Re: “RIP Ray Shepardson, Playhouse Square Revival Leader

I'm happy to say I knew Ray. I agree --- he was an industrious visionary; and a fine man. My wife and I will miss him.

Re: “Singer-songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield Offers a Track-by-track Analysis of Her New Album

It is great to read a songwriter delving into the art of making music.

More merry misadventures of the desperate Howard tern wannabes.

...no more ridiculous than the "Pawn Stars" and "Beach Boys" machines in the legal joints.

Re: “RIP Ray Shepardson, Playhouse Square Revival Leader

The bulldozers were literally ready to plow under Playhouse Square -- probably for some ridiculous "pet project" of a deep-pocketed slug with numerous political connections at City Hall.

It's not a good sign when the plaintiff going against you is the United States of America. If you want to avoid that, maybe avoid running an illegal gambling hall.

Re: “Dock Dicks: ODNR Still Mostly Silent on Edgewater Marina Project

I love no bid contracts. They always seem to work out so well for the general public; we never get screwed over, and it turns out that no one was ever getting kickbacks.

Of course, there's no sarcasm at all in the above sentences.

Re: “Hashtag: East Cleveland Public Library. Hashtag: Moving Forward

It's really amazing how awful politicians can be, and how one disgruntled person can ruin operations of an entire group. Hopefully they get everything sorted out soon, sounds like it will be the best solution for everyone involved.

Re: “Cleveland Thief Allegedly Steals $6,500 in Just 78 Seconds

78 seconds to get all those cards, and a heck of a lot longer going through the court system and respective punishments. So, were those 78 seconds worth it? I'm guessing not.

This guy sounds awesome. I like the way he thinks, so many great one-liners in what he said.

Re: “'The Raid 2' Takes the Action Film to Another Level

It may be one cool ride of Scarface-inspired violence, but the (promotional) photo looks like something from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

Re: “Dock Dicks: ODNR Still Mostly Silent on Edgewater Marina Project

So ODNR is living up to the author's description of them? Not sure I follow and how that changes this story?

Frankly if the largest body of water you had ever seen was a bath tub, it would still be obvious that these docks don't belong anywhere near this location (I've seen them). The people who made this decision better not be protected from the liability of what is obvious folley.

Re: “Dock Dicks: ODNR Still Mostly Silent on Edgewater Marina Project

Perhaps they're not inclined to answer questions from a guy that titles his article "Dock Dicks." Perhaps.

Re: “Dock Dicks: ODNR Still Mostly Silent on Edgewater Marina Project

The ODNR hacks only answer to the governor's office....they can't be bothered with anyone else, unless it is time to place more names on an enemies list.

I disagree, Ray Stineman. Allard is about all that's left in NE Ohio in the way of "Investigative Journalism" these days...

All I needed to see was the headline and I knew it was a Sam Allard article. Real professional, hack.

Re: “Dock Dicks: ODNR Still Mostly Silent on Edgewater Marina Project

So WHEN these boats become projectiles in the basin and torpedo boats not docked at the marina, who holds the liability? Was that discussed? I'm sure the contractor and architect will say the plan was approved by the state (and hence me as a tax payer), but can they be held liable?

Re: “Making Bars Better: A Brief List of Drinking Trends We Want More (or Less) of this Year

Sounds like you think a 1970's college bar with a big patio or beer garden would be perfect. It had most of your want list. The truth is that works in some neighborhoods and in others would die. Unfortunately owners of these businesses want to make money. That is why they are in business. So I doubt the revenue of Super Bowl Sunday, March Madness, a 200 person pub crawl would not excite them. It is easy money. Jazz clubs in this city with bars are empty other than two places. The key is not only how the bar can change but how to get people there. Many roads lead to Rome so your base concepts may happen.

Re: “Hashtag: East Cleveland Public Library. Hashtag: Moving Forward

Thank you for continuing to cover the political situation in East Cleveland. This is an important story that doesn't get enough in-depth coverage in the mainstream local press.
