Some people wear their heart on their sleeve. The Goebel family, who operate Barons Bus Lines, display their faith on their buses. Every Barons bus has a large red cross painted on the back and the words “God Bless.”

The Goebels operate the bus line and other enterprises, including a youth hockey organization and volleyball facility, from a spacious building on Hauserman Road in Parma.

The Goebels support a number of ministries, including the St. Augustine Hunger Center.
