Ol' Lefthander To Be Honored With Mural

The Ol' Lefthander Joe Nuxhall will be honored with a mural this summer on the wall of the Clark's Sporting Goods building at 15 South B Street. Plans were unveiled to City Council this week for three murals, including one on the McDulin parking garage next to the Artspace Lofts, overlooking the new pocket park. The third mural will be located at 212 Main Street. The city's StreetSpark program says work on the murals should begin in May or June. The Nuxhall mural depicts a younger Joe pitching for the Cincinnati Reds next to an older Joe who broadcast Reds games on the radio. Nuxhall started his radio career on WMOH, calling Miami University athletic events.

Prosecutor Defends Handling of Retherford Case

(Hamilton)---Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser is defending his handling of the OVI case against State Representative Wes Retherford. Gmoser, who worked with Retherford on a bill to crack down on elder abuse, stood alongside the lawmaker during a news conference with Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine on April 2, 2015. (Pictured)

At least three Butler County GOP leaders have privately told WMOH Radio they believe Gmoser should have recused himself from the case, and appointed a special prosecutor because of his professional and personal contacts with Retherford and his family. Gmoser issued a press release shortly after Retherford's indictment on a misdemeanor OVI charge was announced. Gmoser says he saw to it that Retherford did not receive special treatment. Retherford could have been expelled from his seat in the house if he was convicted of the felony charge, which was dropped by the grand jury.

Retherford Indicted On Misdemeanor OVI Charge

Butler County State Representative Wes Retherford will not face a felony weapons charge in his OVI case. A Butler County Grand Jury has certified Retherford's case back to Area Two court, and has dropped the weapons charge. The Butler County Sheriffs Office says Retherford was arrested in the drive thru of the McDonalds in Liberty Township March 12th, where he was found passed out in his Chevy Silverado with a loaded gun in the vehicle.
