A “Welcome Home LeBron Community Rally” will highlight several days of activities next month tied to LeBron James’ return to his native Akron as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The rally is set for Aug. 8 at InfoCision Stadium, with a tentative start time of 7:15 p.m. It will follow his foundation’s third annual Wheels for Education family event.

On Aug. 2 and Aug. 10, events tied to the LeBron James Family Foundation’s first PROMISE Project will be held.

Local businesses are coming together to help James, his Foundation and Nicole Curtis from HGTV’s Rehab Addict to renovate the home and yard of one of its Wheels for Education students. Yards at the homes of nine other Wheels for Education students also will be re-landscaped with the help of Akron businesses and volunteers.

More details of the events, including how the public can participate, will be released in coming days.

And so are you Dale.

he went to Miami to win a championship ring, which he deserved being what many believe to be the best current basketball player today... and as every athlete knows, every game could possibly be their last game, especially in Cleveland where they notoriously only have one good player on a team and expect that player to do everything , in every game, with no help from any other player. so he went to Miami where it was an actual TEAM with other good players and he did NOT have to carry the team alone.. OH and for Cleveland to bring in Shaq, 10 years past his prime was a slap in the face, at best.. so he won his rings.. and got his recognition, now he wants to come home and help raise his home team up to a championship if possible... that is a great man, and a very mature man.. it is sad that so many of the fans are still so petty and immature.


OH MY GOD will you ever shut up?

maybe you have not figured this out yet.. but everyone who posts on here goes by a name.. and it is clearly identified.. my name is Swiss family.. when you see that please do NOT read it.. it is obviously way over your head.. you want to read Mikes calendars posts.. and someone else who always talks about the bath house.. grab your Schlitz and your chaw, and spit can .. and pork rinds and settle in... my posts are not for you so please don't read them they only confuse them and I understand that.. really I do and I am not insulted by that.. you can also see the length of the post by looking at it.. I know your attention span is about 1 minute unless you are watching Honey Boo Boo and her gang, or the duck dynasty guys..so please .. stick to something you can handle and understand... coloring books, and such..OK


Your an angry little man dale, you really should seek some professional help. Now about your meaningless diatribes. You act like you are the smartest man in the room, but sadly your not. You are Norwalks own village idiot so stand proud dale, hold your chin up and except the fact we all laugh at you and your senseless dribble you post repeatedly on here. You attack people without provocation, if they don't agree with your twisted little mind. Now get out of mamas basement, lift your fat butt out of that beanbag chair put some pants on and get with reality.(don't forget to wash the cheeto residue off your hands as well). Have a great day dale and remember to be sure too keep your helmet on and drool rag at the ready.

hahahahahahahahahhahah who is an angry little man???? whhahahahahawho just wrote "meaningless diatribes???" who is acting like the "smartest man in the room>???????" hahahahahah I think you had better look at the reflection in your own mirror.... and see exactly who is the village idiot....hahahahahahaha I love it when people come on here and go off on someone telling them that they spend too much time on here.. how would they know that??? by spending too much time on here maybe????? bababababababahahahahahah


wow that was a masterpiece of literature if I ever saw one. You really need to see a shrink. Was your childhood unsatisfactory? Or maybe your family tree doesn't fork, causing your DNA to be damaged? Or visits by Uncle Schticky scarred you?

swiss family

One more thing ...Freespeech....you say that I act ike I am the smartest person in the room, but sadly I am not..... I never claimed to be. BUT I am smart enough to know that in that usage in the English language, the term "your" is wrong.. it should be "you're" abbreviated from "you are".. I am sure that is what you meant, but were just in a hurry to get your point across

Then when you say to stand proud, hold my chin up and "except" once again you have used the wrong word.. I hate it when that happens.. and that is coming from me, and I have already admitted to being NOT the smartest person in the room... the word you were looking for would have been "accept" you can look up the definition for yourself... and man I have heard teachers complain about how hard their jobs are and I didn't believe them... until you came along....geesh

Then you say that I attack people without provocation ( you mean kind of like you are doing now??????????????????????)UM USUALLY.. that is not true.. Usually I will strike back AFTER BI have been attacked and rarely will be the first to attack.. and USUALLY after the attack is over I will not be able to tell you later who it was that attacked, unless they have a long time history of attacking me... I don't normally keep track..but just like a mosquito, although, they are mildly bothersome, after awhile, enough is enough.................................................................and the rest of what you wrote just sounds like you went waaa waaa waaaa all the way home...


Boy you really are stupid, if you read what I typed the word your is used in the correct way. Sad little man you are. Unstable? I think so.

swiss family

OH grasshopper, it is you who is an idiot... in your sentences where you say that "you think that you are the smartest man in the room, but sadly, your not"....YOUR is NOT the correct word use there... IDIOT you are looking for the correct abbreviation or conjunction of the two words, you are which would then be ..."you're not".. it's not like everyone in the world doesn't know this.. just pick up any third grade language book and you will see where you made your mistake..........stupid??? yes that would be you... unstable.. yep, you again...lololol
