BG GUN VIOLENCE

Bowling Green's public information officer says city council members are taking up a resolution to reduce gun violence in BG.

It's also designed to more effectively regulate assault rifles such as the one used in last month's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Dozens of Toledo homeowners are no longer required to carry flood insurance after a ruling by FEMA.

The new designation means flood insurance is now optional for homeowners in that area.

STRICKLAND'S FUTURE
