Cleveland police are preparing to hand over Jimmy Lee Tayse, the suspected dirtbag who kidnapped and raped a Fox Chapel woman at the Waterworks Mall on Saturday, April 7. The PG 's story by Cindi Lash and Jonathan Silver includes a brief exchange with the victim's mother-in-law.

Todd Hollis, a former lawyer in East Liberty, sued the operator of the web site www.dontdatehimgirl.com for defamation. Several anonymous women had posted critical remarks to the site regarding Mr. Hollis' "uncleanliness" and sexual impropriety. Yesterday, an Allegheny County judge threw out the suit, stating that it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction. If you'd like to read the allegations supposedly written by Mr. Hollis' concubines, click here. [Image credit: Action Sports Int'l. Published in the Post-Gazette]

The sonorous voice of KDKA TV has died. George Eisenhauer was the creamy baritone voice heard announcing KDKA newscasts, holiday sales at Horne's, and produce specials at Giant Eagle. If you're under 30, you probably never saw his face, but you know his voice. Hear him intone the beginning of the Eyewitness News at the 45-second spot in this KDKA news clip on You Tube.

Note on the broadcast. The KDKA intro includes that nifty flight through the bottom of the 2 for KDKA. Also of interest, a 1970's era fountain featuring steel figurines holding hands is also featured in the intro, in its original location in front of the Cathedral at the corner of Highland and Penn. Its current location is to the rear of the church, in front of the Carnegie Library on Kirkwood at Baum... Fascinating.

Could you please provide photographic evidence of the fountain location circa 1970s v. today? I'm skeptical.
