Richard “Dick” Goddard (1931-2020), Cleveland weather man for over 50 years, passed away this morning. The last time Dick and I spoke was about the updates that I made to his weather guides (https://haslagenet.wordpress.com/features/goddard/) posted on our website. He approved the changes and we have hosted the updated material ever since.
I first met Dick when I was a kid at the local library. He was distributing his weather guides and teaching severe weather safety. I later wrote to him and eventually transitioned to email about distributing the weather guides locally. I also occasionally met Dick at Woollybear when my Boy Scout troop attended.
Thank you Dick Goddard and rest in peace.

After years of independent website hosting, we have moved to WordPress. It is simply a matter of cost. HNE as an entity is entirely not profitable. No one has made any money from HNE in years. In fact, the act of paying for web hosting and the renewal of a web domain each year costs more than HNE earns. This move is meant to reduce the annual costs to simple domain renewal.
With this change also comes the end of Games – Ohio. Since 2002, Games – Ohio has provided tabletop gaming opportunities to north-central Ohio. But, as with HNE, GO eventually turned out to cost too much. Games – Ohio has already begun the process of turning over parts of itself to other game organizers in the area and will effectively end by October 2018.
That being said, HNE as a website will become strictly a blog to store information pertinent to its owners hobbies. Nothing more or less.
Thank you for your years of patronage!

Welcome to the new Haslage Net Enterprises. While the pages are up and going, some external work is being completed as well as updates to our forums, shop and side menus as we import content from the previous website and attempt to match the overall flow of other sites in the HNE Network. Until all of the websites are completed, account creation will be suspended. An announcement will be made once we are ready for the public.
Please be patient with us while we move through this transition. Thanks.
