When it comes to competitors, McNulty believes the more, the merrier: “We’ve been working hard to grow the Ohio City Brewery District, and part of that process is collaborating, kind of mentoring, those interested in brewing in the neighborhood.”

Innerbelt Implosion Photo_BartonSchroeder

The Controlled Explosive Demolition of the old I-90 Innerbelt Bridge took place at 6:00 a.m. on July 12, and attracted crowds to Tremont for a view of the historic event. Barton Schroeder, retired math teacher and local photographic artist said, “We got really lucky. I got here at 5:15 a.m. and there were three people here who wanted a ride down. We parked, but they said, ‘No, you’ve got to move.’ We saw a line of cars and found a spot — right where this picture was taken — I just happened to put a new lens on my camera, and I’m sitting here all ready to go. It went ‘Boom!’” Schroeder snapped his photo in nearly the same instant. Two pieces of Schroeder’s Cleveland icon photo-based artwork are available for sale at Civilization.

This chilling statement was published April 27, 2003, on The Plain Dealer’s front page, under the headline “How safe are city’s nightclubs?  Fire crews patrol to avert repeat of recent tragedies.”  The article by Clint O’Connor followed then Lt. James Smith and Inspector Robert Grace of the Cleveland Fire Prevention Bureau as they performed fire inspections at one club after another. Continue reading
