TWDC Board Calls for Sulzer’s Reinstatement
A special report by The Tremonster
Commander Sulzer has resigned from his position as Commander of the Second District.
Details are not easy to come by, but many Tremonsters, Tremont West Development Corporation, and its board have expressed great support for him and anger at what seems an unnecessary loss of this particular Commander, who worked so hard to build relationships within our community, and to maintain the trust so desperately needed between our neighbors and the Cleveland Police.
The board of directors of Tremont West approved the following call for Commander Sulzer’s reinstatement:
Attention Flats Motorists: On Wednesday, March 26, W 3rd Street will be closed under I-90 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. as bridge deck demolition takes place overhead. Motorists will be detoured via Harrison, W 4th, and Central Avenue.
This closure had previously been scheduled for Tuesday, March 25 but that operation has been canceled. Instead, be on the look-out as flaggers direct traffic on Canal Road Tuesday!

Emily Miller and I brought Yoga Rocks the Park (YRP) to CLE in 2012, and at that time CLE became the 6th city to have a YRP. As far as costs go, we charge $15 for a ticket which includes a 75-minute yoga class with live music. This fee goes towards maintaining and growing the event in our city. Our mission is to bring yoga to as many people in not only the Cleveland Community, but to communities across the U.S. which each locally managed and supported event (we are now in 20 cities across the U.S.) We have always maintained this policy: If someone comes to the event and can’t afford the $15 we would ask if they can make a donation, and if they can’t they would still be able to join in for FREE. Our kids yoga program, Camp YRP in Cleveland is FREE.
“No one would be turned away that can’t afford this yoga practice.” -Andrew Holland

Tremont Montessori Principal Heather Grant decided several years ago that the school had to live up to its billing. If not, she would recommend that Cleveland Metropolitan School District leaders drop Montessori from the name or maybe even shut down the building.
The school was innovative before innovation turned into a hot topic in the District, but over the years Montessori had become a label with little meaning. Many teachers weren’t certified in the method, and Grant was blunt: The school had to be “authentic.”
“I told them in some very real moments, the name may be Tremont Montessori, but I need to see, feel and touch Montessori when I’m in here,” Grant said. “This school has to be different from any other CMSD school.”
A committed faculty started moving to earn their Montessori credentials, but The Cleveland Plan for reforming the city’s schools and the flexibility provided by a new teachers union contract removed all doubt. Teachers have to get the training, Grant said, or they can’t work at the school. Continue reading
