Noon news headlines for Dec. 12, 2012
Turnpike leak says ODOT will take charge of toll-road, official announcement of Governor's plan coming on Thursday

  • Cincinnati lawyer disbarred for diverting charity money
  • Turnpike leak puts ODOT in charge of toll-road
    After months of speculation it looks like the Governor will NOT try to privatize the Ohio Turnpike, according to information leaked to the Columbus Dispatch.

    The news comes one day ahead of Gov. Kasich’s official announcement tomorrow when he is expected to unveil results of a $3.4 million dollar private study of turnpike options.   

    The most likely changes, according to the leak, is that the Ohio Department of Transportation will take over much of the daily operation of the toll-road from the independent Ohio Turnpike Commission.

    And that tolls will go up.

    Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern calls Kasich’s plan a raid on the assets of the Ohio Turnpike.


    NASA Glenn to test Wright flyer for memorial 
    NASA Glenn in Cleveland will be testing a model of the original Wright Brothers flyer as part of plans to erect a memorial to the inventors in Dayton. 

    The $12 million dollar project to honor the pair’s role in history calls for a replica of the fragile aircraft to sit atop a 250 foot tower.

    NASA will test extreme wind and ice conditions to help designers build a replica flyer able to withstand Ohio’s year-round weather.


    Cincinnati lawyer disbarred for diverting charity money
    The Ohio Supreme Court has permanently disbarred a Cincinnati attorney convicted of stealing $9 million that a deceased client had meant to go to charities.

    The court found that former attorney Robert Leon Schwartz's actions show he shouldn't be allowed to practice law.

    Schwartz used much of the $13 million left behind by his client on himself and on homes for friends and family, instead of distributing it to charities as she had instructed.

    At his sentencing, Schwartz apologized and said he had dishonored his profession.
