Beacon Journal | 08/11/2005 | Plusquellic docks self day's pay for cursing
Now Plusquellic has done a lot of good for the city, but he has annoyed a lot of people - he still don't get it is about the neighborhoods and you can't put ALL the money into downtown development.
Frankly the whole story is stupid, and guy lost his job over it. Both sides needed to get some perspective - it was an empty lot and given the mayor's needs (he could not be blocked in just in case he neeeded to respond to an emergency) the car could have been put anywhere. Most of the lots in Akron are self-parking anyways, which means they have little lines painted on the ground to show where the cars should be parked. It ain't tough.
