Fall Hopes Look Promising for Republicans

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio has more Democratic than Republican voters, but is headed toward another rock-solid Republican majority in Congress this fall.

The bellwether state provides one of the clearest examples in the nation of how congressional districts drawn after the 2010 Census using a combination of geography and gerrymandering gave Republicans a 33-seat majority despite heavy voting losses.

The four of Ohio's 16 districts held by Democrats are more heavily uninsured, poor and black than Republican districts. The dozen districts controlled by Republicans are on average wealthier and predominantly white.

Observers say politicians representing strongly partisan districts are less likely to listen to voices outside their parties, including independents, than those holding closely divided districts.

Ohio's Republican chairman says GOP leaders who controlled the process followed laws preserving communities and protecting minority representation.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Exotic animal owners in Ohio are asking a federal appeals court to reconsider its decision that upheld the state's restrictions on exotic animals.

The owners sued the state over the regulations, arguing that the law violates their free speech and free association rights.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati court ruled against the owners earlier this month.

Ohio says the rules address animal welfare, public health and public safety concerns associated with private ownership of dangerous wild animals.

The new law requires owners to get a new state-issued permit by Jan. 1 of this year. They also must pass background checks, pay fees, obtain liability insurance or surety bonds and show they can properly contain and care for the animal.

Writers Workshop Set

Written by

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Hundreds of writers and literary fans will gather in southwest Ohio for the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop in early April.

The University of Dayton says the April 10-12 workshop sold out in 12 hours, with 350 writers from around the nation.

But there are other events that are free and open to the public. They include the writing competition results ceremony April 9, with entries from 853 writers. There also will be book-signings with author-columnist Lisa Scottoline and cartoonist Tom Batiuk, creator of "Funky Winkerbean."

Long-time talk show host Phil Donahue will give the opening keynote for the writers' workshop. Donahue was a neighbor of Bombeck, the late University of Dayton graduate known for her humorous writing.

The biennial workshop in her name was launched in 2000.

Former Death Row Inmate Denied Lawsuit

Written by

CINCINNATI (AP) - A federal appeals court says a man who was freed from prison after spending 21 years on Ohio's death row because of a botched prosecution can't pursue his lawsuit against the county prosecutor's office.

A three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Cincinnati ruled that Joe D'Ambrosio's lawsuit amounts to a failed attempt to hold Cuyahoga County accountable for the actions of individual prosecutors. The court said the lawsuit failed to establish that their actions were part of a larger pattern of corruption.

D'Ambrosio was imprisoned on a murder conviction in the 1988 death of a 19-year-old man. He was released in 2010 when a federal judge ruled prosecutors failed to provide evidence that could have exonerated him.

His lawyer said Thursday they would likely appeal.
