Ohio judge to hear pretrial issues in P&G protest

CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio judge plans to hear from prosecutors and defense attorneys about the case against nine Greenpeace activists.
Hamilton County Judge Robert Winkler has a Monday hearing on pretrial issues. No trial date has been set yet on burglary and vandalism charges that followed the March 4 protest at Procter & Gamble Co. headquarters in Cincinnati.
Winkler recently rejected defense arguments that the activists were simply exercising their free speech rights when they used a zip line to unfurl giant banners from the consumer products maker’s towers as a helicopter filmed them. Prosecutors say that regardless of their political message, the activists committed crimes and caused damage.
The activists were protesting P&G use of palm oil Greenpeace linked to tropical forest destruction. P&G has since revised its supply policy.

Ohio rakes in $45 million in online taxes

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Online sales tax collections have hit an all-time high in Ohio this year.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/Wv94js ) that the state has collected $45 million from out-of-state retailers in the 2014 budget year. That’s a 68 percent increase over the past five years.
The money is pouring in after Ohio officially joined a multi-state effort to streamline sales tax for online purchases.
The Ohio Department of Taxation estimates that the state stands to eventually tap into an estimated $308 million worth of tax revenue from online sales.
Still, Ohio doesn’t have legal authority to collect from online retailers who don’t operate in a physical location in the state, such as Amazon.
The result: Many buyers don’t get charged sales tax on millions of dollars’ worth of purchases.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices are up slightly to start the work week but remain below the national average.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.49 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 2 cents more than a week ago — and 28 cents lower than a month ago in Ohio.
Monday’s national average was $3.57, which is 4 cents lower than a week ago. It’s 10 cents lower than the price last year at this time.
Analysts say the price of crude oil was elevated on anxiety about the Middle East, though the likelihood of disruption in supplies was small.

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A popular suburban Cleveland restaurant will reopen this week with a limited menu after the slaying of its owner.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that (http://bit.ly/1n3QYP6 ) Brennan’s Colony will reopen Tuesday for drinks only, but customers can bring in food from area restaurants. The tavern’s kitchen is expected to reopen Friday with a limited menu.
The announcement comes about three weeks after the tavern’s owner was shot during an attempted robbery at his establishment. Police say 61-year-old Jim Brennan died at a hospital following the June 30 shooting.
Two sets of brothers have pleaded not guilty to charges in connection with the shooting. Authorities say one of the men had worked for the slain owner for about a month.
