CINCINNATI -- An aging white lion given to the Cincinnati Zoo by performers Seigfried & Roy had to be euthanized because of age-related health issues. The zoo says Future - one of two male African white lions loaned permanently by Siegfried and Roy in 1998 - was put down Thursday. He was 17 years old and struggled to walk in recent days.
One person was killed and another was taken to the hospital last night after a hit-and-run crash on the South Side, police said.
Christmas might come early for central Ohioans traveling for the holidays, given low gas prices and predictions of mild weather. The AAA Auto Club is predicting the highest travel volume on record for Dec. 23 to Jan. 4. Nationwide, 98.6 million Americans are expected to travel at least 50 miles from home. That includes 3.8 million Ohioans, a 5 percent increase over the same period last holiday season.
Flu continues to sicken and hospitalize more Ohioans and has now led to two teenagersâ deaths in the state.
