The Township had it's meeting. I have heard they are going to work on making this situation better. Read MorePlease call them and let them know that they are doing the right thing. I believe that most people are good and do things the best they can. I think the Trustees were trying to do the best they could and are doing even better now. I hope what ever they have decided to do that it is acceptable to all. Good luck Trustees and thank you.

How can I help

Hi Tim I think you just did. Anyone who asks that question must be a person who would pick up trash Read Morewere they see it. Help someone cross the street. If you have food carry it in your car so when someone is pan handling you can give them something to eat. I carry a bag of can goods. If you see your neighbors car has not moved in a week first check to see if they are ok and if they are ask them if they need help fixing the car or finding someone to work on it. There are so many good deeds you just try to be a better person. I believe it is not going to church or how much money you give to your church (although it helps the church and helps them help others) what you do on a daily basses that gets one into heave. I remember my mom putting a nickle in parking meters when I was little. She made clothes and scarves for the kids at human services and never let anyone know she was the one. Maybe all you would have to do is tell some one something nice. Good luck to you. You have made my day, your first good deed!!!!! Thank You

OK let we break it down to a 3rd grade level.....don't like the price then don't go. No one isRead Moreforci ng you to pay for name brand items, there is still generic and store labeled items Paul.

Paul, I am not certain that KSU is a "solid Midwest University," but I do think a student Read Morecan get a good education there if he or she is selective in a major, professors, and courses.

I went to the Township meeting tonight. I think these are good people trying to do the best theyRead Morecan . I just beleive in this instance this was not the way to handle their defisate problems. I am so happy to say I think the Township is going to try to work with us and the atternies involve.
Confederate American February 26, 2014 at 03:16 AM
Linda you say you pay taxes too but do you pay the same percentages that we do in kent.? You makeRead Moreth e kent fire dept look as if they are the bad guys. If Franklin Twp doesn't like the rates then they should start their own. Its the American way we have done things. You do want a free service here. you said you pay taxes too. What is the problem here? Your rants are all over
linda huston February 26, 2014 at 10:55 AM
I don't know about the taxes. I will say that I think all taxes should be equal for everyone.Read More Perso nally I would say you are the person on attack here not me. You and I have spent way to much time discussing this instead of going to meetings to help with solutions. The fire department is not the bad guys. They are good decent heros I feel we need to make life easier for them and affordable for us that is all. I don't know about you but I have a life. I work, read books, planning a garden. I would rather be working on all these things and what we have been discussing and trying to solve problems by attending meetings, voting and sharing instead of defending my self to you. The reason for this post was to try to get people involved not hurt any organization. Please take an active part in your government like with me no one has to see it the way I do, they do not have to support me but it would be nice if they took part and used their own ideas to make this world a better place to live.

you say "a small tax for everyone is agreeable to you" . Why in the world would you think Read Morelike this. If you don't like the price of the ambulance then don't call them, or better yet, call Ravenna?

why do I need to get out a do something? The system in place works well now.

Rick: the Acme executives might not talk to you, but I am sure they will listen to a Lawyer.

sorry about your wife getting hurt but I still don't legally see any wrong doing. If someone was to Read Moreslip and fall in the street, can they sue the city? If the slip and fall was the act deliberately done by an employee ,as in dumping a mop bucket on the sidewalk, then maybe there would be a case. I am not sure if an "act of God" a viable case of neglect.

in the city of Kent, we as residents are required to remove the snow off of our sidewalks within 24 Read Moreof the storm. Just keep in mind, was the person who fell properly dressed for the snow. Sounds kinda harsh but you can't place the whole blame on the store. Cant really blame the store if a person went out in tennis shoes and without a hat per say. Blaming an family owned store public ally probably wasn't the best solution.

If I had my way we would never tear down any old builings. It might be cheeper but look at theRead Morehisto ry that is now gone. I think teachers teach our lfuture leaders and do we really want a bunch of the kids that have no respect or decency let alone no education leading our country. Teachers are our only hope. I know you make more money than I do Thank goodness I am not of such a small mind that I would feel envy and biternes for such a minimal reason. Oh yha I paid for my ambulance call.......

Franklin just won the Glidden paint contest. Glidden had the whole inside of the school paintedRead Morelast year. Now it is closing. I don't care about your ambulance bill either Linda.

It is so impressive that the Township won. Good for them and us. Bless their little hearts. One Read Moreof the reasons this is a good place to live. It seems like such a little thing but it shows they really are interested and keep trying. Thank you you made me smile. It is very sad the school is closing. I wish there was some way to keep it open. The township also has on their site I think it is called Geocaches I want to try it this summer. I would say most people in public office are there trying to do what they think is right. After going to Township meetings I think they do a pretty good job too. But saying why should you get out and do something. People thinking like that is part of the reason the world is in so much trouble. All I can do is lol at that kind of thinking. I am sorry for you. I won't keep you in my thoughts but I will say la little prayer for you.
