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."


It’s a Halloween tradition - the fifth annual Tombstone Derby will be rolling through Elmore Saturday Oct. 24.

This year, even more family-fun filled excitement is being planned with the addition of three new fun events. The Elmore Area Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event, has added a “Pet Costume Contest” to the calendar of events. Everyone is being invited to bring his or her favorite pet dressed up especially for Halloween. A “People’s
Choice” and “Scariest Costume” award will be given to the winning contestants. There is no cost to enter the contest. 

The “Parade of Fools,” which has been a stalwart of the Tombstone Derby since its inception, will have a few more “goulash” twists added to it. This year, kids’ battery-operated cars, pets and anyone else who wishes to participate will join the featured motorized caskets racers as they parade through the village.
