D-2 METRO THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Wednesday, May 15, 1985 Whole Town Empties Attics For Sale buyers because of the great number of sales available in a close geographic area." City officials have received a lot of telephone calls about arrangements for the super sale, but it's not yet known how many people will participate, according to City Manager Mel Ruder. The best way to find the sales, Ruder said, is to enter the city on Ohio 73 and then drive up and down the streets. "I'm sure garage sale lovers will be able to browse to their heart's content," he said. Residents can set up sales on their own property, but they must ask permission to use public or private property, Mclntyre said. He received a telephone call from a citizen asking when he could set up a stand on the bank parking lot. "We realize there could be some abuse, but we don't know what to expect," he said. Ruder said chamber officials will be reviewing the city-wide sale afterward to determine if it will be held in the future and what features could be added. Though monetary gain is often small from such sales, "selling things at yard sales represents a reaffirmation by others of the value which the items had for us at one time." There will be plenty of opportunities to reaffirm the value of used goods in Trenton over the weekend. The project aims at generating community spirit. Individual homeowners, groups and merchants are planning their own sales at various locations. "It's not like a festival, where a place is set aside for everyone to visit. People are setting up at their individual homes," Mclntyre said. HOURS FOR the Extravaganza, according to committee chairman Jack Allen, will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. While yard sales will be the order of the day, many merchants are chiming In with sidewalk sales. "It will give homeowners an opportunity to clean out their attics, garages and basements, and at the same time they can make some money," Allen said. "Chamber members hope the sale will attract numerous BY IRENE WRIGHT The Cincinnati Enquirer TRENTON, Ohio-They're giving a yard sale in Trenton this weekend. Location? All over town Just pick a street. At the Robert Mclntyre home on Brels-ford Drive, for Instance, camping tents, a barbecue grill and rug remnants are being spruced up in anticipation of the Great Trenton Yard Sale Extravaganza Saturday and Sunday. These are some of the items Mclntyre will offer for sale when he, other residents, city officials, merchants and students turn Trenton into a gigantic city-wide yard sale. "We're kind of gritting our teeth at the potential traffic problems, but this co-operative sale will be an experience," Mclntyre, a member of the Chamber of Commerce committee planning the event, said Tuesday. ACCORDING TO Dr. Robert Halliday, a psychologist at Wilmington College, yard, sales are popular in part because people like to know that others place monetary value on things they have collected over the years! Two Zimmer Suits Settled For $5 Million Reading Truck Driver Dies After Rig Overturns On 1-75 that CG&E owes Kaiser for work done at Zimmer. CG&E President William H. Dickhoner and 17 other company officers and directors also must pay CG&E more than $2 million. The officers are covered by liability insurance which will be used to pay the settlement, CG&E spokesman Bruce Stoecklin said. The money will go directly to the company, not to stockholders. NONE OF the attorneys for the defendants could be reached Tuesday for comment, but according to court records, Kaiser and the CG&E officers agreed to the settlement "without admitting and vigorously denying any lia bility (at Zimmer) ... to avoid the further expense and inconvenience" of litigation. The agreement resulted from lawsuits filed in 1982 and 1984 by Belle Efros and Eve Mar-kewich of New York, CG&E shareholders. The suits, later combined, sought $1.4 billion, the difference between how much Zimmer was expected to cost and the $1.7 billion plant in Moscow, Clermont County, actually cost. Zimmer's owners-CG&E, Columbus & Southern Ohio Electric and Dayton Power & Light plan to convert Zimmer, which had been proposed as a nuclear power station, to a coal-burning plant. by james f. Mccarty The Cincinnati Enquirer Cincinnati Gas & Electric's top officers and the primary contractor for the Zimmer nuclear power plant have agreed to a $5 million out-of-court settlement on suits filed by two CG&E shareholders. Any objections must be made by June 12 to U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel, who will hold a hearing July 2 to consider the fairness of the settlement. The agreement calls for Kaiser Engineers Inc. of Oakland, Calif., to pay CG&E $1.7 million and relinquish its claims to $1.2 million Truck driver Lowell S.

MANN, WHO originally requested that the file be made public, asked the city solicitor to determine if the city had a legal right to the file. He also threatened to use the power of subpoena to acquire the documents. "I don't know where to place the blame," said Councilwoman Sally Fellerhoff, "but it Is quite a mystery as to what and why." Councilman J. Kenneth Black-well, who last January cast the lone vote against using the power of eminent domain to appropriate property for the development, said it is time for council to reconsider. Council voted 8-1 in favor of eminent domain. "It seems to me that the council puts Itself at great risk," he said, unless it backs away from using eminent domain. BLACKWELL SAID Fountain Square West Associates, a Joint venture bidding on the project and owner of' the Elder-Beerman site, ought to be given a chance to present its plans to council without the burden of competition with other prospective developers. Four proposals for development of the block were unveiled Monday after Fountain Square West Associates filed suit In Hamilton County Common Pleas Court objecting to a closed-bidding procedure. Two of the proposals call for buildings that would be taller than the Carew Tower, the city's highest building. In the Galbreath proposal, the Turner Construction Co. names CBC director Roberts as a corporate reference. BY JOHN ECKBERG The Cincinnati Enquirer A Hamilton County Grand Jury is investigating allegations that files connected to a multi-million dollar development on Fountain Square were criminally removed from Cincinnati Business Committee offices. In a letter addressed to Cincinnati City Manager Sylvester Murray, William Tillinghast, co-chairman of the influential business committee, said the group was unable to deliver the documents to Council as requested. "The materials contained in the file are the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation by the Hamilton County prosecutor, the full scope of which is unknown," Tillinghast said. HAMILTON COUNTY Prosecutor Arthur Ney refused to tell Murray if there was an ongoing investigation. "He stated he could not even discuss what is before the grand Jury," Murray said. "I feel certain from personal knowledge that the CBC file theft case is actually before the grand jury now," Murray said. An official for the John W. Galbreath Co. one of the firms bidding for development rights to Fountain Square West admitted last week that a former employee recently turned In photocopied CBC documents and then resigned. Ronald Roberts, Cincinnati Business Committee executive director, has refused to return phone calls about the incident and could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
