Prisoner escapes from ambulance on I-71, isn't found

The Ohio Highway Patrol and Medina County Sheriff's Office spent Monday night and early Tuesday morning searching for a man who jumped out of a moving ambulance on Interstate 71.

As of Tuesday afternoon, law enforcement officers still were looking for 20-year-old Quentin Crossan. His residence was not disclosed.

Sgt. Alan Dunbar of the patrol's Medina post said Crossan was being transported to a facility via private ambulance when about 11:30 p.m. he jumped out of the back of the moving vehicle that was traveling south on I-71 in Harrisville Township.

The ambulance was traveling 50 mph when Crossan jumped out and fled on foot, Dunbar said, noting Crossan probably suffered injuries because of the rate of speed the vehicle was traveling.

Medina to renovate Memorial Park pool

Medina City Council has taken the plunge and will renovate the outdoor pool at Memorial Park  in time for next year's summer swimming season.

Council voted 5-2 tonight to proceed with the $664,000 pool and pool house renovation. Council President John Coyne and Councilman-at-Large Paul Rose voted against entering into contracts with two companies that would be involved in the project.

Last Monday, the city received a bid of $561,339 from Astro Pool Co. Inc. of Mansfield to renovate the pool, which was built in 1955 and closed after the summer of 2012.

Additional pool projects including the installation of a family restroom and outdoor shower, as well as replacement of the boiler, exterior siding and flooring, will be bid under separate contracts later. Those projects are estimated to cost another $65,000.

Wadsworth man gets 18 years for killing co-worker

A developmentally disabled man was sentenced to 18 years in prison July 19 for assaulting a coworker at their workplace last year who later died.

Kevin Udell, 36, of Wadsworth, pleaded guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter, a first-degree felony and kidnapping, a second-degree felony.

The charges and sentence are the result of an Oct. 2, 2015 incident when Udell pushed William Aston, 61, off a loading dock by grabbing his walker and pushing him backwards. Aston hit his head on the ground and was taken to the hospital. He died Oct. 8 when his family removed him from life support.

Brunswick toddler killed in condo parking lot

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Brunswick Division of Police are still working to determine whether charges will be filed against a motorist who allegedly ran over and killed a toddler in the Oxford Heights Condominium complex this past weekend.

Brunswick Police Lt. Brian Ohlin said the case is currently being reviewed for possible charges by the Medina County Prosecutors Office.

The fatal incident took place around 4 p.m. July 16 in the 4200 block of Bennington Boulevard.

Police said the child, 17-month-old Christian Moldovan Jr., allegedly escaped from his mother, Reanna Lisi, and ran out into the parking lot where he was struck and killed by the driver of a black minivan.

To date, no charges have been filed against the driver, 59-year-old Karen Konrad, of Kingsbury Road.

The mother and son had allegedly moved into the complex with the boy's grandmother, the day prior to the incident.

The boy's father, Christian Moldovan Sr., passed away in December.

Pokemon Go a phenomenon in Medina, world

For Daman Van Steenis, the Pokemon Go phenomenon is a family affair.

The 24-year-old from Brunswick has been playing the augmented reality mobile phone game with his wife and five-year-old daughter since its release earlier this month.

The family was hanging out in Medina's Uptown Park  Monday evening, circling the square with friend Anthony Freeman looking for virtual Pokemon to add to their collections.

They weren't alone. About 50 other people were in and around the park known for its old-time gazebo, playing the newfangled game on their 21st century smart phones.

Once again it's an action packed weekend in Medina County!  Both Lodi and Seville will be celebrating this weekend with parades and festivals in both places.  Check out the specific information down below.

The Pokemon Go craze is alive and well in Medina's Square as well as elsewhere throughout the county.  I've got to say, it appears to me to be one of the most community promoting things I've seen in a long time!  Best of luck, hunters!  Just remember to keep your head up once in awhile!  *L* 

It was pointed out to me that last week's quote was by Audrey Hepburn, not Katherine. 

I did venture downtown to the Republican National Convention this week and it was people watching at its best!  I did run into Nancy Abbot, Sharon Ray and Jim Renacci there!  Imagine that!  *L*  Enjoy your week!
