UNSAFE WHEELCHAIR PASSAGE, STROLLER CLEARANCE - AS WELL AS LITTLE ROOM FOR THE WALKING IMPAIRED

 This is a pic that I took last winter showing not only little to no room for handicapped accessability but even not enough room for able bodied pedestrians to make it around the tight squeeze of the fence that is called temporary.  This is not to mention the big semi truck bus kitchen on wheels the size of a house that stays parked either on the corner of Jefferson or Professor blocking the view of traffic coming into the intersection and is sooner or later going to cause a little kid to get seriously injured or killed when it darts out in front of a car because this big thing is

we the pro-se people - ( legal representing ones self without a lawyer in court)

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Sun, 09/27/2009 - 00:41.

Welcome. No matter if the issues are a court appointment, filing paperwork for Sovereign issues or credit/banking/tax problems. Or JUST to be FREE! All we want is to be left alone from government! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The PRO SE - what does it mean? What other words go along with it? Court, self defense in front of a judge, arrest, jail, bond, bail bond - to name a few. Some people say the Name: Sui Juris ; is a Latin phrase that literally means “of one’s own laws”. - Or use "PRO SE" Sovereign.

RESCUE RAILROAD

Submitted by jerleen1 on Sat, 09/05/2009 - 23:31.

Today I went on my first run of the Rescue Railroad.  I was invited to ride shotgun on one leg of the journey to Mansfield, Ohio and back to Cleveland with three of the original twelve little dogs that first started out on this run.  The engineer of this particular leg was Ted Thelander of Near West Neighbors in Action. 

I believe that six of the canines were transported by one driver all the way to New York and the other six were divided into two groups for convenience of the transporters.

On the Road at Night

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 09/05/2009 - 17:33.

 Driving at night on the interstates at 65 MPH is really pretty crazy.    Your vision is about a 1000xs less able to collect life saving data than in the daylight. 

Is that a deer looking to go for a meal in the median?  Just a shadow in the asphalt or a 42 lb steel reinforced radial truck tire chunck?  

Whatever...

Cruise control doesn't get scared and even falter a 1/2 MPH.
