CLEVELAND - This edition of the ever-popular Eyewitness Newsreel contains a very familiar face, former Cuyahoga County sheriff Gerald McFaul.
It's March 23, 1981 and Bob Woods begins Newsreel with a clarification on a new garden and then onto McFaul.
Woods tells us it was ten years ago when McFaul, then a Cleveland city councilman, had his Cleveland home demolished and a new home put up in its place.
McFaul was the county's sheriff for 32 before retiring amid theft in office charges in 2009, in 2010, McFaul pleaded guilty.
The next item in our one-minute video tour is very strange and unique.
When someone wouldn't pay their car repair bill and didn't pick the car up, the shop owner's didn't get mad, they got even.
The Morris Miller Tire Company on Prospect Avenue in Cleveland had the car crushed into a block and turned into a desk, even including a copy of the bill, very cool.
And we close with a staple of Newsreel, wacky signs.
Outside the Gold Circle department store on Smith Road, A "Keep Right" sign with the arrow pointing left.
That's Eyeeeeeewitness Newsreel!
