Ranger Batik told us about the homesteaders in the area and harsh climate they encountered. While speaking he said that he was originally from Ohio. So, since Debbie is from Elyria, Ohio, we asked him where he was from. He is also from Elyria, Ohio and graduated Elyria High School too, but 15 years after Debbie. His father also worked in the U.S. Steel Mill too, just like Debbie's father. Small world!
