New school levy on hold in North Olmsted

A vote on a new school operating levy will wait until at least next year.

North Olmsted school board members were to consider July 22 putting a levy on the Nov. 3 ballot. No members responded, however, when board President Terry Groden asked three times if anyone wanted to make a motion to place an operating levy on the ballot.

Officials said afterward the district is likely to revisit the issue in 2021.

“There is a need for it,” Groden said. “It’s something that will come up again.”

Two women facing assault charges

Two women are facing felonious assault charges after police said they attacked and injured another woman after a disagreement at a party on a boat in the Cleveland Yachting Club Basin early July 19.

A hearing on the felonious assault charges has been set for Aug. 6 in Rocky River Municipal Court and a temporary protection order was issued prohibiting Christina Shockey, 30, of Cleveland, and Jessica Chaney, 28, of Olmsted Township, from going near the assault victim, a 28-year-old Fairview Park woman. The Fairview Park woman was treated for a concussion and broken facial bones after the two assaulted her at 1:30 a.m., said Lt. George Lichman of the Rocky River Police Department.

The injured woman said she was at a party with the two women on a boat called Problem Child and that she decided to leave because she and the two women were not getting along, Lichman said. She was walking away and calling a friend for a ride, when Shockey and Chaney attacked her, slamming her head into the ground, Lichman said.

Officers are still investigating what prompted the attack, Lichman said. No attorneys were listed for Shockey and Chaney in court records.
