Mumps Case Grows

Written by

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Health officials tracking a mumps outbreak in central Ohio say there are now 175 confirmed cases, with 111 linked to Ohio State University.
   Local health agencies in the area say that those infected by the viral illness range in age from 9 months to 70 years. They include 86 Ohio State students and 10 staff members.

House Debates Budget

Written by

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - State representatives of both parties have criticized Ohio Gov. John Kasich for saddling them with a midterm budget bill loaded with proposals they called unsuited for a non-budget year.
   One fellow Republican said Kasich's practice of proposing voluminous off-year budgets was putting the governor in control of Ohio's legislative branch of government.
   Rep. Terry Boose's remarks came Wednesday before the House voted 57-33 to pass the measure.
   Democrats railed particularly against a last-minute amendment to one of nine bills derived from Kasich's 1,600-page "midbiennium review" that were up for votes Wednesday. The revision changed campaign finance law to lift a disclosure requirement applied to independent political expenditures and loosen political-giving restrictions on state contractors.
   Other bills up to for votes addressed education, job training, veterans and workers' compensation.

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.
