Procter and Gamble Gets Green

Written by

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The Procter & Gamble Co. has updated its policy on palm oil following high-profile protests by Greenpeace at its Cincinnati headquarters.
   The world's largest consumer products company said Tuesday that it has adopted a "no-deforestation" policy for its palm oil products. That includes working with those in its supply chain to ensure that by 2020 its products do not contribute to deforestation.
   The moves came after weeks of pressure from Greenpeace, which unfurled huge banners from the company's corporate offices last month. Police arrested the activists on burglary and vandalism charges.
   Greenpeace says Tuesday's announcement is a huge step toward protecting Indonesia's rainforests and the communities that depend on them.

Athens County Tabs Interim Sheriff

Written by

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Democratic Party officials have named a retired lieutenant as interim sheriff in a southeast Ohio county where the elected sheriff is facing corruption charges.
   The Athens County Democratic Party Central Committee on Tuesday named Rodney Smith as the interim sheriff to serve in place of Sheriff Patrick Kelly, who was suspended by the state after his indictment in the corruption case.
   Smith already had been directed by county commissioners to run the office temporarily, but the local party committee was required to name an interim.
   The charges against Kelly include theft in office, tampering with records and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. Kelly is suspected of improperly using public funds to buy meals and apparel, among other allegations.
   Kelly has denied wrongdoing and vowed to fight the charges.

Governor's Budget Facing Amendments

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio legislative panel is set to consider more changes to a midterm budget bill on track for a House vote this week.
   The House Finance and Appropriations Committee amended the sweeping proposal Monday to clarify college athletes are not considered employees under state law.
   The move comes after a decision last month by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board involving the Northwestern University football team. That ruling said full scholarship players can be considered employees and thus have the right to form a union.
   The amendment was among dozens made to the bill.
   The Republican-dominated committee removed a provision to require electronic registration for unemployment compensation benefits, and it sought to penalize counties who don't follow state procedures for providing absentee ballots.

New Drug Initiative Gets Big Grant

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Twenty-two grants totaling $1.5 million will help strengthen school-based alcohol and drug prevention programs in Ohio.
   The governor's office said Monday that the Building Youth Resiliency grants will help at-risk kids in 19 counties. The program - part of Ohio's new youth drug prevention initiative called Start Talking! - targets students in 5th through 9th grades.
   Building Youth Resiliency is a partnership between the Office of the First Lady Karen Kasich, the Governor's Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and several state agencies. It is supported by federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families dollars.
   Programs were selected from a pool of 38 proposals. To be eligible, applicants were required to partner with schools where more than 40 percent of the student population qualifies for the free- and reduced- lunch program.
