NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio – They came not so much to hear but to be heard and one by one North Ridgeville residents took their turn before their mayor and city council to share with emotion their personal tales of what they’ve endured over the last week and the long road ahead.
Many of them live along Gina Drive, Debbie Drive and Pitts Boulevard an area of the city continuously hard hit by flooding with many residents dropped after recent floods by their insurance and forced to deal with the repair of their homes yet again out of their own pocket.
“It’s a financial disaster for people that are on fixed incomes,” said 82-year-old Malcom Mahaffey, who lives on Gina Drive and has had to replace his water heater four times in four years.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
