Ohio public-records mediation a smart move for state and its citizens: editorial
Peace at last? A new Ohio mediation option applauded by the editorial board could stop the long, costly battles over public records between citizens and state and local governments. The Ohio legislature deserves a thumbs-up for giving citizens a way to dig into public records without forcing them to dig deep into their pockets.  Under Substitute Senate Bill 321, which passed in June and goes into effect Sept. 28, citizens denied public records by a government entity in Ohio will be able to opt for a $25 mediation process through the Ohio Court of Claims instead of having to file a lawsuit and thereby forcing the government to defend itself in court. Mediation should ensure that more Ohioans are able to take advantage of the state's open records law, which is the hallmark of good, transparent government.  Mediation part of public records bill Currently, citizens denied public records have only one legal remedy: a mandamus action, or a writ, through the courts forcing the government to turn the public records over. But litigation can be a sky-high barrier for many record-seeking citizens who lack the money to hire a lawyer.  Soon, rejected citizens will be able to pay $25 to file a complaint in their county clerk's office for the Ohio Court of Claims, which will then attempt to mediate the problem.

The judge can then issue a legally binding decision. That ruling is appealable, but the idea is that most of these disputes will be resolved efficiently within weeks, not months, by an independent, third party. About 28 states already offer mediation as a way to resolve public-records disputes, said Dennis Hetzel, executive director of the Ohio Newspaper Association.   Hetzel supports the new Ohio law, as does state Auditor Dave Yost and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Yost and DeWine said they will likely dismantle their programs to mediate public-records disputes. Ideally, there should be no need for mediation or lawsuits. Ohio Revised Code 149.43 has a right-thinking view of how public records should be handled: Public records (with some reasonable exceptions, such as personal information about law-enforcement personnel) should be "promptly prepared and made available for inspection ( or copying) to any person at all reasonable times during regular business hours." And the requester need not even give her or his name. Despite the clarity of Ohio law, it is not unusual for some cities and villages to thumb their noses at it and refuse to turn over consultant contracts, mayor's schedules, public officials' garage-door logs and other documents on the flimsiest excuses.  If public-records mediation works as it should, it will give many citizens an opportunity to pry those records free without costly dramas. That's how it should be. Gray skies during Sunshine Week Have something to say about this topic?

Avon police sergeant admits having a beer before drunken-driving arrest (video)
An Avon police sergeant arrested on drunken-driving charges told a state trooper he had a beer before the Labor Day traffic stop. Watch video AVON, Ohio -- An Avon police sergeant arrested on drunken-driving charges told a state trooper he had a beer before the Labor Day traffic stop. Sgt. George A. Ruple, 37, of North Olmsted, told the trooper in a conversation captured on dash cam video that he had one beer about an hour before the traffic stop . The trooper later replied, "I don't believe you had one beer," and placed Ruple under arrest. Ruple on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and driving outside of marked lanes. Avon Municipal Court Judge Darrel Bilancini granted Ruple limited driving privileges to attend work and doctors' appointments pending the outcome of the case. Previous coverage: Avon police sergeant granted limited driving privileges after drunken-driving arrest A state trooper stopped Ruple's car about 2:17 a.m. Monday on Kinzel Road near Stoney Ridge Road in Avon. The video shows Ruple performing field sobriety tests. He walks a straight line, placing heel to toe, and holds one foot off the ground while counting to 27. The trooper can be heard telling Ruple he pulled him over because he went left of center and he was traveling faster than the 25 mph posted speed limit. After Ruple is handcuffed and placed in the back of the patrol car, what appears to be an Avon police SUV drives by. An unidentified officer then gets into the driver's seat of Ruple's car and drives away. Ruple was taken to the Sheffield Police Department for testing and released to another adult, a state patrol sergeant said. The 12-year veteran of the Avon Police Department has taken off from work since the incident. It's unclear when he will return to work. Ruple is due back in court Sept. 20. Avon police will decide whether Ruple will face discipline once the case makes its way through court.

Avon police sergeant granted limited driving privileges after drunken-driving arrest
A judge granted limited driving privileges to an Avon police sergeant arrested on a drunken-driving charge. AVON, Ohio -- A judge granted limited driving privileges to an Avon police sergeant arrested on a drunken-driving charge, according to court records.  Avon Lake Municipal Court Judge Darrel Bilancini on Wednesday granted Sgt. George Rupel's attorney's request for a stay on a driver's license suspension to allow him to attend work and doctors' appointments pending the outcome of the case, a court clerk said. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles automatically suspends the licenses of every person cited with drunken-driving charges in the state, the clerk said. Rupel, 37, of North Olmsted pleaded not guilty to charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and driving outside of marked lanes. He is due back in court Sept. 20. An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper pulled Ruple over at 2:17 a.m. Monday on Kinzel Road near Stoney Ridge Road in Avon. Ruple was driving left of the center road line, a state patrol sergeant told cleveland.com. Avon police Chief Richard Bosley said Thursday morning that Ruple had taken off from work since the incident and the chief had not received paperwork about Rupel's driving privileges from the court. Bosley did not know when Ruple would return to work. Ruple is a patrol supervisor and has been with the Avon Police Department for 12 years. He was an officer with the North Ridgeville Police Department for five years before that, Bosley said. Avon police will decide whether Bosley will face discipline once the case makes its way through court. "We want to make sure we have all the facts," Bosley said. Ruple and his attorney could not be reached for comment. If you wish to discuss or comment on this story, please visit our crime and courts comments section. Like Chanda Neely on Facebook.
