Another person has accused Congressman Jim Jordan of knowing about former Ohio State University team doctor Richard Strauss' alleged abuse. The former OSU wrestler made his comments to an Ohio House committee this week.

Michael DiSabato was one of the first Strauss accusers to bring the case to light two years ago.

Five former Ohio State wrestlers who say they were abused by former team doctor Richard Strauss, want Ohio’s inspector general to open investigations related to another alleged abuser.

Penn State beat Memphis in the Cotton Bowl Saturday, where fans experienced an annual display from the game's sponsor, Akron-based Goodyear. The tiremaker unveiled life-sized rubber sculptures of both teams' mascots. A press release from Goodyear said "These sculptures embody the dedication to outstanding performance built into each tire and every player and coach on the teams."

The five-foot tall, 200 pound polymer predators were handcrafted by former minor league baseball player Blake McFarland from more than 260 Goodyear tires.

Gov. Mike DeWine is urging state lawmakers to end the time limit on criminal charges for rape and sexual assault, which Democrats have been proposing for years. And the leader of the Ohio House said there’s a chance that will happen.

OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

Ohio State University released new information Thursday on the investigation into a former team doctor accused of molesting more than 100 athletes and students.  The latest update suggests fact-gathering could conclude within months.

Three-hundred thirty-five interviews. One-hundred forty-five firsthand accounts of abuse. Five-hundred twenty-five boxes of records and potentially as many more.

A former Ohio State University student said he warned the school more than 20 years ago about the now-deceased doctor suspected of sexually assaulting dozens of students.

Steve Snyder-Hill called it his insurance policy: a letter he wrote to Ohio State University officials in the mid-1990s after he said Dr. Richard Strauss molested him during an exam at the student health center. 

Snyder-Hill could not immediately supply a copy of the letter, but he said both the school and a law firm handling the Strauss investigation told him they have documentation of his complaint.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray got a boost today from Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren — who many progressives idolize and many conservatives demonize. 

Warren appeared with Cordray, the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which she created under President Obama. She told the crowd at the Newport Theater near Ohio State University that Cordray is on the side of students and hard-working Ohioans.

Ohio State University is piloting a project that could provide more food and jobs to the cities that need them.

Kip Curtis, an assistant professor at the Mansfield campus, helped build the first micro-farm there last year in a parking lot.

Curtis believes expanding micro-farms throughout Mansfield can help combat certain issues.
