CLEVELAND – Highway Patrol will be on high alert looking for suspected drunk drivers on St. Patrick’s Day. Last year, 142 arrests were made, but it was the first time no one died on Ohio roadways in five years.
“We want people to enjoy the celebration, but we encourage them to do so responsibly,” said Colonel Paul Pride.
The campaign this year is called, “Buzzed driving is Drunk Driving.” In 2013, about 500,000 people came to downtown Cleveland.
The public is being urged to use public transport. If you’re driving you’re urged to, “designate a sober driver,” Pride said.

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
