Good morning, iOpeners. It's Friay, April 26, 2019. 

Cleveland officials are clarifying reports about the ongoing technical problems at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, saying core business systems at the airport have not been affected.  In a statement, the city said payroll, accounting and timekeeping operations were not compromised and remain fully functional.  Problems remain, though, with the airport’s flight and baggage information screens and its email.

At least 268 people were killed and more than 3,000 injured by distracted drivers in Ohio over the last five years, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.  The report, from a task force formed last year, said there were more than 80,000 distracted driving-related crashes over that time and its authors blamed smart phones.  The report's recommendations include spending more time discussing distracted driving during drivers’ education classes.
