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

My kids father and grandmother lived along the river, both have since dies of cancer. What is sad is the fact no one cares and keeps passing the buck, no one wants to take responsibility, no one wants to take responsibility. No one wants to team up and help, especially when people are dying,painfully, what a lack of care and responsibility.

Re: “Historic Karamu Theater Looks to Regroup After Layoffs and Financial Turmoil

Tony Sia will do well for Karamu House. However, he will need hordes of support from the community, alumni, new artists, and the arts community at large. He has my support and prayers. The "Mu" needs to be there for my grandchildren, and their children, and their children... May GOD be your strength. I only hope for the best. And by the way, a learning institution is parlimentary to the needs of our up and coming talent in every artistic discipline. Do what you do best Tony Sias. Work it and mske it work!

Re: “In Stitches: Tales from the Frontlines of Sustainable DIY Taxidermy

I took one of her classes and it was okay.

I felt like the class was a little big for this kind of intricate work (16 or so). She had 2 assistants which were extremely nice and helped the students. Because of the class size, Mickey only came by our table once in the beginning, then never again. She ended up staying with the other tables near the front. This is really unfortunate because I was hoping to learn more from her expertise, not from her previous students. Or at the very least, a combination of both. It just didn't feel very balanced.

I wanted to be able to ask more questions during the process, but never got the chance to. During her introduction, she was very encouraging about us asking questions, but then I never really saw her to be able to ask. It didn't make sense to have to chase after her while we were working on our own rabbits.

Overall, it is a fine thing to do on a weekend, but I was really hoping to learn more. She is obviously very passionate about what she does, I just wish she was equally passionate about teaching her students as she is about taxidermy. Maybe that just comes with more time and experience

Re: “Dead Run

I am Brazilian and to me this question is very clear: Claudia killed her husband in USA. She has to be charged there. Just it.

Re: “Murder at the Hippie House: As Ohio Fumbles Marijuana Legislation, a Benevolent Weed Operation Ends in Bloodshed

"But buying military-grade ordnance? Sure: easy and legal."

A) AR-15s are NOT "military-grade"
B) A straw purchase (Tia buying a gun for Corey), is not legal, and is in fact a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine for each instance.

But don't let your ignorance stop you from spouting off.

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

This article is from 2008, yet every now and then it goes around Facebook as if it's new. I really, really wish Scene would do a follow-up piece about the Superfund cleanup and whether it's made a difference. Even better, a short update at the beginning of THIS article would be nice.

Re: “Who the Hell Does Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish Think He Is?

Sam - don't delete my comments, too.… Thank you for this analysis. Please continue the investigation dropped by Cleveland. com into Gus Frangos of the quasi-governmental "Land Bank," and his relationship with his former boss, former Treasurer Jim Rokakis. Budish did shut down tax liens but won't go so far as to expose this criminal Greektown mafia.

Re: “Who the Hell Does Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish Think He Is?

I neglected to note that even in his first press conference AFTER the election, he refused to answer a direct question about his financial intentions about the sports facilities. Both before and after the election, he refused to answer the question. The media did nothing to force the answer out of him. Ever. Then he gave the money away. Up front, presumably in suitcases of unmarked $100 bills. It's unbelievable.

Re: “Who the Hell Does Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish Think He Is?

Barely a single word about the outrageous Budish $65 million swindle/gift to the Cavaliers and Indians almost immediately after taking office? Are you kidding me? Fitzgerald stood up to them and told them to pound salt, but they knew Budish was just around the corner and didn't sweat it.

Prior to the election, Budish refused to answer a single direct question about his financial intentions dealing with the sports multi-millionaires and billionaires. Flat-out refused. Now we see why.

This guy is like Jimmy Dimora, the only difference being 1,000 pounds and the hookers. Even that we can't be too sure of, perhaps there's hookers involved here, too. Seriously, what is the actual difference between then and now? The faces may have changed, the only difference is the facade.

Re: “Who the Hell Does Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish Think He Is?

As long as Budish skips along with a smile on his face and is not stupid enough to deviate from the daily script, he may be rewarded in a couple years with a golden ticket for a gubernatorial run. And as long as Budish isn't stupid enough to deviate from that campaign script -- he may be skipping down to Columbus with an even bigger smile on his face. The Best and the Brightest, indeed.

Re: “Does Cleveland Still Rock? Why Major Rock Bands Have Been Bypassing Northeast Ohio

1) Well put, Mark. Columbus is not even close to being a larger market than Cleveland. That's a typical delusion held by people from Columbus.

2) Paul McCartney's next tour is coming to Cleveland.

3) Clevelanders: Boycott shows in Columbus. Why would you want to go to that cultural void anyway?

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: “Black on Black Crime

4/15/16 so who are the major black contractors in Cleveland today? Black on Black Crime have made the situation worse. You are the epitome of Black on Black Crime! you tear down your build nothing in return. Was the law that governs the minority set-aside broken? NO!

Thanks for nothing! Now we have nothing! Sell out!

Re: “East Cleveland's Mayor Wants Cleveland to Annex His City. His Plan Isn't Going Well

What you failed to mention in this article is East Cleveland had came out of the State declared Fiscal Emergency while Eric Brewer was in office. The city was plunged back into the current condition by no other than Mayor Gary Norton shortly after him taking office. The same man that is now trying to hide his incompetence by trying to get Cleveland to annex East Cleveland. I wish he would just resign and save the tax payers of East Cleveland the cost of another recall. The citizens have attempted to recall him but the same shenanigans you refer to taking place now at the Board of Elections were taking place during the last recall attempt.
