EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - JUNE 20, 2013
WOMAN HELD CAPTIVE
(AP) - One of four suspects in an Ohio forced-labor case has pleaded not guilty to charges alleging a woman was held captive with her child and was threatened and made to do housework. A judge in Cleveland released 21-year-old suspect Dezerah Silsby but ordered her to stay in contact with the probation office while awaiting trial.
INCOME TAX CUT
(AP) - Ohio Republican leaders have agreed to a larger statewide income tax cut as part of changes to the budget bill. The cut would be gradual, with an 8.5 percent cut the first year.
(AP) - Medicaid advocates are urging Ohio legislators to approve a measure to expand the state's Medicaid program. They warn the state cannot afford to lose $13 billion in federal money for the program.
WILLIAMS CONTACTS STEUBENVILLE VICTIM
(AP) - A lawyer for the girl in the Steubenville rape case says tennis pro Serena Williams has spoken to the family after saying publicly she made some "hurtful" comments. A magazine quoted Williams saying the girl "shouldn't have put herself in that position."
HOUSE REJECTS FARM BILL
(AP) - The opposition was bipartisan, so is the finger pointing following the defeat in the House of a five-year, half-trillion-dollar farm bill. Sixty-two Republicans joined all but 24 Democrats in voting against the measure. One feature that drew opposition was the slashing of $2 billion annually from food stamps. Some in the GOP favored a deeper cut and allowing states to impose broad new work requirements on food stamp recipients
STOCK MARKET MELTDOWN
(AP) - Concerns about a slowdown in China and about an increase in interest rates in the U.S. have sparked a global sell-off of stocks. U.S. investors dumped stocks and bonds for a second day following comments by the Federal Reserve that it may phase out its stimulus program later this year. Some analysts say that could drive up interest rates. Others say the sell-off is an overreaction.
(AP) - The Labor Department says applications for U.S. unemployment benefits rose by 18,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 354,000. Despite the increase, the level remains consistent with moderate job growth. Applications have fallen 6 percent since January. That suggests companies are cutting fewer jobs.
(AP) - A jury of six women has been seated in Florida to hear the trial of former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Jurors won't be identified until after the trial. The jury appears to be made up of five white women and a sixth a prosecutor describes as "black or Hispanic."
(AP) - Senators are struggling to hold together a bipartisan deal to keep student loan rates from doubling on July 1 as their colleagues trade political barbs with little more than a week to go before the deadline. The Congressional Budget Office on Thursday said a bipartisan proposal that would link student loan interest rates to financial markets would save the government more than $8 billion over the next decade.
AP) - Facebook is adding a video service to its popular photo-sharing app Instagram, following in the heels of Twitter's growing video-sharing app, Vine. Users will be able to record 15-second clips by tapping a video icon on the app. If users like it, Facebook's move could propel mobile video sharing into the mainstream. Instagram has 100 million users.
