Twinsburg — Gleneagles Golf Club was named 14th most challenging golf course by Small Business News, and eighth best course for business golf by Inside Business. Recent online reviews by golfers at GolfAdvisor.com call the course, “scenic and beautiful,” and “challenging but fair.” It’s one of the amenities that helped Twinsburg land on several “Best Place to Live” lists over the past years. And it’s just getting better. The 18-hole city-owned course has 11 water hazards and more than 20 bunkers.

Bryan Mineard, PGA golf pro at Gleneagles, said 2016 will bring the completion of more than $2 million in renovations, which includes a $1 million, 350-yard driving range that opened in 2015. The range has room for 18 to 25 golfers hitting buckets of balls at the same time. The new practice area includes a 6,500-square-foot putting green. “It’s important to get as close to a regular green as possible, so you know what you’re doing when you get out to play,” Mineard said. “We’re making it more real for golfers to practice the game.” This redesign comes on the heels of a $1.2 million irrigation system installed in 2013 and 2014 at the course, as well as $460,000 in redesigned cart paths between

holes 10 and 18 that adds safety to the course. Renovations also included reconstruction and leveling of eight tee boxes, with four tee boxes on No. 1 and four tee boxes on No. 2; design a new green on No. 8; and redesign a more forgiving approach shot into No. 9 green. Previously, a golfer couldn’t miss either right or short into No. 9 green, Mineard explained, as right put the player in a bunker and short meant the ball was likely headed for the drink. Now, with a softer grade to the hill guarding the green and the addition of bunkers, a player can “bail out” short of the green and not end up in the water. Fairways have been widened, increasing the amount of playability and pace of play, Mineard said. “Our entire goal with this project was to make the golf course more playable for the average golfer,” Mineard said. Golfers are still working around upgrades to the back nine, which should be complete in late August. Mayor Ted Yates said he is pleased with the facelift, and more improvements could be on the horizon with a new club house and banquet center. “I think in the last two years of improvements, we’ve set ourselves apart from other golf courses,” he said. “What we are lacking is … a new club house with a banquet center that not only serves the course itself but serves the community of Twinsburg.” The cozy snack bar and pro-shop is in a 20-year-old building that was supposed to be a temporary structure. Early plans called for a $4.3 million, 19,000-square-

foot clubhouse, banquet facility and patio area that city officials hope will make the course a year-round money maker. The plans are on hold. Mineard is looking forward to completion of the renovations, and so are the golfers. “People want change but they don’t want to go through the process,” Mineard said. “I think they’re going to be really happy.” Brothers Tony Borgia and Butch Borgia have been playing the course for 15 years. “The course changes are very nice, especially the irrigation,” Butch said in June. “The practice range rivals any I’ve ever seen. It rivals any of those out there.” “The cart paths are routed better, and I like the changes to the holes,” Tony said. “I’ll like it when it is finally completed.” “When you play this course, you get a little better at golf,” Butch said. There’s a reason for that, Mineard said. “It’s a shot-maker’s course, which makes it challenging,” Mineard said. “A long hitter has no advantage.” And the Borgia brothers have friends and relatives that visit the area and play golf at Gleneagles. “They all like this course,” Butch said. “The type of grass and the condition of the greens is top notch,” Tony said. Gleneagles hosts golf leagues on weekdays, which means non-stop cart traffic between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. It is also the dest ination for several golf outings a year, including the annual Officer Joshua Miktarian Golf Outing sponsored by the Twinsburg Police Association and the Twinsburg Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing.

There are story times for lap sitters, toddlers and families. In the Children’s Room, there are resources to help children prepare for preschool, Leonard said. There is a glass enclosed toy room, where parents can keep an eye on their little ones while using computers on a bar shelf set up against one of the toy room walls. A writing center lets kids practice using scissors, coloring and writing and there is a learning stations with child-friendly computers. Teens and tweens can join after school book clubs or video game clubs in Teen Crossings, a special space just for them. The library also has a teen advisory board that meets with library staff to brainstorm ideas for new programs. For adults or teens looking for jobs, the technology librarians can help navigate job searches. The library is also an official testing site for TalentNEO, matching job seekers with employers using skills-based WorkKeys testing. This is the sixth year for the free Music In The Garden series in the Reading Garden in front of the library. There are two concerts left in the series this year. On July 31, jazz quartet Hip to That Jazz Band will perform. Good Knights, an oldies group, will entertain Aug. 14. Join the Summer Sewing Club, Cookbook Club, a book club, or start a club and meet at the library. Need a quiet place to read, think, or just be?

Natural light flowing through a wall of windows overlooking the Reading Garden highlights an inviting reading area in the library’s main room, with comfortable high-back chairs, side tables and lamps. Don’t worry about falling asleep while reading in one of the two recliners perched in front of a nonworking fireplace near the study rooms. Leonard said the space was created to feel like home, so an occasional nap is expected. A $300,000 update in 2015 provided the decor for both reading spots, as well as updated carpet, recovered chairs, and four sound-muffling glass-enclosed study rooms. The library has always been on the cutting age of technology. Computers were first offered for public use in 1997, and computer classes were offered shortly after. Free Wi-Fi has been offered since 2005. The most recent update project also included updating computers and building the Creative Lab, where budding musicians or film makers can edit recordings or videos, or create a podcast. The computers and study rooms are free and open to members and nonmembers. Only library members can use the Creative Lab. The study rooms can be reserved for oneor two-hour blocks. Members can reserve the Creative Lab for a total of eight hours per week “LIBRARY” CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Twinsburg — The national spotlight was set to return to Quicken Loans Arena July 18 through 21, as the hardwood court and banners for the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers will be replaced with stage and bunting for the 2016 Republican National Convention. And returning to the area as part of the Committee on Arrangements for the RNC will be Samantha Osborne, a 2005 Twinsburg High School graduate who grew up on Shadywood Lane. Osborne, the first female director of digital operations in RNC history, is charged with collecting and creating digital content for the event — a huge task considering the myriad avenues available to circulate digital content and the thousands of news outlets looking to Tweet,

Facebook and Instagram news coming out of the RNC. “It’s very exciting to be part of this,” Osborne said as she was preparing for the RNC in May. “It’s been a great experience so far and I’m looking forward to things coming together for the week of the convention.” The RNC — the third time, after 1924 and 1936, that it has been in Cleveland — is expected to bring more than 50,000 visitors who will spend an estimated $200 million in Northeast Ohio hotels, restaurants and other retail and commercial locations. Twinsburg and surrounding communities will share in that tourism spike, as the Hilton Garden Inn of Cleveland/Twinsburg (142 rooms) and Comfort Suites (70 rooms), adjacent to the Kent State University Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, are sold out for the four-day event. In fact, the 23 Republican delegates from Maine — 12 for Sen. Ted Cruz, nine

for Donald Trump and two for Ohio Gov. John Kasich — and their families are planning to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn on Wilcox Drive. “We’ll all be fired up taking care of these folks visiting our city and put our best foot forward to make it a great experience,” Hilton general manager Roger Greene said. Other Twinsburg businesses will also cash in on the RNC. Blue Canyon Kitchen and Tavern has been granted an extended liquor license that allows drinks to be served until 4 a.m. And local establishments Panini’s, Mavis Winkle’s, Rav’s Creekside Tap and Grill, Brewster’s Cafe, Bistro and Pub and Sassy’s Bar and Grille will no doubt see bumps in business, thanks to visitors from across the globe descending on the Greater Cleveland area. In addition to the thousands of delegates, 15,000 credentialed media, both national and international, are expected at the RNC. For Osborne, who now calls Washington, D.C., home, the RNC represents a return to her roots.

“I always assumed I’d never have the opportunity to live or work in Cleveland again so I am very grateful for this opportunity,” she said. “I didn’t think about trying to work on the convention this cycle until it was announced that it was going to be in Cleveland … Home. Once I heard that I knew I needed to be part of it.” Osborne, who graduated in 2009 from The Ohio State University with degrees in history and political science, says she hopes to make the convention “open and transparent.” “Because of digital media there are more opportunities available to deliver the convention’s message to voters,” she said. “And this is the first time that a digital strategy has been incorporated into every aspect of a convention ... it will be the most accessible to date.” The former Twinsburg Tiger, named a “2016 Rising Star” by the publication Campaigns & Elections, said she became interested in politics in 2008 when she worked for the RNC during its Victory Campaign as regional ab“RNC” CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

She later worked for the 2012 Mitt Romney campaign, and more recently in private public relations fields, before returning to the national stage with this year’s convention. “Having grown up here it’s rewarding to work on a cause that’s bigger than myself,” she said. “This convention is personal. Cleveland is on the rise and it’s awesome that the convention is part of that.” “My husband [Dick] and I are very proud of our daughter,” added Debbie Osborne from her home on Shadywood Lane. “She has accomplished so much in such a little amount of time.

Twinsburg — With more than 40 percent of all city businesses calling themselves members of the Twinsburg Chamber of Commerce, the group has experienced a renaissance in both membership and stature over the past four years. Founded in 1921, the Chamber now boasts 260 members (78 from outside Twinsburg), up from about 125 in 2012 when executive director Abby Fechter took over the group. There are more than 450 businesses in the city today, according to city officials. “Overwhelming is an understatement when I took over,” Fechter said. “I thought, ‘Oh my God, we’ll never pull this off.’” The group, whose charge is to “promote the interests of its members, strengthen the local economy and advance educational, tourism and community development programs that contribute to making the Greater Twinsburg area a better place to work, visit and live,” faced declining membership and credibility in the business community, according to Chamber officials. Gary Sorace, Chamber president from 2013-15, a City Council member and a Twinsburg small business owner, said things “were just stale.” “When Abby came in 2012, nothing had gelled in a while,” Sorace said. “I got the feeling that things were just stale.” “For me personally, one of my biggest challenges was that I was 25, a female and fresh out of college,” Fechter said. “I think people thought, ‘what does she know?’ “One of my biggest goals was to go out and prove people wrong.” Fechter, a Twinsburg native, says her familiarity with the community of nearly 19,000, understanding its needs and tendencies, proved invaluable in resurrecting this key liaison for the business community. “Looking back at my first interview in the Twinsburg Bulletin, I said I wanted to get to the point where businesses want to come to us,” she said. “When we reached that point I knew it was a good sign of things to come.” Just as the city began to change its tack in light of the 2009 closure of the Chrysler Stamping Plant that resulted in

18

the burgeoning Cornerstone Business Park, the Chamber began to alter its focus for the better. Under the leadership of past presidents Tim Edgington, Peter DeSouza and Sorace, as well as the all-volunteer Board of Directors, the group began a strong outreach program with the onus on bringing former members back into the fold and touting the value of Chamber membership. “We had to find out what people wanted and what they needed, then offer that to them,” Sorace said. “There wasn’t a big jump [in membership] ... this was a step-by-step process. “Members appreciate a ‘thank you’ and some communication … and that is contagious. This was key to changing the reputation of the Chamber.” The Twinsburg Chamber of Commerce maintains a busy schedule throughout the year, with events of all sizes — from Twinsburg Women In Networking events; to sponsorship of the State of the City and State of the Schools addresses; to the annual golf outing and clam bake fundraisers; to assisting with Taste of Twinsburg; to the member appreciation picnic; to the business exposition and Business Person of the Year Award; and finally to the myriad smaller after-hours and networking events across Northeast Ohio, such as the First Friday Networking on the Go gatherings. With a diverse membership base of businesses both large and small, the Chamber needs to remain nimble in its offerings, says current President Allison Chance. “You can’t treat every member the same … this was key for us to recognize for the future, for the sustainability of our group,” Chance said. “The needs of the Cleveland Clinic are far different than the needs of the Greenbridge Teahouse and Cafe,” Fechter added. As owner of the Twinsburg-based Ohio Classic Awards, Sorace says he feels appreciated through the many avenues the Chamber offers for new contacts. “Even if it doesn’t generate business, it’s still community involvement,” he said. And it’s been the partnerships established — and rekindled — with the city of Twinsburg, Reminderville and Twinsburg Township, Twinsburg City School District, the Rotary

Club of Twinsburg, the Twinsburg Public Library and other area Chambers that have buoyed the Twinsburg Chamber in its audacious schedule. “I think our current relationship with the Chamber is as strong as it’s ever been ... and I think the Chamber is as strong as it’s ever been,” said Mayor Ted Yates. “It’s nice for me to know that we have that database for the community. This really assists us in having planned contacts with our business. Everything ... that the Chamber does is a reflection of the city, and we try to do things that positively impact the Chamber.” “We serve the business community, but we’re involved in the whole community,” Fechter said. “If you don’t have those relationships you don’t have a Chamber.” Fechter says that many of the Chamber’s signature events have evolved from a philosophy of “quality over quantity.” Rather than hosting smaller monthly luncheons, the Twinsburg Chamber often combines both business and civic in more formal, larger events — such as the State of the City Address and the State of the Schools Address at the Hilton Garden Inn of Cleveland/Twinsburg. The group offers one major summer luncheon as a member appreciation picnic, also at the Hilton. As the Chamber, city and surrounding communities prepare for the Bicentennial celebration in 2017, Chance says the ability to listen to members and collaborate with other groups has put the Twinsburg Chamber back on the map. “It’s a hometown Chamber without being home-bound,” Chance said. “People just appreciate others being nice, I think,” Fechter adds. “Everyone is moving so fast these days … it’s that human touch and just taking time to talk.”
