This past week you may have heard about a cat in Elyria that was frozen to the road and rescued by a Good Samaritan. Fortunately, our area is full of many good people! Because of the harsh weather conditions this past week, another cat (that we named “Olaf”) was found frozen to the side of the road on Ivy Lane here in Middleburg Heights.
A young man and “Good Samaritan” found the cat and immediately called Officer Laura Takacs who runs Animal Control for Middleburg Heights. Middleburg Heights Mayor Gary W. Starr and all members of city council want to thank this young man for making the call and staying with “Olaf” the cat until help could arrive. We’re sure he saved “Olaf’s ”life!
Olaf is a beautiful Persian -black and white cat with long hair! His body had to be shaved to complete the rescue but his fur will grow back.
“Wanted to let you know how great our service department is! Today, in spite of all the snow that came down, those guys were out there in the early morning plowing out the driveways of us seniors. Thank you for this service to our seniors, Mayor Starr, and a big thank-you to the guys who were plowing my drive at 8:30 this morning. You are to be commended!”
—Middleburg Heights resident Eileen Johnson
HERE WE GO AGAIN…AND AGAIN…AND AGAIN!
Without a doubt, it has been a busy winter season for our Service Department. The Service Department works around the clock when there is significant snow or a storm headed in our direction. This year it seems we have been battling the snow and glacial temperatures weekly, if not daily.
Southwest General will offer an educational session on Health Care Reform and Ohio’s Health Care Exchange on Saturday, March 1, 10 a.m., in the Williams Conference Center (located in the basement of the L. Jon Schurmeier Pavilion [Building C]).
Participants will learn more about what the Health Care Exchange is, how to enroll, how to see if you qualify for reduced premium costs and more.
Time is running out! The month of March is extremely important for those considering coverage through the exchange. Open enrollment ends Monday, March 31, 2014. After that, most people will have to wait until 2015 for coverage, and also could incur tax penalties for non-coverage for 2014.
Exchange counselors and representatives from the area’s participating insurance companies will be present to answer specific plan questions and even help attendees enroll. Light refreshments will be provided.
