It was a good day to do better for our public places & spaces, making Downtown Kent the best itRead More can be!... The team commitment was noticeable, fun, and one could depart knowing it would always be a treat to return to our improved & exciting Kent...

To the two above that like urban decay and garbage filled alleys... There are plenty of communitiesRead More around the area that wish they had what Kent has now. I'm sure they also have affordable housing if Kent bothers you that much.

Touche!! You actually can now feel safe cutting through the alley and NOT have to hold your nose.Read More Thanks, Heather!!

Wha? You have to PAY to apply for what? To display your artwork? This tiny lead-in makes no sense.
Heather Malarcik March 27, 2013 at 09:34 pm
Yes, artists pay an application fee to display and sell their work. It's a standard practice for artRead More shows and similar events with prizes and other event-related expenses, such as entertainment, security, etc.

One change: UniversiTees is one of the locations in the contest and Woodsy's is not. But you shouldRead More still go to Woodsy's to shop, of course.

Sounds like a fun event -- we'll be there!

Good ol' Kent. Littering the world around us with those stupid sky lanterns. What does up mustRead More come down. Thanks!

Chinese lanterns pose a threat to wildlife, livestock and other animals by causing injuries thatRead More lead to suffering and a slow painful death. These novelty items are often used in celebrations, such as weddings. They are usually made of a paper-covered wire or bamboo frame and an open flame heat source. Heat lifts the lantern into the air where it can float for miles from the point of release. Once finished, a lantern will fall back down to earth, endangering the lives of animals on the ground and in water. Chinese lanterns can cause injury, suffering, and even death, through: •ingestion, •entanglement, •entrapment. Livestock (e.g. cattle) can eat or become caught in lantern debris in grazing vegetation, or eat lantern parts that have been accidentally chopped into animal feed during harvest. If an animal eats sharp lantern parts, these can tear and puncture the throat, stomach or internal organs causing internal bleeding or, in worst cases, death. An animal that has become trapped or entangled in a fallen lantern can suffer from injury, stress and panic as itl struggles to free itself. A wild animal that cannot free itself may eventually die from starvation. There is the added risk of fire caused by lanterns that fall to the ground whilst still alight - this can destroy habitats and set fire to animal housing, feed and bedding.

I was there when you and Abby met, Heather -- and I'm so glad you did! What a great partnership !

Headline typos are the best! Haymaker Farmers Market is also a member of the KCTB - we had new signsRead More painted for time credits, and have regular help with the market info table and EBT sales for time credits. The awesome time bank member who has helped with that may find herself with a paid position if she wants it if we get the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program funding the city helped us go after! We are also working with some KCTB members to develop a weekly children's program at the market. Time Banking is just amazing.

I joined the TimeBank almost four months ago as an "outsider" from Twinsburg Township. IRead More have never been so warmly embraced by a group of people. The next three days I will be in Kent working with others doing various tasks, including helping to prep the bridge at the Haymaker Farmer's Market. I will join the group at our monthly Potluck Dinner. I will use the library. I will be shopping and dining in Kent. I suppose I am doing the very things your mission hopes to happen in Kent. Abby Greer for Mayor! Nope, we need her to much to steer the TimeBank.

I think the Kent Art & Wine festival is great. Since we live in a college town, however, itRead More would be nice to connect to the art students so they could contribute to the event.
Heather Malarcik June 1, 2012 at 06:59 pm
We have worked with the KSU School of Art on letting students know they can participate in the eventRead More (even at a lower rate), and the new Fashion School Store is involved this year, which is a nice addition. If you have more ideas, please let us know!

Met Mo 20-some years ago when I took over from her a shabby but neat apartment on Lake Street.Read More "Radiators don't work", she said, "But run the oven with its door open and you're fine!" She was then and remains today, one of the coolest chicks in Kent! Best wishes to her and her family!
