President Barack Obama’s campaign joined the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party in a lawsuit against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Tuesday over his decision to not allow early voting during the three days before Election Day. The suit was filed in United States District Court (Southern District of Ohio) in Columbus.

Last week, Husted made the tie breaking vote for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on whether people could vote early on the weekend before Election Day.

Last week, Husted made the tie breaking vote for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on whether people could vote early on the weekend before Election Day.

In the past, Husted has said he will send all registered Ohio voters an absentee ballot application before the election in an effort to reduce the days of in-person early voting at county board of elections offices.

In essence, the republican Secretary of State, Jon Husted, he discovered that Obama won many Ohio precincts with a larger turnout of voters the three days prior to election....so he's stopping this option for Democratic voters.

Security guards indicted in Dante Price death, Dayton Ohio

http://www.whiotv.com/news/news/local/security-guards-indicted-dante-price-death/nPrGg/

In light of the Trayvon Martin case, I thought we could appreciate a little healthy justice action. The Prosecutor, Matt Heck, he is a fine leader from the Montgomery County Democratic Party by the way....

I share this as I see similarities in comparison with the Martin-Zimmerman case. Security guards( white), go "cowboy" on unarmed young black man who was leaving the scene due to previous tresspassing issue.... no crime...

This stands out to me.... "the two guards exceeded their legal authority in trying to detain Price and by using deadly force to try to make him comply,"

Let me say this...thank you Matt Heck ..." They were not police officers,” Heck said. “They did not have any arrest powers.”

"Private citizens do not have the legal authority to detain someone for a misdemeanor", Heck said.

Here is a little more..

DAYTON, Ohio —
Two security guards who shot a man to death March 1 at the Summit Square apartments were indicted Wednesday on charges of murder and abduction.

The two were patrolling the parking lot at the apartment complex on Hoover Avenue when they saw Price, who had been trespassed off the property before. They pulled their guns and ordered him to stop. Instead, Price fled in his car, and the guards shot at him at least 17 times, Heck said.

List your favorite, go-to cookware.

I love my Le Creuset 2-Quart sauce pots...I have 2, one white and one red and they are both "Heart Shaped". I call them my love pots.

I have an old, well seasoned, cast iron, #8 Griswold dutch oven Tilt-Top Baster, dated inside the lid, February 10th, 1920. I use it to bake my no-knead bread daily.

Oh, I must not forget my "Martha"....a kitchen aid stand mixer....another classic which I got for $75 dollars at a garage sale in 1995. It is a Hobart Made mixer from the Greenville-Troy Ohio location.


I also love my other cast iron skillets, my all clad and 5.5 Qt. Le Creuset dutch oven. Additionally, got to thank the chef's above for silpats. I have favorite mixing bowls too....local from Ohio as well....Roseville Pottery.
