AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio wildlife workers had to fend off an attacking mother falcon while trying to take her chicks from a nest on the ledge of a downtown Akron building.

The peregrine falcon named Chesapeake screeched and swooped on the Ohio Department of Natural Resources staffers who were trying to take the two chicks from a nesting box on an 11th -floor ledge to band them this week.

Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1pCJK3n) reports that the bird even drew blood with her talons from the ODNR's Bryan Kay.

TROTWOOD, Ohio (AP) — Police say a large fight at a southwest Ohio high school led to a brief lockdown and the arrest of 23 students.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/SXFTDn ) reports that the fight Thursday morning at Trotwood-Madison High School near Dayton ended with all 23 students involved facing misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges.

Police and the school system said in a statement that the fight started over accusations about students possessing items stolen from other students. It was broken up within minutes, and one minor injury was reported.

In addition to the criminal charges, all the students were suspended for violating the district's student code of conduct. They also may face expulsion.

CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio lawmaker accused of misleading investors about a company's financial status and using their money for personal gain was in court again Thursday.

At a short hearing in Hamilton County court, Judge John Andrew West set a July 28 hearing for Rep. Pete Beck of Mason.

Beck's trial is set for Nov. 17.

The 61-year-old Beck, who was indicted in July, is accused of being part of an enterprise that misled investors, laundered money and improperly diverted investors' money.

Beck has pleaded not guilty to the charges and denies involvement.

Ohio family settles over kidney thrown in trash

TOLEDO, Ohio — A family that sued after a nurse tossed a healthy kidney in the trash during a transplant has settled its lawsuit against an Ohio hospital for $650,000.
A patient, Sarah Fudacz, who was 24 at the time, was to receive her brother’s kidney in 2012 but awoke without having undergone surgery because the nurse had accidentally thrown it out.
Fudacz later received a different kidney but the family sued the University of Toledo Medical Center, claiming medical negligence.
In a settlement approved Wednesday by the Court of Claims of Ohio, the money will be split among Fudacz and her brother along with their parents.
The Toledo family said the mistake deeply affected their lives and that the kidney Fudacz later received isn’t a perfect match, meaning it will not last as long as her brother’s would have.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — State health officials urging Ohioans to ensure they’re vaccinated for measles and mumps say graduation celebrations and summer travel can be opportunities for such diseases to spread if people don’t take preventative measures.
At least 396 cases of mumps have been confirmed in an outbreak of the contagious viral illness in central Ohio.
The total has grown to 164 cases for a separate measles outbreak that began among Amish who had traveled to the Philippines, which has had an epidemic of the respiratory illness. One-hundred of those cases are in Knox County.
The Ohio Department of Health says it has distributed more than 13,000 doses of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine to fight the measles outbreak. Officials say local health departments have administered more than 8,000 of those doses so far.
