Party leaders to appoint a new sheriff in Canton

  • Party leaders to appoint a new sheriff in Canton
    The runner-up for a partisan appointment as a county sheriff in northeast Ohio is seeking the job vacated when the winner was disqualified by the Ohio Supreme Court.

    Interim Stark County Sheriff Timothy Swanson and Lt. Louis Darrow asked the court Monday to compel Democratic Party leaders to appoint Darrow as sheriff in Canton.

    With the sheriff's job vacant because the elected Democrat was sick, party leaders selected George Maier in February. Darrow finished second in the committee voting.

    The court removed Maier from office Nov. 6 because he lacked the recent law-enforcement experience required by law to be sheriff.

    County Democratic chairman Randy Gonzalez told The Canton Repository the party has hired five attorneys to sort out the issue.  Party leaders will meet Dec. 11 on the appointment.

     

    State dollars don't go as far in Ohio's highest poverty districts
    A leading education-funding think tank is releasing new district comparisons that it says more accurately reflect the costs of educating poor students in Ohio.

    The analysis released today by the Education Tax Policy Institute suggests that state dollars in Ohio's highest poverty districts aren't going as far as the state says they are.

    The institute challenges the "apples to apples" comparisons the Ohio Department of Education calculates to reflect each district's spending on special education and disadvantaged students.

    The differences amount to nearly $2,000 per pupil in some cases.

     

    Chrysler to build more than a half-million Jeeps
    The manager of the Chrysler assembly plant in Toledo says the facility will build more than a half-million Jeeps next year — making it one of the highest-volume assembly plants in North America.

    Chrysler builds the Jeep Wrangler and new Jeep Cherokee at the Toledo facility.

    The plant built about 275,000 vehicles last year and about 226,000 vehicles through October this year.

    The Toledo plant hired more than 1,800 new people ahead of launching the Cherokee, bringing total plant workforce to about 4,000.

     

    Teen arrested in case of woman found dead near Reynoldsburg High School
    Police say a teen is in custody after the discovery of an 18-year-old woman's body near a suburban Columbus high school.

    Reynoldsburg Police say the teen "confessed to taking an active role in her death." The suspect hasn't been publicly identified or charged.

    The slain body of Danielle Michaels was found Monday afternoon by a man walking his dog in a field near Reynoldsburg High School's Summit campus. Officials canceled classes at the school Tuesday.
