    CINCINNATI — Years after a wave of construction brought publicly financed stadiums costing billions of dollars to cities across the country, taxpayers are once again being asked to reach into their pockets. From New Jersey to Ohio to Arizona, the stadiums were sold as a key to redevelopment and as the only way to retain sports franchises. But the deals that were used to persuade taxpayers to finance their construction have in many cases backfired, the result of overly optimistic revenue assumptions and the recession. Nowhere is the problem more acute than in Cincinnati. In 1996, voters in Hamilton County...

At the school, the man claiming to be an agent, asked the principal whether a particular street was within the school's attendance area.

    From Cincinnati, which has seen a little controversy lately, comes this story about some widening cracks within the "one holy Catholic and apostolic" Church Catholics stand together during Sunday Mass to recite the "Profession of Faith," a creed that defines precisely what it is that makes them Catholic. "We believe in God ... We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ ... We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church." The prayer covers a lot of ground, from God's creation of the Earth to Christ's birth and crucifixion to the promise of life in heaven. Most churchgoing Catholics memorized the...

About one hundred conservatives attended on a warm, sunny evening to add their opinions and views regarding the Obama Health Insurance Bill, and other political subjects. The event was peaceful. Once, when the Liberal / Democrats were yelling a chant ,"health care now", the conservative responded with a rousing "U S A, U S A, U S A,, much to the chagrin of the other side. One of the Democrat/ Liberal pro-Health Insurance people said, "We don't care...

    Police in one American city have a new ally in the fight against crime - whether they want it or not. A self-proclaimed superhero has taken to the streets of Cincinnati. His bizarre costume may be home-made and he may not be able to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, but 'Shadow Hare' has warned criminals 'they have nowhere to hide'. At just 5ft 7ins tall and weighing in at about 10 stone, the mystery crime fighter won't have many law-breakers quaking in their boots. Which perhaps explains why Shadow Hare arms himself with handcuffs, a taser and...

    CINCINNATI -- Tax day was a fitting backdrop for a protest Wednesday in downtown Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Tea Party held its second protest in a month against President Barack Obama's spending policies. Organizers said they've been "taxed enough already," which is why they are holding the Tax Day protests. "Our government takes an ever increasing share of the money we earned, and wastes it on every pet project under the sun," local organizers say on their Web site.

So it’s a particularly poetic twist of fate that Porkopolis should be the scene of a huge Tea Party tax protest this Sunday.

But did the mainstream media notice? “Unless you frequent conservative websites,” NewsBusters noted, “you’d have no idea that such events were being staged.”

    Washington, DC ( -- To draw attention to the way abortion disproportionately affects the African-American community, black pro-life advocates will be protesting outside the upcoming annual meeting of the nation's largest organization representing blacks. The NAACP protest will also reach the Democratic presidential candidate. Rev. Clenard Childress, a New Jersey pastor, told about the protest and said pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama and former candidate Hillary Clinton will be at the convention.  "Because 2008 is an election year, the presidential candidates will undoubtedly speak at the convention. This gives us a national stage to make our case to the...

    CINCINNATI The Post newspapers in Cincinnati and Kentucky printed their final editions yesterday, ending a 126-year run. The front-page headline in the last Kentucky Post proclaimed "-30-," a symbol used by journalists, printers, and telegraphers to signal the end of a dispatch. It rolled off the presses about an hour after its sister Cincinnati Post ended publication. The two papers, which were published in the afternoon, have been struggling for decades, part of a national trend. E.W. Scripps Co., of Cincinnati, owner of the two papers, decided in July to close them when a joint operating agreement with Gannett Co....

    In the newsroom of The Cincinnati Post, neither Champagne corks nor beer can tabs will be popping on Monday after the paper is put to bed — and not just because of a ban on alcohol that day. The Dec. 31 issues of the paper and a companion title, The Kentucky Post, will be the last for both newspapers, which are part of a dying breed of afternoon dailies. Fewer than 10 cities still have two or more daily newspapers, and Cincinnati was the last two-paper town in Ohio. The demise of The Post, which is 126 years old, leaves...

    It appears only one side of the abortion debate was allowed.   Shannon Nixson, a case manager and graduate student, was fired this month from the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati after she invited a pro-life speaker to address pregnant women at the club. Nixson said she was allowed to recruit speakers on both sides of several other issues, but only one view of the abortion debate was welcomed. Nixson asked a representative of Life Issues Institute to present a pro-life perspective during a seminar on employment and literacy. “Within the next couple of days, I was told that I was terminated,...
