Re: “The Zombies to Play 'Odessey And Oracle' in Its Entirety One Last Time

A fan who completes the iconic trifecta of recent concerts with the Zombies - after Patti Smith and Bryan Ferry - has already made the year an amazing musical journey.

Though it's not the type of victory a conference will brag about.....the Big Ten - with the top six slots - tops the SEC (Florida in 8th) in the ranking.

Re: “Lakewood Taken to Court for Refusing to Release Hundreds of Public Records

Ouch. Very interesting. The "deal" was a scam from the beginning. Not enough Dollar Stores & hipster foodie restaurants / bars to replace this give away to the Clinic & Avon. Nice job Mayor & Council...

Re: “The Cozy Relationship Between Editor Chris Quinn and Mayor Frank Jackson, And What It Means For Coverage of City Hall

This is a democrat town with a democrat newspaper and city council. That's why nothing is balanced but all geared to the left which is why I cancelled my susbscription after many years. Tired of the nti police position , no hard line on the rule of law and too much sensitivity to criminals. Jackson is a disgrace with the City looking more and more like Chicago with murder and crime. He has not helped the minority community lift itself up . The police force is the lowest in decades with no attempt by the Mayor to beef the force up to deal with all the crime and gangs. Cities deteriorate under democrat governments.

I listen to him on the sound of ideas and you can tell he is a stooge for the mayor. I doubt he believes hald the stuff he says. It is really a shame.

Re: “Don't Press That Cavs Panic Button — The A to Z Podcast With Andre Knott and Zac Jackson

The bizarrely paranoid ESPN Cleveland suits recently targeted The Really Big Subreddit through a cease and desist notice surrounding the parodies created on video- and audio-sharing websites. The local programming wouldn't be a daily punch line if someone actually demanded professionalism from the on-air "talent".

Re: “Indians’ Senior Vice President to Tell World Series Stories Tonight at the Music Box

Perhaps the biggest BS moment in the long career of Bob DiBiasio dishing out BS: when the recession ripped through the region and communities were cancelling July 4th fireworks due to the cost, ol' Bob paraded around the local radio stations to announce the club was scheduling additional post-game pyrotechnic displays to fill the void. Funny - though - that admission did not mirror the "community days" celebrations (free).

Susan Goldberg pulled the operation out of being essentially a co-conspirator with the Dimora criminal enterprise.....but once she left (and her current stewardship of National Geographic is impeccable), the rats - again - began racing around the executive suite.

Re: “How Noisy Is It Around Cleveland? A New Interactive Map Has the Answers

That red swatch where 71 bends to the southwest is a lie. Makes it look like the worst is only directly above the freeway. Not so, Boston. It should be much wider, as there are three glide paths that feed into three parallel NE-SW runways, which are the main landing runways. This is because the prevailing winds are mostly S and SW, rather than N and NE..

The third of these runways opened maybe fifteen years ago, and now put most incoming aircraft directly over my house. We are 2.5 miles from touchdown. When Air Force One brings the POTUS to town, or Fed Ex comes in (low and slow and huge, twice a day), I can count the rivets. Visitors sitting on my back porch or deck routinely duck.

The FAA soundproofing program of the Nineties only brings remediation in the winter months. In the warm weather months...not so much. Not unless you want to run your AC 24/7. We like fresh air.

Unfortunately, we also like having good hearing. And decades under the Hopkins flight path has slowly been killing off our eardrums. You do get used to the noise, even as your hearing deteriorates.

Re: “The Browns Already Hate Their New Uniforms, Will Probably Have New Ones in 2020, Because Of Course

Still two weeks until the opener, but you just had to get that "racist red sambo caricature" snark in there, didn't you?

As for the colors, if they keep going 5-11 ( one can only hope!) year after year, let alone 3-13 or even 1-15, who cares what shade of orange they are wearing when they lose and lose and lose? Make the helmets white instead of white is .the color of the white flag of surrender.

Better yet, make the helmets brown and the pants brown and the jerseys brown...because they're the Stinky Browns...and brown is the color I need to spell it (or smell it) out for you?

Until they have at least a 50-50 chance of winning on any given Sunday, I will continue to find something else to do with my time, which gets shorter and shorter when you're a geezer, and is therefore more precious. Also, it hurts less when you care less...or when you finally quit caring at all.

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

Regulation and ignorance has driven the cost of maintaining these "state of the ark" plants sky high. The plants were designed and licensed to handle "design basis accidents", which were clearly spelled out and given the nod by the NRC. Then came Three Mile Island, and more recently, Fukushima in Japan. The regulations changed. The FLEX strategy developed as a knee jerk reaction to Fukushima drove plant owners to implement design changes and purchase equipment for postulated scenarios BEYOND what the design basis required. Digital technology used in other industries is seriously lagging behind due to cyber security requirements, thus we're stuck with analog technology from the 1970s and 1980s. Vendors are getting sick and tired of trying to meet qualification requirements for safety related equipment for a very narrow customer base, so we're running out of qualified parts.
I worked at Davis Bessie for four years during the hole in the head fiasco, so the management decisions made are also coming back to haunt these plants even now. Save a nickel now, spend $$$ later. The managers at that time got their bonuses and moved on, leaving a mess for the next poor sucker.
Sorry to hear Perry might be closed as well. Worked there, too, and at the time the workers really cared about doing their job well. Agree there were some managers there that shouldn't have been, but overall, a good plant.

Re: “City Council Begins Q Deal Deliberations, Cavs' Cheerleaders are No-Shows

Last week, Mike Polensek made a strong case on The Bob Frantz Authority radio show (AM 1420 The Answer). But there is nothing that will prevent this monstrosity of legislation from passage -- the deals were cut long before the show entered City Hall. All that's missing is Tom Chema rattling off a whole lot of nothing before baffled and bored city council members.

Good to keep in mind that the DOT didn't visit and take any actual noise estimates, but modeled these colors based on estimates of road and air traffic.

I bet where I live is one of the loudest areas. Right by 90 and planes fly low directly over our house every day on their descent, not to mention the neighbors are only 6ft away on either side. Oh City Life!
