Grandson's Senior Recital by Amy Kenneley
The huge auditorium, filled to capacity the previous evening for a performance, echoed this morning with the smaller sounds of pre-recital tunings and directions.
This was my grandson's Senior recital, one that tested his four years of work at Belmont University's School of Music. He would be presenting five pieces, all reflecting the aspects of playing, composing and arranging music.
Cleveland finally lands a huge event - the Republican National Convention - and it seems there are all kinds of potential problems instead of just a profitable showcase for our city. Are you concerned?
The Rotary Club of Cleveland hosted their annual International Fellowship Day in Cleveland Ohio on April 7, 2016. The event featured the presentation of the International Service Award to Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.
After his speech Mayor Jackson was asked how the challenges of hosting the Republican National Convention (RNC).
He said we are not afraid of the challenge. We will step up our game to meet whatever challenge is before us and put Cleveland in the best light. This is about who we are. How you deal with adversity is how you are defined.
Before you return from your overseas trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the Ford F-150 when I turned into the driveway.
Fortunately it's not too bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me. I was coming home and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake. The garage door is slightly bent but the Ford F-150 fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your Corvette. I missed our bikes.
I am really sorry, but I know with your kind-hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweetheart.
I am enclosing a picture for you. I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again.
Your loving wife. XX
P.S: Your girlfriend called….

Judge Harper twice was a candidate for the Ohio Supreme Court -- for chief justice in 1980 and for justice in 1994. And she was the first African-American woman appointed to sit on the state's high court in 1992.
