COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) and his 2014 Democratic challenger, Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County executive Ed FitzGerald, were among state and local officials across Ohio who commemorated the legacy of civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.


Songs, prayers, service projects and parades were among ways King’s life and impact were celebrated Monday.


Kasich spoke at a music-filled birthday breakfast in Columbus and issued a proclamation honoring King’s groundbreaking achievements and compassion (http://1.usa.gov/1eNDUWQ ).


In Cleveland, FitzGerald joined with City Year team members and volunteers at Franklin D. Roosevelt Academy to freshen the school’s appearance and paint murals. It was part of a nationwide day of service.


A march and memorial at the University of Dayton kicked off a week of lectures, film screenings and related activities planned there.
