  1. They make me want to puke, or try the chokehold on them for a change.... AND
  2. If they really want to create fiscal moats around each Ohio city, then they cut off the flow of tax dollars its citizens and businesses pay to build/maintain suburban/rural roads, provide grants/loans for suburban/rural business investments, suburban/rural social programs, and more...
  3. Ohio's daily cases continue to increase over the 7-day moving average as they have for three weeks now: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/dashboards/overview FYI Summit County alert status has increased: Because daily case counts are on the upswing again for Summit County, with spikes higher than they've been since April: https://summitcountyhealth.org/coronavirus/
  4. Good question. This definitely bears watching. Certainly the history of corporate consolidations since the 1980s has not been kind to Cleveland. But as companies have consolidated into fewer cities, the costs of living and of paying employees in those cities has gone up. We've seen a few companies recently open up or relocate to Cleveland to reduce their costs of doing business.
  5. Thanks. If they want to keep it off the record, feel free to let me know by personal messenger here at UO.
  6. THURSDAY, JULY 9, 2020 Pandemic quarantines CWRU development Construction of several residence halls at Case Western Reserve University has been put on hold indefinitely, another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fiscal uncertainties that surround it. Construction on the first phase of the $72+ million multi-phased project was due to start in early 2021. Christopher Panichi, CWRU's director of planning, design and construction confirmed today that the expansion of the South Residential Village at Murray Hill and Adelbert roads has been halted.

  7. I worked with a guy 20 years ago who grew up on the near-west side of Cleveland (Detroit-Shoreway area) when it was fading fast in the 1960s-70s. He moved to Parma. Then moved to a mcmansion with a big yard near Oberlin. He always talked about how much he like living in his old neighborhood in Cleveland, being close to everything, and then living in Parma where he had so little yard and thus so little yardwork to do. I asked him "Why don't you move back to Parma or Cleveland? I hear things are improving in Detroit-Shoreway." His reply.... "I'd move back to Parma but all of the houses in my neighborhood were too small. I'd never move back to Cleveland because of all of the 'thugs' that live there now." So he stayed in Oberlin until he died because Parma's housing stock needs updating and he refused to move to Cleveland because of his racism.
  8. That would be unfortunate. In other words, it would bring no benefit to Moab in terms of reduced traffic and air quality issues.
  9. Does this mean that Muscogee Creek Nation can apply for statehood? I know of another former territory that became a state after the territiry improperly lost its previous statehood ....

  10. What's interesting is that Rancho Cucamonga is pushing to have the rail line extended farther south along I-15 to their city, rather than terminate on the other side of the San Gabriel Mountains in Victorville. Meanwhile Palmdale wants the rail line to come to them. Both Rancho Cucamonga and Palmdale provide connections to Metrolink. But Rancho Cucamonga is more centrally located and a new transportation center proposed to be connected to the Ontario International Airport by one of Elon Musk's wonder tubes....

  11. That's pretty big for that area. One of my college buddies is from Ravenna and his family is pretty geeked about this. They've lost a lot of jobs from rubber plants closing and the GE plant closing since our college days in the 1980s, with the arsenal fading away long before that. Robinson Hospital is probably the biggest employer in Ravenna anymore.
  12. Many of them keep a car parked somewhere outside of downtown, usually near the Rapid or a bus line for use on weekends. But the person who uses their car every day spends less per mile on all the costs of car ownership/leasing and operations than the person who uses their car only on weekends. Granted, a person who uses their car only on weekends spends less in total. I know of some people who rent cars on weekends because of the good rates but they don't own their own car.
  13. I visited my doctor yesterday. He's a pretty sharp young guy who's pretty well-read on this pathogen. I was struck by his comments about how little is still known about COVID-19 and how unpredictable it is. This morning I stumbled across some physicians talking to each other on Twitter and reaffirmed how scary unknown this bug is.... And And
  14. Administration officials either don't pay attention to what they've said and done very recently or they don't care if they and you are paying attention...
  15. Thank you for the work that you do @Frmr CLEder. You are to be commended for your efforts, including those here.
  16. For such a small town, the traffic there is pretty bad. A lot of people bring their bicycles to Moab to ride the many trails into the national parks. It would be pretty easy to bring their bikes on the train or have local circulator buses (also bike equipped). There are national parks throughout the world that rely on a mix of public transit modes. It can be done. I'd extend the rail line into the center of town along the Colorado River and Mill Creek. I'd put the train station right behind the Red Rock Bakery & Cafe.

  18. We used to have to protect Amtrak from Congress. Now we need Congress to protect Amtrak from Amtrak.....
