'SistaHood' Returns to WAIF

Ending a seven-month suspension from the air, The SistaHood Show is returning to its weekly berth at WAIF (88.3 FM) beginning today.

The program, co-hosted by Victoria Straughn and Crystal Allen, was a casualty of the ongoing strife at the community radio station between many longtime volunteer programmers and Board Chairman Donald Shabazz, about how he manages the station.

Paperless Junk

Going paperless – using e-mail, reading documents on line and other such electronic alternatives – is supposed to help save trees and reduce garbage going to landfills. But what happens when the computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, modem and all of the other electronic stuff becomes obsolete?

To keep that stuff out of your local landfill, Tri-County Mall (11700 Princeton Pike, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45246) will play host to an earth-day related event that gives anyone a free method of environmentally responsible equipment disposal. On April 18 (Saturday) 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will collect enough “computer electronics only” to fill two trucks.


No word on how big the trucks are, but one would guess they’ll be large enough to display the company logo.

Explaining OTR's Messy Mound

Many motorists and pedestrians in Over-the-Rhine have wondered what it was, and now CityBeat has the answer. “It” refers to the nearly three-story high mound of dirt located at the corner of Liberty and Race streets.

The dirt, which first appeared a few months ago and has grown in size ever since, lies behind a chain-link fence on a vacant parcel. Some concrete barricades have been pushed against the fence to give it extra support at containing the mess as it expands, but stray bits of soil have spilled over onto the sidewalk and street.

Despite Setback, IIN Musters On
