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.

This is the mural at the end of the little garden.  Sorry if I was off about the address, I was more interested in taking the pictures that the actual address.

I know this mural has been on NEO before but it is still pretty to look at again.

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.

$68 MILLION READY FOR HANDOVER TO MMPI

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 09/02/2009 - 13:43.

Cuyahoga County taxpayers now have “contributed” some $68 million for the proposed Medical Mart project. I guess all the great needs of this area have been superseded by special interests again.

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.

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.

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 08/07/2009 - 09:56.

In many NEO communitities, scrabbling for municipal operating cash has led to the licensing of big game hunting. 

The biggest game in East Cleveland and Cleveland, Ohio is the BUCK. Image on downhill stretch of N.Taylor before reaching  Euclid.

Who is reviewing this business?  Do I see Frank Russo's decal on the speed cam?
