Re: “Kevin Young, Suspect Acquitted in 1990 Murder of Lisa Pruett, Has Died

Why does the Scene give bottom-dwelling dirtbag James Renner a platform for his alt-facts? Kevin Young was a cat-murdering, teen-girl assulting, fake bomb threat calling sociopath at best, and almost certainly a killer. Way to write an obit painting him as a victim while casting shade on others. Renner is out to line his own pockets. Sad.

Re: “FirstEnergy Will Sell or Close Both Ohio Nuclear Power Plants

Agreed with Brian that the Govt is definitely on the take, BUT natural gas fired plants are cleaner then coal, can be up and running reasonably quickly, and don't require huge subsidies like solar or wind.

Re Just The Facts above - - I would be very careful in expecting your response to elicit comfort. Invoking a government agency just doesnt' have the ring that it used to. If what you say is true on market competition then I say - God bless the free market - because my hope in having them close is avoiding a massive disaster.

Re: “Twenty Percent of Cleveland Public High School Students Attempted Suicide in 2015

This is an alarming statistic. But please get the facts straight. This is among high school students, not all CMSD students.

Again, a frightening statistic and an indicator of tough living conditions.

https://www.good.is/infographics/solar-pow…

It's not the ABILITY of solar and wind... it's that the government is bankrolled by fossil fuels, so the stories they publish, the propaganda they spread, and the laws put into place all make it hard for solar and wind to compete.

Why would energy companies want to move towards solar/wind? They, as well as the fossil companies, make a bagillian dollars using dirty fuels, and charging customers exorbitant amounts for them.

Don't drink the fossil Kool-Aid any longer... read for yourselves.

Re: “A: Everything. Q: What's Wrong with the Greater Cleveland Aquarium?

I was so excited to know that Cleveland was building an Aquarium. When the ticket prices came out, I was less than enthused. I visited the Aquarium in Atlanta Georgia, it was spectacular, and jaw dropping, I decided to wait to hear feedback from other visitors... I'm glad I did not go. If you charge a premium amount of money for something... make it worth people's while... They need to remember who the aquarium is for. A family of 4 or 6 could barely afford admission, let along eating and souvies...

Re: “FirstEnergy Will Sell or Close Both Ohio Nuclear Power Plants

Davis Besse is a licensed nuclear reactor in accordance with regulations and requirements established by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It is monitored very closely by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Based on that fact it is safe to operate. The basis for its possible closure is based on market competition from other forms of fuel such as natural gas. So don't confuse safety with the energy generation competitive market.

Re: “FirstEnergy Will Sell or Close Both Ohio Nuclear Power Plants

@ John - - yes, i feel for these workers, it sucks, we all will be displaced by some change eventually but that's called progress. Your comment makes me even more nervous - humans are just too prone to laziness, carelessness, and inattention. Now add to it paycheck woes and who knows what kind of error can happen. Look at all the trains that crash with qualified conductors. Sorry John, I disagree, shut them down, and lets get clean burning natural gas and other renewabales that when they go boom don't create Chernobyl. I'm happy to pay an extra $10 per mos to know I'm not living between two Kennedy era nuclear disasters waiting to happen.

Re: “FirstEnergy Will Sell or Close Both Ohio Nuclear Power Plants

I worked at Perry for 27 years. Aside from the occasional screwballs in upper management, the general workforce are good hard working people that care about nuclear safety and their community. I feel sorry for them, because now in addition to the daily pressure of keeping the plant running in legal compliance they now have to worry about losing their jobs.
Close all the coal fired and nuclear power plants and you will finally see what a failure solar and windmill technology is. Even if you loaded up all the streets in America with solar panels they still would not produce enough to power the nation.

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

It always amazes me how much clout the team owner robber barons have over elected officials. It's even more amazing to watch the voters continue to elect these people and to vote for their tax increases.

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

Whenever I read journalistic outrage over the Trump Administration's invocation of "alternative facts," I have to assume the reporters in question have spent no time in Northeast Ohio, where "alternative facts, couched in a fog of self-serving bullshit, and served with a heaping teaspoonful of arrogance and thuggish behavior, have been The Way Things Are Done (and largely by the same group of sociopaths) in Cuyahoga County since at least the peak of the Mike White kleptocracy...We are desperately in need of a disruptive campaign for Mayor...These oligarchs have got to be stopped...

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

The minute I see Fred Nance's name I go "The public is going to get screwed." Remember how he negotiated the city's deal with the Browns and then turned around and went to work for the Browns almost immediately?
