News briefs

The Enquirer

LEBANON - The truth was revealed Wednesday about the purported opening of a horseburger restaurant.

Operators of a Warren County horse rescue center admitted that a flurry of ads touting "The Red Derby" was meant to raise awareness about the slaughtering of horses for human consumption and also to raise money for their cause.

Howard King, president of Second Chance Horse Rescue in Lebanon, said Second Chance cares for 34 horses and has placed 200 in three years.

Center a step closer

DEERFIELD TWP. - An indoor volleyball and basketball center along Butler-Warren Road is one step closer.

Trustees recently approved a zone change for 10 acres to allow general business. It is part of a larger site being eyed for a commercial recreational center.
