Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune is recommending a quarter cent sales tax increase to stabilize the stadium fund. His plan would also preserve the full property tax rebate promised to voters in the mid-90's.
The board is dealing with a $7 million gap. The proposal would increase the sales tax from 6.5% to 6.75%. Here's how Hamilton County's sales tax rate compares with Ohio's other 87 counties.
Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Sam Wyche will be tail-gating with the Romney-Ryan "Commit to Mitt Early Vote Express" bus outside Paul Brown Stadium before tonight's nationally-televised Bengals-Steelers game.
Wyche is expected to join the Romney-Ryan bus, which is traveling the state promoting early voting for the GOP presidential tickets, at 5:30 p.m. in parking lot D near Paul Brown Stadium.
Wyche coached the Bengals from 1984 until 1991. He held the record for most wins by a head coach (64) until he was overtaken by Marvin Lewis, the current head coach, in 2011.
