Walk the Walk: If all who enjoyed Frank's parties would contribute the cost of their daily latte, his property would be safe.

Submitted by Oldroser on Wed, 07/31/2013 - 03:45.

Much has been written here about the shameful way Frank Giglio has been treated and the illegal, not just crooked, way his property was stolen. Now, Lily writes that, although he is now on the monthly pay plan, there is a chance that he might also lose his mother's property. She herself is in terrific pain and so less able to do her usual, magnificant job of helping others.

Cuyahoga County - and the LOOPHOLE

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 07/27/2013 - 12:16.

Why is it that anyone with delinquent property taxes in Cuyahoga County can continue to buy additional properties?  

Would you NOT think that delinquent tax status on any property would preclude a delinquent owner from buying a property from Fannie Mae?  

Well, it just happened in my neighborhood and this time the guy didn't even bother to camouflage his name with an LLC - like good old Lucky Ogor!

Personal affiliations cannot be legislated, dictated, constitutionally dictated.  

Love and affection and interest cannot be mandated via politics.

These folks are showing us (in Ohio) that personal relationships are defined by those in the relationship, not by government.

The STUPID CALENDAR OF EVENTS.....divide and conquer....

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Tue, 07/23/2013 - 13:16.

 Look, I know this sounds stupid; because we all live different lives....but when I was campaigning; I wanted to impose a county wide CALENDAR OF EVENTS and post it so that EVERY EVENT IN THE COUNTY was posted, public, private, and in between.....Perhaps a database of opportunities free and costly, educational and artistic, loving and caring; for the public at large to see and have the timely opportunity to plan and participate in along the way....

Good Night All...............

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Tue, 07/23/2013 - 01:27.

Fun....what is it? 

Shall we sing, dance, drink, and be merry? 

Shall we swim, play cornhole, and watch TV? 

Shall we play some video games, watch a movie, or hang out around a bar? 

Shall we tell jokes, hang out around a bon fire, and roast some weenies? 

Shall we???? 

I mean; it's all a matter of opinion....FUN...

For the corrupt; it's robbing the working class and using the quotas of poor folks to climb the career ladders... 

For the working man; it's beating down the poor man...

 Recently; I drove a long distance in support of a terminal situation.... 

As my eyes watched the roads, my mind travelled....

Small town America is no different than Cleveland....

Generations have moved about and the current families simply don't want to carry on the cumbersome family businesses of days before... 

Vacant businesses and homes across our nation show the signs of a recent demise in Americana at large.

 Frank Giglio's Bashing

Frank Giglio's property is located on a gold mine.


Frank Giglio has been repeatedly harassed over his property on West 14th Street in Tremont for nearly 20 years.

Over the past couple months, Giglio has complained to me repeatedly that the inspectors were harassing him again and  he was concerned about another search warrant on his property.

Trayvon trial - our system is no longer effective

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 07/12/2013 - 23:25.

 Juries are no longer effective.  if they ever were.   Is there a better concept?   

what are the alternatives to "jury" trial?   Of our peers?   

Much like Harry Potter here.   Weird. 

I am not impressed with the present judicial system. 

The Zimmerman/Martin jury has no window through which to escape.  

Why is it that the jury is damned?

Recent studies by psychologists and social scientists in the US and UK suggest that contrary to mainstream media stereotypes, those labeled “conspiracy theorists” appear to be saner than those who accept the official versions of contested events.

Tiny and Trayvon - Shoot to kill - but get your teeth kicked out....so it's self defense...

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 07/07/2013 - 22:15.

 It's a hot evening and I was just cutting up some food, and I flashed back to a story Tiny told me.   

Wasn't actually a "story", it was an explaination of why Tiny didn't have any front teeth.

Tiny wasn't.    He got that nick name just for the reverse.   6'7".   Carry a cast iron bathtub up four flights on his back - alone.  Like breaking sticks.   Tiny my ass.   A giant.

Ward 14 - dirty politics in NEO

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 07/04/2013 - 09:37.

The media is largely ignoring the simmering council race in Ward 14 - focused on Eugene Miller and Jeff Johnson - another power play with Sweeney written all over it.  

But, the story on near west side is far more volatile with a history worth revisiting.  

See the historic editorials by Nelson Cintron and, at the time, Miriam Ortiz-Maldonado.


Submitted by Satinder P S Puri on Wed, 07/03/2013 - 15:10.



What used to be the main entrance to historic 81-year old John Marshall High School – an architectural gem which recently underwent an illegitimate & senseless destruction -- brought about by Cleveland’s corrupt pols – Mayor Jackson & Councilman Martin J. Sweeney (also City Council President), a corrupt & visionless Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and their multitude of cronies!
