LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Last year was a good one for the Ohio-built Chevrolet Cruze.

Sales of the General Motors compact increased by 4.4 percent in 2013, according to The Vindicator newspaper (http://bit.ly/1f0xyZ6 ). The car is built in the GM plant in Lordstown, near Youngtown in northeast Ohio.

The overall increase came despite a 14.5-percent decrease in sales in December, according to figures released Friday. The Cruze sold 18,162 units last month, compared with 21,230 during the same period a year ago.

But sales of the Cruze for the year registered 248,224 units — 10,466 more than in 2012.

The Cruze is Chevrolet's second best-selling vehicle behind the Silverado pickup truck.

GM's overall sales also were up for the year.

Identical triplets born to central Indiana couple

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A central Indiana couple is adjusting to life with their newborn identical triplet girls.

Avery, Cassidy and Bentley Doss were born Monday at St. Vincent Women's Hospital in Indianapolis. Parents Amanda and Chad Doss of Franklin tell The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1bDtUML ) that the girls are doing well, but will probably be in the hospital for eight weeks.

They say the triplets were conceived without assistance after Chad had a vasectomy reversed. Amanda learned in June she was pregnant and an ultrasound in October showed she was carrying triplets.

Avery weighed 3 pounds, 15 ounces; Bentley 4 pounds, 3 ounces; and Cassidy 3 pounds, 11 ounces.

Experts put the odds of identical triplets being born without fertility drugs at from 1-in-1-million to 1-in-100-million.

Bankruptcy judge reviews new deals to pay off Detroit debt

DETROIT (AP) — A judge overseeing Detroit's bankruptcy is considering a recent agreement to pay off banks and settle millions of dollars in debt tied to an interest rate swap deal.

A hearing continues Friday that examines the proposal reached last month to terminate the swaps deal for $165 million. The payoff had been $220 million, and Judge Steven Rhodes ordered the city to seek a better deal with the banks.

Detroit pledged casino tax revenue in 2009 as collateral to avoid defaulting on past pension debt payments. The swaps allowed Detroit to get fixed interest rates on pension bonds with UBS and Bank of America.

The city also has agreed to lower a financing loan to pay the banks.

Detroit's two pension systems contend the new deal is still too costly.

Wilmington College boots fraternity for hazing incident

WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) — A fraternity at a southwest Ohio college has been kicked off campus following what officials said was a Halloween hazing incident that ended in a pledge requiring surgery for an injury.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1iyKdmt ) reports that Wilmington College said it will never again recognize Gamma Phi Gamma as a campus organization.

The Quaker college of about 1,000 students southeast of Dayton acted after an Oct. 30 fraternity ceremony. Clinton County Municipal Court records said the pledge was injured when he was struck with a towel "fashioned as a weapon" and then needed surgery to have a testicle removed.

College spokesman Randy Sarvis said the fraternity unsuccessfully appealed the suspension. It can make a final appeal to college President Jim Reynolds, but it wasn't clear if that would happen.

Frigid weather hits Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Bundle up, Ohio.

In the wake of the first winter storm of 2014, the state is expected to see its coldest temperatures in years.

Temperatures were in single digits to start the day throughout the state Friday, with wind chills well below zero. Forecasters say wind chills in Cleveland could dip as low as 20-below.

After a warm up into double digits Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will dive back down, with highs throughout the state from only 0 to 5 for Monday. And it'll stay bitterly cold through most of next week.

Some counties are still cleaning up from the storm that blew through Thursday, leaving 4 to 6 inches of new snow.

But the northeast U.S. is getting the brunt, with around 2 feet of snow in some areas.
