I would love to see Westlake and Bay Village work together to follow Lakewood's lead in taking advantage of Ohio's law that authorizes cities to offer special financing to residential and commercial property owners for solar energy projects within their borders. It might be possible to work with Lakewood to get this project moving faster. Lakewood's city government is developing their plan and timeframe, to be in place and ready by the end of the year. You can read more about this by visiting www.lakewoodobserver.com and reading the article "City Spurring Solar Energy Projects," by Glenn Campbell.

If you are looking for an example of courteous and friendly teens, you need look no further than the members of the Bay Village Key Club and the singing group, Choraleers. On Wednesday, November 11th, the West Shore Senior Center (located in the Knickerbocker Apartments) held a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser to provide the necessary funding for programs for local seniors.
Volunteers from the Key Club offered to help with the event and did they ever! This amazing group of teens helped out in all aspects of the evening and were a vital component to the success of the night. It was clear to everyone in attendance that this group of teens were dedicated to service and took pride in what they set out to do. All agreed the event would not have been as wonderful without their help.
Voting no on Issue 2 is critical to defend our freedom and the free market system.
A yes vote on Issue 2 would amend the Ohio constitution and create a Farm Care Standards Board. What it means for Ohio is that a Board not selected by voters will decide what we eat, how food is produced, including factory farming methods, drugs or chemicals used, and cloning; treatment of animals, and the safety and quality of the food supply.
I appreciate your paper’s efforts to keep voters informed on all community issues. I am happy to report that the St. Paul Thrivent Hearts Helping Hunger Campaign for the Westlake Assistance Program reached its goal of raising $1500 with a $500 supplement by the Northwest Cuyahoga County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
