A young, female manatee named "Woodstock" is the newest addition to the Cincinnati Zoo. The 900-pound, two-year-old arrived Friday from the Columbus Zoo.
Though born in the wild, Woodstock was rescued along with her mother off the Southwest coast of Florida in 2011. Both were victims of cold-stress (prolonged exposure to low temperatures), and while Woodstock survived, her mother did not.
Race Street will be closed for two weekends between Fifth and Sixth Streets for construction. Crews are tearing down what remains of the Skywalk in preparation for construction of the new Dunnhumby building.
The closures begin on Saturday, January 12 at 6:00 a.m. and remain closed until Sunday, January 13 at 6:00 p.m., and will be closed again on Saturday, January 26 at 6:00 a.m. and remain closed until Sunday, January 27 at 6:00 p.m.
Listening Thursday night to P.G. Sittenfeld, a Democratic Cincinnati city council member, and Mike Wilson, the founder of the Cincinnati Tea Party, sit onstage at Hebrew Union College might, one would think, produce some partisan sparks.
