  • Cleveland Plain Dealer protest
  • Goodyear earnings beat expectations

  • Another Legionnaires' death in Ohio
  • Another Obama staffer joins FitzGerald's gubernatorial campaign
  • CORRECTION: The Plain Dealer will continue home delivery on Saturdays, as well as Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. An earlier version of this story was based on the paper's original plans to cut down to three days a week.
    Cleveland Plain Dealer protest

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s union and its supporters began protesting outside the paper at noon today, saying management is cutting the newsroom by a dozen more people than the paper agreed to in January.

    Starting Monday, the Plain Dealer will go down to three days a week home delivery, eliminating Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.  It will continue to publish seven days a week and sell on newsstands, and plans to beef up its on-line presence.

    Goodyear earnings beat expectations
    Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has beaten analysts’ expectations with its second-quarter earnings report, sending share prices shooting up this morning.

    Goodyear more than doubled its second-quarter income to $181 million over the same quarter of 2012.

    Goodyear, Bridgestone-Firestone and BF Goodrich all reached tentative contracts this weekend with the United Steelworkers. Ratification votes are expected in the next two weeks.

    Ohio's disaster declaration
    The U.S. Small Business Administration has issued a disaster declaration for Perry, Athens, Fairfield, Hocking, Licking, Morgan and Muskingum counties because of severe storms on July 9th and 10th.  Five tornados and two microbursts were confirmed as the storms moved through Ohio, also affecting Ashland, Huron, Sandusky, Tuscarawas, Carroll and Jefferson counties. A quarter of a million people lost power.

    The disaster designation means people and businesses can apply for low interest loans to cover their uninsured losses.

    Another Legionnaires' death in Ohio
    A fifth death has been tied to an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at a central Ohio retirement complex. According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Franklin County Health Department has determined the cause of the outbreak was drinking water and the air-conditioning tower at the Wesley Ridge Retirement Community in Reynoldsburg. The outbreak also sickened 35 people.

    The tower has been shut down and some of the water restrictions have been lifted though residents are still advised not to drink or cook with water until more test results are in.

    Another Obama staffer joins FitzGerald's campaign
    Another veteran of President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign in Ohio has joined the gubernatorial campaign of Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald.

    Nick Buis will be Fitzgerald’s campaign manager. He joins another Obama staffer, Aaron Pickrell, who is FitzGerald senior advisor. Pickrell also ran former Gov. Ted Strickland’s successful campaign in 2006 and unsuccessful bid for re-election in 2010.
