The white cylinder in the center of the photo is a time capsule. The Cleveland Municipal Court is celebrating its centennial this year and in doing so, the Court is collecting bits and piece of information to place in the capsule, which will be opened in 2112, 100 years from now.  A program listing the winners of the 2012 Mock Trial will go into the time capsule.
