Located just 30 miles east of Cleveland, between the city of Mentor and Painesville Township, the Village of Grand River is steeped in history and charm. It's the hometown of Don Shula, the legendary professional football coach who led the Miami Dolphins to two Super Bowl victories, including an unforgettable undefeated season in 1972.
A bill naming the Grand River post office after an area Marine who was killed in action has been signed into law. The U.S. Post Office at 340 Westmore Ave. was named after Lance Corporal Andrew Nowacki of Painesville Township, who was killed Feb. 26, 2005 while serving as a gunner on a Humvee that was protecting a truck convoy south of Baghdad. He was 24 years old.
