Boogie-woogie artist Live in the House in Pemberville
Matthew Ball, who is fast becoming Detroit’s premier boogie-woogie artists, will take the stage Saturday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. for the next show in the Pemberville Opera House’s “Live in the House” series.

Ball got his start in jazz in 2001 after he attended a hometown boogie-woogie festival. He was so awestruck by the performances there that he left his career as an attorney to become a blues and boogie-woogie performing artist.

With a little help from Bob Seeley, from boogie's hall of fame, Ball joined the ranks of iconic blues masters in 2005 when headlining at the exclusive Arches Piano Stage in Cincinnati.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will present, “Over the Top,” a wacky and whimsical circus spectacular Nov. 11-15 at the Lucas County Arena in Toledo.

Audiences will experience maniacal mayhem as Ringmaster Chuck Wagner and clown eccentric Tom Dougherty compete for control of a magical top hat that brings to life their fantastical imaginations.

From the silliness evoked by the clown to the stupendous spectacle conjured by the Ringmaster, Over the Top provides excitement for the whole family. Dogs fly, Asian elephants skip, hop and groove and one courageous man stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers, all at the 138th Edition of The Greatest Show on Earth.


Lake and Ottawa Hills will be the first high school teams to take the ice for a game at the new $105 million Lucas County Arena, home of the Toledo Walleye.

Lake, a club team, will face the Green Bears from 12-2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22. The game will not count on the win-loss records of either team, who compete in the Blue Division of the Northwest Hockey Conference.

"The Walleye came to our league last year and asked if anybody was interested in doing it," Lake coach Craig Horvath said. "Nobody did anything or said anything. It was kind of quiet. The Walleye wanted us to sell 250 tickets and it would be a free game for us. It was a fundraiser for us. If you go right now to the Toledo Walleye to buy tickets, you're going to buy $15 tickets. You can buy one from me for $15 and Lake (hockey) gets to keep $5 for every ticket sold, up until Nov. 22."
