    On a lush hilltop deep in Southern Ohio, a giant snake slithers through the grass, its intentions a mystery. Despite more than a century of study, we still don't know who built the Great Serpent Mound, or why. That's part of what makes a visit here so fascinating, and also a little bit frustrating. There are still questions that can't be answered through a Google search or more than a century of research. This much is known: At 1,348 feet long, the serpent is the largest effigy mound in the world -- that is, an earthen creation in the shape...

    Full Title: Hick and Kasich take their bromance to CNN to introduced their bipartisan model to working stuff out Gov. John Hickenlooper joined BFF and Ohio Gov. John Kasich on a CNN segment released Friday to discuss why the two have decided to join forces to show Democrats and Republicans can be friends. Speaking to CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour, Kasich, a Republican, claims the two are just “hanging out,” which he said is what happens when you “click with somebody.” And again, this is CNN, not an anonymous People magazine item about celebrities “stepping out.” He downplayed the potential for...

    Serial fibber Brian Williams told yet another whopper on Friday night from his home in MSNBC exile known as The 11th Hour with Brian Williams. So what else is new? What makes his latest historical untruth ironically special is it came as Williams along with historian Michael Beschloss were fact checking President Donald Trump for a supposed error he made during his speech at a rally in Lebanon, Ohio on Friday. For years following the Civil War, many historians as well as much of the public in general discounted the military abilities of General Ulysses S. Grant by claiming he was able...

    Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, announced Thursday he plans to mount an anti-establishment run for speaker of the House -- presuming Republicans keep control of the chamber. “Should the American people entrust us with the majority again in the 116th Congress, I plan to run for Speaker of the House to bring real change to the House of Representatives," Jordan said in a statement.

    A now-former Ohio University student senator was charged Monday by the OU Police Department with three counts of “making false alarms,” after reporting that she had received a series of threatening messages, including a death threat targeting her as an LGBTQ person. After Anna Ayers, 21, of Ligonier, Pennsylvania, reported that she had received those threatening messages two weeks ago, the OU Police investigated her claims and found that she had “placed the messages herself, prior to reporting them,” according to an OU Police news release issued early Monday evening. Ayers resigned form her position on Student Senate as Senate’s...

    Here we go. Another high energy Rally for tonight @ 7pm EDT. Lebanon, OH. I'm not quite sure why Trump is going here, except maybe because of the 12th District where it's close. The Senate looks like a lost cause, and we're down in the Governorship by around 6 pts. Did you know? Governor's Race: Richard Cordray (D) vs Mike Devine (R) so far it's Cordray by 6 12th District Troy Balderson (R) vs Danny O'Conner (D) so far it's a tie. Balderson eeked out a win in the primary. Where is the mailman's son? Who is he endorsing? Senate...

    Two more of President Donald Trump’s conservative judicial nominees may be confirmed to important U.S. circuit court positions soon. The U.S. Senate is considering Chad Readler and Eric Murphy for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals – a move that is setting off alarms for abortion activists. The pro-abortion website Mother Jones reports Readler and Murphy both have “strong” pro-life histories in the legal system. And the Sixth Circuit could soon hear several important cases involving abortion clinic regulations. Their nominations are “worrisome to pro-choice advocates who fear this may be the court that helps overturn Roe v. Wade,” according...

Trump could address a number of topics during the rally, including his recent Oval Office meeting with rapper Kanye West and first lady Melania Trump’s much-buzzed-about interview with ABC News, as well as the upcoming elections and the recent, bruising confirmation battle over newly minted Sup

    There is no limit on how many people Vallourec, a global manufacturing company with a steel pipe mill here in the Valley, could hire right now, said Chris Allen, the company’s talent acquisition manager for North America. “We don’t have enough [workers] and we won’t have enough,” Allen said. “Our [hiring] number is infinite right now.” That demand is no doubt driven partly by the boom in oil and natural gas, one of the primary industries Vallourec serves, but there are other issues at play that other Valley manufacturing companies are experiencing, too. “We could use 20 more [employees] right...

    Buckeye Firearms has highlighted a case of judicial activism in Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court is proposing to change the rules on the confiscation and return of firearms in Ohio, particularly in cases involving orders of protection.  Sean Maloney, a firearms attorney, has written an analysis of the proposed changes in the rules in Ohio.  Many of the rules make changes that the Ohio legislature specifically refused to implement.  From Sean Maloney's analysis: Accordingly, Appellate Courts have consistently held that, an order to surrender firearms to police absent a “sufficient nexus,” is an abuse of discretion when no evidence...

    Republican candidates are poised to hold onto five key Ohio seats in the U.S. House of Representatives just four weeks before the midterm elections. Those five seats currently held by Republicans in the 1st, 10th, 12th, 14th, and 15th Congressional Districts are among the 61 seats currently held by the GOP across the country that Breitbart News identified in July as “must-win” in order for Republicans to maintain a one-seat majority in the House of Representatives. (In addition, the GOP must flip three Democrat-held seats). In the subsequent two and a half months, changes in circumstances have now placed all...

    The largest city named for Christopher Columbus has called off its observance of the divisive holiday that honors the explorer, making a savvy move to tie the switch to a politically safe demographic: veterans. Ohio's capital city, population 860,000, will be open for business Monday after observing Columbus Day probably "for as long as it had been in existence," said Robin Davis, a spokeswoman for Democratic Mayor Andrew Ginther. City offices will close instead on Veterans Day, which falls on Nov. 12 this year. Native Americans and allied groups have long used Columbus Day to elevate issues of concern to...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Governor John Kasich (R-OH) said President Donald Trump and Republicans confirming Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States Brett Kavanaugh would be “a short-term win.” Kasich said, “I’m not happy about the process.” He continued, “Let me tell you what I’m particularly worried about; our leaders need to stop playing a zero-sum game, like flipping a coin. I win, you lose. Leaders need to figure out how to bring people together. They can have a victory but can’t leave the person who loses advantage wish vanquished, any tactic is acceptable,...

I'm not so sure, because if their message is abolish ICE and things like that, if -- they're not going to have a big wave," Kasich said on CNN's "State of the Union." "The natural progression of things is, when the president's in two years out, the other party does well," he said. "I don't know how big the wave is going to be," the governor said. "So we got to see what happens in November, but then we...

    COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Authorities found a body in a nature preserve Thursday in southwest Ohio, but it was an investigation they were able to close quickly. That’s because the “body” was a life-size sex doll in a garbage bag. Hamilton County engineers were in Richardson Forest Preserve when they spotted from a distance what they thought was a body, the Dayton Daily New reports. According to WCPO Channel 9, the doll had been abandoned on a hillside and investigators initially had trouble getting to the site.

    BOWLING GREEN—Recently uncovered Facebook posts by Aidan Hubbell-Staeble, the Democrat candidate for Ohio’s 3rd House District, reveal that he has described police officers as “murderers,” “monsters” and even as a “death squad.” He also shared a Facebook post earlier this year that alluded to law enforcement as being racist. Hubbell-Staeble’s comments, posted over the past three years, appear to have been deleted from his personal Facebook account shortly after being nominated for the 3rd District seat by the Wood County Democratic Party. The 3rd District covers all of Wood County. “Our police officers are heroes who deserve respect, but Aidan...

    The manhunt for a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened to “put a bullet” in President Trump’s head has finally ended, officials said Friday. Shawn Richard Christy, 26, surrendered after being tracked down to a ravine just north of Route 30 in Mansfield, Ohio, about 4:30 p.m., just three hours after the day’s search began, officials said at a press conference. “He was captured with a firearm on him and the FBI is processing that and he going to be facing further charges on that firearm,” U.S. Marshal Brian Fitzgibbon said.

    Agents with the OIU had began investigating Twenty Two Fifty, Inc. which is also known as Sharky's in May of 2017. During the investigation, agents say they were able to buy drugs and lap dances by using food stamps. During the five-month long investigation, agents exchanged more than $2,000 worth of food stamps to buy heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, cocaine, methamphetamine and lap dances. Criminal charges were filed against employees and patrons for drug trafficking, food stamp trafficking, aggravated shipment and distribution of heroin, engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity and illegal sexual activity.
