Monday Hot Links



- A Fort Thomas firefighter was sent to the hospital for heat exhaustion after battling a house fire on Indiana Avenue just before 11 a.m.Crews with Fort Thomas, Bellevue, Newport and Southgate all responded to the fire.

The family had moved out of the home, so no one was at the home when the fire broke out. The home suffered major damage. A cause has not yet been determined.

Here are pictures, via an Enquirer slide show.

- 2002 Highlands graduate, Amanda Bardo and her fiance, won the James Free Diamond Dash this past weekend. Hundreds of couples set out on the streets of downtown Cincinnati on a cell phone scavenger hunt for a $15,000 diamond engagement ring.


Here's a video of a similar event they did in Houston:

- Three new vendors have been added to the Farmers' Market at River Road and South Fort Thomas Avenue in Tower Park. The additions boost the number of vendors at the market to 12 and the market still has room for three more vendors.
  • Petwants, a business that sells organic pet food and treats
  • Whitford Farms, a produce stand
  • A stand owned by Greg Gayle who sells locally made jars of honey and other honey items
- The lineup for the Merchants and Music festival is ready. Here it is:

4:00-4:45 Local artists, Tupelo Honey, will be performing. This duo is from Fort Thomas and heading to stardom! They have great harmonies and will offer just a taste of their repertoire.
5:00-6:45 The Rusty Griswolds were repeat their success from last year's event. The most popular band in Greater Cincinnati, they are real crowd-pleasers with their 80's music and enthusiasm.
7:00-8:45 G. Miles & The Hitmen return to the Fort Thomas stage. Their exciting rocking blues, complete with horns, guitars, and vocals wow the crowd each year.
And this year's headliner is The Fabulous Thunderbirds! This group was huge in the 1980's and still travels with folk like the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. We can't wait to see the show they bring to our town.
