Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler's biggest concern about ex-Attorney General Marc Dann's scandal-plagued office is if it will negatively impact the state investigating agency. Leffler said he wants the morale at the Ohio Bureau of Identification & Investigation (BCI&I) to be good. The prosecutor doesn't want to see the controversy surrounding Dann to "trickle" down to BCI&I. Agents process crime scenes for Huron County law enforcement officials and testify about findings they made after analyzing the evidence.

A total of 36 patrons have tested positive for salmonella connected to an outbreak at Casa Fiesta, the Huron County General Health District announced Friday. "We do not suspect that the salmonella is circulating in the food supply because no other local or statewide restaurants are suspected as a source," Huron County Health Commissioner Tim Hollinger said in a prepared statement after his department received results of a related laboratory analysis. "When a food supplier is the source of an outbreak, we typically see people who have eaten at various restaurants statewide." In addition to the 36 patrons, another 28 customers reported salmonella symptoms, but they chose not to be tested. Two of the patrons with symptoms tested negative for salmonella. Five Casa Fiesta employees have tested positive for salmonella; 18 other employees at the Milan Avenue restaurant have tested negative.
