Neighbors raise objections
Does 45 feet high sound like a tall building to you?
It does to some Dayton’s Bluff residents.
That’s roughly the height of a new senior housing complex likely to go up at the corner of East Seventh Street and Bates Avenue.
Raeann Ruth, founder of the Historic Mounds Theatre, is stepping down from her post as executive director. Ruth spent years with neighbors fixing up the old building, turning it from an eyesore into a place for live theater in Dayton’s Bluff. She’s shown painting the exterior back in 199 or 2000, wearing a pair of overalls as she’s known to do. (photo courtesy of Fred Kaphingst)
Theatre’s founder Raeann Ruth steps out
Fifteen years after she started, Raeann Ruth’s giving up her labor of love.
The 65-year-old is retiring from her post as executive director at the Historic Mounds Theatre, the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood theater she helped restore and re-instill as a neighborhood icon. The place, a vaudeville theater turned movie theater, is now a live performance theater.

Academia Cesar Chavez buying building
Just shy of 100 years as a parish, Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church will no longer be holding Mass on its campus at 1801 Lacrosse Ave.
The handsome, dark brick church building, built in 1947, is being sold along with the schoolhouse and the rectory. It’s the latest of East Side Roman Catholic churches to be sold off — in June 2014, St. John’s Catholic church was sold after the congregation was merged with St. Pascal Baylon.
