Medina schools considering levy after withdrawing one in May
Other noon headlines: GOP chairman meeting with black leaders in Cleveland; Captain America wraps shooting; Mayor Jackson says no 'systemic failure' in Nov. shooting


 
  • GOP chairman meeting with black leaders in Cleveland
  • Captain America wraps shooting
  • Mayor Jackson says no 'systemic failure' in Nov. shooting
  • Medina schools considering levy
    The Medina Board of Education will consider Monday whether to place a levy on this fall's ballot. 

    The move comes just weeks after the district pulled a levy from the May ballot amidst controversy over then-Superintendent Randy Stepp's contract. 

    That agreement included salary and education expenses that drew fire from teachers and parents. 

    Stepp agreed to return a signing bonus, reimburse the district for his education, and eventually sued for breach of contract. The board had pulled the May levy saying the controversy poisoned the atmosphere to the point that it should be withdrawn.
    A national Republican Party leader is meeting with black community leaders in Cleveland tonight as part of an effort to expand the party with groups that have been voting Democrat.

    GOP chairman meeting with black leaders in Cleveland
    GOP National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus plans to have a "listening session" with community leaders tonight at St. John AME Church. 

    He says he wants to better engage minority communities, which generally voted heavily for Democratic President Barack Obama last year. Obama won Ohio in 2008 and 2012.

    Former state school board member and Ohio State University quarterback Stanley Jackson is among black leaders taking part in the session, and the GOP says it’s planning similar meetings around the country.

    Captain America wraps shooting
    The gridlock in Cleveland during a Hollywood film shoot could be wrapping up.

    Officials say today marks the final day of a two-week shutdown of the West Shoreway, a key commuter route into downtown Cleveland.

    The resulting traffic jams combined with construction led to blocked intersections, delays and angry motorists. The city responded by posting police officers to direct traffic at numerous intersections at rush hour.

    The closed highway is scheduled to reopen Saturday.

    City officials hope the gridlock pays off in polishing Cleveland's movie-friendly image.

    The city will play a role in the film "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.

    Mayor Jackson says no 'systemic failure' in Nov. shooting
    Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson today provided an update into the investigation of a deadly police shooting last November.
    Jackson says some officers did not follow orders during the nearly half-hour pursuit that ended with the shooting deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams in East Cleveland.

    And he disagrees with Attorney General Mike DeWine that a – quote – “systemic failure” led to the shooting.
    “There was a failure. It was not systemic. It was a failure on the part of some supervisors and some patrol officers to do what they knew they should have done, and what they were trained to do."
    The investigation into the deadly chase has resulted in a firing, demotions and suspensions among the more than one-hundred officers involved.
