The Newsteader is now an Official Skywarn Weather Spotter for Akron!

Earlier this month I took a training class to become an official “weather spotter” for the National Weather Service!


It was a 2 hour class about everything weather.  My new duties will kick in mostly in Winter, but in Summer as well when severe weather is forecasted.

The weather is different in my yard than it is just a block away.  Fascinating!

Anyway, the next thing to go up will be a new weather station, right here by my “office”, and I’ll have VERY accurate weather reports for you in the future!  -JAP-

School Budget Vote TUESDAY

Elections are important.  Voting is important.  Too many people say “My vote doesn’t count” and/or “I don’t follow politics”. They may have a point in national politics, but locally is a whole different animal.

YOU, yes YOU and your friends too.  Your votes COUNT!  Especially when only a fraction of the town bothers to show up.

Tomorrow, we vote on the school budget, a few resolutions and Board of Education Members.  There are 5 people running to fill 3 seats.  YOUR vote matters.

Here are scans of the meat and potatoes part of the mailer from Akron Schools regarding the vote tomorrow.  Polls are open 12 Noon til 9:00 PM at Akron High School Gym #3
