Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you fast in preparation for the hamburger festival this weekend.

— Cleveland Heights has plans to spruce up the Cedar Lee neighborhood and is now looking for the money to do so. No truth to rumors plan simply is to ask all young black males to kindly not go there anymore. (Cleveland Hts. Patch)

— A woman from L.A. was pulled over and arrested in Solon with Jolly Ranchers that were laced with weed. In other news, there are now Jolly Ranchers that are laced with weed. (Solon Patch)

— The AKC says dog thefts are on the rise. That's, well, that's just too sad to make a joke about. (NewsNet5)

— Tribe closer Chris Perez pays attention when you tweet at him. Also, he doesn't mind responding in kind when you're a dick. (@ChrisPerez54)
