In the news this week - the District of Columbia and nine states, including Ohio, finished in the money in the federal government's $3.4 billion education reform stimulus known as "race to the top." Ohio's share? A cool $400 million. State officials are calling it validation that our schools are on the right track. In Akron, the mayor wants to use school money to pay for safety forces. In Stark County the man in charge of money, the County Treasurer, is ousted after $2.5 million went missing on his watch. And Cleveland prepares to carry a big stick to enforce recycling. Some are calling it, "a garbage Gestapo." Join ideastream's David Molpus and tell us what you call it on The Sound of Ideas Reporters' Roundtable Friday at 9AM on 90.3.

When I moved to Cleveland in 1962 we had recycling with pick up of glass and newspaper. There was no plastic to speak of at that time.  And your trash was picked up from the rear of your house.

If Cleveland residents aren’t working, then they should have the time to properly sort their trash and put their garbage cans away.  And perhaps a fine would compel your panel member to actually check up on and discipline his 13 year old.  As a working, responsible resident of the city, someone who mows her lawn, brings in her trash and takes care of her property, I am in favor of anything that causes residents to fulfill their basic community responsibilities, and penalizes them for not doing so.  And if they can’t or won’t, they are welcome to move away.  If they do, responsible people will feel more comfortable either staying, or moving into, the city.  I can’t wait for the day when Housing Inspection becomes a reality in the city, and people are fined and punished for failure to maintain their property.
