February 28, 1 985 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER METRO B-9 Lindners Help Norwood Buy Park Land NACII0 D0RIT0S 1 1 oz. REG. 209 SALE $ 1 39 SAVE 700 BY STEVE HOFFMAN . The Cincinnati Enquirer Contributions from Norwood natives Carl H. and Robert D. Lindner have assured Norwood's purchase of the 14-acre McCullough Estate. The Lindners donated $75,000 each to the city so It could buy the estate at Cypress Way and Indian Mound Ave. from J. Charles McCullough II, principal heir of the McCullough Seed Co. family. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources last year awarded a maximum $289,900 matching grant for up to half the purchase price so that the estate could be used as a nature preserve and park. The property has been appraised at $589,000. McCULLOUGH IS expected to make a partial donation of land as part of the sale that Rick Dettmer, Norwood community development director, called a bargain. Norwood City Council Tuesday night authorized, purchase of the property. Dettmer said the city should be able to use the property this summer. Since receiving the natural-resources grant, Norwood officials have sought local funding to meet their share. Last Friday, the Lindner brothers delivered their checks to Mayor Joseph E. Banker. , Anne McCullough, mother of J. Charles McCullough II, died in 1981 at the age of 90, ' asking in her will that Norwood be given an opportunity to buy the estate for park purposes. The land, which abuts Norwood, is part of the original 100 acres James Morrison McCullough settled on about 1850. J. Charles McCullough II, Anne's only child, Is his great-grandson. THE INTERNATIONAL McCullough seed business began in 1838, with much of its products coming from the family estate. The business closed in 1960. First built on the property was a farmhouse, later augmented by Italtanate elements and a colonial revival wing with a sweeping second-floor porch. - " J. Charles McCullough II, a retired businessman, has said his grandfather, J. Charles I, planted the cypress trees along Cypress Way which gave the street its name. State and local park experts urged the Department of Natural Resources to assist Norwood in acquiring the estate as a nature preserve. Norwood now has nine parks totaling 30 acres.

An experiment to relieve police of time-Jarring shift changes every 28 days Is being tried for the next year in Cincinnati's Police District 4. The new system, in which officers are permanently assigned to one of four shifts, was first suggested by a group of officers about three years ago, said Assistant Safety Director David Rager. "There was a mixed reaction to It," Rager said. "A lot of the older officers seemed to favor It, but some of the younger ones worried that their lack of seniority might get them stuck on second shift forever." SECOND SHIFT, from 3-11 p.m., Is often considered least desirable by officers with families, Rager said. "When they are home during the day, their kids are at school and when they get off after 11 p.m., their kids are asleep." Still, many others who favored permanent shifts claimed It was difficult to have to readjust their sleep and family life schedules every 28 days. ; A year ago, Chief Myron Leis-tler ordered a departmental committee to study a permanent shift proposal and survey all officers in the division. That committee reported back a few months ago that most officers were at least interested In the proposal, Rager said. . It was decided to Implement permanent shifts in a one-year pilot program In one of the city's five districts. Rager said District 4 was chosen because it represents about 28 of the city's population, with a cross section of socio-economic communities." The pilot program began Feb. 15. THE SYSTEM operates with four shifts, Rager said, 7 a.m.-3 p.m., 8 a.m.-4 p.m., 3-11 p.m., and 11 p.m.-7 a.m. The 129 uniformed officers In the district were asked to list their first three shift choices. The choices were then granted on the basis of seniority, he said. CmCEKTHATI, OH FLORENCE, Kx lrHjULkJ OUR NEW LOCATIONS n A OiWILLIAMS GOLD CIRCLE MALL V POOLE RD.
