Scamfinder is a tool to learn about the most common scams against individuals and businesses. It is updated as new scams appear.

The site was compiled by Sheryl Harris, consumer affairs reporter for The Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper. It was designed by Felesia McDonald and William Neff.

You can read Sheryl's columns online. If you have a question about a scam or you suspect you were the victim of a scam you don't see in Scamfinder, e-mail Sheryl.

Wurlitzer Organs in NE Ohio

The Plain Dealer had a story on Wurlitzer organs on December 4. http://www.cleveland.com/plaindealer/stories/index.ssf?/base/cuyahoga/1228383050108270.xml&coll=2

It seemed very relevant after our meeting on November 25 with David Kennett.

There was also a sidebar that mentioned these local Wurlitzers:

Where they are....

During the silent-film era, movie houses were equipped with theater pipe organs - giant pneumatic contraptions that accompanied the action. They were usually Wurlitzers. Here are public places where the organs can be seen and heard:

Akron Civic Auditorium, Wurlitzer
Canton Palace Theatre, Kilgen
Grays Armory in Cleveland, Wurlitzer
Lorain Palace Theatre, Wurlitzer
Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland, Wurlitzer
Palace Theatre in Cleveland, Kimball
