Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he wants to hear from local communities on handling economic challenges in the wake of voters' rejection of a law that would have placed new limits on public employee unions.
Kasich on Monday said in a review of his first year in office that communities can't tax their way to prosperity, but that the people have spoken on curbing collective bargaining rights. The law was rejected 62 percent to 38 percent.
He said one of the lesson learned from the referendum is that officials need to build a case for making change.
A retirement community in southwest Ohio plans to offer an elder abuse center for older people who need shelter.
Officials of Cedar Village Retirement Community in Mason say they will take referrals from police, emergency rooms and social services agencies beginning in January. The center will initially serve people from four Cincinnati area counties.
