  • Last Man Standing
    Erick Trickey
    After 14 years as Cuyahoga County prosecutor, Bill Mason stepped down this fall to enter private practice. He leaves behind a dual reputation as a tough lawman and a savvy machine politician. He helped usher in county reform. Yet as he left office, critics asked why he failed to see the old guard's corruption.

  • Daffy Dan Gray on ... The Cleveland T-shirt

  • Drew Carey
    In 1994, we traveled to Los Angeles to hang out with Cleveland's most famous comedic export since Bob Hope. Our profile ran 15 months before a little thing called The Drew Carey Show premiered on Sept. 13, 1995.
  • Hanford Dixon on ... The Dawg Pound
  • John Gorman on ... Springsteen at the Agora
    On Aug. 9, 1978, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band played the Agora in a performance broadcast live on WMMS. It has since become the most famous Springsteen bootleg of all time. The show was part of a free small-club tour Columbia Records hoped would revive The Boss' fame, after it began to fade following Born to Run. The man who made WMMS into an FM rock giant, John Gorman, brought Springsteen to town for that show and was in the audience.
  • Mike Hargrove on ... The 1995 Indians
    Hargrove, who won 721 games as manager of the Indians from 1991-1999, led the team to a 100-44 record in 1995 and the team's first World Series appearance since 1954. The Tribe clinched the division title with a 3-2 win against the Baltimore Orioles on Sept. 8 in front of 41,656 fans.

  • Our Two-Newspaper Town
    When the Cleveland Press printed its last edition in 1982, a little part of the city died, too. Maybe nobody knows this better than Dick Feagler, who worked at the Press before becoming part of our staff. He offered a lengthy obituary for the paper in our August 1982 issue.

    Interview by Amber Matheson

  • The Flats
    Interviews by Colleen Smitek
    In 1996, Cleveland was on a roll and the riverfront — particularly Shooters on the Water — was the place to revel during the city's bicentennial. The Flats' heyday has been over for more than a decade now. But this spring, the East Bank of the Flats will begin to re-emerge as a new waterfront neighborhood.
  • The Reinvention of University Circle
    Erick Trickey
    Ever since our second issue in May 1972, we've been writing about University Circle's efforts to become "a place with people, with commerce, with culture, with education, with jobs." Cleveland's second downtown has been reshaped and transformed in the last decade. Here are some of its biggest cultural leaps forward. 
  • The River Cleanup
    The river fire may be the big joke, but it got the nation serious about the environment. Congressman Louis Stokes recalled the work that went into the Clean Water Act of 1972 for a story we wrote in 2009 marking the 40th anniversary of the fire.
  • Things We’d Rather Forget
