Get to Know the Candidates: Q&A with John Muller, Running for City Council

This year, all six Fort Thomas City Council members, along with Mayor Mary Brown, face re-election. As part of FTM's efforts to keep you, the Fort Thomas electorate, informed and prepare you for the upcoming election season, the Q&A below is part of an ongoing FTM series spotlighting candidates in the 2014 elections. Incumbents and challengers are asked a nearly identical set of questions, then a second round of follow-up questions, if necessary. This week we spoke with John Muller, running for Fort Thomas City Council.

John Muller, a candidate for Fort Thomas City Council, is a businessman serving as a Nursing Home Administrator and is also a licensed Physical Therapist. John works for Carespring Healthcare Management as an executive vice president for the corporation which has retirement and nursing care facilities throughout the Tri-State. John lives with his family on Fischer Lane in Fort Thomas.

Buckle Up Country Music Festival Rocks the Cincinnati Riverfront

If you've been following along this year, you know I've been counting down the days until the area's first country music festival hit Yeatman's Cove and Sawyer Point on the banks of Cincinnati. I applaud the Buckle Up producers for stepping up to create this event. It was definitely welcomed by the tri-state's country music following.

Over the course of three days, the festival featured over 90 acts performing on seven stages. After experiencing a concert layout like this, I actually prefer it over Riverbend. There was not a bad seat in the house. No matter where you stood, you always had a great view of the stage and performers. I also loved the fact that you could avoid crazy long delays in the parking lot after the festival by leaving your car in Newport and walking across the bridge. 

I also enjoyed the variety in vendors. The food was far better than regular venues. With upscale options like Taste of Belgium, you were able to enjoy more than nachos and popcorn. 

Despite the continuous rain, I had a great time on Friday evening. Everyone rocked their ponchos and umbrellas. It seemed the rain was constant, but that didn't stop fans from hanging out all night.

Mama on a Budget: Fort Thomas Central Artisan Market

Artisan Market Tonight

Looking for something fun to do while anxiously awaiting the opening of 15 North next door (opening sometime this fall)?  Stop over to Fort Thomas Central for their second installment of their Artisan Market. 

KHSAA does many things well, can improve on other things

G. Michael Graham
Over the years, I’ve dealt with several athletic associations.

Out of all of them, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association does a fantastic job. Commissioner Julian Tackett and his staff in Lexington have always done a great job making things media-friendly and getting information in a timely manner.
