Re: “Here is What "nuCLEus" Actually Means

It's a piece or a story, CTH...you're the one who sounds like that sulking teen when you label it an "article"...grow the f'k up, loser.

Bunch of hype and hot air "New CLE Us"...Cheezus Chrysler...about an extremely UGLY concept...it looks like that high-rise hellhole in which 80 poor bastards died in London. BEFORE it burned down, I mean. Nice plan to ruin the skyline, boys. Please stop this mess before it kills more vistas.

Re: “Cleveland Metroparks Celebrates 100 Years in Spectacular Fashion This Saturday

My wife and I were planning to go, until we thought about a few things...

The Orchestra's concert was rained out downtown. No fireworks. People want their fireworks. So they will go on Saturday, no matter the cost or the hassle.

Edgewater has become extremely popular since its spiffing-up. So has the new beach house. Construction on the Shoreway has made access extremely difficult, especially on weekends. The Shoreway backs up for a considerable disatance. Forget using 73rd Street. it's closed for repairs and upgrades--until wintertime.

There were huge backups on the holiday weekend. The whole park, along with Whiskey Island, had to be closed until the traffic thinned out. Whiskey Island, too. Everyone wanted to see the fireworks. Hey, it's the Fourth, goddammit!

A lot of people remember going there in the Nineties for the Fourth. They still do. They would camp out and stay there all day, and leave Woodstock-size piles of trash, after getting there at sunrise. That is going to happen again.

And even on non-holidays, there is only one way in and out of the Edgewater parking lot. Which fills up rapidly.Ask anyone who goes to Edgewater Live on Thursdays. It's a zoo.

The music sounds great. So does the party. And so does the fireworks. But this is going to start as early as hel...like the night before...l and end in a logistical nightmare.

. You will have two, three, four Edgewater Lives. Maybe five or six. The crowd is going to be immense. And of course, somebody...or several somebodies...will probably refuse to leave their guns at home.

Nope. It's off to Berea for me, to watch Erin Go Braghless at the Irish Fest. So be it.

Just a heads-up. Don't say you weren't warned.

Good luck, Cleveland cops and park rangers. You will need it.

Re: “Here is What "nuCLEus" Actually Means

Stark is 20 years too late with his "global Cleveland" concept. Globalization is SO 20th Century -- has Stark even heard of Brexit? Stark is clueless... except when it comes to stealing $$$ from the poorest schoolchildren in the country -- that is his area of expertise.

Re: “An Amazon Fulfillment Center Could Bring Life Back to Former Randall Park Mall Site

This has nothing to do with the public and there's no reason the Port Authority should help out with the financing.

The proposal is a massive puzzle piece to be slotted into the area.

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: “Scene's Ale Fest Rescheduled to Saturday, August 5

So I guess we can apply the same lie you told about the AP awards moving because of low ticket sales. Which was not the truth. But you know that.

Re: “Here is What "nuCLEus" Actually Means

What's with the snarky attitude, Sam? I felt like I was reading a sulking teenager's diary instead of an "article..." (I think).

Take your negativity to another city and find yourself another career.

Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

Two quotes from the article above.

"If we value free expression and the civil exchange of ideas, then we are called on to embrace and practice these values inclusively, not selectively," wrote Moulthrop."

And

"But that particular position was greeted with skepticism by Subodh Chandra, a City Club member, Wednesday morning. He agreed in principle with Moulthrop's invocation of free speech ideals, but reminded Moulthrop and listeners that the First Amendment protects citizens from government infringement on their free speech rights"

Moulthrop talks about free expression, and Chandra instantly flips this to a free speech is a government thing so he can try and make his point. Then the press now takes off and runs with that instead of calling Chandra out for his intellectually dishonest tactics.

The real issue here is that the left consistently attacks these speakers and tries to suppress them because they disagree. We see it here in this situation, and we see it time and again on campuses across the nation.

And then, as evidenced by some of the comments above, they jump the shark and start the whole Nazi, Hitler and/or Racist thing. The right isn't much better, but the left has certainly become masters at this game.

Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

It's like this.

I would like to speak at the City Club. Will they put me on the schedule? No. Are they suppressing my free speech? No.

Therefore, giving Lewandowski a platform to spew lies and bigotry is not a requirement for the City Club (or anyone else) to be "in favor of free speech."

Re: “Wooden Pallets and Great Coffee Find a Home at Lakewood's La Maison Palette

Wael and Kyra are gracious, personable hosts and their products are amazing. The article did not mention that they are also supporters of local artists and invite visual arts and performances to their welcoming shop. They host our west side edition of the Cleveland Improv Jam every other Tuesday at 7pm and we can usually get Wael to join in while Kyra side coaches him!

Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If youre really in favor of free speech, then youre in favor of freedom of speech for precisely the views you despise. Otherwise, youre not in favor of free speech.

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.

(read between the convoluted lines)

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.
