Cleveland Cavaliersa Championship Parade
We were offered media credentials for the historic Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade on June 22, 2016 but did not apply because we wanted to be part of the people celebrating rather than standing inside barricades. And we are so glad we did. Watching parade highlights later in the day on TV we were amazed at how what they showed on TV was so different from what we experienced.
TV showed fans behind barricades with the streets wide open as the parade circled the Q and Progressive Field. But on East 9th Street there were no barriers and fans converged from both sides of the street almost meeting in the middle. Mounted and other Police did their best to keep people back as the parade came down East 9th. But as you will see in the videos it was very close up and very real.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One & Two
The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Cleveland Museum of Art Centennial

Judge Sara Harper honored
The Committee on Arrangements; Ohio Republican Party, Republican Party of Cuyahoga County, Sara J. Harper Leadership Institute, I Group, The Committee of 40, Lauren A. Gore, esq., WEA, Inc., LA Gore & Principals and the Inner City Republican Movement hosted a Community Black History Celebration honoring the Life & Achievement of Judge Sara J. Harper.
Her illustrious career spans the decades, as one who has toppled barriers, and made history. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1926, Judge Harper was the first African-American woman to graduate from Case Western Reserve University Law School. She also was the first woman to serve on the judiciary of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
After retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel, she won a seat on the Ohio 8th District Court of Appeals, becoming one of the first of two African-American women elected to the court in 1990.
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.
