Court bears Seiberling name

Full story: Akron Beacon Journal

In his soft-spoken voice, retired U.S. Rep. John F. Seiberling called the adorning of his name on the Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in downtown Akron an exaggeration of his importance.

Who really cares? What did he ever do for Akron except allow the Rubber Companies to leave?

I am Big Bro Don.
We will build my building next the Courthouse and block it out. We do not care about homeland security issues.

With all respect to former Congressman John Seiberling - congratulations.

But in an effort to rewrite history - the ABJ has failed to do its research.

While we are congratulating John Seiberling - let us not forget who made the federal building possible - just by look at the cornerstone - and while it was federal pork at its finest -

The cornetrstone reads - Richard Nixon 1970

And who was the member of Congress who made that possible?

William Ayres who ably served the 14th Congressional District from 1951-1971.

His motto "Ayres Cares" was not phony - but a true description of his character.

So congratulations to John Seiberling.

And thank you William Ayres

People of Barberton beware. Rumors is that the City of Barberton is about to drill a gas well on the Tuscora Park property. This is supposedly the same land that was sold to the hospital for "expansion". Does this appear to be expansion or were the people conned?

John Seiberling did much for the conservation and historic preservation movement in this country. He was not wealthy--his grandparents were but they lost their money in a hostile takeover of Goodyear. Meanwhile his contributions continue on in places, oh, such as Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Park.

What have YOU all done lately to serve your fellow Ohioans or Akronites?
