Josh Wright aka Jay Dot Wright was born and raised on the west side of Dayton, Oh until he was about Four. From there he moved to Northland Village and at age Ten moved to the Eastside of Dayton. He grew up without a father, so he turned to the streets. His Mother tried to shelter him from the street lifestyle but he found his way into it early on. At age thirteen he made his first drug deal with cocaine.
He dove into the streets, everything from hittin’ licks to distribution everything that comes with that lifestyle. He found out he was having his first child at 19 and tried to get out the streets for a minute and work a 9-5, the first time he ever held a job. With the stress of bills, a child, and not getting along with the mother of his child he starting taking Xanax. Ten a day for a week, led him to committing a robbery and ending up with his first felonies as an adult. Two F1 Aggravated Robberies with two Gun Specifications, he served seven months in Montgomery County Jail and pled out to one F1 and did four years in Prison.
Stints in Lebanon Correctional Institution and Mansfield Corrections. He got released from prison and hit the streets again hustling. It took two parole sanctions to finally wake him up and realize he could go back to prison and leave his child. This day Jay Dot Wright has started a movement called #StopTheEpidemic against drug use to try and save lives and make up for his past. With his 7 year old, another daughter on the way and with the woman who’s been to the bottom with him he’s focused to change lives and save people and get his music and movement everywhere.

Forming from the ashes of a modestly successful amorphic studio machine, Dayton, Ohio’s Dark Backward assembled as four cogs in various stages of reinvention in 2008. With its primary objective consisting of everything and nothing expected of its well established lineage, the band fastidiously worked on material for its first studio release, Mute Memorials (2010).
After receiving positive reviews, international airplay, releasing several videos and doing some light touring under the Worst Case Scenario label, the group re-entered the studio to record EP2011 (2011). The release further widened the sonic parameters established by the previous offering.
In the summer of 2011, Dark Backward reverted back into writing mode while supporting its second release. The result was the 2013 release of the full-length Phrase & Fable (Waggletone/Worst Case Scenario) which found the band pushing its musical parameters even further apart while staying in touch with the members’ respective backgrounds.
The band wrote and recorded the five-song EP Tension/Release (Worst Case Scenario) over the latter part of 2014 on in to 2015, where it was released as a Pay What You Want Bandcamp exclusive to local acclaim. The band added Fred Vahlidiek on keys and noises for live performances during this time as well.
In 2016, health issues forced Nye to take an emeritus position with the group. Chuck Sirloin was tabbed to take over the reins on bass while Vahlidiek was added as a permanent member of the group as well.
Dark Backward have recently finished principal songwriting and are currently preparing to head back into the studio for their fifth album as of this release.

The Historic Huffman Area is a neighborhood just east of Downtown Dayton with approximately 1200 residents. The Historic Huffman Neighborhood Association, led by President Mike Square, is the governing body that organizes socials, spearheads neighborhood beautification efforts, and markets the neighborhoods to potential residents and investors, among many other projects. Huffman is on the National Register of Historic Places with 595 of our 600 structures having a historic designation. Huffman is home to a variety of businesses including The Spot, Taqueria Garcia Mobil, DK Effect, Laundramato, and many others.
William Huffman was a prominent community leader in Dayton in the late 1800’s. Huffman purchased an East Coast company and moved it to Dayton including many of the factory workers. This business would become the Davis Sewing Machine Co. and Huffy Bikes at the location of what we now call The Davis Linden Building. From the very beginning Huffman sought to build a neighborhood that was inclusive for everyone. This is evident in the architecture of homes from cottages to large scale Victorian homes, sometimes right next to each other. Thankfully that socio-economic and racial diversity has remained to this day with a wide variety of people calling Huffman home. Notable in the architectural history of Huffman are the Victorian homes on Linden that William built for his family, the oldest standing school building in Dayton (now home to apartments for seniors) and the two churches that are in Huffman, Linden Ave. Baptist that William had built and St. Paul United Methodist.
Past Year Highlights
- 3rd and Linden Market Committee successfully identify and work with local investor to purchase the former Midnight Market building at 3rd and Linden.
- Numerous families move into the neighborhood, continuing the population growth of the neighborhood, particularly with children.
- Housing market increases in the double digits

Ace Tucker Space Trucker is a serial science fiction comedy adventure podcast written, recorded, voiced, scored and edited by James R. Tramontana.
Ace Tucker is a man who was raised in outer space and taught how to be human by a Russian cyborg chimpanzee. Ace earns a living as a rock-and-roll roadie and cargo hauler for the greatest band in the galaxy, Mustache Supernova. His world is turned upside down the night he meets Elvis Presley, the very not-dead King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. When Ace saves Elvis from an alien assassin he must travel to Memphis, Tennessee to restore Presley’s health. But things are not what they seem at Elvis’s pastoral home, Graceland. There, Ace makes a discovery that has the power to shape the future (and potentially undo the past).

United Way of the Greater Dayton Area fights for the education, financial stability, and health of every person in our community. We accomplish this by forging partnerships, finding new solutions to old problems, mobilizing resources, and inspiring individuals to join the fight against a common foe: our community’s most daunting social issues.

In 1974, Dayton Community Chest took on the name of United Way, joining what would become the world’s largest privately funded nonprofit organization. In our first 100 years we invested more than $665 million dollars in our community. Most recently under the guidance of our President and CEO, Tom Maultsby UWGDA has shifted our community impact model, begun new partnerships, and re-imagined what it means for our local community to Give, Advocate, and Volunteer.
