  1. ^ https://www.cleveland.com/community/2019/06/cleveland-heights-turns-over-small-city-parking-lot-for-expansion-to-aid-top-of-hill-construction-schedule.html ^^ Generally I agree with @Htsguy, but I am OK with adding retail at Cedar/Fairmount and the Lee/Meadowbrook lots as it is filling in gaps in strong existing districts. Severance should be redeveloped, but we don't need to create a new retail district. If not all residential, the challenge with bringing non-retail commercial to the site is on the one hand the one thing I like about C.H. but bad for business attraction - our lack of highway access. Some other thoughts I have on C.H. The former Coventry school was sold to the library for $1 who now lease it out to non-profits and other users. I'm all for having a non-profit center in the city, but frankly that shouldn't be the location. We are essentially subsidizing the non-profits by getting no taxes on that property. It's valuable land in that location. I'm all for subsidizing non-profits, just not there. The city owns 1 of the tudor buildings on S Taylor N of Cain Park and will acquire the other 2 due to back taxes (I think). These building have functionally obsolete retail. This retail should be repurposed as a non-profit center for the city.
  2. Speed is more important than accuracy?? Sure. Well I guess over 24 hours to write that speech was too fast to get this out. But sure, let's keep placing the blame elsewhere...it's not Trump's fault he misspoke, it's Twitter culture. It's not the easy access to weapons of war that are causing these mass shootings it's video games or the media.
  3. @Ram23 Trump must have said Toledo on purpose, right?
  4. Too bad it's the same governor who was previously tweeting about how Texans should be buying more guns.
  5. It’s not a mental health issue. It’s radicalization from the far right, starting with Trump and enabled by Portman, Cruz, McConnell etc. Not a mental health issue.
  6. Wow. What a hero for being silent.
  7. Camped last Wednesday night. Was going to go to Mohican, but the river level was too high for tubing, so stayed closer to home. Went here instead, adjacent to CVNP. http://heritagefarms.com/campsites Pretty nice spot close to Cleveland. The guy told me his family has had the land for about 170 years I think. The Park asked them about 4 years ago to offer camping as there aren't enough sites in the Park. Surprisingly, only 3 sites we occupied.

    Yes and they've been shamed for it?!?!? But you haven't answered my question, why don't you post anything about racism against minorities, ONLY racism against whites. Or does racism only exist against white people?

    Well said. It is embarrassing and @Ram23 you are an embarrassment of a human being. Pretty sure I've pointed out before that in this forum you've never posted white on minority racism. Oh and @Ram23 I don't suppose either of these incident are ACTUAL racism: https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/08/us/arizona-rap-music-killing-trnd/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/09/us/san-francisco-police-called-on-black-man-trnd/index.html
  10. Yup! My sister and brother-in-law! Nice to hear the positive feedback @Htsguy! I’m obviously biased but my favorite place in town. They put out a great product in an awesome environment and treat their employees well... as to the comment on the booths, they just had them redone so glad to hear that feedback too.

    Yeah, my ulterior motives are compassion and empathy.

    ^ While not very attractive, that's actually quite common around the Cleveland area at least.
  13. I was fresh out of college, looking for a career in real estate but had no experience and naively didn't really know how to find a job or what exactly I wanted to do. My aunt knew him and setup a meeting for me with him. I don't recall much about it besides his office. He was gracious with his time and after we met for a while, he sent me to talk to another executive. Nothing came out of it, but it was nice of him to take the meeting. One thing - I didn't get a "gift" that people always talked about!
