The obscene conniving in [wealthy] Hunting Valley to get residents out of paying public school taxes

CLEVELAND -- There are few wealthier towns in the country than Hunting Valley, a lovely little place with meandering streams, dense forests, winding roads and gorgeous homes, snuggling along and across Cuyahoga Countyís eastern border.

With a mean household income of $507,214 and average home value of about $1.3 million, the Higley 1000, using 2010 Census data, ranked Hunting Valley Ohioís most affluent place and the nationís 17th richest community.

But money canít always buy the rich what they want from their government.

What a small minority of the 700 or so who live in Hunting Valley want is special treatment so recklessly selfish it would devastate the Orange public school system.

Worse yet, it might just ignite a backlash in the 615 school districts throughout Ohio, perhaps harming 1.7 million public school children in the process.

All in the name of allowing property owners in Hunting Valley Ė and only Hunting Valley Ė to avoid paying their fair share, a share every person who lives there can easily afford.

2. Yeah, I've been through there, too.

Poor babies have to pay for public schools..... what a load of crap. What a bunch of entitled assholes.

And their school district is highly rated, too.

3. I remember years ago I gave a ride to a girl from Columbus (OSU) back to her home in the ...

... Orange Township/Pepper Pike area and her mother asked me what I did ... worked in a big
garden center/nursery just finished O.U.) and she smiled and was nice then she asked me where
I was going and i said to visit a friend from school and she I asked me where he lived. I told
her he lived on W. 42nd Street in Cleveland. Her smile froze and she said, "Oh thats nice."

4. LOL I can just imagine.

My dad grew up on the near west side of Cleveland. I can imagine what that mother thought of her daughter associating with someone who had friends in that area.

I'm glad their little scheme was abolished, but I think the state GOP had no choice -- if they allowed this for Hunting Valley, what's to stop every other wealthy enclave from wanting a school tax abatement, too? At least this time Ohio did the right thing.
