As The U.S. Healthcare System Hangs In The Balance Ohio Lawmakers Take Action

Rep. Crossman (D- Parma) & Rep. Clites (D-Ravenna) 

Other than perhaps the promise to “build that wall,” nothing is more emblematic pf President Trump’s 2016 campaign than his promise to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Although thus far the effort to repeal and replace the popular healthcare plan has been unsuccessful, Trump may soon get his wish as a Federal Appeals Court in Texas considers legal arguments in a case involving the constitutionality of the ACA. Meanwhile, two members of the Ohio House of Representatives have proposed adopting protections from the ACA into Ohio law to preserve certain protections for patients with preexisting condition should the court undo the law. Legal experts predict a decision in Texas v. U.S. any day and also predict that this case is likely to be resolved in the U.S. Supreme Court next year.

The President's Corner

I am contacted often by senior and disabled residents in our community who are seeking financial and other assistance. I find that, all too often, they are not aware of the programs offered by the local, state and federal governments or non-governmental organizations. That is why I recently reached out to Stacey Boycik, Manager of the Parma-Snow branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, to ask if she and her staff would consider partnering to put together a Senior Benefits Fair.  Always willing to sponsor programs that benefit the community, she excitedly agreed.

City Engineers Meet With U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers To Address Flooding

Parma engineers met with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Buffalo, N.Y., late this summer. They were seeking section 205 program funds to address surface-flooding concerns. The meeting stemmed from the city’s 2018 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers application regarding targeted flooding areas: Antoinette Drive, Thoreau Drive and Rousseau Drive; Regency Drive and Ridge Road; West Ridgewood Drive; and York Road and Pleasant Valley Drive. City engineers also discussed other areas that experienced flooding during a July 5 downpour: Bonnie Banks and Stormes Drive. Any awarded funds would be a 65/35 split with all the neighborhoods. “We keep pushing for these critical funds. We’ll do whatever they ask us on our end to seek these federal dollars for our city,” said Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter. “We continue to look at different areas that got hit hard. We have had meetings with West Creek Conservancy and Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District searching for solutions to our storm water management challenges.”

Cranksgiving- A Food Drive On Two Wheels

Cleveland’s cycling community is once again gathering food for disadvantaged families and senior citizens this holiday season! Bike Cleveland and Bike Parma are hosting Cleveland’s seventh-annual Cranksgiving, a food drive by bicycle that begins and ends at the Parma Hunger Center. There is no cost to join the event, but cyclists usually spend about $15 (or however much you can) on food and supplies for others. Last year the event raised over $2000 worth of food and supplies for the Euclid Hunger Shelter and we are hoping to crush that goal this year. This event has historically been the largest single-day donation of the year for all of the food banks involved and Bike Parma is honored to be co-hosting this year.

How does Cranksgiving work? Riders of all ages and skill levels receive a map of nearby grocery stores and are challenged to ride their bikes – regardless of weather — to about four of the stores to purchase one or more food items specified for each. Everything purchased must be hauled by bicycle, either in a bag, pannier, rack, or trailer. You will return to donate the food you collected to benefit the Parma Hunger Center. You can ride anywhere from a few miles to 15 during the event.

Want to contribute even more? Clean out your pantry and bring nonperishable food items to the event. Organize a mini-food drive at your work or in your neighborhood. Or, if you cannot attend, you can make a donation to Bike Cleveland or Bike Parma (specifying that it is for Cranksgiving) and a Bike Cleveland or Bike Parma board member will fetch groceries on your behalf.

Here’s the timeline for the event:

Event Date: Saturday, November 23rd 2019

Event Home Base: Parma Hunger Center 5280 Broadview Rd, Parma, OH 44134

10:30AM – Registration, plus coffee and donuts
11:00AM – Brief program and send off
1:00-1:15PM – Return to Parma Hunger Center and donate food
1:30PM – Closing program and traditional group photo

Loyalty, Courage And Cowardice

One of the points in the Boy Scout law is that a scout is loyal. Loyalty is a key virtue and essential for the success of any business and the nation. However blind loyalty can be a danger as well as false loyalty. It is expected that employees of a company or elected official will be loyal and support the organization. However, it is important to realize that loyalty is also a two way street. If an employee or partner is loyal to one person; the other person should be loyal in return. That means that an employee should be free to disagree with their supervisor or manager in a civil manner without fear of retaliation. At the same time, it should be expected that a loyal employee should also report wrongdoing or any violation of ethics without retaliation as well. This keeps a company and government running in an honest and efficient manner.

I Believe

Believers are not to be selfish or proud but followers of Jesus: humble, obedient, and servants. Celebrate every day, not just holidays, because every day is special. Christmas is strictly about Jesus, the real reason for the season. Doing something “just this once,” knowing it is wrong, can lead to terrible consequences. God does not abandon us in our distress; He sticks with us through thick and thin.

From vibrant pink patches on their uniforms to trendy beards, police officers are making a fashion statement this fall. In October, many of the officers donned vibrant pink police patches on their sleeves in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They also collaborated with University Hospital’s Seidman Cancer Center to bring awareness about breast cancer detection during Polish Village’s Treat & Greet, passing out literature at the event with UH staff. Furthermore, they raised money through City of Parma dress-down Fridays to help cover transportation costs for cancer patients traveling to and from treatments. The money was donated to the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery transportation program.

Parma Observer Is 10 Years Old

Parma Observer Publisher Daniel P. McCarthy

A decade is an important milestone for anything or anyone. I will be the first to admit that it just doesn't feel like 10 years have gone by. It was only yesterday, it seems, that I was holding the very first Parma Observer in my hands, the headline reading "Building  A Virtual Public Square For Parma", with a wonderful letter from then Mayor Dean DePiero, and an endorsement from Congressman Dennis Kucinich. When viewing that first front page I am struck by how much has changed since October of 2009, in the world, in Ohio, and most certainly in the Parma area. Our community has gone through a fair amount of change in the past 10 years. We passed through the recession and had to adjust to a certain amount of turbulence, but mostly we've learned to understand what it takes to survive in the 21st Century, although there are still substantial challenges to meet and major obstacles to overcome. From what I have heard and witnessed over the past decade after attending countless meetings in both the public and private sector, the people in leadership roles in Parma, Parma Heights and Seven Hills are aware of what their responsibility is and welcome more involvement from citizens concerned with the future of the Tri-City Area. There is absolutely nothing wrong with admitting that we need things which will improve our cities, and identifying exactly what these things are is the first step in making the crucial choices that will lead to a successful future for all. The Parma Observer is best thought of as a river, through which essential information can flow.

Parma Fire Department Awarded Nearly $1.7 Million In Federal Funding

Three federal grants will enable the Parma Fire Department to hire eight firefighters this fall and purchase some new equipment.

Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter and Fire Chief Mike Lasky recentlyannounced that the Parma Fire Department will be awarded nearly $1.7 million in federal grant money to hire eight new firefighters and purchase 103 portable radios, three station exhaust capture systems and one filling station. The more than $1 million to hire eight firefighters was awarded through the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant program. The SAFER grant is a 90/10 cost-share. The fire department will spend $147,000 annually over the next two years to help cover salaries. “We need a fully staffed fire department to keep pace with the safety demands of a city our size,” DeGeeter said. “This grant provides us with critical funding to help us replace firefighters who retired or transferred to other departments. This will reduce overtime and allow us to continue to provide the quality service our residents have come to expect and deserve. I appreciate the support we received from ourU.S. representatives and our U.S. senators to help us secure this grant money. Our fire, police and engineering departments, as well as our Grants Coordinator Shelley Cullins, are proactive at applying for grants.”

More re: Human Trafficking
Raising Awareness
>>  From the Human Trafficking Hotline -
https://humantraffickinghotline.org/

Myths & Facts:
Myth: Only women and girls can be victims and survivors of sex trafficking
Reality: One study estimates that as many as half of sex trafficking victims and survivors are male. Advocates believe that percentage may be even higher but that male victims are far less likely to be identified. LGBTQ boys and young men are seen as particularly vulnerable to trafficking.
Myth: Human trafficking involves moving, traveling or transporting a person across state or national borders.
Reality: Human trafficking is often confused with human smuggling, which involves illegal border crossings. In fact, the crime of human trafficking does not require any movement whatsoever. Survivors can be recruited and trafficked in their own home towns, even their own homes.

The President's Corner

Recently, Parma City Council approved and Mayor Timothy DeGeeter signed Resolution 108-19: “A RESOLUTION DETERMINING TO PROCEED WITH THE LEVY OF A PROPERTY TAX FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSTRUCTION, RECONSTRUCTION, RESURFACING AND REPAIR OF THE CITY OF PARMA’S STREETS, ROADS AND BRIDGES, AND TO SUBMIT THE QUESTION OF THE TAX TO THE ELECTORS AT THE NOVEMBER 5, 2019, ELECTION.” This resolution will appear as Issue 53 on your November ballot. If the issue passes, the owner of a $100,000 home will contribute about $53 per year – less than $4.50 per month – for street improvements in our city. The 1.5 mil, 5-year renewable levy would raise about $2.2 million dollars per year, which must be used exclusively on streets.

Cleveland Photo Fest

One day in late 2018, I sat and spoke with Laura D’Alessandro at an art exhibition at Prama Artspace Gallery, in Parma. We talked about lots of things, art, our families, and what we wanted to do with the rest of our lives. Laura told me she dreamed of bringing to Cleveland a photography festival similar to, PhotoNOLA, an event she participated in while living in New Orleans. Laura is a Cleveland born fine art photographer, writer and educator, who has returned home to Cleveland. Her dream, the 1st Annual Cleveland Photo Fest was realized this year and it is a huge success. Events like this one, usually start small and grow, but not this one. Through lots of hard work, very little sleep, and the help of friends, Laura, Herbert Ascherman Jr., founder and director of Cleveland Photographic Workshop and Jim Szudy, freelance photographer and founder of Gemini Developers, have attracted the attention of a great many, and not only local, national and international photographers.
