WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – A Columbus woman was arrested February 25 on an outstanding warrant by the Cleveland police for hoaxing co-workers back in 2010.
Jillian Knight, 34, informed co-workers that her son, Ryan, was diagnosed with a deadly type of lung cancer and would require special treatment. Over time, Knight expressed to her fellow employees about her son’s deteriorating condition.
Knight’s co-workers at Steak and Stone in Willoughby organized a fundraiser to help pay for Ryan’s medical bills.
A local tavern in Wickliffe held in the event in May 2010. More than $2,100 in donation were raised.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
