All-Star Game mustaches staying on Cincinnati area sidewalks

CINCINNATI (AP) - More than a dozen massive mustache statues throughout Cincinnati and northern Kentucky are staying on sidewalks for two more weeks.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1O6V3fQ) officials with the Cincinnati Reds say the “‘Staches on Parade” statues will remain throughout the city until about July 28. The statues were spread around the area to celebrate the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which was held July 14 at Great American Ball Park.

Officials say each statue was funded by private donors and sponsors and will return to them at the end of July.

The pieces were inspired by the Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs, who had a handlebar mustache. Each statue is about 8 feet wide, 2 1/2 feet high and weighs about 850 pounds.

5 questions about Kentucky’s Medicaid expansion

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear expanded the state’s Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act. The federal government pays for 100 percent of the expansion until 2017, when state governments begin sharing the cost. Kentucky’s state legislature will debate how to pay for that beginning in January.

WHAT WERE THE ORIGINAL ENROLLMENT AND COST PROJECTIONS FOR KENTUCKY’S EXPANDED MEDICAID PROGRAM?

In 2013, one year before the start of Medicaid expansion, Kentucky officials estimated they would add 147,634 people to the state’s Medicaid program in the first year. By 2020, they predicted the state would have 187,898 new enrollees. By 2017, state officials estimated it would cost $33 million to pay for these people, plus another $74 million in 2018.
