I am glad everyone is safe!! If something like this happened on the West Side of town, Lord only knows that outcome.

Shelby St. is on the WEST side of the city.

I think what margaritaville means in the Venice Road area where we have a closed fire station thanks to our city fathers.

Thank you Curley. What some people don't understand is the 'West Side' is considered the old Venice area which was annexed years ago. There are thousands of residents from the 101 and Venice Rd intersection heading West and Southwest....

Yea they are west and not east like cedar point.Thats all sandusky cares about.. you dont see them closing the fire station on fifth street or the main station on market street . You all know . The new fire station on Market street . Just look at what it cost to build and then see what it would have help if that money was. better spent
