The Dayton Children’s Hospital has announced a major expansion of its facilities in Springboro.

The hospital plans to spend nearly $50 million to more than double the size of its south suburban location to include a surgery center and emergency facilities.

Voters in Springboro have decided to change the course on the conservative policies in place at the Springboro School district. The school board has been at the center of controversy over the past several years.

A southwest Ohio man who unfurled a Confederate battle flag at a school board meeting says he was trying to make a point about history. Others say his move was offensive.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Sonny Thomas says his message was misinterpreted. He showed the flag at a recent Springboro board of education meeting in response to it backing off an earlier plan to offer a constitutional class with a religious theme. He says the flag means heritage to many people in the South and that he meant to educate and inform.
