Cincinnati Council could vote Wednesday on a funding plan to allow the Port Authority to demolish the former Hudepohl Brewery building on West Sixth Street in Queensgate.

The Port said initial estimates indicated it could take $3.5 million to demolish and remediate the site.  Officials said they are working with contractors to get that number closer to $2 million.

A University of Dayton researcher is creating a different way to study drugs that could potentially shorten the time it takes to develop them.

The National Science Foundations has awarded Assistant Chemistry and Bioengineering Professor Kristen Comfort a five-year $542,000 CAREER grant. The first year she plans to build a 3-D cellular model that mimics the human body. This could potentially reduce the time it takes to test new drugs, some taking as long as 25 years  from "benchtop to bedside."

There are still about 19 months before anyone in the U.S. has to vote in the mid-term Congressional elections of 2018 – a fact that would make one think that things are rather quiet on that front these days.

Except they aren't quiet.

In fact, there is a small crowd of potential Democrats gathering (and organizing) to take on three-term incumbent Republican Brad Wenstrup in Ohio's Second Congressional District next year.

Does this seem odd to you? In this heavily Republican district, one that stretches from eastern Hamilton County east to Pike and Scioto counties?
