Greater Cleveland is adjusting to its new reality without a daily home-delivered Plain Dealer.

Many people's coffee and paper habits have to change. But how has the more digital New Cleveland Media Group delivered in its first week?

Ohio is one of 26 states defaulting on having insurance exchanges as part of the new Federal Health Care plan.

That means its Insurance Department is also doing nothing to publicize it, leaving it to federal programs, private groups and officeholders.

Should the state be playing an active role?

How well will people wishing to buy insurance from the exchange be informed?

Senator Sherrod Brown and his wife, writer Connie Schultz, are moving from their Avon homestead to a house in Cleveland's Mill Run development.

Will that have any political and practical impact for Cleveland?

Should officeholders be part of media events about traumatic community events?

Mayor Frank Jackson declined to be part of the event surrounding the demolition of Ariel Castro's house.

Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald delivered the walkoff remarks.

How do they walk the fine line between exploitive grandstanding and speaking for the community?

Tom Beres discusses these issues with Channel 3 Political Analysts Mary Anne Sharkey and Dennis Eckart on this edition of Between the Lines.
