Trump declares opioids a public health emergency

WASHINGTON (AP) — In ringing and personal terms, President Donald Trump on Thursday pledged to “overcome addiction in America,” declaring the opioid crisis a nationwide public health emergency and announcing new steps to combat what he described as the worst drug crisis in U.S. history. Trump’s declaration, which will be effective for 90 days and can be renewed, will allow the government to redirect resources, including toward expanded access to medical services in rural areas. But it won’t bring new dollars to fight a scourge that kills nearly 100 Americans a day. “As Americans we cannot allow this to continue,” Trump said in a speech at the White House, where he bemoaned an epidemic he sai

Fats Domino dies at 89

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Fats Domino, the amiable rock ‘n’ roll pioneer whose steady, pounding piano and easy baritone helped change popular music while honoring the traditions of the Crescent City, has died. He was 89. Mark Bone, chief investigator with the Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, coroner’s office, said Domino died of natural causes early Tuesday. In appearance, he was no matinee idol. He stood 5-feet-5 and weighed more than 200 pounds, with a wide, boyish smile and a haircut as flat as an album cover. But Domino sold more than 110 million records, with hits including “Blueberry Hill,” ″Ain’t That a Shame” — originally titled “Ain’t It A Shame”— and other standards of rock ‘n’ roll. He was o

Briggs makes runs for School Board

She’s young and a single mother of two, but with all of the time she’s invested into her children and schools in Cleveland Heights, it is those ingredients and more that makes Tiera Briggs, 33, a prime candidate for a board seat on Cleveland Heights -University Heights School District. “I am running to advocate for equity in the district to make sure that those who feel under represented have a voice on the board,” said Briggs.

Buzzard Luck! They’re calling for Hue’s head

The Cleveland Browns and coach Hue Jackson can’t win for losing. Jackson called a timeout just as Ryan Succop was sailing a game winning kick wide left. Then as the Titans reset after the timeout he nailed it right down Alfred Lerner Way to send the Browns to a 12-9 overtime defeat. Next week the Browns will play Minnesota at Twickenham Stadium in London. I actually questioned the sanity of my L.A. homey Hue Jackson when he decided to take the Cleveland Browns coaching job instead of the New York Giants, but it hindsight I don’t know if it could have been any worse. There isn’t anyone who knows anything about football will question Jackson’s ability to coach a football team. He was the last

Democrats & Republicans agree on Issue

Democrats and Republicans on Monday finally agreed on an issue that everyday Ohio citizens have known for some time: Prescription costs and the greedy drug industry are out of control and action is needed.

As reported by MSNBC, President Trump said, “Drug companies are out of control. The drug prices have gone through the roof, and drug companies are getting away with murder.” “Whether you’re Democrat, Republican, or Independent, everyone can agree: the drug

Prosecutor turns his life around to free the Wrongful Convicted

Blind Justice, published August 2017, by Mark Godsey, blatantly exposes the psychology and politics of wrongful convictions, from the inside world of the justice system. Godsey, a former New York federal prosecutor, converted to the outer side and co-founded the Ohio Innocent Project (OIP), in 2003. In fourteen years, the OIP freed 25 exonerees of the 2,101 nationwide, whom spent a combined total of 18,250 years in prison, according to the National Registry of Exonerations.
