'RV," starring Robin Williams, has just rolled into a multiplex near you. The family comedy features Williams as Bob Munro, a workaholic dad who takes his reluctant, slightly dysfunctional family on a road trip from Los Angeles to Colorado in a rented RV.

Wolves and Flax: The Prior Family in the Cuyahoga Valley Wilderness

Wolves and Flax: The Prior Family in the Cuyahoga Valley Wilderness

This vintage postcard from 1913 Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio illustrates the robust tourism industry the city featured, built around the unique and natural wonder of a 2.5 mile stretch of Class III to Class V whitewater set in a canyon 100+ feet deep in places. Notice the small boat full of people that are dwarfed by the walls of the Glens!

Since 1913, an enormous elevated highway has been constructed along the east side of the canyon, essentially walling off the east and west sides of the city and restricting access to the east side of the river. The Great Falls was dammed downstream. The list goes on.

But things are changing for the better again as some citizens and some elected leaders are recognizing the economic benefit of restoring these wonders. The dam is coming down in the coming years! Could Cuyahoga Falls become a sports fishing center or a place where international whitewater competitions take place? It is possible!

Excerpt from "Wolves and Flax:
From Native American villages and hunting grounds to boat-makers in Northampton building the ships that helped defeat the British during the Battle of Lake Erie, to the post-industrial malaise that grips wide swaths of the region, the story of this part of the world needs telling. Maybe accounts like these will help us be more thoughtful and avoid the mistakes of the past done in the name of progress. Mistakes include damning the Great Falls in Cuyahoga Falls, destroying the natural beauty of the cityโ€™s namesake, and the engine for a robust tourism industry back in the day. Or building a massive sewage plant in the Merriman Valley along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in the pristine wilderness on the doorstep of the place native cultures, pioneers, and rookeries of great blue herons called home for centuries.

After decades of being all but dead, polluted, and dangerous, the Cuyahoga River has come back to life. The momentum of the past 46 years, including the creation of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, is something I have to imagine Simeon and Katharine, and all the pioneers of the early 1800s, would respect as industrious and essential as the river was the very thing that sustained them, nourished them, and ultimately allowed them to survive and prosper. That the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is one of the most visited national parks in the United States while simultaneously remaining one of the most obscure to both local and non-local people alike illustrates the work we have before us.

Stroll Down Memory Lane

In 1982, William Clifford bought this Mobil gas station that had gone out of business next to his Clifford-Shoemaker Funeral Home. He planned to tear down the working station for parking, until his accountant suggested using it for a tax break. He started using it to store his vintage cars and then added other automobile related collections. From then on, he turned the old station into a mini-museum, where now visitors are admitted free to admire some of his treasures, including a sleek, black 1940 Oldsmobile โ€” just like the one he learned to drive on. Scouring flea markets from Ohio to Florida, Bill and his wife, Dottie, gathered a lot of service station memorabilia, plus a couple of beautifully restored Schwinn bicycles. His personal collection also includes other automobiles, vintage gas pumps, bicycles, and a wide variety of other memorabilia. Bill Clifford passed away in May of 2006 and Dottie Clifford in October of 2008. His family keeps the museum going in their Memory.
