Written by

For the first edition of Know Your Prospect for 2018, we took a trip out to California to catch up with  Coach Jaime Ortiz (San Clemente HS)  to talk about former USC and San Clemente QB Sam Darnold. 


Some two weeks after the settlement with Nexus, some residents of Green are none too please with their city’s response.

Green mayor Gerard Neugebauer joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to address his residents’ concerns. Ultimately, Neugebauer said the initial goal was to move the pipeline out of town, and because that could not happen, he is disappointed with the outcome. However, he says the city’s mission now is to work with Nexus to make the pipe safe for everyone.

Originally, the pipe was supposed to travel six-and-a-half miles through the city. The pushback on Nexus caused the pipe to be extended to eight miles, but through a more rural area to the south than what was initially planned. The mayor says if any residents see anything suspicious with the pipeline, they should call (330) 896-6930 to report what they have witnessed.

AUDIO: James Nice Proclaims Innocence In Statement

Written by
In August 2017, then-Akron police chief James Nice was asked to resign from his post after accusations of racism and inappropriate workplace behavior became public. Now, Nice had his police certificate relinquished after pleading guilty over the unauthorized use of a police database.

Nice joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to read a prepared statement in response to what has been said and written about him over the last six months. In the statement, he believes these allegations against him are “simply not true,” and they have caused him “great economic and emotion harm" over the damage to his reputation.

Due to the litigation, Nice could not divulge much information at this time, but he says he will continue to "seek justice."
