CLEVELAND WIND PLANS - WAY DOWN THE ROAD (and not this road)

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 11/14/2007 - 22:32.

While Bill Mason and Richard Stuebi and the Cuyahoga Energy "Task Force" have lunches in the Thompson Hine Key Center and talk about their "Study" of about 10 wind turbines about 3 miles out in Lake Erie off of Cleveland - turbine towers are being trucked NOW NOW NOW East on I90 through Ohio to installation locations where they will produce electricity TOMORROW, TOMORROW, TOMORROW.

But that's ok, because Cuyahoga has a well padded and vibrant economy - so we can afford to reach for the iconic lake wind MOON and let our more practical and hungrier neighbors put their money into the real thing.

CIVIC INTEREST IN BREUER TOWER CAN CAN COMMISSIONERS HAGAN & DIMORA & TURN OVER GOV'T IN CUYAHOGA

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/09/2007 - 18:40.

 

Neither the Gund Foundation nor the Cleveland Foundation made a peep to preserve the Breuer, and two of our County Commissioners (with the exception of Mr. Lawson-Jones) are (at best) too ignorant to appreciate the international architectural jewel which Jacobs bought and sold to the County  (The Breuer Tower, like the Coast Guard Station, shows Jacobs has erudite architectural taste?).
