Sambino’s Pizza, White’s Auto Care pitch in for Elyria fireworks

ELYRIA — Two local businesses want to help bring fireworks back to Elyria.

Both Sambino’s Pizza and White’s Auto Care are pledging a portion of their revenue to the city’s fireworks fund, a fundraising effort to bring a display back to the city around the Fourth of July.

“We’re doing this just to help out the community,” said Ashley Randolph, general manager at Sambino’s. “We all remember what it was like to have the fireworks in Elyria.”

The pizzeria, 360 Cleveland St., will donate 10 percent of its sales to the fireworks fund every Thursday between Tuesday and May 8. Residents do not need a special code or flier. Sambino’s just would like residents to do their part by ordering pizza on Thursdays.

“Every order that we take in that day will go to the city fund. It’s that simple,” Randolph said.

The city last sponsored a fireworks show in 2008. It was the first and last year the city moved the festivities to West Park on Foster Avenue. Before that, the show was at Cascade Park.

Mayor Holly Brinda is hoping to bring back the tradition, but she said she needs community donations to restore the event because city finances are too tight to allow tax dollars to be spent on the festivities. Brinda has set a goal of raising $60,000 by May 15.

If the money is raised by the target date, the plan is to hold a fireworks display at West Park on July 2 with a rain date of July 3.

Greg White, of White’s Auto Care at 578 Cleveland St., said he remembers watching the Elyria fireworks as a child. He has pledged to donate $10 of every service invoice between now and May 1 to the fund. So far, he has accumulated $100.

“I used to watch them as a kid, and it would be nice for them to come back,” he said. “It makes sense for me to help in any way I can.”

Resident who would like to donate to the fund can do so on the city’s website. Checks payable to the City of Elyria Fireworks Fund can be mailed to 131 Court St., Elyria, OH 44035.

For more information, call (440) 326-1402.

    RE-PRINT:

    I’d Like to see Big Donations from the Unions representing the various Departmental Employees fund the Fireworks, and a one-day waiver of Union Contracts so that the Safety Forces can donate in-kind services to make the whole day/evening a more affordable and Patriotic Event.

    Then, I’d like to see $1.00 from every recipient of Welfare go towards this fund as a gesture of giving back. Let’s make 2014 the Year where over-taxed citizen/property owners are treated by those who can afford to purchase a $1.00 Lottery Ticket weekly. Challenge them to only spend $51.00 this year, and give the other buck for the show on July 4th.

    Lastly, its about time L.C.C.C. ponies up a big check. I’m calling on each and every professor, administrator and professional staff at the tax-payer subsidized conglomerate on Abbe Road to toss in $100.00 each.

    I’m certain that a spectacular display could be arranged if these three groups of citizens would step up and give the Taxpayers a much needed break from always being asked to fund this, or to fund that.

    Let’s see if the Clique is listening.

    • Pete

      I would like to see Sis make a donation along with every resident of Elyria. I’m guessing you are a freeloader since you post non-stop on here.

      • stillsleepyeyes

        your both funny………………your likely to see sis donate just as much as your going to see the unions and lccc donate………….

      • Sis Delish

        From 10-Days ago.. in answer..

        I am not donating. It’s time for the groups who have burdened the citizens to start giving back. I’m being INCLUSIVE by inviting those members of society who typically Take to Give, ready for this, a “smidgen” back.

        • Pete

          So you are exempt from stepping up? I bet those union workers haven given more to charity in money and time in one year than you have in your lifetime. I have no way of proving you haven’t given just like you cant prove that you have so let’s just step down from your soapbox and realize you aren’t any better then the ones you talk down about on here.

          • Sis Delish

            Yes, I am exempt.

            You see, in Your World, Your Type demands that those with the deepest pockets should be taxed the most. Okay, let’s see how that works in My World.

            In Elyria, the Unions have the deepest pockets. The Call for Unions to fund Fireworks is a request that funds normally going to Democrat Candidates and Campaigns from the massive amount of Union Dues paid by, yep, Taxpayers be re-directed to benefit all citizens, not just your party.

            L.C.C.C. also has very deep pockets. They, too, have the Levy Power to take more out of the citizen’s pockets to fund new buildings, bigger paychecks for the staff, and more retirement benefits for the administration and educators. Origin of those funds: yep, Taxpayers.

            The Welfare System is not without Deep Pockets.. asking for a Dollar from each beneficiary out of the thousands provided each year is excessive?

            All Three Examples above are funded by shallow pockets of taxpayers like you and I.

            I suggest you revisit your opinions to reflect the fact that taxpayers have already “given more to charity in money and time…a.k.a. TAXES” to a more realistic viewpoint.

            Capice?

          • Pete

            What you fail to understand is that those union workers pay just as much in taxes as you do. You are a typical Republican, take but don’t give back. Like I said, you can’t prove anything but you will whine about it. Get a life.

          • Sis Delish

            For Pete’s Sake!

            I’ve offered a method of funding Your fireworks.

            You’ve turned your anger into a personal matter.

            My method is well thought and targeted.

            Your replies suggest we don’t need funding for the 4th… we’ll just watch you sparkle and glow after dark. Problem solved.

          • Pete

            Not my fireworks, and I see your method keeps you from paying anything. Typical!

          • Sis Delish

            Pete, Peter, Petie… The Taxes already paid to A City, L.C.C.C. and the Federal Government left my bank account already, not by my choice, but because of folks like You continue to pass every new Tax/Levy that comes from your constituency and Your Party.

            Those taxes pay Employees of The City, L.C.C.C. and Welfare Recipients. Those employees represented by a Union who also work for The City or L.C.C.C. have dues taken from them every payday.

            Here’s today’s Bonus Question: Where do the monies taken from City/L.C.C.C. employees in the form of Union Dues Originate from?

            Now, to substantiate my claims, go visit one of your neighbors, ask to see their Pay Stub and their Property Tax Bill. The numbers I refer to are on those documents as Deductions. That means those dollars earned are no longer their’s.

            They belong to The City, L.C.C.C. and Welfare Recipients.

            All that is being asked for by my suggestion on how to fund the fireworks this year is a Rebate.

            Heck, even Car Companies give Rebates if you Spend enough with them. I believe the average property owner in this town pays enough to request a Rebate, don’t you?

          • Sis Delish

            Pete. Those union workers pay just as much taxes? Aren’t they the same group who uses their Union Dues to lobby on behalf of more taxes to pay their salaries and benefits which the rest of the population then helps them pay more taxes? Vicious cycle to prove a point.

          • Bill Love

            how are union dues taxpayers money?. and before you start im not in the union and i am a republican but some of the stuff you type does not add up

          • Sis Delish

            My reference to “Unions representing the various Departmental Employees” perhaps is not clear. The departmental employees mean those working on the City Payroll.

          • Pete

            All city employees and staff of L.C.C.C. pay just as much into taxes as you do, maybe more. A very small amount of every ones taxes goes for wages. You just want something for free and that is sad. You are a Gimme Gimme person.

          • Sis Delish

            You, Sir are ignorant and that’s being nice. There is absolutely no way for you to quantify your statement. And, your ignorance of the topic is astonishing, too.

          • golfingirl

            Maybe some of us just think fireworks are a waste of money!

          • golfingirl

            I’ll answer that one.

            Fact 1-the majority of union workers work in the public sector.

            Fact 2- these union workers pay to belong to a union.

            Fact 3- public sector wages are paid by the taxpayers.

            Therefore, taxpayers are paying the unions.

            Pretty simple actually.

          • Sis Delish

            Yep, no Common Core Calculations Contributed to this.

    • Mark B

      hold your breath on that one , the unions are a one way service , they take , take and take some more and cry that it is not enough. The wont ever give back , unless it is trivial

      • Pete

        Pot, meet kettle. Let’s see your list of donations Mark B. I know for a fact that Police and Fire give many hours and money to many charities. You and Sis need to get a clue before spouting off. Get Educated!!!

      • Sis Delish

        Use to be that Events such as these were highly-prized organizing opportunities for Big Labor… Those guys with the Big Cigars would host Picnics and Fireworks as a way of showing their muscle.

        Now, Cigars are frowned on, Picnics are too expensive and Big Labor is small.

    • golfingirl

      Or just get in your car and drive to Avon, Avon Lake, Bay Village,,,etc and watch their fireworks display.

      Problem solved!

      • Bob Owens

        Yep, and you can avoid seeing ‘Those people”.

        • Sis Delish

          Even the Crew of the Titanic had to make a decision on who got the lifeboats…

  • ched

    It’s Pretty SAD to see the Negative and Bickering Back and Forth Comments, on something that has been a Tradition in the City of Elyria for Years. If you don’t have anything nice to say….then don’t say It! Plain & Simple!!!

    • Sis Delish

      Ched, what is sad is the Mayor’s office begging the populace for donations. The City is in Bad shape. It cannot afford the cost of this event unless the municipal Unions set aside their contracts and agree to provide the necessary services without their Union limitations and overtime. It’s Civic Pride at stake.

      The College on N. Abbe is Flush with Cash. They could easily write a Big Check. Big Business ain’t gonna donate. They have a hostile work environment in Elyria.

      It’s the Unions and the College which benefit from the relentless call for More Levies and More Taxes… It’s Their turn to give back.

      And, if folks with EBT cards purchasing steak and beer at Giant Eagle cannot fork over a dollar for the effort, then why reward them with free entertainment?

      These are real questions that I’ve not heard one legit answer to-date.

  • Carrie Watson

    I would like to see the fireworks brought back, but what’s the mayor’s plan for continuing to offer the fireworks after this July?

    • golfingirl

      No plan.

    • Sis Delish

      Rumors are, she’s contemplating hiring Bill Grace to emcee all future 4th events… they are negotiating with BG’s Agent. LOL

      • It has to stop

        If they have Grace sitting atop a dunking booth filled with tar and feathers then I’m in. Hell they would make enough to fund fireworks in Elyria for years.

        • Sis Delish

          If they put the dunking booth in the Median on Rte. 57, just imagine the donations…

    • SniperFire

      Her plans for continuing them are in the same file with her plans to stem the growing urban blight, decay and joblessness in her city.

  • anation

    Sis not everyone on welfare just sits on their behind and just takes…. I went many years raising my kids without an ounce of help from any kind of assistance. And one day I was let go from my job and had no choice to get help. I still work full time but only make half the money I use to so I still need help. But I am currently going to school so I can get a better job making more so that I wont need it. So for you to say everyone on welfare needs to step up and give back is not right because I know I’m not the only one with this situation there are others on it just like me. And not only do I work and pay taxes I also pay property taxes for Elyria too…. So if I need to step up you do too.

    • Sis Delish

      anation. So that I hear you correctly, you feel that $1.00 is too much to ask for, correct?

      • anation

        Obviously you didnt here me correctly I basicly said you are demanding certain types or groups of people need to donate because you said you do enough when I pay mine too. So now your trying to say a dollar is too much for me when your the one making a big deal on who needs to donate…. Im going to donate and it’ll be more than a dollar. I actually donate to different charities along with numerous other things I do for people on a regular basis. So what I was really trying to tell you is stop judging people and thinking your better then certain types of people. If I was to demand anyone to donate I would just Ask all residents donate at least a dollar an others who can do more please do…. Dont that sound better then putting someone down and telling them what they need to do?

        • SniperFire

          Do you think it is right for you welfare types to be able to vote yourself other people’s money?

          • anation

            You welfare types???? I pay property taxes yes I have every right to vote!!!! And there are alot of people not on welfare that dont pay the city property taxes and get to vote on issues that raise home owners taxes….. There is a difference between someone using it to get help and someone using it as a crutch….Ive spent way more years off assistance than i have on. Ive paid my fair share to this city and country just like you and others i deserve to get help if i need it . I wont be on it forever i am one of few doing something so i dont need it I honestly hate being on it. So for you to say you “TYPES” is ignorant…. Maybe one day all the people that want to bash everyone on it instead of just the ones that make a career out of it will lose their jobs and keep getting over looked for other jobs you are qualified for and have to settle for less and suck up your pride and ask for help then maybe you will understand why I get mad when ignorant people feel like their better for some reason…

          • SniperFire

            ‘You welfare types?’

            Yes. You people who collect welfare from the rest of us. Did I stutter? And you ducked the question. Let’s try again.

            Do you think it is right for you welfare types to be able to vote yourself other people’s money?

          • anation

            I guess i was studdering lol…I should know better than to argue with ignorance….Now you seem to be attacking me personally with all this “You” stuff. Why wouldnt it be right for me to when others not on welfare that dont even pay as much as I do in taxes get to and that seems to be ok… Im not taking nothing from anyone Im just taking my money back now that I need to… You can think what you want about ‘My Type” Which I have a Trade and Im almost done with another degree so when I finally get an opportunity at a job in my field I wont need it and most likely make more then you and ill will Go Back to doing my so called fair share as some of you say…. Does that make you feel better??

          • SniperFire

            I notice you ducked the question again. ROTFL.

  • golfingirl

    From above:

    “…..10 percent of its sales to the fireworks fund every Thursday between Tuesday and May 8″…..

    So exactly when does one have to buy a pizza to have a percent go to the firework’s fund?

    Kind of confusing as written above.

    • Pete

      Now I understand why you seem so lost…EVERY THURSDAY FROM NOW UNTIL MAY 8TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • golfingirl

        It says “every Thursday between Tuesday and May 8. ”

        Another fine job of proof reading by the CT.

    • Sis Delish

      I only eat Pizza on Wednesdays, and my designated Car Wash day is Friday, but I gave that up until Summer.

  • golfingirl

    I pledge to donate one dime of every tax dollar collected by the City of Elyria to the Fireworks Fund.

    Oh wait, I can’t do that. They just take my tax dollars and spend them as they please.

    I take that back!

    • Pete

      That would be nice of you but a hollow comment since you live in Avon Lake. You also would most likley whine if the city you DO pay taxes in would use that money for fireworks.

      • golfingirl

        Yes I would. Fireworks are a waste of money in my opinion.

        • Greg White

          I got news for you, The city of Avon Lake does pay for them. They have for years. There is a story on the patch from 2011 when Mayor Zuber was in office.

          • golfingirl

            You are assuming I live in Avon Lake.

  • Sis Delish

    For those of you, who are not internet saavy like Harry Ried suggests, here is the latest tally from the Mayor’s website on the Fundraising efforts:

    Target Amount: $60,000.00
    Amount Raised: $1,274.29
    Amount remaining to hit Target: $58,725.61

    Get busy, eat Pizza and Clean Your Vehicles.

    • golfingirl

      Harry Reid says your are a “Liar.”

      • Sis Delish

        Harry Reid is Nancy Pelosi without the lipstick… both are loons.

        • Air and Light

          Name calling. Not the way to earn credibility.

          • Sis Delish

            Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are liars and loons.

    • Air and Light

      When you go to church this week, ask them to pitch in.

      • Sis Delish

        Looks like you’re having an Iffy-Fit.

  • Jimmy Long

    I really enjoy the comments from golfingirl, she amuses me with her negativity and her lack of intelligence. I just can’t believe that out of 10,000 sperm she was the quickest.

    • golfingirl

      Not sure what amusement you find in following me around these boards, offering no insight to any topic under discussion. Your comments consist of nothing but referring to me, and others here, as “stupid,” “ignorant” and “senseless.”

      Are you the same Jimmy Long who is the current president of the Lorain Growth Corporation? Been there since 2007? The same group who the City of Lorain refused to appropriate any further Community Development Block Grants in 2009, for the following reason:

      “No written plan was presented by the Lorain Growth Corporation to ensure objectives would be addressed and achieved. LGC has not presented a formal report to Lorain City Council detailing how past subsidies were utilized and the results. LCG has been integral for the downtown in the past but has fragmented its focus and lacks direction currently.” Two years after you went there.

      In 2006, the revenue for LCG was $128,349. In 2012, it was only $28,655, under your “leadership.”

      So what have you done for the City of Lorain? Your sole accomplishment seems to be an annual steak fry. Lorain looks worse now, than it did in 2007, when you started there.

      And you have the nerve to say I am “stupid.” Really? Tell me, you are not the same Jimmy Long, or are you? You should be embarrassed. Your performance is horrendous, if you are.

      No wonder you cannot bring any business into Lorain. You probably don’t want any new companies coming into town, unless they employ union workers. Well guess what, that shipped has sailed! Get over it!

      So where are your union buddies when it comes time for your fundraising efforts? Looks like they let you down my friend.

  • Jimmy Long

    Why would anyone want to belong to a union . Could it be that they have fought for the working class. Do you get breaks at work? How about paid vacations, social security, overtime pay, workers comp.,pensions,sick leave,minimum wage, and maybe even unemployment insurance? These are just a few things that unions have fought for the working people of America. Got these? Thank the Unions for fighting for you. Dont like it , go see a movie this weekend. But before you go, just remember, they belong to a union too. Union Proud

    • Sis Delish

      Jimmy. We get it, you are hanging on to the Past. Yes, your Union Legacy has managed to accumulate a lot of Union Dues in the process… Seems like its time to give back, how ’bout a Rebate to the citizens?

      Why not Fund the Fireworks this year? Is there a good reason, or is THAT management’s expense as well?

    • SniperFire

      Please. Most of those gains were made possible thru automation that fueled worker productivity, producing more profit per worker, which enabled our industries to overpay unskilled workers with the benefits you describe. That worked great for a while, and now the rest of the world has copied and caught up.

      Now, with some exceptions, union workers are basically overpaid slugs destroying the American way of life, particularly in the public sector. Got Detroit?

  • Jimmy Long

    Sis Delish, what color is sky in your world? I’m all in for the working people union or not. Sounds to me you just want a free ride . As for donating, our union has donated monies to numerous charities and for people in need. I bet that i have donated more money to charities last year alone then you have in a lifetime. Every year the labor unions sponsor a labor day fest for all labor, union or not, we have hot dogs and soda pops to purchase for a quarter. We also supply snacks and donate gifts for all who purchase a free ticket to be eligible to win prizes which total in the $10,000-$20,000 range. All of the labor unions donate to this with no cost to whoever wishes to come down. Sounds like a good freebie for you. Like to see you there but, i’ve got a feeling you may be to busy sitting on your sofa watching your t.v.

    • SniperFire

      Bolshevik – Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party

      Nazi – National Socialist German Workers’ Party

      Mao – Communist Workers’ Party

      Pol Pot – Workers Party of Kampuchéa

      NEA / AFLCIO /Teamsters – ?

      Where we heading, folks?

    • Sis Delish

      When you have yet another paid day off from work, especially one named after your cause at the end of the Summer, you should foot the bill. Why stop there? Sounds as if your Union runs a very profitable enterprise, and can afford some luxuries.

      The 4th (or in this case, the 2nd or 3rd) is for All Citizens, not just those you and your organization deem worthy and can retain dues from.
      (On a side note, isn’t it sad that we cannot even celebrate a the Nation’s Birthday on The Traditional Date because of Union Contracts and work rules make the cost prohibitive?)

      The Challenge remains: AFL/CIO and all its affiliates, write the Big Check for Elyria’s 4th of July Fireworks Fund. Then, suspend all your labor contracts for the period of July 2 to July 3 to accommodate the citizens of Elyria by foregoing overtime and any other special compensation to make certain its a safe event.

      I’m certain the City could muster up the will to provide you and your members with the necessary waivers on liability, or whatever else might be in the way. Who knows, it may even soften the next round of Contract Negotiations…

      And, lets not forget the NEA and other education-based labor organization who have the Summer off… This group could get onboard by donating time to clean up after the event, provide parking assistance, and perform other niceties to reflect their appreciation for the nice new buildings they received from the citizens… Just imagine how this show of pride in the city could be used to Teach the lil’ones and the High Schoolers how to give back.

      A pipe dream of sorts, especially since there are Unions involved. The definition of Union should be incentive enough for those who benefit from its formation to come together and give back.

      As far a watching on my sofa… PBS has a wonderful broadcast from the Mall and the Capitol, broadcast in HD with 5.1 sound which is very enjoyable… on the 4th… not the 2nd or the 3rd..

      We on the upper end of the food chain have Home Theatres, however. Sofas are soooo 70s. And, we can watch out for the folks prowling the neighborhoods when the mass migration to the fireworks leaves their homes unattended for Elyria’s opportunists, a.k.a. thieves.

  • Jimmy Long

    Hey sis delish, its so cute when you try to talk about things you dont understand. I tried reading you comments over and over, please tell me your joking because if ignorance is bliss, you must be one happy individual.

    • Sis Delish

      Jimmy. Go ahead, let’s hear your analysis. Or, will you just come back with “I’m all for Unions”.

  • Jimmy Long

    Go ahead, tell me everything you know, ive got 15 seconds

  • Sis Delish

    Okay, 15 seconds… Go, kiss Ed Schultz on the mouth. He’s a Real Role Model.

    There, I lowered my conversation level to yours… doesn’t get much accomplished, but if you get a tingle up your leg by the mention of Ed Schultz, then at least I know I’m getting through to the remaining brain cells.

    Fireworks Fundraising Update. From the Mayor’s Website:

    Target Amount: $60,000.00
    Amount Raised: $1,274.29
    Amount remaining to hit Target: $58,725.61

    No change since last reporting. No Reported Contributions or Pledged Amounts from:

    Government Worker Unions,
    including Police, Fire and Teacher in-kind contributions in contract waivers.

    Government Sponsored L.C.C.C. Faculty and Staff.
    To be fair, they may all be in Mexico drinking Tequela or other fine exotic places for Spring Break.

    Government Paid Welfare Recipients. They don’t have access to the Internet except at the Library where they are discouraged from using the Internet for transactions involving EBT cards. Might have to go door-to-door in Section 8 communities for this.

    Six weeks remain. At the Current Rate of $1,274.29/week, let’s see what the campaign might achieve… (note: NOT using Common Core Math to Calculate)

    Past Week: $1,274.29 + Next Week: $1,274.29 + Week Two: $1,274.29 + Week Three: $1,274.29 Week Four: + $1,274.29 + Week Five: $1,274.29 + Final Week: $1,274.29 = Projected Total at Mid-May Cut-off Date: $8,920.03

    $60,000.00 – $8,920.03 = $51,079.97, or $8,513.33 per week shortfall.

    That’s a lot of Pizzas and Car Washes at 10% of Sales.

    Please, Citizens of Elyria, EAT MORE Sambino’s Pizza, and Wash More Cars! Elyria’s Mayor Deflates Fundraising Goal from $60k to $45k.
