Granger man raises concerns about proposed SR 18 project by Jon | on February 06, 2020

To the editor:

To anyone not fully aware of the scope of the Menards store and shopping center being proposed in Granger Township, this shopping center will be bigger than Summit Mall and will impact not only the residents of Granger Township, but also residents of Bath, Sharon, Copley anyone living in the Yellow Creek district, which is prone to flooding. This will also impact anyone traveling state Route (SR) 18 between Interstate 71 and I-77, as well as all the feeder roads, which has not even been considered.

The problem is this project has been pushed through by the Granger Zoning with no regard for the Granger by-laws, the will of the residents, the effect on property values, noise and light pollution, traffic problems, as well as any impact to the surrounding communities and the Yellow Creek flooding situation.

There has been no legitimate traffic study done and/or concern for the water and sewer capacity, as well as the police and fire services needed.

What about the second large parcel that is planned for another big box store and many 2-acre out lots for many other businesses along SR 18 and Medina Line Road? Do you think a large box store like a Meijer supercenter chain open seven days a week, 364 days a year and other businesses like Taco Bell and McDonalds with 24-hour drive through windows would produce more traffic than a warehouse and a dentist office? They have no idea what else will be possibly coming.

There are three Granger Township trustees and one has family that owns a good portion of the property involved and has recused herself. That means two people will consider and make a decision on something that will affect not only the standard of living for Granger residents but for all the previous mentioned communities and residents traveling SR 18. In my opinion, they are totally lacking the information they need, as well as not telling the public the total truth. It has been said many times by the Zoning Board and trustees that their hands are tied, and this is totally not true. What goes into the PDD [Planned Development District] is totally the decision of the township and there is precedent to prove it. Either they are immune to what has been written by the Granger forefathers to preserve the integrity of the township, or they are unqualified to make these decisions.

Please express your thoughts to the Granger Township trustees and/or attend the trustees meeting on March 12 [at 6 p.m.] at the Granger Township Hall at 3717 Ridge Road. (330-239-3611)

Excerpts from President Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address (March 4, 1837)

... But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government....
... You have no longer any cause to fear danger from abroad; your strength and power are well known throughout the civilized world, as well as the high and gallant bearing of your sons. It is from within, among yourselves--from cupidity, from corruption, from disappointed ambition and inordinate thirst for power--that factions will be formed and liberty endangered. It is against such designs, whatever disguise the actors may assume, that you have especially to guard yourselves. You have the highest of human trusts committed to your care. Providence has showered on this favored land blessings without number, and has chosen you as the guardians of freedom, to preserve it for the benefit of the human race. May He who holds in His hands the destinies of nations make you worthy of the favors He has bestowed and enable you, with pure hearts and pure hands and sleepless vigilance, to guard and defend to the end of time the great charge He has committed to your keeping....

Quotes from Ronald Reagan

"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under."

"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth."

"I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born."

"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives."

"Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States."

Bitter Clinger Bullets

1. The greatest danger to America is it's rejection of God and His laws.

2. Liberals lie, even to other liberals.

3. Liberal logic: capital punishment is immoral, but abortion is not.

4. My biggest shock the past 5 years was learning not how liberal the Democrats are, but how liberal the Republicans are.

5. Fiscally speaking, second to our enormous debt, unlawful immigration is America's greatest threat.

6. Since both liberals and conservatives spend their dollars with corporations who fund liberalism, can conservatism ever win?

7. Pundits are shocked at Obama's lies. In the Illinois Senate he voted for infanticide 4 times--why should his lying shock us?!

8. There is no such thing as term limits. Career politicians never leave government. They just run for a higher office!

9. When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right, is of no consequence.

10. A Christian can not claim to be pro-life if he willingly funds abortion with his Facebook page.

Patriot - One who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests.

The United States of America is a great country and loved by many.  Many people believe that to be a patriot, you need to have done something extraordinary like Paul Revere, George Washington or other early Americans. As you can see from the Webster definition above, that is not true.
All too often, patriotism and being a patriot is associated with a man and the ladies are overlooked.  Sure, there was Betsy Ross and ???  Yet, a lady can be a patriot if she fits the definition.
