    Flash Briefing SATURDAY

    September 23rd, 2017 at 01:00 AM

    A Philadelphia woman says her husband has been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement since July 19 at Northeast Ohio Correctional Center, the privately run prison on Youngstown Hubbard Road. Although they talk on the phone daily, she didn't hear from him for days until Sept. 15, when he told her there had been a hunger strike to protest conditions at the prison. He was not on the hunger strike, but was still under lockdown 23 hours a day from Thursday through Sunday, she said. He told her guards put notes on cell windows reading, “Enjoy your one hour today to shower, eat and call your family,” and for 27 hours beginning Thursday, detainees were not provided with food or drink. The fate of a contested medical marijuana ordinance in Girard may be determined Monday. City council is expected to vote on whether to override Mayor James Melfi's veto of the measure. Council unanimously passed an ordinance July 11 establishing a licensing system for medical marijuana cultivators and dispensaries, but Melfi contends it may send the wrong message. Council President Reynold Paolone, though, says Melfi is wrong. “I truly do not understand why he vetoed the ordinance. We’re allowing medicinal marijuana, not recreational. These aren’t smokeables. They’re pills for cancer patients and veterans. I have no idea why he’d be against this.” Slightly more than 80 percent of Youngstown School District students receive health care through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program – the highest percentage in Ohio. Two other Mahoning Valley schools round out the top 11, Warren, with 71.9 percent of students and Campbell, with 69.8 percent, according to Georgetown University Health Policy Institute’s Center for Children and Families. Center Director Elisabeth Wright Burak said recent studies have shown Medicaid is correlated with better educational outcomes and graduation rates and higher lifetime earnings. children with insurance are less likely to miss school because of illnesses, she added.Krish Youngstown schools CEO Krish Mohip said he placed a social worker in every school building, in part, to connect parents and families with services such as Medicaid and CHIP. Leaders of the local United Auto Workers unions are hopeful a move to combine two unions will benefit the future of General Motors Lordstown. Workers at the complex where the Chevrolet Cruze is produced were informed Friday that UAW Local 1714, the fabrication plant union, would merge with UAW 1112, the assembly plant union. Local 1112 President Glenn Johnson said it was a very difficult decision made by the leadership of both locals because it will be a large cost savings for GM.The Lordstown facility is the only GM plant with two unions representing workers. Local 1112 has been in existence for 51 years and Local 1714 for 47 years. Officials at Youngstown State University refused to provide many details Friday about a man who died at Stambaugh Stadium. A late afternoon statement from the university said the person who died was not a student or YSU employee. An ambulance was called to the university just after noon for a report that someone fell from the Fifth Avenue stadium. By early afternoon, YSU spokesman Ron Cole said only that someone had died, but he refused to confirm reports that the person had jumped from the stadium. At the stadium's Gate D area,an ambulance was seen leaving and a white sheet was on the ground and YSU workers were seen hosing down the areag.
