1. The NCS website has these pictures of the Allison chess champs Jen Seurkamp told us about in her 4/11/08 blog below.

2. The Bengals website has the full story on how Norwood firefighter Jeff Lackmeyer was able to get autographed footballs and other Bengals items for the Indian Mound Café fundraiser he organized last Saturday to benefit the families of the two fallen Colerain firefighters. Late Thursday morning, just two days before the event, injured Bengals linebacker Eric Henderson got word Jeff needed help and immediately went into overtime, quickly buying the footballs to get his teammates’ autographs before they left town for the weekend‘ He also persuaded the equipment manager to donate visors and the marketing department to donate banners and towels.

3. The Enquirer published this informative article by Bill Graff, Norwood Citizens on Patrol Chairman, in which he details exactly what Citizens on Patrol volunteers do to keep our community safer. If you’d like to become a COP volunteer, call Lt. Tom Williams, the NPD’s Community Affairs Officer, at 458-4545 or attend the April COPP’s meeting this Monday, 4/21/08, at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Center, 1810 Courtland Avenue.
