Tainted kerosene at another store

MAYS LICK - The list of stores believed to have sold kerosene tainted with gasoline has grown. Jones Mays Lick Market, 5593 U.S. 68 in Mays Lick, Ky., is the latest Marathon Ashland Petroleum outlet to sell the dangerous mixture, and brings to 14 the number of affected stores in the region. Marathon is asking everyone who purchased kerosene from any of the stores, between Dec. 1 and Jan. 4, to return the fuel and get free replacement.

East End targets honeysuckle

EAST END - East End residents want to see a cleaner neighborhood, fewer muddy streets and derelict cars that blight the neighborhood. But more than anything, some folks want to be rid of the honeysuckle that has taken over areas near Leblond Community Center. And that pits them against the Cincinnati Park Board, which says the vine, though pesky, must be removed gradually to control erosion along the Ohio River banks.


Watch for work crews north and southbound Interstate 75 between Sharon Road, Exit 15, and Tylersville Road, Exit 22. Various lanes restricted at Interstate 275. Through traffic should stay left; traffic exiting at 275 should stay right. Lane closures possible in off-peak hours.
