In The Region:

The head of Ohio’s EPA has resigned, three years after he was appointed by Gov. John Kasich. 

An announcement from Kasich’s office gave no reason for Scott Nally’s leaving other saying he would “pursue other opportunities.”  Kasich praised him for keeping the environment safe while making the agency more business friendly. 

Last fall, the Ohio EPA’s  water chief, George Elmaraghy accused Nally and Kasich of forcing him to resign because of pressure from coal companies who wanted permits that could violate the Clean Water Act. Nally denied that.

 The acting EPA chief will be Craig Butler, who is Kasich’s

senior policy advisor on environmental, energy, public utility and agricultural issues. He also was a district director for the EPA.

Craig Butler is an excellent choice to fill this position.

Hmm...

I guess a headline of "EPA Chief Resigns; Former EPA District Director To Temporarily Fill Position" wouldn't have allowed Shultz-ie to editorialize or spin this in some sort of a negative manner.
