    DeWine offers first-responder training for teachers
    Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the state will begin offering training for teachers on how to be first-responders to shootings. DeWine says the recommendation came out of a task force formed in the wake of the Chardon school shooting in February.

    DeWine says the first course will begin next month and will focus on how to identify a potential shooter and what to do in the midst of a school shooting. Asked if teachers should be able to carry guns, DeWine said that’s a decision best left to local school boards.


    Stark County coach sentenced

    A former high school basketball coach in Stark County has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for videotaping nude boys in the high school locker room over a period of eight years.

    Forty-six-year-old  Scott Studer  pleaded guilty this morning to eight counts of illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material. The judge sealed the tapes, immediately sentenced the former Jackson High School coach to prison and ordered him to pay a $5,000 fine to a fund for the victims in Newtown, Conn. He faced as much as 64 years in prison.

    Dairy prices could soar without farm bill
    The dairy industry could be facing a fiscal crisis unless Congress passes a new farm bill or extends the current one.

    The New York Times is reporting milk prices could soar to more than $6 a gallon after the first of the year.

    Ohio has more than 3,200 dairy farms and ranks 11th in milk production nationally and first in Swiss cheese. Much of the industry is concentrated in Tuscarawas, Wayne and Holmes counties.

    Lawmakers are trying to get the farm bill into any deal to avert  the fiscal cliff.

    Accountant sentenced
    A 55-year-old accountant from Salem has been sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison and ordered to repay more than $1.1 million. Raymond Isabella pleaded guilty this week to wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering and aggravated identity theft. He was the chief financial officer of the privately held Intrasee Corporation, where he collected $335,000 in excess accounting fees.  He also arranged unauthorized loans from Huntington bank for the company.

    Turnpike plans examined
    Turnout was light for the first of a series of meetings organized by local Democrats and Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald to review Gov. John Kasich’s plan for the Ohio Turnpike. Kasich wants to borrow $1.5 billion against the turnpike’s tolls for other road improvements.  

    He had been considering leasing the turnpike, a plan FitzGerald says northeast Ohio officials helped sidetrack. But FitzGerald says the new plan still shortchanges Northeast Ohio.

    Only about a 18 people attended the first  meeting in Austintown.
