EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - NOVEMBER 20, 2012

BOMB PLOT

(AP) - Northern Ohio's top prosecutor says prison sentences have sent a message in the case of three men who plotted unsuccessfully to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio. U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach says the sentences handed down today in Akron show that anyone who tries to endanger the community will be held to account.

DANN'S LICENSE SUSPENDED

(AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court suspended the law license of former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann for six months. The ruling means Dann can't work as an attorney during the suspension and is punishment for his 2008 resignation amid a sexual harassment scandal. The state Disciplinary Counsel had asked for a year-long suspension.

STANDARDIZED TESTS

(AP) - State education leaders have agreed to replace the Ohio Graduation Test with a nationally standardized college readiness test, such as the ACT, and 10 subject-area exams. The college readiness test could be offered free to all Ohio sophomores as soon as next year under the timeline announced today by the state Education Department, Board of Regents and state school board.

DEER SEASON

(AP) - The firearms deer season in Michigan is off to a good start. State officials say hunting license sales are up 2 percent from the same point a year ago. The season opened last week and runs through November 30th.

HOUSE EXPLOSION ARRESTS

(AP) - Police in Indianapolis say no arrests have been made in connection with a house explosion that killed two people and destroyed at least five homers. Authorities say they are still serving search warrants and questioning people. The investigation is believed to be focused on a house occupied by a woman, her boyfriend and the woman's 12-year-old daughter. They were away at the time of the explosion, which killed a young couple next door.

OTC BIRTH CONTROL?

(AP) - The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is calling for birth control to be sold over the counter. A company would have to seek government permission first, and it's not clear if any are considering it. It also raises the question if birth control pills sold over the counter would still be covered by insurance.
