Two men are dead following a Thanksgiving Day shooting at a home in Heath.  Authorities were called to the home on the 100 block of Rosemary Lane around 4:00 p.m. Thursday.  According to witnesses there was an argument between the two men and shots were fired resulting in their deaths.  The men’s names and ages have not been released and the incident remains under investigation.

The tradition of Ohio State students jumping into Mirror Lake in the days leading up to the Michigan game is probably coming to an end.  Austin Singletary, 22, died of a broken neck after jumping into the lake early Wednesday morning.  OSU officials said that while jumping into Mirror Lake is a student-led tradition that has been passed down through the years, they cannot risk another tragedy and university leadership strongly agrees that they will work with the campus community to end this annual event.

A number of Ohio health advocacy groups are supporting House Bill 221 which if enacted would make all K-12 school campuses smoke free.
