Family sues Bowling Green State University over hazing death
(AP) -- The family of a student who died from alcohol poisoning while pledging a fraternity has sued Bowling Green State University. The complaint filed Thursday in the Ohio Court of Claims by Stone Foltz's family alleges the school knew about but didn’t stop hazing in Greek life there and should be held responsible. The university called his death a tragedy but said the suit is meritless.

Intel delays ceremonial groundbreaking for multibillion-dollar manufacturing facility near Columbus
(Cleveland.com) -- Intel is delaying the ceremonial groundbreaking on its massive semiconductor factory near Columbus, citing a lack of certainty over federal subsidies. Members of Congress are still negotiating a large legislative package that includes the $52 billion CHIPS Act, which would provide money to companies to make computer chips in the U.S. Republicans are balking at the overall price tag of the bill, which stands at more than $300 billion.

Lake Co. Sheriff pens emotional post amid low recruitment number
(News5) -- Lake County Sheriff Frank Leonbruno made an emotional plea on Facebook for members of the public to stop painting all police with a broad brush when they hear stories of police brutality. Leonbruno said negative attitudes toward law enforcement are making it difficult for his department to recruit. He said staffing issues are the worst he's seen in his 33 years in law enforcement.

Cavs select Agbaji at 14, add another Mobley in NBA draft
(AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers added some NCAA championship star power to their roster, selecting Kansas forward Ochai Agbaji with the No. 14 overall pick in the NBA draft. Agbaji led Kansas to the NCAA title last season and was named the tournament's most outstanding player. The 22-year-old averaged 18.8 points and made 41% of his three-pointers last season.

Gordon’s homer helps Twins slow Guardians in 1-0 win
