  • Cleveland, Cincinnati on Forbes list of emerging downtowns
    Two Ohio cities have been named as being among 15 cities in the U.S. with emerging downtowns. Cincinnati and Cleveland made Forbes magazine's list released today. Forbes says it listed cities that have seen double-digit population growth and revitalized central business districts. Cleveland's projects include a casino, new aquarium, a new convention center this summer and a $200 million mixed-use development. Cincinnati's major projects include a $600 million retail and residential development on its riverfront  -  and its $400 million casino. Other cities that made the list include Detroit, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Denver and Louisville, Ky.

    Akron police arrest suspect in January shooting  
    Police in Akron say a reputed gang member is accused of shooting a woman who flashed her car headlights at him as she passed him in the street. Police say they connected 21-year-old William Dawson to the Jan. 24 shooting in Akron through ballistic evidence from the scene. 59-year-old Wylene Edwards was shot in the back after she flashed her headlights to alert two men who were standing in the middle of a street. Dawson was charged Monday with felonious assault and jailed in Summit County.

    High School student charged with posting threatening videos
    A former central Ohio high school student faces juvenile court sanctions after admitting that he posted online videos that classmates and parents found threatening. The 17-year-old boy admitted to a misdemeanor delinquency charge of inducing panic in a Columbus courtroom on Monday. The former Gahanna-Lincoln High School student could be sent to a juvenile center for 90 days, but he is eligible for probation. He'll be sentenced May 10. The Columbus Dispatch reports that the teen was arrested on Sept. 3 after police tracked several tweets and two YouTube videos to a computer in his home. They generated 200 calls to police from concerned parents and students. Prosecutors said one of the videos included an ominous threat to classmates.

    College students expelled for hacking grades 
    Miami University says two students have been dismissed from school for tampering with grades. The southwest Ohio school says its information security department and campus police were alerted at the end of last semester by a teacher who said grades online didn't match her paper copy. Investigation found that students used a device to record teachers' keystrokes, allowing them to obtain faculty usernames and passwords. Police say one student has been charged with six misdemeanor counts related to breaching university computer systems, and the other was charged with three. The school said the first unidentified student changed his own grades in 17 classes dating to spring 2011, and also changed other students' grades. The second student changed his own grade once and those of two other students.
