A growing number of Ohio educators are legally carrying guns in classrooms across the state. And in most cases parents and students will never know. I just filed a report on this new trend on +WLWT  in #Cincinnati.

If you're a parent with a teenage athlete I hope you'll take some time to think about issues surrounding heart health. I've learned a lot about the issue of late. I tried to channel that knowledge into the story linked below. +WLWT +WLWT News +Cameron's Cause +simonsfund #GivingHeartsAHand

If you're a parent with a teenage athlete I hope you'll be able to check out a story I've done about sudden cardiac arrest events. It's about to air on WLWT News 5 at 6 (on this Monday). I'll plan on posting a link with video, etc., after the story airs. +WLWT 

I'm back on the marijuana beat now that I'm back in Cincinnati (talk about a long flight home from Denver..) Find out what one ResponsibleOhio investor says about the possibility of another pro-pot ballot measure in the Buckeye State. My report is coming up on +WLWT News 5 at 5pm.

Ohio voters - Unsure what to make of Issues 2 and 3? You only have hours left to make up your mind before the polls open on Election Day. Are you pro-marijuana? Do you think legalization is a bad idea? Are you for or against limiting marijuana grow sites statewide? These are some of the key issues to consider. I've spent days in Colorado examining that state's legal marijuana marketplace to give Ohioans a glimpse of what the future might look like if voters give the green light to Issue 3. Before you decide which way to vote check out the stories I've put together with WLWT Chief Photographer Ron Schmidt during our time out West. Visit WLWT's Live Wire (linked below) for more. +WLWT +WLWT News  #marijuana   #ElectionDay

Ohio voters who are a) pro-marijuana and b) opposed to Issue 3 may support Issue 2 on election day (November 3). Issue 2 is a ballot measure crafted by state lawmakers. On Thursday I talked to a legal scholar who's not a fan of either one of the proposed constitutional amendments. But while attorney Christopher Finney is displeased with Issue 3, he thinks Issue 2 might be worse.

Tonight, find out what supporters and opponents say are the pros and cons of Issue 3, the marijuana legalization initiative Ohio voters will decide on November 3. I've put together several stories for a special on the subject airing tonight (10/20/15) at 7 on +WLWT.

This is a good Monday, right?!! The Bengals are 5-0. The weather's nice (for at least one more afternoon). And I had a chance to cover a pretty cool story last week - the now famous #LeBronSelfie! If you have a couple minutes check it out.. I hope it makes you smile. +WLWT +LeBron James +NBA +Cleveland Cavaliers
