An incubator for food trucks and other small vendors in Dayton is getting evicted by the city following a controversial decision last week, and an online petition has gathered hundreds of signatures of protest.
Synergy Incubators has been throwing food truck rallies downtown since July, and was preparing to open a kitchen space in the Oregon district for food trucks, caterers and bakers to share.
But after quite a bit of back and forth, the city decided not to renew the lease for the building at 200 S Jefferson.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force says it’s ready to move ahead with a planned 224,000 square foot addition that will house the museum’s Presidential Aircraft Gallery and other exhibits.
Turner Construction Co. of Washington, D.C. landed the $35.4 million dollar contract to build the new hangar at Wright-Patt, though the non-profit Air Force Museum Foundation is privately financing the expansion.

The State of Ohio and insurance industry advocates have launched an effort to urge veterans, students, and people changing careers to seek out insurance jobs. As baby-boomer employees begin to retire in droves, Ohio insurance companies expect to have 17,000 job openings in the next five years in all areas from claims to government relations.
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is expected to privatize more energy and utility operations as it tries to offset steep cuts in the federal defense budget.
The base has already asked for bids to privately manage two water plants on the base that pump more than three millions of gallons a day out of an underground aquifer.
Base spokesman Daryl Mayer tells the Dayton Daily News that the Defense Logistics Agency also has asked for bids to maintain the base infrastructure for waste water collection and natural gas distribution at the state's largest single-site employer.
