Four Hurt in RTA Bus Accident/Cooler Temps/Nick Lachey and Marijuana Grow Center

Several passengers were hurt when an RTA bus was involved in an accident in Cleveland. Four people have been transported to MetroHealth Medical Center, according to EMS. Two people were seriously injured while two others suffered minor injuries. The crash happened at East 131st and St. Clair early Wednesday morning. It appears the driver hit a support on a bridge. The crash is under investigation.

Last night's industrial strength cold front will take the credit for brisk north winds, remarkably drier air and refreshingly cooler temperatures over the next couple of days.  As we enjoy a slow clearing trend, temperatures will top out only in the lower 70s today but that north wind will keep temperatures only around 70 along the lakeshore.  Starry skies and pleasant sleeping temperatures in the mid 50s will be the rule tonight. Thursday mainly sunny with some high clouds on the increase by afternoon.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Ohio resident and former boy band star Nick Lachey is among five investors in one of 10 marijuana grow centers that would be created across the state under a proposed ballot issue. The Akron Beacon Journal reports ( ) ResponsibleOhio is attempting to get an issue on the Nov. 3 ballot that would legalize marijuana for medical and personal use by adults 21 years or older. The ballot issue would limit the growing to specific locations where groups of investors financing the operations own or have the option to buy property. The 98 Degrees singer, most recently a television actor, is hoping to bring a grow center to Hudson. ResponsibleOhio estimates the initiative would generate about $21.5 million in annual tax revenue for Summit County and its townships and municipalities.
