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.

Animal Shelter Reopens

HEATH, Ohio (AP) - Officials are ready to reopen a central Ohio animal shelter that closed after a litter of puppies contracted a contagious viral disease and died.
 
   The Licking County Humane Society closed to the public in early March to quarantine and clean the facility in Heath to rid it of any traces of parvovirus.
 
   It says no more animals showed symptoms or tested positive for the virus since the initial outbreak.
 
   The disease spreads through animal waste and direct contact between dogs. It can create intestinal and heart problems for the animals.
 
   The shelter says it will reopen Monday. To celebrate the reopening on St. Patrick's Day, it plans to offer drastically reduced adoption fees that day for dogs and cats that have been awaiting permanent homes for at least three months.

Smoke Stack Settlement

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - A lawsuit over who had to pay for damages resulting from the botched demolition of a smoke stack at a western Ohio power plant has been settled.
 
   The trial involving FirstEnergy and contractors accused of negligence in the botched demolition of the closed power plant's stack in Springfield was scheduled to begin Monday, but officials say it's been resolved.
 
   FirstEnergy, and its sister company Ohio Edison, filed a lawsuit in November 2013, two years after the 275-foot smokestack tumbled the wrong direction during its demolition by explosives.
 
   It fell onto two turbine generators used by the energy company, causing damage the lawsuit claims amounted to more than $19 million.
 
   Details of the settlement between the utility and three contractors aren't being made public.

NORWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter is scheduled to be in southwest Ohio on April 1 for a book-signing event.

Carter will be at the Joseph-Beth Booksellers in the Cincinnati suburb of Norwood. The book set for release later this month by publisher Simon & Schuster is titled: "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power."

The 39th president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate has written books ranging from his memoirs to focusing on international issues. This book is about discrimination and human rights abuses against women and girls around the world.

The 89-year-old Georgia native will also discuss his book at the event.

Ohio AG released from hospital

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has been released from a Cincinnati hospital where he spent the night after feeling ill while at a speaking engagement.

A DeWine spokeswoman says he is feeling much better Saturday after what was described as a bout of vertigo Friday afternoon.

The 67-year-old attorney general and longtime Ohio public figure was at a "First Friday" luncheon of business and public policy leaders when he felt ill before his scheduled talk. An ambulance took him from a downtown restaurant near Fountain Square to The Christ Hospital for evaluation.

Spokeswoman Lisa Hackley says DeWine is on his way home to Cedarville and is expected to resume a normal schedule next week.
