Weekly Regional Roundup

Weekly Regional Roundup July 18, 2014

Who establishes a campaign website with their own name that uses words like "Incompetence; Mismanagement; and Corruption"? No one would of course, but one major Ohio political party is hoping you won't notice 'they' are bankrolling the on-line site which prominently uses a competitors name. We'll discuss that Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas. We'll also look at a huge gift for public square and explain why Browns owner Jimmy Haslam can breathe a little easier. Join Rick Jackson at 9:00 on 90.3.

Coming to America

Coming to America July 17, 2014

Child migrants crossing the border on their own have captured the headlines, and the attention of the federal government. The Obama administration is asking for $4 billion to deal with the problem. But here in Ohio, we don't see many child migrants. In fact, Cleveland has one of the lowest foreign-born populations among major U.S. cities. We'll discuss what's happening at the border and here in Ohio.

Safety First in Food Buying July 16, 2014

Food trucks are offering some unbelievably tasty fare all over town this summer. Local festivals and county fairs are filled with food. And roadside stands and farmer's markets offer homemade pies, sauces and various delicacies. Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about making sure that food is safe to eat. What are the laws? Who inspects? And how can you have confidence in the quality and safety of the food you're buying? Join host Mike McIntyre.

But statistically speaking, both groups of drivers have a higher risk of accidents. Aside from taking the keys from grandparents or making the kids wait to drive, what's being done to make it safer to be behind the wheel? Or on the road with them? Driver's ed for the young and old; join Mike McIntyre Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.

The Prodigal King

The Prodigal King July 14, 2014

Late last week LeBron James announced he's bringing his talents back to the shores of Lake Erie. In a letter published on Sports Illustrated he wrote; "who am I to hold a grudge?" It seems Cleveland fans feel the same way, already flocking the streets of downtown holding signs declaring the King's return and buying tees that say "Forgiven." What does LeBron's decision to return mean for Northeast Ohio?
