Re: “Q Deal Citizen Opposition Gears Up for Voter Referendum

I'll be happy to add my signature to this. If they want us to drop 88 million as a city, they have to give us a whole lot more than what they're offering. A good business deal has to be fair for both sides.

Re: “A Little History of Brownie the Elf

I'm from Cleveland and this is the most embarrassing representative for a football team. Football is a masculine sport and teams are supposed to exude strength and power. How is a cute lil elf supposed to represent a football team? I can't believe these idiots in marketing. There is no CUTE in football and the Browns by their lousy play and embarrassing elf and uniforms is why they will never change their image as the joke of the NFL.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

Well, at least we see eye-to-eye on the stupidity of the use of "Hingetown"...and even SCENE is starting to agree...they made fun of it in their latest "Best of Cleveland" issue.

When nobody ever uses the "designated nomenclature"...look no further for examples than at at some of our biggest bridges and our's a stupid name. Hope Memorial, Veterans Memorial, and Progressive have never caught on or become commonly used. Neither will this one.

West 29th and Detroit will always be part of Ohio City, as it should be, regardless of how gentrified it becomes, and how many yupsters and hipsters are stacked into its skies like a game of Jenga.

Re: “Street Sweeping Returns to Cleveland

So now they will once again sweep twice a year? Instead of once a year or NEVER at all?

The city used to do their street cleaning in spring (April-May) or early summer (June), and then again in November, to get the leaves out of the way for the snowplows, and so the sewers wouldn't get clogged up with wet leaves. Sometimes, if the snow came early, they might wait until December. Some winters, they never came at all. This was the way it was a decade ago, and going back 25 years.

But NOW they come but ONCE a year, in summer...if they even come at all. And too many lazy jamokes still push their leaves into the street every fall, and leave them at the curb...mainly because they are still stupidly awaiting the coming of the leaf fairies. In late winter and spring, the same crap is STILL there. That's not the city's fault. Wake up, sheeple!

Why do city streets need more sweeping than ever? Because... the pothole crews leave the loose and excess patching material on the pavements, and sweep all that black crud to curbside. I usually end up having to dispose of that junk in the big black trash container.

But now I can eagerly wait for the city to do another of the jobs we all supposedly pay for, probably by July. Oh, the joys of living in Cleveland...

Re: “Street Sweeping Returns to Cleveland

Yes, finally. I live on the border of Shaker Square and Mt. Pleasant area and haven't seen this service in years. Now if they would only go back to flushing out the water hydrants too. I have one on my tree lawn that hasn't been flushed in a while. I hope this is done on a regular basis and not just one time and that's it for the next five years.

Re: “What Led to Councilman Brian Cummins' Last-Minute Flip-Flop on the Q Deal?

Cummins has been a puppet since the first redistricting of his ward - he works for the CleCabal. All of the west side representatives - McCormack aka Joe Cimperman , Zone aka Lee Fisher, Kelley aka Martin Sweeney especially hold the keys to the Cleveland Leadership Fund created by Forest City under Mike White. Basically, it is a PAC that guarantees they can hold on to their seats. Tony Brancatelli aka Jim Rokakis is also supported by this PAC - as he is the president of the "Land Bank." The Land Bank takes properties and wites out outstanding tax liens - priming real estate for distribution through the CDCs which are controlled by these council reps. Cummins is especially despicable for what he primed in Old Brooklyn…
