Thumbs UP to Port Clinton filmmaker Thomas Brown, who has turned his filmmaking talents toward helping schools battle bullies. He and cameraman David Kruse hope to confront the bullies and help their victims stand up.

“Any school that bothers to address the issue is safer than those who don’t,” Brown said.

Thumbs UP to the Perkins High School students who decided to turn a school project into a way to help their community look forward. It could be their efforts become part of a plan to build a geographical and social “center” to Perkins Township; part of what they did was to sound out public support for sidewalks along the Milan Road strip. The Register turned its weekly opinion-page poll over to the project for a week; we hope that yielded some information for the students to take to township trustees. In any event, these kids have contributed to their community’s future.

Thumbs DOWN to the seemingly indifferent police work in the Odell Thurman assault case at Kalahari. So someone who sort of looked like him was seen entering his lady friend’s room at the resort the day Thurman was accused of punching a guy ... while Thurman was supposed to have been in Georgia ... and now there’s another suspect, who may have been supplied by Thurman’s lawyer. Well, at least the state news wires had some fun with it.
