Help Needed in Ohio

I found something disturbing over at Alphecca:

According to Ohioans For Concealed Carry two newspapers have started to publish the names of concealed carry permit holders in two Ohio counties.

The newspapers in question are the the Warren Tribune Chronicle & the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. They've been publishing the names of permit holders in Trumbull & Lorain counties respectively. At least according to Ohioans For Concealed Carry. I haven't been able to find the lists in question on either of the papers websites, but they could have merely published them in the print version.

Here's where I need your help:

If you are in or around Ohio & can send me confirmation that either of the papers have in fact published the names of concealed permit holders I would much appreciate it.

Also if you have any legally obtained information regarding anyone who works for either newspaper please send it to me.

The reason being is I (& possibly others) intend to publish any & all legally obtainable information about anyone who works at any newspaper who publishes such a list. But I want to make sure they have in fact published a list of concealed carry permit holders names before I do so.

I do not agree with concealed carry permit laws as they treat what should be regarded as a Right as a privilige. But it is wrong to disrespect the privacy of those who felt compelled to obtain a permit.
