Q: Dear Mailbag, I noticed only three of the Republican candidates for president, Gingrich, Perry and Romney, made the Dec. 7 filing deadline for the Ohio primary ballot. Does that mean the others won't be on the ballot in March? - Sarah in Sandusky
Eleven candidates sought seats on the Sandusky City Commission in 2003, when voter turnout in Erie County was about 44 percent, instead of the anticipated 30 percent. The city commission race was lauded as one of the main reasons for the spike in a nonpresidential year.
A stolen car driven by a 16-year-old Sandusky boy smashed into a parked SUV Saturday during a high-speed police chase in the 900 block of Wayne St.
But the boy wasn't done. Apparently uninjured, he jumped out and led police on a 10-minute foot chase.
Police set up a perimeter and brought out Sandusky police dog Justice, who tracked the boy to a shed behind 908 Hancock St.
