Re: “The feds do their best to conceal a toxic horror lurking beneath Elyria

I grew up on the East side of Lorain. Ohio street to be exact. There many spring and summer mornings we would wake up covered with black graphite from the steel plant. Cars were washed every day to keep it at bay, Walk outside barefoot and you feet turned black. Swimming pool bottom was covered with it. Thenas kids we used to play at the old Lorain city dump at the end of Root road off Colorado. City own that property. Constantly there was stuff oozing from the ground. In the winter time huge areas of water wiuld never freeze along the river. And the carp we used to catch had tumors growing in them the size of golfballs. Most of the people that grew up in and around that area are either dead or dying. My mother, brother and sister all died of cancer. Father and other both have cancer. I am 53, have degenerative arthritis through my body. There were 8 of us that were thick as theives as kids. Of the 8 3 are dead and the rest have some dibilitating desease. Who wants to do a story about that?? Nobody. Why? We are nobodies. Who can we get to support us and go after these companies? Who wants to take our case and fight for the little people??

Almost every single person living on the midway mall side of ford road has been diagnosed with some kind of cancer and most all of them are already dead.

We just moved to Ford Road. Where exactly on Ford Road is this? Our realtor never mentioned this.

Re: “The 40 Essential Cleveland Restaurants

Really....every great chef has gone through Moxie ??? Yet no mention of Giovanni's ?? Guess who was a chef at Giovannis ? Well one name that comes to mind that you might recognize... (amongst several great chefs that got their start there) you may have heard of Michael Symon perhaps ??? Yeah...thought so.
Shame shame Mr. Trattner for excluding this still great Cleveland restaurant from this compilation.

Re: “How the Indians Were Built Through a Series of Nifty Trades

This sounds a lot like what John Hart did under Dick Jacobs...which put the Tribe on top during much of the 90s. I'll definitely move over and say I was wrong about the Dolans if the Indians turn into a team like that again...and I'll hope they keep the front office together to make it a dynasty. The Browns could definitely benefit from some ownership trust and stability and front office talent...they've never had either since their reincarnation.

Re: “East Cleveland Councilman Nathaniel Martin on his City's Uncertain Future

Nathaniel Martin has held his office more than twice as long as Norton. Seems we should be asking what has HE done to keep the city from devolving to its current state. Also, before Norton suggested residents look into merging with the city of Cleveland, Marting repeatedly stated in he media that we should study it. Now that Norton is saying the same thing, Martin wants to recall him. We should be questioning Martin's motives. They don't seem to be about serving the needs of his constituents.

Re: “The feds do their best to conceal a toxic horror lurking beneath Elyria

I grew up on Ford Road, late 50's , early 6O's-my family owned a house in a cluster about 1/5th of a mile from the dump site. My mother lived there when she was carrying me; I was born with a cleft palate. There's no one else in my family that has any birth defects-my mother carried all her prior children elsewhere. I'm it for Ford Road. Really makes me think.......

Re: “Inside the Investigation that Brought Down a West Sixth Street Cocaine Dealer

well I don't know how but I read the indictment in the scene days before I was arrested and served. I read this article before I got my motion of discovery and 80% of it is the same of what I have . I don't know DB's sources of information?, I don't think its gossip facebook etc. guess its all public record. what gets to me is the 20% that is wrong with it all. the 20% the writer has wrong the 20% the feds have wrong. the 100%that will have me hammered to the cross because of society views of ethics and morality. if you asked someone about me, I help the old lady across the street, give you the shirt off my back ..we are all nobodies just trying to feed the babies { the" difference" between me and you } guilty till proven innocent. so if no one ever told you the dope game here goes. you get rich but what is rich? someone kills you or you go to jail or you go to jail and die. if you live, you get out to nothing because if they didn't take it everyone else feeds off what's left. the only thing you do is hurt the ones you love, if there still there. if you run you can only run for so long then you have to pay the piper anyway in the end .The days of the real stand up guys are long gone. I was not a virgin in this but was pimped played and whored never the less all because I wanted to play. I'm old and dying but show no pity this is for my kids and family on the 1% that make it though this I will see you all again. if I don't I love you all vary much and I am sorry for leaving you. know this dope is for dummies. think more of yourself. don't play the game. uncle "P"

Re: “Midwife Crisis

Wow, this is horrible. Dr. Trump is a family practice physician, and she used to be an OBGYN as well. She delivered my child at Barberton Hospital several years ago, and my child has brain damage, and I've often wondered if it was due to the baby being breach, and she didn't do a c-section but had me lay on my side until the baby turned, and then continued with vaginal delivery. I wondered if it was in the birth canal too long, but don't know for sure. Anyway, I saw this article today and have many questions now. I wasn't aware of her having any malpractice cases against her. That said, this particular case seems to be one of bad judgement on the midwife's part. But Dr. Trump should have read the ultrasound report, and promptly informed the mother of the baby being large, and potential for delivery complications. I know from experience that while Dr. Trump seems kind and well intentioned, she is extremely dismissive of health concerns and lacks follow up with patients, including providing test results. When I've had tests done, they say they'll call with results, and I usually have to call the office several times and ask for the results, and am usually told "The doctor hasn't read the results yet. I'll send her a message to ask her to." The patients have to constantly remind her to do this aspect of her job.

Re: “Inside the Investigation that Brought Down a West Sixth Street Cocaine Dealer

No shortage of rumors? Exactly because of articles like this. No where in the indictment or any of the court records is half of the information you are allegedly reporting happened. Please do yourself a favor and report real facts and not stories that are made up of gossip, facebook posts and assumptions.

Re: “Inside the Investigation that Brought Down a West Sixth Street Cocaine Dealer

So, is this the formula the all-white, all-boys club at Scene thinks is effective for writing cover stories? Here, Doug, go through this stack of court records and write a story summarizing them. BIG YAWN! How many more of these drug dealer bust profiles are you going to subject us to? This is barley recognizable as journalism. And what did we learn from this story, really? Anything of substance. Scene, sadly, is very short on substance. I wonder if managing editor Eric Sandy is taking anti-depressants. A cover story like this is flat out lame and boring....and haven't we read a variation of this at least a half-dozen times already?

Another terribly disappointing effort by Doug Brown. I wouldn't hire him at this point. He doesn't know how to tell a story.

Re: “Inside the Investigation that Brought Down a West Sixth Street Cocaine Dealer

While some of the content in this article is true alot of it is fabricated. How are you going to report that someone is an informant when you have no documented proof and the ones that did make buys, etc for this investigation why aren't their names listed? You are saying that someone wore a wire and putting their safety at risk when you have no proof and if it was true you would not be able to disclose the information. Please get your facts straight before you release articles and stop reporting neighborhood gossip.

Re: “Surviving St. Pat's in Cleveland

Stacy...were you the drunked-up skank who fell down in front of my car--trying to pick up the money you dropped while running across Rocky River Drive about 9:15 PM? I KNEW that was you!

Even in all that green face paint and all those green beads, you still looked like the bitchy whore that you are. I laughed my ass off at you and all your silly friends. Did you puke all over yourselves at McIntyre's? Happy hangovers, bitchez!
