Channel 9: Cameras confiscated at Chabot event

One of us attended Rep. Steve Cabot’s town hall meeting Monday at the North Avondale Recreation Center. We picked up a free pocket-size copy of the U..S. Constitution from a stack on the table where people were filling out forms with questions for Rep. Chabot. By our estimate, roughly 2/3 of the audience were protesters wearing yellow t-shirts. They weren't a very rowdy group in our opinion. We sat in the row directly in front of a woman whose camera was seized by a Cincinnati police officer after the meeting started. She asked the officer what law was being used to confiscate her camera, but we didn’t hear him cite one. Standing nearby was a man whose camera had already been confiscated by the same officer. Just a few feet away were 2 or 3 television camera crews that captured the entire episode. Click here to see Channel’s video report of the incident, which features an interview with Tim Burke, Chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party.

Channel 9 reports that Rep. Chabot’s office has since modified their camera policy with this released statement: “Cameras not operated by credentialed media will be allowed into future town hall meetings but the public will be asked not to record residents asking the congressman delicate questions.” What’s interesting about the new camera policy is none of the questions were personally asked by residents. Instead, residents turned in forms with their questions to a Chabot aide who then read aloud only the questions he selected prior to Rep. Chabot appearing.

This YouTube video of the incident has subtitles for the dialogue between the female protester and the police officer. Anybody see a serious violation of the protester's Constitutional right(s)?

Council delays vote on health commissioner salary

The following letter to City Council from Gary Arthur, President Pro Tempe of the Norwood Board of Health, appeared on Tuesday’s council agenda. The letter describes the qualifications of the candidate selected for the health commissioner position and stated the salary offered. Mr. Arthur states, “Members of the Norwood Board of Health will be on hand at the August 23rd meeting to answer any questions you may have about Mr. King and our requests for salary and residence waiver.” Instead, no member of Board of Health was on hand to answer questions, and there were several, including: why was the salary offered $5,000 above the low end of the allowable range, do the candidate’s qualifications exceed what is necessary, and were candidates living in Norwood recruited and considered?

With none of their questions answered, council decided not to approve the salary and residence waiver and tabled the matter until the next regular council meeting on September 13. A letter from council is being sent asking the Board of Health to attend the meeting.

August 15, 2011

Ms. Jane Grote, President, and
Norwood City Council
4645 Montgomery Road
Norwood Ohio 45212

Dear Jane and Members of Council:

At special meetings in July and August 2011, the Norwood Board of Health interviewed candidates for the position of Health Commissioner. Each of the candidates had their own strengths, but ultimately the Board decided to offer the position to Bradley King, RS, MPH. As you can see from the attached resume, Mr. King is a Registered Sanitarian and has a Masters in Public Health. He is currently Director of Environmental Health for Warren County Health Department. We believe that Mr. King will make an excellent addition to our Norwood Health Department staff.

Because of his education and experience, we are requesting that Norwood City Council approve a starting pay rate of (deleted)**per year. Also, because Mr. King has children who are enrolled in school and because of the ongoing housing slump, we are also requesting that Norwood City Council waive the residence requirement for this position per Section 159.04(f) of the Norwood Codified Ordinances which states: “Any position of employment which because of the special expertise cannot be filled by a Norwood resident, or a person moving to Norwood, may be filled by a non-resident only upon application to Council by the requesting department head and such appointment is predicated upon Council’s express authorization.”

Members of the Norwood Board of Health will be on hand at the August 23rd meeting to answer any questions you may have about Mr. King and our requests for salary and residence waiver. Thank you in advance for your positive consideration of these matters.


Gary Arthur
President Pro Tempe
Norwood Board of Health

Retired police officer Robert Sorrell passed away Saturday

We want to extend our condolences to the family and countless friends of Robert Sorrell, retired Norwood Police officer of 28 years and current Clerk of Courts, who passed away Saturday at his Norwood residence. Lt. Tom Williams, Jr. told us yesterday Mr. Sorrell was, among other things, a terrific forensics expert. As a police officer, he was a member of the Bureau of Identification and collected evidence from crime scenes. When he retired from the NPD, he served for a time on our auxiliary police force before being appointed as Clerk of Courts.

Over 25 residents attend Upper Millcrest Park meeting

Guest blog by Sarah Allen

The Friends of Upper Millcrest Park held a community meeting last Thursday, August 11th at the Community Center to get neighbors' input on hopes and ideas for what more the Park could be.

The turnout was great with over 25 neighbors in attendance! The evening started out with an overview of what has been done to date (see this blog’s entry for July 20th), and then moved into everyone sharing some fond memories that they’ve had in public spaces. After that, maps of Upper Millcrest were scattered around the room and everyone gave their ideas about what they would like to see in the Park by drawing directly onto the map. The evening ended with participants rating what they felt was most important to have in the park and what should happen first in the development of the park. It was made clear that even if all of these ideas were eventually implemented, that the process would likely happen in stages because of funding constraints.

Some of the ideas were:
· A walking trail around the perimeter of the park
· Play areas for both toddlers and older children
· Some type of interactive water feature
· More seating options
· A more distinct park entryway that would include directional signage

The next step is to take all of these ideas and put them into a couple of different working plans that will then be presented to City Council's Parks and Recreation Committee and to Public Works in September to get their feedback. The Friends of Upper Millcrest will then present these ideas to the community to make sure we have buy-in for the plan. After that, we start applying for funding to various foundations and philanthropists.

The City has been very supportive of this process and will try to help make the plan a reality in whatever ways they can, knowing that they have a limited budget.

The Friends of Upper Millcrest also wanted to extend our thanks to the Community Building Institute at Xavier University who helped us facilitate a great meeting that encouraged everyone there to participate.

We will post any further meetings on this blog, or you can email us at

Superintendent Amodio: how NCS achieved excellent rating

Today’s Enquirer reports that the Southwest Ohio’s 49 school districts either improved or maintained their annual Ohio Report Card ratings. 13 districts jumped one or two categories, 25 stayed the same, and 11 dropped one or two ratings.

NCS Superintendent Rob Amodio attributed the district’s achievement of its first excellent rating to “a daily focus on student data, individuated instruction and building relationship. We just focused so much on relationships with our kids, making the content relevant and adding great rigor to our instruction.”

Mayor Williams: Let's promote NCS' EXCELLENT rating

Guest blog by Mayor Tom Williams

I have always tried to promote the positives about our city, and I have encouraged others to do the same. There are always going to be some negatives, but we need to promote and demand emphasis on Norwood's many positives. Superintendent Rob Amodio’s announcement Friday that Norwood City Schools has achieved an EXCELLENT rating on the state report card is a pure example of why we should promote and demand recognition.

This is an accomplishment that very few obtain. Rob Amodio’s goals filtered through the school administration to the teachers, the students and the parents, all of whom collectively achieved this momentus recognition of excellence. This is something everyone should celebrate, and the City will support that any way we can.

Last September, Norwood was recognized as one of 100 Best Communities for Young People. If there is ever a Best 10 Communities, Norwood belongs in it.

On the lighter side, I will be demanding an apology from utility player, bench-riding Tracey Jones.

Thomas F Williams, Mayor
City of Norwood

Special Meeting of Norwood Board of Health Wednesday

The Norwood Board of Health will be holding a Special Meeting on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 5:30 PM to discuss Health Department Finances. The meeting will be held at the Norwood Health Department at 2059 Sherman Ave.

Invitation to meeting to plan Upper Millcrest Park improvements

On Thursday August 11, a group of concerned West Norwood residents will host a community meeting in conjunction with Xavier University’s Community Building Institute, with the support of City officials. The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Norwood Community Center on the corner of Carter and Courtland Avenues. The residents hope to advance the cause of creating and implementing a master plan for Upper Millcrest Park, home to Norwood’s baseball fields but also the site of vandalism, and drug and alcohol use.

Sarah Allan, a West Norwood resident and Democratic candidate for Norwood’s city council, said of the project, “We believe that Upper Millcrest can be a positive asset for Norwood. It can help attract new families to the neighborhood and be a catalyst for community development. With the support of the City and residents, I hope we can transform the park into a beautiful and safe space.”

At Thursday’s meeting, residents of West Norwood will be asked to envision the park with the all of the features and amenities that they hope for. They will be given the chance to vote on specific elements and to prioritize specific changes. Norwood’s mayor has committed to be in attendance and has said that he hopes that the City will be able to allocate funds to the park’s improvement. He noted that citizen support for the project will increase the likelihood that the master plan will be implemented, as funds are very limited in Norwood, especially for the parks and recreation department. So the more resident support for the project on Thursday night, the better. Private and foundation funding will also be sought for the project.

Norwood police nab bank robbery suspect

According to media reports, Norwood police captured a bank robber yesterday morning only 45 minutes after he walked into the U.S. Bank on Montgomery Road and demanded cash. Police caught him at the PNC Bank on Smith Road but did not say if he was also trying to rob that bank. This Channel 12 report says the suspect left U.S. Bank empty-handed because the teller refused to give him money, but this Channel 5 report says he fled with an undisclosed amount of case. Either way, he’s in a heap of trouble.

2011 Holy Trinity Festival - August 5th, 6th, and 7th

Guest blog by Brian Mumper

Dear friends and neighbors in the Gem of the Highlands,

We invite you all to attend the 2011 version of the Holy Trinity festival. You can expect the same great food, great beverages, and great games you have come to love. This is our 4th year in the new location and we have continually improved the event based on your feedback. Our latest change was to move the date of our location back 1 week for several reasons. While we loved being the end of Norwood Week, it was also a quite stressful week for many. Festival attendees and our parishioners are also involved in many other community organizations and felt a weekend in between would yield a better rested crowd for the Festival weekend. We hope you agree that a breath of fresh air is a welcome break but still a continuation of the Norwood Week festivities.

Friday (6-midnight) with Red Idle: The Red Idle Band played on Sunday night last year and rocked it. On their website they list HT as “the rowdiest festival in the land”! Let’s live up to it!

Saturday Night (5:30-Midnight) with 3Day Rule: Thrilled to have a band that performs at Taste of Cincinnati, Party in the Park, and many other well known venues.

Sunday (3-9 p.m.) highlighting Ooh La La and the Greasers: Their 50s and 60s sound is well known throughout the area and we are excited to have them!

Sunday also features:
· The drawing for a chance at the $10,000 Grand Prize
· Happy hour prices 3-6pm
· Special kids game prices 3-6pm
· Victorian Doll House Raffle

All Weekend Long: In addition to the above, we have the following attractions …

· Great food including grilled burgers, chicken breasts, metts, bratts, Italian sausage, pizza, corn on cob, and a choice of sides during dinner hours.
· Desserts including SNOCones and Funnel Cakes
· Air conditioned gambling
· Ample Parking
· Happy Hour prices the first hour of each night
· Additional Skill games – cornhole challenge, milk jug wiffle toss, Crazy Ball, special contests throughout the festival including our famous pizza box throw, corn on cob contest, etc!
· Alumni area – anyone attending St. E’s, St. Matt’s, Sts. Peter and Paul, Gressle, Holy Trinity, and St. Nicholas are welcome to sign in and share memories.
· Little Tykes Area (kids 0-3) – play in the grass and on our toys (no charge).
“Our Homecoming”

While we are embracing our past with traditional food, games, and drinks…the most important thing is our community… our current Norwood Community as well as those that called us home in the past! Most of us can’t leave Norwood – those that were able to leave physically, cannot take Norwood from their hearts and we’d like to welcome everyone back.

Please join the largest annual event in our City and invite your new neighbors as well as those that may have moved out as we celebrate “Our Homecoming”!!!

See You Soon!!!
