Three Cincinnati residents who live near Washington Park are filing a federal civil rights suit against the city's park board and parks director over rules for the park. The suit by Jerry Davis, Andrew Fitzpatrick, and Agnes Brown says the rules were created in an unconstitutional fashion that discriminates against certain classes of people.
Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition executive director Josh Spring says the Washington Park rules are different from the ones in other city parks:
It's been six months since the Village of Moscow was ravaged by a tornado. For some it has taken this long to move back in.
Councilman and resident Kent Jones now has his next door neighbors back. The March tornado destroyed their home and just this week they moved back in. What he doesn't have is trees in the lot between their homes. However a thoughtful planting effort is underway in the village.
Update: After this interview was recorded, Former Governor Strickland's speech was moved to tonight (Tuesday).
WVXU Political Reporter Howard Wilkinson is at the Democratic National Convention. He talks with Maryanne Zeleznik about what former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland will say to the delegates tonight, and the possibility of his running for Governor again.
Cincinnati firefighter Doug Stern, who appeared in TV commercials last year urging voters to repeal Senate Bill 5, will speak at the first session of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte tonight.
Stern, a member of Cincinnati Firefighters Local 48, will speak briefly sometime between 6 and 7 p.m. tonight.
His subject, no doubt, will be Senate Bill 5, the Republican-backed legislation which would have limited the collective bargaining powers of public employees such as police, firefighters and teachers.
