Written by

Greg McNeil from Cover2 Resources hopes test strips that detect fentanyl in heroin will soon be as available as Narcan and needle exchanges.

Inspired by a similar program in New York City, McNeil is working with the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County to implement a pilot program in the Cleveland area. The strips, which cost around $1, only detect fentanyl but a similar strip to detect carfentanil is in the works.

McNeil joined Jasen to talk about the program.

AUDIO: John Michael On Cavs GM Search

Written by
Exactly one year after the Cleveland Cavaliers hoisted up the Larry O’Brien trophy, the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the lookout for a new general manager. David Griffin, the now-former GM of the Cavs, has parted ways with the organization, eleven days before his contract was to expire.

What is next? Who is next? Why did this happen? John Michael, the radio voice of the Cavs, answered some of those questions on the Ray Horner Morning Show. Michael admitted the timing of this parting of ways was a bit puzzling, since the NBA Draft and free agency are right around the corner. As far as a replacement, Michael believes a new GM could be named “sooner rather than later.”

Back to Griffin, Michael felt the former Cavs executive was a “player’s GM” who stressed team chemistry. Griffin helped transform the team in just three short years through the acquisitions of JR Smith, Iman Shumpert, Timofey Mozgov, and others. Michael also thought Griffin did a good job based on the little flexibility the team had.

Akron Public Schools Athletic Director Joe Vassalotti spoke with Brad Russell Monday to shed some insight into the team colors and nickname for Kenmore/Garfield High School.

The school will be housed in a new location down the road, but for now the Kenmore/Garfield Golden Rams will be located on 13th Street SW in Akron.
