As a citizen of Ravenna the last 40 years, I try not to get too downhearted about the evaporation of some downtown businesses to greener pastures. I have no control over that.
However, I do have control over voting to keep the Portage Park District a viable bright spot in our county. The bike trails, hiking paths, boating and fishing are great leisure activities that make life more enjoyable. Plus having these perks doesn't hurt the value of my house.
So for all of you (not only Ravenna) in Portage County that take pride in your community and home, vote "Yes" on Issue 10 to support Portage Parks.
