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

A Hamilton County Common Pleas Court judge says the five Cincinnati City Council members who broke Ohio law by secretly texting each other should resign and return to taxpayers the $101,000 the city will pay for their transgressions.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin says he'll sign a law allowing Kentuckians 21 and older to carry concealed weapons without a license in areas currently allowed for permit holders.

And teacher protests close at least four school districts in Kentucky, as educators hold a "sick-out" over concerns about several bills being considered by the legislature.
