Fort Thomas Weekend News & Notes
1. The Highlands Middle School uniform is being eliminated after 10 years. It was the only school in the district that had the code. I would love to hear your thoughts on the change. I am a little mixed - great to not have to buy a set of clothes to be worn only to school but on the other hand there is something great about not having to deal with who is wearing the $100 pair of jeans, etc, etc.
2. Anyone else have kids that think the giant red balls in front of Target is from the hit ABC game show - Wipeout? They seem to be a real hit with kids entering and exiting the store and are a nice fun touch for a big box store.
3. A recent story on a settled lawsuit with Carespring sheds some unflattering light on Fort Thomas' own Highlandspring (a part of the Carespring network). The story mentions that a rating provided by the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gave Highlandspring their lowest rating, 1 of 5 stars.
