A Cincinnati nun is being investigated for illegally casting an absentee ballot for another Sister of Charity who died before last November's election.
Sister Rose Marie Hewitt, a 78-year-old Sister of Charity, died Oct. 4 - the same day the Hamilton County Board of Elections mailed her absentee ballot and about 60,000 others to persons around the county who had requested them.
After hearing from residents opposed to using tolls to pay for the Brent Spence Bridge project, the Kenton County Fiscal Court has passed a resolution expressing its opposition as well. Tuesday night's vote was unanimous.
"Someone mentioned earlier, back in the '50's, we were able to build an interstate highway system. Now we can't even build one bridge that is of national significance; and certainly that ought to be a highest priority for our federal government," said Commissioner Jon Draud.
