Can President Trump Break Brent Spence Bridge Gridlock? A

ll that ghoulish talk of “American carnage” made some of us cringe as we watched Donald Trump’s inauguration address. But there was one thing that some of us who did not vote for our new president could applaud—his promise to “rebuild our country,” with a focus on crumbling and neglected infrastructure. As states that helped provide Mr. Trump’s “huuuge” electoral college victory, shouldn’t Ohio and Kentucky be first in line as all this building takes place? And while the president spoke of new roads, rails and bridges, what about some of those older, big ticket items that have been moldering here without a plan to fix or replace them? Exhibit A is the Brent Spence Bridge. The bridge was designed to handle 82,000 cars and trucks per day. Now, 54 years later, the bridge is used by about 186,000 vehicles daily. The bridge hasn’t been painted in 24 years. Peeling paint and rust just adds to the bridge’s backcountry charm, right? But watch out for those car-crushing concrete chunks falling from the sky when you tailgate before Bengals’ games! All that additional traffic has caused more accidents—averaging two every week as all those cars, trucks and their texting drivers squeeze through what has become a choke point on the interstate connecting Michigan, Florida and all those states in between. As Brent Spence Bridge “carnage” accumulates, the politicians have waded in. Obama stood beneath the bridge in 2011, urging Congress to pass an infrastructure bill that would fund a replacement. The GOP Congress said, “Never mind.” Governors Kasich (R-OH) and Beshear (D-KY) authored a plan to finance a replacement using a “public/private partnership” that would require tolls. Kentuckians had embraced a toll bridge across the river in Louisville, where most of the traffic crosses from Indiana. But they were outraged at the

concept of Kentuckians paying to cross the river for jobs on the Ohio side. The election of anti-toll Gov. Matt Bevin sent planners back to the drawing board. When candidate Trump brought his media circus to town last summer he promised to replace the bridge. Documents prepared by his transition team, based on input from the nation’s governors, rank it No. 2 on a list of 50 Emergency and National Security Projects totaling $137 billion that would launch the president’s infrastructure plan. The transition team’s summary quotes a $2.5 billion price tag for the bridge, creating 2,500 jobs. Several other Ohio projects also make the list, including lock improvements on the Ohio River and a $2 billion National Research Lab for Infrastructure to be located in Columbus. But does the president’s promise of more spending on infrastructure mean there is a new bridge in Greater Cincinnati’s future? As the first 100 days of the new administration slip away, why hasn’t the GOP Congress moved on the president’s infrastructure plan? Our local congressional delegation should be behind this investment on their home turf. Who could be more influential than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Kentucky senator Rand Paul in bringing home the bacon, or, in this case, steel and asphalt? Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown is on board, but

what about Cincinnati’s own Sen. Rob Portman, or Reps. Chabot and Wenstrup? One problem may be the GOP’s knee jerk reaction against either “budget busting” spending or any tax increase. Typically, bridge funding comes from the Highway Trust Fund, filled primarily by an 18.4-cent federal gas tax that has not been increased in decades. As gas mileage has gone up, gas tax receipts have flat lined. Without an increase in the gas tax, the fund is running on fumes. Some Republicans, and Trump, say they want infrastructure to be funded through private investment, encouraged by generous tax credits. But that sort of “public/ private” funding scheme—proposed by Governors Kasich and Beshear—requires a revenue stream to pay off the investors. So we’re back to those dreaded tolls. Finally, there is the complication of Mayor Cranley’s decision to tweak Trump and declare Cincinnati a “sanctuary city.” Will that election-year gambit by the mayor cause the bridge to lose its No. 2 slot on the president’s emergency project list? Those of us on the Ohio side of the river who took heart in the president’s promise to build all that new stuff may have a very long wait before we have a more reliable path to CVG. n Don Mooney is an attorney, a past member of the Cincinnati Planning Commission and is active in local politics. w w w.

Tristate Meeting and Event Planner Guide

Event Manager Lori Campbell-Fuller, center, with members of the Bell Event Centre staff



or a truly special one-of-a-kind event the Bell Event Centre offers a gorgeous building dominated by beautiful, stained-glass windows, vaulted ceilings, hand-painted murals, marble and terrazzo flooring. Perfect for wedding ceremonies, receptions or corporate functions, the Bell Event Centre is located in the former St. Paul’s Church at 444 Reading Road in Cincinnati, across the street from Jack Cincinnati Casino. The church was originally built in 1850 and was restored by The Verdin Company, says Brooke Cafeo, operations

manager of the Bell Event Centre. In addition to the beautiful features of the building, the Bell Event Centre stands out in the crowded event-rental business through its focus on service and its outstanding food options, says Cafeo. “We strive to have the best service,” she says. And the food offered at the facility is exceptional, says Cafeo. “Everyone that comes here says, ‘This is the best food we’ve ever had,’” she says. The quality of the food is the direct result of employing an executive chef, says Cafeo. “We can do buffets, plated, station menus, but we can also customize and create menus as well,” says Cafeo. “We can accommodate anyone’s dietary request. That’s the perk of having an executive chef.” Another perk for patrons is that the staff at Bell Event Centre handles everything inhouse, says Cafeo. “We handle the set-up, tables, linens, chairs. It all comes included in the package,” she says. In addition, all

service is provided with fine china, glassware and silverware, says Cafeo. Service staff includes chefs, carvers, captains, servers, bartenders and coat check. Customers also get a day-of coordinator as part of the Bell Event Centre’s package, says Cafeo. Day-of coordination includes supervision and assistance for the set up, unlimited consultations through email or phone, assistance at a wedding rehearsal and a wedding day coordinator for up to eight hours, she says. The facility can accommodate up to 300 people for a wedding reception and up to 250 people for a ceremony and reception. The facility also has a cobblestone courtyard with city view, as well as photography, she says. The Bell Event Centre has free, on-site, secured parking, says Cafeo. Security is provided for the entire event and security personnel will help guests with parking and also will direct and help guests to the facility’s handicapped ramp. The Bell Event Centre hosts about 130 events a year, says Cafeo. “I would say the majority is [wedding] ceremony and reception,” she says. n w w w.

INDIANA WESLEYAN WELCOMES FIRST FOOTBALL PROGRAM Football is coming to Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall of 2018. The Board of Trustees’ approval of the addition makes football the first male sport added to the Marion, Ind., location since 1970. The sport becomes the 18th intercollegiate sport at Indiana Wesleyan. The team will compete in the Mid-States Football Association. Within the MSFA are two divisions, the Midwest and Mideast. Each division champion earns an automatic bid to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics National Championship Series. “The MSFA is proud to accept Indiana Wesleyan University into our membership,” says Gary Newsome, MSFA Commissioner, following unanimous approval by the 13 MSFA institutions. “IWU’s strong academic and athletic programs will be a good fit in the MSFA.” Jordan Lang, who has coached at Wheaton College for the past five years, will lead the Wildcats as head coach. Lang spent three seasons as the defensive coordinator at Wheaton, and in 2015 his defense was ranked 12th in the nation. Lang has finished recruiting his first class of athletes

and is now focusing on rising high school seniors. In order to become a winning football program, Lang says, “We’re going to focus on ourselves and being the best we can. If we stay focused hopefully that will translate to success on the field.” The Wildcats’ new stadium is set to be ready by the start of the team’s fall 2018 debut. It will have a capacity of 2,500 seats and the playing field will be dug three feet deep to give the stadium a bowl design.

I hope those of you asked to participate will be willing and eager to help select the next president of our outstanding university.” The university plans to host open forums to give students, faculty, and community members a chance to express their comments and concerns about the search. The school issued Request for Proposals for a Presidential and Executive Search Consultant to assist in the selection process. The committee will begin the interview process this summer and submit a list of finalists to the board, which picks the new president. The schedule puts a new president in office by early fall semester. Although the schedule is aggressive, Boehne says, “The Board’s goal is to secure a president whose talents best fit with NKU’s aspirations for the future. Brief or long.

MIAMI UNIVERSITY CONTINUES TO UPDATE OXFORD CAMPUS Over the past decade, Miami University has consistently updated its Oxford campus, and this year is no different. The university has multiple projects planned to improve campus for students and faculty alike. Miami previously unveiled its David and Anita Dauch Indoor Sports Center and this spring the Athletic Performance Center was opened. The new center overlooks the north end zone in Yager Stadium. The center features medical/athletic training facilities, which were provided through 80

an affiliation with Mercy Health. The Miami football team, softball team, tennis team, and field hockey team will use the weight room. The project, which was donor funded, cost roughly $25 million. The building also features a new locker room, players’ lounge, auditorium and coaches’ offices. Jude Killy, deputy athletic director, says, “The center consolidates treatment to one spot. The reality is even with the other weight room on campus, we have too many student athletes. The center redistributes the demand.” In addition to the new athletic center, the school is adding a dorm and is also moving forward with phase two of the Armstrong Student Center. Withrow Court, which was home to club and intramural teams, cost too much to renovate and was demolished. Instead of spending $4 million to improve the building, Miami decided to destroy it and start fresh by building a dorm from the ground up. In 2015 Miami experienced a housing shortage due to a larger-than-expected freshman class of 4,000 students. At the time, residence halls on the north quad were closed for renovations leaving Miami without a place to house students. The new dorm will hopefully help Miami avoid another shortage. The doors of the Armstrong Student Center first opened in January of 2014 and replaced the Shriver Center. The new student center was made possible by a donation of $15 million from Mike Armstrong,

a Miami alumnus. The next phase of the project costs $23 million and will add an atrium in the area between the east wing of the building and Culler Hall. The new east wing will feature meeting rooms, a new coffee shop and a bookstore outpost. Student government will also have senate chambers in the wing and career services will be relocated to the building. In addition to having spaces for students and faculty to work, the wing will also feature an entertainment venue. The Red Zone will be filled with games like pool and air hockey as well as televisions and a small stage for performances and karaoke nights.

THOMAS MORE PRESIDENT JOINS NAICU ACCOUNTABILITY COMMITTEE Thomas More College recently announced that its president, David Armstrong, has been selected to serve on a committee for the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU). His term on the accountability committee will last 3 years. NAICU is the only national organization that works with private, nonprofit universities on current issues. The organization began in 1976 and serves to be a voice in Washington, D.C. There is only one Ohio university represented at NAICU, and that is the Cleveland Institute of Art. Armstrong, who has been president at Thomas More since 2013, already serves as the board chair for the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities.

WARREN COUNTY CAREER CENTER OPENS NEW LAB Electromechanical technicians, machinists, and tool/die makers are some of the most sought-after jobs in Ohio. The Warren County Career Center (WCCC) wants to help with filling those jobs, which is why it recently opened a new robotics and advanced manufacturing education collaborative lab. The renovated lab offers equipment and training that could be used in any program offered at WCCC including electricity, electric motors, hydraulics, pneumatics, logic controllers, robotics, engraving, mechanical drives, programming, computer technology, dimensional measuring and print reading. The funding for the new lab came from a

$500,000 grant given to WCCC by the statewide Advanced Manufacturing STEM/ Career Technical Education Consortium, which is led by Tri-Rivers Career Center. Some of the new equipment includes a Fanuc Fenceless Robot, a Yaskawa Robot, a Computerized Numerical Control Milling Certification (CNC) Cart, a CNC Turning Certification Cart, five Micro 850 PLC controller workstations and more. According to WCCC, this field is expected to have 6 percent growth in the upcoming years. The median annual wage for an electromechanical technician is $53,340 and machinists along with tool/ die makers make $42,100 on average. The lab will be available for both WCCC high school and adult students.

GATEWAY COLLEGE EXPANDS ITS NURSING PROGRAM Gateway Communit y and Technical College will be expanding its nursing program in the upcoming school year. On Feb. 14, Gateway announced that it would be adding 24 students to a new

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a need of 525,000 nurses by the year 2022. “Gateway Community and Technical College recognizes the needs of our community, students and the nursing profession,” says Melanie Stallkamp, associate professor and nursing program director. According to its website, 100 percent of Gateway nursing students in 2015 passed the 2016 National Council Licensure Exam, which gives students the license to actually practice. This is the second year that Gateway has had a 100 percent passing rate for nursing students. Gateway Community and Technical College is the only public, two-year institution in Northern Kentucky. Gateway currently only admits students once a year, in December. However, with a growing demand and number of applicants looking to join the nursing the program, Gateway hopes to change that.

“We want to make sure every student finds an educational pathway that is right for them,” says Monica Posey, president of Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Students at Cincinnati State will be able to complete their associate degree while applying those credits towards getting a bachelor’s degree at the University of Cincinnati more easily. The University of Cincinnati will be adding a welcome program for those particular students transferring from Cincinnati State as well as offer online orientation and an app to make the transfer process easier. This free app will include a checklist, campus maps, student life and safety information as well as campus resources. “It is important to have all of our transfer students feel supported,” say Eileen Strempel, senior vice provost for academic affairs at UC. UC hopes to create a clear path for students transferring, and the “Articulation Guides” will outline their requirements and the credit equivalencies for students.
