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

If a member of council has moved out of the city, I hope it inspires more of them to follow suit.

I was told half the landlords in Painesville aren't even registered. Is that true?

Mentor schools were on spring break March 13 through 17 as well. I don't see the issue.

In mentor the school breaks come at the end of a quarter. Winter break at the end of second quarter and spring break at the end of third quarter (they were last week as well).

Because that will allow a second vacation over the Easter holiday?

8:33 They will get Good Friday as well as the Monday after Easter.
5:40/3:51 Well it's a quarter break? Spring didn't start until this Monday. But it's not a Spring break.
8:23 I have no idea? And it appears our wonderful inspectors wish to only go after low hanging fruit? Can you imagine the fine to fail to reregister is twice the fine to not even registering? What a council.

What about the fatal shooting of a Painesville teen in Collinwood? Back in February yet and still nothing in the NH at all. Had to really look to find out about it on the Cle. sites.

It appears Mike Deleone's home is for sale? Is that what you are talking about?

7:06 Should help with the city's income tax.
3:14 This is a surprise? I'll have to drive by is there a for sale sign? He may move out of Painesville but he will stay in the Painesville Muni Court jurisdiction. Mike wasn't the person they told me about.
11:54 I haven't heard about this?

Painesville Muny Court jurisdiction covers the entire eastern end of Lake County. From the Mentor/Painesville line to the Ashtabula County line.
