This may be the district's one and only shot
The fate of Issue 116, the bond issue for the Strongsville schools, will be decided at the polls next Tuesday. If you haven't already voted, here are some things you might want to know before you cast your ballot. 1. It may be now or never. Officials have acknowledged if the bond issue doesn't pass this year, it would be a much tougher sell later. Superintendent John Krupinski calls this time "our perfect storm" to pass a bond issue. Biggest factor: Most homeowners would see their taxes rise only slightly, even though it's a large bond issue. "This is an opportunity we won't have again," Ward 3 Councilman Jim Carbone agreed. "Bond rates are low, construction rates are low and we have money we can recapture." The bond issue would allow …

Sunday, October 28, 2012
We asked Patch readers last week to share their endorsements and invited them to blog about it. Here's a round up of what YOU said.
Last week we asked you, the Patch readers, to share your political opinions and you certainly answered. Our story asking for your comments in reaction to three of the state's major newspaper endorsements for presidential candidates attracted more than 400 comments. And in our unscientific poll, 56 percent of you endorsed Mitt Romney for president. As promised, here's a round up of political blogs posted to Patch sites in Ohio over the last week. Don't see a blog from your town? It's not too late to have your say. And it's easy to blog. Just go to your home Patch site and click on the "start a blog" link under the editor's top four stories of the day (on the mid left side of the page).

Is your phone ringing and ringing?
Lately it seems like there's only Ohio voters in this presidential election. And the candidates are doing everything possible to talk to us. They visit, they send us letters and they call. Boy do they call. In our house, the phone rings from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sometimes it rings several times in an hour. The caller ID shows local numbers, numbers from other parts of the country and my personal favorite 1. That's right just the number 1. And you can't block the number 1. I tried. Sometimes they're political parties, sometimes they're the politicians or their wives (Ann Romney robocalled us one time), sometimes they are survey takers from Quinnipiac University and other university researchers. Is there a way to make it just stop? We're …
