There Is A Kinder, Gentler Way To Thin The Deer Herd

Wildlife management is often a euphemism for killing, and the most beautiful creatures are typically the ones under fire. Why does Mayor Marie Gallo and Parma Heights City Council have this fixation with killing deer through hunting in city parks as the solution?  White-tails are wily by nature, and they turn understandably skittish around gun-packing strangers. An humane effort should be considered by the Cuyahoga County Mayors/City Managers Association and there could be a program with funding from humanitarians. Immunocontraception, a type of contraception that uses the deer’s own immune system to prevent pregnancy, is a viable alternative available to any city. The method has been shown to be effective in a wide range of species, including deer, is not harmful to animals; doesn’t pose a danger to humans; and provides a humane option for urban communities seeking to control the deer population.

Your Life Might Depend On It

If you peruse through the news stories in the national headlines you will see numerous stories of women lost or murdered, men shot and killed, and children lost or forgotten. And even though we see these news stories, we keep moving ahead with the belief that they are not an integral part of our own productive lives. That may be true because many of the stories are at a distance from us. But it always touches us in one way or another. We may start thinking about what kind of danger might be surrounding us or of others we know who suffered an unforeseen fate. So, take another look at the city you live in. The statistics may narrow down the chances of you being attacked, but the danger could be lurking from the corners of your safe world.

Tips To Attract Bees, And Butterflies

Parma Heights has created several "pocket parks" throughout the city. Instead of piles of mulch and empty benches, these spaces could feed and shelter bees, birds and butterflies.

Flooding Relief Projects Underway In Parma Heights

Basement flooding has been an issue for many residents in Parma Heights, and we are actively working on multiple solutions to help alleviate these issues. After three long years of working with the federal government, the City of Parma Heights received official approval for the Nathan Hale Retention Basin Project. We hope to break ground within the next six months once the bidding process is completed. Work will begin on the relining of a portion of the Blossom Avenue sanitary sewer line in order to reduce inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sanitary sewer system, and the city is partnering with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District for the construction of a detention basin behind Maplewood Road. These projects should help reduce basement flooding for both Parma Heights and Parma residents in that area of our cities. We are fortunate to have great partners, like the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, who assist us with projects that benefit our community as well as surrounding communities. We will continue to fight for flooding relief and solutions to help our community.

Among the many essential neighborhood institutions serving these communities was the theater. In the theater, immigrants could navigate their evolving national identities as they adjusted to life in a new country. For some, it allowed them to cling to their old-world heritage, while others used the theater to explore new-world realities. In this talk, Dr. Peter Graff will outline the history of these vibrant institutions and explore their importance to the people who brought them to life. In-person program. Registration required.

Shop Local This Easter-Small Business Matters

For peep's sake, I hope everyone gets the chance to "shop small" in preparation for the upcoming holidays of Easter and Passover. The small businesses in Parma Heights are egg-septional. If you are not lucky enough to know the people behind the counters where you go, don't worry, be hoppy. Perhaps now might be an egg-cellent time to make a change, look around and try a new place. On  2ND Friday, April 8th, select Pearl Road businesses in Parma Heights will be giving out Easter eggs, treats, and special giveaways. Some stores will be revealed on the Facebook page  "Parma Heights 2ND Fridays" That's egg-sactly right!  Ask friends, neighbors or some bunny for suggestions on the egg-citing independently-owned gems where you live and don't just hop over there and race through, but take the time and a little bit of effort to get to know the real heart and soul of Pearl Road, the mom & pop shops and family-operated favorites of the community, and you'll find a basket full of egg-citement. Shop small businesses hoppily ever after. And have an egg-celent Easter!
