Re: “John Stahl

W/the baggage ALL THIS created sure a REAL HARD thing to 'back'. ALMOST like carrying dead weight of all kinds for all. INSTEAD of celebrating WONDERING WHAT kind of hideousness is gonna land on One's desk. Gonna settle out @ X level and call it a day.....WHAT would any half way sane person/administrator do w/all this going on.... got attractions NOW that semi linger as undertake NEW! NEW! ad campaigns to jumpstart patronage.... Good old DCA did this to save OWN bacon which more or less did. SOME NEWER happy building owners cuz unloaded old office buildings....

Re: “John Stahl

WEIRD way STAHL and CSKL were collateral side damage of RNC among other things. NEARLY ANYONE tied to County and or THIS has been nailed including good old Me Jimmy D. PEOPLE FEAR stuck w/all kinds of costs and THIS project ranks up THERE. STAHL says no cost. Ok. WHAT if things go blank, stuck w/some rotting corpse THEN have to dispose of. WHO wants to stand on podium defending all THAT.... bad ENOUGH the LAND BANKS, rest TRYING to deal w/blank trying to unload now... NO idea HOW long this millennial Yuppie downtown loft liver thing will continue... look @ NEW Playhouse Sq. 19 story gig want to build on what East 15th? WHAT if have a (LONG OVERDUE) 'recession'. When things go SOUTH for US takes YEARS to recover.. HOW much new high cost software gonna write? Ok so have all these medical colleges spitting out medical staff earning WHAT kind of HIGH $. STILL. NOT 'that many'. FLING a $200 to $300 MILLION PLUS $ figure out there and people freak.... didn't go too well for much maligned Taxin TIm Hagan. HIS own NIECE paid a H of a price NEAR 10 YEARS AFTER the fact.... can read whatever into all THAT... good old DCH, MED MART, etc. SURE REAL QUIET about all this... time will DC HILTON as to ultimately what THEY do... talking near on $1 billion $s. OTHER then barbacks, bikini dancers, other making $ out of it LOST on rest of city..... VIEWED as some wigged out make work.... NOT even 1/2 thru city and already a blank reply. OUTFITS downsize, move, contract out, etc.etc and gonna build NEW MONSTROSITY buildings WERE @ WHAT cost... put it THIS way... RISING CHINA.... like ONE BILLION Sq.ft EMPTY space. H of a export. IF wonder WHY really having a BAD ENGLISH call center day THAT is part of it...or all of 'it'.

Let CANTOn have fun w/their toy.... makes more sense for THEM.... Put it THIS way... WHAT kind of insane over the top BS all the time in media never mind lower key unreported crap? SAD have to this pseudo army, gates, locks on everything but what else gonna do. HECK... good old illustrious Mayor frank J more or less locked down Downtown far as NEW public square to rest of it. ALWAYS a cop car sitting around THERE...... IS what it is. HIGH enough curbs, etc. SURE to deflect 'turfers' among other things...

Re: “John Stahl

Cleveland Skylift? NICE idea. Too pricy. Too much that can go wrong. Too many administrators, cops, politicos, other doing CYA. Tooo many pricy HIGH cost HIGH tax pseudo boondoggle projects like MED MART and AMERISTRUST tower that gave like a blank in so many ways and hardly a inspiring moment. NOW County going thru some weird IT county wide system upgrade that caused FED AGENTS to issue summons, take computers RIGHT out of COUNTY building. Like 5 or 8 COUNTY people plus like # on HYLAND's side in real trouble now..... Project gets support, patronage for AWHILE til DIES back way FLATS other stuff does. SAD to predicate everything on some idiot clowns doing BS but get ENOUGH of that and see WHAT happens... go ask ex FLATS restaurant crews among others how all that went... A MESS. Got a mix of anti intellectualism, anti Yuppie, ANTI high $ building builders and a whole slew of other stuff going on as good old city Hall chases high $ white collar as rakes average slobs....and WONDER WHY few or no 1 wants to linger around for events down @ Public Square thou quite frankly anymore w/ALL THE BS going on who wants to get caught up in some 'situation'.

Re: “Trevor Elkins

Newburgh Heights is notorious for police harassment. I myself was stopped, ostensibly for a tail light. I was then made to do the tightrope walk and take a breathylizer. I blew a .02, well below the legal limit. But they still refused to let me go. They first called in an ambulance to check my blood sugar level. Then they brought in another officer, who started giving me the third degree on the spot. I asked if I was under arrest, and if I could talk to a lawyer. They would not give me a straight answer. Finally they placed me under arrest and took me to Bedford Hospital for a blood draw. They impounded my car, and I was not able to get my license back for three months, until I had my day in court. I ended up pleading no contest to physical control, just to get my car back. It cost me more than $1000 in court costs, impound fees, and drunk camp.

Trevor Elkins has no business running for County Democratic chair until he gets his own house in order.

Re: “Trevor Elkins

Police sitting on the side of the road slow the traffic moron. Not some coward, hiding, taking pictures of cars. Your full of shit, and a bold faced lier, saying that it's for safety. Yes I got a ticket, the $150 for the ticket will be the last money your businesses and community will ever receive from me. I am only one person, but I have many friends.

Re: “Ronnie Dunn

I was blessed to have Dr. Dunn at Cleveland State as a professor. He is a highly-intelligent, honorable, compassionate man.

His students, and Cleveland State, are lucky to have him.

Re: “Pamela Eyerdam

Going to the library downtown is such a treat! Special Collections is one of the best departments in the library. Pam is always a wealth of information, and she's a super cool person to be around. So glad she was included in this list. Congrats Pam!!!

Re: “Brandon Luis Santiago

Brandon is the real-deal. He's redefining what it means to be a craftsman, and is leaving the world a little bit better than he found it. We should all follow his example.

Re: “Keisha Gonzalez

Stark Enterprises - NuCLEus project:

Stark Enterprises, a local developer, is proposing the project. Cleveland City Council and the Cleveland Board of Education (The Board) would vote separately on the proposal. Ultimately, the decision rests with Cleveland City Council.

Do both The Board and Cleveland City Council have to accept or reject the proposal, or will it go forward if only one body agrees?
Cleveland City Council has the final say and can approve the proposal without The Boards consent.

Do both The Board and Cleveland City Council have to accept or reject the proposal, or will it go forward if only one body agrees?

What happens to the $18 million offered to CMSD if Cleveland City Council approves the TIF?
If Cleveland City Council approves the TIF, the District would not receive the $18 million being offered.

Re: “Keisha Gonzalez

"You learn about CDCs in college and you think that sounds horrible, I never want to work there."

I warned Keisha and now she is sucked into the nightmare. It's too bad she is stuck promoting the lies that this fake satellite CDC peddles to our neighborhood. And, FTR, Villa Hispana has NO significant Latin investor - the shadow partner is Stark Enterprises - the same crooks who want tax incremental financing for the "NucLeus" or whatever the hell they call it.

Re: “Brandon Luis Santiago

Brandon is re-inventing the wheel, with his style, top notch product, and work ethic. From the day CHR was founded I knew he would become a star in the business. The dude is all business, on time, courteous, and takes the time to turn a floor into a work of art. It's crazy what he is capable of especially after viewing his accomplishments to this point. Just take 5 minutes and look at his Instagram handle @clevelandwoodbee and marvel.

Re: “Brandon Luis Santiago

Nice article. I know Brandon first from Instagram, then we were on a work trip to Germany together where we visited the Lgler headquarters. He is a solid floorman and a solid family man. I'd hire him to do my own home.
