The Gateway Community & Technical College Board of Directors will try again Tuesday to evaluate President Ed Hughes.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) President scolded the board for how it handled a similar meeting last month and sent materials submitted by members back without opening them.

It must be somewhat frustrating to be P.G. Sittenfeld these days.

The 30-year-old second-term Cincinnati council member is a candidate for the 2016 Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican Rob Portman.

When he jumped in, he was hailed by many as a fresh new face, representing a new generation of young Ohio Democrats determined to bring the party back from the dead.

Cincinnati officials say they are now "cautiously optimistic" the first streetcar vehicle will arrive by late October.  

That's about six weeks later than the original delivery date of September 17.  But right now streetcar passenger service should still begin as scheduled in September, 2016.
