This week on ReInvention Stories we meet Shane Anderson, owner of Ghostlight Coffee on Wayne Avenue in South Park.
Growing up, Anderson was a band kid. In high school, he dreamed of becoming a band director, which, he did. Anderson was a band director and music teacher for fourteen years. Most of that time was spent at Miami East High School and Vandalia-Butler High School. But he had another dream, of one day running a coffee shop. And he wanted to quit teaching before getting too burnt out.
School safety was the top topic for the state board of education, which hoped to learn about how to make buildings, staff and students more secure. But Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler reports, one idea that’s been making the rounds isn't likely to move forward
“Twenty-two seconds from the time the shooter shot the first bullet till the time he exited the school building. Twenty-two seconds.”
This week WYSO has reported on how hard the city of Dayton was hit when the mortgage crisis and great recession began more than five years ago. The resulting federal funds made available to cities like Dayton to stabilize neighborhoods, and how those funds are running out. In this week's Politics Ohio we continue our look at neighborhood stabilization; we spoke with Dayton City commissioner Matt Joseph about what other steps the city is taking to revitalize neighborhoods.
