I live very close to Brookside Park, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park--I can walk to all of  these great public amenities, which in my mind, makes my neighborhood an appealing and liveable place.

That's right.  You are looking at a photo of my dishes, because the sunlight was so magnificent this morning and it
made me think of young Khalid and his comments about glass and magnifying sunlight to serve energy needs.  Ten years old and he understands energy needs and loves earth science.  Of course, he lives in CLE, so he is doomed, right?

Whats Up Realneo?

Submitted by Zebra Mussel on Thu, 11/24/2011 - 15:02.

So I was on here a while back and it was getting spammed out by wing nuts.   Then I come  back like a year later and its crazy warfare drama between the core Realneo players.. exactly the kind of drama things need to stay edgy, but exactly the kind of energy I care not to read.  All the raa raa was not what I use to come around here for, or contribute to.  Is all the bantering, lawyering, and mean talk over around these parts?

The city of Cleveland is proposing to build a garbage incinerator at the Ridge Road Transfer Station.

It would involve the cooking of trash at high temperatures and the release of toxic pollutants into the air.

This site lists all of the many reasons Cleveland should not build a garbage incinerator in Cleveland:
 

Progressive or Regressive Energy Solutions?

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 10:14.

Across Ohio--cities are looking at progressive ways to produce sustainable energy.  Zoos are at the forefront of this trend, most likely,  because they are in the business of saving species from extinction. 

The Cincinatti Zoo has the largest publicly accessible solar array in Ohio.  Columbus and Akron will be following soon. 

Monumental Stupidity

Submitted by lmcshane on Fri, 10/28/2011 - 10:07.

By now, some City of Cleveland residents are alerted to the fact that the Jackson administration pledged away $1.5 million dollars of your money to Peter Tien (of Sunpo Optu LED scam) to facilitate the construction of a garbage incinerator on Ridge Road.

Is Cleveland doomed to become a city without music if legislation is updated that spells out the rules for bars, taverns and restaurants that want to add live music?

Dates of upcoming O.D.O.T. Question & Answer meetings

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/19/2011 - 02:57.

Since I had only one day notice of the meeting, I complained and found that other people had had earlier notices and Sammy Catania had provided Henry Senyak with a list of dates. I suggested they be put in the newsletter. Well, the date it has to go to the printer doesn't allow for that. Well, print the whole list! Fortunately, the helpful Public Information Officer sent me the list, and here it is! I hope in the future to not be the only one raising questions/from the board.

A Great Lakes "Thanks" to the Plain Dealer!

Submitted by Lee Batdorff on Sat, 07/16/2011 - 19:16.

Dear editors of the Plain Dealer:

Thank you for the continuing focus the Plain Dealer has been giving to the
controversial, and potentially very damaging to all of the Great Lakes region,
piece of legislation that passed both the Ohio House and Senate—and especially
for your “11th hour” editorial leading Ohio governor John Kasich, and all readers,
back to his utterance of support for the Great Lakes last year on the campaign trail.

ANOTHER CHANCE TO ASK O.D.O.T. QUESTIONS

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/12/2011 - 21:32.

TWDC sent out another announcement about the ODOT  updates, which are to be held monthly. This one gives very little time since the meeting is TOMORROW. Since they are to be held every month, it looks like it will always be on a Wednesday and at Sokolowski's. Tonight is only an hour, not two hours as it was last time. Text of the message follows.

My bouquets are legendary…but trumped by Becker’s donuts

Submitted by Oldroser on Thu, 07/07/2011 - 00:43.

I’ve so far given away over 30 bouquets of roses, starting with old garden rose bouquets to TWDC’s Chris Garland, ODOT’s Craig Hebegrand and to Director Ron Brown of Cleveland Planning in gratitude for his help. At the recent ODOT update and Q&A at Sokolowski’s, Safety Director Marty Flask sat beside me and said he’d heard about the bouquet for Director Brown, it was mentioned at a meeting, adding that City Hall is a small place.

I have been busy with my rose garden

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/05/2011 - 03:32.

My mini wire-haired dachshunds and my roses are my great joys. So I can safely work in the garden, there are conduit pipes and fence posts stuck here and  there with wire cable connecting them for me to grab onto if I start to fall. You can see this at the right of the picture below.

I got an email from Jocelynn Clemings, Public Information Officer, about a letter that had been sent out saying that the proposed improvements to the eastbound section of I-90 from I-490 north and eastward to E 14th may necessitate right-of-way from my property and work crews may need to enter my property over the next several weeks to do survey and other work. It mentioned Jason Wise, ODOT's Project Manager, at 216-584-2144.
