Photos and story from Pat Kellogg, Reynolds Rd

Everyone thinks Hinkley Ohio is first for spring because Buzzards come to Hinkley on March 15th, but did you know they come to Parkman and the Nelson Ledges state park are first? Every year they arrive on March 4th, some years earlier.

Here's pictures from this years March 4th arrivals.

Thanks Pat for the update - awesome photos!!!

March 10, 2010 - Parkman Cancer Study

Dear Parkman Township Resident:

Over the years, there have been a number of incidents of breast cancer among women living on Forgehill and Stagecoach in Grand River Estates I in Parkman Township, Ohio.  This concern caused two residents, Judi Shemitz and Sandy Denman, to contact the Ohio Department of Health, and request an investigation.  The Ohio Department of Health, working with the Geauga County Health Department, has agreed to evaluate the available information regarding these incidents of breast cancer and determine what further steps, if any, should be taken by the health department as a result of their review.

 The first step in this process is to gather as much information as possible about incidents of cancer in Grand River Estates I and the immediately surrounding area in Parkman Township.  If you, or someone you know, lives or has lived in this area over the past 25 years and has experienced cancer of any type, and you are willing to share this information for evaluation by the Ohio and Geauga County Health Departments, please send a letter providing as much information as possible to:

Parkman Cancer Review
PO Box 566  Parkman, Ohio 44080

The information you send should include name, age, specific type of cancer, diagnosis date, treatment, current cancer health status, where and when you lived in Parkman, where you are living now, and phone number.

 PLEASE NOTE:  Any information you provide will be reviewed and compiled by Judi Shemitz and Sandy Denman.  Your information will be shared with the Ohio Department of Health and the Geauga County Health Department, and may be shared with other agencies in the course of their evaluation.  By volunteering your cancer history information, you are agreeing to have this information shared for any purpose related to this review.
