Several suburban Dayton newspapers closing

Three Dayton-area newspapers are ceasing publication.

North Carolina-based Civitas Media says it is shutting down the Springboro Sun, the Kettering-Oakwood Times, and the Centerville-Washington Township Times.

The company's CEO Michael Bush says Civitas is focused on serving rural communities and these three papers don't fit that business model. It's also shutting down five papers in North Carolina.

A news release says affected employees are being offered positions elsewhere in the company.

Young violinist Demi Fang

Demi Fang is a senior at Centerville High School, just outside Dayton, Ohio, and she is a truly accomplished violinist. As Frank Johnson discovers in this interview, she has just been named to the inaugural National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, a touring orchestra created by Carnegie Hall and featuring 120 players all aged 16-19. After an intensive two weeks of rehearsals, they will embark on an international tour, providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity under the mentorship of acclaimed conductor Valery Gergiev.
