University of Dayton Republicans

President Donald Trump’s approval numbers vary depending on the pollster and their methodologies. But what is clear is that both Trump’s campaign and his first two months in office have been controversial. They’ve also been politically polarizing for many people across the country, including some young Republicans in the Miami Valley.

Wright State University’s incoming president plans to make financial sustainability one of her top priorities. The school’s board of trustees Monday voted unanimously to elect Dr. Cheryl B. Schrader as Wright State’s seventh president.

 

Schrader will be the first woman to hold the position in Wright State’s history. She currently serves as chancellor at Missouri University of Science and Technology.

 

After the vote, Schrader outlined her plans to students and faculty.

 

Thirty years ago the Scottish novelist Ian Rankin published the first book in his crime series that features the Edinburgh cop John Rebus. A few years ago Rankin tried to retire his ageing sleuth but Rebus and the many fans of these books would not go along with the plan. So even though Rebus continues to age in real time Rankin brought him back to work some cold cases.

When a thaw comes up from the Gulf, it always shatters my cold-weather cabin fever. Thaws crack and dismantle the dark cataract of winter across my vision. Thaws call up childhood and value longings, whisper some ancient truth.

I remember one year after a great thaw. I must have been only six or seven years old. I pulled on my rubber boots and went wading in a flooded vacant lot near our house. I looked for fish that could not possibly have been there, and I felt happy in the clear spring-like wetland.

Universities across the Miami Valley could feel the impact of President Donald Trump’s revised executive order on immigration and refugees. The president’s new order signed Monday temporarily suspends the processing of visa applications from Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Syria, and Libya for 90 days. Iraqi citizens are not affected by the revised order. The ban also does not apply to people who already hold valid visas.

At medical device maker NuVasive’s new West Carrollton facility, workers in safety glasses stand at rows of off-white machines that look kind of like giant baby incubators. The atmosphere is bright, airy and clean.
