"It's a real issue here," he said. With federal money being scarce these days, however, area cities will have to help themselves. Planners have concluded that the area north of Springdale, including Union Township and Fairfield in Butler County, is growing so rapidly that it is dumping too many cars onto 1-275. And, in a four-mile area, from east to west, sit two major malls Tri-County and Forest Fair, a number of trucking terminals and factories, numerous retail stores and new subdivisions. "We hope to alert some people to what has been happening and what will happen if growth continues," said John Heilman, OKI's transportation-planning coordinator. The traffic congestion has not yet hurt business at the renovated Tri-County Mall, general manager Trudi Malhotra said, but a small percentage of customers undoubtedly have chosen to avoid the area. "We're . lucky. We thought it would impact us more than it did," she said. Dean Donovan, a furniture-sales representative at Perin Interiors on Ohio 747, said he doesn't even want to think of more traffic. "I've been on that exit ramp," he said, "looking into my rear-view mirror and praying I won't be rear-ended. Somebody is going to get killed out here. But we have had unexpected benefits from it. Some people get stuck in the traffic jam, and they pull in here. One day I had two customers. I asked them how they had heard of the store, and they laughed and said they were stuck in traffic. Both bought." The traffic congestion has apparently changed dining habits, too. Tom Hill, who operates the Ponderosa restaurant on Ohio 747 near Kemper Road, said he has noticed that his dinner crowd is arriving later since the traffic has worsened. "I guess it's because people get home later these days," he said. "Restaurants don't usually get crowded so late. We've had to adjust. I can understand it, though. A friend of mine from Fairfield works in Milford, and sometimes he's on the road from 5 to 7 p.m. So now he stays at work later. At least he saves his gas." CONTINUED FROM PAGE A-l 1-275 could need major surgery creating as many as six lanes each way didn't surprise store managers. One look at the lines of cars near their businesses told them that much. But the idea of tearing up the interstate again recent road improvements have been aggravating everybody brought despair. "We already get a lot of complaints about the traffic situation," said Dina Spieles, assistant service manager of Staples office supply on Ohio 747. "At rush hour, just getting in and out of here is a problem. Some customers prefer to come on Sunday because they don't have to deal with the traffic. It's dangerous because a lot of people run the traffic light from the exit ramp even trucks." According to the study, the amount of traffic on that part of 1-275 has increased 8.3 each year from 1964 to 1987. Staples and many other businesses meet at the epicenter of the sprawl, around 1-275 and Ohio 747. There, tempers and brake lights often flash. When cars pour from the interstate's northern exit ramp onto 747, they are greeted by a traffic signal and a railroad crossing that's frequently blocked. At rush hour, traffic sometimes backs up onto the interstate. The planners suggest widening parts of Ohio 747 by as many as four lanes. Some business managers were left wondering which is worse, the problem or the proposed solution. At this point, however, no action is planned on widening roads. Planners can only make suggestions. Several business people agreed that it is far too early to comment on sketchy plans that may never develop into action. Springdale and Sharonville officials asked OKI to conduct the study to predict traffic patterns over the next 20 years. The planning agency suggested expanding the study to include the neighboring cities of Forest Park, Fairfield and Blue Ash, from Hamilton Avenue (U.S. 127) in the west to 1-71 in the east, and from points one mile south of 1-275 to two miles north of it. Administrator Cecil Osborn said Springdale has been seeking ways to deal with traffic trouble ever since the city started growing 20 We challenge you to find out what over 100,000 satisfied customers already know WE GUARANTEE THE LOWEST PRICES ON FINE JEWELRY & DIAMONDS IN THE STATE OF OHIO We guarantee to beat all competitors' prices Come into our store for details WE WON'T BE UNDERSOLD GUARANTEED!

The researchers found that exercise plus estrogen pills were most effective, although calcium and exercise also slowed bone loss. Women begin to lose bone after their body reduces its production of estrogen following menopause. Doctors routinely prescribe estrogen to these women. Not only do the supplements keep their bones strong, they also prevent heart disease and relieve .the hot flashes and other unpleasant symptoms of menopause. Some studies have shown that m exercise alone can also slow the loss of bone. The new study, conducted on 120 older women, showed that women who exercised lost about 3 of bone density per year about the same as those who took no precautions against bone loss. In those who exercised and took calcium supplements,' bone loss nearly stopped. However, among women who took estrogen while exercising, bone density increased about 3 a year. The study vas conducted by Dr. Richard Prince and others from Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Ned-lands, Australia. It's in today's New England Journal of Medicine.
