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!

Now - more than ever - the return of such indie labels is a welcoming lighthouse.

See ya. Maybe his wife and kids can join him in Mexico if the laws here are so bad. :)

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.

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: “Tenacious East Cleveland Citizen Journalist Gerald Strothers Has Died

I never met Gerald but I followed his work closely on social media. He was pretty much the only regular source of local news in East Cleveland, and a one man crusade for open and responsible government. The people of EC are definitely worse off now that his voice has been silenced.

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

This is a wonderful shop! I've not yet met Kyra, but Wael is a gracious host and the place has a great energy about it. I'm not a coffee drinker so I appreciate the tea offered!

Re: “At the All-Star break, a Conversation With Jason Kipnis on the Team's Struggles, His Struggles, and How They Can Get Back to the World Series

As someone else once said, "It's the economy, stupid..." Outside Yupsterville enclaves, folks are hurting. If you don't have a job, or have a shitty one that pays bupkis, the Indians become low-priority in your life.

It's a different world now. The days of being on unemployment and still having enough money to go to 53 games in a single season are gone. Long gone. No more four-dollar bleacher tickets and three-dollar beers and one-dollar Smokie Links. That was Wrigley in the lightless days of the early Eighties...the Reagan Era. Ancient history.Thank you, MisterDead President..

The Tribe tore out thousands of seats to create a foodie paradise, and a bar-like atmosphere for Millennials who would rather stand and schmooze and text and tweet than watch the game. Baseball isn't an essential for that crowd...they grew up playing soccer and they aren't die-hards. So that marketing plan failed. Thank you, Suits.

And the Boomer die-hard geezers are retired and are actually beginning to die off, so they are going less and less. Can't go if you are sick...or dead.

Kids and young adults just aren't into the sport the way they were even twenty years ago, let alone forty or fifty years ago. So MLB has problems attracting new blood to many struggling franchises. This will spell trouble down the road. They will try to speed up the game and add bells and whistles to make it "cool". Good luck with that noise. They will destroy baseball in order to save it.

If you can bring in food and water, then why do they do the TSA number at every game I go to? Most ballparks do not allow outside stuff, and enforce the ban strictly. it's in their "fan guides"...I have been to 19 or 20 parks myself, though many of them are now history and nearly all of them are (and were) in the Midwest...including all three in Chicago and all three in Minnesota. Things are not as loose as they used to be. Thank you, Mister Terrorist Shooter.

I don't worry about parking. I let RTA transport me there on the train. We are now one of the few cities where you have that option. Living in Chicago for almost two-thirds of my life, I got spoiled. early. I had to drive to games when I first moved here in the early Nineties, as the Rapid service stopped after 9 PM until The Jake opened. I am so glad I don't need to drive to games anymore. Thank you, RTA.

Nobody has money for games because there is still a lot of suffering here., despite all the "comeback" hype and gentrification. That's why there are so many fans disguised as empty seats, all season long. Unemployment is higher than in most other MLB cities. That's why you see fewer and fewer black faces. Also...because there are so few black players left.

The playoffs are irrelevant...it's the wealthy and the affluent suburbanites and the corporate greedheads whose asses are in the seats in October. Whole different ballgame in the post-season.

It's an embarrassment that a franchise which almost made history (after 68 years of futility) is at the bottom of the attendance stats. Maybe I'm totally "off base"...but I worked for the organization in the last days of the Stadium and the first days of the Jake...and those days...and especially the days of six straight years of sellouts...seem like a distant dream. Did we really do that? How? The economy was not so great here in those days, too. It's a puzzlement, all right.

What an awesome story of a wonderful couple who has built a coffee house from the ground floor up and all of the natural ingredients including the organic Coffee's. I cannot wait to visit and have my first cup.

I wish you guys much success in all your undertaking in future endeavors may God continue to bless you.

Truth be told -- such microphones are available to the personalities with the best list of deep-pocketed "sponsors" who will purchase tickets for the event. And the free national publicity the City Club of Cleveland will be receiving over the next several weeks is a bottom line winner.

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Wassamatta...too timid to sign up with a username? So the kids heard some four-letter words. BFD and boo fucking hoo. They probably hear worse at home and in the streets of wherever they live. Deal with it.

Obviously, the marchers had a permit to march into the square, or the city would have blocked the way with their bike cops.

And I will repeat what I said earlier...if that benighted Knight character tries to play vigilante or hee-row, especially when his friends in blue are not around, he will get a surprise he does not want or like, chain mail or no chain mail. Easy to rant and spew and play tough guy when your badge buddies can back you up. Wrong place, wrong time, wrong people, and he'll be toast. Simple facts.

And before you start pointing accusatory fingers yet again...I'm just playing Captain Obvious. This is Cleveland, not Mayberry or Lake Wobegon. It's smart not to be stupid or to act stupidly.

And no, I wasn't there...I was home mowing the lawn on Saturday. I'm getting pretty tired of marching in circles. Especially when anarchists and crazies behave the way they do--like they want to piss people off.

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

remember: 'dissenters' who don't seem to actually dissent from much other than journalism and who punch journalists are good.

dissenters who disagree with Malthroup bringing in a lame-o, violent gas bag, though are THE REAL VOICE OF INTERANCE and should go to hell.

okay sure

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.
