Ohio teens might need to grab a bottle of self-tanner as lawmakers introduce a bill that will prohibit children and teens from using tanning beds. 

As News5 reports, current law allows kids and teens access to tanning beds with parental permission but House Bill 169 would prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from using tanning beds at all. 

Supporters say it’s about protecting kids, with tanning increasing the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma which is one of the most common cancers among young people. However others argue the bill is an example of government overreach and could hurt businesses.  

Meanwhile, the bill remains in committee and will likely be heard in the next few months.

Pokemon! You gotta catch 'em all, right? Well, turns out that the pursuit of those elusive creatures has gotten one Sandusky firefighter in big trouble.

19 News reports that 27-year-old Chase Green was arrested Friday night after allegedly trying to steal several boxes of Pokemon collector cards from Walmart. 

Police say that Green was seen on a security camera using the self-checkout and holding a pack of gum over the card’s bar codes while he pretended to scan them. Police claim Green told them he thought he could scan both items together.

The total value of the stolen cars was just over $85 dollars. Now the Sandusky Fire Chief says Green is on administrative leave until an internal investigation can be completed.

Bases & Balls 5.26.23

Written by

Guardians Broadcaster, Jim Rosenhaus, joins the Ray Horner Morning Show every Friday to talk baseball in 'Bases & Balls!'. This week's conversations begins with a discussion about Enyel De Los Santos and Xzavion Curry. They also talked about the bullpen, injuries, and upcoming games. 


You see them on TV all the time; images of dramatic car crashes, fires, and disasters, beamed down to viewers from helicopters.

 So, one would just kind of naturally kind of assume police have all that same kind of technology at their fingertips all the time, and that they can use it to fight crime whenever they want.

But they can’t —at least not yet—here in Ohio.

However, thanks to a $6 million dollar state grant, some new technology that has been tested so far in Columbus and Akron, will be deployed statewide. 

Listen now to our conversation with Ohio State Highway Patrol Aviation Commander, Lt. Justin Cromer, about how they will soon be able to give more local police departments assistance from internet-connected “eye in the sky” helicopters and airplanes.



A 27 year old woman is behind bars in Akron on charges of murder and felonious assault, for allegedly shooting 27 year old Brandon Colter, of Akron, near the intersection of 27th Street SW, and Carey Avenue at around 6:30 last evening (Wednesday, May 24).
Police say the suspect, Kaelyn Smith, and Colter got into an argument at a home on Kohler Avenue, and then after he and a companion drove away; she allegedly followed them, and fired shots into their car.
The Summit County Medical Examiner's office has ruled Colter's death a homicide, and after completing an autopsy; they have determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and neck.
**This story has been updated to include the name of the murder victim, and the cause of his death.

They called it "Operation We Will Find You", and between March 1st and May 15; that's exactly what they did.

US Marshals announced they found and returned 35 endangered children missing from Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Toledo, Youngstown and surrounding counties, as part of a national missing child operation conducted with other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

The search was far-reaching; extending from Ohio into California, Arizona, and West Virginia. In addition, they say there were critical risk factors attached to each of the cases, putting the children in elevated danger of physical or sexual abuse, neglect, substance abuse, or human trafficking.

According to US Marshall Pete Elliott, the main objective was to find as many critically missing children as possible. "The epidemic of missing children in our country needs a spotlight, it needs our focus. We hope operations like this sharpen that focus. Every child deserves a safe environment to grow up in, and we are dedicated to helping provide that for the children and families in Northern Ohio.”
