How do we, the Huffman family, say the "thank you" that is needed to show our appreciation for your support, thoughts, prayers and concerns shown during the recent power outage? You have offered your labor, your financial help and any thing else that we could have possibly needed.

None of us personally, or in our business, would have expected the effects of this kind of weather in Ohio. Life is always full of surprises.

You have shown that Upper Arlington, is without a doubt, the best place to live and have a business. Once again, you have proven that as a community, you continue to take care of your own.

Thank you to our employees, who have been here to help us get back in business. Without them we could not have done it.

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

Once again, our Upper Arlington city elected and appointed leaders have refused to abide by the will of their resident-taxpayer-electors.

Their recent actions -- filing the protest of the solid waste initiative petition with the Franklin County Board of Elections and subsequent filing with the Ohio Supreme Court -- trump all of their previous transgressions, including the attempted purchase of Kingsdale and the Christian Apostolic Church (both at above market price) and the relining of Redding Road (a very costly mistake).

Issue 52 has never been about trash. From its outset, it's been about the right to vote, to have our voices heard by those we elect and those whose salaries we pay.

This has got to stop. Voting yes on Issue 52 is the only way to send our leaders the message that we've had enough.

I have been a resident of Upper Arlington for a little more than 10 years. I enjoy living in our city, as I find much of what I need fairly accessible.

But I feel that we have become stagnant and I think our city is losing ground to other similar suburbs in Franklin County and Delaware County because we are landlocked, which leaves little opportunity for redevelopment and with that the strengthening of our tax base.

I would support the reasonable rezoning of a limited number of properties in Upper Arlington so that we can expand our commercial tax base.

I have a child who is going through the Upper Arlington school system, so I also recognize the financial value to the schools of having these properties redeveloped.

I strongly support the limited rezoning of the two properties on Tremont Road, as I think it would be beneficial to all citizens of Upper Arlington

I have climbed mountains in Tibet, but I never felt I had to climb Mount Everest to feel I was on the top of the world. After all, I live in beautiful Upper Arlington, and for 40 years I have been extremely happy and content.

But lately, what in the world has happened to my Shanga-La? We have a city council that has gone completely wacko, feeling they have the power to do as they please regardless of what the residents think.

Council plus the city manager must get in a huddle like football players, and decide what play is best for us. We don't even get a chance to punt.

The city council's latest rampage is allowing Centro Builder to spread more and more buildings along Tremont. It is a frightening threat to our peaceful tree-laden streets, and you could be next. The tiny dribble of tax money for the city isn't worth it.

There is nothing carved in stone as to what Centro will build there. Once it is rezoned it could be anything. All it would take would be a variance passed by city council, with the stroke of a pen.

Keep in mind the fable about the fox guarding the hen house. Vote NO on rezoning Tremont. It is your chance to "punt."
