Community spirit and volunteerism continues to thrive in Hilliard year round.
In the recently published 2013 Financial Report for the city of Upper Arlington, two expense categories -- public safety and general government -- comprise close to 75 percent of total government expenditures.
For each of the past 31 years, St. James Lutheran Church has hosted its annual Brats and Crafts Festival during the first full weekend of August.
The 9/11 memorial in Hilliard was a solemn and beautiful ceremony.
As a UA resident, you have a choice to make, voting for or against Issue 23. As a fellow UA resident, I urge you to take the time to find the facts on Issue 23 for yourself.

Are you tired of a one-party system in Delaware County politics? I am. Please remember that there is an alternative.
It was only a matter of time. Ohio legislators significantly reduced funding to local communities, most notably by ...
I take issue with William Gable's Sept. 11 comments regarding Issue 23, which would increase the Upper Arlington city income tax rate from 2 to 2.5 percent.
I would like to call attention to some unsettling recent statistics regarding the ranking of our Upper Arlington High School among other Ohio high schools by the highly regarded U. S. News and World Report.
In a Jan. 19, 2014 article ("Local grads less ready for college") The Columbus Dispatch reported, "Even suburban districts with top ratings on state report cards graduated hundreds of students who were assigned to remedial classes.

I believe the crown jewel of our beautiful city is the Westerville Community Center located on Cleveland Avenue. This facility is the envy of many other cities and towns as it serves central Ohio with services second to none.
A recent news article in ThisWeek Olentangy Valley News quoted Mark Robertson, a former trustee and member of Friends of Orange Township, saying the bond issue to build the community center would only cost $4.09 per month.
I write in response to George Momirov's letter from Aug. 28.
I would like to share my thoughts on freshman orientation.
I would like to add my tears and sadness to the many lifeguards, staff, families and neighbors young and old, who, in celebration and reverence, said final goodbyes to summer with one last lap, splash, dip or dive off the 16-foot platform at the Olympic Swim Club.
It seems that Upper Arlington officials are lobbying furiously for an increase in income tax rates.
I am angered by Americans for Prosperity inserting themselves into our local tax issue.
Recently, some members of Whitehall City Council were surprised to learn that they had agreed to put forward legislation to increase their pay and the pay of other city administrators, effective 2016 and 2018.
