When a plane crashed in a field near Willard, photographer Angie Wilhelm and I made the hour-long trek to the scene.
By the time we arrived, everyone was gone. Even the pilot and his passenger had been taken to the hospital after escaping with only a few bumps and bruises.
But where was the plane?
Santa Claus has a tough job keeping kids and their parents happy, but he tries.
It helps that there's a certain amount of tradition in how to do the job. When Santa goes on duty at 5 p.m. at the Cookie House in downtown Sandusky, sometimes with Mrs. Claus to help him, the kids who come to see him know they'll be asked if they've been good and what they want for Christmas.
Q: Jason, I saw in a recent column that the West End Bypass is scheduled to start construction in 2011. Can you provide some updated info? I though there were some variations to the design, possible legal challenges, Eminent Domain issues, etc. Is the plan finalized including a timeline and what will the finished product will look like? Thanks.
Sandusky International has been sold.
Wisconsin-based MetalTek International completed a deal to purchase the downtown foundry on Friday, officials from both sides said.
The move creates "the very real possibility" to bring more jobs to the city, said Ed Ryan, Sandusky International's president.
Executives at MetalTek feel the same way.
About two dozen downtown merchants and restaurants are competing in the contest and offering paper ballots to customers, who are invited to cast their ballots at Mr. Smith's Coffee House, Erik's Clothing for Men or Midnight Moon. One of the people taking time to cast a ballot will win dinner for two at the Water Street Bar & Grille.
