Senior Voices: Barbara Hayden

May 30, 2018

This week on Senior Voices, Barbara Hayden recalls growing up on the West Side of Dayton in the 1950s and 60s. Barbara was one of six children, and while they lived and went to school in Dayton, every summer, their parents dropped them off in a small Southern town where both of Hayden’s grandmothers lived. She shared her story with Dayton Metro Library volunteer Susan Brenner.

A former Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office captain, accused of pepper-spraying a restrained inmate at the Montgomery County Jail in 2015, has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. The settlement is part of a plea deal that also bars the officer from rejoining the ranks of law enforcement.

Captain Judith Sealey was a sergeant when she used pepper spray on then-inmate Amber Swink. Swink was reportedly belligerent but fully restrained in a seven-point harness during the incident.

A video of the altercation released last year by Swink’s attorney drew national attention.

There is no official action scheduled in the Ohio House on Tuesday. Over the holiday weekend there was talk, but little change in the saga over who will be the Speaker till the end of the year.

Now, acting Speaker Kirk Schuring says he’s willing to stay on, while the representative with the most votes says "no deal."

Wright State University President Cheryl Schrader today announced the school is set to add millions of dollars to its cash reserves this year. But that may not be enough to keep the school off the state’s fiscal watch list.

In an email to campus this morning, Schrader said the school is projected to add $7.2M to its reserve fund this fiscal year. That’s $1.2M more than Wright State officials said would be needed to avoid state watch earlier this year.
