Eight candidates for seats on the Woodmore school board introduced themselves to the district Wednesday before a nearly-packed cafetorium at the PreK-8 Building in Woodville, offering their views on issues confronting the district.

Eight of nine candidates, incumbents Corinna Bench, Julie Bowman, Daniel Hoppe and Steve Huss, and challengers Cara Brown, Sam Preston, Kelly O’Connor and James Kamman, were present. Another challenger, Sean Rizor, had been deployed as a Red Cross volunteer to South Carolina and was unable to attend.

Candidates were allotted two minutes each to answer two pre-determined questions:

• What do you see as the opportunities and challenges at Woodmore Local Schools and why?

The Lake equestrian team won its sixth consecutive Division 2 Ohio Interscholastic Horsemanship Association state championship on Oct. 10 at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon.

Lake scored 265 points to outdistance runner-up Delta (156) and third place Mohawk (76).

This years’ Lake team members are junior Hannah Johns (horse Bubba), freshman Clair Johns (Oakley), senior Lauren Nissen (Alex), senior Taylor Barndt (Sassy), junior Hannah Duty (Bill), and sophomore Trent Graham (Snickers). They are coached by Jenna Workman, a 2010 Lake graduate who was also on a state championship team.

"These kids work extremely hard all year long on the care and training of their horses. The team has great support from all our parents and grandparents," said Connie Workman, OIHA district director who was Lakes coach when her daughter, Jenna, participated on the Lake team.

Candidates for a seat on the Lake Township Board of Trustees and for the fiscal officer’s post say their candidacies offer voters a needed choice and different perspective in the township administrative offices.

Michael Evanoff, Meadowview Lane, Ken Gilsdorf, Oak Court, and Matthew Schober, Luckey Road,
are vying for the trustee seat held by four-term board member, Melanie Bowen, who is not seeking re-election.

Schober, who’s served on the township’s zoning commission, said his decision to run isn’t based on an overriding issue so much as a sense of responsibility to the township.

“I feel it’s my turn to step up and do my part,” he said, adding his presence on the board would bolster representation from the non-incorporated areas of the township.

Come be a part of Open Public Shooting at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) world-class air gun facilities in Camp Perry, Port Clinton. All ages and genders are welcome and urged to take a shot (or two or three) at the rousing world of air rifle and air pistol marksmanship from our safe and fun indoor ranges.

“Open Public Shooting at the air range is an enjoyable evening for many different groups,” said Lue Sherman, North Competition Center coordinator. “We have a great staff of qualified coaches on hand to make everyone feel comfortable.”

Sherman can often be seen helping range-goers during Open Public nights, along with other qualified CMP staff members from various backgrounds and firearm experience – including World Cup athletes, college athletes, military members and certified coaches through NRA and USA shooting.
