After all the world seems to have celebrated record-breaking rower Katie Spotz, her hometown is getting in on the act. Mentor City Council and the administration are looking for ways to mark her historic solo row across the Atlantic Ocean this past winter. At age 22, she was the youngest person to row across an ocean alone.
Ideas include making her grand marshal of the Its Better in Mentor Festival, preparing a resolution in her honor and presenting it during a ceremony in the reception area of city hall.
