Who doesnt hold the hand of a 2 year old in a parking lot? What were the otherRead More "passengers" doing? I know that we held our children's hands until they were in their teens because young children dont understand the danger. Sad and totally preventable.

So sad, My heart goes out to these folks. You can not watch children 24x7. A parking lot is aRead More dangerous place for children. A lesson to all of us. I hope these poor folks do not have to pay the extra cost for EMS services in Franklin Township. This would be an insult on top of a terrible accident.

Anyone that goes in first should also be able to be armed - that only makes sense - police orRead More responders

There hasn’t been a single day in over a month that I haven’t seen a deer, and moreRead More often than not they are running across a street in groups. I actually think the deer may have started a gang. They are out to get us. They travel in packs and openly flaunt the law. They trespass on my property and rarely leave when I ask them to. They have no problem damaging the landscaping around my house and one was recently spotted standing on my front porch. I think he was trying to break into my house. This is getting serious. The deer gangs must be stopped

Lori, Welcome to the club. Mine was September 27th, 2007 in North Royalton who have just as manyRead More deer. Watched as Bambi took out drivers door glass part of front left drivers fender and rear drivers door. and it was either me or a guy in a nice 74 Vette behind me and i told him glad it was my Accord and not your fine machine. They bolt out so fast you just don't have time to react, so that woman who yelled at you was crazy. I have excellent peripheral vision and didn't see it till she was starting across the road. I grew up in rural PA and this is why we have hunting season to prevent the out of control deer population like this area has. Glad you are ok.

I feel your pain....my deer 'experience' was in April 2010 on Walker Road...
Kathleen O'Brien Wilhelm June 27, 2011 at 08:19 pm
Kill the deer! Hunters can kill one and share the others without a quota on the number to kill. IRead More read this article today and drove down Walker Road by the Legion and there was a dumb deer crossing in 8 am traffic. Human life is too important to do anything, but kill the deer--now.

Housing has slowed to a crawl in Avon Lake and everywhere else. The increase has been the unfetteredRead More growth of the deer population. Yes we can blame the builders, but we all would have to admit recently, that has not been the problem. The deer population has exploded in the last 2 years, and we really need to do something before there is really a tragedy. We are the dominant species on this planet. If it would make anyone feel better, why don't we give the meat away to the homeless?

I couldn't agree more, Kathleen! The deer have become more of a problem then they are worth. What doRead More they really add to the town? We need to get rid of the deer and use their lands to build up our economy! There are a lot of problems with the deer! They are wild animals, for one. They are hard to control. The other day there were deer in my yard looking at my children! How am I supposed to feel comfortable raising a family in this town with all these animals running around?

So is it true though that he escaped in 2011?? Why do they make it sound he just got out??
Lori E. Switaj September 4, 2013 at 10:18 am
Kristen, he was charged with an offense in 2011. He broke out of jail 2 weeks ago and seen in AvonRead More and Westlake yesterday.
