  • Harsh winter delayed Great Lakes shipping
    The harsh winter lingered longer in the Northern Great Lakes than normal, according to the National Weather Service.

    Ice as thick as 16 feet near the Sault St. Marie locks held up shipments of iron ore for the steel industry in the lower lakes.

    Meterologist Mike Stewart with the Duluth office says ice remained well into June.

    Stewart says the shipping of iron ore out of Duluth this year was delayed several weeks.


    Two trails reopened in CVNP
    The National Park Service has reopened two more trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park that were damaged by the May 12 storms.

    Wetmore and Langes Run trails in Boston Township are open again.

    Two trails remain closed: the Towpath Trail north of Ira Road in Cuyahoga Falls and the Botzum Trailhead in Akron. 

    The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is operating on a modified.

     
    Democrats question shake-up in Lt. Gov.'s office
    Ohio Democrats are raising questions about the lieutenant governor's reaction to irregularities found on her top aide's timesheets.

    Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor's chief of staff and another staffer resigned last week following issues with their timesheets.

    Taylor referred the matter to the state's inspector general to review.

    But Ohio's Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern told reporters Thursday that was "not a credible response" because the inspector general used to work for Taylor when she was state auditor.

    A spokesman for Inspector General Randall Meyer says he has sworn an oath to be impartial and will be in any of the matters that he addresses.

    Republicans have previously accused Democratic governor's candidate Ed FitzGerald of politicizing the Cuyahoga County watchdog's office.


    Suicide suspected in elementary school hanging
    Authorities near Cleveland say the body found hanging in a tree outside an elementary school is a likely suicide victim.

    Beachwood police say the body of a 24-year-old man was found hanging in a tree Wednesday morning at the back of Hilltop Elementary School.

    Administrators arriving for the second-to-last day of school discovered the scene before students arrived.

    The medical examiner's office identified him as Bram Glazer of Beachwood.

    The death "appears to be a suicide."
