Mansfield prison works to reduce inmate assaults
Other noon headlines: Part-time faculty seeking unemployment compensation; Renacci eyeing Parma office


 
  • Part-time faculty seeking unemployment compensation
  • Renacci eyeing Parma office
  • Mansfield prison works to reduce inmate assaults
    A report says inmate-on-inmate assaults increased nearly 100 percent in two years at the Mansfield Correctional Institution, higher than the statewide average.
    The report says disturbances at Mansfield also went up, while guards at the 2,500-inmate facility say morale is low.
    The analysis by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee notes the prison has a challenging inmate population with frequent gang-related incidents and numerous inmates transferred in because of discipline problems.
    The report was issued just days before a convicted rapist escaped from the prison Wednesday only to be captured 24 hours later.
    The report says conditions are improving under Warden Terry Tibbals and that Mansfield is the only prison of those with the same security level statewide to reduce its total violent incident rate two years running.


    Part-time faculty seeking unemployment compensation
    Faculty groups are trying to guide part-time college instructors through state and federal unemployment compensation rules as they seek state aid in between terms.The Beacon Journal reports that the Akron-based New Faculty Majority and Ohio Part-Time Faculty Association have held "filing parties" and a Web seminar to help steer adjuncts through the process of collecting unemployment over summer.Adjunct instructors work from term-to-term. Many don't get health care through their employer.The newspaper says it's unclear how many adjuncts are filing for unemployment. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services won't release claim numbers on individual employers, citing privacy rules.Adjunct instructors at the University of Akron represent about 59 percent of the faculty workforce, which is the highest rate among Ohio's tax-supported universities.

    Renacci eyeing Parma office
    Congressman Jim Renacci is looking to open an office in the northern part of the 16th district -- and he's aiming for the heart of heavily Democratic Parma.
    The Republican congressman already has an office in his native Wadsworth. Now, he’s asked Parma to lease him part of the soon-to-be-shuttered Parma-South branch library.
    City officials say they're working with both Renacci and Democrat Marcy Kaptur to find office space. Their districts each cover part of Parma. Dennis Kucinich, who previously represented much of the area, kept an office in the city.
    A Renacci spokesman tells the Plain Dealer that no lease amount been determined, but the office is slated to open in mid-summer. He’ll be the second tenant of the building, after Parma Community General Hospital moved part of its accounting department there
