Curfew relaxed, may end today

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Mayor Charlie Luken said he hoped the city-wide curfew could be dropped today. He said he pushed back Sunday night's curfew from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. because of the peacefulness of the previous three nights and the Easter holiday.

        “We felt it could be done because people have responded really well,” said Mr. Luken.

        There were no reports of trouble on Cincinnati streets Sunday night — the fourth night under curfew.

        “Hopefully, we have seen the worst,” Mr. Luken said.
