The Experience
  • Marrying a Catholic priest
    Andy Netzel
    Though priests are mandated by the Roman Catholic Church to remain celibate and unmarried, Linda and Phil Marcin were called to marriage and wed in 1982. Linda’s husband was laicized, forbidding him from performing priestly duties. But since canon law says “once validly received, sacred ordination never becomes invalid,’’ Phil Marcin still performs baptisms, serves Holy Communion and completes other priestly duties when asked by everyday folks.
  • Anatomy of Heights High
    Cleveland Heights High’s small-schools concept hopes to stem an exodus of students from the district serving one of Greater Cleveland’s most integrated communities.

  • Silver Spoons: Lola's Back (And better than ever!)
    Greg MacLaren

    Laura Taxel

  • The Long Goodbye
    John Hyduk
    All his victims were people who had changed courses in life, seeking a second chance. Now, 25 years after Frank Spisak's serial murders terrified Cleveland State University, the death-row inmate gets a second chance at avoiding execution. In a courtroom, survivors and lawyers will return to 1982 and confront his crimes. A jury will decide his fate.
  • Make 'Regional' Real
