"NO SONG.. BUT LET'S TRY AGAIN"
Lets see if I can spend a week at home without ending up at a hospital?
First let me thank the professional Painesville EMT's that took care of me Thursday March 9, 2016 there professionalism shown through that night, as well as the wisdom to bypass Tri-Point and deliver me directly to Lake West. As a citizen of this city ALL of our safety forces are exemplary and if it's something we can be proud of. Again Thank-You.
First off no matter what I still get calls.
Is anyone aware of a suspected shooting suicide in a dugout down in Recreation Park this past week?
WE don't even have to know the who or the why only to put speculation to bed.
Another one getting some attention is the situation of being told one of our city council people no longer lives in the city? Seems one person is attempting to follow this person home? Now the person following my whereabouts should "stalk" this council person as to their residence?
And to finish with the crazy story of the week.
This council we have passes some crazy ordinances, I've watched them in action. Rental properties seems to garner a lot of concerns. Recently I was informed of a city resident who received a fine for being late reregistering a rental property. The fine $250.00. Now if this person had ignored the city to register his rental property in the first place and the city became aware of this fact the fine $125.00? I don't know what the reasoning here is and I am sure council will be able to explain it. Damn even Jesse James used a gun! This city sometimes passes laws without thinking of the consequences and then wonder why no one wants to live here? Would a letter reminding or questioning the non-payment been to much to ask for? When I first heard this I thought it was a bad joke and then learning a person on council paid a $500.00 fine and this person voted for this ordinance just proves council might not be aware what the administration proposes. Let the city take you to court. Maybe the ninth circuit will block it. Paying this off is stupidity plain and simple.
Everyone's trying to get into our pockets!
Again the Republicans in our Statehouse want to take over collection of all Ohio city income taxes. Changing the payment from monthly to quarterly. Think of it as getting a paycheck 26 times a year and changing it to four times a year. Would pretty much screw up how you would pay bills. Of course the state would charge a fee for the collection (another bureaucracy) I thought they were all about smaller government? Anyone have a good reason to change this?
Seriously, can anyone explain to me why Painesville City Schools Spring Vacation was the week of March 12 thru 18? What was the reasoning behind this?
R.I.P. D.G. great memories
