They should just turn the entire City of Sandusky into one giant parking lot.

   The local catholic diocese has been entirely uncooperative in making a reasonable rental arrangement with the city of Sandusky for a chunk of land that is part of Mills Creek Gold course.  And yet now they feel "entitled" to local government help.  Yep, that's how things work around here. 

Truth or Dare

Okay, let me get this straight, taxpayer funds will be used to tear down  3 homes that belong to a Church, but people in 3 Ohio counties who'se homes were destroyed get ZERO help?! 

Exxcellent

Perkins2060: and they should plow down that shack you live in as well.

LOL

Money for this but none for the Tornado victims in Toledo.

NOW, before you open your dumb mouth brutus, OBAMA toured that tornado area and it was HIS FEMA that turned them down.
Why did he play golf more than do his JOB?

WOrthless piece of ..............

Exxcellent

No, seriously, Perkins: I've seen your house. It should be on the list of demolished homes. What a dump.

So , we don't have a problem giving money to tornado victims in a small town in Ohio but screw keeping benefits for the unemployed who are going to start losing them , 200,000 families a week . Why are we such Hippocrates. Until it happens in my backyard or to me we just keep our heads in the sand. Republicans are obviously using the current situation as a way to sway voters in the next elections. It's sad to see how many fall for the transparent attempt .It's still federal money and something individual states should be able to take care of in a healthy economy . Right . Where are the conservatives who would say ,leave the houses intact and not add to the deficit . wouldn't  a true conservative say that these tornado victims should of had insurance to cover such circumstances. Sounds more cold and callus when it's more personal doesn't it ?

If any of you think all of this is ridiculous..I live on W. Adams Street and my home was 1 of along with 4 others on the same block that were supposed 2 be demolished by the same people that paid 4 them but instead now all of the sudden the city is paying 4 it! I'm not in jeopardy but think this is bull sh** that the city is paying for this when they have paid 4 more than 6 houses in the past year! So y in the hail can't they pay for demolishing costs instead of the city turning money over for them 2 make a parking lot??? This is just crap
