AUDIO: Bill Judge on Barberton Infrastructure

Written by
The city of Barberton continues to find new and innovative ways of revamping its image.

Bill Judge, the mayor of Barberton, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the infrastructure in the city. From road repairs to retaining businesses, Judge believes the town’s infrastructure is quite healthy. PPG, BW, and Stark State serve as anchors inside the city limits.

Memorial Day weekend is a nice time to grab a free bike in the Metro Parks, according to Judge and Ray. Barberton has three bike stations for the trails, and they are open through November.

Cuyahoga Falls has a number of destinations for locals to check out, and those areas continue to improve.

Don Walters, the mayor of Cuyahoga Falls, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about what is happening near Portage Crossing and down by the waterfront. First, Walters talked about Front Street opening up for vehicle traffic, and how businesses want to be a part of the revamped area. Down the street off Graham Road, Menards has come together, and the mayor said it was a long time coming for the arrival of the big box store.

As far as the talk of a new high school for Cuyahoga Falls, Walters says a measure will be on the ballots in November 2019 for voters. He believes a new school will be beneficial for security and monetary reasons, saying it will end up being cheaper in the long run to build a new facility than to sink money into an aging one.

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and many who have endured cabin fever throughout the cold months are looking to flee town for a few days. However, it is handy to have a few pointers at one's disposal.

Brian Thomas, the president of Akron AAA, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to go over some travel tips for the busy weekend. Thomas says a record number of travelers will be on the roads this weekend, with a figure around 42 million people in their cars. He says the time to avoid being on the freeways is during rush hour on Thursday, with many getting a jump on the long weekend.

Akron AAA has two locations in the area, with one downtown on Rosa Parks Drive and the other in Fairlawn.

AUDIO: John Gramuglia Steps Aside At Wadsworth

Written by
After over thirty years and 369 wins under his belt, John Gramuglia has decided to pass the torch.

The head coach of the Wadsworth wrestling team joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to look back on his decorated career with the Grizzlies. Gramuglia felt this was the right time to step aside and give the program some new blood. He feels the program must continue to evolve, and knows it is in good hands.

Gramuglia will not be going far. Though he won’t be head coach anymore, he plans on guiding the team in a less hands-on role, and will help further develop the youth program.

New Curious Creatures Coming to Akron Zoo!

Written by

(Akron Zoo) – The Akron Zoo is adding new animals to its popular exhibit, Curious Creatures. Throughout the month of June, guests will begin to see new animals on exhibit, such as tree monitors, flamboyant flower beetles, spotted turtles, pinkfall trigger fish, spotted jellyfish and more.

The Partula snail will also now be featured in Curious Creatures. The Akron Zoo has had great success in past years breeding the Partula snail, which became extinct in the wild in the 1990s after a carnivorous snail species was introduced to the islands of Tahiti. In 2016 and 2017, the Akron Zoo and several other zoos sent shipments of snails to Tahiti and the snails were successfully introduced into a predator-free reserve.

Curious Creatures opened in June 2017 and featured animals with strange and unique adaptations. The exhibit features over 20 different species, plus several interactive areas, including the Learning Lab.

The Akron Zoo is open 361 days a year. Hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and admission is $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens, $9 for children (ages 2-14). Children under two are free and parking is $3. For more information visit www.akronzoo.org or call (330) 375-2550.

Founded in 1953, the Akron Zoo is a non-profit, world conservation zoo with over 700 animals from around the world. Located just west of Downtown Akron, the zoo strives to connect your life to wildlife while inspiring lifelong learning and conservation action. The Akron Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). With its more than 200 accredited members, AZA is a leader in global wildlife conservation, and your link to helping animals in their native habitats.
