In The Region:
  • Questions, protests over police shooting of unarmed couple
  • New head for rock hall named
  • State high court may find state in comtempt
  • Jeep booms, though manufacturing slows
  • Press conference on police shooting
    Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and the city’s top safety officials are holding a press conference to address questions about why police shot and killed two people Thursday night after a high-speed chase.  More than two-dozen officers from four departments converged in East Cleveland and fired nearly 140 shots, killing Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell.

    Both of them were unarmed.

    Also today, investigators are interviewing 13 Cleveland officers, who have been on leave since the shooting.  And relatives of Ms. Williams want an apology from Jeffery Follmer, president of the Cleveland police union, who said Russell rammed a police cruiser and officers did what they were trained to do.

    The chase began about 10:30 Thursday night in downtown Cleveland.  Follmer said Saturday that two officers heard a gunshot and thought it came from Russell’s car, which then sped away.  The medical examiner says he took 20 rounds from Russell’s body and 16 from Williams.

    A community protest is planned at the site of the shooting at 4 this afternoon.

    New head for rock hall named
    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s vice president is moving up to become the CEO of the museum on New Year’s Day.

    Greg Harris has been with the museum for nearly five years, after time as a curator of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Coopersstown.  Back in the ‘80s, he co-founded the Philadelphia Record Exchange, which sold rare, used and independent records. He also was a national tour road manager and played guitar in garage bands.

    Harris is replacing Terry Stewart , who has headed the rock hall since 1999 and is retiring. The downtown Cleveland museum opened in 1995.

    State high court may find state in comtempt
    The state Supreme Court will press the Ohio Department of Natural Resources tomorrow on why it should not be held in contempt of court after a year’s delay in compensating landowners for “taking” their property.

    The court had unanimously ordered ODNR to compensate landowners west of Grand Lake St. Mary’s for overflows from the lake into Beaver Creek. The justices said the state was liable for damage from the intermittent but inevitable flooding.

    ODNR has said it has tried “diligently to meet the requirements” of the Supreme Court order and the law in negotiations with property owners.

    Jeep booms, though manufacturing slows
    American manufacturing is slowing down, but one of its biggest comeback stories in Ohio continues to surge.  Chrysler reported today its best November sales in five years, with the Jeep Wrangler setting a monthly sales record.  The Wrangler is assembled in Toledo.

    Meanwhile, the AP is reporting that the impact of Superstorm Sandy and worries about the fiscal cliff reduce factory orders and manufacturing jobs in November.
