  • Doctor “hero” at Giffords shooting says he and others are just “normal people”

    Image via Wikipedia I heard this quote on ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour” today and I really liked it. Choking back tears, Dr. David Bowman, who was shopping with his wife at the Safeway store in Tuscon, Arizona where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot and six others were killed by an alleged lone gunman,…

  • Cincinnati and Hamilton County Election Night coverage using Qik video

    I will be running around downtown Cincinnati – including the Hamilton County Board of Elections and various campaign victory parties – reporting on what I am seeing using Qik video. Check out the video below to see the latest:

  • Taming the mighty Mill Creek

    Tomorrow I embark on an adventure few in this area would ever consider doing – canoeing down the Mill Creek. It won’t be my first time. The last time was May 1, 2007 when we left from Spring Grove Avenue and got out near the Ohio River – in utter filth. What I learned on…

  • Hamilton County poised to go back to “red” this fall?

    It’s campaign season and candidates all across the region and the state are in full campaign mode. Or are they? In 2008, Hamilton County tilted toward the Democratic side for the first time since 1967 when President Lyndon Johnson lead that party’s ticket. Now, two years later and some signs point toward a red win,…

  • Parking enforcement officer writes ticket for after 8 – before 8

    Just watched as a neighbor of mine got a ticket for parking in an after-8 a.m. truck loading zone along Perry Street in downtown Cincinnati (even though this alley hasn’t been used for loading trucks in probably 30 years). Only problem was it wasn’t after 8 a.m. – even when the officer handed the neighbor…

  • About to be on City Talk Radio

    About to be on City Talk Radio in Cincinnati. 550 AM. We are in studio with Tom, Brandon, Marianne (from – gasp! – Cin Weekly) and Sweets, also known as Courtney. 🙂

  • Fernald’s magical tranformation

    Wandered Into, what is now called, the Fernald Nature Preserve. I’m here now. They have done a wonderful job transforming an old nuclear weapons processing facillity into a nature preserve and museum. The visitors’ center is the first LEED platinum certified buliding in Ohio. Seems like they are doing their darndest to fix a horrible…

  • Frank Paul Daugherty entry about being canned by WLW

    Radio locally sucks. Even little old WAIF-FM, once a great respite for local radio has gone completely down hill. Now, WLW, in an effort to save money (a push made nationally by owner Clear Channel), has cut a big chunk of their staff. John Kiesewetter at the Enquirer has a good round-up of what happened.…

  • Cincinnati census office opening to be a grand spectacle

    Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and Hamilton County Commission President David Pepper are celebrating the opening of the 2010 U.S. Census Cincinnati office with an amazing amount of fanfare. Here’s the “Who” part of the press release sent out this morning. Note that the regulars are at the beginning, added by an ever-increasing amount of, well,…
