Local authorities, Akron schools administrators and top-ranking state and city officials came together at Buchtel Community Learning Center Tuesday to kick off the state’s “Start Talking” program.The campaign’s goal is to raise awareness about the “public health epidemic” of prescription opioid and heroin abuse, which accounted for a deadly overdose once every five hours in Ohio in 2011.The program dovetails efforts presented Monday in Gov. John Kasich’s State of the State Address in Medina.Kasich said his office, the legislature and the attorney general have shut down pill mills across Ohio, but the next step is to deal with the demand. “This is in every neighborhood,” he said. “Minority communities were dealing with it alone for a long time. It knows no race. It knows no demographics. We need to build courage and strength in people to say, ‘No.’ ”For schools, it is indeed no longer an inner-city problem.Along with former NFL player Deryck Toles, who grew up a victim of his parents’ drug use, two parents came forward Tuesday. One spoke of his son, a “strong” and “fast” athlete from Jackson High School who died 11 months after receiving his first pain killer from a friend.“Dustin was a good boy,” Dale Batdorff said of his 21-year-old son, who died in 2011. “He never experienced drug dealing outside of school. He never saw a drug deal going down on the corner of the street. We live in Jackson Township. This evil thing reached into my home and grabbed onto my son and did not let him go until he was dead. It knows no address ... It doesn’t care. This evil thing will just destroy anything it touches.“We have to start talking.”Dick Ross, Ohio superintendent of public instruction, commended Akron schools and board president Lisa Mansfield for being the first to adopt the statewide effort, and for bringing addiction to the forefront. From an education perspective, Ross said, addiction, whether by student or family, deprives children of an opportunity.“Any blockage for a student to be successful in school and moving on through careers and jobs and being good citizens, it’s something we have to look at,” he said. “It’s almost very insidious what happens.”Kasich said Monday that the Start Talking program, launched a month ago, has reached 9,000 students in the state and created 207 student ambassadors. He called on legislators to talk to their principals and superintendents about embracing the program for their own schools.Ross echoed Kasich, citing statistics that show talking to kids about drugs cut the chance of use in half. If that conversation is initiated by peers, the message could carry even more weight.That’s the goal of the program: to encourage student athletes and peers to be good role models, to share harrowing stories of addiction and to encourage the community to participate in the dialogue. More information can be found online at StartTalking.Ohio.Gov.Along with program adoption, Akron schools have applied for a $1 million grant, developed by the governor and Ohio’s First Lady Karen W. Kasich. The money would be used to train additional drug intervention staff, said Dan Rambler, director of Student Support Services.The program launch was attended by Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic, Carmen Ingram of the Summit County Sheriff’s Drug Unit, Tracy J. Plouck with the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services and James Nice, Akron’s police chief.Nice voiced frustration about lax laws that he said allow convicted heroin and opiate dealers, who sell small but lethal quantities, to not serve mandatory jail sentences.Nice said, “Most of the work that Akron Police Department is involved in is the result of drugs.”He praised the state and local focus on encouraging meaningful conversations with minors, nipping the problem in the bud before it leads to another criminal incident.For Nice, though, it’s an issue his officers are constantly “mopping up.” In morning staff meetings on Monday and Tuesday this week, Nice said his staff informed him of two lethal drug overdoses in the city. He followed the somber declaration by announcing that the Akron Police Department is bidding for two more positions to combat addiction: an investigator who would follow up on methamphetamine busts (no county in Ohio registers more than Summit) and another who would trace heroin and illegal opiate sales back to the dealer.“People need to be responsible for selling heroin,” he said.Beacon Journal staff writer Stephanie Warsmith contributed to this report.

Ohio EPA collecting air and soil samples at Catholic school in Cuyahoga Falls
CUYAHOGA FALLS: The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is collecting air and soil samples at a Catholic grade school to ensure that potentially hazardous vapors from a nearby construction site are not seeping inside.Testing at Immaculate Heart of Mary, near the former State Road Shopping Center, began Monday. It is expected to take most of the week, EPA spokeswoman Linda Oros said.“We are not aware of any reported health impacts and have no indication an immediate health threat exists,” the EPA said in a news release.None of the 300-plus students nor staff is in the school at 2859 Lillis Drive this week. They will return from spring vacation Monday.The EPA said that “out of an abundance of caution, Ohio EPA believes environmental testing is warranted to ensure the health and safety of the IHM community.”Testing is being done to determine if vapors from a contaminated aquifer under the old shopping center that is being redeveloped as Portage Crossing have leaked into the school and community center.The EPA has said that the source of the chemical in the aquifer is unknown.Immaculate Heart of Mary relies on city water from Cuyahoga Falls and does not draw from the contaminated aquifer, the EPA said, but contaminants in the groundwater have the potential to evaporate and move as a gas through soil and into building foundations. That is known as vapor intrusion.The EPA said it is paying for the collection and testing of the soil and air samples. The agency expects to post preliminary results from the air sampling Friday afternoon on the Summit County Public Health website.Go to and click the What’s New in AQ box.A full analysis will be released within a few weeks.The EPA held two meetings with school employees, parents and parishioners regarding the testing April 15. Follow-up meetings will be scheduled.Potential carcinogensThe two chemicals of concern, both potential carcinogens, are:• Trichloroethylene or TCE. It is a nonflammable, colorless liquid and solvent that is widely used to degrease metal parts, in adhesives and in paint/spot removers.• Tetrachloroethylene or perchloroethylene (PERC). It is a man-made solvent most often associated with dry cleaning. It is nonflammable.Breathing the vapors of either chemical can cause dizziness, headaches or lung irritation. Breathing high levels for long periods of time poses a serious concern, especially for susceptible populations, including pregnant women.Both chemicals have been widely detected in spills and leaks in the past across Ohio. Both are common pollutants.If vapors are found at troublesome levels, the EPA said it will work with Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Diocese of Cleveland to correct the problem.That would likely require the installation of subsurface ventilation systems, similar to radon mitigation systems, EPA Director Craig W. Butler wrote in a two-page letter sent to school parents, employees and parishioners.Funds from the federal EPA might be available to pay for such improvements, officials said.If the results show no immediate concerns with vapor intrusion, the Ohio EPA would continue to monitor the area in question, the agency said.An EPA risk assessor in February recommended the testing as part of the state’s Voluntary Action Plan being used in the Portage Crossing redevelopment.In March, the EPA issued a covenant not to sue to the city of Cuyahoga Falls for additional cleanup at the 25-acre site. Stark Enterprises of Cleveland is redeveloping the old retail area.The state tests are unlikely to cause any delays in the redevelopment of the mall area, said Diane Sheridan, the city’s director of community development.Efforts to contact the Immaculate Heart of Mary pastor, the Rev. James Singler, and Principal Kathleen Friess were unsuccessful.For more information, contact Mike Settles of the EPA at 614-644-2160 or, or Dawn Meyers of Summit County Public Health at 330-375-2480 or Downing can be reached at 330-996-3745 or

Tressel, two others named as finalists as UA narrows search for president
The man who traded scarlet and gray for blue and gold is among three finalists for the presidency of the University of Akron.The school on Tuesday announced it has cut the list of 19 applicants to three men who will be on campus next week for additional interviews and meetings.They are:• Ronald A. Nykiel, provost of University of Maryland Eastern Shore and former dean of business of Husson University in Bangor, Maine.• Scott L. Scarborough, provost of the University of Toledo and former executive vice president for finance and administration of DePaul University in Chicago.• Jim Tressel, executive vice president of student success at UA and the former national championship-winning football coach at Ohio State University.Jonathan Pavloff, a UA trustee and search committee chair, said the university is encouraged that the process that began in August is nearing an end.“We’re at the point now where we are kind of excited to re-engage the university community again and bring those constituency groups back into the process by allowing them to meet with these three finalists,” he said by phone Tuesday afternoon.Finalists will spend an entire day interviewing on campus and meeting with seven groups that include faculty, students, college deans, trustees and the public.Finalists’ scheduleNykiel will be on campus Monday, Scarborough on Wednesday and Tressel on Thursday.The open forums at which Nykiel and Scarborough will be available to the public are 3 to 4 p.m. during their on-campus dates. Tressel’s open forum will be 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday. The sessions will be held inside the UA Student Union Theatre.Trustees are looking for a new leader to take on numerous challenges, particularly in terms of the financial demands confronting the school and its 27,000 students. With a staff of 5,000 and a $388 million budget, UA is among Summit County’s largest employers.Tressel has not spoken publicly about his candidacy, but in his application wrote that, “It is my opinion that we need more than a leader who can ‘hit the ground running.’ ”“The University would be better served by a leader who has been ‘on the ground’ with the current team. ... Put simply, I believe I am the right leader at this time.”UA officials might need to move quickly if Tressel is their choice.Backers of Youngstown State University actively have been promoting Tressel for the open presidency there, and the YSU trustees’ president has said that he would seriously consider Tressel for the job.Tressel won four national championships in 15 seasons with the Penguins before leaving for Ohio State and has remained a big benefactor of the university.YSU plansYSU said it expects to cut its list of candidates to six to eight finalists this week.Pavloff said it is not unusual for presidential candidates to be seeking more than one position, and UA trustees will not rush their process.“Our process and our timeline is defined as we structured it. The fact that Youngstown is re-engaged in the process is coincidental,” he said. “Obviously, we’re going to continue to conduct our search according to the guideline of our process.”Tressel is the only finalist without a doctoral degree. Some consider it a huge hole in his resume.Pavloff noted that Norman Auburn, UA’s longest serving president, held only a bachelor’s degree when he was hired in 1951. He served for 20 years.Nykiel was an applicant for the Kent State University presidency that eventually went to Beverly Warren, provost of Virginia Commonwealth University.KSU scrutinizedKSU’s search has garnered local and national scrutiny. Critics have assailed the university for its reluctance to disclose the finalists’ names.KSU officials deny breaking any Ohio public records law while conducting the search and have said privacy guarantees made by using a private search firm brought out more and better-qualified applicants who did not want their names released publicly.Pavloff acknowledged that he is aware of potential UA applicants who declined to pursue the job because of the public nature of UA’s search.“I can tell you that there were some candidates who, when confronted with the prospect of having their name announced, decided to withdraw,” he said. “Now, whether they would have been candidates that we would have invited to campus ... I cannot determine that because they withdrew from the process.“But, nonetheless the open records laws determine how we conduct the process, and that’s what guides us.”Pavloff and the other trustees on the search committee — Roland Bauer, Olivia Demas and Ralph Palmisano — have been meeting since August to find the successor to President Luis Proenza, who steps down July 1 to return to teaching.Trustees hired the firm R. William Funk and Associates of Dallas to help in the search. From an original list of 19 applicants, four dropped out early in the process.Two of the remaining 15 candidates who did not make the cut to finalists are from the Akron area: Ronald Bucci, interim vice president for professional and support services at Akron Children’s Hospital; and Martin Belsky, UA’s Randolph Baxter Professor of Law and former dean of the university’s law school.UA has a Web page devoted to the search: Biliczky can be reached at 330-996-3729 or

Bar owner’s testifies on men’s whereabouts as they seek ‘actual innocence’ ruling in 1988 P
RAVENNA: The man who owned the bar where Connie Nardi spent the last few hours of her life saw two young men leave and return that night.It was a steaming hot Sunday — Aug. 14, 1988 — and he recalled that the bar’s air conditioning was out.His memory was precise about another point: Randy Resh and Bob Gondor, who had been drinking late into the evening at the Upper Deck in Mantua Township, left about 10 p.m. and returned about 11.Former bar owner Ed Douglas was certain about that fact in his testimony as the first witness for Resh and Gondor in their civil trial in Portage County.Attorneys for the two men said it was one of the most vital pieces of evidence in proving their “actual innocence” in the Nardi slaying.Resh and Gondor must win such a declaration in this civil trial to proceed along a legal track that would take them to arguments before the Ohio Court of Claims for monetary damages for wrongful imprisonment.Retired Summit County Common Pleas Judge Marvin Shapiro, who is handling the case as a visiting judge, has sole authority to decide the issue based on a preponderance of the evidence.The trial is expected to last at least until the end of the week.Prosecutors grilled Douglas, now 80, about how he could be so certain about his time frame some 25 years later. He never wavered.“The reason I know that,” Douglas told the court, “is because I looked at the clock when I was starting to clean up to leave.”Opening statementAccording to previous testimony of the only man still behind bars for Nardi’s murder, 46-year-old Troy Joseph Busta of Hiram, she was killed between 9:30 and 9:40 p.m., prosecutors said in their opening statement.Given Douglas’ testimony that Resh and Gondor did not leave his bar until 10 p.m., it would have been impossible for them to have been with Busta during that “window of time,” attorney Steven Bradley told Shapiro.Busta was convicted of murder after a March 1989 plea bargain with the Geauga County Prosecutor’s Office. The plea deal, in which eight counts of the aggravated murder indictment were dismissed in exchange for Busta’s guilty plea and testimony, saved him from facing the death penalty.He then became the state’s star witness against Resh and Gondor, both 26 at the time, during their 1990 Portage County jury trials.After years of post-conviction appeals and 16½ years in prison, both men were set free in April 2007 after they were exonerated in a retrial.Portage County Assistant Prosecutor Gene Muldowney attempted to poke holes in the bar owner’s timetable, reminding Douglas of his previously court testimony, two decades ago, that he could have been off by as much as one hour on his time for Resh and Gondor leaving the bar.“I could tell you a little more about that back then,” Douglas replied, “because Norris was finagling those numbers.”That was a reference to David Norris, the Portage County prosecutor in the original Resh and Gondor trials. He left office in disgrace, resigning in September 1994 after pleading guilty to a federal charge of cocaine possession.Former Geauga County Sheriff’s Lt. David Easthon, who was the lead investigator in the 1988 probe, testified Tuesday.Bradley called him the orchestrator of the charges against Resh and Gondor and said he turned a “blind eye” on potentially meaningful evidence — Douglas’ timetable for one — in the days after the slaying.“In his mind, he becomes fixated that there are other people involved in this other than Troy Busta, and he focuses on Bob Gondor and Randy Resh,” Bradley told Shapiro.Six days after the slaying, for example, Douglas reported in a phone interview with Easthon that Busta and Nardi had gone to a party on the night of her death, where two other men — not Resh and Gondor — were present.Easthon’s reply was: “Well, we haven’t spoken to these two [other] guys. Yeah, we’re beyond that. We’re in more critical stages now.”Attorney Mark Marein, who represents Resh in the civil trial, asked Easthon if he viewed any bite marks on Resh’s arms when the lieutenant interviewed Resh three days after the slaying.Easthon, now the police chief at the Cleveland Clinic, said he saw no such marks.Marein’s next question was whether Busta told Easthon about a struggle.“He did say that she bit Randy Resh,” Easthon answered.Testimony continues today at 8:30 a.m.Ed Meyer can be reached at 330-996-3784 or

by Bonnie
A: Blakeslee Ohio seems to be a village, not a city. It is in Williams county and the population there is very small. By searching the information found online, looks to be around only a hundred people according to the census bureau in sixty nine acres. Here's more information about the area, population and so forth In this day and age with the technological advancements, most cities have their own webpage. The first sign that there may not be a city is the missing website, since it saves the city money and resources to convey information to their citizens/residents over the internet rather than over the phone. Also, look for schools in the area, news publications and what is typically found other local areas. The next place to the is the county (Williams), which can have information about zoning, and its governing of it. There's a Williams county page here that can be found by using the search box. There you will see the resources from the county seat. Once in the official county website, you will find a elected officials directory which lists from the area's auditor to the treasurer.

What you need to do and how to get the death information largely depends on the area you're trying to get the information from. Some are easier than others, so it is important to consider not where you are located, but where the death occurred.

There’s plenty of searching that can be done online freely. Here’s a link to the Michigan court’s free case search which includes criminal trials of felonies and misdemeanors. Open cases as well as some closed cases can be searched. These cases are from supreme and appellate courts. Case records in district/circuit/county filings are managed by their individual court clerks. Online access to their records have not been fully implemented and not available to the public at this time. Therefore, a visit to the court’s physical location may be necessary.

Q: How much debt does the City of Dayton have on its books?
by Rick66
A: Look for the department within the local city government which would have the information. All government data is not readily available online, or even at the physical location. You may have to make an FOIA, freedom of information act request. City budgets are public records but the statutes are not clear as to how easy they should be to obtain. I believe that they can not be cost prohibitive, or prohibitive in general. Journalists and concerned citizen groups, just to name a couple, find it necessary to make an official FOIA request, and when that does not work, they go to court and have it enforced. Two places you can look on your own are newspapers which published a report about the city’s budget, which is not the most reliable source as it can be skewed or have data omitted. The other method is looking up any court records which contain the city’s name and budgets. Both of these methods don’t have a high probability of offering the data, but it can be worth checking before making a formal request.

The department's website will most likely have information and in some cases even the forms online to requesting them. If the arrest is recent, the department may have a custody or booking list, that depends on the agency and the services offered to the public. Larger entities are more likely to offer public searches online. Another place to check that only requires time is by looking up local newswires to see if there's a page of recent arrests. If the arrest resulted in a conviction and time being served, the department of corrections for that particular state will have an inmate databank open to the public. The information that can be viewed online relies on various factors such as the entities budget, how often they have to provide the services and so forth. Criminal court records can also be checked, including upcoming cases on calendar.

A: Libraries local to the area can have columns on micro-film or digitally recorded. Some of their services can be found online. Librarians assist many on researching and narrowing down where to look and save you time. Most services are not online so going to the physical location may be the only access. Narrowing down a time frame is helpful when looking up this type of information.

Q: Are directories such as yp the best way to look people up?
by jen
A: Although online directories do a lot more that the print version did in the past, there are other means of searching for people. There are online sources that offer photos to along with the name. There's no single best source to look for an individual or everyone would have been using it and we'd all hear about how great it is. The best source to use in searching for a person depends on the trail that they left behind. This causes the name to appear in different places. For example, if they owned property in an area, involved in a court case, mentioned in periodicals, on social media sites and so forth. It's best if you have as much information to start, specially if the name you're searching for is common. In that case, collect as much information about the person as you can during your search such as the middle initial/name, date of birth or just the age. This will help you narrow the search and better identify when there are many others with the same name. Also, look up as many aliases/other names under the same person, such as a maiden names. There are multitude of data banks with names and addresses most people don't realize. One example is when you believe the person owned a business, you can conduct a state wide search under the individual's or business name. Look and utilize as many name databanks as you see during your search since you can't tell without using them what it will reveal. Most of these online searches are free and you can see the results right away.

Q: public arrest records where do I find them on line? (Wilmington OH)
by shan
A: You can get it directly from the city police or county sheriffs but it mostly depends which department is the one that made the arrest. The city of Wilmington police department as well as the Clinton county sheriffs does not seem have an online search of persons arrested and in custody as of yet. The next level up is the state's department of corrections, but these are of convicted prisoners doing time, not simply in custody awaiting bail or other reasons outside of a conviction. The Clermont County Jail contains an online list of all inmates currently in custody. Arrests are considered public records, however the method in which to obtain it can vary from department to department. When a journalist for example needs to get this information, they make a public records request from the departments public records officer. In this case, if the Wilmington police department does not have a jail, the Clinton county sheriffs jail division is the next one to check. There is contact information online where to look for persons in their custody. Persons that are arrested, get booked and can still appear on jail list even when they have been released.
