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.

An investigation over the death of Yellow Springs resident Paul E. Schenck is over. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine gave the report Tuesday morning. The report sheds light on the six hour standoff with police this summer that ended in Schenck's death, but leaves some questions unanswered.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation collected evidence over a three month period. BCI concluded that the 42-year-old Schenck was killed by a Greene County Sheriff's Deputy during the standoff and not by his own hand.
Clark County is getting a new amateur minor league baseball franchise. The team will be known as the Champion City Kings and will play a 60 game schedule starting in June of 2014, with 30 home games scheduled for Springfield's Carleton Davidson Stadium.
The Champion City name comes from the 1800s, when Springfield's Glessner Company manufactured Champion brand farm equipment.
