INSIDE FILE Old tires to patch potholes If the weather cooperates, work crews today plan to mix a batch of 750 ground-up tires and tar and spread it on a road in Clermont County. It is an experiment to see whether rubber might be an alternative to conventional techniques of repairing roads. The county engineer's office plans to monitor the three-tenths of a mile stretch of Clermont Center Road in Batavia Township to see whether fewer cracks and potholes form. Using old tires is about one-third more expensive than typical fabric underlays, Engineer Ralph Palmer said, but it promotes recycling and saves landfill space. The county is spending $16,165 to lay down the material developed by Terry Industries, a Hamilton firm that manufactures asphalt and emulsions for the paving industry. The tires come from suppliers in Ohio and Indiana, said company President Randy Terry. He said his is one of the only companies in the country using shredded tires for this type of application. REPORTER: Jim Calhoun O UNITED WAY PEOPLE Dave Baucom is dedicated Pembaur's employees who failed to appear before a grand jury investigating Medicaid fraud. They did not have search warrants and the employees were not there. Pembaur sued for damages for emotional distress and loss of business related to the raid. In 1990, Rubin awarded Pembaur $5,000, saying he probably suffered from the incident but couldn't establish a specific amount. A federal court Friday rejected appeals from both sides in a festering fight between physician Bertold Pembaur and Hamilton County over a 1977 violation of his civil rights. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati' affirmed Judge Carl Rubin's decision awarding Pembaur $5,000. The case began when deputy sheriffs forced their way into his Avondale office looking for two of Brave teen hit by bullet dies Derrick Turnbow died last Saturday at Drake Center when his heartbeat and blood pressure suddenly changed for the worse. Derrick will be remembered for the courage he showed over the last 20 months. He was struck in the head by a bullet during a fight at Taft High School on Feb. 20, 1990. Derrick was not part of the fight. Many people from across the country came to visit Derrick, who was unable to move from the neck down. Two of his visitors were President Bush and Eric Davis. Derrick's proudest moment came when he received his high school diploma this year. Faulty Pap smears allow cancer to spread Pap smear tests are performed on women in order to find cancer before it has spread too far. The American Cancer Society says there will be about 13,000 new cases of cancer of the cervix this year. It is believed that 4,500 women will die from this type of cancer this year. Why will so many women die from this type of cancer? One reason is that women do not have the Pap test done often enough. However, another reason is that the people doing the tests are not always careful enough. And a third reason is that the test itself is not foolproof. Former Klansman runs for governor David Duke, who used to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan, is running for governor of Louisiana. Duke finished second behind former Gov. Edwin Edwards in the primary election. Because Duke, a Republican, and Edwards, a Democrat, were so close in votes, they will meet in a runoff election Nov. 16. Braves meet Twins in sixth game tonight The Atlanta Braves hope to win the baseball title tonight. They will play the sixth game of the 1991 World Series in Minnesota, home of the Twins.

Representatives of the U.S. and Ohio Environmental Protection Agencies and Fernald Residents for Environmental Safety and Health A man robbed the Central Trust Co. branch bank at Seventh and Race streets Friday afternoon, Cincinnati police said. The man entered the bank about 4:15 p.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money, police said. The robber described as a black man, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, in his early to mid-40s indicated that he had a gun, but no weapon was shown. The teller gave the robber an undetermined amount of cash. Officers surrounded the building and searched it, but did not find the suspect. ACCIDENTS Speeding cited in fatal car crash Speeding is blamed for a single-car crash Thursday in northern Brown County that killed a 42-year-old Hillsboro man. Vicky Coburn, a clerk at the state highway patrol in Georgetown, said Friday that Jerome K. Flowers was speeding when he lost control of his car rounding a curve on Greenbush East Road at 6:10 a.m. Thursday and struck a utility pole. Coburn said Flowers, of Sorg Road, was thrown from the car. He was flown by helicopter to University Hospital, where he died. COURTS Judge stops train from using whistle A judge Friday issued a temporary restraining order to stop train whistles from sounding in the city of Middletown in violation of a city law. Judge John R. Moser also set a hearing for 9 a.m. Nov. 8 in Butler County Common Pleas Court on the city's request for a preliminary injunction to stop Consolidated Rail Corp. from sounding the whistles. Middletown adopted its anti-whistle ordinance in 1977. It was upheld by the Court of Appeals for the First District. A spokesman for the railroad firm previously said it has instructed its train crews to sound whistles at all grade crossings in an effort to save lives. Whistles started blowing again earlier this month. Middletown submitted affidavits of residents who said the whistles to providing the support and leadership necessary to steer children away from drugs.

The program has clubs that meet monthly at five local schools, where teens share their exoeriences and reinforce could jeopardize their health. Ex-cable executive sentenced for fraud Former cable television executive Frank W. Allen Jr. was sentenced to 30 months in prison Friday for interstate fraud. U.S. District Judge Carl B. Rubin then granted the Florence, Ky., resident five weeks on bond, so he could spend Thanksgiving with his family before going to prison. Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Hanley said Allen, 39, took about $420,000 from Jacor Communications Inc., which bought his Telesat Communications of Kentucky Inc. The fraud became a federal crime when Allen moved the money across state lines. Hanley said Allen, 39, has given up his home and other property as restitution.

ELECTIONS Finances lopsided in Clermont race Priscilla O'Donnell has outspent opponent Tom Herman in the first race for judge of Clermont County Municipal Court. Campaign finance reports filed this week with the board of elections show O'Donnell raised $21,721.70. Herman's campaign treasury showed $8,264. By the time the election is over, Herman expects to spend $20,000, he said. Final spending records do not have to be turned in until after the Nov. 5 election. Herman's financial report was filed at the elections office 26 minutes after the 4 p.m. Thursday deadline. The late filing is a violation of state law. If anyone complains, the Ohio Elections Commission could fine him as much as $100 or let the matter pass if he has a good excuse, according to Maureen Brown, communications director for Ohio Secretary of State Robert A.

Bald Rock can't sleep in wake of mass grave 3 BALD ROCK, Ky.: The discovery of four corpses in a mass grave left Bald Rock residents stunned and jittery, and some said the community has become too violent to feel safe any more. Marty Anders, a Bald Rock resident, said the town has been a haven for moonshiners and marijuana growers. However, the discovery of a grave with four corpses Thursday has made people wonder about town safety even more. "It's upset people so bad in Bald Rock they're not sleeping good at night," said Aileen Morgan, owner of Bald Rock Community Market. The grave contained the bodies of Calvin Reynolds, 23, who had been miss- ing since October, 1989, along with three Van Wert, Ohio, residents. Solvent abuse on rise among schoolchildren 4 INDIANAPOLIS: While the use of illicit drugs among schoolchildren has declined in recent years,' solvent abuse is on the rise, an activist says. "What you're talking about is hundreds, if not thousands, of common household products that are in every garage, bathroom and kitchen that kids can and do abuse to get high," said Hugh F. Young Jr., president of the Solvent Abuse Foundation for Education. Four central Indiana high school students have died recently from sniffing butane and leather protectants. The latest death occurred Saturday when a 15-year-old Noblesville boy collapsed after inhaling a leather protectant.

Cleveland schools, state reach budget pact 1 COLUMBUS, Ohio: Officials from Cleveland schools and state Superintendent Ted Sanders said Friday that they reached an agreement that will avoid a court battle over the school district's financial problems. Sanders said the agreement provides for $11.6 million worth of spending cuts that would balance the budget of the 70,000-pupil district this fiscal year. The resolution, expected to be approved Monday by the Cleveland Board of Education, does not involve projected financial problems in fiscal year 1993. Sanders had threatened to go to court to seek control of district finances if the board did not adopt a fiscally responsible budget. Superintendent resigns under board pressure 2 FRANKFORT, Ky.: Delmis Donta, conceding he would be ousted by the state school board, resigned Friday as Boyd County school superintendent. He thereby avoided becoming an ignominious footnote: No superintendent had ever been removed from office by the state. Donta, 64, had been suspended without pay since Oct. 2, when state Education Commissioner Thomas C. Boysen charged him with official misconduct and neglect of duty. Charges against Donta involved his alleged sabotaging of efforts by teachers and parents in his district to implement the state's new school reform laws. Donta claimed he was the victim of a vendetta by politicians and powerful local t Bald Roc V,' Cleveland schools Superintendent Frank Huml said the plan would eliminate some currently vacant para-professional positions and leave others unfilled.
