The Enquirer: Now that the election is mercifully over, we must pause to reflect on The Cincinnati Enquirer’s hodge-podge of endorsements for City Council. The paper’s slate included two Democrats, three Republicans, two Charterites, one Charter-Democrat and one independent.

Sony, 2009, Rated R

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 21, 2009
James Toback’s documentary should be subtitled Mike on Mike: It’s 90 minutes of a recently interviewed Tyson speaking directly to the camera — a single-minded perspective that proves both frustrating and fascinatingly intimate. Rambling, emotional and often surprisingly articulate, Tyson ruminates on everything from his troubled childhood and meteoric rise as a boxer.

Maybe mom’s constant advice about always washing your hands isn’t so annoying after all. UC students and staff received an e-mail Aug. 24 from University Health Services informing the campus community of two confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus, also know as “swine flu.” As of a week ago, the number of confirmed cases had doubled.

How to get the most out of your outdoor deck

Years ago, all summer entertaining was done in the front of the house. Later, the party moved to the backyard. We started with placing a charcoal grill out back to grill up a few hot dogs and have since moved on to full outdoor kitchens, expansive sitting areas and large grassy lawns on which to play cornhole or catch.   

'The Music Should Speak for Itself'

We’ve all seen the bumper sticker: a simplistic drawing of a baby chicken above the words “Chicks Rock.” Well, that statement couldn’t be truer in the case of Lisa Walker and Margaret Darling, the female faces behind local bands Wussy and The Seedy Seeds, respectively.  

The Newport Syndicate (Review)

A Piano? Fuhgeddaboutit! Restaurant needs more polish.

After watching all eight seasons of the Sopranos and Godfather I, II and III, I know a little bit about syndicates. They who help you out in a jam and then expect to be repaid. The first few times they send an enforcer, they aren’t there to kill you — they’re there to warn you.

The conceivably meaningful portion of the college basketball season is about three weeks old, telling us little except what we wanted to hear. The news is pretty good — not that it means anything.  

Why Focus on YPs?

Young professionals, the creative class, punks who think they own the city … whatever you call them or want to be called, these twenty- and thirty- and sometimes as late as freshly fiftysomethings have been recognized as a key demographic for keeping Greater Cincinnati competitive in a global marketplace.  

Barack Obama for President

As Election Day creeps ever closer, it's time for CityBeat to start publishing election endorsements and help those remaining undecided voters get their act together. Given our niche in Greater Cincinnati as a voice for progressive causes, we've recommended candidates and ballot issue positions since our founding in 1994 and take that role seriously.  

Hope Springs Eternal in Redsland, but Hope Gets Really Boring

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 1, 2008
The Reds officially ended their season Sept. 28 with a fivegame losing streak. They unofficially ended their season with a five-game losing streak at the end of July. It seemed like the Reds were always on a five-game losing streak this year. At least we know where they stand.
