Signs of the Times
February 18, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
I noticed some lovely signage when entering and leaving the Warwood section of Wheeling recently. The signs welcome you to Warwood in an eye-catching manor. The same goes in Elm Grove, where I believe the Lions Club, maintains a sign and welcoming flowers in spring and Christmas decorations over the holidays. It seems that some areas, especially Warwood, would just as soon de-annex from the city. Don't get me wrong. These are nice communities within the city, but they give the impression they are their own entities. Perhaps that is the way it all started before Wheeling gobbled them up and spread its boundaries. However, neighborhoods have to be cohesive in their thoughts for a city to work. It gets ugly when council members scratch and claw for their wards without any thought to the greater good of all. The next city council election in Wheeling should be very interesting. If council wants to get over the good old boy hurdles it has had for years, candidates running for the posts need to concentrate on the big picture without ward politics.
