TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A rare Francois' langur monkey has been born at a zoo in northern Ohio

Keepers at the Toledo Zoo say the monkey was born a week ago. The zoo is one of about 20 places in the country that exhibit and breed Francois' langurs.

The zoo says the newborn's name is Tam, which means "heart" in Vietnamese.

There are an estimated 2,500 left in the wild. They are found in Vietnam, southeast China and central Laos.

The zoo says most Francois' langurs have orange hair when they are born and a long, black coat when they grow older.

Ohioans brace for more snow, colder temperatures

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans should expect to see more snow Saturday, as a system makes its way across the state.

Winter weather advisories were in effect statewide, with 2 to 4 inches of snow predicted. Some areas could see 6 inches. Temperatures were expected to be in the lower teens or single digits, with below-zero wind chills. Wind gusts in northeast Ohio could reach near 40 mph.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said Friday it's used about 621,000 tons of salt on roadways so far this season, compared with roughly 252,000 tons at this time last year.

Officials in one southwest county said they have a salt shortage that's limiting the clearing of county roads. Montgomery County was advising motorists that sand would be used by itself or with salt in some areas.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A former outside bookkeeper for a failed credit union in Cleveland has been charged with a nearly $1 million fraud.

Federal officials announced the filing Friday of a single count of conspiracy against 44-year-old Vytas Apanavicius (VEE'-tahs ah-pan-ah-VIH'-shuhs) of Mentor.

Defense attorney Michael Hennenberg says his client intends to accept responsibility and plead guilty.

The outside bookkeeper for the Taupa Lithuanian Credit Union allegedly looted money with the help of a former CEO of the financial institution.

The ex-CEO and two other men were charged earlier.

The National Credit Union Administration and the state of Ohio took over the credit union in July and placed it in receivership. It had about 1,150 members and assets of $24 million.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio man is facing charges after sheriff's deputies say they found explosive devices and a loaded firearm at his home.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says deputies had gone to the house in Columbus on Jan. 15 to evict 55-year-old Mark A. Kulis. O'Brien said the officers found six improvised explosive devices, bomb-making materials, several firearms and ammunition in the home.

A grand jury indicted Kulis Friday on charges of criminal possession of an explosive device and carrying a concealed weapon. No attorney is listed for him in court records.

O'Brien says if convicted of the charges, Kulis could be sentenced to more than 25 years in prison.

Kulis is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say at least three cats have died after a fire in the basement of an animal shelter in north-central Ohio.

Fire officials say they saved 36 cats from the Stop The Overpopulation of Pets cat rescue in Mansfield and that eight others are missing.

Mansfield Fire Department Assistant Chief Mark Sieving tells the Mansfield News Journal that he believes the dead cats died of smoke inhalation.

Dispatcher Mark Huckleberry says a shelter employee called authorities just before 6:30 p.m. Friday to report the fire in the basement. The cause of the fires is under investigation.
