Public Transportation in Northeast Ohio

Public Transportation in Northeast Ohio February 24, 2015

Public transportation in Northeast Ohio is always a hot topic, whether its investment in new projects, the reach of service or simply whether the buses and trains run on time. On this Sound of Ideas, we're joined by the man who drives, figuratively, the Regional Transit Authority bus, CEO Joe Calabrese. How will Public Square's remake impact bus service? What new projects are planned? How's the financial picture?

Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s

Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s February 23, 2015

More than five million Americans have brain-destroying Alzheimer's Disease in the U.S. and cases are expected to more than double by 2050 as the population ages. But it's not only the elderly who suffer. While early-onset Alzheimer's is rare, it's also incredibly devastating and, because of the recent film "Still Alice," it's in the public consciousness.

Weekly Regional Roundup

Weekly Regional Roundup February 20, 2015

The state Supreme Court strikes down residents' hopes to kill the drill. Monroe Falls wanted to control oil and gas drilling within city limits but the high court said no. A group of residents wants to recall Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson. We'll discuss their beef. And how well do you know your Ohio history? We'll hear how the Civil War Battle of Salineville may soon be memorialized. Join host Rick Jackson starting at 9:00 on 90.3.

Will Recreational Marijuana Use Be Legalized in Ohio?

Will Recreational Marijuana Use Be Legalized in Ohio? February 19, 2015

Ohioans may get a chance this fall at the polls, several actually, to decide whether recreational marijuana should be legal here. But even proponents disagree on how that should happen. One group wants state regulated growing zones funded by a pot tax and limits on home-grown weed. Another wants to make marijuana "as legal as lettuce." Another is pushing just medical marijuana. Do any stand a chance?

Housing, History and Race

Housing, History and Race February 18, 2015

To understand the struggling neighborhoods of Northeast Ohio -- the mostly black neighborhoods where chronic disease, crime, poor education and foreclosures are more prevalent, we must first understand history. These neighborhoods were designed to be at a disadvantage. Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, a look at the history of purposeful segregation in Cleveland and its impact on the well being of our neighborhoods today. Join host Mike McIntyre.
