p i y ai s.: TC Tuesday, July 12, 1994 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER MetroB3 OBITUARIES Bill Branhan 'loved to race9 speedboats Newtown man competed despite injuries BY TIM PENNINGTON Enquirer Contributor ' . Many thought Bill Branhan would never get behind the wheel of his power boat again after he crashed during a race two years ago, severely injuring his leg and breaking his jaw. But one month later, the Newtown man surprised everyone when he started racing again. - "He was still getting around with a cane, but yet he drove the boat," said Mr. Branhan's son, Jason, 20. "Dad just loved to race." Mr. Branhan, 48, was killed Sunday when the boat he was driving crashed while competing in the Steubenville Regatta on the Ohio River near the West Virginia border. .. Witnesses say Mr. Branhan appeared to lose control of his boat k f : J- in m liii.iii iiiiiiiiffiiia.-lli- I I. ill and bumped one of the nine other boats in the race. With Mr. Branhan slumped over the controls and the boat at full throttle, the craft hit the river bank and went airborne for about 20 yards before crashing into several trees, witnesses said. He was pronounced dead at St. John Medical Center in Steubenville. No one else was injured in the accident. His father started out racing cars at dirt tracks in Clermont County during the 1960s but switched to hydroplane boats in Branhan 1978, Jason Branhan said. "We raced about 12 times a year," Branhan said. "We won some regional championships in 1992 in the 2.5-litre division." The elder Branhan was the owner of a plumbing business in Newtown that bore his name and was the village's building inspector for several years. He was planning to open a restaurant in Newtown, the Main Street Cafe, at the site of a bar he recently purchased. Mr. Branhan told The Enquirer last month that he was having a hard time finding time to race while managing his plumbing and rental-property businesses. "I really love to race the boats," he said. "It's a great hobby for me. I race whenever I can." Other survivors include another son, Jeffrey of Mount Healthy; his parents, Thomas and Jane Branhan of Newtown; a sister, Laurie Young of Mount Washington; and a brother, Thomas Branhan of Los Angeles. Visitation will be 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Moore Funeral Home, 6708 Main St. in Newtown. The service will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Mount Moriah Cemetery in Clermont County. James F. Doherty enjoyed singing Retired postmaster liked barbershop style BY YOLANDA JAMES The Cincinnati Enquirer Even though James F. Doherty was bitten by dogs three times during his career as a mail carrier, he still loved his job, said his wife of 36 years. ;Mr. Doherty, a former postmaster and part-time singer, died Friday at Mercy Hospital Anderson. The New Richmond resident was 62. Mr. Doherty became a letter carrier in 1957, serving the Western Hills area. In 1971, he was promoted to postmaster in Amelia. ' He retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1988. For the next five years, he worked at the Cincinnati AAA Automobile Club downtown as a travel counselor. He retired earlier this year. His true love was singing, Mar- jorie Doherty said. In fact, on their first date, she recalled that Mr. Doherty, a tenor, invited her to a show in which he was singing. "He always sang to the kids at bedtime. . . . when we were in the car, he'd sing and he always took the whole family with him to barbershop conventions," where quartets would compete for national honors, she said. Mr. Doherty graduated from Elder High School in 1950 and enlisted in the Air Force in 1952. While stationed in Big Springs, Texas, he joined the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America. "We . . . were walking down the the street from a movie house one night and heard singing," said Mr. Doherty's friend and fellow singer, Jerry "Chick" Hale. The two men found the local chapter practicing in a home and joined. After returning home in 1954, Mr. Doherty became a charter member of the Western Hills Southern Gateway Chorus Chapter of the national group. The chapter often performed at area high schools to raise money for children's charities. He is also survived by three daughters, Deborah Gilpin of New Richmond, Jeanne Wyble of Long Beach, Calif., and Julie Doherty of Anderson Township; three sons, James of New Richmond, Robert of Bethel, and William of Newport; two brothers, Michael of White Oak and Terry of Delhi Township; and four grandchildren. Mass of Christian burial will be 10 a.m. today at St. Lawrence Church, 3680 Warsaw Ave. in Price Hill. Burial will be in (Old) St. Joseph Cemetery in Price Hill. Memorials can be made to the American Diabetes Association, 2805 W. McMicken Ave., Cincinnati 45225. Dead animals found at mall; man cited BY WILLIAM A. WEATHERS The Cincinnati Enquirer FOREST PARK A 25-year-old Springdale man was cited with three counts of animal cruelty Monday after 55 dead small animals, including spiders and lizards, were discovered in a , storage area at Forest Fair Mall. Chris Lutts, with whom mall officials had an agreement to ; store equipment but not animals in the mall space, was cited by the Hamilton County . Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), said Harold F. Dates, SPCA general manager. 1 : 1 . Dates said the charges are second-degree misdemeanors which carry a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $750 fine. SPCA officials were called to the mall about 9:30 p.m. Sunday by mall security after a rat attracted attention to the storage area, Dates said. An SPCA worker responded, and the smell of apparent dead animals prompted the agency to obtain a search warrant for the storage area, he said. When the search warrant was issued about 2 a.m. Monday, 120 animals were found, 55 of which were dead, Dates said. The dead animals included spiders, snakes, hermit crabs, lizards, frogs and birds, and a scorpion. The dead animals and those which were alive including gerbils, mice, rats, and a boa appeared to be dehydrated, Dates said. It appeared the animals had been neglected for a week or more, he said. Jay Botsch, mall director of marketing, said Lutts was planning to take over the operation of a pet store that had been in the mall for some time. The mall had an agreement that Lutts could store equipment in the space until mall officials found him a different location for the store, Botsch said. Mall officials were "quite upset he (Lutts) breached the contract" and have terminated it, Botsch said. Lutts has agreed to leave the space by the end of the week, he said. Abuse: Daughter says she lived in fear CONTINUED FROM PAGE Bl She did not go to police earlier because her father told her not to tell anyone, and that if she did, she would get into trouble, she said. "I didn't think anybody would believe me," the woman said. "He told me nobody would believe me. i He had a high reputation. He was considered (by) everyone as a friend. He did odd jobs for them. He was really polite." She said she decided to tell police what happened to her when the mother of the other children told her what happened to them. The mother of the 10-year-old boy and his sister said she was shocked when her child told her what happened. "I thought they were my friends. They were friendly neighbors, willing to do anything for you. Not people you would think would do something like that. . . . They seemed to be friendly, good-hearted people. They seemed to really get along with kids," the woman said. "I'm angry at myself for not knowing that this took place." The neighbor watched the woman's three children in the neighbor's three-bedroom mobile home in Harrison for more than two years, starting in 1991. The couples spent time together, going out to eat and grocery shopping. She said she suspected something was wrong with her son because the once-outgoing child withdrew and his high grades fell. She questioned him about what was wrong, but he wouldn't tell. She thought his behavior was caused by other family problems. She is hopeful her son and daughter will recover. She does not like to talk about what happened. "It's kind of hard for me to talk about it. I still think I'm in a nightmare." Lawyers: Defense wants more money CONTINUED FROM PAGE Bl on that," said Boss. "We shouldn't make money, but we shouldn't lose in excess of $20,000 worth of time," said Ker-ger. The lawyers said more money, perhaps more than $10,000, is needed to hire expert witnesses in areas such as forensics and to examine the credibility of eyewitnesses. "Look at the O.J. Simpson case," Boss said. "They have the proper resources to do research and determine if the state is playing fair. We're being denied the opportunity to do that." , But Cox maintains the law "does not require that Ohio taxpayers write the defendant's counsel a blank check." ; It will be easier to convince the court to provide money for their expenses than their time, said Christo Lassiter, an assistant criminal law professor at the University of Cincinnati. . "Supreme Court decisions say that both sides are supposed to have equal access to evidence and resources," Lassiter said. "The state has unlimited resources, but public defense counsel has limits on that." If the defense does not receive enough money to hire necessary expense witnesses, Sanders would have legitimate grounds for appeal if he is convicted, Lassiter said. Boss and Kerger will have a more difficult time convincing a judge to pay them more for the hours spent on the case, he said. "That will be met with a good deal more resistance," he said. "They usually make the defense counsel eat it as part of doing the case." Special Prosecutor Mark Piep-meier, and his assistants Thomas Longano and William Breyer, are paid $100 an hour for their work on Lucasville cases. Prosecutors handling riot-related trials are paid $60 an hour. Since taking over in May, 1993, prosecutors have spent $322,240.85, said Trish Colby, chief of legislation and community affairs for the office of criminal justice services. The prosecutors and defense lawyers are paid through Scioto County, which is reimbursed by the state through the office of criminal justice services. Cox, who likely will be named along with the state of Ohio and Scioto County in the lawsuit, said he authorized payment according to the indigent fee schedule in Scioto County. The county specifies that appointed defense lawyers be paid $30 an hour for out-of-court time and $40 an hour for in-court time. The schedule also sets fee caps depending on the charge. The cap for Sanders' three kidnapping and one assault charge is $2,250. "They contracted to represent the guy under the Scioto County fee schedule," Cox said. "I thought I was generous I gave them more than what Scioto County would have.' Death Notice Death Notices TT Death Notices ADRIEN Virginia G. of Loveland, wife of the tote Evan J.
