Re: “Father Under Fire: A Westlake Church Rallies Around its Pastor After Charges that He Sexually Abused His Adopted Daughter

Walk away from church on the rise.. there are other godly churches who have morally led Pastors who have studied and trained to be the Messenger for the Lord. This bozo became a Pastor to become rich off the suckered who attend his church. He studied under Joel Osteen, now there's a man who knows how to swindle money out of people! People believe his garbage!

Re: “On the Road with the Wheelie Kings of Cleveland

We saw a group of about 20 vehicles ATVs doing wheelies and dirt bikes Sunday 11/6/2016 going south on Nottingham/185th towards Euclid Avenue at about 6pm. And also two different unlicensed cycles and an ATV run a red light causing green light traffic to stop from a Cleveland street into a pedestrian area of CSU 12 minutes later. They seemed to be out to have fun but their actions are extremely dangerous and give the impression of anarchy in addition to being illegal.

Re: “Father Under Fire: A Westlake Church Rallies Around its Pastor After Charges that He Sexually Abused His Adopted Daughter

I, too, attended this church for a few years - at the very beginning. I remember meeting an older guy who tried to exploit me.

So, this is not a surprise at all. But what I found sickening is the lying for two years after it was reported to the local authorities, and the victim blaming. This is typical.

In an article, they (Jordan and Paul) were quoted as stating, "We not only have faith in our Lord but also in our system of justice" and maintained their innocence. While charges were dropped against the former, I hope justice is served and Paul is, at the very least, listed on the sexual offenders list.

I'm absolutely sure that if there were other allegations of sexual misconduct in that church that were covered up, then others are also involved. It's a team sport. I hope more parents and children come forward, and report anything unusual and there is a full investigation, and audit of their financials.

Sexual exploitation and abuse usually go hand in hand with money. There could be a kick back of some sort.

Re: “Father Under Fire: A Westlake Church Rallies Around its Pastor After Charges that He Sexually Abused His Adopted Daughter

I was extremely troubled when I heard these allegations for several reasons. 1) I attended this church for several years and was involved in ministry there as well. Even in that time frame there were multiple allegations about other similar sexual matters that came up and many people left the church over that. 2) I had children involved there as well but they were small at the time. 3) The fact that there was victim blaming going on absolutely boggles my mind. All the signs this girl portrayed pointed to possible sexual abuse but instead of recognizing that people double down to hold to their confirmation bias that this man "couldn't possibly be guilty". People don't like to be wrong when they've invested so much into a belief.

When I read the episode from Paul's sermon upon his return that Sunday i was sickened. If he truly was guilty (and he did plead guilty to lesser charge) and he fixed himself as the victim here, he deserves to have the full arm of the law extended.

I hope the adopted daughter gets the help she needs to work through this and come out healthy on the other side.

Re: “78-Year-Old Dan Ott Has Stolen More Than 1,000 Cars in His Life. And Left Plenty of Damage Along the Way

Caught himself one hell of a lucky break with that other Dan Ott taking the buckshot for him. This article was an excellent and entertaining read. Reminds me of some of the other articles about the Cleveland underworld, espicially the ones that chronicled the likes of Allie Calabrese, the snitch Anthony Delmonti, and other organized crime figures. Would be great if the Scene could produce more of these pieces.

Re: “Why Cleveland Radio Sucks, the True Story Behind 87.7 Cleveland Sound, and the Future of Radio Innovation

Cleveland's radio stations in the late 60s and 1970s made my childhood happy! My favorite was WIXY-1260, but I also listened to a station that was called G-98, and I always thought the 'ethnic' station WZAK was cool. I tried to learn languages listening to it lol Of course, "the home of the Buzzard" was de riguer to listen to, and I also dug the soul music stations. I don't remember their call letters at the moments but there were two as I recall. Nowadays, terrestial radio in any city sucks! It's all about the internet nowadays.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

Nurse10 has so obviously disclosed who she is....we should just look her screen name to see her picture....but need to do that....She was on FOX8 News tonight....Hmm....Let me remember the title of the article: Parents accused of defrauding Amherst schools out of thousands- Now that's the opinion of the U.S. Marshall's Division of Fugitives as well as the Lorain County Prosecutor's Office.

And here is a quote from nurse10

"Let's NOT even start getting into insurance freud that is a different article."

Funny how she first misspells FREUD for "Fraud"....I wonder what's behind that silly mistake? But to the bigger points, according to court documents her wonderful husband is a convicted felon (twice) who violated his probation and is now under an extended sentence. Isn't the judge a little tired of seeing his face come before him time and time again? some point you take the plunge and say, to heck with this Community Control.....let's go better yet to VERMIN CONTROL and put him in a place where the judge knows he can at least get a bit of respite from seeing him so much in his courtroom.

And Phil's convictions you may ask? Theft and Insurance FRAUD. a comment? Probably not.....and now YOU are being tagged by the U.S. Marshall's Office for deFRAUDING a PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM and intentionally damaging your autistic child for money? You are truly in need of more help than human beings know how to give! You should stay away from them.....I'm sure they wouldn't mind.

Re: “What Kind of Track Records Do Dan Gilbert and Quicken Loans Really Have? And Does Anyone Really Care?

I had an extremely bad experience with this company. As I talked to a mortgage guy on the phone, it became increasingly clear that this was a high-pressure sales operation ... not a professional mortgage brokerage. They charged me a fee, just to email me a good faith estimate of my loan costs. Then, they turned around said it "wasn't refundable." I would like to emphasize that NO one mentioned any fee -- refundable or non -- before they charged me. They said they needed a credit card number to verify former credit history, then charged me a $380 fee. Luckily, I was able to dispute the charge with the credit card company, and I got my money back.

I told them I didn't want to do business with them anymore, and the guy started arguing with me on the phone. He became extremely rude. I said goodbye for good. After that, I started getting multiple phone calls. One guy wouldn't even let me get in a word ... just kept talking over me like he didn't hear or something. I finally had to hang up on him.

There is no doubt in my mind that this company was a sleezy, high-pressure operation.

Now ... if any of you paid hacks wants to start criticizing my post, and insulting me for telling the truth ... help yourself. It will only show what kind of outfit Quicken really is. And as a matter of fact, it wouldn't bother me one little bit ... I think it's hillarious to read your insults on this post. When you insult people who have had a bad experience with Quicken, you are only showing everyone on the internet what kind of people you really are, and -- more importantly -- what kind of business Quicken Loans really is.

Re: “Is Being "Authentically Catholic" the Ultimate Credential for Teaching High School?

I think there is a lot that goes into the selection process for the teachers as well as the students. I'm not sure having a deep catholic heritage is always the deciding factor in the selections. However they do it though, they are doing a great job. These schools always do so well, maybe other schools in the area should model their process.

Re: “Some Think Sports Talk Radio in Cleveland Is Dying. Truth Is, It's Already Dead.

Just stumbled on this article doing some radio research today. Written back in September. Mr. McGraw you've got to be kidding.
Did you go to high school at Midpark with Rizzo or something? Seems like his loyal following is all from Berea. He, Munch, and most all of them make up a very poor lot in Cleveland sports talk radio. Ironically, we have first rate play-by-play and color commentators in all three sports, as well as pros like Mike Snyder and some of the other post game analysts. They are as good as any city in the country...just tune in to Pittsburgh, Detroit and Cincy and you will agree. I will grant that Rizzo can do a decent voice-only radio ad (sincere sounding hype artist phoney) but since we know him in Cleveland, those ads are unbearable. I used to turn the dial or push the button when any of them come on, but now I just turn it off and listen to music. Best habit I ever broke.

Re: “Father Under Fire: A Westlake Church Rallies Around its Pastor After Charges that He Sexually Abused His Adopted Daughter

The abuse may be the reason for her being troubled. Too often people look at the actions of a troubled child without checking the cause. Someone in this church needs to look at the pattern of behavior of this child. They raised the child since she was three!! They caused her problems. I hope justice prevails. And where is the mother? There is no way the mother did not suspect something because when a child begins to act up it shows that something is wrong.
