Re: “Chagrin Falls Nanny School Heads to Court in Sexual Abuse Cover-Up Case

My daughter just graduated from this "school" this past year and was not offered one job. When we went to look into the school they gave us a binder full of job opportunities available all over the country. When the time came to place the girls, there were only 3 available. I have real issues with both Bradford and his mother. Most certainly they are in it for the money only. He is not someone that the girls were comfortable with. Also, they don't interview the families that are looking for a nanny, which is a huge red flag. You would assume that would be their number one job after receiving a request for a nanny. If only we'd known that ahead of time. Also, the living quarters for the students are awful. At the time, the smoke detectors weren't even working. However, my daughter did get a nice job on her own and some of the knowledge she learned has been put to good use. I would NEVER recommend this place.

Comic books have shined a bright light on society, controversial issues and pop culture since the first pencil began its path on a sheet of paper. Amazing Stories, indeed.

Re: “New Name, New Theme, New Chef for Sunset Grille at Whiskey Island

the metro parks need to figure out how to let boaters access there three downtown restaurants.
55th st. is a gas dock that really isn't designed for pulling up, getting off and having lunch, Merwins is all tied up with docks for the rowing clubs, whiskey island is all private docs. kind of dumb to have water front places that boaters cannot access, from there boats.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

Anyone with a little common sense can see this is a clear cut case of elder abuse and corruption on the part of the judge and the lawyers. The daughter has several indictments against her based on her abusing her mother and yet the Judge is debating on giving the daughter $20,000 from the mother to help pay for the daughter's defense. Also, how can the judge appoint the attonery that represents the daughter be the mother's guardian? Shouldn't it at least be an impartial guardian? That is a complete conflict of interest. How has this even gotten to this point???? The authorties need to immediately investigate Judge Walther and the attorneys and do the right thing!!!! The mother needs to be with her sons and grandchildren were she will be safe, loved and cared for.

Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Manfred Mann's Earth Band was part of the original British Invasion. They produced countless hits and great music for close to 40 years. While I totally agree with all of the other bands mentioned in the article and in the comments above, Manfred Mann is highly deserving of the Cleveland honor.

Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Blue Oyster Cult is greatly underrated as a ground breaking band. Most know their over played radio anthems (Godzilla, The Reaper, Burnin for You) but if you delve deaper into their music you begin to understand the beauty of Blue Oyster Cult.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

The real criminals in this tragic greed stricken situation are the judges involved and the lawyers who have so much to gain! A high school drop out would come to the conclusion that this daughter and her husband set up this scheme to abduct a woman and then facilitate a divorce for only one reason, money! Declared incompetent and demented not only by multiple physicians but by the same probate court that then ignores every fact that supports the malicious and unspeakable acts of two criminals out to get money! The court appointed guardian's primary responsibility is to protect the victim. In this case not only he kept her away from the family who loved her, he made sure she remains a victim and live with the daughter!
This is a clear case of corruption and the FBI needs to step in and investigate the judge, the attorneys and the gaurdian with multiple indictments for each one of them!
What a shame!

Re: “Aragon Ballroom To Return as Banquet Center; Residents Fear It'll Become "The Next Moda"

I live a block and a half from this project. Very few of my neighbors are comparing it to Moda or La Copa.

We're worried about actual issues, not manufactured ones. We're worried about an occupancy of 800 people and a liquor license that will allow them, by state statute, to serve like it's a nightclub. This building sits about 12 feet from a home and a residential district. This article makes it seem as if it's going to be used for business meetings and weddings and parties. The owner already has stated that he plans to hold "events" there as well and he will be able to serve until 2:30 am if he chooses to amend his liquor license. Events at his other location, which is on Brookpark Road and has a large parking lot to accommodate his guests, have included concerts and wrestling matches. It's not difficult to imagine that if this location does not succeed as a party center, that it would be easy to turn it into a very large bar.

Residents also are concerned about where, exactly, 800 people are going to park. It's a one-mile round trip to and from the parking lot proposed for the valet cars. Does anyone honestly think that patrons who are waiting to get into a concert or party are going to wait in a line of 100-300 cars to drop off or pick up their cars? And what about the valets, dashing across W. 25th on foot to get the cars or return from dropping off the cars? The city's streets department - as of the last community meeting - had not been notified about the valet zone or about valets running across the street 2-3 blocks from the closest traffic signals.

And the Lincoln West parking lot, which has been offered as a poor solution to the parking issue, won't be available once construction starts on the school in the next two years. Where do all of those cars go then? No one - the councilman, the owner, the community development corporation - will answer that question BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER. There is no other place in the neighborhood to park that many cars.

And what about their garbage? A banquet hall that can hold 800 guests generates A LOT of garbage. There is no place for them to put dumpsters. The building takes up the entire property. There is a 12-foot-wide alley behind it to provide access for emergency vehicles. Where will the dumpsters go? My guess is that like the rest of this project, no one thought this through...

What about smokers? Thirty years ago, when the Aragon was open, you could smoke inside. Are there going to be 50-100 talking, shouting, laughing people hanging out on W. 25th Street or worse, the alley behind the building right next to a home, smoking at any given hour of the night?

And what about fire codes? There's one exit on the narrow alley, a single door on the side and doors in the front of the building. I can't imagine that those exits come CLOSE to meeting modern fire codes. Has anyone asked the Cleveland Fire Department about that?

I love Adam Stalder's response, that people who support the project don't show up to public meetings. Since when? Maybe there was no support at the public meetings because the people who will have to live with this project don't support it as proposed.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

This is a clear cut of elder abuse, fraud & criminal conduct by a disgruntled child with revenge as her motive. Throw in the corruption from the top to the bottom of the court system and it looks like this little can of worms may open a whole closet full of corruption.

Best wishes to the family. As one brother put it he has lost his mother and a sister. What a shame.

Watching our parents age is a very humbling and difficult scenario in the best of times. Have a parent stolen from you and a lifetime of savings and hard work being ripped from an entire family by blood sucking greed and what you have is a down right tragedy.

May the guilty reap what they've sown on judgement day.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

This is another tragic story of elder abuse and theft. The daughter had a motive at the very beginning to take all she could from her family. And one would have to questions why a Judge couldn't see through this whole story. I certainly hope that this is the beginning of an investigation of the Judge and Attorney's in Lorain County. It was documented by several Doctors that she is not capable of making decisions yet the story goes on. Shame on the Judicial system. That women belongs with all her family not just an evil daughter who at a point hated her Mother until she discovered a way in to take all she could. Can't wait to see the end results. My hope is that the daughter is punished to the fullest extent of the law and that the Mother is re-united with all her children and grandchildren.

Re: “Taking the Financial Temperature of the Possible Lakewood Hospital Closure

The article said the hospital had "36 million dollars of outstanding debt" in 1987, when it was transferred to the Lakewood Hospital Association (LHA), as reported by the Capital Improvement Project.

Q: What is the Capital Improvement Project?
Q: Is the LHA still in debt today,
Q: What caused the hospital to get into debt? Didn't their patients pay their bills? Did a lot of patients sue the hospital? (The Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF) says they want to close Lakewood Hospital because they are still losing money, in 2015 (28 years later.) Why are they still losing money?

The "Save Lakewood Hospital" group, says the Clinic is not losing money.
Q: Isn't the CCF a reputable organization? (Their motto is "World Class Service"). Are they telling the truth about their finances?

I want to help the "Save Lakewood Hospital" cause.

MY SUGGESTION: I think all past patients should come forward to save the hospital. The "Save Lakewood Hospital" group should ask former patients to contact them for information on how to help.

I want to write to the Lakewood City Council to "save" Lakewood Hospital, but I don't understand what is going on, and how the Clinic can cancel a binding lease, which is valid until 2026. I suspect something else is going on that the public is unaware of.

How many skeletons (literally) are in the closet of Lakewood Hospital that should be revealed to the public?

As a former CCF patient who has leg pain, motor loss, feels ill, and has edema in my abdomen and legs, I went to the Clinic’s main campus and was passed around from one doctor to another, and was never diagnosed in five years. I was left with trouble walking and lost my job, because I am unable to stand or walk too long.

Later I found out that I was never told of abnormal tests. My CCF doctor never told me my x-rays showed a bone had collapse in my right foot, or that I had "boggy edema" and "effusion," or that my MRI showed motor-axon loss.

By not telling me or treating me, the CCF broke medical laws by not following accepted "standards of care."

The CCF also did not reply to my complaint to the ombudsman, which was a violation of the Federal Medicare/Medicaid Law called "The Conditions of Participation" (which states hospitals must reply to and investigate complaints in order to receive Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements.)

How can the Clinic can get away with not following the "standards of care," and breaking Medicare/Medicaid law?

Some patients are even denied further care for making complaints, and this is against the law, also.

Did Lakewood Hospital treat its patients like the CCF main campus treated me?

Why aren't all former Lakewood hospital patients coming forward to save the hospital? Doesn't the fact that thousands of former patients are not rallying to save the hospital show what they really know about the hospital?

An investigation into CCF patient care, patient outcome, patient resolution of complaints, patients who were denied care, and patient satisfaction, are all issues that should be studied in relation to why the CCF wants to close Lakewood Hospital.

This investigation could result in a Pulitzer Prize!
