investments of your choice. When you’re first starting out in the working world, you may not be able to afford much, but any amount — even if it’s just $50 or $100 a month — will be

valuable. Then, as your career progresses and your income rises, you can gradually increase your monthly contributions. By becoming an automatic investor, you can gain some key benefits, including these:

Discipline — Many people think about investing but decide to wait until they have “a little extra cash.” Before they realize it, they’ve used the money for other purposes. When you invest automatically, you’re essentially taking a spending decision “out of your hands.” And as you see your accounts grow over time, your investment discipline will be self-reinforcing. Long-term focus — There’s never any shortage of events — political crises, economic down-

turns, natural disasters — that cause investors to take a “time- out” from investing. Yet if you head to the investment sidelines, even for a short while, you might miss out on some good opportu- nities. By investing automatically each month, you’ll maintain a long-term focus. Potential for reduced invest- ment costs — If you invest the same amount of money each month into the same invest- ments, you’ll automatically be a “smart shopper.” When prices drop, your monthly investment will buy more shares, and when prices rise, you’ll buy fewer shares — just as you’d prob- ably buy less of anything when prices are high. Over time, this type of systematic investment

typically results in lower costs per share. Furthermore, when you invest systematically, you’re less likely to constantly buy and sell investments in an effort to boost your returns. This type of frequent trading is often inef- fective — and it can raise your overall investment costs with potential fees, commissions and taxes. (Keep in mind, though, that systematic investing does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss. Also, you’ll need the financial resources available to keep investing through up and down markets.) Clearly, automatic investing offers some major advantages to you as you seek to build wealth. Of course, if you’re contributing to a 401(k) or other employer-

sponsored retirement plan, you’re already automatically investing because money is taken out of your paycheck at regu- lar intervals to go toward the investments you’ve chosen in your plan. But by employing automatic investing techniques to other vehicles, such as an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can continue your progress toward your long-term goals, including retirement. So, do what it takes to become an automatic investor. It’s easy, it’s smart — and it can help you work toward the type of future you’ve envisioned.
