CLEVELAND, Ohio - A Cleveland crackdown on flash mobs won't be enacted now that the city council has upheld the mayor's veto.
A measure that would have made it a crime to use social media or cell phones to pull together a crowd was approved unanimously by council members last month and then shot down by Mayor Frank Jackson. The Plain Dealer reports the council voted 14-2 on Wednesday not to override Jackson's first veto since he took office in 2006.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Transportation said it was looking into whether farmers should be required to have commercial driver's licenses to operate farm machinery. This week, WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports – that decision has been made.
DOT officials announced that they won't move forward with Commercial license requirement. Dozens of members of Congress from farm states in the Midwest wrote to the transportation department, asking that the idea be scrapped.
