    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...

    Obama must seize his chance to give health care debate clear direction -- editorial Posted by kevobrie September 06, 2009 04:48AM President Barack Obama plans to wade back into the nation's health care debate this week, possibly during a Labor Day speech in Cincinnati and certainly during a televised address to Congress Wednesday evening. Most reports suggest that he hopes to bring some clarity to a discussion that has lost focus amid a flurry of competing congressional bills, wild talk of death panels and other distortions by his opponents and, quite frankly, Obama's failure to enunciate clearly what he wants...

    The Nathanael Greene Lodge, Wesselman Road, Cincinnati (Dent), in Green Township, was the location of Town Hall featuring Democrat Congressman Steve Driehaus. 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...

    Man, what a dump. Sorry, locals, I'm sure you're all real happy with your city and all, but I can't understand why. As a visitor to your fair city, I'll try to relate why it disappointed me so. Transport - what major city in the USA has no inter-city passenger train line? Cincinnati, that's who. It's not like it's be hard to build, and it's not like Cincinnati is such a new city that it hasn't got around to it yet. They just don't like public transport here. Heck, they just built a bridge over the river, but do you...

    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...
