The Holiday Lights Of Clifton Mill

One of the most iconic holiday lighting displays is near Dayton in the tiny town of Clifton Mill. The mill is illuminated by over 3 million lights each year. It’s become a tradition of residents in a three state area to be there when the lights come on each night the day after Thanksgiving until New Years. Take a look.

World Recognition Of Some Ohio Autumn Color

http://
Looking for the most beautiful fall color in the entire world? Well a new book published by the National Geographic Society says that Holmes County Ohio is one of the top ten places in the world to witness the changing of leaves in the autumn of the year. We discovered that local folks in Holmes County had been saying that for years. One man who should know is photographer Doyle Yoder who lives and works in Holmes County. His work has been displayed in books and magazine covers all over the world. Join us for another look at autumn in Holmes County through the lens of Doyle Yoder’s camera.

A Spooky Tombstone That Is No Bologna

http://
With Halloween fast approaching we headed for Marion, Ohio this week. Marion claims a real mystery in a local cemetery where a tombstone continues to move, year after year. We talk with a long-time radio host in Marion who is very familiar with the story. We also stop in nearby Waldo to taste a local delicacy, fried bologna sandwiches. All in all a fun Halloween One Tank Trip

Ohio’s Only Floating Island

http://
This week we travel to central Ohio and Buckeye Lake. The lake has over 21 islands and one of them is very special, Cranberry Bog Island, and island that actually floats. Take a look at the Tuesday, Ocober 7th segment that we did on New Day Cleveland on Fox 8 TV. Let me know if you like it.

NW Ohio Railroad Museum And A Place To Celebrate Oktoberfest

http://
We’re headed to northwest Ohio and the railroad town of Bellevue where one of the state’s larges railroad museums is located. One of the Mad River and NKP Railroad Museum’s prized possessions is a bell believed to have been on one of the locomotives that pulled the funeral train of Abraham Lincoln. We also discover a really authentic German restaurant where they will soon be celebrating Oktoberfest. Take a look.

It’s Fair Time in Ohio

http://
One of the highlights of summer each year is county fair time in Ohio. We had a chance to visit Ohio’s oldest, the Great Geauga County Fair in Burton, Ohio. But even though the Geauga Fair closed its run on Labor Day, there are still almost two-dozen county fairs around the state slated for September and October. I hope you find time to visit one.

The Mustang Flies Again And A Farm Market Ready For Autumn in Ashtabula County

http://
What a fun trip we had this week. Not only did we get to visit a great farm market near Ashtabula we also got to tour Titan Aircraft and meet John Williams, the owner. What John is doing at his plant in Austinburg is truly remarkable. He is building three-quarter scale P-51 Mustang Fighter Planes from WWII. John’s are called T-51s for Titan Aircraft. I know when we posted a photo of Titan Pilot Bill Koleno leading a flight of T-51s over Ashtabula County this week, it brought out a lot of interest in this week’s show. Also Roy Brant has sold his orchard near Ashtabula but, thankfully, the new owners say nothing is changing. There will still be the bakery, cider slush and all those great apples. I hope you will take a look at the story as it appeared on New Day Cleveland on Fox 8 TV. By the way, my apologies to my friend, Scott Robinson, head of the Chamber in New Philadelphia. My colleague, Natalie Herbick, was talking about doing a story there this week and I started to ask her if she ran into Scott Robinson, but I had a “senior moment” and could not think of Scott’s last name. I wanted to call him Scott Armstrong for some reason. So, if you are reading this Scott, again, my apologies.

A Look At The Original Blue Hole In Castalia, Ohio

http://
This week we get to take a look at Ohio’s tourist history. The original, Blue Hole in Castalia. For over seventy years generations of northern Ohioans made stopping at the Blue Hole a summer tradition. The Blue Hole closed in 1990 and IS NOT open to the public now. We contacted the private club that owns the property and they allowed us this one-time opportunity to take a look at what was once called “Ohio’s Greatest Natural Wonder.”
