We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state

With overcrowding at the Hamilton County Justice Center soon to reach what Sheriff Jim Neil calls a "breaking point," the county considers a pre-jail diversion program for addicts and those suffering from mental illness. As the city and FC Cincinnati wait for Major League Soccer to make its expansion announcement, discussions continue over the location of a new stadium for the soccer team. And a former Cincinnati employee accuses City Manager Harry Black of threatening her job.

Joining us to discuss this week's top stories are Insider reporter Lisa Bernard-Kuhn and Insider Government and Political reporter Amanda Seitz; Cincinnati EnquirerGovernment reporter Jessie Balmert; and WVXU reporters Ann Thompson and Jay Hanselman.
