Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 08:24.

 I have been asked to post Henry Senyak's letter to the Plain Dealer editors - some of you may recall that Henry Senyak actually tipped WOIO Channel 19 off to the hijinks of Russo and Dimora -well BEFORE the PD even began to unravel the obvious story:

1968 Ben Shahn PEACE poster for presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 10/24/2013 - 15:04.

The times have changed since 1968.    

Today, when the president meets with Pakastani officials, it's drones, not peace, which is the topic of discussion.   

The NYTimes, in 2008 compared Ben Shahn's 1968 Peace poster with Shephard Fairey's Obama Hope poster.

Stealing from the Scrap thieves in Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 10/19/2013 - 17:32.

In every community our overall impression of that community is aggregated from numerous experiences.   

Google hasn't provided the public with an algorithm to process this data, so here I go....

I had an experience recently which involved delivering scrap metal (light iron) to a junk yard.

Drop Anchor on Port Authority levy - AGAIN!

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 20:20.

 The Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority is an abomination.   

Myers University, University Square Parking Garage -  on and on failure after failure.  Corruption - the folks are steering millions of dollars of bonds - which Cuyahoga citizen taxpayers are guaranteeing for Wall Street, to projects which are complete losers.

Real Estate in North East Ohio - Did government do it?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 12:22.

If you own real estate in North East Ohio - in many, many communities - your real estate may be valueless.  In fact, your real estate may be a financial  liability.

How did this happen?    

Has our corrupt, ignorant, and inept local governments caused this massive loss in equity?

Is it Rust Belt deterioration?

Federal banking policy?

Or is it "market forces"?  Racism?

Janet Moore - May Show art not well recorded

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 10/16/2013 - 13:58.

When I visited a friend recently I asked about this painting and was told that it was a May Show entry called "Starfish" painted by Janet Moore.   A sticker on the back of the masonite board confirmed that this painting was from the 38th May Show held in 1956.

They want to be above the law - The International Criminal Court (ICC) - Desmond Tutu (also 757 brayton crimnal gang family)

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 10/09/2013 - 21:19.

In just 2 days time, African leaders could kill off a great institution, leaving the world a more dangerous place. 

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the world’s first and only global court to adjudicate crimes against humanity. But leaders of Sudan and Kenya, who have inflicted terror and fear across their countries, are trying to drag Africa out of the ICC, allowing them the freedom to kill, rape, and inspire hatred without consequences.

Unsustainable Retirement Budgets for Homeowners with No Mortgages; Inflated costs of living force them into poverty

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Tue, 10/08/2013 - 14:15.

Governmental leadership in collaboration with the local not for profit industry have failed the public at large in 'planning' at multiple levels by completely disregarding demographic data that has forever been readily available to them in order to protect the residents in our community. Gentrification has been like gasification in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cuyahoga County leadership sells property taxes like a heroin junkie trying to get a quick fix

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Mon, 10/07/2013 - 23:34.

Cuyahoga County fiscal management is like a street junkie selling anything possible to sustain its bad habits............and to stay alive and afloat in a fiscally irresponsible and negligent format. The high of getting debts- it cannot afford -paid only lasts for small periods...so they'll need to continue selling off delinquent property taxes and assets to sustain their responsibilities enough to appear like everything is normal. What's the long term plan to balance the budget, reduce fiscal mismanagement, and stabilize our local economy?

Scrapper's Life in Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 10/02/2013 - 15:17.

 

With the Federal Government shut down, these two fellows were not able to visit Washingon, DC - so instead they are cruising the streets of Cleveland picking up anything metal - an old stove, the lawmower you left out, aluminum street signs, etc.   

Not having enough money for a rope or tie down straps, the top half of their load went onto the pavement in the intersection.

 In the Brooklyn Centre battle against the city of Cleveland over WC Reed field, I have been researching property transfers on West 15th street. This lead me to a discovery that parcel 00827061 at 3708 West 15th street, which no longer has a house on it, as it was torn down quickly without the owner of the foreclosed property US Bank being aware of this demolition, was sold on September 16, 2013 for $56,500...for a VACANT LOT...to Hogar Community Reinvestment LLC at 1001 N 3rd Ave Suite 1 in Phoenix Arizona, a District of Columbia limited liability company, not licensed in Ohio.
