Bexley council member accused of unprofessional conduct will not be removed from seat

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 18:59

BEXLEY -Bexley City Council met in executive session behind closed doors on Tuesday to discuss how to deal with fellow council member Tim Madison.

Madison is accused of bullying, intimidating and using aggressive behavior.

Members of the city council and the public said Madison has a pattern of abusive behavior, including physically accosting a citizen who criticized him after a council meeting in November.

After a lengthy deliberation, council emerged to state it cannot remove Madison under the Bexley Charter.

The city attorney said his actions were not illegal.

Nate Caplin asked the council to remove Madison immediately and told council it was he who was confronted by Madison after the meeting on November 13.

He said Madison followed him into the parking lot and according to Caplin got "chest to chest with him and about six inches from his face."

Caplin said Madison repeatedly "called him a gutless troll."

Council voted to officially reprimand Madison, calling his conduct "unacceptable."

Madison must now enter counseling, which will be paid for by the city.

He was a;sp removed from his chairmanships until further notice of his successful completion of counseling.

Council did add that Madison has made positive contributions to the city and the hope is he can continue to make a positive impact on the city.

After the vote, Madison addressed council saying, " I did not do anything illegal as the city attorney has said and I have should have addressed this in a different manner and in the future I will definitely do so,"

Columbus teacher accused of breaking student's hand

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 18:37

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Columbus teacher is facing a felony charge of endangering children after being accused of breaking a child’s hand.

David Ring, a teacher at Imagine Columbus Primary Academy, was arraigned in Franklin County Municipal Court on Tuesday in connection to an incident that happened on October 24.

Ring told the students in his classroom to put their heads down and one student did not do as asked, according to court documents.

Court documents allege he then took the student out into the hallway and tried to sit him down in a chair but the student refused.

Ring is accused of then forcefully slamming a child “into a chair while the child’s hand was underneath him” which caused the child to fracture his hand, according to court records.

Ring posted bond on Tuesday and his next scheduled court appearance is later this month.

10TV reached out to Imagine Columbus Primary Academy but the school declined to comment on the case.

Trump threatens shutdown in wild encounter with Democrats

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 17:47

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a wild Oval Office confrontation, President Donald Trump heatedly threatened to shut down the U.S. government Tuesday as he and Democratic leaders bickered over funding for his promised border wall and offered a grim preview of life in Washington the next two years under divided government.

Trump and House and Senate Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer squabbled for more than 15 minutes in the stunning, televised encounter. Each of them, especially Trump, interrupted the others to question facts, quibble over election results and lob insults.

Trump questioned Pelosi's ability to count votes in her own House. She questioned his manhood — after she left the building.

The public clash marked Trump's first meeting with the newly empowered Democrats since their midterm victories that put them in control of the House, laying bare the tensions on both sides and suggesting how divided government might work — or not — as the 2020 presidential election nears.

Neither the public nor the private face-to-face portion of the meeting appeared to resolve the wall-funding dispute with a partial shutdown looming on Dec. 21. However, Pelosi said Trump called her later in the afternoon and told her the White House was looking at options she and Schumer had laid out.

In the public debate, Trump sounded more determined than ever to allow a partial government shutdown unless he gets the billions he wants for his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

"I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down," he declared.

Pelosi later crowed that she and Schumer had goaded the president to "fully own that the shutdown was his." She told Democratic lawmakers back at the Capitol, according to an aide who was in the room, that the wall was "like a manhood thing for him ... as if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing."

The aide was not authorized to speak publicly and commented only on condition of anonymity.

While Trump has suggested he may be willing to trade with Democrats and has publicly praised Pelosi, he was focused Tuesday on reinforcing his hardline immigration promises, repeatedly stressing border security and the wall as a critical part. Democrats were in no mood to sympathize, emphasizing their newfound political strength.

"Elections have consequences, Mr. President," said Schumer.

Trump later called it a "friendly meeting," saying "I've actually liked them for a long period of time and I respect them both. And we made a lot of progress." The Democrats said they had given Trump two options to keep government open and the responsibility lay with him and Republicans who control Congress.

The wall remains the main sticking point in talks. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan acknowledged Tuesday that the GOP-led House has yet to pass legislation that includes the $5 billion in border wall funds that Trump has been requesting. Ryan likely lacks sufficient votes from Republicans who will lose their majority at the end of the month.

Trump is seeking far more for his long-stalled border wall than the $1.6 billion the Senate has agreed to for border security, including physical barriers and technology along the U.S. southern border.

Should the two sides not make a deal by Dec. 21, about three-quarters of the government would continue to have enough money to operate. But departments affected absent a deal include Homeland Security, Transportation, Agriculture, State and Justice, as well as national parks.

Both sides came into the negotiating session primed for battle. After a few niceties, Trump dug into Democrats on the border wall, prompting a stern rebuke from Schumer that the issue at hand was "called funding the government." Trump soon started scrapping with Pelosi, when she said there should not be a "Trump shutdown."

"Did you say Trump?" the president said, as the two argued over whether Trump had enough Republican votes in the House to support his border wall plan.

"The fact is that you do not have the votes in the House," Pelosi declared.

Trump shot back, "Nancy, I do."

Also in a fighting mood, Schumer accused Trump of threatening a shutdown "because you can't get your way."

Trump heckled Schumer over a previous shutdown, saying "the last time you shut it down you got killed" politically.

Pelosi and Schumer both repeatedly asked to make the conversation private, without success, as Trump argued that the public meeting was a good thing: "It's called transparency."

Trump repeatedly returned to his argument that the border wall is needed for security reasons. He also argued that "tremendous" portions of the wall have already been built. In fact, some barrier renovation has happened, but little wall construction has been completed under Trump.

If Democrats refuse to support the wall, the military will build the remaining sections, Trump said. "The wall will get built," he insisted.

Hours after the meeting ended, a Pentagon spokesman said in a statement that "there is no plan" for the military to build sections of a border wall. But Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis added that the military may have the power to fund "barrier projects" in national emergencies or to counter the drug trade.

Pence, a former House member, sat silently as Trump and the two Democrats bickered. He later called the meeting a "good discussion." Asked to describe the atmosphere in the private meeting that followed the public quarrel, Pence said, "candid."

Pelosi and Schumer have urged Trump to support a measure that includes a half-dozen government funding bills largely agreed upon by lawmakers, along with a separate measure that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year. The homeland bill includes about $1.3 billion for fencing and other security measures at the border.

If Trump rejects that, Democrats are urging a continuing resolution that would fund all the remaining appropriations bills at current levels through Sept. 30.

"We gave the president two options that would keep the government open," Pelosi and Schumer said in a statement after the meeting. "It's his choice to accept one of those options or shut the government down."

Pelosi, who is seeking to become House speaker when the new Congress convenes in January, said she and many other Democrats consider the wall "immoral, ineffective and expensive." She noted that Trump promised during the 2016 campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall, an idea Mexico has repeatedly rejected.

In fact, Trump declared during the presidential campaign two years ago, "That wall will go up so fast your head will spin."

Pelosi's willingness to stand up to Trump won praise from Democrats. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California told CNN that she "may have sealed her speakership by going toe-to-toe with the president."

Despite the rancor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he hadn't given up hope that a shutdown can be averted. The Kentucky Republican said "magic" sometimes happens in Congress ahead of Christmas, when lawmakers are eager to leave Washington.

"I'd like to see a smooth ending here," McConnell said at the Capitol.

Chris Bradley remembered as loving father, husband, friend, and pillar of the community

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 17:32

COLUMBUS, Ohio - There were final goodbyes Tuesday night for Chris Bradley, who was remembered at a beautiful service celebrating his life at King Avenue United Methodist Church.

Lofty hymns were sung by a comforting choir and words of tribute were read by people who loved him.

"We all have stories of how we have been blessed by Chris' joy and by his delight, by his humility and accessibility, and his openness," said Rev. John Keeny.

"Whose path you cross is a lottery too and I have to say I won the Mega Millions when my path crossed Chris Bradley's," said former 10TV anchor Kristyn Hartman.

During the service, several colleagues and friends offered one word that described Chris.

Words such as trust, inspiring, and proud. These words were on plaques given to Chris' children, Spencer and Maria.

"When I think of your dad I think of sunshine. First and foremost he was the weatherman and we liked it when he said sunshine," said 10TV sports anchor Dom Tiberi as those in attendance smiled.

"On behalf of my brother Jason, Spencer and Maria, and our entire family we would just like to extend our sincerest appreciation for the outpouring of love and support and kindness," said Chris' sister-in-law Tiffany Krauss.

Tuesday's service brought joy and gratitude for knowing Chris Bradley.

Feds: Toledo plot suspect praised Dylann Roof, Columbine killers

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 14:53

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Federal investigators say an Ohio woman charged with buying bomb-making supplies for a domestic terror attack that was never carried out had a fascination with mass murderers.

Authorities in court documents say the Toledo woman traded letters with South Carolina church shooter Dylann Roof and sent him a book about Nazis.

The investigators also say that she traveled to Colorado this year to see the site of the Columbine High School massacre.

The FBI and Department of Justice on Monday announced the arrest of 23-year-old Elizabeth Lecron.

She appeared in federal court and waived a preliminary hearing. A message seeking comment was left with the federal public defender's office.

Authorities say Lecron had talked about carrying out several different types of attacks, including a mass killing at a Toledo bar.

Patch Tuesday, December 2018 Edition

Krebs on Security - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 14:05

Adobe and Microsoft each released updates today to tackle critical security weaknesses in their software. Microsoft’s December patch batch is relatively light, addressing more than three dozen vulnerabilities in Windows and related applications. Adobe has issued security fixes for its Acrobat and PDF Reader products, and has a patch for yet another zero-day flaw in Flash Player that is already being exploited in the wild.

At least nine of the bugs in the Microsoft patches address flaws the company deems “critical,” meaning they can be exploited by malware or ne’er-do-wells to install malicious software with little or no help from users, save for perhaps browsing to a hacked or booby-trapped site.

Microsoft patched a zero-day flaw that is already being exploited (CVE-2018-8611) and allows an attacker to elevate their privileges on a host system. The weakness, which is present on all support versions of Windows, is tagged tagged with the less severe “important” rating by Microsoft mainly because it requires an attacker to be logged on to the system first.

According to security firm Rapid7, other notable vulnerabilities this month are in Internet Explorer (CVE-2018-8631) and Edge (CVE-2018-8624), both of which Microsoft considers most likely to be exploited. Similarly, CVE-2018-8628 is flaw in all supported versions of PowerPoint which is also likely to be used by attackers.

It generally can’t hurt for Windows users to wait a day or two after Microsoft releases monthly security updates before installing the fixes; occasionally buggy patches can cause serious headaches for users who install them before all the kinks are worked out. Also, it’s a good idea to get in the habit of backing up your data before installing Windows updates.

Windows 10 likes to install patches all in one go and reboot your computer on its own schedule. Microsoft doesn’t make it easy for Windows 10 users to change this setting, but it is possible. For all other Windows OS users, if you’d rather be alerted to new updates when they’re available so you can choose when to install them, there’s a setting for that in Windows Update.

For its part, Adobe’s got new versions of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat that plug dozens of security holes in the programs. Also, last week Adobe issued an emergency patch to fix a zero-day flaw in Flash Player that bad guys are now using in active attacks.

Fortunately, the most popular Web browser by a long shot — Google Chrome — auto-updates Flash but also is now making users explicitly enable Flash every time they want to use it (Microsoft also bundles Flash with IE/Edge and updates it whenever Windows systems install monthly updates). By the summer of 2019 Google will make Chrome users go into their settings to enable it every time they want to run it.

Firefox also forces users with the Flash add-on installed to click in order to play Flash content; instructions for disabling or removing Flash from Firefox are here. Adobe will stop supporting Flash at the end of 2020.

As always, if you experience any problems installing any of these patches this month, please feel free to leave a comment about it below; there’s a good chance other readers have experienced the same and may even chime in here with some helpful tips.

Columbus woman facing deadly drunk driving charges eludes federal authorities

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 14:00

Authorities are still on the search for a Columbus woman who was driving under the influence, which led to a fatal accident in July.

According to investigators, 47-year old Heather Tapia's blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit when she turned in front of oncoming traffic at the intersection of Morse Road and Cleveland Avenue in northeast Columbus July 14.

The resulting crash killed Audrey Gartin, the passenger in the vehicle driven by Tapia.

"Audrey was a sweet little soul," said Gartin's aunt, Roselee Anzalone. "She was just precious to us."

The grieving family recently gathered in a park in Scottsdale, Arizona to plant a tree in her memory and sprinkle her ashes on the ground.

Gartin was born and raised in Arizona, but after her mother died last year, her family said the grieving daughter needed to get away. She moved to Columbus.

"She was 39, and it was tragic for her family. It's hard to talk about," Anzalone said.

Gartin's family said Tapia has been convicted eight times of driving under the influence. Nearly six months after the deadly crash, she is eluding federal authorities.

10TV has learned authorities believe Tapia has fled Ohio and may be hiding out in Florida.

"Heather Tapia needs to fess up about what happened and stop running," said Anzalone. "Let this family have some peace about what happened to Audrey because she didn't deserve this at all."

Anyone with information about Tapia's whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals central Ohio field office at (614) 469-5540. All tips are anonymous and rewards may be available for information leading to an arrest.

Board recommends Franklin County judge be suspended indefinitely

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 13:37

The Board of Professional Conduct has found a Franklin County Appeals Court judge guilty of misconduct, including sexual harassment and abuse of power.

The recommendation from the board for Judge Timothy Horton is to be suspended indefinitely from practicing law, following days of sexually graphic, emotional testimony against Horton this summer.

"I was getting up to go to the bathroom, Judge Horton looked at me and said, 'Walk away slowly,'" said a former intern. "And so I went to the restroom, and when I came back, that's when Judge Horton looked at me, and he said, 'I want to (expletive) you in the (expletive)."

Horton admitted to a sexual relationship with a former intern after she left his office. A former secretary who later served as a bailiff in his court also gave testimony.

"He started pulling at my waist and my hip," the former secretary said. "He kept saying over and over, 'I want to (expletive) you, I want to (expletive) you.' And he was being so loud. I kept saying, 'Stop, stop.'"

Horton denied sexually harassing both women, saying all sexual acts and conversations were consensual. He blamed his poor judgment on alcoholism for which he has since sought treatment.

"I've made a lot of mistakes. I'm not asking you -- I want you to know that I recognize that," Horton said.

In a strongly-worded ruling, the Board of Professional Conduct finds Horton repeatedly violated the Codes of Professional and Judicial Conduct, including violating campaign finance laws and misusing county employees to work on his campaign. The board also found he "abused his position of authority" and "engaged in sexual harassment."

"His conduct was predatory when he engaged in inappropriate sexual discussions with his employees and former employees of the court," the panel wrote. "The crucial factor was the control and power that (he) possessed over his employees, whether or not he was in the workplace."

The Ohio Supreme Court will have the final word on the case some time next year.

France shooting: 2 dead, several wounded in Strasbourg

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 13:34

PARIS (AP) — A shooting in the French city of Strasbourg killed two people and wounded up to eight others, officials said, sparking a major security operation around a world-famous Christmas market on Tuesday. Authorities said the shooter remains at large.

The motive for the shooting is unclear. It wasn't immediately clear if the market was the target of the attack or if there was any link to terrorism.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told reporters that the gunman has been identified, and had a police record for common crimes. He several of the wounded were in critical condition and that he was heading to Strasbourg.

The French Interior Ministry called on the public to remain indoors.

"Our security and rescue services are mobilized," Castaner said.

Local authorities tweeted for the public to "avoid the area of the police station," which is close to the city's Christmas market. Strasbourg's well-known market is set up around the city's cathedral during the Christmas period and becomes a major gathering place.

Images from the scene show police officers, police vehicles and barricades surrounding the sparkling lights of the market.

The European Parliament, which is based in Strasbourg, was on lockdown. Spokesman Jaume Duch said that "the European Parliament has been closed and no one can leave until further notice." It wasn't immediately clear how many people were inside.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that "my thoughts are with the victims of the shooting .... Strasbourg is like no other a city which is a symbol of peace and European democracy."

France has been hit by several extremist attacks, including the 2015 Paris shootings, which killed 130 people and wounded hundreds, and a truck attack in Nice that killed dozens in 2016.

Some Strasbourg residents have reported on social media that they heard gunfire in some parts of the city center.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe tweeted that "the situation is still underway, priority is given to security forces and rescuers."

President Emmanuel Macron has adjourned a meeting at the presidential palace on Tuesday night to be able to monitor the events, his office said.

Strasbourg, about 500 kilometers (310 miles) east of Paris, is on the border with Germany.

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 12:16

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — American goalkeeper Zack Steffen will transfer to Manchester City from the Columbus Crew in July.

The Crew said Tuesday that Steffen will join City when the summer transfer window opens July 9.

The 23-year-old played two seasons at the University of Maryland and joined Germany's Freiburg in December 2014. He never got into a first-team match, signed with the Crew in July 2016 and was on loan to third-tier Pittsburgh for the rest of the season. He made his Crew debut in 2017 and was voted Major League Soccer's top goalkeeper this season.

Steffen made his U.S. national team debut in January and had six appearances this year.

Radio station returns "Baby, It's Cold Outside" to playlist after "overwhelming" poll results

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 12:00

SAN FRANCISCO — After polling thousands of Bay Area radio listeners, San Francisco's KOIT radio station announced it was returning the controversial "Baby It's Cold Outside" holiday song to its daily playlist. CBS San Francisco reports that following a national outcry against the song, KOIT Program Director Brian Figula opted last week to place the song on hold while seeking further listener feedback.

"After hearing from thousands of Bay Area listeners via polling, phone calls, emails and social media, KOIT has concluded that the vast majority consider the song to be a valuable part of their holiday tradition, and they still want to hear it on the radio," Figula said in a statement on Monday.

Figula said when it came to the vote, it wasn't even close with 77 percent of listeners opposed to banning the song.

"KOIT's listeners have spoken, and the overwhelming message is they do want to hear 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' on our station, as they have throughout the years," he said. "More than seven out of every ten listeners who responded said although some lyrics of the song may reflect a different era and a different sensibility than today, still they love the tradition and history of the song, and want to hear it as part of their holiday season."

Penned by "Guys and Dolls" writer Frank Loesser in 1944, the Christmas song has been perceived by some as unworthy for the most wonderful time of the year — particularly in the age of #MeToo.

The song's lyrics describe a woman trying extricate herself from a date and saying "no, no, no," while a man insists that she stays as he moves in closer, pours her more alcohol, and warns about he weather outside. Critics of the song say the lyrics promote date rape.

When Figula announced his original decision last week, the station received many angry emails and social media posts from people upset with the decision, accusing the station of political correctness.

An informal poll on CBS New York shows a majority of people think the song should not be banned from the airwaves.

Meanwhile, radio stations in Cleveland and Denver have banned the song for the holiday season.

In Canada, CBC Radio announced last week it would join at least two other broadcasters in the country — Rogers Media and Bell Media — in keeping the song off their holiday playlists.

CBC spokeswoman Nicola Makoway said the broadcaster planned to remove the song at midnight on Tuesday with "no plans to play it going forward."

4 journalists and a newspaper are Time's Person of the Year

Channel 10 news - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 06:48

NEW YORK (AP) — Time magazine named four journalists and a newspaper on Tuesday as its 2018 Person of the Year for standing up for the truth in the face of persecution and violence.

The group, which Time calls the "guardians," includes slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were shot and killed at the newspaper's offices in June; Philippine journalist Maria Ressa, who has been arrested; and Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who have been detained in Myanmar for nearly a year.

"They are representative of a broader fight by countless others around the world — as of Dec. 10, at least 52 journalists have been murdered in 2018 — who risk all to tell the story of our time," editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal wrote in an essay.

Time selected them "for taking great risks in pursuit of greater truths, for the imperfect but essential quest for facts that are central to civil discourse, for speaking up and speaking out."

Khashoggi was killed two months ago when the Washington Post columnist, who had lived in the U.S., visited Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey for paperwork so he could get married. He had been critical of the Saudi regime.

Reesa is an award-winning Philippine journalist who, along with the online news service she heads, has been sued for tax evasion. Her website has been critical of the government of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, and she claims the charges are politically motivated.

Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have been imprisoned for nearly a year in Myanmar after investigating a massacre of Rohingya Muslims.

Four journalists and a sales assistant were killed by a gunman at the Capital Gazette newspaper in June.

Since 1927, Time has selected individuals or groups to appear on its covers for the end-of-the-year feature. This was the first time someone named was no longer alive. Those chosen this year will appear in four different cover photos.

President Donald Trump, who was chosen Person of the Year in 2016, was second runner-up.

"His ultimate impact may be determined as much by the resistance he engenders as by the goals he pursues," the magazine said.

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller was third runner-up.
