    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 10/19/2017 | Joe Newby
    On Monday, the Wapakoneta Daily News in Ohio published a photo of President Trump that had been edited to give the president what can only be seen as a “Hitler-style” mustache, angering a number of people. The paper later apologized, claiming that it “would never intentionally” insult the president. According to the apology, the edit was characterized as “sloppy.” “The Wapakoneta Daily News regrets the image of President Donald Trump published on Page 1A of Monday’s newspaper,” Deb Zweb wrote. Zweb added: "While we edit photos on a daily basis, this particular photo was edited in a sloppy manner to...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A manhunt is underway in Ohio for a suspect in the shooting deaths of four people including a 7-year-old boy, whose body was apparently hidden in a home where the others were also found, authorities said. Warrants were issued Thursday afternoon for 23-year-old Arron Lawson for three counts of murder and one count of aggravated murder, as the search for the suspect focused on a wooded area near the southern tip of the state. Lawrence County sheriff's deputies found the bodies of three adults inside a house trailer Wednesday evening. While at the scene, they were...
  • Cleveland Businessman Allan Jones Pulls NFL Ads After National Anthem Snub

    Cleveland businessman Allan Jones has instructed his advertising firm to halt commercials during NFL games after the Tennessee Titans and other teams snubbed the National Anthem. He instructed an official of the Tombras group, "Effective immediately, please remove all commercials for Check into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, or U.S. Money Shops from airing during NFL games this entire season. "Our companies will not condone in any form the unpatriotic behavior demonstrated by the NFL." "For the 29 states we operate in, this isn't much for them, but it's a lot for us. The Tombras group is our ad...

    On Friday, the Ohio Department of Health released the 2016 Ohio Abortion Report, revealing a decrease in the number of abortions last year. This marks the lowest level since 1976, when record-keeping first began. A total of 20,672 abortions were reported. “This report is further proof of how successful the pro-life movement has been in Ohio” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “This past year alone, we saw 304 lives saved from the pain and suffering of abortion. We continue to advance groundbreaking legislation to protect the unborn, and we thank Governor John Kasich and the Ohio...

    As National Football League owners are walking on the eggshells left by kneeling players versus the fans, one would think, going forward that words, would be carefully chosen as not to further imperil team and league bottom lines. Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert might have been hoping his star player's Twitter feud with the President of the United States would die down before the start of the National Basketball Association season. It didn't turn out that way.

    Geauga County Sheriff Scott Hildenbrand on Sept. 25 issued a notification restricting all deputy sheriffs from accepting any off-duty work at National Football League games. He said the ongoing controversy involving professional sports players not standing for the National Anthem, and their team and league management apparently backing them, is the reason why. "Yesterday I attended the Browns game in Indianapolis with some friends. The stadium was almost full with 70,000 fans in attendance. During the National Anthem at least 21 Browns players kneeled as the entire stadium, made up of all races, ages, sex, religion and careers stood and...

    To cleanse the palate, I think he means “education” in terms of civic education, i.e. familiarity with policy and the candidates’ backgrounds, not grade-level achieved. It’d be weird if he didn’t since James himself famously skipped college after being drafted number one out of high school. Still, how often do you get to watch a mega-star athlete call the voters of his home state ignorant? This’ll be an interesting test to see if there’s anything Ohio’s favorite son can say or do to piss off his fans. Besides committing to play for another team at the end of a...

Her 17-year-old daughter was hospitalized with two fractures in her left leg.

    The following information is the first article, of a series of articles, about Shale Crescent USA’s plan to bring an estimated 100,000 manufacturing jobs, over the next eight years, to the Mid-Ohio Valley. Shale Crescent USA Director Greg Kozera says his company has a goal of creating many high paying jobs for the Mid-Ohio Valley (MOV), and he wants to tell Morgan County Herald readers about it. Kozera explains that a little over two years ago, while at an energy conference in Virginia, Governor Terry McAuliffe was clearly excited about planned pipelines that would bring Marcellus and Utica gas to...

    LUCASVILLE, Ohio — The Latest on the scheduled execution of a contemned Ohio killer (all times local): 8:55 a.m. The Ohio Supreme Court says it won't hear an appeal from a condemned killer who argues he shouldn't be put to death because of his age at the time of the crime. The court declined to halt a scheduled 10 a.m. Wednesday execution in a decision released about two hours before. Lawyers for death row inmate Gary Otte (OH'-tee) wanted the court to apply the ruling of a Kentucky court last month that found the death penalty unconstitutional for people who...

    The Cincinnati Business Courier ^ | September 1, 2017 | Tom Demeropolis
    Paycor Inc., one of the largest and fastest-growing companies in Greater Cincinnati, will bring an expected 1,000 additional jobs to its home state. In December 2016, Paycor received approval for a 3.1 percent, 15-year job creation tax credit from the Ohio Tax Credit Authority to create 1,064 jobs with a total payroll of more than $76.6 million. At the time, the Norwood-based payroll and human resource services provider hadn’t decided where those jobs would be located. Now, more than eight months later, the company has decided it will expand its existing headquarters in Norwood. The expansion will more than double...

    In one of the more bizarre stories to hit national news this week, an Ohio sheriff's deputy is under investigation for shooting a local reporter who innocently set up a camera and tripod on a public sidewalk to document a routine traffic stop. What's more is the shooting took place in a small town where "everyone knows everybody" and the police officer and victim were actually friends.

Trump is expected to announce the end of the U.S. immigration policy started by the Obama administration, the Associated Press reported Sunday....

    Cleveland police and emergency services unions have declined an invitation from the NFL's Cleveland Browns to hold an American flag for the team's season opener after some Browns players knelt for the national anthem during a preseason game. EMS union president Daniel Nemeth told Fox 8 Cleveland on Friday that the offer to participate in a pregame ceremony sounded great until a dozen Browns players refused to stand for the anthem, in support of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

    The Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved a tax incentive package Wednesday for Silfex, an Eaton-based firm that plans to create as many as 400 new jobs and invest $223 million in Springfield. The state board approved a deal that’s expected to create $20.7 million in additional payroll as part a 12-year, about 2 percent credit on its Ohio employee payroll taxes. The company would be required to maintain operations in Springfield for at least 15 years to qualify for the incentives, according to public records obtained by the Springfield News-Sun. Silfex officials declined to comment but issued a statement saying...

    CANONSBURG, Pa.–West Virginia University researchers believe a Marcellus and Utica shale ethane storage hub could help create $36 billion in investment and more than 100,000 permanent jobs — some of which could occur at industrial sites left behind by Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel, Weirton Steel and Ormet Corp. During a Tuesday conference, WVU Energy Institute Director Brian Anderson said drillers throughout the region are now producing about 460,000 barrels of ethane per day — almost three times the total amount of ethane expected to be used per day at the Royal Dutch Shell ethane cracker set for Beaver County, Pa. and the...
