The young man accused of plowing his car into counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, has local ties. The attack is spurring national conversation about hate groups, some of which are actively recruiting here in Ohio. Taxpayers have invested more than $135 million into the Banks development. Ten years later, there's still work to be done. All good things come to an end as FC Cincinnati proves in the Open Cup run.

This afternoon Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced he will not seek a third trial  for former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing in the shooting Death of Sam DuBose. Two previous trials on murder and manslaughter charges ended in hung juries, the most recent last month. In both trials the prosecution argued Tensing's actions were unjustified. The defense says Tensing feared for his life and shot to stop the threat.

This week the Cincinnati community reacted to the second mistrial in the case against Ray Tensing, and waits to hear if he will be put on trial a third time. And the Ohio legislature passed a $65 billion state budget. Governor John Kasich has until midnight Friday to sign the budget and make any vetoes.

Funeral services for Otto Warmbier were held yesterday and the jury in the Tensing trial is still in deliberation.

In March, 2014, Hamilton County Park rangers at the Oak Glen Nature Preserve discovered an underground pipeline running through the preserve had ruptured, releasing approximately 20,000 gallons of crude oil. Cleanup began almost immediately and most of the oil was recovered, but the preserve's habitat was severely damaged and restoration efforts are still underway.
