Fort Thomas News - Mid-week Update

A few big stories in Fort Thomas:

1. Cheryl McCafferty was back in the news in a big way today filing a motion for a retrial.  In the motion, her attorney throws her previous legal team, the judge, and Commonwealth's Attorney under the bus.  It should be interesting to see if this gets traction over the coming weeks and months.

2. Mio's opens on St Patty's Day.  They ask that you be patient as they work out the bugs of a new restaurant but given the recent great weather it should be a great time to hang out on the patio or enjoy college basketball on their 73'' TV.

3. It looks like they have finally installed playground equipment at Highland Park.  However, the installation is across the street from the shelters and benches where the old basketball court was.  Not exactly the safest idea given children will likely be running back and forth across the street to their parents.

4. This interesting story on a state proposal to change liquor licensing for those serving by the drink has Fort Thomas roots and if passed could pave the way for a wine bar to open in the Nevada Building.

  1. I emailed Dave Buerger and Ron Dill about the safety of the location of the new playground equipment at Highland Park. They stated that there would be benches, curbs, and signage installed soon. I just don't understand why it had to be moved in the first place. No matter how many signs or how vigilant we are as parents, inevitably there will still be kids running back and forth across a street with high traffic flow.
