Noon headlines: summer hazards; blinking trial; wetland restoration

  • Study shows summer is full of chemical hazards
  • Blinking testimony questioned in Ohio trial
  • Groups plan to restore 2,500 acres of Lake Erie wetlands 
  • Study shows summer is full of chemical hazards
    A new study shows children are more likely to be poisoned by household chemicals during the warmer summer months. That's the finding by researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus. The national study showed that kids are more likely to be poisoned during warmer months by hydrocarbons — a chemical compound found in household items from cleaning products to gasoline. It's during warmer months that chemicals are out for lawnmowers, outdoor torches and grills.

    Blinking testimony questioned in Ohio trial 
    Testimony has resumed in the Ohio trial where prosecutors say a dying, paralyzed man identified the suspected shooter by blinking his eyes. The murder trial of Ricardo Woods resumed this morning with a neurologist describing the paralyzed victim's condition when he was hospitalized. Woods' is accused of shooting and paralyzing 35-year-old David Chandler of Cincinnati.  Before he died Chandler blinked three times for "yes" to identify a photo of Woods as his shooter. Defense attorneys insists the blinks were inconsistent and unreliable.

    Groups plan to restore 2,500 acres of Lake Erie wetlands 
    Conservation organizations are joining together to turn 2,500 acres along western Lake Erie back into wetlands. The groups say restoring the wetlands east of Toledo near the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge will help improve water quality and provide habitat for fish and birds. It's one of many projects aimed at building wetlands along Lake Erie through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The project includes pumps and water control devices that can allow fish into the wetlands while also block out unwanted carp that can destroy the marsh.
