WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 18:34

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Youngstown State named Jerrod Calhoun as its new coach following his successful run in Division II.

Calhoun took Fairmont State to the Division II title game this season. The Falcons lost to Northwest Missouri State 71-61 in the final.

He had a 124-38 record at the West Virginia school, which won at least 20 games in each of his five seasons. Calhoun has also worked on Bob Huggins’ staff at West Virginia.

Youngstown State athletic director Ron Strollo says Calhoun has a successful track record, experience with a major Division I program, regional recruiting ties and passion for the school.

The Mideast Conference coach of the year, Calhoun led Fairmont State to a 34-3 record and first conference championship in 21 years.

Calhoun spent four years as West Virginia’s director of basketball operations before working as an assistant for Huggins, who gave him his coaching start as a graduate assistant with Cincinnati in 2004.

Police raid home in drug investigation

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 18:28

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Only 2 NEWS was there when Dayton police served a drug search warrant at a home Monday afternoon.

The Drug Enforcement Unit investigated a home on Valencia Drive in Riverside.

They believe it’s connected to someone who deals heroin and fentanyl.

Sergeant John Sullivan of the Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit said, “We were expecting that children were going to be involved because my understanding is there was possibly two children at this residence. And there is always concern with this sort of business, drug dealing, that it is a violent trade, and having innocent young children in an environment like this is a danger that we’re concerned about.”

Police found drugs inside the home.

No one was arrested.

Fifth Third Field to host Futures Game this weekend

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 18:14

DAYTON, OH (WDTN) – The Cincinnati Reds will be in town on Saturday at Fifth Third Field for the Futures Game, and tickets are still available.

This is the second year Dayton is hosting the event which will see players from the Cincinnati Reds face off against players who might someday become a part of the Cincinnati Reds.

All of the seats are sold out, but there are still a limited number of standing room only tickets, available for purchase.

Dayton Dragons Executive Vice President Eric Deutsch dubbed the Future’s game an especially exciting way to kick off the baseball season and said preparations are underway to get everything ready for the big day.

“The big league clubs – you have to definitely plan a little bit differently in terms of arrival, and the clubhouse, and the locker room, and the catering and such,” Deutsch said.

“We’ll definitely treat them very well because we would love to have them come back.

“But it’s great that you can see them up close and personal – so close here and intimate at Fifth Third Field.”

Officials today were still getting things ready for what’s expected to be another sold-out crowd.

New features at the stadium include a brand new party deck called the Dragon’s Lair.

Officials have also installed a larger netting in front of all the seats, to keep fans a little safer, this season.

The game officially begins at 1:35 p.m., but gates will open at 11:30 a.m. to give fans a chance to watch batting practice.

Court filing: Convicted former Christie allies lied at trial

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 17:27

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say two convicted former allies of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lied during their corruption trial.

Prosecutors allege in Monday’s court filing Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni provided “flagrantly false testimony” during the George Washington Bridge lane-closing trial last fall.

Kelly and Baroni are to be sentenced Wednesday. Prosecutors’ filing asks the judge for sentences of roughly three to four years for them.

Kelly was Christie’s former deputy chief of staff. Baroni was a top appointee to the authority that runs the bridge. They were convicted of using their positions to cause traffic jams near the bridge in 2013 in a plot against a Democratic mayor who didn’t endorse Christie.

Christie wasn’t charged.

Baroni and Kelly testified they thought the lane realignment was part of a legitimate traffic study.

Cameo Nightclub to permanently close after mass shooting

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 17:17

CINCINNATI (AP) — The operator of a Cincinnati nightclub where one person was killed and 16 others were injured in a shooting says the venue will close its doors for good on Friday.

Cameo club operator Julian “Jay” Rodgers said in a statement late Monday that the club had received a notice earlier in the day from the landlord and owner of the property to vacate the premises.

Rodgers says he has notified the owner that although he had planned to move out in May due to the planned sale of the property, he will instead move out immediately.

The club voluntarily surrendered its liquor license Monday.

There will be a prayer vigil on Tuesday outside the club for the man fatally shot on Sunday morning. 27-year-old O’Bryan Spikes was killed in the shooting. The vigil will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police are still searching for suspects in the shooting. Authorities say multiple people opened fire in the club after an argument escalated.

The city police chief said Monday five people were still hospitalized, two in critical condition and three in serious condition.

Two of the people shot are from Trotwood. Lyrik Hardaway and Jarrod Givens are recovering, with Givens still in critical condition at a Cincinnati hospital.

Hardaway posted photos of injuries to his arm on Facebook, thanking God for protecting him in a social media post.

Ohio liquor agents who inspected the Cameo club after the Sunday shooting say they found marijuana in plain view along with partially smoked marijuana in an employee-only section.

As Cincinnati police delved further into their investigation of the shooting melee, city officials Monday urged more witnesses to come forward and offered reassurances amid questions about safety in public gathering spots.

Police Chief Eliot Isaac declined to say whether police have identified possible suspects in the Sunday gun violence inside the Cameo club, a popular hip-hop music spot near the Ohio river east of downtown Cincinnati. But Isaac said police weren’t actively looking for anyone as yet.

“We’re gathering information … we’re making some progress,” Isaac said after giving city council members an update on the investigation.

Police estimate more than 20 shots were fired, sending club patrons diving to the floor or scrambling away from a chaotic and terrifying scene.

The FBI and federal firearms agents are assisting Cincinnati police.

Isaac said a number of people have contacted police with information, including a person who came forward Sunday evening to report having been shot, raising the total number injured to 16 besides the 27-year-old man who was slain.

Police say no club security footage of the shooting has emerged.

Isaac said some of the wounded could be key witnesses, and city officials urged any reluctant potential witnesses to help, saying they would be protected. Crime witnesses afraid to testify for fear of retribution have been a problem in some past Cincinnati cases.

Isaac said the nightclub had metal detectors, or wands, but wasn’t required to by law. Four police officers were working off-duty security details in the club parking lot, but he emphasized the club provides its own security inside.

City officials say the Cameo club has been the scene of past violence, including a shooting inside the club on New Year’s Day in 2015 and one in the parking lot in September of that year.

Several city leaders pledged to find ways to prevent such violence, while acknowledging such outbreaks continue to occur in public venues across the country. Mayor John Cranley said the city has gotten outpouring of support from elected officials, including fellow mayors in other cities.

“I think they know that this could happen anywhere,” Cranley said.

Shootings at U.S. bars and nightclubs have rarely involved more than a handful people. But the Orlando, Florida, nightclub massacre last June that killed 49 people and injured 53 was the exception, making it the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

One teen died and eight others were injured in 2010 when gunfire broke out in the parking lot of a St. Louis club after a group was turned away from entering. Two teen girls died and seven other people were hurt in a 2009 shooting outside an underage nightclub in Portland, Oregon.

The suspect in the fatal crash stemming from a high-speed chase appeared in court on Tuesday morning.

Jordan Harville was arraigned on a felony theft charge for stealing a pickup truck. A judge set Harville’s bond at $75,000.00.

Harville is being held in the Miami County Jail. He’s due back in court on April 4th.

Harville could face additional charges related to a high-speed chase with authorities that ended in a fatal crash.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Monday one person was killed when their car was struck by a speeding pickup during a police chase.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 28-year-old Anthony Hufford of Englewood.

Police say the pickup was stolen from Miami County earlier Monday.

Troy Police and Miami County Deputies were chasing the truck when the crash happened. According to OSP, police did attempt to use stop sticks to end the chase sooner, but Troopers had no details on that.

Troopers say the truck was traveling on N. Dixie Drive at a “high rate of speed” when Hufford pulled out in front of the speeding truck in a white car. That’s when the truck hit Hufford’s car, killing Hufford.

Harville was taken into custody by Troy Police and taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with minor injuries.

The crash happened around 4:00 p.m. Monday in the 7000 block of North Dixie. Both the north and southbound lanes of N. Dixie Drive were closed during the investigation and clean-up of the crash.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene as well.

Witnesses at the scene told 2 NEWS they saw police chasing a pickup truck when the pickup struck another vehicle. Hufford’s car was seen in the middle of the road on the median with a sheet covering it up.

One man told 2 NEWS the truck was stolen from his father Monday in Miami County. He said his mother saw the truck being stolen and called him on the phone. He said he and his dad are upset that someone died.

In a written statement, Troy Police said Tuesday an administrative review of the pursuit will be completed once all the information from the agencies involved is available.

‘Fearless Girl’ statue opposite bull stays through February

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:38

NEW YORK (AP) — The globally popular statue of a young girl will keep staring down Wall Street’s famed “Charging Bull” through February 2018 instead of being removed this coming Sunday, the mayor said.

She’s “standing up to fear, standing up to power, being able to find in yourself the strength to do what’s right,” said Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, who appeared with the “Fearless Girl” statue Monday on the lower Manhattan traffic island where the two bronze figures face each other.

The mayor said the political turmoil surrounding Republican President Donald Trump makes the endearing child particularly relevant.

“She is inspiring everyone at a moment when we need inspiration,” he said.

The 4-foot-tall, 250-pound ponytailed girl in a windblown dress was installed this month to highlight the dearth of women on corporate boards as she stands strong against the 11-foot-tall, 7,100-pound bull. The girl became an instant tourist draw and internet sensation.

On Monday morning, Democratic U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, of New York, led a group of prominent women in front of City Hall to honor the artist, Kristen Visbal, and State Street Global Advisors, the asset management firm that commissioned the work and, with the McCann advertising firm, helped Visbal create her sculpture.

“She was created to bring attention to the courage and unrealized power of women in so many fields, and she has clearly struck a nerve,” said Maloney, who is pushing for the statue to become a permanent installation.

Visbal said the positive response to her artwork “renewed my faith in sculpture to make an impact on society, to create a debate the way a good piece of art should.”

She has received more than 1,000 emails from India, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and elsewhere, including one from a mother who wanted to wallpaper her daughter’s room with the girl’s image.

“I see men and women as the ying and yang of society,” Visbal said. “They bring different things to the table. They solve problems in a different way. But we need to work together.”

“Fearless Girl” will stay in place for another 11 months through an art program of the city’s Department of Transportation that manages lower Broadway near Wall Street.

Visbal said one of her models was a friend’s young daughter, whom she asked “to envision staring down a great big bull and, boy, she really had style.” The girl was white, and the creative team then incorporated another girl, a Latina, “to come up with a child that has universal appeal,” Visbal said.

The fictional figure is linked to a very real message: Women make up only about 16 percent of U.S. corporate boards, according to the ISS Analytics business research firm.

Artist Arturo Di Modica’s bull arrived after the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of Americans’ financial resilience and can-do spirit. He wants the girl gone, calling the statue an “advertising trick” fashioned by two corporate giants, while his sculpture is “art.”

Attorney General: Sanctuary cities are risking federal money

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:35

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday warned so-called sanctuary cities they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grant money that has already been awarded if they don’t comply.

Sessions said the Justice Department would require cities seeking some of $4.1 billion available in grant money to verify that they are in compliance with a section of federal law that allows information sharing with immigration officials.

His statements in the White House briefing room brought to mind tough talk from President Donald Trump’s campaign and came just three days after the administration’s crushing health care defeat. Sessions also acknowledged he was clarifying a similar policy adopted by the Obama administration last year.

“I urge the nation’s states and cities to carefully consider the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Sessions said.

Trump had said during the campaign that he would “defund” sanctuary cities by taking away their federal funding. But legal precedent suggests that would be difficult.

Sessions’ message came days after the administration released a report on local jails that listed more than 200 cases of immigrants released from custody before federal agents could intervene. That list was compiled following an executive order Trump signed in January that called on the government to document which local jurisdictions aren’t cooperating with federal efforts to find and deport immigrants in the country illegally.

Meanwhile, municipal leaders gathered in New York vowed to defy Trump’s crackdown as they gathered for a small conference that attracted officials from cities including San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York.

“We are going to become this administration’s worst nightmare,” said New York City council speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.

Mark-Viverito and others promised to block federal immigration agents from accessing certain private areas on city property, to restrict their access to schools and school records and to offer legal services to immigrants in the country illegally. City officials were also encouraged to embrace their rarely used oversight and subpoena powers to investigate federal immigration practices.

Rocks, Bible thrown through windows of mosque

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:09

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – A Colorado mosque was vandalized early Sunday when someone threw rocks and a Bible through the windows of the Islamic Center of Fort Collins.

Islamic Center president Tawfik Aboellail says video footage from a security camera showed a man in his late 20s or early 30s trying to break into the mosque at about 4 a.m. Sunday. He says the perpetrator did not get inside.

RELATED: Police, FBI investigate vandalism at Columbus mosque

The damage prompted the center to cancel religious classes for children and was condemned by local law enforcement and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis.

Fort Collins Police Chief John Hutton asked for anyone with information about the crime to step forward.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations called on authorities to investigate the vandalism as a possible hate crime.

Official: Expect Canada to legalize marijuana by July 2018

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:06

TORONTO (AP) – Canadians are expected to be able to smoke marijuana legally by July 1, 2018.

A senior government official says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will introduce legislation to legalize recreational marijuana the week of April 10th and officials expect it to be law by July next year. The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to lack of authorization to discuss the upcoming legislation.

Trudeau has long promised to legalize recreational pot use and sales. Canada would be the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition of recreational marijuana. In the U.S, voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted last year to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Uruguay in South America is the only nation to legalize recreational pot.

Hair-raising warning about buying bargain shampoos, conditioners

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:04

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) —  Like the products in your refrigerator, the ones in your shower have a shelf life. Wesley Chapel salon owner Johanna Amarante says products like shampoo and conditioner are considered expired after two years.

“Whatever ingredients that product has in it will no longer do the job like its supposed to,” Amarante says.

She says if you find a salon-quality product for sale at a discount retailer, it’s probably expired. She explains that buyers get a hold of outdated stock, sell to retailers, who add their own sticker with a bar code.

Another sign of an outdated product is the packaging. Manufacturers update packaging when they reformulate the line.

“Every time they transition to a new style – a different look – the ingredients have changed,” says Amarante.

More concerning to many people looking for a bargain, is that occasionally salon owners who go out of business sell their high-quality stock to a buyer, who will dilute it. The product may be diluted with alcohol, which can strip hair color and cause damage to the hair, or water, which can dilute the pure ingredients from the product, making it less effective.

When your color fades or your hair frays – it’s stylists’ reputations that have a bad hair day.

“Your doctor knows what’s wrong with you – they diagnose you, and give you a prescription. It works the same way in the beauty industry. We work with your hair. We know what to recommend for your hair,” says Amarante.

Some manufacturers have been fighting what’s known as the “gray market” – the reselling of outdated products, the dilution of products, or counterfeited products, for years. Redken and Pureology, for example, have processes for identifying products sold through unauthorized retailers.

Adele says she may never tour again

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:03

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) – Adele fans who didn’t catch her on her world tour that’s winding down may be out of luck in the future.

The New Zealand Herald reports Adele told the audience during Sunday night’s show in Auckland that “touring isn’t something I’m good at” and she doesn’t know if she “will ever tour again.” The concert was Adele’s last one before she formally finishes the tour in her hometown of London with four sold-out dates at Wembley Stadium this summer.

Adele sang through heavy rain at the outdoor show in Auckland on Sunday. Photos show her in a drenched dress for part of the concert and also donning a plastic poncho.

She joked that she “just spent two hours in hair and makeup for nothing.”

Deputies: Drunk Spring Hill, Florida man battered woman, killed her kitten

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 16:01

SPRING HILL, FL (WFLA) – A Florida man is facing charges, accused of battering a woman, smashing her cell phone and killing her kitten.

Deputies say 33-year-old Jacob Powell of Spring Hill started a verbal argument with the woman around 1 a.m. Sunday morning when he was drunk, then pushed her to the floor and hit her head against a wall. Powell is also accused of grabbing the woman by the wrists and ankles and scratching her.

During the incident, deputies say he killed the woman’s 9-week-old kitten.

When the woman tried calling 911, investigators say Powell took her cell phone, smashed it on the floor and threw it in the toilet.

Powell then left in a rental car, but was stopped by deputies when he drove past the home.

He has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty, domestic battery and witness tampering.

Former bouncer talks security following Cincinnati club shooting

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 15:56

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A former local bouncer believes security made a dire mistake following the mass shooting in Cincinnati over the weekend.

Darren Byrd spent several years as a bouncer in the Dayton area in the early 2000’s. He says times have changed and more people are quick to pull a trigger than before.

Byrd says somewhere security at the Cameo nightclub in Cincinnati dropped the ball, ultimately allowing the suspects inside with firearms.

“There was probably a breach of security somewhere. A back door being swung open, not guarded or a passive check at the door, not aggressive enough,” said Byrd, who now works in the community to reduce gun violence with the City of Dayton’s Human Relations Council.

The Cincinnati Police department is working to find the suspect or suspects in this case and figure out how weapons were able to get inside the club.

Omega Community Development Coordinator, Marlon Shackelford says the gun violence at the club is a part of a much larger issue.

“It’s scary that it’s close to Dayton, but one of the things I learned traveling nationally is that the problem is everywhere,” said Shackelford.

Two out of the 15 victims in the shooting are from Trotwood, making it extremely close to home.

2 NEWS reporter, Maytal Levi asked Shackelford, “On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest) where does Dayton rank in terms of security at night clubs?”.

He responded, “Mostly a 7. Yeah, it,s pretty good, but it’s just a 7. We need to be a 9.5.”

Both Byrd and Shackelford say there’s a lot of work to do and that’s why they go out to area clubs hoping to prevent gun violence.

“Stopping it before it starts. being active in everything you do. We have to train the bouncers, club owners we have to talk about creating a safety net.”

Shackelford says community leaders are talking to county and city leaders about ways to improve entertainment life in the Miami Valley. One idea is getting area club owners together once a month to brainstorm security ideas.

‘Fearless Girl’ statue opposite bull stays through February

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 15:47

NEW YORK (AP) — The globally popular statue of a young girl staring down Wall Street’s famed “Charging Bull” will remain in place through February 2018 instead of being removed this coming Sunday, the mayor said.

Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared with the “Fearless Girl” statue on Monday on the lower Manhattan traffic meridian where the two bronze figures face each other.

The 4-foot, 250-pound ponytailed girl in a windblown dress was installed this month to highlight the dearth of women on corporate boards as she stands strong against the 11-foot-tall, 7,100-pound bull. The girl became an instant tourist draw and internet sensation.

On Monday morning, Democratic U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, of New York, led a group of prominent women in front of City Hall to honor the artist, Kristen Visbal, and State Street Global Advisors, the asset management firm that commissioned the work.

“She was created to bring attention to the courage and unrealized power of women in so many fields, and she has clearly struck a nerve,” said Maloney, who is pushing for the statue to become a permanent installation.

Visbal said the positive response to her artwork “renewed my faith in sculpture to make an impact on society, to create a debate the way a good piece of art should.”

She said she’s received more than 1,000 emails from around the world, including from a mother who wanted to wallpaper her daughter’s room with the girl’s image.

“I see men and women as the ying and yang of society,” Visbal said. “They bring different things to the table. They solve problems in a different way. But we need to work together.”

“Fearless Girl” will be allowed to stay in place for another 11 months through an art program of the city’s Department of Transportation that manages lower Broadway near Wall Street.

The bull, created by Arturo Di Modica, arrived after the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of Americans’ financial resilience and can-do spirit. Di Modica wants the girl gone, saying the statue was an “advertising trick” fashioned by two corporate giants, including the McCann advertising firm, while his sculpture was “art.”

NFL owners approve Raiders’ move from Oakland to Las Vegas

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 15:40

PHOENIX (AP) — Invoking his father Al’s name, and copying what the Hall of Fame owner did with the Raiders, Mark Davis is moving the franchise out of Oakland.

NFL owners approved the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas 31-1 at the league meetings Monday. Miami was the lone dissenter.

“My father used to say the greatness of the Raiders is in the future,” Davis said. “This gives us the ability to achieve that.”

The vote was a foregone conclusion after the league and Raiders were not satisfied with Oakland’s proposals for a new stadium, and Las Vegas stepped up with $750 million in public money. Bank of America also is giving Davis a $650 million loan, further helping to persuade owners to allow the third team relocation in just over a year.

The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016, and in January the Chargers relocated from San Diego to LA.

“You know our goal is to have 32 stable franchises for each team and the league,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We work very hard and never want to see the relocation of a franchise. We worked tirelessly over the last nine months or so on a solution. We needed to provide certainties and stability for the Raiders and the league.”

The Raiders, whose relocation fee of approximately $350 million is less than the $650 million the Rams and Chargers paid, likely will play two or three more years in the Bay Area before their $1.7 billion stadium near the Las Vegas Strip is ready.

“I wouldn’t use the term lame duck,” Davis insisted. “We’re still the Raiders and we represent Raider Nation.

“There will be disappointed fans and it’s important for me to talk to them to explain why and how.”

Las Vegas, long taboo to the NFL because of its legalized gambling, also is getting an NHL team this fall, the Golden Knights.

“Today will forever change the landscape of Las Vegas and UNLV football,” said Steve Sisolak, chairman of the Clark County Commission and a former member of a panel appointed by Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval to study the stadium tax funding plan. “I couldn’t be more excited for the fans and residents of Clark County as we move forward with the Raiders and the Rebels.”

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and a group trying to keep the team in Oakland, made a last-ditch presentation to the NFL last week. But that letter was “filled with uncertainty,” according to Goodell.

Monday, she asked owners to delay the vote, wanting to give her city a chance to negotiate with a small group of owners to complete a stadium deal at the Coliseum site.

“Never that we know of has the NFL voted to displace a team from its established market when there is a fully financed option before them with all the issues addressed,” Schaaf said in a statement. “I’d be remiss if I didn’t do everything in my power to make the case for Oakland up until the very end.”

Schaaf said the city presented a $1.3 billion plan for a stadium that would be ready by 2021. She said the existing Coliseum would be demolished by 2024, with the Oakland Athletics baseball team either moving to a new stadium at the Coliseum site or somewhere else in the city.

But the presence of the A’s in that sports complex was particularly troubling to the NFL, Goodell said.

“We understand the Raiders’ need for a new stadium,” A’s President Dave Kaval said. “Oakland is an incredible sports town and we would be sorry to see them leave. We commend the city’s and county’s efforts to keep the Raiders in Oakland. The mayor and her team have worked incredibly hard to save the franchise.

“We are focused on, and excited about, our efforts to build a new ballpark in Oakland and look forward to announcing a location this year.”

The Raiders’ move became more certain this month when Bank of America offered the loan. That replaced the same amount the Raiders lost when the league balked at having casino owner Sheldon Adelson involved and he was dropped from the team’s plans.

Davis on Monday thanked Adelson for his “vision and leadership,” saying the entire deal might not have happened without him.

Leaving the Bay Area is not something new with the Raiders, who played in Los Angeles from 1982-94 before heading back to Oakland. Davis was passed over last year in an attempt to move to a stadium in the LA area that would have been jointly financed with the Chargers. Instead, the owners approved the Rams’ relocation and gave the Chargers an option to join them, which they exercised this winter.

Now, it’s off to the desert for the Raiders. Well, in a few years.

“The opportunity to build a world-class stadium in the entertainment capital of the world,” Davis said, “is a significant step toward achieving that greatness.”

Jury: Cleveland Indians not responsible for fan hurt by ball

WDTN News - Mon, 03/27/2017 - 15:14

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A jury says the Cleveland Indians aren’t responsible for injuries to a New York man hit by a foul ball and blinded in one eye at a baseball game in July 2012.

Cleveland.com reports the decision late last week in a Cleveland-area county court means Keith Rawlins, of Rochester, gets no money from his lawsuit against the team.

The attorney representing the Indians, Todd Hicks, says he’s pleased with the decision. The team had argued the case could have wide-ranging implications for ballparks and teams around the nation.

Cleveland.com says Rawlins’ lawyers couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

He claimed he turned away from the field because he was distracted by stadium personnel forcing him to relocate for a postgame fireworks show. The team has said Rawlins moved voluntarily.
