March 19th

Memory Care to open on May 1

SOLON– The Solon Retirement Village announced the opening of Memory Care, the newest addition to the retirement campus. Memory Care will accommodate 12 individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia in a new addition constructed on the west side of the Solon Nursing Care Center. The campus received approval from the state to build this unit, a Chronic Confusion and Dementing Illness, or CCDI, in November 2010, in addition to gaining approval to build a new skilled/acute care addition, slated to open later this summer.

Dance-Mor Ballroom is an all-ages time warp

SWISHER– In 1932 the Paramount Dance Pavilion got its start and a musical roadhouse legend was founded. Though set in downtown Swisher, next to the railroad tracks, don’t let the small-town look of the place fool you. The greatest of the greats have crooned here: Lawrence Welk, the Dorsey Brothers, Glen Miller, Russ Morgan, Guy Lombardo, Sonny James, the Boxtops, Barbara Fairchild, the Buckinghams, Stonewall Jackson, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Bobby Vinton, Gene Vincent, Bobby Goldsboro, Bobby Vee, Conway Twitty, Joe Diffie; they’ve all played here.

Streetscape, Highway 1 turn lanes in new city budget

SOLON– Obscured by the smoldering of a looming expanded burn ban, the city of Solon has adopted its budget for the upcoming year.
Two long-awaited projects– a Main Street streetscape project and the reconfiguration of Highway 1’s intersection with 5th Street– are included in the $4.1 million fiscal blueprint for 2012-2013.
The Solon City Council held its public hearing and adopted the budget at its March 7 meeting.
The tax impact of the new budget will be minimal, with the city’s overall levy decreasing slightly from the current $10.71202 per $1,000 assessed valuation to $10.71190.

Walkin'

I’m not sure what Arizona’s motto is, but I have a few suggestions.
Sabra and I are here over spring break to take in a couple of Cubs spring training games, golf and visit friends in Tucson.
Like a blind man giving his impression of an elephant, I should keep in mind that what I feel about this state is based on limited experiences, but not knowing everything has never stopped me before from expressing opinions.
