EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - APRIL 9, 2013

GUN AT SCHOOL

A Toledo teenager admitted he brought a gun to Raymer Elementary School. The 15-year-old pleaded guilty in court today. A school employee found the loaded pistol inside the boy's coat last month. The judge has not set a sentencing date.

MURDERED EMU STUDENT

Family members of a murdered Eastern Michigan University student are asking for help solving the crime. Police say someone killed 23-year-old Julia Niswender back in December. Officers found he body inside an apartment. Family members say they'll pay $10,000 for information leading to the killer.

EDUCATION FUNDING

(AP) - Ohio House Republicans want to boost the amount of state aid districts get for each student while cutting back Governor John Kasich's "Straight A" fund for innovation by half. Kasich's education budget proposed spending $15.1 billion on K-12 education over the next two years, boosting funds to districts that are lagging behind in property values and household incomes.

POSTAL WORKER SENTENCED

(AP) - A federal judge has handed down an 18-month prison sentence for a former Ohio postal worker who stole gift cards from the mail and assaulted the federal agents who arrested him. At Tuesday's sentencing judge Algenon Marbley also ordered Terrence McLean to pay more than $2,600 to the victims, including nearly $2,300 in worker compensation for medical bills.

CHRYSLER RECALL

(AP) - Chrysler is recalling roughly 119,500 sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years because their air bag warning lights are illuminating for no reason. The maker also is recalling about 30,000 small SUVs because a faulty hose inside the gas tank can cause them to run out of fuel. The company says no injuries have occurred in either recall and it is making fixes for free.

GUN CONTROL

(AP) - The showdown now set for Thursday in the Senate over tough gun control measures isn't just a matter of straight party-line voting. Some Republicans say that while they don't support stricter background checks, they think there should be a debate and vote. But over a dozen GOP members have served notice they are planning on attempting to block a vote. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont says it would be a disgrace if no vote could take place.

CAMPUS STABBING

(AP) - Classes are to resume at a Houston-area community college campus tomorrow, just a day after a stabbing rampage wounded 14 people. Officials and witnesses say a student went on a building-to-building stabbing attack at the Lone Star University System CyFair campus in Cypress before he was subdued and arrested. A school spokesman says counselors will be available to talk with students and employees. They'll also visit the classes of those students who were victims of the rampage.

FORECLOSURE PAYMENTS

(AP) - The nation's largest banks will begin sending payments this week to millions of Americans who may have been wrongfully foreclosed on during the housing crisis. A total of $3.6 billion in cash will be distributed to 4.2 million borrowers who lost their homes or were at risk of foreclosure. Payments will range from $300 to 125,000. Around 80 percent of borrowers will receive $1,000 or less.

SPRING SNOW STORM

(AP) - It's been more like winter than spring for a large swath stretching from Wyoming to Chicago. A large storm brought heavy snow, high winds and rain. Stretches of Interstates 25 and 80 in Wyoming were closed for a while in the morning because of blowing snow. Freezing rain, snow and strong winds hit parts of Kansas and South Dakota. Some schools in Minnesota were forced to close early.
