Re: “Sterle's Country House to Close After More than 60 Years

Quality of food went down, quantity of food went down, price went up. Wasn't worth the trek anymore. Will stick to the Slovenian Workmen's Home instead.

Re: “Government Report Says Great Lakes in Bad Condition, Lake Erie Worst of the Bunch

Yeah, there are a lot of stupid people in this country and they appear to be mostly white. I've known this for a long time but I always hoped my fellow white people would smarten up. Alas, it has not happened. They will ruin the planet and ruin the civilization they worked so hard to develop.

Re: “On David Griffin's Departure, Dan Gilbert and Power — The A to Z Podcast With Andre Knott and Zac Jackson

If the double-barreled Wednesday report is correct that LeBron and Kyrie contacted Jimmy Butler to warn him about the dysfunction that's dripping through the Cavaliers - and Kyrie is poised to demand a trade if LeBron leaves via free agency - then this franchise is blasting into Ted Stepien-styled drama.....with no safety net.

Not to mention the airplane that sadly crashed into Lake Erie after a Cavs game earlier this year. Tons of jetfuel etc. polluting the water on top of environmental pollutants.

Re: “Lakewood Residents Pushing Back Against Pit Bull Ban

Ban pit bulls if you are interested in saving the lives of children, adults, and pets.

Why are we still breeding fighting dogs?

Why are we still breeding pit bulls when they were created for such horrific purposes?

Ignoring dead and mutilated children is not the answer.

Banning the breeding of pit bulls everywhere is!

Re: “Sterle's Country House to Close After More than 60 Years

Always sad to read of such an icon going down. I've never met the owner, but
he was nothing if not gallant about trying to make a go of it. Iconic nationality places
like that have had a tough go of it, for sure. I hope the rest
of his places there do well.

Sterle's was a great place but when the neighborhood changes the cliental changes so the business has to change not all for the better.

This makes me sad. The food and service have gone downhill ever since the new owner took over.

Re: “Here's Two Lakewood Residents Calling the Cops to Complain There are Black People Around

Why is this an article. I mean how many black people do you think are being racist about whites or other minorities? I don't need to know about certainly wouldn't report that truth.

Re: “Lakewood Residents Pushing Back Against Pit Bull Ban

All dogs hold on and shake. This is just not a pit bull thing. I had an Irish Setter that would catch ground hogs and shake them.

Re: “Lakewood Residents Pushing Back Against Pit Bull Ban

Pit bull owner here. Nonetheless, let's be truthful. Pit bulls were bred for hundreds of years under intense selective pressure to attack and kill other animals. Though just about 5% of dogs kept as pets they are responsible for over 90% of serious attacks on people and other animals, killing over 40 animals a day and a person every 17 days in the US. Their manner of attack, with little warning and a bite, shake and great refusal to release is what allows them to do so much damage in a short amount of time. Thanks to the misguided efforts of pit bull advocates, pit bulls are the most bred, abused, neglected, fought, abandoned and euthanized dogs in the country. Breed specific legislation turns off this faucet of tragedy.

Personally, I love the non-linear editing in the film. I feel that Denis Villeneuve is going to be 21st century's Ridley Scott

Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association

December 15, 2013, Vol. 243, No. 12, Pages 1726-1736

Co-occurrence of potentially preventable factors in 256 dog biterelated fatalities in the United States (20002009)

Gary J. Patronek, VMD, PhD; Jeffrey J. Sacks, MD, MPH; Karen M. Delise; Donald V. Cleary, BA; Amy R. Marder, VMD

Center for Animals and Public Policy, Department of Environmental and Population Health, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, Tufts University, North Grafton, MA 01536. (Patronek); Sue Binder Consulting Inc, 3958 Preston Ct NE, Atlanta, GA 30319. (Sacks); National Canine Research Council, 433 Pugsley Hill Rd, Amenia, NY 12501. (Delise, Cleary); Center for Shelter Dogs at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, 10 Chandler St, Boston, MA 02116. (Marder)

The National Canine Research Council supported the efforts of Karen Delise from 2006 to 2011 for assembly of case reports and data abstraction and Kara Gilmore, JD, for assistance with data abstraction and validation from case reports.

Donald Cleary is Director of Communications and Publications at the National Canine Research Council and Treasurer of Animal Farm Foundation, parent organization of the National Canine Research Council.

Presented in part as an oral presentation at the AVMA Annual Convention, Chicago, July 2013.

Address correspondence to Dr. Patronek (

ObjectiveTo examine potentially preventable factors in human dog biterelated fatalities (DBRFs) on the basis of data from sources that were more complete, verifiable, and accurate than media reports used in previous studies.

DesignProspective case series.

Sample256 DBRFs occurring in the United States from 2000 to 2009.

ProceduresDBRFs were identified from media reports and detailed histories were compiled on the basis of reports from homicide detectives, animal control reports, and interviews with investigators for coding and descriptive analysis.

ResultsMajor co-occurrent factors for the 256 DBRFs included absence of an able-bodied person to intervene (n = 223 [87.1%]), incidental or no familiar relationship of victims with dogs (218 [85.2%]), owner failure to neuter dogs (216 [84.4%]), compromised ability of victims to interact appropriately with dogs (198 [77.4%]), dogs kept isolated from regular positive human interactions versus family dogs (195 [76.2%]), owners prior mismanagement of dogs (96 [37.5%]), and owners history of abuse or neglect of dogs (54 [21.1%]). Four or more of these factors co-occurred in 206 (80.5%) deaths. For 401 dogs described in various media accounts, reported breed differed for 124 (30.9%); for 346 dogs with both media and animal control breed reports, breed differed for 139 (40.2%). Valid breed determination was possible for only 45 (17.6%) DBRFs; 20 breeds, including 2 known mixes, were identified.

Conclusions and Clinical RelevanceMost DBRFs were characterized by coincident, preventable factors; breed was not one of these. Study results supported previous recommendations for multifactorial approaches, instead of single-factor solutions such as breed-specific legislation, for dog bite prevention.
