Ohio lawmakers wary of attack on Syria
Other headlines: Timken to split steel and bearing businesses; Kent man killed in I-76 accident

  • Timken to split steel and bearing businesses
  • Kent man killed in I-76 accident 
  • Mayor's court cases down
  • Ohio lawmakers wary of attack on Syria
    Most members of Ohio's congressional delegation are balking at President Barack Obama's call for U.S. military action in Syria.

    A survey by The Associated Press finds that both U.S. senators and most of the House members from Ohio say they are undecided. Two Republican congressmen say they would vote against at this point, and two others say they are leaning against.

    The only delegation member to voice support for limited military action against Syria so far has been House Speaker John Boehner. 

    Ohio's Republican U.S. senator has canceled a trip to New Hampshire to be in Washington for classified briefings on Syria.

    Rob Portman says he is undecided on whether to support President Obama's call for a U.S. military strike against Syria.

    Ohio's Democratic senator Sherrod Brown also hasn't decided on the Syria vote.

    Timken to split steel and bearing businesses
    An Ohio manufacturer says it is spinning its steel operations away from its bearings and power transmission businesses.

    Canton-based Timken announced Thursday it was splitting into the two independent, publicly traded companies.

    Current Timken chairman Ward J. “Tim” Timken Jr. will become chairman and chief executive officer of the new steel business.

    The company's bearings and power transmission business will continue to operate as Timken Co. with estimated annual revenue of $3.4 billion.

    The new engineered steel company will operate as an independent publicly-held company with estimated annual revenue of $1.7 billion.

    Shareholders supported the split in a non-binding vote at the company's annual meeting earlier this year.


    Kent man killed in I-76 accident 
    Officials in Summit County say a 42-year-old Kent man died in crash this morning on I-76 in Tallmadge.

    The westbound lane was closed for several hours following the accident involving the vehicle and a tractor-trailer. 

    The man’s identity is being withheld until family members can be contacted.


    Mayor's court cases down
    The number of traffic cases being heard in mayor's courts around Ohio is at a new low.

    The Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/14ue6to ) reports that the caseload fell last year to its lowest point since the state began tracking cases in 2004.

    Mayor's courts handled close to 288,000 cases last year - a 3 percent drop.

    The busiest courts are in Willoughby Hills outside of Cleveland and the Cincinnati suburb of Reading.

    Most of the mayor's courts in Ohio are in communities with less than 5,000 residents. A new state law requires a population of at least 201 to operate a mayor's court.
