    Another woman has filed a civil lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, raising the number of women who have accused the Cleveland Browns quarterback of inappropriate sexual conduct during massage sessions to 24. The lawsuit says the plaintiff massaged Watson twice. The first session, the lawsuit says, was cut short because "Watson had to leave abruptly after taking a phone call." The lawsuit says Watson scheduled a second massage a few days later, when the woman says that Watson exposed himself and masturbated and "offered no apology or explanation for his conduct." The lawsuit says the plaintiff "shortly thereafter quit massage therapy."...

    An NFL player is in the middle of one of the largest controversies the league has ever seen, and the silence from key figures has never been more noticeable. New allegations against Deshaun Watson are coming in, and a lawsuit against the quarterback has now expanded to include the Houston Texans, but you’d never know anything was happening if you only paid attention to the NFL directly or the Cleveland Browns. On May 24, commissioner Roger Goodell said the league’s investigation into Watson was winding down. As recently as last week it was reported that the league had completed its...

    The wife of never-Trump Ohio Senate candidate Matt Dolan asked Democrats to vote for him in Tuesday’s Republican primary. “ANYONE can vote tomorrow! Just walk into your polling place and ask for a Republican ballot. Fill in the bubble for Matt and walk out,” Jessica Maggard Hart wrote Monday on Facebook. “I‘d prefer to keep FB to horse and dog photos and funny posts, but sometimes things are truly important,” the candidate’s wife continued. “Matt wants to move Ohio FORWARD. Every other candidate wants to look back to 2020. If you want Ohio to be THE focus of this campaign,...

    For Marxism to take hold, everything that came before it must be burnt to the ground, according to the standards of today’s radical leftists. No matter the historical background, if it does not serve the purposes of the Great Reset’s dystopian agenda, it must be torn down to the ground. Even if it’s something as simple as a name. This has been proven across the culture, from iconic food brands like Aunt Jemima, which is no more – to Sports, where the Cleveland Indians have gone the way of the dodo – across all areas, the illiberal left is on...

    Carlos Maldonado was delivering a specimen his physician wanted him to take to Cleveland Clinic’s Lutheran Hospital location on West 25th Street for testing on Saturday, December 18, 2021. When he arrived at 10:30 a.m. Maldonado learned the laboratory had closed two hours earlier due to a worker shortage. The Lutheran Hospital employee who turned Maldonado away explained that only one person showed up for work though four were scheduled. The single employee who did arrive for work was sent back home. The normal Saturday workload was too much for one worker to handle....

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – As a record-breaking coronavirus surge rages in Ohio, local restaurants have been forced to reckon with the virus just days before Christmas.

The Flying Fig in Ohio City is one of the restaurants that will remain open for takeout but has closed its dining room to customers. Owner Karen Small cited staffing shortages and coronavirus cases behind the decision. “We had a few positive cases...

    University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic—two of Cleveland, Ohio’s major healthcare systems—announced last week they have reversed their Covid-19 vaccine mandates for employees. The move comes after a federal court blocked the Biden administration’s vaccine requirement for healthcare workers. "University Hospitals has been moving to implement the COVID-19 vaccine mandate required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In light of the federal court injunction issued Nov. 30 that temporarily blocks CMS from enforcing the mandate, come Jan. 4, unless there is further legal action, caregivers may continue to provide patient care services regardless of their vaccination status,"...

    Three retail pharmacy chains recklessly distributed vast amounts of pain pills in two Ohio counties, a federal jury said on Tuesday, in a verdict that could set the tone for US city and county governments that want to hold pharmacies accountable for their roles in the opioid crisis. Lake and Trumbull counties blamed pharmacies operated by CVS, Walgreens and Walmart for not stopping the flood of pills that caused hundreds of overdose deaths and cost each of the two counties about $1bn, their attorney said.

    MLB’s Cleveland franchise officially changed its name to the Guardians Friday, and the new day in the organization’s history started with a bang. The Guardians opened their team store for fans to get their hands on new merchandise. As fans were shopping, the sign installed outside the team store came crashing down onto the sidewalk. The sign fell when a worker was on a ladder checking bolts. "Well, that's an ominous sign," one person yelled. No one was injured. Regardless, fans were lining up early to get some new swag with the Guardians logo. "This kind of exceeds expectations. Having...

    Far-left Democrats were dealt a big blow as former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, was defeated by Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown in a much-anticipated special US House primary election. With 96.5 percent of precincts reporting, Brown led Turner by 4,380 votes out of more than 71,000 votes cast. Turner conceded the race soon after 10 p.m. local time, telling supports: “On this night, we will not cross the river.” The contest in Ohio’s 11th District, a deep-blue constituency that includes most of Cleveland, parts of Akron and several majority-black precincts in between...
