- Honda EV battery plant in Ohio?
(Statehouse News Bureau) - Honda and the Korean company LG are planning a $4 billion electric vehicle battery making factory in the US, and there are strong indications that it may end up in Ohio.

- Dayton Food Bank Update
(WYSO) - Ohio food banks are struggling to keep up with supply shortages and rising food costs. The state has had over 275 federal food trucks canceled. They’re spending more with a limited budget. And donations have gone down. WYSO’s food reporter Alejandro Figueroa has that story.
- Dayton Mediation Response Unit
(WYSO) - Not every dispute needs a police officer. That’s why the City of Dayton introduced its 911 alternative response in May. Since then the Mediation Response Unit has taken more than 400 calls to de-escalate nonviolent situations. WYSO’s Garrett Reese spoke with the unit’s coordinator about how the group works.
