Each day the program explores different safety topics.

LEDs are shining bright in Spencer

Spencer residents traveling the streets of the Medina County village have probably noticed a new look. 
Starting in mid-June, Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative (LMRE) has been gradually replacing the village’s 75 older lights with higher-efficiency LEDs (light- emitting diodes). The new lighting should provide the residents of Spencer with better lighting and increase their nighttime safety, while using less electricity.

LMRE employee chronicles effort to bring electricity to villages for first time

Community-supported agriculture takes root

Where does your fresh produce come from? How was it raised? By whom? And is it really “fresh”? Community-supported agriculture (CSA) addresses all these concerns. 
Food produced at a local CSA farm is grown by farmers who live locally. They are able to show their members where and how the food is raised. The food produced locally does not have to travel hundreds of miles or sit in warehouses. Lettuce Heads Aquaponics and Farm of Brighton Township fills this role.
