- Next weekend, Dayton will host its40thannual pride celebration with events running Friday through Sunday. To get the details on those events we spoke with Allison Cox – a board member with the Greater Dayton LGBT Center. We met at MJs on Jefferson – one of the event sponsors and also talked about how Dayton Pride has changed in the last 40 years.
- Every memorial day, a wreath is laid on the Veteran’s Plaza at the Ohio Statehouse during a ceremony that involves service members, families of those who have served, state leaders and Ohioans who want to honor those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles produced this sound portrait of the service that was held Friday.
Last Saturday night, the future of aviation came to Dayton – where manned flight was created. The Solar Impulse, an electrically powered aircraft which uses solar cells to generate its power, landed at Dayton International Airport on the latest leg of an attempt to circle the earth. Our aviation commentator Dan Patterson was there.
