Jerusalem Township - Trustees plan to develop John T. Kennedy Park

Jerusalem Township trustees are seeking volunteers to help develop the John T. Kennedy Park, dedicated 12 years ago in memory of a firefighter who died in the line of duty.

The park, located just east of Town Hall on the north side of Jerusalem Road, was once a 60 acre farm. Thirty acres are now parkland, and the remaining property is used for the township’s salt shed and recycling station.

“It’s in its infancy stage,” said Trustee Joe Kiss. “Right now, there are cut paths for walking and wildlife habitat. It’s a poorly tiled field, with whatever water is left there after it rains. We haven’t farmed it in many years.”

Janis Kennedy would have been married to her husband, John Thomas Kennedy, 68 years this year had he not perished in a fire in 1976.

Mr. Kennedy, who was a Jerusalem Township firefighter, died fighting a blaze off State Route 2 on October 17 that year.

With the passage of time, certain events fade from memory.

For Mrs. Kennedy, that ill-fated day is forever etched in her mind.

FirstEnergy cost plan challenged
The Ohio Consumers’ Counsel is challenging a request by FirstEnergy to pass costs onto consumers stemming from a change in regional transmission organizations.

The OCC filed its protest last week with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, arguing the utility has not provided sufficient evidence to show customers will benefit from the utility's decision to change regional transmission organizations. The FERC should instead require FirstEnergy's shareholders to pay the costs resulting from the utility's switch from the Midwest ISO to the PJM Interconnection, Consumers’ Counsel Janine Migden-Ostrander said.
