COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Child advocates are pushing for help for families adopting older foster children and those with serious behavioral and mental health issues.
Most states focus money on recruiting parents, but once a child is adopted, few funds are directed to supporting the new families. Ohio's program offers adoptive parents up to $10,000 for services -- a drop from $20,000.
ST. MARYS, Ohio - A Cleveland company has received a 1 million dollar federal grant to help create a facility that would turn animal waste into energy near Grand Lake St Marys.
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown announced today (Monday) that Quasar Energy Group will use the U.S. Department of Agriculture grant for a methane digester. The 2.2 million dollar facility would turn manure into methane that can be used for heating and converted into alternative vehicle fuel.
