It'’s difficult to remember, and hard to image now, the first Taste of Cincinnati in 1979 lasted one day, and attracted 5,000 people. Today, the nation’'s longest-running culinary arts festival is three days long and brings an estimated 500,000 people downtown to experience the food, drink, and entertainment of Cincinnati. Joining us for a rundown on this weekend’'s Taste of Cincinnati are Rich Walburg, communications director with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber; Chuck Huckabee from Market Street Grille, a 2015 multiple Best of Taste winner; and, comedian Josh Sneed, who is coordinator for Taste of Cincinnati's Taste of Comedy.

The heroin problem has reached epidemic levels, nationally as well as here in our region. Hamilton County saw more than 170 deaths due to drug poisonings last year. Several health and law enforcement agencies in the county recently joined together to form the Hamilton County Heroin Coalition.

The record numbers of deaths due to drug overdoses in many parts of the country, including Ohio, is the most tragic result of the heroin and opiate epidemic. But the social costs of drug abuse are also on a dramatic rise. Last year thousands of individuals were arrested just in Hamilton County alone on drug-related charges.

Voters in Kentucky head to the polls next Tuesday for the commonwealth’'s primary elections. There are four Republicans and two Democrats vying to be their party’'s candidate for governor in the November general election.
