Another Ohio Democrat - former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton - has said she won't run for governor in 2014, leaving the field nearly wide open for the only active candidate, Cuyahoga County executive Ed FitzGerald.

Pitching a tent in front of Great American Ball Park. Braving the cold night ahead. Reds fans who do this swear by, not at, the annual ritual for a number of reasons.

Cincinnati lawyer Stanley Chesley - for decades one of the leading class-action trial lawyers in the country - has been disbarred from practicing law in Kentucky over his actions in a diet drug settlement.

Because Ohio has a reciprocal agreement with Kentucky, Chesley, who lives in Indian Hill, could lose his license to practice law in Ohio too.
