Top Secret Meeting Time – Tuesday May 24, 2016

Posted by: | Posted on: May 24, 2016

TOP SECRET MEETING TIME – Tuesday May 24, 2016 – Tonight East Cleveland City Council President Thomas Wheeler does not want to hear from residents so he refuses to tell when meetings are held.  No emails or posting in the newspaper.

topsecret

With that in mind we at 44112News want everyone to spread the word about tonight’s meeting at 5:30 PM, EC City Hall.
The infamous Council of Three plan on passing things of concern to everyone including land bank property and anything they can get away with passing.
"Council of Three"

“Council of Three”

PLEASE COME TO THE MEETING TONIGHT – Tell Thomas Wheeler why he should resign rather than go through another recall election. The fact is that the people of Ward Three don’t like Thomas Wheeler. He has done nothing for the ward and plans on bringing toxic waste next to Mayfair Elementary School.

Please spread the word, share this message with everyone in East Cleveland Ohio. EC City Council Meeting, 5:30 PM, Tuesday May 24. 2016, City Hall, 14340 Euclid Ave, East Cleveland Ohio.

How does your garden grow in East Cleveland Ohio?

Posted by: | Posted on: May 24, 2016

East Cleveland Ohio U.S.A. – Following the “Hoop Garden” story we presented the idea of growing fresh fruit and produce this year in East Cleveland Ohio seemed to be a big deal.

DSC00026

With East Cleveland City Councilman Brandon King and Mayor Gary Norton Jr’s Chief of Staff Michael Smedley being involved in the federally funded Hoop Garden debacle we decided to search for real gardens growing in the city of East Cleveland.

IMG_1671

Our first trip to the long running East Cleveland Community Garden showed that seeds are in the ground with some growth and it may be another good growing season there.

Anyone with a green thumb is urged to plant at the community garden and enjoy the harvest of produce.  We don’t get much news from this site so if you are interested in planting our helping out a visit will be necessary.

IMG_0856

Historically there was an old garden located on Shaw Avenue that was growing crops for several years until the group disbanded leaving only a sign and memories for a few people.

IMG_0825

One of the best gardens we found was in Ward Two where this neighbor has all types of herbs and produce growing using rain water and natural seeds.

IMG_0822

It’s growing season in East Cleveland and time to plant a few things in your backyard or rooftop garden.  Good Luck and Good Planting!

Could Dr. Cassie Pittman be EC’s next mayor?

Posted by: | Posted on: May 22, 2016

East Cleveland Ohio U.S.A. – What Community Mtg. On the Future of East Cleveland. When: Sat May. 21st. East Cleveland Collaborative (ecc) Moderator: Dr. Cassie Pittman

IMG_0868
In her first solo appearance before the people of East Cleveland Ohio Dr. Cassie Pittman outlines her plan to revive the embattled city she grew up in.


Using statistics and common sense this young lady has some things in her mind that EC needs right now. Instead of merging and going bankrupt the Cassie plan has the city remodeling houses rather than demolishing and offering houses at an affordable level.

IMG_0870
Clearly the residents of East Cleveland have nothing to lose after current mayor Gary Norton Jr. announced merger and bankruptcy plans and is moving ahead on his destruction plan.


Perhaps it is time to bring new thoughts to city hall and Dr. Pittman certainly would be welcome if she could be persuaded to run for office of Mayor.

IMG_0867
One thing is for sure that this will be Gary Norton Jr’s last time in office anywhere in EC.

Help Wanted – Mayor


Wedding Video instead of Auto Insurance in EC

Posted by: | Posted on: May 19, 2016
East Cleveland Ohio U.S.A. – How dare the infamous EC City Council of Three spend twenty-thousand dollars just to see themselves on cable access via a wedding video guy.  (William Fambrough)

Now 44112News is asking the state group and silent Auditor of State David Yost if they approved this item. We are also asking where in the hell did the money come from at a time when our Safety Forces are in jeopardy. With no insurance on our police and fire vehicles their lives are at risk. Even the crooks know that our police cars can’t chase them out of city limits.
DSC00037
If there was an extra twenty-thousand plus the money Mayor Gary Norton Jr. owes to this wedding photographer of sixty thousand dollars and this whole matter makes no sense.
IMG_0767
Joei Graham (Ward 4) Brandon King and Thomas Wheeler need to all be recalled by all the good neighbors watching this whole mess unfold.

Fracking coming to East Cleveland??????

Posted by: | Posted on: May 15, 2016

Prepare for Fracking in East Cleveland Ohio in lieu of building tons of new houses. The Plan might also include merger with Cleveland once the plan for the city to start fracking is all in place. People buying cheap land are doing so in the areas that might be where plants will be located.

fracking-infographic
Just in case we need to know here is a story about what is going on in Youngstown Ohio right now.

RECALL
Right now this is only one of many possible plans that might happen if residents don’t recall Thomas Wheeler, Ward 3 on June 21, 2016. Everyone must get out and vote in Ward 3 and then prepare to sign the recall petitions for Mayor Gary Norton Jr., Brandon King and Joei Graham.
