Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you clean up the ashes from your LeBron jersey.

— Now that LeBron James has bolted to Miami he's become Public Enemy No. 1 around Northeast Ohio. The only other person that could compare is Art Modell, who spoke recently about LeBron's defection. Turns out Modell still has no regrets about moving the Browns and damaging an entire city and fanbase. Funny, I still want to punch him in the face. (Cleveland.com)

— The teachers union and Cleveland schools have come up with a tentative contract that would keep seniority rights, include some pay concessions, and save a majority of the 660 jobs that would have been lost without an agreement. No joke here, that's just good news. (Cleveland.com)

— If you want some anti-LBJ gear, this place has some decent tees. (KissMyAssLeBron.com)

— Stark County residents are worried about a "mysterious creature" that has been seen lurking around their houses, perhaps going after their pets. Fox 8 does everything short of calling the wolf-dog demonic to up the drama factor. Pretty sure tonight they'll be reporting the wolf-dog can fly, will scurry down your chimney, eat all your leftovers, then tie you up and make you watch House of Payne on repeat.(Fox 8)
