This has been an incredible week at CAK. We achieved two incredible milestones and it's only Wednesday! Let's start with the money. FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt made a special trip to CAK to present our Trustees and team with more than $16.6 million. Let's see, if I write it out the number is…$16,625,000. That's the largest one time grant we've ever received. Randy (he and I are on a first name basis now) was incredibly gracious, greeting everyone at the celebration and truly...

Yesterday was a day to remember! Bob Konstand, Rick McQueen and I spent the day in Washington D.C. visiting elected officials who serve our airport extremely well. Along with dozens of quailty bonding moments, we had a delightful breakfast meeting with our DC counsel, visited four congressmen, one congresswoman, and one senator.

On the airfield side,...

What does it feel like to have more fans than any other airport in the United States? Amazing! When we started the year, CAK had a Facebook group of about 700 people. We thought that was pretty darn good, but Brad Kleinman, director of education at Cleveland based Worksmart Integrated Marketing, convinced us to launch a fan page to replace our group. We weren't familiar with fan pages at the time, but Brad was pretty convincing.

Ho, ho, ho and away we go! It seems like this year and this decade for that matter, have literally flown by. So much has happened at CAK, but the important things remain the same.
Even though we lost our beloved airport director, Fred Krum, we keep his spirit alive by following his advice and being inspired by his past leadership. Fred said that our best days are still ahead of us, and I believe that a truer statement has never been made.
