Federal judge orders gorilla's return to Cincinnati Zoo

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 18:34

CINCINNATI (AP) — A federal judge has again ordered a California group to return a male silverback gorilla to the Ohio zoo where he was born.

U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg ruled Friday in San Francisco that northern California's Gorilla Foundation must transfer 37-year-old Ndume to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden on Thursday.

Zoo officials sought to bring Ndume home after Koko, the gorilla famed for learning sign language, died last June and left Ndume by himself. He was loaned to the foundation in 1991 to be Koko's companion with the proviso he'd return to Cincinnati after her death.

The foundation argued as late as this week the transfer would harm Ndume. Zoo officials, animal rights groups and, most importantly, Seeborg disagreed.

Messages seeking comment with the foundation were left Saturday.

Another Triple Crown surprise: Sir Winston takes Belmont

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 17:38

NEW YORK (AP) — Sir Winston gave the Triple Crown another unexpected turn, rallying to capture the Belmont Stakes on Saturday in a 10-1 upset.

The win gave trainer Mark Casse the final two jewels in the showcase for 3-year-old thoroughbreds. He won the Preakness with War of Will, who was expected to battle favored Tacitus in the 1 1/2 mile Belmont.

Instead, Casse's other's colt took the lead after a ground-saving ride by Joel Rosario and held off Tacitus by a length. Long shot Joevia finished third and Tax was fourth.

The Triple Crown grind caught up to War of Will, who ran in all three races. He finished ninth in the 10-horse field.

The Belmont capped an entertaining Triple Crown highlighted by a disqualification in the Kentucky Derby and a horse without a rider in the Preakness. It sparked interest in thoroughbred racing despite no possibility of having the third Triple Crown winner in five years, coming on the heels of Justify last year and American Pharoah in 2015.

Former Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer to open restaurant in Dublin

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 10:32

DUBLIN, OHIO - Urban Meyer is set to open a restaurant called "Urban Meyer's Pint House" at Bridge Park in Dublin this fall.

The restaurant will be located on the corner of Bridge Park Avenue and Longshore Street.

The establishment will be partnered with area restaurant owner Chris Corso of Corso Ventures who was also responsible for opening several other restaurants in Columbus including Forno Kitchen & Bar, Standard Hall, Goody Boy Diner and Short North Pint House.

“When Corso Ventures approached me with this unique opportunity to partner with their elite restaurant and hospitality team on a Pint House in Bridge Park, it was a no brainer,” Meyer said. “Not only does Urban Meyer’s Pint House allow me to stay attached to the central Ohio community, but it will also make the perfect space to host events supporting our foundation.”

The restaurant will be built off of the Short North Pint House concept and is expected to be double the size of the Short North location. It will feature a seating area inside as well as an indoor/outdoor patio bar that overlooks Bridge Park Avenue. The restaurant will be located at the former location of RAM Restaurant & Brewery.

(WBNS)

Urban's 7-0 room will be a private area in the restaurant and will commemorate Meyer's record against the University of Michigan as well as feature memorabilia from his time coaching.

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 09:56

PERRY COUNTY, Ohio — The Lancaster Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash involving three pedestrians.

It happened just after 7 a.m. Friday on County Road 30 in Perry County.

The driver of the Silverado was taken by Thorn Township Fire Department to Genesis Hospital in Somerset with non-life-threatening injuries.

Barber was flown by Air Evacuation to Grant Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Ohio makes grants available for diesel engine replacements

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 08:19

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The state is taking applications in some Ohio counties for $15 million in grants to upgrade aging vehicles and other equipment that run on diesel.

Those eligible to apply include public and private fleet owners of school and transit buses, medium and heavy-duty trucks, switcher locomotives, tugboats, ferries, and cargo handling equipment in airports and ports.

Options include replacing vehicles and swapping out diesel engines for cleaner burning engines. The grants cover 26 counties in northern and northeastern Ohio, central Ohio and southwestern Ohio.

The money comes from dollars Ohio received as part of a national settlement with Volkswagen over allegations the company installed devices on certain vehicles to defeat emissions standards testing.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency application process runs through Aug. 2.

Dog Walkers Weekly "Furr-cast" | June 8, 2019

Channel 10 news - Sat, 06/08/2019 - 05:34

Welcome back, everyone! For you first-time readers, happy to have you here!

This blog is dedicated to those dog lovers across central Ohio. Unless you have a large backyard, many of you probably walk your dog, or dogs, on a daily basis, and maybe even multiple times a day.

The purpose and goal of this blog is to help those dog walkers and their furry friends make the most out of their walks outside while being safe at the same time.

So, let's start things off with a look at what I call the "Comfort Scale."

You will notice on the images below there are certain colors that go with each time period/day of the week for the "Furr-cast." I developed this scale on my own, using several meteorological variables and some pet-friendly considerations.

You will see that the color "green" on the image above suggests that conditions are ideal for walking your pet and that there are no risks to either you or your pet, so walk all you want!

This brings me to the next level on the scale, which is a yellowish-orange color. This shows conditions are fair outside but you should still keep an eye on your pet. This is where the breed of your pet also comes into play. I'm not an expert on dogs but I know a Siberian Husky can withstand colder temperatures than a Chihuahua.

This is up to the owner to decide if the conditions are fair enough that they could take more casual, longer walks outside.

Lastly, we have the last ranking on the scale, which shows outside conditions are poor and pet owners should keep their walks short. Dangerous weather is developing or already present and pet owners should take action to make sure that their pets are properly taken care of. This shouldn't be used to decide whether or not you should go outside; but more so an indicator that you should take shorter, more frequent walks.

Now that we have a look at the method behind the comfort scale, let's take a look at this weekends "Furr-cast."

Partly to mostly cloudy skies today with highs around 80. Winds will stay on the breezy side, so it'll help to make your walking conditions more enjoyable today. There is a spotty shower chance today, with scattered showers along and north of I-70. Get outside and enjoy the outdoors!

A similar start to the day on Sunday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will also be back around 80 degrees, with a chance for showers and storms late Sunday afternoon and evening.

If you're spending plenty of time outside this weekend, make sure you keep your pets cool and hydrated. Showers and storms will be likely on Monday, so avoid your long walks for the day. Much cooler and drier conditions move in on Tuesday and Wednesday, so those are your ideal "walks of the week". A few chances for rain return later on in the week but overall, temperatures will stay slightly below average with highs in the 70's. Temperatures in the morning hours next week will be in the 50's, so you'll want to get out and take advantage of those ideal conditions, too.

While it's common sense to not leave your pets or children unattended in vehicles, one may be surprised by how fast things can "heat up" inside a car even with the windows cracked. It's extremely important for your pet's health that you avoid leaving them in the car. In as soon as 10 minutes, a car can heat up by nearly 20 degrees. In cases such as this and how temperatures will pan out next week, it's best to leave the pets at home rather than putting their health at risk.

Another pet safety tip is to avoid paved or concrete roads or sidewalks when temperatures are warming up, especially later in the day when the sun has already been up for several hours under mostly sunny skies. These types of surfaces can heat up extremely fast and while the air temperature isn't too hot, the grounds can be much, much warmer. In cases such as this, it's important to keep their paws on grassy, cooler surfaces. An easy test to tell if the grounds are too hot for your pets is to simply place the back of your hand on the ground for seven seconds. If it is too hot for you, then it's likely it will be too hot for your pet's paws and that it could easily damage their skin.

The "Barking Message" for next week:
  • Alittle toasty in the afternoon hours this weekend. Keep your pets' cool & hydrated,
  • Avoid walking on hot surfaces. The grass is your friend!
  • Very pleasant walking conditions on Tuesday & Wednesday

Each Friday, I will be posting a new "Furr-cast" for the weekend and week ahead and I would like to feature some of your pets on my blog. Also, if you have any suggestions or comments on my blog, I'd love to hear input. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter and Facebook at Ross10TV. Enjoy the weekend and week ahead, furr-parents.

Trump suspends proposed tariffs on Mexico, cites agreement

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/07/2019 - 18:48

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he has suspended plans to impose tariffs on Mexico, tweeting that the country "has agreed to take strong measures" to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the United States.

"I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico," Trump tweeted Friday night, saying the "Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended."

I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended. Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to....

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 8, 2019

He said Mexico has agreed to work to "stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border" and said those steps would "greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States."

He said details would be released soon by the State Department.

The tweet marked a change in tone from earlier Friday, when his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters in Ireland before Trump took off: "Our position has not changed. The tariffs are going forward as of Monday." Trump has often said unpredictability helps him negotiate.

A tax on all Mexican goods , which would increase every month up to 25% under Trump's plan, would have had enormous economic implications for both countries. Americans bought $378 billion worth of Mexican imports last year, led by cars and auto parts. Many members of Trump's Republican Party and business allies have urged him to reconsider — or at least postpone actually implementing the tariffs as talks continue — citing the potential harm to American consumers and manufactures.

U.S. and Mexican officials held a third day of talks at the U.S. State Department trying to hash out a deal that would satisfy Trump's demand that Mexico dramatically increase its efforts to crack down on migrants.

The talks were said to be focused, in part, on attempting to reach a compromise on changes that would make it harder for migrants who pass through Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S., those monitoring the situation said. Mexico has opposed such a change but appeared open to considering a potential compromise that could include exceptions or waivers for different types of cases.

Trump has nonetheless embraced tariffs as a political tool he can use to force countries to comply with his demands — in this case on his signature issue of immigration. And he appeared poised earlier Friday to invoke an emergency declaration that would allow him to put the tariffs into effect if that is his final decision, according to people monitoring the talks.

"If negotiations continue to go well," Trump "can turn that off at some point over the weekend," Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, told reporters.

Talks had gotten off to a shaky start Wednesday, as the U.S. once again pressed Mexico to step up enforcement on its southern border with Guatemala and to enter into a "safe third country agreement" overhauling its asylum system. But as talks progressed Thursday, U.S. officials began to grow more optimistic, with Short reporting Mexican "receptivity" to potential asylum changes.

Still, he said there was "a long way to go in that particular piece."

In Mexico, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador would not say whether he would accept his country agreeing to be a "safe third country."

"That is being looked at," he said Friday morning during his daily news conference, where he held out hope a deal could be reached before Monday's deadline.

In addition, Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said Thursday his country had agreed to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to its border with Guatemala to help control the flow of migrants as part of its concessions.

He tweeted late Friday that there would be no "tariff application on Monday."

"Thanks to all the people who have supported us by realizing the greatness of Mexico," he wrote.

Beyond Trump and several White House advisers, few in his administration believe the tariffs are a good idea, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations. Those people worry about the negative economic consequences for Americans and believe the tariffs — which would likely spark retaliatory taxes on U.S. exports — would also hurt the administration politically.

Republicans in Congress have warned the White House that they are ready to stand up to the president to try to block his tariffs, which they worry would spike costs to U.S. consumers, harm the economy and imperil a major pending U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.

FDA finds asbestos in more cosmetics from Claire's

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/07/2019 - 15:54

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found asbestos in more cosmetics sold by Claire's Stores and Beauty Plus Global, with the agency warning consumers to steer clear of the products.

Both companies last week voluntarily recalled products that tested positive for the known carcinogen during the agency's ongoing testing of cosmetics for asbestos, the FDA stated in its alert. The recalled products include:

  • Beauty Plus Global Contour Effects Palette 2, Batch No. S1603002/PD-C1179
  • Claire's JoJo Siwa Makeup Set, SKU #888711136337, Batch/Lot No. S180109


The alert issued by the FDA late Thursday comes three months after the agency urged the public to toss out three makeup products sold by Claire's that tested positive for asbestos. Claire's, a retailer that markets cosmetics and accessories to adolescent girls, initially disputed the FDA's findings, but then agreed to pull the products out of stores.

Claire's products have been under scrutiny since 2017, and U.S. Public Interest Research Group, a non-profit, also found "high levels of asbestos" in three of the company's products, it said late last year.

In an emailed statement, Claire's on Friday said it recalled the JoJo Cosmetic Kit after FDA tests "indicated the possible presence of trace amounts of asbestos fibers in the powder eyeshadow element of the kit."

But the company also said it "stands behind the safety of this item and all other Claire's cosmetic items, as such small trace amounts are considered acceptable under European and Canadian cosmetic safety regulations."

In addition, last year Claire's moved to talc-free cosmetic manufacturing to prevent any further concerns about talc contamination, said the company, which added it would provide refunds to anyone who purchased the recalled products.

Shanghai-based Beauty Plus' U.S. subsidiary did not immediately return a request for comment.

Not banned in U.S.

There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos, according to the World Health Organization. Inhaling or consuming asbestos can lead to serious respiratory diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma. Banned in the European Union, Canada and the U.K., efforts to prohibit asbestos in the U.S. have been blocked amid lobbying by asbestos suppliers.

A mineral fiber at one time commonly found in construction materials, asbestos can occur naturally in talc, a mineral also used in powder-based products such as cosmetics and baby powder. Consumer products company Johnson & Johnson faces legal claims that its baby powder and a defunct shower product caused ovarian cancer and another cancer linked to asbestos. J&J denies its products ever contained the carcinogen.

Claire's, an Illinois-based chain owned by Ascena Retail Group, emerged from bankruptcy in October after unloading about $1.9 billion in debt.

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/07/2019 - 13:27

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Production crews have been setting up for the Buckeye Country Superfest in the Ohio Stadium since last Wednesday while organizers put plans in place for safety.

Assistant Vice President for Business Advancement Mike Gatto said safety is their number one priority.

Organizers are expecting around 50,000 people to be in the stadium on Saturday for the concert. Several artists will be performing, such as George Strait and Blake Shelton.

Production crews have been working to transform the football field to a concert venue since last Wednesday. The director of production says different vendors from all over the country come together to make this happen.

As for the safety aspect of the event, Gatto said this is the first time they will have walk-through metal detectors. He said to ensure people coming that safety measures are being taken, security officials will be scattered all over and belongings will be checked before walking in.

Bags and purses are not allowed in the stadium, but a small wristlet can be brought in.

A water bottle with the lid off can be brought in and filled at their refill station. However, drinks will need to be bought at the stadium.

Gatto says when it comes to drinks, he is confident in their public safety team to make sure those who are drinking alcohol are under control.

"We have a tremendous staff, tremendous team of public safety officials along with our event staff and security team," Gatto said.

The gates open at 1:00 p.m. Saturday.
