|Group of Browns players kneel during anthemWKBN / 1 h. ago more|
CLEVELAND (AP) – More than a dozen Cleveland Browns huddled on the team’s sideline Monday night during the national anthem. Linebacker Jamie Collins, running backs Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson and rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer were part of the group who circled together before a nationally televised game against the New York Giants. Several of the players knelt and joined hands while the anthem played. Collins, Johnson, Jabrill Peppers, Seth DeValve, Kenny Britt, Ricardo Louis, Calvin Pryor and Terrance Magee also dropped to one knee while Kizer, Shon Coleman, Britton Colquitt, Jason McCourty and Marcus Martin stood and supported their teammates by putting their hands on their shoulders. Browns coach Hue Jackson drew criticism last week when he seemed to indicate he didn’t want his players to protest. However, Jackson clarified his remarks to say he respected any player who wanted to demonstrate. (Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

|These little packets you might find in your yard are fighting rabiesWYTV / 7 h. 12 min. ago more|
BEAVER TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture is making a stop in the Valley to fight against rabies by dropping vaccines for the virus all over Northeast Ohio. The department is taking to the skies in planes and helicopters to drop the rabies vaccines, which look like ketchup packets. Around 4:30 p.m., five planes flew in after a nearly three-hour flight. “I’m looking for objects such as roads, buildings, waterways — things I don’t want to hit with the baits — and looking for places raccoons would be,” said biologist and navigator Shawn Orndorff. The program started in the ’90s to stop the spread of the virus. Since then, there’s been a big decrease in the number of rabies cases. The USDA will be dropping 1.5 million of the vaccines over the next five days through 9,000 miles of Ohio. It’ll also be throwing brown square vaccines out of cars to cover more ground. The vaccines give off a fishy smell because they’re covered in a fish oil crumble to get the animal to eat it. But what’s appetizing to raccoons isn’t safe for humans or household pets. If you do happen to come across one of the packets, don’t touch it with your bare hands — find gloves. “If they find one, pick it up and put it over in the woods or somewhere where wildlife will find it, away from their pets,” said Betsy Haley, with the USDA. The USDA also says you should never approach a rabid animal. If one bites you or a pet, go to the doctor or veterinarian right away. “If it does charge you, contact the health department and get medical treatment immediately,” Haley said. There have been no reported cases of rabies in Trumbull, Mahoning, or Columbiana counties so far this year.
|Local prosecutor shot 20 years ago says Ohio judge will never be the sameWYTV / 8 h. 37 min. ago more|
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV/WBNS) – Cases like the judge who was shot in Steubenville bring back a lot of memories for people in the Mahoning Valley of the assassination attempt on a local prosecutor. According to officials, Nathaniel Richmond waited to ambush Jefferson County Judge Joseph Bruzzese, Jr. on Monday. The suspect, who happens to be the biological father of Youngstown State football player and convicted rapist Ma’lik Richmond, died from his injuries after a probation officer returned fire. Just over 20 years ago, a similar experience happened to newly-elected Prosecutor Paul Gains when someone shot him. “That judge will never be the same,” Gains said on Monday. “He’ll always be wondering.” The night someone tried to take his life is still fresh in his memory. “When somebody attempts to assassinate you, it’s personal and it’s different than combat. Combat’s not personal but this is personal,” he said. In December of 1996, a man walked right inside Gains’ home and shot him in the arm and side. Then the gun jammed. Gains recovered and eventually, the gunman went to prison but Gains said an attack like that changes you forever. “It let me know that I was mortal and, of course, I take precautions now that I wouldn’t have otherwise taken.” Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said Judge Bruzzese was taking precautions at his suggestion. “I urged him years ago to carry a gun. If you’re sitting on a bench, you have to carry a gun because there’s so many nut cases out there that want retaliation.” Abdalla said that made all the difference when it came to saving Bruzzese’s life on Monday. The Associated Press reports that Bruzzese managed to fire back before the probation officer stepped in. “Every judge should be armed. Today, in America? Every judge, every prosecutor should be armed. It’s a crazy world,” Abdalla said. Gains agrees but said knowing how to use that gun is just as important. “The concealed carry permit only requires you to qualify once but they should practice, and practice, and practice and apparently, this judge did.” “If any judge could do it, he could,” Abdalla said. “He’s an avid sportsman, a hunter. He loves guns.” Gains said he’s thankful to hear Judge Bruzzese will likely be okay but that it’ll be a long road to recovery. “Just to learn how to deal with it because he will suffer from PTSD because it’s personal.” Bruzzese is 65 years old. He was out of surgery and doing well Monday night. He is one of two judges serving in the Jefferson County Common Pleas Court — which he has served on since 1997 — and hears general and domestic relations cases.

|Wellsville High seminar warns of teen drug, alcohol use and tricksWYTV / 9 h. 19 min. ago more|
WELLSVILLE, Ohio (WYTV) – Many new things are thrown at kids when they get to high school — jobs, driving a car, more freedom. But sometimes drugs and alcohol also get thrown into that mix. An Ohio group wants to make sure the community is caught up with the times and tricks that some teenagers these days have up their sleeves. “It kind of amazes me that they have so many ways of hiding their dope and the alcohol,” Joe Lascola said. “I’m very surprised at that.” Lascola wasn’t the only person in the crowd at Wellsville High School that was surprised by some of the ways people are hiding and storing drugs and alcohol nowadays. That’s why the Columbiana County Drug Task Force and the local school district brought in “Operation: Street Smart.” “It’s often a graduation process between the alcohol, the marijuana, to the cocaine and then eventually off onto the opioids that we’re seeing,” Bryan McGlaughlin said. The program was put on by officers from the Franklin County Sheriff Office. Concealing and consuming — and new drug and alcohol terminology — were all taught to show parents and the community exactly what they need to be looking out for and discussing with teens. “Pay attention to what your kids are doing, pay attention to who their friends are,” McGlaughlin said. “Know their friends, know your kids.” Flashlights, nuts and bolts and even batteries were among different tools they found either on people in searches or sold in smoke or novelty shops. They said it’s time to reach out to the kids to put an end to the alcohol and drug epidemic.
|Liberty PD: Drunk man punched officer in face, cursed policeWYTV / 9 h. 35 min. ago more|
LIBERTY TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – Police arrested a man who they said punched an officer at a Liberty motel Saturday afternoon. Police responded to Motel 30 on Motor Inn Drive just before 3 p.m. for a noise complaint. Officers said 33-year-old Balentin Enamorado Barrera was drunk and trying to start fights with other people staying at the motel. When police told him to quiet down and go back to his room, they said he clenched his fists, puffed out his chest, and stared at one of the officers, as if challenging him to a fight. According to a police report, Enamorado Barrera said, “F*** the police” in Spanish. Police said he still refused to go back to his room and continued to shout at others in the motel through the doors. As officers tried to arrest Enamorado Barrera, they said he punched one of them in the face. They were able to handcuff him and arrest him on charges of assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest.

|Dangerous chemical levels prompt Shenango River fish warningWYTV / 12 h. 27 min. ago more|
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WYTV) – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is warning people to not eat fish from the Shenango River in Mercer and Lawrence counties. The department said “extremely high” levels of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) has been found in the water. The levels are over ten times the “no consumption” limit. PCBs have been shown to cause cancer and negative effects on the immune system, reproductive system, nervous system, endocrine system, and other organs. The advisory is for all fish in the river and affects the Shenango Lake Dam to the mouth of the river in New Castle. It’s not known where the PCB is coming from. The dangerous chemical compound could remain in the river for decades if it isn’t properly cleaned from the water.
|Senate to discuss, take action on Kasich’s budget bill vetoesWYTV / 12 h. 27 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WYTV) – It has been six weeks since the Ohio State House of Representatives overrode 11 of Governor John Kasich’s state budget line item vetoes. Tuesday afternoon, the 33 state senators could finish what they started. The 24 Republicans and nine Democrats will discuss and likely vote to override some of the vetoes for the first time in nearly 40 years. Governor Kasich vetoed 47 total items out of the nearly 4,000-page, $133 billion budget. Almost all of his vetoes were related to Medicaid. Just because the GOP has a super-majority in both the House and the Senate, overriding Kasich’s vetoes may not be easy. According to Senator Bob Peterson, Republicans from different parts of Ohio may have different feelings on a particular issue that put them at odds with other members of the GOP. However, Senator Kenny Yuko expects the voting on Tuesday will be very similar to what was seen coming out of the House votes at the beginning of July. Still, both legislators say input from constituents can make a difference. “You saw what happened in Washington [D.C.] with the Affordable Healthcare Act; people were calling right up until the very last second,” said Yuko. “The people’s opinions do count.” All it will take to overturn the Governor’s vetoes will be 20 votes, and with 24 Republicans in the Senate, Yuko says it will be difficult but not impossible to keep the vetoes in place. “We may or may not get our way, and that’s just the way it goes,” said Yuko. “When you have a majority of 24 to nine, it does make it certainly very challenging.” Still in question is which of the 11 House vetoes will be discussed. Because the Senate can only act on the vetoes the members of the House pass, only the 11 current vetoes are a potential candidate. Peterson says the decision on which vetoes won’t be made until Tuesday. “I think we are likely to take up several of them, but as far as which ones specifically, that will be determined tomorrow morning before we have session,” said Peterson. The session to discuss the vetoes is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in the Senate Chambers. Here is a list of legislators with links to their personal pages where you will find their contact information.
|Maple Heights teen charged with robbery of Warren storeWYTV / 12 h. 28 min. ago more|
WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Maple Heights teen was arrested, charged with the armed robbery of a Warren store over the weekend. Police arrested 18-year-old Christohn Harvey early Saturday morning. He’s charged with robbing the LLC Market on Palmyra Road. After receiving a call from the store, an officer spotted two men running nearby, on Parkman Road SW. Police said the suspects were wearing masks and one was carrying a bag, believed to be stolen property. The officer began chasing the men at which time one of the men stumbled and dropped the bag, spilling change onto the grass. Both suspects then continued running on Oak Street SW and Pearl Street SW, according to a police report. Police said after being surrounded by officers, one of the suspects — identified as Harvey — dropped a loaded gun and surrendered. Police said he was also found with a pocket knife. An employee of the store said two men with masks jumped through the drive-thru window, pointing guns at him. He said they then stole cash from the register and Black and Mild and White Owl cigars. Police said the cash and cartons of cigars were found in the back yard of a home on Pearl Street SW. Harvey pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Monday and is due in court again on Thursday.
|Warren robbery victim said suspect told him he was ‘going to jail anyway’WYTV / 12 h. 28 min. ago more|
WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police arrested two suspects over the weekend who they say tried to rob a man at the Sunoco gas station. The victim called police just before 2 a.m. Saturday to report the attempted robbery. He said he was standing outside near the door when a maroon-colored SUV pulled up to one of the pumps. He said a passenger then got out, holding a gun, and told him to follow him to the back of the store. The victim refused and told police a customer then pulled up to a nearby pump, causing the SUV to leave the area. Before it left, the victim was able to get the car’s license plate number, according to a police report. Police spotted the vehicle at a house on Cherry Avenue NW and ordered 35-year-old John Boyers out of the house. Police said 27-year-old Patrick McCombs was found hiding in the basement, and he was also arrested. Police said two guns were found in the basement, one of which was reported stolen. The victim identified McCombs as the man who tried to rob him. He said during the robbery attempt, McCombs threatened to shoot him, saying, “I’m going to prison anyway.” Boyers and McCombs face robbery and probation violation charges. They pleaded not guilty and are due in Warren Municipal Court at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
|Troopers say Sunday’s 2 deadly crashes have one thing in commonWYTV / 12 h. 29 min. ago more|
CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – It may be another week before accident reports are complete but troopers with the Ohio State Highway Patrol say they’ll be talking to prosecutors about Sunday’s two deadly crashes. “We will be filing charges of some sort but exactly what charges will be up to the prosecutor,” Lt. Jerad Sutton said. Within an hour of each other, troopers responded to accidents on Mahoning Avenue in North Jackson and Market Street Extension in North Lima on Sunday afternoon. In the first, they said a 17-year-old lost control of his Jeep, veered off the road, and hit 65-year-old Thomas Smith, of Warren, who was pushing his out-of-gas motorcycle on the berm. In the other, a 16-year-old lost control of his SUV, jumped the curb, and collided with a Jeep driven by Michael Helon, of Poland, which was sitting in a driveway off the road. Troopers say in both cases, the young drivers were not paying attention. “Whether that inattention being they’re looking at the radio, focused on something else on their cell phone,” Sutton said. Although neither of the teenagers is being identified, investigators confirm they seized the cell phone belonging to the one in the North Lima crash. “Crash stats continue to go up, showing that distraction is a factor in more and more crashes every year,” Sutton said. He recently put together a map of Northeast Ohio, showing trouble spots for distracted driving crashes. The areas in red are the worst and one of them is right in the heart of Mahoning County. Map of distracted driving trouble spots Sutton blames the problem on drivers trying to multitask. “Cars are smarter than they ever were before. So you have all these safety features put into the car to prevent people from using a device while they’re driving but people just aren’t taking advantage of them,” he said. In these cases, Sutton said it was a recipe for disaster. “There’s plenty of places you can multitask. Sitting on your couch, behind your desk at work — those are the times to multitask. Behind the wheel of a car is not the time to multitask.”

|Painting of Confederate general captured in East Liverpool removed from state parkWYTV / 14 h. 4 min. ago more|
CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (AP) – A painting of a Confederate general has been removed from a state park lodge in eastern Ohio. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources oversees the parks and made the decision. A department spokesman tells The Daily Jeffersonian in Cambridge that the canvas painting of Confederate general John Hunt Morgan is in storage after being removed from the Salt Fork State Park Lodge. The painting shows Morgan on horseback and another soldier holding a Confederate battle flag. Morgan led a raid through Ohio during the Civil War in 1863 before he and his men were captured near East Liverpool. He escaped and fled Ohio but was later killed. Several Ohio cities have removed Confederate markers in the wake of last week’s violent white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. (Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

SEBRING, Ohio (WYTV) – Police said a North Benton man punched an officer after a traffic stop in Sebring on Sunday night. An officer pulled over the driver after she failed to stop at a light on Ohio Avenue and 15th Street, according to a police report.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Classes aren’t even in session yet but some kids returned to school on Monday for eclipse viewing parties. “I so badly want to share this with my students, past and present, and I think it’s just an awesome way to start the year,” said Megan Turillo, a 5th grade science teacher at Boardman. The last solar eclipse visible from the United States was in 1979. That eclipse is what sparked Turillo’s interest in science. Now she’s hoping Monday’s eclipse has the same effect. “If we can get anybody excited about science — the girls, the boys, anybody — and spark their interest in it, this could be a big deal,” Turillo said. Photos: Solar eclipse in the Valley Kids got to experience the eclipse at Boardman’s football stadium, which hosted a watch party. Special solar eclipse glasses were on hand so people could watch it safely. Using a special solar filter on a camera, the stadium displayed the cosmos on its Jumbotron. “We’re going to get the full aspect. We’re not in total totality but we are going to see a significant display with those shades on,” Turillo said. Lordstown doesn’t go back to school for two days but it still had eager families waiting in line 30 minutes before it handed out eclipse glasses. “I’ve already thought about how I’m going to incorporate that on day one,” said Rochelle Morgan, a science teacher at Lordstown High School. “Grill my kids — ‘You’ve better have watched the eclipse on Monday,’ and have them tell about it and maybe they can explain what is happening up there.” .

|Warren Police: Suspects stole drugs from overdose victim’s pocketsWKBN / 15 h. 10 min. ago more|
WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police say a Newton Falls man and a Warren woman rummaged through the pockets of a woman who was overdosing, trying to steal from her. Friday afternoon, police got the call about an overdose near Oak Street and Nevada Avenue. A 49-year-old woman was sitting against a telephone pole in the area and was unconscious. The caller told police that he witnessed a man and woman, later identified as Anthony Santone, II and Tabitha Kelm, attempt to drag the woman into the tall grass on the side of the road. He said he yelled over to Santone and Kelm that they couldn’t leave the woman in the grass and said they then dragged her over to the telephone pole and began going through her pockets. The caller said Santone and Kelm took drugs out of the woman’s pockets and ran down Nevada Avenue, according to a police report. Police gave naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose, to the woman, and she regained consciousness. When asked about the drugs in her pockets, the woman told police that she had Klonopin, but it was missing, according to a police report. The woman said she recently met the man and woman, who she said she knew as Phil and Sandy. Police stopped Santone and Kelm walking on Parkman Road and said they appeared to be under the influence of drugs. Santone told police that the woman said she was fine and to leave her. He denied dragging her into the grass, according to the report. Police didn’t find the drugs but said Kelm had two cut straws in her purse, which they believed were used to snort drugs. Both were taken to the Trumbull County Jail — Kelm on drug paraphernalia charges and Santone on a robbery charge. When questioned later, Santone told police that he was looking for $3 from the woman’s pockets. He said she owed him money and he was trying to get it back. .
