Mike White, horse whisperer? He's largely flown under the radar since leaving office in January 2002, but the former Cleveland mayor's post-political life was recently splashed across A-1 of Tuscarawas County's daily newspaper, The Times-Reporterú All that business about White and his wife, JoAnn, retiring to Newcomerstown, Ohio, to raise alpacas is true. But they also care for abused and unwanted horses by way of the Seven Pines Foundation, a nonprofit organization the couple founded in December 2002.
