An Appeal from Columbus with Serious NEO implications

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Mon, 02/09/2009 - 21:54.

Below is a heartfelt appeal to those to reach out with their social networks to demand inclusion of key legislation that would curtail regional and state funded programming and could have many negative consequences as a result.  This particular piece of legislation, still up for debate is the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund.  The importance of this particular element is elucidated here for your perusal

New Grid for Renewable Energy Could Be Costly

Submitted by Charles Frost on Mon, 02/09/2009 - 15:13.

By REBECCA SMITH

A substantial increase in the amount of electricity produced from renewable energy would require building a transmission system that would carry a price tag of up to $100 billion, according to a new study. The new system would be needed because the existing eastern grid couldn't handle the volume of power coming from the wind-producing states.

Innerbelt meeting

Submitted by adm226lit on Mon, 02/09/2009 - 14:23.

At 10 A.M. in the Cleveland council chamber on Wed. Feb. 11 there will be a meeting about the innerbelt bridge/access ramp.  Representatives will be there from ODOT, the City and city council as well as many interested citizens from the Tremont neighborhood. I believe that State Senator Shirley Smith will also be in attendance.  If you would like to be brought up to date on this important issue, please attend.  If you need a ride, at least a couple of cars with available seats will be at TWDC on Professor St. leaving at about 9:30 A.M.

The 200 Day School Year: Reactions From the Teachers' Lounge

Submitted by MaryBeth Matthews on Sat, 02/07/2009 - 10:20.

Last night I listened to Dick Feagler and his Friends on WVIZ discuss Governor Strickland's education plan for the state of Ohio, slated to be piloted in the Cleveland Municipal Schools. When Mr Feagler asked his panel's opinion of the proposed 200 day school year, all of his highly educated guests nodded in agreement. "Of course it is a GREAT idea!" "Some other countries have school years even longer than 200 days." "Another month of school makes sense. We need to prepare Ohio's children to compete in a global economy." "It's about time.

This article was refreshing as it supplies information on applications for Baking Soda that I had not seen before. May provide new info for those in need of treatment. The format is screwy so bear with it but the info seems good.

Praise and Thanks for Lux Interior of the Cramps

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Fri, 02/06/2009 - 21:55.

How many saw the news (or noticed it at all) that “Lux Interior, frontman of "psychobilly" pioneers the Cramps, died yesterday in Glendale, California” and realized it was another example of Ohio creativity let loose on the world?

IS CLEVELAND READY FOR THE MED MART BUSINESS?

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 02/06/2009 - 21:01.

The Healthcare Convention &Exhibitors Association (HCEA) “is the only organization solely dedicated to “improving the effectiveness and quality of all healthcare conventions and congresses, medical meetings and healthcare exhibit marketing throughout the industry.”

Cleveland, of course, is a prime city for health care with the nationally renowned Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals and their medical schools.

One would think that Cleveland would be big NOW in the field of attracting conventions and exhibitions dealing with healthcare meetings and showings.

Innovative Solar Power Feed-In Tariff Program Approved in Gainesville, Fla.
by Matthew McDermott, New York, NY on 02. 6.09

A couple of months back I wrote about how Gainesville, Florida was looking into enacting a solar power feed-in tariff modeled on the type of renewable energy promotion schemes used widely in Europe, but sparingly in the United States. Good news, Gainesville Regional Utilities has announced that the Gainesville City Commission has unanimously approved the plan:

"Another step taken toward Breaking the Cycle of Abandonment"... Forward or Backward?

Chart of Cleveland City Council HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Program Spending

This just in, via Cleveland City Council, via Facebook... "Another step taken toward Breaking the Cycle of Abandonment". This is about how City Council has decided to spend our community's $25 million in Federal taxpayer funds from the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) - the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development - intended to help our impoverished inner city. You must ask yourself, who decided how your $25,000,000 should be spent here, how did they really decide this, and is this a step forward or backwards?

MARKETING THE MEDICAL MART WITH HEADLINES

Submitted by Roldo on Thu, 02/05/2009 - 13:18.

The Plain Dealer gave us a billboard of headlines on the Medical Mart on its front page today but little – if anything – new that would indicate whether a medical mart would mean anything to the Cleveland area economy. Other than a drain, that is.

Headlines – all with question marks – don’t add to the debate at all. They are simply a gimmick that attracts attention.

Why is it that the newspaper cannot inspire a real public debate about the necessity of spending $1 billion dollars for this project?

It seems so obvious that that is the question requiring answers.

more inescapable fees?

Submitted by Susan Miller on Thu, 02/05/2009 - 11:42.

Here you go: another example of how the government and its agencies don't seem to want to reward good behavior but will instead lump us all together: From Ted Strickland's budget balancing proposal. Fees instead of taxes.

 

I originally thought to put this in the discussion of NEORSD and its stowmwater program fee increases, but reconsidered. Still, it's all about a little fee increase here and a little fee increase there.

Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy.” Captain G. M. Gilbert, the Army psychologist , Nuremberg trails

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Thu, 02/05/2009 - 03:26.

In my work with the defendants (at the Nuremberg Trails 1945-1949)
I was searching for the nature of evil and I now think I have come close to defining it. A lack of empathy. It’s the one characteristic that connects all the
defendants, a genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow men.
