Preserve Pick-Up

Written by

   CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials are beginning to focus on restoration as crews clean up remnants of thousands of gallons of oil that leaked into a nature preserve near Cincinnati.
   Traces of oil could be seen on rocks along an intermittent stream in the Oak Glen Nature Preserve as media were allowed to tour the site Monday for the first time since a pipeline leaked in mid-March.
   Federal officials estimated more than 20,000 gallons leaked. The parks agency that owns the preserve estimates that 80 to 90 percent of the oil has been removed from the site.
   Officials say they have not detected negative effects on local air and water quality because of the leak, though it affected some animals. About 31 small creatures have died, and officials say more were contaminated.

Cincinnati Eyeing RNC

Written by

CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials in Cincinnati say their bid for the 2016 Republican National Convention hinges on fixing up their arena and raising the $55 million in private money required.
   A site visit by Republican officials is scheduled for later this month for Cincinnati, which must spruce up U.S. Bank Arena and figure out how a host committee can raise the millions in private money.
   The others in the running - Cleveland, Dallas, Las Vegas, Kansas City and Denver - are all bigger cities that have made past pitches or even hosted political conventions.
   Convention experts, local leaders and political insiders tell The Cincinnati Enquirer raising the money is the biggest hurdle. All of it goes to the RNC for event costs - lighting, security, transportation and catering.

Ohio couple dies in small plane crash

Written by

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Officials say a married couple from Ohio died after their plane crashed in West Virginia. The small plane was on its way from Akron, Ohio, to Spartanburg, S.C., when it crashed about 5 p.m. Friday near Riverside in eastern Kanawha County.

Media outlets report that the National Transportation Safety Board on Saturday identified those killed as 50-year-old Lazarus Sommers and his 56-year-old wife, Maryann Sommers. The couple was from Millersburg, Ohio. The Charleston Gazette reports that the pilot of the Piper PA-32 had reportedly asked for help navigating around bad weather.

The newspaper said that West Virginia State Police responding to the crash needed about two hours to find the site with a helicopter.

BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol says no injuries were reported in the emergency landing of a single-engine plane on a golf course in southwest Ohio.

The patrol's Batavia post says the plane made the landing shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday on a fairway at the Stillmeadow Country Club in Clermont County. The patrol identified the two people on board as pilot Kenneth Howes and passenger and owner Karla Goodhouse, both of St. Clair, Illinois.

The patrol says its preliminary investigation indicates that engine failure after the plane took off from the Clermont County Airport forced the emergency landing. Investigators say the plane hit a sand bunker before coming to a stop and rolled partially on its side on the green. The Federal Aviation Administration responded to the scene south of Batavia.
