Cleveland schools seek $200 million in construction funds
Other headlines: Toledo's Xunlight solar shuts down; Ohio proposes powdered alcohol ban

  • Toledo's Xunlight solar shuts down
  • Ohio proposes powdered alcohol ban
  • Cleveland schools seek $200 million in construction funds
    The Cleveland Metropolitan School District will be asking voters this fall for $200 million in continuing construction funds.

    The school board yesterday approved a new bond issue for the November ballot.

    The Plain Dealer reports that the new tax allows the district to rebuild or renovate 20 schools and fund upgrades for 25 other buildings.

    The new tax continues the $1 billion school construction and renovation program started in 2001.


    Toledo's Xunlight solar shuts down
    A troubled Toledo-based solar-panel manufacturer has closed, leaving dozens of employees out of work, according the Toledo Blade.

    Xunlight Corporation made flexible solar panels based on technology developed at the University of Toledo.

    A lawsuit earlier this year claimed the company attempted to defraud investors.

    The Blade reports that the University’s Innovation incubator invested $3 million in Xunlight. 


    Ohio proposes powdered alcohol ban
    Ohio lawmakers are proposing a ban on the sale of powdered alcohol should it become legal to sell it in the U.S.

    Federal regulators are still deciding whether to approve the sale of Palcolhol, a product that can be mixed with water to make vodka, rum and other drinks.

    A bipartisan bill introduced this week into the Ohio House would ban its sale, but not possession of the powered liquor.

    Alaska and South Carolina already have banned powdered alcohol.
