The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery's satellite operation in Springfield's Upper Valley Mall is up and running in a new, larger space. Mall officials are hoping the museum will lead to an economic revival.
Youngsters, Riley and Ben, are at the new Boonshoft Museum, admiring a popular exhibit with the sounds of whistles and bright lights glaring around them. Their grandmother, Joe Johnson, likes the fact that the new museum is at the Upper Valley mall, because she lives in Clark County.

Workers at a Walmart store in Dayton staged a one-day strike Monday to protest what they say are violations of their rights. Some employees of the company are accusing the retail giant of retaliating against them for speaking out about wages and hours.
Labor groups and city and state legislators joined Walmart employees in a crowd of about 70 outside the York Commons Shopping Center in Dayton.
Scott Stringer has been a Walmart employee for five years.
Aullwood Candle Dipping is on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 2:30. Candle dipping using beeswax creates special memories at Aullwood. The glow of a dipped candle is the perfect way to “warm up” a cold winter night.
An ongoing dispute between the founder of Springfield's Rocking Horse Community Health Center and its board of directors has reached a conclusion. An official statement from the board states that Dr. James Duffee is no longer employed there.
Duffee founded the center in 1999 to serve families with little or no health insurance, and he's been very popular with patients.
Recently CEO Dana Engle, who has been there since 2007, left Rocking Horse for another job. Duffee can't comment on his own termination, but he says the board is in a time of transition.
