Butler County bucks trend: Area schools remain polling places
 Students in Butler County’s 11 public school systems won’t have classes on Election Day Nov. 8, bucking a trend and allowing buildings to be used as polling places. The county is countering a regional trend of fewer schools being used as voting locations. School security is the main reason given by districts opting out. Butler...

Second Thoughts: A World Series day game at Wrigley would be awesome
 If your kids are like mine, they are too old to knock on doors asking for candy. But they do it anyway. I won’t stop them from acting goofy on Halloween as long as they promise to bring back Almond Joys and Kit Kats. Baseball is relevant right now with great storylines all over the Cubs-Indians World Series. America’s pastime...

Security concerns keeping voters out of schools
 Fewer schools are being used as polling places in the region, mostly because of security concerns. Some districts where schools are used as polling locations, including Kettering and New Lebanon, will close on Election Day as a safety precaution. Many schools lock their doors daily after the opening bell, which isn’t possible if there...

Second Thoughts: Cleveland, the center of the sports universe

9:20 PM Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016

I went to Elder-Beerman last week in search of long underwear for the prep football stretch run. Couldn’t find any and bought some men’s “leggings,” which are being marketed as the modern answer to long johns. My daughters talk about leggings, but I still made the purchase. Take 10 points off my man card. A lot of...
Second Thoughts: Big Ten’s newest additions add little to conference

7:35 PM Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016

College basketball practice has tipped off with Midnight Madness and other gimmicks. As a public service message, I’m here to notify you that UD and Wright State begin their seasons in 26 days. (Not against each other, silly). The Big Ten should stop pretending it was smart to add Rutgers and Maryland to the fold in 2014. The BIG is...
Iconic Dayton church could be turned into student housing
 The pending sale of South Park United Methodist Church has some neighbors worried that the iconic structure could be redeveloped into student apartments or other “undesirable” high-density uses. A limited liability company has a sales option for the church property — located at Brown Street and Stonemill Road — and...

Second Thoughts: Good to know that some things never change

10:02 PM Saturday, Oct. 08, 2016

Wonder what Notre Dame thinks about its decision to basically join the Atlantic Coast Conference in football. Instead of playing (and losing) Saturday in catfish conditions, the Irish could’ve scheduled a school like, say, Purdue. Like they did for years. Tough to feel sorry for ND. It’s never too early to talk about Ohio State-Michigan...

Second Thoughts: Bengals’ Super Bowl window slamming shut

8:02 PM Saturday, Oct. 01, 2016

Has anyone snapped a photo of one of these stupid clowns? We all have devices that will take video, connect to social media, cook dinner, you name it. But not one clown photo. This whole thing is as ridiculous as the mere thought of Urban Meyer coaching at LSU. The Bengals beat a bad Miami team on Thursday night. Mike Nugent had to ice his...
Second Thoughts: Reds fans brace for the blue invasion
 The Buckeyes were off Saturday, which means there are a bunch of pristine yards in Ohio today. Now it’s time to prepare for a 10-week run that will be capped with the Big Ten championship game on Dec. 3. The honey-do lists are about to get moldy. There’s good news on the Reds front today. The regular season ends in one week (yeah!)...

Veterans centers help in transition from military to college
 Angela Hall spent more than six years in the Marine Corps before enrolling at Wright State University, and the change of scenery was unsettling. “I wanted to be normal, but the first couple weeks I started to get overwhelmed because as much as you want to try to be normal, you’re not a traditional student,” said Hall, 27...

Second Thoughts: Dalton has shot to prove he’s a star against Steelers
 The girls were discussing football show music during College GameDay. Grace prefers the old version of “Comin’ to Your City.” Jill doesn’t mind the rap version, adding, “It’s better than that Sunday night girl with her butt hanging out.” Apparently she doesn’t approve of Carrie Underwood&rsquo...

Parking at a premium at Wright State
 The start of a new school year at Wright State generally includes parking issues, but the university says the problem has been exacerbated by more students driving their cars to school. There are about 17,000 students attending classes on WSU’s main campus. An annual $150 parking pass grants access to nearly 11,000 parking spots. WSU...
