DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio Department of Taxation report finds that since 2012 the amount of tax credits granted businesses promising to create and retain jobs has been going up.
The report finds the value of the incentives grew from $56 million that year to $63 million last year to an estimated $65 million in the fiscal year that began July 1.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1r2wOoO ) Ohio businesses increased their payrolls by 43,100 jobs last year at the same time more tax revenue was foregone.
Daryl Hennessy, the Ohio Development Services Agency’s Business Services Division chief, says tax credit benefits outweigh the cost in every instance.
Doug Moorman, vice president of Cincinnati-based Development Strategies Group LLC, says incentives help Ohio compete with states with no income tax.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Catholic priest convicted of killing a nun inside a chapel a day before Easter 1980 died Friday at a Columbus prison hospice unit, a day after a federal judge refused his request to be released to family care so he could die in his hometown of Toledo.

Attorney Richard Kerger said the Rev. Gerald Robinson's sister-in-law told him the priest died Friday morning.

"I'm sure he's in a better place," Kerger said.

Robinson, 76, had been serving a sentence of 15 years to life in what church historians have characterized as the only documented case of a Catholic priest killing a nun.

LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) — Tests of soil to gauge possible contamination could help settle a debate over where to locate a new jail to replace a chronically overcrowded facility in southeastern Ohio.
The new Fairfield County Jail will cost at least $30 million and will replace three old and overcrowded buildings that often flunk state inspections.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Monday that county commissioners expect results this week of testing of soil conditions at a proposed site close to courts and lawyers’ offices in downtown Lancaster.
Officials hope the results answer questions about soil stability and possible contamination leftover from a 19th-century slaughterhouse, tannery and other industries.
Some want the jail built farther out of Lancaster on undeveloped land near the current multicounty juvenile detention center.
