In April, Council rejected improving Industrial Avenue which is in Edwards ward between Eagle Avenue and Fulton Road due to at least $38,000 in back taxes. Auditor Ron Mantini said five of the nine assessed parcel owners owe taxes. The rejection came after Councilman Joe Koziura, D-at large, asked about a report he requested from Mantini on unpaid assessments. Mantini said Lorain is owed $115,000 in assessments on a 1987 project and $70,000 on a 1983 project. http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/07/28/road-less-traveled-horrible-shape/

Oswalt, who said he has lobbied Council to fix the road for a decade, said neighbors have spent thousands of dollars for car repairs due to the roads condition and the city will no longer reimburse them for damage claims. He said school buses wont drive down the road when it floods, and cars have to be pushed out when it snows. Oswalt said he and next door neighbor Andrew Olic maintain a 50-yard-long drainage ditch at the intersection of Dayton and W. 38th that frequently floods. http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/07/28/road-less-traveled-horrible-shape/

“We talked before the game about him stepping up and getting another opportunity to go into the rotation and he did exactly that,” Redmond said. Turner’s performance was an improvement after he went 2-4 with a 6.38 ERA in nine starts before being moved to the bullpen last month. Giancarlo Stanton is 5 for 11 during Miami’s three-game win streak and had a three-run double Saturday. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/marlins-astros-preview-050814472–mlb.html
