Trucks and SUVs at the Top of Sales in Ohio

Trucks and SUVs at the Top of Sales in Ohio

Bigger vehicles are better vehicles… or at least that might be the motto for automobile buyers in Northern Ohio. The auto sales of SUVs and trucks are at the top of the sales for automobiles, according to the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association. The president, Lou Vitantonio, stated: “Sales of SUVs and trucks continue to carry the sales load. This is the result of current consumer preference and low operating cost, including fuel pricing.”

auto sales

Basically, gas prices have lowered, and fuel efficiency is getting better with new cars. As a result, customers are favoring the bigger vehicles like SUVs and pickup trucks. This is true for many companies, including Classic Chevrolet in Mentor.

Apparently, the biggest seller last year was the Chevy Equinox. The General Manager, Mark Carroll, talked about the increased sales. He stated: “With a redesign and Chevy incentives, people left the small sedans and went up to the SUVs and the Equinox, in particular.” Sales went up at both the national and local levels.

In fact, Vitantonio stated that auto sales have been up in general for the last few years. He said that its “been on an upswing since 2010.” While it may begin to drop soon, as the market tends to do, the gas prices may keep the business going strong.

Looking for a new vehicle in 2019?

For prospective buyers for this year, he makes a few suggestions. He stated: “Identify what your needs are for a new vehicle, set a budget and decide on whether you want to buy or lease. Research the current offering of vehicles that are available.”

He also talked about the increase in technology, which may impact decision making with buying new vehicles. He said: “There are a number of new technologies that you may or may not want in your new vehicle as well.”

For now, it is clear that the larger vehicles are still popular in Ohio… but will that change in 2019? What kind of car are you driving this year?

Fake News?!

Fake News?!

SAN ANTONIO- TX. The city was recently hit with a shock! Coincidentally, after someone posted a new and quite controversial Holocaust exhibit, people didn’t respond positively. The sign stated two things: MAGA (Make America Great Again) and #FakeNews.

Even Donald Trump, himself, said it was fake news. Many of the community stated that the sign was a denial of the historic genocide.

A groundskeeper originally discovered the sign. The general public’s response has not been a positive one. A lot of people believe that this is a clear sign of prejudice but others refuse to acknowledge that this hatred is still very evident in the world.

Their holocaust museum was all but a shock. The museum director made a public statement. She doesn’t think everyone sees the sign as a clear connection to the modern prejudicial tendencies. The politics of the situation became tattered and broken by standards the declining equal state of our country.

Unfortunately, someone posted the sign reading “Fake News” and MAGA right by the entrance of the exhibit. Although responding puts Donald Trump in a bad light, he still attempted to negate the shocking sign.

After that, police discovered the sign early Tuesday morning the investigation began. Sadly, the chief officer of the investigation doesn’t consider the crime a hate crime, but claims it is only political advocacy.

Donald Trump, by poorly responding, is against these moments of habitual negation, and how does that make you feel? In Some people in the community are outraged, otherwise, it’s just people responding to allegations. So what do you think?

Truck Drivers Saving Lives – 35 Years Later

Truck Drivers Saving Lives – 35 Years Later

 

The Accident

This November marks the 35th anniversary of a young 17-year old woman’s horrific accident on Interstate 40 in Tennessee. That day, 10 semi-truck drivers came together to help save her life. None of them were medically trained. However, they followed their instincts to save precious time and keep the woman calm and alert before medical personnel arrived.

 

The woman’s name was Gracie Parker (now Gracie Rosenberger). The lead trucker of the group that day noticed her speed past and then slump over the steering wheel. Gracie’s car swerved back and forth before finally crashing. The lead trucker notified others of the dangerous driving activity. The drivers created a barricade so other drivers could not go through and possibly get hurt. When her car crashed, it flew and flipped before landing in the bed of a creek. They noticed it there, burning. The truckers all pulled over, called for help, and ran to her with fire extinguishers.

 

They put out the fire. Noticing her horrific wounds, the drivers asked her questions to keep her alert. They provided comfort and security while waiting for help to arrive. These truck driver heroes helped prevent worse injuries for Gracie and got her the help she needed.

 

Giving Back

Gracie has faced gruesome medical treatments and struggles since the accident. She’s had 80 operations, both legs amputated, and other treatments. But, despite the injuries she faced, she and her husband, Peter Rosenberger, have taken their struggles and used them for good.

 

Peter leads the organization Standing With Hope, hosts a radio show for caregivers, and is the author of the book Hope for the Caregiver. The two collaborated to write Gracie’s story in a book entitled Gracie Standing With Hope. Gracie spends time helping other amputees and people with disabilities.

 

The truck drivers gave their hearts and their help that day. Now, Gracie and Peter give theirs. Without those 10 truckers’ help that day 35 years ago, who knows what might have happened?

Why Cleveland is the Home of Rock and Roll

Why Cleveland is the Home of Rock and Roll

Rock and RollCleveland has long been known as the birthplace of Rock and Roll. While many historic events took place in this location, people speculate that these happenings haven’t happened by chance.

 

The history of rock started back in the early 1950s when a radio disc jockey named Alan Freed started his radio show on WJW in Cleveland. It was gaining popularity because of the kind of music he was playing for his white listeners.

 

White folks were listening to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, African Americans were listening to rhythm and blues, which was referred to as “race music.”

 

When Freed and the owner of the Record Rendezvous record store, Leo Mintz, became good friends, Ultimately, this friendship resulted in an extensive cooperation of merging the efforts and benefiting from each other.

 

Mintz convinced Freed to start playing this music on his radio show. They had to change the genre to “rock ‘n’ roll”. The term was borrowed from old blues tunes and means “to fornicate.”

 

The teenage generation, unlike middle aged-people, positively reacted to the new genre. It evoked the spirit of rebellion and gradually revolutionized the music history.

 

Further, Cleveland became the place where most of the musical prominent events took place. Elvis Presley played his very first concert in Cleveland at Brooklyn High School. In 1966, The Beatles played a concert inside Cleveland’s iconic Public Hall.

 

Additionally, in 1970ies Cleveland started broadcasting WMMS-FM local radio station. Most of the DJs played mainly what they wanted.  Thanks to WMMS, many artists and bands, like Rush, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac gained popularity.

 

Finally, Cleveland hosts The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The hall features the evolution of this musical and cultural phenomenon through more than 50 exhibits.

Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron's recreational programming

The Akron ’s parks need the help from its residents. That’s why the city is asking residents to give input through an online survey on Akron’s parks to make improvements.

 

The city asks residents to share their knowledge about recreational amenities, as well as their interests and needs. That will help to develop a strategic plan to improve the community, as well as recreational programming.

 

The survey takes only 5-7 minutes to fill in. And most importantly, it’s anonymous.

 

Mayor Dan Horrigan says that public spaces and recreation are sorts of stimulation for neighborhood development.

 

Horrigan is proud of the recreation service that the city provides.

 

Yet, his goal is to evaluate or change the way they provide services and modernize it.

 

The shortest way to is to ask the citizens what they need from the city government. Asking citizens for their opinion is a way to enhance public engagement.

 

Survey reveals the things that need to be added or improved. Moreover, it finds out how much citizens value existing offerings.

 

The question is how to attract new park users. To do that one should know what people enjoy so that the city can better serve them.

 

Recreation Bureau Manager encouraged Akron residents to use their services and to speak up their mind.

 

There are so-called ‘’friend’s groups’’ near each Akron park. They help to keep the parks clean and inviting.

 

There is a partnership between the city and Friends of the Metro Parks. Is there a better way of succeeding than to gather people for the same goal?

 

For better results, the city came up with a study that includes 161 Akron parks. It covers 3804 acres.

 

There is no age discrimination for Akron’s residents.  11 Akron community centers, as well as Balch Street fitness center is for the use of the resident of any age group.

 

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Target has some great news for Ohioans! This week, the company announced that they will be expanding their “Drive Up” service in 5 states, one of which is Ohio.

 

The “Drive Up” service gives customers the option to place an order online or on the Target app and then pick it up outside one of the stores. Customers in Cleveland, Columbus, and many other cities can now get whatever they need while remaining in their vehicle.

 

TargetIt’s very quick and easy! You place your order on the Target app, choose the location that you want, then once you get there all you do is wait in your car by the store. The app will notify you when your order will be ready for pickup so you don’t have to wait.

 

Once you are ready to head to the store, you choose the “I’m on the Way” button to inform the employees that you will be there soon. When you arrive at your designated store, you park in one of the “Drive Up” parking spots and wait for the employee to come out.

 

In a matter of a few minutes, the employee will bring out your order and load it in your vehicle and you’re ready to get on with your day! Quick and easy right?

 

Not every single item in stores will have the “Drive Up” service option. However, the majority will. Worst case scenario, you can also choose the store pick-up option which is just as fast.

 

You will also have to pay for any item when you purchase it with the “Drive Up” option. You cannot pay in store or the employee, it should be done on the app. Otherwise, it will not let your order go through.

 

The first city to get this new service in Ohio is Columbus and the next will be Cleveland. The other cities have not been determined or announced by Target.
