WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Time to Get Over Opening Day Snub

I know I will lose any claim to being an actual Cincinnatian with this statement, but I’m not really bothered that Major League Baseball’s first pitch of the season wasn’t thrown in our city. In case you missed it — and it’s very possible you did — the 2012 MLB season began on March 28 in Japan.  

March 21-27: Worst Week Ever!

Americans like to multitask, as long as it doesn’t involve trying harder at their place of employment. That’s why driving and texting has become such a problem. The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety states that cellphone use while driving has caused 186 crashes so far this year.  

Greg Cook: ‘The Prince Who Never Became King’

Before Kenyon Martin’s leg snapped in Memphis and before Carson Palmer met Kimo von Oelhoffen, the injury that led to a million “what ifs” in Cincinnati was Greg Cook’s golden right shoulder. Cook, the former Bengal and Bearcat quarterback, died last week at the age of 65.

Cincinnati’s new police chief, James Craig, who began his job in August, already is making some welcome and long overdue changes. Ten supervisors and 40 officers are being transferred from the department’s numerous specialized units and put on street patrol.  

Voinovich and Deters

Maybe it's easier to stand up for principle when you're retiring in a few weeks, but the Republican U.S. senator from Cleveland has never been afraid to buck his party, when needed. Now George Voinovich is calling out skittish President Obama and dogmatic GOP lawmakers for their deal to extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone — including millionaires and billionaires — for the next two years.  

It's Not a Misprint: Vote for COAST Leader

Watching Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes squirm and contort the reasoning about his double-dipping plans during the past week has been supremely entertaining to anyone who's followed his political career closely. A former radio disc jockey, Rhodes has always had a flair for showmanship.  

Time for GOP to Clean Up Stadium Mess

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 28, 2010
It's time for Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to use his considerable influence and put the squeeze on Bengals owner Mike Brown. Hamilton County officials are desperately seeking to renegotiate the lease for Paul Brown Stadium because the county's stadium account is facing a $13.8 million deficit this year. The deficit will jump to $25 million in a few years and could cumulatively total more than $700 million by 2032, when the Bengals' lease expires. Unless the Bengals agree to some concessions, county commissioners will have to cut some services to residents, lay off some county workers or probably both to cover the shortfall.  

Tale of the Tape

0 Comments · Monday, March 29, 2010
April is the perfect time to assess Cincinnati's sports landscape. Not only does baseball begin in April, but the NFL draft takes place, leading to summer workouts and eventually training camp. College basketball practice begins during football season, then the regular season spans the winter months and brings us all the way back around to March Madness. So let's see where the city's five major sports programs stand.  

Portune's Lessons in Futility

It's difficult to resist the urge to tell Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune, "I told ya so." Portune made a big deal a few weeks ago of his teaming up with his colleague, County Commissioner Greg Hartmann, to devise a solution for the looming deficits in the county's stadium account. Much like President Obama at the national level, Portune was enamored of his bipartisan approach to the problem.  

Conservative Policies and Progressive Voices

As Mayor Mark Mallory and the new City Council are sworn in this week, the city says goodbye to two of its trusted progressive allies, David Crowley and Greg Harris. With the return of hard right-winger Charlie Winburn, council's conservative coalition now owns a 5-4 vote margin. It's now time for them to step up and offer a more inspiring plan than their current "No."
