No more water fountains at the Q You'll have to stand in line if you want free water at Quicken Loans Arena from now on. Administrators at the Q say they took the fountains out at the request of the NBA, but the NBA denies this. Free cups of water are still available at concession stands, but many fans say the move was motivated by greed.

Ohio could set lethal injection record There are already nine executions set for this year, including that of Mark Brown yesterday, and prosecutors are asking the Ohio Supreme Court to set dates for five more inmates.

Here's a look at the stories we're following today:

Two Up, Two Down That's the way the results of yesterday's special elections fell. The fourth time was the charm for the Olmsted Falls school district, as their levy passed by a 55-45 margin. It was a split decision in Columbia Station, as their renewal levy passed 62%-37%, but the bond levy to add on to the middle school and build a new elementary school failed 52%-48%. In Amherst, the library levy failed 54%-36%

West 83rd Blast Intentional Fire investigators have determined that the explosion in a house on West 83rd Street in Cleveland was no accident. Although they have stopped short of blaming arson, they have ruled out all intentional causes.

Toyota Recall Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told Toyota owners to stop driving their cars and get them fixed. He said in a press conference today that drivers should take their cars to the dealership because they believe they have a fix for the accelerator, which is prone to becoming hung.

Human Services Tax on the May Ballot The Cuyahoga County Commissioners voted today to place a human services tax on the May ballot. These levies usually don't fail (the only time a human services levy has gone down was in 1976), it could be more difficult this year given the corruption scandal.
