Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Preserve Pick-Up

   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

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.
