|Loveland High Grad Makes NCAA All Academic (All-American)
Caleb Weston, a 2011 graduate of Loveland High School, was awarded the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) academic team for
maintaining a 3.85 grade point average over the past three years while playing college football. Only 14 players nationwide were selected.
A Junior at Ave Maria University in Florida, Weston is majoring in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. Ave Maria University, a rigorous Liberal Arts
school, requires freshmen to learn Latin and other requirements of a classical education. Weston not only excels in these topics but is at the top of his
class in physics, chemistry and mathematics.
Earlier this year Weston was awarded the school's Football Leadership Award for tutoring his fellow football players in various subjects. Known for its
rigorous curriculum, more than 60% freshman dropout of Ave Maria and even a larger percentage of football recruits. Weston has insisted on wearing the
number 60 on his jersey during the past three years at Ave Maria, which is the number assigned to him at Loveland High School where he played football
for four years. Click here for more information on Ave Maria University Football.

|City Contemplates Eminent Domain
for New Downtown "Catalyst"
Contrary to what city staff told the Loveland Reporter-Herald recently, the city's friendly acquisition of land downtown for their latest proposed
"catalyst" Urban Renewal project is in jeopardy due to poor relations with one property owner.
Russ Morgan is fighting the city with regards to an alleged illegal grading permit issued at 204 12th Street SE causing trouble for his tenants next
door. While the city claims immunity for illegal or unethical acts by its planning department, Morgan's reluctance to discuss selling another property
he owns located in the project area downtown has initiated inquiries by Loveland Planner Mike Scholl with city councilors to use eminent domain to
acquire Morgan's private property so the city can later transfer it to the New Jersey developer currently in negotiations with the city.

"I wish I could keep them honest....I can only point out when they aren't and appeal to their
conscience. I can accept losing to people who disagree with me but it is hard to take when
somebody sells their vote and won't even listen."
Angry over DelGrosso's efforts to suffocate a nascent bipartisan reform bill for Urban Renewal Authorities,
Johnson sent a pleading email to DelGrosso.
