NO TPS LEVY

Voters will not see a Toledo Public Schools levy renewal on the May ballot. Tonight the school board decided to table the issue to get more information before moving forward. The board says a future levy is not out of the question. Some on the board worried there wasn't enough time to prepare for the May election.

OREGON FIRE

Oregon firefighters battled a massive fire and frigid temperatures tonight. Crews were called to the 300 block of Lakeview around 8:30pm.

ACCUSED MOSQUE ARSONIST CHANGES MIND

(AP) - An Indiana man who said he set an Toledo-area mosque on fire to avenge American soldiers now wants to withdraw his guilty plea.

MICHIGAN WARMING CENTERS

(AP) - City officials in Detroit have announced longer hours at two warming centers set up to help people cope with the bitter cold snap.

DEBT CRISIS VOTE

(AP) - Republicans controlling the House are moving to try to avoid a potential debt crisis -- with a vote tomorrow on a measure that would prevent a first-ever default on U.S. obligations, at least for the next three months. Republicans are giving up for now on trying to extract spending cuts from Democrats in return for an increase in the government's borrowing cap. The administration says it won't oppose it.

PATERNO VIGIL

(AP) - A candlelight vigil has been held near the Penn State campus to mark the anniversary of the death of Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno. About 150 people gathered in front of a downtown mural that includes a depiction of Paterno. He died a year ago of lung cancer at age 85. His death came more than two months after he was fired in the fallout over the child sex abuse scandal involving retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
