This is a perfect summer’s day at Put-in-Bay!

143 PM EDT Jul 2 2022

High pressure will settle across the eastern Great Lakes region through the rest of the weekend. This high will slide east on Monday and allow a warm front to lift north through the area.  The cold front has cleared the forecast area and high pressure is settling in nicely this afternoon. Some mid level clouds will enter from the southwest tonight and perhaps keep temperatures up a little bit with more lower 60s for lows than if the area were completely clear. The clouds will move out of the region late tonight and Sunday will be dry and mostly clear with winds out of the northeast to east. High temperatures will be akin to today with upper 70s east to upper 80s west.

The Village of Put-in-Bay settles into a calm and relaxing morning on a Sunday.  People mill about with coffee cups, fishers head to the Lake, and boaters prepare for outbound travel.  Golf carts line Delaware Street, where post-breakfast shopping takes place. Time to board the Tour Train! And one especially cheerful couple celebrates marriage at the Historic Park Hotel!

Mr. Mangas released the following statement:

Put-in-Bay School and Community:

I am so excited to be a part of the Put-in-Bay community and school system.  This is a position I first dreamed about four years ago when my family, along with our foreign exchange student from Sweden, visited the island.  Mr. Poe was very generous and gave my family a tour of the school.  When we left the building, I told my wife this is the only place I would ever leave Ottoville to go to–and here I am.

I want the Put-in-Bay staff to know that I am not a change agent.  I have heard many good things about the students and staff here, and I just want to be a part of it.  I am here to work WITH all of you.  I am eager to meet all the students and staff, and to start memorizing all those names.  My door will always be open.

I come to this community from Ottoville, Ohio, a small town in Putnam County.  I have been an administrator at Ottoville for 23 years.  I have been both the principal and superintendent at Ottoville for 14 years, so this position is vary familiar to me.

My wife, Jill, of 27 years, will join me on the island.  Jill is a registered nurse and presently works at Lima Mercy Health.  I also have two daughters; Brooke, 23, is a special education teacher at Pandora-Gilboa Schools.  Taylor, 26, is an occupational therapist for Wapak, Waynesfield-Goshen and Memorial St. Mary’s Schools.  She is married and has a 7-week-old daughter.

I look forward to meeting all the residents and settling down in our new community.

Educationally yours,

Scott Mangas, Put-in-Bay Schools Superintendent
