Guns and Ankles: What We're Reading This Morning in Cleveland: Jan. 17



- The national gun control conversation is maintaining its vigor, especially following President Barack Obama's presentation yesterday. The PD's John Caniglia reports from Seven Hills on the fast-paced inventory turnaround at Five Star Firearms.

- Over in Geauga County, The News-Herald offers Troy Township resident James McDermott's story of total ankle replacement.

- Strongsville Patch has the word on a lawsuit bubbling up between neighbors in a rather well decorated cul-de-sac:

The man behind the Christmas lights on Crown Point Parkway — the cul de sac that's made national news for its annual holiday display — is being sued by a neighbor in Small Claims Court.

Kevin Roberts is seeking $3,000 from Dan Hoag, alleging a fireworks display on Thanksgiving ruined his dinner and damaged his property.
