Good plan for Washington Park
An ambitious new plan to redevelop the quarter-mile area around Cincinnati's Washington Park and Music Hall is all about getting the big pieces in the right place.

Voice of the Faithful: Seeking changes
Jim Muller, a physician who battled nuclear weapons, has turned his attention to the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. He is a founder and former president of Voice of the Faithful, one of several grassroots, lay organizations formed in the wake of the clergy sex abuse in the Church.

'Voices' hope to empower laity
One response to the clergy sexual abuse crisis, which is currently erupting in the Catholic Church in Cincinnati, has been the development of a national organization called Voice of the Faithful (VOTF). Currently there are more than 30,000 members and 181 affiliates across the United States.
