Hamilton County Commissioners are moving forward with a plan to shore up the struggling stadium fund for another year.

Essentially the board is taking out an insurance policy to cover the bulk of the debt and fund what's left from county reserves. It'll cost about $300,000.

It’s a great time for sports fans in Cincinnati – the Reds are entrenched in the pennant race and the Bengals are gearing up for the start of a new season. With all that going on, time to bring longtime sports writer Chick Ludwig into The Front Row with Betsy Ross.

Bengals security will no longer pat fans down at the games. Instead they'll will be screened with a magnetic wand to detect any metal being brought into the stadium.

Attendees will have to have keys, phones and other metal items in their hands during this wand screening. The change is mandated by the NFL.

Bengals director of business development, Bob Bedinghaus says the wanding procedure was partially implemented during games near the end of the 2011 season.
