Great view.  With that construction and public square, the only thing in picture number 1 that is upsetting are the parking lots at the top and right of the picture.  Hopefully some day will be filled with nucleus and another Jacobs building
Lets add to the hopefulness that the County can come up with funds to demolish the Justice center and build a 30-40 story mixed use tower! :drunk:....One can dream. :|

Luck?  I understand your point, but sheesh....

What better word is there for it?   Completely undeserved on his part, but he will milk it for all he can.

An illegal alien tries to rape a minor, kills a prominent citizen, and wounds another person apparently randomly. 

In a metropolitan area that has not had much of a historical immigration problem.   

That will be hosting the first GOP debate the next week.

Hell, I'm no Trump fan but he just had a piece of luck that borders on kasichian.

Victim killed in Painesville shooting is Peggy Kostelnik secretary to Willoughby Mayor.

Apparently Painesville has been a "Sanctuary City" since 2007.  This could go viral nationally if the suspect is an illegal.

Apparently there's still a lot of controversy over that. I think the city council (& city manager at the time) decreed Painesville to be a sanctuary city, basically welcoming Mexicans to move there with open arms, much to the chagrin of many residents. I can never seem to find much info online though. One website, sanctuarycities.info (one of those right wing wacko websites  :wink:), lists Columbus and P'ville as the only ones in Ohio, but there must be more. Although I once found a national list and could find no Ohio cities. Whatever the case, this is not a good story. The majority of Mexicans in there are hardworking, law-abiding citizens, but if you're here illegally, well...

There's construction scaffolding up around 33 W Fourth St (at corner of Race and Fourth). Anybody know what's going on? The building has been owned by "MMF Realty LLC" since 2008, when it was transferred to them by the City for $0.

^Good observation. At least on that point, I hope I am ahead at being able to help my son get adequately prepared. My parents just had nothing, no clue. Nobody had ever been to college in either of their families. If not for my sister, I wouldn't have even gotten financial aid.

Stanford is private, so free tuition is doubtful, but California is well-known for having several high quality state universities, including Berkeley, UCLA, UC-Santa Barbara, UC-San Diego, UC-Davis, etc. And they used to offer free tuition for in-state residents with certain minimum academic backgrounds, though I'm not sure that's still the case.

As the link R&R posted mentions, all of the truly elite universities are essentially tuition-free now for poor, working, and even middle-class families. Cheaper than state schools, even. The real barrier is admission, which is also tied to household income, but in much more complicated ways.

The crowd had surrounding a squad car in which the police had placed a juvenile who was rightfully under arrest.  If the crowd was ordered to disperse, was given proper warning, and failed to obey that lawful order, there is nothing wrong with the cop using pepper spray to compel compliance.  If the cop lost his temper and sprayed the crowd without first issuing the order to clear the path, then that is another story.
