Our Patch bloggers wrote posts based on current events this week. See what topics they touched on in this roundup.
There were lots of hot topics in the news this week, and three of our bloggers chose to tackle them with their own opinions of the situations. Here's what they had to say about these current events: 1. Blogger Laura Madsen explains how a trip to McDonald's forever changed the lives of several people.

The city's current system is more than 20 years old
One could have given birth to a child and celebrated his or her high school and college graduations in the time that has passed since the City of Mayfield Heights bought a phone system. "What people don't realize is that the phone system we have is quite antiquated," Councilwoman Gayle Teresi said. "It's difficult to get parts and the other issue is that the wiring is in the basement of the old city hall, so that just adds to all of the problems we have with the phone system and the connectivity with the police and fire departments." That will all change now that the city has approved the purchase of a new VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) phone system. The city has accepted a request for proposal from Rocky River-based OCI Inc. for $43,…

Here's the story of Marlene Konkoly, who found creative ways to spend less and save more so she can retire at 50. This story is the first in our series about Extreme Savers.
Americans may be living longer, but our retirement plans aren’t keeping up. Which means people are living longer with smaller bank accounts. But Marlene Konkoly will retire at age 50. How did she do it? She contributes a whopping 45 percent of the gross annual income she earns as a procurement officer for an automotive finance company to her retirement—while owning a home and remaining debt-free. Konkoly is actually well ahead of the retirement savings curve compared to many of her fellow Americans. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, fewer than half of Americans even know how much money they would need to retire. And nearly a third of employees who had access to a defined contribution plan such as a 401(k) did not participate in it…
