Key Headlines of June 4 - June 9, 2024

However you get your news, here are a few stories that stood out in local, state, federal and international news.


  • Coventry PEACE campus, located at 2843 Washington Blvd in Cleveland Heights, is a collaborative center for local artists.

  • The campus’s landlord, Heights Libraries, will start curtailing its normal 18-month lease to a month-to-month agreement in 2025.

  • The artists contend it is difficult to apply for grants and projects in a month-to-month lease, since funders do not know if the artists will have the space to complete the projects.

  • Heights Libraries purchased the PEACE campus for $1 in 2017.

  • According to a statement from PEACE’s board, "This could mean relocating the approximately 40+ artists that work in their spaces, who all have spent money and resources outfitting their studios" in the past couple of years.



  • The study was run by AH Datalytics, a data analytics firm.

  • The story was also covered in an earlier podcast by Ideastream’s Sound of Ideas.

  • Interestingly enough, even as Cleveland Police officer numbers have declined, so have city murder rates.



  • Individuals can now give $3,000 and political action committees (PACs) can give up to $6,000 for city council members.

  • In the last Council meeting until mid-July, three members – Charles Slife, Rebecca Maurer and Jenny Spencer – voted against it, while the remaining 14 voted in favor.

  • At present, Cuyahoga County government has no limit on individual donor amounts.

  • Days after Cleveland City Council doubled its campaign finance limits, Council President Blaine Griffin hosted a fundraiser in Little Italy.

  • Mayor Bibb ratified the law, but did not sign it. This is believed to demonstrate his lack of enthusiasm or endorsement for the new measure. The Mayor can raise $5,000 from individuals and $7,500 from PACs.



  • Cuyahoga County’s Solar for Schools program will provide $100,000, the U.S. Department of Energy is supplying Block Grants and a local green bank operated by Growth Opportunity Partners is providing forgivable loans of $50,000 per school district to school systems in East Cleveland, Maple Heights, Euclid, Cuyahoga Heights, and one other district yet to be named.

  • It’s expected the school districts will own their own panels, will be able to take advantage of tax credits, and will recover their upfront expenditures in four to six years.

  • One vendor will be selected to service all five school districts.

  • Installation should begin later in 2024.



NBA & NHL Finals Started This Week

  • In the NHL, the Florida Panthers are taking on the Edmonton Oilers for the Stanley Cup.

  • Florida has never won the Stanley Cup, while Edmonton has won it five times, the last time being 34 years ago.

  • Florida currently holds a 1-0 lead in the series; the two teams are squaring off in Florida at this moment.

  • In the NBA, the Boston Celtics (17 championships) hold a 2-0 series lead over the Dallas Mavericks (1 championship). The third game in the series will be held in Dallas this Wednesday at 8:30pm.
