A lot of people re-use those blue bags for trash can liners, picking up dog poop and various other things. They will still need to use some kind of plastic bags for that. Will they still use the blue bag if they cost ten cents each? Will they start using other bags that cost less? Will they make a run to a store in a neighboring county to stock up on free bags? Will this lead to county council imposing a tax on ALL plastic bags? Seems like this could be a disaster. Cuyahoga County is already the highest taxed county in the state. Let's keep piling on more taxes.

Really worth the gas to drive out of your way to potentially save a buck or two in bags? Not me, but then again were all different.

I do reuse bags but the majority of people don't...and plastic is causing environmental problems (see great Pacific garbage patch). Not that Cuyahoga county charging for bags will fix this but changing our mental approach to single use plastic stuff will, with time. A minute step in the right direction, IMO, and paper bags work well enough. I like the Aldi approach, they have been charging for bags for years.

Back to HDTV stuff now?

It would be no big deal for those on the edge of the county. They are probably already doing that for cigarettes and alcohol.

Shoregate is about half of what it was, the western end of it was leveled for "upscale" housing & condos.... if you remember where Jotes was (now Marcs), that is the new western end.

I swore up & down never to buy Alcohol in Cuyahoga county after the sin tax imposed, yet I found I could actually pay less there, this has to be on the distributor level & is being absorbed by surrounding counties anyway. I avoid making major purchases in Cuyahoga County anyway myself, though our tax here is catching up, though I think Geauga is a .5% less now.

Not to mention our Darling E-Check Program.

Oh yes, & your Plates in Cuyahoga Country are also going to rise to fix bridges.

Why I refrain from giving to any charity, so much corruption & graft in charities, the ones that need it never receive it, as it lines administrators pockets.

I recycle 99.5 of my plastic bags anyway, even though someone profits from my "donation", it's just common sense.

Is Retro's Sunday night Programming of Offbeat Cinema prempting regular programming? The Guide appears to be different.

The ATSC 3.0 test signal appears to be on DT 31 again. I'm noticed the signal strength shot up to 100%, but I can't get any decodeable ATSC 1.0 DTV signal. So they must be testing in ATSC 3.0 mode today.

Back to TV stuff. It's nice to have Cozi on a watchable channel once again. One little annoyance is that Columbo airs on Sunday evening on both Cozi and MeTV. One has the older episodes and the other has the newer episodes. That must annoy those who like Columbo as well as those who don't like Columbo. I happen to be in the latter group.

Sadly, I still watch COZI on WEAK 41.1 at times because WKYC 3.3 still has that green tint shift in it. Not sure if the engineers are looking into the problem.

I sent ANOTHER email to Antenna TV asking them to have WJW look into their green tint on 8-2. The network always replies back telling me that my message has been forwarded to an engineer at WJW, but I never hear a thing back from the station. The engineers there must not know how to reply to emails, or they are color-blind and think I'm crazy. If the picture was upside-down and mirrored with the color inverted, they probably would not fix it.

Newer is not always better.

The newer episodes have actors you never heard of before.

I blame QVC on Channel 23.x for putting a spell on me to buy my first Pressure Cooker.

WMFD has added a new 68.3 subchannel. Last night they were running infomercials with no sound. Terrible PQ with any movement, must be running it at <1 Mbps.

Interesting. It's been a while since I last received WMFD. Any guesses on what that new sub might carry?

EDIT: OK, Someone needs to fix this Wikipedia knock-off page on WMFD. It lists a bunch of subchannels carrying anime networks. (Do those even exist?)

Newer is not always better.

No idea. They are running the same infomercial over and over with still no sound and incorrect aspect ratio. Knowing WMFD it will probably be infomercials (they run a lot of them on both 68.1 and 68.2 now) and not anything good like Decades or THIS or any of the other subs on those un-receivable LP stations.

Yep, that Wiki page is totally wrong. They have the 68.1 main channel in 1080i (with all their local news and other local programming and syndicated programming in HD), 68.2 is mostly weather and bulletin board ads (with their sister FM station as audio). 68.3 was added in the last day or so.

Good luck. How many years has this been going on? Just like the WOIO MeTV timing issues that never get fixed (though Antenna's credit crunching and bad editing of shows is way more annoying IMO).

Maybe when Sinclair takes over? I assume they will upgrade the hardware so they can add all of those Sinclair-owned subs.

I get WMFD via Dish Network in HD! It's been awhile since I bothered tuning in. I tried watching their news programs. While everything looked fine live (i.e. the news anchors in the studio) all the film clips audio was woefully out of sync. Anyone else notice this and is it still the case today?

I bet the weather maps are still the same cruddy ones looking like something out of the 1970's or 1980's, including jamming every city, every town, and every hamlet on the map! They win the award for The Worst Weather Maps I Have Ever Seen.

I get 68 every so often when a bit of local Trop visits the area or if I'm up around 5am-to-8am when some stronger signals are there. (I just checked and it's signal for me is upper teens / low 20's right now. I need 30+ to see it pop-in.)

Haven't noticed this but I don't watch them that much.

WMFD actually had syndicated programming (and local news, HS sports, and most everything else) in HD long before WBNX did.

It's the only weather subchannel left now. Better than nothing I guess.

WAOH-CD 29 is going off the air next week.

Regarding WDLI 49/17, there's still no information about what they're doing!! Are they going off the air or sharing?? For what it's worth, I drive by the WDLI building every day, and they removed the fancy TBN logo off the sign in front of the building. The studio and transmitter are located in the same spot.
