The Cincinnati Enquirer METRO Wednesday, October 5, 1994 C5 Action proposed for light-rail transit system Officials hear plan for east side BY JOHN ECKBERG The Cincinnati Enquirer Efforts to reduce traffic east of downtown to Clermont County should include Ohio Turnpike Commission funding and consider light-rail mass transit, says Jim Duane, director of the Ohio-Kentucky-Indi-ana Regional Council of Governments. Duane, speaking at a forum of east-side mayors and public offi- cials Tuesday, said planning for transit needs for the eastern suburbs should begin before January. A study would take 18 months to complete, he said. The meeting was convened at the Hamilton County Administration Building to discuss the potential to move people to downtown on rail and on a four-lane roadway to be built through the Little Miami River valley. "If the Ohio Turnpike Commission has a source of funds, then we want to tap it," Duane said. The commission has accrued some $500 million from tolls on a roadway in northern Ohio. A portion of that could be directed to Cincinnati, said Raymond Cadwal-lader, executive director of Ohio's Great Lakes Mid-Atlantic Corridor Committee. Cadwallader estimated that $50 million to $60 million might be available now to pay for the plan that would marry bike trails, light-rail transit and a four-lane road similar to the Reed Hartman Highway in Blue Ash. Public utility lines would follow the easement. Cadwallader wants the 1,000-foot-wide swath to go east from the Little Miami River near the southern end of Red Bank Road in Fairfax, through the river valley along the Newtown village limits and then hook up with Ohio 32. Along that route are two golf courses, numerous soccer fields and a region of Anderson Township called Ancor, which leaders want to see developed into an industrial park. Officeholders said constituents are split on the plan. Robert A. Dorsey, an Anderson Township trustee, said township residents would opposed any effort to upgrade Ohio 32. However, Donald Shanks, mayor of Mariemont, said village resi dents want to see congestion relieved along U.S. 50 and think a project through the valley on the east side of the river could do it. Besides the roadway, the plan calls for commuter train stations at the downtown riverfront, Eggle-ston, Delta and Beechmont avenues, FairfaxMariemont, New-townClough Pike, Mount Carmel and BataviaMilford. The line should also head south into Kentucky, perhaps as far as the CincinnatiNorthern Kentucky International Airport.

A $500 GIFT CERTIFICATE College plans to buy rural airport Cincinnati State to move program BY RICHARD GREEN The Cincinnati Enquirer HARRISON Cincinnati State Technical and Community College is in the airport business. The Central Parkway commuter college announced Tuesday that it has agreed to buy the Cincinnati West Airport in Harrison. The school plans to relocate its aviation-maintenance technology program to the 40-acre airport, which will remain open to private users. "This is an issue we studied for a year, and it's something that's good for our college and our aviation students," college President James P. Long said. "Faculty, staff and students are overjoyed that their program will now be located at an operating airport." The program is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. The college will spend $4.14 million in state funds from the 1995-96 capital budget to buy the private airport, as well as build classroom space, aviation laboratories and offices. Operations at the airport total 15 acres and include two hangars, an administrative building, a 5,500-square-foot equipment area and a 3,000-foot paved runway. The university's 120 aviation students now study at a small hangar where six aircraft are housed in an enclosed concrete area the size of a football field. "We cannot even taxi airplanes down a runway right now, so moving to a real airport will give our program a major boost," said Larry Morris, dean of Cincinnati State's engineering technologies division. McKenna Air Inc. now owns the airport. The deal is contingent upon an environmental study, zoning assurances, access to Harrison's water and sewer lines, and the release of capital funds by the Ohio Controlling Board.

At stake is almost $500,000 being sought by lawyers under federal law that makes losers pay winners' attorneys' fees and expenses in civil-rights cases. The city also asked the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to reinstate its bar to the Klan cross. Judge Carl Rubin said the city unconstitutionally interfered with Klan freedom of speech. The city says the ban was constitutional because the cross constitutes "fighting words," not protected by the First Amendment. In its attack on fees sought by Scott Greenwood, local attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, the city says he is asking for an unacceptably high hourly rate for too many hours. Richard A. Ganulin, assistant city solicitor, also argued that any payment should be withheld until appeals are over and if Greenwood is the ultimate winner. Karl Kadon III, the deputy city solicitor who filed the memorandum, said hourly rates were acceptable, but Greenwood, Al-phonse Gerhardstein and their colleagues billed the city for too many hours. If Judge S. Arthur Spiegel awards fees to the other side, Kadon continued, some costs should be borne by Equal Rights Not Special Rights, which intervened and participated in the unsuccessful defense of Issue 3.
