"Rum Run" Launches Reception
"At first it was about the money, but he got in deeper than he planned, ...and then it became revenge." Well....that line grabs your attention doesn't it? This is about "Rum Run", author R.C. Durkee's new novel that is an historical novel that takes place during Prohibition along Lake Erie's southern shore. Vermilion and surrounding area's are the setting for the story.
"Rum Run" and R.C. Durkee will be at German's Villa, Sunday, November 23rd from 1:00 until 3:00 pm for the launch of this new book. This is R.C.'s debut novel and signed books will be available for purchase.
About the book: It is the summer of 1928 and Prohibition is in full swing. Rum running along Lake Erie's southern shore is as hot as Atlantic's Rum Row. Daring rumrunners make mad dashes across the lake from Canada to remote coves and sleepy fishing villages
dotting Ohio's shoreline with Coast Guard often in hot pursuit.
When AB (Able Body) Seaman Rusty loses his job at the tug yard and cannot find work, everything he has worked for slips from his grasp. Desperate, he agrees to haul grape juice with his charter boat for the mysterious Trapani family's island vineyard to the
mainland despite his suspicions it is not just juice.
When they offer him an opportunity to run illegal alcohol from Canada, he jumps at the chance, and his earnings grow along with his fame. As he slips into the underground world of rum running he soon realizes he is losing far more than his principles. He is
jeopardizing his marriage and his safety. But getting out is not easy, and he soon finds himself the target of hijackers and a sadistic, renegade Coast Guard captain.
The 1920's roar to life in this suspenseful, action-packed novel about love and revenge. Read the book, and live the run. Rum Run is now for sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and can be ordered at most bookstores.
The Inspiration Behind the Book: "Rum Run" is more than a fiction story to Ms. Durkee, it is homage to the Great Lake Erie that has fascinated and affected her since childhood. The Lake is all beauty, awe and anger. Her storms are fast and furious. She is loved and
cursed. Like her character Uncle Fritz says, “She (Erie) is as fickle as a flapper.” When RC wrote this, she wanted to capture the reverence sailors like Rusty have for the lake.
"Rum Run" had a number of inspirations. First and foremost was her Grandfather on her mother’s side. He worked on Lake Erie for the first half of his life, first on tugboats, and then on a large lake cruise ship called Goodtime during the 1920’s. He told RC's father about what he had seen and experienced on the lake during Prohibition and her father, in turn, told here and sparked this future author’s imagination.
Fascination with the Great Lake Erie grew deeper with a coin RC's father’s cousin had framed and hung on her dining room wall. It was a penny given by Durkee's great-great-grandfather (an Erie sailor) to her great-grandmother when she was a child on a Lake
Erie dock before he set sail on a freight steamer. It would be the last time she saw her father as one of Erie’s notorious storms wrecked his ship, drowning all men aboard including my great-great-grandfather. The penny became precious and handed down through
Being so close to the lake, afforded RC many opportunities to experience the beauty and wrath. From the deck of her friend’s sailboat on an agitated, choppy lake, to exhilarating rides on small caps in my future husband’s powerboat, to lazy rides on island
ferries on glass-like water, Lake Erie has always fascinated RC. SHe has seen glorious sunsets and angry waterspouts; watched ice breakers bust ice in the channels and huge ore freighters traversing the horizon. Lady Erie is as beautiful as she is deadly and I
have known more than RC cares to know that have drowned in her. RC, like many of us, is a victim of her lake effect- heavier snows, cloudier days and biting spring winds, but Erie gives back long, warm fall days and extra rain for the crops.
Lakers, tugboats and the bustle at industrial docks that do business on Erie’s southern shore have also fascinated the author. When she was a child, many weekend family rides included stops overlooking the American Shipbuilding docks where constructing a cutter or laker was in progress. Another stop nearby included watching the hopper (railroad) cars rise and dump ore while the giant jaws of the Hullet unloader gulped the ore up for the blast furnaces at the steel mill. Her father explained the processes at both places and RC gobbled up every word.
So when a few decades ago when RC read about Lake Erie’s role in rum running, her imagination was off and running. She wrote the first chapter of this book in 1986 and never started chapter two until three decades later. There was a house to build and her art business was booming. When her father passed away, she began feverishly to write this story. He always believed she could write a book, and she needed to distract her mind from the pain of losing him. "Rum Run" was off and running. RC could not have written it in 1986- she needed the life experiences…the cards life deals you… the pain, the frustrations, the anger, the wonders and the joys. She needed the full deck to complete it.

“Keep Our Light Shining”...
that is the motto of the Lighthouse Preservation Committee (LPC). This committee has been formed by Main Street Vermilion and its purpose is to raise funds to preserve the Lighthouse, replace the Fresnel lens, repair, upgrade, and maintain the electricity in the lighthouse and to educate residents and guests about the history of the Vermilion Lighthouse. A preliminary estimate of $30,000 is needed.
Lighthouse Wine Glasses for Sale: The LPC is currently selling Vermilion Lighthouse Glasses for $10 each or a set of 4 for $35. You may purchase the wine glasses at the Main Street Vermilion office located at 685 Main Street beside the railroad tracks. The phone number is 440.963.0772.
These beautiful glasses have a glass-etched image of the Vermilion Lighthouse. What a wonderful gift this would make…don’t need a set of 4? Have a gift exchange at work or in your local club? Buy just one or two, fill and decorate it with goodies, Brummer’s is happy to help out!
The LPC will be decorating the lighthouse for the holidays. Stop by to see the beauty of our lighthouse all gussied up for the holiday season. Janice O’Neill and Karen Miller are heading up this particular endeavor. Vermilion Online News has donated the funds for the decorations.
The LPC is a very vibrant and energetic committee with great minds and great ideas. Fund raising occasions in the planning stages include a wine, cooking, and town hall tour and history event, an evening with Workshop Players in Amherst,and educational brochures and children’s materials. Other options are being explored as well.
The City of Vermilion Parks and Recreation Committee has approved the LPC's requests to repair the electrical system in the lighthouse, light the lighthouse using a Fresnel lens with proper approvals from the Coast Guard, and to complete the application to the Coast Guard for Park and Rec's approval and signature.
LPC member are: Reenie Rak, Chair; Elaine Carlin; Nan Gregory; Jole Karpinski; Judy Kernell; Karen Miller; Janice O’Neill; Betsy Wakefield, and Lynda Wakefield. If you are interested in becoming a part of our committee, please contact Reenie Rak, telephone 850-602-0450 for more information.
Winter Weather Has Arrived...
Erie Co. Snow
The Erie Co. Sheriff's Office utilizes standardized winter road condition advisory levels to inform the public about the general condition of roadways throughout the county during a winter storm, particularly in the rural areas.
Localized geographical areas within the county may experience better--or worse--road conditions then those listed in a given advisory level. Please monitor weather forecasts and/or information broadcast over or printed in local media outlets before you determine whether to venture out on the roadways.
Please do not call the Sheriff's Office to make general inquiries about road conditions--the dispatchers are very busy, particularly during a winter storm. The Sheriff's office asks residence for their cooperation.
Level 1 - Roadways are hazardous due to accumulated snow or ice. Drive cautiously.
Level 2 - Roadways are hazardous due to blowing and drifting snow and/or ice cover. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be on the roadways. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work.
Level 3 - Roadways are closed to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadway unless it is absolutely essential to travel. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency reasons may be subject to arrest.
Cell Phone Emergency Information Contacts
Through the Emergency Contact Information - Next of Kin (N.O.K.) Program, Ohioans can identify persons they choose to be notified in the event they are involved in a motor vehicle crash leaving them unable to communicate with emergency medical responders. Those with a driver license, temporary permit or state ID have the option of adding emergency contact information to their record.
Legislation to create the Ohio N.O.K. database was initiated by two Ohio mothers dealing with tragedies who wanted to ensure someone could be notified as soon as possible in the event of an emergency.
The program features are:
~It's free. There is no fee to add contact information to your license/permit/ID record.
Contact information will be stored in a secure database which holds Ohio driver license/ID information, accessed only by the Ohio BMV and law enforcement.
~For Ohioans age 18 and older, the contact person can be a relative, friend or co-worker. Those under 18 are required to have a parent or legal guardian as their primary contact.
For children under the age of 15 with a state ID, parents are encouraged to sign up for the Next of Kin Registry. Two emergency contacts can be listed to be used by law enforcement in the event the child becomes lost or is reported missing. For more information regarding child IDs visit http://bmv.ohio.gov/idrkids.stm
Three ways to submit your emergency contact information:
~In person at any local deputy registrar.
~Mail-In Enrollment Form
Once your information is on file, you may change or remove it by using any of the above methods. http://www.bmv.ohio.gov/nok.stm
