Starkoff's interest in ethical problems facing Western religions moved him to establish the Starkoff Institute of Ethics at Hebrew Union College in Clifton. An alumnus of Hebrew Union College, Mr. Starkoff gave his alma mater a $500,000 gift in 1987 to start the ethics program. It was a generous gift that reflected the personality of the Cleveland native, said Barry S. Kogan, director of the institute. "He was a very friendly and outgoing man and a very good listener who, after he got his fix on what the issues were, was very good at offering suggestions and solving problems. He was a real gentleman," Kogan said. Mr. Starkoff died Sunday at the Boca Raton Community Hospital in Boca Raton, Fla., of heart disease. He was 74. Although he spent much of his life in Florida, Mr. Starkoff had many ties to Cincinnati. He was a graduate of the University of Cincinnati. LINK, Ann A. Home, 9503 Kenwood Rd., Blue 10:00A.M.

BREAUX Trie Cincinnati Enquirer A Kentucky tavern owner, Herbert Boehmker, who thought nothing of working two jobs to give his family everything needed, died Friday of cancer at his Fort Wright home. Mr. Boehmker, 70, owned Herb & Thelma's Tavern which was started by his grandfather in 1939 in Covington. Boehmker retired in 1990, after working at the bar since 1963. The tavern was taken over by his son, Chip Boehmker. About two years ago, when Mr. Boehmker first became ill, his sons told him to rest and not worry because it was time for them to pay back all he done for them, said son Terry Boehmker. "He always worked two jobs to support us. He worked 16 hours a day. He wanted to make sure all of his kids graduated from high school and got their education. He put us all through Catholic schools. He helped me get through college." He was also thoughtful toward the community and patrons of his tavern at 718 Pike St., Covington, Terry Boehmker said. "He sponsored softball teams and would try to hold prices down. When other bars were raising their prices to a $1 a beer, he stayed at 70C.

If the commission, headed by Columbus attorney Albert Bell, agrees with Taft, it can issue a warning, levy fines or refer the BY DICK KIMMINS Enquirer Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS, Ohio The first public airing of evidence gathered by state investigators into allegedly illegal campaign contributions and money laundering by the state's two-year community colleges is scheduled to begin today before the Ohio Elections Commission. The five-member commission Trial opens today on when employees learned of risks three Democrats and two Re Ky. will add new game to lottery family THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOUISVILLE The Kentucky Lottery Corp. will introduce a twice-weekly mini-lotto game next month with a top prize of $100,000. The $100,000 jackpot is the highest non-Lotto cash prize the lottery has offered; the previous top cash payout was $20,000 on a $2 instant game. Players must correctly pick five of 35 numbers to win the $100,000. Lottery President Jim Hos-ker said the corporation would pay $100,000 to as many as 10 winners in each drawing. In the unlikely event that more than 10 people match the five numbers in a drawing, the winners will divide the $1 million jackpot pool. Winners will be paid after verifying tickets at lottery headquarters in Louisville. Cash Five is the first major new game since Kentucky joined Lotto America last January. The odds of matching five of 35 numbers are about 300,000-1 the best of any of the lottery's games, except for instant games or scratch- publicans will begin to look into the controversy at the urging of Secretary of State Robert A. I aft II. Taft, a Republican, completed matter to county prosecutors. Local prosecutors in Franklin and Highland counties already have the case, since state Auditor Thomas Ferguson forwarded his audit of the lobbying organization and two-year colleges to them weeks ago. Ferguson's referral, however, deals with potentially criminal matters while Taft's investigation involves allegedly civil violations of Ohio's election laws. And the commission can order stiff fines $1,000 a day for each day the alleged violations took place. Attorney General Lee Fisher, meanwhile, is caught in the middle of the controversy. His office represents the two-year colleges, the Elections Commission and Taft. On one hand, Fisher's office has acted on behalf of the two-year college presidents and asked the Elections Commission to dismiss the charges. Another division of Fisher's office is defending Taft's actions to pursue the case. "This sort of thing happens fairly frequently," said Leesa Brown, his own five-month investigation last month and concluded the Columbus-based lobbying arm of Ohio's 23 community colleges "know NLO ran Fernald for the U.S. Department of Energy from the start of construction in 1951 to 1985, the year that NLO attorneys say the clock began running on the statute of limitations for civil suits. NLO claims that limits on some workers' claims expired in 1987 and others in 1989. If the jury agrees with NLO on that point, then the workers' attorneys must prove that NLO concealed information about health risks. If the jury agrees with the workers on concealment, then the case can go to a second trial on its merits or NLO can settle. If the jury agrees with NLO that workers had all the information they needed, the case is over, barring appeal. The current contractor, Westinghouse Environmental Management Co. of Ohio, is not involved in the suit. ELIZABETH NEUS What did they know, and when did they know it? Those are the issues at stake in U.S. Federal Court today, when a $500 million class action suit filed by Fernald workers against their former contractor goes to trial. The suit, filed against NLO Inc. in 1990, asks for lifelong medical monitoring for the workers as well as compensation for lost income, decreased ability to get other jobs or insurance and emotional distress. The trial doesn't cover the merits of the case. Instead, it focuses on two legal points: When did the workers know or when should they have known that they could have been harmed by radiation exposure? And if they learned after the statute of limitations expired on their claims, was it because NLO hid the necessary information? Fernald CONTINUED FROM PAGE A-7 land Public Health Group battled the DOE for years, asking that worker health records be released to non-DOE scientists. Just last year, the Three Mile Island (TMI) group won the right to study the records. The records, which cover 300,000 workers including 6,000 from Fernald are thought to be the most complete set of data on low-level radiation effects in existence. Current radiation exposure standards are based on the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, whose one-time, high-level exposure is vastly different from the lower exposures received by plant workers. Fernald records released with little fanfare but right on schedule in May were caught in a change in the way DOE does its own health studies, TMI attorney Daniel Berger said. DOE transferred responsibility for health studies on its workers to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services after years of charges that its own studies on worker health which rarely found adverse health effects were biased in favor of proving that the plants were safe. Another study based on information from workers but designed to help Fernald-area residents is moving along a bit faster. Till and his team are attempting to find out just how much radiation escaped and how much Fernald residents might have received. They're focusing for now on the years 1960-62, years where they think good records were kept . Instead of relying on manage- Fisher s director ot communica tion. "A lot of times the state ends up fighting itself. "This could end up as the 'Sybil' of civil lawsuits," she added, refer ingly acted to circumvent political action committee reporting requirements and knowingly concealed the source of political contributions" from 1976 through 1989. The two-year colleges and their lobbying arm, the Ohio Technical and Community College Association (OTCCA), deny the charges in briefs filed with the commission. Taft alleges the two-year colleges diverted their own funds into the campaign coffers of Statehouse politicians by concealing them as "consulting fees" and "dues" channeled through OTCCA and its director at the time, Hal Roach. While executive director of OTCCA through 1989, Roach also operated a private lobbying company out of OTCCA offices in Columbus. Campaign contributions reported as coming from Roach actually were coming from the colleges, according to Taft. State legislators deny they knew the real source of the money, but two who received some of it, House Speaker Vernal Riffe and Senate President Stanley Aronoff, ring to a psychiatric case of multi ple personalities, made famous in a best-seller in the 1970s. Fisher has advised the two-year colleges to obtain private counsel off tickets. In Cash Five, players may pick their own numbers or let the lottery computer pick them randomly. The $1 tickets can be purchased up to 26 weeks in advance for upcoming drawings. Tickets will go on sale Oct. 5; the first Cash Five drawing will be Oct. 11. Thereafter, drawings will be every Tuesday and Friday. The odds of winning something on a Cash Five ticket are 7-1. Matching four numbers wins $100, matching three wins $10 and matching two wins a free Cash Five ticket. as well. to workers unless they were also Fernald-area residents; reconstructing doses in a factory area is difficult because of the close configuration of the buildings, he said. But eventually he hopes to have a computer model in place that will calculate the dose to an individual resident within a certain margin of error. That will come in a couple of years. "When the public and the DOE see what we've done, they'll understand what took us so long," Till said. "But they'll be satisfied." Ferguson's audit, which formed the basis for Taft's investigation, has not been released publicly and ment summaries of data, as an earlier version of the dose reconstruction did, he's going back to the data written by the worker on the foundry floor. "The worker on the floor probably did an honest job, and did the best he could," Till said. "If we can get back to the original records, we're all right. What we'll come up with will be different. I won't say it will be bigger or smaller, but it will be defensible." The study won't calculate doses mav remain confidential for months, according to Ferguson, Once it is made public, it will outline the total amount of money involved and the recipients of the funds.
