this is about my Great Aunt Connie Lives Remembered Cincinnati.Com » Lives Remembered Last Updated: 2:00 pm | Sunday, December 21, 2008 Connie Hensley was court bailiff She also ran Hamilton County GOP By Mike McQueary • mmcqueary@enquirer.com • December 21, 2008 Comments • • Print Print • ShareThis • Type: A A • Click To Listen Click-2-Listen BRIDGETOWN - Constance "Connie" Hensley was the first Republican-appointed female court bailiff in Hamilton County. Advertisement She accomplished that using a keen sense in business and political affairs she acquired through running her own company and being active in the local Republican Party. "She had a pretty good business sense and had a lot of political savvy. She was the manager for all my campaigns," said Hamilton County 1st District Court of Appeals Judge Ralph Winkler. "She was a really hard worker. Efficient, prompt and didn't offend anyone in the process." Mrs. Hensley, 86, died of a long-term illness Dec. 8 at Mercy Hospice Western Hills. During the Depression, her family moved to Harrison and opened Twilight Gardens, the first of two nightclubs her parents would own. She was in high school at the time and helped her parents run the businesses after classes. Her father, Fred Quatkemeyer Sr., also was involved in the Republican Party. After graduation, Mrs. Hensley was an office manager at Sealtest Dairy and sold refrigerators and freezers before opening her sub-contracting firm. After Winkler was promoted to Common Pleas Court, he appointed Mrs. Hensley, chairwoman of the Hamilton County Republican Party at the time, to be a bailiff in his courtroom. Although a female Democrat was already serving as another judge's bailiff at the time, Mrs. Hensley made history as the first female Republican appointed. Winkler said he met her at local political events and had grown to trust her. "I knew she was somebody I could depend on," he said. Winkler family members have participated in 21 elections since 1979 and she was involved in the majority of them, Winkler said. Mrs. Hensley continued to run her business at night for a while during this time and remained heavily involved in GOP events. When Winkler moved to Hamilton County Court of Appeals in 1999, his son, Judge Ralph "Ted" Winkler, appointed her his bailiff. She remained there into her 80s, despite health complications. "I knew her since I was 15. She was always kind of like an aunt to me, a member of our family," Judge Ted Winkler said. She would go bowling and played bingo at various places for fun and hosted several political events. "She enjoyed being active in things and being around people," said her niece, Carole Holliday. "She wasn't a stay-at-home or sit-on-the-couch kind of person." Her husband, Daniel "Dan" Hensley, died previously. Services have been held. Burial was in Sarasota Memorial Gardens, Sarasota, Fla.
1.Guys are more emotional then you think, if they loved you at one point, it'll take them a lot longer then you think to let you go, and it hurts every second that they try. 2. Guys may be flirting around all day but before they go to sleep, they always think about the girl they truly care about. 3. Guys go crazy over a girl's smile. 4. Guys will do anything just to get you to notice him. 5. Guys hate it when you talk about your ex-boyfriend or ex love-interest. Unless they're goin for the let-her-complain-to-you-and-then-have-her-realize-how-wonderful-and-nice-you-are method. 6. A guy who likes you wants to be the only guy you talk to. 7. Boyfriends need to be reassured often that they're still loved. 8. Guys don't care how gorgeous you are, if you're a bitch-- Goodbye. 9. Giving a guy a hanging message like "You know what?!..uh...nevermind.." would make him jump to a conclusion that is far from what you are thinking. And he'll assume he did something wrong and he'll obsess about it trying to figure it out. 10. Girls are guys' weaknesses. 11. Guys are very open about themselves. 12. If a guy tells you about his problems, he just needs someone to listen to him. You don't need to give advice. 13. A usual act that proves that the guy likes you is when he teases you. 14. Guys love you more than you love them. 15. Guys use words like hot or cute to describe girls. They rarely use beautiful or gorgeous. If a guy uses that, he loves you or likes you a whole hell of a lot. 16. No matter how much guys talk about asses and boobs, personality is key. 17. Guys worry about the thin line between being compassionate and being whipped. 18. Guys think WAY too much. One small thing a girl does, even if she doesn't notice it can make the guy think about it for hours, trying to figure out what it meant. 19. If the guy does something stupid in front of the girl, he will think about it for the next couple days or until the next time he spends time with the girl. 20. If a guy looks unusually calm and laid back, he's probably faking it and is spazzing inside. 21. When a guy says he is going crazy about the girl, he really is. Guys rarely say that. 22. When a guy asks you to leave him alone, he's just actually saying, "Please come and listen to me." 23. If a guy starts to talk seriously, listen to him. It doesn't happen that often, so when it does, you know something's up. 24. When a guy tells you that you are beautiful, don't say you aren't. It makes them want to stop telling you because they don't want you to disagree with them. 25. When a guy looks at you for longer than a second, he's definitely thinking something. 26. A guy has more problems than you can see with your naked eyes. 27. Don't be a snob. Guys can be intimidated and give up easily. 28. Guys talk about girls more than girls talk about guys. 29. Guys really think that girls are strange and have unpredictable decisions and are MAD confusing but somehow are drawn even more to them. 30. A guy would give his right nut to be able to read a girl's mind for a day. 31. No guy can handle all his problems on his own. He's just too stubborn to admit it. 32. Not all guys are assholes. Just because ONE is a jackass doesnt mean he represents ALL of them. 33. They love it when girls talk about their boobs. 34. When a guy hits your butt it means that he wants you sexually. 35. Even if they refuse it all guys are ticklish on the ribs. 36. Guys love neck rubs and if he lets you keep doing it ..it means that he really likes you or his neck really hurts. 37. When a guy sacrifices his sleep and health just to be with you, he really likes you and wants to be with you as much as possible. 38. Even if you dump a guy months ago and he loved you he probaly still does and if he had one wish it would be you to come back into his life. 39. Even if he yells and screams, rants and raves, if he loved you once, he still does. Even 1000 years later. ---Girls, if u don't repost this within 1 hr then you will lose the guy of your life ---Guys probably don't have enough balls 2 repost any ways. Guys if you don't repost this in one hr then you will lose the girl of your life.

Toshiba Builds 100x Smaller Micro Nuclear Reactor Toshiba has developed a new class of micro size Nuclear Reactors that is designed to power individual apartment buildings or city blocks. The new reactor, which is only 20 feet by 6 feet, could change everything for small remote communities, small businesses or even a group of neighbors who are fed up with the power companies and want more control over their energy needs. The 200 kilowatt Toshiba designed reactor is engineered to be fail-safe and totally automatic and will not overheat. Unlike traditional nuclear reactors the new micro reactor uses no control rods to initiate the reaction. The new revolutionary technology uses reservoirs of liquid lithium-6, an isotope that is effective at absorbing neutrons. The Lithium-6 reservoirs are connected to a vertical tube that fits into the reactor core. The whole whole process is self sustaining and can last for up to 40 years, producing electricity for only 5 cents per kilowatt hour, about half the cost of grid energy. Toshiba expects to install the first reactor in Japan in 2008 and to begin marketing the new system in Europe and America in 2009. -------------------------------------------------- ok ive been doing a little research into some of the stuff they will be using for this and the isotope they are going to be using is called a weapons grade lithium called lithium-6 its a rare isotope that has to be made from pure lithium. it has a lot of uses though besides nuclear weapons it can also be used as an energy source like what Toshiba is going to use it for in their 100x smaller micro nuclear reactors they are designing and building.im not able to do the calculations on money savings but from what i have been able to find out it will save the longer you use the micro reactor than to be connected to the power grid. i think it would be a great benefit to have these here since the price of heating oil is so high during the winter and the price of power used to cool every ones home and businesses is just as high, but there is a small risk of some terrorist bombing it and causing some damage to it and the area around, but if the designers design it right i dont see that being a problem. but i do see a problem of the fuel being stolen from these things and used in tactical nukes be said terrorists and that is a problem. as for everything else it looks like a great idea like i said.

Historic Whiskey May Be Poured Down the Drain for Being Sold Without a License Friday, November 16, 2007 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Here's a sobering thought: Hundreds of bottles of Jack Daniel's whiskey, some of it almost 100 years old, may be unceremoniously poured down a drain because authorities suspect it was being sold by someone without a license. Officials seized 2,400 bottles late last month during warehouse raids in Nashville and Lynchburg, the southern Tennessee town where the whiskey is distilled. "Punish the person, not the whiskey," said an outraged Kyle MacDonald, 28, a Jack Daniel's drinker from British Columbia who promotes the whiskey on his blog. "Jack never did anything wrong, and the whiskey itself is innocent." Investigators are also looking into whether some of the bottles had been stolen from the distillery. No one has been arrested. Authorities are still determining how much of the liquor will be disposed of, and how much can be sold at auction. Tennessee law requires officials to destroy whiskey that cannot be sold legally in the state, such as bottles designed for sale overseas and those with broken seals. "We'd pour it out," said Danielle Elks, executive director of the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission. The estimated value of the liquor is $1 million, possibly driven up by the value of the antique bottles, which range from 3-liter bottles to half-pints. One seized bottle dates to 1914, with its seal unbroken. Elks said it is worth $10,000 on the collectors market. Investigators are looking into whether the liquor was being sold for the value of the bottles rather than the whiskey. "Someone was making a great deal of profit," she said. Tennessee whiskeys age in charred white oak barrels, but the maturing process that gives them character mostly stops when it is bottled. A bottled whiskey can deteriorate over a long period of time, especially if it is opened or exposed to sunlight and heat. Christopher Carlsson, a spirits connoisseur and collector in Rochester, N.Y., said old vintages of whiskey in their original containers are highly prized. "A lot of these bottles are priceless," he said. "It's like having a rare painting. It's heavily collected." The raids, prompted by a tip, were conducted at two warehouses and a home in Lynchburg, about 65 miles southeast of Nashville. Another raid was at a Nashville hotel room where drinks were being served and bottles were being sold. For now, the whiskey is being stored in a Nashville vault. Elks acknowledged that pouring out the whiskey would not be a happy hour for her. "It'd kill me," she said.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20071115/wl_asia_afp/lifestyleaustraliachristmasoffbeat AFP Santas warned 'ho ho ho' offensive to women SYDNEY (AFP) - Santas in Australia's largest city have been told not to use Father Christmas's traditional "ho ho ho" greeting because it may be offensive to women, it was reported Thursday. ADVERTISEMENT Sydney's Santa Clauses have instead been instructed to say "ha ha ha" instead, the Daily Telegraph reported. One disgruntled Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm warned him not to use "ho ho ho" because it could frighten children and was too close to "ho", a US slang term for prostitute. "Gimme a break," said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids. "We are talking about little kids who do not understand that "ho, ho, ho" has any other connotation and nor should they," she told the Telegraph. "Leave Santa alone." A local spokesman for the US-based Westaff recruitment firm said it was "misleading" to say the company had banned Santa's traditional greeting and it was being left up to the discretion of the individual Santa himself.
Longtime Reds announcer Joe Nuxhall has died. He passed away at Mercy Fairfield Hospital at 10:55 p.m. Thursday. They have not released the cause of death. The 79-year-old had been in the hospital since Monday for treatment of pneumonia, a low pulse rate and low white blood count. He was also undergoing treatment for his fourth bout with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Nuxhall was scheduled to undergo surgery for a pacemaker Friday. Joe was just 15-years-old when he pitched his first game for the Reds. He set a record of being the youngest person to play Major League Baseball. The two time National League All-Star actually led the League in shutouts in 1955. After ending his career as a Reds baseball player, he moved right into the Reds' announcing booth. He spent nearly 40 years broadcasting Reds games. Nuxhall is a local legend who also lent his name to help out various causes, especially in Fairfield where he lived. Just this week, Butler County officials, members of the Community and Nuxhall's family launched a campaign to get the Ol Lefthander into Baseball's Hall Of Fame. He was nominated for the Ford Frick Award. Marty Brenneman also voiced his support for his longtime partner in the booth. The two called games together for more than three decades. Nuxhall was inducted into the Reds Hall Of Fame in 1968. Nuxhall was involved in a number of issues in Fairfield. He was honored during halftime at a Fairfield boy's basketball game a couple years ago. He was presented with a plaque for his contributions to Fairfield's Character Education Initiatives. "We can always teach them to swing a bat and teach them to throw a baseball but respect is a big thing," said Nuxhall. "Because when they gather respect then the become better citizens." He was also recognized for helping pass the Fairfield school levy in November 2005. (FAIRFIELD, OH) -- Long-time Reds Announcer and former player Joe Nuxhall has died. He passed away late Thursday night at the Mercy-Fairfield Hospital. Joe's family was at the hospital last evening. Nuxhall, known as the "ol left hander" was the youngest pitcher in modern baseball history. He was 15 years old when he pitched his first game in 1944. He began his second career as a Reds radio announcer in 1967. Joseph Henry Nuxhall was born in Hamilton, Ohio on July 30, 1928. Recently Nuxhall has been battling cancer. He was awaiting a pacemaker at the Mercy-Fairfield Hospital when he died. FOX19 Morning News will have more information as it becomes available. From the Associated Press: Joe Nuxhall, who was the youngest player in major league history and the beloved "old left-hander" on Cincinnati Reds radio broadcasts, died overnight following a bout with cancer, the team said Friday. He was 79. Nuxhall's health problems multiplied in recent years but couldn't keep him away from the game or the broadcast booth for long. He had surgery for prostate cancer in 1992, followed by a mild heart attack in 2001. The cancer returned last February, when Nuxhall was preparing for the Reds' spring training in Sarasota, Fla. The broadcaster called some games last season even though his left leg was swollen by tumors. He was hospitalized again this week. He retired as a full-time radio broadcaster after the 2004 season, the 60th anniversary of his historic pitching debut. Nuxhall and play-by-play announcer Marty Brennaman described the Big Red Machine's two World Series titles in the 1970s, Pete Rose's return as player-manager and then banishment for gambling in the 1980s, and another World Series championship in 1990. Nuxhall's place in baseball lore was secured the moment he stepped onto a big-league field. With major league rosters depleted during World War II, he got a chance to pitch in relief for the Reds on June 10, 1944. No one in modern baseball history has played in the majors at such a young age - 15 years, 10 months, 11 days old. He got two outs against St. Louis before losing his composure, then went eight years before pitching for the Reds again. "When you think of all the individuals that played at the major league level and you're the youngest in the history of the game and in the Guinness Book of Records, it does make you in awe of it," Nuxhall said on the 50th anniversary of his debut. He got the chance purely by chance. Nuxhall grew up in nearby Hamilton, Ohio, and was still too young to shave when the Reds were looking for wartime replacement players. They came to see his father, Orville, who pitched in a Sunday league in Hamilton. "My dad could throw hard," Nuxhall said. "They were really scouting him. Almost by accident, they found me." Nuxhall was big for his age - 6-foot-3, around 190 pounds - and could throw 85 mph. The Reds offered a contract, and Nuxhall's parents let him join the team when junior high classes let out in 1944. He spent most of the time watching from the bench, assuming he'd never get into a game. The Reds were trailing Stan Musial's St. Louis Cardinals 13-0 after eight innings on June 10, 1944, when manager Bill McKechnie decided to give the kid a chance. Nuxhall was so rattled when summoned to warm up that he tripped on the top step of the dugout and fell on his face in front of 3,510 fans at Crosley Field. He was terrified when it came time to walk to the mound. "Probably two weeks prior to that, I was pitching against seventh-, eighth- and ninth-graders, kids 13 and 14 years old," he said. "All of a sudden, I look up and there's Stan Musial and the likes. It was a very scary situation." Nuxhall walked one and retired two batters before glancing at the on-deck circle and seeing Musial. Nuxhall unraveled - Musial got a line-drive single, and the Cardinals scored five runs as the young pitcher lost his ability to throw a strike and failed to get another out. "Those people that were at Crosley Field that afternoon probably said, 'Well, that's the last we'll see of that kid,"' Nuxhall said. The Reds sent him to the minors. Eight years later, he was back with the Reds, picking up on a career that eventually got him into the team's Hall of Fame. He spent 15 of his 16 big-league seasons with the Reds, going 135-117 before his retirement in 1966. A year later, Nuxhall started doing radio broadcasts, describing games in a slow-paced, down-home manner that caught on with listeners. Brennaman became the play-by-play announcer in 1974, and the "Marty and Joe" tandem spent the next 28 seasons chatting about their golf games, their gardens and some of the biggest moments in franchise history. Brennaman made the broadcasters' wing of baseball's Hall of Fame with his blunt, outspoken style; Nuxhall rarely produced controversy with his folksy manner. They had one high-profile moment together. Both were summoned to commissioner Bart Giamatti's office in 1988 because of their on-air comments after Rose bumped umpire Dave Pallone and was ejected. Angry fans threw debris on the field for 15 minutes as Brennaman harshly criticized the umpire. Nuxhall became more critical as his broadcasting career wound down. He created a stir in 2001 by suggesting on the air that Barry Larkin was no longer capable of playing shortstop. Larkin, the team captain at the time, replied that he was hampered by injuries. Just as Brennaman is known for his "This one belongs to the Reds" proclamation after a win, Nuxhall developed a signature signoff. He concluded postgame interviews by saying, "This is theold left-hander, rounding third and heading for home," a saying that is illuminated across the top of the Reds' administration building.
