  • Gov. Mike DeWine changes Cleveland Indians attendance limits just before home opener

    04/05/2021 4:17:12 PM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 39 replies ^ | April 5, 2021 | Jeremy Pelzer
    As the Cleveland Indians prepared for their home opener Monday under attendance limits set by Gov. Mike DeWine, the governor abruptly changed spectator capacity rules for Progressive Field and other outdoor venues in Ohio. It’s now up to the Indians to readjust based on the new regulations, which eliminate state rules that outdoor venues can only open at 30% capacity but still require spectators to sit in groups of 10 people or fewer spaced apart from each other. It’s still unclear exactly how many people will be allowed at Progressive Field now that an Ohio Department of Health order issued...

    Cleveland Indians fans are about to meet the political correctness police as Opening Day arrives. The ball club is banning headdresses and face paint that mimic Native American headdresses or face paint. In fact, people can be ejected from or denied entrance to home games if they wear headdresses or face paint.

    A man was killed and at least 17 other people were injured in a shooting Saturday night at a party thrown by multiple motorcycle clubs in Cleveland, authorities said. Cleveland police said Sunday that they responded to a call just before midnight Saturday on the city's east side, where they found a 48-year-old man dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Many other victims had left the scene by the time police arrived and began showing up at hospitals across the city overnight, said Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia, a police spokeswoman. "At this time, it is believed that a total of 18 people...
  • Ohio Bill Would Require Hundreds of Ballot Drop Boxes Be Installed Across State

    Democratic lawmakers want to increase voter drop box access throughout the state of Ohio, proposing to install hundreds of boxes for future elections. State Reps. Bride Rose Sweeney, D-Cleveland, and Michele Lepore-Hagan, D-Youngstown, believe the additional drop boxes will make voting more convenient for Ohioans seeking to cast absentee ballots. Secretary of State Frank LaRose, who oversees Ohio elections, restricted each county to having one drop box apiece during the 2020 General Election — and is directing the 88 county boards of elections to follow the same rule in the upcoming May election. House Bill 209 would significantly increase the...

    A federal grand jury in Cleveland, Ohio, charged Maejor Page, whose real name is Tyree Conyers-Page, with three counts of money laundering and one count of wire fraud, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release. The indictment set forth by the government alleged that Page created a 501(c)(3) Facebook account titled “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta.” He allegedly used the account to defraud individuals of over more than $450,000 after the tax-exempt status was revoked by the IRS, according to a press release. “Page is accused of using unprecedented tensions and uncertainty due to widespread civil unrest...

    The Supreme Court delivers another blow to a victim of egregious police abuse.On July 28, 2016, a group of Cleveland police officers dressed in plain clothes and driving in an unmarked car idled up to a house, where they spotted a man on the front porch. The man was named Shase Howse, and he lived in that house with his mother. The police proceeded to beat and arrest him. Last year a federal court ruled that those two cops were protected by the legal doctrine known as qualified immunity. And this morning, buried in the Supreme Court order, came...

    A veteran Cleveland councilman was busted Tuesday on charges of bilking the city out of more than $127,000 over an eight-year span, federal prosecutors said. Democrat Kenneth Johnson, who was elected in 1980, was arrested by FBI agents in Cleveland after a federal grand jury named him in a 15-count indictment with violations related to federal program theft, the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio announced Tuesday.

    CLEVELAND — A new School of One, run by the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, is focused on creating a space for students who identify as LGBTQ+. During the pandemic, classes are online, but once hybrid learning is available, leaders at the school hope to have some students at the LGBT Community Center on Detroit. CMSD says it is the first of its kind in the country. "It blows my mind. I didn't honestly think it was going to be this easy," said DaJon Battle, a program administrator with the district. Battle, who identifies as Queer, said representation in schools is...

  • ‘It’s like war numbers’: Cleveland endures worst homicide rate in recent history in 2020

    A weak economy, high unemployment rates, failing schools, and high child poverty levels all plagued Cleveland in 1982. Those same issues remain in 2020, laid barer by the coronavirus pandemic that limited access to social services and increased social isolation that devastated people’s mental health. The two years are linked because they represent the worst two years in recent history for deadly violence in Cleveland. The city hit 185 homicides on Dec. 20, the most in a single year since 1982 when the city hit 195 homicides and when nearly 200,000 more people called the city home. The homicide rate...

    Down, down, down. In three minutes, the skip drops nearly 1,700 feet below Cleveland. Then the giant metal door swings open, and you’re deposited in an other-world, with walls, ceiling and floor made of salt. Dirty brown salt at the Cargill mine’s entrance, where the rock has absorbed diesel fumes and dust for more than 60 years. Pristine white, with glimmering flecks, at the mine’s far reaches, 3 miles north, under Lake Erie. “I look out at the water, and it’s like, man, we’re under that!” said Cargill employee Cachet Hilton, 45. Every day, the 5-mile wide mine gets a...

    CLEVELAND, OH—Due to mounting pressure from a growing consensus of 12 people on Twitter and The New York Times, the Cleveland Indians have finally chosen to change their team's name and get rid of the highly offensive "Chief Wahoo" mascot. After testing several new names with focus groups, the owners finally settled on the highly non-offensive title "Cleveland Genderless Sports Players With No Discernable Racial Features Or Specific Ethnic Background." "After listening to the earnest pleas of a few recent college grads who sat through a Native American History course once, we realized something had to change," said owner Paul...

    In the latest episode of corporate wokeness fixing a problem that doesn’t actually exist, the Major League Baseball team the Cleveland Indians is changing its name after having used the moniker for 105 years. This follows the decision by the Washington Redskins of the National Football League to change their name this season. Whatever you think of that decision by what is now the Washington Football Team, it is plainly obvious that these two cases are nothing alike. Not to put too fine a point on it, but the term “Indian” to indicate a Native American is not even remotely...

    The Cleveland Indians will be bowing to pressure from mostly Caucasian social justice warriors over their “racist” nickname. An announcement is expected as early as this week.The NY Times reported the long-time Major League Baseball franchise will be following the Washington Football Team, formerly known as the Redskins, in pandering to demands by those who are easily offended by traditions. That means Chief Wahoo, the iconic mascot for the team, will no longer be employed. According to The Times:Following years of protests from fans and Native American groups, the Cleveland Indians have decided to change their team name, moving away...

    Cleveland's Major League Baseball team has decided to change its nickname, moving away from the moniker it has employed for more than 100 years and that is considered insensitive to indigenous peoples, according to David Waldstein and Michael S. Schmidt of the New York Times. An announcement from the team could come as soon as this week, per the Times. It's unclear how Cleveland will refer to itself during the upcoming season. One option is to keep the name for an additional year before then transitioning to a new identity; another is to go the route of the National Football...

    The “October 2011” movement organizer Dennis Trainor tells me that he believes capitalism is “homicidal” and that the U.S. needs a revolution. “This is not a reform movement,” he said. He is part of the illegal occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. The “October 2011” movement is not part of, but endorses the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began several weeks ago. Although he describes himself as new to professional agitation, Trainor runs the “No Cure For That” website and served as a writer/media consultant for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign. Kucinich is the Cleveland Democrat perhaps best known...

    Officials for the City of Cleveland said 11 cases of the Wuhan coronavirus could be traced back to the Sept. 29 presidential debate. The cases were a result of debate pre-planning and set-up, with the majority of cases impacting out-of-state travelers, particularly debate organizers and members of the media. The news comes after President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, the president was transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday. "As the cases involve people in and out of state some of whom may be...
