If the person who planted a "YES on 23" sign in my front yard Friday night or Saturday morning had asked first ...
A big thank-you to Jeffery Burger for the clarity and accuracy of his response to Mark Robertson's claims about the planned community center for Orange Township (ThisWeek Olentangy Valley News, Oct. 2).
Orange Township has a so-called community center on the ballot. Now, of course, it is not a community center, per se -- as if each resident has free access to the facility, or even desires the facility.
I am often amazed when I talk to residents and nonresidents alike about Westerville. The first thing they say is what a wonderful parks and bikeway system the city has and what a great Community Center we have.
I'm glad the strike is settled, but there are some things folks ought to know.
I will vote for the Gahanna-Jefferson school district levy, but my vote will be as a result of my grandson's very positive experience with the school district and my belief that as the quality of the district's schools goes so goes the value of all homes within its boundaries.
My third- and fourth-graders at Jefferson Elementary School have changed buses at least three times this school year. It's October. Do you know how confusing that can be to an 8- and 9-year-old?
Education opens doors for all children: This fact motivates schools to seek out those who may have disabilities and to offer help to them.
The proposed Orange Township recreation center that's up for a funding vote in November is another example of a local municipality being out of touch with the average resident and catering to a small vocal minority.
In early August, my husband had a stroke. It was life-threatening. But thanks to Norwich Township medics at Brown Township's Station 82, who came to our Brown Township home in minutes and rushed him to the hospital, he is still with us today.
As president of the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce in 2014, I've watched with interest the letters coming recently to the Record concerning the long run of the farmers market located in the Grove City Town Center. I would like to clarify just what the chamber's role is concerning the market.
I am responding to the story written by Marla K. Kuhlman, titled "Cafeterias serve harvest from school's garden" (ThisWeek Rocky Fork Enterprise, Oct. 2, 2014).
Our school district is one of the few in central Ohio consistently rated "excellent" by the Ohio Department of Education.
Apparently, we've come full circle. Citizens For Responsible School Spending warned in 2011 the rising costs of maintaining school staff in Gahanna was unsustainable and that a new levy would be needed every three years to pay for Gahanna-Jefferson employees' compensation, which was far better than that of the citizens who are paying the bills.
You whack one head off of the tax Medusa and three more grow in its place.
Showe Development's proposals on East and West New England can meet several objectives, with correction for two serious defects. Without these corrections, this planned development would be toxic to our special Old Worthington environment.
Westerville was settled in 1806 and operated 165 years without any income tax. In 1971 voters approved a city income tax rate of 0.50 percent.
I attended the CAC meeting on Oct. 2 that was supposed to address the rezoning of the proposed Moo Moo Car Wash at the northern edge of Clintonville.
My wife and I have raised three children in the Gahanna-Jefferson schools. We are both teachers in Gahanna, and we attend a church in Gahanna. In addition, I grew up in the Gahanna-Jefferson school district and graduated from GLHS myself.
I encourage all Westerville voters to vote 'Yes' on Issue 24, renewing our existing 0.25 percent city income tax supporting Parks.
Over the last year, Epcon has been pushing a high density condo development for a 15-acre site on Maxtown Road in Genoa Township.
Election time is here again, and thus it's time to carefully examine the positions and records of candidates.
In past weeks, I have read with interest the varying opinions about Issue 23, the proposed increase to Upper Arlington's income tax rate.
Again, on a fall Saturday, residents of streets above and below the mansions of East North Broadway were inconvenienced by the closing of the road, a major east-west artery on the north side of town.
We believe that good schools and fire services are good for the community, but not at any price.
First impressions are everything when you are selling your home. The critical eye of a potential buyer is focused like a laser these days, from the moment they pull up to that one last look at the front of the house and its surroundings as they are pulling away.
Upper Arlington is a great community. Why? It is because of the countless number of wonderful people who live and work in the community. Great family neighborhoods create greatness.
We just wanted to thank the many people who came out and supported our second annual Walk for Interstitial Cystitis.
Watching the Upper Arlington football players carrying the American flag and then handing it off to Upper Arlington students is a good sign of community.
This is an open letter to Reynoldsburg City Schools Superintendent Tina Thomas-Manning as well as members of the Reynoldsburg Board of Education.
