18 and over Clubs in Cleveland
CEO Hank Meijer told an grocery store industry crowd — fun bunch — earlier this year that Cleveland was the chain's next big market. At that time, he predicted that 8-10 stores might be coming to the region and that they'd open as early as 2018.
A spokesperson told Cleveland.com Tuesday that the superstores in Avon, Mentor and Stow would likely open in 2019. The Lorain and Bainbridge locations probably won't open until 2020. This latest push brings the total number of Ohio Meijer stores to 42. Each location employs between 250 and 300 people.
Recently, Meijer was recognized by Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) as a Champion of Opportunity for its commitment and leadership in integrating individuals with disabilities into Ohio’s workforce.
- The Toledo Strip is shown in red
It was just a mere 180 years ago on this day that some Michigan delegates met in Ann Arbor to finally cede claim to a strip of land called the "Toledo Strip" to help Michigan gain statehood.
The backstory: Ohio was already a state at this point and Michigan so badly wanted to become one (unfortunately). Michigan wanted the Toledo Strip because of it's proximity to Lake Erie — it was super resourceful and would be good for the economy. Ohio also wanted it.
Some poor map drawing put the Strip into question of which had the legitimate claim. When Michigan tried to become a state in 1833, Ohio said that they had to clearly define the border, which to Ohio meant not including the Toledo Strip. Neither side wanted to give in and the ensuing, continued disagreement led to militias from both states to occupy the space. Enter: the Toledo War (that no one died in).
Fast forward to 1836 and Congress offered Michigan a compromise. Ohio gets the Toledo strip and Michigan gets the Western part of the Upper Peninsula (they already had the Eastern portion). At the time it seemed like an awful trade because the U.P. was just a vast wilderness of nothing. One could argue that it still is, but it turns out, mass mineral deposits were found in the U.P., there was a ton of wood to be used during the logging boom, and it became a place of travel due to the views and sights.
This has been your obscure history update of the day.
Andre and Zac talk about the Cavs players staying home, where to even start fixing the Browns, why people would be planning an 0-16 parade and how easy it is to end up on Deadspin in the social media age. For those still clinging to the Cleveland Browns organization and legacy for wisdom, well, you should know better by now. This week, legendary Browns fullback and alleged serial domestic abuser Jim Brown showed up at Trump Tower to meet with the incoming president. He came away pleased.
"When he goes through what he went through to become the president, he got my admiration, " Brown told reporters yesterday. "No one gave him a chance." (In fact, untold numbers of Americans and foreign interests gave him a chance. He will likely be inaugurated as the nation's 45th president on Jan. 20.)
"I can't speak for [pastor Darrell Scott, from Cleveland Heights], but I fell in love with him, because he really talks about helping African-American, black people, and, uh, that's why I'm here, " Brown said. His sentiments echo Scott's thoughts during a sermon we attended last year.
Brown finds himself walking into the middle of the bizarre (and possibly criminal) fallout from the 2016 presidential election. He joined Trump at Trump Tower on the same day that Kanye West did. Nothing really makes any sense anymore.
Among several other statements from Brown: "People that go against the election are going against America.” It's unclear what he meant.Longtime Dancing With the Stars fan favorites who’ve garnered multiple Emmy Awards and mirror ball trophies, Julianne and Derek Hough recently starred in the Emmy Award-winning Grease: Live and Hairspray Live.
On Christmas morning, they’ll host ABC’s The Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration, which Julianne also executive produced.Initially, singer-drummer Emmett and his brother, singer-organist Cullen O’Connor, thought their locally based punk-y hi-fi organ band Archie and the Bunkers would be a bass and drums duo.
When that didn’t work out, they mixed things up, and Cullen switched from bass to organ.
“We tried bass and drums, and it sounded like crap, ” says Cullen, 15, one morning while sitting with his brother at the dining room table in his parents’ Rocky River home.Details are scarce, but Valley View police confirm that a man jumped off the I-480 overpass at 7:44 a.m. today.
