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

State of the Union Address As expected, President Obama focused on jobs and the economy in his first State of the Union last night. He proposed a 3 year freeze on most government spending as well as a second stimulus bill. He also discussed higher education, proposing an increase in Pell Grants and a $10,000 higher education tax credit. 

High speed rail coming to Ohio Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told Governor Strickland that Ohio will receive 400 million dollars to build a high speed rail line connecting Ohio's largest cities. The new Amtrak line will connect Cleveland with Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati.

Sowell update A judge threw out accused Imperial Avenue killer Anthony Sowell's request for a change of venue for his trial as well as a motion to remove the death penalty as a possible sentence in the case. Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold said that if an impartial jury could be found in Oklahoma for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, one could be found in Cleveland for Sowell.

Toyota recall The automaker is recalling millions of cars after it was discovered that a faulty part in the gas pedal could cause it to hang, making it difficult if not impossible to stop the car. The recall includes the Camry, Corolla, Avalon, Matrix, Highlander, Rav4, Sequoia, and Tundra.

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

State of the State Address Governor Strickland will make his State of the State Address at noon today. He's expected to focus on jobs, but he may branch out and talk about a wide range of other issues, especially considering that polls show that he is trailing John Kasich in his bid for re-election. 

Turnpike removes bike toll The Ohio Turnpike Commission has reversed its decision to toll passenger cars with bicycles on their roofs. Such cars were usually put in a classification intended for trucks because of a laser scanning system that determined the height of the vehicle, but toll collectors will now adjust the tolls when cars exit the turnpike.

West Side Explosion Natural gas is the suspected cause of a house explosion on West 83rd Street near Madison yesterday. The blast happened just after 3 PM after a West 83rd resident called Dominion East Ohio Gas to report a potential gas leak. There are reports that the gas leak had been going on for almost a week before the explosion. No one was seriously injured.

NASA coin headed to the Hall of Fame The coin that will be used in the coin toss in Super Bowl XLIV will be donated by the crew of Space Shuttle Atlantis to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The coin was taken to the International Space Station in November along with several other pieces of football memorabilia.

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

Strickland trails Kasich The Ohio Newspaper Poll released yesterday shows that Republican John Kasich has a narrow lead over Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland in the race for Governor. 51 percent of those polled said that they would vote for Kasich if the election was today, compared to 45 percent who would vote for Strickland. This comes on the heels of a report from the AP that national data doesn't back Kasich's assertion that phasing out the Ohio income tax will return money to Ohioans' pockets.

3 boys drown on the Sandusky River The boys, ages 8, 9, and 10, fell into the river near Fremont while they were collecting dead fish with a friend. Condolences to the families as well as the young man who survived. You definitely have to feel for them.

Court Issues Cell Phone Ban Erie County Common Pleas Court has issued a ban on all cell phones, laptops, iPods, and smart phones, saying that Twitter-happy juries could trigger mistrials. I thought these things were already banned in courts, but I guess not.

Plane crashes into Mediterranean The Ethiopian Airlines plane carrying 90 people caught fire and crashed just after taking off from Beirut. As of now, terrorism is not being considered a cause of the crash.
