COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Libertarian Party of Ohio appealed a federal judge's order Thursday in an effort to get its gubernatorial candidate on the May primary ballot.

Attorneys for the party also asked the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati to compel Ohio's elections chief to ask for an exemption to avoid printing the primary ballots, which are slated to be mailed to certain military and overseas voters on Saturday. Some local election boards have already printed primary ballots, while others can print them right before mailing them.

Earl's candidacy would have the potential to draw votes from Republican Gov. John Kasich as the incumbent faces likely Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive.

Secretary of State Jon Husted had disqualified gubernatorial contender Charlie Earl and the Libertarian candidate for attorney general, Steven Linnabary, after their nominating petitions were challenged on two grounds: that signature gatherers failed to comply with Ohio laws requiring them to be either Libertarian or political independents and another requiring them to disclose their employer.

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida say a Michigan tourist has returned a wrestling shoe autographed by Hulk Hogan that she took from a store in Clearwater.

Authorities say the woman called the professional wrestling icon's Clearwater Beach store on Thursday, saying she wanted to return the shoe.

A security camera captured images of the theft but it wasn't until Tuesday that employees realized the shoe — valued at $5,500 — was missing. Employees watched the security film and called police.

According to Clearwater police, the woman says she "had done a stupid thing." Though she had returned to Michigan, she had left the shoe behind and arranged for three people she met while in Clearwater to return it to the store.

No charges have been filed, but an investigation continues.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Five more cases of mumps are confirmed in the outbreak of the viral infection at Ohio State University, bringing the total to 37.

The confirmed cases involve 17 women and 20 men ranging in age from 18 to 48. Three of them were hospitalized for at least one day.

Columbus Public Health added four students and one Ohio State staff member to the list Thursday. Officials have been mapping cases to determine how they might be linked.

Of the 37 people infected, 30 are students, three are staff and one is a student's relative. Health officials say three cases involve people who don't study or work at Ohio State but have links to the university community.

Mumps is contagious and often starts with fever, fatigue and body aches.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's highest court is temporarily blocking a ruling that says a former police captain should have been kept in prison even after his conviction in his ex-wife's killing was overturned.

The state Supreme Court granted the request for a stay Thursday, the same day former Akron officer Douglas Prade (PRAYD') was jailed under orders from a county judge. It wasn't immediately clear whether the 67-year-old Prade would be released.

Prade served nearly 15 years and was freed in 2013 when a judge decided new DNA testing of a bite mark proved he didn't kill his ex-wife. But an appeals court concluded Wednesday that the test didn't give a clear answer.

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Honda is marking a big milestone at its Marysville plant in central Ohio as the automaker celebrates the completion of 10 million American-made Accords.

Honda says it reached that mark with a vehicle that came off the assembly line Thursday at Marysville, which was Honda's first auto plant in the U.S. The first Honda Accord was made there in November 1982.

Honda says the Marysville facility and its three other auto manufacturing plants have produced a total of 20 million vehicles in the U.S. The other plants are in East Liberty, Ohio; Lincoln, Ala.; and Greensburg, Ind.

The company says that it has invested about $1.6 billion in its U.S. auto plants over the past three years to expand production and implement new technologies and manufacturing systems.
