One of the smaller fish in the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal is back at work after three years probation but there is some outrage over where the new job is. Could you survive a full week on just $77for your food, transport, utilities, entertainment and incidentals? Three members of Congress want to give it a shot but is it a good faith effort or a slap in the face? Nearly $400 thousand in public money to refurbish a house for a new hire? Sweet deal. We'll tell you who's got it Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas with host Rick Jackson.
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.
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 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.
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.
