   CINCINNATI (AP) - The two Ohio cities still in contention to host the 2016 Republican National Convention will be visited in late April by party staff or members of a selection committee.
 
   Teams will visit Cincinnati on April 29 and Cleveland on April 30 for a more in-depth look at factors such as financing, convention venues, media workspace and hotels.
 
   The visits will help officials decide which of the cities on the short list get visits from the full RNC delegation before the convention site is chosen.
 
   Republican officials plan to pick the host city this summer, and Las Vegas has emerged as an early leading contender. The other cities in the running are Dallas, Denver and Kansas City, Mo.

Division on Death Penalty Expected

Written by

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court says divisions about the death penalty on a panel that spent more than two years studying capital punishment in the state were to be expected.
 
   Justice Maureen O'Connor said Tuesday diametrically opposed positions and divisive topics were a healthy part of the panel's work.
 
   The panel convened in 2011 by O'Connor finalized its recommendations last week and now awaits a dissenting report from prosecutors on the committee who disagreed with some proposals.
 
   Recommendations include reducing the number of crimes eligible for the death penalty and creating a statewide board that would have the final say over death penalty charges in the state.
 
   O'Connor says the committee's goal was a fair analysis of Ohio's 3-decade old capital punishment law.

Preserve Pick-Up

Written by

   CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials are beginning to focus on restoration as crews clean up remnants of thousands of gallons of oil that leaked into a nature preserve near Cincinnati.
 
   Traces of oil could be seen on rocks along an intermittent stream in the Oak Glen Nature Preserve as media were allowed to tour the site Monday for the first time since a pipeline leaked in mid-March.
 
   Federal officials estimated more than 20,000 gallons leaked. The parks agency that owns the preserve estimates that 80 to 90 percent of the oil has been removed from the site.
 
   Officials say they have not detected negative effects on local air and water quality because of the leak, though it affected some animals. About 31 small creatures have died, and officials say more were contaminated.

Cincinnati Eyeing RNC

Written by

CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials in Cincinnati say their bid for the 2016 Republican National Convention hinges on fixing up their arena and raising the $55 million in private money required.
 
   A site visit by Republican officials is scheduled for later this month for Cincinnati, which must spruce up U.S. Bank Arena and figure out how a host committee can raise the millions in private money.
 
   The others in the running - Cleveland, Dallas, Las Vegas, Kansas City and Denver - are all bigger cities that have made past pitches or even hosted political conventions.
 
   Convention experts, local leaders and political insiders tell The Cincinnati Enquirer raising the money is the biggest hurdle. All of it goes to the RNC for event costs - lighting, security, transportation and catering.
