Wilberforce Monument Honors African-American Colonel

Federal officials think a national monument in southwest Ohio that honors the first African-American colonel in the U.S. Army will draw thousands of visitors each year.

The National Park Service celebrated the preservation of Col. Charles Young's home in a dedication ceremony this past week. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was among those attending.

President Barack Obama last month designated Young's home in Wilberforce as the 401st national park site. The Dayton Daily News reports that officials expect it to draw about 125,000 visitors a year.

Per-Capita Income On The Rise In Ohio

More good news for the Ohio economy: The state's per-capita income rose at one of the fastest rates in the nation last year.

That's according to an analysis by The Dayton Daily News, which says the statistic is a sign that the state's economy is recovering more quickly than that most of the country.

Per-capita personal income includes all earnings such as wages, dividends, interest income and rents. In Ohio, it rose by 1.7 percent to $39,289 between 2011 and 2012. That was a larger increase than all but two other states.

Furloughs Will Shut Ohio Air Force Wing on Fridays

Officials say a U.S. Air Force reserve wing that flies troops around the globe will start shutting down on Fridays when civilian furloughs begin at Ohio's largest military base.

That's the word at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, where around 13,000 civilian employees will be subject to furloughs because of defense budget cuts.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the Air Force Reserve 445th Airlift Wing relies on hundreds of civilian air reserve technicians, who serve double duty as reserve military personnel, to keep nine C-17 Globemaster III cargo jets flying.
