This is not the LeBron car that will be auctioned. Fools.
  • This is not the LeBron car that will be auctioned. Fools.

Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you scrounge up $100 to try and win LeBron's 2009 MVP SUV.

— The Fulton Road bridge is still not done and won't be until July. That's only a year late, which in terms of government is like on-time. Too bad businesses effected by the work have already gone out of business. (

— A tornado near Toledo killed a half-dozen people and caused an estimated $100 million in damage while uprooting and totaling homes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all effected by the devastating storm. (AP)

— If you missed it last week, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that police can hand out speeding tickets based on visual estimates of speed. Insert your own prescription eyewear joke here. And then tell it to the police officer when he pulls you over for going 42 in a 35 with no radar evidence. (ABC)

— Using Roundup to kill your weeds? You're just making the weeds stronger. Those mothereffers are becoming harder to kill thanks to your chemicals. (Dayton Daily News)
