Re: “After 1,200 Steel Jobs Disappeared in One Year, Lorain Pinches Pennies to Keep the City on Life Support

Justin 1, have you even road down Broadway in Lorain?
It is mostly empty buildings, some with window displays and nothing else.
And that micro brewer is not going in downtown, it is going in on Colorado Ave on the other side of the river on Kansas Ave, right at the end of the Henderson Bridge.

I live here and see it everyday, there is nothing here but booze and music parties down by the river in the summer and a movie theater that shows only junk and by the time you get out of the theater it is dark and people re afraid to walk to their cars!

Re: “PHOTO: Ohio State University Has Acquired a Military-Style Armored Truck

You dummies, its not called a MaxxPro, MaxxPro is the brand name.
The truck is called a MRAP for Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected.

Re: “Ohioans Discover Bedbug Solution

Ah, but does it kill the eggs?
If not, keep spending your money for more.
By the way, just about any spray that lists Permethrin as an ingredient will also kill the live bedbugs and other types of bugs and that can be bought 'now'.
Its the same stuff they use in Mosquito nets and on clothing (worn after it dries) and will last through several washings.

Re: “Derailed

Think were we'd be now if cities had not torn-out all the old street-car and rail lines from long ago. By now those lines would have had massive improvements and up-grades and the system or network would still be in-place, but the autos and trucks came into the picture and ridership fell off, so the killed the rails off.

Do a little site seeing on the Google Satellite maps around Cinci area, all the photos pop-up of the abandon planed rail lines and tunnels that were killed off during the 2nd world war, the need for steel and iron during the war.

Kind a step back in time, yet you have to wonder what it would be like today if it didn't die.
