  Christmas, 1914 on the Western Front during World War I. Soldiers on both sides, barley surviving in amazingly harsh conditions, up to their knees in mud and water, enduring the disease and slaughter that was trench warfare. But spontaneously, in several places along the front lines, soldiers on both sides begin singing Christmas songs, then cautiously climb out of their trenches to meet in no-man'’s land, to exchange good wishes, cigarettes and other small gifts, declaring an unofficial break from the horrors of battle.

A little known building on Northern Kentucky University's campus is getting a major upgrade... but most people barely know the building exists at all.

Sitting atop a hill across from the school library, next to the honor's building, is a small log cabin. When you talk to students, however, almost no one know what the cabin is or where it came from.

Brian Hackett knows the building's secrets. He's the director of NKU's Public History Program.

NKU’s Theater Department has a full calendar of productions this school year, and sharing all those details with Jim Stump is the department’s assistant chair, Mike Hatton.

  It'’s an exciting time of year, here in town and all across the country as students are heading off to college. For many, this will be their first time being on their own. But mixed in with the excitement are some fears and concerns, for both students and parents. According to American College Testing (ACT), more than one out of four freshmen don'’t return to the same college for their sophomore year. Some transfer, some take a break, and many never return to school.

  Greater Cincinnati is home to many outstanding colleges and universities. They not only provide educational and cultural benefits, they also have a tremendous impact on our economy.

  You'’ve probably heard the saying, “"Nobody likes a lawyer, until they need one.”" Joke writers and comics like to say there are too many lawyers, and in some cities in the United States, that is now the case. But in many parts of the country, people in need of a lawyer can'’t find one. This imbalance is causing legal system delays in some areas, while making it difficult for lawyers to find work in others.
