Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Harrowing Heroin Death Numbers

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state said a record number of Ohioans died from heroin-related overdoses in 2012 as it released the newest available figures for a problem that's been called an epidemic and public health crisis.
 
   The Department of Health said 680 people died of heroin overdoses in 2012, up from 426 deaths in 2011, a 37 percent increase.
 
   The heroin increase also drove the overall number of fatal drug overdoses to a new record of 1,272 deaths in 2012, up from 1,154 the previous year.
 
   The state said Friday the number of fatal prescription painkiller overdoses decreased for the first time since 2003, a drop attributed to a statewide crack down on pill mills.
 
   Heroin addiction has been increasing as addicts turn to the cheaper and more readily available drug.

New Concord Native Appointed to State Chair

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Governor John Kasich has sworn in a former state budget director and lawmaker as Ohio's top utility regulator.
 
   The Republican governor swore in Thomas Johnson of Columbus as chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on Wednesday.
 
   Johnson replaces Todd Snitchler, who decided not to seek reappointment when his term expired April 10.
 
   Johnson is a New Concord native, who served in the Ohio House for 22 years. He was former Governor Bob Taft's budget director upon leaving the Legislature in 1999. He holds a bachelor's degree from Muskingum University.
 
   Snitchler has joined the business department at McDonald Hopkins, where he'll counsel clients on issues of energy policy and strategy, government affairs and regulatory matters.

Judge Issues Stay on Gay Marriage

 CINCINNATI (AP) - A federal judge has put on hold the majority of what attorneys have called a "momentous" change to Ohio's gay marriage law.
 
   Judge Timothy Black on Wednesday stayed his ruling ordering Ohio to recognize the marriages of gay couples who wed in other states.
 
   Black made an exception for the four couples who filed the February lawsuit that led to the court case, ordering Ohio to immediately list both spouses in each relationship as parents on their children's birth certificates.
 
   All other married gay couples in the state will see no immediate tangible expansion of their rights until an appeals court decides to uphold or overturn Black's ruling.
 
   That likely will take months.
 
   Black says implementing his ruling without knowing the appeal's outcome could cause confusion and potential inequity.
