CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — A young black bear was spotted — again — in the eastern suburbs of Cincinnati, looking for a mate or perhaps just a way back home.
Wildlife officials believe the bear swam across the Ohio River from Kentucky. They say it’s probably 2 years old, and weighs 80 to 85 pounds. It’s been spotted in half a dozen neighborhoods east of the city since June 22.
There hadn’t been any sightings for several days, until Tuesday, when it showed up in the Eastgate area of Clermont County. Authorities temporarily shut down Clepper Park because a crowd of people had gathered trying to get a look at the bear.

Cleveland tops Dallas in bid to host RNC in 2016

WASHINGTON (AP) — Cleveland won the backing of a Republican National Committee panel on Tuesday, all but guaranteeing the GOP's 2016 presidential pick will accept the party's nomination in perennially hard-fought Ohio.

The Republicans' site selection committee backed Cleveland over Dallas, and the full 168-member RNC is expected to ratify the choice next month. The move signals the role Ohio — and its 18 electoral votes— plays in presidential campaigns.

"As goes Ohio, so goes the presidential race," said party Chairman Reince Priebus.

The RNC did not announce a start date for the convention but Priebus said that June 27 or July 18, 2016, are the two options under consideration.

Paying for the convention was the top criterion for the 12-member site selection committee. The previous two GOP conventions have sapped party dollars during election years, and Priebus insisted the host city not leave the central party picking up the tab, which is expected to be around $60 million.

In proposals and presentations to the party, Cleveland pledged to raise the tens of millions of dollars required to pay for the weeklong rally for the party faithful. A successful convention is a boon not just to the political party, but also to the local economy.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University is partnering with a southwest Ohio community college to position their students for careers in drone technology.
Officials at Ohio State and Dayton’s Sinclair Community College say the unmanned aerial systems field is expected to be a $90 billion industry by 2025. The technology is expected to create 100,000 new jobs in areas such as precision agriculture, public safety and mapping of pipelines or utility lines.
