Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley presents the State of the City; major changes could be in store for city council over the next four years; a dispute with HUD over conditions at the Alms Hill Apartments could displace dozens of tenants; Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune identifies the county's infrastructure priorities; and Music Hall re-opens this weekend after a $143-million renovation.

I'm pleased to announce that classical music reporter Janelle Gelfand is bringing her "Janelle's Notes" arts blog to Cincinnati Public Radio before the grand reopening of Music Hall this weekend.

Gelfand, my long-time colleague and friend laid off by the Enquirer two weeks ago, is blogging for wguc.org here. She'll also comment about the arts and music scene on sister station WVXU-FM (91.7), starting with "Cincinnati Edition" at 1 p.m. this Friday (Oct. 6) about this weekend's opening of Music Hall after a $135-million renovation in the past year.

And then there were none.

Classical music reporter Janelle Gelfand was one of at least four Enquirer newsroom employees to lose their jobs Tuesday, the last of the Enquirer's arts writers.
