Dayton Neighbors Leery Over Sites Picked For Undocumented Children

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 20:28

DAYTON -- The city identified two potential sites the federal government could use to house undocumented children coming into the United States. The selections come after the feds said they may need help housing the children.

The first spot on Dayton's north side is the former Heidelberg plant on Deeds Avenue in an industrial area. It is vacant and sits right next to Kizer Elementary School. The other is the former Naval Reserve facility on North Gettysburg. It is also empty and the city owns it.

Neighbors in the Gettysburg area, many who didn't want to go on camera, have big concerns. Even though the feds would house, pay for and supervise the undocumented kids, what's to come of their neighborhood, they wonder?

"You know they're kids and I don't want to see kids displaced but still you've got the unknown moving into your neighborhood and you just don't know. You hear things on the news, you see people protesting everywhere. ... I'm not sure. I'm not crazy about the idea," said James E. Smith of Dayton.

So while Dayton city leaders wait for the feds to call, if they ever do, Congressman Mike turner is still working to tell President Barack Obama and his administration that Dayton is not in a position to take these kids. He has sent another letter reiterating that Mayor Nan Whaley does not have the resources or authority to make this decision for the region.

Sen. Sherrod Brown Wants Child Safety Caps on Liquid Nicotine

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 20:18

WASHINGTON DC -- Child safety lids already protect kids from bleach and pills, but now Senator Sherrod Brown wants the same type of lids on liquid nicotine, which is used in some electronic cigarettes.

Last year, there was a 300% increase in accidental poisonings from the liquid nicotine.  Besides the caps, Senator Brown says companies also need to stop marketing flavors of nicotine that appeal to children, like cotton candy and gummi bear.

"'They don't go to people my age, they don't go to people who are my daughters age in their 30's, they aim at 12 and 13 and 14 year olds and that's how they're marketing liquid nicotine and that's how they're marketing e-cigs''. Senator Sherrod Brown told us today during an interview.

Now the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics is asking for quick passage of Senator Brown's bill.
