The campaign is winding to a close and all signs now point to the certainty that Ohio will be the state that decides the election. We're being carpet-bombed with political ads aimed at influencing voters still undecided. We'll speculate on what more needs to be said. And if you have questions about early voting, provisional ballots or what to expect on election day, we'll have the answers. Join Mike McIntyre for The Sound of Ideas Thursday morning at 9:00 on 90.3

There's no place like home, especially when home also serves as a tax shelter. Tens of millions of taxpayers take advantage of the mortgage interest deduction, saving roughly $600 year. But some argue the government can no longer afford to let people write off the interest they pay on mortgages. How do President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney differ in their ideas to deal with mortgage interest and other tax deductions? Tomorrow morning at 9 with host Mike McIntyre on the Sound of Ideas.

One of the crucial issues for both presidential candidates as they woo Ohio voters is energy. President Obama says domestic oil, natural gas and coal production are up, and his push for renewable energy will pay long-term benefits. Mitt Romney promises energy independence by 2020 and says Obama is blocking more drilling on federal land and waters. And Obama is hindering coal production with excessive regulations. Monday on “The Sound of Ideas” we'll look at the candidate's energy policies and examine their claims.

We'll also review Thursday night's debate between the Senate hopefuls, the need - or lack of one - for local newspapers to endorse national candidates - and a decision on how to spend all that casino cash. Friday morning at nine - on 90.3 with host Rick Jackson.

You've heard a lot about the major election issues. Thursday on The Sound of Ideas, we'll look at some lesser-known ballot issues: Bedford Heights residents will vote on whether to strip Jimmy Dimora's name from a public building and require future honorees to be deceased first. Brecksville and Newburgh Heights voters are asked to declare that corporations are not people. Really? And why do we still have to vote on Sunday alcohol sales at bars and stores? Thursday morning at 9:00
