Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you apply for the open Harbor Master position.

— Folks out east are watching rivers with eager eyes. Melting ice has several waterways at or near flood stage and everyone knows what can happen in the worst case scenario. If you don't, here's a reminder from 1994. (NewsNet5)

— The Federal Election Commission says Dennis Kucinich has to pay back $52,443 to the taxpayers for his 2004 campaign for president and for marrying seventeen levels about his attractiveness. (Cleveland.com)

— Executive Caterer's Harlan Diamond is being investigated in connection with the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal. Sounds about right. Maybe the FBI can finally tell us why everyone pays so much for crappy bacon-wrapped water chestnuts. (Cleveland.com)

— Cleveland's Harbor Master has been fired. They should get Wally from the Harbor Inn to replace her. (WOIO)
