In Medina County, the sheriff’s office is investigating a string of crimes apparently targeting the Amish community. Someone has been terrorizing Amish homes in the middle of the night, shattering windows by throwing objects like railroad spikes, rocks, and bottles into homes. 

News 5 reports that authorities have responded to 14 similar calls over the past few months, almost all of them taking place in the small Amish community in Homerville. So far no arrests have been made and authorities don’t have much to go on besides a dark colored sedan spotted near some of the homes, but Det. Larry Covey says whoever is responsible could be charged with a hate crime known as ethnic intimidation for the targeted attacks.

There is a lot of talk about Terry Francona possibly stepping down as manager of the Cleveland Guardians. Brian Dulik, sports writer for the Medina Gazette, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the possibility and what's next for the Guardians. They also discussed the Browns ahead of game one.

Springfield Teachers Prepare for a Possible Strike

Written by

A potential teachers strike is looming for the Springfield Local School district after the teachers union voted on August 28th to authorize a 10-day strike notice with negotiations on a new contract breaking down.

The Beacon Journal reports that the strike authorization vote by members of the Springfield Local Association of Classroom Teachers came after months of failed negotiations with the district administration that began back in May. 

In news release union spokesperson Beau Grubbs said that “As educators, each member of SLACT is deeply committed to the success of every student,” adding that “we believe that Superintendent Shelley Monachino and the Board of Education need to deliver a fair contract that addresses those issues which are impacting our students and our community."

Superintendent Monachino declined to comment on the negotiations noting that the bargaining process is confidential and it would be “inappropriate to disclose any of the specifics.”

In a letter to district parents, the SLACT highlighted teacher retention and the impact of larger class sizes on behavior as some of the challenges the district is facing. 

School administrators and the union negotiators are set to meet again, this time with the help of a federal mediator, on Wednesday at 5pm.
