Ogden Newspapers acquires Sandusky Newspaper inc.’s flagship Sandusky Register

Ogden Newspapers has purchased two Ohio dailies from Sandusky Newspapers Inc., the namesake Sandusky Register, which the family-owned company had operated since 1869, and the Norwalk Reflector.

In a visit to the newsrooms reported in the Register by staff writer Tom Jackson, Ogden Newspapers CEO Robert Nutting said his family-owned company will continue the community-based journalism that the Rau and White family established in Norwalk and Sandusky.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to inherit the legacy of their impressive work, and we look forward to publishing great community-focused newspapers and running vital media platforms to serve a region as important as Sandusky and Norwalk, home to destinations such as Lake Erie and Cedar Point,” Nutting said.

For his part, Sandusky Newspapers CEO David Rau said his family was fortunate to be able to sell the papers over to another family company, “who have demonstrated a record of editorial independence and local emphasis, and have a long-standing commitment to quality community journalism. We believe they will be good stewards in the rapidly changing media world.”

Rau added the decision to sell was difficult. “Ultimately, we decided that given the tremendous changes in the media business over the past generation, the Register and Reflector, and both communities, would be better served were they owned by a larger company with more scale.”

Ogden owns eight other Ohio newspapers, including one in northern Ohio, the Advertiser-Tribune in Tiffin.

“The addition of the Sandusky Register and the Norwalk Reflector to our family of newspapers will provide opportunities to our readers—both in print and online—to experience more comprehensive community news coverage and in-depth reporting on regional issues,” Nutting said. “Also, with publications in Sandusky, Norwalk and Tiffin, we’re particularly excited about the potential to create greater marketing opportunities for local business seeking to expand their footprint in the region.”

Nutting told the newsrooms that as the news business changes, Ogden will continue to be in the market for newspapers.

“We continue to believe very strongly in the power of printed newspapers,” he said. “We believe in their value to readers, advertisers and especially to providing guidance and leadership to their communities. The Sandusky Register and the Norwalk Reflector, along with their websites, and, are vital and credible connections to Erie and Huron counties that deliver important value to readers and advertisers. That’s more important now than ever before.”

Wheeling, West Virginia-based Ogden Newspapers publishes 47 dailies plus weeklies in 16 states.

Sandusky Newspapers Inc., which has been in the newspaper business since 1869, has sold a number of its properties in the past year. Rau said the company intends to keep its newspapers in northeast Tennessee, where it owns the Kingsport Times-News and the Johnson City Press.

Randy Cope of Cribb, Greene & Cope, the merger and acquisition firm with offices in Arkansas, Montana and Californian, represented Sandusky Newspapers in the transactions.

Sandusky Register: Panel moves to name NASA center for Armstrong

The U.S. Senate voted to rename NASA's Plum Brook Station after the late astronaut and Ohioan Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon.

According to The Sandusky Register, Plum Brook Station is a test facility for NASA's Glenn Research Center in Sandusky, Ohio. It is home to the Space Environments Complex where researchers simulate the space environment. NASA also tests equipment for the rigors of space travel at the station.

Armstrong grew up in Wapakoneta, Ohio, and served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War where he flew fighter planes off the aircraft carrier USS Essex. He joined the NASA Astronaut Corps and piloted the Gemini 8 capsule in orbit where it docked with another spacecraft.

During Apollo 11, Armstrong and astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins launched from Cape Canaveral and traveled three days to lunar orbit. Aldrin and Armstrong took the lunar lander to the moon's surface where Armstrong made his historic moonwalk.

After leaving NASA in 1971, Armstrong accepted an offer to teach aerospace engineering at the University of CIncinnati.

"I’m pleased to join Sen. Rob Portman in honoring Ohio-native Neil Armstrong by renaming NASA Glenn’s Plum Brook Station in Sandusky for a man who inspires future Ohioans to continue our state’s tradition of breaking barriers in space,” U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown told The Register.


Sandusky Register

The Sandusky Register is a daily newspaper serving Sandusky, Ohio, as well as nearby Port Clinton and the Lake Erie Islands (collectively known regionally as Vacationland).[2]


The Sandusky Register has been in production since 1822, originally known as the Sandusky Clarion.[3] Published in a building at the corner of Columbus Avenue and East Water Street, the Clarion became a daily newspaper on April 24, 1848. The Clarion office burned down in January 1852, destroying almost all files. Rechristened the Daily Register, the paper continued to grow with its city, becoming a paper of Republican affiliation in 1856.[4]

In 1859, the paper was renamed the Commercial Register.[5] The name plate Sandusky Register first appeared in 1869. A charter member of the Western Associated Press, parent of the present Associated Press, the Register was one of the first newspapers able to supply, through radio dispatch, instant news. In 1929, the Sandusky Register purchased the Democratic-affiliated paper the Sandusky Star-Journal and moved to its present location at Jackson and Market Streets in Sandusky. Both the Register and the Star-Journal continued publication under the corporate name of Sandusky Newspapers Inc. In 1941, the company acquired the rival Sandusky News, and the name on all editions was changed to the Register Star-News. The paper resumed its original name Sandusky Register in 1958.[6]

Its website went live in 1996. The local entertainment website for Sandusky and the Lake Erie Islands also went live in 1996.

The Sandusky Register was purchased in 1869, by Isaac Foster "I.F." Mack, an Oberlin College graduate and union soldier who was captured by the Confederacy and held as a Prisoner of War. Mack served in various roles during his 40 years at the Register, as editor, business manager and publisher, from 1869 to 1909. Mack's descendants owned the newspaper until July 2019 when Ogden Newspapers purchased the Sandusky Register.[7]

The Sandusky Register has been named the best daily in Ohio in its circulation group by the Associated Press of Ohio eight times since 2007, in the general excellence category, placing second place in those other years. It has earned more awards than any newspaper of its size in Ohio, and in 2018 captured all three of the best investigative reporting awards from the AP. There are seven reporters, three editors, three page editors, a sports editor, two photographers, and a news/obits clerk.

May 10, 2021 | Portman Difference

In a recent op-ed for the Sandusky Register,Senator Portman reflected on the progress we have made as a nation in helping formerly incarcerated Americans get a second chance and achieve their God-given potential in life. Portman, who has long been a leader in working to pass bipartisan reentry legislation, pointed to the successes of bills like his Second Chance Act, which provides federal funding for proven reentry programs across the country to help more Americans get back on their feet. In all, since 2009, more than 800 Second Chance Act grants have been awarded, and last year Senator Portman worked to secure a record $100 million in funding for grants this fiscal year.

Senator Portman discussed how his work has continued despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, when he learned the Paycheck Protection Program that was created under the CARES Act excluded small business owners with unrelated felony records from receiving these invaluable loans, Portman worked with the Department of the Treasury to change the rules and expand PPP access to second chance small business owners.

Portman also highlighted new reentry legislation he introduced today – the bipartisan Reentry Employment Opportunities Act –that will make permanent the Labor Department’s Reentry Employment Opportunities grant program, which currently exists as a pilot program set to expire next year. Portman believes this program should continue to provide invaluable skills training to help returning citizens get good-paying jobs and stability to break the cycle of recidivism.

Excerpts of the op-ed can be found below and the full op-ed can be found here.

Break the Prison CycleBy U.S. Senator Rob PortmanThe Sandusky Register

Spring is a time of new beginnings, so it is a fitting time to hold up those who have started new lives of meaning and purpose after being convicted of a crime and serving their time.

Helping formerly incarcerated individuals overcome their past mistakes and reenter society as productive citizens makes sense for everyone: those formerly incarcerated and their families, neighbors who will live in safer communities, law enforcement and the taxpayer.

As a country, we have come a long way on this issue over the past decade or so. More than 10 years ago, I co-authored bipartisan legislation called the Second Chance Act, which helps people get back on their feet through supporting state and local reentry programs. A few years ago, I joined my colleague, Democrat Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont to renew and strengthen the Second Chance Act as part of the First Step Act, including adding nonprofit organizations as eligible grant recipients and requiring rigorous audits to ensure that federal dollars are spent wisely.

Since 2009, more than 800 Second Chance Act grant awards have been made, and last year we secured $100 million in funding — a record. I have seen the results of the Second Chance Act firsthand at reentry programs across Ohio, including great northwest Ohio nonprofits like Goodwill Industries in Toledo. Recently, we had a great dialogue with the Toledo Chamber of Commerce and Ron and Cathy Tijerina from the RIDGE Project about how the program has helped them support Second Chance families in Northwest Ohio.

Looking ahead, there is still more work for us to do to reduce recidivism rates and allow all Americans to overcome their past mistakes.

Right now, I am working to pass bipartisan legislation called the Reentry Employment Opportunities Act to do just that. Along with my colleague, Democrat Senator Gary Peters of Michigan, I introduced this legislation to make permanent the Labor Department’s Reentry Employment Opportunities grant program, which currently exists as a pilot program authorized under Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The REO program supports national, regional, and local skills training organizations that provide outstanding opportunities for returning citizens to get skills that will help them find both good-paying jobs and the stability and purpose that comes from a career.

The REO program has been successful, but right now it does not have a dedicated funding stream to support its important mission. I believe it’s critical we make the REO program permanent so that more folks reentering society after time in the justice system can get the helping hand they need to enter the workforce and break the cycle of recidivism. I will continue to work in Washington to get this important legislation passed.

I’m proud to be a partner in Washington for Ohioans and all Americans looking to get a Second Chance, turn their lives around, and achieve their God-given potential.
