Thumbs UP to Jamie Steinemann for taking care of the business end of the baton at Firelands Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Carl Topilow keeps the music in tune, but Steinemann directs behind the scenes, making sure the money comes in and the publicity goes out -- and Sandusky and environs gets to keep a first-rate bit of art and culture.
Thumbs UP to Care and Share's renovated headquarters, with a bigger, cleaner, brighter space that lets people seeking help do so with pride and dignity intact.
Thumbs UP to "Live Here, Buy Here," the effort by Ottawa County businesses to promote local shopping. It's about more than money, though -- it's about knowing and appreciating what makes your community unique.
