Ohio’s improving economy lowers mortgage problems
(FROM NEWS SUN) Better economic conditions and tighter underwriting standards in Ohio are leading to fewer problem loans, another signal of the state’s housing market recovery, Federal Reserve researchers said.

The housing market collapsed in 2007-08 after millions of homeowners found their mortgages unaffordable and their home loans defaulted and were foreclosed.
Schools face up to $1.3M cuts
(NEWS SUN) Federal sequestration budget cuts could cost Clark and Champaign County schools up to $1.3 million for tutors and other staff members that help disadvantaged students, at the same time that districts are facing new state reading requirements.
Ohio schools received more than $635 million in Title I dollars this school year; $10 million of that went to Clark and Champaign County schools, according to the Ohio Department of Education.
For Springfield, the cuts could mean eliminating 40 to 50 tutoring positions, Springfield City School District Treasurer Dale Miller said. About 80 percent of Springfield’s students qualify for Title-funded services.
