BILLIONS IN PUBLIC INVESTMENT, NO PAYOFF

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 02/20/2009 - 18:03.

So you may think that investing in a medical mart is something Cleveland just has to do. That’s what they said about so many things that I’m not going to list here but you know the money that’s been expended on downtown this and that over the last 20 years in Cleveland. Cleveland wasn’t alone. Other cities did the same. Now here’s a study of the same kind of “investments” made in St. Louis and how much it has helped that city. How many jobs, how much economic activity did it produce? Who actually benefited from the public give-away of our money?

When Denver took a whole lot of sage brush (thousands of acres) and made a airport out of it - it was a from-scratch effort.   Six levels of vehicle accesses on each side of the terminal allow busses, arriving passengers, departing passengers, service and others to use their very own level.

PAST OFTEN HIDDEN FROM US ON PURPOSE

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 02/18/2009 - 14:08.

During the first anti-trust trial between the city of Cleveland and the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Co. (CEI), I walked up to the company’s former chairman Elmer Lindseth. He had been attending the trial as a spectator. I asked the 78-year old retired executive if he ever had expected to see the day that the corporate leaders of CEI would ever be brought into a court of law by the city. He hesitated to answer. I asked him if maybe he didn’t want to respond. He smiled and said, “The times are different and things change.” Things do change.

The Mafia Plot To Kill Dennis Kucinich A Former Cleveland Police Chief Finally Tells The Whole Story - By James Renner - CLARIFICATION - The following story links businessman James Palladino and organized crime figure Danny Greene, who was killed in 1977. An alleged relationship has been reported before, and at least one federal agent has made such claims. But our report failed to point out that Palladino has not been convicted of a crime since 1972, or that investigations into him in the 1990s did not result in prosecutions.

THE INNER VOICE SPEAKS
Scientists have confirmed what we all knew: You do indeed have a little
voice in your head that warns you when you're about to do something
dumb. It's called the anterior cingulate cortex, according to white-coated
authorities at Carnegie-Mellon University. If you're receptive to it, it's as
good as having a guardian angel. "Don't do it," the voice whispers when
you're on the verge of locking your keys in your car or leaving the bar

Last week I attended the World Ag Expo held in Tulare, California.   I make it a point to attend exhibitions which challenge my legacy mind.   Although I grew up on a farm,  much has changed with the advent of Cesar Chavez and digital equipment engineering and GIS farming.

So I thought it would be an eye opener to visit the Ag Expo with my brother to learn more about modern agricultural equipment.

The last time I saw “Citizen” Ed Hauser alive was at the October 8, 2008, Cuyahoga County Commissioners' public hearing on the proposed Medical Mart and Convention Center, aka MedCon.

Ed was as furious as I can ever remember seeing him, as he shouted "the process is broken".

Ed was so right.
