PLAIN DEALER LEADS FRADULENT MED MART PUSH

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 01/16/2009 - 13:38.

Don’t you just love the dance the establishment, its puppet politicians and its subservient media are doing with the medical mart.

“This community needs to move ahead on the medical mart, and that means pushing for a decision on where to build it,” headlined a Plain Dealer editorial, “Decision time.”

Well, editorial writers, no one is building a medical mart.

VOINOVICH - FREE & EASY WITH PUBLIC MONEY

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 01/14/2009 - 14:01.

George Voinovich was a very selective conservative. That made him also a very selective “moderate” Republican.

My experience with Voinovich tells me he used his ethnic background to represent wealth in the community and in the nation. He successfully portrayed himself as personally frugal and the image carried him a long way.

I once told an audience that Voinovich would never be Governor because people saw him as a Mayor, nothing more. I was obviously very wrong.

WHEN WILL CLEVEHOGA REACH THE LIGHT AT THE END OF OUR "INVESTMENT" TUNNEL?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 01/13/2009 - 19:05.

 

Hawk, this photo of the inside of the Beehive School I went back and took for you.   And in looking down the frozen hallway with the decaying paint and the broken windows against the west, my thoughts flashed to the many other interiors I'd seen like this in Cleveland.

Why?

Mystery artist ID?

Can you name the artist of this piece? How does sculpture affect your psyche? Today, I had to remember this piece to ground my troubled mind.

Resale Issues in a poor economy

Submitted by DesireeSchmitt on Sun, 01/11/2009 - 20:23.

I just viewed a clip this evening and hit Google to find out more...

Congress recently passed a law to protect children under the age of 12 against lead poisoning.  The law was meant to protect against toys poisoned with lead, or lead based paint.  The law is actually very broadly written and also covers clothing... all clothing...

There is also very little guidance about the new law... basically... resale shops have to test every article to prevent against lead content... how will that work if testing costs more than the sale price of the garment?

A COMMUNITY'S SENSE OF SELF-WORTH

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/10/2009 - 16:42.

 

The book lockers in the photo above are an example of simple technology on which tax money ought to be spent.   These book lockers are also an example of how, in very simple ways, a local government can dramatically influence a community's sense of self-worth.

reading a book on a snowy day

Submitted by Susan Miller on Sat, 01/10/2009 - 10:45.

Snow is blowing by my window this morning and I have just watched my neighbor and his 6 year old son dig out their driveway and drive away. I cruised over to cleveland.com to see what is news in NEO... not much.

So I returned to REALNEO and opened a book: REALNEO TOPSOIL - Technology Optimization Platform for Social Organization, Innovation and Learning

NICE AND FAIR IN NEO

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/09/2009 - 16:35.

One nice thing about Cleveland and Cuyahoga County is that they treat every citizen and land owner in the same fair and square way - when it comes to taxes, TIFs, subsidies, UDAG funds, building code enforcement, and “favors”.

Fair and Square.

With lots of sunshine thrown in.

TODAY'S PD - SKIMPY ON NEWS; HEAVY ON SPORTS

Submitted by Roldo on Thu, 01/08/2009 - 14:22.

Today’s Plain Dealer is very instructive.

The Metro pages have little news in six pages.
Ironically, the major metro page ad is from bad boy Auditor Frank Russo. It is a listing of delinquent personal property taxes – smaller than usual since the tax is being eliminated. Even so, the Russo ad takes up the entire second page and four inches across Page 6, which is dominated by the weather report, not news.

Then paid obituary notices eat up two full pages and a bit more.
The front Metro page is dominated – not by hard news - but by a sports story out of Avon.

CRY FOR CLEVELAND OR HAVE I ASKED THAT BEFORE

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 01/07/2009 - 13:47.

In the 1990s, Cleveland had a rather highly educated City Council. I can’t remember the number but the percentage of lawyers among the 21 members was high.

Cleveland also had an intelligent, crafty and feisty Mayor in Michael White.

Today, City Council appears – with a few exceptions – to be inept and even farcical. Mayor Frank Jackson may be steady but one wouldn’t call him artful or exciting.

Does it make any difference?
