Re: “Excitement Over Cleveland's Brewery Explosion Has Given Way to Questions of a Brewery Bubble

I am an Ohio City resident who is doing his best to support all of our breweries. In my fridge at home are bottles from Great Lakes and Market Garden (love the Ohio City Stout and Wallace Tavern Ale), and cans from Platform (love the Lawlessness Porter and the Paul Cider). And I have spent several nice evenings recently sitting at the bar at Hansa Brewing, as well as Nano Brew, Market Garden, Platform and GLBC. It is nice to have choices and I am looking forward to trying Saucy Brew as well.

95% of the beer to be sold in the new Cincinnati brewpub opening in the old Weenie a Go Go will come from Cincinnati. My father always told me to drink the local beer, and Cincy ain't local. So they will have to survive on overflow from the local guys.

Beer bubble in Ohio City? Not as long as I'm still able to hoist a pint.

Re: “I See The Truth

Pretty suspicious behavior from Dan Dreifort. A woman is dead while he is "living the high life" as an internet troll. What is he and his sister Deborah Dreifort hiding about this murder?

Re: “Badlands

And here we are seven years later and Horizon Corp has disappeared.
They moved their big sports center and changed the name to Spire, putting it on safe ground in Geneva.
I hope the new waterpark that is planned for Fairport is not going to be on this site.

And here we are seven years later. Horizon corp. has done nothing more with this project. They relocated the sports center and renamed it to Spire and put it on safe ground in Geneva.
I hope the plan for the new waterpark is not planned for this site.

Re: “Who the Hell Does Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish Think He Is?

Cleveland can only rely on so many beer/whiskey, pastry and restaurant startups to employ all of those out of work. We need lucrative businesses, or tax incentives, in order to get things going around here.
RNC and Cavs championship do not a successful city make.
Council members, instead of acting like they work in D.C., should take care of their own instead of constantly giving the infamous "It is what it is" answer.

Or what about led in the water? Not seeing many follow-ups on that one either. Perhaps it's time these goons go talk to Pittsburgha city that kept its head above water and flourished in the process. Nobody respects this city; still the butt of jokes, quite literally. Comedians don't even like coming here, so I've heard a few big names say. Columbus is the place to be right now. Cuyahoga County and surrounding areas is a tragedy.

Re: “The Verdict Is In

Some of these remarks should go up in front of a board, to determine if the judge is letting there own opinion block there judgement and allowing there personal belief to over take the case at hand

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

Gahl-Mills seems well versed in the art of dodging a question. She is a career administrator. Apparently with little grasp of the actual "art" community, that she is supposedly in a position to fund and represent. Time to audit our tax dollars...

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

I agree with Lee. I find it terribly disturbing that the Community for Art and Culture doesn't see art as a valuable asset to the community. No, it truly does not value the quality or integrity of the talent in this city. Defining art as "not public" is equal to saying the public does not value art unless we create some theater to shove it down their throats. Pathetic. The city demographic is another issue; working artists ARE a minority. We have grants for women, minorities, public works projects, and for artsy events; what we DON'T have, is a grant for individual artists based on merit. Just living in Cuyahoga County and making art shows incredible dedication and should be rewarded. CAC should give every artist who applies to the grant two tickets to a Browns game and call it a day.

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

Brilliant artists and their projects don't necessarily do anything but create stuff that evokes an emotional response. Not every emotional response is a transformation. What if it we considered cat pictures too wasteful a use of bandwidth on the Internet and prohibited sharing them? So what if they don't serve a useful purpose, people like them! That's art! Some people like stuff an artist makes, others don't. Some art changes lives and thinking, others are just weird or entertaining. Furthermore, many artists are NOT good at public relations. We never expected Albert Belle to be a happy-go-lucky community changer, we just wanted him to hit home runs and make the Indians win. It's great to make sure we get funding to a wider diversity of artists, but it's silly to expect everyone to be a Bob Ross or Bono. Not every artist likes the limelight, and not every artist is about changing the world. Some are happy just making people smile, or maybe just tilt their head. Art doesn't have to always have a social message or impact to be useful to the communitysometimes it just looks more interesting than a plain wall or a plain patch of grassand isn't that enough sometimes?

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

Actually, it sounds like a bunch of white middle-class artists are upset that they will no longer have a chance to get taxpayer money for whatever they feel like doing. "Community change-makers" sounds like individuals who are actively involved in their communities, as opposed to artists who think we should shower them with cash in gratitude that they deign to live amidst us clods.

That may not be the case, but the cases presented here certainly paint that picture.

The definition of "community change-makers" -- the small fry need not apply.

Since I am a native Clevelander, I'm just going to assume that some kind of corruption is at work here and move along.
