    1. (F) It is an affirmative defense to a charge under division (B) of this section that the impersonation of the peace officer, private police officer, or investigator of the bureau of criminal identification and investigation was for a lawful purpose.

      It would seem that this applies to anyone since it is an affirmative defense to "no person" in section (B).

      So, as long as one was impersonating a police officer "for a lawful purpose" (note, not any specific lawful purpose, or even one that has been declared in advance) it seems that anyone may impersonate a peace officers, private police, or even federal law enforcement.

      You'll have to explain it away in court after the fact if charged though.

    1. DeWine said he has talked directly with the director and several members of the six-member Ohio Casino Control Commission, to which the legislature gave the job of regulating the fledgling industry.

      Since neither you nor I nor anyone else may dictate whether or not people bet on sports in Ohio, we couldn't have justly granted that authority to the legislature to hand off to the made-up "Ohio Casino Control Commission". We also couldn't have justly granted any authority to "Governor" Mike DeWine.

      This is simply corrupt racketeering by the most powerful gang in the state, and their "legions of enforcer" mercenaries to claim a right to impose their opinions on Ohioans when no one else can.

      For those confused, it's right there in the Just Powers clause of The Declaration of Independence.

      All just Gov power must be granted to it by individuals. They can't just wish power for themselves out of thin air, no matter how many legislators or voters "vote" for the wish to come true.

    1. The report suggests nearly 42% of Delaware’s roads are in poor condition, a result of what it deemed as many as 20 years of deferred maintenance

      Without Government, who would neglect the roads?

    2. the report suggests an increase of the city’s current income tax rate of 1.85% to 2.25% would be the most productive way to address the narrowing excess of revenues over expenditures

      Always "extort more" from MORPC, never "Gov should operate within its budgets".

    1. This section does not apply to any political party or group which has had a place on the ballot in each national and gubernatorial election since the year 1900.

      You are only allowed to advocate overthrow of the Government in Ohio if you are a Republican or Democrat.

    1. The Delaware County Land Reutilization Corporation has been awarded nearly $500,000 in demolition grants from the Ohio Department of Development that will be used for various demolition projects around the county.

      They spent decades taxing this land, and now that it's abandoned, they have to go to the State for extorted money to pay to clear it out for more development.

      ...because private developers don't have enough money.

      If Delaware County isn't saving enough of its property tax extortion racket money, that is the Delaware County Commissioner's problem - or better yet, the landowners or future developers.

    1. Albert said with Ohio’s permitless carry law, people should now assume that someone could have a firearm in their vehicles.

      Ohioans could openly carry for years, and CCW has been the law of the land since 2003... but you should NOW assume they have a firearm. 🙄

    1. (B) Division (A) of this section does not apply to a physician who performs a medical procedure that, in the physician's reasonable medical judgment, is designed or intended to prevent the death of the pregnant woman or to prevent a serious risk of the substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman.

      This is the part of the law that gives doctors wide latitude to perform abortions out of medical necessary. They need only to believe that there is "risk" of "substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function".

      It also allows for the medical community to change what constitutes medical necessity as technology is improved.

      It leaves the decision to physicians, not legislators.

    1. Robert Fenton, Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Emeritus, pioneered the technology for the first wave of self-driving cars.

      I had Fenton for a class once and during a lecture he asked a question of the class. A student raised his hand and answered. Professor Fenton listened and asked the class "Does anyone else agree that his answer is correct?"

      About 85% of the students in the large lecture hall raised their hands.

      He paused, shook his head, and said "Well, then I'm afraid you're all going to fail." Then he turned around and went back to writing on the chalkboard.

      I think they meant 2021. 🤦‍♂️

      Maybe Glenn Battishill's editor has the day off?

    2. Troopers targeting distracted drivers

      Headline should read "Troopers report Distracted Driving down 54%"

      Or maybe "Troopers Collecting Needless Overtime".

      But the media must always mindlessly bleat the press releases they've been given by the mercenary enforcers, and only seek comment from their cheerleaders.

    3. Beginning April 7, if you text and drive, you will pay.

      Even though the data shows that people are driving more safely, Jackie Bain is still rooting for the mercenary enforcers to rob you by punishing you for good behavior.

      Seems sociopathic.

    4. nearly 96% of drivers believed it was very or extremely dangerous to read a text or email while driving, four out of 10 drivers admitted to doing so within the previous 30 days.

      Maybe they're aware of how dangerous it is, so now they're still doing it, but being more careful about it - resulting in the significant drop in incidents that OSP is reporting locally.

    5. Over the next month, Curry said troopers will be able to sign up to work federally funded overtime to specifically seek out and enforce distracted driving.

      This is what following the PR schedule - instead of actual data is really about. It lets them cozy up and fill their bellies with overtime from the public trough.

      American tax extortion victims should be demanding to know why Delaware County troopers are getting Federal overtime dollars to address a problem that is projected to be half as bad as last year.

    1. Others, including law enforcement groups, warn that the bill could make things more dangerous for Ohioans and first responders.

      It should be noted that these people have said the same time every time reform of firearms laws have been proposed.

      They have been tremendously wrong every single time.

      So why listen to others when they have only been wrong every time?

    1. It took more than 20 years and more money than originally proposed to complete the building.

      A testament to the State's heritage of incompetence.

    2. the statehouse was constructed using clay from the 40-foot Native American mound at Mound and High streets

      Wow... that seems kind of spiteful and intolerant.

    1. a new alliance

      I've lost track of the number of times Mayor Andrew Ginther has spun up "a new alliance" of "faith leaders, city leaders, and medica professionals" and called upon "everyone" to fight the crime problem he's done nothing to address - as did his predecessors.

    1. Comments are turned off.

      I'd like to ask everyone to watch this 19 second long "public meeting" with comments disabled so you can see what a joke Government is.

      If you agree, please re-share. If you disagree, please explain how you think this could possibly be legitimate in the comments.

    1. nontraditional students. The education department at OSU-M is housed within the School of Teaching and Learning and the Integrated Teaching and Learning (ITL) section. The Integrated Teaching and Learning section of the College of Education serves those preservice teachers who are studying to be teachers of children age 3 to Grade 8. The Ohio State University Master of Education degree, the degree that offers course requirements for licensure in elementary and middle childhood, is a five-quarter, graduate licensure program. Students enter the program with a B.A. in Elementary Education or a similar field. We license approximately 24 teachers per year. Class size ranges from 12 through 24 students. During the bachelor’s program, student studies are focused on theories of child development and learning, primary reading and language courses, general liberal arts courses, content courses, and two beginning field courses. At least one field placement during the undergraduate coursework takes place in an urban school. Following admission to the graduate program in education, students begin their coursework in general pedagogy and specific methods: social studies, mathematics, language arts, reading, and science. During this year and a half of studies, students are in the field each week for 4-10 hours and have a 12- to15-day period toward the end of the two methods block quarters when they create and implement lessons in their field classroom. All students complete two separate placements in teams of two. Field placements are primarily in suburban and rural schools. Following these field placements, students have one quarter of student teaching and one quarter for a master’s project, including a comprehensive portfolio and a research paper. Experiences With Technology During the undergraduate program students take one technology course. This course is intended to provide students with exposure to the basic knowledge of computer hardware and an introduction to traditional educational software. During this course, students are required to complete an “All About Me,” project (see Powerpoint 1) for which students familiarize themselves with tools such as the scanner, digital camera, clipart, and presentation software. Figure 1. The technology teaching lab After students are admitted to the master’s licensure program, they take one basic technology course that covers other technologies available to elementary education teachers (e.g., Ellison cutters, laminating machines, filmstrip projectors, video projectors, enlargers), and they continue their development of computer knowledge. The two courses, one in the undergraduate program and the other in the graduate program, are the only two stand-alone courses on technology. After students have completed the basic technology course in the graduate program, they begin their methods courses. Throughout the methods coursework, students are asked to use technology when appropriate to enhance their teaching. In addition to this expectation, instructors of the methods courses integrate technology into their teaching to serve as a model of ways in which technology can enhance learning in the particular subject areas. During the two methods course quarters, students attend a lab course entitled the Technology Teaching Lab (TTL). The goal for this course is to increase the use of technology in students’ lessons in ways that will enhance their teaching. The TTL is a series of 2-hour labs that runs concurrently with our methods blocks. The purpose of this lab is to provide the preservice teachers in our elementary education program opportunities to create, with assistance, technology-enhanced lessons for their field placements. The lab course provides the students with instruction, opportunities, and equipment to take their technology-enhanced lessons directly to the field.

      The Ohio State University is now integrating technology into their Education Master's program. Students are expected as undergraduates to take an introductory technology course. As part of the master's program, students are required to take another technology course. Students are also expected to integrate technology into their two methods courses. To help with this they have a "lab" (which is traditionally thought to parallel science courses) with technology instructors to help them with their methods courses.<br> Instructors are expected to model the technology integration and help students plan a curriculum that integrates technology to aid in the learning of most students.
