Cuyahoga County leads state in population loss
Other headlines: Steris closes facility with 100 jobs lost; Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to add $2.3 million events center

  • Steris closes facility with 100 jobs lost
  • Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to add $2.3 million events center
  • Sheriff's deputies shoot Middleburg Hts. man in the head
  • Toledo's last abortion clinic faces closure
  • Cuyahoga County leads state in population loss
    Central Ohio is leading the state in population growth.

    Census bureau data released today show Franklin County — home to Columbus — recorded by far the most births in the state last year, at more 18,000.

    Adjacent Delaware County had the biggest percentage growth — 2.09 percent — in Ohio in the same period.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports that Ohio on the whole lost almost 7,400 people to migration last year. Almost half of that loss came from Cuyahoga County.

    Three-fourths of the state's 88 counties had a net loss of residents because of people moving out of the state.

    The census shows Ohio is home to 11.5 million people.


    Steris closes facility with 100 jobs lost
    A local medical supply company is closing one of its facilities and eliminating around 100 Ohio jobs.

    Mentor-based Steris Corporation specializes in hospital sterilization equipment.  The company is closing its Hopkins plant due to decreased demand for the product made there.

    Steris employs 1,500 people in Mentor and has nearly doubled its workforce over the last six years.


    Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to add $2.3 million events center
    Commissioners for the Cleveland Metroparks this morning approved plans for a new $2.3 million dollar event center at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, according to the Plain Dealer.

    Around half the funding for the project will come from food vendor Aramark.

    The new center would allow outside groups to hold special events at the zoo.

    Today’s meeting also allocated funds for improvements at the East 55thStreet and the Rocky River Marinas.


    Sheriff's deputies shoot Middleburg Hts. man in the head
    A county coroner says a 65-year-old man who was shot by sheriff deputies in suburban Cleveland died from a gunshot wound to the head.

    Authorities have yet to release details of what happened when Cuyahoga County sheriff's deputies confronted Israel Rondon on the porch of his house in Middleburg Heights on Tuesday.

    The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation said two deputies fired at Condon after they went to his home to serve a warrant. Authorities haven't said whether Condon had a gun or if he fired at deputies.

    Rondon was wanted for an alleged probation violation.


    Toledo's last abortion clinic faces closure
    The city of Toledo's last abortion clinic is fighting to keep its license in the face of a state mandate requiring such facilities to have a transfer agreement with a hospital.

    The Blade newspaper reports that the Capital Care Network tried to persuade an Ohio Department of Health hearing examiner Wednesday that a deal it struck recently with the University of Michigan Health System fulfills the requirement.

    The state had rejected the agreement, challenging the legality and common sense of transporting clinic patients suffering complications to another city. The mandate requires an agreement with a "local" hospital.

    The other abortion clinic in Toledo closed last summer under the rule because it also lacked such an agreement.
