Good afternoon, Cleveland. The engines that make up the Scene newsroom — two cans of Diet Coke and a a bottle of smoothie-flavored Tums — are churning out this week's issue. That doesn't mean stuff isn't happening around Cleveland. Here's a few things to read, selected with great care by picking the first stories we came across.
— Slapping a cop will get your name in the newspaper and your picture on these fine pages. (Sandusky Register)
— ODOT is going to close a bunch of stuff again. Brush up on the latest detours. (NewsNet5)
— Heroin doses are going up and show no signs of stopping. Don't do heroin, kids. (NewsNet5)
— Who doesn't love learning about old buildings? (Abandoned Online)
And here's a fun little new tune.
