Medina Mayor Gives State of the City Address

Mayor Dennis Hanwell presented his annual State of the City address to the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce, Tuesday, where he talked about the importance of embracing business and maintaining industrial roads in the city.

He explained how Public Square has a very positive impact on everything the city does and how the city wants to do everything in its power to help businesses on the square be successful.  He also sets aside one day a month to attend ribbon-cuttings and the city makes a big deal about every new business that opens.

Project: LEARN Seeks Tutors in Lodi


Project: LEARN of Medina County is looking for volunteer tutors in Lodi to help residents prepare and study for a GED certificate.  The nonprofit will have an informational meeting 10 to 11:30 am, Sept. 11 at Lodi Library, 635 Wooster St.

The group received a $7,000 grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation in May to provide the programs for literacy and English as a second language for adults in Lodi. Lodi has a higher percentage of adults without their GED than anywhere else in the county, according to executive director Carla Robinson.

The Dollar General grant will allow for the tutoring program to run until June of 2016 and will provide equipment, workbooks, calculators, GED prep work and computers.
