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

Let me reiterate something to you people who obviously never worked in the food and beverage industry. If linecooks are paid more than $12 an hour your menu prices increase and your booze increase. We all know that the same people bitching about the pay in their comments are the same people who throw a fit when their beloved alcoholic drink cost $0.50 more than it did 4 years ago!!

And to CJ from the top comments: you're an ignorant ssshole who has no clue how a restaurant runs!!

Monday morning's active shooter alert at Ohio State makes insignificant all the post-game and playoff chatter.

Wasn't East Cleveland going to become part of Cleveland? Their corruption is astounding!

Re: “Cleveland City Council *Introduces* Legislation Regulating Storefront Tax Preparers

I worked in a tax office for two seasons.
I think there are already laws on the books regarding preparer certification and the loans.
Whether they are being enforced is a different question...

Re: “East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton Fined $114,100 by Ohio Elections Commission

It is impossible to feel sorry for the residents -- since they have willingly OK'd the juvenile silliness and egotistical foolishness through the ballot box....year upon year upon year.

Re: “"You'll Be a Legend": Beanie Wells Talks OSU/Michigan — The A to Z Podcast With Andre Knott and Zac Jackson

As long as Ohio State remains in the second playoff spot on Tuesday (November 29), the chance for a trap door to open on Selection Day (December 4) will be nil. If Clemson somehow jumps the Buckeyes -- results from Championship Saturday will suddenly become real important.

Definitely protest, but not this way. A harbinger of things to come in President elect Trumpets new regime with the First Lady Gold-digger.

The worst movie in 2016. After watching the movie, I was furious at my decision to opt for this movie. Irritating.

Re: “Two Years Later, Tamir Rice's Family Still Awaits Justice

It's a shame that the CPD were looking for a child to shoot that day. It's all Trump's fault.

Re: “Dick Goddard's Final Forecast: Tears and Jokes

National surveys by Herb Altman Research have twice named him as the most popular local television weatherperson in America. He also holds the Guinness World Record as the longest-serving meteorologist...55 years...and served as the Browns statistician for more than four decades. But his work with the "four-foots" and being a vice for voiceless and defenseless animals, will be his legacy.

Will every day in Cleveland now be sunny and mild? Or will it be gray, cold, and lousy? Without Dick Goddard's forecasts on the tube, a lot of people will think there IS no weather!

Re: “Eastern European Food, Beer and Cheer Make Hansa a Hit

We've been there a few times already. I highly recommend for a change of pace atmosphere with the same patronage, environment, beer and cheer that Ohio city is known for. So good! Prost!

Re: “Two Years Later, Tamir Rice's Family Still Awaits Justice

Samaria Rice called Tamir her "big gentle giant" who liked watching "Clifford the Big Red Dog," playing with Legos and filling in his coloring books.

Tamir also, rather obviously, enjoyed pointing a realistic looking toy handgun, made even more so by removal of its orange safety tip, at total strangers enjoying their day in a public access park. And when he was confronted by police officers carrying real guns, responding to a 911 distress call from one of those strangers, he didnt raise his hands or even stand stock still, but instead grabbed at the gun tucked into the waistband of his trousers.

Basically, he committed suicide-by-cop, and in so doing, enriched his surviving family members to the tune of 6 million Cleveland taxpayer dollars.

And yet his mother, who didnt exactly do a bang-up job of raising or teaching Tamir anything of importance, especially given her own experience and that of Tamirs live-in baby daddy as police-arrested felons, continues to excoriate the officers involved and Cleveland itself, because those cops performed their jobs adequately, given all the information they had at hand and that they were too close to him when they confronted him. That was Officer Garmbacks fault; he failed to take into account that the surface of the park was grass, covered with partially melted snow, so that when he hit the brakes at a safe distance away, the car skidded forward to Tamirs immediate vicinity.

And, by the way, speculation by the 911 caller concerning Tamirs possible age and the nature of his weapon, was not and is not information. After all, kids can and do kill, occasionally accidentally, and the gun could easily have been a real one, given its appearance. Plus the fact that many young men in Tamirs apparent age range do carry real, if not exactly legally obtained, firearms. Remember: the autopsy determined that he was 5 9 tall and weighed 195 lbs, leading the veteran officer, Frank Garmback, to identify him to dispatch immediately after the shooting as a male in his mid 20s and to then walk over and kick the gun away from Tamirs side.

And, of course, even though there is no evidence either way for it, Tamirs mother and others of her ilk have raised the specter of racism in his chosen decision to suicide, because the police officers are pale and Tamir wasnt. Remember, just because some rabble-rousers trumpet racist sloganeering, doesnt mean there is any involved.

Re: “Contest Announcement: Design a New Name/Logo For the Cleveland Baseball Team

Don't touch a thing except double the size of the greatest, most endearing, coolest logo in sports.
Divert the energy of this exercise in futility toward making it a safer world.

Re: “Sounds Like the Browns Career Fair Was a Very Browns Event Indeed

ESPN's Mike Golic gloatingly gave the formula on how to gain meaningful employment with a pro sports team. During a couple segments on Mike and Mike, he bragged about his daughter quickly going from college graduation to a job with the Browns. If your dad is a former pro football player with a national sports media job -- that thin resume is pure gold. Everyone else.....get in the line for prospective ushers and ticker takers.

Gosh, you pay $12-$14 an hour, only to your "best" people after several years and you can't find good people? People aren't lining up for your crap job? What a surprise!
