County Commission in the Crosshairs

Well-known names battle for party nominations for open Hamilton County Commission seat

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Most political junkies are busy focusing on the outcome of state and federal races in Ohio's May 4 primary. But the race with probably the most local impact hasn't been getting quite the same level of public interest or media attention: Who will face off as their party's chosen candidate for the vacant seat on the Hamilton County Commission. Vying for the Democratic nomination are former Cincinnati Vice Mayor Jim Tarbell, Cincinnati City Councilman Cecil Thomas and Whitewater Township Trustee Hubert Brown. The Republican battle pits Cincinnati City Council stalwarts Leslie Ghiz and Chris Monzel.  

Opening Day Extravaganza Featuring Jake Speed & the Freddies

April 5 • Arnold's Bar and Grill

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 30, 2010
While the Opening Day parade has for decades now been a cool little "uniquely Cincinnati" event folks look forward to every year, there is a newer Opening Day tradition that's beginning to rival it in terms of sheer baseball pomp and pageantry. Local Folk and Americana experts Jake Speed & the Freddies host a baseball-themed show the morning before the Reds season's first pitch downtown at Arnold's, and this spring's version is bigger and better.  

Peeking into the Minds of Local Conservatives

1 Comment · Wednesday, March 10, 2010
CityBeat recently obtained a copy of an e-mail written by Brad Beckett — chief of staff to Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Monzel and a right-wing activist involved in anti-tax and anti-abortion causes — outlining the agenda of a secret conservative group called the Vanguard. We were fascinated by the wording the e-mail used about prominent public figures and what it might reveal about the members' outlook for the 2010 elections.  

Dems Willing to Sacrifice Local Seat for Congress

Just weeks after winning his third term on Cincinnati City Council, Cecil Thomas surprised most political observers by announcing he would seek the Democratic nomination to run for the Hamilton County Commission seat being vacated by David Pepper. Party Chair Tim Burke is favoring Thomas over previously announced Democratic candidate Jim Tarbell, hoping Thomas will help mobilize African-American voters to provide a much-needed boost for U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus (D-Price Hill).  

Greg Harris and 'Taking the Stage'

2 Comments · Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Harris was a standout on Cincinnati City Council last year for bravely challenging wasteful spending in the city’s police and fire departments. Unfortunately, the powerful police and firefighter unions then waged a highly misleading disinformation campaign against him, leading to Harris’ defeat at the polls in November.  

The 'Silly Season' Is Upon Us

Some British guy once started a great novel with the memorable turn of words, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." That phrase perfectly captures the feelings of most political reporters as autumn approaches, especially those in Greater Cincinnati.

The success of the Woodstock Festival 40 years ago prompted dreams of hundreds of other mythic Rock festivals throughout the United States. Including Cincinnati. As luck would have it, the city's first major outdoor Rock festival was scheduled for Sept. 6, 40 years ago this Sunday. Jim Tabrell, who organized it, joins other local musicians to recall the event and the times.

Back in the late 1960s, the Ludlow Garage was at the heart of the day's Woodstock-heavy music world.
