Nelsonville Bar Owner Shot & Killed
One million dollars bond has been set for a 22 year old Georgia man arrested for the shooting death of the owner of The Mine Tavern in Nelsonville last night. Taylor Allen Mills was ejected from the bar for being unruly. Witnesses say Mills returned causing more trouble and throwing an object at a window. Bar owner Timothy Koker was shot and killed after he asked Mills to leave again. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for December 30. A plea has not yet been entered to the charge of murder.

Ohio and West Virginia Ask Feds to Stay EPA Rule
Ohio, West Virginia and 25 other states are asking a federal appeals court to stay the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Clean Power Plan.” The response comes two months after many of those same states sued the EPA, arguing the Power Plan drastically reshuffles the nation’s energy portfolio and does so without congressional authority. West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey says the Power Plan exceeds the EPA’s authority by double regulating coal-fired power plants and by forcing states to fundamentally alter their energy portfolios and shift away from coal-fired generation.
