CINCINNATI (AP) - A former U.S. Department of Labor secretary for the Clinton administration is scheduled to deliver the main address at a conference in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Alexis Herman will speak Saturday at the 48th Midwest Regional Conference of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The group is described as the largest African-American women's organization in the country and one that's dedicated to public service. More than 2,200 alumnae and collegiate members are expected to attend.

COUGAR, Wash. (AP) - The parents of an Ohio man found alive after he went missing nearly a week ago on a hike near Mount St. Helens in Washington state say he is being treated for dehydration and staying overnight in a hospital. At a news conference Wednesday outside a Vancouver, Washington, hospital, Carney and Linda Matheny say their son Matthew survived on berries and bees that he killed. They say he wasn't familiar with the terrain, became lost and had not seen a person since Aug. 9.

(AP) - A non-profit group that tracks clergy sexual abuse cases says only about 40 of the nearly 200 dioceses in the U.S. have released lists of priests accused of abusing children, and there have been only nine investigations by a prosecutor or grand jury of a Catholic diocese or archdiocese in the U.S. The founder of BishopAccountability.org says, "It happens everywhere, so it's not really so much a question of where has it happened, but instead, where has word gotten out."

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio State University Diving Club is asking a federal court to dismiss claims against it in a lawsuit over allegations that a former coach sexually abused young divers and that Indiana-based USA Diving didn't respond properly. The club argues in a court filing that as part of the public university, it can't be sued without its consent under the legal doctrine of sovereign immunity, which generally protects the government from lawsuits.
