    CLEVELAND- An extremely harsh winter is being blamed for a growing pothole plague in Northeast Ohio, and not just on the side streets. Potholes on the interstates can be far more dangerous and difficult to dodge for a number of reasons.  Often times the ice, snow or water run-off can disguise the chuckhole until it’s too late and/or the driver can’t maneuver around it because of heavy traffic.  Speed is also a factor because hitting a pothole at 50 MPH or greater can will significantly more damage to the vehicle.

    Gary Waters and his Cleveland State Vikings have been the best kept secret in Cleveland area sports for the last decade. Part of the reason that they have been relegated to the back pages of the sports pages in the town is the numerous missed opportunities they have had over the years. Every time they seemed to host a meaningful game and drawn a healthy crowd they have seemed to fall on their face. They have a chance to atone for all those missteps tomorrow night as they host Valparaiso Crusaders in what will be, in essence, the regular season Horizon League Championship game played on their…

As a former Ohio Clintonista, it's not easy seeing how your political work over those decades contributed to the problem.

    A recall effort to knock Mayor Frank Jackson out of office could have some significant benefits for Cleveland. Even if it fails. I question whether the forces leading this effort have the heft to obtain enough signatures to place a recall vote on the ballot. Some 12,000 plus. They are not high profile politicians. Leading the charge are Norm Edwards, who sends out messages on minority hiring via the Black Contractors Group, and a former mayoral opponent of Jackson, Atty. Michael Nelson. They'll need to collect some 12,000 signatures. No easy matter. However, there is sour discontent about.

Unfortunately, this year’s offering, DOGFIGHT, probably won’t get such attention.  It’s not that the production is bad, but it is cursed with a weak script, with lines that seem forced and unnatural and an inconsistent, often repetitive musical score which includes five reprises.

Their previous two efforts, 2010′s Songs for Singles EP and 2012′s Harmonicraft, downplayed their background in the sludge and doom metal scenes, and instead focused on quick-hitting (and oh so burly) pop-metal. In one particularly memorable soundbite from this era, conservative commentator, and closet rocker, Mike Huckabee, labeled Torche the heavy metal Foo…

    People tend to get down in the dumps during Cleveland winters, and while I can wholeheartedly get on the "it's-not-as-fun-as-summer" train, winter doesn't mean we need to sit at home wrapped in blankets waiting for the first sign of spring.Take this past weekend for example. My sissy was visiting from NYC, my cousin Jenna was visiting from Columbus and we didn't let the cold weather slow us down as we hopped from Cleveland hotspot to Cleveland hotspot.First stop Friday: MIX at CMA: Soul. This Cleveland Museum of Art monthly event is always a winner in my book, and this month's Soul theme…

    [The ticket giveaway is now closed, congrats to @HeyEscapist whose comment was chosen via random.org]It's January in Cleveland which means it's almost time for the 39th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF). Can you believe it?! Yippee! This year's CIFF, which runs March 18-29, will again make its home at Tower City Cinemas with over 350+ films being shown on premises. Neighborhood theaters/venues will also be getting some love with film events at Beachland Ballroom, Cedar Lee Theatre, Chagrin Cinemas and the Akron Art Museum.One thing I've always respected about CIFF is that…

    Wait, where am I? What month is this? What year is this?Have I really gone a solid month without posting? This surely is a first. Thankfully, I'm still a sharing fool on my @clevelandsaplum Twitter and Instagram. Other social media platforms notwithstanding, I missed the original plum channel turning seven last week - SEVEN. This little piece of the internet is officially as old as my step-daughter. My how different my life was back then.So, instead of trying to recap a month of memories via photo montage recap post, just head over to my Instagram to catch up. I promise you I've had…

    By now you all know of my genuine love for Jump Back Ball, PlayhouseSquare's always anticipated annual event and this year's party promises to be the best yet.The 24th annual Jump Back Ball is taking place Saturday, February 28, 2015 and I can't wait to Jump Back to the Future!! Can we please talk for a hot second about how fun this year's theme is? 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.

  • Play Ball: Indians spring season begins with McAllister audition

    Finally, the long winter season without baseball games has ended as the Cleveland Indians opened the Cactus League season with a game against their spring baseball partner Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday afternoon. Given that the Indians brought back nearly everyone and did not make any big moves in the offseason (with apologies to Brandon Moss), one of the few and biggest spring training battles is anticipated to be the battle for the fifth position in the starting rotation. Zach McAllister1 was given the first chance to impress with the first start of the 2015 season. In addition, with the…
  • “I guarantee every team in the league would take his defense and be thrilled.”

    The way defensive metrics rate Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley has officially perplexed Terry Francona. In an interview conducted a few days back in Goodyear, Arizona, Francona admitted that, while he has been in the game for quite some time, he has no idea why advanced analytics rate the MVP candidate so poorly. “I have no idea. For the life of me, I can’t understand it,” he said. “That’s something that perplexes me to no end. He’s one of the best left fielders in the game. I don’t get it. I don’t know if I ever will.”…
  • Justin Gilbert working out with Joe Haden

    Through all of the distractions that the Cleveland Browns had to endure with regard to quarterback Johnny Manziel, it was fellow first-rounder Justin Gilbert who drew the ire of his veteran teammates. One of the veterans who spoke about Gilbert was fellow cornerback and first-round draft pick Joe Haden, a player who also came in to the league with a boat load of expectations, a passion for flashin’, and subsequently missed time due to poor decisions. Fast forward to this offseason and we’ve seen encouraging words from head coach Mike Pettine, but in a world where actions speak…
  • Hope for Josh McCown starts in the Browns offensive line

    3 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
    One thing I think pretty much everyone agrees on with regard to NFL quarterbacks is they take too much of the blame and credit. This point was illustrated in the Super Bowl this season where the Tom Brady narrative was forever cemented while he was helmet-less on the sidelines waiting to watch his defense intercept Russell Wilson’s attempted slant at the goal line with the game on the line. Of course, those are the Pats, Seahawks and the Super Bowl. We mortals are down here splitting hairs over Brian Hoyer and Josh McCown, but I digress. The point is that one of the main reasons Browns…
