Leftover nuggets from Kasich's State of the State speech

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: February 25, 2014

Here are a few leftover nuggets from Gov. John Kasich's State of the State speech in Medina Monday that didn't make it into our package today.

* Big flag: The giant flag Kasich spoke in front of -- a mainstay during his annual speech -- was made at the Ohio State Reformatory for Women in Marysville. The governor donates the flag to the host location, which means Medina High School just got a big flag.

* Local law enforcement: About 35 officers from Medina, Medina Township, Montville Township, Wadsworth and the Medina County Sheriff's Office assisted the state Highway Patrol with security for the event. Medina Police Sgt. Ed Kinney said security posed a "logistical challenge" because the Medina High campus is so large.

* "Batch" buttons: Numerous people in the audience wore yellow and black buttons with "Batch" on them, an homage to House Speaker Bill Batchelder, who is in his final year in the legislature.
