  2. Dayton airport the top landing spot for new airline The Dayton International Airport has been identified as one of the top landing spots for a new airline. A new report from OAG, a provider of travel data and insight, found Dayton to be the largest unserved market north of Florida with 159 one-way travelers. Based on this finding, OAG pegged the Dayton airport as a prime location for Breeze Airways — a planned airline expected to begin operations later this year. The report indicated a specific route the new airline could employ, from the Orlando International Airport to the Dayton International Airport. Three other routes — from Jacksonville, Florida to Richmond, Virginia; Jacksonville to Buffalo, New York; and Miami to Buffalo — also were listed in the report.

  19. Feds clear way for Deters, attorney general to force out Dennard, prosecutor says Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters and Ohio Attorney General David Yost plan to try to suspend Cincinnati Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard from office, Deters said Sunday, and federal prosecutors have endorsed the idea. Dennard faces federal corruption charges after being arrested on Tuesday by the FBI. The U.S. attorney alleges that Dennard sold her council votes on a matter related to the Banks project in exchange for $15,000 from Tom Gabelman, the county’s legal adviser on the Banks who was cooperating with the FBI and wore a wire to record conversations with Dennard. Dennard has pleaded not guilty to the charges. “She can go the easy way or the hard way,” Deters said. “This is not Cincinnati. That’s not the way we are. The evidence here is overwhelming and she needs to get out.” More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2020/03/01/feds-clear-way-for-deters-attorney-general-to.html
