In Cincinnati, hundreds of people will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Martin Luther King Day.
A noon commemorative celebration at Music Hall is the culmination of a morning filled with remembrances. The day begins with a Freedom Center breakfast, a march to Fountain Square for a prayer service, and then a march to Music Hall. That's where the Honorable Judge Jeffery Hopkins will be the keynote speaker. There will also be choral and theatrical performances.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, like many seasoned election veterans, likes to help the young aspiring politicians who, in years past, helped him get where he wanted to go.
That’s what Strickland was doing in Cincinnati Friday, at the Southern Baptist Church and elsewhere, where he joined Greg Landsman, a fellow Democrat, as Landsman officially launched his run for a seat on Cincinnati City Council.
A construction zone will be set up on Pete Rose Way from Broadway to Johnny Bench Way so workers can safely remove the steel structure of the pedestrian bridge over Pete Rose Way to the Arena/Ball Park Plaza.
It's a continuation of the work that removed concrete decking from the bridge this week.
Removal of the steel structure starts Monday, January 21, and lasts until the following Sunday, February 3, unless it's completed sooner.
The new pedestrian bridge, part of The Banks project, is scheduled to open in October.
