DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The U.S. Air Force says a new $20.8 million supercomputer will nearly double the computing power at Ohio's largest military base.

The latest supercomputer is expected to arrive in May at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1gw599h ) reports that the Cray XC30 will have the capability to calculate one quadrillion calculations per second. Officials say that should put it among the top 20 fastest computers in the world.

Officials said the water-cooled computer is expected to reduce a backlog of data for test simulations.

The expanded capability is part of $50 million being spent by the Department of Defense to modernize high-performance computing systems.

BELLEFONTAINE — An Urbana woman described as an avid bowler, was arrested Saturday and charged in the hit-and-run pedestrian crash that killed Marine Gunnery Sgt. Monica Plank.
Holly J. Fowler, 26, of 5939 School St., was charged with a third-degree felony count of leaving the scene of a crash that resulted in the death of another and a felony count of tampering with evidence.
Her car, a maroon Chevrolet Malibu LT, was impounded after officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department met with her at TP Lanes, 300 E. Lake Ave., around 4:45 p.m.
At that time, she repeatedly denied any knowledge of the crash even though officers and detectives observed damage to the passenger side of her car that was consistent with the fatal collision Feb. 16.

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say five people were killed in two separate head-on crashes in central Ohio.

Three were killed Sunday night when an SUV crashed head-on into another vehicle carrying a family of four on a dark road in southern Union County, northwest of Columbus.

Deputies were still investigating the crash, and no names have been released.

The accident came hours after two people were killed and another was critically injured in a head-on crash in Fairfield County, southeast of Columbus. The patrol said two women in a Honda Accord were killed.

Education, jobs likely topics in Gov. Kasich's speech

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich is preparing to deliver a State of the State speech that is expected to emphasize recent gains in private-sector jobs and lay out the Republican's latest ideas for benefiting the state's economy.

Education is likely to be a key theme in Monday's speech at the Performing Arts Center in Medina.

The first-term governor has said he believes students need access to vocational options perhaps as early as 7th grade. He's also hinted public schools should be partially "deregulated" to give educators more flexibility to prevent students from lagging.

Kasich has said he'll work to further reduce Ohio's income tax rate, a goal set out in his 2010 campaign.

His Democratic 2014 rival says Kasich's policies have not benefited Ohio's schools or the overall economy.
