“There was a 1977 OhioSupreme Court case titled‘Williams v. Brown,’ wherea citizen sued the secretaryof state requesting a mea-sure be taken off the ballotbecause the citizen believedit was unconstitutional. Thecourt determined that becauseit was in the process of leg-islative power being used bythe citizens, there could beno intervention until the lawwas enacted or about to beenforced. The case limited theattorney general’s review to bewhether the summery is ‘trueand faithful’ and our power islimited by that and two subse-quent cases,” he concluded.

Harding-type blow to bringme to my knees.”Batchelder saidRepublicans have triedrepeatedly to pass an accept-able map but Democratswon’t tell his party what theywant. Though both partieswere given equal sums topay for redistricting analy-sis, Democrats never made aproposal for the GOP to workfrom, he said.Under no statistical sce-nario is Ohio a 50/50 statepolitically, he said.Budish said the partydecided early it would bebetter to work behind thescenes than to risk alienatingRepublicans with a publicmap.Batchelder attached themap unveiled Thursday tolanguage reinstating a sin-gle 2012 primary in thestate. Lawmakers last monthsplit the primary, keepinglocal primaries in Marchand moving presidentialand U.S. House races toJune to allow more time towork out a compromise withDemocrats.Ohio Senate PresidentTom Niehaus said senatorswere getting negative reac-tion in their districts overthe two separate primaries.He had scheduled a tentativefloor session in his chamberfor Friday, to take up therevised map if it passed.State Rep. CarltonWeddington, a ColumbusDemocrat who was part of talks over the district bound-aries, said he was open toreaching an agreement on themaps, but in the end, “therewas nothing for us to be infavor of.”“They (Republicans)stopped negotiating with-out any further notice,” saidWeddington.“We had made a lot of ground and felt like if theyhad agreed to the minor, min-ute changes, we would havehad not only seven votes tosuspend the rules but severalDemocratic caucus votes inthe upwards of 20-plus mem-bers.”He said the votes wouldhave come not only from theblack caucus, but also fromother Democrats.“If they want to be seri-ous about having a bipartisanvote and support for congres-sional maps, they’ll comeback to the table and recon-sider suggestions we made,”Weddington said.
HONOLULU (AP) — Ithappens daily in supermarketand convenience stores nation-wide — digging into a bag of chips while waiting in line,sampling a couple of grapes inthe produce section, openinga bottle of milk to appease acrying child.The highly-publicized storyof a pregnant Honolulu momwho was arrested last weekwith her husband after she atea sandwich in a Safeway storeand forgot to pay, leading tothe couple’s 2-year-old daugh-ter being taken away by ChildWelfare Services, has sparkeda national debate on the issue.It also raised the question:Is it OK to consume food andbeverages in the store beforepaying?The woman in Hawaii whoate the sandwich has no prob-lem with it.“I didn’t know it was sucha taboo thing,” said NicoleLeszczynski who was chargedwith fourth-degree theft, a pettymisdemeanor, along with herhusband, Marcin. The chargeshave since been dropped bySafeway. “Where I grew up ina small town it’s not seen asstealing for sure.”Others are not so sure.The story generated arobust debate on Facebookand Yahoo in comments fol-lowing stories on the theft.Some argued that it’s wrong toeat what you haven’t paid for,and that police did the properthing in arresting them. Otherssaid eating while shopping hasbecome a perfectly acceptablepractice. Many denouncedthe arrest as a heavy-handedresponse.At the Safeway where theLeszczynskis were arrested,Linda Mercado and her friendChristine Lutley didn’t get toofar from the exit Wednesdaybefore they began digging intotheir food purchases. Mercadopolished off a package of sushias she discussed her views onthe issue.“Pay before you eat,” the66-year-old Mercado said.“It’s bad manners.”However, Mercadoacknowledged drinking bever-ages in the past while waitingin line.“I don’t walk aroundthe store drinking it,” sheexplained. “By the time I’mdone shopping I’m thirsty.”
