HARRISON TWP. — The owner of the building that houses the former Boston’s Bistro & Pub said today he is in negotiations with a group of people interested in opening a new restaurant in the space.
“Nothing is finalized yet, but we’re getting close,” said Warren Sublette of suburban Cincinnati, who since 2007 has owned the property in the 7500 block of North Main Street (Ohio 48) in Harrison Twp. that housed Boston’s Bistro.
Sublette — who owned and operated a winery in Cincinnati in the late 1970s — is in the process of obtaining the Boston’s Bistro liquor license from David Boston, both men confirmed this morning.
Boston’s Bistro & Pub shut its doors July 10, 2016 after 35 years in business — the first quarter-century in downtown Dayton. The pub lost its lease and was forced to move from East Second and Jefferson streets in downtown Dayton to the Harrison Twp. location in 2005. Boston’s father had operated a Hungarian restaurant in the Harrison Twp. space in the 1950s and ’60s.
At the time of the bistro’s closure last summer, David Boston said there was a “strong possibility” the pub would reopen in a new location. And Boston told this news outlet this morning that he has not ruled out partnering with others to return to the business.

— Heavy rains made for tough driving conditions Saturday, but high water remains a concern through the weekend.
Lower lying and more rural roads are at a greater risk of flooding, such as Ohio 68 in Beavercreek, and Ohio 725, which is closed until further notice between Peniwit and Lower Bellbrook roads.
“We just want motorists to take a little extra time in planning where they want to go,” Sgt. Rod Murphy of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Anyone planning to head out this morning should be aware of potential flooding that could block your way.
If you see standing water in the roadway, turn around, even if the water appears shallow.
“It’s not worth the risk. It’s better to just safely turn around and find another way,” Murphy said.
On wet roadways another concern is hydroplaning, when tires lose their grip on the pavement. Motorists in that situation are advised to “just let off the gas, slow down, and try to get to a safe area,” Murphy said.
Late Saturday and early Sunday there were reports of flooding throughout the Miami Valley.
3:27 a.m.: High water reported at Wilson Road between Fenner Road and OH-55.
3:05 a.m.: South Valley at US-35 is shut-down due to high water.
1:45 a.m.: April Lane at New Germany Trebien Road and Beavery Valley Road closed.
12:00 a.m.: Upper Bellbrook Road reported having high water.
12:00 a.m.: High water on US-68 and North at Sutton Road caused a vehicle slide off and a police cruiser was damaged.
11:30 p.m.: Hebble Creek was out of its banks in Fairborn in Greene County

ATLANTA — Timothy Jerrell Cunningham called out of work sick at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 10 days ago and hasn’t been heard from since, police say.
His father, Terrell Cunningham, said something must be wrong.
When the 35-year-old’s parents arrived in Atlanta from Maryland, they used a spare key to enter the house and found Timothy’s car, keys, wallet and phone, WSB-TV reported.
"It's not the type of news you want to hear,” Terrell Cunningham said. “Your child is missing. Thirty-five years old, but always your child."
The father said his son is an accomplished man who graduated from Morehouse and earned a master’s degree and doctorate from Harvard University. As an epidemic intelligence officer, Timothy Cunningham has been deployed for public health emergencies, including superstorm Sandy, Ebola and Zika.
It’s unusual for him not to contact family, his father said.
"This is not normal,” Terrell Cunningham said. “This is definitely out of the ordinary."
Family and friends hope the missing man will be found safe.
Timothy Cunningham is 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.

ATLANTA — The family of a missing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention worker has partnered with Crime Stoppers to offer a reward for information in the case.
Timothy Cunningham, 35, was reported missing Feb. 16 after he called in sick to work Feb. 12 and has not been seen or heard from since, according to Atlanta police.
Police said Cunningham's parents went to his home and found his wallet along with several other belongings.
Police said Saturday that they have not been able to locate Cunningham, and they are asking for the public's help.
"This is an appeal to the public. Anyone who has seen Tim, or may know anything about his whereabouts, we're seeking your help in bringing Tim back safe to us," Cunningham's father, Terrel Cunningham, said.
Cunningham's family and Crime Stoppers are offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest and indictment in the case. Police said that at this time they do not have any evidence of foul play, but it is their practice to explore any and every possibility in a case such as this one.
