BOLIVAR, Ohio — A Giant Eagle employee was accused of stealing over $ 9,200 worth of deli meat.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Lawrence Township Giant Eagle loss prevention manager received a tip that an employee had been eating meat in the deli.

The manager reportedly told authorities that the employee had allegedly eaten three to five pieces of ham every day over the course of eight years.

According to the Dispatch, the manager calculated that the cost of all the eaten ham and it was approximately a $ 9,200 loss.

A deputy with the Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Department told the Dispatch that the 28-year-old employee admitted to the theft on Friday and “was very cooperative.”

The Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office clarified on Facebook Saturday that they did take report of the issue as requested by Giant Eagle, but no determination of charges have yet been made.  As procedure, they have sent the report to the Prosecutor’s Office who will make the decision.

Obama to Hit Campaign Trail for Democrats in California and Ohio

Siphiwe Sibeko

Former President Barack Obama will finally leap back into the political fray this weekend, campaigning for various Democratic candidates ahead of this fall’s crucial midterm elections.

In his first stop, Obama will campaign in Orange County, California, a typically Republican stronghold where Democrats now hope to flip congressional seats in November.

On Saturday, the former president will rally with seven Democratic congressional candidates, including Josh Harder (CA-10), TJ Cox (CA-21), Katie Hill (CA-25), Gil Cisneros (CA-39), Katie Porter (CA-45), Harley Rouda (CA-48) and Mike Levin (CA-49). These districts are all significant to the Democratic party’s attempts to regain a majority in the House of Representatives, as they are Republican-held but won by Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer Suspended for Three Games for Mishandling Abuse Allegations

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio State on Wednesday night suspended head football coach Urban Meyer three games for mishandling domestic violence accusations, punishing one of the sport’s most prominent leaders for keeping an assistant on staff for several years after the coach’s wife accused him of abuse.

The move followed a two-week investigation into how Meyer reacted to accusations that former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith abused his ex-wife, Courtney Smith. Zach Smith was fired last month after she asked a judge for a protective order.

Courtney Smith alleged her husband shoved her against a wall and put his hands around her neck in 2015. The university put Meyer on paid leave and began an investigation after Courtney Smith spoke out publicly, sharing text messages and photos she traded in 2015 with Meyer’s wife, Shelley Meyer. Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and instructor at Ohio State.

Trustees discussed the decision to punish Meyer in a marathon meeting Wednesday while Meyer awaited the decision.

The investigation prompted a tweet from Meyer in which he insisted he followed proper protocols after learning of the 2015 accusations. But he also acknowledged lying to reporters a week earlier when he said he hadn’t heard of the incident until shortly before he fired Zach Smith.

The probe directly centered on the question of what Meyer knew and when. Meyer said in his tweet that he always elevated issues through the proper channels, and did so with the Smith situation in 2015. That contradicted what he told reporters at Big Ten media day a week earlier: “I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. I’ve never had a conversation about it. I know nothing about it.”

Speaking after the investigation was announced, Zach Smith said he spoke with Meyer at the time and athletic director Gene Smith also knew about the allegations.

Zach Smith said Meyer told him he would be fired if the head coach found out Smith had hit his wife.

Zach Smith — the grandson of late Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce — has never been criminally charged or convicted of abuse. He has a charge of criminal trespass pending, and the Smiths are due in court next month for a hearing on a restraining order Courtney Smith was granted July 20.

Meyer was heading into his seventh season at Ohio State, where he is 73-8 with a national title in 2014 and two Big Ten Conference championships. Ohio State’s Title IX sexual misconduct policy includes reporting allegations of domestic violence made against university employees.

Violating that policy allows Meyer to be fired with cause, according to provisions placed in his contract when it was extended in April by two years. The deal through 2022, increasing Meyer’s salary to $ 7.6 million in 2018, with annual 6 percent raises. Meyer had about $ 38 million left on his contract.

Ohio State’s season starts Sept. 1 with a game against Oregon State in Columbus.

In 2009, Zach Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his pregnant wife while he was working a graduate assistant for Meyer at Florida. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016.

Meyer is one of the most accomplished coaches in college football history, with three national championships and a 177-31 record in 16 seasons at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State, the team he grew up rooting for in Northeast Ohio.

Meyer won national championships with Florida in 2006 and ’08, but his teams also had more than two dozen players get into trouble with the law. He resigned twice at Florida, citing health reasons, first in the 2009 season after the Gators lost the Southeastern Conference championship game while trying to repeat as national champs. He changed his mind soon after and coached another season. The Gators went 8-5 in 2010, and afterward, Meyer stepped down for good.

Meyer was out of coaching for a season but was hired by Ohio State in November 2011. The Buckeyes had fired Jim Tressel, another national championship-winning coach, before that season for lying to the NCAA and university about rules violation committed by some of his players.

Since returning to coaching, Meyer’s program has been one of the most dominant in college football, and his players have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

Meyer faced some criticism in 2013 for allowing running back Carlos Hyde to return to the team after he was charged with striking a woman in a bar. The case was dropped by police when the woman chose not to pursue charges, but Hyde was suspended three games.

The Meyer investigation cost $ 500,000 and was conducted by the national law firm Debevoise & Plimpton.

Ohio State began investigating Meyer while also facing three federal lawsuits about its response to allegations of groping, leering and other misconduct by a deceased athletic department doctor who treated wrestlers and other students for two decades. The lawsuits alleging sexual abuse by Dr. Richard Strauss say Ohio State facilitated the abuse by ignoring complaints.

Since Ohio State announced an independent investigation in April, more than 100 former students have come forward with accounts of sexual misconduct by Strauss. The allegations range from 1979 to 1997 and involve male athletes from 14 sports, as well as his work at the student health center and his off-campus medical office.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer Gets a Wrist Slap, Shows Little Remorse

College coaches and athletes have faced more severe punishments than the three-game suspension Ohio State handed its head football coach, Urban Meyer, on Wednesday evening. For less serious offenses. Tennessee once fired basketball coach Bruce Pearl for lying to investigators about hosting recruits at a cookout, since such niceties are NCAA violations. This month, nine football players from the University of North Carolina, which like all major college programs does not pay its football players a market wage despite the millions of dollars those players deliver their school, were suspended for four games for selling team-issued shoes.

But Meyer got just three games, even though an independent investigation led by former prosecutor and Securities and Exchange Commission chair Mary Jo White found that the Ohio State coach failed to properly handle domestic violence allegations against a former assistant coach.

Meyer also told a whopper of a lie to the public on June 24, when he said at Big Ten media day that he was unaware of 2015 domestic accusations against assistant coach Zach Smith, made by his ex-wife Courtney Smith. Meyer later apologized “for the way I handled those questions” at the media event, insisting that he “was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media.”

At a press conference at Ohio State Wednesday night, White said that while Meyer’s denials about his knowledge of the 2015 domestic violence allegations against Smith “were plainly not accurate, Coach Meyer did not, in our view, deliberately lie.”

Put aside, if you wish, the believability of Meyer accidentally fibbing about a serious, straightforward issue: his knowledge of domestic violence allegations against one of his coaches. (White’s report itself says “we cannot logically square Coach Meyer’s responses on Big Ten Media Days broadly denying knowledge of the 2015 events regarding Zach Smith with his extensive knowledge of those events in 2015,” but then goes on to note that Meyer “sometimes has significant memory issues” and “has also periodically taken medicine that can negatively impact his memory, concentration, and focus”).

All in all, Meyer got off pretty easy. He did not lose his job. Sure, after missing games against Oregon State and perennial Big Ten weak link Rutgers — both of which Ohio State should win — Meyer will have to sit out Ohio State’s game against No. 16-ranked Texas Christian University in Arlington, Texas. Still, he’ll coach the bulk of the season. He’s missing just one Big Ten conference game. He can even run practice before the Rutgers and TCU games. He can coach against arch-rival Michigan on Nov. 24.

But in watching Wednesday night’s press conference in Columbus, Ohio, after Ohio State President Michael V. Drake announced Meyer’s suspension (and the suspension of Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith from Aug. 31-Sept. 16 for management failure), you never would have known that Meyer got a slap on the wrist. His body language, and responses to reporters’ questions, sent a message that he felt he was the aggrieved party.

He rushed through reading a pre-written statement, robotically going through the motions. He sometimes asked reporters to repeat their questions, as if he couldn’t be bothered to pay attention. Meyer often appeared disengaged. When a reporter asked Meyer if he agreed with Drake’s decision to suspended him, Meyer pointedly didn’t say “yes.” Instead, he replied “I trust and support our president.” He clearly doesn’t believe he should have been suspended. Meyer believes he followed the proper internal reporting protocols about Smith’s behavior.

“I’m fully aware that I’m ultimately responsible for the situation that has harmed the university as a whole and our university athletics program. I followed my heart, not my head,” Meyer said at the press conference. “I should have done more, and I am sorry for that.”

None of Ohio State leaders at the press conference — Drake, Gene Smith, and Meyer — offered direct words to Courtney Smith, who shared text messages with college football reporter Brett McMurphy showing bruises and her 2015 communication with Meyer’s wife, Shelly Meyer, alerting her to the alleged abuse. (Zach Smith has denied the accusations of domestic violence). At the end of the press conference, a journalist gave Meyer an opening. “What message do you have for Courtney Smith?” he asked.

His reply was strikingly impersonal. “Well, I have a message for everyone involved in this,” Meyer said. “I’m sorry we’re in this situation.” He stared blankly at the reporter for a beat. “I’m just sorry we’re in this situation.”

Did Urban Meyer Know? Ohio State Football Coach on Leave Pending Investigation

Urban Meyer’s job appears to be in jeopardy.

Ohio State placed Meyer, one of the most successful coaches in college football history, on paid administrative leave Wednesday while it investigates claims that his wife knew about allegations of domestic violence against an assistant coach years before the staff member was fired last week.

Courtney Smith gave an interview to Stadium and provided text messages to former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy between her and Shelley Meyer in 2015 and with the wives of other Buckeyes coaches. Courtney Smith also provided threatening texts she said came from her ex-husband, former Ohio State assistant Zach Smith.

“Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban,” Courtney Smith told Stadium. “I said: ‘That’s fine, you should tell Urban.’”

Zach Smith was fired last week after an Ohio court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith.

Meyer is heading into his seventh season at Ohio State, where he is 73-8 with a national title in 2014 and two Big Ten Conference championships. Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and is employed as an instructor at Ohio State. Both Meyer and his wife could be in violation of Ohio State’s Title IX sexual misconduct policy on reporting allegations of domestic violence against university employees.

Violation of university’s policy could result in Meyer being fired with cause by the university, according to provisions placed in his contract when it was extended by two years in April. The new deal runs through 2022 and increases Meyer’s salary to $ 7.6 million in 2018, with annual six percent raises for the bulk of his compensation.

Hours after Courtney Smith’s interview was posted online Wednesday, Ohio State announced in a short news release it was conducting an investigation into the allegations and Meyer was being placed on leave.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will serve as acting head coach for the Buckeyes, expected to be one of the top teams in the nation again this season. Ohio State’s first preseason practice is scheduled for Friday. The season starts Sept. 1 with a game against Oregon State in Columbus, Ohio.

Meyer said in a statement he and athletic director Gene Smith agreed that his being on leave was best for the investigation.

“This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter.” Meyer said.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass. At the time of the charge, Zach Smith’s attorney said Courtney Smith had accused him of driving to her apartment after she told him they would meet elsewhere so he could drop off their son. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

Zach Smith was also accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife in 2009 while he was a graduate assistant on Meyer’s staff at Florida. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence. Urban Meyer brought Smith, the grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, to Ohio State in 2012. Meyer worked for Bruce and considers him a mentor.

Two police reports filed in 2015 in Ohio’s Powell County, after the Smiths separated in June of that year, accused Zach Smith of abuse. Charges were never filed.

At Big Ten media days, Meyer said he knew of the incident in 2009 and that he and Shelley Meyer addressed it with the Smiths. He was also asked about the 2015 incident alleged by Courtney Smith.

“I can’t say it didn’t happen because I wasn’t there,” he replied. “I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. I’ve never had a conversation about it. I know nothing about it. First I heard about that was last night. No, and I asked some people back at the office to call and say what happened and they came back and said they know nothing about it.”

The Smiths divorced in 2016.

Meyer is on the short list of most accomplished coaches in college football history, with three national championships and an .851 winning percentage in 16 seasons at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and now Ohio State, the team he grew up rooting for in Northeast Ohio.

Meyer won national championships with Florida in 2006 and ’08, but his teams also had more than two dozen players get into trouble with the law. He resigned twice at Florida, citing health reasons. First in 2009 season after the Gators lost the Southeastern Conference championship game while trying to repeat as national champs. He changed his mind soon after and coached another season. The Gators went 8-5 and this time he stepped down for good.

Meyer was out of coaching for a season, but was hired by Ohio State in November 2011 to replace Jim Tressel, who was fired before that season for lying to the NCAA and university of about rules violation committed by some of his players.

Since returning to coaching, Meyer’s program has been one of the most dominant in college football and his players and coaches have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

Meyer did face some criticism in 2013 for allowing running back Carlos Hyde to return to the team after he was charged with striking a woman in a bar. The case was dropped by police when the woman chose not to pursue charges, but Hyde was suspended three games by Ohio State.

Lebron James’s I Promise School Aims to Help Akron, Ohio Students

LeBron James is giving back to his community in a major way. As he prepares to hit the court as a Los Angeles Laker, the NBA superstar has opened up school to aid and uplift struggling students in Akron, Ohio.

“We are going to be that groundbreaking school that will be a nationally recognized model for urban and public school excellence,” shares Brandi Davis, principal of LeBron James’ new I Promise school “We are letting people know it is about true wrap-around support, true family integration and true compassion.”

The I Promise school is a collaboration between the City of Akron, Akron Public Schools and the LeBron James Family Foundation. The concept behind the school has been put together for a few years now, and its name was born out of the foundation’s desire to help “students who promise to go to school, do their homework, listen to teachers, ask questions and find answers, be respectful of others and live a healthy life.”

“Looking at reading data, we identified students who were a year, two years behind in reading,” explains Keith Liechty, Akron Public Schools’ liaison to the LeBron James Family Foundation. “From that, we had more than 120 kids. We had to put a cap on it so we could fit under one roof. We did a random selection of all students who met that criteria.”

“Every one of these kids, maybe they don’t become LeBron James on the basketball court, but they become the LeBron James of their passion and dream in life,” says Michele Campbell, the LeBron James Family Foundation’s executive director. “We’re coming to them at a time when people came to LeBron and Gloria and wrapped around them and believed in them before he was this great basketball player.”

The I Promise school opened up this Monday, and LeBron James — along with members of his foundation — and several public officials from the City of Akron and its public school system were on hand for the opening. You can check out a list of what the school is offering — for free — below.

Earlier this month, LeBron James’s agent revealed how his free agency decision was made.

Ohio Teacher Threatens 13-Year-Old Student With A Lynching


If you are a teacher who resorts to lynching threats to get your students to work — it’s time to find a new gig.

According to Tanisha Agee-Bell, a white teacher at Mason Middle School in Mason, Ohio threatened her 13-year-old son with a lynching if he didn’t get back to work. WLWT5 reports that the teacher admitted to saying, “If you don’t get back on task, your friends are going to form an angry mob and lynch you.”

Bell complained and is asking for the teacher to be removed from the classroom. However, the school is defending the teacher, the Associated Press reports, “Mason schools spokeswoman Tracey Carson says educators sometimes ‘mess up.’ She says the teacher did not mean to offend the student.” Didn’t mean to offend? What exactly did the teacher “mean” to do — give the child a warm feeling of learning by using language from Jim Crow? The Associated Press continues,  “The district says in a statement that it has seen an uptick in racially insensitive comments, sometimes arising from ‘genuine ignorance.’ Officials have pledged to continue providing cultural sensitivity training.”

Agee-Bell told WLWT5, “For her not to understand that the words that she said were a direct pull from what has been, what was a practice in the United States, is unacceptable. She shouldn’t be in the classroom. She shouldn’t be in the classroom at all,” She continued, “And I’m not saying she should never go back in the classroom, but until she can demonstrate that she understands what the impact of the language that she used and what she did can have, has had on my son, has on his peers and is having on our community, then she doesn’t need to be in the classroom.” Watch the video below:

What an awful apology from a school district. Was the teacher disciplined at all? Now the 13-year-old has to look at the teacher every day who used language like “lynch.” Sounds like the school district needs serious cultural sensitivity training.

Greg Schiano calls current Ohio St. D-line most talented he’s coached

Official Reveals the Cause of Deadly Ohio State Fair Ride Accident That Killed Teen

The manufacturer of an Ohio amusement park ride that broke apart, leading to the death of an 18-year-old last month, was caused by “excessive corrosion,” an official reportedly said.

Tyler Jarrell was killed and several more people were injured at the Ohio State Fair when the Fire Ball ride spun out of control, sending people flying through the air. Now, an official with the ride’s Dutch manufacturer says the ride was nearly 20-years-old, resulting in the “catastrophic failure,” CNN reports.

Albert Kroon, with KMG International, said in a statement that investigators have determined that “excessive corrosion on the interior of the gondola support beam dangerously reduced the beam’s wall thickness over the years,” according to CNN.

Kroon added that the company is working with safety experts to “develop an inspection protocol” to prevent future accidents.

The incident occurred at around 7:20 p.m. on July 26. Video footage of the malfunction showed the showed a large part of the structure flying into the air as bystanders screamed.

“We heard commotion on the ride. There was people on the ride like, ‘slow it down, it’s too fast,’ ” one witness, Julian Bellinger, told Good Morning America of the Fire Ball ride at the Columbus fair. “When I the people fall out, I just turned my head and I couldn’t watch it.”

Jarrell, of Columbus, died at the scene. In the wake of the incident, many who knew the teen told PEOPLE that he was heading into his senior year of school and had recently enlisted in the U.S. Marines.

“He was a very selfless person, he would always put others first,” Dillon Evans told PEOPLE of his friend.

“He loved to serve his community, so he wanted to serve his country. He was always doing things for people. He was ready to serve his country in all ways possible.”
