WALSH UNIVERSITY

Akron and Kent State are not the only universities in northeast Ohio looking for a new president. Walsh University in North Canton has launched a national search for a new leader to replace Richard Jusseaume, who will retire at the end of June.

Jusseaume is currently the second longest serving president of an Ohio four-year private university. He's been at the helm at Walsh for 18 years. Serving as president of Walsh is the culmination of a rare and enduring relationship Jusseaume has had with the school.  

AKRON-CANTON REGIONAL FOODBANK

Chilly weather did not deter more than 1,000 people who turned out early Saturday morning to help the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The Foodbank hosted its sixth annual Selfless Elf 5K. Participants received a pair of striped elf socks, which added to seasonal costumes many runners wore. The course began and ended at the Foodbank's warehouse near downtown Akron.

The Ohio House has passed another abortion measure. This one outlaws the use of dilation and extraction or D & E to end a pregnancy. D & Es are typically used after 12 weeks. The measure passed the Senate last summer, so it now heads to Governor John Kasich.

Democratic representative Tavia Galonski of Akron objects to the bill because it does not exempt victims of rape or incest. She opposes state lawmakers pushing to enact strict abortion laws.

Congressman Tim Ryan delivered an impassioned speech on the floor of the U.S. House this morning on behalf of workers at the General Motors Lordstown plant in his district.

Some 1,500 employees found out this week that GM will idle the plant next March. Ryan railed against supply side economics that he says have been pushed in America for forty years.
