So this is simple unless you are a member of Clev city council, with one exception who knows better. The misrepresentations and lack of disclosure and the omission of significant information are substantial and constitute fraud therefore the contract should be easy to merely rip in pieces. So what is the big deal?
Not only did Peter Raskind walk of the street with more common sense than city hall, he also walked off the street with reportedly $7M after helping take National City down the tubes and all of the shareholders investment in the stock of the bank. So let's praise Raskind for his very common greed. Lance Buboe
Although revenue will drop from estate taxes, the elimination of the tax will probably encourage many residents to remain in greater Cleveland, and in Ohio. Historically, many who face large state inheritance taxes move to Florida and other tax free states to escape the tax. The result could be more businesses moving to Ohio and fewer houses for sale. Lots of communities could reduce operating costs by reducing the number of non essential departments and non essential people; how about eliminating all the studies and consultants. It is possible to examine bloated staffs and cut back. In Shaker we have a number of retired individuals on full pensions from our public schools who have been rehired and then qualify for additional pensions - which is an example of worse than non essential - and this may be happening in lots of city halls. What about the duplication of services from one community to the next within one county. And of course our new county governing board with all the new salaries to protect us from self interested county commissioners. None of our new protectors have any self interest. Incidentally, I am a progressive liberal, just not into financial waste. E. Henry Schoenberger
I have been to Taste twice in the last month. Both time were perfect. The Halabut and Grouper entres could not have been better, simple presentations but creative. the ceasar salad was not as heavy as most over anxious kitchens in cleveland, and was also excellent. I thought, condsidering the quality of the ingredients and the insight of the chef, along with the stunnig room - provided a terrific value for those of us who have seasoned "taste."
