  • ODNR: Ohio's oil and gas production doubled from 2012-2013
    Latest figures from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources shows the state’s natural gas production nearly doubled from 2012 to 2013, led by fracking. ODNR says the 352 horizontal shale wells drilled in the Utica and Marcellus shale produced 3.6 million barrels of oil and 100 billion cubic feet of gas. On average, Ohio’s oil and gas production increased about 65 percent quarter to quarter. Compared to 2012, Ohio’s total oil production increased by 62 percent and natural gas production increased by 97 percent.

    Charges dismissed against two Steubeville teachers related to 2012 rape
    Charges have been dropped against two Steubenville City School employees accused of helping to cover up the rape of a 16-year old girl. Elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman and wrestling coach and elementary teacher Seth Fluharty were charged with failure to report child abuse or neglet by the special grand jury called by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Two Stuebenillve football players were convicted of raping the West Virginia girl in 2012 in a case that divided the community. The Steubeville Times Leader reports Gorman and Fluharty completed community service and training that allowed the charges to be dropped.

    American Greetings sells former headquarters
    The former American Greetings headquarters in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn has been sold. The Plain Dealer reports developers Stu Litchter and Chris Semarjian paid $15.5 million for the former greeting card company complex on Tuesday. The newspaper reports the 150 acres will become an industrial park mixing older buildings and new warehouses. American Grettings is building a new headquarters at Westlake's Crocker Park to be completed in 2016.

    Officials in Summit County are still searching a lake where a 16-year old boy disappeared while swimming. Dive teams searched Springfield Lake for several hours last night and are resuming the search today. They say the boy dipped below the water’s surface around 7:30pm.
