Cuyahoga Valley National Park has opened what it’s calling its first “Front Door."

The Boston Mill Visitor Center is on Riverview Road in Peninsula. Park Superintendent Craig Kenkel hopes the new center will bring some new faces as well.

"We see this as being a place for those first time visitors who know nothing about Cuyahoga Valley and Northeast Ohio, but it’s also a place where returning visitors and local visitors can come and learn more about our interpretive scenes and the stories that comprise the National Park as well as its connection to Cleveland and Akron."

More than half of Northeast Ohio graduates leave the area once they get their degrees. That’s according to research from Team NEO. But that number can be deceiving.

Fewer than 47 percent of graduates stay in the region. While that may seem like a low number, Team NEO’s research chief Jacob Duritsky says it’s comparable to other large metropolitan areas. The problem is in the actual population.

Akron residents struggling with addiction have an additional option for recovery. BrightView Health has opened an outpatient treatment center in the city to further address the opioid epidemic in Northeast Ohio.

The facility offers medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy and social support.

Carl Knorr, a peer recovery supporter, says BrightView’s philosophy is to "treat the whole person" by offering specialized care for each patient.

A Stark County addiction treatment provider is opening a detox center this fall inside Canton's Aultman Hospital. CommQuest is relocating the service it’s been operating in Massillon.

CommQuest President and CEO Keith Hochadel says moving to Aultman will provide access for more people in need. And being in a hospital setting means they can help patients who often seek treatment in the emergency room.

As Hurricane Dorian heads toward the U.S., the American Red Cross is deploying local volunteers from Northeast Ohio to help in areas that could be affected.

The storm pummeled the Bahamas, causing widespread devastation and killing at least five people. Forecasters anticipate the hurricane will move toward the Florida coast late tonight.

Jim McIntyre, a spokesman for the Red Cross in Northeast Ohio, says it’s typical when disasters strike for local chapters across the country to band together and send volunteers.

Northeast Ohio manufacturing could increase dramatically over the next seven years if it embraces the Internet of Things, or IoT.

Industrial IoT is where computer devices are embedded in every step of manufacturing.

The advocacy group, Team NEO, has put together a roadmap for the region, detailing its strengths and weaknesses, with and without IoT.

Jacob Duritsky is the vice president of strategy and research for TeamNEO.
