A Man Of Valor

Submitted by jerleen1 on Sat, 05/28/2016 - 03:09.

 A MAN OF VALOR

He appeared from out of nowhere,

No one knew from where he came.

No one recalled or recognized him,

No one remembered his name.

Some called him a bum,

Some said he was no good,

Some said he was but a vagrant,

Camped out somewhere in the woods.

Many about town called him  chicken,

A yellow streak right down his back.

Many taunted and teased him,

Most just called him ole dirty Jack.

Socialites thought he was repulsive,

Wrapped up spring semester at Tri-C

Submitted by jerleen1 on Sat, 05/17/2014 - 14:18.

Hello to everyone out in the RealNeo World. I have not gone away - but am taking an important break. I have just finished my spring (2nd) semester at Tri-C. I am not blowing my own horn - but I finished with a 3.68 GPA. Somebody said something about the "Dean's List" and an Honors English Class in the fall. How's that for an "uneducated hillbilly" for all those who treated me as though I fell off a turnip truck. Just so you all know - you can teach an "old" dog new tricks. I have not had so much fun in many moons.

TREMONT WEST DEVELOPMENT CORP. - CITY OF CLEVELAND AND ELECTED OFFICIALS DEFUNCTING TREMONT COMMUNITY

Submitted by jerleen1 on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 00:34.

Ladies and gentlemen

I have done nothing this evening but glued my ear to the phone.  One caller after the other filling me in on the Professor streetscape meeting.

First, how much development money has been promised to TWDC and/or its representatives for going along with the plans to slaughter and execute 21 charming and vivacious bloomers that have been marked for death in the next few days? 

How many more costly boondoggles does TWDC get at the expense of taxpayer and community dollars?

Frank Giglio helplessly huddled beneath a tree as  rain started to drizzle down on the morning of December 9, 2008.   With unmarked manned police cars stationed curb side on both the North and South bound lanes of West 14th Street,  Frank could do nothing more than shiver in the wet old and watch as his home was ravaged by the long arm of the law.

Today was a good day to move the machines out onto the front porch, give  my granddaughter (who just turned 8) a big bag of scrap material and enjoy watching her learning to piece her first strip (crazy) quilt.

When we packed up around 4:30, she looked over and said, "Grandma, didn't we have a great day."

We're starting a "Summer 2011" scrapbook to include all the different things she's learning to do while school's out.  We started this project with giving her some cake icing and letting her decorate a cake.

COUNCILMAN CIMPERMAN HAS PARTICIPATED IN MANY DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM IN TREMONT

Submitted by jerleen1 on Sat, 05/14/2011 - 14:20.

http://www.fox8.com/news/

GO TO "COUNCILMAN CALLS FOR VALET INVESTIGATION."

He has even sat in on meetings and out right said it was "illegal" for valets to charge and park on public streets.  Why does ne not call for "monitoring" and an investigation when Tremont residents {including elderly and handicapped} complain about having to drive around for up to three hours before they could park close enough to their house to be able to walk there?

You have to feel for restaurant owners in Cleveland. They pay through the nose for water and sewer usage service, property taxes, etc. Now, City Council is allowing clown cars (food trucks) to drive around the city and steal their business and has outlawed certain ingredients. Next, council members are going after sugar-filled sodas.

READ: CIMPERMAN HAS DUG HIMSELF SO DEEP IN THE POCKETS OF THE RICH HE WOULDN'T KNOW A POOR MAN IF ONE KNOCKED ON HIS DOOR

Councilman has long ago forgot whatever he thought he knew about poor people.

A question:  If a member of the mafia pays for your supper to keep your mouth busy so you don't complain about him stealing your television out the back door, does that mean he is not actually a member of the mafia?

This photo was taken on Thursday evening in front of Fahrenheit's at 2417 Professor Avenue (Tremont).

Immediately after I snapped a couple of shots, I went directly across the street to a TWDC economic Development Committee meeting wherein B & H Assistant Director Ron O'Leary was in attendance.

I brought this matter to the attention of those present and was told by Sammy Catania that City of Cleveland Superintendant of Public sidewalks John Petkac had been out and deemed the hazardous path safe for all - including citizens confined to wheelchairs.
