Here is a list of upcoming community events this month, including new events that could become a part your family’s traditions.

    The complaints were about the timing of deductible updates and issues with claims primarily on the prescription side. Another complaint was Cincinnati doctors not being in the network. Magistrate Floyd Bowling said fiscal court knew the out-of-network issue from the beginning.

  • Ky. has contributed to Thanksgiving

    While the Fourth of July is understandably the most American holiday, Thanksgiving can at least lay claim to being the first.
