The editor of the Chagrin Solon Sun opines that Solon leaders have a dilemma on their hands about the Solon Center for the Arts investigation.
The editor of the Chagrin Solon Sun says in an editorial that the Solon city leaders have a dilemma on their hands in how they handle an investigation into irregularities at the Solon Center for the Arts. The editor writes: Upon reviewing the documentation provided by the city, it would seem if Prasser was guilty of anything, it would be excessive naivete.

In an editorial, Chagrin Solon Sun writes that 'something needs to be done and we believe it needs to be a mixture of lethal and non-lethal methods.'
In an editorial published Sunday, The Chagrin Solon Sun applauds the city for its comprehensive deer management plan efforts but worries that the Solon Deer Preservation Act will scuttle those efforts. That program, though, could be doomed before it is given a proper chance to succeed if voters approve the Deer Preservation Act slated to appear on the ballot this fall. This measure was put on the ballot by those who staunchly oppose using any lethal means to control the deer herd and would prevent the city from using any lethal methods to thin the herd.
