ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Police say a body found in a northern Ohio cornfield is that of an adult, but they were awaiting an autopsy before releasing more information.

The Chronicle-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1cpfD75 ) reports a farmer plowing the field found the body Wednesday in Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh), a little over 25 miles west of Cleveland.

Elyria police Capt. Chris Costantino says it appears the body had been there for some time.

Police didn't immediately release other details, including the sex of person who died. The body was removed by the Lorain County coroner's office.

NE Ohio sheriff removed from office is reappointed

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio sheriff who was removed from office in November because he didn't have the required experience has been reappointed to the job by the Stark County Democratic Central Committee.

Local party leaders had first selected George Maier (MEYE'-er) in February, when the county sheriff's job was vacant because the elected Democrat was sick. The Repository in Canton (http://bit.ly/1kB2axz ) reports Maier was chosen again Wednesday, receiving 101 votes to Lt. Louis Darrow's 65.

Darrow had been runner-up in the first vote. He and interim Sheriff Timothy Swanson had asked the Ohio Supreme Court to compel Darrow's appointment as sheriff in Canton.

The newspaper says Swanson has indicated he will again sue Maier and challenge the appointee's qualifications before the Ohio Supreme Court.

Voter records bill among issues before Ohio House
Written by Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio House is slated to vote Wednesday on a bill to bolster the state's voter registration database.

The measure requires state agencies to share data with the secretary of state to help maintain Ohio's voter records. It also reduces the minimum number of electronic voting machines a county must have.

The Ohio Association of Election Officials supports the bill.

Wednesday is the last day the House expects to be in session this year. Senators already have wrapped up work.

Two other election-related bills not scheduled for a vote have drawn more heated reaction.

One would eliminate so-called "Golden Week," during which voters can both register and cast an early ballot. Another puts limits on when unsolicited absentee ballot applications can be sent to voters and who can send them.

Democrat ends bid to be Ohio's lieutenant governor

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Democratic lieutenant governor candidate in Ohio who faced hundreds of thousands of dollars in state and federal tax liens dropped out of the race Tuesday, saying his financial troubles were taking away from debate on important policy issues.

State Sen. Eric Kearney, a Cincinnati attorney, said in a statement that he would no longer be gubernatorial contender Ed FitzGerald's running mate as FitzGerald challenges Republican Gov. John Kasich next year.

"This has come to be a distraction from a discussion of the vital issues facing Ohio, and the choice voters must make in this election," Kearney said. "The stakes are too high: We need a change of leadership to move Ohio in a new direction that puts more Ohioans back to work and builds a better future for our children."

Deal will keep Ohio tank plant running
Written by Associated Press   
Wednesday, 11 December 2013 07:39

LIMA, Ohio (AP) — U.S. Senate and House negotiators are planning to provide as much as $90 million to keep the production line running at an Ohio tank manufacturing plant.

The money for the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center is included in the defense bill, which could get congressional approval as early as this week. It means Abrams tanks will continue to roll off the line at the nation's only tank manufacturing plant, in Lima (LY'-mah), about 80 miles south of Toledo.

The money for the tank plant will come against the wishes of the Obama administration, which for the past two years has asked Congress not to spend any money to refurbish the M1A1 Abrams battle tank.

Ohio senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman supported keeping the plant operating.
