Thank you Veterans

...for the crown jewel of Brooklyn Centre. It was his vision long ago that made our gorgeous state of the art park possible. Though others will try to claim credit, including the current "representative", whose ONLY contribution was to try to take out the 75 year old majestic oaks in the middle of the night when no one was looking. Luckily he failed. So here are some photos that do not begin to do it justice. Finally Brooklyn Centre has a reason to be proud. OUR very own restored W.C. Reed Field. Thank you Councilman Cummins.

Southern Poverty Law Center's suggestions on how to respond to hate

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 08/22/2017 - 10:51.

 What ever we do in life it helps the operation run smoothly if we practice.    

Recently the United States has developed - with a green light from POTUS -  a new "tone" - anger, antimosity, bias, venum.    None of these will result in long term positive change. 

So back to practice...

The Southern Poverty Law Center has developed a guide book with suggestions on how to respond to hate which you can view here.

DSCDO is new political machine - building Matt Zone candidacy for higher office

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 08/08/2017 - 21:46.

From Laura McShane:  It is absolutely critical for the machine to support the oligarchy behind Frank Jackson. The next figurehead in that line-up is Matt Zone.  Detroit Shoreway Development Corporation (DSCDO) allows the machine to continue handing off special deals for special friends. Community Development Block Grant funding will dry up under Donald Trump - each council person also allocates Neighborhood Development Allocations to select groups.

Similar Mental illness in the pharmacy line and in the White House?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 10:55.

 

I was running errands earlier this week and I went to a hospital pharmacy to pick up a script for a house bound friend.  There was a long line, I got a phone call, so I sat down on a nearby bench from which I took the photo above.   

In the space of about 45 minutes 5 different people who were in the line demonstrated psychotic, disruptive, mentally disturbed behavior.

CMSD owns condemned property next to Denison School

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 07/25/2017 - 08:51.

 A reminder to everyone that Mayor Frank Jackson administers the City of Cleveland AND Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The District has been playing real estate politics with the properties adjacent to the CMSD Denison building. Brian Cummins has been fully aware of this property for over 9 years - Tony Brancatelli has the gerrymandered Ward 12 across the street.
