CLEVELAND, Ohio-Community activists and other community affiliates will hold a vigil on Wednesday Nov. 28 at 5:30 pm at Kassouth Park in Cleveland at E. 121st St and Williams Ave near Shaker Blvd. to remember three-year-old Emilliano Terry (pictured), whose missing body was found by police in a waste treatment landfill in Oakwood Village on Monday. The boy was initially thought to have been missing from the Buckeye Ave. apartment in Cleveland where he lived with his 20-year-old mother and two young siblings.

Camilia Terry (pictured), whose cries for help were ignored by the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services, was arrested Monday and taken into custody in the connection with the death of her son. His lifeless body was recovered wrapped in a garbage bag. His mother allegedly told police that Emilliano vanished at Kassouth Park on Sunday.

"It breaks my heart," said Blaine Griffin, director of the Community Relations Board for the city of Cleveland, who led a community search team in hopes of finding young Emilliano with city employee James Box and Community Activist Khalid Samad

Camilia Terry's other two children, five months and five years old, are in the custody of  family and children services. She is in county jail waiting to be indicted likely on criminal charges by a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. She was an aspiring singer and had allegedly told children and family services officials that she was overburdened and wanted her three children put up for adoption.

COLUMBUS, Ohio- Former Democratic Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann (pictured), who beat Republican incumbent attorney general Betty Montgomery in a heated fight to win the seat in  2006 only to resign amid a sexual scandal in May of 2008 where he admitted having sex with a female employee, was issued a six month suspension by the Ohio Supreme Court of his law license last week.

It did not help that Ohio's high court has six Republicans out of seven, a venue considered a stronghold for the Ohio Republican Party.

Ohio State Senator Nina Turner calls for election reform in Ohio, takes on Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted in editorial to Plain Dealer

E-mail Print PDF

By Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner (D-25) as a guest columnist to the Plain Dealer Newspaper, Ohio's largest newspaper. A Cleveland Democrat, Turner is a former Cleveland Ward 1 councilwoman and one of two Black Ohio senators representing Cleveland constituents, among others. She represents Ohio's 25th legislative district and is contemplating a run in 2014 for Ohio Secretary of State against controversial Republican Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted. Though appointed at times, no Black Democrat has ever been elected to a statewide office in Ohio such as governor, auditor, attorney general, secretary of state or the Ohio Supreme Court.

CLEVELAND, Ohio-Elections, of course, create winners and losers. In every contest, one candidate, party or issue will come out on top. It is rare, however, that voters come as close as they did this year to getting the short end of the stick.

Occupy Cleveland members sentenced for plot to bomb Ohio bridge, some say it was a set up for fighting against illegal foreclosures in Cuyahoga County, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson had banned Occupy Cleveland from Public Square

E-mail Print PDF

By Kathy Wray Coleman, Publisher, Editor-n-Chief, Cleveland Urban News. Com and The Cleveland Urban News.Com Blog, Ohio's Most Read Online Black Newspaper

CLEVELAND, Ohio-Three young White men that were active in the Occupy Cleveland movement who previously pleaded guilty to plotting to bomb Route 82 bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in April in Sagamore Hills between Cleveland and Akron, Oh. with dummy explosives provided by an FBI informant were sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Court Judge David Dowd Jr. to prison terms below what prosecutors had requested.

Akron is a city some 35 miles south of Cleveland.

Brandon Baxter, 21, of Lakewood, Oh., was sentenced to 9 years and 9 months in prison and Connor Stephens, 21, of Berea, Oh., received an 8 year prison sentence.

Ring Leader Douglas White, 27, of Indianapolis, In., was handed a sentence of 11 and 1/2 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors had requested 19 to 30 years but Dowd, a federal district judge out of the Northern District of Ohio in Cleveland, opted for lesser time.

A fourth suspect, Anthony Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, has not yet been sentenced after pleading guilty in July and agreeing to help prosecutors.

Fifth suspect Joshua Safford, 23, of Cleveland, is undergoing psychiatric analysis and his case is still pending.

The guilty pleas earlier this year from those sentenced came after former pleas of not guilty and claims by defense attorneys, including Stephens defense attorney Terry Gilbert of Cleveland, that the men were victims of a sting by federal authorities at the hands of paid FBI informant Shaquille Azir, 39, who found them housing and fed them food and drugs.

That alleged sting, defense attorneys once said, was part of a conspiracy to ruin the thriving Occupy Cleveland movement. And that they did, say community activists.

"Protests are necessary but they need to be peaceful and non-violent," said Larry Bresler, a Cleveland community activist who leads Organize Ohio and the Northeast Ohio Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign. "And yes, I believe that this incident destroyed the Occupy Cleveland movement."

No protests, however, got violent in Cleveland, partly because of a Black mayor who grew up in the ghettos of Cleveland himself, and lives there now with his wife and other family members, and is skilled in dealing with community conflict, no matter how aggressive it might ultimately become.

Cleveland Browns lose to Dallas Cowboys in tale of two halves following overtime

E-mail Print PDF

By Cleveland Urban News.Com Sports Writer Karl Kimbrough

CLEVELAND, Ohio-The Cleveland Browns came back Sunday from a week off with a new attitude in playing against the Dallas Cowboys, a game that went into overtime, though the Browns lost 23-20.

In most of the first nine games of this season the Browns had been starting the game like first half doesn't count, being out scored going into halftime in practically every game.

But against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Cleveland had a 13 point lead at the end of the first half.

The Browns shutout Dallas in the first half,  and shut them down playing with a purpose, and with intensity not seen from them this year.
