  • Bailiff guilty of pocketing traffic fines
  • District sides with allergic teacher over student with service dog
  • Titan Arum stinks up OSU greenhouse
  • Indians honor 40 years of drumming 
  • Kasich a long-shot for president, according to new poll
    A new poll shows that if Ohio Gov. John Kasich wants to run for president in 2016, he has some work to do.

    Public Policy Polling shows Kasich is tied for fifth if Ohio’s Republican primary were held today. Well ahead of him is Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, at 17 percent each, followed by Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Kasich is tied with Rep. Paul Ryan and ahead of Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum.

    The poll also shows a growing support for at least civil unions for gay couples in the state. More than two thirds of Ohioans support either civil unions or gay marriage, and just 27 percent oppose any sort of recognition.


    Bailiff guilty of pocketing traffic fines
    A former Cleveland Municipal Court bailiff has been convicted of pocketing traffic ticket fines and court costs.

    Between January 2009 and June 2010, bailiff Glenn Webb took about five-thousand dollars from traffic offenders who paid their fines in cash.

    Court clerk Aisha Muhammad has already pleaded guilty for helping cover up the scheme by altering court records to show the fines had been dismissed.

    She was sentenced to a year of probation and testified against Webb, who will be sentenced September 27.


    District sides with allergic teacher over student with service dog 
    The mother of an autistic first-grader who uses a service dog is challenging a decision that the girl must change schools in her southeast Ohio district because her teacher is allergic to dogs.

    Athens schools' superintendent Carl Martin calls it a reasonable solution to balance the rights of the teacher and the student.

    The mom, Charla Gretz, says she’ll take the issue to the school board.


    Titan Arum stinks up OSU greenhouse 
    A large rainforest plant known as a corpse flower is expected to bloom this weekend at an Ohio State University greenhouse that already experienced two of the rare blooms this year.

    The 5.5-foot titan arum sports a reddish-purple colored flower that emits the smell of rotting-flesh.


    Indians honor 40 years of drumming
    The Indians kick-off a 3-game series against the Minnesota Twins tonight at Progressive Field.  Tomorrow night, they’ll honor John Adams… not the President, but the man who sits in the bleachers drumming up support on a bass drum.  It’s the 40th anniversary of Adams’ cheerleading atop the bleachers, which he started doing in a nearly empty stadium on August 24, 1973 when the Indians beat Texas 11-5.
