Fireworks will light up the night sky over Coney Island Saturday in the nation's first-ever "Fire Up The Night."
The event will pit fireworks teams from the U.S., Canada and Mexico against each other in a pyrotechnic extravaganza. It's being sponsored by Cincinnati-based fireworks legend Rozzi's Famous Fireworks.
Alonzo Fireworks from New York, Sirius Pyrotechnics from Quebec and Lux Pirotecnia from Mexico City will be competing for international bragging rights.
The Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition is claiming victory over what it called "special signs" erected at Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine. Three people living near the park filed suit September 4th. Coalition Executive Director Josh Spring says the Cincinnati Park Board voted today to strike down Park Rule 28, which he says allowed the board to post a sign in any park with any special rules that would be enforced like law.
You've got to look really closely, but it is amazing to see this tiny sifaka (SEE-fah-kah) clinging to its mother's chest. The baby boy weighed just slightly more than three ounces when it was born September 3 to mother Wilhelmina and father Rinaldo at the Cincinnati Zoo.
The baby, which hasn't been named yet, will continue to cling to the front of its mother for the first few weeks, and eventually move onto her back for the next six months. It'll take a year for it to reach full maturity.
