National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Charge Against Roby Dropped
The misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby has been conditionally dropped.
Roby, involved in a fight at a Bloomington, Ind., bar in July, must avoid any additional legal trouble until Aug. 16, 2014, in order to have the charge dismissed.
The redshirt junior, one of the top players on the second-ranked Buckeyes’ defense, was charged with misdemeanor battery after he was accused of making contact with the chest of the bar’s security guard. The charge was reduced last week from battery to disorderly conduct.
Coach Urban Meyer has suspended Roby for the team’s opener against Buffalo on Aug. 31.
