  • Fire scorches 35 acres in Bedford Reservation
  • Steelworker will challenge Boehner in 2014 
  • Fired worker returns with weapons 
  • Business owners are optimistic that economy will grow in 2013
    Ohio business owners are more optimistic about economic growth than they were six months ago according to a survey by PNC bank. The Columbus Dispatch reports that economists say fears of the fiscal cliff and the uncertainties surrounding the November election stymied business growth late in 2012. Small and medium-size businesses owners in the survey felt Ohio’s economy is doing better than the overall national economy. But the survey showed that fewer employers plan to increase hiring in the next six months.

    Steelworker will challenge Boehner in 2014 
    A steelworker and union official is launching a campaign to unseat House Speaker John Boehner's western Ohio district. Thirty-seven-year-old Democrat Andrew Hounshell kicks off his campaign tonight in the heavily Republican 8th district.  This will be his first run for public office. Boehner has handily won re-elections since winning the seat in 1990. 

    Fired worker returns with weapons 
    An Ohio man recently fired from his job has been arrested after police say he showed up at the company with weapons. Ottawa County deputies arrested 20-year-old Kyle Kovac after he was spotted yesterday at Northern Manufacturing with two knives, an air pistol and a large stick. Employees at the company in Oak Harbor, near Port Clinton, said they saw Kovac walking around the property in camouflage clothing with a knife. Deputies found the other weapons in his car.

    Fire scorches 35 acres in Bedford Reservation
    Firefighters had to toil for about two hours to put a brush fire in a Cleveland-area park that ended up consuming 35 acres. The fire at Bedford Reservation on Thursday night started in a field. The field borders a residential neighborhood, but the fire didn't reach it. There were no injuries. The cause hasn't been determined. The investigation is continuing today.
