Thyra Chaney loves movies. Like, really loves them.

“I love the dialogue. I love the production,” she says. “I love every single thing about it.”

A documentary film crew is recording interviews with Clevelanders about a violent week in 1968. This summer marks the 50th anniversary of a deadly gun battle in Glenville.  There are different accounts as to what exactly happened, but the filmmakers say they want to make sure the whole story is told for the next generation.

Hummus is having its kale moment among local Cleveland foodies.  It’s been trending for several months now on two Facebook groups, where members have been raving about the homemade hummus they’ve found not at local restaurants or specialty markets, but at gas stations.  That’s right -- gas stations, like the Sunoco at the corner of Columbia and Sprague Roads in Olmsted Falls, where Rita DiCello gave the hummus sold there high marks.

Just hours before President Trump’s State of the Union called for big cuts in legal immigration and continuing crackdowns on undocumented immigrants, about a hundred people gathered across from Cleveland’s West Side Market to rally for immigrants and refugees.

The gathering included a phone call from a Youngstown businessman less than a day after his deportation to Jordan.

The federal monitoring team overseeing the police consent decree in Cleveland released its fourth progress report this week.

From a hashtag to a movement, #MeToo is generating conversations around the world.

It’s also inspiring artists here in Northeast Ohio.

Cleveland painter Laura Dumm decided to depict Venus, the goddess of love, as a #MeToo survivor. While she typically works collaboratively with her husband, Gary, on artwork critical of environmental and societal issues, it felt right to her to do this work independently.
