Miama U helps Miami tribe preserve its history

CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio university is working to preserve 19th century land grant documents recently recovered by the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma that mark the tribe's transition from collectively-held land to individual ownership as it tried — and mostly failed — to avoid government relocation.

Miami University's preservation work on the eight land grants — one signed in 1823 by President James Monroe and seven signed in 1843 by President John Tyler — stems from a long collaborative relationship between the tribe and university. That relationship led to the creation several years ago of the university's Myaamia Center, which helps the tribe with research needs.

Tribe member George Ironstrack, the center's assistant director, says the grants found in storage at a Catholic diocese in Indiana are historically important because they show tribe members trying to secure a land base for their families. He says the grants were promised in treaties that increasingly required the tribe to give up large amounts of land sought by the government and others.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a 61-year-old tractor-trailer driver has been killed after a crash with a car on northbound Interstate 71 in Columbus.

Columbus police say the semi and a Mustang were both heading north when they hit, and the semi ran off the right side of the highway and into a guardrail and concrete sound barrier. The accident was at 6:14 a.m. EST near Gemini Place.

Police say Daniel Eisnaugle of Newark, Ohio, was dead at the scene. The Mustang driver was treated at the scene for a minor injury.

Police were still investigating the accident, which caused northbound lanes to close for hours Saturday. Traffic was reportedly moving very slowly through the area Saturday afternoon.

KETTERING, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a house fire killed a woman, her two young sons and her 76-year-old father in southwest Ohio.

A spokeswoman with the Montgomery County coroner's office says 4-yr-old Shaun Mobley Jr., 2-year-old Jacob Mobley, and 36-yr-old Alicia Mobley died in the fire Thursday at their home in the Dayton suburb of Kettering.

The coroner's office earlier identified the fourth victim as Forrest Carroll. Kettering police confirmed Friday that Carroll was Alicia Mobley's father.

The state fire marshal's office says investigators indicated three people escaped, one of them with injuries. Officials did not immediately release details on the injured.

Longtime Ohio State football manager dead at 88

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — John Bozick, Ohio State's longtime football equipment manager throughout the tenures of Woody Hayes and Earle Bruce, died Friday. He was 88.

Ohio State officials confirmed the death.

During his decades of service and long after his retirement, Bozick remained a fixture around the team's practice facility. He was a friend and a foil of Hayes' during the coach's 28 years in charge of the Buckeyes (1951-78).

For years Bozick hung around Ohio State athletes, coaches and reporters, telling colorful stories about Hayes, who died in 1987.

Bozick is one of only 17 non-athletes honored in Ohio State's men's athletic hall of fame.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A former drug dealer was found guilty on Friday at his retrial in the 2005 arson deaths of a woman and eight children at a birthday sleepover — the city's deadliest house fire.

A U.S. District Court jury handed down the verdict in the case against 30-year-old Antun Lewis in the fire in an impoverished Cleveland neighborhood. Lewis also was convicted in the first trial.

Defense attorneys said Friday they believe the enormous tragedy overshadowed the evidence in the case.

"We truly believe that the charges in this case were so horrific, with the deaths of the children and the mother, that the community wanted to hold someone responsible, in spite of what the evidence showed," attorney Angelo Lonardo said, according to The Plain Dealer.
