Newark, Ohio Business Facebook Pages.

I’ve been reluctant to add businesses to the directory that only have Facebook pages. The problem is that I don’t know how long a business will be around or if they maintain the Facebook page well enough to be considered. I don’t want people coming to Newark, Ohio Links, following links to a website, but then when they go to the website, there is nothing of value there for them.

Over time I’ve been watching these businesses on Facebook and many are doing well. Some may not be updating often, but their customers are making comments for them. With this in mind, I’m going to start adding them, but I’ll leave a trace so that they can be found and deleted quickly if they drop their value to that of the average MySpace page.

Newark, Ohio businesses should consider some of these points about Facebook for business. It’s a great tool, but it should be used with consideration that it can do harm. It’s possible to leverage the power of Facebook with a website that is owned to achieve success.

Look for my directory to grow considerably with the addition of Facebook pages.

Granville, Ohio Art Fair

I visited the 2010 Granville Art Fair and had a very good time. There were many artists selling their crafts, food, and music. The event was free.

Artists presented such crafts as copper yard art, cement yard art, turned wood bowls and kitchen utensils, blown glass, photography, paintings, jewelry, and more. I even seen art made from soft water conditioners.

Two artists I found interesting were Earl Duck and Rick Mock. Earl Duck had many paintings from the local area and upstate New York. We talked a short while about the places the drawings were from. Great guy to talk to. Rick Mock was pretty busy when I went buy, but looking at his graphic design work was interesting. I don’t mean to belittle their website efforts, but their websites do not do their work justice. The real deal is much more impressive. I’ve never tried to digitize a canvas painting and place it on a website, but the web representations of the art aren’t even close.

I’m not sure what the rules are for an art show? I don’t know if an artist is happy to have you put a photo of their work on a website or not? I didn’t want to offend any of the artists, so I’ll only post a few photos. Enjoy.

Newark, Ohio Strawberries On The Square Festival

Newark, Ohio‘s Strawberries On The Square Festival is notorious for the one out of many vendors that sells strawberry shortcake and the large crowds of rednecks. I don’t have anything against rednecks, I’ve even been called one a few times, but this is like a yearly Mecca for rednecks. Every stereotype you’ve ever heard is proudly displayed. There are more rebel flags flown here than the entire Confederate Army had.

This year, one more stereotype was added when a high wind storm knocked trailers around. Not a tornado, but close. Here’s some photos of the storm damage and The Strawberry Festival.

Newark, Ohio City Schools Asking For Money For Uniforms

Newark, Ohio has recently decided to adopt a school uniform policy. They failed to enforce a more broad dress code, so they’ve decided to adopt a stricter code. I’m not making this up.

Many parents claim that they lack the funds to buy clothing, so Newark City Schools has put out the word via their blog that they are asking for donations for uniforms. The donations will go to clothe children who receive free breakfast and lunch from government programs. You’re already feeding other people’s children, why not clothe them too?

They have also identified a particular retailer of choice from which the clothing purchased will be made. They are the Robert Renee Uniform Company out of Mount Vernon, Ohio. Apparently there were no local businesses that wanted to sell uniforms.

Look for grand inflated statistics from the Newark City Schools soon! Immediately after the statistics come out, expect a request for another levy. I don’t have a crystal ball, but I don’t think one is required for this prediction.
