Short Take: Ohio blasts Ameritech low-income program

Ohio regulators say Ameritech has "dragged its feet" in implementing a subsidy system for low-income callers. The state Public Utilities Commission has given the Baby Bell six months to make changes to the system. The agency will open hearings Jan. 7 on the effects of Ameritech's pending merger with SBC Communications.
