Ohio to expand online DUI registry

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's public safety department is expanding its online registry of repeat drunken-drivers.  The registry includes drivers who have five or more DUI convictions in the past two decades.

The change comes after reports that the registry contained information from courts in only about half of Ohio's counties. The list contains 5,300 names compared with about 400 before the update.  A spokeswoman for the State Highway Patrol says the new list is a more up-to-date and complete.

The public safety department is no longer relying on local courts to supply the information and instead is compiling the list from electronic records.

CINCINNATI (AP) - A casino employee in Cincinnati and two others have been indicted on charges accusing them in a cheating scheme.  The indictment say the employee misused a rewards program at Cincinnati's Horseshoe Casino that allowed the two others to essentially gamble for free.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the employee used fake names to create 18 rewards program cards for her boyfriend and another man.  The cards don't have any cash value, but the casino can give gamblers rewards in the program that can be used when they gamble.

The newspaper says a casino internal audit uncovered the scheme.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Military veterans who served during the Persian Gulf War era have until Tuesday to claim Ohio bonuses of up to $1,500.

Ohio voters in 2009 approved a $200 million bond issue to fund bonuses for veterans of the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq war eras. Iraq War veterans have another year, until Dec. 31, 2014, to apply. No deadline has been announced for Afghanistan War and all veterans who served after Oct. 7, 2001.

Eligible next of kin of those who were killed in action or died of disease as a result of in-theater service also can apply for the Ohio Veterans Bonus.

As of earlier this month, roughly $60 million had been paid to nearly 72,000 veterans and family members covering all three war eras.

A possible primary opponent for FitzGerald

Written by

CINCINNATI (AP) - A southwest Ohio Democrat is set to announce whether he'll make a run for Ohio governor.  Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says he will reveal his decision Monday afternoon.

Portune could set up a Democratic primary against Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald if he decides to run.  A primary would be an expensive proposition as Democrats aim to take back the governor's office from Republican John Kasich.

Portune has spent the last two decades as either a Cincinnati city councilman or Hamilton County commissioner.
