Re: “Islamic Center of Cleveland Opens New Free Health Clinic to Help Serve Uninsured

Do their docs have anything they can prescribe for my islamaphobia? I have it real bad ever since I got sick from Sharia.

Cleveland being a couple degrees warmer can't be all bad.

A border shared with East Cleveland: we chose this.
High taxes and terrible schools: we chose this.
Trash flying about on garbage day: we chose this.

Is it bad enough to spray the upper atmosphere with chemicals to reflect back the sun's rays? I see articles all the time now about Stratospheric Aerosol injections being sprayed from jets to combat climate change. The pics in those articles always looks like the sky over Cleveland.

Re: “On the Art of Conversation and John Cusack's Appearance at the Akron Civic Theater

Just found this and agree with her lack of ability and the level of skill it really requires, but in addition there was clearly a personality issue with this woman. Id never heard of her and why anyone thought a radio DJ could do this is beyond me. Her narcissistic and extraordinarily childish personality was a poor fit with Mr. Cusack; but more importantly she disrespected the audience who had paid up to $200 for just that part of the show - to experience a conversation with the actor NOT to listen to someone wed never heard of try to impress her childhood crush with her google skills. Shame on the promoters for such poor decision-making.

Re: “Cleveland Heights Announces New, Dumb City Branding Slogan That Everyone Hates

We're still here, going to the Cedar Lee, attending the Heights High Annual Pancake Breakfast, walking to Cain Park, hanging out at Tommy's, catching some jazz at Nighttown, learning to fix our houses at Home Repair Resource Center, touring our mansions during HCC's Heights Home Heritage Tour, walking or running in the Happy 5K ... We're. Still. Here.

Re: “'Shawshank Redemption' Cast Reunites for 25th Film Anniversary in Mansfield

My husband and I moved to Colorado and were looking so forward to flying out for the Shawshank Anniversay in August 2019. Imagine our very sad surprise how MUCH it cost to be there and buying tickets for different events. It's a shame that it will cost to much for MANY fans who would love to be a part of this but can't. That includes us. Too bad this couldn't of been more cost effective for the the true fans.

Re: “College Credit Plus: Giving Ohio Kids a Leg Up

Thank you for the clear and concise overview of this program. While I agree that for the right student this program is beneficial, I wanted to raise awareness that if time, energy, and resources are devoted to an educational initiative, it usually means that another might be getting overlooked. I hope that mental health supports, coping strategies for stress and anxiety, and emotional supports arent pushed to the side in pursuit of a singular vision of academic success.

Re: “Cleveland Unveils Pitch for 'Opportunity Zone' Projects

With incompetents like Taxin Jackson, and thief Budish in charge of this area, nothing will likely ever change around here!!!

Until these crooks are finally recalled from office and sent right to jail, they will simply raise our already high taxes, and continue to waste taxpayer funds on more and more nonsensical projects like these!!!

Re: “Cleveland Unveils Pitch for 'Opportunity Zone' Projects

Remember Richard Nixon's "Community Capitalism"? Remember Ronald Reagan's "Enterprise Zones"? Then George H.W. Bush's "Empowerment Zones"? Or Bill Clinton's "New Markets Tax Credits"? Then Barack Obama's "Promise Zones"?

It's all the same bullshit over and over: Basically eliminate most federal taxes on businesses if they invest in high-poverty areas.

They simply don't work.

Under Reagan, for example, businesses gamed the system and got the tax cuts without doing much of anything. Additionally, the "job creation" was merely the relocation of jobs from an area juuuust outside the "Enterprise Zone", which created no jobs at all. (It did piss off workers who loathed being in poverty-striken, higher-crime areas with fewer amenities.) Even when a new job was created, it came at very high cost -- an average of $53,162 in lost tax revenue.

THE PROBLEM is that high taxes are not why businesses don't invest in high-poverty areas. The real reasons are that these areas lack an educated labor force, the poor lack access to private transportation or mass transit to get to jobs, many poor areas have serious infrastructure problems, and many poor workers have behavioral, child-care, domestic, health, and other problems which make it not only difficult for them to get a job but to perform efficiently and to hold that job long-term.

Opportunity Zones do not address these issues.

But, you know, this is Cleveland. Beat that dead horse. Beat it again! We love to hit things!

Re: “Cleveland Unveils Pitch for 'Opportunity Zone' Projects

Just Google "Opportunity Zones" and all you see are references to investment, Capital Gains, non-taxable income, deferred taxes...it just makes you thing the whole thing is a scheme to put more $$$ into the pockets of rich developers, while average folks (and those who need services that have been cut to create these programs) are left holding the bag.

I can see a lot of money being pushed around, lot of "on-paper profits" being made - and in the end, having little to show for it. Let's see some projects that actually benefit people and create jobs.
