Cleveland councilman calls for East Side emergency care
Other headlines: Early Christmas in Port Clinton cancer patient dies; Lakemore doughboy statue restored

  • Cleveland councilman calls for East Side emergency care
    A Cleveland councilman is using the November 3rd shooting of a veteran firefighter to highlight the lack of emergency care on the city’s near East Side.

    The Plain Dealer reports that councilman Zack Reed last night railed against the Cleveland Clinic for closing its Huron Hospital near the neighborhood where Lt. William Walker was shot in his driveway.

    Reed says first responders could have reached Huron’s emergency room in six minutes instead of the 26 minutes it took them to reach the next nearest hospital 13 miles away.

    The Cleveland Clinic closed Huron Hospital in 2011 after it had lost $77 million over a decade.  A replacement facility focuses on primary care in East Cleveland.

    Early Christmas in Port Clinton cancer patient dies
    An Ohio boy with brain cancer has died two weeks after he came home for an early Christmas given to him by residents who put up decorations and sang carols.

    A family friend in Port Clinton says 13-year-old Devin Kohlman died Monday afternoon.

    Doctors had told Devin that he didn't have long to live, so the city along Lake Erie spent the last few weeks trying to fulfill his wish of being home for his favorite holiday.

    The city put up a Christmas tree within view of the family's apartment and tons of shaved ice shaped drifting snow outside his window. Santa even showed up on a motorcycle.

    Family and friends gathered for a vigil Monday night after his death while an early-season snow fell over the city.

    Lakemore doughboy statue restored
    A damaged and discarded statue of a World War I soldier is again standing guard over a memorial park in a northeast Ohio village — thanks to the efforts of some local veterans.

    The 3½-foot high zinc World War I statue called Resting Doughboy was stolen from the park in Lakemore in September 2008. It had been there for 60 years.

    Two weeks later, the damaged statue was found in a nearby reservoir.

    The Akron Beacon Journal reports that two local veterans spent hundreds of hours welding and painting to restore the original statue.

    On Monday, the doughboy was brought back for a dedication ceremony after the village's Veterans Day program.
