Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you call the city of Cleveland to warn them it's going to snow this weekend.

— A Canton woman was nabbed for her 8th DUI. That's like three too many. (WEWS)

— A umbrella group that runs four charter schools in Cleveland received a $2 million grant from Charter School Growth Fund to open four more schools. No snark here. Deserving group, good schools, good for Cleveland. (

— ODOT is just about done installing those new electronic signs around local highways that will tell drivers estimated time to certain landmarks. We think the locations they've chosen are kind of useless, but whatever, it only cost $18.2 million. (News Herald)

— Vince Russo was officially sentenced to 18 months in prison today for his role in the Cuyahoga County corruption mess. He doesn't have to report until after his wife gives birth, however. (Fox 8)
