Why does the Scene give bottom-dwelling dirtbag James Renner a platform for his alt-facts? Kevin Young was a cat-murdering, teen-girl assulting, fake bomb threat calling sociopath at best, and almost certainly a killer. Way to write an obit painting him as a victim while casting shade on others. Renner is out to line his own pockets. Sad.
Agreed with Brian that the Govt is definitely on the take, BUT natural gas fired plants are cleaner then coal, can be up and running reasonably quickly, and don't require huge subsidies like solar or wind.
Re Just The Facts above - - I would be very careful in expecting your response to elicit comfort. Invoking a government agency just doesnt' have the ring that it used to. If what you say is true on market competition then I say - God bless the free market - because my hope in having them close is avoiding a massive disaster.
whatever happened to $29.99???? They are $59.99!
This is an alarming statistic. But please get the facts straight. This is among high school students, not all CMSD students.
Again, a frightening statistic and an indicator of tough living conditions.
It's not the ABILITY of solar and wind... it's that the government is bankrolled by fossil fuels, so the stories they publish, the propaganda they spread, and the laws put into place all make it hard for solar and wind to compete.
Why would energy companies want to move towards solar/wind? They, as well as the fossil companies, make a bagillian dollars using dirty fuels, and charging customers exorbitant amounts for them.
Don't drink the fossil Kool-Aid any longer... read for yourselves.
Uhhhhh. This sounds like a pretty bogus statistic.
I was so excited to know that Cleveland was building an Aquarium. When the ticket prices came out, I was less than enthused. I visited the Aquarium in Atlanta Georgia, it was spectacular, and jaw dropping, I decided to wait to hear feedback from other visitors... I'm glad I did not go. If you charge a premium amount of money for something... make it worth people's while... They need to remember who the aquarium is for. A family of 4 or 6 could barely afford admission, let along eating and souvies...
Frank Jackson is too busy with RTA buses to mumble out a comment.....and Eric Gordon could probably care less.
Davis Besse is a licensed nuclear reactor in accordance with regulations and requirements established by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It is monitored very closely by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Based on that fact it is safe to operate. The basis for its possible closure is based on market competition from other forms of fuel such as natural gas. So don't confuse safety with the energy generation competitive market.
Meant to respond to Dennis Damico comment above.
@ John - - yes, i feel for these workers, it sucks, we all will be displaced by some change eventually but that's called progress. Your comment makes me even more nervous - humans are just too prone to laziness, carelessness, and inattention. Now add to it paycheck woes and who knows what kind of error can happen. Look at all the trains that crash with qualified conductors. Sorry John, I disagree, shut them down, and lets get clean burning natural gas and other renewabales that when they go boom don't create Chernobyl. I'm happy to pay an extra $10 per mos to know I'm not living between two Kennedy era nuclear disasters waiting to happen.
I worked at Perry for 27 years. Aside from the occasional screwballs in upper management, the general workforce are good hard working people that care about nuclear safety and their community. I feel sorry for them, because now in addition to the daily pressure of keeping the plant running in legal compliance they now have to worry about losing their jobs.
Close all the coal fired and nuclear power plants and you will finally see what a failure solar and windmill technology is. Even if you loaded up all the streets in America with solar panels they still would not produce enough to power the nation.
It always amazes me how much clout the team owner robber barons have over elected officials. It's even more amazing to watch the voters continue to elect these people and to vote for their tax increases.
Whenever I read journalistic outrage over the Trump Administration's invocation of "alternative facts," I have to assume the reporters in question have spent no time in Northeast Ohio, where "alternative facts, couched in a fog of self-serving bullshit, and served with a heaping teaspoonful of arrogance and thuggish behavior, have been The Way Things Are Done (and largely by the same group of sociopaths) in Cuyahoga County since at least the peak of the Mike White kleptocracy...We are desperately in need of a disruptive campaign for Mayor...These oligarchs have got to be stopped...
Davis Besse..1977 stuck open relief valve. 1985 main feedwater pumps shutdown. 2002 football sized reactor head hole. 2003 had 5 hr loss safety monitoring due to computer virus. 2008 tritium leak. 2010 replacement head for 2002 problem found to have 24 of 69 nozzles cracked with one leaking boric acid. 2011 shield building crack. 2012 reactor coolant pump seal leak. 2015 had 3 day shutdown for steam leak. How many times are they gonna play with nuclear catastrophe over there?
The minute I see Fred Nance's name I go "The public is going to get screwed." Remember how he negotiated the city's deal with the Browns and then turned around and went to work for the Browns almost immediately?
Not sure how you go once a week for sandwiches when the market next door has been closed for almost 2 months
This is big money blaming the consumer/ecommerce on,the pay themselves too damn much and didn't forcast maitnence or unwillingness to therefore pay the fixing fucking bill. Well see here the greedy american businessman such as them selfs shall not inherit the fall-out(only Ohioans wil-due to an uprise in the economy) parden the pun.
Nice, objective journalism there. I used to hang out with both of them. Dan Dreifort wouldn't hurt a fly, and Kevin Young was a violent misogynist. One time, Kevin actually left a party at my house in the middle of the night to go bang on the windows of a girl who'd jilted him, scaring the shit out of her. You posted the FBI interviews with Kevin on your site Renner. Did you skip the part where the FBI interrogators laid out their rationale that it was actually Young? You're a shitbag Renner.
