Update: Joshua Jiles, the 17-year-old who led cops on a 50-mile, three-county chase in a stolen dump truck back in December, was sentenced to two and a half years in a juvenile detention facility after pleading guilty to a laundry list of charges. Juvenile Judge Linda Tucci Teodosio designed Jiles a "serious youth offender," which means he best behave at juvi lest she slap him with more serious adult offenses. The Beacon Journal also notes Jiles didn't apologize, saying he was drunk during the ride and doesn't remember much of what happened. (Ohio.com)

Tenants and landlords are bound to have tiffs every once in awhile. A drain clogs, a service call delayed, rent is late —- it can really be anything small or large. These disagreements usually end amicably, if not at least with civility.
They tend not to end with someone throwing dog poop. Not always though, as a recent incident in Lorain proves.
Yup, we can just about see 2011 peaking up over the horizon. It’s been a good year, Scenesters, but before you unscrew those bottles of Andre and de-lint your sport coat, we invite you to take one more trip with us to that most magical of places: The Suburban Police Blotter.
Today’s item is from Highland Heights, a leafy East Side enclave famed for it’s . . . Okay, well, Highland Heights is somewhere near Richmond Heights and Mayfield Heights. On Sunday night, a concerned citizen on Williamsburg Drive spotted something strange from the window. A man was walking all crazy-legged down the street. A drunkard? Smack addict? Zombie? The police were called.
In recent times, retailers’ competition to earn your pharmacy dollars has resulted in a weekly sweepstakes of savings: a gift card for switching your prescriptions to Target, cheap gas for bringing your new business to Giant Eagle. Consumer science proves that medicine works better when it comes with free crap.
But a new state law effective this week means it’s time to pick your favorite drug peddler and be prepared to stick with them. The Ohio State Board of Pharmacy declared that as of this coming Saturday, you may transfer any given prescription to a different pharmacy only once during the life of the prescription.

Up here from our perch in the ivory tower of journalism (aka the bar at Applebee’s), the Scene staff has an affinity for one part of the job in particular: reader comments. Those little boxes tagged to the end of stories give you guys your own piece of the show, a way to sing praise and fire off criticism. In all honestly, we love the connection — it keeps us humble. We write, you read. You write, we read. It’s that big circuit of fuzzy love we call journalism 2.0.
In the spirit of year-end retrospects, we’ve combed the comments. Here are our favorites, in no particular order, from the thoughtful and polished to invectives and long-streams of near incomprehensible rambling. Enjoy, and please keep it up.
