Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you try to contain your excitement for Tribe.

— Miami hasn't been the Redskins since 1997, but the school has allowed the Redskin logo to be used on various items even as they've made the transition to the RedHawks, considering the old logo part of their heritage. No more. Miami has mandated that merchants no longer use the Redskin. If Miami wins the World Series before the Indians do, then we know the curse of Chief Wahoo is indeed real. (Oxford Press)

— Councilman Jeff Johnson is receiving extra police protection after he received several threats. Yes, there are idiots everywhere, not just in Arizona. (WOIO)

— Cuyahoga County leaders are behind schedule in filling all the positions for the board of revision. In their defense, they've been pretty busy — Hallmark channel has run a lot of Golden Girls marathons lately. (Cleveland.com)

— Solon's mayor has decided it's probably not a good idea to let people hunt deer with crossbows in city limits. (Cleveland.com)
