Readers sound off on Chad Zumock's new column and more

On: "Chad Zumock's Adventures in Argyle"

Trying for DUI number 3? Boring article you failed comic.

On: "New Indian Trevor Bauer Releases Diss Track About Former Teammate"

Wow. This is beyond awful. Hopefully his pitching is better than his rhymes.

Jim Kamlowsky

Starting to understand why Arizona decided he was available.

On: "Federal Charges Filed After Youngstown Companies Dumped Fracking Waste"

Unfortunately the bureaucracy of the this whole system of ours sometimes has a tendency of preventing agencies such as ODNR and EPA/etc from taking immediate action. It's good to see progress being made. Hopefully this will create more momentum for policy to safeguard our environment during the frack process.

As a gay Clevelander, I am disappointed. I always felt that Cindy Barber was a brilliant entrepreneur as well as a neighborhood and live entertainment booster. Now, it's obvious that she views some of us as less than others. Doesn't sound like "sex, drugs and rock n' roll" to me. The community should not have tolerated this display which, obviously, would be hurtful to many of their friends and family.


On: "Local Photographer Offers Inside Look at Fifth Church of Christ Scientist"

These old masterpieces are a part of our heritage and can never be replaced. Once it's gone, it's gone forever. Communities built these buildings as a testament of who they were for future generations to know them.

Are we really willing to trade that for a grocery store / parking lot and call that progress?

It's a mess inside but if it were to be redone, it would all be gutted anyway. Reuse is always difficult but the cultural enrichment it brings to society makes it worth it. More should be done to save it for the next generation if we are too near sighted to save it for ourselves.


I totally agree. It is essentially impossible now to construct a new building with the same substance of materials and the same attention to detail as is found in these gems of our architectural past. Saving those whose basic structure is still sound is imperative in my mind. They can never be replaced!
