Re: “Maui Sands in Sandusky Will Get the 'Hotel Impossible' Treatment on the Travel Channel

I am one of those bad Trip Advisor reviews from 2 years ago. I guess that should be a sign of how bad it was when, years later, I'm writing an anonymous message about how awful that hotel is. It remains one of my worst hotel experiences and I travel for work. Let's just say the only thing dirtier than my room was the attitude of the staff. Looking at recent reviews it seems things have only gotten worse.

The whole experience was so bad it's become an inside joke with the people I traveled with for that particular trip. When we check into a hotel and find something amiss we always say things like, "Wow, we have towels? In our room? Our shower drains? What about our free food in the room from the last guests? Must not be the Maui Sands!"

Re: “Federal Government Will Auction Public Land in Ohio to Oil and Gas Drillers

It's almost as if our Government, the banksters, and the oil thugs are trying to destroy our planet as quickly as they possibly can. NASA has already stated that ANY new oil development puts all our lives at extreme risk. There's also an oil GLUT; not enough buyers, and tankers full of the crap are lined up outside of Singapore and offshore in Norway. Google it! We have the tech to get off the stuff and save ourselves hundreds of billions in the process. But NO; destroying our planet in the next decade is so much more important!

We are ruled by psychopaths. Stand up to them!

Re: “Ohio Senate Passes 'Heartbeat Bill' Abortion Ban Bill; Now Heads to Ohio House

"Senator Capri Cafaro (D) of Hubbard added, It is not governments place to make these decisions for women. There is a time and place for government. This is not one of them.

Does this cat ever watch the news? I see stories daily of unfit mothers boiling their babies, throwing them from windows when their husband leaves them, contacting perverts on the internet to come and have sex with their 10 yr old daughter so the mother could watch, then killing and dismembering the child. But yeah, let's make this egotistical statement all feminists love to use, as if women are above reproach, every woman is of sound mind and shouldn't be told what to do when it comes to their decision of procreation. Right. Women are not flawless "gods" just because their body can incubate an egg and sperm. We need a license to have a car or gun, but any buffoon, drug addicted transient or irresponsible teenager can make a kid and ruin it's life. But yeah, not questioning women is more important.

Re: “Ohio Senate Passes 'Heartbeat Bill' Abortion Ban Bill; Now Heads to Ohio House

Meanwhile, the governor - who was obviously planning for a move to the White House (oops!) before he had to handle any tough issues caused by his voodoo economics - is sending out warning signals that the state may soon plummet into a recession.

Re: “From the Front of the House to the Back, Cleveland Restaurants are Dealing With a Talent Crunch

The biggest problem with higher-end restaurants and restauranteurs in general is that they are generally predisposed to the notion that most of the workers they will be hiring are transitional and, therefore, the need to invest in proper training, benefits and wages is of secondary importance. If they need somebody "good" (like an executive chef) they can just poach them from the competition. Everyone else is more or less expendable. Unfortunately, that's a terrible long term strategy.

The biggest problem with the customers of these establishments is they want high-end quality at a lower-end price -- i.e., they want the impossible. They expect their hanger steak entre to be impeccable, yet they expect it to cost less than $25. They expect their cocktail to be perfection, yet the $12 charge makes their head spin. Well, you can't have it both ways.

The moral: Unless proprietors and their customers share both the wealth and the cost, nothing will change.

Re: “City Announces Executive Director of New Non-profit to Combat Infant Mortality

Congrats! Is she qualified on paper? Yes. The sad fact is that Mayor Mush Mouth aka Jackson, has appointed a White woman to fix a Black problem. More so, he is also telling Black women with similar qualifications that you have no place, no value within your community to lead such a significant and important program. Sad. By the way, why isn't this program being nested within the Cleveland Health Department? Hmm, maybe no faith in the current director. Finally, why is this program being placed at CWRU vs city owned ices/property?

Re: “Transit Where? Public Square: An Update on the City's Biggest Debate

Why do people think they NEED to be dropped off in public square. Is being dropped off a few hundred feet away really an issue? Why are people opposed to having a cohesive park in the middle of the city where there aren't hundreds of buses driving through daily? I would not want my kids running around in the splash park with buses driving by 10 yards away. I'm also not afraid to say that the people that get on and off the buses (not saying all, but a large percentage) are less than desirable. If anyone lives downtown they will understand how awful it is walking by the current bus stops in front of terminal tower. I have been frequently harassed and witnessed numerous fights while walking through. I understand the city promised to allow the buses through as part of its proposal, but short of this fact, I cannot logically see any benefit to having the buses go through the middle of a park and CLE Scene has not cited a single other reason for supporting the buses. There is no possible way a reroute is going to cost $2.6 (if this figure includes the park renovations then it is plausible). Good job bashing a rival news outlet though. This much you accomplished.

Re: “Ohio Lawmakers May Allow Pet Stores to Sell Puppies from Puppy Mills

Now that Dick Goddard has retired from Fox-8, maybe this will give him something to do. But knowing the glacial speed at which laws are changed in Ohio, he will have to live to be a hundred years old before he sees positive results.

Follow the lobbying money -- state lawmakers are obedient dogs to those who cut the largest checks and provide the best benefits.....which can extend well after their careers as elected/appointed politicians are over.

Re: “11 Reasons Why Arrival is the Best Film of the Year

Director Denis Villeneuve presents a truly sublime experience in communication, oneness, language and outside intervention.

The beauty of the film is how they steer clear of the predictable 'alien' word. What starts off as the arrival of extra terrestrials in towering space crafts, quickly turns in to a quest to decode and understand why they are here. How they do it forms the crux of the movie.

Amy Adams has acted with so much dignity and grace, never wavering in her 'holistic' approach to our guests. Jeremy Renner ably supports her, and the pieces of the story quietly fall into place. It's wonderful how a concept in the film is explained by the very way the story is told.

A sci-fi film with so much soul.

Re: “Yes, I Moved to Cleveland and You Should Too

Look, Cleveland is OK, but merely just OK. The reason why real estate is cheaper here is because it's more BORING and BLAND here! Once you've experienced the good food, orchestra, zoo, theatres, metroparks, etc., there is nothing much else to do here. Lake Erie is a joke of a mud puddle, compared to the great salt water beaches of America, the traffic lights are timed to stop you from advancing a few blocks at a time when driving, and the culture is a lot more homogenous than the more larger cities and metro areas. Drive just a few miles away from Cleveland proper, and you enter vast swaths of unexciting farmland. The people that diss Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Chicago, etc. are usually the ones that can't AFFORD it! I've lived in some of those cities, and I would, without hesitation move back if I could! But for now, i'm STUCK in Cleveland!

Re: “Federal Government Will Auction Public Land in Ohio to Oil and Gas Drillers

There is a Rally in front of Sherrod Brown's office (200 N High St) this Thursday Dec 8th, at 11:30am. It is part of our never-ending search for Sherrod Brown...where has he been? Wherever he has been, it certainly hasn't been working on protecting Ohio's wild landscapes and public forests. Bring signs, the theme is Ohio's wildlife.

There is also a protest scheduled for Dec 10th, at 9 am, in front of the Athens Ranger Station (13700 US-33, Nelsonville, OH 45764). This is a peaceful protest. Bring instruments, art, posters- anything to show your love for Wayne National Forest. Some people will be camping over, bring tent/gear if you intend to stay until Dec 13th.

You can also call/email Kathleen Atkinson, Sherrod Brown, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) & Department of Interior (DOI).

Join us in support- protect Wayne National Forest! Check our facebook pages for more information #savethewayne, #keepwaynewild
