It was the first time the trio has been seen together publically since their escape.  Kasich honored them with the 2014 Ohio Courage Medals.

Ohio Lawmaker Wants Kasich Speech at Statehouse

A Youngstown-area state lawmaker is protesting Ohio Gov. John Kasich's plans to deliver his State of the State speech outside Columbus again this year.
