SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio -- How many times have you heard: “The only thing that is constant is change”? Greek philosopher Heraclitus has been credited with that gem, but you have lived it. You lived it in your family, on the job, in the community, and as you browse these pages. Perhaps you are pondering: To downsize? To upsize? To move? Stay put? Start a new hobby or job? Let a previous vocation go? And let’s not even begin taking stock of the smaller-scale decisions like a new haircut or perm. Though the cosmetic change may seem trivial in the grand scheme, hats and indoor activities see a remarkable comeback when we no longer quite recognize ourselves in the mirror. We love some changes, like watching a bud turn into a blossom or seeing a cloudy sky clear into a stunning blue canvas. In our region, we even cherish fall for its vivid, surprising panorama. And, if you will dare admit it, the day of the surprise snow -- when we thought we were over and done with that … [Read more...] about Change is a constant: Sun Messages

The Pettaway neighborhood, tucked between Scott Street on the west, Interstate 30 on the east, 15th Street on the north and Roosevelt Road on the south, is an architecture catalog in life-sized 3D. New brick Georgian-style homes and ultra-modern houses framed in Cor-ten steel and corrugated metal mingle with turn-of-the-century cottages and homes created from multiple shipping containers joined into a single unit. There’s even a “tiny house,” a 270-square-foot home behind a wooden farm fence. The eclectic nature of the neighborhood bordering the Mansion/MacArthur Park historic districts gleefully shouts, “We don’t need to follow no stinking design rules!” There was a time, some 30 years ago, when the Pettaway neighborhood shouted something more along the lines of “Stay out!” But no longer. Today, it’s a place in which new residents are finding community, a neighborhood a future homeowner calls “fun and funky.”It is also … [Read more...] about A new look for Pettaway

UPDATE at 10:00 a.m. Nov. 19, 2018: This story was originally published May 11, 2013. We're bringing it back to observe the 55th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. Just past dusk, in the leafy splendor where Turtle Creek Boulevard merges with Highland Park’s exclusive Lakeside Drive, Lee Harvey Oswald was on his knees digging in a pile of brush next to the MKT rail line, now the more gentrified Katy Trail.A few dozen yards from the houses of Dallas’ most prominent citizens, the future presidential assassin pulled his mail-order rifle from its hiding spot and walked toward a row of spacious Turtle Creek homes.As part of a methodically crafted plan, Oswald had spent the previous month making hopeful detours to the main post office on Ervay Street as he waited for his Excalibur to arrive. At the end of March 1963, he came home with the prize — a 1940 Italian surplus rifle with a telescopic sight.Bewildered by the purchase, his … [Read more...] about Before gunning for JFK, Oswald targeted ex-Gen.
