Afternoon Brew: Panty Thief, Jim Donovan Gets Anchor Gig, EPA Investigating Cancer Cluster, and Commissioner vs. Videographer




Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you suspiciously eye your Quagmire-like neighbor.

— Cops say a panty thief is on the loose in Elyria. Everyone loves a good panty thief story. (WOIO)

— The EPA will investigate a cancer cluster near Sandusky, one that's been garnering press coverage and outrage for years. On the chances they find the source: "doubtful." Ah, that's the EPA we know and love. (AP)

— Lorain County Commissioner tries to fire videographer who tapes council meetings. Videographer gets to keep his job after two other officials vote in his favor, but he contends the quality of the product wouldn't be the same without him, because after all, fiscal budget discussions don't have the right drama without proper jump cutting and cinematography.

— WKYC announced Jim Donovan will join Robin Swoboda as co-anchor on the 7 p.m. newscast. Congrats to him. Good guy. (
