Artists and authors David and Barbara Day join Brian O’Donnell to talk about their new book of drawings and stories about our ever-changing city. Vanishing Cincinnati seeks to preserve some of the classic architecture and geography of this area as was seen from the 1800’s on in a unique and artistic way. The book’s launch will take place on Sunday, December 2 at the Main Branch of the Public Library downtown.
The Hamilton County Board of Elections isn’t finished counting the votes from the Nov. 6 election; but it was only a matter of time before the 2013 race for Cincinnati mayor began.
John Cranley, the former Democratic city councilman and two-time congressional candidate, settled that hash this week when he announced he will be a candidate for mayor, issuing a press release and holding a flurry of media interviews.
Cincinnati has officially launched its new car-sharing service that city officials say will give residents and commuters an alternative to driving a personal vehicle. Mayor Mark Mallory says six of the Zipcars will be available--two at Garfield Place and Race Street, two at The Banks and two in Over-the-Rhine.
"This is a opportunity for people to not own a car, if they choose not to do that, because they can go online and sign up for a membership to Zipcar," said Mallory.
