Throughout this season of Rediscovered Radio, we’ve heard voices from the 1960s and 70s, from the peace movement, Black Power and Native rights activists.  The early days of the Women’s Movement is well-represented in our collection too.   Producer Jocelyn Robinson gives us a sampling of the women’s voices that can be heard.

The 2018 elections are still months away, but the race to replace outgoing, two-term Gov. John Kasich already has more than a few candidates.

 

The Political landscape so far:

 

On the Democratic side, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley will go up against Sen. Joe Schiavoni, former Congresswoman Betty Sutton and former state representative Connie Pillich.

 

Dayton Public Schools is hosting a series of town hall meetings this month, in part to offer solutions to ongoing problems with district transportation. The first event is scheduled for May 10th.

  In a statement, the district said the meetings are being held to discuss “new academic offerings, transportation initiatives and extra-curricular activities.”

The announcement comes after months of complaints related to the district’s transportation system, with some parents saying buses are late or don’t come at all.

Everything happens so quickly between the end of March and the middle of May. Bare trees fill out, and the brown, silent earth comes completely alive.

The feelings that move over me in the wake of all those changes range from exhilaration and joy to disappointment to a sense of being overwhelmed, to a sense of sadness.

Montgomery County residents could soon have a chance to voice concerns about the Stony Hollow Landfill, south of Dayton. The state EPA has ordered landfill owners Waste Management to hold a public meeting to hear community complaints. The order also calls on the company to take more than a dozen corrective actions and pay $16,000 in fines.

Ohio EPA spokesperson Dina Pierce says the agency has received more than 150 complaints over the last year.

Paul Dickson is one of the most prolific writers I know. He has written over sixty books. His most recent one, "Leo Durocher - Baseball's Prodigal Son," is the biography of one of the most colorful and controversial baseball personalities of the 20th century.
