6B STATE NEWS JOURNAL Friday, November 3, 1995 Ohio in brief Woman taken into custody COLUMBUS (AP) A police standoff ended peacefully Thursday after officers took a woman into custody. Veronica T. Greif, 43, of Columbus, was charged with two counts of aggravated menacing, said police Lt. David Wood. He said officers did not find a weapon in the house. She was allegedly holding her 76-year-old mother and her 47-year-old sister in the house, Wood said. Plane makes forced stop SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) A loss of oil pressure forced an American Eagle commuter plane to make an unscheduled landing. The plane, an ATR-42 turboprop with 30 passengers and three crew members, landed safely at Michiana Regional Transportation Center before noon Wednesday, said Mitch Baranowski, an airline spokesman. American Eagle Flight 4006 was flying from Columbus, Ohio, to Chicago when the crew noticed a drop in oil pressure in the left engine of the two-engine plane, Baranowski said. Emergency equipment was called to the airport as a safety precaution but was not needed, he said. There were no injuries. Suit settled for $60M CINCINNATI (AP) - A class-action lawsuit involving 2,000 people nationwide with defective wire leads between their hearts and pacemakers has been settled for $60 million. Attorneys Louis F. Gilli-gan and Gregory M. Utter filed the agreement with U.S. District Judge Sandra Beckwith. Payments range from $62,500 for people who received the implants before they were 21 to $18,000 for patients who received them after age 80. Beckwith has scheduled a Dec. 15 hearing to listen to any challenges to the agreement. If she approves it, initial checks are to be mailed by June 1. Court ruling favors Islam CLEVELAND (AP) A judge has ordered the city to rent its convention center to the Nation of Islam for a men-only meeting. U.S. District Judge George White ruled that Cleveland's refusal to lease the center to the Nation of Islam for a men-only gathering led by Minister Louis Farrakhan violated the First Amendment. The Nation of Islam's local mosque wanted to rent the center for a speech by Farrakhan. The city had refused' to do so because it said a men-only event would violate city and state anti-discrimination laws. The American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the Nation of Islam, said the religious organization should not be forced to give up a 60-year tradition of holding separate meetings for men and women. The tradition allows men-only meetings Monday nights and women-only meetings Saturday mornings. Train light display Residents, company at odds over landfill HARRISON, Ohio (AP) Neighbors of a Monsanto Co. plant hope that a zoning ballot issue or a lawsuit will stop a proposed landfill expansion. The site of the project is Whitewater Township, a largely rural area 20 miles west of Cincinnati and the only township in Hamilton County without zoning regulations. Monsanto has a deal to sell the 128-acre site, including 25 acres in Indiana, to Cincinnati-based trash hauler Rumpke Waste Inc. The sale would be conditional to approval from Ohio to convert the site to accept solid waste from other sources. The landfill now takes trash from the company's plastic pellets plant. Ohio now allows the landfill to accept up to 114 tons of trash a day. The expansion would increase the limit to 4,000 tons a day. If the zoning issue fails in Tuesday's election, Monsanto could go ahead and sell the site to Rumpke for as much as $23 million, activist Carol Anthony said Thursday. Residents fear that would mean increased dangers of environmental poisoning and chemical fires and leaks, as well as odors and dust. Ken Perica, general superintendent of the Addyston plastics plant, refused to reveal the sale price. He said Monsanto believes the proposed one-acre residential zoning is an illegal infringement. "That's ridiculous. It's been an industrial landfill for 30 years," Perica said. "It doesn't allow us to develop our property." St. Louis-based Monsanto and Rumpke sued the township and the Hamilton County Board of Elections, stopping an Aug. 8 special election on the zoning plan. The companies said all required procedures had not been followed. ' The companies also challenged Tuesday's election, but Common Pleas Judge Timothy Hogan ruled it should proceed. The companies' appeal of Hogan's decision is pending. The residents say Monsanto's lawsuits infringed on their right to vote about their own zoning. If residents reject zoning, Anthony said her group Residents Against Local Landfill Expansions is prepared to file a lawsuit accusing Monsanto of pollution from the landfill. Only up to 61 acres of the land is allowed to be used for landfill operations. The Indiana portion may not be used, because the company does not have Indiana permits. A creek runs downhill from the site to the Ohio River, Anthony said. "That's a major concern of ours. If something's leaching out now, what happens if they put a lot more stuff in there?" she said. On Tuesday, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency issued a draft permit to Monsanto. The Associated Press Tom Fleinauer guides part of the steel lighting framework into place on the facade of the Union Terminal as the Museum Center puts up its annual Chirstmas train lighting display in Cincinnati on Thursday. The train measures 100 feet by 35 feet and has blinking lights that give the impression of wheel movement. Drug ring could hold key to woman's disappearance TOLEDO (AP) Federal authorities said they have broken up a major drug ring that had operated in the area for the last 15 years. They also linked the 1981 disappearance of a Toledo woman to two of the people charged in the case. A federal grand jury indicted nine people on drug-related charges. One of the nine is Richard Neller, 49, a lawyer. According to the indictment, Neller and others abducted and murdered his secretary, Cynthia Anderson, after she allegedly overheard a conversation between Neller and Jose Rodriguez Jr. about their drug operation. Neither Neller nor Rodriguez has been charged with murder. Rodriguez is one of the nine people charged with being part of the drug ring. The indictment said Rodriguez was the leader of the gang. It described Neller as a close friend and adviser to Rodriguez in connection with the drug business. Ms. Anderson disappeared from Neller's law office. Her body has never been found. Law enforcement authorities were searching an area around a suburban Perrysburg pond in connection with the case. The suspects are being held in the Lucas County jail without bond.'
