Cleveland Councilwoman Fannie Lewis got a standing ovation at the screening of the film "No Umbrella - Election Day in the City," a documentary about problems at a Cleveland polling place in the 2004 election in which the fiery Lewis is the star. The film will be shown again tonight at 6 at City Hall.

Filmmaker Laura Paglin said she's thinking about making East Cleveland and Mayor Eric Brewer the subject of her next film, tentatively titled "City on the Brink." Brewer said he's flattered by the interest and willing to cooperate if it will help generate positive interest in East Cleveland.
