Dennis - the rye grass is ugly and I don't think there is any benefit to Warren for it.

nmcLone: We were always upfront about it.

WarrenProud: You may not like the look of it but it looks better than what it replaced and it will be gone soon; the benefit is explained in the letter.

Mr. Blank, Thank You for all of your efforts and dedication in making Warren better. Ignore people like Warrenproud who have no knowledge about what you are doing, she will be critical of anything that does not fit into her political views.

Warrenproud, do you have any knowledge at all pertaining to rye grasses and the process of making any area into a natural habitat of flowers and the beauty of nature?

Mullets— Considering the circumstances, a solid land reutilization plan will include a variety of uses including yard expansion, native plantings/wildflowers, AND food production. There is a community garden in its second season at Washington and Mercer, in the heart of the proposed Garden District. This is no coincidence. There are also a number of other sites around town. If you would like to get involved in this garden, or any of the other gardens around town please contact TNP so we can put you in touch with the appropriate garden leader. Your assistance in doing outreach to youth around food production would be welcomed! tnpwarren(dot)org

The rye grass is an annual -- one season only.

Anyone asking why there aren't vegetable gardens should consider coming up from their parents' basement for the first time in half a decade. There have been community-based vegetable gardens in Warren, Ohio since 2008.

If people are avoiding Warren, it certainly isn't because of the rye-grass. Seriously. Stop finding fault with the solutions others are trying and be the change you want to see.

Howland Trustees should be ashamed of themselves! They put all that money into the flowers at Rt. 46 and 82 but didn't have the curbs edged and run the street cleaner along the curbs and pick-up all the debris and gravel from winter! It's the details that would make that intersection look great! Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Clark and VanSuch! Get It Done, Now!

MD1533USMC, what the h3ll does anything Howland does have to do with the flower gardens in Warren. Never surprised by the ignorance of some of the comments on here. If you have a problem with what Howland is doing, write a letter to the paper and let Howland know it. Commenting on an article of what is happening in Warren your Howland Trustees could give a sh!t.

MandatoryMullets you really should think before you comment. Annual plants have only one life cycle. Your comment about reseeding is not correct pertaining to the term Annual plant. One seed, one life cycle. Yes an annual plant may produce seeds, but, those seeds will only produce one plant, one life season of growth. A perennial will emerge every growing season from its roots or bulbs. They do not need to be replanted. If you went out in the fall and picked up all off your pumpkins seeds, you would not have any the following year. So therefore, they are an annual plant. seeds produced are not perrenial, they are only natures way of producing.
