EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - JANUARY 2, 2013

OHIO LAWMAKERS

(AP) - Congressional lawmakers from Ohio got behind the majority to pass the deal that avoided the so-called fiscal cliff of middle-class tax increases and spending cuts last night. All five House Democrats from Ohio voted in favor as the measure passed 257-167 Tuesday night. Ohio's House Republicans split, six voting in favor and seven against.

HOLIDAY FATALITIES

(AP) - The State Highway Patrol says six people died on Ohio roads during the New Year's holiday period. The fatal crashes on Monday and yesterday occurred in Franklin, Lucas, Meigs and Stark counties. A year ago, 14 people were killed during the New Year's holiday reporting period, which spanned four days instead of two and included a weekend.

CHILDREN MURDERED

(AP) - Child advocates in Toledo say the number of children killed last year shows that more needs to be done to protect young people. The Blade newspaper reports that 10 children in the Toledo area were victims of homicide in 2012 - the most since 1995. http://www.13abc.com/video?clipId=8125109&autostart=true

IDENTICAL TWINS GIVE BIRTH SAME DAY

(AP) - A pair of 19-year-old identical twins gave birth just hours apart on New Year's Eve to two baby boys at an Akron hospital. The Akron Beacon Journal reports Aimee and Ashlee Nelson weren't raised to do things alike and did not plan the births to come at the same time. In fact, their due dates were about a week apart. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/01/identical-twins-in-ohio-give-birth-two-hours-apart/

CLINTON DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL

(AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton has been released from a New York hospital. Doctors had been keeping an eye on the secretary of state after discovering a blood clot in her head during an MRI three days ago. A spokesman say Clinton's doctors are confident she will fully recover and describe her as "eager to get back to the office." Clinton's health issues started with a stomach virus that left her dehydrated and caused her to faint and hit her head. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/01/hillary-clinton-discharged-from-hospital/

FISCAL CLIFF UNCERTAINTY

(AP) - Economists are expressing concern that the "fiscal cliff" deal leaves much unresolved, most particularly how to bring down the nation's deficit. But, the fact that the House passed a compromise that avoids tax hikes for most Americans was enough to ignite a stock market rally today. The Dow jumped more than 300 points, registering its biggest gain in more than a year and closing just 5 percent below its record high.

CLIPPPERS OWNER'S SON FOUND DEAD

(AP) - The son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been found dead at his Malibu home. The Los Angeles County coroner's office says 32-year-old Scott Ashley Sterling's body was found yesterday after a worried friend told police he had not been heard from for several days. It's being called an "apparent drug overdose."

INVITATION "DISGUSTING"

(AP) - Relatives of those killed at a Colorado movie theater say an invitation to attend its planned reopening is a "disgusting offer" that came at a terrible time - right after the first Christmas without their loved ones. The invitation was sent by the theater's owner, suburban-Dallas based Cinemark. A letter from relatives sent to Cinemark called "a movie ticket and some token words" from people who never reached out to them "appalling." http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/01/aurora-shooting-victims-families-outraged-by-invitation-to-reopening/
