Budget Cuts For Schools During Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic created an economic crisis as well as a health crisis across the country. As a result, budgets for cities and states lost money on expected tax revenue disrupted by the commercial impact of covid-19. Ohio suffered a shortfall for which it hopes to make up with various cuts. Among them, schools face budget cuts to improve the state's bottom line. The budget cuts encompass many facets of Ohio's spending. Medicare loses out on $210 million of funding. State officials plan also to cut $110 million from higher education. Another $155 million gets slashed from education line items and other agencies. However, the bulk of budget cuts comes from the $300 million taken from K-12 schools across the state. Those cuts trickle down to individual districts now tasked with making their own budget cuts proportional to their share of the overall state budget. In Cleveland, Eric Gordon, CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School district, told ABC News 5 what they estimate the city's share to be. “For us we estimate it could be ... Read More

University Hospital Given 5,000 Sandwiches

Nurses, doctors, and other hospital staff serve as the front line defense against the novel coronavirus outbreak. Through their tireless work, thousands survive the harrowing experience of severe covid-19. As such, many have come out to support their heroic efforts. One such man decided to act on his gratitude by donating 5,000 sandwiches to the workers at University Hospital in Cleveland. David Coury, a 54-year-old man, laid in a hospital bed late March awaiting surgery. While Governor DeWine issued stay at home orders, surgeons removed cancer from Coury's tongue. The procedure went off without a hitch. During his stay, Coury remarked how diligent and hard-working the staff at University Hospital were. "It just moved me," he told CNN. After his successful surgery, from which he recovered and requires no additional treatment, he decided he wanted to help. That's when Coury turned to his brother-in-law, a Subway franchise owner, for assistance. 12 Hours of Sandwich Making to Deliver Thank You for University Hospital Staff Ghaz ... Read More

Gas Prices Fall Dramatically Across Ohio

Crime Alert App Unveiled In Cleveland

An app designed to provide users with real-time updates on potential criminal activity debuted in Cleveland. Known as Citizen, the app sends a crime alert when monitors discover illicit activity in progress. The free app operates out of an office in New York. There, individuals who once worked as journalists and first responders tune into police scanners. When they hear pertinent information, they push a crime alert to the Citizen app, alerting residents of the activity. Designed with public safety in mind, the app's former life drew criticism. Originally released as Vigilante, Apple banned the app from its store. Fears over inciting participation in crimefighting resulted in its suspension. After the failed 2016 launch, the company retooled the program and Vigilante became Citizen. Now, they focus on helping residents avoid problems in their neighborhood, rather than potentially inspire them to run towards it. The app's new branding proved successful. For example, they serve over 1 million users in ... Read More

HR Chief Resigns Amid Illegal Bonus Scandal

The human resources chief for Cuyahoga County, Douglas Dykes, resigned Monday in the latest news of a scandal surrounding his misdealings. The now former HR chief faces felony charges stemming back a year for theft. A year ago, prosecutors indicted Dykes for theft-in-office, a felony charge. Additionally, he faced other charges surrounding financial misappropriation of public funds. In one case, he provided an illegal bonus for a county official back in 2017. His misconduct came to light following a 2018 investigation into the county's IT department. Despite his indictment, Dykes remained HR chief until his resignation Monday. That position pays $180,000 as an annual salary, which is also the length of time elapsed between his indictment and resignation. Mary Louise Madigan, county spokesperson, refused to report whether or not Dykes provided a reason for his departure. However, an explanation may involve a recent payment made to the county. A $10,362 cashier's check written to the county bore the name James H ... Read More
