Ex-Judges Rehired, Home Builders Adjust Strategies And More Top Stories This Week

May 14, 2021

On Cincinnati Edition's weekly news review:

Hamilton County voters sent eight new judges to the bench last November, but seven of the incumbents who lost their re-election bids are already back on the county's payroll.

Enquirer reporter Dan Horn joins us for that report. He also has details on the ex-Bethel Police chief who is suing the village, arguing that he was made a scapegoat during the fallout from Black Lives Matter protests there last year.

People looking for a home know how challenging it is out there right now with a limited inventory and listings that fly off the MLS swiftly. Now, two of the region's largest home builders are adjusting their strategies to keep up with demand.

Business Courier reporter Tom Demeropolis is with us to explain that, and to offer details on a new boutique hotel coming near FC Cincinnati's TQL Stadium.

On the local food scene, restaurants are still struggling to find workers; there is an effort afoot to establish a Little Asia landmark in town; and we hear about the new menu at TQL Stadium ahead of FC Cincinnati's first game there this weekend.

Enquirer reporter Keith Pandolfi is here with those stories.
