Jerry Dirr, creator of Phratry Records

In 2004, Jerry Dirr, drummer for the band Knife the Symphony, got the crazy idea that he wanted to start his own record label, with a focus on presenting the kind of music that he likes and that he thought deserved to get noticed.  

Ten years later he and his label, Phratry Records have established relationships with dozens of bands and have released albums for groups from as far away as Toronto [The Shanks], Madison, WI [Tyranny is Tyranny], Portland, OR [Palo Verde] and even Croatia [Joe 4].

Mt. Adams residents raising opposition to taller buildings

Update 09/10/14 at 3:30 PM:  Mount Adams residents are opposing a city proposal to change the zoning code to allow taller buildings in their neighborhood.  Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said Wednesday he agrees with them. 

The plan is part of a broader zoning overhaul.  Mayor Cranley said his administration inherited the issue.

"I'm not sure it's worth pursuing in light of the kind of negative reaction we're getting everywhere we go with it," Cranley said.  "I'm not proposing this and I'm not sure candidly that the zoning code needs a lot of fixing."
