Sorry, no featured properties currently.
So let's get this straight - the "news" media keeps revisiting Trafficant's accident, bringing out perhaps one new detail or perhaps just rehashing the old, milking the story for all it's worth. Then that same media claims Trafficant is still generating controversy. No, if the media would let the poor man rest in peace, there would be no more "controversy." There's none anyway, save what they're trying to invent to keep people reading.
Let it (and him) go, already!!!

And WHY are there only 3 black cops in Ferguson? Please tell us - how many minorities passed the entrance test to be a cop? How many even applied? Please stop giving us only the carefully selected, agenda-driven tidbits!

Ytownnative and others, why should they go to the private sector? The days of the good insurance coverage are long gone.
Maybe a piddling 1% raise against uncontrolled new expenditures isn't a good deal. Nobody's taking it.

Oh, what a conundrum for the public-employee-haters out there! Should the cities, townships, and villages lay off their workers so they can afford to buy the road salt? Maybe the workers will work for free and clear the roads. Oh, wait, that's illegal. How is this going to play into the bean-counters' "live within your means" demands? This sort of situation is why those who have absolute rules and want to run things like a tight-fisted business shouldn't be making decisions for public service.
Kudos to the public officials who had the foresight to see this price-gouging coming.

Adding years on to a death sentence is worse than a useless waste of the court's time and MONEY. If the punishments handed down are to be a deterrent, adding years of incarceration to a death sentence adds no deterrent. Here's what WOULD work: Instead of adding years, take away appeals. You take a guard hostage, you forfeit an appeal, and are one step closer to being put down.

Why does the city always make cuts to balance the budget on the backs of the fire department?

Whatever happened to voting on Election Day? Or if you can't get out to vote on that day, voting by mail? I mean, everybody gets mail. Mail isn't a socioeconomic issue.
I'd like to know how many people who choose to vote in person, early, would suffer a hardship if they had to wait until Election Day (Nov. 4 this year). Waiting in line is NOT a hardship.

You want to maintain the stability and character of a neighborhood? Get rid of rentals - especially those with out of town and out of state landlords. Nothing changes a neighborhood for the worse like having rental houses in the middle of it.

You want to see congestion? Just wait for 5 Points to be closed for several months, and people clog the "alternative routes."
If these things work so well, why don't they put one in Canfield, say at 224 and Fairground Blvd, to more effectively handle the Fair traffic? The rest of the year, it would be a breeze getting through there, right?

I've had a near-wreck already in the Sheridan roundabout. A 20-ish bimbo with her cell phone screwed firmly into her ear decided she had the right of way entering the intersection from the north, and came very close to hitting me as I proceeded through it having entered from the east. I blew the horn, and she stopped at the last second. I could see her in my mirror still sitting there, long after it was clear for her to go.
Perhaps what's needed is signs reading "Yield to traffic already in the intersection" or something.
I still say this is a $700,000 answer to a $60,000 problem.
