COLUMBUS (AP) - Ohio news organizations and the Ohio Coalition for Open Government collaborated on an audit to gauge access to public records in Ohio. The goal was to replicate an audit the coalition conducted 10 years ago to see if compliance with public records requests had improved.
Journalists from newspaper, television and radio stations throughout the state were recruited to serve as auditors in all 88 Ohio counties. The audit began April 21 and, in most counties, was completed within several days.
To ensure consistency, journalists were trained in how to phrase records requests and how to record their findings.
The auditors were assigned to locations where they would not be recognized, and they did not identify themselves as journalists when making requests so they would have the same experience as a typical citizen seeking public records.

LIME CITY - A kitten is being credited with saving the lives of a Perrysburg Township family from a fire that destroyed their manufactured home Monday morning.
"They had a kitten, that unfortunately perished in the fire, but it was scratching at the face of one of the daughters," said Perrysburg Township Fire Chief Tom Brice of the incident.
Fire crews were called at 6:31 a.m. to Perrysburg Estates, in the 23000 block of Lime City Road, on the report of a manufactured home fire.
Mutual aid was requested from Perrysburg City and Rossford fire departments, and a medic unit was additionally called from Middleton Township.
Upon arriving on-scene, Brice said "there was heavy smoke and fire coming from one of the trailer windows."

ROSSFORD - The proposed roundabout at the intersection of Buck and Lime City roads near Penta Career Center has to go around the grant application process again.
Rossford City Councilman Robert Ruse, who has represented the city during the multiparty discussions about the controversial project, said at Monday's city council meeting that because of a change in the way the pool of grant funds is being handled, the project must apply for grant money again, though he and others involved are optimistic that it will be approved again.
Ruse explained that the funds from the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program are now going to be distributed through a state entity.

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township gave its OK to an expansion of FedEx's distribution center which will create new jobs.
The expansion, planned when the $90 million center was built in 2009, will boost employment by an estimated 22 full-time positions and require another 145 part-time workers, said Jack Hilbert of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, the legal firm representing FedEx.
The company was also represented by engineers Monday as the township's Zoning Commission unanimously gave conditional approval to the project, which consists mostly of parking and loading areas.
FedEx will also purchase a nearby land parcel and fill a detention pond, allowing space for another planned expansion sometime in the future.
