Early Voting has Begun


Beginning this week, Ohioans will decide whether to enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution and to legalize recreational marijuana.

The hot-button issues could drive higher-than-usual voter turnout in the November 7 election, which also includes a participatory budget charter amendment in Cleveland, as well as contests for municipal judges, city council seats, and school boards.

So far in Cuyahoga County, elections officials have processed 43,471 absentee ballot applications, a number that tracks with the higher-than-average voter turnout in August, when voters overwhelmingly rejected Issue 1, which would have made it harder to change the Ohio Constitution.

This time around, Issue 1 is for abortion rights. Issue 2, meanwhile, would change state law to legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 years and older while setting up rules for the state to regulate the industry.

We have four weeks until Election Day.

One parking lot may be entered from East 30th Street; the other lot may be entered from Chester Avenue. The parking lot entrances are well-marked and are steps away from the Board of Elections building.

Jaycox pens his story of hope; donates proceeds

From The Heights Observer

Cleveland Heights resident Kemp Jaycox has published his memoirA Race Against Time: A Memoir about MS, Love, Loss and Life Lessons. Sales of the book will benefit the Forest Hill Presbyterian Church Environmental Sustainability Fund and the Accelerated Cure Project for MS.

Jaycox, age 50, was busy leading an active life of sports, travel, volunteering, and working in his environmental/ sustainability career. Then, a bout with a stomach virus caused his immune system to overreact, resulting in a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis at the age of 30. Now, 20 years later, in a race against time as his body shuts down and makes the simplest task impossible, he is intent on telling his life story to offer hope to others.
