Of course, many of the performers, artists and entrepreneurs we feature each week in CoolCleveland are talented. But step back and look at the bigger picture. Together we are creating an environment with delicious, accessible amenities that attract talented people. Our region is now a talent magnet.

CoolCleveland columnist Alex Sukhoy offers her 10 ways to recruit & retain talent for your business; the Barking Spider is reopening as the first Dave’s Cosmic Subs to also be a music venue; the Cinematheque celebrates 32 years; and Clevelanders Archie and the Bunkers, along with The Boys From the County Hell, open up a day of high fidelity at the Rock Hall’s Klipsch Fest.

Talent comes in many forms. The film Good Luck Soup at the Maltz tells the story of NE Ohio-raised filmmaker Matthew Hashiguchi’s grandmother Eva and her years in an internment camp during WWII. Walkabout Tremont goes Hawaiian for “Let’s Luau.” And Akron celebrates Akron at the Signal Tree Festival at Lock 3. Check out the back-to-school Flea at Tyler Village, the Ice Cream Social in Kent, the Brewfest in Chardon, Affair on the Square in Medina, and a panel on community arts with local artists and Yo-Yo Ma after his gig at Blossom.

Are you registered to vote? You must be registered 30 days before the Tue 11/6 general election in order to vote, so that gives you less than two months to get yourself registered. You can register online here. We’ll be reminding you occasionally here on CoolCleveland (i.e. every week). Mansfield is even calling this “the most important election EVER!” Don’t let our talents go to waste. –Thomas Mulready
