    Several staffers for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland are reportedly being quarantined after falling ill from the norovirus. Nearly a dozen California Republican staffers are being quarantined an hour outside of Cleveland in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, according to Stat News. The GOP staffers displayed symptoms of norovirus, but health officials are still running tests to confirm the cause of their illness. “We’ve got about 11 who have been sick over the last few days, and we’ve been out there every day and working with them to eliminate the spread [between] the resort and...

    SHARONVILLE, Ohio —Donald Trump's visit to Sharonville Wednesday evening will be his first appearance in the Greater Cincinnati area since he became the presumptive Republican nominee. On the heels of a major Democratic campaign appearance by Hillary Clinton and Sen. Elizabeth Warren at Union Terminal, Trump is bringing his unconventional campaign to the Cincinnati area to raise both money and momentum. And he’s bringing former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich with him. "We had a lot of work to do in a very short period of time to make that happen," Sharonville Mayor Kevin Hardman said.

  • What Harambe the gorilla tells us about our culture

    Over Memorial Day weekend, the internet has been exploding with comments, articles, and rants related to the death of Harambe, the 17-year-old silverback gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. While the entire situation was harrowing, terrifying, and tragic, what many of these vocalized opinions reveal about our culture is infinitely troubling. There’s not a legitimate debate over whether the little boy who crawled and fell into Harambe’s habitat would have died if the gorilla hadn’t been shot. CNN reported: Officials made the decision to shoot Harambe because the boy was in “imminent danger.” They feared a tranquilizer would take too long...

    On Saturday a four-year old boy fell into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. Sadly the gorilla, named Harambe, was shot and killed by zoo officials to save the life of the child, sparking outrage on social media. The most ludicrous of the objections came from those who actually believed the gorilla was killed because of racism. Conservative author and commentator Mark Dice uncovered some of the most outrageous tweets, including a slew that referred to the child as a “white boy” and one that called the killing an act of “white privilege.” As Dice pointed out in his...

    Police may bring criminal charges over a Cincinnati Zoo incident in which a gorilla was killed to rescue a 4-year-old boy who had fallen into its enclosure, a prosecutor said on Tuesday. The death of Harambe, a 450-pound (200-kg) gorilla, also prompted the animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation Now to file a negligence complaint on Tuesday against the zoo with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The group is seeking the maximum penalty of $10,000. The group said in its complaint letter that the child's ability to get past the barrier was proof the zoo was negligent and should be...

    Do you feel strongly about Harambe, the hapless gorilla executed by Cincinnati zoo to protect the life of the four-year old child Isaiah whose stupid, irresponsible parents allowed him to crawl into the gorilla’s pen?Well I do too. Especially when you realise – at least by some accounts – that the gorilla was actually trying to protect the child not kill it. But I don’t think in the outrage stakes any of us can quite compete with the angry black people in social media forums who have been blaming the incident on entrenched white privilege.

Hanna starts by talking about another gorilla-meets-child incident that’s being revisited today, an encounter in 1996 in which a three-year-old fell into the gorilla pen at a Chicago zoo — and was rescued by a female gorilla, who handed the child over to zookeepers.

It looked so beautiful and calm.” Harambe was killed after it dragged the 4-year-old boy who’d crawled through a barrier and fell into the Gorilla World enclosure.

But on Twitter, where media wars are often begun and settled, Walker's fellow scribes saw fit to pillory him for the question.

Cincinnati police on Sunday said the parents had not been charged, but that charges could eventually be sought by...

The boy was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Police and EMTs were called to the zoo at about 4 p.m. for reports that a gorilla was "slamming the child into the wall." Maynard said the boy crawled through a barrier and landed in the moat. He was walking and splashing. Harambe, a 17-year-old male gorilla weighing more than 400 pounds, picked up the boy, Maynard said....

    ... When it incorporated in 1947, this village, called Lincoln Heights, was the first primarily black self-governing community north of the Mason-Dixon line. (Today, the city has one of the highest concentrations of African American residents in the state of Ohio—according to the Census, 95.5 percent.) Lincoln Heights thrived for a while, producing poet Nikki Giovanni, songwriters the Isley Brothers (who wrote “Twist and Shout”), and scholar Carl Westmoreland, who now helps run the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Hundreds of residents worked at the nearby Wright Aeronautical Plant, manufacturing the B-29 bomber, and at a chemical plant a few...

    Editor's note: This story contains graphic content and will be disturbing to some readers. A 27-year-old man was left bloodied and unconscious after being brutally assaulted by an unruly mob in the streets of Cincinnati on Saturday night. Though the official police incident report referred to the July Fourth attack as “anti-white,” Capt. Mike Neville backed off the claim on Monday and said it’s not yet clear if race was a factor. Neville said the officer who filed the incident report felt the attack was racially motivated because the victim, Christopher McKnight, was beaten by a group of people from...
