A "divider" like GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will have a hard time winning Ohio, an important battleground that could help decide the election in November, said Buckeye State Gov. John Kasich, a former Republican presidential candidate. "Ohio's a snapshot of the country. People in Ohio want to see a positive agenda, a positive way to move forward," Kasich said Friday in an interview at the Union League of Philadelphia. He attended a fund-raiser for Brian Fitzpatrick, a Bucks County Republican running for an open congressional seat.

CINCINNATI - A shadow of a different kind is hanging over Punxsutawney Phil. Authorities in still-frigid Ohio have issued an "indictment" against the famed groundhog, who predicted an early spring when he didn't see his shadow after emerging from his lair in Western Pennsylvania on Feb. 2. Spring arrived Wednesday, and temperatures are still hovering in the 30s in the Buckeye state and much of the Northeast. While it's not the coldest spring on record, it's a good 5 degrees below normal, said Don Hughes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio.

MANSFIELD, Ohio - It's all about Ohio - again. The economy has improved here, and so has President Obama's standing, putting pressure on Republican Mitt Romney in a state critical to his presidential hopes. No Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio, and Romney hopes to catch Obama here by slashing at his jobs record in working-class regions. "America doesn't have to have the long face it has had under this president," the Republican shouted Monday to a cheering audience in hardscrabble Mansfield, just weeks after Obama visited.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Walter Offutt and Ohio are moving on in the NCAA Tournament. Step aside, VCU. Enjoy your memories, Butler. The Bobcats are well on their way to becoming the mid-major darlings of this March Madness. Offutt scored 21 points, D.J. Cooper had 19 and No. 13 seed Ohio beat South Florida last night, 62-56, to advance to the Midwest Regional Round of 16. The Bobcats (29-7), who opened the tournament with an upset against fourth-seeded Michigan, will play No. 1 seed North Carolina in St. Louis on Friday in their first trip to the Round of 16 since they lost to the Wolverines in the regional finals in 1964.

WARREN, OHIO - Investigators on Monday tried to piece together what eight teenagers crammed into a stolen SUV were up to before the vehicle flipped over into a pond, killing six of them. Authorities gave few details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday, speeding down a two-lane road. On Monday, the SUV's owner met with police and filed a stolen-car report. Although the father of one of the dead said the teenagers were coming home from a sleepover, the mother of another boy killed said that her son and his best friend had lied about staying over at each other's homes.

ST. LOUIS - Awful all night, Harrison Barnes came through when North Carolina needed him most. Barnes scored five of his 12 points in overtime as the top-seeded Tar Heels escaped a huge upset with a 73-65 victory over 13th-seeded Ohio on Friday night in their Midwest Regional semifinal. Ohio, trying to become the first team seeded 13th or worse to make the regional finals since the tournament expanded in 1985, had a chance to convert a three-point play that would have given the Bobcats the lead with 25 seconds left in regulation.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - As a young state senator 30 years ago, Paul Pfeifer helped write Ohio's death-penalty law. Today, as the senior member of the state Supreme Court, he's trying to eliminate it. It's not uncommon for sitting judges to change their minds about the death penalty - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun famously said in 1994 he would no longer "tinker with the machinery of death" - but Pfeifer may be the only one to argue so ardently against...

IT'S THIS BASIC: If Temple (5-3, 3-2) wins its final three MAC games it will win the league's East title for the first time. If the Owls don't, well, who knows? But at the very least they'd need help, maybe a lot. They've been here before. In 2009 they took a nine-game winning streak into the regular-season finale at Ohio. Playing without running back Bernard Pierce and his injured shoulder they lost, 35-17, even though fellow-freshman Matt Brown rushed for 172 yards.

It's no secret that Punxsutawney Phil is a shadowy underworld figure. And yet it now looks like the dirty rat-cousin could burrow his way out of a possible death sentence in Ohio. A supposed higher-up in the Gobbler's Knob mob has stepped forward to be the fall (or winter and still-not-spring) guy. Police in Maryland, however, have yet to withdraw their "Suspect Wanted for Fraud" proclamation. Being a famous groundhog in Pennsylvania isn't such a warm and fuzzy deal anymore.

CHICAGO - Ohio State lost 12 players to the NFL draft after last season, and its senior class finished a four-year career with a 50-4 record, tying for the most wins over that span by an FBS school in NCAA history. However, when coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that, "44 of our players, which is over half of our scholarships, are kids that never played in a game," it was less of a lament, and more of a hopeful sign of what's to come for the Buckeyes this season. "The issue would be if it was a non-talented young team," Meyer said.

CLEVELAND - Ohio Gov. John Kasich is all over town this week, except inside the Republican convention hall downtown. Kasich, a Republican, has taken the rare and impolitic step of boycotting his party's convention in his home state, drawing scorn from party nominee (and former primary rival) Donald Trump's campaign. Suffice it to say he's not on the "Trump Train. " Instead, Kasich is pursuing a schedule that looks an awful lot like a road map for somebody planning to run for president again in 2020.

Back in the 1860s, before there was a Sun Oil Co. , Philadelphia was home to a disruptive, fast-growing petroleum sector, including the industrial-lubricants firm now known as Houghton International Inc. Houghton is still here, along with publicly traded rival Quaker Chemical Co. of Conshohocken. Houghton boss Michael Shannon says they're "like Villanova and St. Joe's," friendly neighborhood rivals. But the business - and its owners - have left petroleum behind and gone profoundly international.

It's just one poll, and there are six months until the general election, but Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are essentially tied in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday. With voters split along gender, race and age, and both candidates burdened by negative public perceptions, the presumptive Republican nominee and likely Democratic nominee appear set up for tight battles in the three swing states. Since 1960, no presidential candidate has won without carrying at least two of the three.

The camp is for players entering ninth through 12th grades this fall.

During 20 years in Congress (1977-97), Bob Walker represented Lancaster and Lebanon Counties in central Pennsylvania as one of the most conservative members of the House, aligned with the likes of Newt Gingrich and Trent Lott. These days, Walker's walking with John Kasich as the Ohio governor vies for Pennsylvania's attention ahead of Tuesday's GOP primary. This strikes me a bit odd. So I chat with Walker during his and Kasich's visit to Inquirer/Daily News editorial boards last week.

After receiving a positive evaluation from an NFL advisory committee, Ohio State cornerback and former Eastern High School star Eli Apple announced Monday on Twitter that he would give up his final two years of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. Apple, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt sophomore, started 14 games as a freshman on Ohio State's 2014 national championship team. He had 13 starts this season, when he was second on the Buckeyes with eight passes broken up while posting 33 tackles.

Mike Oxley, 71, a former U.S. representative who helped write landmark antifraud legislation following a wave of corporate scandals that brought down Enron Corp. and WorldCom Inc., died Friday in his sleep in McLean, Va., after suffering from non-small-cell lung cancer, a type of lung cancer seen in nonsmokers, said his wife, Patricia Oxley. Mr. Oxley was chairman of the Lung Cancer Alliance board of directors. Though his cancer was a shock to the nonsmoker, he took the diagnosis in stride, said Laurie Fenton Ambrose, the alliance's president and CEO. Mr. Oxley "never lost his irreverent sense of humor and his distinctive laugh that could be heard throughout the office whenever he came by for a visit," Ambrose said.
