Thomas Callan served his country in World War II, and then served his community for decades afterward as a township trustee and volunteer firefighter. Mr. Callan, 77, died at Mercy Franciscan Hospital in Harrison on Sunday. "He was always well liked because he was very fair and honest in his dealings, and just friendly - a people person," said his daughter Sarah Shackelford of Harrison. Mr. Callan was born in Law-renceburg and grew up in the Harrison area. He attended Harrison High School, but quit to enlist in the Navy. Her father was very proud of his military service, she said. He was on the amphibious transports that picked up and dropped off troops at the beaches of Iwo Jima, and he was also involved in the battle of Guadalcanal. He stayed in contact with shipmates, and attended their annual reunions. In 1948, he opened a filling station, Alf & Tom's Texaco in West Harrison with partner Alfred Rnlfoc Tlimr ran tlio UU V lUfUV. tJ. 4. 41W J 1 Ull WtV. gas station together until 1963, when Mr. Callan sold his share of the business and founded Callan Oil Co. Inc. Mr. Callan was CEO of Callan Oil, a fuel-distributing business in West Harrison, until he officially turned over the reins of the company to his son, Matthew Callan, about 10 years ago, his daughter said. But Mr. Callan "never really stopped working," Shackelford said, helping with bookkeeping and other duties. He was deeply involved in f Mr. Callan i the community, as well as being an entrepreneur, his daughter said. Starting in 1960, he served as trustee of Harrison Township continuously, except for a two-year period after he lost one election, for 27 years. He also was a member of a volunteer fire department in Harrison for 25 years, and served on the boards of the Harrison Township Water Corp. and the Harrison Cemetery Association. Mr. Callan was a member of the cemetery association, where he had been on the board of trustees since 1986, when he died. Mr. Callan was a 50-year member of Snow Lodge No. 193 F&AM, and the Scottish Rite Valley of Cincinnati. He was also a member of J.B. Yeager American Legion Post No. 199 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Duwell Post No. 7570. Besides his daughter Sarah, survivors include his wife, Gretchen; son, Matthew of Harrison Township; daughter Margaret L. McVaugh of West Chester; and one granddaughter.

E-mail Joyce Holmes, avid volunteer She supported arts, charities By Kristina Goetz The Cincinnati Enquirer DOWNTOWN - The kitchen table was Joyce Swan-go Holmes' office. A tireless volunteer, she worked for countless Greater Cincinnati causes, family members say, with the grace and manner of a true Southern lady. The role she played supporting the city's arts and charities earned her recognition as a former Enquirer Woman of the Year and the key to the city. "She was a very loving mother and was always attentive to what our needs were," said her son, John L. Holmes of downtown. "She was either on the phone and baking something or baking something and on the phone. "We are very proud of what she was able to accomplish." Mrs. Holmes died Nov. 23 at Jewish Hospital after a brief illness. She was 71. A native of Eagle Station, Ky., Mrs. Holmes grew up in Carrollton and graduated from Carroll County High School. While studying English at Transylvania University, she met Harold L "Bud" Holmes. They married Dec. 27, 1952, and moved to Cincinnati. That's when her work as a volunteer began. The symphony, Pops and ballet were her favorite and most visible activities," John Holmes said. "But there were so many other causes she was involved in." Mrs. Holmes Mrs. Holmes was past president of the Cincinnati Symphony I Orchestra As sociation board, CSO Women's Committee, May Festival and the Cincinnati Opera Guild. She also was a former chairwoman of the Cincinnati Antiques Festival. Mrs. Holmes helped found the Classical Music Hall of Fame and oversaw the rejuvenation of the historic Betts House, the oldest surviving building in the city's lower West End. She was past chairwoman of the WCET Action Auction and was a member of Indian Hill Church, Cincinnati Woman's Club, Phi Mu Sorority and the Daughters of the American Revolution. "She dedicated her life to community service and that list is really representative, and not exhaustive," said another son, Stephen S. Holmes of Terrace Park. Besides her husband and sons, Mrs. Holmes also is survived by two sisters, Genrose Turner of Maysville, Ky., and LaVerne Ryan of Carrollton, Ky.; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. A memorial service will be 11 a.m. Thursday at Madeira Silverwood Presbyterian Church. Burial will be in Ghent Masonic Cemetery in Ghent, Ky.

Florists ie Florist 6622 (24 Hr) Metro Area Delivery Watch: Northside neighborhood groups keeps eye on courts From Page CI fenders aren't just getting a slap on the wrist and let out again," said Jim Bodmer, who has lived in College Hill for more than 40 years. "I understand overcrowding, but there are quality of life issues at stake." In Madisonville and' Walnut Hills, residents work through the probation department, helping pro- bation officers keep track of offenders, Walton said. "We've had great success," Walton said. "People in these areas are telling probation officers what's going on. They work hand in hand with police." What is happening in Cincinnati has been repeated around the country and the state. In Dayton, the Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Vio- lence has had a case watch program in the past. A group in Dma, Ohio, watches cases in the Allen County Courthouse. The Toledo Police Department's domestic violence unit also has a court watch. Nationally one of the longest-running court watch programs is in Minnesota, where members have been monitoring child abuse, seiual assault and domestic violence cases for 11 years. "We send monitors to the courtroom every day," said Suzanne El-well, executive director of WATCH. "We feel we have had success," Elwell said. "Victims and prosecutors call and ask us to be there." There are active court watch groups in Florida, New York and Nashville. Some places, including Hawaii and Nevada, have done court watch programs for a speci- I limp' fied period of time. Court officials and police officers welcome the community's input at court proceedings, they say. "We see the victims of theft offenses follow through, but rarely do neighborhoods follow through," said Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Steve Martin. "It would be nice to have their input on cases." He cautioned that judges must act within the law's sentencing guidelines and may not always do what the residents want, but said their voice is an important one in determining a sentence. "We are 100 percent for (such groups)," said Lt. Kurt Byrd, a spokesman for the Cincinnati Police Department "It shows support for anti-crime. We are all on the same page. "Hopefully it becomes infectious throughout other neighborhoods," Byrd said. Reporter Anna Michael contributed to this story. E-mail - I f
