If we had a tax increase, ONLY TO EMPLOY MORE POLICE, I would be more than willing to pay. If we don't do something, we will lose more than the amount of the tax increase! We need to send a stronger message: Don't commit crimes, especially against people, in Cleveland Heights because you WILL be caught immediately and you will be dealt with HARSHLY.

BTW, "Sport" is "3Sport." The 3 got lost. My friends will know who I am. I reply frequently. I love Cleveland Heights, and I have lived here since 1981.
