CONGRESSWOMAN MARCIA FUDGE
If those had been PD boxes, would their attorneys be all over the DCA like flies on dogshit? Damn betcha!
Apparently, this is an old tactic, as you have clearly shown by mentioning the1985 and 1994 incidents. Time to lawyer up and give DCA the ass-kicking they deserve...punitive and compensatory damages!
Keep up the good work, keep covering the "real" news that the mainstream outlets ignore, get some more weekly drop-off points on the Far West Side, and pay no attention to the asswipes behind the curtain, like the anonymous troll above.

Has Scene advocated re-opening Public Square to bus traffic? I haven't checked, but my guess is "yes". That would upset our illustrious mayor no end.
Um....they're fucking ugly and are used a toilets by homeless folks and drunks. Maintain your shit before you call other people out for trying to help you do it. Scene - get your shit together. Cover real news and get over yourself.
You folks need to make a careful inspection of the returned boxes.
If, as the DCA claims, all 26 boxes "had been knocked over by wind or by sidewalk plows", then each and every box would be damaged as a result. Each box would would show signs of recent scrapes, dents, scratches, broken widow panes and paint damage (particularly the boxes that had been hit by the sidewalk plows).
If the boxes are returned to you in pristine condition, lacking any recent damage, I'd say that's prima facie evidence that the DCA is certainly lying about why they grabbed these boxes.
This might be evidence that would interest a prosecutor, no ? It's not like they can just return the boxes, and all is forgiven with the law. I doubt seriously a bank robber would get off scott free with the prosecutor if he simply agreed to return the money. How is this situation any different ?
Keep fighting the fight.
Heather Holmes could be lying her way into a cushy PR job inside the mayor's office.
A scene playing itself out in cities across the country.....so-called community improvement organizations (read: gentrification catalysts) wanting everything to be shiny and harmonious so that the city can live up to their marketing pitches. Remove whatever's in the way (newspaper boxes, dissent, anything that isn't a cute coffee shop or new eatery, etc etc etc).
Wow...guess you guys struck a nerve! Keep up the good reporting!
And they want to merge with Cleveland?
That guy needs both his hands broken so badly that they wont bend after they finally heal.
And since his 2013 release he lives in Columbus, OHIO victimizing women in other ways. Covert Malignant Narcissist 100%.
Michael E. George is an attorney at the law firm Stark & Knoll LPA out of Akron. A simple google search would have revealed this to the author if he was interested in checking his "multiple sources."
One could easily surmise that envelopes stuffed with cash turned the property into trash.
My dad worked at Carlisle for 32 years and was covered in black dust all the time. Would shower at the plant and still have it on him. He had a stroke in 2002 and has had circulatory issues and heart issues. I wonder if its connected?
I'm a bar manager at a Cleveland spot that has over 20 taps of craft beer. We were buying Platform from the beginning and now have all but stopped. The amount of shitty kegs weve gotten was over the top. IPA shouldnt taste like vegetables and have floaty clumps in it. The owners are assholes and have burned bridges all across the industry. One of them was in my bar and acted like the king of clevelands beer. Wouldnt stop shit talking every other brewery. Its prety bad when all your peers are interviewed and no one has a nice thing to say about you.
The consistency issue with Platform Brewery is that they throw out all these one-offs. That contributes to why their beers can be so hit or miss. You simply don't have the time to refine a recipe. I like trying new things but I like to also have some confidence that it'll be good.
They have definitely had some ridiculous quality issues since their first brewer left. There was a batch of cans that had mold floating in the beer and I've heard from multiple people that they've found bees/flies in the cans. That simply disgusting.
When your main objective is to expand like crazy, quality always takes a back seat.
Speed Merchant used to be a great beer but it's often just terrible. Like undrinkable. I hope they turn it around because slick marketing will only last for so long.
Wow crazy! I knew that man and he scammed me out of like 700-750 when I was younger and dumb. I hope they eventually charge him somehow, how horrible
I work in a area bottle shop and I can tell you from experience that Platform cans leak on the shelves, plain and simple (not all of them, usually one or two a case - makes for quite the mess when you warm store Lawlessness on wooden shelves)..maybe get that issue sorted out before expanding down I-71 and trying to take over the CLE beer scene?
also jesus christ, in the end its all just beer, get over yourselves Beer Snobs. GLBC is what it is, MG is what it is, and Platform is over-hyped crap
We've known how for decades. What NASA is figuring out, is how to coordinate it with their constituents. While they're doing that, indie companies will do programs that focus on going directly to Mars, and may get there before them.
I think the article makes perfect sense. How can you have a quality product without testing when you are creating 20 new beers each cycle? Also, who says, "We are training our customers". I would argue this is a pretty misplaced statement.
Would I invest in Platform? No, variety is great, but it only takes one bad customer experience and they are gone for good. A friend left a Platform beer in my fridge and I tried it. It tasted rotten. I just figured the beer was not for me. But now reading about the lack of quality testing it makes sense.
