Two wild bobcat kittens were recently found abandoned on the side of the road in Northeast Ohio. Thankfully, the brother and sister pair were rescued and eventually sent to the Kevin P. Clinton Wildlife Center at the Penitentiary Glen Reservation in Willoughby to be looked after.

The plan is to send the duo back into the wild sometime this spring. And eventually a live web camera feed will show off their every movement to the public. Check out the reservation's camera site right here.

The reservation shared some heart-melting photos below:

Cleveland’s At Wits End To Play One Final Show on Saturday at the Phantasy

In 2000, Aaron “okPANTS” Sechrist formed the hardcore band Red Sky Falling. The following year, the band played its first show at the Phantasy Niteclub. That band morphed into At Wits End, and the group had a good long run that Sechrist says will now come to an end. The band’s upcoming show at the Phantasy will represent his last performance.

The concert, which takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, will double as Sechrist’s 40th birthday party and a Halloween show. Sechrist has called it the Pants Pantsley Memorial Show. American Werewolves, Above This Fire, Light Years and Seeress will also perform. DJ Larry Szyms will host an '80s-themed afterparty.

“The show is more about the other bands playing with us," says Sechrist. "We are not the headliner. It’s nice icing on the cake that my guys wanted to play this show."

At Wits End last performed about five years ago, but Sechrist likens returning to the stage to riding a bicycle.

"I’m more worried about my cardio than my actual singing," he says. "It’ll just be fun. We only ever recorded nine songs, and we played them so much that I’m not worried about relearning them. If we were opening for Rancid at some arena, it would be a different story. But this is really just a party with our friends. We’re like the ornament on the car."

Tickets cost $10.

It's Deadline Day for the Anti-Nuclear Bailout Referendum in Ohio

Posted By on Mon, Oct 21, 2019 at 9:07 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohioans who want voters to decide the future of a new clean-energy law soon will know if their efforts are fruitful. Today is the deadline for opponents of House Bill 6 to submit the signatures needed to get a referendum on the November 2020 ballot.

The controversial bill was signed into law in July, and includes new fees on electric bills that would keep two First Energy nuclear plants open. Melissa English, director of the opposition group Ohio Consumers Power Alliance, said petitioners spent the weekend in an all-out blitz to reach as many voters as possible.

"Informed and engaged citizens are the best possible hedges against the abuses of government and corporate power. That's what this is about," English said. "This has been a long, ugly fight. Pro-bailout forces understand that if Ohioans get a chance to vote on this they're going to vote it down."

Opponents still are awaiting a federal court decision on their request for an additional 90 days to collect signatures. They contend it took too long for the Ohio Attorney General's Office to approve petition language, and a pre-registration requirement allowed pro-bailout groups to target petitioners. Meanwhile, FirstEnergy Solutions is asking the Ohio Supreme Court to block the referendum, claiming that because the bill concerns a tax, it cannot legally be overturned through a referendum.

The referendum campaign spurred a war between opposing sides. Pro-bailout groups ran TV ads claiming the Chinese government was behind the referendum, and allegedly circulated an alternative, informal petition. English said there's even been physical intimidation.

"We saw blockers assaulting petitioners. And pro-bailout forces and the blockers were actually offering to bribe people to not turn in their petitions and to leave the state," she said. "I've never seen the like in 30 years of organizing."

Generation Now, a group that hired petition blockers, released a statement saying it would not tolerate illegal tactics, and noted one staffer was fired after documented misbehavior. Attorney General Dave Yost is investigating reports of intimidation around the campaign, and encourages citizens to report any such behavior.
