Cincinnati leaders are taking aim at large investment companies they say are neglecting their property and tenants. This week Cincinnati sued one of the city’s largest landlords. VineBrook Homes is accused of intentionally avoiding maintenance on its rental properties. This comes days after the city sued an investment group that owns the Williamsburg Apartment complex. On Cincinnati Edition, we take a look at the history of violations.

Riots, assaults and escapes at Kentucky’s juvenile detention centers lead to calls for reform. Now Gov. Andy Beshear has announced plans to raise pay for youth workers at the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice. We’ll look at the issue of under-staffed facilities, the plan to provide “defensive equipment” and the concerns that raises.

Then, the Bengals and the Bills will face off this weekend for the first time since their Monday night game that got canceled after Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest. Sunday we'll see a long-winning streak come to an end for one of the teams. The question is, which one?

We’ll discuss those top stories and more on Cincinnati Edition.
