Cincinnati administrators are not willing to cut a deal with the owner of a now closed restaurant at The Banks.
Liz Rogers, through a weekend letter from her attorney, asked the city to forgive her $300,000 city loan and allow her to purchase the city funded restaurant equipment for $12,000. In return she would re-open her Mahogany's restaurant at another city location within 120 days.
City spokesman Rocky Merz provided the following e-mail on the issue Tuesday morning.
Cincinnati Police Officers, in the midst of a 30-day trial for body cameras, recorded an officer involved fatal shooting Sunday, helping to back up the story told by police and witnesses.
At about 6:45 p.m. Sunday officers went to 379 Rosemont Avenue in West Price Hill for a report of shots fired. That's where they found 37-year old Christopher Mitchell with a gun to his head. Reportedly he had threatened suicide earlier in the day and pulled the trigger of another gun he held to his head, but it didn't go off. Friends say he had a history of depression and substance abuse.
There’s never been a better time to start a company in Ohio – especially a technology company. That’s the bottom line of a study done for VentureOhio, a group of venture capitalists. But VentureOhio chairman John McIlwraith of Allos Ventures of Cincinnati says there’s a problem with funding start-up entrepreneurs in Ohio.
“There’s about $520 million in need and about $260 million in capital available, and that capital is going to be deployed not just in Ohio but throughout the Midwest and potentially across the country," says McIlwraith.
