WWII Memorial stamp debuts here

The Cincinnati Enquirer

As the National World War II Memorial is dedicated in Washington, D.C., a postage stamp will be unveiled at 11 a.m. today at Blue Ash Bicentennial Veterans Memorial Park, Cooper and Hunt roads. The 37-cent National World War II Memorial stamp will be on sale until 2 p.m.

Residents clean up after tornado

Some Brown County residents are cleaning up damage today after a tornado touched down four miles northwest of Mount Orab Thursday evening. One house "had about 20 percent to 30 percent of its roof peeled away," said Jeff Sites, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Wilmington. No one was injured. The tornado, which hit the area about 8:30 p.m., was classified as an F1 storm, the second weakest type of tornado with wind speeds of between 73 and 112 miles an hour, Sites said.
