A Note From The Publisher

In this edition of the Parma Observer, we are offering our readers something different: a new column from Rick Haase, a name familiar to many of you for his many years as a print journalist in the communities we serve. Haase will bring his inimitable writing style as a columnist to our pages each month, where he is already a regular contributor in his job handling public relations and special projects for the city of Parma Heights.

The column will focus exclusively on what’s happening in - and the people of the City of Parma Heights.

Haase, a long-time local reporter, has garnered numerous local and national awards for his writing and has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, politicians, and many everyday people, each with their own story to tell. He’s lunched with Oscar winners Halle Berry and Elizabeth Taylor, and bowled with former First Lady Barbara Bush (at Parma Heights’ Yorktown Lanes), to bring you exclusive scoops and unforgettable stories. His experiences and expertise provide a unique perspective that you won’t want to miss. We hope you will enjoy it.

If you have information you’d like to see featured, you can email it to: haase@parmaheightsoh.gov.
