Signs of Life

October 12, 2010 - Robert "Bubba" Kapral

Bellaire is alive and well. The city (village) park was a beehive of activity this past weekend. It was refreshing to see hundreds of people matriculating through the scenic venue in the heart of the business district. Most days the streets are void of people and activity. Such was not the case as huge crowds were treated to postcard-perfect weather and countless events and activities both Saturday and Sunday. Octoberfest -- Bellaire's third annual installment -- unfolded Saturday. The daylong extravaganza proved entertaining to young and old alike. Sunday saw a huge throng roll out for a Codey St. John benefit. Codey is an 11-yeard-old Bellaire boy battling cancer. He is in New York City undergoing another round of treatment. A myriad of booths and food stands were accentuated by a massive car show. All that took a backseat, however, to the spirit of goodwill and compassion being poured out in Codey's behalf. It reinforces my belief that Ohio Valley people will come out and support a great cause. It was also nice realizing that Bellaire is not on life support.
