@Amber I'm going to add downloadable jpgs in a few minutes here. I know at least two of those panels are a bit of a strain even when enlarged. Stay tuned.
A comment from Roldo Baltimore:
"I wish Michael had mentioned the owner of that E.9th Street property that the County Commissioners bestowed such large sums of cash. The owner was Dick Jacobs, a man who took so much more than he gave to Cleveland, in my opinion.
Jacobs took much more than the corrupt County officials who some day presumably may spend a day or more in jail
The properties at E. 9th were white elephants and the Commissioners Hagan and Dimora who voted for the purchase must have known or should have known.
Adding insult to injury for all who live and pay taxes in Cuyahoga County, the Commissioner allowed in the sales contact a provision that honored Jacobs. It dictated that a metal plaque would be attached to whatever building eventually came to that corner. The plaque would say the following:
“In recognition of over 50 years of endeavor and achievement, the Board of Cuyahoga County Commissioners, on behalf of its citizens, gratefully acknowledges the significant contributions of Richard E. Jacobs.
“Mr. Jacobs has consistently and selflessly devoted his insight, skills, and resources to the development, redevelopment, and preservation of Downtown Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. This complex, which includes the historic Rotunda, symbolizes the legacy that Mr. Jacobs has established through his leadership in development and owning many of this County’s major commercial, retail, and recreational facilities.”
Now is that an insult to all of us.
If you would like to know the history of Dick Jacobs and how he screwed County taxpayers I suggest you go here:
Thanks, Roldo Bartimole
@Sifer: I fucking love your contributions to the comment sections here. We love healthy debate, and shit like that.
The top two boxes have been fixed to be more legible. Sorry 'bout that.
Duly noted, my mistake.
