  • Gun training instructor accidentally shoots student
    Police say an instructor of a gun-safety class in central Ohio accidentally shot a student during the weekend. 73-year-old Terry Dunlap, Sr. runs the training facility in Lancaster. He was demonstrating a .38-caliber hand gun on Saturday when he fired a bullet that bounced off a desk and into the arm of a 26-year-old Michael Piemonte. Many of the students in the class were nurses who helped stabilize him before he was taken to a Columbus hospital. A police report lists the incident as an accidental shooting.

    Human remains in Tallmadge identified as missing mom
    Authorities are investigating the deaths of a mother and child, after their remains were found in a wooded area behind their Summit County home. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed last night that one of the bodies is that of  31-year-old Wendy Ralston, who was reported missing August 7. The other body is believed to be that of her five-year-old son. Police got a call over the weekend from Ralston’s mother who went to the house in Tallmadge looking for her daughter. They found the remains wrapped in a bed comforter and sheet. 

    Railroad crossing where teens were killed gets safety upgrades
    Road crews are finishing work to create a more gradual slope leading up to a Lorain County railroad crossing where a car crash killed four teenagers last year. A car carrying Brunswick High School students went airborne, crashed and flipped at the crossing in June 2012. Two of the teens who died were scheduled to graduate later that day. The Ohio Department of Transportation tells the Plain Dealer that a $450,000 project has eased the approach to the crossing in Columbia Station. It's expected to re-open Thursday. New caution signs were added near the crossing after the crash, and the recommended speed limit was lowered.

    FBI arrests gang members in Youngstown area
    The FBI says 11 adults have been arrested on gang-related charges including drug and weapons counts in the Youngstown area. The FBI-sponsored Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force said Monday that 11 of 13 people indicted by a county grand jury were arrested and authorities were seeking the other two. An FBI release says three others were charged through juvenile court for alleged participation in the Vic Boys gang. Authorities say the gang was involved in drug trafficking and gun violence on the city's east side.

    New analysis on Medicaid expansion to be discussed today
    An Ohio Senate committee plans to hear testimony today on a new analysis that projects the state could save money and cover more people by expanding Medicaid. State lawmakers have been trying to find common ground on Medicaid since Republican Gov. John Kasich proposed an extension of the federal-state program in February. GOP leaders pulled it from the state budget, and the issue has yet to gain traction in the Legislature. A state Senate committee is scheduled to hear more about the Medicaid projections from the Health Policy Institute of Ohio. Democratic state Sen. Capri Cafaro cited the analysis in her proposal to extend the Medicaid program and cap its cost growth at a roughly 3.5 percent rate, compared to the current rate of 7.2 percent a year.

    Air Force base in Dayton braces for more cuts
    Officials at Ohio's largest military base are bracing for more potential spending cuts for a major Air Force command based there. A Pentagon directive to reduce spending at management headquarters could affect the Air Force Materiel Command offices at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. The directive from the secretary of defense calls for the 20 percent cut over five years. Details aren't yet known. The reduction applies to budget money, but a memo from a deputy secretary of defense indicates staff also may be affected.

    Pilot Flying J faces another lawsuit
    Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam’s truck stop business faces another lawsuit in an alleged fuel rebate scheme. Georgia trucking company Cedar Creek plans to opt out of Pilot Flying J’s proposed settlement and has sued the truck stop chain. Cedar Creek's attorneys are seeking to question Haslam and other executives under oath about the alleged rebate fraud during a video taped deposition scheduled for Oct. 15. Pilot’s settlement calls for repaying trucking companies the amount they’re owed, plus 6 percent interest. There have been nearly two dozen other suits filed in the past four months.

    Omnova Solutions eyes move out of Fairlawn
    A Summit County based global polymer company may be relocating to the Cleveland suburbs. Omnova Solutions is considering a new headquarters project in Beachwood. It currently employs nearly 150 in Fairlawn and says it’s been looking at a move for nearly two years. Its current lease expires late next year. The Beacon Journal reports Fairlawn has offered a more than $5 million incentive package to encourage the company to build a new headquarters in the city.
