The Veteran’s Treatment Docket is a specialized docket that works within the Cleveland Municipal Court. It is intended to serve active-duty military service members and veterans who have become involved with the court. In recognition that many veterans return to civilian life with physical and mental trauma, the court takes the responsibility for ensuring that veterans receive the treatment they need. The program provides the veterans with a mentor to support their success along the way and a “boot camp” event was recently held at the Westin Hotel to kick off the training process.


Earl B. Turner, who is the Clerk of the Cleveland Municipal Court, recently brought his staff back to La Sagrada Familia Church for the “In the Neighborhood” with Muni Court event which laid the ground work for men and woman to begin to wipe their criminal records clean of traffic violations, and non-violent misdemeanor offenses.


Ward 7 Councilman T.J. Dow was joined by members of the community and the Hough Development Corporation for a free breakfast honoring the ongoing legacy of Ward 7 and the various contributions made by its residents.


Clevelanders recently laced up their sneakers for the 9th Annual Slavic Village Pierogi Dash 5k run and fun walk, sponsored by Slavic Village Development, Third Federal Savings and Dick’s Sporting Goods. The race kicked off with lively polka performances and runners were rewarded at the finish line with pierogis and smokies.


If you’re headed Downtown to check out any of these events, or to simply get to work, be aware that resurfacing of West 3rd Street from Superior to Lakeside Avenue is underway. During this project one Northbound and Southbound lane of traffic will be maintained. There will be a second phase to this project that will be announced soon. You will still be able to access all businesses and residences, but on-street parking is not permitted. Both phases are scheduled to be complete by the middle of August.


It is starting to warm up little by little and there are plenty of fun events to attend and activities to do! Make sure to visit our TV20 Blog and Bulletin Board for updates.


Summertime is the perfect time to bring your lunch outside and we went to the best place for you to do so.
