Spring storm dumps heavy snow on Ohio; Amish families face eviction over outhouses; Strongsville mediators call Tuesday meeting in four-week-old strike

  • Spring storm dumps heavy snow on Ohio
  • Amish families face eviction over outhouses
  • Strongsville mediators call Tuesday meeting in 4-wk-old strike
  • Gas prices up slightly in NE Ohio
  • Spring storm dumps heavy snow on Ohio
    A March storm is still bringing heavy snow to many areas in Northeast Ohio and is expected to dump 2 – 4 inches in the region today. The Heaviest snow right now is falling through northern Medina, northern Summit, Lorain and southern Cuyahoga. A winter storm warning continues for Holmes County.

    A winter weather advisory has been issued until 3 p.m. for Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Wayne Carroll, Tuscarawas counties. This Nor'easter is not bringing the lake effect snow we’ve been seeing. The National Weather Service says west central and southwest Ohio could see four to 10 inches, with about one to four inches expected in far northern Ohio. Snow continuing into Monday morning was expected to create problems for commuters.


    Amish families face eviction over outhouses
    Two Amish families in northwest Ohio are seeking a compromise with a county health board that wants to evict them from new homes that lack required wells and septic systems. Amish from throughout the region are expected to turn out for a Tuesday meeting of the Kenton-Hardin Board of Health, where an appeal of the orders condemning the homes will be heard. Last summer, the health board said it would start enforcing rules that any new home must have a proper well and septic system — something the Amish have never had to do. 

     
    Strongsville mediators call Tuesday meeting in 4-wk-old strike
    The students are on spring break, and Strongsville teachers are still on the picket line as their strike enters its fourth week. Both sides will meet tomorrow with a federal mediator to go over a revised contract proposal the teachers submitted on Friday. The school board has said it will only meet with the teachers’ union at the mediator’s request.
    At issue are items such as pay freezes and the structuring of pension benefits and the school day. The school board says it needs to close a looming $6 million budget hole. Strongsville's is one of fewer than a dozen teachers’ strikes since Ohio approved collective bargaining for public employees in 1984.


    Gas prices up slightly in NE Ohio 
    Ohio drivers are seeing another slight bump at the gas pump to start the work week. A gallon of regular was listed at an average of $3.70 in today's AAA survey. The national average for regular gas is about $3.67 per gallon. The lowest average price in Ohio was about $3.64 in the Youngstown and Warren areas in northeast Ohio.
