  • Illegal Ohio voters referred for investigation and possible prosecution
    Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is referring to investigators the cases of 17 people he says may have voted illegally in Ohio in the 2012 General Election.

    Husted says they were not U.S. citizens and that they were discovered through a cleanup of the state voter database over the last three years.

    The state now can cross-check citizenship information with Motor Vehicle records. And Husted says the records show that the 17 people being investigated provided non-citizen documentation when they got their driver’s licenses before and after the election.

    He says another 274 non-citizens are registered to vote in Ohio though there is no record they tried to vote.

    Ohio may start tracking addicted newborns
    The Ohio House may consider a proposal early next year to require hospitals to report to the state how many babies are born addicted to drugs.

    The proposal is being sponsored by Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, a northwest Ohio Republican who told the Columbus Dispatch that getting good numbers to document the problem is important to solving it.

    The Ohio Department of Health would have to come up with the reporting rules, and Wachtmann’s bill would prohibit police from getting the information.

    The state has started a $4 million pilot program to help women who are pregnant fight heroin and prescription drug additions. The Dispatch is reporting that the cost of treatment for drug-addicted newborns topped $70 million in 2011.

    Ohio lags in fighting infections diseases
    The Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation are measuring each state when it comes to handling  infectious diseases, and their new report gives Ohio a 4 out of 10. Still, that’s an improvement over past years.

    The 10-points measured include vaccinations, and Ohio has improved in providing money for a vaccination against HPV for teen boys and girls. The report faulted said Ohio came up short in flu vaccinations, and in vaccinating preschoolers against whooping cough.

    Ashtabula farm worker drowns in manure pit
    The sheriff in Ashtabula county believes a farm worker who died over the weekend drowned in a manure storage lagoon after his tractor turned over. Forty-one-year-old Santos Medina de Jesus drowned on a dairy farm Saturday after he was pinned by the tractor. The (Ashtabula) Star-Beacon reports the half-acre lagoon is about 4 feet deep. 

    Big numbers for Cleveland art museum
    The Cleveland Museum of Art says it saw a nearly 40 percent jump in visitors over the past fiscal year, with more than half a million people coming to the newly renovated museum. The museum is reopening the final wing since it began is renovation and expansion nearly a decade ago.

    Weak schedule help Ohio state stay undefeated
    Ohio State’s basketball team is undefeated. But it’s also playing a record that ranks just 223 among the toughest in the nation. Tonight, the 10-0 No. 3 Buckeyes host a 5-5 Delaware. But then the team heads goes to New York to play  8-3 Notre Dame on Saturday.
