COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio officials plan to outline the job-creation duties of a new nonprofit entity during a series of meetings around the state that begin Tuesday.
The semiprivate JobsOhio corporation was created by the Gov. John Kasich earlier this year to lead the state's economic development efforts. As a result, the state Department of Development is to report to the legislature by Thursday what functions should move from the state agency to JobsOhio.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A report says Ohio is worse than half of other states when it comes to hunger, with more than one in four families lacking the means to buy food in the past 12 months.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Ohio is 20th for food hardship in the analysis released Thursday by the anti-hunger group Food Research and Action Center. The state has seven of the 100 most troubled metropolitan areas, worse than all but one state.
