Northwest Local School District announced one of its coaches at Colerain High School resigned amid allegations of inappropriate conduct

with a student. Neither the district nor staff at Colerain High School has named the coach as the investigation is ongoing. Here is the Oct. 5 news release from the district: “Northwest Local

School District regards the safety and security of our students as a top priority at all times. Recently the district received allegations of inappropriate conduct between a student and a Colerain High School coach off school

grounds. The district immediately took action to initiate an investigation, contacted the local police, and notified Children’s Services. At that time, the employee was banned from district property and prohibited from com-

municating with students and staff. We are not able to discuss the details of this case as the investigation is ongoing. The individual involved has turned in a letter of resignation and is no longer employed by the district

We will do everything within our power to deal with the issues surrounding the violations related to district policy and state law to protect our students.” Watch for updates on Cincinnati.com

Throughout 2016, there were 3,390 fire deaths in the United States – the highest number of fire fatalities since 2007. The two primary reasons for this loss of life remain the lack of working smoke detectors, and the failure to plan and practice two ways out of the home in the event of a fire. Throughout the month of October, not just during

Fire Prevention Week, the Colerain Township Department of Fire and EMS will address these issues by making smoke detectors available to Colerain households, and at the same time encourage the need for planning and practicing a fire exit plan, especially with small children, including a centralized outside meeting place for the family to assemble should there be a fire. Colerain citizens are encouraged to contact the Colerain Township Department of Fire and EMS at smokedetectors@ colerain.org or at 513-8256143 for a free inspection of their existing smoke detectors, and the free installation of new smoke detectors with ten year tamper-proof batteries should their existing units be found inoperable. On Oct. 28, the department will conduct a oneday smoke detector installation campaign in Northbrook neighborhood, an area where there have been several fire fatalities in the past five years. Specifically, department members and volunteers will canvass an area of homes on the following streets: Anaheim, Aries, Burgess, Darbidew, Elkhorn, Glenaire, Hyannis, Laverne, Libra, Pulver,

Chamber honors officers The Colerain Township Chamber of Commerce recognized the Colerain Township Department of Fire and EMS Firefighter of the Year and the Colerain Township Police Department Police Officer of

the Year at a breakfast Sept. 29. Each recipient received both a plaque from the chamber and the corresponding Commendation Medal and Ribbon from the Fire or Police Department, that will be worn on their dress uniform. The 2017 Firefighter of the Year is Firefighter Doug Eikens, a 21-year veteran of the department, currently serving as a fire inspector. Eikens has been reducing a backlog of fire inspections in area businesses due to the transfer of some fire personnel from the Inspection Bureau to Fire and EMS Operations. Eikens also helped implement use of a new tablet-based

inspection system that reduced the amount of time needed to conduct each inspection. Lieutenant Michael Owens is the 2017 Colerain Police Officer of the Year. Owens has been with the Colerain Police Department for 18 years, serving as a patrol officer, bike officer, patrol sergeant and is now the department's Support Services Commander. In that role, Owens managed the 2017 Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) on-site and reaccreditation bid. Owens ensured compliance with more than 489 standards, while overseeing both the Patrol and Support Services divisions.

use was discontinued and shortly thereafter, the wooden building was moved to another location in Colerain Township at Galbraith and Cheviot roads. When it was moved, the front roof extension was removed and the living quarters on the left side were demolished. It stood there for almost 100 years. Moving the historic Creedville Post Office/Toll Booth required special equipment and experience moving buildings. THANKS TO COLERAIN HISTORICAL SOCIETY
