From Texts And Tweets To Kasich And GM: This Week's Top Stories

Nov 30, 2018

Cincinnati City Council members begin testifying before a grand jury looking into text messages that caused a political battle over whether or not to fire former City Manager Harry Black this spring. And a local conservative group sparks outrage with a tweet about the text investigation that some are calling racist.

Ohio Governor John Kasich says he'll talk to General Motors about its decision to shut down the assembly plant in Lordstown, which could put 1,500 people out of work. Kasich is also considering another run for president. It would be his third attempt.

And development plans for parking and the property adjacent to the new FC Cincinnati soccer stadium continue to evolve.
