Morning Brew: Akron Embraces Free Parking, Lame LeBron Feud, Basket Travelers, and ATM Thefts

Posted By on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 at 11:35 AM


Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you paddle down your driveway.

In an effort to to attract visitors and shoppers downtown, the city of Akron has decreed that your first hour at city parking garages will be free. Cool. Double cool: just about anything you can do in Akron can be done in under an hour, so you'll never actually have to pay. Oh, a quick side note: Cleveland Hts. is the worst city for parking. We can all agree they are douchenozzles, right? (NewsNet5)

— Did you know there's a basket weaving conference in Mentor each year that brings people from as far away as Alaska? (News-Herald)

— Daniel Gibson and LeBron James feuded on Twitter about who has the more unjustified sense of entitlement. Or who was the "King of Cleveland," or something. (ESPN)

— Someone stole an ATM from Great Lakes Mall but was caught with it, and a stolen van, in Cleveland later the same night. (News-Herald)
