Brian Linnean, co-founder of The Wine Gallery and Cafe, said he has reached an agreement to sell the business along with the building and property for an undisclosed amount. The transaction is scheduled to close before the end of April.

“It’s been a great 12 years down there,” Linnean said.

He opened The Wine Gallery at the Cannery at East Third Street and Wayne Avenue in 2006, then moved the business to its current address at Main Street and Monument Avenue in January 2010 after buying the building at 5 W. Monument Ave. The Wine Gallery earlier this year won the Dayton.com “Best of 2017” category of “Best Wine Selection (Restaurant).”

Paul Pelnar, one of the new owners, said he and his partners will have more to say about their plans for the space in the coming weeks.

“We’re going to bring something a little different to downtown,” Pelnar said. “We’re enthusiastic about the things that are happening down there.”

“I was in my 30s when I started this, and I’m now in my 50s,” Linnean said. “It’s been too many hours.”

Plans are in the works for a large-scale wine sale, Linnean said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she and seven members of her family were kicked out of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia on Friday night.

TMZ first reported that the restaurant’s owner kicked out Sanders and her family out of “moral conviction.”

A waiter posted on Facebook that Sanders was in the restaurant for “a total of two minutes” before being asked to leave.

 

Sanders confirmed the incident on Twitter.

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” Sanders tweeted Saturday. “Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

 

Sanders’ father, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, tweeted his support, saying it was an act of “bigotry.”

 

The Red Hen’s Facebook and Yelp pages were bombarded with reviews from people from both sides.

While some praised the restaurant, many others said the owner was being “intolerant.”

This comes after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen bolted from a Washington, D.C. Mexican restaurant after protesters confronted her at her table -- with the blessing of the manager.

Students from the University of Akron and Ohio State University doing research on habitat for bees and other pollinators were out this week at Fairborn Cement, where a 30-acre field is dedicated to cultivating plants and attracting wildlife.

The research project is part of Ohio Pollinator Week. The Pollinator Stewardship Council partnered with the academic research team to conduct an insect and plant survey at the former mining land at Fairborn Cement.

STAY CONNECTED: Greene County News on Facebook

The habitat project began two years ago and was funded by a $24,000 Ohio Environmental Education Fund grant secured by Pollinator Stewardship Council with partners Fairborn Cement, Ohio State Beekeepers Association and Medina County Beekeepers Association.

This five-year project follows habitat development on properties from land preparation and seed installation to wildlife and plant population growth and diversity.

The students are part of Dr. Karen Goodell’s lab in the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at OSU and Dr. Randy Mitchell’s lab from The University of Akron. The researchers are part of the bumble bee study being conducted by Mitchell.

The Fairborn Cement habitat is one of three projects that were funded by the grant. In addition, three acres of pollinator habitat has been created at the Dayton Veterans Administration.

Instead of a grassy field, the habitat brings pollinators to the resident veterans’ vegetable gardens and provides diverse forage for area beekeepers’ honey bees.

There will be no local through access, but there will be local access to homes and businesses in the area, primarily from the Taylorsville Road side, said Clerk of Council Anthony Rodgers.

Traffic will be detoured to Brandt Pike.
