  • More auto manufacturing for Ohio
    Honda has announced that will build its new Acura NSX high-powered sports car in central Ohio.

    According to the Columbus Dispatch, the auto maker will create a manufacturing center within its Marysville North American logistics center.  Honda says it will invest $70 million, and will reposition some 100 employees already working in Ohio.

    Lake Erie basin added to federal aid list
    The U.S. EPA, agriculture department and Army Corps of Engineers have picked the Western Lake Erie Basin for new revitalization efforts.

    The area centered on Toledo is one of 11 new locations designated for the Urban Waters Federal Partnership program. The goal includes improving water quality, restoring ecosystems and enhancing public access to urban waters.  

    Sen. Brown pushes for Water Resources Development Act
    Ohio’s U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says more than 400 dams in the state are high or significant hazards and lack emergency plans. He plans to outline this afternoon how the Water Resources Development Act should be used to change that. He also wants the money to go toward dredging and maintenance in Lake Erie harbors. The Senate will vote this week on the act, and reauthorization of the expired National Dam Safety Program

    Some $23 million payback ordered in Ponzi scheme
    A federal judge in Akron has ordered two brothers from Warren and their companies and associates to pay more than $23 million for a foreign currency Ponzi scheme.

    Judge David Dowd issued the order this week against Kevin and Keelan Harris, Canada-based Karen Starr, and their companies.

    Dowd determined that the Harrises, Starr and companies Complete Developments LLC and Investment International Inc. violated anti-fraud provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act. He said they bilked investors in their “professionally managed” accounts from November 2006 though October 2008. Rather than trading on foreign currency exchanges, Dowd said they used money from new investors to pay off old ones and to cover their personal expenses.

    St. Peter's parishioners, bishop keep talking
    The Plain Dealer is reporting that talks continue between Cleveland’s Catholic bishop and a break-away parish, the Community of St. Peter.

    After Lennon closed the downtown Cleveland church, St. Peter’s congregants and their pastor, the Rev. Robert Marrone, set up worship space in a converted warehouse. Lennon maintained the space was not sanctioned.

    After the Vatican ordered Lennon to reverse the closure of about a dozen churches in his diocese, he reopened St. Peters and excommunicated Marrone when he continued to celebrate Mass at the new church.

    The Plain Dealer reports that a newsletter updating the congregation quotes Lennon saying, "in Catholic theology, communion with the bishop is vital as the bishop is the direct successor of the Apostles,” and that St. Peter’s is operating outside the bishop’s authority.
