Every good gardener knows the vegetable garden needs a thorough cleaning at the end of the growing season. Getting rid of all vegetation and debris is very important to defeat garden pest eggs and disease. A clean garden bed protected with mulch or a cover crop enriches the soil for great veggies next year. However, in our flowerbeds and yards we don’t need to be so particular. We can help the bees, birds and insects by not being so tidy.
Children & Families
Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. Parents should walk with their children, do not drive in a vehicle following slowly, as this is unsafe for others crossing streets. If children are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. Trick-or-treat hours in the City of Euclid are from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and children should visit homes with porch lights turned on. If you are handing out treats, turn on your porch light, clear away anything in the yard that children can trip over, and restrain your pets.

My Mom chose Corrigan Deighton to handle her final arrangements. I was very pleased with her choice. Rick Tolley guided me through some very difficult times.

They gave me excellent advice and handled my Mom's service with class and dignity. I will always be thankful to Rick for helping me through the roughest week of my life. I give Corrigan Deighton my highest recommendation.
My name is Anthony Sweet and I am a sophomore at Benedictine High School. As a substantial biker in Euclid, I am extremely happy about the new bike lanes and racks in Euclid. The construction workers did an amazing job installing all the bike racks and bike paths. In the summer, I bike about 14 miles every day, if not more. The new biking conditions bring attention that there are a lot of bikers out there and drivers need to be careful. With these new additions bikers can feel more safe.
Have you ever been to a stuffy, black-tie fundraising affair and thought to yourself “Ugh, I wish I had just sent in a check.” Or maybe, like me, the limits of your calendar (or your budget) force you to make choices about which local causes to support.

Thanks to the creativity and collaboration of several Euclid organizations – you can have a great time doing good on September 23rd at the Shore Cultural Centre’s “Fall Crawl and Casino Night” – with proceeds benefitting three worthy causes.

A walk along the beach to capture a spectacular Lake Erie sunset, a visit to a much-loved family vacation destination… Hospice of the Western Reserve has found a way to allow patients and families at David Simpson Hospice House and other locations to re-live memories like these in real time through a program called A Flight to Remember.
The innovative program – the first of its kind in the United States – is offered in partnership with Aerial Anthropology, a Cleveland-based provider of aerial videography and photography. It allows hospice patients to experience a live, bird’s-eye view of a place that is meaningful to them using drone technology. The experience is offered at no cost to patients and families cared for by Hospice of the Western Reserve and its affiliate, Hospice of Medina County.
How does it work? The hospice team works individually with patients and their families to determine the location they would like to “visit.” Fly over zones must comply with FAA safety guidelines, so Aerial Anthropology works with the agency and the family to determine whether the desired site is feasible, and to coordinate arrangements with facilities on the ground. At a scheduled time, the family receives an email with a link to connect to a live feed of the drone video. The hospice patient or a designated family member serve as the “virtual pilot,” providing direction to the drone pilot by phone about what he or she would like to see. The flight can be viewed on laptops, tablets, or a Smart TV with Internet access. Experiences typically last 20 to 25 minutes.
On Friday, September 23rd from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., there will be an art walk in Downtown Euclid on Lakeshore Blvd. to feature the many photographs that were submitted for This Is Euclid, the city sponsored photography contest. Hundreds of photographs have been received, and you can view them all in the slide shows at www.cityofeuclid.com, under the Announcements tab.
