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. Firefighters say the home was fully involved when they arrived on the scene. They were able to keep the fire from spreading to neighboring homes but the house itself was called a total loss.

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. Randy Lynn says he was in an emotional state and depressed when he entered a guilty plea last month. At that hearing the truck driver told a federal judge he thought most Muslims are terrorists.

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. The centers at Cass Community Social Services and Operation Get Down stayed open until noon today. Cass Community extends its hours whenever the forecast calls for temperatures of 20 degrees or lower and Operation Get Down extends hours when temperatures are 10 degrees or lower.

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.

CAMPUS SHOOTING

(AP) - They were both wounded and they're both considered people of interest for a campus shooting today at a Houston-area community college. Gunshots rang out at Lone Star College, north of downtown Houston. Officials say it started with a fight. A worker caught in the cross fire was injured and a fourth person had to be treated for a medical condition.

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.
