Biking to Community Gardens in Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 08/15/2009 - 19:21.
I am perhaps too tired to give the entire run down now, but suffice to say we took routes I never knew existed - those funky pedestrian trapezes over the interstate highways, paths through old neighborhoods, new rail road right of way bike paths.   
 
Norm has been advocating urban gardening, and today the riders could see that it is beginning to take root!

Waste not, Want not.  Carnegie Medical Building Interrupted

The Cleveland Clinic continues its decades long emphasis on sterilization.  Today the demolition of the Carnegie Medical Building left this class room - with its drapes, chairs, and tables - a bit interrupted. 

Sustainability.   That's our Creed!  Below is an inside look at Sustainable Cleveland!

Demanding the Black President show his papers, as if he were a runaway slave

Submitted by Eternity on Wed, 08/12/2009 - 22:15.

Max Eternity - I have many criticisms of President Obama, even though I voted for him.  But let me be clear, I voted for him not because I though he was going to save us from all the doom and gloom, but because I thought he had the most integrity of all the candidates that were (by June '08) left standing.  Every president, and indeed every citizen, should be held accountable.  However, the anti-black, hateful, vicious, character assisination that we are all witnessing right now...the slanderous, unsubstantiated attacks on Obama, go way, way, way beyond the pale.

 Your remarks sounded more like a backhanded compliment than actual accolades to the neighborhood who worked hard to make a beautiful & colorful green space.

 
If you expect the best from people sometimes you will get it!!

HOW MUCH $$$ DOES CLEVELAND LOSE TO ABATEMENT

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 07/22/2009 - 07:47.

Civic corruption comes in many forms. We have been hearing a lot about corruption these days. However, the focus is very narrow. Unnecessarily so.

RTA TAKES US FOR THE WRONG RIDE

Submitted by Roldo on Sat, 07/18/2009 - 14:06.

Is RTA taking us on another ride? As a transit system, it seems more like a servant of the same old special interests when it should be taking care of transit-dependent citizens.

Pedestrians were King - now they're dirt

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 07/04/2009 - 00:27.

Autos have, and are, destroying Cleveland. This pedestrian bridge used to join neighborhoods over active rail road tracks.  The bridge is still passable, but the tracks lack activity, so why hike up the stairs?

And the neighborhood now?

I have a hard time understanding how the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) can give $100,000 to get something on the ballot but can’t it support what it wants on the ballot.
