Many motorists think they're still on the avenue when it curves onto Memorial Parkway. "A lot of people don't realize it's The street where you live Fort Thomas Avenue (back here)," said Kay Macke, 32. "I didn't realize it came around until we moved here." Neighbor Barry Peper, 52, said, "Every time we give directions we have to be very specific." "It's a nice neighborhood," Macke said. "I like my yard, a big back yard. You get into new neighborhoods and there isn't that much back yard." Houses range from large traditional styles built in the 1940s and '50s like the Mackes' to the various styles of much older two-story houses like Peper's, which Peper said is "pushing 100." Peper and his wife, Carol, moved into their house 25 years ago. He said only one new house has been built on the street in their years there and that was 10 years ago. "The reason we moved to Fort Thomas was we had two children and liked the school district," Peper said. "It was a house we could afford." They stayed because "we don't like to move," Peper said. Fred Macke, 38, said there's a sense of neighborhood. "Most of the people who live on the street were born and raised here (in Fort Thomas). I was raised here. Kay was raised here, and we're staying here to raise our children." Susan Schroeder, 39, likes the street "except for the buses."

Indiana pays big bucks to out-of-state law firm 1FORT WAYNE, Ind.: The state, unsuccessfully fighting a lawsuit by Indiana nursing homes, already has paid a Washington, D.C., law firm about $1.4 million in legal fees, a report published Sunday said. The state lost the suit last month when a Hancock County judge ruled Indiana hasn't been paying nursing homes enough in Medicaid reimbursements to cover the cost of caring for poor patients in nursing homes. The judge ruled the state must pay as much as $125 million in damages to more than 400 nursing homes.

Wilkinson could not be reached for comment Sunday. The students occupied Hume Hall for almost two days before leaving about 1 1 p.m. Saturday. They were granted immunity by Wilkinson, Bakeman said.
