Ohio Inmate Claims He Is Too Big To Execute
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An inmate scheduled for execution in October says he’s so fat that Ohio executioners would have trouble finding his veins and he might not be properly anesthetized.
Lawyers for Richard Cooey argue in a federal lawsuit that Cooey had poor veins when he faced execution five years ago and that the problem has been worsened by weight gain.
New Ohio Lottery Game
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Bars, restaurants and liquor stores were scheduled on August 4th to start a statewide lottery game that officials hoped would offset projected budget deficits.
Ohio scheduled its Keno lottery game to start at 11:04 a.m. and planned it to repeat four minutes apart, 221 times a day, seven days a week. The state follows about a dozen other states with the bingo-like game, which, unlike many other lottery games, gives almost instant satisfaction – or disappointment.
Buckeyes Defeat Penn State But J.T. Barrett Hurt
12th-ranked Ohio State beat Penn State Saturday 31-24 in two overtimes. But they did get a little help from the officials. Technical difficulties in the replay booth and a blown call helped OSU to 10 points that they badly needed. Barrett also suffered a sprained MCL, although he should be able to play the next game.
Since Michigan State is the opponent in two weeks, it is possible Barrett will rest next week vs. Illinois, or attempt to keep his running and scrambling to a minimum.

Some Board members point out that flexibility is important since each school system may have completely different needs and budget issues that nay not allow the hiring they would like. Several Board members actually walked out of the meeting.
