Attention Cleveland-area Concealed Carry Reform supporters: Jim Trakas, Republican Representative in House District 17, is under attack.

Voting 4-3 Wednesday, the court vacated the sentence of Tony Gross, who was convicted of...

Maureen O'Connor Shines in Debate against Black

Current Lt. Gov. Maureen O'Connor and Democrat Tim Black, candidates for Ohio Supreme Court, were entertaining last night as they sparred on a live statewide television forum.
