  1. "The numbers tell a striking story that this president is not simply a polarizing figure, but a radicalizing one," says Heidi Beirich, director of the SPLC's Intelligence Project. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/hate-groups-us-all-time-high-splc-1.5026524

  3. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2019 Ohio City mixed use project may feature downtown ad firm An exciting mixed-use development is in the works for the Hingetown section of Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood, according to multiple sources. Although still in a preliminary stage, the development's concept at this point involves putting the offices for a fast-growing downtown company on the lower floors of a new building with apartments on the upper floors. Two sources say the site is 2828 Clinton Ave., the current location of one of the region's most well-known and oft-photographed businesses -- the 94-year-old Cleveland Vibrator Company which will relocate from the site. The downtown company seeking to move to the site is The Adcom Group, a full-service marketing and communications firm, according to two other sources.

  4. Yes. Under federal law, someone other than the federal government must provide the operating subsidy for routes of less than 750 miles. And regardless of route length, Amtrak believes it is not legally allowed to expand service if it adds to its operating subsidy requirements -- unless someone other than the federal government pays. Worse, Amtrak doesn't initiate new services on routes it doesn't own. So if a region, state or group of states want a new train or more trains, they have to go to Amtrak and purchase service from them as well as pay for $500 million liability insurance (costs upwards of $2 million per year) and any added track capacity that ensure the existing/future freight services are not negatively impacted by the addition of the passenger rail service.
  5. While probably too good to be true, I'm hopeful that a dozen people or more, including Individual-1, all get indicted simultaneously.
  6. I think many of you will be pleased with the recommended developer (a local company) and especially the architect (a global firm). While I don't know what their plans are, I would be very surprised (and disappointed) that this would be just a row of pricey townhouses, given the team involved. And you may find just as interesting who one of the rejected applicants was. If you want to learn more or share your opinions on whether this site should be developed, I encourage you to go to the Duck Island Block Club meeting on March 5 at 6:30 p.m. at Forest City Brewery.
  7. So the Mueller report may be delivered as early as next week?? I hope Mueller is careful, right down to a food taster. Desperate criminals like Spanky, with connections to known foreign assassins, are like venomous snakes and are likely to resort to desperate acts.
  8. I don't know enough about St. Clair-Superior but I do think the area of Lake Avenue between Detroit Avenue and Clifton Blvd is where I'd be investing. It's a short gap between a stable area and a growing area.
  9. What's troubling about Amtrak's new plan is that Amtrak isn't going to reapportion its federal $$ to "give" trains to parts of the country like Ohio that should have better rail service. The shorter routes of 750 miles or less, under the US Passenger Rail Investment & Improvement Act of 2008, **require** the states to fund them, not the feds. So if states that don't have decent service because they don't fund it (not because the state doesn't have corridors deserving of multiple daily trains) continue to not fund it, that means they lose their token long-distance train and don't get anything to replace it....

  11. That's one of the benefits of the East 55th/lakeshore area, as the neighborhood just south of the tracks is more stable/better than areas east of there. As for the lakefront north of the tracks west of East 55th, the neighborhood south of the tracks isn't a neighborhood. It's just a bunch of old warehouses, including some cool brick buildings that are possible candidates for conversion to residential, live-work, co-working and incubators.
  12. You should write an op-ed or a letter to the editor.

  14. Not the best photo quality but it shows you just how incredibly dense the industry was and how much it pushed up against what was then the 4-track main line of the Pennsylvania railroad linking Cleveland with Alliance/Youngstown and on to Pittsburgh or Southeast Ohio and the East Coast.
