Well it's seems something moved into Downtown?

Anybody know what the situation with the Bed Bug infestation at Washington Square? And why the
Health Department can't help?

Update; over the weekend I heard from Paul Hach and Jim Fodor  that's three counting Lori DiNallo
about my question on the Refuse contract

And say your life is through

Listen a minute what I'm telling you

Peabody Energy

Talk about being left holding the bag!

The world's largest private sector coal producer is saying they may go out of business.

Peabody Energy employs 7,600 people.

Peabody reported a loss of $2 billion last year following a $787 million loss the previous year.

Shares of Peabody, which had already plunged 98% in the past two years, tumbled nearly 50% in trading on Wednesday.

To all you 'clean coal' lover's you can presently buy a  share of Peabody Energy for $2.33 a share.

The top three coal companies in the U.S. mine the majority of their coal, as much as 88 percent of their total production, from land owned  and leased by the U.S. Federal Government.  This on top of the Federal Government has provided the coal industry with more than $70 Billion in tax breaks and subsides since 1950.

The death of coal? Well not for some time presently around 30 % of our power presently is generated from coal. But honestly the truth is in front of all of us.

The last ten month's have been the hottest in recorded history. February was the hottest ever February in recorded history.  Climate change? Are we exasperating the cause of this change?

Now the lover's of coal will blame the EPA, President Obama for the over regulated coal industries. Least we all know fracking natural gas was the sword that killed coal. What do some suggest? We stop fracking and go back to more expensive and dirtier coal. Think about it! At the same time we will hear about all the employee's of the drilling companies without jobs, who have families to feed? One this you can count on is that neither the coal companies nor the drilling companies' will keep there laborer's around "just in case." Wonder if Peabody has Recreation or Cemeteries that need work?

Ever wonder how a Painesville City employee feels riding a lawnmower and getting paid $17.00 an hour looking across the cemetery and watching a power plant employee riding the same lawnmower making $30.00+?

At the same time a Painesville taxpayer must wonder why they are paying the salary of over $30.00 to cut grass?

Wonder how this will affect the fine City of Painesville? What I'm looking forward to is the first Painesville resident who installs solar panels on there roof.

Offhand I don't believe the people in charge  at that time gave any consideration of what the final outcome of Prairie State would be? Legacy costs? What's that?

This could be the biggest election turnout in our country ever!

The problem might be the turnout would be caused by people voting against Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump!

Don't care what anyone says both are flawed candidates.

On another front could either Party pick worse chairmen? Reince Priebus and Debbie Wasserman Schultz? Talk about two people way out of their league. What leadership!

Sounds like we are more in agreement that I might have guessed.
IMO, there is only one "qualified" candidate in the running and I don't care for him or his policies. However, he has the background that NONE of the others have.
The major players, on both sides, are simply embarrassing to this country.
This is the best we can get??
It is going to be a long 4 years either way.

9:42 Well the truth is not one candidate has inspired me from either party. I fear this year I will be voting what I feel is the less of two evils? Where is the Kennedy FDR, Eisenhower even a Reagan? Nada!

I am with you on that 100%.
I simply can't wrap my arms around any of the candidates. Maybe my world doesn't exist anymore?
Things sure are different than what I was taught, and believed, in school.
A sad state we are in.

I learned a long time ago there are no perfect candidates. I will vote for the best candidate, Hillary Clinton!

1:43 Maybe we just are getting old? I have yet to see an election won by anger? The country is so divided and I don't see a candidate to unite us?

12:43 I hope everyone votes.

Warmest February on record, El Nino kept us warm. Why would my utility bill be 25.00 more than the past several? The heat was lowered and certainly didn't use water to wash the car. Did anyone else see an increase?

1:19 Don't know but I was told of a resident who had a $160.00 electric bill and a power cost adjustment of another $340.00. Making a $400.00 electric bill?
Look as long as there is no one is watching they are allowed to do as they please. And they please themselves?

Presently I am trying to put a video on the blog. of a city electric plant worker watering flowers at the corner of State in Main last summer wearing a raincoat and doing it in a downpour? Go figure what goes on around here?

Obviously, he was told to water the flowers.

Obviously Why?

I agree with 452. If someone tells you to go water the flowers and grass in a downpour while its thundering and lightening-that is what you do. With Mr. Carson in charge do NOT ask questions, you do what you are told, when you are told OR ELSE you WILL be fired. He is a very unfair and nasty boss. And he only sees things one way, his. No matter if you are 100 percent right. Jump! How high? Then do it.
