Mallory's Briefings Return

After a holiday hiatus, Mayor Mark Mallory's weekly Tuesday press briefings returned today. Here's some stuff you might want to know:

1. He'll give the State of the City speech Feb. 4, 6:30 p.m. at Playhouse in the Park, Mount Adams. Invitations will be sent out this week. "I think we had a very successful year last year, so we'll have a lot to talk about."

2. January is National Mentoring Month, and he'll be having a press conference Thursday, 10 a.m., Cintas Center, to talk about mentoring initiatives, including a new one he'll announce then.

3. The deadline for neighborhoods to apply to get a mural by MuralWorks this year is Jan. 15. Call 333-0388 or go to http://www.artworkscincinnati.org/.

4. Friday, he expects recommendations from the Go Cincinnati study, led by Councilman Chris Bortz and Chamber of Commerce president Ellen van Der Horst. Among them, he's sure - a recommendation to push ahead on streetcars. "I'll have to sift thorugh them, see what I like, see what I don't like."

5. He likes the idea of a Cincinnati Film Festival. "Let me tell you, I am very interested in that concept. We have a very rich film industry in the city of Cincinnati, considering we are not L.A., Chicago or New York." The $120,000 in funding mentioned by CityBeat writer Kevin Osborne, Mallory said, "doesn't seem like a lot of money to me."

According the The Enquirer, Mallory also said the story about Streicher and cops at his aunt's funeral is over.


Streicher takes cops, presumably, off the beat for private purposes, lies about it to The Enquirer, gets caught and pays .

This from the guy who fired Twitty over a fender bender?

Come on, Mark, get some guts. Or borrow some.

I see you don't have the cajones to publish Joey Ramone's comments about the "mother of 6" lie.
The front page Mallory ad was bad enough. Filling that puff piece with outright lies and misinformation shows that the Enquirer has zero journalistic integrety.
The Mayor is already saying that some facts were wrong......He knows the family myth is in danger of exposure.

"I think we had a very successful year last year, so we'll have a lot to talk about."

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for Mark's crime reduction initiatives. Remember? This was a pack of lies he fed the voters while on the campaign trail.

Oh, I know! He's going to talk about his family, introducing everyone to the real Mommies & coming clean on residence addresses!! Maybe we'll get the real deal on Dale's employment at GE. We already know about that 1997 welching on a loan agreement Dale made with CadleRock.

That family picture was a hoot! All that was missing were the violin & beetleback mandolin cases. The women should have been given Saturday night specials to pose with. They all looked like a bunch of underworld people.

How these people can continue lying to the general public just baffles me. Oh, I'm sure they sleep soundly at night. When one doesn't have a conscience & morals, I guess one can do just about anything.

And this Mayor is going to launch a mentoring project??!! Oh, don't tell me - it's all about successfully lying & pulling the wool over the public's eyes.

I think it's time for the Enquirer to start delving into the honest truth & facts about this outfit. It's long overdue & an election is looming.

Where is the diversity in the department head selections?

Funny, as a Senator and during the riots Mallory had nothing good to say about Streicher, but since the Chief gave Mark his buddy Scotty, all is well!

The Whistleblower is doing a great set of pieces about the puff Mallory front page story.
Mr. Kane is probing each lie told in the story.
His story is well documented. It is quite specific on the Enquirer's version of the family tree and the ACTUAL tree.
