I just spoke to Councilman Cimperman one day after W C Reed Park seemingly with no warning was closed off with flimsy fencing around almost the whole field which must be at least 50 acres. Of course any resourceful person just needs to climb over the hedge at the nursing home or cut through any yard on West 15th. The councilman who answered his own phone which I thought was AMAZING told me there is a meeting at St. Barbara's church on W. 15 to explain what is going on.

So I noticed that houses for sale in original slum-pipes cut out of the basement-missing windows-holes in the roof by Slavic Village Housing were generously given to them by HUD. For FREE!!! And now they are selling them 6608 Gertrude for $6000 and $3661.11 in back taxes mysteriously disappeared thanks to those of us in Cleveland who actually PAY their taxes. Or 6705 Clement also for $6,000 and the back taxes of $1784.24 ALSO were wiped clean without payment by the generousity of we the taxpayer. These "homes" are NOT repaired...they are handyman's specials.

Last year when the Ohio Department of Education released their scorecard information on all state schools, the Cleveland Municipal School District scored 1 (that's right ONE) out of 26. FYI the 10th Grade reading score was the only passing entry BARELY squeaking by with a 76.4%, 1.6% above the bare minimum. A very few schools improved their status and new signs were rushed to the printer and hung proudly above the entry door. For all the other schools, that did WORSE, which was most of them, the previous year's sign was left to flutter and fade in the brutal Cleveland elements.

Oh where oh where does Gary Sautter, Deputy Sheriff of Wasting Tax Dollars on Unnecessary Cleveland Schools live? Does he live in Cleveland??? Or Cuyahoga County?? Or does he live in Toledo? And if so where does he stay when "working" here? At a hotel? At a flop house? And who pays for his accomodation? Him...or the taxpayers in Cleveland? Is he on a per diem for his food? Is his BBF "Jerry" from Mansfield still in charge of all the actually buildings?

All the finger pointing and threats by fearless Teacher's Union BOSS David Quolke screaming at impoverished Cleveland property owner's to raise their taxes now don't affect him personally. The Hypocrite-In-Chief lives in a home on Hilary Drive in North Ridgeville which he and his wife purchased on August 19, 1998 for $189,000. He wouldn't be caught dead sending his own children to school in Cleveland. They are certainly not up to his rigid double standard

Orchard School "of Science" was to be RENOVATED according to the Master Facility Plan. Without asking anyone's permission, like for example THE TAXPAYERS, it was torn down instead. On the plan page devoted to this school, in a glaringly different typeface, without bothering to delete the word "renovated" from the top of the page on the original plan, the school will "open NEW in 2012". Unless it will be opening in transformational tents this is unlikely since the lot sits empty as of today May 26, 2012.

Willson (elementary) School on Ansel Road was built in a totally empty ghetto neighborhood. The school district said it was built "where more students needed it", than in its previous location on East 55th. The district bought 60 parcels of land and when the school was completed it could accomodate 587 students.
