Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Westwood, who has made illegal immigration an issue in most of his election campaigns, is opposed to both of the immigration reform packages proposed recently - one by President Obama and another by a bipartisan group of eight U.S. senators.
Both plans lay out a "pathway to citizenship" for many of the 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the U.S.
On his blog, Chabot laid out his reasons for opposing both the Obama and Senate plans.
State Rep. Dennis Keene (D-Wilder) filed a bill in the Kentucky General Assembly Tuesday which he says will close a loophole that grants parental and visitation rights to convicted rapists if they seek those rights.
Kentucky is one of 34 states that has no protection for rape victims who become mothers as a result of the rape, Keene said.
Keene said he found out that Kentucky had no such law last summer when he read about a Massachusetts case of a 14-year-old rape victim dealing with this issue in the courts.
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay is going to open his first Ohio restaurant inside Horseshoe Cincinnati when the casino opens March 4. This will be the 14th Bobby's Burger Place. The 3,500 square foot restaurant will be located adjacent to the gaming floor with seating for about 90 people.
Bobby's Burger Place will join Jack Binion's Steak and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville as premium dining outlets at the $400 million casino.
Flay opened his first BBP on Long Island in 2008. He's also the owner and executive chef of Mesa Grill, Bobby Flay Steak and Bar Americain.
