An archaeological study is underway in preparation for the construction of a new marina at Caesar Creek, said to be one of the largest of its kind in southwest Ohio, when completed at the start of the 2016 boating season.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has temporarily lowered the level of the lake by 10 feet for the study. This is the first step in getting the proper permits to set up a construction schedule.
There will be no shortage of contested races in the four southwest Ohio counties in the May primary.
The deadline for candidates to file for the May primary was 4 p.m. today.
The following is a list of the contested races. It is not the final, official list because petitions still have to be checked by county boards of elections for some of the candidates who filed. Here’s who filed:
9th Ohio Senate District: Incumbent Democrat Eric Kearney is term-limited out; and his open seat has drawn a crowd in the Democratic primary.
David Lewis has a commentary about the late acclaimed jazz bandleader/composer/musician Earl Fuller, leader of Earl Fuller’s Famous Jazz Band, which recorded and performed in the early 20th century. Though born in Illinois, his family was predominantly based in Warren County and he is buried with other family members in Morrow, Ohio.
