To Stabilize or DE-stabilize that is the question Lorain County

UPDATE!!!! today  the 29th  of April I  drove past the property  that was the Olde English  Parlour  and Lorain Creamery   and what a difference in just a few days. The property  has had the mattresses and tires and junk cars on the sidewalk of last week removed and the place tidied and cleaned – Thank you  City  of Lorain

The 10 hundred block of 4th  street especially 1026 has been mentioned in the past few days . https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2018/04/23/a-dangerous-situation-castration-of-justice-lorain/

The Incarceration House

Interesting home , a pretty  home  and now a mini  jail (  in my  opinion )  where ,according to  court records ( Judge John Miraldi’s court), there is a history.  Check out  these court cases  from Lorain County  Court of Common Pleas and John Miraldi’s courtroom – You  be the judge –  and please check out the indictments

16CR093607     03/25/2016

Then there is court case : 16CA011062 which  is apparently ( not being an attorney I have struggled with  some of the documentation ) an appeal … but that date is  12/27/2016

BUT  this “gentleman – of our neighborhood “ was arrested  less than one month  later with  regard to  a heroin bust at 1141 W 14th  Street

Jan 24, 2017 – A Lorain Police Department SWAT Team member watches the front of Matatanes Auto Repair and Towing, 1141 W. 14th St., as narcotics detectives search the business Jan. 24, 2017. The Lorain Police Department Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at the automotive repair shop and at 911 W. 14th …

Approach  the bench – side bar-

Lorain readers will remember this lovely  little business  at 1141 W 14th  used to  be the Lorain Creamery / Olde English  Parlour .  How many  of us enjoyed ice cream and a a meal at the Olde English  Parlour?

and now????  Just drive by ,  I did – past the trash , junk and mattresses etc.    Who let that facility  end up the way  it has , where are the inspections???? … From Lorain County  Auditors Site – Owners  Nicolaou Petros & Elena – tax bill mailed to  897 S Lake St. Amherst . Ohio

 

 

Oh yes! been down that road before – Whomever it was  should have been fired in my  opinion….. but I  digress back to  the courts:

Case number 17CR095700 ( back in John Miraldi’s Court ) 02/14/2017

You  may  well be asking WHY am I  still banging on about this guy  and his court case ? You  see  there is a little more history  on this 10  hundred block.

In my  opinion the County  and the Courts have acquiesced  to  having this  person serve time (  under house arrest) in our neighborhood   thereby   “destabilizing”  a neighborhood that has its struggles and  abuts the downtown which  everyone is wanting to  “bring back???

He wasn’t originally  living in this neighborhood NO! he was arrested at 911 W 14TH ST LORAIN, OH 44052 owned by Barreto Cadido and Megdalia  and whose tax bill of $6,273.98 doesn’t look to  have been paid in 5 or 6 years .

These streets around downtown  could be positive foot traffic for the big downtown renewal but what sort of foot traffic is being sent your way  answer me that – Downtown Lorain?

In fact the county , under the Neighborhood Stabilization  Program poured money  into  this block, taking down a derelict house that had stood abandoned  for over forty  years,  upon the advise of another expensive “study” –


Thriving Communities Institute of the Western Reserve Land Conservancy- Sarah Ryzner, the institute’s director of projects, and Paul Boehnlein, GIS and conservation planning specialist had a lot to  say  starting with  two  doors down from the now “incarceration house”

The Icon House

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2013/11/16/welcome-to-fairyland-aka-in-the-pink-lorain-ohio/ and  https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/away-with-the-fairies-living-in-lorain/

True to  their word  with  much  hoopla Lorain County  Land Reutilization  and Lorain County  Port Authority   came and took down the Icon House

“So under the auspices of the Lorain County Land Re-utilization Corp – Lorain County Port Authority
whose mission ” Improving Lorain County and Revitalizing Neighborhoods” the eyesore ,that was once a well-loved and cherished home, came down.”

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/07/16/history-demoed-another-rehabbed-pt-1/

This segues into  the rest of the story  because thanks to  the  Neighborhood “Stabilization” Program -the county  and co  – another historic property The Coleman House –  1031 W 4th  was rehabbed    see the story  here …

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/07/22/history-demoed-another-rehabbed-pt3/

 

The county  duly  rehabbed the house- it was too far gone for an historic rehab, but supposedly  helped with  stabilizing the neighborhood. More than a few 10’s of  thousands went into  this “icon” project …We, in the street were pleased someone was recognizing the worthiness and rehabbing.

My  question is will the county  and courts get on the same page …. please make up  their mind  because  using the “house across the road from the rehab house  as a “16 hour a day  place of incarceration”  is not conducive to  stabilizing this neighborhood .

And whilst we are at it and the cost to  the “community”- that apparently  has no  say  so  in control- I  asked  the Judge John Mirald etc i- for which  I never received and answer :

How much  does a drug raid cost us the taxpayers , local, state and federal for our law enforcement to  go  on these raids as opposed to  the amount of sentencing???? 

 

MAKE UP  YOUR MIND LORAIN COUNTY  – DO  YOU  WISH  TO  STABILIZE OR  DESTABLIZE THIS STREET……… The community  who  have invested years   have  rights too………….. OR DO WE?????? Lorain County  and Courts enquiring minds would like to  know!

A dangerous situation- Castration of Justice- Lorain

UPDATE: May  14th-2018  ACCORDING TO  THE OWNER – MR. ROBERT GONZALES OF 1026 W. 4TH  STREET, CARLOS LOPEZ AS DOCUMENTED IN COURT RECORDS UNDER HOUSE ARREST AT 1026 W. 4TH STREET DOES NOT RESIDE AT THAT PROPERTY…. YOU  HAVE TO  WONDER THEN “I WONDER WHERE THE FELON WENT”…….

Let me first say – this is entirely  my  own opinion  formed by  circumstances  beyond my control.

This past month I wrote a post :

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/my-roses-their-guns-walk-away-from-lorain/

For over forty  years  we have lived next door to  a house that has ALWAYS been “difficult” both  with  tenants and lack of respect.

We stayed the course always  hoping and trying  not only  to  make this a better neighborhood and invest in what is Lorain’s oldest neighborhood. In the last two  years we have put in over $22,000 dollars in to  an empty  lot  next door

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2017/10/16/money-where-your-mouth-is-part-7/

turning it from this

to  this

Lack of code enforcement  and bank dumping in recent years  have made the adjoining property  even more of a nuisance.

As mentioned ,so  many  times before on these pages – the system that is Lorain, inspections , judicial , enforcement and accountability  have, in my  opinion, caused this deterioration of a community, all you  have to  do is ride around  “old Lorain and the downtown” .

Ease of public trough  monies, bank dumps and  property  management companies (in and out-of-state)  has pretty  much  overpowered  and forced out the people who have expendable income. Lorain’s past history (Community Development )   and her  knee jerk reactive development has caused that to  happen. Those who  have stayed … they  either have to  or are still trying against odds that are becoming insurmountable.

OK ! people ( who  can)  move out leave their homes or are looking to  leave. But these past few weeks , I have found something far more sinister  and frightening to  we who  stayed.   As documented,  we have had issues with  individuals who , quite frankly, I  wouldn’t have anything in common or to  do  with , a culture of blatant disrespect on the other side of the fence.  I  don’t understand their “behavior” uncivilized  and a detriment to  community.  But that is not the scary  part.

Last week the designated alley  was blocked by  the tow truck which  has been parked next to  my  fence  and their house  for weeks. Our at large council person can attest to  that fact.

 

I needed to  get out of my  garage. Simple ???ask them to  move what I  consider an illegal  commercial vehicle , out-of-the-way. This tow truck bears the Matatanes Towing – the “business” that was raided in

Lorain police net two arrests in suspected heroin bust

Jan 24, 2017 – A Lorain Police Department SWAT Team member watches the front of Matatanes Auto Repair and Towing, 1141 W. 14th St., as narcotics detectives search the business Jan. 24, 2017. The Lorain Police Department Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at the automotive repair shop and at 911 W. 14th …

 

Once again I  was met with  the curses and obscenities  from individuals who  do  not reside at that residence.. drop  off and carry  out…

What was even more worrying was the fact when I said:

fine I  will call the police, I  was met with  laughter , high  fiving , and call – don’t care .. call the police… etc.

Eventually  the tow truck and its cargo  ( after having some items stripped) was returned to  its usual parking place next to  my  fence   with  now the car on the top  partially  stripped  in full view over the top  of my  8 foot fence  – looming , reminiscent of a  vulture salivating   at the demise of civility.

 

The Lorain Police Dept. is our last bastion of support for the everyday  citizen They protect and serve and yet here were people with   guns, yes guns  for my  European  readers – par for the course in Lorain apparently – scaring the hell out of me – having the very  people who  can protect and serve, FOUND TO BE  LAUGHABLE. I  was gobsmacked – they  obviously  didn’t give a monkeys….

WHY IS THAT??? … well in the case of the posse next door – I  believe it stems from a judicial decision, Judge John Miraldi  , Lorain County  Court of Common Pleas  Case no.   17CR095700

DEFT HAVING COMPLETED PROGRAMMING W/PRIMARY PURPOSE BOND IN THIS CASE IS MODIFIED. DEFT SHALL REMAIN ON HOUSE ARREST AND RESIDE AT 1026 FOURTH ST., LORAIN, OH. DEFT GRANTED WORK PRIVILEGES MONDAY THRU FRIDAY, 8:00 A.M. TO 4:00 P.M. DEFT SHALL REMAIN ON CSR SUPERVISION AND GPS MONITORING THROUGH COURTMON. ANY CHANGES TO THIS SCHEDULE WILL REQUIRE APPROVAL BY THIS COURT. SEE JRNL. (16CR093607/17CR095700)

How nice and comforting for those who  live here and attend school…. this  man now lodging  2 houses down from a school – under house arrest , a trafficker, moved from the 14th  street address to  our neighborhood.

OH he ISN’T an RSO so  he can live there- My  thoughts.. if he is under house arrest then  the Adult Parole Authority  and by  the judge agreeing, has now turned this “rental” into  a place of incarceration – a jail. Oh  and don’t forget this guy  has gone through a few weeks of rehab- that is OK then???? Community  Control- this community  would like more of a say  so  in the control!!!!!

The other “gentleman “ was not  unknown to  the  “good” Judge John  Miraldi  he had appeared (  gone through a drug rehab  program  under his previous – go  around) 12CR086331 in 2012  and  after 4 pages of court documents  where he thwarted the courts ended up  with  him being incarcerated in a real jail.

However  The “good” Judge must have forgotten how lax this “gentleman” was in the previous go  around 2012 because  this was his sentence  after pleading guilty his latest appearance in court ( and he has quite a record!!!) 17CR095698

DEFT APPEARED IN COURT FOR SENTENCING AFTER HAVING WITHDRAWN HIS OR HER PREVIOUSLY ENTERED PLEA OF NOT GUILTY AND HAVING NOW ENTERED A PLEA OF GUILTY TO AND HAVING BEEN FOUND GUILTY BY THE COURT THE FOLLOWING CHARGE(S): COUNT 1: TRAFFICKING IN DRUGS – 2925.03(A)(1) – F5 COUNT 2: TRAFFICKING IN DRUGS – 2925.03(A)(1) – F5 DEFT IS SENTENCED TO COMMUNITY CONTROL FOR A PERIOD OF THREE (3) YEARS ENDING 10/23/2020.

Pity  he didn’t  remember that case  because  apparently  The perpetrator seems to  be following a pattern – He has a BAD address and so  is not responding to  the court…….OH MY!!!!

DEFENDANT HAVING BEEN ORDERED TO REIMBURSE COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEY FEES, THE COURT FINDS THAT COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEY FEES ARE: $848.00.

Good luck with  that then Judge – although I  know where he has been off and  on  hanging with  the posse.

Can this be why  those individuals last week found it laughable that I would call the Lorain Police Dept. Has the judicial system stymied them in their ability  to  protect and serve , how problematic a “ticket”  when they  are given such  leeway  in  drug trafficking  , breaking and entering etc. ?

I wrote to  Judge John Miraldi, to  the courts wanting to  know why? I realize the Judge John Miraldi  has his own issues to  deal with

http://www.chroniclet.com/cops-and-courts/2018/02/02/Judge-s-son-charged-with-tampering-in-connection-with-fatal-shooting.html

 

BUT, in my  opinion, his court and the way the drug traffickers are given the benefit of the doubt and “rehab” and a slap  has castrated justice. I have not  received any  answer or confirmation . There is a surprise ..BAD ADDRESS maybe……….?????

The City  of Lorain, the enforcement of  her ordinances and the judicial system are two  departments that can affect the quality  of the lives of those that are still here, but seeing a wonderful and I  mean wonderful Lorain Police Dept, with  whom  the organization of which  I am co- chair  (CVSI)

http://www.loraincounty.com/charlestonlorai/

has worked in hand with  for  30  years laughed at  sticks in my  craw  .

 

 

These officers put their lives on the line , their welfare and yes sanity  every  time they  go  on shift. They  have to  have the support of the judicial branch. Time to  step  up- these people are admitted traffickers……… stop enabling the dealers!!!!

The Wayback machine- is a lesson not learned


Due to a need to find some documentation for someone , I recently had cause to go through three of my old hard drives. I tend to be rough on computers and especially key boards .

I soon realized in previous writings on the word of mouth blog and the Wom Blog , – now defunct and off-limits to the general public- the very important links – linked in the writings of the time – have now disappeared from the internet as well.
deadlogo

The Plain Dealer, Morning Journal, Chronicle Telegram articles (locally) are no longer a click away. They aren’t alone, links to so many “sources” have now disappeared- who says the internet is forever? I am sure that if I went to the library and trolled through the archives I would be able to find the original on microfiche etc -but who has time to do that?

For some unknown reason I did copy and paste an awful lot of material. However from 1998 until 2002 -I have downloads on floppys ( never understood why they were called that). I have an atrocious filing system ( read no system at all) which means looking for something means trolling through a plethora of files I have downloaded through, what has now become, decades.

As I have been trolling through, I came across situations I had been a part of that I deemed important enough to save. I soon realized most of those situations where I had thought to make a difference in the past 10,12, 15 years – things remained the same. I trolled through the Eastern Shawnee Sovereign land deal to get money and the spending of money to get a seat at the table with the big boys- that didn’t work out- but we sure spent a hell of a lot of money for the appetizers. Although the names changed the spending money to get money

behaviors continue – read Judges and Elyria Court House. https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/07/31/elyria-court-house-debacle-the-final-judgement/

The legal battle has also been pricey. The law firm representing the judges billed the county for $254,407, while the commissioners’ lawyers charged $73,404, according to figures provided by county Budget Director Lisa Hobart.

The Lorain jail issue -where did the money go, the historic park for condos and the bringing back of Lorain’s “downtown” 2005- 2006- even farther back than that- and we are still saying the same things – different faces, different voices – the fight to keep our neighborhoods safe.

In 2005 a young girl was attacked on her way to school. There was a blame game going on at the time – however it was the neighborhood , the derelict and abandoned housing, the number of RSO’s flooding into the area from Compass House causing the greatest concern . The community rallied and we tried- held forums, with an ultimate goal – which in the end -failed

Notes from the Community Roundtable June 28th 2005

The following notes are an overview of the meeting and are not meant to represent official minutes.

Background

The Executive Board of Charleston Village Society Inc. asked various representatives to attend an informal “roundtable discussion”. The main concern is the safety of our young people as they are going through our neighborhoods. An individual heightened the concern due to the recent attacks as the young girls were heading toward school.

Charleston Village’s concerns are two fold. While the Lorain City Schools have implemented programs and resources to keep our students out of harms way whilst they are in school and on or around the school property and the City Of Lorain Police Dept. have been extremely involved with the school safety issue, both Lorain City Schools and the Lorain Police Dept. are restricted in their parameters. Charleston Village felt that there is a gap and that is the neighborhoods themselves that the young people live and have to travel through in order to reach their schools. Lorain City schools has over 10,000 students attending Lorain Public Schools – that is just under one sixth of the population of Lorain needing to be free from harm.

While some neighborhoods have implemented Block Watch programs and Neighborhood watch, there is a gap as these particular attacks happened during the day when most people who are involved with such programs are at work. Charleston Village wanted to address this “gap” in the safety net. We asked Rev Donahue of the Christian Temple Disciples of Christ and representative of the Downtown Ministries to facilitate the meeting. Charleston Village then contacted various stakeholders in the community to attend.

Lorain police looking for man who attempted to abduct children

At a noon news conference at the Lorain Police Department, Detective Sgt. Buddy Sivert said the first incident occurred around 6 a.m. in the area of Washington Avenue and West Ninth Street. The suspect allegedly grabbed the female teen by the arm, made a threatening comment and punched the girl twice when she tried to get away.

Sivert said the girl was uninjured. Witnesses saw the suspect flee west on West Eighth Street.

The suspect is described as a white male roughly 5-feet 10-inches to 6-feet tall, in his mid-20s to mid-30s. He was said to be wearing a black jacket with a hood, dark jeans, dark shoes, dark gloves and possibly a mask over his face, Sivert said.

The second incident occurred a little more than an hour later around 7:20 a.m. in the area of Oberlin Avenue and West Eighth. According to Sivert, the suspect exposed himself and followed the female into someone’s front yard before fleeing westbound on West Eighth.

A short time later around 7:46 a.m. in the area of West 18th Street and Oakdale, the suspect grabbed another female teen from behind before fleeing eastbound on West 18th, Sivert said.
“I believe one was a middle school student and the others are possibly elementary students,” he said. “ We don’t know for sure, but we feel they were grabbed in a sexual manner.”

Chronicle Telegram

http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2016/02/26/would-be-kidnappings-in-elyria-lorain/
Sivert said extra patrols were in the area and detectives were asking residents and businesses in the area that may have captured video of the incidents to call police.

None of the victims mentioned a vehicle, so the suspect was likely on foot, Sivert said.

Sivert said there’s nothing other than a similar suspect description to tie the Lorain incidents to what happened in Elyria, nor to the incident last week in which 2-year-old Lorain resident Lana Lowther went missing for four hours.

I wish we had made a difference in those intervening 11 years- we didn’t
Oh! we now have an Administration that is taking down and dealing with the abandoned and most derelict of homes but it is a slow process. We have a Housing Court https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2015/10/22/housing-court-and-you-lorain-continued/

which, in my opinion. needs some teeth or at least some intestinal fortitude with dealing with mega property owners and their issues – aka “accountability “.

We didn’t make a dent in the number of RSO or Adult parolees in the neighborhood, infact they have doubled in part of the neighborhood from that time .
We have within two miles of the attacks ( 1/3 of that area being the lake )
97 offenders in 83 locations
RSO4th

and 64 parolees . for all sorts of lovely crimes http://www.drc.state.oh.us/OffenderSearch

Paroleres

I wish we hadn’t failed – done more , I wish I had the key so that the children of this neighborhood, going to school had only to worry about their grades…………

Housing Court and You – Lorain- Continued

Cook

As promised, a continuation of Lorain’s Housing Court.
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2015/09/11/the-housing-court-and-you-lorain-part-one/

Let us first get some housekeeping out-of-the-way!

This was my third time attending the proceedings. It is punishment in and of itself having to sit in a stuffy, airless room with people coughing, hacking, sneezing and other odoriferous issues , stacked like sardines in a can. Word of advice don’t try fanning oneself you will get more than a fresh breeze
.

To be fair, those that haven’t got a seat are allowed to go and wait in one of the other courtrooms until their case is called . I think if Warren Finkel, the chief architect of Lorain City Hall, wasn’t already deceased he should be fined for poor design at the very least. Each time I have attended there has been a large number of people sometimes 90 people on the docket , hopefully I have just been unlucky.

The other issue, frustrating to all, including Magistrate Cook ,was the number of times the software went “walk about” or the computer glitched- 4 times by my reckoning in 2 hours.

Purely from the standpoint of an observer, and I may be under a misconception here,it looks to me as if the defendants who have an attorney present go first on the docket.

The people who have abated their issues seem to come next .I am pleased to say there were, on all three times I attended, a great many people who had abated their issues , the system seems to be working in that regard.

Apparently , abating issues does not save you from “Court Costs”. The mere fact the city had to go through the paperwork, sending out for inspections and going through the process( even if your violations were now abated) doesn’t save you from court costs. That is, unless the city has had their own issues- ( that happened more than once every one of those court dates- imho too frequently ) My first day in court August 12th had Magistrate Cook admonishing the Prosecutors office with ” sloppy work”.


NOTE: A word to the wise if you get a notice from the Building Dept with regard to violations , take care of them , let them know you will take care of them in writing – ( get that all important paper trail) . In case you end up in Housing Court

1. If you have abated your issues- according to the Prosecutor- you then sign the document electronically as does the Prosecutor and you go across the hall with your paperwork and pay the court costs

If you haven’t abated – you have three choices, Not Guilty as which time you are set either for a pre- trial or a bench trial and choose a date in the future ( this also gives you more time to abate your issues before your next appearance) NOTEI have been told every time this happens the Building Dept has to once again re inspect the property again and may be required to appoint an attorney for you ( the City of Lorain that is)

2. No Contest which means you didn’t admit guilt but then again you don’t disagree- This ends up with a fine and court costs -to be paid across the hall

3. Guilty– same as above- the highest amount fined was $250 plus costs

If there are circumstances in your life where there are problems with taking care of the issues – contact the Building Dept, explain the problems and put it writing with a projected date you will be able to adhere and after you have finished call for a re-inspection and get the paper work the violations were abated .

Keep that paper trail, mistakes can and have happened.

Don’t wait until you are summoned to court because you will face a probably 3 hour punishment of sitting in that claustrophobic courtroom and I am sure the Building Dept. employees don’t enjoy sitting there session after session either .

Garage Sales BewarePeople of Lorain YOU HAVE TO GET A PERMIT FOR A GARAGE SALE- I WAS TOLD THEY WERE FREE- BUT IF YOU DON’T GET ONE – YOU WILL BE OUT OF POCKET – FINE PLUS COURT COSTS


Magistrate Cook, is very personable and runs a fairly relaxed courtroom. I am not sure how I feel about that- one the one hand it did break the ordeal of having to sit there generally listening to procedure and helped with the tension. He is charming, concerned , empathetic, patient , has a sense of humour and usually deferring to the Prosecutor as to fines etc. A great deal of the defendants were less than knowledgable as to the process and it seemed he took that into consideration. Magistrate Cook certainly is not Judge Raymond Pianka

Cleveland Housing Court Judge Raymond Pianka is ratcheting up the costs for absentee property owners who spread the damage from the foreclosure crisis. They will have to pay neighbors for economic losses caused by their neglect. http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2010/08/cleveland_housing_judge_requir.html

BUT on the other hand this chatty chat does somewhat cheapen the due process and personally I would like to have seen a less obliging courtroom in some of the cases I witnessed, but maybe that is just me who is used to the British Courtrooms where calling out compliments and chat at least on two occasions from those waiting would have been seen as disrespectful to the process of law.

Magistrate Cook, did make it quite clear YOU not your spouse has to attend court when summoned , unless of course you have an attorney speaking on your behalf – However, the two that did feel his wrath were not penalized due to their “names not being accurate on the paperwork “ in the first place!

My trip to the court on October 21st was due to the fact Kaja Holdings were up before the bench one more – Readers will remember Kaja Holdings

Kaja Holdings Lorain
However apparently their attorney Lei Jaing is no longer acting for them and a new attorney is in place therefore a continuance until December 9th, these properties have been in the hopper now for how many months- since the first of the year on some of them – ( the beginning of the process)

All was not lost because there were one or two people I recognized from previous blog posts on my mega landlords and their impact on our neighborhoods.
1st up Gustav Krause POS foreclosure
1621v E.36th Street- 1621 gustav

but we know Gustav Krause and his LLC -FGSK PROPERTIES LLC of old from the September 2012 post, before the death of George Schneider.

Gustav Krause looks to own 12 parcels and the tax bills are sent to a PO Box number 395 as well- along with property owners of David W Carter/ Red’s All American Recycling fame.

Imagine my interest when another landlord – multi property owner and holder of “thatwoman blog fame” Jerrod Biebrick

http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2015/03/30/lorain-county-habitat-humanity-seeking-new-home/
Biebrick, owner of Patriot Property Management, said he owns about 80 rental properties in Lorain and has been buying building materials at the store for two or three years.
Landlording in Lorain is a big business ( Housing Choice Vouchers alone)
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/freedom-of-speech-usa-really-pt-4/

For instance according to Ms. Carter of the LMHA
“housing choice vouchers alone pump 1.4 MILLION A MONTH
into Lorain County but The City of Lorain gets 64% of that money EVERY MONTH or approximately $900,000.00 PER MONTH COMES INTO THE CITY OF LORAIN-!!!

and Mr. Biebrick apart from his 80 properties certainly has a plethora of LLC’s
Biebrick LLC
A quick check on just 4 of Biebrick’s many properties he owes on just those 4
over $23,000 dollars – I would hate to see what his tax bill is like on all 80 odd- I went through picking out randomly and every one had taxes owed that I checked – including the one for which he had to appear

How did that “Diversion ” sentence work out? (May 14th 2013)
http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2013/05/14/ex-lccaa-head-pleads-guilty-to-illegal-voting/

ELYRIA — Former Lorain County Community Action Agency Director Robert Gilchrist pleaded guilty Monday to four felony counts of illegal voting, but those charges will be dropped if he completes a year-long diversion program.

The program gives Gilchrist the chance to emerge from the long-running controversy over where he voted in four separate elections without a criminal conviction on his record.

“As long as he’s successful, this goes away,” Anthony Baker, Gilchrist’s attorney, said……………………..

………………..Baker had been preparing to argue that Gilchrist was singled out for prosecution because he is black or because of his association with former Mayor Tony Krasienko, who was defeated in the 2011 Democratic primary. He contended that people who had made similar voting missteps in previous elections weren’t prosecuted.

Will and his office had repeatedly rejected that argument, saying they were pursuing a violation of the law that had nothing to do with race or politics. They also pointed out that not every issue brought up by Baker was referred to prosecutors by the county Board of Elections.

Wonder what this latest Gilchrist “Diversion” this will take?

October27th 2014
http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/10/27/former-lccaa-head-faces-marijuana-charges/

Robert Gilchrist, a former Lorain service director and ex-Lorain County Community Action Agency CEO and president, faces drug charges after a traffic stop.

Police said they found four packages of suspected marijuana in a vehicle driven by Gilchrist about 8:35 p.m. Friday. The 44-year-old Gilchrist is due in Oberlin Municipal Court today facing charges of trafficking in drugs, aiding the sale of schedule III, IV or V drugs, possession of marijuana and impeding traffic. He was being held without bond at the Lorain County Jail on Sunday night.

Quite the Monday morning “diversion”-

Chandra – Cha-chinging away- County Coffers and how it is done

Part One
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/06/19/lorain-county-judges-crowing-with-chandra/

A Murder of Crows
taxpayerlor

or The Story of the Cash Cow of the County
chandra cowres

ATTENTION! Fellow taxpayer, you who are busy trying to earn a few sheckles in this rust belt of an economy , you who did your civic duty and voted in Judges and Commissioners and trusted them to “do due diligence” to the task appointed by your vote. We are seeing our hard-earned money spent on “attorneys” because the Judicial System and the ( County) Executive Branch cannot communicate.

The Court of Common Pleas, the only trial court created by the Ohio Constitution, is established by Article IV, Section 1, of the Constitution, and its duties are outlined in Article IV, Section 4.
Missing: mission ‎statement

with the Administrative ( Executive Branch) Lorain County Board of Commissioners ( whose mission statement also couldn’t be found as it kept coming up “error”.)

Not a good sign fellow taxpayers… Mission Impossible...

So let us see how this works- we are of course seeing our money go out of the county to Cuyahoga and to Subodh Chandra- Chandra has benefitted from the Lorain City and Lorain County squabbles big time-

CHANDRA

We ,the taxpayers, have poured money into his pockets. The Commissioners helped Mark Stewart to get the situation out of common sense and into to Chandra CENTS.

But hey! Chandra persevered and finally The city of Lorain caved. Of course the poor old city taxpayers were hamstrung you see our Cuyahoga attorney Anthony Calabrese was involved in another aspect of the judicial system.

Calabrese’s former law firm, Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease agreed to pay a $3 million settlement to the city of Lorain, which had employed Calabrese and the firm during the years of corrupt activity. The Lorain City Council on Monday approved the deal, contained in a 10-page ordinance titled “settlement and mutual release agreement.”
The agreement “will be a great benefit to the city,” the ordinance read, “and the delay of lengthy litigation resolved amicably without delay to the benefit of the city of Lorain.”The $3 million will be made in two equal payments due Dec. 20 and Jan. 10, according to terms of the settlement.

We did get some of our money back with a settlement ( figured out by other attorneys and paying them a fee) so all was not lost – just reputations smeared, spin, hard feelings and confusion still reigns as to the CRA.
CHANDRA
But Chandra is on course for the race to who will give in first. His methodology is quite simple –

One he uses his contacts in the Plain Dealer and Cleveland news outlets to tell the tale- https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/03/17/hear-ye-hear-ye-all-rise-the-right-hon-public-opinion-presiding/

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/08/09/cra-chandra-and-look-who-is-talking-too/

The headlines cause shock and awe – he then will use those same slanted until they tip over ” news” stories as part of his arguments in court.

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2010/12/17/jaccuse-the-accusers-the-crap/
CHANDRA

That is what he does, and it has started – in fact the TAXPAYER is taken to task in the first volley found here:

Lorain County’s worst public building is no place for probation officers: “Hey, Taxpayer!” with Mark Naymik

http://www.cleveland.com/naymik/index.ssf/2014/06/lorain_countys_old_courthouse.html#incart_river

I was unable to access parts of the building documented by a photographer hired by Chandra.

and to further add insult to injury

It’s hard to believe spending a quarter of million dollars will produce a cost-effective, long-term solution in a building that needs so much. Taxpayers deserve a better option.

errr excuse me Mark – we, the taxpayer, aren’t given any options – we just cough up the money and choke…… and according to Channel 3 we, the taxpayer, keep a filthy house, errrrrr last time I looked we paid for maintenance and janitors- what happened??? But great spin Chandra we got our monies worth on that one!

The county house of filth

http://www.wkyc.com/story/news/local/lorain-county/2014/06/19/probation-filth-lorain-county-black-mold/10873183/

CHANDRA Two – Chandra , apart from the media relations– will bombard the opposite number with huge paperwork requests ( all costed out to the case) Take note this time around county officials
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/07/31/accounting-enron-or-gov-enron/

“Because the county too- seemingly only keep records of monies paid to Chandra and Co- not the driving to and from meetings ( although Chandra does – he counts it in his invoices to us -the taxpayer- ( through the real estate account in the County coffers- He counts his hours and what it costs for him and what it cost for his assistant.) but apparently county government doesn’t. So I guess to get a true accounting of what it is costing I should ask Chandra he may have a better idea”

chachin

Now fellow combatants, since we will be paying for Cha- Ching Chandra and the opposing counsel, one would only hope the Commissioners find an attorney ( not of the character of Calabrese)
http://amlawdaily.typepad.com/amlawdaily/2011/09/arntsen-calabrese.html who can take on Chandra.

OH! OH! WHAT AM I THINKING- WE ARE PAYING FOR HIM/HER TOO!

Therefore , if that law firm is any good this could go well past a million dollar mark, wonder if they have media contacts they can use. Maybe the taxpayer could sell tickets to this Comedy of Errors and recoup some of the money spent by our “employees“.

So , the upshot is no matter how this turns out – we the taxpayer lose and the only thing we can do is remember how much those that started the Chandra Ball rolling as they fired the first “legal” salvo and spent the first dime of our money – at election time –

THEY SPENT NOT WISELY BUT TOO WELL!!!!!!

judges

NOTE: And whilst I am telling it to the Judge- Please judges – try to refrain from those probation sentences , help ease the workload for the probation department and maybe I wouldn’t have 82 in my neighborhood and 270 in the county!

Lorain County Judges Crowing with Chandra

Judges in their robes always remind me of crows- and the poem

One for sorrow,
Two for mirth
Three for a wedding,
Four for birth
Five for silver,
Six for gold;
Seven for a secret,Not to be told;
Eight for heaven,
Nine for hell
And ten for the devil’s own sell! ( meaning selling ones soul to the devil)

Our current six crows –
Judge Betleski ( heard of him in the CRA debacle ?He knows how much his choice of Chandra will cost the taxpayer – he should – as he has been there done that with the CRA)- https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/02/18/is-it-the-fish-that-stinks-or-the-company/

have an issue with the Lorain County Commissioners and Lorain County Administrator .
commissioncollage
Ted Kalo, Lori Kokoski, Tom Willams , Jim Cordes
Read the latest in response to the argument in this morning’s Chronicle Telegram- Evan Goodenow
http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/06/19/pair-oppose-possible-move-justice-center/

“Just because somebody wants something doesn’t make it the right thing,” Kalo said.

Kokoski said department workers’ health and safety isn’t at risk in the building and they are exaggerating problems. She said photos of decrepit conditions are from areas where employees aren’t supposed to be.
“They’re trying to shame us into spending $2.8 million because they want what they want,” Kokoski said.

While the $1.2 million share of the cost of the move is about 2.2 percent of the $53 million county budget, Kokoski said the county can’t afford it.

“We would have to borrow that,” she said. “We don’t have money to fix our sidewalks.”

Williams said in an interview that the $50,000 requested Tuesday by the judges to hire a Cleveland law firm to sue the Board of Commissioners is just the start of a potentially costly legal battle. He estimated it could cost $500,000 for a settlement and $750,000 to $1 million if the case is resolved in court.

According to Tim Lubbe the Court Administrator who wrote the following in a replying email when I announced my displeasure of getting on the legal eagle train again.

Ms. Ritchey:

I have received your email and I can appreciate your sentiment. I would like to offer you some information which may provide a different perspective on this matter. This week Channel 3 and the Plain Dealer will be doing an expose on the working conditions to which the County Commissioners have relegated the Lorain County Adult Probation Department. I believe you will find these reports very illustrative of why we had to hire an attorney to address the deplorable conditions under which these employees must work. This link provides some pictures (taken in the last two weeks) of what these employees have been forced to endure. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/ea02qpuxqp24jme/AABBAOKr08J5Z-ktbPxcySpna

Certainly I have one perspective on this issue: to provide the Court’s employees with adequate space where they can perform their job on behalf of the Court and the citizens of Lorain County. I don’t believe that our employees should expect to work in extravagant facilities. However, they also should not have to withstand constant exposure to feces, mold, sewage and a physically unsafe environment. Ultimately, I would ask that before you conclude that Court is wasting taxpayer dollars you consider all the facts. Lubberes

1) For more than six years the Court has been trying to work with the Commissioners to remodel the old Courthouse so that it can meet the functional needs of the Probation Department. During this whole period, despite countless hours spent working up solutions and plans, the Commissioners have refused to implement a single improvement.

What’s more, as you can see from the pictures, not only have they failed to make this location serviceable, the deterioration which they have allowed to occur is beyond comprehension. Quite frankly if more citizens were aware of how poorly this County resource was “maintained” they would be appalled and demand action.

2) As a result of the lack of any progress in remodeling and repairing the old Courthouse, the Court began exploring other locations for the Probation Department. Almost two years ago the Court requested a meeting with all the County Commissioners to further discuss this problem. At that time all the Commissioners agreed that it was cost prohibitive to accomplish even the most basic repairs to the old Courthouse (estimates of 10 to 15 million dollars), let alone the remodeling which is essential for the Probation Department to efficiently perform their work.

The Court was of the opinion that locating the Probation Department on the undeveloped floor of the Justice Center (5th floor) was the most efficient, effective, practical and economical solution. The Commissioners proposed an old, dilapidated building on Broad Street. At the conclusion of the meeting both parties agreed to draw up plans for each location so that costs, benefits and disadvantages of each option could be considered.

It took the Commissioners more than a year to develop their plan with the projected costs being 1.2 million dollars. Of course during this time the neglect of the old Courthouse continued. The Court’s proposal for the 5th floor is projected to cost 2.4 million dollars.

If one were just to compare the numbers, without any critical analysis, the Commissioners’ plan would appear to be the better economical choice. Needless to say there is more to this decision than the simple numbers. It would take too long to cover all the issues associated with the various proposals, but a few examples include:

a. Age of the Broad Street facility results in increased and ongoing maintenance and utility costs

b. Additional security personnel must be employed at Broad Street location versus utilization of existing personnel at the Justice Center

c. Broad Street location involves less efficiency and increased personnel costs as Probation staff must go back and forth repeatedly throughout the day to the Justice Center
d. Negative impact on businesses in the areas around the Broad Street location with hundreds of loitering felons.

3) On May 2nd of this year the Court’s Administrative Judge appeared at the Commissioners’ meeting to discuss the various proposals (if you have not seen the meeting you can request a public records copy through the Commissioners). At that meeting it immediately became clear that despite the hours and money that went into developing a long-term solution for the County Probation Department, the Commissioners had no intention with proceeding with any type of plan (Commissioner Williams does agree that the Justice Center option is the more practical and fiscally prudent choice). According to the other Commissioners, they simply can’t afford to do anything. This is not only unacceptable, but untrue.
4) The Court has been more than patient in trying to work with the Commissioners. In fact, I personally am embarrassed that I have let staff, for whom I am responsible, continue to work in these deplorable conditions. Though I told myself that we didn’t want to waste money on a piecemeal solution and that if we persisted we could reach some compromise with the Commissioners. Clearly I was wrong and I sincerely regret my lack of action on these employees behalf. The Judges absolutely agree that it is ludicrous to continue dumping money into the old Courthouse with no plan or objective, but legally it is the Commissioners’ prerogative where they locate these personnel. The one thing the Court can do (and should have done long ago) is insist that the Commissioners provide a facility for the Probation Department that is reasonable and necessary for the Court’s needs. In order to accomplish this we are required to employ legal counsel.

5) With respect to the Court’s retention of legal counsel, by statute the Lorain County Prosecutor is the legal representative for both the Court and the County Commissioners. Normally, the Prosecutor is able to represent both parties without any problem. However, in the event of a conflict the Prosecutor cannot legally or ethically perform services for both parties. Accordingly the Court and the Commissioners are required to employee outside legal counsel to represent our respective interests. Unfortunately, because of ethical constraints the Court’s options for legal counsel are somewhat limited. Because the attorney for the Court will be representing all of the General Division Judges, this individual would be ethically precluded from also having other cases with these Judges. Thus any attorney who regularly appears before the Court would have a conflict and not be willing to take this representation. This essentially negates the Court’s ability to hire a local attorney. Additionally, this ongoing conflict with the Commissioners implicates extremely complex and unique areas of the law. As such, we actually had a difficult time identifying and hiring an attorney who was appropriately qualified.

6) In short (I apologize I have been anything but) the Court is always willing to entertain any reasonable solution to this dilemma. In the past couple of months the Judges have appeared a number of times at the Commissioners’ meetings seeking to discuss these matters. With the exception of Commissioner Williams, all these efforts have been rebuffed.

I would encourage you to further investigate this matter for yourself. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
Tim Lubbe

AND NOW THIS TAXPAYERS PERSPECTIVE

Oh dear how awful: can you imagine working in such conditions that we in Lorain have been living in and complaining about to Judges:
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2013/01/19/the-judgement-the-community-the-criminal-the-cost/

The Mayor , the community all wanted answers and judgment to the fullest extent of the law ……check the PSI and time taken in that aspect of judiciary

We are all waiting and watching for justice to be done , as the criminals are slapped on the wrist to come back into our neighbors to continue their ways.

Brandon Perkins

LORAIN — The suspect wanted for setting fires at the Admiral King Elementary school playgrounds was arrested Saturday afternoon. Brandon Perkins, 18, of Lorain, was charged with one count of arson and is currently being held in the Lorain County Jail. Other charges may be released later this week, according to the Lorain Municipal Prosecutor’s office.
No other suspects are being sought according to Lorain Police. The estimated damage is $100,000.

And what happened to Brandon for this arson attack in our neighborhood:
http://fox8.com/2013/05/24/video-school-targeted-by-arsonist/

HAVING ENTERED A PLEA OF GUILTY AND BEEN FOUND GUILTY BY THE COURT OF THE FOLLOWING OFFENSES: COUNTS 1 & 2: ARSON, 2909.03(A)(3), F-4’S COUNTS 3 & 4: VANDALISM, 2909.05(B)(2), F-4’S DEFT SENTENCED TO: –3 YEARS COMMUNITY CONTROL, ENDING 10/2/16– SANCTIONS: BASIC SUPERVISION. PAY COSTS W/IN 3 YEARS. PAY $360 SUPERVISION FEE. PAY $5,000 IN RESTITUTION (DEDUCTIBLE) PAYABLE THROUGH CLERK W/IN 2 YEARS. ALL MONIES TO APPLY TO RESTITUTION FIRST. UP TO 3 YEAR OPTIONAL PRC. SEE JOURNAL. (RJE)

Such was the sentence handed down by Judge Ewers in October 2013.
So Brandon got 3 years community control and just this month in fact On June 18th ( yesterday as I write this ) we hear http://cp.onlinedockets.com/loraincp/case_dockets/Docket.aspx?CaseID=328735 Brandon is once again before the ‘Judge” alleged “drug possession” etc.

lpd
Even our police officers are angry:
http://www.morningjournal.com/general-news/20131102/fop-frustrated-with-light-sentence-for-7-eleven-robbery-incident

Fraternal Order of Police is worried that light sentences have made criminals feel impervious to the law.
“The criminals should fear going to judges,” Sivert said. “It’s not that way. I’ve heard criminals hoping that they get certain judges because they know they are going to get off light.”Ultimately, Sivert said that the public is going to have to decide what they feel is right and wrong.
“The citizens elect the judges and pay their salaries,” Sivert said. “The public needs to be demanding more of them. They need to tell these judges that letting criminals back on the street is not what they want.”
“As a representative of the Union, I’m saying that we won’t stand by without voicing our opinion. As a citizen, I’m hoping that others will also start demanding more.”

No certainly, we the taxpayer, wouldn’t want people to have to endure such unsafe and unsanitary conditions, such as we have to endure– Maybe if the judges lived in my “hood” they would be appalled at what we have to put up with in part due to what appears to be to the layman ( tax payers) some “slappy happy sentencing”.
2013 calls for serviceres

Because of some of their “adjudications”, the “clients of the court” are free to “loiter” in and around the library, the free food outlets and the consummate rehabilitated business people among them selling their wares……..

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/grenade-and-garbage-lorain-landlords-swatted/

Remember the flash grenades that woke us up as the police raided the 5th street residence of Victor C Brooks– well as of June 14th in Judge Rothgery’s courtroom Mr. Brooks was found guilty http://cp.onlinedockets.com/loraincp/case_dockets/Docket.aspx?CaseID=320112 we await with “bated breath the sentencing !
swat 5th street No! sorry Mr. Lubbe you get no sympathy from me.

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/you-be-the-judge-welcome-to-lorain-judge-mihok-and-george-schneider/

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2012/09/12/george-schneider-appealing-properties-or-wheres-the-judgement/

BUT whether the Judges or the Lorain County Commissioners have the right in all this I, as one of the taxpayers who pay for this nonsense would like to point out the wrong!
wrong

Here we go again fellow taxpayers, we pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars in salaries, expenses for the “professional capabilities of our employees”- We gave them the confidence of our vote and or their collective recommendations as to who to hire in various departments. BUT once again we are faced with having Cash Cow Subodh Chandra dropping us ( the tax payer ) into the field of cow patties that is the judical system.http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/06/18/judges-ante/

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/08/15/cha-chinnnng-chandra-says/
https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/08/09/cra-chandra-and-look-who-is-talking-too/

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2008/03/17/hear-ye-hear-ye-all-rise-the-right-hon-public-opinion-presiding/

WHY??????? because these seemingly intelligent , professionals cannot seem to “talk”, compromise or make one another understand a situation from their perspective. NOPE! they play the media card, whine and weedle and the scarecrow ( tax payer ) tries to stop them from robbing the field.

Would they be in such a rush to spend their own money to prove their point or get their way NO! but hey! what is a few hundred thousand , or a million in legal fees to them – they aren’t paying for it we are and we have done it before.

taxpayeres

Now these judges and yes they are the ones that have thrown down the “Chandra gauntlet” and here we go again– Each one of them before becoming a judge was an “advocate” are they telling me they have lost the ability to “advocate ” ( by sitting down and sorting this out without using more of our taxpayers money) for themselves and their employees then maybe they have lost the ability adjudicate as well.
