Learn how to ice fish

From ODNR

Is cabin fever beginning to set in? If you’re nodding yes, fish the hard water when many other anglers are sitting inside and simply dreaming of wetting a line! A free ice fishing clinic will be held on Saturday, February 16, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The class will take place at the Hebron State Fish Hatchery, 10517 Canal Rd, Hebron.

Join experts from ODNR Division of Wildlife to enjoy such topics as planning and preparation, equipment usage, and safety. Demonstrations and hands-on fishing opportunities in the field are planned, conditions permitting. Some equipment is available for use, but feel free to bring your own ice fishing gear if you have it. A fishing license will be required for participants 16 years of age and older; licenses must be obtained prior to the event. Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather as portions of this workshop will be held entirely outdoors.

The workshop is free but pre-registration is required as space is limited. Call 614-644-3925 or email Derek.klein@dnr.state.oh.us to register. You must provide your customer I.D. number found on your fishing license when registering for this clinic.

From Nationwide Children’s Hospital

Nationwide Children’s Hospital announced plans to rededicate the hospital’s Research Institute as the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This renaming recognizes Ms. Wexner, whose ongoing, passionate advocacy has ushered in a period of unprecedented transformation at the hospital. During her more than 25 years on the board of directors, Nationwide Children’s has become one of the leading pediatric health care systems in the United States, and the Abigail Wexner Research Institute has become one of the most preeminent centers of its kind.

Ms. Wexner’s partnership with her fellow board members, Chief Executive Officer Steve Allen, MD, and the Nationwide Children’s executive team made this evolution possible. In recognition of Dr. Allen’s role, Nationwide Children’s will also establish the Allen Distinguished Scholar in Pediatric Research. The Allen Scholar will be awarded to a preeminent Nationwide Children’s senior researcher who exemplifies innovation taking place at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute. The inaugural honoree will be announced later this year and will receive a $100,000 award for their work.

The official rededication will be May 21. Dr. Allen has announced his plans to retire in June, while Wexner will continue her service on the board.

Mothers are resounding with the resource they have found in Darlene Brock’s Raising Great Girls. The feedback has stemmed from the success on Amazon where it topped the chart for “Parenting Girls” and also Darlene’s voice in speaking into the lives of over 10 thousand women in 74 countries (all the way to Israel and even Barbados) through her creation, The Grit & Grace Project.
