President Trump was in Cincinnati Wednesday for a speech on rebuilding America's waterways. The Kroger Company announced plans to build a mixed-use project downtown, which will include the first grocery store the company has had downtown since 1969.

Last Friday Cincinnati leaders announced a proposal to review and refresh the city's Collaborative Agreement, negotiated in 2002. The agreement was put in place following the civil unrest in 2001, after a white Cincinnati police officer, Stephen Roach, shot and killed Timothy Thomas, a 19-year-old, unarmed African-American.

Let me get this out of the way first: I've been listening to public broadcasting for 40-plus years, and I would write this column whether or not I work for Cincinnati Public Radio and WVXU-FM now.

Nobody welcomes public broadcasting fundraising drives, which interrupt our favorite formats, but Maryanne Zeleznik and Jay Hanselman do it better than anyone else I've heard. They truly put the most fun into fundraising, of all the Cincinnati non-commercial stations.
