Ohio Elections Chief Breaks Tie Over Ballot Count

Ohio's elections chief has sided with fellow members of the Republican party in breaking a tie vote over counting ballots in a disputed 2010 juvenile court election.

Secretary of State Jon Husted on Tuesday agreed that the Hamilton County Board of Elections in southwest Ohio should appeal a Feb. 8 court order requiring it to count hundreds of provisional ballots.

The Republican in the race holds a 23-vote lead over the Democrat, and the board's Democrats want the disputed votes tallied. The board's two Republicans say the ballots aren't eligible.

CINCINNATI, Ohio - A Cincinnati family suspected a snake was nearby when their dogs found large amounts of shed snakeskin in their backyard. But they didn't expect it to be a 14-foot, 120-pound reticulated python.

Nathaniel Allbright and his father, Alfred, tell The Cincinnati Enquirer one of their dogs found the snake Wednesday under a tarp.

Nathaniel Allbright says he fashioned a noose out of pipe and rope to transfer the snake into a trash can.
