Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Stole All the Missing Scene Boxes, Citing Safety Concerns

Apparently, Joe Marinucci's hot air also blows large heavy metallic boxes.

Maybe DCA is looking into use of Scene boxes as alternative housing for the homeless?

Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Stole All the Missing Scene Boxes, Citing Safety Concerns

This morning at 11:30, I was biking down Herman Avenue (just east of W. 65th) when I passed a yellow DCA pickup headed westbound with several Scene boxes in the back. Don't know what they were doing in this neck of the woods.

Re: “Cleveland Welcomes Dozens of New U.S. Citizens in Naturalization Ceremony

My grandfather Albert Joseph Bialek came to the United States from Poland {Galicia} in 1910. Per the Ellis Island website he boarded the ship Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse in Bremen, Germany {formerly Prussia}. He had just completed his service in the Austrian Army. Poland at that time was divided into three spheres of influence by Austria, Prussia and Russia. Upon being
discharged he returned to his fathers farm. Officers from the Austrian Army made an attempt to reenlist him but tradition dictated that he could remain at home so long as he was sorely needed on the farm. Immediately after the officers departed Alberts father gave him his brothers travel documents and instructed him to immigrate to the United States. His father
knew that war was coming and he didnt want to lose his son to it. It took me longer to locate my grandfather on the passenger list because I had forgotten he was traveling under the name Jan and not Albert. Upon arriving at Ellis Island Albert was directed to meet with an Inspector who proceeded to ask him a series of questions. Looking at Alberts papers the Inspector pronounced his last name {phonetically} as BIE-AA-LE-K to which Albert earnestly objected by stating his last name as BEE-AA-W-E-K. In Polish the L is pronounced as a W. After several go rounds with Albert over the correct pronunciation of his last name the frustrated Inspector
finally demanded that the name be pronounced BIE-AA-LE-K {or youre getting back on that boat that brought you here} to which Albert fully complied with the new pronunciation of his last name. Given the fact that Albert entered the United States under the name Jan Bialek and later burned his immigration papers it is evident he was by definition a illegal immigrant. He went on to become a very hard-working brick mason and law-abiding citizen raising 12 children with the help of his Polish wife Mary {nee Mazan} and the rest {as they say} is history.
Just as Cleveland {Ohio} is a city of neighborhoods so is the United States a country of immigrants. In fact all the major cities of America {at one time} served as incubators for immigrants to not only become accustomed to the ways of this country but also to intermingle with each other {often prohibited in their native homeland}. It's a shame that the inner cities were handed over
to the absentee landlords following World War ll. Just imagine how much stronger and united our country might have been had this unofficial tradition continued. Gentrification is not the answer. Preventing immigration is notthe solution. Intense vetting is acceptable during these challenging times but to unfairly deny one person access to the United States makes us all orphans again. As a popular song goes: "let me in immigration man.

Re: “Contest Announcement: Design a New Name/Logo For the Cleveland Baseball Team

Confining an entire race of people within the context of what constitutes a team mascot is not only wrong, but is not American. Why not consult the leaders of whats left of the tribal nations to vote.

I'm glad you found the culprit and this will be made right. Scene is one of the iconic Cleveland publications that I try always to get a copy of when I'm in town.

I'm glad the DCA is concerned about my safety. I might trip over some criticism while walking downtown.

Re: “Brew Garden Strongsville

Food is ok, standard american choices, quality was average. Service at this location, aside from our waitress Maddie, was HORRIBLE! We were quoted a 45 min wait, but instead stood unattended in the lobby entry for over an hour. Everyone who came in before and after us, was seated, while the terrible blonde hostess just kept saying i'm sorry no one is leaving, you just have to wait. All she did was play with and reference her touch screen contraption, and basically could not make a human choice, decision or action without it. The hostess staff never asked how we were while waiting as long as we did, nor did they make any effort in this enormous location to creatively come up with seating, putting tables together for the 6 of us - nothing. After over an hour, we prompted the hostess staff to split us up at booths we saw empty out, to avoid any further wait. The young staff was running around with one another joking, laughing, while customers just waited and looked on. They seemed to be having fun. The manager even socialized with the hostess staff, and frequently passed and just looked onto the waiting group of customer. Not sure he cared. Never a comment from him either during the hour plus wait. If you have long waits, tend to the people waiting a little - check in, direct them to the bar, ask if they need anything. Without us, your customers, you won't have paychecks - would be in your best interest as a service provider, to at a minimum, satisfy us, your customers. A table opened within minutes of us asking to be split up. You think the intelligent hostess, or her uninteractive manager would have come to move us there, NOPE - they were seating the next group. Work on you staff Brew Garden. I know they are young 20 somethings, but they are the face of your business, especially the hostess staff at the front door, and the management. Ask them to act like humans with brains, whose job is to service and please the other humans who walk in the door, and not just come to work to hang out with other staff, have fun and depend entirely on their electronic contraptions to tell them what to do next. I doubt I'll ever go back to this location. We live in a foody town with tons of amazing choices with true food quality and service. This is nowhere near a fit in that statement. To Maddie, the waitress, thank you for being the only one who made things happen and actually got us into a large booth together before our food was served.

Re: “Scene Announces Winners in #RedesigntheTribe Contest

Psychotic? And you're accusing ME of name-calling? And you can't even use ONE "anonymous" name or bother to register at this site with a legitimate username?

You can keep using as many "anonymous" handles as you wish, but that appears to be YOUR REAL NAME in the first sentence of this story. You won a major award in a major contest, so you are now no longer some nameless graphic artist.

A little heads-up: Cleveland is not New York or Chicago. Cleveland is a fairly small town. Business and social circles overlap to a degree that they do not in bigger places. If you continue to act like an asshat on this site, the word (and your name) will surely get around. And reputation plays a large role in your business.

So you need to chill, keep calm, step away from the keyboard, and go buy a six-pack of craft beet with that twenty bucks. Call up all your friends and give each of them a beer.You've earned it. You're a legend in your own mind. And keep being proud...be very, very proud.
