Henry, the Cincinnati Zoo's new male hippo, did some heavy duty courting Thursday, the opening day of Hippo Cove. He's been by himself for 20 years at another zoo and is now joined by female, Bibi. Zookeepers say, however, she's in charge and tires of Henry chasing her around.

Nearly 200 years ago, a student at Cincinnati College wrote a letter to Thomas Jefferson asking about a particular Polish general from the Revolutionary War. Jefferson wrote back, and his response is being donated - along with that student's thesis - to the University of Cincinnati.

Some top Ohio Democrats say they want to make sure messages at the Republican National Convention  they claim are false, are corrected.

 Two women who have been icons of Ohio Republican politics are in Cleveland this week, one helping to run the show and the other as a delegate at her fifth Republican National Convention.  WKSU’s M.L Schultze spoke with them separately about their goals for the party now that a convention each described as “like no other” is wrapping up.

Thursday is the final day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Delegates will hear from nominee Donald Trump as he accepts their nomination. But first, WVXU's Politics Reporter Howard Wilkinson talks with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik to wrap up Wednesday's events and chat about what local delegates have on the day's agenda.

During a panel discussion at the national NAACP convention in Cincinnati Wednesday, Retired Appeals Court Judge Nathaniel Jones criticized Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and John Roberts for their jurisprudence and Congress for its failure to correct the removal of section five from the voting rights act.

CLEVELAND – Two of Ohio's top Republican elected officials – Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted – agree that if Donald Trump is to win Ohio, he must lean on the party organization to do it.

Ohioans To Trump: Sound Presidential In Acceptance Speech

CLEVELAND – Sound like a president, not like a candidate. That is what many in the Ohio delegation – a delegation that cast all of its 66 votes for Ohio Gov. John Kasich Tuesday night - want to hear from GOP nominee Donald Trump when he takes the stage Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena to deliver his acceptance speech, the biggest speech the billionaire developer has delivered in his still-brief political career.
