Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you raise your voice over the din of Judge Judy to try and get the cop's attention.
— The Elyria police chief has yanked TVs from common areas in the department over concerns they were becoming a distraction to the cops. He said if cops want to keep up on breaking news, there's always the internet. Because no one ever killed time and got distracted by the internet. (Chronicle Telegram)
— A major heroin bust was announced yesterday. The multi-state ring was supplying smack to Northeast Ohio and is evidence that heroin may be overtaking cocaine as Cleveland's drug of choice. Turns out we prefer track marks on our arms over eroded septums. Who knew? (Cleveland.com)
— If you're making counterfeit money with a Lexmark printer in a room at a Motel 6, you're probably going to get caught. (Lorain Morning Journal)
— Peter Raskind has been named interim CEO of Cleveland schools while the city searches for a permanent leader. He will make $1. We're no experts, but that sounds like a low-ball offer. (Cleveland.com)
We'll be back momentarily.
