Fortune Magazine gives CLE backhanded compliment

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 12/29/2013 - 03:44.

Fortune Magazine recently predicted that the market in NEO - will make Cleveland the "next" Brooklyn - break out real estate.  

Don't get too excited - the editors apparently don't know the difference between Columbus and Cleveland - their feature photo shows Columbus:

TY CLE - Perpetuate the Second Class - Parasitism

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 10:27.

 Thank you to my neighbors who voted in the same crud who perpetuate the cycle of abandonment and parasitism we live with in NEO.  Federal funds can't pour into a region unless there is an entrenched class of citizens deemed "second class."  

Well - this is our future - warehousing our elderly and the offspring of any child considered less fortunate because they had the misfortune to be labeled "Urban."

Good luck with your investment strategies!!!

VOTE Lanci for Mayor of Cleveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 08:07.

 Hello Residents of the City of Cleveland - you do have a choice.  

Please rid us of the corrupt "it is what it is..." mentality.  Get RID of Frank Jackson and Martin Sweeney - vote for transparency and accountability (at least there is a promise of something-anything better than the STATUS QUO).

Henry Senyak's Editorial Letter to PD

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 08:24.

 I have been asked to post Henry Senyak's letter to the Plain Dealer editors - some of you may recall that Henry Senyak actually tipped WOIO Channel 19 off to the hijinks of Russo and Dimora -well BEFORE the PD even began to unravel the obvious story:

Plain Dealer editorial choices for council are again - a joke.  I can't wait to read their "endorsement" for Sweeney.  What creative spin will they use this time???

Sickening.

Drive to Broaden OPINION content at Plain Dealer

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 09/16/2013 - 09:12.

 I have posted this content to Citizen Dashboard category - in the Sunday Plain Dealer, editor Elizabeth Sullivan wants you to know that through the Northeast Ohio Media Group and the Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com (if you understand that evolution) - you have a greater opportunity to voice your opinion.

Bridge over the River Cuyahoga

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 08/05/2013 - 04:12.

Trains share the corridor  with cyclists and pedestrians on the Great Allegheny Passage.

Meanwhile, in Northeast Ohio - there is one train trestle that separates the public from our lakefront.  Not such an insurmountable obstacle!!!

Cuyahoga County - and the LOOPHOLE

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 07/27/2013 - 12:16.

Why is it that anyone with delinquent property taxes in Cuyahoga County can continue to buy additional properties?  

Would you NOT think that delinquent tax status on any property would preclude a delinquent owner from buying a property from Fannie Mae?  

Well, it just happened in my neighborhood and this time the guy didn't even bother to camouflage his name with an LLC - like good old Lucky Ogor!

Ward 14 - dirty politics in NEO

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 07/04/2013 - 09:37.

The media is largely ignoring the simmering council race in Ward 14 - focused on Eugene Miller and Jeff Johnson - another power play with Sweeney written all over it.  

But, the story on near west side is far more volatile with a history worth revisiting.  

See the historic editorials by Nelson Cintron and, at the time, Miriam Ortiz-Maldonado.

CAR-FREE Care-free- Pt IV Downtown CLE

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 07/01/2013 - 18:13.

I was going to ride my bike and take my camera – but the rain looked imminent so I skipped both.  Instead, I was dropped off downtown amidst the hustle-and-bustle of the lunch time crowd at Tower City.  My destination was RTA to pick up my 5 ride tickets.

Life in Cleaveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 06/29/2013 - 10:24.

 I had lunch yesterday with a smart, independent woman who has managed to carve out a good life for herself in Cleveland.  We are both complainers, but we both see the positives, too.  She has lived in Chicago, Toronto, and Cleveland, and of the three places, she prefers Cleveland.  Cleveland's cost of living allows her to travel to Paris - twice a year to be recharged by the energy and joie de vivre - that is uniquely French.

Mystery Contract w/Tien, Death Cloud and more $$$ used to poison CLE residents

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 06/13/2013 - 08:28.

 It became apparent last night that the Jackson administration staged this whole contract with Peter Tien for kickbacks.  It was actually apparent before last night - Jackson and his willing conspirators at Sweeney-controlled council awarded a contract to Peter Tien--a contract that defies comprehension.
