Former Cincinnati Vice Mayor Jim Tarbell, who just sold Grammer’s
restaurant in late 2007, ran to see the historic landmark on fire in
Over-the-Rhine. High winds – remnants of Hurricane Ike that made
landfall in Texas Friday – tore through Cincinnati for about four
hours Sunday, doing damage all throughout the region.

Nearly 700,000 Duke Energy electric customers were without power – the
largest power outage in the company’s history, said Kathy Meineke,
Duke spokeswoman.
