Clarinda council backs Glenn Miller Festival street closures

(Clarinda) -- Clarinda city officials have approved street closures for the upcoming 45th annual Glenn Miller Music Festival. During its regular meeting Wednesday, the Clarinda City Council heard from Marvin Negley, who requested a pair of street closures for the festival running June 9-12 on the west and south side of the square starting at 5 p.m. on June 9 and Clark Street from 16th to 17th Street on June 12.

Rock and roll was not played in the Detweiler household.  My father graduated high school in Tallmadge, Ohio, in 1952, towards the end of the big band era. He was in Germany in the U.S. Army from 1956 to 1958, so he pretty much missed Elvis-mania. My mother graduated high school in Mantua, Ohio, in...

Clarinda Council scraps plan to make Glenn Miller Avenue three-lane road

(Clarinda) — Clarinda city officials have elected to keep the lane configuration on Glenn Miller Avenue status quo, instead of changing to a three-lane pattern. Meeting in regular session Wednesday, the Clarinda City Council voted unanimously to keep the traffic pattern on Glenn Miller Avenue the same. Last month, the council heard a presentation from Snyder & Associates Project Engineer Dave Sturm. Sturm told the council that the street is being resurfaced this summer and that changing the configuration would make sense at the same time as the resurfacing. The council delayed a decision at its last meeting, following concerns raised by Pastor Mitch Grossoehme of the First Baptist Church, which would lose its handicapped parking under the proposed changes. Mayor Craig Hill says several members of the church reached out to express concerns with the three-lane configuration.
