INSIDE FILE 'Nice doggie' or else Hamilton police dogs have more "bite" than bark for those who tease and torment them. Hamilton City Council this week passed an ordinance outlining fines and jail terms for persons convicted of teasing, taunting, injuring or killing any of the city's three police dogs. Anyone caught pulling the tail of a four-legged member of the force or otherwise provoking one of the dogs could face a fine of up to $500 and 60 days in jail. Injuring or killing the animal could result in a fine of $1 ,000 and 1 80 days in jail. City lawmakers said time and money are invested in training the dogs, and they confront the same dangers as the officers. The penalties apply whether the dog is engaged in law enforcement activity or between assignments. The force's complement of canines are Rowdy, Max and Ace. Reporter: John R. Clark UNITED WAY PEOPLE Woman found dead in hotel; man who rented room sought Budget chief says economy is improving President Bush's budget director, Richard Darman, said Sunday that it looks as if the U.S. economy is recovering from the recession.

He also wrote How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which was made into a movie for television. Drug charges dropped Drug charges against four Bond Hill Elementary School girls were dropped on Monday. Lab tests showed that the girls did not have real crack cocaine. The girls who are 11 and 12 years old were arrested on Sept. 17 after they told their friends they had crack. Two of the girls were expelled from school for 11 days. A third girl was expelled for five days. The fourth girl never brought the fake crack to school. The announcement from Cincinnati Public Schools called the disciplinary actions expulsions rather than suspensions. The girls also agreed to go to anti-drug classes. Schools face changes Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent J. Michael Brandt told school-board members he will create five teams to work on the changes suggested by the Buenger Commission. The commission is a group of businessmen who have suggested ways to fix problems in the schools. Two ideas: Give parents and teachers more say in local schools. Let principals make more decisions. Piniella, Schott talk Reds manager Lou Piniella says he plans to stay with the team for at least one more year. He met for three hours Monday with Marge Schott, the main owner of the team. Afterward, Piniella said as long as Schott is satisfied with the job he is doing, he wants to stay in Cincinnati. Rose charge used; man sentenced A 28-year-old Covington, Ky., man has been sentenced to six months in a halfway house for making unauthorized charges to former Reds player Pete Rose's American Express account. Steven S. Ihlendorf, employed by a Cincinnati travel agency that made travel arrangements for Rose, was accused of using Rose's account number to make more than $30,000 in charges while Rose was in prison for tax evasion, the U.S. Department of Justice said Friday. Ihlendorf pleaded guilty in June in U.S. District Court. Ihlendorf was also sentenced to three years' f ' A call to United Way & Community Chest's Voluntary Action Center (VAC) linked Joe Turner and People Working Cooperatively.

Ida Mae Bladen, of the 1700 block of Vine Street, was found dead in Room 409 of the Dennison Hotel by a hotel maid just before noon, police said. Due to evidence found at the scene, the case is being investigated as a homicide. The Hamilton County coroner is conducting an autopsy. Police are looking for a white man who rented the room. The man is described as in his 30s, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 150-160 pounds, with a thin build. He was clean-shaven and wore a light brown snap-bill cap, a Levi jacket and possibly cowboy boots. Marcella Long, hotel desk manager, said that when the man checked into the hotel at 9:25 a.m. Thursday, he said he had just arrived in town by bus from Texas and that he just planned to stay overnight. "He said he had to catch a bus this (Friday) morning about 5 a.m.," Long said. "Nobody saw him leave." Long said the victim appeared to have been beaten. PRISONS Inmate says he was denied medication An inmate at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility has sued a prison official, saying the system for dispensing prescription drugs has denied him his tuberculosis medication. The prisoner, Lawrence Hill, a Cincinnati man serving 75 years for rape and robbery, said he would stand in line for his pills and receive an empty pill cup. His lawyer, Lawrence Glassmann, asked a three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Sixth District on Friday to overturn a lower court judge's ruling that the official did not have to pay $900,000 in punitive damages from a lawsuit. Sued was Terry Morris, who was deputy superintendent of treatment at the Lucasville prison. Hill claimed Morris ignored his requests for medi- Turner purchasing department.

His wife, Judy, escaped through a window. Judy Daniels, 35, had been separated from her husband for two months and was living with her parents in this southern Ohio town, sheriff's Deputy Phil Malone said.

Postal hub complaint justified, mayor says TOLEDO, Ohio: The mayor says he is Inmate challenges limit on audiotapes LOUISVILLE: A functionally illiterate inmate convicted of sexual abuse and other crimes has launched a legal battle to keep possession of his link to the Bible 85 religious audiotapes. Floyd Schambon, an inmate at Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in La-Grange, contends the tapes are his only way of learning about the Bible. Schambon, from the Warren County community of Rich Pond, filed a lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Louisville asking that the prison be prohibited from enforcing an audiotape policy. The policy says inmates can keep no more than 10 tapes in their cells. A corrections official said the rule is intended to eliminate clutter that would be a fire hazard or security risk. Schambon also is seeking $5,000 in damages for emotional distress and Geologists fascinated by glacier sediment PLAINFIELD, Ind.: Geologists on Friday studied the footprint of a glacier that passed through 18,000 years ago, leaving organic sediment in a ditch along a cafeteria parking lot. Ned Bleuer, a geologist with the Department of Natural Resources in Bloom-ington, led a team studying the site, on property owned by Laughner's Cafeteria. "It's a very important spot," said Bleuer, who has been doing this sort of thing for 25 years. "This is the only site in the state with indications of glacial advances." Several years ago, ditch-diggers exposed a fairly complicated series of glacial deposits that contained an ancient forest bed. They found pieces of logs and moss in the sediment. Bleuer said the site is unusual because 18,000 years is rather young for glacial sediment. angry that Gov. George Voinovich has criticized him for asking the postmaster general to eliminate three cities from competition for a new postal hub. The cities are Columbus, Dayton, and Terre Haute, Ind. All three received advance information about the proposed $67 million center. Toledo Mayor John McIIugh and U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, met Wednesday with Postmaster General Anthony Frank. They told Frank that only cities that played by the rules should remain in competition for the hub. Those cities are Toledo, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Ind., and Peoria, 111. The hub would create 350 new jobs. Voinovich, a Republican, criticized McIIugh, a Democrat, for meeting with Frank, calling the meeting a political ploy. The governor said Columbus and Dayton shouldn't be eliminated from the competition. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 4r- It
