  • Five Ohio cities on Forbes most affordable list 
  • Tesla exec meets with Ohio auto dealers
  • AG DeWine says vertigo linked to migraines
  • Late-winter storm knocks out power to thousands
    Power is out in parts of downtown Cleveland today as a late winter storm is hitting the region.

    More than 13,000 residents in Parma are part of the 26,000 FirstEnergy customers without power now.

    Snow emergencies were declared in some northwest Ohio counties Wednesday morning as heavy snow closed many schools and the University of Toledo.

    The storm comes on the heels of a pleasant day Tuesday that saw temperatures in the 60s in many areas of the state.


    Five Ohio cities on Forbes most affordable list
    Five Ohio cities have landed in the top 20 of a survey of the most affordable places to live in the U.S.

    With a median price of $100,000 for a home, Dayton has been ranked the fourth most affordable major city in the nation in an index of housing affordability compiled by the National Association of Home Builders.

    Cincinnati was ranked the third most affordable, with Akron sixth, Toledo 11th, and Columbus 20th in the survey of the 100 largest metropolitan areas, reported this week by Forbes magazine.

    Buffalo, N.Y., was considered by Forbes to be the nation's most affordable city to live. New York, N.Y., and Honolulu tied for the most overpriced.


    Tesla exec meets with Ohio auto dealers
    Ohio auto dealers in Ohio are still opposing expansion of company-owned dealerships by electric car maker Tesla, but they are now talking with the company.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports the vice-president of California-based Tesla met yesterday with members of the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association. 

    Independent auto dealers in Ohio are backing bill in the Ohio legislature which says that an auto manufacturer cannot own a dealership.

    Tesla has dealerships in Columbus and Cincinnati with plans to add one in the Cleveland area.

    No deal was worked out at yesterday’s meeting.

    AG DeWine says vertigo linked to migraines
    Ohio's attorney general says he has had other bouts of vertigo before the one that led to his hospitalization.

    Mike DeWine is back on the job this week, and he says he doesn't expect it to affect his re-election campaign this year. He was hospitalized overnight last Friday in Cincinnati after an onset of vertigo prevented him from delivering a luncheon speech.

    The 67-year-old DeWine says his doctor thinks his bouts are related to migraine headaches.
