Lighter-than-expected sentences handed down Tuesday for three men convicted of trying to bomb an Ohio bridge has a fourth defendant rethinking his plea deal with the government.

If you live in Ohio, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are giving you a lot of love. But if you reside in California or Alabama, you may feel neglected and ignored by the candidates for president. Like parents in a big, noisy family, all their attention goes to the troublesome kids, not the compliant, quiet ones.

So it went all over Ohio on Tuesday as voters turned out in force to play their outsized role in electing the president. “It's something people around here take some pride in - that we have maybe a disproportionate amount of control in the outcome,” said Doug Metz, a retired Worthington lawyer who showed up at the church a few hours later to cast his ballot for Mitt Romney.

We're going to review our regulations as they relate to coal to make sure that burning coal is done in a clean way, but we're not going to kill the industry like you see the EPA doing under this administration,” Romney told more than 2,000 supporters at a mining equipment factory.
