Feagler and Friends - Teen Killing; Kent State, New Evidence?
Teen Killing: Arthur Buford, 15, was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong victim. A man Buford and a 16-year-old accomplice sought to rob pulled out a gun and started shooting. Buford died of his wounds, the accomplice has been indicted in Buford's death and the man who fired the shots, although not accused of wrongdoing by authorities, is a pariah in his own neighborhood. The incident has sparked concern over the future of troubled youth and questions about the safety of law-abiding citizens.

Kent State, New Evidence? One of the men wounded by a volley of National Guard gunfire at Kent State University May 4, 1970 this week produced an audio tape he purports contains evidence that guardsmen received an order to fire. Guard members have maintained there was no such order. But shooting victim and protester Alan Canfora says an audio recording made that day features a voice saying, "point&fire." Canfora wants authorities to examine the evidence.

Strippers Unite: A coalition of exotic dancers rallied in Columbus this week to protest a proposed law that would limit the hours of operation at topless bars and toughen rules forbidding contact between dancers and patrons. The dancers say the law would cut into their income and infringe on their basic rights to make a living. Proponents of the law say it's aimed at stifling prostitution.

Newsmaker: Michael Dolan, executive director, Ohio Lottery Commission. In late March, Dolan left Cleveland City Council where he'd represented the city's 16th Ward for eleven years. Dolan now heads up a state lottery operation that generates sales of $2-billion-a-year, or $194 per person. Since its establishment in 1974, the state lottery has generated $14.5-billion dollars for public education. Dolan will talk with Mr. Feagler about the lottery's immediate and long-term future.
