B-2Metro THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Thursday, October 17, 1991 TT" i f A t i III V i D THURSDAY MONITOR ex if : J. k Suspect linked to burglaries Thirty-four of 38 burglaries in Ma-riemont between early 1989 and September of this year have been cleared with the arrest of a man caught during a burglary in Hyde Park Monday. They are among about 250 burglaries committed in the last three years that Cincinnati police said they have linked to Donald Williams, 34, who gave a Jackson Avenue address in Lincoln Heights during his arraignment Tuesday. Cincinnati Robbery investigator Dan Steers said Wednesday the majority of the 250 robberies were committed in 1991, and half of them in Cincinnati, primarily Hyde Park, O'Bryonville, Pleasant Ridge, Kennedy Heights and East Walnut Hills. Steers said Cincinnati police will be talking with Wyoming Police today . Robberies committed outside the city, besides Mariemont and Wyoming, include more than 25 in Glendale and about 30 in Butler County's Union Township. Most of the burglaries were committed after midnight and before 6 a.m., Steers said. He was being held on a $100,000 cash bond Wednesday at the Hamilton County Justice Center. Williams is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Oct. 22 in Hamilton County Municipal Court. UPDATE Fifth teen-ager dies of crash injuries Josh Slinger, 15, of Hamilton has become the fifth victim of an accident Friday on Ohio 122, about one-quarter mile east of Elk Creek Road, in Madison Township Slinger died Wednesday at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. Four other teen-agers were killed when the stolen van they were driving left the rain-slickened road, struck a guard rail and flipped over several times, Sheriff Richard Holzberger reported. Also killed were Shelly L. Mcintosh, 16, the driver and daughter of Wallace and Carolyn Mcintosh of Trenton, Ohio, in Butler County; Amy Lampe, 15, daughter of Lawrence and lawyer representing the Hamilton County Board of Elections. A hearing on the motion was set for Oct. 30. And if the case is not dismissed, the trial will begin Oct. 31. Neighbors of one of the bars, Mer-gy's, won a local-option issue in May to close all bars in the precinct. Neighbors said Mergy's patrons often caused disturbances in the neighborhood and said they had no recourse except the local-option issue. The other bars are Caps Tavern, Mentor Cafe and Norwood Cafe. Bar owners filed suit, claiming the board of elections mishandled the petitions and the election results should be declared invalid. Man indicted in stabbing death Maurice Broadus, 27, faces murder and aggravated-robbery charges in connection with the Sept. 6 stabbing death of Howard Barkau, 62. Broadus was indicted Wednesday by a Hamilton County grand jury. Barkau was found dead in his home in the 7000 block of Glenmeadow Drive. Police say he was stabbed several times. Broadus was in the Hamilton County Justice Center, Wednesday, in lieu of $100,000 bond.

INSIDE FILE This quake won't fizzle out Here's an earthquake prediction you can count on: Ahmet Aktan says there will be an earthquake registering between 4 and 5 on the Richter scale -later this month in central Hamilton County. : Aktan, director of the University of Cincinnati's Infrastructure Research Institute, knows there's "going to be an earthquake because he's going to ;make one. - Aktan plans to simulate a minor earthquake on 'the Cross County Highway bridge over Reading Road. Aktan will create the effect by mounting onto the road a 3,500-pound piece of electrohydraulic equipment about the size of an office desk. The equipment will move horizontally in each direction to simulate the movement of an earthquake. Computers will record the results, allowing researchers to study the likely impact of an earthquake on common highway bridges. "The level certainly is not going to be detrimental to the structure, but it is going to be enough that we can pick up the weaknesses," Aktan said. The experiments will be done over three nights later this month. Only the westbound lanes will be involved. One lane will remain open. Aktan said the 1 989 San Francisco quake registering 6.9 on the Richter scale focused "attention on highway construction, including how ; Tristate bridges would react to earthquake-magnitude stress. : "Seeing what it did to California which was supposedly prepared it got us thinking we -may not even fare as well as the Bay area did," .he said. ; The biggest threat of a quake in this area comes from the New Madrid Fault, which runs 'beneath the Mississippi River from Cairo, III., to 'Marked Tree, Ark.

' "':' f' ' ' Xavier reports enrollment drop for fall session About 300 fewer students enrolled at Xavier University this fall than in 1990, but the school reached new highs in full-tune students, the university announced this week. Xavier's enrollment this fall is 6,383, a 4.5 decline from the 6,680 enrolled in fall, 1990. David Sauter, Xavier registrar, said the school's 2,894 full-time undergraduates are an enrollment record. The number of freshmen enrolled also increased, from 646 to 728. The overall loss of students came mainly from the closing of three satellite master's programs in Columbus and Lexington, Ky., the school said. Xavier discontinued master of business administration programs in Columbus and Lexington and a master of education program in Columbus. Malley is interested in pursuing a career in the clerical field and was told of this volunteer opportunity by a job coach. She agreed it would be a good way to lend a hand and gain practical experience. She's been at the center three days a week since July, 1990. "My work here is important to me because of the values it instills in me," Malley said.

Council vote flushes working outhouses 1MORRISTOWN, Ohio: If you want an outhouse that actually works, sorry, you can't have one in this town. It's against the law. The village council this week outlawed working outhouses in this eastern Ohio town of 400. The Belmont County community has no sewage system, said Mayor Betty June Hamilton. Residents use septic systems. "I haven't had luck in getting the help of the state in building a sewage system, and that's why we don't need more outside toilets," she said Wednesday. Hamilton called council into special session Monday night to enact the law after hearing a rumor of plans for some new outhouse construction. ing to donate bone marrow for a 6-month-old baby who needs a transplant, officials said Wednesday. James and Lori Finzel made a public appeal for donors Monday to help their infant daughter, Carissen, who has a rare blood disease. The couple has had problems finding a matching donor tissue. "We're hoping we can get just one matching donor out of all the people who are donating," Finzel said. The girl's disease results in destruction of her white blood cells. The couple lost two other daughters to the same disease last year. Man can't get cash back from church 3BURKESVILLE, Ky.: A.B. Cash found out Wednesday that it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for him to get his collection money back from the church. Cumberland District Judge Steve Hurt on Wednesday dismissed Cash's breach of contract lawsuit against the Living Word Assembly of God church in Burkesville, a town of about 1,700 about 15 miles from the Kentucky-Tennessee border. Hurt ruled that there was no contract and that Cash could not retrieve donations given freely. "I used to wonder how David and Goliath felt. Now I know." Cash filed suit Sept. 10 against the south central Kentucky church and its pastor, the Rev. Loise Moses. Cash claimed that the church welshed on its promises of "love, spiritual guidance and fellowship." Cash and his family began attending the church in early 1988. Cash sought the return of $600 in offerings, a $125 gift to Moses and $275 in punitive damages. 1 Dog helps boy save dad pinned by tractor 4 INDIANAPOLIS: A stray cocker spaniel helped a 10-year-old rescue his father, three days after the family took the dog in. William Foy was assembling a lift on his tractor Monday when a metal bracket slipped and fell on him pinning him so he could hardly breathe. "I didn't hear anything. But Duke ran to the window and started barking," said Billy. "He ran to the barn and I followed him. That's when I found my dad under the tractor." . Billy eventually hoisted the bracket off him with a floor jack. The youngster helped his father to the house and called his mother at work. Foy was hospitalized with a broken rib and several deep gashes.
