City Loan Helps Pay Off Debt To Schools

A $10 million dollar, low-interest loan the City of Akron made to the Akron Public Schools for their new school administration offices, is also going to help the city settle a long-owed debt to the schools.

Part of the loan will cover payments the city owed the schools, to make up for  tax abatements for businesses that set up shop in town. 

The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled that the state's death penalty sentencing law is constitutional, and has upheld the conviction of Maurice Mason, who raped and murdered a woman in Marion County back in 1993.

The high court ruled that the process Ohio juries go through when deciding whether or not the death penalty is appropriate, is substantially different from death penalty jury procedures in other states where the US Supreme Court found them unconstitutuional.
