Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you write down in your diary what a big day July 8, 2010 was — the day the Browns signed Bobby Engram.

— Ohio was home to the oldest postal worker in the country... until she died the other day. She was 94-years-old and was operating a one-room postal station out of her own house. It's easier to steal the mail that way, I hear. (AP)

— Ohio and Kentucky have been fighting over an 8-ton rock. The Indian Head Rock had sat in the Ohio River until it was hoisted by a bunch of industrious Buckeye hooligans three years ago. Courts have now ruled that it belongs to Kentucky. Some lonely redneck is going to be real excited to get his girlfriend back. (WLWT)

— The Ohio Lottery hit over $2.4 billion in sales last year. Yep, Ohioans just have no money. Anyone know the Pick 3 from last night, by the way? (NACS)

— The Jeremiah Morrow Bridge on Interstate 71 — built in 1965 and spanning some 2,224 feet — is being replaced. The $88 million project is needed because the Jeremiah Morrow is old, in constant need of repairs, and just like the bridge that collapsed in Minnesota. As if those are good reasons... (Business Week)
