Schools, casino, Akron Zoo closed as deep freeze hits Ohio
Frigid temperatures and dangerous wind chill force closures of schools, ski resorts and other facilities across the region

  • Bedford judge pleads not guilty to soliciting prostitution charges
  • Former Ohio AG Marc Dann resumes law practice
  • Browns pay $50 million to fired coaches 
  • Schools, casino, Akron Zoo close as deep freeze hits Ohio
    A wind chill warning is in effect for most of northeast Ohio.

    Schools are closed across the state as cities brace for dangerously cold weather.  Officials are warning people to stay inside if possible.

    Ohio State University and the University of Toledo, Cleveland’s Casino, and local ski resorts are closed today. 

    The Akron Zoo is closed today and tomorrow too, as temperatures dip to the coldest in more than two decades.  And the highs aren't expected to get out of single digits Tuesday.

    Forecasters say low temperatures around zero — with possible wind chill factors of around 30 below zero — are possible through Wednesday.


    Bedford judge pleads not guilty to soliciting prostitution charges
    One of Bedford’s two municipal judges has pleaded not guilty to promoting prostitution, bribery and other charges.  Judge Harry Jacob III and Law Director Ken Schuman were charged in a 19-count indictment last month, and Jacob entered his plea today.

    He’s accused of soliciting sex, supervising prostitutes and giving the women special treatment in his court.  According to Cleveland.com, Jacob’s attorney David Grant “adamantly denies” the charges.

    Schuman is to be arraigned Thursday on charges that include, bribery, money laundering, theft in office and obstructing justice.


    Former Ohio AG Marc Dann resumes law practice
    Disgraced former Attorney General Marc Dann is preparing to argue his first case before the Ohio Supreme Court since he was forced from office amid a sexual harassment scandal, convicted of an ethics violation and temporarily stripped of his law license.

    The Youngstown-area Democrat appears before the court Wednesday. He is representing a homeowner sued for foreclosure by Bank of America.

    Dann resigned under pressure in May 2008 after a showdown with the state Democratic party, governor and Legislature over his misdeeds.

    Dann continues to pursue foreclosure, consumer protection and banking cases in his private practice.


    Browns pay $50 million to fired coaches

    The Browns are paying around $50 million dollars to former coaches and staff not to work.

    Browns owner Jimmy Haslam cleaned house last year, firing team president Mike Holmgren, GM Tom Heckert.  Haslam is still paying former Coach Pat Shurmer and his staff.

    The Browns owe Rob Chudzinski more than $10 million after he was fired after one season.

    CBS sports reports that Chudzinski and his staff, along with former coaches Chris Palmer, Butch Davis, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, and  Shurmur cost the Browns around $50 million.
