Jim McQuiston has been featured several times in the past few years, mainly with his ties to the "Curse of Oak Island." He's followed the issue long before the made-for-TV series. Last Sunday, he was featured on the front page concerning the erosion problems he and others have had along Lake Erie — his cottage is in North East. Storage tanks were installed in the 1970s, but those tanks have since sunk. Wind and high waves are his biggest concerns.
I saw Gary Merkle at the Presque Isle Downs for the opening of horse racing. They have made some major improvements on the scoreboard.
Always nice to see ex-throwing coach (for track) Mike Roden at Corry's meets. He talks with the throwers but claims he's not there to coach, just as inspiration. He was a treasurer during his coaching days.
Corry grad Ned Bailey (see photo) was umpiring softball in Corry on both Tuesday and Thursday. It's his seventh season umpiring and he's been a wrestling official for 35 years. Bailey was an outstanding wrestler at CAHS before graduating in 1983.
The PIAA has approved high school wrestling for girls. Not sure about it in Corry.
Congrats to the Corry unified track and field team for finishing in second place at the county meet.
Happy 55th anniversary to Jeanne and Bill Mancino who were married in May of 1968.
Cody Rose has become Code-Man assisting on Union City softball and baseball broadcasts.
It was nice to see Jim and Rose Bennett there cheering on the Lady Beavers softball team.
There is a celebration of life event today for Henry Stec at the Garland Firehall from 2 to 4 p.m. He passed away on March 29.
I see that the professional American Cornhole League is in Erie this weekend at the Bayfront Convention Center and Erie Insurance Arena. Some portions will be televised.
