Known for its panoramic view of downtown Cincinnati, the Metropolitan Club is a renowned private business club that has brought together diverse members throughout the years. 

Seven venues in Covington will host the newly revived World Music Fest, a celebration of world cultures though music, dance, art and food, happening June 11.

One thing is certain - Covington residents will elect at least two new city commissioners this year. 

Incumbents Steve Frank and Chuck Eilerman are not running for re-election.

That has drawn a crowd of 10 Covington commission candidates who will be on the ballot in Tuesday's Kentucky primary.

Four candidates - including the incumbent  - are vying in Tuesday's primary election to become the mayor of Covington, a city, which, with about 41,000 residents, is by far the largest of Northern Kentucky's cities.

The top two finishers in Tuesday's primary will face off in the November election for a two-year term as mayor.  The mayor with four elected city commissioners set the city's agenda and direction.

These projects and more have been made possible by Nano Grants, small grants of $250 given out by The Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington. They are available to residents, students and workers for creative ideas that bring people together.
