I'd be willing to bet the majority of the money earmarked for "lake cleanup" will go to administrative costs.

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 disreibutor level & is absorbed by surrounding counties anyway.

Not to mention our Darling E-Check Program.

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.
