We decided to frequent another of Lorain’s casualties: El Castillo Grande to pay homage/our respects before their closing. But we had heard about “issues” in the Flood Area of Lorain Tower Blvd and Beyond. And decided to document. We asked one couple if they had flooding on 42nd and Tower Blvd and they were still safe. I’d never seen 3 foot waves froms cars before…. I was amazed to see the rivers coming from the woods. (They weren’t supposed to be rivers/creeks).

Note to Editor : We need a Department meeting at El Castillo Grande quick !!

The Troubles- again???

The terror returns in time for St. Patrick’s Day

“This news no doubt will be traveling fast. Only a few weeks ago EOD or ‘bomb disposal’ to you and me, had to defuse a 500lb car bomb in Northern Ireland.

A few hours ago an Army base in Massereene, County Antrim, came under automatic weapon fire killing two soldiers, injuring two soldiers and two civilians.”

“The attack comes shortly after Sir Hugh Orde, the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, requested the Special Reconnaissance Regiment’s help to gather intelligence on dissident republicans believed to be plotting a bomb attack or assassination in the run-up to St Patrick’s Day on March 17. “
