U.S. Marine Corps pilot Sarah Deal will be the guest speaker at the Genoa Memorial Day ceremony at the Clay Township Cemetery, sponsored by Genoa American Legion.

Lt. Col. Deal, the first female pilot in the corps, is a Pemberville native and 1987 Eastwood High School graduate who joined the Marines in 1992 during her summer break from Kent State University. After studying aerospace flight technology, she earned her commercial and private pilot’s license and is a certified flight instructor.

Larry and Susie Davenport hope to save seniors at Cardinal Stritch High School both time and money with the donation they recently made to their alma mater.

The couple, together with their son, Adam, are underwriting a complete assessment program to help determine the college, major and degree program that best fit each student.

In September of this year, Woodmore High School history teacher Courtney Reiner will be taking a trip to Washington D.C. to escort a veteran on an Honor Flight.

Reiner heard of someone in Woodville taking part in Honor Flight, and she decided that she, too, wanted to give back to the veterans.

Friends, family detail Atwaters’ troubled marriage

As the investigation into the murder/suicide of an Oak Harbor family focused on the question, why, authorities uncovered a tale of a marriage that had broken down well before it turned tragically fatal.

The case of the deaths of Alan and Dawn Atwater and their three children remains under investigation, but a report released last week by the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department paints a picture of desperation: Alan, 31, telling friends and family he wanted to keep the marriage intact but asking a younger man to sleep with his wife; Dawn, 30, looking to end the marriage to a domineering man who loved their children and confiding to friends he had been abusive to her.

It’s called the “Biggest Week in American Birding,” and for good reason.

The second annual event, which will be held May 5-15 at the Black Swamp Bird Observatory near Oak Harbor, will bring thousands of birding enthusiasts and millions of dollars into the BSBO and to Northwest Ohio, according to Kim Kaufman, executive director of the BSBO.
