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.

The Press asked Northwood City Council candidates a series of questions to help the public decide who to vote for in the Nov. 3 election. Here is what they had to say:

Offer one idea that would help spur economic development in Northwood:

James D. Barton (incumbent):
There are two types of economic development – commercial/industrial development and attracting residents to live in Northwood – both of which are critical to future development. Development of the Great Eastern Shopping Plaza as a focal/gathering place is one way to spur economic development. Retail businesses that provide services to people who live and work in Northwood will promote development up and down Woodville Road. Future ideas include festivals and a Farmer’s Market to bring people in and a variety of restaurants will add to the sense of community.

Northwood will see a new mayor for the first time in 15 years. City councilmen Randy Kozina and Edward Schimmel are the mayoral candidates seeking voter support in the Nov. 3 election. The Press asked the candidates questions to help voters decide who they want to be the next mayor. Here is what they had to say:

What will be your priorities if you are elected mayor?

Randy Kozina:
My first priority is to pursue every legal avenue to clean up abandoned properties and buildings. The duration from complaint to compliance must be streamlined to enable the situation to be resolved much quicker. While many of us want the Woodville Mall site and other abandoned buildings to be returned to their original use, it won’t always be feasible. We must also force owners to remove building at their expense, not taxpayers’, if possible.

Who doesn’t love some time at the spa, especially when dealing with aches and pains or injuries?

David Williams, of Curtice, has designed a spa on wheels designed to provide comforting and therapeutic hot or cold therapy to for horses.

“We can switch from cold temperature of 37 degrees to hot water in a matter of three seconds,” Williams said.

Cold water therapy is designed to address soft tissue inflammations; abscesses might require warm or hot water treatments. Pulled tendons and sprains are always a concern with a competitor. Rotating treatment is also an option; depending upon a regimen suggested by a veterinarian, a horse can be treated with hot water, then go on a treadmill and then finish up a treatment with cold water.
