SHARONVILLE - If there are Republicans who were waiting for a toned-down Donald Trump, reading carefully written speeches from a teleprompter, he didn't show up here Wednesday night.  

At least he was nowhere to be seen when he spoke before a crowd of thousands of cheering and adoring supporters at the Sharonville Convention Center Wednesday night.

Donald Trump will hold a public rally with Cincinnati area supporters Wednesday night at the Sharonville Convention Center, following a private fundraising event.

  SHARONVILLE - In his nearly eight months of campaigning for the GOP presidential nomination, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been, as he described it to hundreds of friendly suburban Republicans here Saturday morning, “unrelentingly positive.”

He has not engaged in the name-calling and yelling that has marked most of the televised GOP candidate debates. But he has also never called out his chief rival in Tuesday’s critical Ohio primary, billionaire Donald J. Trump, for the angry tone he has set for his campaign or the violence that often erupts at his campaign events.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, campaigning in Sharonville Tuesday, told reporters his remarks on national TV Sunday saying he opposed a Muslim serving in the White House were taken out of context.

It was his first public appearance since he went on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday, and said he could not support a Muslim in the White House because Islam is inconsistent with the Constitution.

Sharonville has announced plans for a $14 million, 120-room anchor hotel at the Sharonville Convention Center.  The city has signed a memorandum of understanding with Rolling Hills Hospitality Group to start work on the hotel.  The city says in a statement the development will bring additional economic impact to the region by attracting more conventions and trade shows.   

Operated by Historic Southwest Ohio, the Heritage Village Museum in Sharonville allows visitors to take a step back in time and to get a glimpse of what life was like in 19th century Ohio.  The village operates year-round and volunteers provide tours, as well as traditional crafts and cooking demonstrations.
