American Airlines says it has quote "stabilized" a computer system that failed at its Dayton-based affiliate carrier, causing the cancellation of 2,500 flights over the past week.

 The failure occurred in computers used to schedule crews for Dayton’s PSA Airlines, which is owned by American and operates many American Eagle regional flights.

A spokesperson said PSA stabilized the computer systems Tuesday morning, but that there would be some additional cancellations Wednesday as the airline repositioned planes and crews.

Ohio has licensed 56 locations that can sell medical marijuana once it becomes legal this fall.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy on Monday awarded those provisional dispensary licenses that give the stores six months to meet state operation requirements. A total of 376 applications were received.

The executive director of the National Cannabis Industry Association of Ohio, Thomas Rosenberger, says the board has ended months of speculation about where patients will be able to get medical marijuana.

U.S. immigration agents have made more than 100 arrests at an Ohio gardening company in the Trump administration's growing crackdown on employers for hiring people who are in the country illegally.

 The 114 arrests happened Tuesday morning at two locations of Corso's Flower & Garden Center, one in Sandusky and another in nearby Castalia. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it expects charges for crimes including identity theft and tax evasion.

No criminal charges have been filed against Corso's, but authorities say the employer is under investigation.

House Democrats are joining those calling for a speedy resolution to Ohio's impasse over selection of its next speaker.

House Minority Leader Fred Strahorn, of Dayton, says the Democrats favor holding a floor vote for speaker.

He added on Thursday that they don't want to change House rules to keep the chamber's temporary leader at the helm through year's end.

Republican Rep. Kirk Schuring, of Canton, has been in charge since then-Speaker Cliff Rosenberger left in April amid an FBI investigation.

U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, bolstered by the backing of President Donald Trump, won Tuesday's Republican primary to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown in Ohio this fall.

Renacci, 59, is in his fourth term in Congress and is a longtime businessman and former mayor of Wadsworth. He left the governor's race to campaign for Senate and emerged victorious in a five-way contest.

Republican Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, one of the state's best-known politicians, and Democrat Richard Cordray, who headed a federal consumer protection agency in the Obama administration, are headed into their third career match-up this fall after a raucous roller-coaster of a primary season left them damaged as they seek to replace Republican Gov. John Kasich.

November's general election will feature two moderates who fought off challenges from the Republican right and the Democratic left.

Authorities said Sunday they were reviewing a Miami Valley community's second fatal police shooting in a year's time after an officer shot and killed a suspect who a 911 caller described attacking a woman as she screamed.

Kettering Police Chief Christopher Protsman said the "violent confrontation" at an apartment in the suburb of Dayton, southwest of Columbus, was reported to police just after 11 p.m. Saturday. He said the officer entered alone and both the suspect and an officer discharged their firearms.

Cincinnati officials plan to make changes to improve operations at the city's emergency call center, which is under scrutiny after the failed response to a teen who was trapped in a vehicle and died after twice calling 911.

Mayor John Cranley, council members and other city officials were touring the center Monday. They say they plan to increase staffing and improve technology and working conditions there.

Cincinnati's 911 system has been plagued with problems and is facing renewed questions following the death of 16-year-old Kyle Plush.

Ohio University says its expansion into Greene County won't compete with other area universities.

The school's associate dean for industry partnerships says the university in southeastern Ohio plans to begin teaching professional development courses at a research center in Beavercreek. The Dayton Daily News reports the school is also planning to offer graduate school classes at a later point.

Associate Dean Scott Miller says the goal is to fulfill the educational needs for the area. There currently are no plans to offer undergraduate courses in the area.
