Tremont Wind Downs Tree on W 11th, Light Pole and Wires Still Sparking

A special report by The Tremonster

Residents and the Cleveland Fire Department watch a downed tree, light pole, and sparking power line on W 11th Street on Tuesday night at 12:15 pm.  Cleveland Police and Fire Departments responded to calls at around 9:45 pm, but are still waiting for power company line workers who have been stretched thin by damage from severe storms.


CEI/FirstEnergy/The Illuminating Co has arrived to clean up their draped wires, closed driveways and sidewalks, and fix the issues keeping their Tremont customers away from their homes for over 36 hours.  CPP’s side of W 11th was back up and running the morning after the storm.

“It’s a standard eviction,” said probate attorney, James Wagner.  Wagner was standing on the street watching the eviction process near the chest-high pile of Paul Dlugos belongings covering the tree lawn in front of 3155 W. 11th Street.  “It’s not so standard, obviously, but…”

According to Wagner, “Paul was the administrator of the estate, but the court removed him.  The court removed him because he didn’t post the bond and he lied to the court about who the heirs are — he filed an application saying there’s no heirs.  There’s five other heirs; family members.  They’re all family members.  Just go to the probate court docket, and search under Karol Dlugos.  It’s all in the docket.  It’s all in the docket.”

Here is a link to the full Cuyahoga County Probate Court docket found under the name Karol Dlugos of 3155 W. 11th Street, including document PDFs.  It is case number 2015EST206731, titled, “THE ESTATE OF KAROL DLUGOS.”  Below is a reprint of the docket dates and descriptions without PDFs.

Lifelong Tremont Resident, Paul Dlugos, Evicted from Late Father’s W. 11 St. Home


Evicted along with Paul Dlugos was his late father’s 12-year-old dog, causing concern that the dog is now roaming the street in distress.

This report was submitted by Henry Senyak earlier this evening:

Today is a very sad day in Tremont. lifelong Tremont resident Paul Dlugos was evicted from his late father’s West 11th St. home. If many remember, in late 2014, his father, Karol Dlugos, died on the sidewalk near Merrick House. Paul took care of his father’s needs. Karol did not have a will; Paul has brothers and sisters in Europe; he had a relative who filed court papers striping Paul as Court Appointed Executor, which has now led to his eviction.
We all see Paul every day, riding his bike in his hoodie — even in 90 degree weather — in the Lincoln Park area. I went to High School with Paul and graduated with him in 1981 from Cleveland Central Catholic. Continue reading
