Tall ships re-enact Battle of Lake Erie
PUT-IN-BAY - Two hundred years later, Americans didn't give up the ships and again won on the waters of Lake Erie.
A fleet of tall ships on Monday re-enacted the Battle of Lake Erie, two centuries after the U.S.-British clash considered a turning point in the War of 1812.
Fifteen ships took part in the celebration of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's capture of a British fleet near Put-In-Bay.
Technology, however, changed things a little bit on Monday. The Port Clinton News-Herald reports Perry's re-enactor didn't switch ships using a longboat, he used a motorboat, while helicopters and airplanes circled overhead and law enforcement and U.S. Coast Guard vessels patrolled the waters.
This time around, people took pictures of the battle - many with cellphone cameras.
Police arrest suspect in triple stabbing
MAYFIELD HEIGHTS - Police say they have arrested a man who allegedly stabbed three people.
Mayfield Heights Police on Monday said one of the three victims of the overnight episode identified the suspect as her former boyfriend and gave officers his description.
Police in the suburb east of Cleveland say witnesses described a vehicle that was located hours later unoccupied. At about 7:40 a.m. Monday an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper observed an accident where the suspect was hit by a vehicle.
Police say the suspect was arrested and transported to an area hospital. Charges have not been filed against him.
Police say they responded to the scene after receiving a 911 call from a screaming person.
The victims were taken to a local hospital. Their identities haven't been released.
Labor secretary pays visit to Cincinnati
CINCINNATI - The secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor says he has a lot to learn from faithful union members.
Labor Secretary Thomas Perez on Monday spoke at the annual Labor Day picnic in Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Perez told the crowd that Ohio labor unions showed the nation how to unite against measures restricting public sector unions.
Perez was referring to the collective bargaining law known as Senate Bill 5 that Ohio voters overwhelmingly repealed last November.
Perez, whose remarks lasted about 10 minutes, also touched on President Barack Obama's push to boost the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour.
Perez took helm of the department a little more than a month ago. He has said his primary role will be as a workers advocate.
