  • Chardon plans for school shooting anniversary
  • Ohio House takes up Governor's latest budget
  • Wall Street reacts to losses at Cleveland's Cliff Natural Resources
  • Dayton Chamber estimates $150 million hit from proposed Defense cuts
  • Owners sue I Love This Bar and Grill for back rent
  • Chardon plans for school shooting anniversary
    Activities to commemorate the first anniversary of the shooting at Chardon High School that killed three students include a concert, memorial walk and remembrance services.  The plans marking the Feb. 27 anniversary also include support for a non-profit organization that provides blankets to ill or traumatized children. Prosecutors say 17-year-old T.J. Lane fired 10 shots at a group of students in the cafeteria. A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation to determine if he is competent to stand trial.


    Ohio House takes up Governor's latest budget
    Gov. John Kasich’s second budget has been officially introduced in the Ohio House, though hearings actually started after he unveiled the spending plan last week. The Senate won’t get the budget till it passes the House, and that could take a while. But Senate President Keith Faber says his caucus is already looking it over, and is especially interested in the Governor’s proposed shift from income taxes to sales taxes as the state’s largest source of revenue.  
    Faber says the Senate has not taken a position formally on any of the proposals. He says, "We’re going to vet them, we’re going to listen to what people have to say about them, and we’re going to study the impacts, both intended and unintended.”  Faber says the caucus also hasn’t taken a position on the proposed expansion of Medicaid, but admits Republicans have some concerns about the long-term impact on the state. Republicans outnumber Democrats in the Senate 2-1, and the GOP also has a supermajority in the House.  Karen Kasler - Ohio Public Radio


    Wall Street reacts to losses at Cleveland's Cliff Natural Resources
    Cleveland-based mining company Cliffs Natural Resources saw its shares plunge more than 10 percent this morning after reporting steep 4th quarter losses.  Analysts attribute declining prices in iron ore exports.  In January, Cliffs said it would write off $1 billion related to its takeover of a Canadian mining consortium.  Cliffs supplies iron ore from mines in Canada, the U.S. and Australia to steelmakers in North America and Asia.


    Dayton Chamber estimates $150 million hit from proposed Defense cuts
    A newspaper reports that furloughs for civilian employees at Ohio's largest military base would cost the economy more than $111 million through September.  The Dayton Daily News reports that the estimate is based on 22 days of unpaid time off for 14,278 civilian workers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. That's according to an Air Force document obtained by the newspaper.
    Wright-Patterson could resort to furloughs if Congress and President Barack Obama fail to avert sequestration, or automatic defense and domestic spending reductions set to begin March 1. The Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce says the ripple effect of furloughs could have an economic impact of $150 million or more in the region.


    Owners sue I Love This Bar and Grill for back rent
    Developers are suing country singer Toby Keith's namesake restaurant at Cincinnati's riverfront. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill is three months behind on its rent at The Banks, a new $600 million development between the Reds and Bengals stadiums along the Ohio River. The Banks developers are suing the southern-style sports bar for $121,000 in back rent, alleging breach of contract. The lawsuit was filed Friday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. The year-old business remains open. A woman identifying herself as a manager at Toby Keith's said Wednesday that she could not comment on the lawsuit. Keith's restaurant chain started in his native state of Oklahoma and is named for his 2003 hit, "I Love This Bar."
