There’s something refreshing about watching a diverse group of people come together on a difficult issue, recognize their differences yet figure out where they agree on a course of action.

Journalists across Ohio watched that happen the last several months as we sat with hundreds of people who shared views on the addiction crisis and within two hours, in 11 different locations, arrive at similar solutions.

City of Miamisburg

Last week, officials approved an annexation agreement to add 41 acres from Miami Township to the city of Miamisburg. The land is on Miamisburg Springboro Road, just north of Medlar Road.

American Airlines says it has quote "stabilized" a computer system that failed at its Dayton-based affiliate carrier, causing the cancellation of 2,500 flights over the past week.

 The failure occurred in computers used to schedule crews for Dayton’s PSA Airlines, which is owned by American and operates many American Eagle regional flights.

A spokesperson said PSA stabilized the computer systems Tuesday morning, but that there would be some additional cancellations Wednesday as the airline repositioned planes and crews.
