  • Richmond Hts. mayor refuses to step down
    A showdown in looming between the mayor and backers of a recall campaign in the Cleveland suburb of Richmond Heights. 

    Mayor Miesha Headen is refusing to step down in the required five days after the county certified the more than 1,000 signatures on a recall petition. 

    Council must now schedule a special election within 30-45 days.

    Among other complaints, backers of the recall say Headen fired seven employee including the city law director and finance director and is stacking key committees with her supporters. 

    The Plain Dealer reports Headen vows to keep her job against what she calls a power grab.


    Search continues for missing Westlake woman; body found in Rocky River park
    The search for a missing Eastlake woman continues today five days after she was reported missing.

    A car belonging to 30 year-old Hillary Sharma was found Friday at Boston Mills section of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

    Park rangers and local police are searching trails and the Cuyahoga River for any signs of Sharma.

    Meanwhile the body of a 22-year-old Westlake woman was found in a wooded area of the Rocky River near Fairview Park.

    A spokeswoman for the Cleveland MetroParks told the Plain Dealer the body of Carolyn Marie Jerome was found Friday north of the Nature Center.

    And the search continues for a New York man who disappeared Sunday night while swimming in Lake Erie near Whiskey Island.

    The U.S. Coast Guard is leading that search.


    Absentee ballot applications heading out to voters
    The Ohio Secretary of State’s office will soon be sending applications for absentee ballots.

    Residents should be receiving the applications around Labor Day.

    The applications will first go out to more than 6 million active voters.

    Voters can cast an absentee ballot by mail or in person without giving any reason.

     
    Spark ignites grain dust in southwest Ohio fire
    A fire chief says explosions and a fire at a southwest Ohio grain silo began with a spark in a vacuum that pulls dust off the grain.

    The fire Friday caused heavy damage at the large Bunge North America facility in the village of Evendale. No injuries were reported.

    An explosion at a grain silo in Coshocton earlier this month injured seven workers.
