Reporters’ Roundtable: Rules, Records and Rokakis

Posted Thursday, October 4, 2007

Two new rules this week: the new and improved sales tax in Cuyahoga County and a ban on the direct purchase of wine from large vintners. Elsewhere in the news: a republican party intern slows state government with the mother of all public records requests, a former accountant for the Catholic Diocese is convicted on fraud charges; Cuyahoga County Treasurer Jim Rokakis pens a piece for the Washington Post; and the Greater Cleveland RTA garners a major transportation award. Join us to round up those stories and others from across the region Thursday morning at nine.


Arts and Culture, Environment, Government/Politics, Courts/Crime - Fire/Law Enforcement, Energy, Ethics/Religion, Transportation, Regional Economy/Business - Analysis and Trends


Mark Naymik, political reporter, The Plain Dealer
