Morning, everybody! I’m back with your fresh edition of the Lakewood Daily. Here are all the things you need to know about what’s happening in the community today.

First, today’s weather:

Clouds and breaks of sun. High: 81 Low: 70.

Here are the top stories today in Lakewood:

  1. The Lakewood Observer, a community paper written solely by the citizens of Lakewood, is celebrating its 17th year in print. The newspaper is the only community newspaper and has a staff of over 100 volunteers. Over the years many programs were born from the news source, like the Lakewood Earth And Food Group, Bike Lakewood, Lakewood Is Art (LPL Front Porch Concerts), MAMA, which became Uptown Lakewood and many more.

  2. Identical twins and St. Edward High School linemen Deontae and Devontae Armstrong have a competitive dynamic that has pushed them to become highly recognized football players and state champions last fall. The two brothers are part of the 2024 class and are already considering 12 college scholarships so far. Deontae and Devontae would love to play for the Buckeyes one day, but for now they continue to develop and push each other to be the best linemen they can be. (247Sports)
  3. Twenty-four-year-old Arnold Hoyle of Cleveland was killed and two people were wounded after shots were fired during a fireworks display on the city’s West Side, said police. Hoyle, who was shot in his hip area, died from his wounds at MetroHealth Medical Center, said the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office. A 21-year-old man was shot in the leg and a 26-year-old man was shot in both legs, said police. (Cleveland.com)

Are you a Lakewood resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.

Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called Masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
  • Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)

To learn more, visit Masterworks.io, where Lakewood Daily readers can skip the waitlist.
