Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

You guys are so right. I mean, I can't believe a location has become desirable and someone wants to invest money in it to develop what's currently a vacant piece of land with abandoned buildings on it. What a heartless jerk that developer is. Doesn't he know that two or three streets away there are some houses? Doesn't he know that once you build something and create a "neighborhood", it should never change? I don't care if they were built 100+ years ago or not. Or if there is literally a 6 lane freeway right across the street. If dude isn't building 1200SF single family homes, GTFO! And while we're on the topic, someone find those Irish immigrant bastards who moved out after the depression. I don't remember saying they could leave and let the gentrified steel workers move in.

Seriously now, where can we develop if not here? Apparently close-downtown communities are off limits because now we're gentrifying them. But isn't pushing folks to the suburbs supposedly bad as well? Urban sprawl AMIRITE!? So I guess downtown it is....but don't tear down any old buildings, even if they're about to fall down on their own (Stanley Block Building). It's not like this proposal is to bulldoze a residential block and put in a sewage treatment plant. It's a residential building with some commercial on a busy main thoroughfare to the west side. It pretty much aligns with what I see along Detroit right now, except it's going to be new instead of old.

All that being said, in the spirit of unity I think we can agree on at least one thing: "Hingetown" is a stupid name and should never be repeated.

Re: “Michael Symon Won't Let Donald Trump Into His Restaurants During RNC

Simon should be put before a judge, fined several 100 thousand dollars, have his restaurants closed and be barred by the judge from discussing anything about his case! (In the same manner that our government treated the couple who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple!). Put that on your grill and smoke it!

I guess we need to shut everything down and move back into tepees, caves and tents.

Look what inner city youth had done to Cleveland and Chicago and Detroit. Let's clean up that mess first.

Re: “What You Need to Know About Ohio's Medical Marijuana Law, In Effect For Seven Months and Changing Every Day

I believe that education needs to continue on this subject. Most Ohioans view it as a negative thing when in reality it is no different than someone drinking. Look at the tax money that can be collected by the state. Colorado in 2016 collected $150.00 million, why are we so close minded in Ohio?
I do not smoke pot nor will I when it is legal but I do see the advantages to it. You have people suffering and using drugs that will harm them or even kill them. Let them smoke pot without being punished for it. Look at the opioid epidemic currently happening in every state right now. We are trying to come up with something to help them, why not let them smoke weed?
As a business person I can see great potential here. I personally would love to open a shop with a variety of different flavors for people to purchase legally. I think that offering candies, oils, wax, and marijuana would be very profitable. People are going to do it no matter what why not make a profit off of it.
I have worked in the medical field for 30 years and I am very surprised more physicians are not on board with this. We feed the pharmaceutical companies every day with income over drugs that potentially cause more harm than good over time. So why not get on board with something more natural?
In your article you state that there are only going to be 24 licenses distributed throughout Ohio, I honestly hope this gets distributed to rural communities as well. It is hard for people to travel an hour plus to a larger city to see providers and get prescriptions they cannot get at home.

Re: “Slavic Village Chosen as Target Neighborhood by Cleveland Chain Reaction Investors

In Hyacinth, just down from Fleet we are developing a neighborhood from scratch to mix airbnb medical visitors and tourist with lease to own homes for non qualified traditional mortgage buyers.

Fleet development has been very helpful in our fantastic first phase. Now we are onto phase two which includes more building and rehabbing properties.( Phase three is new construction)

So the Rover pipeline caused a mess? Sounds a lot like that other Rover, the mess on morning drive-time radio. He pollutes the airwaves every weekday. And what the hell is drilling fluid, anyway? Two million gallons? The mind boggles.

Who is bentonite named for? Thomas Hart Benton? Barbi Benton? Inquiring minds wanna know!

Sounds like business as usual in North Missitucky...another day, another dollar.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

Yeah. to East Cleveland., as University Circle's gentrification wave will break in that direction, and the smart money will get on their smartphones and pick up a whole block for a song. Smart!

Hell, maybe they'll only need to hum a few bars.

The artsy-fartsy crowd got pushed out of Tremont. Then Ohio City. And finally Gordon Square.

Next stop...North Collinwood? That will go the way of the other places, too. They all do.
It's the way of the world. Happens everywhere.

I'd say, several hundred brave people made this all possible over 20-30 years perseverance. Amazing.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

And so the saga continues, and the Brooklynization of the Near West Side marches on like an army of steamrollers. Ohio City today, Gordon Square tomorrow...and who knows what else...and where else...in a month or a year.

Hingetown, we hardly knew ye. Stupid name anyway, Still Ohio City to most folks.

Make way for the rowdy late-night drinkers, and the hordes of well-heeled Millennial yupsters who will visit, and the young high-rolers who will reside there, stacked up on top of each other like cans of beans in a grocery display. Good-bye to the older, long-time has-beans.

If the affluent and beer-fueled corner of 29th and Detroit MUST have a label...I humbly suggest...Bingetown.

Can't help but notice that the two people who don't live here and aren't part of the longtime near west side community are also unwilling to post under their own names while disparaging the neighbhorhood. Brave stuff right there.

Re: “Case Western Students, Faculty Talk Public Safety Concerns in Wake of Steve Stephens Manhunt

The students have every right to be angry. Their anger should be directed at the city of Cleveland leadership. The event of that day was sad. The pathetic aspect of that day is the city waited 4 hours to notify any and everybody of an active shooter within the city.

Several within the media are not asking the hard and right questions of the mayor and the police chief. Why the delay?

Re: “Dennis Kucinich Decries Syria Strike, Wants Tribe Scorecard to Monitor Military-Industrial Complex

As a citizen of and believer in democracy, I applaud the efforts of the
Syrian people. Their efforts are similar to what is happening in Libya,
Yemen, Algeria and Bahrain as well as the most recent revolutions in
Egypt and Tunisia.

Believe it or not, one thing that trumps capitalism and political
correctness in the United States is the right to have one's voice heard.
This is the foundation of which our democracy is built on. The Syrian
people should continue to defy Bashar al-Assad's powerful
security forces so that Syrian democracy can begin to thrive. It is
unfortunate that the United States compromised on one of its most
fundamental values in order to protect its economic interests in the
Middle East; something that happens all too often domestically as well.
It is not the Syrian people that are attempting to seize power but rather
it is those currently in power who have engaged in intimidation to prevent
the will of the people from being heard. Why else would they stoop to such
underhanded tactics to block various means of communication among the
citizens of Syria? Why is the government in power utilizing such
political strong-arm tactics as the use of violence?

Bashar al-Assad, you have had seventeen years to lead Syria and have
failed them by your own choosing. The days of the despotic regime are
finally coming to an end as it appears the desire for freedom will continue
to sweep among the Arab nations. Accordingly, let the call go forth among
all citizens of Syria that your brothers and sisters of democracy from all
over the world are with you during every trial and tribulation you may
encounter during this crisis. To the people of Syria, the trumpet of
freedom beckons you to rise in protest and ensure your voice to preserve
your sacred heritage, promote your children's future and obtain the
blessings of liberty we all cherish.

Syria, the hour of your redemption is at hand. As you the rightful citizens
move forward to reclaim your own country, rise and strike! In the name of
those who were murdered fighting for everyone's rights, rise and strike!
To end the rule of this evil regime, rise and strike! Let no one continue
to fear this man. Let every Syrian be strong and fight on for their
freedom. Rise and strike!

Bashar al-Assad, put aside your selfish ego and let the people go!
