After a 10-day adventure up the Great Miami River — through mysterious, perilous, unknown wilderness — these pioneers reached their destination. The woman believed to be the first off the boat, Catherine Benham Van Cleve Thompson, is now recognized for being the great-great grandmother of Wilbur and Orville Wright.

Homicides in Cincinnati were up nearly 15 percent last year compared to 2016.

But police officials told city council's Law and Public Safety Committee Monday that the increase was not nearly as large as some nearby cities.

The number of homicides jumped from 62 to 71, according to Assistant Police Chiefs Paul Neudigate and Mike John. John showed the committee a slide with photos of all 71 homicide victims to make a point that they were not just numbers.
