Hamilton County Commissioners want Cincinnati to change some language in the city's hiring policies for companies bidding on Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) construction projects.
The city wants all construction firms to have apprenticeship programs.
Groups like the Greater Cincinnati Building Construction Trades Council like the plan. However, some companies say it's not feasible for several reasons, including that apprentice programs for some specialized trades simply don't exist.
Under the plan, Anna Louise Inn residents will be allowed to stay at the current location for two years while a new space with larger living areas is completed. The Anna Louise Inn will keep the same name.
Not only does the Duke Energy Garden offer lush gardens, large trees, walking paths and granite seat walls, it has a great view of the Ohio River and Kentucky shoreline, which you can enjoy from family-sized porch swings. Dianne and David Rosenberg gave $250,000 to the Cincinnati Parks Foundation and Cincinnati Park Board to provide significant funding for the swings.
The new garden is located adjacent to, and east of, the park's Main Street Fountain and Plaza.
In order to comply with state rules, Cincinnati Public Schools says it has changed the way it reports when a student transfers from one school in the district to another.

That’s when the board will take up the issue of whether to refer more cases of alleged “voter anomalies” – that is the polite word they have been using for cases of alleged voter fraud – to the Hamilton County prosecutor.
