Forbes magazine ranks Cincinnati as one of the safest cities in the country. Or rather the metropolitian area. According to Chris Kemper of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber that means 3 states and 15 counties. But adds that it's still good news for the region.

Former Cincinnati Councilman Jim Tarbell says "They've finally got it right!" When asked should we take this study seriously, after all there have been others that say the exact opposite, Tarbell adds that the city has worked hard to make and see changes and both suburbs and city working together achieved this distinction, " This is the epitome of everybody working together this is one size fits all."

Cincinnati-Middletown ranked 9th overall among 40 cities.
