POWER TO THE PEOPLE...KEEP DISRUPTING CORRUPTION.....EXPOSE IT ALL! (Or just keep paying those pensions of the corrupt!)

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Sun, 04/14/2013 - 02:21.

Thank you PD for your article about Prosecutor McGinty going after those corrupt jerks. It's kind of skewed reporting to make the points stated in the article; almost like a notice for McGinty to back off. As a citizen---I find it pathetic that any reporter would undermine the idea of recapitulating public coffers which are being paid out to corrupt assholes. You should be commending and saluting the public officials trying to have the backbone to go after the corrupt! So...keep up the great reporting.

Jewelry - only to be lost or stolen - misery inducing - why do we like Jewelry?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 04/13/2013 - 19:39.

What is it about jewelry that is attractive?   Not the cost, that is unattractive. 

And if you own jewelry you know that owning jewelry is a miserable experience.   You can't remember where you hid it.   And even if you could find it, you would probably lose it if you wore it.

I again spoke to Martin Reese this afternoon and learned that a meeting will take place on Monday.  According to Reese, this conference meeting is taking place to bring Coucilman Cimperman in the loop and not a public meeting.  That being said beware of compromises.

UTILITY COMPANES USE ABUSIVE PRACTICES: Rolling Due Dates used by Utility Companies are Adverse to Low Income Families.

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 14:02.

Dear Dominion East Ohio Gas and First Energy; Please quit your policy of rolling due dates. You have the corporate capacity to amend the policy that creates unstable due dates for your bills. You also have the power to make a due date adjustment to all customers with particular attention on people on limited incomes like Social Security. Most of these recipients pay their bills when their checks come in.

Ladies and gentlemen

I have done nothing this evening but glued my ear to the phone.  One caller after the other filling me in on the Professor streetscape meeting.

First, how much development money has been promised to TWDC and/or its representatives for going along with the plans to slaughter and execute 21 charming and vivacious bloomers that have been marked for death in the next few days? 

How many more costly boondoggles does TWDC get at the expense of taxpayer and community dollars?

Cuyahoga County Land Bank - continues to give county taxpayer property to FLIPPERS

Submitted by Gone Fishin on Thu, 04/11/2013 - 19:55.

The Cuyahoga County Land Bank was created to keep property out of the hands of risky, out-of-state investors.  However, the land bank continues to give away property to these same risky investors that they were so concerned about.

Cuyahoga County Land Bank - county officials overlook delinquent property taxes Hypocrite Con Artist Gus Frangos Scam

Submitted by Gone Fishin on Tue, 04/09/2013 - 05:54.


I am not sure why the county has overlooked another one of Gus Frangos' shell properties which has been tax delinquent- for years.

I suppose the county is just picking on the little people that lack the ability to fight back and is still playing corrupt politcs.
