    NORTH RIDGEVILLE–A Lakewood mother is being remembered, as police investigate her death. People in the community of North Ridgeville gathered to remember Rachele Tyburski Sunday night. The body of Tyburski, 26, was found in a field off of Victory Lane in the city on March 15th. Police continue to obtain details surrounding her death, but regardless, the tragedy has saddened many in the area. A group gathered at South Central Park to light candles, pray, and sing in Tyburski’s name. Tyburski leaves behind a son, just 4-years old. “We just kept saying we have got to do…

    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…

    Showers are spreading in a sporadic fashion tonight and will exiting before rush hour early Monday morning. Monday will start the week off peacefully with highs continuing with a slow upward trend. The air lagging behind this ‘Clipper’ system is not as intensely cold as Saturday thankfully.  On a positive note, a batch of more seasonable temps will push highs into the upper 50s and lower-middle 60s starting midweek. Easter weekend still looks quiet yet cool with highs sticking in the 40s. Here’s our Fox 8 Forecast.

    (CNN) — You’ll see some familiar faces in the Final Four. Duke beat Gonzaga 66-52 on Sunday, giving Blue Devils’ coach Mike Krzyzewski his 12th trip to the semifinals of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Justise Winslow and Matt Jones each scored 16 to help Duke win the South Region. Gonzaga, led by 16 points from Kyle Wiltjer, was hoping to earn its first trip to the Final Four. Here’s how the Final Four, to be played in Indianapolis, has shaped up: Next Saturday, Duke will face Michigan State in the first semifinal. In the next game, top seed Kentucky will…

    CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James scored 20 points, Kyrie Irving added 17 and the Cleveland Cavaliers hung on for an 87-86 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. The Cavaliers earned their 16th straight home win despite being held scoreless in the final 4:04. Trailing by a point, the 76ers called timeout with 8.5 seconds left. Nerlens Noel missed a shot in the lane and Tristan Thompson was fouled while grabbing the rebound. Cleveland called timeout to inbound the ball at midcourt. The pass was tipped away as time ran out.

House’s day after he was told he earned a spot in Cleveland’s rotation as the White Sox beat the Indians 4-1 on Sunday. Flowers doubled to score Gordon Beckham and he later scored along with J.B. Schuck on a long double by Kottaras to give Chicago a 3-1 lead. The Indians scored an unearned run off White Sox starter Scott Carroll in the first inning. Jason Kipnis walked and Michael Brantley, returning after he sat out with a sore back, singled.

    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…

But apparently P.G.

    Have Cleveland's real leaders run a poll on Mayor Frank Jackson popularity (or unpopularity) or are they just naturally nervous these days. In the Sunday Plain Dealer there was the most unusual op-ed page piece I can remember in 50 years working or watching the city's newspaper on standing. "Leadership of Jackson shows recall efforts are wrong," said the headline. It had 45 authors. Or signers. It was an unpaid ad. By those who could afford to pay for their propaganda. Ten of the 45 (as of 2013) are present members of the Greater Cleveland Partnership. No surprise there. The names of many are…

Let me tell you where I was when the Bill Clinton US Senate impeachment conviction vote happened. I was a lucky Ohio Clintonista, so by February, 1999 I was working for one of those USAID funded democracy programs in Kiev, Ukraine, training political parties, election observers, and civic organizations the ins and outs of democracy, while, back home in my democracy, my president was getting his comeuppance for a blow job from…

  • The Cleveland Browns are impervious to rebranding

    Cleveland Frowns
    5 Mar 2015 | 6:30 am
    Last week the Browns made national headlines and put the local news cycle on freeze with a heavily promoted “rebranding” that turned out not to be a rebranding at all. For all the many ways this offseason has somehow again plunged the franchise to new depths of league-laughingstock status, the “rebranding” episode was actually glorious, and a much-needed reminder of how great it can be to be a Browns fan. To review, the organization undertook what it announced as a two-year design process that resulted mainly in turning its primary logo from an orange football helmet to a slightly…

    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…

So there’s no reason, other than unfamiliarity, why many Clevelanders wouldn’t love the Suffers out of Houston.

It may not be the jam to unite the rockers and the hip-hop heads, but it nonetheless showcases why the prolific, Lamont “Bim” Thomas is a real force in the…

    Who says you can't get new windows in winter?I didn't, and neither did Window Nation.As CK and I continue to tackle getting our new home organized, we have a pet renovation project in the works that recently had its first item checked off the (very long) task list: new windows courtesy of Window Nation!So, there's this "carriage house" on our property. But I'm not sure who are we kidding calling it a "carriage house" though, it's really a lofted garage, but because it's over 105-years-old it once housed carriages/horses. There are even trapdoors for hay distribution and the floor is old…

    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…

    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…

  • Does Anyone Want to Win? 76ers vs Cavs: Behind the Box Score

    Kyle Welch
    29 Mar 2015 | 6:26 pm
    Philadelphia 76ers (18-56) 86 Cleveland Cavaliers (48-27) 87 Box Score On Saturday night, Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena hosted a nail-biter of a game for the ages when Kentucky survived Notre Dame 68-66 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It was one hell of a game, and though it may have been one of the more well-played games in the tournament, it was still characterized by a few of the things that make college basketball a less aesthetically pleasing game than its professional counterpart: underproficient offense, low scoring, and sluggish play. Quicken Loans Arena must…
  • Anthony Swarzak makes Cleveland Indians roster; Josh Tomlin sent down

    Former Minnesota Twins pitcher Anthony Swarzak made the Cleveland Indians roster out of spring training, the team announced on Sunday morning. Starter Josh Tomlin was sent down to Triple-A Columbus. TJ House and Zach McAllister won out the final two rotation spots. Swarzak, 29, has spent his entire baseball career with the Minnesota Twins. A second-round pick in 2004, he was once a hot-shot starting pitching prospect — ranking No. 100 in Baseball Propsectus’ league-wide prospect rankings prior to 2006 — but flamed out in the past few seasons. He was a reliever and…

  • On the 25th anniversary of Michael Jordan dropping 69 on the Cavs

    What if I told you that Mark Price and Craig Ehlo would combine for 57 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists against Michael Jordan and the vaunted Chicago Bulls? And that John “Hot Rod” Williams, coming off of the bench, would produce a fantasy owner’s dream—23 points, 10 rebounds, five steals and two blocks. How about Scottie Pippen, BJ Armstrong and John Paxson combining to go 6-for-21? What if I also told you that the Cleveland Cavaliers would lose? On March 28, 1990, a game was housed in Richfield Coliseum between the two teams, and only two members of the Bulls would…
  • The struggle to keep that edge: Cavs vs. Nets Behind the Box Score

    The NBA regular season is 82 games long. It’s full of ebbs and flows, and even good teams drop games to bad teams. The Cavaliers have defeated the Nets three times this season (including two blowouts), but they were unable to complete the sweep as the Nets played like the team that desperately needed this one to keep their playoff chances alive. The Nets pulled away from the Cavaliers late and won 106-98 after a back and forth game where the Cavaliers refused to consistently defend or put their foot on the gas pedal offensively. Cleveland Cavaliers 98 Brooklyn Nets 106 Box Score…
