  • Ohio will be election eve hotspot
  • Trio in bridge bombing plot face sentencing
  • Outage update
    About 60-thousand homes and businesses are still without power in Northeast Ohio today, five days after superstorm Sandy made landfall.  FirstEnergy estimates nearly all its customers will be back on-line by Monday.

    Ohio 2nd most business friendly state in U.S.
    A national survey of business executives and corporate real estate strategists ranks Ohio just behind North Carolina as the most business friendly state in the U.S.

    Ohio jumped to the number two spot in Site Selection magazine’s annual survey, up from 9th place last year.

    The poll considers six factors including tax policy, the number of new plants built in the state, and overall competitiveness.   

    Ohio is the only state that ranked in the top 10 in each of the six categories.

    The Buckeye State edged out third place Texas and is the only Midwestern state to appear in the top ten.

    Ohio also won the Governor's Cup this year, with the most new projects announced of any state in 2011, according to Site Selection analysis


    Ohio is no. 1 battleground state
    Ohio is the number one battleground state in the presidential race. 

    President Obama has three rallies schedule today in Ohio, Gov. Romney  has two.

    Both will be back in Ohio the day before the election with musicians for warm-up acts. 

    The Romney campaign says the Marshall Tucker Band will join him Monday afternoon at the Columbus airport.

    Obama's Columbus rally Monday will include Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z.


    Trio in bridge bombing plot face sentencing
    The government wants up to life prison terms for three men who pleaded guilty in a plot to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio, but the defense is seeking leniency.

    The trio will be sentenced Nov. 19 in Akron.

    The government says the plot amounted to terrorism. It says a bomb dud provided by an FBI informant should be viewed as a weapon of mass destruction.

    The defense said Friday a five-year term is appropriate.

    A fourth man pleaded guilty earlier and agreed to testify for the government.  A fifth defendant is undergoing a psychiatric exam.
