Re: “Fairmount Owner Jake Orosz Buys La Cave du Vin on Coventry

Did your mommy,Jayne Sestak, purchase this "speciality drink" location for you? Just like she did with "The Fairmount?" The title of the article should actually read "Drug and alcohol psychologist purchases another bar for her arrogant son."

Re: “Cleveland Puppy Mill Operators Plead Guilty to Animal Neglect, Cruelty

Please, all of you protest this judge all over town! Go to his house, the courthouse, everywhere! If you tell me his name I will protest online. We see that after YEARS of hard work to get a law passed it doesn't matter, judges just don't care to follow any law themselves. If this judge isn't taken out now then this will continue and it will be that no one even bothers with charging these evil monsters. Why waste time filing charges for nothing. To me the judge is every bit as guilty as these evil animal abusers.

Re: “'Let It Be' Star Talks About the Challenges of Portraying a Beatles Reunion

Broadway was also home to Beatlemania from May 1977 to October 1979.....which spawned an original cast album, movie and world tour (Beatlemania Bus and Truck Tour). And due to the ticket demand during the run in the Big Apple, "permanent" shows were opened in a number of cities.

Re: “RTA Plan: Have Buses on Public Square by March 6

Frank Jackson and pet puppy Joe Calabrese were stupid to try and play the "Cleveland Way" with the Feds......as if arrogantly rewriting an agreement was being done with a local company that cannot fight city hall if it wants future public work.

Re: “Listen: Radio Ad Slamming Mayor Frank Jackson Hits Airwaves

The job market has been a joke for a very long time, and this clown has been in office for over a decade. Then slaps his own people in the face by quietly making the minimum wage increase "problem" go away. An afterwards, tells everyone it "should be decided at the state level." You, sir, are a cowardpeople are starving!
Fact: Cleveland's ranked dead last in the nation for median annual income. Oh, I'm sorry, we are tied with a small town in Florida (Hialeah). And the population continues to decrease.
No incentive to bring business here or local small business tax incentives for your 12 year reign ? HA! Just the same old-hat nonsense of saying "It is what it is."

Re: “Cleveland Puppy Mill Operators Plead Guilty to Animal Neglect, Cruelty

After everything they've done to these poor puppies and the families that adopted them, they got a slap on the wrist. I adopted one of the puppies, who had fleas, roundworms, giardia, coccidia, and an upper respiratory infection. (My other dogs caught the parasites.) My puppy was treated for months. Blood work done a week ago indicates that he's still unwell. Dan and Raven tampered with official veterinary records, typed up fake documents, lied about my puppy being examined (and being given a clean bill of health) by a licensed vet, and gave me the the wrong puppy. I signed a contract on 10/22/16 (the day the microchip was implanted), which had my puppy's microchip number and put down a $200 deposit, which had the name the "rescue" gave to my puppy. He was also listed as "litter c, blue collar". My puppy was scanned and has a different microchip number. According to VIP Petcare, which runs the vaccination clinics at Pet Supplies Plus, where the microchip was implanted, I have "litter c, black collar." I have emails from VIP Petcare confirming a full examination was not done/clean bill of health was not given. In fact, full examinations at Pet Supplies Plus stores are only offered in Northern/Southern California. Raven and Dan insisted I was incorrect, even when my vet called VIP Petcare, after me. (I have FB messages where they continue to lie that my dog was examined and healthy, until I sent the emails.) Dan and Raven would not let me pick up my puppy until 10/29/16...in that week, they gave my puppy to someone else. On 10/25/16, Raven posted that "all puppies had been adopted, were in their new homes, vet checked, with a clean bill of health."--something along those lines. Dan and Raven already had several new litters of puppies, but my puppy was still there. The puppies never had access to water. They were being fed Pro Pac Adult dog food. I asked Dan how much food my puppy was fed daily..he didn't know. On 10/29/16, a beagle puppy was stuck in between the wall and the box the puppies were being kept in. A potential adopter heard a cry and found the puppy..she pulled it out. Dan didn't even check to see if the puppy was injured. Dan originally gave me paperwork for the wrong puppy. (A tan puppy..a completely different breed.) Dan said, "He was dewormed, so expect diarrhea." (Which puppies can have diarrhea due to deworming, change in environment, and switching food.) My sister is a vet tech and we were speaking to our vet. We went to get the puppy's correct papers on 11/6/16. (We already knew what was going on and that it was not a legitimate rescue. We had called Dan several times on 10/30 and left voice mails. His phone was then disconnected. I had to send a FB message. I asked if any puppies were sick. They told me that all puppies were "healthy, happy, and rambunctious.") Dan dewormed my puppy and gave us the microchip documentation. He was supposed to give us ALL of the paperwork, but he said he couldn't find it. On top on the microchip documentation, vaccine labels were added next to "official proof of vaccination", which was signed by a licensed vet. VIP Petcare said that my puppy did NOT receive vaccinations at Pet Supplies Plus, only a microchip--that's what the "official proof of vaccination" refers to. VIP Petcare said someone added the labels to the microchip documentation. I kept questioning Raven and Dan, regarding the vaccines. They then said he was vaccinated on 10/29/16...why would they add labels to official veterinary documents signed by a vet, making it appear as if the vet gave the vaccines? I was given an "intake form" (which again, has the name the rescue gave my puppy and the microchip number), that states my puppy was given a series of vaccines, including Rabies, that are not age appropriate--or weren't at the time. I sent a FB message asking for the Rabies certificate and Id tag. I told Dan that Rabies vaccines have to be administered by a licensed vet--and that the vet gives a certificate and ID tag. At that time, Dan said that it was a "general form" and those vaccines were not given. Raven and Dan told me that they would pay for my puppy's vet bills in a FB message. (Our vet said if the dewormer didn't work, to bring the puppy and our older dogs in. Our other dogs were also sick by this time.) At first, Dan said that our older dogs got the puppy sick. He claimed that I never informed him that my puppy had diarrhea. Dan said, "you wouldn't be complaining about vet bills if you would have communicated with us." Raven told me she had fecal tests. I said, "How would I not be complaining about vet bills? Even if you did a fecal test, I would still have to take my puppy to the vet to have the test confirmed and have him treated. You're not able to diagnose and treat a dog. You're not a veterinarian. I would be spending the same amount of money." I was in contact with them the entire time. (Even when they didn't respond. Now I'm blocked.) Dan said he would only pay one bill--the $41 bill..I did not accept. Including the treatment of all dogs, I've spent about $2000. The puppy is going to the vet tomorrow for more tests. This has been going on for years. People have been trying to stop them..this won't stop them. Within the past week, Dan was selling dogs online. Dan has another rescue set up on FB under a different name. He has several aliases online. Raven is now selling dog toys out of her house. I was contacting the APL in November 2016. I called several times and sent a message through FB. I believe I contacted them through their website too. I didn't get a phone call until I left a review on their FB page, which was January 9th, 2017. I missed the call and it took 10 days to get a return phone call. I couldn't pick up, because adopters were trying to getting a story aired. I did not speak to anyone from the APL until January 31, 2017. The phone call was 7 minutes long. 2 minutes of the phone call, I was trying to find the date my puppy was diagnosed with coccidia. I have so much paperwork and records, I couldn't find it quickly. I was supposed to be giving my statement to the APL..I didn't get to do that. The officer told me that he had to go on calls and to email him the confirmation that my puppy was positive for coccidia. (The officer didn't even give me his correct email address. I had him repeat it twice. I had to contact the APL to get his email address.) I feel Dan and Raven could have been stopped sooner. The conditions went from bad to worse. Puppies ranged from having minor -serious illnesses to parvo and distemper and dying. I'm sure there are more sick dogs than we're aware of. How many puppies died before being adopted? We'll never know. Dan and Raven took advantage of animal lovers. As for me, I had to put 2 of my elderly dogs that were sick to sleep within 3 weeks of each other...it was a horrible time. My dogs were depressed and I was looking to adopt a dog that needed a home. Raven told me that my puppy was from an "accidental litter in the area". Turns out, they got him from Northern Kentucky. Both Raven and Dan listened to my story, about losing my two dogs, that I had autoimmune diseases, and back surgeries. They knowingly handed me a dog with zoonotic diseases. My immune system is weaker than the average persons, which makes it easier for me to catch diseases..and would make me very sick. Dan and Raven didn't care, as long as they got their money. Dan and Raven don't care about animals..it's an easy way for them to make money, instead of getting a real job. They should be in jail. This "sentence" won't teach them anything.

Re: “Here's Jason Whitlock Comparing LeBron James to Donald Trump

yup, just do like the Donald did, borrow, a million from your daddy, and oh yea, I forgot, Lebron's daddy was where? and then don't pay taxes for 18 years, year that's hard work. Ridiculous, this guy has lost his mind and if your case is your that your height of 6'8" that makes you what you are, then where's all the other super star 6'8' people. And if you have an opinion, that's great! Don't kill me for mine.
