WEST BEND, Wis. (AP) — Hundreds of people packed a Catholic church in a southeastern Wisconsin city to mourn the death of a Purdue University student who was killed in a campus classroom last week.

University President Mitch Daniels and fellow engineering students traveled from West Lafayette, Ind., for the funeral of Andrew Boldt, held at St. Francis Cabrini (kah-BREE'-nee) in West Bend Tuesday night.

Daniels says that as he learned more about Boldt and his family he realized "America doesn't have any finer people."

Teachers and friends from Boldt's former school, Marquette University High in Milwaukee, were among the mourners. WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1aHhr11 ) reports Marquette's president, Rev. Warren Sazama, urged those dealing with Boldt's death to come together as a community of faith in prayer.

Another Purdue engineering student, Cody Cousins, is charged with killing Boldt.

Woman acquitted in Ohio bicyclist's death

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio judge says there's not enough evidence to convict a driver who struck and killed a drunken bicycle rider.

Franklin County Municipal Court Judge H. William Pollitt Jr. on Tuesday acquitted 24-year-old Davenna Ferguson of vehicular manslaughter.

The judge said he couldn't say for sure that Ferguson wasn't telling the truth when she said she didn't see the bicyclist, 33-year-old Ernesto Galvez-Jacobo, before rear-ending him on a dark road in Columbus in May 2012.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1b3UTW7 ) reports that Galvez-Jacobo's blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit for driving a car or riding a bike. He also had marijuana in his system.

A city prosecutor had argued that Ferguson was responsible because she failed to maintain an assured clear distance.

Ohio issuing fewer replacement food-stamp cards

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The number of replacement food stamp cards issued by the state of Ohio is down — meaning fewer were lost, stolen and used fraudulently.

State data show Ohio issued 327,908 replacement electronic benefit cards in 2013, down 8 percent from 2012. During that period, participation in the program increased.

Food stamp benefits are uploaded monthly on benefit transfer cards, which are similar to debit cards and require a personal identification number.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1niH4rZ ) reports that some cards are legitimately damaged or lost to thieves. But some people sell or trade their cards on the streets or online for money or drugs.

State and federal agencies have vowed to crack down on food stamp fraud by more closely monitoring card replacement requests.

Students off again amid Ohio's wind chill warnings
Written by Associated Press   
Wednesday, 29 January 2014 07:36

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Some Ohio schools have another day of classes as wind chill advisories and warnings linger throughout much of the shivering state.

The National Weather Service had advisories in effect for much of Ohio until at least late Wednesday morning. Forecasters said wind chills could register around 20 degrees below zero near daybreak in some places, though temperatures were expected to rise a bit throughout the day.

Officials in Columbus canceled Wednesday classes at the state's largest school district. School officials in Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Youngstown and dozens of smaller districts around the state did the same.

The weather has given students from pre-kindergarten to college a break. Ohio State University, the University of Akron, Youngstown State University and Ohio University all canceled Tuesday classes but were expecting to reopen Wednesday.

Historic Detroit recording studio opens for tours

DETROIT (AP) — A historic Detroit recording studio is reopening after a successful sneak peak.

The United Sound Systems Recording Studio is holding a grand opening event Feb. 8 with guided tours of the landmark facility in the city's Midtown neighborhood.

The opening follows an open house last month in which George Clinton and colleagues in Parliament and Funkadelic shared memories of recording there.

The studio is where Berry Gordy cut a record that would lead the way to the Motown dynasty. In addition to Clinton and his cohorts, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and the Red Hot Chili Peppers laid down tracks at the studio.

Tours will take place on Fridays and Saturdays, and admission is $10 for adults and $8 for children and seniors. The studio is open and available by appointment.
