What We're Reading in Cleveland This Morning: Jan. 16

Posted By on Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 9:24 AM

- George Gund III died yesterday:

George, along with his brother Gordon, bought the Cavaliers basketball franchise from Ted Stepien in 1983 for $20 million. They sold the team in 2005 to Quicken Loans founder and billionaire Dan Gilbert in 2005.

He also served on the board of the George Gund Foundation, which his father founded in 1952.

"George was a kind and thoughtful and generous man," said David Abbott, who has been the foundation's executive director since 2003. "He was also very funny and had a low key way of speaking which could disarm people. He lived life to the fullest."

- North Canton's schools superintendent, Michael Hartenstein, announced several new security measures this week. For instance, parents will now have to show ID when picking up a child, the district will install security vestibules at all schools and provide CB radios to all employees and other measures.

- And now here's your daily opportunity to learn about "strangles" disease, via The News-Herald. It's a very infectious disease that bears a high fever - and it's spreading among horses at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Painesville Township.
