Beginning today, WYSO brings you the second season of ReInvention Stories, profiles of Daytonians who are reinventing themselves and their communities. Last year, in season one, we heard stories from South Park Belmont, Twin Towers and Residence Park. This year we’ll visit Old North Dayton and Five Oaks – plus the western suburb of Trotwood.
We’ll find out how people are coping with ongoing changes in the local economy and learn about the dreams they have for themselves and their neighborhoods.
Gov. John Kasich's midterm budget was released today. Among the key proposals –
The Governor is calling for an 8.5 percent income tax cut for Ohioans - to bring the top rate to 4.66 percent by 2016. Kasich also proposed an increase in cigarette taxes - to $1.85 a pack. Similar increases would apply to other tobacco products and e-cigarettes.
