Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you debate red snapper or cod for the fish tacos tonight.

— Columbus is undergoing some open-heart surgery on its roads here pretty soon. Up to 15 highway ramps will close, among other inconvenient orange barrel-related moves. The Dispatch is looking for a name for the road woes: So far, Olentangle is our favorite. (Dispatch on Tumblr)

— $80,000 worth of stuff was stolen from the Trinity Cathedral. A word to the offenders: St. Peter is not smiling right now. (WEWS)

— As Ohio moves toward JobsOhio, the private job board, 211 jobs were cut. Wait, what? (Ohio.com)

— A man digging in his backyard uncovered a grave for someone who died in 1864. Bonus: totally doesn't have to keep digging anymore, can sit inside and talk with media over a glass of lemonade and wife can't say anything. (Morning Journal)
