Ray Kearns Restaurant Razed

Today was the last day for the World Famous Ray Kearns Restaurant. It was built in 1959 at 307 E. Highland Road in Macedonia. You may know it as the Pacific Buffet. The building was considered an innovative engineering marvel of construction of its time due to the fact that the Dome had no center supports. Ray Kearns was an upscale restaurant that was expensive then. Most of us Nordonians will remember it as the Mark V. It was still an upscale restaurant but was not out of reach for the local clientele. Many of us took our dates there when we wanted to impress. There was a Band playing on most weekend nights. It was a very nice place that holds many fond Memories for us. Later it was many different types of restaurant and the building was never taken care of properly leading to it’s demise. Many rumors have surrounded the various operations that were in the building which did not help either. It is sad to see it go as we will always remember the Fun Times that we had there. Mother Nature did not create a sunroof as speculated. The Macedonia Fire Department (all units) used the building for practice. They practiced many types of Fire Rescue as well as entry. We are proud that our Fire Chief Tim Black not only was on hand to instruct but is a very Hands on Leader. It is nice to see our young Fire Fighters learning in a good setting from Great Leaders.

Harwood Motors Special Event 1-29-17

We stopped by to attend a special event today at Harwood Motors. We were invited by Matt and Melanie Harwood. Matt and Melanie along with Michael Johnson are always very hard at work preparing Classic cars for sale. We were able to view many Beautiful cars as you can see in the photos below. We also participated in an oil demonstration that explained many aspects of oil and proper oil usage for Classic cars presented by Ken Tyger of D-A Lubricant Company.

Matt and Melanie officially incorporated Harwood Motors in 2014 as a way to put their passion for the hardware and the hobby to work, offering enthusiasts an effortless way to buy and sell collector vehicles. It’s important to note that while the name “Harwood Motors” is new, the people behind it have years of experience buying, selling, and collecting vintage automobiles. It’s also a family business with close ties to the hobby itself (Matt and Melanie are on the management boards of several car clubs) and they like to think of themselves as matchmakers rather than a mere car dealership. There’s a right car for you out there, and they can help you find it, even if you don’t particularly know where to start. What Harwood Motors does isn’t new, but the way we do it will make you a client for life, whether you’re a buyer or a seller. Call us any time to talk cars, trucks, or even just about the hobby in general; you’ll be surprised to find you already have a friend.

Harwood Motors is Located at:

Friendly Note of Clarification.

An open Letter to the Nordonia Hills Community!

We at NordoniaHillsNews.com would like to clarify our position. The Nordonia Hills News idea was pitched to a group of Media people by us in 2011. Nobody in that group was interested in our idea at the time. We then decided to purchase the domain on November 3, 2011. We created our Facebook Page soon after. You can investigate our ownership of the domain through the ICANN WHOIS website registration. We are not pretending to be anything but who we are. We wish everyone well with their hopes and dreams to be a positive influence within the Nordonia Hills community as we work hard to fulfill our Dreams. Thank You for your interest and time.

Summer Road Closed 1-23-2017

Update: As of January 24th at 10:30 am Summer Road is now open.

Update: As of January 24th at8 am the road is still closed. It appears that they are getting ready to fix things now.

Until further notice Summer road is closed from the Walgreen’s drive to the corner of Summer and Melody lane due to low hanging wires. An old telephone pole was leaning just enough to allow the wires to hang into the street. The wires were hooked by a truck and pulled down further. The truck driver was aware of the situation and stopped immediately to minimize further damage. The electric lines were nearly pulled off of a nearby house. Please avoid the area.
