One potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Rand Paul, was in Cincinnati Friday night; and another is coming in June - former Florida governor Jeb Bush, for a private fundraising event at the Queen City Club.
According to the invitation obtained by WVXU, Bush will be here for high-priced fundraiser for the Republican National Committee (RNC). RNC chairman Reince Priebus will also be on hand.
Cincinnati officials will likely amend a controversial policy put in place last fall which limited most households to one container of trash per week.
Gerald Checco with Public Services said the city is not ready to implement those new waste regulations anyway. He said his department will be working on amendments. He made a presentation Monday to city council’s neighborhood committee.
The changes would let some households have more than one container as long as it can be picked up by the city's automated trash trucks.
With this shaping up to be a busy Memorial Day weekend for travelers, police in Ohio and Kentucky are launching the annual Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign. The federally funded program, running through June 1, is designed to increase seat belt use. Public safety officials say there have been some improvements, but there's still lots of work to do.
Ohio's 990 traffic fatalities last year was the lowest number ever recorded by the state. Still, that figure doesn't satisfy the Director of Ohio's Department of Public Safety, John Born.
