  • Strongsville students join protest
  • Councilman Reed pleads not guilty to his third DUI charge
  • Judge orders another unusual 'sign' sentence
  • Strongsville students join protest
    Some students are showing their displeasure with a strike that's keeping close to 400 of their teachers out of the classrooms in Strongsville. Around two dozen students demonstrated outside the board of education office last night. Some said they were protesting the high school principal’s warnings not to talk about the strike on social media sites. Others said they didn't feel safe with replacement teachers. The strike over salary and working conditions enters its third day today. Substitutes are conducting classes in the district of about 6,300 students. No new talks have been scheduled.

    Councilman Reed pleads not guilty to his third DUI charge
    Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed has pleaded not guilty to his third drunken driving charge in eight years. Reed was arraigned in traffic court today following his arrest early yesterday morning after a traffic stop. Through his attorney, Councilman Reed told the traffic court judge he wants a jury trial. And he intends to challenge the suspension of his driver’s license. 

    Judge orders another unusual 'sign' sentence
    The same Cleveland judge who made a woman wear an "idiot" sign in public for driving around a school bus is calling for the public shaming of a man convicted of threatening police officers. In addition to sentencing 58-year-old Richard Dameron to 90 days in jail for threatening officers in 911 calls, Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to stand in front of a district police station with a sign. The judge says in June he'll have to stand for three hours a day for a week with a sign apologizing to officers.  The sign will read, "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again." Judge Carr says that sometimes she has to get creative to get through to people.
