Transparency Takes Center Stage

Written by

   CINCINNATI (AP) - While Ohio law calls for government that is open to the public, shadowy decision-making has led to recent court battles and a legislative effort to shed more light.
   So-called "Sunshine Laws" being highlighted across the nation this week go back decades in promoting access to governments and their records. Ohio's Open Meetings Act declares that public bodies should take actions in meetings open to the public. Some exceptions are allowed, but disputes continue.
   A Warren County judge ruled this month against township trustees meeting informally to discuss upcoming agenda items. Newspapers have challenged school boards, city councils and universities for secretive decision-making around the state.
   Legislation by state Sen. Shannon Jones is meant to close loopholes. The Springboro Republican says the public has more trust in government that is open.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Famously reclusive "Calvin and Hobbes" cartoonist Bill Watterson is speaking out on the occasion of an exhibit of his work opening at the cartoon library and museum at Ohio State University.
   Watterson, an Ohio native, has granted few interviews since retiring his hugely popular "Calvin and Hobbes" strip in 1995. Recently he agreed to answer some questions from Jenny Robb, the curator at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. 
The museum released a transcript Thursday, and parts were published by The Columbus Dispatch.
   Watterson says declining newspaper readership could keep people from building a relationship with new comics as readers did with "Calvin and Hobbes" which, at its peak, ran in 2,400 papers worldwide.
   The exhibit opens Saturday.
