I live very close to Brookside Park, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park--I can walk to all of  these great public amenities, which in my mind, makes my neighborhood an appealing and liveable place. 

I want good things for the Metroparks in 2012--starting with a progressive effort to promote renewable and alternative energy production.  I am not feeling optimistic right now, but I hope that the direction will improve--these recent editorials echo my concerns.  I really appreciate that these residents took time to express their opinion:

We have a right in America to question our political representation and to demand accountability--let's hope that we don't continue to lose our rights in 2012.
