EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - JANUARY 7, 2013

COACH CHARGED WITH PORNOGRAPHY

(AP) - The attorney for a veteran Little League baseball administrator in southwest Ohio says the man denies child pornography allegations. Forty-nine-year -old Roger Fox was indicted last month on 14 counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor. The JournalNews of Hamilton reports his defense attorney says there are no allegations of improper contact with children.

STEUBENVILLE RAPE CASE

(AP) - Attorneys for two Steubenville High School football players facing rape accusations say they may try to have the case moved in order to protect possible witnesses. A spokesman for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says prosecutors will review all motions in the case.

ELECTRIC CAR NOISE

(AP) - The government wants all electric and hybrid vehicles to make some noise when traveling under 18 miles per hour so pedestrians can hear them coming. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the cars don't make enough noise at low speeds to warn walkers, bicyclists and the visually impaired. But the agency says the cars do make enough noise to be heard at higher speeds.

MOVIE THEATRE MASSACRE

(AP) - Police officers who responded to last summer's movie theater massacre in Colorado have been testifying at a preliminary hearing for the alleged shooter. A bearded, disheveled James Holmes showed no visible emotion, but officers struggled to hold back the tears as they described finding a 6-year-old girl without a pulse and trying to keep a wounded man from jumping out of a moving police car to go back for his 7-year-old daughter. The hearing is the first extensive public disclosure of evidence in the case.

CANCER DEATH RATES

(AP) - Researchers say death rates from cancer are inching down. The American Cancer Society's annual report on the disease finds cancer deaths among men dropped 1.8 percent a year between 2000 and 2009 and 1.4 percent a year among women. The decline is due mostly to treatment advances and better screening for lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers.

BONE-CONDUCTION HEADPHONES

(AP) - They are calling them bone-conduction headphones. At the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas electronics companies have been showcasing the latest innovations in televisions, computers and related technology. Panasonic says its new headphones are perfect for late night TV watchers who don't want to disturb sleeping family members. The wireless headsets fit like regular ones one but work like hearing aids, transmitting sound waves through the skull.
