    Pinning ceremony honors new VA Medical Center director Jill Dietrich

    Newly appointed VA Medical Center Director Jill Dietrich's pinning ceremony was held this afternoon, marking the first time a woman has been sworn in to the leadership role in the VA’s 150 year history. 

    "I was just extremely happy to be joining the ranks of the senior executive service and come lead the Dayton VA Medical Center, " said Dietrich. 

    RELATED: New Dayton VA director will be first woman in 150-year history 

    Dietrich says she wants to create a high level of trust with the veterans and increase employee engagement. 

    "Listening sessions, and walking around talking to people and tours, the culture here is phenomenal. "People here care and they want to do what is best for the veterans," said Dietrich. 

    The Dayton VA has faced issues in the past, from a dental hygiene scandal in 2011 where a dentist was accused of not changing gloves between patients. 

    In 2015, a whistleblower brought attention to a patient backlog in the pulmonary clinic. 

    Officials say improvements have been made locally. 

    The VA is currently facing national issues like concerns over hiring enough qualified staff and providing timely patient access to healthcare. 

    The top of the VA is also facing problems.  

    President Donald Trump fired VA secretary David Shulkin last month, and has nominated White House doctor Navy Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson to take his place. 

    Dietrich says despite what's going on with the VA in Washington, the mission does not change at the local level here in Dayton.

    Layer Park opening could be delayed a few months

    Published: Thursday, April 19, 2018 @ 5:15 PM

    Layer Park opening could be delayed a few months

    The reopening of Layer Park in Miami Twp. could take a couple more months, despite the sign out front indicating "Park will open in Spring 2018." 

    The park has been shut down since January 2016 because of high levels of lead and arsenic found in the ground. 

    The lead and arsenic was initially found back in 2013, when the park was the site of a former shooting range.

    Those tests only came to light in early 2016, in what the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) admitted was a big mistake. 

    The federal EPA used more than $3 million from a super fund to clean up the park, costing the township nothing. 

    EPA work initially wrapped up in October, but the grassy areas still need more work, we've been told. 

    Dave Hill, a resident who lives next to the park, is glad the digging and hauling of dirt is over so he can regain some peace and quiet. 

    "Big semi trucks, hauling it out, all that earth moving equipment back there, steam shovels," Hill said. 

    Township contractors installed a new play set, basketball hoop, and planted 60 new trees. 

    The parking lot has also been redone. 

    Hill says the reopening can't come soon enough, and is hopeful the park will reopen soon so he can take his grand kids.
