The state’s top law enforcement official is urging communities to take advantage of all the programs available to help them fight the heroin epidemic in all parts of Ohio.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says the heroin unit in his office can help communities with equipment, staff and information to get bigger drug dealers off the street. But he says, so far, only a few have taken advantage of that service.

Ohio’s attorney general has launched a new program to try to protect the state’s businesses from being victimized by internet hackers.

The key part of Attorney General Mike DeWine’s new CyberOhio Initiative involves an advisory board, composed of business leaders and tech experts.

A top Ohio Republican leader who’s supporting Donald Trump says he hopes Gov. John Kasich will change his mind about the GOP presidential nominee.

Senate President Keith Faber, a Celina Republican, campaigned for John Kasich before he was the last candidate to drop out in May. Faber says Trump wasn’t his candidate, but he is his nominee – and he hopes Kasich will see it the same way soon, as Kasich’s former presidential opponent Senator Ted Cruz has.
