    Each November, Major League Baseball teams are faced with the difficult task of protecting certain players from the consequences of the Rule 5 draft. On Thursday, the Cleveland Indians were one of the first teams to announce their protected players. In total, the Indians are protecting five prized minor leagues by adding them to their official 40-man roster. The five players are third baseman Giovanny Urshela, reliever Shawn Armstrong, starter Cody Anderson, catcher Tony Wolters and lefty Ryan Merritt. The first four were expected additions while Merritt is a bit of a surprise. Let’s…

  • Panel Votes to Send Controversial "Heartbeat Bill" to Full Ohio House

    20 Nov 2014 | 3:30 pm
    A House panel voted Thursday morning to send the controversial "heartbeat bill", House Bill 248, which would put in place restrictions on access to abortion, to the full House for debate. The bill, which was approved by the Health and Aging committee by a vote of 11-6, would prohibit abortion once a fetal heartbeat has been detected, something which can occur as early as six weeks into a woman's pregnancy. The vote to push the bill to the floor came after testimony in which the threat of a lawsuit against the state of Ohio was made clear. Gary Daniels of the ACLU in Ohio told legislators that…

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — After nearly 40 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, Ricky Jackson will soon walk out of the Justice Center a free man. Jackson and two other men were convicted of a murder in 1975 that they did not commit. It was finally revealed this week when a lone eyewitness confessed that he lied. Eddie Vernon, who was 12 at the time, said investigators pressured him to testify that he saw Ricky Jackson and two brothers kill a money order collector. There was no physical evidence connecting the men to the crime, and informants tried to tell police that the murder…

  • Ohio House Advances Bill That Would Shield Names of Pharmaceutical Companies Supplying Execution Drugs

    20 Nov 2014 | 3:13 pm
    On Thursday, Ohio lawmakers advanced a measure - House 663 - that would shield the name of pharmacies that supply the drugs that are used in lethal injections for a period of twenty years, and would also permit the state to resume executing condemned inmates in 2015. Representatives in the Republican-controlled Ohio House voted 62 to 27 to advance the bill, which will next go to the Senate. For the state to resume executions next year, the bill must be approved before lawmakers adjourn in December. The state of Ohio and other states that have the death penalty have been forced to seek out…

Brook Park Mayor Tom Coyne, who had mentioned looking into privatizing the emergency services at the state of the city address last week, was greeted by hundreds of firefighters from areas as far away as Columbus and Sandusky at the city council meeting held Tuesday night.

The last time Bill Demora gaveled to order such a vote, he pounded that gavel to help shout down Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones while forcing through Ron Malone's Marion Mafia's choice for chair, Redfern.

    San Hannibal from Pop! Goes the Icon is the some of the best detective noir work in years. Some might be tempted to compare it to Frank Miller’s Sin City, but the style of storytelling in San Hannibal goes back to a genre older than those intertwining tales. Instead, it might more readily be seen in the written works of Dashiell Hammett: gritty, practically gut-wrenching tales that would come to the screen (a little scrubbed up) as The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man. San Hannibal is a collaborative work headed by Dan Schkade. His writing boldly continues the coarsely poetic first-person…

Its cover art by Greg Winters (whom many may remember from his Star Wars work) best sums up the experience of play: powerful, mysterious starships racing through treacherous fields of novae and asteroids, blasting one another. In gameplay, The Amega Weapon is reminiscent of archetypal family board games: roll the dice, draw the card, and strategize to beat opponents.

    The City of Cleveland hasn’t had a legitimately contested mayoral election since 2005, with incumbent Frank Jackson having run essentially unopposed in the two elections since then. Jackson will be the longest-serving Mayor in Cleveland’s 200+year history by the time his current term is up, and now folks are hearing that he’ll run for yet another four-year term in 2017. There’s less reason than ever to suggest that it’s not his if he wants it. Case in point, this year’s Ohio gubernatorial race that incumbent Republican John Kasich is expected to win in a…

    On June 6, 1944, the biggest invasion fleet in the history of the world set forth from the Eastern ports of England, bound for the beaches of Normandy, France. D-Day, as it is commonly referred to now, featured the combined arms of the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, all under the care of U.S. General (and later President) Dwight David Eisenhower. Ike was ultimately responsible for the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers, and ultimately the fate of the free world. The Supreme Allied Commander wrote two speeches in the days leading up to D-Day, one to use if the landings were able…

It’s starting to sink in, but it still doesn’t make a ton of sense. The Indians went 10-9 against the Royals this year, finishing up four games behind them in the chase for the 2ndAL Wild Card berth. The two teams appear similar when you look at those two stats, but in reality they couldn’t be more different.

    If it was luck, we’d be screwed. No, there’s something else going on around here that’s responsible for our recent good fortune. Hard work? Sure. I’ll take that over luck any day. Karma? Certainly our region’s got it coming. Wits? Common sense? Our stunning good looks? Whatever it is, it’s anything but luck. You’d be lucky to get to everything we’ve cued up for you this week: Near West doing JC Superstar as they get ready to make their big move to Gordon Square; the dude abiding at 78th Street; Cleveland Vegan opening in Lakewood, and Creative…
  • REVIEW: Classic ‘The Great Gatsby’ @EnsembleTheater

      F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby, which many consider one of the greatest American novels, is the writer who, more than any other, painted a literary vision of the American Jazz age.  It was the 1920s, the era of decadence, mob violence, prohibition, flappers, dance crazes, high fashion, loose women,  powerful men, love and lust. Fitzgerald’s This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, and Tender Is the Night were all classics, but nothing grabbed and still holds the public’s attention more than The Great Gatsby.  The novel was so compelling that at least…

  • Play Me: “Straight” by A Place to Bury Strangers

    Bill Lipold

    After exploding onto the scene in 2007 with one of the loudest and most jarring live shows in the game, the industrial-strength, New York noise band, A Place to Bury Strangers have often struggled to match the intensity of those early days when comparisons to Jesus and Mary Chain hung around the band’s neck like the storied albatross, only to be obliterated by a ruckus so severe, the human ear buckled in ecstasy. Or, to put it more succinctly, if you love it loud, you loved A Place to Bury Strangers. Quite tellingly, neither follow up to their debut, neither 2009′s Exploding Head,…
  • Play Me: “Nights in the Dark” by California X

    Bill Lipold
    12 Nov 2014 | 4:59 am
      Don’t be alarmed by the D&D inspired album art on the embed below. California X are still the same band of rippers who make motorcycle rock for people who’d rather stomp a Steppenwolf LP than consider the possibility that their old man has good taste in music. Take their latest, “Nights in the Dark,” for example. It’s got the drive. Boy, does this thing have a motor, like J Mascis and Neil Young on the open road. And yet, the power of California X’s latest may not be the most impressive thing about this track. This is a more confident band than…

          Yes I’m Leaving Slow Release Homeless Vinyl   Slow Release, the latest long player by the Sydney band, Yes I’m Leaving, is a record you can judge by its cover, its back cover to be more precise. Let’s read over these song titles. Side one starts with “One,” and leads to “Puncher,” “Fear,” “Alchemy,” “Timer” and “Salt.” Side two reads “Care Less,” ” Manic,” “Funny,” “Secret,” and “Husk.” Those of you who were into the…
  • The Rockometer: The Best Day by Thurston Moore

          Thurston Moore The Best Day Matador Records   I’m not terribly interested in Thurston Moore’s personal life. As a Sonic Youth fan, it sucks that indie rock super couple, Moore and Kim Gordon split. But, I’m not going to get into the blame game, labeling Moore a misogynist pig for ditching Gordon for a younger model. Breakups aren’t easy. Breakups are rarely clean. And when a break up involves one of the most admired underground rock bands in history, it only serves to reason that some with no skin in the game will all of a sudden take a…

It's so fantastic that I'm contemplating leaving my ballgown at home and rockin' a Marty McFly puffy vest and hoverboard.  As in years past, PlayhouseSquare Partners is hosting a kickoff party to begin the always brief selling window.

    It's Wednesday night as I type this, I'm sitting on my favorite old couch that's fresh out of being in storage for the past year. I'm also drinking a nice red blend out of my gorgeous new wine glasses, fresh out being in my Mom's garage since my wedding shower in March. I cooked a homemade dinner for my family on my new stove, in my new house and I didn't even care that my kitchen is still in semi-disarray.YOU GUYS, I'm happy.Now, let it be known there is still a TON of work to do.... decorating, painting, etc., but man oh man we are making progress, I see a light at the end of the…

I can't wait to start this phase of our lives.I also can't wait to put our shower and wedding gifts to use.

It's gold with a clear case and it's sexy.How does one gain 15lbs over the course of a summer? No seriously, HOW?!? Over it.I'm…

    Never did I think that when my Detroit-Shoreway townhouse sold and I moved into CK's apartment in Brooklyn that I would be sitting in the same aforementioned apartment typing this blog post almost a year later.I haven't talked much about the struggle that CK and I have had finding a house on this blog because, quite frankly, it's been too painful, stressful and miserable. I didn't realize how much the idea of moving to the south suburbs would affect me. I can be honest and say I wanted nothing to do with it. I want to stay in Cleveland proper, close to the lake, close to my friends, closer to…

    Man, this summer has been fantastic. I can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend all ready. How the heck did that happen? Well, let's look at some photos from the last month and try to piece it all together.Interested in hearing the loudest screams and squeals you've ever heard? Surprise your step-daughter on her 7th birthday with a trip to Cedar Point. The kiddo had the best time ever, conquered new roller coasters like the Gemini (the real one not the photo-op one) and ate the biggest snow cone I've ever seen. Making memories at Cedar Point is one of my favorite pastimes. Marina at Westlake…

    Hey everyone, I’m on vacation this week, but I’ve still found bits of time to write, mostly during kids’ naptime on days when we weren’t chasing Mickey Mouse around some really expensive theme park. Also, I hope you enjoyed the Dimoko experience podcast with Dave Sterling and Brian Spaeth talking about a variety of topics. We are not visiting Sea World this trip and I’m sad about it… The moment of truth has arrived and in the end I just couldn’t get myself to buy tickets to go to Sea World. I absolutely love that place. I grew up about 15 minutes…

    Each November, Major League Baseball teams are faced with the difficult task of protecting certain players from the consequences of the Rule 5 draft. On Thursday, the Cleveland Indians were one of the first teams to announce their protected players. In total, the Indians are protecting five prized minor leagues by adding them to their official 40-man roster. The five players are third baseman Giovanny Urshela, reliever Shawn Armstrong, starter Cody Anderson, catcher Tony Wolters and lefty Ryan Merritt. The first four were expected additions while Merritt is a bit of a surprise. Let’s…
  • Houston Rockets leading race to get Corey Brewer

    Will Gibson
    20 Nov 2014 | 9:27 am
    The Houston Rockets may be the leader in the race to acquire Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Corey Brewer, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Brewer, a rangy, athletic wing defender, has been rumored to be the apple of the Cavaliers’ eye, but Stein says that the Rockets are ready to act now while the Cavs are debating whether to acquire a wing player or a big man. Rockets GM Daryl Morey is one of the most active and creative deal-makers in the league, and the Cavs’ hesitation may be enough for him to swoop in and snag Brewer, a 6-foot-9 University of Florida product. Things…
