A pipeline that burst in a Colerain nature preserve last
week spilling thousands of gallons of oil is back in operation after crews
repaired a 5-inch-long crack in the bottom of the pipe. Colerain Township Fire Department Captain Steven Conn says officials shut the pipe down shortly after the
spill on March 17 and have temporarily repaired the crack. The entire pipe, which runs through the Glen Oak Nature
Preserve, will eventually be replaced.“Eventually they will come back in, stop production and
remove that section of piping according to their plan,” Conn says.
The cause of the crack remains unclear, and a Department of
Transportation investigation will take weeks to test the pipe for any chemicals
that could have caused a crack.
Crews cleaned up about 20,000 gallons of oil so far and
anticipate cleaning for another five to six days. The preserve will remain
closed, along with the nearby Obergiesing Soccer Complex, until a command
center for officials working on the leak is relocated. Representatives from
Sunoco Logistics, Mid-Valley Piping Company, the Environmental Protection
Agency, Colerain Township and Hamilton County Parks will utilize the command
center as they respond to the mess.
Twenty-four small animals have been treated after being
covered in oil, and a wildlife organization from Delaware came to Cincinnati to
help oil-soaked animals.
Officials say there are no reports of oil leaking into the
Great Miami River. Conn says the area will be tested and monitored for at least
a year after the cleanup is complete.

A newspaper article today described Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s support for a proposal to regulate Internet cafes (is this 1995?) and game parlors (is this 1955?) that offer games with cash prizes. DeWine says regulating "mom and pop" wagering institutions is of far greater importance than giving any attention to how the Buckeye State’s plethora of casinos set to open in the next few years will primarily function as conduits for recipients of government aid to piss their welfare and social security checks away one pull of the one-armed bandit at a time.

Dear Maija, I recently started drinking Hudy Delight because I think it's really novel to drink beer that was made in Cincinnati. I also think it's great that Burger is back in production even though it tastes like it has nickels in it. Anyway, I'm a little bit disappointed in Hudy after seeing their latest commercial.

We at WWE! don't always try our best. But our journalistic indifference results in harmless poop jokes and curse words, unlike Cincinnati Enquirer reporters, whose bad sense of humor often results in the public embarrassment of poor people.
