On Oct. 2, 2015, freshman students from local schools were bused to the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry to take part in the second annual Ottawa County Career Showcase.

The event, conducted by the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation and sponsored by the Ottawa County Business Advisory Council, was part of National Manufacturing Month – celebrated in October.

This year, over 600 freshman students from Ottawa County schools (where Camp Perry is located) attended the showcase. The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) was proud to serve as participant and host at last year’s inaugural event as well as during this year’s showcase, which is meant to encourage workforce development, career preparation and skilled-trade opportunities for the next workforce generation.

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.

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.
