From a candidate for state auditor to some great Ohioans, here's a look at some of the stories we're following today:

Seth Morgan announces bid for State Auditor Brown is a Republican from Huber Heights (near Dayton) who is touting his experience as a CPA, saying that he wants to continue the work started by current auditor Mary Taylor, also a CPA, who is running for Lieutenant Governor. Democrats are saying that Morgan will maintain partisanship in the Auditor's office.

Ohio Congressional Delegation meets with NASA chief The topic on their minds as they meet with Charles Bolden iis jobs at Glenn Research Center. They want to preserve jobs there by making sure that Glenn will continue to have a role in the moon program, which President Obama is considering cutting. 

Lots of late fees Ohio has issued 329,000 late fees to people who didn't renew their drivers licenses on time. The new fee, enacted in October is 20 dollars. Make sure you have your license renewed, because you could not only get a late fee, you could get busted for driving on an expired license.

Great Ohioans 4 new names were added to the list of Great Ohioans. They include former Indians pitcher Bob Feller, former Ohio Governor James Cox, Former Cleveland Browns and Ohio State guard Bill Willis, and Florence Ellinwood Allen, the first woman elected to the Ohio Supreme Court.

Wednesday's Word
Wednesday, 20 January 2010 10:35

From an upset in Massachusetts to the President's visit to Elyria, here's a look at the stories we're following today:

Brown Wins in Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown came from being a 20-point underdog in the polls with a month left in the campaign to take the Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy. This shakes up the march toward health care reform, as it eliminates the filibuster-proof majority that the Democrats have had for the last year. I have a feeling that the only person who got less sleep than the Morning Buzz crew last night was Harry Reid, who now has to either get a Republican to vote yes on health care or use tactics such as reconciliation (commonly referred to as the nuclear option), which are considered by many to be unsavory.

State of the Union Scheduled The White House has announced that the State of the Union address will be next Wednesday (1/27) at 9 PM.

Obama in Elyria Tickets for President Obama's town hall meeting on Friday sold out almost as soon as they were made available yesterday. In response, LCCC will be rebroadcasting the event at several locations and on their cable channel. Click here for more info. WBWC News will also have full coverage on Friday starting on The Morning Buzz.

Demjanjuk Trial The trial of John Demjanjuk continues in Munich. Yesterday, a survivor of the Sobibor death camp testified that the Germans were in charge of the camp even though the camp was in the Ukraine. 82 year old Thomas Blatt said that he doesn't remember Demjanjuk, but was only testifying to give the court a general impression of Sobibor.

From the Orchestra strike to the Massachusetts election, here's a look at the stories we're following today:

Strickland to announce his running mate: Governor Strickland is expected to announce Yvette McGee Brown as his running mate in the November election. Brown is a former juvenile judge and now works for a nonprofit child and family advocacy group, so this choice would seem to make sense seeing as how much of Strickland's time and energy has been spent on education policy.

Orchestra strike over? Fox 8 is reporting that a tentative agreement has been struck that will end the Cleveland Orchestra's strike. Definitely good news there as the Orchestra is a big asset to Cleveland.

Plane Crash Kills 4 in Elyria: A plane carrying four people crashed on approach to Lorain County Regional Airport, killing everyone aboard. Among those killed was Donald Brown, the inventor of drop ceilings.

Election Day in Massachusetts: Voters head to the polls in the Bay State to elect a new senator to replace the late Ted Kennedy. Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Martha Coakley are in a statistical dead heat in the polls, and the race has received national attention. It's a critical Senate seat for both sides because if Brown wins, the Democrats lose their filibuster-proof majority. That could derail the health care package that will be heading back to both the House and Senate for final approval. It should be interesting to see the returns as they come in later tonight.
