Re: “Matt Zone Nearly Loses His Cool at City Council Safety Meeting

Mr Stephens needs to talk with his local councilperson first. I am sure Mrs Cleveland and Mr. Conwell will be glad to listen to them. You cannot just walk into a council meeting and start screaming. If you do then council will hold private meetings and there will be no transparency. Then everyone loses. So respect the system and talk with your council person. That is why they are there.

Re: “Residents Aren't Very Good at Promoting Cleveland?

Well I agree with Donald Douglas, the streets are terrible. But if I look outside of my door right now....Yep. I am getting a new street.

Lilly Rose. I think you should get your A** out of town and never look back. Ok is she gone? I own a real estate in Cleveland and I am born and raised here and my house is worth about $115,000 and I owe $197,000. SOO if any of youz want to jack me around I think your misinformed.

About 10 kids just left my house on their way to another house a few streets over. some of the older kids went to the park nearby and some to the local ice cream shop. All of their parents feel they are safe. I did get my car broken into once and the police were pulling into my driveway before I even knew I had been robbed! So what kind of response time is that? like a negative minute and a half or so?

Yeah the neighborhood have gotten tougher. I'll admit it. Yeah I see people do things more often like stop in the middle of the street and talk. Typically reserved for lower class neighborhoods, and yeah on the way to church today I saw an "ghetto tumbleweed" which if your not from the city is a wig. There are a lot of them on the streets in the ghetto. I imagine a lot of bald woman are out there somewhere because those things are ubiquities on the east side.

But you know what? In my little Mayberry here we watch out for our neighbors. We call the councilman. (that's how I got my street) we are involved in our community. So get you A** out into your neighborhood and fight for it or get you A** out of Cleveland.

This town is on the rise and even though, like a wife I know, it pisses me off sometimes and frustrates me, it is the best thing going and I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Re: “100 Years Ago Today, All of Ohio Flooded

I am pretty sure that this is why when you sell your home, the taxes go back six months. This flood closed down all government offices for months and the taxes could not be collected. The result was that property taxes had to be collected "in arrears" so when you buy a home you get a check from the seller of the property who paid property taxes up to closing and when you purchase a home your given a check to put your taxes six months behind.

Re: “Strongsville Residents Need to Learn When It's Appropriate to Call the Cops and When It's Not

Cleveland residents call 911 when they have a headache. hemorrhoids,Keys locked in the car, the flu,anything and everything. When you see how a few firefighters have made the Cleveland fire department look bad (hint, your not being told anything remotely accurate. do you really think we make $1,000 a day? as Safety director flask stated or that firefighters didn't show up for work for years? Cmon people!) Strongsville is nothing compared to the entitlement runs Cleveland resident have. Ducks? Please. How about hearing over the radio that there are no ambulances available for four firefighters doing CPR on a full arrest patient while you are with EMS at the home of a hemorrhoids patient who "can't" drive herself to her own doctor. Someone needs to do something before more people get killed.

Re: “Government Tells Us What We Already Know: We Have More Vacant Houses

This is happening because the cities are killing ANY ability for growth. I have a $2,000 water bill that the water department cannot and will not explain, or fix. Garbage cans I have been ordered to use and a $150.00 fine if I put garbage out the night before. A street sweeper that comes only to write a ticket on my car! The city of Cleveland is attacking its residents. I purchased a vacant home to fix it up and sell to a needy family and the city wrote me up for putting a sign on the side of the home (guess they want money for hanging a sign on your own home) I am trying to fix up abandoned homes to sell lease to own for families and it seems no one is trying to help. This is fine but please don't get in the way! Close Burke and give the 1.5 million lost every year to organizations that ADD to the community or close the golf courses the city owns and use the 1.5 million lost each year to hire more police! Why is the city acting as an investor, property manager and golf course owner? Losing millions of taxpayers dollars in the process?

Re: “The Mysterious Mister Tien

As a man who prepares ideas for investment I can tell you this. Cleveland doesn't have to invest to benefit from a good idea.Maybe they are waxing moronic about Kucinich and CPP which isn't rally a good deal for us either but either way we have our priorities wrong. The city should NEVER invest more than help getting licenses and certifications. If it is such a good idea than let a group of investors put up the money and the city will benefit from eliminating garbage and cheap energy for the people of Cleveland.Who the heck brokers our money out for these deals anyway? cities need to know they are providers of services. NOT investors.I do have one idea for them. close Burke which loses 1.5 million a year. Move the 64,000 student, not commercial landings and takeoffs to other airports like Lost nation and build recreational services along the waterfront like Navy Pier, or a boardwalk like Atlantic city with casinos.
