On this dreary 8th day of February, Miller Boat Line ended its special four-day operations between Put-in-Bay and Catawba. Captain Matt Miller and trusty crew returned the M.V. South Bass to home port after the last cars and passengers disembarked at the Lime Kiln Dock on South Bass Island at 4:15pm. Thirty minutes later, after a smooth ride through a calm Lake Erie, the vessel was secured at the Miller Docks. “Only Mother Nature can answer the question when we’ll run again,” said Captain Miller. Put-in-Bay Daily™ expresses sincere gratitude to Miller Boat Line, Captain Miller, and the devoted crew for the courtesy of today’s ride-along. Click photos for large view.
Head coach Craig Shuffeneker’s dynamic basketball team played their hearts out and deserve many accolades in spite of losing the season closer to the First Baptist Sabres from Elyria, Ohio. Seniors Jessica Krueger, Ian Ladd, and Meredith Engel were recognized for their athleticism and excellent teamwork. The Put-in-Bay School Cheerleaders presented a superb number during half-time, and island fans expressed much appreciation for a satisfying season.
