Helen Lippert hospitalized

Helen Lippert, 89, Huron County’s grand dame of the Republican Party, was reported in guarded condition in the intensive care unit of Fisher-Titus Memorial Hospital this morning after being rushed to the hospital suffering from chest pains and shortness of breath.

A hospital spokesman said Mrs. Lippert was revived in the hospital’s emergency room after she had stopped breathing in the ambulance. She was reported to have a good pulse this morning after being in critical condition earlier.

Mrs. Lippert has been active in community affairs since she began working for the Sheriff’s Department many years ago. She was also a city auditor for many years.

“What hasn’t she done,” asked Huron County Commissioner Thomas Carabin. “She is Mrs. Republican.” Carabin said she has been extremely active in the Republican Party and in the McKinley Club.

She is credited with being instrumental in raising funds to create the Firelands Branch of Bowling Green State University.

Sheriff John Borgia says he won’t run for House

Huron County Sheriff John Borgia has decided against running for the newly-created 90th Ohio House of Representatives seat.

Borgia, a Republican, indicated an interest in the seat in October, when the state Apportionment Board re-drew Ohio’s legislative boundaries, moving Huron County out of the 72nd House District and placing in with Crawford County to form the 90th District.

No incumbent representatives lives in the new district. Voters will decide who will fill the new post in the election this year.

Ice rink opens

MONROEVILLE – Ice skaters now have a choice of two rinks at Marsh Field – for ice hockey and speed skating or figure skating – thanks to the Monroeville Community Affairs Committee. And today may be the first day for the new skating program here.

The softball diamond has been flooded for ice hockey and speed skating while figure skaters and children will be able to skate on the ice covering the concrete area of the shelter pavilion. Both sites, which have been about three inches of ice, also have lights for night skating.

Skating is free but donations from firms and individuals will be accepted, said Donald Alberts Sr., chairman of the committee.
