:19 - Losing to Brandon Allen and the Denver Broncos is bad. But the Browns have now gone off the rails, from their receivers wearing the wrong cleats, their quarterback can’t hit the open players, and a defensive player threatens people on social media. Everything is fine though, right? Ray and Tony broke down the game, and did so later on in the podcast, as well.

8:11 - In more positive news, FirstEnergy will remain in downtown Akron through 2035, extending their original lease by a decade. President and CEO of FirstEnergy Chuck Jones joined Ray and assured the listeners of the company’s commitment to Akron.

14:27 - What if you became the CEO of McDonald’s? What would you do differently? I mean, besides having inappropriate relationships with employees.

17:07 - Back to the Browns. Ray and Tony touched on the lack of accountability in the locker room.

Most Deer-Car Crashes In November, Officials Warn

Written by

State officials are warning drivers to beware of deer, as November is typically the month with the most deer-related crashings in Ohio.

Governor Mike DeWine urging safe practices on state roadways, including reducing distracted driving, especially at dusk and dawn, when deer are most active.

See the full press release from the Ohio Department of Insurance below: 

COLUMBUS – Drivers should always stay alert, but that is especially true during November, the leading month for deer-vehicle crashes in Ohio. Last November nearly 3,800 incidents occurred on the state’s roadways. 

Governor Mike DeWine, Ohio State Highway Patrol Superintendent Colonel Richard S. Fambro and Ohio Department of Insurance Director Jillian Froment urge drivers to avoid distractions and use safe driving techniques. 

“The most deer-vehicle crashes happen in November,” Governor Mike DeWine said. "And we want to remind Ohioans to drive safely, making sure to scan the road ahead for deer, especially at dawn and dusk.”     

“Motorists must always be vigilant and ready to react to any situation,” Colonel Fambro said. “If you see a deer in the roadway, slow down, but do not swerve. If you strike a deer, move to a safe place, turn your hazard lights on and report the accident.” 

Deer are most active at dawn and dusk. Drivers should scan the road and shoulders ahead, and use high beams when there is no oncoming traffic. Experts also recommend conducting an insurance review.  

“It is essential to remain attentive when driving and avoiding distractions in order to keep you and your family safe,” Froment said. “It is also important to complete an insurance review and make sure you have adequate insurance in the event of an accident.” 

The optional comprehensive coverage (also known as “other than collision” coverage) portion of an auto insurance policy often is used to pay for deer-vehicle damage repair. Collision or liability-only policies do not cover the damage. Be certain to photograph or video any damage to support an insurance claim. 

A total of 18,200 deer-related crashes occurred last year across the state. The top counties where incidents occurred were Stark (486), Trumbull (428), Richland (426), Hancock (424), Williams (413), Wood (412), Clermont (380), Defiance (369), Lorain (367), and Hamilton (366). Cuyahoga and Franklin Counties experienced 285 and 232 incidents, respectively.

:19 - Remember the saga at the Philadelphia Starbucks from April 2018? Well, the lawsuits continue. The morning show panel discussed the situation, from the racial undertones to how everything was handled.

10:47 - It may be the day after Halloween, but it’s still the season, and it’s a topic near and dear to Tony heart: the Paul Lynde Halloween Special, which, of course, starred Paul Lynde, Margaret Hamilton, Betty White, Tim Conway, Pink Tuscadero from Happy Days, and a performance by Kiss!

20:55 - Time now for movies, and outside the new Terminator film, it’s admittedly a little light this week. Still, our movie guy Scott Wynn explains.

This week our 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the Week is Donovan Mills, a senior football player from Cuyahoga Falls High School.

Donovan says he came into football later on in his life, but has enjoyed every step along his journey. 
 
“I only started playing my freshman year, they let me develop, and I've been on varsity the last three years," he said.
 
He says that his head coach Shane Parker has been an influential person in his life on and off the field.
 
“He's been like a father figure to me," Mills said. "He pushes me on and off the field, and I'm just happy to play for him every Friday."
 
Coach Parker says Mills exemplifies what a Black Tiger is in all facets of being a student athlete. 
 
“He is a leader on and off the field, he is someone who embraces the chase every single day and isn’t afraid to do the work,” Parker said.
 
“His work ethic, moral fiber, and leadership abilities are uncanny and second to none. “
 
Away from the field, he’s involved in a mentoring program for kids at Silver Lake Elementary School, something he truly enjoys.
 
 
 
 Our next Female Student Athlete of the Week is Kaylie Ward, a senior soccer player from Cuyahoga Falls High School.
 
She says that the support from the student body and staff make being a Black Tiger student athlete something special.
 
“Everyone in the community, all the parents on the team, they just come around and support the team," she says.
 
This year on the pitch she garnered First Team All District honors, first team All Suburban League honors and was named a team captain. 
 
She said she enjoyed the camaraderie with her teammates over her time with the Falls.
 
“We're all just one family," she says. 
 
Her coach Greg Shoults talked about how she’s a leader in the classroom, on the field, and in the community.
 
“"Kaylie is a great leader for our team," he says.
 
"She trains hard and plays with tremendous intensity in games, she has played a huge role in the improved success of our team this past season."
 
Ward is a member of the Business Professionals of America, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Ineract Club.
 
Upon graduation in the spring, she plans on studying Sports Management at the University of Indianapolis in hopes of becoming an athletic director.
 
We wish Donovan and Kaylie the best in all of their future endeavors.

:19 - Ten years ago today, Ray had to leave this morning show early as his twins were about to be born. They were severely underweight and at high risk, and they had to remain in the hospital for nearly two months, but they finally came home and are now healthy and active 10 year olds. Ray reminisced over that day, and he thanked the folks at Summa for all of their help in the delivery process.

9:47 - It was bound to happen at some point, as NCAA players may be receiving a stipend for their likenesses being used. Ray, Tony, and Jeanne discussed this subject, which isn’t as cut-and-dry, black-and-white as many may think.

15:39 - Remember the days of actually walking into a store and buying something? Those days may soon be ending, as stores such as Walmart will turn into a form of drive thru service to pick up one’s items.

21:09 - Going trick-or-treating? If you’re in certain states, you are not allowed to dress as a person of the clergy.
