Another Bridgestone Senior Players championship is in the books, and unlike 2020, fans were welcomed back to Firestone Country Club, and braved the heat to check out some golf.

Don Padgett III is the executive director of the Bridgestone Senior Players, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to recap the weekend that was at the South Course. Padgett was pleased with the return of the crowds, and he thanked all the volunteers and charities who took part in the third Seniors tournament. Steve Stricker won the tournament over last year's winner, Jerry Kelly, after an interesting final round.

The contract for the Seniors tour is up after 2022, and Padgett says they hope to have it renewed and continue on, as next year's tournament is slated to begin July 6th, 2022.

Mansfield Police are asking the public's help finding a woman who was caught on cellphone video shooting into the air during an altercation in the city.

The incident happened Sunday, June 27th, at about 3:30 p.m. in the 300 block of Bulkley Avenue.

The video shows the woman firing two rounds from a semi-automatic pistol in the middle of a crowd of people.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Mansfield Police Department. 

After suffering a gruesome injury during Sunday's game in Minnesota, Indians Outfielder Josh Naylor is expected to miss significant time. 

Monday, the ball club updated the status of Naylor, saying he suffered a closed fracture and dislocation of the right ankle. 

In the fourth inning of the game against the Twins, Naylor was running in on a fly ball into the shallow outfield as Indians Second Baseman Ernie Clement was running out of the infield. The two players collided with Naylor coming down awkwardly on his right leg. 



The following is the full statement on Naylor's injury from the Indians:

Josh Naylor suffered a closed fracture and dislocation of the right ankle in Sunday’s loss at Minnesota.  The ankle was immediately reduced on the field and Josh was transported to a local hospital for full evaluation.  Josh remained in Minnesota overnight for pain management and will travel back to Cleveland today.  He will be evaluated at the Cleveland Clinic by foot/ankle specialist Dr. Mark Berkowitz later this week to determine the extent of the injury and timetable for operative intervention.  Head Athletic trainer James Quinlan accompanied Josh to the hospital and will travel back to Cleveland with him today.

The work from home trend has already changed office attire, culture, and routines. But, it could also have a profound effect on city budgets statewide, if an income tax-related bill now pending in the Ohio House is passed.

House Bill 157 would direct income taxes from people who work at home to the cities where they live, instead of where their company offices are located. It would also allow them to get a rebate on their 2021 income taxes.

Morning Show Host, Ray Horner talked to Akron Planning Director, Jason Segedy, about how much this might affect the City of Akron's finances, and their efforts to revitalize downtown Akron.
