The director of the Dayton VA Medical Center in southwest Ohio says he'll retire in October after nearly six years of leading the facility, which serves about 40,000 veterans annually.

Glenn Costie also oversaw the VA medical facility in Cincinnati for part of 2016. He filled in as director of the Cincinnati medical center after the head of its Ohio-based regional network was ousted and the Cincinnati hospital's then-acting chief of staff was disciplined in connection with a probe of the hospital's management and veterans' care.

July 19, is the 200th day of the year, and now the tide of summer reaches as far north as it can go, and then starts to slip away back toward the Gulf of Mexico. The rate of the retreat varies with each year, but the balance always shifts during the seventh month. The day's length becomes one to two minutes shorter every twenty-four hours, and the countryside responds with changing color and sound. 

Large Solar Farms Proposed In Three Ohio Counties

A couple of large wind farms have cropped up in Ohio over the past couple of years, but the state still hasn’t seen a big development with solar power. That could change very soon with not one but three big solar farms in the works.

The three plans, which have been submitted for approval by state regulators, would generate between 125-150 megawatts each.

To get an idea of just how big this is, the largest solar generator right now is a 20 megawatt facility in Bowling Green.

The three plants would be in Brown, Hardin and Vinton counties.

Ohio police say one rider was knocked out of their wheelchair and another suffered cuts on their face after a bullet broke the window of a bus.

 Officials say the Regional Transit Authority bus was struck by gunfire Sunday evening in Dayton.

No one was struck by the bullet. Police believe the bus was the unintended target after the occupants of one car began shooting at another car.

The shooting is still under investigation.

Miami Valley Fair Housing investigated more than 70 Fannie Mae properties from 2010, 2012, and 2014.

Recent numbers show Montgomery County home values are continuing to recover after the Great Recession.

Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith says, while commercial property values remained stable with a less than 1 percent increase, residential values are up about 6 percent. 

He says the increase in home values is good news for the housing market.

“To talk about a four-and-a-half-percent increase, yes, this is definitely good news. It reflects on the community as a whole as far as value, the overall economy of the community," Keith says. 

Stats + Stories: Epidemic Trials and Tribulations

Jul 16, 2017

WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

It started with the death of one infant in late 2013. It was followed by the deaths of family members and health care workers and healers in 2014 and exploded into the awareness of the world as thousands were affected in 2014 and 2015. Almost 30-thousand people contracted the disease and more than ten thousand died in the recent Ebola virus outbreak that struck in Africa. How do we respond to such a crisis? How quickly can drugs and vaccines be developed, tested and distributed in the time of an emerging epidemic? Conducting clinical research studies in the context of emerging and potential epidemics is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories.

Welcome to WYSO Weekend, our weekly radio magazine! On today's program, we new information on the opioid epidemic - a report on the overabundance of painkillers on the market and in the pipeline. Also the second feature in our Just Ask series, which looks at Ohioans living with disabilities. See more program details below.
