Women of Note

Women of Note July 24, 2014

Crain's Cleveland's Women of Note may seem to have little in common at first glance. Some work in business, others run non-profits. Some deal with medicine, others with money. But all of them have overcome challenges in their lives to persevere and succeed. We'll hear the stories to four of these remarkable women, and find out what advice they have to succeed in work and in life.

Toward Healthier Seniors

Toward Healthier Seniors July 23, 2014

Our population is getting older, but older doesn't mean what it used to. Join Mike McIntyre for The Sound of Ideas Wednesday morning at 9:00 as we learn about how older folks in Northeast Ohio are staying in shape mentally and physically and about community resources aimed at helping seniors stay vibrant and independent. Why did a quarter of seniors in a recent survey say the best year of their life was the one they just finished? We'll find out Wednesday. .

Should Cleveland and East Cleveland Merge?

Should Cleveland and East Cleveland Merge? July 22, 2014

Should East Cleveland become a neighborhood of Cleveland instead of its neighbor? Some say a merger would benefit both cities. They say it would move Cleveland closer to University Circle and add to its population while possibly solving East Cleveland's money woes. A merger would require a majority of voters from both cities. But many East Clevelanders and Clevelanders say no, thanks.

Toward a Long-Term Road Fix

Toward a Long-Term Road Fix July 21, 2014

The nation's aging infrastructure needs a lot of repair, but how are we going to pay for it? The federal highway trust fund is expected to run out of cash later this summer. That means not only rough roads, but lost jobs. The House passed a short-term fix, and the Senate's looking at one. But what about the long term? Raising the gas tax? State tolls on Interstate highways? Corporate tax reform? Ideas welcome with Mike McIntyre Monday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.

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.
