The second of two summer Sandusky Bay Barge parties is scheduled for this Saturday, and the promoter of the boatfest at the sandbar, Shaun Bickley, returns as a guest this week on "Between the Lines" at 1 p.m. Thursday.
Joining Shaun on the program will be his father, Joel, 67, and his son, Colt, 16.
All three Bickleys ran aground during the first barge party. Shaun and Colt both received citations from state liquor control agents, although the agency has refused to release any information regarding the citations. Joel Bickley was cited by the U.S. Coast Guard, but a report of that incident also has been withheld from the public.
The Ohio public records law requires government agencies to release incident reports promptly after taking official action, but the agencies have not complied with the requirement. The state's action at the June 30 barge party threatened to shut down the second one. But Shaun Bickley announced last week the event would happen as scheduled, and be expanded to two stages.
The three Bickleys program will be shown live and the audience is encouraged to ask questions from the interactive chatroom.
Also this week, Funcoast.com Magazine editor Ashley Bethard makes her last appearance on the program.
