Cleveland Councilman Mike Polensek, prayer warrior: Phillip Morris –

That#8217;s much easier said than done. There#8217;s much to fear. There is also reason for hope #8211; silver linings in Collinwood if you look hard enough.

If you drive up East 185th Street, which is the major North/South thoroughfare between Lake Shore Boulevard and Euclid Avenue, the potential of this area of the city remains obvious. There is the proximity to the lake. There are strong retail establishments, including fine dining along with mom and pop restaurants, a fantastic florist, well-established neighborhood bars, and a full-service grocery store.

#8220;Those murders rocked this neighborhood. But we#8217;re resilient. Thanks to incredible work by the Cleveland police, the FBI, the U.S. Marshals, we appear to have identified the low lives that killed this working couple for no damn reason. The community also played a major role in helping find the people we believe responsible. Tips from the public were so valuable. People were willing to speak up about what they knew,#8221; said Polensek.

#8220;I#8217;m still praying that the killers of Mr. Halton are also brought to justice,#8221; Polensek said. #8220;I#8217;m hearing that good leads are being developed on that case as well. If people know something, they just have to say something. That#8217;s how you help save a neighborhood.#8221;

Halton, 30, was shot and killed at an RTA bus stop in January 2014, as he waited to catch a bus to the Cleveland Clinic, where he worked as an anesthesiology technician. He had been called in early that morning for work, but was gunned down by an unknown assailant.
