  • Sandy causes power outages, flight cancellations
  • Two more Ohio meningitis cases
  • Clinton, Biden, Romney campaign make campaign stops in Ohio
  • Xavier continues offering insurance with birth control coverage
  • Sandy causes power outages, flight cancellations
    The massive storm making its way through the Northeast is causing outages, closings and cancellations throughout the region.  Cleveland Hopkins Airport has canceled all outgoing flights through this afternoon.  At the Akron-Canton Airport, all flights to the East Coast are cancelled, but all other flights are on schedule.  First Energy reports over 240,000 are without power this morning, mostly in Cleveland and surrounding suburbs.

    Two more Ohio meningitis cases
    Two more meningitis cases bring Ohio's total to 13 illnesses linked to a larger outbreak and recalled steroid injections for back pain. The Ohio Department of Health says the additional cases involve a 39-year-old Clermont County man and a 56-year-old Warren County woman. Cases of rare fungal meningitis also were reported in Crawford, Franklin, Hamilton, Marion and Morrow counties. Federal officials report more than 330 illnesses and 25 deaths in the outbreak linked to a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts called the New England Compounding Center. It has recalled its products. Officials say dozens of Ohio facilities received the pharmacy's products. Four clinics in Ohio received the potentially contaminated steroids, and the patients that got those injections were urged to watch for symptoms.

    Clinton, Biden, Romney campaign make campaign stops in Ohio
    Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton criticized Mitt Romney for saying that Chrysler is shifting production of its Jeep brand autos from Ohio to China. Jeep, a major employer in the Toledo area, has said it is adding jobs in China to meet growing demand there but is not halting production in North America. Campaigning together in Youngstown on Monday, Clinton said that Jeep has called Romney's claim "the biggest load of bull in the world." Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney rallied about 4-thosuand at Avon Lake High School Monday morning, telling the crowd he would put the interests of the American people before the interests of politics. During his 20-minute speech, Romney spotted a union auto worker in the crowd and used the opportunity to reassure voters he will strengthen the auto industry, despite his criticism of Obama's bailout.

    Xavier continues offering insurance with birth control coverage
    A Catholic school that drew criticism when it announced plans to halt birth-control insurance coverage is still offering it. Xavier University has continued offering insurance that covers contraceptives. A spokeswoman says the decision to continue came after the U.S. Supreme Court in June upheld President Barack Obama's health care legislation. School president Michael Graham had said earlier this year that without a legal mandate, it was inconsistent for the school to cover drugs and procedures that the church opposes. Graham remains critical of the requirement, saying religious institutions have never been asked to violate their consciences like that.
