Toast everybody involved with this year's third annual Dam Festival in Monroeville. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to put on a festival, and we bet it won't be long before organizers start working on next year's event. The only glitch this year was the weather, but we all know there's nothing you can do about Mother Nature. Roast all of the people who continue to drop off junk on the weekends at the Clothing Bank in Norwalk. Many of the items left are good, but are ruined when it rains like it did this past weekend. Much of the stuff is just left over from garage sales. If you are not sure, call the Clothing Bank at (419) 668-6977 and ask for Jean Row. She'll let you know if they can use the items.

It's going to be a tough summer for many of us. Some so-called experts are saying that gas might hit $5 a gallon before it's over, and costs for other things are going up, too. But you've worked hard for a year and feel you have a right to a nice little vacation to someplace good for you and good for the wife and kids, too. Is there such a place close by? Yes indeed. They call it South Bass Island, a place that almost everyone has heard of, but surprisingly few have ever visited. I was up there just recently, and found once again that it's a great place to visit for a day or a week. To get there I drove up to Ohio 2, crossed Sandusky Bay, and turned north on Ohio 53. At the tip of Catawba Island along 53 lies the Miller Boat Line, a ferry line that's been there for many years. That was my destination. It's boats are big enough to take an astonishing number of cars and even semi-trucks over to South Bass.
