Posted Wednesday, September 3, 2008

Many people tend to think of Tremont as a place of trendy restaurants, she-she bars or a place of high-profile crime. But it's home to thousands of long-time residents who are fiercely proud of living there. On Wednesday, September 3rd, the Sound of Ideas® will broadcast live from the front porch of St. Augustine's rectory on W. 14th. We'll talk with church leaders, residents and business owners to find out, what's it like to live in the Tremont neighborhood? How has the community handled the recent arson of Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman's home, and what does the region have to learn from the Tremont experience? We'll also find out why, as many residents say, they have such a strong feeling of "belonging?" Tremont, a community, on The Sound of Ideas®.
