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.

Gay Pride Parade in Columbus

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - "Star Trek" actor and gay activist George Takei kicked off a gay pride parade in central Ohio.
 
   Takei led the parade through Columbus city streets on Saturday. The parade was aimed at encouraging equal rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
 
   Takei told The Columbus Dispatch that he wants the United States to be a country where everyone enjoys equality.
 
   The parade included music and more than 150 floats with marchers and attendees wearing rainbow-colored clothing.
 
   Some protesters carrying signs with red Xs over gay-rights symbols marched alongside the parade in protest. Some shouted Biblical passages regarding the definition of marriage.
 
   The parade was part of a three-day Columbus pride festival celebrating LGBT pride and support.

   SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Cedar Point is throwing a party this weekend to celebrate the anniversary of its oldest roller coaster.
 
   The Blue Streak has been thrilling riders for 50 years at the amusement park in Sandusky.
 
   The wooden coaster built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company gave its first rides in 1964.
 
   Cedar Point will be giving out cake and T-shirts at the park on Saturday to mark the occasion. They've also invited back Blue Streak operators from years past.
 
   The coaster named after the Sandusky High School Blue Streaks has a drop of nearly 80 feet and reaches speeds of 40 miles per hour.

   TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The University of Toledo's president is stepping down at the end of this month, moving up his planned departure by one year.
 
   Lloyd Jacobs announced Friday that he will leave his post at the end of June. He had said in March that he was planning to step down at the end of June 2015.
 
   Jacobs says he is changing his departure date after being asked to work with a global economic development organization that's based in Washington, D.C.
 
   He has been at the university the past eight years and before that led the former Medical University of Ohio in Toledo.
