Congratulations to OSU's marching band, which has finally figured out how to do the kind of animatedRead More formations that USC - also known as "The Best Marching Band In The History Of The Universe" - was doing at the Rose Bowl in the 1970's.

Unfortunately without an offensive line to protect him and wide receivers to throw to it willRead More probably end up like the first 2 games of the season. I do hope I'm proven wrong though!

a bad quarterback can make even a great offensive line look bad. weeden is a bad QB. I do not knowRead More whether he can develop and be a better QB but the fact is that right now he is just plain bad. The only hole on the o-line is Oneil Cousins and he is making everyone else on the line look bad. Brian Hoyer looked good in the preseason, and I suspect that he will open some eyes playing with the first teamers. We gave Weeden a full season , a preseason and the first two games of this season. It may take Hoyer more than 4 quarters to show all he can do, but I believe his production will exceed the guy he is replacing.

They could have chosen Serpentini Arena in Strongsville or Quicken Loans Arena.

There are over a half dozen ice rinks around. They could have used any one of them.

And way to go Bryce!

I know I'm partial...but I think they'll do an awesome job this year. There's many talented youngRead More men on the team & when (not if) they work together; they can achieve amazing things! Go Rangers!!!

Maybe I'm partial. But I tend to agree!

The city of Lakewood took a big step toward its goal of being one of the top biking cities in Ohio by 2015. Patch file photo.

I guess we drivers will also now have to be on the lookout for these "BROKEN ARROWS" - asRead More this is what the painted "shallows" will turn into when the endless potholes re-emerge on our streets.

Lakewood needs to teach cyclists that when they ride on the street they must obey street lights andRead More signs just like any driver. Cycling through red lights means drivers have to pass cyclists repeatedly as they cannot blow through the red lights, plus a driver coming up to the intersection may not see the cyclist. Additionally, cyclists need to stop weaving in and out of parked cars on the more utilized streets of Lakewood. I understand we need to share the road but when they are creating hazards for drivers I wish the cyclists would stay on the sidewalks.

Tims comments illustrate, beautifully, how pathetic leadership is. Day to day thousands of peopleRead More need to co-exist in this dense city. What are the rules..well..sometimes..maybe..never..who knows? Who decides "congested"? Cyclists won't care. Do cyclist observe all rules as autos or pedestrians..its a mess! I'm sure its all in a book..but the only thing to do is post rules for all to see & strictly enforce. Pedestrians are smart enough to know that the traffic signal doesn't mean "walk"..a small box with an orange or white icon does. Simple responsibility by the leaders can solve tons of problems. Hope the girls injuries weren't to serious trying to get off of a bus! Its plain & consistant communication..this sometimes but not always is unbelieveable! QUICK QUIZ: the traffic lights are out at a 4way intersection, as you approach what does the law say you must do? Its simple logic, but people get it wrong most of the time..HELP!

ncoast…. First let me say that I think Lakewood is doing a pretty good job when it comes toRead More encouraging cycling.... Now, actually, the rules are posted. In Ohio, by law bicycles are considered “vehicles” just like cars, and the rules of the road apply pretty much equally, with a couple exceptions. Including the fact that cyclists (unlike motorists) are still mostly allowed to use sidewalks. And it makes sense that it should be this way. As you point out, cyclists and motorists have to co-exist. The best way to do that is to abide by the same rules. Not to mention that, with regard to cyclists, if you don’t want to be hit, you have to be seen. And if you want to be seen, you need to act much like a motorist. Which is one reason bike lanes are generally a bad idea. Like I said, experienced cyclists won’t use them, because such cyclists are safest in the streets and by Ohio law they are not required to use segregated lanes. And bike lanes just complicated the roadway environment. Question. How does a cyclist turn left? Answer. Leave the bike lane for the “motorist” lane, then turn left just like a motorist does. There’s no other way. Bike lanes just make left turns by cyclists more complicated. Another question, more subtle. How does a motorist turn right? Answer (believe it or not). First merge into the bike lane (!), then turn right. It’s the law, a vehicle must make a right turn from the rightmost traffic lane. And for good reason, to prevent a “right hook” of a cyclist but what motorist is going to know that? Bike lanes, because they just complicate the road, actually make roadways more hazardous. I wonder whether the city is going to remove the thermoplastic stripes from Franklin and build a legitimate (even if ill-advised) five-foot bike lane. Or whether they are going to simply put some “bikes go here” symbols painted into the existing “lane.” Which would be a disaster. If a lane is to be used, it should be sufficiently wide and its segregating “line” should be hatched within 40 yards or so of every intersection, and of course there are many intersections on Franklin. So that cyclists realize they can enter the “motorist” lane to turn left and motorists understand they can enter the “bike lane” to turn right. Whew…

what is this park's address?
Colin McEwen May 30, 2013 at 09:08 pm
It's at Lakewood Park! (on Lake Avenue)

Always reporting this stuff after the fact instead of before, eliminating any chance of gettingRead More involved. Boo! :(
M-F Schreiber May 22, 2013 at 03:33 pm
Great job Mo and Gabe! I'm so glad Gabe was able to get his bike fixed after it was stolen andRead More found, yet not rideable. So proud of your work. You are truly an inspiration to all of us.

Amen Steve!

Who exactly is going to pay for this "dedicated staff resource" for daily supervision? IfRead More they are going to hire somebody for that they better think about charging admission because I don't think my tax dollars should pay for it.
Steve May 14, 2013 at 09:56 pm
You are so right Bill. But on the other hand we do pay for Animal Control. Count how many times youRead More drive past a person with a dog off leash, don't have a baggie in their hand for clean-up, off leash in the public parks. These are also laws, but never seem to get enforced. And where exactly did the money go that was left to the animal shelter by a Womans estate??? No one has a clue, even the Patch. SMH. We will all pay for this the same as We all pay for Animal Control, aka. police department, just to watch the money disappear. Correct me if I am wrong, PLEASE.
