  • New law helps people with a past clear criminal records
    The number of people who have had their criminal records cleared in Cuyahoga County has nearly doubled in the first part of this year compared to all of last year. That’s because a new state law makes it easier for people to have their records of misdeeds expunged. The Plain Dealer reports that the new law allows people with a felony and a misdemeanor or two misdemeanors convictions to have their records expunged. The law limits the types of crimes for which a judge can seal the records, including violent crimes and traffic related crimes. But people can obtain a certificate of qualification for employment if they can prove they’re rehabilitated despite a criminal past.

    Browns owner will address questions at Indianapolis meeting
    Browns owner Jimmy Haslam will be facing questions from trucking companies at meeting next week in Indiana. WEWS –TV reports the event is sponsored by a law firm representing many of the firms Haslam’s Pilot Flying J truck stop chain is accused of defrauding. Haslam will take questions from top trucking company officials about the April 15 raid of his company and alleged price fixing. 

    Horsing racing sees rebound in Ohio
    Ohio's horse racing industry is showing signs of rebounding. Better times are expected for horse racing in Ohio now that new gambling rules are allowing tracks to add slots-like gambling that will pump millions into the horse industry. Some tracks are renovating to add the video terminal games while others are building new entirely tracks. The chairman of the Ohio State Racing Commission says state is seeing growth in standardbred horse breeding after years of decline. Tracks around the state also reported last year that attendance at harness racing events was up after slipping in recent years.

    Ohio university presidents are well paid
    A new survey shows that most public university presidents in Ohio make more money than the national median salary for the job. Of the 10 state public colleges surveyed, nine of their presidents earned more than $440,000 — that's the national median. Eight of the Ohio presidents make more than $500,000. Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee came in third-highest in the nation. He made $1.9 million last year. After Gee, the three public-college presidents in Ohio with the highest compensation are - University of Cincinnati President Gregory H. Williams, Cleveland State University President Ronald M. Berkman, and Wright State University President David R. Hopkins.
