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.

Over 250 Mumps Cases Now Reported


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Public health officials say a mumps outbreak in central Ohio has topped 250 cases. That's more than half of the nation's 438 reported cases last year.
   The total as of Monday was 253 cases of the contagious viral illness, with 153 of those linked to Ohio State University. That includes 109 students and 17 staff members.
   Local health agencies say those infected range in age from 9 months to 80 years old. The cases span from early January to last week.
   Mumps often starts with fever, fatigue and body aches. Those infected are urged to stay home, cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing, and frequently wash their hands.
   Officials say local cases have included inflammation of the testicles and ovaries, deafness and hospitalizations.


 STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Attorney General's Office says a volunteer football coach is expected to plead no contest to charges that arose from the investigation into the rape of a girl by two high school football players.
   Authorities say the house of defendant Matt Belardine was the scene of an underage drinking party that preceded the 2012 rape by the Steubenville (STOO'-behn-vihl) players.
   Attorney general spokesman Dan Tierney says Belardine is expected to plead no contest Tuesday in Jefferson County court to one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking.
   Tierney says counts of obstructing official business and contributing to the delinquency of a child are expected to be dismissed.
   A message was left with Belardine's attorney seeking comment.

Ohio AG Assessing Computer Virus

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state's attorney general is offering tips for Ohioans to protect their personal information following a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this month.
   The so-called "Heartbleed" security problem has put millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information at risk.
   The extent of the damage caused by the breakdown is unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet's Web servers and went undetected for more than two years.
   Attorney General Mike DeWine is urging consumers to update passwords to their online accounts - including those for banking, shopping, email and social media. Residents who suspect that they are victims of a scam or identity theft can contact his office at 800-282-0515.

Turkey Hunting Begins in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's spring season for hunting wild turkeys opened Sunday, with youths allowed to begin hunting the popular game bird this weekend.
   The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says Ohio has had above-average hatch years that should result in many 2-year-old and 1-year-old male turkeys. The agency's Division of Wildlife anticipates about 70,000 licensed hunters aside from landowners hunting on their own property.
   The spring and youth turkey seasons are open statewide with the exception of Lake La Su An Wildlife Area in Williams County. A special hunting permit is required there.
   Hunters must have a hunting license and a spring turkey hunting permit. They may use shotguns or archery equipment. The wild turkey hunting season ends on Sunday, May 18. Ohio currently has about 180,000 wild turkeys.
