— 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.

MORAINE — Tons of trash dumped in a wooded area off Germantown Pike, which has caused an overpowering stench, is part of a Monday law enforcement raid at the property that led to one arrest.
A large law enforcement presence was at a Germantown Pike property all day.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies, a special weapons and tactics team and Regional Agencies Narcotics and Gun Enforcement task force members were on scene at a home in the 6700 block of Germantown Pike and deep into the woods of the property.
Deputies brought a semi and dumpster back into the woods. They were seen moving some of the trash around. They hauled away a backhoe as evidence.
Neighbors said deputies carried piles of items from that wooded area, as well as from a house and garage.
“They found stuff back there. They’ve carried out huge tubs, looked like it was really heavy. Big boxes of things. They carried out stuff in cloths, white cloths.”
Neighbors said the RANGE task force was ready to break down the home’s front door when one of them offered a key. They said they watched deputies carry out several guns, and then the task force did break a door to get into the garage.
One man was spotted handcuffed in back of a cruiser.
Logan R. Lucas, 23, was arrested at 2 p.m. during the raid in the 6700 block of Germantown Pike and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of drug possession, online jail records show. He has not been formally charged.
Deputies removed items from the home and deep in the woods behind the property, but so far have not said what led to the investigation.
Crews also removed two dogs along with their food and water bowls from the home, Jacobs said.

A man pleaded guilty in Clark County court to stealing quarters from a coin machine in New Carlisle, according to online court records.
Jeffrey Hale, 36, of Huber Heights, was charged in Clark County Municipal Court with tampering with a coin machine. He pleaded guilty to the charge and his sentence was not immediately clear.
Clark County deputies began their investigation when they responded to a laundromat in New Carlisle in reference to a theft.
“Upon arrival, the business owner advised he was reviewing his security camera from the weekend and observed a male using a metal wire to remove quarters from the coin machine inside the business,” the report says.
The deputy said he could not identify the man at the time, but did recognize a person with him.
A few days later deputies say they received a tip from an anonymous source who said the man was Hale.
“I located a social for Jeff and pulled up his BMV picture and was able to positively identify the suspect s Jeff Hale,” the affidavit says.
