  • Chardon remembers shooting victims
    Almost a year after three students were killed by a classmate at Chardon High School, the district hosted a panel today to mark the occasion. Students, school officials and others spoke about the late students and overcoming the trauma of last year's shooting. Jenniffer Deckard is with the Chardon Healing Fund. “They have chosen -- with great resolve -- to heal through greater service and kindness to others. We can all learn from their positive approach to paying it forward.” A plea deal is expected next week for 18-year-old T.J. Lane, who is accused of shooting Danny Parmertor, Demetrius Hewlin and Russell King, Jr.

    Kent State and city address fracking
    Kent City Council is reaching out to Kent State with regard to fracking. The city wants to work with the university to craft a joint anti-fracking policy. Kent State says that while the state sets the rules for oil and gas drilling on public land, the university's board of trustees would have to approve any proposed drilling. None HAS been proposed.

    Teachers concerned about Kasich budget
    Members of the Ohio Federation of Teachers — in Columbus for the union's annual convention — are visiting lawmakers to air concerns about Gov. Kasich's proposed budget. Union President Melissa Cropper criticized a new evaluation system that will be introduced later this year. She said it relies too heavily on the results of an annual state test designed to help students improve rather than judge their teachers. The teachers also say their classrooms would suffer as the result of Kasich's funding plan and the diversion of more public money to private-school vouchers.

    Cleveland and Youngstown on miserable list
    Forbes magazine has released its list of the most miserable cities. Toledo is 11, Cleveland is 17 and Youngstown is at 20. Topping the list -- Detroit, followed by Flint, Michigan with nearby Warren coming in 7th.
