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

The person that had their tweet featured is ridiculous. They can't even speak proper English and want to decide the fate of someone else, LOL. Anifta should be the one "taking outta the gene pool", LOL.

Seems like a lot of this article has not been thoroughly researched and much is opinionated, also by giving this guy a platform to his hatred and his attacks on gays, Muslims and blacks. This sounds more like a promotion of the man than it is an exposure. Where are your priorities Scene?

This guy has literally physically attacked people, and you're not only giving him a platform, you're assassinating the character of people trying to stop him from physically attacking gays and muslims. I've always expected better from you, Vince Grzegorek.

"He described questionable interactions he'd had with "groups of young men" who he said "looked like they were up to no good."

"Are you talking about black people?" Scene asked"

You people are despicable.

Any suggestion that Antifa is dangerous is ridiculous. They get bad press, but their entire purpose is to fight fascism.

An article about Antifa and how dangerous they are might be more appropriate.

This is infuriating and another example of how poorly run the court systems are. There is zero accountability or regard for people being tortured in this system. Innocent people sit in prison every single day. The people of the court need to be held accountable, corrupt police officers, detectives, and so forth need to be held accountable. Thank goodness for the Innocence Project - especially the Ohio innocence project. Looking into people like Michele Yezzo and such. Who single-handily has taken away people's lives in favor of fabricated evidence to suit the needs of the police.

Re: “A Grieving Father Helped Bring a New Model of Fighting Heroin Addiction to Summit County, and It Might Change Everything

I would
like to offer what knowledge and experience I have come to understand about
addiction. Although I was never exposed to illegal narcotics I too know of
family and friends who were and/or still are today. Back in 1990 {when I
first moved away from home to pursue a Master's in Public Administration at
the University of Akron} I had the occasion to observe a lecture that
completely changed my life. It was a broadcast on WVIZ of John Bradshaw and
his series "On the Family." In essence his message is that children are
shame-based from a early age and retain this internal belief about
themselves throughout their lives. They inherit this from the family
systems that begat their parent, grandparents etcetera in what amounts to
{metaphorically} as the "sins of the fathers passed to the third and fourth
generation." Not only did I watch the entire series but all the rest as
well. The books brought even more clarity.

The theory helps one trace back the sources of their internal shame and
forces them to ask the question: is there really something wrong with me or
did someone just tell me I was {over and over again}. Bradshaw's concept is
not about blame but rather assigning responsibility because your parents and
their parents all fell victim to this self perpetuating system that
accentuates a belief that I am a mistake {shame} instead of I made a mistake
{guilt}. I believe this is one of the root causes for addiction not just to
heroin but as Bradshaw relates "any mood altering experience with life
damaging consequences." Think of the plethora of those that exist today.
In other words heroin is not the only addiction plaguing our society but
rather is a symptom of the sine qua non common denominator to all
addictions; a shame-based belief that there is something fundamentally
flawed about me to the point where I don't like being me so I addict myself
to something so I don't have to be the real me. Ultimately it is through
embracing the pain of being deceived that you will finally set yourself
free. This is difficult but can be done although it is a life-time
commitment. After one finally comes to terms with their own demons can they
truly say "Get behind me, Satan



PS: In the final analysis it all comes down to a person not liking who they
are so they seek an escape {albeit a temporary one} in order to avoid being
who they are. The question before the entire world is this: how do we as a
human race change this self perception in those who seek out
any mood altering experience with life damaging consequences?"

Re: “A Grieving Father Helped Bring a New Model of Fighting Heroin Addiction to Summit County, and It Might Change Everything

People on both sides of this issue ("the druggies deserve to die" and "these drug users are poor victims") can agree on one thing. The current situation is out of control and many radical things needs to be done, from dramatically increasing jail sentences for drug dealers to a massive expansion of drug treatment centers.

Fortunately for me, none of my friends or their families have been struck with this curse. But after viewing that map, I now know what killed my neighbor last year.

Re: “A Brave Never Tells

I watched a boy vomit, and another get diarrhea from the potion. With no bathroom in sight. Why in world adults are making scouts drink bitter potion is beyond me. Nothing to do with scouting in my book. Hard to believe it is still allowed. This ritual stains a good camp in my view.

Re: “Decoding the Cleveland Prestige Machine

Much of the country thinks of the Midwestern states, except for maybe Chicago, as just "flyover country". I've found lots to like in several of those states, and I firmly believe that Ohio has one of the strongest offerings among them as far as tourism. But without strong promotion, then it's going to be tough to get the word spread. You need people to say good things about you, because it is absolutely true that there's always plenty wrong with any area. And Cleveland and even just Ohio in general have taken a lot of blows to the face over the last 50 years.

Which is why it is such a joke to divert dollars away from tourism promotion to refurbish an arena. We know the Cavs will eventually suck again, but all of our restaurants and breweries and hotels will still be here...and the money and goodwill they generate stays local much more than a winning sports franchise.

It never ceases to amaze me how short-sighted and small-thinking civic leaders are here. That $44 million could help to attract some serious revenue to the city over the years. But instead of investing in marketing the region, they're squandering it on a glass cathedral because the church promised to fund their political career.

As a Filipino this all breweries are very new to me. And it seems exciting to taste. But the question is, it is a price friendly?
