WARREN COUNTY — Kings Island is implementing a chaperone policy following an uptick in “unruly and inappropriate behavior,” the park said in a press release.

Under this new policy, all guests ages 15 and younger must be accompanied by someone who is at least 21 years old. If they don’t have a chaperone they will not be able to enter the park after 4 p.m. If they are already inside, they will need a chaperone to be allowed to stay in the park for the evening.

According to the park, the chaperone must show a valid government-issued photo ID at the park entry. The rule also allows one chaperone per 10 guests. Children and teens who are caught not following the rule could be asked to leave the park. The rule applies to all Kings Island ticket and season pass holders, the park said.

GM/DMAX expansion in Brookville may siphon jobs from Moraine, Port Authority executive says

An expansion of the General Motors’ DMAX operation in Brookville may take jobs from Moraine, where DMAX has been located since the late 1990s, a Dayton-Montgomery County Port Authority official said Monday.

“I would anticipate that the majority of labor would move from Moraine up to this site if they complete it, but it has not been determined what will happen at this site,” said Joseph Geraghty, executive director of the Port Authority, referring to the DMAX Brookville plant. “They may still run production there. It’s still open, from what they have communicated to us.”

The project, if it happens, would involve 716 jobs new to Brookville, according to Port Authority documents.
