I am writing in response to the story "Ravenna plan raises ire," (Record-Courier, Nov. 14). I agree with Brad Crislip of Shorts-Spicer-Crislip Funeral Home that I am also tired of losing things to Kent.
The Ravenna vital statistics office should not go to Kent. Ravenna still exists. If I read one more thing about another business opening in Kent I will scream.
I am a Ravenna girl born and raised and I'm sick of losing everything to Kent. They have a major university. Isn't that enough?
Ravenna needs to start evening the odds with Kent. Thank heavens we have a realtor, Jack Kohl, in this town who is willing to take on projects and developments.
Ravenna needs business and economy, so a big thanks to local Ravenna business owners who stay open and are willing to try and make a go of it. I try to shop locally and do business in town as much as possible. Everyone else who is proud of their town should do the same.
No more losing business, restaurants and office space to Kent. Think of your hometown. It needs you.

Well said Heather. But City Hall running Ravenna like a business is more important. Soon, Mayor Bica, Kelly and the Health Board can explain the logic of doing away with this office. Sometimes people are more important than the $$ you may save. They need to listen to Brad and the funeral home Directors.
