More than Just a Moment

George Floyd.

For eight minutes and forty-six seconds, bodies of protesters lay face down in the grass with their hands behind their backs. It was silent except for the cries of a small child calling “mommy, mommy,” not understanding why his momma, attentive just moments before, was now lying on the ground in front of Euclid Library, seemingly unresponsive.

The knee of police officer Derek Chauvin pressed upon the neck of George Floyd for eight minutes and forty-six seconds, slowly suffocating him as George called out for his own momma.

Breonna Taylor.

The crowd of protesters chanted the name of Breonna Taylor twenty-seven times to recognize the twenty-seventh birthday that she was not alive to celebrate. As she slept, officers entered her home unannounced, using a “no-knock” warrant. Despite the fact that the actual suspects for whom they were searching were already in custody, they shot Breonna eight times.

George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. For them, and for countless others, Faith in the City, an organization commissioned to unite churches from all denominations, joined global protests this past Thursday, June 11, orchestrating the Rally for Change for the City of Euclid. Religious and community leaders began the rally by guiding protestors down 222nd Street. With lifted fists and raised signs, protestors shouted “Black Lives Matter!”

The vivid juxtaposition of Euclid police officers blocking traffic to protect the lives of demonstrators was clear to everyone present.

Pandemic Blues

“Well we’re big rock singers

We’ve got golden fingers

And we love everywhere we go”

 “The Cover of the Rolling Stone”-Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show

Apparently even rockstars are not immune to the stress and strife brought on by the Covid 19 Pandemic.  David Crosby of Crosby Stills Nash & Young was recently interviewed by Patrick Doyle of Rolling Stone magazine and things are not going well.

The band has not toured since 2006 and there were plans for a nation-wide series of sell-out shows this summer.  That was before the Covid 19 Pandemic changed everyone’s schedules.

Crosby Stills Nash and Young were one of the super groups of the 1970’s and sold millions of albums full of music that defined a generation.  Some critics called the band the American Beatles for their songwriting, musicianship and ethereal vocal harmonies. They played Woodstock and hundreds of other iconic venues over the years.

In classic rockstar fashion, Crosby flamed out with a massive cocaine addiction that put him out of action and in jail for a few years.  At his worst Crosby kept coke, a glass pipe and a Bunsen burner just offstage during shows so he could hit the rock between songs.

Euclid Rally Peaceful, Hopeful for Real Change

In the midst of national turmoil, protests and riots over multiple deaths of African Americans throughout the country as a result of police action, Euclid’s Faith in the City group hosted a peaceful protest march in Euclid on June 11.  Faith in the City is a collection of various faith-based groups and churches committed to working together and with the City to make Euclid a place of welcome for all.  Billed as Rally for Change, this was the third peaceful event held in Euclid since the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis, sparking a national outcry for an evaluation of policing practices and social justice reform related to Black Americans.

Report from the Frontline

The day after 9-11 the Plain Dealer sent me to New York City to report on the recovery efforts at Ground Zero. I relied on my friend there, Mark Bloch, a college roommate from Kent State University, to help me get into the wreckage of the twin towers. Recent events regarding the COVIT 19 pandemic brought him to mind again. I have talked to him recently about what life in New York City is like right now. This is that report.

Bloch, 64 is an artist and writer who lives at 8th Avenue and 28th St. He is a 30-year resident of Manhattan with his wife Amy, who is a retired schoolteacher. He had a big art show scheduled for March 26 that was postponed because of the pandemic. Here is what he had to say during a recent phone conversation.

“People always call and say, ‘We are so worried about you.’ I always tell them: this is a great place to be right now. New Yorkers are the best people. There is a tremendous camaraderie here. They respect the guidelines. Our governor (Andrew Cuomo) is so sensible. There is none of that false confidence that leads to huge pool parties like elsewhere in the Midwest.

Bob Dylan is Back and Mysterious as Ever

Bob Dylan has released his first song in eight years.  It’s a fifteen minute epic called “Murder Most Foul” about the JFK assassination. Why now, 57 years after the event?  Maybe because the tragedy was the end of innocence for our generation. It’s a dark mystery that has never been solved. Decades of speculation have yielded nothing more than a handful of vague conspiracy theories.  Dylan doesn’t concern himself with the question of “why” in his song.  He takes a Shakesperian approach, examining the spiritual and cultural aftermath of that historical and evil event.  He even took the title “Murder Most Foul” from the play “Hamlet” about the murder of a king.
 
Kennedy was a popular, bright young man that represented a new, vibrant generation. To be cut down in the prime of his life and career by some mysterious and shadowy cabal was a sign to all of us that something was rotten in Denmark.  Something bigger, nefarious and unfathomable.  So much for Camelot.
We were left to fend for ourselves.  And what did we have to help us along?  Something that couldn’t be taken away. We had music.
 
Dylan references the D.J. Wolfman Jack as our shaman.  We had the Beatles to hold our hand he says.  We had Woodstock and the Age of Aquarius. And even Altamont.
 
The second half of the song provides a litany of popular music some of which that seems sort of antithetical to the work of Dylan himself. There’s Buddy Holly, Billy Joel, and The Who.  Rock, folk, jazz and blues are in there too.  There’s Etta James and John Lee Hooker.  Classic rock radio stars like Queen and Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles get a nod. He rhymes the unlikely names of big band leader Stan Getz and Allman Brother guitarist Dickey Betts.

Lakeshore Cinema Sends a Message

‘The Lake’ is the closest theater to proximity to where I live and I miss GOING to see movies during the COVID-19 quarantine but obviously a necessary temporary sacrifice that will save lives. I’m scared for movie theaters in general though and how or if they will recover when this nightmare is all over. Many won’t reopen and that’s so sad for a cinephile like me. But anyway, here’s an uplifting message on this particular one’s marquee. Stay safe out there my friends! #Lakeshore7

How I Spent My Quarantine-cation


1. Watching CNN to find out how many ways I am likely to die in the coming days.

2. Sort my socks according to age dating back to 1974.

3. Look up the word “allocute” I heard on “Law & Order.”

4. Check the mailbox for my months overdue freelance check.

5. Feed the goldfish (singular).

6. Called Mom.  Apologized for not calling in so long. She didn’t recognize my name right away.

7. Go on FaceBook and see if my cat video is trending.

8. Check mailbox again. Nothing.

9. Look in fridge for leftover Chinese. Gone.

10. Watch another “Law & Order.” Viewer discretion is advised. Jerry Orbach? Really?

11. CNN reports on new ways for me to die. Starvation might be one if I don’t ever leave here.

12. Mail arrives. All cat food coupons from Marc’s.

13. Peek in fridge again. Still nothing.

14. Go on cat videos.com. No likes.

15. Resort socks. One missing.

16. Guy on FaceBook is cutting rolls of paper towels in half to make toilet paper. What is wrong with people?

17. Finally found an episode of “Law & Order” I haven’t seen twice.

18. Was just notified that H&M is a having sale.  What is H&M? Headboards and Mattresses?

19. Goldfish missing. Cat looks guilty.

20. Found new internet talk show where celebrities eat hot wings.  That’s not entertainment. That’s Tuesday at the bar after work.

21. New York Times Sunday Magazine is the music issue. The only artist I recognize is Taylor Swift and I’ve never heard a single one of her songs.

22. Talking head on CNN said try not breath when in public places.

23. Found ten year old bottle of hand sanitizer in bathroom closet. No expiration date. Didn’t taste that bad.

24. News report says Genesis Breyer P-Orridge had died.  Who? That’s what I said.

25. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University report that in Hubei China, where the virus was first discovered, 67,760 people have been infected.  Out of a population of 59 million that is an incidence rate of 0.11percent.  That means 99.89 percent were not infected.  I’m going to the bar. Bar of soap. Again.

The way school funding is currently set up, Ohio lawmakers have incentivized Euclid taxpayers, parents and private schools to harm our public school system. Last year alone, Euclid schools paid out $6 million in tuition to private schools through the EdChoice voucher program – an amount that increased by $1.2 million this year when program qualifications changed unexpectedly.

Something special: Downtown Euclid set to become region's next Special Improvement District

Picture a bustling strip packed with bars, restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. People can stroll down the street, grab a cocktail in one place, eat dinner in another, and then walk over to see a movie or the sunset over the lake. This isn’t Ohio City or Gordon Square, though—it’s downtown Euclid.

It’s a dream that business owners there hope will come to fruition eventually, and with downtown Euclid’s upcoming designation as a Special Improvement District, it just might.

Established as a private, not-for-profit organization under state law, a Special Improvement District, known as an SID, serves as a way for property owners within the district’s boundaries to band together to make a roadmap for improvements that they pay for with a pool of money collected through taxes. The end goal is to increase economic development through a cohesive plan and collaboration among local business owners.

Euclid’s SID will span Lakeshore Boulevard from the Mary Mavec Opportunity School to East 228th Street and south along East 222nd Street to encompass Shore Cultural Centre. Only commercial properties are included; no residential or church properties are part of the SID. Though Euclid has other commercial corridors, like Euclid Avenue and East 185th Street, downtown was chosen not only for its growing concentration of businesses, including Great Scott TavernBeach Club BistroLake Shore Coffee HouseParagon Wine Bar and Atlas Cinemas, but its proximity to what might be Euclid’s best asset: the lake.

Euclid In 1959—A Grand Birthday Celebration

“Sesquicentennial” is a word meaning 150th anniversary. In Euclid, sixty years ago this June, it meant the biggest and best party in Euclid’s long history.

Euclid Township was organized in 1809 and one hundred and fifty years later, an eight-day extravaganza with all sorts of special events to celebrate the special birthday were organized by event chairman Robert C. Palmer, twelve committees and about 1000 volunteers.

The festivities began with a Coronation Ball in TRW’s ballroom where the “Sesqui-Queen”, Dorothy Hearn and her court were named.  It ended more than a week later after the eighth and last outdoor performance of the dramatic historical spectacle “Euclid-Rama” in DiBiasio Stadium, featuring 500 residents as cast members. The production traced Euclid’s history beginning with “Along the Indian Trails” to the “Mutiny at Conneaut Creek” and later from the “Iron Horse,” “The Roaring Twenties” until ending with “The Day of the Satellites.”  It was only shortly before that time that first Russia with its Sputnik and, shortly thereafter, the United States blasted off into the skies.  Fittingly, the celebration ended with a grand fireworks show just after the curtain came down.

Audiences were treated to a heartwarming production of Freaky Friday with an exhausting five shows presented over a four-day run.

Hospice of the Western Reserve Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Forty years ago, a small group of visionaries saw an unmet need in the community. They marshaled their passion and their resources, and with the help of friends, they established Cancer Family Service, Inc. This was the forerunner of what would eventually become Hospice of the Western Reserve. Over time, the tiny operation grew from caring for 23 cancer patients in 1978 to a nonprofit agency caring for more than 1,100 patients a day living with a wide range of advanced illnesses. Since its inception, the organization has cared for more than 120,000 people in Northern Ohio.
