Beating the Heat

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 07/06/2019 - 16:37.

During this mini-heat wave, I am not the only person who books a hotel room to beat the heat.  Apparently, whole families cram into the rooms at the Akron Courtyard Marriott, leading the management to issue a legal waiver notifying noisy groups that they will be thrown out and forfeit their reservation deposits.

Dave Yost  - pls investigate Pontikos for tax evasion -money laundering

Atlas Real Estate Management Inc. Charter 1923731 is one of many filings at State of Ohio  - how many properties have transferred from Gus Frangos (his uncle?) through Cuyahoga County Land Bank?

Steven Pontikos then "sells" these tax cleansed properties through these shell companies.  The transaction can be recorded at a much lower price than the actual monies exchanged.

Sam Allard penned the Worst of Cleveland editorial on Cleveland City Council:

Outsiders are kept at bay by the strategic appointment of successors, and the public is kept at bay by "emergency" legislating, in which ordinances are passed on an accelerated schedule with no public comment and limited review.

Ideastream- Noble Rd Update by Nick Castele

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 04/28/2019 - 10:35.
Thank you Nick Castele for your recent coverage of the on-going crimes committed by the Cuyahoga County Land Bank.  I am sure that the timing of the upcoming trail had nothing to do with the sudden realization to provide some coverage at Ideastream.  I am writing this on Sunday - my day off from work. The HR record at my place of employment will show I have been harassed by Tony Brancatelli and Jim Rokakis for writing about the land bank and demolitions at the website Realneo.us

5707 Hege - watch the price increase.  Tony Brancatelli's bud, Chester Cuiska of North Coast Homes Inc makes a pretty penny as realtor on these property transfers, while NOT paying over $50,000 in back taxes on his rental properties in Cleveland and Newburgh Heights.  You would think some one would pick up on this special deal for friends of the Land Bank president -Tony Brancatelli.  Why do so many people with political connections get a pass on NOT paying their taxes...hmmm.
