B6 Saturday, April 26. 1997 HOMETOWNEAST The Cincinnati Enquirer Things looking up for aviation-maintenance program Cincinnati State breaks ground on facility at Harrison airport BY LEW MOORES The Cincinnati Enquirer HARRISON Ground was broken Friday at Cincinnati West Airport here for a 32,000-square-foot facility, the new home of Cincinnati State Technical and Community College's aviation maintenance technology program. The college in Clifton has been planning to move its associate's degree and certificate programs in aviation maintenance technology to the 40-acre airport since purchasing it in 1995. The facility which will include five classrooms, seven labs and a hangar is expected to be completed this November, said Michele Imhoff, director of public information for the school. Cost of the construction project is $2.4 million, paid with state capital funds. Cincinnati State purchased the airport from McKenna Air Inc. for $1.1 million. "To be able to put our students into that type of an environment is great exposure for the students," operate the airport. The program will also offer a flight training section. That will be a joint venture between Cincinnati State and Blessair. Public officials in the city of Harrison welcome what will be a new college campus in the city. Harrison annexed the airport property from Harrison Township in 1995. The township did not oppose the annexation. "I think it'll mean a lot to the city," said Dan Gieringer, a city councilman. "I think it'll be great." Dave Bahner, who chairs the city planning commission, said hav ing the program adds to the quality of life and economy of the city. "It's a quality educational institution," said Mr. Bahner. "It'll help the local businesses. It'll help the economy in this city, quite frankly. It's good for the city as a whole. This just adds to the educational atmosphere for the city, and if anybody is interested in living here, we have this in our favor." About 80 students are enrolled in the aviation program, which offers a two-year associate's degree. The program on the Clifton campus has six aircraft, is spread out in different areas across campus and occuDies 23.000 square feet. The move will be a double blessing not only does it offer students an opportunity to study aviation maintenance technology in an aviation setting, it also frees up space on the cramped Clifton campus, f "To be truthful, we need the space on campus," said Ms. .Imhoff. There will be enough room at the new facility for seven instructors and 150 students. Cincinnati State officials expect the program to grow in enrollment. Ja 'It's a quality educational institution.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE B3 tor, not on the city list, would repair four concrete blocks for $400 while a city-approved contractor would repair the same blocks for $1,800. The motion was encouraging news for Mr. Mahlin, a consultant who runs his business out of his home at 2500 Observatory Road. He has lived there 20 years in an early-American style house built in 1903. He takes pride in a well-manicured lawn and considered it his civic duty to call the city in November to report a tree was causing problems. "The tree was between the sidewalk and the curb abutting my property," Mr. Mahlin said. "It was dropping limbs, and roots from the tree had caused parts of the sidewalk to pucker." The city's Forestry Department chopped down the tree and reported to the Department of Public Works that the tree roots, indeed, had caused four concrete blocks in the sidewalk to raise above the others. Inspectors from Public Works agreed the blocks had to be replaced, but ordered Mr. Mahlin to repair them as well as cracks and chipped concrete in 17 other blocks and his driveway. "We saw that the other blocks would need repairs also, so we issued the orders so we wouldn't be called back next year," said Engineer Sue Ernst, who supervises the city's Sidewalk Safety Program. That didn't sit too well with Mr. Mahlin, who now felt his efforts to be a good citizen had backfired. "i became a victim of my own complaint," he said. He appealed the order and suggested the city take a look at other sidewalks and driveways in the same condition as his. The other sidewalks and driveways he had in mind were at Hyde Park Elementary School, Withrow High School and several other private homes. "I don't mean to be squealing on neighbors, but how about making this policy at least fair," Mr. Mahlin said. "This isn't just a protest for me because I don't think residents should be responsible for making repairs on sidewalks when we don't own them." Ms. Ernst explained a city code stipulates owners whose property abuts the sidewalk are responsible for the upkeep of the sidewalk unless exempted by the Sidewalk Board of Appeals. If a repair order is issued, the owner has 15 days to comply or the city manager can order it done and assess the owner for the cost. Ms. Ernst said the city issues between 2,000 to 2,500 orders a year for sidewalk repair. The city has agreed to repair the damage caused by the tree root to Mr. Mahlin's sidewalk, but said there are still other concrete blocks and the driveway Mr. Mahlin is responsible for. Mr. Portune's motion must go through council's Public Works Committee and back to city council for passage before the moratorium is effective. He said he plans to have it before council Wednesday. In the meantime, Mr. Mahlin said he will take bids, but doesn't plan to contract for work until the issue is settled. While the moratorium eventually will stop enforcement, a report with recommendations already drafted by the Public Works Department may not improve the system. One suggestion in the report is the city leave the policy as it is, design engineer Don Rosemeyer said.

Often it's just after a hospital stay and a family member needs the additional care and therapy that only a nursing facility can offer. So where do you turn for the kind of quality care you'd provide if only you could?

In February, the school board accepted 15 of the 19 Red Ribbon recommendations to bolster the district's finances, including adopting the levy amount and a five-year plan outlining how to spend it. Priorities for spending this levy money include restoring busing in the fall, negotiating compensation packages with employees (current contracts contain no raises), and hiring a business manager.

The levy would amount to 1.6 mills, or $49 a year in new taxes for the owner of a $100,000 house, said Julia Toth, district treasurer. The proposal was designed by the 200 volunteers on the Red Ribbon Commission, a board-endorsed group mainly composed of business people some who had been anti-levy formed after the We take seriously the trust that is placed with us each time a family chooses us to provide long or short-term care for one of its members.
