Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Early morning temperatures across Ohio Tuesday were are on the back side of zero. The frigid air has forced closure of schools for a second day. Columbus Public Schools and all Franklin County suburban districts canceled classes. Otherwise Central Ohioans are coping with the cold.
Police officers from the Columbus area held a brief vigil yesterday afternoon outside a bank where an officer was killed almost two years ago. The gathering came in response to a federal judge’s decision last week to set aside the death sentence for the man convicted of murdering officer Bryan Hurst.
