UD Racks Up Large Number of Alcohol Violations

The University of Dayton says its high number of alcohol violations among students has more to do with aggressive enforcement than excessive drinking.

The Dayton Daily News reports that UD's more than 3,500 alcohol violations over a three-year period outpaced much larger Ohio schools.

The 8,000-student university's disciplinary referrals for drinking trailed only the much-larger Ohio State University among the state's colleges from 2009 to 2011, the period for which the latest data is available.

Wright-Patt Will Cut 40 Percent of Budget

The commander of Ohio largest military installation says federal budget cuts will force a 40-percent reduction in the budget - but no jobs are expected to be lost.

Col. Cassie B. Barlow, commander of the 88th Air Base Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, says officials will have to "dig deep" to find the cuts.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the base's 13,000 civilian employees are due to receive 14-day furlough notices beginning early next week. Barlow said the unpaid time off work will begin in June.

Cuts Mean No Military Presence at Ohio Air Show

Federal budget cuts mean there will be no military presence at the popular Dayton Air Show for the first time in the event's nearly four-decade history.

Military cuts already caused the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds to pull out of the show. Now the air show says there will be no other military fighter demonstrations or displays at all.

The Dayton Daily News reports there won't even be any of the typical personnel support from nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at the June 22-23 event.

Air Show General Manager Brenda Kerfoot called it "unprecedented."

Police Fight Drugs Near Dayton Mall

Local police say some shopping going on at a major retail center isn't for clothes or appliances.

A recent drug bust at an auto detail shop was the latest in a series of actions near the Dayton Mall. The Dayton Daily News reports several arrests of suspected drug dealers in the past month.

A 20-year-old man was fatally shot April 4 at a beverage drive-thru near the mall amid an FBI drug investigation.

Authorities say the heavily traveled area with many parking lots gives drug dealers opportunities for quick, car-to-car sales.
