COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A state panel has picked more than 150 schools and educational entities in Ohio as finalists for grants from a new innovation fund established by Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik).

The Ohio Department of Education says 24 grants totaling nearly $89 million were recommended Friday by the Straight A Fund Governing Board. The board's selections must be approved by the state Controlling Board, which meets Dec. 16.

About 420 organizations submitted 570 applications for the "Straight A Fund" grants. The winning ideas had to significantly boost student achievement, reduce spending or target an impressive share of resources into the classroom.

The $250 million fund was created in the state budget signed this summer. A new round of grant funding will be held next year.

CINCINNATI (AP) — More than half a foot of snow is already on the ground in parts of southwestern and central Ohio as another round of wintry weather heads this way.

The National Weather Service says 7 inches of snow was reported in Harveysburg, Warren County and Oxford, Butler County. Five inches was reported in northwestern Cincinnati.

Forecasters say sunny skies on Saturday wouldn't last long, as more snow was forecast to hit parts of Ohio on Sunday.

Meteorologist Mike Kurz says more snowy weather is expected for southern Ohio on Sunday morning. He says that should change to a wintry mix as temperatures rise Sunday afternoon. He says parts of southern Ohio could get 1 to 3 inches of snow Sunday, with lesser amounts likely in central Ohio.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio appeals court says charges were improperly dismissed for two nurses in the malnutrition death of a Dayton teenager who had cerebral palsy and weighed just 28 pounds.

The 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled Friday that a juvenile court wrongly dismissed misdemeanor charges of failure to report child abuse or neglect.

Mary Kilby, of Miamisburg, and Kathryn Williams, of Englewood, had been convicted in adult court for failing to provide for a functionally impaired person. A judge ruled the juvenile counts were similar to those charges, but the appeals court disagreed and sent the juvenile cases back to juvenile court.

The defendants' attorneys didn't immediately return calls Friday.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio woman convicted of posing as a veterinarian at a clinic has been released from prison after serving about half of her 18-month sentence.

Authorities said Brandi Tomko pretended to be an animal doctor in Akron to support a drug habit. She was convicted of animal-related offenses and drug-related crimes.

Tomko had posed as a vet from 2009 to 2011 at an animal hospital, where she drew blood, wrote prescriptions and performed animal surgeries despite not being properly licensed.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1cfCmCK ) reports a judge granted Tomko early release this week and put her on probation for two years.

Tomko's attorney says he's satisfied with the outcome of the case.
