    VERMILION, Ohio-  A Lorain County Grand Jury has returned indictments against a Vermilion woman, charging her with the murder of her husband five years ago. It was on November 18, 2009, that Vermilion police were called to the North Ridge Road home of Jeremy and Julene Simko, owners of the Simko Tree Service. Julene Simko called 911 and claimed that someone broke into the home that morning and shot her husband in a second-floor bedroom. The indictment of Simko on charges of aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault and tampering with evidence is the culmination of a five-year…

    CLEVELAND – Word is spreading across the north coast; IKEA is taking another look at Northeast Ohio. According to Cleveland.com, the Plain Dealer Publishing Company has “signed a contract to sell 16 acres in the suburb of Brooklyn to IKEA.” The land under contract reportedly sits north of the Plain Dealer’s Tiedeman Road plant on I-480. No one from the newspaper returned Fox8’s call for comment, although Brooklyn’s Director of Development did confirm IKEA had been investigating. According to an IKEA spokesperson that’s all the Swedish company had been doing.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s governor has signed a bill to require a police officer’s presence for tickets to be issued from traffic cameras. The legislation would regulate the statewide use of the devices, though opponents say it’s tantamount to a ban. Gov. John Kasich’s signature came Friday, a day after a divided Ohio Supreme Court again upheld use of traffic camera enforcement by the state’s municipalities, reversing a lower court after a year of legal setbacks for camera advocates. Traffic cameras surged in use but have faced increasing pushback,…

    CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Indians are still two months away from spring training, but crews continue their work at Progressive Field on a massive construction project.  On Friday, FOX 8 got a sneak peek on the renovations that continue at the 20-year-old facility. The bullpen walls are now in place and the concrete has been poured in the layered bullpen area which will include three rows of unique seats in front of the field and bullpens. “Our fans are excited about being closer to the action,” said Joel Hammond Indians Communications Coordinator.  “You are going to see those relievers…

    19 Dec 2014 | 5:07 pm
    Brooklyn-based experimental electronic artist goste released earlier this month his third EP titled Eugene. goste, whose real name is Owen Ross, is a producer, instrumentalist, and composer. While goste is a solo project, the EP also features Chris Holdridge on drums and Bryan Percivall on bass, with Megan Lui and Tamsin Wilsen providing background vocals. The almost hypnotizing, slow beat of the melody in opening track “Volcanoes (Slow Fade)” draws the listener in and manages to grab his or her interest despite the monotonous and sometimes muddled vocals. “Loadedlikeapistol” features…
  • Music Review: Various Artists – ‘Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash’s ‘Bitter Tears’ Revisited’

    Greg Barbrick
    19 Dec 2014 | 3:32 pm
    Johnny Cash’s 1964 album Bitter Tears has been unjustly overlooked for far too long. While it was not Cash’s first “concept” album, it is likely the very first country protest album. All of the songs on Bitter Tears dealt with the plight of Native Americans, which was a far cry from what was going on in mainstream country and western media at the time. In 1962 Western films were still making big money, and just about every one of them depicted crazed Indians attacking innocent, God-fearing settlers. Cash had not yet placed his infamous ad in which he flips off his bosses, but the…

    “Enlightened Indigo Child,” by Idelle and Diandra Brand Parenting isn’t easy, even if you have a “low-maintenance,” easily socialized child, like I did. But what if your child is hypersensitive to noise, has insomnia and night terrors, is easily distracted, and gets sick a lot? What if your child “feels” other people’s symptoms, and seems to know what’s going to happen before others do? What if others perceive your child as “different” because he or she has extraordinary gifts in music, art, or academics, but may have…
  • Book Review: ‘Forget You Ever Knew Me,’ A Thriller by Judy Dailey

    Jack Goodstein
    19 Dec 2014 | 5:31 am
    Perhaps the most interesting thing about Judy Dailey’s Forget You Ever Knew Me, is the willingness of the author to use her compelling thriller to embark on a critique of larger social issues, both historical and current. This is not the stuff of conventional genre fiction; this is the stuff of the best of genre fiction, genre fiction reaching beyond its grasp. Set primarily in the small Indiana town of Zillah, the novel traces both events in 1952 when doctors Maggie and Bennett Kendall and their child come to town to take over his deceased father’s medical practice, and the effects of…

The four-member Canadian indie rock and R&B band, comprised of Chantel Rivard (vocals), Nick Cifaldi (guitar), Dave Ball (bass), and Zack Stewart (drums), build on the strength of Rivard’s smoky vocals and Cifaldi’s guitar skills to create infectious and oftentimes groovy songs. The EP begins with “Heaven Can Wait”, immediately introducing listeners to Rivard’s passionate vocals. The track, like most of its successors, evokes the imagery of a smoky bar, a femme fatale dressed…

    Yesterday, Browns defensive back and top special-teamer Johnson Bademosi published a statement at SI.com on his decision to wear a t-shirt marked with “I can’t breathe,” in protest of what he calls “police killings as a symptom of the systematic and historical devaluing of black lives.” It’s as much as Browns fans have had to be proud of in at least two decades. Here’s an excerpt (links added for reference): “We walk a tightrope as NFL athletes. We all have lives and opinions outside of sports, yet the NFL today is designed to suppress and…

  • Gathering Moss on a Lazy Sunday

    14 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    So…anything much going on this week? The Indians fired the first salvo during baseball’s Winter Meetings a few days ago, consummating the much-rumored Brandon Moss for Joey Wendle swap on Monday. The trade was the worst-kept secret in baseball, and occurred as part of a flurry of moves from A’s GM Billy Bean that completely revamped his roster. Following the Moss trade, the Dodgers’ Andrew Friedman put his stamp on the very expensive and defensively inept roster he inherited, and now has a very expensive and defensively proficient roster to take into the 2015 season. The White Sox got…

    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…

The Cavs haven’t been the unstoppable juggernaut that many expected them to be (at least, not yet). The Browns are…well, the Browns. Thursday’s win was great, but I’m still not quite convinced they’ve broken through to become Super Bowl contenders. Regardless, I have good news. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

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. The Royals are winning with defense, speed, timely hitting, a lights out bullpen and two really…

  • Play Me: “Waste the Alphabet” by Dick Diver

    Bill Lipold
    16 Dec 2014 | 11:54 am
    The first words I associate with Melbourne indie rock act, Dick Diver, tend to be words like casual, comforting and familiar, as if the musicians in the band were friends first and musicians later, and the songs were merely extensions of the bond they already shared. With “Waste the Alphabet,” the first track released from the band’s forthcoming release, Melbourne, Florida (3.6 on Trouble in Mind), they did more than hang out in that old sheep shearing shed and share stories and tip back bottles (For real, the album was recorded in an old shed), they found their voice.

    10 Dec 2014 | 2:16 pm
    As much as I liked borrowing conservative pundit, Mike Huckabee’s description of Florida heavies, Torche, as the heavy metal Foo Fighters, the name does come with unnecessary weight. How many Foo Fighters songs do you need? Look, Dave Grohl is a great guy, the nicest of nice guys in the music biz, but I’m more than satisfied with hearing Foo Fighters greatest hits every couple months or so. Any new Foo Fighters song sounds like some other Foo Fighters hit. Similarly, on Torche’s recent albums, one got the feeling they’ve perfected the three-minute, heavy metal hit. The…

    The Mass band, Krill, have a lot going for them. They have a steadily increasing profile on the up-and-coming rock label, Exploding in Sound records. They have a name and sound that reflects the best of ’90s guitar rock. And yet, in true ’90s, throwback fashion, they can’t find satisfaction in any of it. “Torturer,” taken from their upcoming album, A Distant Fist Unclenching (2.17 on Exploding In Sound / Double Double Whammy) examines the pain of modern romance through intelligent (i.e., dudes can play their instruments) and still accessible bombast.

Then there are days like today, where it seems every ace rock band in the nation is pushing a new track. The Black Angels have this new one, “Molly Moves My Generation,” from soon-to-be-released 10″ split single on Fuzz Club and its easily the deepest, darkest track this Austin psych bunch have put out in years. And just when you think these vets are content to ride out on a drone, they go full thrash mode. More of this, please.

Well, if “Bury Your Friends,” didn’t do it for you, then, “Surface Envy,” the ladies latest preview track from No Cities to Love (1.20 on Sub Pop) ought to do it. Go through the band’s revered discography and ask yourself when was the last time they sounded so soulful, so rambunctious and noisy, so right now? I’m not sure I would have ever described Sleater-Kinney as soulful, but from the vocals to the relentless beat, this one aims to wreck the room. And the guitars! The way Carrie Brownstein and…

They range from building bridges and dams and enlarging a pond without permits to tearing down a barn without notice of…
