Photo Leads Local Schools to Issue Lockdown
Photos lead to a lockdown within a local school district. Stark County Sheriff's Deputies say it all happened Friday afternoon at Marlington High School and Middle School. Apparently a student sent something to another student that was taken years ago off school grounds and the student was holding a gun in the picture. Officials issued a precautionary lockdown for roughly 45 minutes to an hour, but say no one was ever in any danger. Deputies say there was no gun found at the school. School administrators say the student will however be disciplined through the school, but no word on if any criminal charges will follow.
If you are a T-Mobile customer you could be receiving money from a recent settlement. Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine announced Friday that Ohio has joined the other 49 states, the District of Columbia, the Federal Trade Commission and the FCC in a settlement with the mobile phone service provider. The settlement, that includes at least $90 million in payments is to resolve allegations that the company added unauthorized third-party charges on cell phone bills. The charges would typically be about $9.99 a month for "premium text message subscriptions services," such as horoscopes trivia etc. Dewine says many consumers wouldn't even realize they had they had the extra charges. Nearly 200,000 Ohioans may be affected by the settlement. AT&T announced a similar settlement this year and Verizon and Sprint have ceased billing for the PSMS charges.
