WTO ruling on China is expected to boost Ohio auto production
More noon headlines: Portman and Ukraine, 'Stop Kasich,' tax credits, star gazing, Indians
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE


Web Editor

In The Region:
  • WTO tells China to drop tariffs on U.S. autos
  • Portman on his way to Ukraine
  • 'Stop the Kasich raid' campaign moves to Northeast Ohio
  • Tax credits for Austintown business
  • Star gazing tomorrow morning 
  • Extra innings pay off for the Indians
  • WTO tells China to drop tariffs on U.S. autos
    The World Trade Organization has sided with the U.S. in its fight over Chinese tariffs on U.S. autos. The decision is expected to benefit both Honda production in Marysville and Jeep production in Toledo.

     The WTO says China must rescind anti-dumping and countervailing duties of as much as 21 percent that it placed on American autos in 2011. 

    Both of Ohio’s U.S. senators, Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, praised the decision.

    Tax credits for Austintown business
    The Ohio Tax Credit Authority has approved tax credits for eight projects this week, including a seven-year, 40-percent job creation credit for Hynes Industries in Austintown. The company processes metal and says it will create 42 full-time jobs.

    'Stop the Kasich raid' campaign moves to Northeast Ohio
    A group of city officials from around the state is in Cleveland, Youngstown and Akron today as part of a two-day campaign called “Stop the Kasich Raid.” They claim Gov. Kasich has balanced the state budget by raiding local government funds. Kasich says the cuts in the funds and in estate taxes that benefitted local governments are a small part of their budgets.

    Portman on his way to Ukraine
    Ohio’s Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman is on his way to Ukraine to observe Sunday’s elections. Twenty-one candidates are competing to become the country’s next leader and if none gets a majority, a runoff will be June 15.

    Portman helped negotiate a trade deal with Ukraine when he was U.S. trade representative in the mid-2000s, and is to show support for a Ukraine independent of Russia. Ohio has one of the largest populations in the U.S. of people of Ukrainian descent.

    Star gazing tomorrow morning 
    Clear skies predicted for much of Ohio should make for prime viewing for a meteor shower early tomorrow morning.

    That's when our planet will pass by debris from Comet 209P/Linear, which creates the shower. Scientists believe it could produce as many as a hundred or more  shooting stars per minute. Viewing should be best from 2 to 5 a.m. The shower's name is Camelopardalids (CA-mull-oh-PAR-duh-lids). It's named after the giraffe constellation.

    Extra innings pay off for the Indians
    The Indians play tonight in Baltimore. Cleveland has won four straight – three in extra innings, including an 8-7, 13-inning win over Baltimore yesterday.
