People ask why I keep asking questions about Maple Heights government, and especially the underbelly of Maple Heights government/politics.  Well, it's because there are things that occur that are dark, horrific, corrupt, and well hidden or kept in secret places.  Is anyone else volunteering to ask the hard questions, to investigate?

I understand why politicians and others in government don't want to talk about these things.  It's because these things reflect badly on them and may even get them in some serious trouble.  Sorry, things don't always go the way you want them to go, and some people must take responsibility for their actions and the actions of others.

Politicians spin all day long.  A constant stream of contrived, neatly put together packages of information that make them, and those special people around them, look good.  Don't get me wrong, the good things are to be applauded; however, we still have to recognize it as spin, and it may be just a short term fix and not a long term solution.

Anyway, beneath the spin there's sometimes  a stench, and when you try to uncover the origins of the stench, there's resistance.

I'm told Gary Marable was found hanging in a Maple Heights jail around May of this year, but I doubt the residents of Maple Heights know about it; and my question is why hasn't city council called for an investigation into Mr. Marable's death?  They have the authority to do it (or so I've been told), so why hasn't it been done, or if it has been done, what are the findings, and what are they going to do to make sure it never happens again?
We're waiting ....

Do you know what's very interesting? As of this date, we can't find anything about Maple Heights on the Cleveland Challenger where Gary's name was first mentioned. Can't even find an article mentioning Irene Crowell. Further SOH?? Who knows what will pop up on the Cleveland Challenger tomorrow.
