Saturday, September 21, 1991 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER MetroC-3 War rations for needy go quickly BY JIM CALHOUN The Cincinnati Enquirer Operators of Cincinnati's FreeStoreFoodBank hope donors won't stop giving because the agency is getting government leftovers from the Persian Gulf war. The food may be surplus to the military, but it is not nearly enough to feed the hungry, operators of the FreeStore in Over-the-Rhine said Friday. "It's a drop in the bucket, really," said Tom Budd, a FreeStore division manager. "Even though the gulf war is over, the war on poverty is still going on, and they didn't make enough food to feed that army." The FreeStoreFoodBank is one of 180 agencies around the country receiving nearly $4 million in military surplus from the General Services Administration. Commodities once destined for combat troops are being given away to Americans in what has been dubbed Operation Desert Share. In four shipments trucked to Cincinnati since July, the FreeStore has received at least 32 tons of food. The agency keeps about half for its own free-food program and gives the remainder to a network of other pantries in Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont and Hamilton counties even as far away as Dayton, Ohio. The latest shipment, 151A tons from a military depot in Memphis, Tenn., arrived Wednesday. "This stuff is going to be gone within a week. That's how fast this stuff moves. It'll be out to the pantries and it'll be gone," Budd said. He did not know when the agency would get its next shipment, or what those commodities would be. He has been told, however, to expect a delivery soon from a warship pulling into port in California. So far, the bulk has been canned goods: peas, carrots and corn. The FreeStore also has received orange juice, oatmeal cookie mix, raisins, dried milk, green peppers and "a little bit of everything else," Budd said. Aronoff unaware of delay on county buildin; BY DICK KIMMINS Enquirer Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS Ohio Senate President Stanley J. Aronoff said Friday that he did not know of any Voinovich administration decision to delay construction of a state and county office building in Cincinnati. Aronoff, R-Cincinnati, an influ ential Voinovich ally in the Ohio General Assembly, said, however, that if such a delay is under consideration, it might trigger problems with other items on Voinovich's legislative agenda. "It is especially surprising when I have been helping the administration on the Gateway Project and others of importance to northern Ohio," Aronoff said. The Gateway Project is a multi- mijlion-dollar sports complex proposed for downtown Cleveland where the American League Indians, and possibly the National Basketball Association Cavaliers, would play home games. The city of Cleveland is expected to seek $25 million from Voinovich and the legislature next year to subsidize the sports complex. Two Voinovich administration officials said Thursday they had become skeptical about putting a government building in Cincinnati. The project for years has been a priority of Aronoff's. Aronoff declined to comment on the administration officials' statements. Both officials spoke about the project only on condition that they not be identified. "I prefer not to comment on leaks from sources who refuse to identify themselves," Aronoff said. "But I must say that if leaks are being dribbled out, it is happening without the courtesy of talking with me or (legislative) members from Hamilton County." Aronoff also noted that the state has built office buildings in Toledo, Cleveland and Akron in addition to two major structures in Columbus. Doctor: Victim alive after attack Deputy coroner describes wounds in Tinch murder trial BY IRENE WRIGHT The Cincinnati Enquirer Phyllis Elam lived for a time after being stabbed or cut 23 times, a deputy coroner testified Friday in the aggravated murder trial of Warren Virgil Tinch. Tinch, 59, formerly of Franklin and Middletown, is accused of stabbing Elam and leaving her body in a wooded area off McLean Road southeast of Franklin in Warren County on Aug. 7, 1990. Dr. David M. Smith of the Montgomery County coroner's office testified before a three-judge panel in Warren Common Pleas Court that Elam, 52, suffered 11 cuts or stabs to the head and neck, and 12 to the torso. Both hands also had numerous "defense-type" cuts, Smith said. Death was caused by bleeding from the wounds. He declined to speculate how long she lived after being attacked, but said she had been dead 12-18 hours when the body was found Aug. 10. Witnesses said blood stains and Elam's handbag and wallet were found in Tinch's car when it was discovered by officers in April, 1991 at CincinnatiNorthern Kentucky Airport. Tinch, impassive when slides of Elam's body were shown, was described during testimony as a man who traveled to different states and used different names from Au gust, 1990 until his arrest in May in Louisville. Diane Goodlette of Goodlets-ville, Tenn., said Tinch drank heavily when he rented a room in her house from the fall of 1990 to February of this year. "I told him to straighten up and quit drowning himself in the bottle," Goodlette said. "He said, 'Yeah, but you never had to stab anyone.' " He is charged with three counts of aggravated murder with specifications of premeditation, robbery and kidnapping, which could lead to the death penalty.
