CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Clinic says more than 700 workers will take early retirement as the region's largest employer tries to cut costs.

WKYC-TV (http://on.wkyc.com/1eikKL5 ) reports that the northeast Ohio hospital system is moving forward with a multi-year plan to cut about $330 million from its budget.

Clinic officials said in a statement they plan to "backfill" nearly half of the jobs. They also said several hundred open positions would be closed.

The Cleveland Clinic system has about 42,000 employees in the region.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a central Ohio man to 16 months in prison for making Twitter threats to kill President Barack Obama.

Thirty-seven-year-old Daniel Temple of Columbus had confessed to U.S. Secret Service agents to making the threats and pleaded guilty in May.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1fpcSYy ) reports that he was sentenced by U.S. District Judge George C. Smith on Wednesday.

According to the Secret Service complaint, threatening tweets by Temple from March included the president's name and phrases such as "coming to kill you" and "killing you soon."

Temple's attorney, Gordon G. Hobson, wrote in a sentencing memorandum that Temple has been treated since 2010 for paranoia, delusions and hallucinations caused by alcohol and marijuana abuse.

Hobson said Temple has been sober since his arrest in March.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Seven cancer specialists in northern Ohio have been put on probation on their guilty pleas to importing unapproved cancer drugs.

The government says the seven also must pay a total of $2.6 million in fines and restitution.

The doctors pleaded guilty to violating the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The charges were filed last August, and the doctors were sentenced over the past four months.

The seventh doctor was put on probation Tuesday by a federal magistrate in Cleveland.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The family of an Ohio man who suffered brain damage after a police officer used a stun gun on him while he was atop an 8-foot fence, causing him to fall head-first to the concrete below, has settled a federal civil rights lawsuit for more than $2 million, his attorney said Wednesday.

Under the settlement, Matthew Hook's family will drop the lawsuit against the Columbus suburb of Perry Township, its board of trustees and the police officer, said attorney Al Gerhardstein of Cincinnati. In exchange, the township's insurer will pay $2.25 million, to be divided among Hook, his parents and his 6-year-old daughter, who live in the Columbus suburb of Dublin.

The lawsuit, filed in November 2011, accused Officer Shawn Bean of using deadly force on Hook, then 23, by stunning him in the back with a Taser while he was unarmed and scaling a fence Aug. 9, 2010. Police said Hook had been driving a stolen vehicle, was implicated in two burglaries and was fleeing police.

Hook, 27, now suffers from seizures, is emotionally unstable and requires constant monitoring, Gerhardstein said.

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A man suspected in the 1997 slaying of his estranged wife in Tennessee was arrested in Texas but freed on a clerical error before being recaptured in Ohio.

Wood County, Ohio, jail records show Adolphus Hollingsworth was being held Wednesday on a murder charge pending his return to Chattanooga, Tenn.

The remains of Victoria Witherspoon Carr were found in 1999. The case was recently featured on TNT's crime show "Cold Justice."

Hollingsworth allegedly had been living in Amarillo, where he was arrested Jan. 22 and held for officers in Hamilton County, Tenn.

Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas on Tuesday said a new employee mistakenly contacted Hamilton County, Texas, which had no warrant for Hollingsworth. He was released before the mistake was discovered Friday.

Hollingsworth was nabbed Saturday in Rossford, Ohio.
