Attorneys for the Anna Louise Inn will go before the Cincinnati Historic Conservation Board this afternoon for a second time. The board issued a favorable report last week. The 103 year old building housing low-income women is in need of renovation and attorney Tim Burke is trying a new tactic.
"Now we're asking the city to approve the entire Anna Louise Inn as a conditional use or a special assistance shelter but the uses won't change."
This Wednesday Cincinnati State and Technical College will open a Middletown Campus. Director Michael Chikeleze says the new campus will have nearly 200 new students when it opens this week. Students will also be able to take classes at the Main Campus in Cincinnati as well as online. It will be the only Community and Technical College in Butler County.
Ohio's delegation to the Republican National Convention - set to begin Monday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in downtown Tampa - is already gathering in the city on the bay, hoping for a convention that will give its presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, a bounce in the polls.
They're also hoping to stave off disaster - natural disaster, in this case, which is entirely possible given the fact that Tropical Storm Isaac could be at hurricane status by the time it passes by the Tampa Bay area in the Gulf of Mexico, probably on Monday.
