After reading the very depressing article regarding the RIF situation in the Falls Schools, I'm curious what State Rep. Kristina Roegner has to say to the students, parents and staff of our school district. What has she done to rectify the ill-conceived ideas of funding public schools?
On April 22, Mayor Walters hosted a meeting for the Neighborhood Excellence program at the Natatorium. There were close to 100 people there, all energetic and excited to learn and share information with their fellow Cuyahoga Falls residents.
COLUMBUS -- Remember that time the governor urged people to consider Ohio for their vacation destinations, rather than heading to exotic places outside of the state's borders? "We are stressing stay-cations in Ohio this year," he told a crowd. No, not that governor.

A letter to the editor published in the April 23, 2017 Falls News-Press represented open enrollment in a misleading and inaccurate manner ("Says Falls School Board should'reconsider' open enrollment," Page 9). The School District has participated in open enrollment for many years.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a Neighborhood Ambassador meeting. It was eye opening. I have never heard so many reasons why people love Cuyahoga Falls. Neighborhood Ambassadors is a remarkable initiative put together by Mayor Walters and his administration.
As Americans we value freedom and embrace competition. We recognize that the benefits of competition, lower prices and improved quality, drive our free markets and have propelled our economy to be one of the strongest in the world.

The Cuyahoga Falls City School District is asking voters to approve Issue 12, the renewal of a five-year, 4.75-mill levy on the May 2 ballot.
It's a great time to live in, or come visit, Cuyahoga Falls. Opening up Front Street to allow traffic has the potential to usher in a new era for the city. It's long overdue for the outdoor pedestrian mall area to be removed and the area to be opened up.

COLUMBUS -- Stuff happens all the time to spotlight deficiencies in Ohio Revised Code, and lawmakers, when sufficiently provoked, will step up and offer legislation to address the shortcomings.

In the April 16 edition of the Falls News-Press there was an article about the upcoming 4.75-mill Cuyahoga Falls City School District renewal levy. In that article Superintendent Nichols mentioned savings this year that were expected to cut about $590,000 of the approximately $1.
Within hours Sunday, a video uploaded to Facebook spread like wildfire. It showed the random, heinous killing of a Cleveland man as he walked home after eating Easter dinner with his family.
During Easter people make a better effort to remember their faith and be better a person to others, in a small way echoing Jesus' sacrifice of himself for the betterment of everyone on Earth. This desire to reach out to others is always welcome, and a great thing to see.
I feel the need to respond to the March 26 opinion piece written by State Representative of the 37th District, Kristina Roegner, calling for a Convention of the States to change our U.S. Constitution ("What is a 'Convention of States'?" Page 8, Cuyahoga Falls News-Press).

I've been a resident in the Falls for more than 10 years now, having lived all around the country and in some places where people generally move when they retire, in beautiful cities, some large, some small in Arizona, South Texas, Florida, and California.
The Solon City School District ranks No. 1 in academics in the state of Ohio. I have started to attend their Board of Education meetings. I hope to report to the Falls News-Press regarding what Solon does that Cuyahoga Falls could do at zero cost.

I live in a condo at Northpoint at Hunters Crossing in Cuyahoga Falls. I attended a meeting of the Planning Commission concerning the building of a four-story, 61-unit apartment building between our condo complex and our Reserve condo neighbors.
Recently I became a casualty in the war raging against opiates. No, I didn't lose a loved one to a heroin overdose. Nor did I decide to shoot narcotics into my veins.
