Geronimo still needs a forever home; ‘Say Yes’ in Cleveland still needs mentors: Cheers & Jeers

CHEERS ... to all who’ve already said yes to become a College Now Greater Cleveland volunteer mentor, to ensure that as many as 900 “Say Yes” Cleveland high school seniors eligible for college tuition guarantees next fall have a mentor. College Now needs to recruit up to 25 new mentors per day between now and April 1; make yourself part of this amazing opportunity for Cleveland and its future. Sign up here. 

JEERS ... to the genius who thought a “Shoot the President”-themed nerf-gun-battle game was a good choice for kids’ parties -- or any kind of event -- at the Olmsted Performing Arts building in Berea. Baldwin Wallace University, which recently took over the building for a Community Arts Center, has deleted the game promo from the center’s website.

CHEERS ... to the Humane Society of Summit County for its ongoing efforts to give shelter dog Geronimo his forever home after the adoptive family of the formerly abused but friendly American Staffordshire-pit-bull-mastiff mix returned him Tuesday. The no-kill shelter rescued Geronimo more than three years ago, emaciated and freezing, from an outdoor crate in the snow. Interested in adopting? Call the shelter at (330) 487-0333.
