  • Sen. Portman to tour VA clinic to promote bill
  • Smuckers' profits down in fourth quarter, up overall
  • Ohio measles case count rises towards 240

  • United's Concourse D officially closed at Hopkins Airport
    Cleveland Hopkins Airport Concourse D has officially closed down. Concessions at the concourse are no longer operating as of Thursday. United Airlines announced in February it was pulling its hub at Concourse D because it says it had been unprofitable for the last decade. The closure includes cutting daily flights from about 200 to around 70, along with about 500 jobs. The airline has consolidated its remaining flights at Hopkins to Concourse C.

    Sen. Portman to tour VA clinic to promote bill
    Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is planning to tour a Veterans Affairs clinic in Columbus and meet with area veterans. The Republican will discuss a backlog of VA benefit claims and reports of fraudulent management of VA medical appointment records during today’s visit to the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Center. Portman also will discuss a bill he has sponsored to improve the way the military identifies and assesses mental health issues.

    Smuckers' profits down in fourth quarter, up overall
    Orrville-based J.M. Smucker Co. reports profits were down in the fourth quarter, but increased overall for the year. Smuckers says the 9 percent drop in net income from the same quarter last year is due to pricing issues. On Tuesday, the company announced a 9 percent increase to its packaged coffee, citing increases in green coffee costs. Smuckers says profits were up 4 percent for the year overall and hopes to boost profits next year by introducing 150 more products.

    Ohio measles case count rises towards 240
    About 80 more measles cases have been confirmed over the past week, bringing the total for an Ohio outbreak to about 240 cases across six counties. Ohio's Department of Health reports Knox County has 143 cases of the highly contagious respiratory illness. Six of those involved hospitalizations. Neighboring Ashland County has 36 cases, and Holmes County has 33. Residents of Coshocton, Richland and Wayne counties also have been infected. Health officials say the outbreak started among Amish who had traveled to the Philippines, which has had a measles epidemic.

    OSU expected to freeze in-state tuition
    Ohio State University will likely freeze next year’s tuition for in-state undergraduates. The proposal, which could be approved by the Board of Trustees today, would keep yearly in-state tuition at about $10,000. However, out-of-state tuition would rise by 5 percent, raising the cost to over $26,000 a year. Room-and-board would also rise by a little over 4 percent.

    Arsonist to be sentenced Tuesday after being denied retrial and acquittal
    The man convicted twice of setting a fire that killed a woman and eight children in Cleveland is to be sentenced Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver turned down separate motions Thursday by Antun Lewis for a new trial and for an acquittal. Lewis was convicted in December of arson in the 2005 fire that killed a woman and eight children. The children were in the home for a birthday sleepover. Lewis had been convicted in the same case in 2011, but Oliver decided some of the witnesses were unreliable and ordered a new trial. The case was tried in federal court because the woman was getting federal housing assistance.

    Canton unlikely to host the 2015 NFL Draft
    Canton’s chances of hosting the 2015 NFL draft seem to be waning. Canton was one of over a dozen cities that bid to host next year’s draft, but only Los Angeles, New York and Chicago received letters asking for more information on their plans. However, NFL Vice President Brian McCarthy tells the Plain Dealer they have not eliminated any cities. The draft has been held in New York since 1965, but the league is considering rotating cities.
