An open letter to Richland County Ohio

As someone who has to drive into Richland County Ohio, and more specifically the city of Mansfield, I would like to educate the county engineers on how to take care of the roads when it snows.  First just let me say I am always shocked at how poor the roads in Mansfield are cleared during and after snow storms.  I see almost no roads cleared, and I really don’t think you know what road salt is.  Here’s a tip, if the weather forecast calls for snow, get the plow trucks out there BEFORE the roads are so covered in snow that cars can’t move.  And while those trucks are out there try laying down this new thing called salt, the rest of the state uses it and we really find it makes the roads safer to drive on.
Here is a link to the Ohio Department of Transportation contact page, I suggest you have your county engineer call ODOT and ask them about snow removal and how to use salt.
And while I’m at it, to the city of Mansfield, if your going to have one way roads that go up hill AND have multiple stop lights on that road, try plowing and salting that road before cars get stuck and spin their tires and are forced to turn around and go the wrong way on your one way road endangering not only the drive of the car but also other drivers on the road.  If you’d like an example of what I’m talking about, this is a major issue on North Mulberry Street, you need to plow and salt that road when it snows!
Seriously Richland County and Mansfield, get your act together, every other county and city I drive through has their roads cleaned or at least has trucks out cleaning the roads, but Richland County I’m shocked if I see one plow truck out, and that is a rare thing to see.

John Wick

John Wick seems like a joke of a film, but once you see it you’ll be in love with it.  It’s hard to understand without seeing the film, but it just has the right amount of action and feeling to keep you engaged throughout the entire film.  I honestly can’t say enough about this film, I just hope they make a trilogy out of this character.
The acting is great, and Keanu Reeves is at his best, less talking more fighting is his best.  The rest of the cast is fine, they all play their parts perfectly.  There really isn’t that much to say about the cast, they were fine and all but I just can’t say anyone stood out to me.
The action was amazing, the mix of martial arts and gun play was just amazing to watch.  It’s really fun, in a goofy way, to watch the fights knowing in the back of your head that it’s so over the top it’s not to be believed, and yet your inner child will yell at you “shut up, I’m watching this” and you will gladly submit and enjoy the action in all it’s glory.
Basically if you don’t enjoy this film all I can say to you is, get off my planet you don’t belong here.
