"MY HOMETOWN" bruce springsteen


Now Main streets whitewashed windows and vacant stores
Seems like there ain't nobody wants to comedown here no more. 

My Hometown?
 Police Chief " retires".?
Council Meeting For & Against 413?
People crying at the meeting, others wearing stupid hats and T-shirts for/against 413?
Here's a hint you are no more patriotic by wearing our flag as clothing in fact it disrespects the flag.

The police has had the same policy for over ten years "1" person deported in last five years?

It's a Painesville Council Meeting not a Township, Lakewood, Mantua, Perry,  Kirtland meeting. Painesville resident should be the only ones who speak at the meetings. I don't care about who cried and the reason they cried.  Along with who came from out of town for what ever reason.

Let's ask someone who was shot on the bike trail how they feel? Or a family member of the woman shot and killed in Concord? Send the Priest to visit them. If you are here illegally expect the consequences.

The reports I heard about was EVERYBODY was for the illegals? They weren't the Plain Dealer lied. Three meetings are enough Bulls**t on this subject .

Councilman resigns? Can't find a suitable house in his Ward or the city. Moving to Concord still wants to keep his finger in the pot. If Mr. DeLeone isn't getting his electric power at his residence in Concord from Painesville Power, sorry Mike you don't belong on our Electric Committee . You can still run for Judge. No better reason for Judge Cicconetti to live forever! Just the view of a man not in control of all his faculties? Right Michael?

While on that subject what is a "Hometown" boy? Where you born and raised here? Go to school and church here? Please explain?

Now we must deal with a dog hit by a car and the actions of an officer? Trust me  that officer has dealt with worse than a dead dog, they all have.
Also get ready to deal with the Dog Park issue.

Just blowing off some steam, Sorry!. Remember from a man losing his faculties.

Troubled times had come to my hometown.

Do what they say, say what they mean

Monday nights council meeting ;
The agenda looks nothing like the City Manager's Report? A tale of two cities?

Yes we still have the  animal issue tabled?

Rental Dwelling issue is to be addressed as well as vacant property

S-1 property to M-1 The Marijuana Plant Building / Dog kennel/ truck terminal ECT.

That dog and pony show better known as our future Electric Committee is on third reading. Still looking for people to agree on screwing us I guess?

#9 and #10 are interestingly worded?

A Resolution Declaring the amount of taxes that may be raised by levy at the maximum rate authorized by law without a vote  of the electors to be insufficient , and declaring the necessity to renew the levy three (3.0) mill tax in excess of the Ten (10) mill limitation for the purpose of general construction and reconstruction, resurfacing and repair of streets, roads, bridges and appurtenances thereto, and declaring an emergency.
In other words they want renewal levies for the road and fire department.

#11 item is the one WOW!

Resolution- a Resolution Imposing a Temporary Moratorium on Medical Marijuana Retail Dispensary Facilities within the City of Painesville. And Declaring An Emergency.

WTF ... So in the City of Painesville you can grow cultivate, process and ship Medical Marijuana but you just can't sell it?

There is a simple solution.... Find someone who wants to sell Medical Marijuana. They go visit our Economic Development Department ask them if they have any unused city property they own, offer to purchase it from them. Zoning issues as well as procedures and the like be damned. and our city father's and mother's along with our administration will grease the skid's for you!
WA-La you have a retail Medical Marijuana Store.

In my whole life.... This whole issue and the people involved are the most hypocritical bunch I have ever witnessed!

"EXPRESS YOURSELF" charles wright

You don't need help from nobody  else
All you got to do now
Express Yourself

In a past Post I asked if anyone could explain the rational about being against Policy 413 sorry, no comer's. Many have shown support for the policy. I even started a Post against 413 but truthfully it made little sense to me. So this one commenter expressed better than I could the thoughts this subject. 

The views expressed are those of the writer

This is an open forum so anyone opposed to 413 will be given the same consideration.

So lets see... Policy 413, which Chief Anthony Powalie has imitated, lays out guidelines for investigating  and enforcing immigration laws. It says that Painesville police will notify I.C.E. when a suspected illegal immigrant is affiliated with any gang or criminal organization and/or receives any drug or violence charges. So now comes here comes Don Denny, owner of Enterprise Title Agency, Sister Dolores Milula and others against it. Really? Against getting illegal criminals out of our country and out of our city? Away from me, my children and grandchildren? Away from our friends, relatives, acquaintances and citizens of our city and country whom they may hurt? REALLY? And now we have a stupid letter from the A.C.L.U. threatening our city and our city and our police chief. Really? Are you kidding me? And we have people from other cities, who will not be living alongside these criminals come into our city to try to tell us not to do this. Really? Are you kidding me? The ridiculousness of these people, and the danger they represent to our city and to our country is almost beyond belief to me. Asinine people making asinine demands. Use your brains people, and stop jeopardizing my country.

It would also appear to me, based on Don Denny's objection that most of the people buying houses in this city must be illegal, and thereby supporting Mr. Denny's title agency, must be illegal. Great. That's just great. That has so many implications, I won't even try to go into here. And if the Catholics (I, too, am Catholic, but use the brain God gave me) have objections to us getting criminals away from our families based on Bible verses, then I say quit using God to allow people to break our laws. God surely knows, more than anyone else (remember The Ten Commandments?), that there are rules to follow, and wants us to follow them. Using Him to attempt to keep dangerous, evil people-- people who do not even belong in this country--among us, is absolutely shocking to me. And I do have my suggestions as to where Elizabeth Bonham can put all her future ridiculous, dangerous letters from the A.C.L.U., but since I mentioned that I am Catholic, I won't disgrace the church by saying where that is. Bonham will just have to use her imagination. That would be the same imagination that she used to write that ridiculous, dangerous letter to our police chief.

Girl's in their summer clothes!

Picnic's and Cookouts!

A great day at the beach!

Let's take a small amount of time to remember some other American's days at their beach

I'm talking ;


Beaches in the north of France a place called Normandy

Least we forget


in Italy

And in the Pacific

The island hopping

Iwo Jima

These beaches and many more American troops have stormed, as you could have your day at the beach.

We owe them so much, please remember them not just Monday but everyday.

Never let our young forget what so many have sacrifice. These Americans gave all  for us!

In the history of the world no country can ever claim a greater military.

God Bless America

There's no escape from the music
In the whole damn street


Today's News-Herald;

Ohio ACLU sends letter to police over immigration policy

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio sent a letter to our police department to discontinue a new policy the ACLU says "invites blatant and unlawful racial profiling.

This 413 policy states police will notify U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement when a suspected illegal immigrant is affiliated with a gang or criminal organization and/or receives any drug or violence charge.
This is the part I love.
"This policy makes the entire Painesville community- especially it's many immigrant families-Less safe."

Will someone explain that to me. Do we now want to harbor violent criminals?

So who's the bad guy? Simple Painesville Police Chief Powalie, damned if he does and damned if he don't.

First PPD are not going to be running the streets asking to see anyone 'papers' only if a crime is committed will identification will be asked for.

As I mentioned in an earlier post of those 16 people that spoke at the council meeting not a one suggested a solution or what exactly they wanted the police to do? Does the ACLU?

So if Chief Powalie should ignore 413 and an innocent resident should be injured or worse killed he will be then somewhat held responsible for the incident. " You had him and you didn't report him, what kind of fool are you?" This could have all been avoided. Hindsight.

No our chief is in a no win situation, I hope he doesn't believe council will have his back? Myself I believe he will get thrown under the bus.

So to those 40 or so people who showed up at the council meeting give us a plan, a solution what exactly would you like the police to do with a criminal who isn't even supposed to be here, truthfully explain yourselves, teach us.


A Letter from Painesville Police Chief Anthony Powalie

The perception of this policy and the letter from the ACLU has caused people to believe this policy is something that it's not.

It is a post-arrest procedure , not a pre-arrest racial profiling.


In other words if you are in this city and are an illegal immigrant DON'T be involved in a felony, a drug incident or gang activity.

" 25 OR 6 TO 4" chicago

Wondering how much I can take
Should have tried to do some more

Recently someone asked how does a $25.00 fee become a $3,000 fine?

Now although I sat and listened to the conversation it's seem's I thought I must be the only one here that doesn't know? So I asked the city for a short explanation I  could understand.


The City of Painesville implemented the Rental Registration Ordinance in 2009 as a result of recommendations from the Housing Task Force.

Now a person purchases 12 of the 21 condominiums. As such they, they also become the majority owner and control the Homeowner's Association (HOA) Because each condominium is parceled out and its own separate building/structure, each is considered a separate dwelling.  When the owner purchased the dwelling they registered them with the City of Painesville within 60 days of taking ownership as required in the  ordinance. They also attended the Rental Training which teaches best practices for landlords. All property owners are required to renew their rental registration.

The Ordinance requires any property that was previously registered to register within a timely manner (by 02/15/17) as stated in the letter. If timely renewal of the previous registration didn't occur, it would be $250.00. This is per dwelling charge. Since 12 separate condominiums, the charge was 12 X $250 = $3,000 =$25 (initial registration fee) =$3,025.00.

Now the Housing Task Force felt that it should only be a $100.00 per dwelling for someone who was not aware of the program and requirements of registering every 3 years on 02/15/17.

For any property that was previously registered but timely renewal of the previous registration did not occur, ($250.00)

Hey everyone hates the landlord good bad no different.  It's easy to go after them.

Problem here is the city being shortsighted?  Going back to the most important question;

"How does this make Painesville a better place?"

If they are made to pay the fine that's probably $3,000 that won't go into improvements of say surveillance camera's? or just sprucing the location up.

And where goes this $3,000 dollars?

I sat in listened to the Housing Task Force meeting and never did I get the impression the any of this was to enrich the city. I know of at least two landlords on that Task Force who would have never approved of this.

I guess the question remains is, is this the recommendation of the Task Force OR is it the recommendation of the administration under the guise of the Task Force?
That's a big difference.

You think this may seem a little bazaar ? Wait until you hear the facts of how our beloved City and it's treatment of Mr. Rock a 90 year-old WWII veteran.

"ILLEGAL ALIEN " genesis

Consideration for your fellow man
Wouldn't hurt anybody, sure fits in my plan
Over the border there lies the promise land

Visitor time at the council meeting;

At least 40 people attended to voice disapproval to Painesville's adopted police policy about when to notify ICE officials about foreigners at odds with the law.

Now these people were organized, There was also no more than two Hispanics no children. These were Caucasian people voicing there thoughts I counted at least 16 that came to the podium with pre written short statements. This included city resident's as well as out of the area and a Nun. Myself stay in your city please don't come here and tell us how to run Painesville?

Look I understand their point but the police have a job to do in this city.

Under the policy, issued by Chief Powalie, Painesville will call ICE about any foreigner charged with a drug offence or violent crimes, including domestic violence and driving while impaired. Also any foreigner found affiliated with gangs or other group's. Seems very reasonable

Now I understand and can sympathize with there cause.  I do not see this policy as unreasonable or having anything to do with profiling?

As they came to the podium , I kept thinking of that woman who was brutally raped  shot and left for dead as well as the woman on the bike trail that was shot in front of her children. What if anything could have prevented this? This is the result of an illegal Painesville resident. These people should have to face the families of these victims and explain their feelings to them.

Immigration is a federal problem. But I ask what should the Painesville Police do with a violent  criminal? No answer to that was  given. no solution at all.

Elections have consequences and one of these will be stricter border policies. That's just fact.

Since  believe most of these people were Catholic as I am one question?  Do you elect a Congressman  who is pro-life and anti- immigrant or one that is pro-choice but also pro-immigrant? 
It's a dilemma for all of us.

Let us remember we all have Hispanic neighbors the ones I know respect everyone as well as take pride in their property. It never occurred to me to question their legality.

Well that took up the first hour of the council meeting.
