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.

Libertarian Candidate Denied

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court has denied a request from a Libertarian candidate who was seeking to force the state's elections chief to place his name on primary ballots.
   Last month, Secretary of State Jon Husted disqualified attorney general candidate Steven Linnabary from the May 6 ballot.  Linnabary's nominating petitions were successfully challenged on two grounds: that a signature gatherer failed to comply with Ohio law requiring that he be either Libertarian or politically independent and another requirement that he disclose his employer.
   Linnabary's attorneys said the man who protested the petitions lacked the standing to do so. They also argued that the state law does not require certain petition circulators to disclose employment because they are independent contractors.
   The high court said Thursday that Husted reasonably interpreted the law.

Potential Landmark Gay Marriage Ruling

CINCINNATI (AP) - Civil rights attorneys are arguing that a federal judge should prohibit Ohio officials from enforcing the state's ban on gay marriage.
   The attorneys will deliver closing arguments in the matter Friday before federal Judge Timothy Black in Cincinnati.
   Their request goes far beyond their original and narrow February lawsuit asking Black to force Ohio to recognize gay marriage on birth certificates.
   They're now asking Black for a ruling that would effectively strike down the state's gay marriage ban, passed by voters in 2004.
   Attorneys for the state argue Ohio has a sovereign right to ban gay marriage and has the right to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages legally performed in other states.
   In a limited ruling in December, Black ordered Ohio to recognize gay marriage on death certificates.

Silencer Bill Goes to Senate

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Hunters could use silencers on their guns while hunting certain game under a proposal that passed the Ohio House.
   Representatives voted 73-14 to pass the bill Wednesday. The Senate still must consider the measure.
   A House committee approved the bill last month with bipartisan support after lawmakers examined the devices and listened to silenced and unsilenced weapons.
   The bill would allow licensed Ohio hunters to use the silencers while hunting certain birds and other wild game, including squirrels, rabbits and deer. Only those authorized under state and federal laws could use the suppressor, which must be properly registered.
   Supporters of the devices say they protect hunters' hearing, make field commands easier to hear and reduce disruptions to neighbors. Opponents say quieter weapons are less safe and easier to use illegally.

Shots Fired at Kent State, Suspect Caught

KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State University says a person suspected of firing a gun on campus has been apprehended, and there's no longer a threat to anyone at the school.
   Campus police say the suspect is in custody at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna.
   The university posted a notice about the capture on its Twitter page late Wednesday night.
   A Kent State spokeswoman says the male suspect fired the shot into the ground around 9 p.m. Wednesday near the Bowman Hall academic building.
   No injuries were reported.
   The university initially advised people across campus to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was believe to be carrying a silver handgun.
   The campus was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guard members during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.
