Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton brought her campaign back to Ohio today with a stop at Cincinnati's Union Terminal.  

Some 26-hundred people packed the Museum Center rotunda to hear Hillary Clinton talk about her newly released economic plan. Maria Schade of Cincinnati especially likes Clinton's goal of making debt-free college available to everyone.

“I have two daughters, one who’s twelve and one who’s fifteen so, they’re heading in that direction. I was really excited about that,” She said. “I was also excited that she’s looking out for families.”

Update 3/24 at 1:52 p.m.:  The Butler County Juvenile Court tells WVXU that Prosecutor Mike Gmoser has filed a motion to not accept the waiver of appearance. Hancock is now scheduled to be arraigned Friday at 1 p.m.

Two more Madison school district students have been charged in connection with Monday's shooting in the Madison  Jr/Sr High School cafeteria which injured four people.

Dayton is getting a new minor league soccer team. After hinting at a move for several months, the Cincinnati Saints are making it official.

A release says the team will rebrand and play next year in Dayton in the National Premier Soccer League. A new name, logo, and playing venue are expected to be released later this month.

Just a week after Dayton announced it will offer paid parental leave to city employees, Cincinnati may be doing the same.

Mayor John Cranley is introducing a proposal that would allow employees to take up to six weeks of paid sick time following a birth or adoption.

UC plans to implement a program similar to the collaborative agreement that governs Cincinnati Police and community relations.

The University of Cincinnati will hire an outside firm to evaluate its police department. The comments of Chairman of the UC Board Tom Humes come after a suggestion made by Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters that the department be disbanded. 

"I respect what he says, but I think that our police department at the university has been a absolutely key and vital component of our university's safety and security," Humes said. 

 

A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted a University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing for murder in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose in a July 19 traffic stop.

The shooting was, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters said, the most “asinine” and “senseless” act he has ever seen a police officer commit.

“I’ve been doing this for over 30 years,’’ Deters said in a press conference early Wednesday afternoon at his office. “It was the purposeful killing of a person. That’s what makes it murder.”

All of this summer's rain isn't just ruining your outdoor plans—it's taking a toll on Ohio's $100 billion farming industry.

Ohio’s largest industry is taking a big hit thanks to this summer’s wet weather. Ohio Farm Bureau spokesman Joe Cornely says a lot of the state’s corn and soybean crops didn’t get planted in time, and those that did are getting drowned out.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with city, police and community leaders in Cincinnati Tuesday during the first stop on a multi-city tour discussing new and collaborative policing strategies.
