In The Region:
  • Election day is tomorrow
  • New rules for judges to tell police about mentally ill defendants
  • Dropping out costs workers a lot
  • Gas prices head down in Ohio
  • AG unveils new meth-lab cleanup tool
  • Election day is tomorrow
    Voters in many Northeast Ohio communities will be going to the polls to for tomorrow’s primary election. In Cleveland, nine of the city’s 17 council wards have nonpartisan primaries. That includes Ward 2, where incumbent Zack Reed is facing three challengers. Reed was sentenced last week on his third DUI, and will begin a 10-day jail sentence Sept. 25. And voters in the tiny village of Linndale will consider a charter amendment aimed at giving the tiny community a more structured government.  Earlier this year, a change in state law shut down Linndale’s mayor’s court – and its main source of income.

    There also are city council primaries tomorrow in Akron.

    New rules for judges to tell police about mentally ill defendants
    The Ohio Supreme Court is proposing a change in court rules to ensure consistent reporting to law enforcement about convictions that involve violent mentally ill offenders.

    The proposal was recommended by a working group of representatives from law enforcement and the judicial system to implement the new law that took effect last week (Sept. 4).  The law requires judges to report to law enforcement when they order a mental-health evaluation or treatment for someone convicted of vioilence, or if they approve a conditional release for someone found incompetent to stand trial or not guilty by reason of insanity.

    Dropping out costs workers a lot
    Dropping out of high school has left many Ohio residents struggling to find jobs, with the demand for unskilled labor on a long-term decline. An analysis of federal labor figures by the Dayton Daily News shows dropouts 25 and older are nearly twice as likely to be jobless as their diploma-earning peers.

    Gas prices head down in Ohio
    Dropping out of high school has left many Ohio residents struggling to find jobs, with the demand for unskilled labor on a long-term decline. An analysis of federal labor figures by the Dayton Daily News shows dropouts 25 and older are nearly twice as likely to be jobless as their diploma-earning peers.

    Ohio gas prices have dropped by a dime a gallon over the past week. The auto club AAA puts the statewide average for regular at $3.52 a gallon -- roughly a nickel cheaper than the national average.

    AG unveils new meth-lab cleanup tool
    Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today unveiled five new methamphetamine chemical storage containers in Stark County today. He says they’ll help cut costs and save time associated with meth lab clean-up. DeWine announced the installation this morning at a news conference at the Ohio Highway Patrol post south of the Akron-Canton Airport. That’s where one of the containers is housed.
