Re: “Missouri Man Who Abducted and Raped 15-Year-Old Cleveland Teen Sentenced to 15 Years in Federal Prison

This poor family, and that poor girl. I hope they all can heal and have a happy future.

Re: “Steve Loomis Says He Won't Resign From the Cleveland Community Police Commission

My sympathies to the other Commission members, who presumably will have to try to work with this jackass at some point.

I don't think I could do it.

Re: “Why We Decorate for the Holidays and Fight the Dark

Um, well...yes. Right. This is another in a sporadic series of humorous columns. And you are a humorist. Stand-up with a keyboard. I understand that. And you went a little overboard and a little long, but you were doing fine.. Until...

Until you stopped going gently into the long night, and began to rage against the dying of the light, and weren't so funny anymore. But I have SAD, so I understand where you're coming from on that score, too.

Hell, yeah, December sucks. The prison door slams shut, even with all the twinkling lights, the glitter, the glitz, the tinsel. But if you are this over-wrought in bleak December, how in the hell do you make it through bitter, brittle January...let alone the tortures of February and the agonies of March?

Yes, the blue sky disappears, the sun hides and sulks behind those mean-looking clouds or a sheet of endless Cleveland Sky Gray, and the snow and cold kick us in the ass. But the light does not "eke" away...whatever the hell that is...it oozes away...a minute or two less of it every day...until it starts to come back by the same minute amount (get it?) in January and February.

The worst time is not the time of the Solstice...it is all of January. Daylight has lengthened, but not all that much...and we are into the coldest period of average temperatures for almost the entire month. January is the bottom of the abyss, before long slow climb to July begins once again.

Worse still, we have no joyous January holidays...unless you can do something colorful and sparkly with MLK Day...to brighten the corner where we are. But thanks for sharing.

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

I was going to buy in Medina or Summit county. My son plans to do the same. The best plan is to see where this thing is going first. My other son and brother are already there. This map is too small to see anything on my phone, and won't enlarge. Will research further.

Re: “City Council Excoriates Jackson Administration for Public Square Debacle

Sam - thank you for this coverage and for not deleting the comment by Mr. Puri. I trust you will also not delete my comment and link to further comment http://realneo.us/content/fantasyland

And, PLEASE - your adulation of Cummins is grossly misplaced. Cummins is a shady, no-good liar. He has destroyed community in his ward and will (Please dear GOD) be replaced in 2017, by someone who actually will be responsive to residents. There is a super-secret RTA plan for the West 25th St. corridor that only folks at Neighborhood Progress know about the details. Cummins is a buffoon making every effort to get political support from the folks who will benefit from this future plan.

Does he get drug tested? That letter sounds like he got loaded on meth then just hopped on his laptop.

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

To the clean energy clean energy fanatics. I say this. I support oil and gas threw and threw. That was how I have supported my family for 22 years. Happy to go to work everyday. Wasn't thought of as a JOB. Proud American. Because I knew that each and every American depended on me.
We have made our self dependent on our resources. Decaying waste. Awesome.
Go ahead and put food on the table for your kids with wind and no more oil or gas.
You will starve. Guaranteed.
Educate yourself on oil based products. And see if your ready to go back to living like a brainless cave man.
I didn't think so.
Unail then. You people depend on real people like roughnecks who put there life's on the line 18hrs. A day 7 days a week. Away from our families for long periods of time.
But yet talk down to as if we are criminals for doing our job.
Drill. Drill. Drill. For its going to be a cold winter people.
So keep asking why o why on alternative clean energy. I will tell you the answer. Ready?
We don't live in a life full of fairy people with dust. We are Real people that are dependent on our waste resources. What will happen if we quite using our resources at hand. Hmmmm tree hugger I'm just a dumb uneducated roughkneck. I don't know. Waste grows and grows and grows. Guess what? Your beautiful pure clean rivers are now rivers of nothing but oil. That's what you will end up with eventually. But keep saying no to oil

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

We as human beings. Have no rights anymore. Human slaves that work for the king. Sorry president. Just worded different so it's ok. We don't own our land we work so hard for all our lives. Go ahead and not pay land taxes for a few years and see where it takes you!
I guarantee it won't be yours. Or anything else for that matter.

We need to stand up to human slavery. I want better for my children.
This isn't the America that I have been told. Lies, lies, lies
LAND OF THE FREE. PLEASE,!
I pay in 42 k a year in taxes. Faithful to the oilfield and damn proud.
They take our jobs from us. Put us on unemployment. Then say I make to much to qualify for food stamps.
That is so American of them. If that's what we have become as Americans. Then I want no part of it.
Until we grow a backbone and stand up to our government as a nation concerned. Nothing will change. We are saying yes please master what else can I give up or sacrifice to make the USA better.
I feel our government is not looking out for there own. SICKENING !
But hey! Go America Go. Straight down the toilet bowl

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

40 yr. pipelines suck us into this g/o for yrs. and yrs. We have to go w/ renewables for the sake of our health. Look at what's going on with the environment.-droughts, floods etc. G/O are the richest corporations and will not give it up. People have to stand up and take it away. Join groups like CELDF to take back community rights!

Will someone please remind the FERC that Ohio is famous for RIVERS CATCHING FIRE FROM BEING SO POLLUTED? What makes them think this is a good idea?

Of course they are making tons of money on this or they would have changed the way they do things to keep up with the times

Re: “Steve Loomis Says He Won't Resign From the Cleveland Community Police Commission

Why don't they change the bylaws of the commission to require attendance? Something to the effect that any commissioner missing three meetings in a 12-month period is removed... Since Loomis won't be at the meeting to vote on it, and 10 out of 13 want him off, it easily will pass. As for the others, if they've missed more than three meetings in 12 months, their responsibility to the committee's mission and the other committee members should be questioned, so they all should agree to it.

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

i know of a couple that has had their properties taken ..not just once, but twice, talk about b.s...and wasn't offered nearly what they had invested both times. one home was near west branch reservoir, the other was off 59 near kent where they eventually put wal-mart in, funny how it never effects the ones pushing the issue.
