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.

Captain Foligno


   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Nick Foligno served as a captain for the NHL All-Star Game in Columbus. Now he'll wear the "C" for the Blue Jackets.
   The 27-year-old Foligno was announced Wednesday as the club's first captain in almost three years. None was selected after the Blue Jackets dealt Rick Nash to the New York Rangers in July 2012.
   Foligno, acquired not long after that traded in a deal with Ottawa, is coming off the best season of his career with personal bests of 31 goals, 42 assists and 73 points. He was a captain in the All-Star Game in January, played on the Blue Jackets' home ice.
   He was an easy choice as an outspoken player with an edge who is active in the community.

Bengals Hook Fisher

  CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals signed offensive tackle Jake Fisher of Oregon on Wednesday, leaving only two draft picks without contracts.
   Fisher was the Bengals' second-round pick. He's expected to fill a backup role on the line this season and could move into a bigger role next year. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right tackle Andre Smith are in the final years of their contracts.
   The Bengals also took an offensive tackle with their first-round pick, Cedric Ogbuehi of Texas A&M. He's recovering from reconstructive knee surgery and won't be ready for the start of training camp.
   Ogbuehi and tight end Tyler Kroft - a third-rounder from Rutgers - are the only Bengals draft picks left without deals. Seven others have signed.

New Concord native says believing in God, evolution not mutually exculsive


Zanesville native crafted bronze likeness of famed Ohio inventor

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio House has approved a bill aimed at saving money and the amount of time some inmates spend in jail before sentencing.

The bill makes the preparation of a presentence report optional if both the prosecution and defense agree.

Co-sponsor Greta Johnson, an Akron Democrat, says preparing a report can cost up to $800 and take three to six weeks, during which time an offender is often still in jail.

The bill passed by the House Tuesday and now headed to the Senate eliminates that requirement when an offender will be sentenced to some type of probation rather than prison time, though a judge can still order it.

The Ohio Supreme Court has called presentence investigations in felony cases not involving prison "excessive and unwarranted."
