    A weather system is pulling out of the area, and it has been the catalyst for clouds and rain showers, especially south into the overnight hours. Gradually, rain will taper off and clouds will break for some clearing. Brisk winds will keep it chilly going into the morning. With a stiff, north-northeast wind off the lake Sunday, expect another unseasonably chilly day. Sunshine will fade and clouds will once again assemble for the evening, bringing with them the chance for lake rain showers. A few of the rain showers may mix with some wet flakes in the morning. Fortunately, accumulation does…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The national “Nerd Prom” is drawing a wide mix of Hollywood and Washington power players for the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. Tea Leoni, who plays the nation’s chief diplomat on TV’s “Madam Secretary,” arrived arm in arm Saturday with the first female secretary of state, Madeleine Albright. Their entourage includes CBS’ Bob Schieffer and Leoni’s TV husband, Tim Daly. The correspondents’ dinner has grown into a massive undertaking since its 1914 roots.

    SANTA ANA –  A retired police officer from Santa Ana, California was just reunited with a man who he rescued as a baby 25 years ago, according to KTLA. Michael Buelna was responding to a call in 1989 when he found a baby that was left behind a dumpster in a nearby alley. Buelna grabbed the baby and took him to a paramedic. The baby, named ‘baby Adam’ at the time is now 25-year-old Robin Barton. Barton and his adoptive parents met with Buelna this last week.

    On April 16th Cold Specks opened for Sufjan Stevens in the beautiful Cleveland Masonic Temple. It was a sold out show and fans were already in their seats anxious to hear Cold Specks. Her name is Ladan Hussein and she is a Somali-Canadian singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada who performs under the stage name Cold Specks. Her debut single "Holland" was released on October 17, 2011. She can also be heard on Moby's 2013 album, Innocents. When I walked in the door on Thursday Cold Specks had just appeared on stage. I was instantly intrigued by her sound. Her voice is beautiful and filled the…

    You don't know where life will take you. Some people plan their lives, have goals and expectations. I have to admit that I've never been a planner. Life has taken me where it has accidentally - randomly rather than by expectation or desire. I'll never regret flying by the seat of my pants. Exactly 50 years ago this month I walked up a busy Euclid Avenue to E. 18th Street and north to Superior Ave. to the offices of the then powerful Cleveland Plain Dealer. A newcomer to Cleveland - first time. I had come in from New York City by train. I was here for a job interview. It brought me eventually…

    Wow, what a surprise! Cuyahoga County seems to be running out of money. Can't borrow, County Executive Amond Budish tells the Plain Dealer. Can't borrow for MetroHealth Medical Center but can for a hotel that will be a big money loser. Great Democratic politics. And the PD didn't know about this? What another surprise. Especially since the PD applauds whenever Cleveland or Cuyahoga County spends like a drunken sailor. Or gives subsidies or forgives or shifts property taxes. Give it away! Or wants to build what it really can't afford. The Hyatt Hotel deal owned and paid for by taxpayers, will…

    It's currently the middle of the 39th Cleveland International Film Festival. I've seen a few great films over the past couple of days. An unexpected favorite was " A Dangerous Game" The film is about Donald Trump fighting to build luxury golf courses on rare sand dunes in Scotland. Residents battle with Trump for years. It's an intense battle and the film clearly shows reasons why the courses should not be built in this area of the country. Anthony Baxter is the filmmaker and this is his second film about Donald Trump. The first is titled "You've Been Trumped". It's very interesting to watch…

    25 Apr 2015 | 4:12 pm
    Alfredo Simon became the first Tigers pitcher to win his first four starts in a season since Frank Tanana in 1988, delivering 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball to help the Tigers end a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Indians on Saturday afternoon at Comerica Park.

    All-Star Michael Brantley churned out four hits in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Tigers, providing more hope that the left fielder is getting over the lower-back issue that sidelined him for six of the first eight games this season.

    Three subpar innings from TJ House, who got a spot start in place of an ill Trevor Bauer, combined with the offense's latest shift from feast to famine, paved the way for a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Detroit at Comerica Park.

A similar train in the U.S. would get you from Cleveland to Chicago in about an hour. That would mean Cleveland to Akron in something like 5 minutes, Cleveland to Columbus in about 20, and Cleveland to Cincinnati in about 35 in case anyone ever wanted to go to the Deep South.

  • Looking at Lynchburg on a Lazy Sunday

    12 Apr 2015 | 6:10 am
    Regrettably, I did not have time to work up a proper Lazy Sunday for you all this week. I was busy building my backyard shrine to Jerry Sands. We have a popular pre-season playoff pick struggling despite a strong showing by their highly-regarded rotation (with one exception). The defense has been scuffling, and the lineup just isn’t producing, and it’s tough to pinpoint exactly why. The bullpen has been touched up a little, and it’s unclear who can be the 8th inning bridge to the young, talented closer. But enough about the 1-4 Washington Nationals, you’re here to read about the 2-3…

Michael Bourn will dig in the box and The Klubot will toe the rubber Monday night in Texas, and the most anticipated Indians season since…well, since last season…will begin in earnest. Expectations for this year’s Indians club are sky-high, with a series of national outlets and writers picking the Indians to dethrone the Tigers atop the AL Central, and some picking them to go even further than that.

    It’s everyone’s favorite time of year again (well, my favorite time of year at least), as I was fortunate enough to have my annual March talk with Indians team President Mark Shapiro earlier this week. Mark and I usually talk at the team’s spring training facility in Goodyear, but owing to some extenuating circumstances, I was unable to make my traditional pilgrimage to Arizona this winter. Still, he was gracious enough to take an hour out of his very busy spring schedule to talk with me over the phone, and that’s the next best thing. If you missed the previous installments of…

    Thu 4/30 @ 8:30PM New Orleans quintet the Dirty River Bourbon Show make music that’s as frolicsome as their name. No genre of music is off limits to their irreverent treatment that is still somehow respectful to the blues, ballads and New Orleans brass sounds they masticate in their musical maws. The band reveals its New Orleans roots with its heavy emphasis on brass and percussion, to which it adds a cacophony of other sounds including accordion and guitar, and leavens with vocal harmonies. Humor and oddball theatrics also play a large role in their live performances, which is where they…

They are NOT a Rolling Stones tribute band, but rather a country/folk band rooted in old-time rural mountain traditions that creates its own unpretentious version of Americana. The group’s four members — lead singer/guitarist/banjo player Trent Wagler, standup bass player Brian Dickel, fiddler Eric Brubaker and mandolin player Jay Lapp — met in college in the mid ’00s and worked on projects together for a few years before dropping music for a few years to live…

This much should not come as a surprise. The name of the band is Sonic Jesus, a band named Sonic Jesus is not going to play wordy thesaurus pop with all sorts of cutesy strings and things.

These cover bands were more fun than they had any right being. Maybe it was the beer — The sun and the unseasonably warm temps in Cleveland made for great day drinking.

    Indie Rock is the white man’s music. This fact is well established. All one needs to do to prove this point is to conduct a quick thought experiment. I say indie rock and you note the first five bands or artists that come to mind. White dudes with guitars, right? Or, one could read recent articles at Pitchfork, The New Republic and Slate. I’ll save you the clicks. Basically, all three articles get deep into semantics, like the difference between labeling evil-doers terrorists and people who commit acts of terror, but in terms of music. You see, people like Kanye and FKA Twigs…

    LeBron James never ceases to entertain or amaze. If you don’t believe me, just consider what he does after shoot-a rounds and practices. Take this shot for example. We don’t know how many attempts LeBron took before hitting this one, but suffice to say most of us would blow our arms out before successfully converting a full-court shot like this. The post Video: LeBron James hits full-court shot after practice appeared first on Waiting For Next Year.

    Remember the young, hospitalized child who was decimated by Cardale Jones in NCAA 15? Well, good news is that he is feeling better and appears that he could be in line for a rematch. When notified of this request, Jones, the National Championship-winning quarterback of the Ohio State Buckeyes, appeared to be willing to play, but asked that the child pick another game. No amount of preparation can close a 60-poiint gap. Alas, the child picked NHL 15 to which Jones said… @bearfoley NHL 15😰 bro, I'm black, I don't play NHL 😂 — Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) April 24, 2015…

    Well, I guess you’d have to be pretty gullible to think a Major League baseball team could hit a collective .186 with runners in scoring position for almost three whole weeks and not be just joshin’ ya. Give the Indians credit for sticking with that extended April Fools Day charade for as long as they did, especially convincing a new guy like Brandon Moss to play along so believably! In any case, that’s all over now, as tonight’s 13-1 beatdown of the Tigers (in Detroit, no less!) clearly pulled the curtain on the ruse and revealed the Cleveland Indians to be the pennant-bound…

    The third episode of the playoffs saw me once again alongside John Anderson of WKYC to talk about the Cavaliers’ victory over the Celtics. At this point, I’ve stopped giving credit to the Cavaliers instead taking it for myself as a member of this new web show for WKYC. I’m half kidding of course. Anyway, in case you missed it live at 10 a.m., here it is. We talked about Tristan Thompson’s nice game, Kevin Love’s dagger, LeBron’s steady leadership and Boston’s physical style.

    Ten years into its existence, not everybody seems to be a huge fan of YouTube. Some say it’s become an unintended digital exhibit on the de-evolution of mankind — a sprawling garbage dump at the event horizon of a cultural black hole, squandering its hi-tech sophistication for the proliferation of dancing cats and dick punches. To this I say bollocks! If not for YouTube, I might never again have seen the smiling mug of my childhood hero, Indians catcher Andy Allanson. Nor could I have witnessed Hot Rod Williams help end the career of Larry Bird! Or watch a giant disembodied dog head…
