Fairfield Township

WKRC-TV

Deb Dixon's first TV dream never came true. Thank goodness for that. She switched majors at Baldwin Wallace College in the early 1970s from sociology to communications because she wanted to host a children's TV show.

Instead she became one of Cincinnati television's best crime reporters, and one of our top TV storytellers, in her 44 years at WKRC-TV. After anchorman Nick Clooney left Channel 12, Dixon became the heart and soul of the newsroom, breaking the biggest crime news, giving hugs and support to her coworkers, and carrying on the spirit of her mentor Clooney.

The Butler County Sheriff wants to take over policing duties in Fairfield Township.

In a letter to the township administrator, Sheriff Richard Jones says a proposed 4.8 mil public safety levy is too high. He says he can provide police services for what the levy currently generates, about $1.8 million he says.

He's proposing a five year agreement.

Township officials say they’ve received the sheriff’s letter but no formal action has been taken at this time.
