13-year-old boy running for governor of Vermont

The state that produced the oldest man ever to run for president now has the youngest person ever to run for governor.

>> Read more trending news

Bernie Sanders turned 75 two months before the 2016 presidential election. Ethan Sonneborn is 13 and an eighth-grader who is running for governor.

Now.

There is no minimum age to run for governor in Vermont, so Sonenborn is officially the youngest candidate for that office in state history, CNN reported.

Sonneborn is running as a Democrat and will face two other candidates in the party’s primary election in August. The winner will face incumbent Gov. Phil Scott, 59, a Republican.

The teen’s platform will focus on stricter gun control legislation an issue he has stressed since announcing his candidacy in 2017, CNN reported.

"I'll admit when I first heard about a 13-year-old running, I thought, 'Is this some kid from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, spoiled?' But that's not the case," Vermont Democratic Party Executive Director Conor Casey told CNN. "Ethan really did embrace the gun issue early on. He's representing younger people and he's been a good voice for them."

Sonneborn admitted that hunting is an important part of life in New England.

"It's a culture that I respect," he said. "But if it's making the decision between letting my friends have a good time at a firing range and them possibly being involved in a school shooting, I'm choosing legislation to protect them from that school shooting."

Sonneborn said he has met Scott, who told him his gubernatorial bid is "very cool," CNN reported.

The Pub at The Greene to host blowout party to celebrate ‘Best Fish & Chips’ award

The Pub Beavercreek has something to celebrate after a British brewery concluded the fish and chips served at the restaurant are the best in  America, and it will do just that this week − by serving half-price fish and chips. 

>> Restaurant at The Greene serves ‘Best Fish & Chips’ in America

Old Speckled Hen, an ale produced in Great Britain, sponsors the “Best Fish & Chips” competition every year, and this year, a sister restaurant of The Pub Beavercreek at The Greene tied for first place, according to this Old Speckled Hen release.

>> This meal-delivery service is now FREE for the next 2 weeks in several Dayton-area communities

To celebrate the award, The Pub Beavercreek will host a “Best Fish & Chips Party” from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 11 at its location at 39 Greene Blvd.

>> 3 new restaurants opening at The Greene

The Pub Beavercreek is one of 10 restaurants in “The Pub” chain. The Beavercreek’s sister restaurant in Pembroke Pines, Florida was the actual participant in the contest. The contest began last November with entries from more than 100 pubs across the country. It ended with a tie between The Pub and McMullan’s Pub in Las Vegas.

The dishes were judged on batter consistency, fish freshness, perfect chip texture and how well the dish complemented “Old Speckled Hen,” brewery officials said. Among five finalists, both The Pub and McMullan’s scored 105 out of 110 possible points to tie for first.

“We are thrilled to receive this honor from such an exceptional company like Old Speckled Hen,” Nick Sanders, owner of The Pub’s parent company, Tavern Restaurant Group, said in a release. “Our team works hard every day to bring an authentic British pub experience to every guest, and an award like this means we must be doing something right.”

Winter Storm: ‘Either Dayton or Cincinnati will get nailed’

A clipper-type system will push through southwest Ohio this weekend, but it’s too early to tell the storm’s track.

>> 5-Day Forecast

Snow is expected Saturday, with a good chance for accumulation.

“At this point it’s safe to assume areas southwest of Dayton will see the highest snowfall totals, but the exact amount is still in question”, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.

With this storm having a sharp gradient between a lot of snow and no snow, there’s still some tweaking needed over the next day or so. INITIAL REPORT:

A line of winter weather is expected to blast through southwest Ohio on Saturday, but it’s too early to say who will get the most punishing hit.

“Here’s the bottom line: It’s an intense system and someone is going to see a lot of snow, we just don’t know where it’s going yet,” said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell. “Right now, it looks like either Dayton or Cincinnati will get nailed.”

Elwell said it looks like there could be a “sharp cut-off” for who gets snow, and who doesn’t.

“It’s very possible that Cincinnati could get 6-plus inches of snow, and Dayton gets an inch or less. That’s how sharp we expect it to be,” Elwell said.

Right now, Oxford, Hamilton and Middletown appear to be in the direct track of the storm.

“We believe between Dayton and Cincinnati will see a lot of snow,” Elwell said. “But any small deviation in the track will play a huge role in who see’s what.”

Sunday is expected to be a pleasant end to the weekend with highs in the mid 40s and clear skies. Monday brings warm temperatures to start the new week with sunshine and highs in the low 50s.

How the winter storm will impact your daily drive, travel plans

spring snow storm brought a major impact to the morning commute, but the storm will still lead to travel implications throughout the day. 

“Be sure to keep this in mind when you head out the door,” said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

PHOTOS: Snowy first day of spring in the Miami Valley

>> Winter Weather Advisory issued; slick spots, reduced visibility possible 

Winter Weather Advisory will continue until 8 tonight. Warren and Butler counties are under a Winter Storm Warning, also until 8 p.m. 

THIS AFTERNOON: Snow showers will taper off, but winds may cause drifting across roadways. 

“Snow covered roads will be slick and blowing, as well as drifting snow will be a problem,” said Zontini.

>> Check school and business closings/delays

WIND: Wind gusts today will reach 25 to 35 mph. The winds will be coming from the north/northwest. Drivers on I-70 in either direction and those traveling north on I-75 should stay spaced out. The snow will also combine with the wind this morning, dropping visibility.

Driving in the snowy, icy or windy weather can make even a short trip more dangerous, Zontini said. It’s important to have a plan if you have to hit the roads during a winter storm.

Several departing and arriving flights at Dayton International Airport have been delayed or canceled this morning. Check your flight status here.

Here are some things to remember from NOAA:

>> WATCH: Driving in a winter storm? Here’s what to do

BEFORE YOU START DRIVING

If you can wait to start driving until conditions improve, do so.

If you have to head out, make sure someone knows where you are going, your phone is charged and you have a winter safety kit in your car.

>> RELATED: Winter Weather Awareness: What to have in your car kit

Clear your car completely of snow and ice. It will help improve your visibility and flying snow from your car  completely of snow and ice. It will help improve your visibility and flying snow from your car can be dangerous and hit other drivers.

ON THE ROAD

Go slow! Snowy roads may also be icy, and roads that appear wet may be slick.

If you skid, stay calm, take your foot off the gas, turn your wheel where you want your front to go and if you have anti-lock breaks, apply steady pressure.

Leave plenty of space between you and cars around you. 

If visibility becomes poor, try to pull over to a safe spot to wait it out. If you need to pull over on the highway, turn off your lights and use your parking break when stopped. This can help so another car won’t mistakenly follow your tail/break lights and hit you.

A fourth nor’easter in three weeks is set to hit New York and states in that area. The National Weather Service says New York City and its northern suburbs could get 12 to 16 inches of snow, the Associated Press reports.

Winter storm: Freezing rain, sleet and snow taking aim at region

Spring will officially arrive at 12:15 p.m. today, but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. A winter storm is taking aim on the Miami Valley and will bring a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow to the region starting this morning.

RELATED: Winter Weather Advisory in effect 

Precipitation is expected to develop early today across the far southern Miami Valley and spread northward toward I-70 by daybreak. Much of the precipitation will fall as rain, but as temperatures drop toward daybreak, a band of freezing rain is possible.

RELATED: Remember these things when driving in snow

The morning commute may not be too bad, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said. 

"The last few days of mild temperatures has helped push road surface temperatures well above freezing. That means that main roads should just be wet early Tuesday," he said. "However, elevated surfaces like cars, bridges and decks could become slippery."

SEE: WHIO Doppler 7 Interactive Radar

But the wintry weather won't be over yet. 

A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect as of 8 p.m. tonight and continue until 8 p.m. Wednesday. A break in the precipitation is expected midday today before returning in the evening. As temperatures drop after sunset, snow will become the primary form of precipitation and it will increase in coverage and intensity tonight, Elwell said.

"Snowfall amounts will generally range from 2 to 4 inches by mid-morning Wednesday," Elwell said. "But isolated higher amounts are possible.

Motorists should prepare for a slow morning commute Wednesday with improving conditions in the afternoon, he said.

Community celebrates the life of local teen who lost his battle with cancer 

Hundreds of people gathered Wednesday evening at Tecumseh High School in New Carlisle to celebrate the life of Collin Griffin, an eighth grader who recently lost his nearly 10 month battle with cancer.

Griffin was diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer that started behind his eyes and then spread to his lymph nodes and eventually other parts of his body, when he was just 13-years-old.

Throughout his battle with the disease, Griffin endured months of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments but always managed to keep a positive outlook on life, one quality of strength in which those that gathered to remember him admired. 

RELATED:Local teen battling cancer thankful this holiday

Endless lines of students, coaches, family and friends snaked through the hallways of Tecumseh High School to pay their respects, viewing areas filled with pictures and various memories of Collin.

The six-foot-one former football player brought laughter and hope to every life he touched, especially his family, who he cited in an interview last year as the people he wanted everyone to remember when looking back on his journey. 

“Tell your family you love 'em. That's who you're going to have in the end. And that's who's always going to be there for you no matter what. Even when it's dark out, the sun is shining somewhere”, said Griffin.

There will be guidance counselors on hand at the high school all week for grieving students. 

Credit card info targeted in data breach at Ohio Applebee’s restaurants

Multiple Applebee's restaurants across Ohio have been impacted by a data breach, according to a release from RMH Franchise Holdings.

Customers who used a credit card at dozens of locations between Dec. 6 and Jan. 2 could be victims of credit card fraud and identity theft, the company stated in a March 2 release.

Restaurants in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas were affected, including locations in Dayton, Xenia, Springboro, Kettering, West Chester, Springfield, Hamilton, Sidney, Troy and Centerville.

The data breach only impacted stores within the RMH network of restaurants and not the broader Applebee’s network, according to the release.

“RMH believes that unauthorized software placed on the point-of-sale system at certain RMH-owned and -operated Applebee’s restaurants was designed to capture payment card information and may have affected a limited number of purchases made at those locations,” the release states. “Certain guests’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes processed during limited time periods could have been affected.”

Local restaurants impacted

• 1991 Harner Drive, Xenia 

• 881 W Central Ave, Springboro 

• 105 N. Springboro Pike, 6242 Wilmington Pike, both in Dayton 

• 1725 Delco Park Drive, Kettering

1759 W. Main St., Troy

• Multiple Cincinnati area locations

RMH reports steps have been taken to contain the data breach and they are working with cyber security experts as part of the investigation.

Customers who dined at a local restaurant from Dec. 6 to Jan. 2 should review their credit card statements and notify the credit card company if there are any unauthorized charges.
