Re: “Cleveland and Dallas Named RNC Host City Finalists

Steven --- Ah, too true. Fixed. Shouldn't be watching Lost reruns while I write, anyway.

Re: “Climbing Up the Walls: A Rock-Climbing Couple from Tremont Wants to Bring Vertical Fun to an Ancient Church

To address some of the comments here: I spoke with Niki and Chick for more than an hour about all aspects of the rock climbing business and their own plans to bring a facility to CLE. The interview as published - and as discussed prior to publication with my editor - was about their experiences as climbers in and around Tremont and their plans to bring a facility to CLE. The timing of the development plans at West 117th and Lake make their own experiences and plans newsworthy. This wasn't written as a longform feature on the climbing community writ large.

I've added Chick's references to the Cleveland Rock Gym in Euclid and Kendall Rock Gym in Peninsula, both of which were discussed during the interview.

To ask whether the subjects here paid for the interview borders on ludicrous.

Re: “You Can (Maybe) See the Northern Lights Tonight

I'm finding out that it's pretty hard to nail down a solid timeframe, Natalie. Most reports essentially say that 8 p.m. onward (with a peak sometime closer to 2 - 4 a.m.) is the general range. Clouds are going to be an issue, of course, but it should be cool to try to catch a glimpse!

Re: “Plain Dealer Journalists Told To Wait By The Phone In The Morning For Layoff News

^ Good point, Molly. A few changes were made above to reflect that it's the whole newsroom being affected here.

Re: “Moving the Needle on Legalizing Herb in Ohio

But also, thanks for the comment. There are some great thoughts up there and I think there are a lot of interesting elements to talk about going forward.

Re: “Moving the Needle on Legalizing Herb in Ohio

That line is probably an editorializing reach - and I should probably have expanded on the history behind similar bills in Columbus and their fates (perhaps as an upcoming 'history of marijuana legislation in Ohio' post, or something...).

I'll stand by that one, though, and add that I used that paragraph to pivot to organizations and people on the ground working to enact change. Hagan is certainly in a position to keep the conversation robust, but the dichotomy between his work and groups like NORML in Ohio shows where the more significant - and likely more meaningful - support lies.
