The FBI, one of several agencies investigating Braking Point Recovery Center, is asking members of the public who have had interactions with the addiction treatment center to get in touch if they have any concerns or information. The FBI is not releasing the reason why nearly 100 agents from multiple agencies searched the recovery center's locations on Wednesday, said FBI special agent Vicki Anderson.

Appeals court upholds decision on sewers

The 11th District Court of Appeals has upheld a Trumbull County magistrate's 2013 ruling against county officials that absolved 10 Mineral Ridge residents of paying the cost of sewer line extensions serving their neighborhood. In a ruling filed June 30, the appellate court unanimously agreed with the decision of Magistrate Beth Anne Aurillo, who ruled almost three years ago that property owners in Mineral Ridge and Vienna were not required to pay for sewer tap-ins because they were not properly notified of costs.
