The Toledo Zoo is the new home for a rescued kodiak bear cub. The cub, named Dodge - after one of his rescuers, was one of three male cubs rescued last year after their mother was sadly killed by hunters off the southern coast of Alaska.

The small orphan cubs spent six months at the Alaska Zoo, before two were sent to Wisconsin and Dodge made his way to Toledo. Dodge joined two other orphan cubs at the Toledo Zoo -- and they're all now bonding with their keepers and acclimating to their new home. The bears are learning to respond to their names, move between holding areas, and separate at feeding times. The zoo expects the bears to go on public display sometime this summer.

Ohio voters head to polls next week. But before Ohioans cast their ballots, the state's election chief answered some questions -- with the help of social media.

Secretary of State John Husted hosted his first twitter town hall last week. He used the microblogging platform to respond to election-related questions sent to his account, along with those tweeted with the hashtag #askSOSHusted.
A spokesman says the online event aimed to engage voters and reach newly registered residents. Ohio Governor and presidential contender John Kasich says our home state will be a game-changer.
