  • WILMINGTON — A proposed water rate increase could help Wilmington’s Water Department. During Thursday night’s council meeting, council held the first reading of an ordinance to provide an increase in water rates to mainly combat maintenance issues,including the harmful algae bloom. “Just to be clear, we know what the four to five-year impact on the Water Department will be. We have to spell it out. We want to be as transparent as possible,” said Wilmington City Council member Kelsey Swindler. She added that if the issue was ignored and put off “until next year” then Water Superintendent Rick Schaeffer would be put into the position of having to come back in three or four years and ask for money. According to her, there was only one rate increase between 2004 and 2014, but one was recommended multiple times. She added that it was a “recurring theme” that superintendents would come in, tell council issues and then they would “fall off the radar.” “That scares me because I don’t want it to happen again,” she said. “It’s too vital. Especially with water.” Other council members agree with this sentiment, including Jonathan McKay, who said, “We have to do what we have to do… It’s a hard pill to swallow but a necessary one.” Mayor John Stanforth stated, “I’d rather have a root canal without novocaine than raise rates on our citizens. But we don’t have a choice.” Swindler stated she’d like a public forum at the next meeting on Dec. 6 and invites locals to participate if they have any questions or concerns. Also during council: • During the Finance Committee report, council held the first reading of an ordinance on the city’s 2018 budget. • Mayor John Stanforth gave updates on city projects during his report. On the waterline on Fife Avenue, he stated he “literally saw the last connection made” on Thursday. He stated there was work still needed to be done, though. On paving projects, he said if you live in the 4th Ward “you’ll see what the rest of the city is going to look like in another three years.” He also told attendees the city tore down their first house today through the land bank. The house was at Langdon Avenue. He stated houses targeted to be torn down will have a big red “X” on them. .neFileBlock { margin-bottom: 20px; } .neFileBlock p { margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; } .neFileBlock .neFile { border-bottom: 1px dotted #aaa; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-top: 10px; } .neFileBlock .neCaption { font-size: 85%; } Council member Kelsey Swindler speaks to the council on the proposed ordinance. http://www.wnewsj.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/22/2017/11/web1_DSC_0790.jpgCouncil member Kelsey Swindler speaks to the council on the proposed ordinance.

  • Peer supporter to serve in recovery houses in Clinton CountyPeer supporter to serve in recovery houses in Clinton County

    Brett Duncan and Candace Moore have become certified Peer Recovery Supporters and are joining Mental Health America (MHA) of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio. They will work in Clinton and Warren Counties. Peer Recovery Supporters are individuals with personal lived experience in substance use or mental health disorders who are in recovery, and who want to give back to the community. Peer Recovery Supporters are a very important part of the recovery journey for many individuals seeking help, stated an MHA news release. Peers not only provide emotional and spiritual support, but also inspiration and hope that recovery is possible. “Our peers are individuals who have worked incredibly hard on their mental health or substance use recoveries and are now wanting to give back to Clinton and Warren County residents who need a helping hand,” added the release. MHA has community relations with direct service providers in Clinton and Warren Counties and has placed its peers in multiple locations in the two counties. Duncan will be placed in men’s recovery houses in Clinton County. He will help clients work with budgeting, identifying resources in the community, finding housing and providing support. And Duncan will assist in support groups and one-on-one meetings with clients. Duncan said he is very excited to begin his journey as a Peer Recovery Supporter, and is eager to start giving back to the community as his own life has not always been an easy one. Since his early teens, Duncan has struggled with depression and anxiety. He was hospitalized for the first time at 17 and diagnosed with severe depression. After being hospitalized, he continued outpatient care until he started college. He successfully completed his bachelor’s degree in communication and remained stable for more than a decade. With the pressures of work and marriage, he began to struggle with anxiety and depression which led him to seek professional help in his early 30s. Through the help of professionals and medication, Duncan was again able to stabilize his mental health until 2015-16. A series of health issues, deaths and other losses led to two hospitalizations and three Emergency Room visits in January and February 2017. IOP (mental health Intensive Outpatient Program) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) programs further assisted his recovery. As a result of those experiences, Duncan has a strong desire to help others with both mental health and substance abuse concerns. He wants his journey of self-awareness and healing to be shared with others, and to give support to individuals who are going through a difficult time. Candace Moore will be placed at Solutions Community Counseling and Recovery Center in Lebanon, Ohio, in Warren County. She will be assisting with support groups, open office hours, and with one-on-one meetings with clients. Moore feels this will be a great fit for her as she has struggled with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), generalized anxiety disorder, and depression for most of her life. She said she wouldn’t have been able to succeed and be where she is now without the love and support from her family and friends. She believes there is nothing else in the world she’d rather be doing than helping others reach recovery. If you are interested in learning more about Peer Recovery Supporters or if you would like to learn how to become certified, please visit Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio at www.mhankyswoh.org or send an email to MHA Program Coordinator Jenna Florence at jflorence@mhankyswoh.org . .neFileBlock { margin-bottom: 20px; } .neFileBlock p { margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; } .neFileBlock .neFile { border-bottom: 1px dotted #aaa; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-top: 10px; } .neFileBlock .neCaption { font-size: 85%; } From left are Peer Recovery Supporters Brett Duncan, Lynnette Graesser, Sheldon Greene and Stacy Litz, Clinical Supervisor Lori Grant, Peer Recovery Supporter Debra West, Program Coordinator Jenna Florence and Area Director Michelle Rolf.

  • Candidate for Ohio governor reveals sexual past on FacebookCandidate for Ohio governor reveals sexual past on Facebook

    COLUMBUS (AP) — A state Supreme Court justice running for Ohio governor volunteered candid details of his sexual past on Facebook, saying Friday that he was taking a swipe at the “media frenzy” over sexual misconduct. Democrat William O’Neill’s post was immediately attacked as inappropriate and led to calls for his ouster. In it, he wrote that he has been “sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females.” He wrote that the women included “a gorgeous blonde” with whom he “made passionate love” in a hay loft and a “drop dead gorgeous red head” from Cleveland. After posting the message, he edited it to remove some identifying information about the women. O’Neill told The Associated Press that the details provided were true and that was trying to make a point. “It’s a matter of parody suggesting that, as a governor candidate, I assume I am the next target of the media frenzy,” he said. “So I figure let’s just get it out here on Front Street right here and now,” he added, referring to the street where the Supreme Court building sits. Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor, the first woman to hold that position, condemned the post. “No words can convey my shock,” she said in a statement. “This gross disrespect for women shakes the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judiciary.” Former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton, a leading Democrat in the governor’s race, called for O’Neill to resign immediately, saying he was trivializing the issue. “As an attorney, I’m appalled at these remarks of a Supreme Court Justice,” she said. “As a Democrat, I’m horrified a statewide candidate would belittle victims of sexual harassment and assault this way. And, as a woman, I’m outraged he would equate sexual assault with indiscretion.” Sutton’s call followed by a day her unveiling of a plan to combat sexual harassment and sexual assault in state government, where two state lawmakers have resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations in about a month’s time. O’Neill said the post grew out of frustration over Democrats’ calls to remove Al Franken from the U.S. Senate over sexual misconduct allegations. “Democrats are now calling for Al Franken’s removal from the United States Senate for an indiscreet act for which he has apologized, the victim has accepted the apology — and now the feeding frenzy begins,” O’Neill said.

  • Patrol: Crashes, fatalities jumped after Ohio went to 70 mphPatrol: Crashes, fatalities jumped after Ohio went to 70 mph

    COLUMBUS (AP) — The state highway patrol says crashes and fatalities jumped after Ohio adopted a 70 mph speed limit on many roads and highways. A patrol report released Thursday found a 24 percent increase in crashes on 70 mph roads, including 22 percent more fatal and injury crashes. The patrol examined crash data from 2011 and 2012, before lawmakers increased the limits from 65 mph to 70 mph, and two years afterward, in 2013 and 2014. The change affected 570 miles of rural interstates and 398 miles of rural freeways. The report said speed-related crashes jumped 16 percent while crashes related to lane changes jumped 66 percent. The patrol is targeting high-crash areas but also encourages drivers to always buckle up and obey all traffic laws. .neFileBlock { margin-bottom: 20px; } .neFileBlock p { margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; } .neFileBlock .neFile { border-bottom: 1px dotted #aaa; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-top: 10px; } .neFileBlock .neCaption { font-size: 85%; } http://www.wnewsj.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/22/2017/11/web1_Ohio-State-Highway-Patrol-5.jpg The post Patrol: Crashes, fatalities jumped after Ohio went to 70 mph appeared first on Wilmington News Journal.

  • Sen. Brown sheds Franken cash; rival Mandel tweets on MooreSen. Brown sheds Franken cash; rival Mandel tweets on Moore

    COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Republican Senate candidate Josh Mandel says Roy Moore should quit the Alabama Senate race if allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls are true. The state treasurer after declining to comment for days tweeted Thursday: “I agree with Ivanka Trump. If these allegations are true, Roy Moore should step down.” Meanwhile, Sen. Sherrod Brown, the Democrat Mandel wants to unseat, has bowed to political pressure related to separate sexual misconduct allegations. Brown’s campaign says it will donate to charity $28,100 in contributions received since 2006 from Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken and Franken’s PAC. Franken has apologized after a woman traveling with him on a 2006 USO tour accused him of forcibly kissing her then groping her for a photograph taken while she slept on a transport plane.

  • 3 Ohio pastors accused of luring teen girls, paying for sex3 Ohio pastors accused of luring teen girls, paying for sex

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Three pastors worked together to entice teen girls to have sex, often for money, and shared photos and videos of the girls, federal prosecutors said. One founded his own church and built a large following in Toledo. The other two oversaw congregations with a few dozen people that met in rented spaces. All three pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges that include child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Each could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted. Federal court documents describe how one of the pastors had sex with a girl in his church office and how another used his phone to record himself having sex with a teen. There were at least three victims mentioned in the indictment, the youngest being 14. While the men — Cordell Jenkins, 47, Anthony Haynes, 38, and Kenneth Butler, 37 — all operated their own churches, federal prosecutors said the investigation was connected and remains ongoing. Haynes and Jenkins were arrested in April while Butler, who most recently ran a small church where his wife was the co-pastor, was arrested in October. Lorin Zaner, an attorney for Jenkins, said he has not seen all of the evidence prosecutors have gathered so it was too early to say what will happen next. Butler’s attorney declined to comment, and a message seeking comment was left with an attorney for Haynes. It’s not surprising if the three men were acting together, said Celia Williamson, director of the University of Toledo’s Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute. “It says to me what we already knew, that sex trafficking is a business,” she said. “Of course they worked together. That’s how it thrives.” Prosecutors say Haynes first began pursuing and grooming a 14-year-old girl in 2014 and that he gave her money for sex. He also warned her not to say anything because it would ruin his family and his church, according to court documents. Haynes later introduced the girl to Jenkins and shared pornographic photos and videos that he had recorded, prosecutors said. Jenkins, who followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a preacher in 1994, founded Abundant Life Ministries in Toledo seven years ago. The church closed after his arrest. He began having sex with the girl supplied by Haynes in December, and later with another underage girl, an FBI agent testified. One of those girls attended his church, the agent said. Jenkins, the agent testified, had sex with the girls at his home, church office and a motel. He often recorded the acts with his phone, according to court documents. The same agent said that a third girl was 15 when she met Butler at Haynes’ church. Butler stared giving the girl rides to work and tried to touch her and convince her to have sex, she told investigators. They later had sex twice, she said according to a court document. The FBI agent said Butler admitted having sex with the girl and knowing she was underage, but he denied giving her money for sex.
