Welcome back from Spring Break friends.  Hope you are all excited to be back, because you are.

The Lead Story:

We have a new Pope, his name is Francis, and he seems like a pretty cool guy.  He is the first non-European Pope in almost 1,200 years.

Everything Else:

The Sequester happened.  Both Democrats and Republicans are working to fix the situation and pass a budget.

The March Madness bracket was released.  Unsurprisingly Gonzaga, Louisville, KU and Indiana are all seeded number 1.

Two Steubenville, OH teenagers were found guilty of the rape of a 16-year old high school student.

No one really knows what is going on with North Korea as they have threatened multiple countries in the last week.

The Long Read: Why do gun manufacturers fear the NRA, one of the most powerful lobbies in the United States?

The Weather: Unsurprisingly, Ohio weather stays terrible.  Snow and rain all the way through Friday.
