    The mother of the man who allegedly plowed into a group of people protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in Virginia said she knew her son was attending a rally -- but she thought it was a rally for President Trump, not for white nationalists. In an interview Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio, with The Associated Press, Samantha Bloom said of her son James Alex Fields Jr., "I just knew he was going to a rally. I mean, I try to stay out of his political views. You know, we don't, you know, I don't really get too involved, I...

    FINDLAY, OH (WTOL) - A ground breaking ceremony Tuesday in Findlay marked yet another step in an effort to bring more jobs to northwest Ohio. Campbell's Soup is officially the second tenant of the new Tall Timbers West Industrial Park in Findlay.

The facility is a 700,000 square-foot distribution center, costing $44 million. Campbell's chose the site due to its proximity to other facilities in Willard and Napoleon, along with improvements to I-75. "And...

    Ohio insurers want big premium hikes next year for individual health care policies in the Affordable Care Act market, with typical average increases of 20 percent or more. Their rate requests have not yet been granted, but federal and state filings show the extent of the hikes insurers say they want -- and need -- because of expectations of costs for medical care, prescription drugs and the premiums necessary to cover these and other expenses. Insurers say they base their requests on how things went this year and last, and their projections for 2018. These rate requests, and requests in...
  • Hubbard, Ohio factory owner says she has jobs but few sober applicants

    HUBBARD, Ohio – An Ohio factory owner said Saturday that though she has blue-collar jobs available at her company, she struggles to fill positions because so many candidates fail drug tests. Regina Mitchell, a co-owner of Warren Fabricating & Machining in Hubbard, Ohio, told The New York Times this week that four out of 10 applicants otherwise qualified to be welders, machinists and crane operators will fail a routine drug test. In an interview Saturday with CNN’s Michael Smerconish, Mitchell said that her requirements for prospective workers were simple. “I need employees who are engaged in their work while here,...

    SHEFFIELD LAKE — Firefighters came to the rescue of an East Lake Road woman when they cut the head off her pet boa constrictor that had wrapped around her neck and was biting her face. The Fire Department would not release the name of the woman but said she was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening. In a 911 call about 2 p.m. Thursday, the woman identifies herself as a 45-year-old who has 11 snakes — all ball pythons, except the two boa constrictors she had rescued Wednesday. She told the dispatcher that the other boa constrictor...

    YOUNGSTOWN - When the voice on the other end of the phone said the president of the United States wanted to meet him, Geno DiFabio, a 54-year-old lifelong resident of the South Side, was skeptical. It wasn’t a completely unreasonable possibility. Just that morning, DiFabio had appeared on a Fox News show to discuss why he, a lifelong Democrat, switched parties to throw his support fully behind then-candidate Donald Trump. The voice – a White House communications official – convinced DiFabio that the call was legitimate, and they set a time to meet ahead of the president’s rally at the...

    The 18-year-old man killed Wednesday when a thrill ride broke apart at the Ohio State Fair had joined the Marines less than a week before the tragedy. The Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the lone person who was killed Thursday as Tyler Jarrell of Columbus. Seven others, who ranged in age from 14 to 42 years old, were injured when the Fire Ball ride malfunctioned and sent riders flying into the air. The Marine Corps said in a statement that Jarrell, 18, enlisted on July 21 and wanted to be in the infantry or serve as a combat engineer. He...

    First Lady Melania Trump brought a feminine touch to President Donald Trump’s Youngstown, Ohio, presidential rally in a pink-patterned dress. Melania, who often chooses the most luxurious designers to wear, played up her girly side in a floral, pink-patterned Monique Lhuillier frock with pale pink suede Christian Louboutin pointed stilettos. The dress is already sold out online. To top the look off, Melania wore her hair in loose waves with a center-part and opted for nothing more than her wedding rock and square black sunglasses.

    This town was on fire. By 1 in the afternoon on Tuesday every main thoroughfare in downtown Youngstown was filled with happy people heading towards the Covelli Centre. Folks dressed in red, white and blue crisscrossed the main grids as vendors sold “Make America Great Again” ball caps, American flags and bottles of water. Thousands had filled the gravel parking lot to wait until the doors opened at 4, license plates revealing they had traveled as far as Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to see the president speak directly to them in this Rust Belt city. Music played on...

    Donald Trump is scheduled to appear in Youngstown Tuesday. That's Youngstown, seat of Mahoning County, which, albeit by a tiny margin, voted for Hillary Clinton last November. That's also the Mahoning County that, since 1932, has only voted twice for a Republican for president: Richard M. Nixon (by about 1,700 votes) in 1972, and Dwight D. Eisenhower (by about 4,900 votes, in 1956). And only twice since 1950 has Mahoning County supported Republicans for the U.S. Senate - George V. Voinovich, for re-election, in 2004, and Rob Portman, also for re-election, last November. (Election data are from Mike Dawson's peerless...

    VIENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – If you’re looking for work, you take advantage when opportunity knocks. And right now, opportunity is knocking at Starr Manufacturing in Vienna. Starr Manufacturing is looking for production workers — a position that used to be known as a laborer. The description still fits. “If somebody comes in and they’re bright and they’re willing to work, we’re willing to train them to move up,” said Rich Rodemoyer, a manager at Starr. It’s a plus to have experience with plate and structural steel but it’s not required. An applicant should have experience with basic tools and know...
  • Rob Portman for US Senate - Repealing Obamacare (Portman campaigns on repeal/replace in 2016)

    07/20/2017 8:35:10 AM PDT · by xzins · 26 replies ^ | 2016 | Rob Portman
    Senator Rob Portman believes that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced with reforms that will actually lower costs and improve the quality of our health care. According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the health care law the Democrats shoved through Congress in 2009 will slow economic growth over the next decade, cost 2.5 million jobs, and contribute a trillion dollars to the deficit. The Obamacare rollout has been disastrous, filled with technical glitches and poor management. But the problems with the Obamacare law are much worse than a just few glitches. President Obama promised that if you liked your...

    Taylor Communications in October is expected to start moving nearly 600 workers into an underutilized downtown office tower, which local shops, restaurants and residential property owners hope will be a boon for business. The city of Dayton today is expected to approve a $1 million development agreement with Taylor — formerly Standard Register — to help fund the renovation of the building at 111 W. First St. so the company can relocate employees from its current home on Albany Street on Dayton’s west side. The company has agreed to lease space in the building for at least 10 years and...
