The Cincinnati VA Hospital and its clinics are apparently in the clear when it comes to problematic wait times.

Director of Public Affairs Denise Kerr says, "The Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs notified our facility that we appropriately addressed flagged issues and were removed from the list of facilities that had issues related to the audit."

At one point last summer the Cincinnati VA had wait times of 45 days. That has now been reduced to 24 days for new primary care patients. In addition, there are new policies in place.

Only two Cincinnati council members publicly commented Wednesday on the city manager's deal with former Mahogany's restaurant owner Liz Rogers.  

Rogers is getting part of her debt with the city forgiven and a monthly repayment plan for the rest.  She will repay $100,000 to the city.   She closed Mahogany’s at The Banks last August after the landlord found her in default on her lease.
