Ohio is staking its future on autonomous and connected driving technology.  Portions of Ohio roadways are being used as testing corridors for the new tech that aims to put computers in control and reduce the potential for human error behind the wheel.  Plus, Lake Erie's waters are wide open as we head into the second half of winter.  What are the consequences for the lake and the environment?  Then, we'll hear about a proposal by Governor John Kasich to send teachers into the business community to help students better prepare for careers.
