I think HEK went to trial in January 09.  However, I was unable to attend.   This work is on the RR overpass over E42 or E41st near St Clair.   Would you rather see this or an expensive Cleveland+ banner touting "We've Got It All Together"?

THE MESSAGE IS IN THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT

dream mural woodhill clevelandIn my travels around Cleveland and elsewhere I realized that one of the landscape features in which I am most interested are the “markings” made on the environment. I don’t have the articulate smell of a dog – nosing around for that intense spot where a prior dog had lifted their leg. Rather it is my eyes that are influenced by the nuanced messages scattered about.

Fairfax Park  Mural Cleveland Ohio

 The neighborhood color ratio is right, but the mural is "sugared up".   Although I see an up to date Ipod user, I don't see any up to date dew rags or hoodies.  Maybe that's to accommodate the funding source...Frankly, reflecting on this mural and another new "dream" mural in the same neighborhood...I would have to say that these are hypocritical propaganda.   For one reason, the expression would be "peace in da hood"...I will attempt to find out who funded the murals.

Life may be giving and fulfilling if you are receptive. Consider the tree-top-tree

Perfect Tree

We wanted a real tree for the holiday, this year, but Evelyn and I don't like the idea of growing and cutting down and then transporting and throwing away a tree just for that. The carbon footprint, any way you do it, just seems a waste.

Ed Hauser Memorial Header: Trisha's Place

There was a special time in my life when Ed and I worked together, developing REALNEO. We worked in the Caxton and spent lots of time at our favorite Cleveland cafe, AJ Rocco's, on the ground floor. AJs is also where Ed held the screening party for "Citizen Hauser", and it was one of the first places I went to connect with Ed's spirit, after he passed on. This is a memorial pan from the day after Ed died.

REALNEO fonts and colors

Submitted by Jeff Schuler on Sun, 11/23/2008 - 00:07.

I've been messing around with some ideas for a favicon for REALNEO -- the little icon that shows up next to the URL in your browser, or when you bookmark the site, etc. Don't know about anyone else, but I'd really like to see REALNEO with its own icon instead of the standard Drupal raindrop.

I haven't gotten far yet, but I do believe I've hunted down the two fonts used in the logo, (heretofore a mystery, as far as I can tell.)

An old logo I found:

RFP - Request For Partners in Redevelopment of Coventry Elementary School and PEACE Park

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 11/07/2008 - 16:54.

The October 30, 2008 Sun Press lead cover story article (strangely... not on-line) was: "New Uses For Coventry? Music School Settlement, day care, and charter school send letters of interest". This reported, "The Intergenerational School's proposal also listed several partners: Richard Fleischman Architects, of Cleveland, Star Neighborhood Development, of East Cleveland, Strategic Resource Consultants, of Cleveland Heights, and City Fresh Cafeteria, Fresh Stop and Market, of Cleveland". "Fleischman would serve as design architect, while Star Neighborhood Development and Strategic Resource Consultants would likely be development partners...". "That proposal would also include a 1.5 acre "Urban Farm"...". I submitted the proposal, a public document, highlighted below and attached as a PDF, and can say the Sun Press report is largely correct, but the story is far from complete, and far more exciting than the Sun brings to light.
