Re: “Jury Awards Plaintiffs $392,750 in Sexual Abuse Cover-Up Case Involving Chagrin Falls Nanny School

@Lynette Wommer ... Character witnesses might have altered the verdict for some of the other jurors. ENGS lost this trial because the other jurors thought of them as "monsters", and Christina somehow must have become more of a relevant victim than the daughter who was abused.

"If you see something, say something" ... TO PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP! Christina had been on a 3 day interview and in contact with Heidi Kaiser (the Placement Director) the whole time. Understandable ... "status reporting". When Christina told Heidi Kaiser what she had witnessed, it was within the context of "status reporting". Christina was a 28 y/o woman with considerable child-care experience. Wouldn't she understand the difference between a report to the police or family-services (people who can HELP), and a "status report" to her Placement Director?

The above article makes ENGS seem pretty guilty. It might have been more fair and objective if the reporter had mentioned that the only undisputed conversations between Roth, Galord, and Cruz occurred TWO WEEKS AFTER THE INCIDENT!!! The quotes came from Christina and Sherry. Sherry is the person that Sheilagh Roth referred to Christina to HELP HER MAKE THE REPORT!!!

I think that Christina's "erratic-behavior" (from her desperate need for a job) had damaged her credibility. I think that Christina may have been using the incident more as leverage to get interviews than to get help for the girls.

I think that I might be more effective if I answer intelligent questions from anyone who wants to know how ENGS lost the trial.

Re: “Surprise! Chardon Shooter T.J. Lane is Having Trouble in Prison

I know I'm "late" but why are you all so rude like really quit being a bunch of butthurted asshole and forgive this child, he did this for many reasons.. The main reason... Probably was because one of the guys he killed threaten to beat him up. He was basically defending himself also.. lets not forget his childhood... that was all a fucking mess. I feel deeply sorry for him.. having to grow up in that kind of situation. I hope he is in good care.. and gets the treatment he needs... he does not need to suffer for something like this in Jail..... yes I know it's wrong to kill people.. but still... it's also wrong to threaten people... he was threaten and he grew up in fear. Why don't you all try living in his shoes before being haters? Ignorant people these days.

Re: “The Cavs Have Gotten Rid of the Bidding Option on Flash Seats, For Now

I HATE this new policy!!! Being a season ticket holder for twelve seasons, I suffered through the lean years when you couldn't give tickets away. I cannot attend all of the games and Flash seats gave everyone the opportunity to enjoy the teams success and attend a weekday game, that sells for much less than marquee games. Supply and demand established the prices that fans would pay to attend games. I was never insulted by low ball offers, I simply ignored them. I am hopeful that this policy changes very soon and all Cavs fans will once again be able to enjoy a game at the "Q". Management...go back to doing the right thing for your fans! GO CAVS!!!

Re: “Indians Say Charlie Sheen Won't Throw World Series First Pitch, Fans Now Stump for John Adams

I guess everyone forgot that time Lebron abandoned the city to go party with his friends. He doesn't deserve to throw the first pitch. A championship after you were a piece of garbage doesn't suddenly make you not a piece of garbage.

They have ruined every athlete they have been in a relationship with. Every sports team should put a no contact clause in all of the contracts.

Re: “The Cavs Have Gotten Rid of the Bidding Option on Flash Seats, For Now

Hey Vince...great article!
As a Wine and Gold member, I liked the option of people bidding on tickets I couldn't use or tickets that were returned to me last minute. No one is forced to buy or sell their tickets and the Cavs make an extra 20% on the resale of these already sold tickets again! I think this policy is just so 1. people will purchase tickets from the box office that are released last minute, and 2. help the Cavs' secondary market friends, like Stubhub, etc. They especially want to eliminate extra ticket sellers and unfortunately, the cavs management has chosen to side with them and not their fans. Too bad.

Re: “MLB Announces Official Game Times for the World Series

Gotta wonder if Fox announcers will be less biased against the Tribe than TBS was...they made the games almost unwatchable with their obvious preferences for Boston and Toronto.

I have friends coming here from Chicago to try to score tickets if the Cubs win. They probably won't get them, as they are not super-rich. So they wanted to know where they could go have a few drinks and watch the games and not get killed for being Cub fans.

I said "Good luck...ain't no such place." If it's Tribe vs. Cubs, I guess I told them right. Right?

LeBron will be getting his ring next door at the same time. He's not available.

Former players will reportedly get the assignment.....which probably means the small pool of individuals who work the annual fantasy camp, lend a hand during spring training and make appearances during the regular season.

Re: “Thousands of Absentee and Provisional Ballots Will be Tossed Out Next Month. Here's Why, and How to Avoid It

It seems to me that these two shouldn't complain, since they can't even follow a few simple instructions. The ballot and envelope with different names? And then 1 of 5 fields on the ballot envelope blank? I'd reject it too, no matter what kind of explanatory note was included.
