Eastman Kodak Co. has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. According to the company’s web-site, “the business reorganization is intended to bolster liquidity in the U.S. and abroad.” That means turning intellectual property into cash and focusing on its more valuable business lines.

One of Ohio's four new casinos is ready to interview candidates as it looks to fill hundreds of jobs.
The casino coming to Toledo holds the first of three job fairs on Tuesday to talk with people who applied for work online. Multiple media outlets report the openings are in food and beverage service, maintenance and janitorial work, security, gaming operations and cashiering.
The Toledo casino had hoped to open in the spring with 1,200 employees. However, a consultant has recommended a delay to allow more time for a licensing investigation.
