It was the August 1980 issue of Cleveland Magazine with Liz Richards on the cover that attracted my attention at the Painesville Morley Library. I really wanted to send a letter to the Personals section, when I should have been writing a research paper for a graduate class at Cleveland State. However, to say everything I wanted to say about myself, it would have cost $75 — way too much for a newly divorced schoolteacher. Instead, I decided to write to the guy who described himself as a “bearded, hard-working male” because it would be cheaper. It turned out the ad was written by one of your writers at the time, Greg Stricharchuk, now a business editor at the Chicago Tribune. He was also a fraternity brother with a guy named Ray Zagorc, whom I ended up dating. Second and third dates occurred. We were married July 16, 1983, and recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. I want to thankCleveland Magazine for being the catalyst that got this relationship going. Thanks so much.
I enjoyed reading the June issue, especially the Rocky River supplement. However, the photo on page 4 of the supplement incorrectly lists the park as Bradstreet’s Landing. It is really Rocky River Park. As a resident, we enjoy the numerous parks in our wonderful city.
It Looks Wrong, But It Isn’t
Editor’s Note: The space bars on our computers are not on the fritz. As you’re paging through the magazine this month, you’ll see the place and organization we formerly called Playhouse Square now goes by the name PlayhouseSquare. No space.
• In our August A La Carte review of SASA, the caption incorrectly described the dish in the photo as the fire roll. The dish pictured was the daikon wrap.
• In our June Rating the Suburbs issue, the walkability percentage for Richfield Village listed on page 204 should have been 1.9 percent. The correct walkability figure for Richfield Village appeared on the Rating the Suburbs Vital Stats fold-out and was used while tabulating the 2008 rankings, so the community’s No. 2 finish still stands.
