Kentucky may have been won handily by Republican Mitt Romney in the general election, but Democrats from the Bluegrass State will be partying in Washington, D.C. Sunday to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama.
The Kentucky Democratic Party is hosting a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel on K Street in Washington, with Gov. Steve Beshear, Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and Kentucky Democratic Party chairman Dan Logsdon on hand.
Hamilton County Commissioners reorganized Monday with Chris Monzel assuming the presidency.
Monzel says he plans to stay the course laid out by fellow commissioner Greg Hartmann.
"Definitely public safety is the number one priority for Hamilton County. And it's something that's important and especially with the new Sheriff coming on board of what the public safety needs are. So that's number one, that's always been the number one priority to me in government," he says.
An endangered Brazilian ocelot kitten is the latest birth at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.
A release from the zoo says the kitten was born New Year's Eve after an artificial insemination from the zoo's resident male ocelot, "Monsieur." This birth represents the fifth pregnancy worldwide in ocelots resulting from artificial insemination.
Both the mother, Sala and the kitten are currently being housed in a quiet off-exhibit location but likely will be transferred to the ocelot exhibit in the Zoo’s Night Hunters building later this spring for public viewing.
