Editor’s Corner

Our hearts go out to Terry from Derry Columnist Terry Boyle, whose mother is gravely ill.  You are in our thoughts and prayers Terry. 

You’ve heard about the new movie, “Black 47,” haven’t you? It’s getting rave reviews for authenticity to the time, great acting and more. It is the first time this story has been told in a mainstream movie – Irish Network Cleveland will be hosting a showing at the Capitol Theatre in Gordon Square on Sunday November 11th, 7pm. There is a nominal charge. 

We keep a growin’! Problem: We have neglected the little ones in our newsmagazine. Solution: Please welcome new Columnist Dottie Wenger, who will entertain the little ones, and the ones young at heart, with her Kid’s Craic (Irish for Good Time) column, this month on page 22 . Also, please welcome Chef extraordinaire Katie Gagne, who presents her Cooking up a Hooley in the Kitchen recipe, this month on page 21.

Thanks to your support, we now have 22 columnists, plus a staff of four amazing and gifted worker bees, to bring you the OhioIANews each month; Happy Thanksgiving Indeed!  Please keep telling those who own businesses to advertise, Irish or not; send them our way so we can keep that a growin’, goin’!

Next month concludes our 12thyear.  Lordy, we are blessed.  Thank you for all of your support, long may it live.

Problem:  #MeToo #StopTheViolence #AllLivesMatter #BelieveWomen #opiods #HeforShe #Guns #StoptheInsanity

Solution: Vote

We salute all of our veteran’s. To each of them, and you, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, full of recognition of blessings, and the grateful, generous, humble heart, to say Thank You.
