All f-g's should be killed or at least relocated," Dodds wrote in a message posted to the Columbus Pride Parade's Facebook page. In an email sent to NBC Out, a spokesperson for Columbus City Schools, Jacqueline Bryant, confirmed the district is "working toward the termination of Mr. Dodds for these highly inappropriate comments."

    CINCINNATI (AP) - Some people have questioned an Ohio church's decision to hand out the opioid reversal drug naloxone at a family festival. WLWT-TV reports ( ) Holy Family Catholic Church in Cincinnati's East Price Hill neighborhood partnered with the Ohio attorney general's office to distribute nearly 70 overdose kits last weekend. Parish operations manager Jeremy Bouer said providing the kits was the right thing to do because people need to be equipped to save lives when someone overdoses.

    Abortion activists dressed up in costumes from the dystopian show “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Tuesday to protest an Ohio bill that would protect unborn babies from brutal dismemberment abortions. Wearing red robes and white bonnets, abortion activists with the radical pro-abortion group NARAL sat silently during a Tuesday hearing about the bill, the BBC reports. Their silent protest compared abortion regulations to enslaving women, the central plot of the “Handmaid” series based on a novel by Margaret Atwood. In “The Handmaid’s Tale,” only a few women are fertile; those who are able to conceive are enslaved and forced to bear...

    During a short CNN broadcasted segment a panel of Ohio voters were asked about their impressions of fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to congress. Unfortunately for CNN the panel exhibits the oft undervalued common sense of the American electorate. This sample is representative of what I call ‘reverse-gruberism‘: People who are firmly grounded in ordinary common sense who can see through the obfuscation and BS of the professional political class.

    HILLSBORO, Ohio – As publisher and editor of the Times-Gazette, a small daily newspaper in this southwest Ohio town (pop. 6,600), I thought our endorsement of Donald Trump for president last year seemed innocuous enough. Then someone said to me, “Did you see that Rachel Maddow mentioned the Times-Gazette last night?” Seriously? Next, Politico called. I soon discovered that our two-sentence endorsement was being reported — and often ridiculed — far and wide. The nearby Cincinnati Enquirer produced a post headlined “This Ohio paper is one of only six to endorse Donald Trump.” Not one of six in Ohio —...

    On June 11, 2015, Women's Med Center in Dayton, Ohio committed an abortion on a woman who was unable to consent. According to a state report—which did not become public until last year—the woman (identified only as "Patient #1") was unable to hold a coherent conversation or even lift her head. Her speech was slurred, and according to the person who gave her a ride to the center, she "took two Soma and several Percocet and probably both Suboxone and perhaps some heroin on the way in." She was described as "semi-conscious with low blood pressure." Women's Med Center dutifully...

    One of the nation’s biggest health insurers says it will not return to Ohio’s public insurance exchanges next year, a decision that could open more holes in the Affordable Care Act’s increasingly thin system for helping people buy coverage. The move announced Tuesday by Anthem Inc. could leave shoppers in 20 counties without an option for buying individual coverage on the exchange unless another insurer steps in, according to data compiled by The Associated Press and the consulting firm Avalere. The exchanges are the only place where people can use an income-based tax credit to help cover the cost of...

    Anthem is exiting the ObamaCare marketplace in Ohio, leaving around 20 counties in the state without an insurer willing to sell a health plan in its exchange for 2018. The company cited uncertainty as a reason why it’s exiting the exchanges in all of the state’s counties, particularly the question of whether or not the Trump administration will continue payments to insurers that compensate them for reducing out-of-pocket costs for lower-income enrollees.

That, as you know, is naïve, as events in Ohio and other states demonstrate. We were encouraged this week, however, when the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari and agreed to hear a case related to Ohio’s efforts to maintain accurate voting rolls. The citizens of Ohio may yet see their right to clean and fair elections upheld. Clearly, dirty...

Cable company Charter Communications announced that they will be hiring 100 new employees at their Spectrum call center on Northpointe Drive, formerly known as Time Warner Cable. “When you hear of a call center you usually hear of a big city,” said Mike Hogan, Charter Communications spokesman. “I think it’s great for Zanesville because we are committed to bringing jobs to a smaller community.

    Attorney General Mike DeWine targeted five pharmaceutical companies in a sweeping lawsuit filed today, alleging misrepresentation and misinformation on their part in the growing American opiate addiction crisis. The companies are Janssen Pharmaceutical, Allergan, Purdue Pharma, Endo and Cephalon. "They are the most prominent," DeWine said of the defendants. "They constitute a majority of the drugs." He insisted that the companies played an active role in flooding the market with prescription painkillers, which led explicitly to addiction for untold numbers of Ohioans. A woman who lost her daughter to opiate addiction appeared with DeWine today, explaining to reporters how powerless...

    I think it was over Thanksgiving dinner. My mother's best friend, a dear woman who has been nothing but good to me, decided to poke some gentle fun, Dayton Ohio-style, at me. Actually, let me be more specific. It wasn't Dayton. The conversation took place in Kettering. It's a suburb of Dayton. A small suburb called Oakwood separates Dayton and Kettering. "Ted," my mom's friend began, "what's with these terrible descriptions of our city? The way you write, you'd think this was some bleak post-industrial wasteland." She motioned out the window to her manicured lawn, punctuated by a set of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House Speaker John Boehner says that aside from international affairs and foreign policy, President Donald Trump's time in office has so far been a "complete disaster." Speaking at an energy conference Thursday in Houston, Boehner praised Trump for his approach abroad and his aggressiveness in fighting Islamic State militants, according to the energy publication Rigzone. "Everything else he's done (in office) has been a complete disaster," the Ohio Republican said, according to the publication. "He's still learning how to be president." Boehner said he's been friends with Trump for 15 years, but still has a hard...
