The building has already been hoisted onto blocks in anticipation of the move.

North End Neighbors Protest NHX

Hamilton City Council heard from several residents of the North End, upset about two proposed routes for the North Hamilton Crossing project. Both routes would run thorugh the North End ball diamonds and into the neighborhood. Neighbors are concerned about being displaced by the project, which is meant to alleviate traffic from the Spooky Nook sports and event complex. The road would be similar to the Jim Blount Overpass and South Hamilton Crossing. Neighbors say they're also concerned about losing the ballfields, playgrounds, and splash pad. They also have enviromental concerns if the city builds a road over the Chem-Dyne superfund site. A public input meeting on the proposed routes will be held on January 23rd 5:30-7:30pm at Fairwood Elementary School, 281 North Fair Avenue.

The report says the number of workers unemployed in Ohio in November was 243,000, up from 242,000 in October. In November 2022, the labor force participation rate in Ohio was 61.3%, down from 61.5% in October 2022 and down from 61.5% in November 2021. 

Highway Extension Opens

The Butler County Engineer's Office says the Cox Road extension from the Butler Regional Highway is open in both directions as of 3:30am Wednesday, December 14th. The new configuration means the Liberty Way exit off eastbound State Route 129 is closed permanently. Motorists can access Liberty Way using the Cincinnati-Dayton Road exit, or by taking a right off the Cox Road roundabout. They can also access Liberty Way further east by taking Veterans Boulevard past the new COSTCO store. Engineer Greg Wilkens says the traffic signal at Cox Road and Liberty Way is undergoing changes to timing to help with the flow of traffic. The $32 million project should totally wrap up by spring.

accepted a similar position with the Springfield,

Missouri Convention and Visitor's Bureau. He has been with the Butler County agency at least 16 years.

Surgical Assistant Bill Passes House

Butler County State Representative Sara Carruthers (R-Hamilton) says she found it "a tad terrifying" when she learned surgical assistants do not need a license to perform their duties in Ohio. Carruthers and fellow representative Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) introduced House Bill 196, which will require those assisting with surgeries to be licenced by he State Medical Board. Under the bill, surgical assistants must renew their license every two years, undergoing continuing education in order to qualify for the license renewal. The bill passed the Ohio House 69-12 last week. 52nd District Representative Jennifer Gross voted against the legislation. The bill was introduced in the Ohio Senate Tuesday.
