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.
Some Hamilton County employees could see a big change coming to their health insurance. Commissioner Chris Monzel wants to make the county's Medical Expense Reimbursement Plan (MERP) mandatory for all eligible, non-union employees.
