4 Ohio cities make Forbes 'dying' list

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio dominates a magazine's new list of what it calls America's fastest-dying cities.

Forbes magazine names four Ohio cities in its list of 10 that have weak population growth and sputtering local economies. They are Canton, Cleveland, Dayton and Youngstown.

The cities were listed alphabetically, not ranked.

An article in Forbes' new issue says the list shows that America's old manufacturing backbone is in rougher shape than ever and still looking for something to replace its smokestacks.
