— The District Provisions retail market at 521 Wayne Ave. is gearing up to open incrementally.
The buildup toward opening will start this Sunday, Oct. 22, with a “sneak-peek” event that a spokesman said will be mostly by invitation. It will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The tentative plan is to then open components of Glasz Bleu Oven, Jack Luckey’s Oyster Saloon & Caviar Bar and Local Hero Butchery & Fare starting about two weeks later, initially with Thursday-through Sunday hours and slowly ramping up to six-day-a-week service (closed Mondays), a spokesman for Coin & Hammer LLC, the corporation that owns District Provision, told this news outlet.
Glasz Bleu Oven hosted a dry run or sorts in May, and provided the venue for former Rue Dumaine co-owner Anne Kearney’s special “pop-up” dining event earlier this month. It will serve Mediterranean specialties such as Schwarma and hummus, as well as other dishes prepared in a wood-fired oven. Jack Lukey’s will feature three or four oysters from different parts of the country each day as well as seasonal fresh seafood, the spokesman said.

The new retail ventures are located in the Dietz Block building, built in 1886 at Wayne Avenue and Jones Street, next door to Wheat Penny restaurant. The building years ago housed Norman Miller & Sons Interiors. Crafted & Cured, a growler-fill craft beer and cured meats bar, opened last spring in the southeast end of the building, along Jones Street.
The District Provisions spokesman said the market is “designed and built to supply the primary daily grocery needs (provisions) to the residents of the Oregon District, South Park, St. Anne’s Hill and the downtown Dayton commuting customers,” providing organic produce, local and humanely raised meats, local dairy products, craft beer, imported wines, and unique household goods.
The business does have seating, but will not have table service. “We’re not a sit-down dining place,” the spokesman said. “We’re retail.”
The offerings will change frequently. “There is not a written menu, because everything will depend on what we’ve got that day,” the spokesman said.

PASCO, Shelby County — UPDATE @9:04 p.m.
Deputies said search efforts for a 6-year-old boy who fell into Mosquito Creek have been to no avail and is now considered a recovery.
Rescue crews will reconvene on scene in the morning to continue looking for the boy, who has not been identified.
Shelby County Sheriff Sgt. Aaron Steinke said the search entailed boats in the water and a helicopter using infrared to search for body heat. He said due to the rough terrain and the strong current, search crews are being called off for the night.
Deputies will remain on scene through the night, and the road will remain closed. Other crews will return in the morning to continue the recovery effort.
The area was not under a flood warning from recent rains, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.
UPDATE @ 7:55 p.m.
A 6-year-old boy fell into the Great Miami River this evening while he was playing with a friend along the riverbank, Shelby County Sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Steinke said.
Crews were called around 5:45 p.m. to the river behind the Pasco trailer park in the 5000 block of state Route 29. Rescuers have boats in the water, and have every bridge covered south from Sidney to the Miami County line, the sergeant said.
Joining search efforts will be a helicopter from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, which has night-vision equipment to help search from above.
The recent rains and swollen river poses a challenge to rescue personnel, Steinke said.
UPDATE @ 6:35 p.m.
Additional rescue crews from area departments have been called to join the search along the banks for a young boy who may have been swept up in the swollen Great Miami River.
According to scanner traffic, the 6-year-old boy was last seen wearing a red shirt and dark pants.
Rescuers were called this evening to a mobile home park for a possible water rescue in the Great Miami River involving a child in the village of Pasco east of Sidney.
According to initial reports, a 6-year-old boy was wading but had not been seen in awhile. It is not confirmed that the boy has come to any harm.
The trailer park was in the 5800 block of Ohio 29, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

— Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines announced Saturday it is ending a discount for National Rifle Association members.
The move comes as some other businesses broke ties with the NRA amid debate over gun control in the wake of the Parkland school shooting in Florida earlier this month.
“Delta’s decision reflects the airline’s neutral status in the current national debate over gun control amid recent school shootings,” airline officials said Sunday in a statement. “Out of respect for our customers and employees on both sides, Delta has taken this action to refrain from entering this debate and focus on its business. Delta continues to support the 2nd Amendment.”
The move comes as some other businesses break ties with the NRA amid debate over gun control in the wake of the Parkland school shooting in Florida earlier this month.
Following is a list of some of the companies that have cut ties or distanced themselves from the NRA:
United Airlines -- United tweeted Saturday, "United is notifying the NRA that we will no longer offer a discounted rate to their annual meeting and we are asking that the NRA remove our information from their website."
Delta Air Lines -- Delta issued the following statement Saturday: "Delta is reaching out to the National Rifle Association to let it know we will be ending its contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from its website."
First National Bank of Omaha -- The bank announced that it would not renew a co-branded Visa credit-card with the NRA.
The Hertz Corp. -- The rental car company ended its discount program for NRA members.
MetLife Inc. -- The insurer terminated discounts that had been offered to NRA members on the NRA website
Enterprise Holdings Inc. -- The car rental company that also owns Alamo and National cut off discounts for NRA members.
Symantec Corp. -- The software company that makes Norton Antivirus technology ended its discount program with the NRA.
Chubb Ltd. -- The insurer announced it was ending participation in the NRA's gun-owner insurance program, though it provided notice three months ago.
Best Western -- The hotel chain told multiple social media users that it was no longer affiliated with the NRA, though it did not say when that decision was made.
Wyndham Hotels -- The hotel chain told social media users it is no longer affiliated with the NRA without specifying when that decision was made.
Starkey Hearing Technologies -- We have made the decision not to renew our discount program with the NRA. We will be asking them to remove our information from their website.
The NRA has released the following statement:
"The more than five million law-abiding members of the National Rifle Association have enjoyed discounts and cost-saving programs from many American corporations that have partnered with the NRA to expand member benefits.
"Since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, a number of companies have decided to sever their relationship with the NRA, in an effort to punish our members who are doctors, farmers, law enforcement officers, fire fighters, nurses, shop owners and school teachers that live in every American community. We are men and women who represent every American ethnic group, every one of the world’s religions and every form of political commitment.
"The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement.
"Despite that, some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice. In time, these brands will be replaced by others who recognize that patriotism and determined commitment to Constitutional freedoms are characteristics of a marketplace they very much want to serve.
