    Just four days after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, and the video sparked protests across the country, Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz welcomed in a few dozen African American community leaders to talk at One Government Center. Mayor Kapszukiewicz acknowledged that Toledo is 652 miles away from Minneapolis, where the incident happened that resulted in Floyd's death. But he said the video made him sick to his stomach and he made a long-term commitment to opening up communication, and having difficult conversations like he had. In front of the Safety Building after the meeting, the mayor...

Police responded by using tear gas to push the crowd back. The crowd let up, but an hour later the protest escalated when demonstrators smashed windows at the Ohio Statehouse while some went inside the building. SWAT arrived on the scene soon after...

    A sobering note: #WineWithDeWine, the daily 2 p.m. coronavirus briefing held by Gov. Mike DeWine, is getting shorter and becoming less frequent...This week, for instance, there were only two briefings, and instead of 90 minutes, each lasted just an hour -- with 30 minutes of announcements and just 30 minutes for reporters questions...Journalists would love DeWine, Acton and Husted to answer questions each day. However, reporters have been grumbling in recent weeks that they are frequently evading questions, answering the question they wish they would have been asked, and using other rhetorical tactics of seasoned politicians.

    Ohio Governor DeWine, Director of Health Acton and Lt. Governor Husted started handling the Coronavirus outbreak with faulty modeling, while ignoring critical real-time data. Now the trio suppresses critical data. Ohioans: aware, enraged and bracing to fight for the truth. The backdrop: COVID-19 first made an indelible mark on Ohioans when Governor Mike DeWine canceled the 2020 Arnold Sports Festival, which was schedule to start March 5. On March 16, Governor DeWine backed a lawsuit seeking to postpone the primary election scheduled for the next day. The suit was filed by Ohioans who feared voting in person would expose voters...

Although Nadler, as chairman of the HouseJudiciaryCommittee, helped lead theimpeachmentfight against Trump last year, a C-SPAN video clip from 2004 shows the New Yorker speaking out strongly against paper-based ballots during a Capitol Hill hearing. At the hearing -- in which lawmakers examined perceived voting problems in an Ohio election -- a member of the public spoke in support of paper ballots, later citing research by the...

    Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday that his athletic department has run several social distancing models to consider having fans in the stands at games this fall, and Ohio Stadium, with a normal capacity of more than 100,000, would hold a crowd closer to 20,000-22,000 fans and up to 40,000-50,000 "if guidelines are relaxed." "We've played with that a little bit as a framework to start as we move forward and think about what we'd ultimately be allowed to do," Smith told reporters before later clarifying the low-end estimate in a tweet. "We're fortunate, with 100,000 seats in...

    The ruling says the state's top health official exceeded her statutory authority by ordering "nonessential" businesses to close. Ohio's COVID-19 lockdown is illegal, a state judge ruled today, because it exceeds the powers granted by the statute under which it was imposed. Responding to a May 8 lawsuit filed by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law on behalf of 35 gyms, Lake County Court of Common Pleas Judge Eugene Lucci enjoined Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton from penalizing the plaintiffs or similar businesses for violating the lockdown, provided "they operate in compliance with all applicable safety regulations."

    One of the candidates seeking to unseat Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in Ohio's 4th Congressional District election had to suspend his campaign after the Lorain County Board of Elections rejected his petitions to appear on the ballot after thousands of signatures were found to be illegible.

He was required to submit 2,458 signatures to appear on the ballot. Circulators filed 3,065 signatures on 140 petitions Gibbs' his behalf. The board found a majority of the signatures, 1,790, were invalid, with only...

Evidence discovered at her home the day of her funeral raised the possibility Clark fabricated portions of her past, giving rise to a new element of the Georgie legend," reports "While the theory is discounted by several associates, there is a faction of friends who are puzzled by connections that suggest Clark was in fact Bessie Hyde, who vanished in 1928 along with her husband, Glen Hyde, while the Idaho couple were on a honeymoon adventure floating the Grand Canyon in a wooden...
