Chris Finney Serves Two Masters

Chris Finney must be feeling rather schizophrenic lately.

The local attorney and arch-conservative activist is offering his services free of charge to the NAACP’s Cincinnati chapter, where he is chair of legal redress. His duties include assisting the chapter’s efforts at advancing the interests of the area’s African-American residents.

At the same time, Finney continues his legal work for ex-State Rep. Tom Brinkman Jr. and their political group, the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes (COAST). His latest effort there is a lawsuit trying to overturn the Ohio law prohibiting former state lawmakers from lobbying in Columbus for one year after they leave office.

And They’re Off!

April showers bring May flowers and the start of run/walk/roll fundraisers. Combining a worth-while cause with fitness and the great outdoors is way to stay in shape as much as it is an opportunity to lend your time and financial support to groups you believe in – toss in a few prizes and other activities and the whole family can make a day of it.

That’s what the Sixth Annual A Kid Again 5K Run/Walk is hoping you’ll do.

“A Kid Again provides fun-filled activities for children with life threatening illnesses and their families, all year long,” according to an event announcement.

The group, formerly known as Adventures For Wish Kids, “strives to enrich the lives of children with life threatening illnesses and their families by providing healing times of respite through our fun-filled group activities and destination events, which we call adventures.”

The registration fee is $25 pre-race day and $30 day of race. Proceeds will support A Kid Again.

Prizes will be awarded to:

- The team with the most team members

- The team that raises the most money

- The team with the best name

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. on May 30 at Kings Island. And for this race, early registration is its own reward – the first 500 people to register will get into Kings Island free the day of the event.

Register Online at www.akidagain.org/5k or call 513-232-5104 for more information.
