Rest in Peace - Guy Templeton Black

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 07/06/2017 - 01:35.

 Long-time contributor to REALNEO Guy Templeton Black has died.  His dog Sofia is available for adoption at the Animal Protective League.  I will post more information as it becomes available.  Guy was a challenging person, who defended the rights of the marginalized and forgotten.  He will be missed.

Where are they now??? Housing Crisis Crooks?

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 06/29/2017 - 08:40.

 Where are they now?? Jim Rokakis leads some bullsh#t fake green land trust for the 1%, Gus Frangos heads up Cuyahoga County Land Bank (and most likely collects PERS) -the new preferred way of transferring wealth (after the tax lien sale scam and Board of Revision gig dried up) to CDCs like Detroit Shoreway, and Tony Brancatelli - Mr.

Gross incompetence or Corruption??

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 06/15/2017 - 07:09.

 Unbelievably, the media gives Armond Budish a complete pass.  Is Budish a complete simpleton surrounded by morons?  I think so - I am reprinting article from this past week and last year in entirety to show you how Clevelanddotcom is complicit in allowing this insanity to continue.  WE have no tax base to support services in Cuyahoga County.  This is insanity.

Requiem for the Living - Lenten Season Spring 2017

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 03/20/2017 - 13:55.

Lent is a shortened form of the Old English word len(c)ten, meaning "spring season." Lent 2017 is observed from March 1 [Ash Wednesday] through April 15 [Holy Saturday], with Easter celebrated, Sunday, April 16. In Christian denominations, it is a time of repentance, culminating in a joyful celebration on Easter Sunday commemorating the Resurrection of Christ. Many congregations celebrate the Lenten season with chorale presentations.

Eric Brewer for Mayor of Cleveland Ohio

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 02/18/2017 - 09:30.

Cleveland mayoral contender Eric Jonathan Brewer says he'll file criminal “dereliction” charges against Jackson if he doesn't reopen Public Square “There is no ambiguity whatsoever in Chapter 11, Section 71 of Cleveland's charter under the heading of "Executive" as it pertains to the duties of the mayor. It's the same under Ohio's general laws. The mayor shall enforce the duly-enacted resolutions and ordinances of the council.

Metroparks has Good $ense to kill Canalways Stage One - but still the last leg of Towpath is ridiculously $$ expensive

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 02/11/2017 - 09:08.

 I attended an update meeting for the Towpath Trail held at the Cleveland Metroparks on February 7th, 2017 at the Ohio and Erie Canalway Center. The meeting was a bit of an upset as new trail completion stages for the "Towpath Trail" extension to downtown were released.

Consent Decree

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 01/14/2017 - 08:39.

 Eric J Brewer: Forest Gump is smarter than Mayor Frank Jackson. I'm amazed at how after nearly 12 years in office Jackson doesn't understand that he's been “suckered” by Chief of Police Calvin Williams, Safety Director Michael McGrath and Executive Assistant Martin Flask. As mayor I'd fire all three my first day on the job. I'd hope they had sense enough to resign.

How to Lick a Cat

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 11/12/2016 - 08:53.

I lost my mechanic - he died suddenly this past month.  Selfishly, I am very sad for myself.  I don't know how to fix a car - I need to learn- or give up my car.  My mechanic couldn't find anyone to work in his shop.  The last time I saw him - he was trying to train a young man from Ohio Technical College.

Timeline of Rokakis, Cummins, Brancatelli deceit on near west side.

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 11/06/2016 - 09:25.

 Both Brian Cummins and Tony Brancatelli came to us as council representatives from the "Community Development" CDC world.   Cummins worked for Old Brooklyn Development Corporation and Brancatelli for Slavic Village Development Corporation.  Brancatelli was groomed to fill Ed Rybka's position - Cummins was not.  Emily Lipovan was groomed to fill the Rokakis council seat after he appointed Merle Gordon.
